Tbe book is more lnterestlng. accordlngly, if nat more TBlliahlr. for Its wealth of quo'a t^ons than for tb. author's concluslons, which, | .-ver greatly they may r-pjca! to the reader's i i sense. do not always seem logically to follow from the data he has rccumulated. Two of his concluslons, certainly* r.o one will be likely to gainsay, namely, "that man thrlves on eln'.ost any kind of dlet common to a nation, the greneral conditions being favorable," and "that frugal persons and natlons llve better and longer ?haa oth.rs and are more free from dlsorders of : 1 or body.*' If these principles were all that he had been able to educe from his studles, bis work, however entertaintng, might well bc re gttr.ei as one of supererogation.

Mr. Jtusseh has at least convlr.eed himself "that hoth races and lndividuals living entlrely on j)la:.t food. or on plant food with the addltion tcf eggs and milk. are stronger and happier, other things being equal, than races and indivlduals living chlefly on the flesh of beasts " It is lnterestlng to note that the author claims to have commenced his investigatlons wlth no frrevious blaa ln favor of a diet which excludea flesh, but to have been converted to that be? lief through bl6 studies. Yet lt is almost 1m ^osslble to free one's self of the impre.-sior. that a aentlmental shrinking from the taking of ani xral life is, after all, at the bottom of his oref ercr.ee for a mainly vege-tab'..- diet. or has, at any rate, rendered his conversb.n the more easy. Thus. referring to the "interminahl- meian ahol)-" of the <_bl?.go slaughter houses, *'where hundreds of thousands of ?>.-.. n and pigs are yearly kllled," he says: Tbe eroett-f ar.d paln are less for each <*reature thar. ln ihe private yards. but the sum of horror and s .ffer'ng the scale of butc'nery, are appalllng.

