Cant. Kidd was a figure In New York history be

story, red-brick being, hot In politics and noisy
with the Salvation Army. In bis day MInetta
Creik br a good reputation; It behaved ltsolf
openly and abovo board, kept out of the collars,
and Is said to havo had flsh In It. Although the
slaters ttcro nctlvo, and brought from tho Con
to and Kthlopla all of their Dccullar freight that
was necessary to supply the vigorous and thriv
ing colony, thcro wns not as yet any MInetta
lane. No publlo conveyances, very shabby, and
habitually lire minutes late, mado their rheu
matic way down Christopher strcot to tho rail
road ferry, for tho sufficient reason that there
mi no Christopher street, no railroad, and no
ferry, though tho conveyances themselves, no
doubt.were already constructed, and only await
ed their opportunity. The studio In Tenth street
was not built, and .YeH's, In Sixth nvonuc, had
naturall) not yet been opened by the Alsatian
patriot who exiled himself at the-conclusion of
the Franco-Prussian war of 1871. What there
vc. In the S'lnth ward at that remote time, and
what It looked like, may bo agreeably gathered
from Augusta Campbell Watson's romance,
" Beyond the City's dates" (E. V. Dutton & Co.).
It nns an easy enough matter to be beyond the
gates in question In those days, of course, for
they were at Wall street, and any place north
of that point was beyond them. Harlem was a
remote community, and Gabo Caso's was tho
New World equivalent for tho Pillars of Her
cules. Freida. the oretty daughter ot an opu
lent Dutch farmer, who lived far beyond the
gates. In tho Donery, ot course, somewhere In
the neighborhood of tho Cooper Union. Is the
heroine of this romance. She wore multltu-'
dlnous petticoats, taking therefrom, naturally,
a somewhat dumpy appcaranco; and, though It
Is rot explicitly so declared. It Is tolbe supposed
that she sweetened her coffee by means of a Dre
llminary bite of tho common lumps of sugar
which swung at tho endot a string above the
family table, for tt would certainly bo a per
verse early Dutch heroine who neglected so to
do. There was rich cream and butter in the
Bonory farmhouses of those days, and excellent
cheese, and tho happy occupants marched from
their spinning wheels to breakfast and supper
to tho deep, slow muslo of tho cowbells.
Freida was in love with the nephew ot
a Patroon who had great possessions and
power just across tho East River, In Long
Island. He must have lived in the navy yard,
and very likely had the right to cut firewood as
far away as Jamaica. The nephew was an un
worthy person, the companion of pirates. leagued
with Capt. Kidd himself. Ho drank and gam
bled, too; but he was handsome, with a dash
and swagger, dark face, and vibrant voice, and
theso fortuitous qualities have always played
the d-uce In love. Freida at a church fair
gave him a nosegay that had been bestowed
noon her by an altogether worthy lover, a
strapping fellow, the strongest man in Sow
York, and the rascal would have married
her if ho hid not murdered his uncle
anil basely left her to bo tried for the
crime, u is crcaitaue to tne Heart of tbo ro
mancer, and a proof of her discernment of the
proprieties and needs ot fiction, as it seems to
