A handsomely Illustrated holiday book and one of permanent value it "Through the Gates of the (Nether lands by Mary E. Waller, the gifted author of "The Wood Carver of Lym pus," "A Daughter of the Rich," etc. It is published by Little, Brown and Company, Boston, with twenty-four photogravure plates after Lalanne and others by A. Montferrand, cloth, gilt top, in box $3.00 net. The illustrations Include pictures of the great Tower of Leenwarden, the East Gate of Delft, the Port of Hoorn, the Ancient Water Gate at Ameersfoort, &c. Life in Hol land, the habits and customs of Its peo ple, their true inwardness and spirit are cleverly and keenly depicted, mak ing the book one of surpassing Interest. The heroine of the story and her hus band, a Boston architect, are taking a few months' vacation in Holland, and what they saw and heard there, and their experiences, are given in a fasci nating way. Perhaps the most strik ing feature of Dutch life, as Miss Wal ler saw it, was the sober decorum of the people, the utter lack of noise, of laughter, of enthusiasm. Even the dogs were barkless. And every wo man, high and low, had a pet dog at her heels. Scenes at the opera and In the cafes are pictured, and Miss Wal- i Ier's conclusion is: "The men and wo- ! men take their material pleasures, as It seemed to me, with a kind of desperate sobriety," Of the pictures of the quaint old cit ies of the Zuyder Zee, there Is no space to spoak. All Europe can offer nothing stranger or more alluring than these, and Miss Waller has the keenest sym pathy for their charm. Mention should be made of the very graphic account of the terrible storm and flood that oc curred when the author was at Sehev enlngcn, which broke down the dykes, flooded hundreds of thousands of acres of the richest arable land, and brought awful desolation in Its track. The author's pictures of Holland are excellent. Even royalty could not stir the pulse of these phlegmatic Dutch men, loyal as they are. Once James and Persis took their stand In the square opposite the palace, which is the winter residence of the queen. It was on the day when she was expected In from her country place. "It was a silent crowd that little by little gathered with us! There was no chat, no jest, no greeting, no fussing about, no blowing on cold fingers, for the day was chilly; no stamping of feet for warmth nothing but a dead si lence." Finally a modest carriage drove up with a footman and coach man, "The queen and her consort had come and heads were bared with much the same gesture ns at obsequies; but not a word, not a cheer, not one wave of a handkerchief, except my own! There was a bow without a smile from the occupants of the carriage, and the pal ace doors closed behind the royal pair. The Dutch put on their hats and still stool from the force of Inertia. An Englishwoman who stood beside me during the long wait turned to me and said: "If that had been our king we should have yelled. Did you over see the like?' And I answered truthfully that I never had. iNow, eveVy one knows the loyalty of the Dutch to their queen and their love for her, but no one would ever have suspected It from that chilly reception. I was told afterward that the queen dislikes any demonstra tion on the part of her people. Speak ing as an extremely private Individual, who does not pretend to criticise royal ty of any kind, it would seem more pol itic at least to encourage a little heat of enthusiasm among the Dutch. There Is little enough In the whole land the climate, heredity and history for the last three hundred years are against It; but, oh! if she could but know how a good, hearty, ringing cheer would have warmed her heart on that chilly day when she came back to the capital in which she dislikes to dwell!" As a specimen of the author's "word painting," take this excellent sketch of the famous Port of Hoorn. Picture ft spacious haven, and beyond it a narrow port of entry, irregular in form, filled, not only with (small sail Ins craft of everv kind, but, to all appearances, with houses, trees draw bridges, warehouses, country carts, fish nets, rigging, fish creels, piles of cheese and quintals of fish the whole watched over by an indeiwibuable Tower, the principals Gate of Hoorn, that nearly wets Its foot In the waters of the haven. This chief Tower-Gate Is all unex pected gables, and tiny unintentional dormer windows breaking out In the moat surprising spots on the steep gabled roofs. The structure Is round ed behind like the 'apse of a cathedral, and flat before like the rigid Bargello In Florence, but shows everywhere a florescence of lovely cornice, windows and sculpture. It is a tower that at every angle of view presents a differ ent race. It la topped by an exquisite and audacioul-'ly aspiring steeple, which is the proud possessor of a clock tower, belfry, lookour, and far aloft a weathervane ship. Add to these de tails of construction a. coloring at once rich, subdued and ha-monlous. the dig nity of a noble arch tecure of a noble age, the grace that every stone gathers with the weathering of centuries, and you may form a concept, colorless ai compared with the actual, of this Tower that for so long has guarded the -inimitable Port of H.onr.
