Materialism's War Upon Litera- The dominant characteristics of an age are reflected as in a mirror in the educational practices of the period. In a materialistic age it is not surprising to find evidences that the concrete is overemphasized in the intellectual training of the young; neither is it gratifying to contemplate what the ultimate results will be to the genera tion at present in training. Certain it is tbat much havoc is being wrought in the domain of literature by the pre vailing practice of holding a master piece in the grasp of the senses, there by shutting oat its high significance, which is many times wholly spiritual. I It is no longer fashionable to merely I treat poem. Modern psychology Is excessive imaging, and a ea in which the motor activi r manifest themselves. Litera seized as the legitimate prey of :se demands because it innocent I i a more extensive field for their ;ion than any other human ;. What is the result 'i A few ions will suffice. Take the an legend. Being a legend it ■s mucQ that is wholly fanciful, [ md the reach of tbe physical The greatest interpreter of iesof the court of Arthur is ;ionably Tenuyeon. What was Hi's attitude toward his sub ie designedly failed to locate i because it was to him a city lint; or, to let him speak for "many-towered Camelot" was of shadowy palaces:" "The city is built isic, therefore never built at all, lierefore built forever." possible to represent these vy palaces" in wood and clay shattering the fair city of the Xion V Aud yet the castle in re has been freely and crudely by pupils, showing a dull I ioden, ''of the earth earthy."— modern psychology is not sole isible for this false step. It is that it originated in tbe that Tennyson during his 1 delighted in enacting the senses from the legeuds of Arthur, freely representing them In the mate I rials found iv the playground. But are the two processes analogous ? — I With a poet's imagination Tennyson saturated his thought with the deeds of tbe heroic knights unti 1 bis delight uaturally found expression in play.— I Here tbe initial desire for tangible ex- J I came from within. Tenny agination was fired by his play, he boy's imagination is fetter is superimposed play in the free construction of the castle. y.Lthe attempt to reduce Pris cilia's home in "Miles Standish" to] twentieth century wood must prove unsatisfactory. The reason is diame trically opposite from tbat just given in connection with Camelot. The I very commouplaceuess of Princilla's I home had idealized like common things in the minds of the young people who depended for their concept upon Long fellow alone. When that home ap pears iv a miniature of matter the poetic element is lost, the classic suf fers, but tbe reader suffers most. The same objection can be raised to stere op! icon pictures of "Evangeiue."—l The idealization disappears, and the j beholder fee Is that the lecturer has robbed him of a great art treasure — his former faultless pictures of a charming pcem Perhaps the excessive desire to re produce in material fornrthe creations of the poets is not to be traced to tbe psychologists exclusively, for people in general find satisfaction iv viewing in some tangible form buildings or IMS in countries beyond their pres reach. While at Cambridge Uni iity, we found great delight m go mto the Fitzwilliam Museum to v tbe Taj Mahal, a large, exquisite oductiou in ivory ot the most atiful building in the world. A moments' reflection, however, we the difference between artistic iatures or pictures of actual con ons, aud clumsy representations de led to portray the world of fancy, itcrature is further materialized by eh dramatization. No one will ques i tbe wisdom of enacting the scenes na classic, provided the impulse ies from within tbe reader as a re-l of his having imbued the spirit of selection. But iv tbe perfunctory rehearsal of events by young children, under the direction of an instructor, the entire incentive coming from ex ternal suggestion, lies little of real value iv literary interpretation. The classic beauty of aCreek myth is there by dissipated, vulgarized, for the child of poetic temperament. And yet thisj practice of dramatization extends thru all types of literary production. Can I p iets of the Shelley type, or any of the Romauticits. for that matter, sub-1 uiit to this treatment without incalcul able loss '! Thus far Keats has escap ed this desecration; and yet we are fartifying ourselves for tbe climax, when tbe child will return borne from ] B'jhool in the afternoon, mount a chair, assume a Winged Mercury pos lure, and recite, "I stood tiptoe upon a little hill." It la not claimed here tbat dramatiz ition should be abandon ed, but rather that much discrimina tion should be exercised in selecting only such narratives as readily lend themselves to this type of treatment, and also that the desire to act should come spontaneously from the reader himself.