us. that she should have married Freida to her
worthy lover finally, and should have allowed
tho other to dio a bachelor, of wounds received
la battle, in a distant land. Poetic justlco Is de
sirable, and it Is reassuring to think that there
la a place for it in fiction, if not in the actual
world. The story is for the most part very sim
ply and reasonably told. We feel ourselves con-
strained to sax, that we do not think that
"""anybody has "cords" in his forehead,
and for this reason we do not believe
that any degree of passionate excitement
in anybody could cause the cords of
his forehead to swell. TAgaln, we doubt If
anybody, at the tlmo of this story, lived in
" Liberty street." in New York. Still again, wo
could wish that the simple Dutch character,
Annt Annetje, who had passed her life making
bnttcr and heeling stockings, had not been
made to speak, unverlslmilarly and extrava
gantly, of " these worthy people, the co-workers
of the arch-llend Kidd," and that the worthy
hero, the strongest man in New York, had
not been moved to mention. In the course
of an Imcassloaed oration at the tav
ern, "the fiend that is in our midst."
We have never thought out precl'ely what the
limitations were that constituted an objection
to tho careless use of tho word "tlcnd." Wo
should describe it nffband as a Miltonlc word,
exalted and even sacred in its character. To
have a fiend in one's midst is a deplorable con
dition not unknown in history, but not always,
' when a rlend has been alleged to bo in such an
intimate place, is it tho fact that he has really
been there.
Robert Louis Stevenson, who knew and loved
some of the South Sea islands and their peo
ples, said that the first love, the first sundae,
the first -'outh So island, were memories apart,
and touched a virginity of sense. Buttberols
one man, now living, who knows thoso won
drous lands, from tho Solomons to the Mar
quesas and from Easter Island to tho far-away
Pellew e, and w ho In tho course of twenty years'
wanderine, as supercargo, sallorman, and
trader, has learned to understand the Poly
nesian and tho Microneslan as few white men
hare ever done. Mr. Louis Bccke, whose
short stories, In the volume "By Reef and
Palm," at once stamped him as a man who could
not only write, but who knew what he was
writing about, stands at the head of all those
who have striven to convoy something of tho
rotnanco and the atmospheric charm that linger
In these most beautiful of all lands and of
the strango blending of primitive inno
cence and horrible brutality that often
marki tho association of tho doomed and
fast-vanishing native races with the nil
conquering whites. In his latest volume,
" Pacific Tales" (the New Amsterdam Book
Company) aro eighteen stories that show the
strongly marked contrasts and tho sunlight and
dark shidows of Island life, and that range
from the sensuous tropical charm of the open
ing pau'es of " In tbo Old Ueach-Combing Days"
and "In tho Evening," to tho pathos of "For
Wo Were Friends Always" and the crude
horror of " Hollls's Debt," tale of cold-blooded
murrfer and revenge, or of "The Arm of Luno
C .pal," a reminiscence of cannibalism in New
Ilrliain.

