Hamlin Garland's Little
Norsk -Book Note*.
[BY L. B.]
For many yeara, in debating societies,
a popular subject has been the question,
Is the Pen Mightier Than the Sword?
A new book -has recently been pub
lished whose keen satire, scorching con
tempt, bitter wit, and amiable humor
will strike the readers and enter deeper
than the keenest weapons. Indeed, this
particular pen is mightier than the
sharpest sword. It is an original work,
aimed at the weak mortals who forget
they are men and become either fools
or villains. The title is singular and
original- Black Beetles in Amber. The
author, Ambrose Bierce, has been a con
tributor to the daily and weekly San
Francisco press, and is well known on
the Pacific slope. The verses included
in this remarkable book are all fugitive
poems, written and published at various
times in the last ten years. The
articles are especially addressed to the
people of the Pacific coast, and many of
the descriptions will be recognized as
pen portraits of prominent men who
have been leaders in affairs of state
government in California for the last 20
years. The foreign reader will recognize
in these portraits a similarity to charac
ters in their own immediate vicinity,
and will be astonished at the power and
depth of analysis to which the victim
will be subjected when brought under
the scornful gaze of the writer. No
writer before the American public could
have written anything like it. lie is a
man of genius, whose standard of a
gentleman is very high and honorable—
a sneak he despises, and a man wbo
would sell out his fellow man ia to him
the most contemptible creature in ex
istence. His reference to Waterman,
Boruck, E. S. Salomon, Stephen M.
White and Stanford are to be read only
to be appreciated. His tribute to Gov
ernor Pennoyer, of Oregon, is a noble
effort. He has noble sentiments, and a
masculine sympathy, as strongly ex
pressed, for noble deeds, as his aversion
for ignoble ones. It is such writers
that create taste, and whose efforts live
on and eventually become classics.
Black Beet es ln Amber, by Ambrose Bierce.
For taie by atoll, Thayer & Co.
There in a noble little woman, well in
formed, who writes for the instruction
of society, and who has done more for
its improvement than any other writer
in America. This is Mrs. M. E. W.
gherwood, whose latest work, The Art
of Entertaining, is eagerly read by all
whose lives are paeßed in the choice cir
cles of America and Europe. She is a
refined and cultivated lady, who would
like to a«>e American society, such as she
finds it chiefly in New York, reformed
and made a society of intellectual men
and women, who think more of enter
tainmente|ior the eye and the mind than
those usually provided for the stomachs
of gluttons and heavy drinkers. She is
well bred, and has learned much of good
living and good breeding both in Europe
and America, and this new volume is
full of this acquired knowledge with
which she is endeavoring to enlighten
the men and women of our country.
Her methods are refined, ehe does not
find the crudeness of our society a sub
ject for ridicule, but regards it as the in
evitable results of a new country full of
rich and aspiring people; tells tbem of
their deficiencies and shows them how
to rectify and correct them.
Her valuable work covers a vast
extent, private family dinners to Btate
banquets, simple ''evenings at home" to
balls in royal palaces, from the prepara
tion of food in the kitchen to its con
sumption in the grand dining hall. She
tells how the English, French, Dutch,
Italians dine, how their tables are set,
and viands served; gives the duties of
host, hostess and guests, based upon
actual knowledge of the best system of
etiquette which now prevail among the
higher claeees of society.
It ia a valuable acquisition for any
lady or gentleman in need of information
on such subjects.

