"As nn Kngllsh lad of ,. I wrote a hymn which has fortu-' -ately not survived. When I wns 11 ..ml nt n preparatory school netting mdv for examination for the Iloy.il ,ny i which 1 never entered owing to i mess) I lampooned an older boy In rsc. Lacking proper appreciation of riv .luvenalesque satire, he knocked n 'nth nut. I hied early for the profes s on of letters'. " dozen years later 1 was staying n tlcrtnany and had many Instances of the hsurdlty of militarism broucht to my notice. I wrote an article In a London rclew nhout It and received K ventrcn challenges to duels on that m count. All seventeen declared I had i.Ishonnred the Kaiser's uniform. "As a nutter of fact I admire the Kaiser and respect his uniform, but the damage was done. 1 disapproved of cludllng nnd thought the whole matter id'snrd until one night nt a restaurant nn odlcer sent n waiter with his visit ing card. On It was Inscribed, 'Sir, 1 do not like your fncc.' 1 sent him hack mine. 'Sir. I deplore your taste.' "1 thought little more about It until the gentleman arose nnd flung some cof fee, and bad coffoc nt that, Into my face. 1 was excecdlnRly nnnoyed. I bear to this day the sword thrust of the gen tleman who did not like my face, and In my unrcKcnerate moods I am not sorry that he too carries his scar. It was th second time I had Riven my blooJ for my profession. "It was a few years later when one tine mornlnR 1 found that a defaulting lawyer nnd a blink that failed had brought my finances to n parlous state. 1 tossed up to sec whether I should ko to Australia or New York. America was heads, and won. "From New York 1 went westward. Here I fell In with a professional part tier who said he had made his pile In horses and wanted to retire. He gavo tne chloral hydrate In abominable whiskey nnd retired as he desired to do. When I could not ride on the top of tars I walked 4nck to New York. It tenk a lonr while and I engaged In r.cw professions en route. "I punched cows at $35 a month for ine thins nrtd talked yeRR philosophy lth fellow voyagers. There was one man, now dead he was shot robblnK a post office who wanted me to aid hhn In confidence Rames In Chicago. I was to enact a star role, and he was most grieved when I declined. I'eople have often asked me why I never writ h-tortes about cowpttnehers and range riders. It Is because only two classes write this story those who know a lot nnd those who know nothing and I had only a few months of It. "When finally T was back In New York I thought of letters of Introduc tion given me by a delightful American Consul In Kurope to some New York editors. They did not. however, procure me a high salaried position, but they turned my mind to literary pursuits ncaln and I began to write. I think doggerel verses brought me my first money. Then the editor and publisher of a popular monthly magazine, who lias been a very gqod friend to me, bought stories. I also sold big game nortes while they lasted and finally after much tribulation found my feet. "At various times I have been dra matic critic, musical critic, automobile department editor, hackney and saddle horse editor. I have written advertise ments and booklets nnd been advertis ing manager to a chemical company In Haltlinore. Once I was editor of the house organs published In Orange by th I-Mlson people. I wrote the nice little descriptions of the new records. Mv circulation was In the millions. 1 "fien saw the wonderful Thomas Alva Kdlson nnd designed at one time to write a hook on his life. "t once edited a since defunct society weekly which had departments for sn ooty, drama, polo, yachting, dogs, hrirj.es, finances. I wrote everything ' r It except r.avlnla's letter from Paris, wMih was written by another who lived m Harlem. The dramatic and musical "Apartments supplied me with tickets fir plays and concerts, so the time spent n. not wasted. I have been from time to time con nected with newspapers, but It Is toward fiction that I have always turned, and, i'ke al! nrtvellsts, 1 feel that the drama needs me. 1 was one of those mm working In New York who lived In 'rsev With two friends, one an archl- and the other a college professor, ' allied n newspaper across the river "nd meadows, We ulmed at having a an weekly nnd we succeeded.