who like their fiction watery and sentimental,
but to many they will be welcomo by reason ot
their strength and their exotlo charm, and

There Is an engaging frankness shonn In the
opening sentence of tho preface to Mr. George
Salisbury's monograph on Sir Walter Scott,
which forms the latest volume ot tho "Famous
Scots Scries" (Scrlbners). "To tho probablo
remark that ' Anothor llttlo book about
Scott is not wanted,' I can at least
reply that apparently It Is, Inasmuch ns
tho publishers proposed this volumo to me,
not I to them." A scries of biographies of
famous Scots which did not Include tho author
ot Waverley would be a curious anomaly and
hence, from the publishers' point of vlow, thore
can bo no doubt as to the necessity for this
book. From that ot the reader tho necessity Is
not so obvious. Mr. Salisbury's pruto Is over
polished and plensant to read, and In spite ot
his tendency to fall at times Into a mild fnco
tlousness, his critical methods are alive. s
scholarly and his conclusions usually sound,
and hence, though he has little or nothing
that is new to tell us about Scott, his narrative
is not uninteresting. But In the Journal and In
Lockhart the reader has long had access to all
the salient facts In Scott's career, while Mr.
Salisbury's detailed criticisms ot the tiocms
and novels ore often evidently tho nicro pad
ding that fills out the frame of r. volume " mado
to order." In spite of tho fashionable tendency
among some of the young literary lions and new
humorists to decry Scott, and to jtbo at what
they aro pleased to call his lack of Btyle, and
notwithstanding the foolish attempts of some
per-fervld admirers of a later writer to glorify
their idol by exalting him above the earlier and
tho greater man, most readers will probably
agree with Mr. Salntabury when he says: "Tho
last as tho first word about Scott should perhaps
bo, ' Read him. And, as far as may bo, road all
of him.' "
Tho Macmlllan Company publishes a new and
revised edition of Mr. Ernest VUctclly's au
thorized translation of M. Zola's "Lourdes,"
the first of the "Trilogy of the Three Cities." of
which tho second Is "Rome," and tho third,
which should soon bo ready for publication.
' Paris." " Lourdes," says M. Zola In his preface,
" tho grotto, the miracles, are. Indeed, the crea
tion ot that need of tho Lie. that necessity for
credulity, which la a characteristic of human
nature. Lourdes grew up in spite ot all
opposition, just as the Christian religion did.
because suffering humanity. In Its despair,
must cling to something, must havo some hope:
and, on tho other hand, because humanity
thirsts after illusions. In a word. It is
the story of tho foundation of all re
ligions." This Is tho greatest of all M.
Zola's books, and many passages are of
exquisite beauty, while the objectionable,
features that have marred so many of his novels
are here far less conspicuous. The central story
of tho young priest and the invalid girl, who
from childhood have loved each other and have
never spoken of their love, is very tenderly told,
and the picture of the dally life of tno pil
grim band is wonderfully vivid. But the
stifling atmosphere ot the hospital and
the lazar house and tho long and detailed
descriptions of almost every known form
of loathsome bodily ailment leave tho feeling
that in spite of its vigor and logical power tho
book is the product of a mind that lingers all
too lovingly neon the morbid and the unwhole
some. Over the whole there falls the shadow of
a dull, inexorable fatalism, a hopeless creed that
finds expression In the last few sentences:
"Ah! unhappy mankind, poor, ailing human
ity, hungering for illusion, and in the weariness
of this waning century distracted and soro from
having too greedily acquired science; it fancies
itself abandoned by the physicians ot both the
mind and the body, and, in great danger of suc
cumbing to Incurable d scase, retraces Its steps
and ssks the miracle of its cure of the mystical
Lourdes of a past forever dead!"
There is plenty of rattle and bang and "go"
about the short stories told by Mr. Cy. Warman
in "The Express Messenger and Other Tales of
the Rail " (Scrlbners). Fights with Indians In
the old pioneer days of the Union Pacific, ad
ventures with runaway engines and cruzy
engineers, the romances ot tho railroad thirty
years ago, are described with a breeziccss and a
bluff, hearty humor, and with a touch
of rude poetry that no writer hitherto, with the
exception of Mr. Kipling, has associated with
the locomotive. From the opening pages, with
their vivid, clean-cut description of a cloud
burst in tho mountains, to tho end, these
stories hold the attention, and here and
there a quaint figure In tho vernacular
of the brakeman or the "prairie sailor"
tickles the car with its appropriateness.
As when th " devil" engine, with a bad record
and fresh from the repairing shops, is described
as a " wild, wayward, and disreputable sister,
all gaudy In her new paint, with clanging boll
and blowing steam, with polished headlight and
new flags fluttering at bcr shoulders," gliding
backward " like a gay girl on roller skatc,"
Mr. Warmnn In all these stories wrltei
ot matters that ho understands, and his
pages are fu 1 of little touches that show the
band of the man who knows his subject, "Not
one railroad employee In a dozen," says he, " will
admit that he Is tho least llttlo bit superstitious,
but watch them when they see a new moon, and
if nine out of ten don't go down In their
clothes and 'turn over silver,' it's bo
cause they are 'broke;' and In the left
breast pocket of three out of every five
switchmen you meet, sandwiched In between
aleadtscnciland a tooth brush, you will find
the fuzzy foot of a grave) ard rabbit, killed In tbo
dark of the moon," Here are a few lines from
one of the best of the stories, " The Locomotive
That Lost Herself," that vividly plcturo tho
mad rush of the runaway englno driven by her
crazy engineer:
Out over the switches, already set for the fait
freight, and down the main line dashed the wild driver,
while a flood of tire cme from the slack and rained