Mr. Howellsi' book, entitled The Qual
ity of Mercy, waa such a Biiccsßsful effort
that the publishers are bringing out a
paper edition, bo that all readers who
admire hiß works can have the pleasure
of reading it. It ia a story of defalcation
of a treasurer of a rich corporation, who
is rich, but wishes for more; who uses
funds not his own for personal ends,
pavß it back, mes it again—and cannot
repay. Then follows the falsifying
of the books, and more stealing;
he iB at laet found out, and
given three days to make restitution.
He contemplates three things, surren
der, suicide or flight to Canada. He
has two daughters, whom he loves in
hia way, and he muet think of them.
He cannot, therefore, surrender and
take the consequences; neither can he
make restitution. He has a large
amount of stolen money in the house,
so he stats to Canada reaeoning that
there, with thia capital, he can make
investments, retrieve the amount dissi
pated and repay in full hia defalcation.
He etarte, but meets with a railway
accident, in which his name ia so con
nected as to leave an impression that he
ia cremated in a pullman car. He goes
on to Canada and buries himself in the
wilds, learning only after many montha
the facts of this report. The fates of
the deserted daughters form a distinct
part of the story, and is told with all all
the author's skill and finesse. He also
gives a fine account of the opinion of
Hatboro citizens, who, on only a rumor
without a particle of evidence, proceed
at once to brand him aa a defaulter and
fugitive. When the exposure cornea
there is a great sensation; then the
whole thing Beema to be forgotten, and
in a few years it appears that all
would be satisfied if the defaulter
would return and resume life under the
old conditions. As for the daughters of
Northwick, they absolutely refuse to be
lieve the charge and only believe it
when the fugitive writes to a Boston
paper of his Buryival and admits his de
falcation. Northwick'a end seems dis
tinctly better than be deserves, and
tbat of his daughter Adeline quite the
reverse. It is the guilty who escapes;
it is the innocent who is crushed. The
story is written with admirable skill,
and no less admirable force. The situa
tions are strong, the dialogue keen and
natural. There is nothing vague and
indetermined about it, and it will rank
aa one of the best efforts of this popular
of Mercy, by W. D. Howelli. For
sale by Btoll & Thayer Co.

Hamlin Garland is stitl one of the
most accurate, sympathetic and faithful
writers of people and their life in our
great weßt. His stories read ac though
they were the daily, everyday life ol
their subjects, which perhaps they are.
He has a fine tribute to the northwest
in his bijou volume of A Little Norsk.
The Little Norsk enters the book as a
baby who was found beside its dead, fro
zen mother by a young farmer, who,
aided by his middle-aged paitner,—
there were no women in tbe family,—
comforted the child, adopted her, and
gave her ahappy home. As the heroine
became a#oman, both men suspected
themselves in love with her, but she
suddenly made an unfortunate marriage
which brought misery to all concerned.
Although there is little imagination in
the book, there is a lot of romance for
those who do their own imagining.
Tbe sketches of life on and near a
new prairie nome are photographic in
their fidelity.

Young people who wish to know
something about Boston as it is now
and would appear to persons of their
own age, will find a very interesting
book in The New Harry and Lucy; A
Story of Boston in 1891, by Edward Ev
erett Hale and Lucretia P. Hale. Harry
and Lucy spend a lot of time at the
Hub, and tell in a series of letters or
chapters just what they did and what
they saw. In spite of all the guide
books, special histories of cities, and
everything of that kind, a great many
questions regarding the points of inter
est in the older and greater towns of the
United States remain unanswered until
something of this sort appears, which
leads the reader along co innocently and
naturally that he learns a great deal
before he suspects that the book he is
reading is of a serious and educational
character. Some of the elders will find
this book interesting, as well as the
young people.

The Blue Grass Region oi Kentucky,
by James Lane Allen, ia a description,
in detail and without exaggeration, of
the true "garden spot" of America.
The famous Blue Grass country, with its
beautiful women, fast horses and seduc
tive whisky, has been talked of for a
hundred years, yet those who visit it
come away with sentiments akin to
those of the Queen of Sheba after Bhe
had visited Solomon. Professor Allen
knows this country well and he de
scribes it and itß inhabitants in a man
ner entirely original and quite delight
ful. After going through its pages, no
reader will wonder why the inhabitants
of the Blue Grass Region seem invariable
to be the happiest and most thoroughly
satisfied people in the world. It is ele
gantly illustiated.
The October Century is a very rich
and attractive issue. It ie, of course, a
Columbian number, and its principal
subjects are on the New York and Chi
cago celebrations. The front plate is a
copy of the famous Lotto portrait of
Columbus, now owned by Mr.
J. W. Ellsworth, of Chicago.
It ia explained by a well-written paper
by the critic, John C. Van Dyke. In
the same number, Columbus is further
discussed in an article on the homeward
voyage of Columbus, alter the ereat die
-1 covery. This paper is contributed by
i the Spanish writer and statesman, Cas
-1 telar. The Fisheries Building, the
United States Government Building,
and the elegant Art Building ia described
and illustrated by the architect, Van
Brunt. Archibald Forbes furnishes
What I Saw of the Paris Commune, and
Edgar Fawcett, Pavement Pictures.
An article of immediate and almost sen
sational interest is Prof. Jenk's paper
on Money in Practical Politics, describ
ing the methods, shamefully common,
in what are called practical politics in
thia country. He goes into moet curi
ous details, and diacuseea the causes of
corruption and proposed remedies. The
article ia editorially endorsed, with fur
ther suggestion as to means of preven
tion. H*rry Term, the artist, curioualy
illuatrateß a paper by Charles Howard
Shinn, on Picturesque Plant Life of Cal
ifornia. The topics of the times are
Money in Electione : Liberty, Law and
Order; What the Columbian Exhibition
Will Do for America. It ia certainly the
beet number of this year.

