Books and Authors
j~— __EW YORK, March 7.—1 have recently had the good fortune to look over a
|7W|| C°P-V of au American sea story edited by Alfred Harmsworth for an
l^llj Eußlisa edition. The comments and side notes which Mr. Harnisworth
Ij made on the copy are of more than ordinary interest, not merely because
mBLJ he is a multimillionaire editor, but rather because they display the ability
and keen insight to see and do the right thing which have brought millions to him.
The booh is "Mr. Trunnell," with a subtitle of 'Mate of the Ship Pirate." It was
written by T. Jenkins Hams and was published in this country a year or more
ago. It was duly copyrighted in England but no English publisher to whom It was
offered would undertake to bring it out over there, because, as most of them said,
it was a little too strong and too American for the English taste. Captain Hams
did not press the matter or offer to make any changes for an English edition, but
this winter, while a guest aboard the captain's yacht in Florida waters, Mr. Harms
worth offered to go over the book and edit it for the English reading public. Captain
Hams accepted the offer, and the story will probably appear in London during the
coming fall season.
As I have said, the annotations by Mr. Harmsworth are of more than usual In
terest. After questioning a few American terms, the editor strikes a speech of
Trunnell, the burly old mate and hero of the tale. "Not a bleeding one," says Trun
nell in reply to a question as to whether any passengers are aboard his ship. Mr.
Harmsworth had underscored the word bleeding and written on the side, "This is
a very dreadful word never printed on our side." As the same word occurs five
times in the next two pages, some American critics might Judge that the author
had overworked that expressive adjective. Farther along in the story one of the
ship's officers cries out, "Then, blast you, if I don't make a sailor of you before you
get clear of the ship." and on the word blast the English editor has written the
note, "Almost as bad as the sanguinary epithet, so often heard but never seen on
our Bide." Again, opposite a reference to Coney island, he has written, "A local
allusion understood only by those who have seen the Elephant." From this same
editor, who is probably the most successful in the world, we learn that English
writers use the word cabin instead of stateroom and that "cough up" is a term not
understood in England. Occasionally the editor has exhibited a sense of humor.
He asks whether a cuspidor is an animal or a musical instrument and pertinently
inquires whether the girl in the story, who will not laugh at one of the captain's
Jokes, is an English girl. Mr. Harmsworth's impressions of the story seem to be
good, for he has written bits of commendations here and there. He evidently be
lieves that Captain Hams can write of the sea, for it is the ocean life and descrip
tions that have drawn the most praise from him.
Indeed, as a writer of sea stories and sea fiction in general, Captain Hams is
entitled to considerable respect. I do not know that he ran away to sea as a boy
and endured the many hardships that seem to have been common to writers of this
class, and I do not believe he had the varied experiences at sea which fell to the
lot of Frank Bullen, who was cast adrift at eight years of age. His point of view
also is different from that of the other sea story writers, because he does not be
lieve that the common sailor is emit led to so much respect and sympathy as is
generally given him. All this, however, is somewhat off the subject. Captain Hams
seems to have found favor with one of the greatest editors of the present time, and
if he proves to be the right kind of a godfather, this author's future success will
be assured. At any rate, "Mr. Trunnell" will doubtless appear before very long in
London and unless Mr. Harmsworth is a false prophet, the book will be a decided
At odd times Captain Hams is employed in work on two or three new books —
one a volume of short stories, something similar in character to "The Windjammers."
and another a novel which he promises will surpass "Mr. Trunnell." During the
coming spring his new story. "The* Cruise of the Petrel" will be published serially
and the book will be issued before the end of the present season. It is a story of
sea life on a sailing vessel during the war of 1812—the times when privateering was
common and sailing craft had to look sharp to avoid capture by the enemy. The
hero of the tale is a boy who starts out to work his way up as a master of ship,
win a fortune, and come back to claim the sweetheart of his schooldays. Part of the
Btory is historical and is based upon the log book of Captain Hams' grandfather,
Admiral Jenkins. Admiral Jenkins is known as the author of several works on
subjects connected with the navy and his book of instructions is still looked upon
as an authority.
I do not know why the sea has such a decided interest to readers, but certainly
■within the past few years the growth of this kind of literature has been remarka
ble. I hope it will continue to grow. It is a sturdy, manly kind of expression of
vigorous life. We are becoming more and more interested in these "swift shuttles
of an empire's loom." which are weaving all the ends of the earth together. The
sea is an ever mysterious subject. We shall never know it thoroughly, but we are
glad to have these men who have lived upcn it and loved it as their "own lives tell
Ua what they know about it. —Herbert Brewster.
Adjudged Insane-la "Five Months
in a Mad House" we have what purports to
be an actual experience of a man who was
kept in an insane asylum for five months, en
during all the tortures which are set forth
in one of Charles Reade's fascinating novels.
It is a terrible ex(M>ri«uco, indeed, and one
which has, no doubt, been felt quite fre
quently. The author, whose name is not
given, very earnestly pleads for laws com
pelling publicity in insane asylums, especially
those of a private kind. New York: The
Press Exchange Company.
Social Reconstruction —i n John Cole
man Kenworthy's "The Anatomy of Mis
ery" he gives his ideas of "sound doctrines
of social reconstruction," based on unselfish
conduct or true ethics. He postulates
"wealth" as all products which are good to
be used and enjoyed by man. No others
can be included in "wealth," whose prop
erties are usefulness and beauty. And labor
should employ all tools to facilitate produc
tion and benefit body and mind and not con
flict with beauty and fulness of life. Our
present system of production, the author
thinks, fails in every direction as we have
inferiority, insufficiency, harmfulness, etc.
Every member of a community should work
according to his capacity and distribution
be made according to individual needs. Pres
ent disastrous social conditions result from
"organized violence" of the will of a class.
Property should be distributed to all ac
cording to their ability to use it, their ca
pacity and need. This will come by the ad
justment of men to each other and to na
ture. Slavery remains yet to be abolished,
for the laborer is "still a slave," selling
himself to an employer. Land should be used
equally to promote the welfare of every
member of the community. Considerable
space is devoted to the unequal distribution
of money and the author pronounces condi
tions "terrible," because private property
rights exist. He would upset the whole ex
isting system, not by physical revolution,
but by individual example, which would seem
to be asking much of the reader who may
not have a dollar of surplus money to "dis
tribute." If private property is to be
"abolished" there will have to be some
stranger force than this. Prodhon tried to
get men to believe that property is a
"thief," but he could not persuade them.