I "Artlflelal, Stilted nnd Decorative," He !, but Better Than Nn Art. In Interesting contrast to the enthu siasm which has of lato years been ex tended to Jiipnneso painting, Iloyn.1 Hill Mllloson, the well known American painter, in hi recently published 'The Artist's Point of View" displays a di vergent view, "Comparo the fidgety unsatisfying Jnpaneso school of art," ho says, "with that which goon to naturo for Its axioms. The former is artificial, stlltecland decora tive, much of it rescmblinc child's play, yot it has this in common with some other schools, notably tho Kgyptian, that it is better than no art. An intel ligent Nipponese who has for a time studied in tho academics of Europe and America amuses us with his struggles in the conflict Iwtween the new ana the old. Just in proportion as he gets away from the abnormal and fantastic into tho realm of naturo study do his pictures become interesting. Sometimes tho two are combined in a single canvas nnd again ho shows them separately: but no matter, tho line of demarcation is perfectly defined; they mix no better than oil and water." JACK LONDON'S WORK IS RILL OF HIS EXPERIENCE Always Has Tasted the Life and heath Adventures He Writes About. Most of the work of Jack Iondon has tho ring of personal experience, and in his new book, "Smoko Uellew," just issued by tho Century Company, he goes back to tho Klondike days which he has cele brated in several stories. Jack Iondou as a boy left college abruptly and went in youthful quest of adventure- to the Alaskan wilds. From that experience cams "The Call of the Wild" otjd "The Children of the frost." Then the apeal of the sea came, and after a few thrilling year before the mast his books bore such titles as "Tho' Sea Wolf" and "The Cruise of the Dazzler," However, mere physical adventure did not engross his entire attention. Kven as a boy hU keen mind saw and medi tated over (lie Inequalities of life around him, and it is little wonder that his more commonplace schoolboy companions re garded him as an anarchist when he forcibly harangued City Hall loufers on socialism and "the coming .terror." Then he tramped through the United Htutes and Canada, getting m aterial for economic! studies, uud thin early bent resulted later ill such thoughtful writings as "The War of the Classes" and "itevolu tion." It took several years to accustom a rather conventional leading public to some of Jack Ixmdon's more eccentric productions, so for tho first part of his career as an author he met even more than the usual reverses of u new writer. But he pluckily stuck to his own vein unit came to be recognized us a power in the literary worm. His vicissitudes'in no way subdued hU natural tastes, however, and it WAR II n surprise to his large circle of friends and readers when they heard that the now prosperous writer Had shipped with his wife for u cruise on a sauar,- rico-il t.ii, sailing around the Horn. Ixuidon was third mate, his wife stewardess and their Jupunese servant menu uoy. n nai would nave been a hair raising experience to ordinarv iiirtil seemed to tills congenial pair only natural undertaking, and the UhhIodk have since announced that tho tilp proved Ull Unqualified success. Al nome. wnen tie condeHoends to stay nt. nuiim. lyuimini tn mo ll Ullll OWIIIir III one of the most beautiful spot in Cull- lunim a mitgiiiiiceni. rancn called tiien Mien, overlooking tlie entire Sonoma Valley, Here he turns his lmiimii..ui energy to horseback riding, farm super intending, talking with endloss visitors and writing daily in the sacred and in violable morning hours of 7 to 12. He says that he would rather dig ditches than write; but he continues to write. THOUGHT WHISTLER TOO BOLD. finest at Illnnrr of Notables Tried ( Squelch lllm. In his new book, "A Book of Famous Wits." Walter Jerrold tells a storv of Whistler, for which Sir Rennold Rodd is the authority: I remember a breakfast which Waldo Story gave at Dleudonne's. Every one mere was Dy me wayor Having painted a picture or written a book, or in sontu way or anotner naving outraged the flit Us tine with the exception or one young gontleman whoso raison d'etro there wan not so aimarent as won ih height of his collar and the glory of IiIh attire. "He nevertheless ventured to lay down the law on certain matters which seemed beyond his province, ond eveu went so far as to combat some dictum nf (he master's, who, readjusting his eyeglass, iuuhcu I'leaBuiiuir at jinn anu satfl; 'And d whose son are you?" SEVEN ATTRACTIVE TITLES. Books of Travel, the Home nnd Oar den From McBrlde, Nasi A Co, Seven new publications are just an nounced by McBride, Nnst nnd Company; "Picture Towns of Europe," un inter pretative and descriptive book of me diaival, picturesquo and romantio cities, by Albert Osborne; "Sensttions of Paris," by liowland Strong, who has caught tho at homo atmosphero of Purls: "AIoiir Spain's River of Romance," a travel book descriptive nf tho (lliadulquivir River, by Paul Owynno; "Furnishing tho Homo of Good lasto," an exposition of the pritu'iivtl period stylos of furniture, by Liioy Abbot Throop; "Gardening Indoors and Undor flliiss.r a handbook for tho owner of a sin ill hollioui.o or conservatory, by F, F. Rockwell, nnd two now IkioUh in Iho "Houwj and Garden Making Series," "Making a Bulb O.inlon" and "Making a Garden Willi Hotlied and Coldframo," Writing to Francis ferry Klllott Is plodding work. Tho "germ" of the story Is slowly rounded Into form and nfter weeks, even months, of thinking It shapes Itself Into a novel. Then see ing the book In