Farmers along the Una saw a great shower of
sparks falling In their flalds, aud In her wake th
wild engine left a sea of burning Hubble, where red
flame leaped from shock to rick.
Parts V. and VI. ot the "Encyclopedia of
Sport," edited by the Earl of Suffolk and Berk,
shire, Mr. Medley Peek and Mr. F. G. Allnlo
(Putnams), aro in their excellence of Illustration,
print, and general mako-up fully up to the hlali
standard of the earlier numbers already no
ticed In theso columns, Mr. F, C. Sclous writes
of elephant hunting, n largo amount of
space Is devoted to sporting (logs, thulr
breaking, training, &c, and a well-known
Russian sportsman has an interesting paper on
deer-stalking in the Caucasus. It Is not easy to
understand why the article on dcioys was In
serted in an encyclopedia of sport. This Is an
elaborate description of tho method ot taking
wild fowl by means of nettel "pipes" laid to
theedges of souih quiet feeding pool. Tho birds
swim in nt the wldc-moutbed opening of one of
tbo " pipes " until, " having passed the II rat reed
screen, they are virtually cut off from Iho rest
of the flock. At this Juncture the decoy man
show himself to the duck In the pipe, though
not to those on the pool. He makes no noise,
but meroly waves his arms; and the frightened
fowl, afraid to return past htm to the open
water. Instantly rlso on the wing and fly up the
pipe, following Us curve in the vain hope that it
will lead to froodotn. Instead of that, how
ever, it loads to the bag-net, from which,
one by one, they are taken out to have their
nocks adroitly twisted. In hard winters,
when thcro may bo sovcral hundred ducks upon
tho pool In n day, great execution takes place If
the decoy man knows his work and has a good
dog. At a celebrated decoy at Ashby, In Lin
colnshire, as mnny as 113 ducks havo been
taken at one tlmo, and 218 In one day." This
sort of thing may bo excusablo in the case
ot tho pot-hunter who makes his living by sup
plying th - market, but surely by no stretch of
the imagination can it bo looked upon as sport.
So dostructtvo was the plan found to bo that, as
for back as Henry VIII. ' time. It was prohib
ited by act of Parliament, and yot at tho prcsont
day there arc, as wo loarn from this article,
some forty decoy pipes in Essex, Lincolnshire,
Norfolk, aud somo of tho other English counties,
n number ot pages are devoted to cycling. Mr.
George Lacy Hllllor writes of track and road
racing, and tbero Is a short paper on cycling for
women, but that portion which treats ot
machines, bearings, pneumatlo tubing, &c., and

taken cither from unused duplicates or from re

a notable example ot tho art ot sound, service
able bookmaklng. It Is a pleasure to take
up a modern volumo that mny bo opened
out flat without the risk of Its back
being broken. Mr. Andrew Lang writes an
Introduction and supplies some notes to each
book, and In " David Copperflcld," tho volume
before us, he has wisely kept both notes and
Introduction within narrow limits. In a note
on Doctors' Commons, an Interesting opinion,
given by a lawyer on tho Law of Dickens, is ex
tracted from somo re ma ks by Lord Ilowen,
quoted In Mr. T. II. Ward's "Reign of Queen
Victoria":

The "International Studio" for September
I (John Lane) has n number of examples of the
work of Seganti, an Italian artist whoso studies
of the herdsmen aud peasants of the Tyrol and
the Italian Alps show a sympathy and power ot
insight that recall the dignity aud sombro
pathos of many of Jean Francois Millet's
pictures of peasant life. There aro also: An
interesting nrttcle on tbo Munich Exhibition,
with a number of Illustrations of tbo work of
the modern German school; somo sketches and
a paper on Tangier, by Mr. Norman Garstln;
several of Foraln's cartoons; an Illustrated de
scription ot some formal gardens lu Scotland,
and, in the scries of papers on the Industrial arts
ot America, a description of the glass and
dec rative work doao by a well-known New
York firm. Altogether an unusually attractive
number.
A modest Introductory noto prefaces a valu
ablo and interesting little volume In the "Great
Educators "series "Thomas and Matthew Ar
nold and their influence on English education"

Fitch, formerly Inspector of Training Colleges,
states that, without professing to furnish a new
biography or a new theory respecting either
writer, ho has essayed tho task " of bringing to- j
getber so much of the teaching of both j

and also has sought to explain and justify
the honorable position tbo Arnolds occupy In ,

1919-1S89, edited by Mr. George W. E. Russell,
and bas given special prominence to those fea

Ulustratcd by A. I. KELLER. M
6mo, Cloth. Ornamental, $1 50. fSM
It is a book which will be appreciated wherever the pathos and dig- I jl
nity of human nature make their appeal to sympathetic readers. ... It S
is impossible to read this novel without sympathy, without that warming $m
ot the emotions which means that the author has a grip upon the very ' i;B
roots of human nature. . . . Altogether "Jerome" is a mature and '
original book, which will leave the name of its author higher than ever $m
among American novelists. .v. v. Tribune. H
Has written nothing better than her latest story, "Jerome, a Poor fl
Man," which shows all those qualities of humor, tenderness, and sym- .'
pathy, and that keen insight and unerring and artistic touch that give to fM
her pictures of New Entland life a peculiarly personal charm. N. Y. Sun. rM