The Flavor of Poetry-One looks
long in these days for the fruity flavor of
true poetry in the masses of verses called
poetry. A very small amount of gold is
panned out. In William Griffith's "The
House of Dreams" there were found some
evidences of a true singer and in his "Ex
cursions" there are grace and suggestion
enough to intimate larger possibilities. Here

Looking Back— i n r>The Nineteenth
Century. An Utopian Retrospect," Haveloek
Ellis represents two philosophers of a future
age discussing the spirit, temper and facts
accomplished of the nineteenth century. One
of th»m looks upon that pericd as stupid and
uninteresting and the other argues that it is
not to be despised and contained interesting
developments, if Uie people were not very
highly civilized from the later standpoint.
They were credited with a certain savaeery of
mind and disposition which made the whole
earth a vast scene of bloodshed. Christianity
Is characterized as "an admirable instrument
in crushing and pacifying weaker peoples."
"When they had crushed some small nation
they always presented it with a large stock
of Bibles, which were printed and pub
lished by a national fund established for the
purpose, and as all sense of humor had beeu
killed out of the conquered race, the Bibles
■were generally accepted thankfully, whether
In order to save their souls or to obtain a
tree supply of wasie paper, was not always
clear to those who supplied the Bibles."
There ar? other flings at Christianity and the
determining nations are charged with keep-
Ing on hand the religion of anarchism for
use among the masses t,f their own industrial
centers—a creation of the politicians. After
the settlement of the whole world was ac
complished nations were suppressed as na
tions, as they were regarded as constituted for
essentially inhuman purposes, which "pre
vented the rise of a truly human civilization
on a national basis." Newspapers in the
nineteenth century wsre adjudged the tools
at capitalists, the n«ws being ug«Jd as a
mere bait, but the philosopher admitted that
the newspaper "took the mar. of tint age into
a larger world; it taught him to be interested
in the things that happened far beyond his
own personal range: it fostered the feeble
germs of humanity within him." The philo
sopher found that science w;is "enslaved to
ignoble causes" because it lent itself largely
to commercial progress.
This is interesting if not strictly in accord
ance with the facts. Boston: Small, Maynard
& Co. Price, fLS.
A Great MlHNioiiary Conference—
Last year there was held in New York the
great ecumenical missionary conference, so
called because the missionary effort of the
religious bodies represented has for its ob
jective the whole inhabited globe. The con
ference was not ecumenical in the sense of
the early ecumenical councils of the Christian
church at which all portions of the church
were represented. Jt was a grand gathering,
however, of the vital forces of the gospel
propaganda and furnished evidence of the
transforming power of the gospel over all
sorts and conditions of men, which the ene
mies of the Christian faith could not refute
or ignore. The reader of the two large oc
tavo volumes of the report will find a fascin
ating story of progress from beginning to
end. He will find the difficulties and ob
structions and discouragements of the work
fully set forth also. And yet this confer
ence did not by any means represent the
whole Christian church. It, in fact, repre
sented chiefly the churches called "evangel
ical" when it should have reflected the mis
sionary spirit of the whole of Christendom.
It, however, surely gave cavillers at Chris
tian missions some new and pregnant ideas
of facts accomplished. New York: Ameri
can Tract Society, two volumes.