The .greatest cat champion was a Frenchman, namely Chateaubriand, the famous author and statesman. — When Chateaubriand was made Sec retary to the Embassy at Rome the Pope, Leo XII.. gave him, as the most acceptable gift he could offer, bis own Micetto, a big cat of grayish red.— Earlier, when in exile in Chateaubriand boarded at the house of an Irish woman, a Mrs. O'Larrv, whose rooms swarmed with cats, big and small, in the welfare of wbicb the good woman's lodger took an even keener interest than herself. 'United by this common interest,"! he writes,'"we mourned together the misfortune of losing two lovely she cats, as white as ermines, with black tips to their tails." Often Chateau briand said that before his death be hoped to ' 'advocate some works of God despised by man," aud of these the two chief were to be the ass and the cat. Coming down to more recent times, it might be mentioned that the favorite pets of Mark Twain are two cats, which be has named Satan and Sin, respec tively. Satan is a black cat, while Sin is of the tortoriseshell variety, and both are the best of friends. If the society one keeps is a sign of j distinction, then the most distinguish ed cat of modern times is tbe Marquess of Haddock, or White Heather, names which have been bestowed upon the black feline favorites of Miss Janotha, the famous court pianist. This cat has been introduced to more members of royalty than probably any other pet in,the world, for tbe Marquess has been Miss Janotha s constant compan ion during her travels. At the Berlin court the Marquess is known as Othello, having been so re cbristeeed by the Emperor on account of its Moorish complexion. Miss Jano tha's pet is sucb a well-bred cat that even Queen Victoria made friends with him, although Heir Majesty did not care for cats. Mention of Marquess's travels calls j to mind that the mascot of tbe White Star liner Majestic is Jennie, a pet. cat wbicb boarded the vessel at New York several years ago without a passenger | Jennie is probably tbe most traveled cat in the world. She crosses the At-| lantic about once every week, aud as | a weather prophet she is considered to be head of the meterologieal office. — When she is seen making her toilet it is a sure sign of fine weather; if she runs about uneasily and squeals, a storm is coming on aud when she mounts theforedeck aud her tail swells to the size of a broom a hurricane is as hand. These signs are so infallible that the captain is said to pay no little attention to Jennie's tail.—Tit-iiits WOMEN'S WOES. BTATJBTOB WOMEN AUK FINDING RE LIEF AT LAST. It does seem that women have more I than a fair share of the aches and pains that afflict humanity; they must 'kei p up,' must attend to duties in spite of constantly aching backs,or headaches, dizzy spells, bearing; down pains; they must stoop over, when to stoop means torture. They must walk and bend aud work with racking pains and many aches from kidney .ills. Kidneys cause more suffering than anyj other organ I of the body.

BORATORT TEST A GREAT TRI t:MPH OF APPLIED BACTERIOLOGY. One of the great laboratorieg;[con cerns itself, for one thing, with the ty p'loid agglutometer" for tbe diagnosis of typhoid fever, one of the greatest triumphs of applied bacteriology. The method rests upon the original discov ery of Widal that tbe blood-serum of i typhoid patient differs from normal blood in this all important fact that when brought into contact with living typhoid genus it causes these germs to cohere into clumps or colonies, to "agglutinate." There thus arose a method of detecting typhoid fever de pending, however, upon the use of a powerful microscope, and, what made it impossible for physicians, a contlnu a'ly renewed supply of fresh typhoid germs as test reagents. Bat notice tbe p ogress: Next it was discovered tbat this "clamping" effect of typhoid blood j upon typhoid bacteria was just as ef I Qcient when tbe typhoid bacteria was dead, and, finally, it was observed that Bi the blood serum of a typhoid nt was added to a liquid snspen of the dead microbes in a test tube, these dead microbes cohered to an extent so extreme that they fell to the bottom of the tube in a mass visi ble to tbe naked, nnaided eye. Because of this fact, this firm now sends to physicians in the remotest parts of the country a pocket apparatus contain ing an ounce vial filled with sterilized dead typhoid germs, together with ac cessory apparatus, so that tbe physi cian may determine whether the pa tient's blood will cause these microbes to 'clump'—to determine, in fact, whether the suspected patient has ty phoid fever. j I Tbe Magic No. 3. ] Number three is a wonderful mascot for Geo.
