MR. E. W. HORNUNG'S novel, "At Large," fails to meet the expectations of those who
enjoyed "Raffles" and "The Amateur Cracksman," and is so melodramatic as almost
to amount to burlesque. Other new books. Gossip concerning authors and the work they ,
are doing. New hooks received. j
To those who have read the adventures of
"The Amateur Cracksman," alias "Baffles."
anything which comes from the pen of F,.
W. Hornung is worth while. Though tha
stories of the daring and resourceful ad
venturer are nil short, the author has given
evidence in "I'eccavi" of his ability to hold
the Interest of the reader through the
length of a full-fledged novel.
Presumably, what Mr. Hornung has done
he can do again. However, in his latent
novel. "At Large." from the Sctibner press
the author has failed to maintain his ar
tistic standard. There Is genuine art In
his treatment of "P.affles." The delicate
shade of gentlemanly refinement which
characterised that personage were reflected
In the s'.ories.
It l different In "At Large." it you
want melodrama and that of the most
pronounced type here it is in the broadest
seiiM?. The machinery is all exposed io
the leader. The villain is painted in colors
that leave no doubt as to his character.
Where something might be left to tho read
er's imagination, the author has blazoned
tho bare fact.
So that if you like melodrama without cx
ti minting circumstances, you may have it.
There is nothing debasing in the characters.
There is an offense against good taste
which in ltlt is worthy of attention. I 'or
whatever may be chaiged against the ou
thur. he .succeeds in holding the reader to
the end of Ills tnle. Kvcn where situa
tions an overdrawn, where live men and
women talk "to the gallery," and where
othcis)vlolate every law of human natme.
the author has not failed to develop a plot
which has the elements ot vital strength.
In the opening chapter the reader is in
troduced to Sundown, bushranger of Amv
traha nd terror of all good men. He Ts
the cool robber, the man who never los-s
control of himself, who is the admired of
his gang, and who in a moment of com
passion refuses to take the purse of Jack
Kdmonstonc. an Knglish lad making hN
fortune in the colonle-". Po thankful is young
Edmonstone for the return of his all that he
promises that if tho time ever comes he
will be the friend of Sundown
The times docs come. I'pon his return
to Fngland he finds Sundown, now trans
formed info Air. Mile.", a guest at the home

is eng-tged in btlnslng about situations, or

Do not think thc.t the entire novel is
taken up wjith such thrilling paiasraphs.
There is much of sjbstance in the bonk.
Time spent in rending the tale is not

neglect "At Large." If you are looking
for anything else, you will de disappointed.
Other Xctv Hooka.
"lllgg's Bar and Other Klor.dyk? Ballads"'
Is tho title of a little book of verse by How
ard V. Sutherland, now just issued irom the
press ot Drexel Blddle, Philadelphia. Thn
ballads do not make a particularly strong
appeal, despite the picturesque material at
the singer's disposal, and some of them are
weakly reminiscent of Bret Harte's early
.California dialect poems. Mr. Sutherland's
ear for rhyme is something weird, else
would he not use "arrived" ns a rhyme I"
"side." or attempt to make "pork" rhyme
with "walk" and "more" with "raw." The
terrors of the Klondykr are not lessened
by the publication of efforts such as these.
The contingent output of historical ro
mances is maintained this week by a vol
ume from G. W. Dillingham Company. Nov."
York, entitled, "The Role of the l'neon
quered; a Itomance of the Courtship ot
Henry of Navarre and Marie flP Medici,"
the author being Test Dalton. The story,
us will bo se:i. is laid In a stirring time,
and the novelist has no lack o& picturesque
characters or of moving incident. He has
written a tale, which, while making no
special claim for originality in a Held now
worked almost to barrenness, will furnish
ei'tertalnment to readers net vet satiated
by large feeds of the historical novel.
"The Second Generation." by James
Weber Linn, i. the name of a novel pub
lished th's week bv the Macmillan Com
pany, New York. It is a strong and dra
matic story of American political life, with
a touch of lournalisOc atmosphere, and Is
effectively told. The denoument is striking
to a degree, and tho reader's interest will
be maintained to the end.
Florence Warden's latest novel, "The
Lovely Mrs. Pcmberton," is among the
new publications ot F. M. Buckles & Co..
New Yorlt: and is well worth while. The
story Is bright and clean, a pleasant and
wholesome society novel, lacking In tho
sartling and sensational features belonging
to other work of Miss "Warden's, and its
heroine is an attractive character.