Result of International Tournament.
Interest in the progress of the internation
al tournament at Monte Carlo, which has
been wound up, was unsually well sustained
and t'ne destination of the prizes was not de
termined until the thirteenth and final round,
begun on Wednesday, was concluded. In this
respect it differed from the big contests
wherein Lasker has been a competitor, inas
much as the world's champion is generally
in the habit of establishing his supremacy
well in advance of the final stages. His ab
sence on this last occasion enabled Janowski
—the Frenc'n champion—to attain the goal of
his ambition —the place of honor in an inter
national masters' tournament.
This is by no means an empty distinction,
even if the field from which be won could
not be compared with those of Hastings
Nuremberg, Vienna, London or Paris. While
he did not have the pleasure of counting
among his discomfited opponents such men
as Lasker, Pillsbury, Maroczy and Burn, it
should not be forgotten that he distanced
Schlechter, the acknowledged champion of
Austria, and one of the most prominent fig
ures in the chess world during the past dec
ade, not to mention Russia's champion, Tschl
gorin, Blackburne, the English, professional
champion, beside a number of others whose
fame is but little less than their*.
Schlechter, who shared first prize with
Pillsbury at Munich last year, has in recent
tournaments won his individual encounters
from Janowski, but this time the Parisian
proved to be the conqueror, and the result
practically settled matters as far as these
two were concerned.
As usual, the winners' score Is noticeable
for the scarcity of draws. He played through
out ten rounds and defeated eight of his
opponents, losing to Mason and Alapin- drew
in the eleventh with Marshall, whom*he sub
sequently defeated, and finally drew both his
games with Marco.
If the new rule for the replaying of drawn
games was intended to discourage them or
in any way to prevent their recurence the
tournament was a flat failure, for the aver
age was certainly not decreased. If its ob
ject was to favor the better players, It was
eminently successful, as none of the prize
winners except Tschigorin lost a supplement
ary game. Janowski had one "double-head
er"; that is, two drawn games with the
same opponent, and won his other supple
mentary game. Schlechter twice tallied a
brace and twice won in the play-off Scheve
drew with only two of his adversaries and in
each instance repeated the offense.
I Tschigorin neither suffered 'nor benefited
from the rale, for he drew twice with two
opponents, won one on the play-off.and lost
! another. The same can be said of Mieses
| who drew both his second encounters • If !
the title of "drawing master" can properly i
be applied to any one, Alapin now deserves
it. His record is quite a remarkable one and
the fact that he lost only one game to Marco :
and did not let a prize winner get the best
i of him in individual play redounds greatly to
I his credit. Of the twenty-one games actually
| played by him, fourteen, or just two-thirds
were drawn. Twelve drawn games were had
with six of his opponents, and the other two
were both beaten by him In the play-off
In summarizing the results, it is found' that
twenty-five, or over a quarter of the total of
ninety-one scheduled games, were " drawn
and that, upon being replayed, thirteen were
again drawn. Marshall and Marco both drew
eight games, Qunsberg seven and Mason and
Winawer both six. In adding the total num
| ber of drawn contests, it should be borne in
mind that the figure must be divided by two
in order to determine the number of games
actually played. The list of successful com

And leaves a nice little problem for the
Herald critics to wrestle with. What result,
gentlemen, please? ,
(a) An interesting innovation, original
i with Veteran Martins.
(bl—He trapped G. Buchanan, who played
1-5 here and lost thus: 1-5. 27-24, 2-6, 31-27,
6-10. 14-9. 5-14. 23-18, 14-23. 28-18, white wins.
(c)— This move 1 thought would win arid
correct game 2 (contested in the first round
of the Scottish tourney, 1899, between R.
Stewart and A. B. Scott), but I have my
doubts about it. What think the critics? R.
Stewart played 6-10 and A. B. Scott finally
drew. See Tourney Book, page 9.
(d)—l calculate to force the win by 31-27,
6-10, 27-9, 10-12. 9-6, 12-16, 6-2, but it won't
act. Instead of 6-10 play 14-9, 27-18, 6-10,
19-23 9- fi 7-I't 1- 6 32-28 *14- 9