A FRUSTRATED EMPIRE. A Timely Work on the Politieal History of Scandinavia. SCANDINAVIA. A Politieal History of Denmark Norway and Sweden, from 1513 to 1900. With five maps. By R. NIsbet Bain. 12mo. pp. x, 460. The Macmlllan Company. Mr. Baln's contribution to the "Cambridge Historical Serles" is issued at a moment when his comprehensive survey of the Interrelated historles of the three northern countrles of Eu? rope is partlcularly welcome. In a compass not j too extended for the needs of the busy student of affairs he has outlined, without sacriflce of their picturesque and dramatic features, the events, eovering a perlod of nearly four hun? dred years, leading up to the present politieal crisis on the Scandinavian peninsula. Taking up the thread of his narratlve where it breaks off ln his volume. in the European dispatches to the newspapers, one is able clearly to see how the severance of the too tenuous tie between Sweden and Korwsy is but the logical outcome of the illogical relations that have mainly sub sisted between all three of the Scandinavian kingdoms in modern times. Tbe first sentence in the volume furnishes a key not only to the present situation, but to the illuminatlve manner in which the author has treated his subject throughout. "The politieal history of Scandi? navia," he says, "is the history of the frustra tion of a great Baltlc empire." and he then pro cer-ds to show how the three countrles, despite their tendency, through proplnquity. through <-ommunity of interests and through ,-aeial char I acteristics, to combine in the closest kind of a hegemony. have been kept apart by forces. which he proceeds to eonsider, until these have verted a naturaliy centrlpetal lnto an hls i torlcally centrlfugal motion. The personal rivalries and Jealousies of a j scries of notable rulers and statemakers were rtspnnalhla for the disintegration of United S.-andinavia. beginning with the "Stockholm Massacre" of 1520, and contlnued in eleven flerce | wars between Denmark and Sweden, during nearly three hundred yeare. Despite the eon ; stant drain on the inconsiderable resources of ' both countries. each in turn attalned the rank of a great power; in the case of Sweden only j to be destroyed "by the banded might of Eastern j and Central Europe after a twenty years' ! struggle." Thus these materlally unimportant ! kingdoms came to exercise an Influence vastly ? iipproportionate to their size and wealth upon the politieal history of Europe, through the con atructlve genius of a successlon of "exeeptlon atly great men, master magieians of statecraft," arhoae individual abllltlea served, if not actu ally to overcome, at least effectively to suspend for a time. the operatlon of natural laws. The conslderation of these forces, personal as well as national. is full of dramatic interest, in which admiration for individual achievement ls set off against regret that so much effort should have i cme to naught. But natural laws cannot be defieri forever. and whatever Sweden, Denmark j and Norway might have aecomplished, if work? ing with a united purpose, was eventually lost to them through ihe nacesatty they were under of -seeking costly outside assistance to maln tain their autonomous relations one against an? other. So far as Norway ls concerned, her autonomy has been, lndeed, but a nomlnal one, and she has been ever forced to aocept as her King the ruler of one or other of her more powerful neighbors. For more than three hundred years ber politieal affillations were with Denmark, with whom she had deflnitely thrown in her lot es early as the middle of the nfteenth century. Among those inaritime nations the narrow channel of the Skager Back was regarded as less of a g-O-Ogics] boundary than the mountain barrier that forms the backbone of the Scandinavian Peninsula. Through all the perlod of atorm and stress, eonsequently. Nor way's close association with Denmark through a common monarch had strengthened her an tagi.nlsm to Sweden, to whom she found her? self suddenly and uneeremonlously t;:rr.ed over by the Treaty cf Btockho'm (btnrcb C. 1S13). Holding that "lf Iheir *aw___ monMeh, King Frederick. had mleat*.! them from __elr alle giance, they had an rrral'e i?.:..e rl--'it to dispose of their own destinles." the X aronagiaBa lgnored the proclamation of Bernadot'-*, who had lately beoii cbosen Crown Prince of Sweden, promloing them a oonstftntion and the prlvilege of self taxation. and rose in defer-.ee of their indepen dence. It did not take* long, however. for the former French marshal 1" gain from the Xor weglans themselves the crown that had already been transierred to hlm without their consent. The < onstitutioii adopted and accepted deelared the country to ba a free and independent king dom. united to Bwedea under a common King. It was lb its terms as liberai as could be de sireu and rseoncUod the peoplo to an allianoe. which they hai neltber sought nor deoired.

Cbubbb of frlctlon have con stantly arisen. however, through what the N"r WSgfsnfl '-lalm t.> !.'? the persistcnt efforts of Sweden To encrosch on their natlonal preroga tlvis.