Its entirety Mr. Elliott makes a rough draft nf it, outlining the chapters. This outline, the novelist says, comprises perhaps two pages of ordinary size letter paper. It Is by this nctlon that Mr. Elliott settles somewhat definitely the form of his story. "Having once constructed this frame work," Mr. Elliott says, "I lay It aside and never look nt It again." This framework complete Mr. Elliott then begins the finishing process. Chap ter, by chnpter Is written and rewritten and revised many times ucrore It Is sub mitted to the publisher. Having once the plot the finishing work for nne novel nlone consumes a year with Mr. Elliott. He Is content to give It that much time. In the case of his latest story. "The Gift of Aboti Hassan," he spent n year In working upon this book. Of course he did not work every hour of the yenr In Its con. structlon, but he confesses that working from ten to twelve hours a day he spent at least five months In Its production. It wns .under most delightful circum stances that Mr. Elliott wrote "The (lift of Abou Hassan" that much he admits. A part perhaps a third was written In his study In Keokuk, la., tho remnlnder on the shore of Narragansett Hay. After the tragic, loss of his wife three years ago Mr. Elliott found memoranda she had made of plots and outlines of stories and novels, he had discussed with her and which she had taken clown. Among these were a memorandum of "The Gift of Abou Hnssan." It was under a sort of enforced pat ronage that the greater part of "Thu Gift of Abou Hassan" was written While In New York en route on his summer outing a year ago Mr. Elliott chanced upon a wealthy friend. Learn ing of Mr. Elliott's destination and In tention this friend promptly took tht author In tow, confiscated his baggage and hied to the latter's summer home on Narragansett Bay. And there part nf "The Gift of Abou Hassan" was writ ten. . Mr. Elliott's workshop was upon a stiacluiis veranda. A coo) breeze, with fits salt tang, fanned him as he worked, Servants awaited his leisure. A car wns at his disposal, but he never used It an4 all was quiet. Of course the week enders were there from Friday to Mon day to annoy him, but this Is surmise, for the author describes hl.i workshop as ideal. The hot days passed pleasantly and each saw his second long novel nearer Its completion. Plodding along day In unci djy out, writing, rewriting and re vising, the work was at length com pleted. It then went to the publisher as "The Magic Hug" but came out between book covers as "The Gift of Abou Has san." If you should visit a certain cramped Utile shop In Washington street, New York, there can be found "Abou Hassan," only that Is not his name. He runs an antique shop and Is well known by Mr. Elliott, who with his wife was a fre quent visitor to the place not so many years back. Abou Is an everyday char acter found In the foreign quarter of almost any big city. He may be slightly caricatured, for like all of Mr. Klllott'i characters he comes from real life a Utile distorted, but still human and hav ing a personal touch. Tom Itentley, the hero of the book, Is another real man. He too Is found In New York, but he would be somewhat more dlrtleult to meet than Abou. licit li Dorothy, the heroine, nnd Mrs. I'omer nel, the fussy' society woman, live in New York. Mr. Elliott knows them and when the anther thinks of the latter he speaks through teeth somewhat gritted. Mr. Elliott likes his work, but prefers to discuss literary endeavor In general rather than from what might seem an egotistical point of view. He likes criti cism In ordr that he may sec himself ns others see him, no matter whether favorable or unfavorable. "All Is profit able so long as It Is honest," he says. He asserts that his literary skill Is In herited from his father, who, however, died when Mr. Elliott was quite a lad, living In the South. Mr. Elliott's first literary connection was with Harper & Brothers, where he went from the head mastership of a young ladles' school at Tarrytown-on-the-Hudson. It was at this school he found among the pupils Wlnlfrld McKenzle fayne, a young girl of mental and spiritual gifts, who be came his wife. His first novel, "The Haunted Pajamas," was written for mental rest nnd relaxation during the Interim of other literary labor after his wife's death and as a tribute to her Judgment. It was this unlqu story that gave Mr. Elliott an Immediate place as an original and entertaining .story teller. AN AUTHOR WHO WAS A KINO. J'1' t;'.' Jfz Knt A frlean Tribe g.mA Wasn't Katra by Hyenas, John Royes, author of "A White King In Fast Africa," has probably had at hair raising adventures aa any one in the world who has lived to tell the tale. The fcaviiRii Kikuyu tribe, of which he became virtually king, made things interesting for liim ono dark night: "Them had been an ominous stillness around tho camp for some time, wljen suddenly tho air wag rent by a wild up roar ami wo heard tho war cry of the tribe hPrcuding from village to village mingled with the shrieking of women mid children. Overall tho din the hideous howls of tho hyenas could bediBtlngulshed, These animals mem to realize when there is a feast of human flush in store for them, and at the sound of tho native war cry, which warns thorn of a fight being at hand, they are nlwuya on tho alert. The natives never bury their dead, but leave them for tho hyenas to cat." Hut Mr. Roves was bv a fortuitous cir cumstance enabled to waylay one of the wild warriors' chiefs and by holding him a hostage to avert an attack. THE MAKING OF BOOKS.
