which were distributed ns souvenirs of
the dinner.
"With Joe Strenkert. Just as with V
Hopklnson Smith, who presided at the
speakers', table, It was a mutter of love
and honor for Drake, for Joe Strenkert
haa been right hand man down at
the De Vlnne Press for over a quarter
of a century and he ha helped to put
through a great deal of the work that
haa won such high praise for Drake In
the publishing world.
The dinner was attended by over 400
of tho best known men in the art and
writing and printing worlds of America,
for 1n each Drake has been a big factor
for morn than a generation, yet It was
primarily a personal dinner. The Idea
of It took form In the minds of several
of Drake's friends about the same time

and naked to plve an account of him
self, "and I felt the Influence of the
open nlr, I wrote about the kind of
stun 1 write now, I think. I liked to
read poetry, and at IS had read about
all tho KnKlUh poets. Which did 1 like
best? Why Tennyson and Swinburne
and Shelley and Keats and Words
worth. Hut I don't think I ever played the
sedulous ape, as Stevenson would say.
I whs Influenced, of course. None of
us can help being Influenced by what
up read, but I never deliberately
Imitated."
Sir. Noyes was 14 when he wrote his
tlrst epic.
"It was In rhymed verse." he said,
"and composed of thousands of lines. 11
was an allegory, describing the voyage
through life as on a ship, from Infancy
to old age. I sent it to James I'alne the
novelist, lie sent It back with an en
couraging letter, but advising me to read
more and not to try to publish anything
for years."
Mr. Noyes did wait a few years five,
for he was all of 19 when his first poem
was printed. This was "The Symbolist,
which appeared In the weekly supple
ment of the London Timrs. M that
time he was In Kxctcr College, Oxford,
and achieving such a reputation for his
prowess as an athlete, especially in row
ing on the class crew, that his literary
tendencies were regarded by his class
mates as a Joke.
Nevertheless as soon as he left college
he went to London Hnd began to devote
all his time and energy to writing poetry,
though when he wrote his great epic,
"Drake," he dedicated It to his rowing
coach Instead of to any of his celebrated
literary friends.
It would seem that a great deal of
courage would be required these days to
set out deliberately to make a living out
of poetry writing atone. Hut Mr. Noyes
has an opinion on that score too.
"I can't seo why poetry should be
regarded differently from the other
arts, he Mild. "It didn't occur to me
that there should be any difficulty.
People don't exclaim that a painter Is
a wonderful man because he devotes
ners. Gibson showed their spirit by say
lug: 'Vmi cannot give too many dinners
to h man like Drake.'
"When the dinner was announced
Theodore L. De Vlnne. the dean and
Under of the master printers of the
country, who has been associated with
Drake for forty years, wrote at once
that he had given his doctor special
orders that he must be got Into shape to
attend the dinner. And he did attend,
and gave expression lo affection for and
appreciation of Drake.
"George W. Cable wrote from Ber
muda, where ho happened lo be, M re
gret that, being out of the country. I
cannot be at the Joyous gathering, but
1 gladly tell you that never elsewhere
have I seen so great modesty and devo
tion of character so unfailingly com
bined with such masterful gifts of
achievement as In Druki..'
"Joseph Pennell wrote from London:
'During all my life Drake has been my
guide, philosopher and friend; and he
has done more for tho advancement of
Illustration than any man living, far
more than R Hopklnson Smith suggests
or probably knows."
Not only from far but near came
evidences of the deep personal quality
Drake had put Into all of his relation
ships. The day of the dinner ltobert
I'nderwood Johnson, editor of the Cen
tury Magntiiir. called up to ask If
Drake's colleagues on the magazine
could present a Chinese vase filled
with flowers a-i a i-peclal tribute to
him. This vaie occupied a place of
honor Immediately before Drake at tho
speakers' tahlp, and lxlilnd him were
stretched Chinese tapestries worth a
king's ransom, and Indeed they were
used, It was said, as decorations at
roal functions In Pekln.
At the dinner all those present con
tributed to the making of a book of re
membrance. Hach guest signed his
name on Japanese vellum paper and
the sheets were then bound Into a
sumptuous volume, to which R Hop
klnson Smith has contributed the fol
lowing appreciation;
"To him more than any one man Is
due the perfection which exists to-day
In the results obtained from the half
tone plate. The older men, myself
among them, who saw him stand over
the De Vlnne presses hour after hour
teaching the printers the art of en
riching the darks without smudging or
sacrificing the lights of the artist's
original drawings need no reminder of
what he has done for them and their
work, but the younger and more re
cent additions to our ranks, those who
may think the present day perfection
came as a matter of course, can af
ford to stop and think back, lifting
their hats, as we do, to one whose un
tiring patience, Inborn love of beauty
and consummate skill made It possible."
ltobert Bridges of Kcrlbner'a com
posed for the occasion the following
"Hallad of Drake, the Collector," to the
air of "Fifty Cents":
When Drake got tired of higher rt,
Of color and pen anil wash,
He used to go with his aoul apart