Kastern poetry indeed, Kattern thought

volume. One word ot well-meant warning:
Let the reader who desires to enjoy the
real beauties ot this colle'-tiui of verse
never forget as he reads that these ar
ino love songs of young Ivistern blood,
whoso laws of conduct were framed to fit
their temperament, not ou:s.
Tho Scribners announce a new and en
larged edition of lirander Matthews's "Pen
and Ink." a volume of essays described by
its subtitle as "Papers on Subjects of Moru
or Less Importance."
These essays appeal directly to those In
'etcsted in various aspects of literature as
an art: and in this new and enlarged edi
tion this appeal is strengthened by the in
clusion ot other papers on allied topics,
rescued from two earlier volumes which
Mr. Matthews has now allowed to go out
of print.
Thus tl.e "Philosophy of the Short Story"
's now supplemented by a kindred "Note on

It is a common lemaik nowadays that
the ticli are becoming mote and more lux
urious and the poor are descending into a
deeper and deeper squalor. It is, therefore,
inteicstlng to learn from Doctor Tappun's
new boo!.', "England's Story." published by
Houghton, Mifflin i Co., Boston, that in
the time ot Queen Elizabeth there was a
v.ry gieat -ooutiast between the homes of
the rich and those of the poor. There was,
however, one ground in common ami that
waH--diit. In fact, the poor people were
forced to be more cleanly In their habits
trail the rich; for "while the rich man was
accustomed to remove fiom one to another
ot the houses which he might own when
inch In succession became unbearably dirty,
the poor man was obliged to keep his
single house endurably clean.

best-known books are ""The Voyage of the

ot which the last-nanitd has had a very

considerable success of this book by the
stipposlticn that every man named Jones

Mr. Thomas K. Watson rails his new book
"Napoleon; A Sketch of His Life, Charac
ter. Struggles and Achievements." He ap
proaches his subject from a popular and
democratic point of view, using the word
democratic in its broadest sihsc Napoleon's
personality is studied rather than his cam
paigns, and his political system, his laws,
institutions and civil administration are
considered by, Mr. Watson as his most Im
portant and enduring work, aiyl his at
tempt to reconcile modern liberalism with
the absolutism of a divine right is looked
upon as his fatal mistake. So long as Na
poleon was the soldier and the organizer of
liberalism as typlllcd in the best work of the
French Revolution, Mr. Watson holds that
lie received the support of the French na
tion, and also the sympathy of the nations
ot Europe; but his downfall began when he
came to terms with the Pope and put
France again under the heel of Rome, cre
ated a new hereditary nobility and married
the daughter of the Austrian Emperor.
Here, says Mr- Watson, Napoleon's system
changed, and he shifted1 his supports from
rock to sand. Mr. Wratson enforces his
opinions with much spirit and with his al
ready well-known power of language and
style. His book is published by' the Macmil
lan Company.