With Russia at her very door. an lndependent Norway would be far BBOre danger ous to Sweden than an Indepen lent Ireland would ever be to Great Britain. ? To arrive at a dear Idea of the present sltua tlon, the latter portlon of Mr Bain's book should be read In conjunctlon wlth the little volume recently put forth by Frldtjof Nansen. entitled "Norway and the Unlon with Sweden," and H. L. Braekstad's even smaller survey of "The I'onstltutlon of the Klngdom of Norway." whlch brlefly and ably present the other side of the question. It seems strange that Mr. Bain should have ignored the logic of his own book to the effect that. whether or not we regard the nctlon of Norway In this particular Instance as Justlflable, the hlstorlcal tendency toward the separatlon of the two countrles was Inevltably stronger than the Act of Unlon of lMlo. BOOKS AXD AUTHORS. Current Talk About Things Present and to Come. A correspondent of a Western paper tells how F. Marion Crawford has fled in his yacht Alda elghty mlles down the Calabrlan coast to seek refuge from the horde of "hero worshlppers." If they are all as effusive as the correspondent, Mr. Crawford'a action needs no further explana tion. The Castelletto de San Nlcolo, ln whlch the author barrlcad.s himself. makes up in the thickness of its walls tthey are eight feet through) for its lack of altitude (it is only two stories hlgh). A castelletto, indeed. Mrs. Humphry Ward. it ls announced, pro poses to make a visit to the United States ln December, and it Is hlnted that the prlme reason of her coming is because she has decided on an American heroine for the novel she has con tracted to write for the Harpers. No suggestion ls glven of what lncldent '. i our polltical or social history she has selected for the basis of her story. Mrs. Ward has already drawn at least one American girl in her books?Luey, the New-England girl in "Eleanor"?but she waa seen away from her natural envlronment. It will be lnterestlng to observe how long Mrs. Ward will requlre to absorb the necessary "at? mosphere" for a tale of American life and manners. A new collectlon of poems by Dr. Minot J Savage ls now announced on the fall 11st of G. P. Putnam's Sons. wlth the title "America to England." This volume is selected from the writings of many years. and represents the best of the author's p-*tical work. The book derlves its title from a poem read at the banquet to Ambassador Whitelaw Reld on the eve of his departute for the Court of St. James's. 'Lords of the Soll" is the tltle of a novel soon to bo brought out by the C. M. Clark Publish lng Company. The story derlves Its chief in? terest?prlor to its publlcation?from its oddly assoclated authorshlp. It ls the work of Mrs. Lydla A. Jocelyn, the widow of the so-called "Martyr Missionary of the Black Hills," who was slaln by the Indians ln Peadwood, S. D., in 1S7G, and Nathan J. Cuffee, a stone blind, full blooded Amerind. We are informed by the publisher that "lnstead of lettlng her traglc ex? perience prejudlce her against the red men, Mrs. Jocelyn has champloned the Indlan cause ln her novel, showlng ln vlvld colors the gross in Justice and rapacity of the early white settlera in their treatment of the magnanimous and un suspectlng *lords of the soil." " The story deals wtth the life of the Indians and white settlers of Long Island and Shelter Island ln the seven teenth century. Nathan J. Cuffee ls a llneai de scendant of the Montauk chleftain whose traglc career is an essential element ln the plot. and Mrs. Jocelyn traces her ancestry back to Major Gordon, one of the flrst settlers on Long Island. Another book about the home and haunta of the Quaker poet has Just been issued by the Advance Publishlng Company, of Blrmlng ham, Ala. It is both written and illustrated by Eth*l Armes, a resident of that clty, who was formerly engaged ln newspaper work ln Chl oag* and W .shfiTktto:*. "Mldsummer in Whlt tler's Country" ls the title of the little volume. whlch ls the outcome of a summer spent at Sandwlch Centri, and of subsequent browsi-ig among books hearing on the legends and de scrlptlons of the reglon. Miss Armes writes with keen feeling for her subject, and Indulges in much picturesque Imagery in g'ving her im pressions of the landscape, as may be seen ln Ihe following quotatlon: Like slender white threads the paths eurve down under the traveller's feet and wind off Into the deep forest?maglc ways to fair Rosamond. En chantera appear ln the snape of wonderful vlstas, now far ahead or far back or to right or left, to lure the ptlgrlm off the trail.

While Miss Armes has been celebratlng Whit tler ln hlghly appreclatlve terms. another Southron?lt is a safe guess?Catherine Frances 4'avanagh. has been -nore prosaleally employed In digglng out the "real story" of his patrlotic and popular heroine.

This ls her version of the story: The Tnouse of Barbara Frletchle was not on the line of march. and lt was, therefore. hlghly im probable that any general. 1'nton or Confederate, would advance against lt for the purpose of shoot lng either ber or her flag. War, ln September. 1SV*2, was too serlous an affalr to waste shot on old ladtes who lived on side streets. The real hero? ine of the flag lncldent was a young woman a Mrs. Mary Quantrtlle. who lived on Patrick-st. According to the testimony of rellable persons wbo lived In Frederlck during the war, this Mary Qunn trllle was one of those young and ardent patriots who go out of their way to shake the flag ln tbe fnce of the enemy. "That crazy Mary Quantrllle," tb. v were wont Io say. "Will get Us all kllled yet. or sent over the Une. for her flag wavlng."