Menomonie, Wis., Feb. 2a, 1901.—Checker
Editor Journal—Dear Sir: Noticing your re
cent criticism of the Draughts World's re
marks concerning the Barker va. Jordan
match reminds ire of an exuberant expression
made in the December number of that popu
lar magazine, which to my mind ought to be
subjected to a little analysis. It says: "Jor
dan returned to his native land with the
championship in the hollow of his hand."
Many checker players, including myself, are
of the opinion that the championship is not
held by Jordan quite so easily as that—in
fact, they do not believe he holds It at all.
If there is an express understanding among
the fraternity that a drawn championship
match decides nothing, then technically Jor
dan still holds whatever title he had to the
championship before the match. But there
is no sound reason why a drawn match •'de
cides nothing." A "no contest," as In chess
and other games than checkers, of course,
"decides nothing," but a drawn match at
checkers decides something, very decidedly.
It decides that the players are each entitled,
not only to a great amount of credit, but to
equal credit. The Boston match showed Bar
ker every bit as good as Jordan and even a
shade betteV, as he won the last won game,
showing staying qualities. I claim the cham
pionship is in abeyance—in waiting. For, If
Barker is required to win from Jordan in or
der to acquire his title, and Jordan is only
required to draw from Barker in order to re
tain it, the contest is unfair, and there is not
an equality of opportunity for both players
more is required of one than of the other, I
share the opinion of many other players, that
so-called "champions" have things too much
their own way regarding conditions of play
ing, etc., and right here is a good time to In
sist that Barker be entitled to as much of the
championship as Jordan, unless there were
express stipulations in the articles of agree
ment to the contrary. Championship contests
such as are held yearly by the Scottish play
ers are conclusive and satisfactory. But this
championship of the world "business," with
the conditions all on one side, named and in
sisted on mostly by one player, should be
relegated to the shades. No good judge of
match playing believes that Jordan can defeat
Barker, or Ferric, or Freeman (and several
others). Very respectfully,
—E. A. Beniamin.
To the Editor: There has been a little wind
blowing during the past week, and I wish to
say that nearly all championship* are decided
by playing matches at checkers of all possi
ble openings, because that way shows the
truest test of checker ability. Until some
one feels prepared to play me a restricted
match I think I am clearly entitled to the
< hainpionsblp.
A St. Paul man by the name of Mr. Blair
claims to be a champion, but as there are
about thirty men ie the state whom he can
not defeat, his claims are rather absurd.
1 will post $5 with you as a forfeit to play
him a match of any kind if he desires to meet
me. Let us say a little match for $10 aside.
Respectfully, —Bert Titus.

The Life Guards are two regiments of
cavalry forming part of the British house
hold troops. They are gallant soldiers,
and every loyal British heart is proud of j
them. Not only the Queens household,
but youra, ours, everybody's should have
its life guards. The need of them is es
pecially great when the greatest foes of
life, diseases, find allies in the very ele
ments, as colds, influenza, catarrh, the
grip and pneumonia do in the stormy
month of March. The best way that we
know of to guard against these diseases
is to strengthen the system with Hood's
Sarsaparilla —the greatest of all life
guards. It removes the conditions in
| which these diseases make thpir most
j successful attack, gives vigor and tone to
; all the vital organs and functions, and
! imparts a genial warmth to the blood.
j Remember the weaker the system the
I greater the exposure to disease. Hood's
iarsaparilla makes the system strong.

The Minneapolis, Whist Club's four, repre
sented by E. A. Montgomery, John H. Brigg«,
W. A. Kerr and J. H. Hemphill, defeated the
four representing the Chicago Duplicate Club
in the contest for the league's challenge tro
phy at Chicago last Saturday. Chicago led
for the first quarter of the match, being
three tricks ahead at the finish of the first
twelve deals, none of the Minneapolis players,
however, were -worried over the final result,
as every man on the team was playing good
whist, the kind that wins in the long run.
The feeling seems to have been fully Justified,
as the score detailed below will show. The
Duplicates were : represented by the same four
that has played for them In all of their tro
phy contests this year—Messrs. - Z. J. Frost,
H. Templeton. W. C. Coe and W. J. Taylor.

than likely you speak the same signifi
cant words yourself, and no doubt you

ing-down pains, headache, backache,
and had all kinds of miserable feelings,
all of which was caused by falling and
Inflammation of the womb, and after
doctoring with physicians and numer
ous medicines she was entirely cured bj