Yonkers. N. Y.. Feb. :i.-The 5-year-ola
daughter of William J. Simons, a lace man
ufacture of New York, was shot twice In
her home, at No. J0 llruc avenue, to-day
by a nursegirl known as Emma Fisher, who
then shot herself three times and tried to
complete her murderous work with gas.
The nursegirl Is a Hungarian. She- said
upon being restored to consciousness that
she shot the child because she loved her.
She is believed to be insane. Botli nurse
and child, it is believed, will live. The trag
edy was discovered by Mrs. Simons upon
her return home from a shopping trir.
On entiling the house slu noticed a strong
odor of gas and u; stairs heatd loud moans,
which were proc edlng apparently from the
servant's room. In the rear of the top Iloor.
On reaching there she saw the servant
sttetch'd on the floor, and Mr?. Simons's
little child, with blood-stained clothes, be
side he:.
Mrs. Simons nishesl distractedly to tlie
til-phone, and called up a physician. Doctor
Waldron examined the wounded baby while
the hospital surseon worked over the un
conscious form of the servant. Doctor
Waldron reported that two bullet wounds
were found in the left sloe of the child's
Imdy. in tho beait region, but that one had
glanced along a bono and passed oat at the
back, causing only a superficial wound.
The child was conscious and behaved In a
heroic maimer. 11 is believed she will le
cover. Her bloeid-staincd clothing, scorched
and bkickenwl on the right sale, showing
that the reolvcr had been held close to her
breat:, lav In a heap In the servant's room,
where it is supposed the tragedy occurred.
The- hospital stugcOn, after an examination
of the seivant's wounds, said that li-r
chances for life were of the slimmest, but
he could not definitely sny until he had
probed for the bullets. The three bullets
were aimed at her heart.' All cnt red her left
bieist. ne lust over the heart.
He said she was also siifferlns from pas
poisoning. She Is now in St. Joseph's Hos
pital. The revolver which was found in a corner
ot the room is a cheap, sewn-chainbered
affair, with six shots fired. Five of the bul
lets arc accounted for, and it is possible that
a. closer examination may result in locating
the other.
A neighbor said tho servant was extreme
ly fond of the child, and once, when threat
ened with discharge, she had said:
"Well. I'll come back find kidnap her."

With hut few exceptions the entire list ot
local stocks rallied in good shape at the
afternoon session of the St. Louis Stock Ex
change yesterday. At the close trust stocks,
which had been the feature throughout the
week, were strong, and had gaiucsl severall
points over Thursday's prices. The reeling
was better than it has been all week, and
the opinion was general that the disturbed
condition of the market Is over.
Bujing orders v.era plentiful, and the
slocks which have been decidedly weal:
since the latter part of last weik developed
signs of strength. Money continue-3 pUnttful
at from 4!. to .", and the entire., financial
atmosphere" seemed to have cleared. One
prominent broker was heard to remark that
dealers would enjoy their holiday to-day
much better than if it had com.; early In
the week.
The Germania Trust Company did not
como in for the general ilse. In ths morn
ing it sold as low as MM. and clOfd at $13S.
The action of the Board of Directors in cut
ting the capital and surplus of tho company
In half failed to have the desired effect
upon the stock. The fact that the capital
will be paid up by .May 1 had no effect in
advancing tho price of the shares.
Joseph Dickson, retiring president of the
Germania, was presenteel a handsome silver
loving cup by tlie directors of thn company
yesterday. The gift was accompanied by an
elaborate address, thanking Mr. Eickson for
the excellent work he had done In organis
ing and dliecting the affuirs of the institu
tion. Officials, of the Germania, Colonial, Com
monwealth and American Central trust
companies continue to deny that any con
solidation is under consideration. They do
not eleny that advantages would come from
such a merger, but state; that the sentiment
of stockholders generally Is against con
solidation. As has been ever since the recent
break In local stocks commenced. Thlrel Na
tional Hank remained firm yesterday, selling
at J213.a0. A good gain was made by Lincoln
Trust, which sold up to J2GI.
At a meeting ot the proposed Interstate
Associated Trust Company, held In the Bur
lington building yesterday afternoon, details
of organization were completed omi otflcers
elected. The election resulted In the selec
tion of Jams A. Reardon for president. Hu
bert S. Kronck vice president, J. Henry
Wollbrinck second vice president. Clarence
D. Warner secretary and August II. Kirch
ner. treasurer.
The company expects to commence busi
ness on March 3. As yet quarters have not
been decided upon. The institution's capital
stock Is "..000.iw. divided into shares of a
par value of S3 each. Several absolutely new
departures will be made by the company in
cirrying on its business. The plan will em
brace many of the propositions adopted by
the new Canadian Bank.