Then Drake went down to Chatham atreet,
A most artistic apot,
In search of miscellaneous lost

Copper and rings and ruga,

himself to his art without taking up n
side business. It wems that people
have got In the habit of looking on' a
poet as a sort of fool. They can't ex
pect one to wrlto good poetry In off
moments between other Jobs."
Mr, Noyes refused even to consider
any other Jobs and as a result he has
In ten years published ten volumes of
verso ranging through nearly every
conceivable etylo and subject and
mood, but always winning high praise
for uniform excellence. He Is now be
ginning to win rewards more material
than favorable criticism, though It
niui-t be admitted that In some of the
years his pecuniary protlts were not so
great as reported. Since his works
were collected Into a two volume edi
tion a little over a year ngo between
7,000 and 8,000 copies have lieen sold,
truly a "best seller" among books of
vcrt-e.
"The purpose oNpoctry to-day Is the
same as It always has been," said Mr.
Noyes. "Hut Its sphere is far wider.
Its opportunity for development was
stated by Matthew Arnold In 1SS0 when
he said that the future of poetry was
Immense because In poetry, as time
goes on. the race will come to find mi
ever surer anil surer stay. There are
reasons why the race finds a sure stay
In poetry.
"I think the mission of the poetry
of the present day is to make up for
what w have lo.t In other lines. We
have lost our creeds these last twenty
years, the deeds that kept the world
moving In the previous century. Poetry
and literature hae got to take their
place, to lextoie the sense of tho divine
In life. They have got to gle to every
sphere of modern life the truth with
what Wordsworth call 'the light that
never was on sea or land." That touch
of consecration Is every poet's dream.
"And that is what the modern poets
are doing. It may sound ludicrous to
say that If a pout writes about a sky
MTaer his mission is to consecrate the
sk scraper. Hut that is what It Is
nevertheless."

literary subjects is another bearing. the
interesting title "The Great Clrccn Ta
ble: A Discussion of Militarism." What
the poet has to say on militarism should
be Interesting. Ho confirms In it new
way the old principle that poetry should
bo non-controvcrslal.
"Poetry cannot possibly be limited
to party Interests," ho said. "It Is
universal. I am aiming at tho com
bination of law and liberty In my poetry.
The prose writer has to set himself a
narrower aim. He Is lighting for liberty
or for law. And ho sees things In the
light of his passion. Hut the poet must
always survey things In harmony and
link them together In his affirmation-,
which have a universal Import and sig
nificance. "Tho poet looks at things, as It were,
from tho centre. He feels the whole
universe of being coordinated and
linked In 'harmony. Science and phi
losophy work In the opposite direction
from the clrcumfcrcnco lo the centre.
Tho multiplicity of details obscures the
vision which the poet, looking from
within outward, sees more clearly. All
great poetry proceeds from that cen
tral source of harmony from which tho
great metrical cosmos Itself proceeds.
The rhythms and cadences and har
monies of poetry correspond to the
co.-mlc movement, the pulsing hearts,
swinging tides and wheeling stars.
"I conceive that the luuctlon of
poetry Is to bring us Into communion
with that harmony which Is the basis
of the universe. The business of the
poet Is to set the fact, the every day
prosaic fact, the commonplace thing,
In relation to the eternal."