HE DOES "STEEPLE WORK."
Chat with an Expert Climber About His
, Business.
Aleck Wiggins wears the belt as the
champion climber of Chicago. A New
York man tool He had been doing all
sorts of high climbs in New York for
years, and hearing that a man was need
ed to put up and paint the flagpoles
on the World's
fair buildings he
went there at
once. The man
agers were de
lighted to see
him. as no one
else had applied
for the job. He
has a monopoly
indeed, but not
what people gen
erally would call
a "soft snap,"
though he earns
fifteen dollars a
day. "There
aren't many of us
in the business now T ," he said sadly in a
recent interview. "Old Jimmy Fergu
son was killed not long ago. He slipped
off the tower of the Albany penitentiary
and was mashed on the ground. But
Jim was too old for this business. I say
that when a man gets to be fifty-sis
years old he wants to quit climbing
steeples. Charley Shaw was another.
He dropped too. He worked on the
stack of Clark's thread mill at Newark,
and the papers were full of it at the
time."
ALECK WIGGINS.
Aleck went to sea at the age ( [ thir
teen, and soon became noted even among
sailors as a climber. His first exploits
on land were so well paid that he quit
the sea and now for twelve years has
been doing "steeple work," as it is calk"!
by the "profession." His achievement
on tbe Manhattan Athletic clubhouse in
New York was the wonder of the time.
The flagpole is forty-five feet long, and
it starts from the crown of a cupola
forty feet high, so the top of the pole is
just 300 feet above Madison avenue. He
painted the pole entire in two hours and
got twenty-five dollars for it. Speaking
of his method, he says:
"I use what's called the boatswain's
chair in going up. It's a board with a
rope through it. The rope comes up and
winds around the pole. Then I have a
strap down under the chair for a foot
rest. This strap goes around the pole,
and I just push myself up and then
fasten the rope that holds the boat
swain's chair.
"Liberty pole in Philadelphia was a
good job. That is 187 feet high and the
pole is only four inches through at the
top. I went up that, and Logan square
was full of people expecting to see me
slip off, but I fooled them. I finished
that job in three days and got seventy
five dollars for it."
An Unbiased Criticism.
A Portuguese boy in a Malacca pub
lic school was told to write a composi
tion telling all he knew about the Eng
lish. This is what he wrote, the spell
ing being amended except in the one
marvelous word "docnt," which means
dogcart:
' English is very proud and very white. They
are mostly governors, schoolmasters, police
men, magistrates, and a few aro lawyers and
doctors and banks and many other things.
They never work. They wear hats and boots
and ride in docuts. Some English goes to
church, but only once. They ate clever ten
nis and ball games and drinks much brand>
and other things. Some are married. They
eat a much quantity of many things. One of
their great delights smoking cigars and
shooting and raining coming home in it.
English is clever at all things. My father says
Portuguese is black and ngly and catch fish,
but English is white and pretty and eats fish
what is caught. Father is black and ugly, but
making nets. English is very fierce. If any
body does something they swear dam. English
women is few. They rido and play the music
and sing and make faces. It is easy no work
nor little houses. I don't know any more Eng
lish. That is all I know.
The small community of Englishmen
in Malacca looks upon the circulation of
this composition as a very bad joke, but
the residents elsewhere say that it is so
true that if this Portuguese boy could
only be taught spelling he would prove
a second Rudyard Kipling.
A Dusky Petrel.
A rare visitor to English shores is in
teresting Sheffield naturalists—a dusky
petrel, believed to be theouly live speci -
men in England. The bird was found
flying about inside a fish truck, which
arrived at Sheffield from the north, and
it is supposed that it was attracted by
the smell "of fish—its usual food—and
was shut in accidentally. Though the
stormy petrel is common enough in
north Britain, the dusky petrel is
scarcely ever seen so far away from its
usual habitat—the west coast of Africa
and the Mediterranean. Every care is
being used to preserve the bird alive.
A Cure for Kbeumatlsm.
