Joseph Jefferson, by I* rancis Wilson.
Published by Charles Scribner's Sons.
Francis Wilson, the well-known actor,
will be pleasantly remembered as the au
thor of “The Eugene Field That I Knew"
and “Recollections of a Player.” In the
present volume just from the press Mr.
Wilson has chosen a theme that will at
once appeal to countless readers. Mr.
Wilson knew' Joseph Jefferson for many
years, and was associated with him In
the all-star cast of “The Rivals.*’ In
the preface the author refers those who
would seek the facts of his life and an
estimate of Jefferson’s work and art to
Mr. William Winter; to those who would
acquaint themselves with the ineffable
charm of his personality to the pages of
his autobiography. What Mr. Wilson has
attempted and that most delightfully In
his volume is the relation of remem
brances of the beloved actor, mostly anec
dotal, w'hlch give a very intimate and
near view of the personality of the man.
It seems that for many years Mr. Wil
son prepared himself for the task, as did
Boswell once, by keeping abundant notes
of discussions and conversations between
the two.
“Acting was his profession, painting
was his pastime. He had great passion for
both. When he acted, and especially when
ho did not, he painted. When he did
neither, he fished. He was an ardent dis
ciple of Izaak Walton. I have heard ex
Presldent Cleveland, who was often Jef
ferson’s companion of the fly and rod,
say he never saw any man get greater
Joy out of the sport of fishing than
Joseph Jefferson, and that the mere un
tangling of a line seemed a philosophical
pleasure to him.”
And consequently It is in this
charming way that the author approaches
the subject of his text—his characteris
tics, his great character study Rip Van
Winkle, his recreations—also as a lecturer
and author.
“I asked him if there were any truth
in the story of his going into a bank to
casli a check, and on being refused be
cause of there being no one to Identify
him, he leaned up against the conuter
and, in the tones of Rip, exclaimed. ‘If
my tog Schneider vas here he would rec
ognize me!’ and that Instantly there were
any number of people eager to identify
him? He laughed and said: ‘No, it is
not true, but it ought to be. It is too
good to be disproved. Oh, who Is it,’ he
| continued, ‘that rounds out all those
stories, giving them a quip and snap
which the original narrator would have
rejoiced to have thought of?’ ”
The entire volume is most charmingly
written; the style is easy and smooth and
innumerable incidents and anecdotes of
very great interest and fascination. There
are a number of full-page portraits
which are a pleasing addition to the text,
and the volume itself Is an exquisite ex
ample of the publlshed's art.
The sentence which perhaps best sums
up the spirit of Charles Wagner’s recent
volume, “Justice,” Is this: “Man is bom
to that half-light where ignorance and
knowledge struggle with each other like
the vacillating gleams and shadows of
twilight. Out of the depths of the in
finite a voice has cried ‘Come!’ and he
gees—before him the dawn, behind him
the night."
Vaughan Kester's phnoramlc novel of
American life, “The Fortunes of the
Landrays,” is to be published in England.
“Bob and the Guides’’ by Mary Ray
mond Shipman Andrews. Published by
Charles Scribner’s Sons.
Bob, the youthful hero of Mrs. Andrew's
latest volume, “Bob and the. Guides," is
such a clever, Jolly, winsome youngster
that he wins a place for himself in the
reader’s heart upon the very first page.
Bob is one of a small camping party with
four guides, situated in picturesque woods
of Canada. The text is made up of a
spirited account of the happenings of
these characters who might be daily ac
quaintances, and yet they are exceed
ingly Amusing. The incidents described
are so sprightly and spontaneous, so
fresh and crisp that the reader is at once
settled in the camp also, and most hearti
ly experiences all the woody sports of
camp life. It is charmingly written and
in the first story entitled, “The Linge
of M’Sieur,” the author proves the pos
session of a really adroit and skillful tal
ent for story-telling. The humor is sweet,
wholesome and pervading and the book
will undoubtedly win many readers and
cheer and delight them in the winning.
If you want a husband write a book.
Miriam Michaelson, author of “A Yellow
Journalist.“ assures D. Appleton & Co.,
her publishers, that all women writers
have offers of marriage.
“They were from men who have never
seen me,” she says, “ergo one can speak
of these questionable compliments. One
man sent me photos of himself and all
his family, and his parents in propria per
sona to inspect me and convey to me a
deed for a beautiful house, all on ac
count of my book."
Octave Thanet’s popular novel, “The
Man of the Hour," is full of sayings at
once witty, wise and graceful. Witness
the following:
“Nothing is so bracing to courage as
“I’m afraid I came awfully near being
bumptious. • • • I shall never learn to
hold my opinions and my tongue at the
same time, I guess!"
“If the council don’t put that feller out
for heresy they ought for foolishness! If
a man’s outgrown his church clothes, why
don’t he clear out to some other gospel
shop where he can get a bigger suit? I
say if you are playing a game and
don’t like the rules, quit! It’s better’n
trying to kill the umpire.”
“There isn’t a labor leader going who
doesn’t have to swap some of his opin
ions for his place."

WK& Sons, Bos 8, At*

of his Investigation of what has come to
bo known as Fletcherism. It is said that
Dr. Higgins was in very poor health and
had run the course of consultation with
his professional colleagues, with no per
manent relief, when Horace Fletcher ar
rived at Cambridge to submit himself to
careful physiological examination under
the direction of Sir Michael Foster. Dr.
Higgins volunteered as a check subject
in the experiments and was completely
cured. Dr. Higgins has termed his vol
ume “Humaniculture,” and while this
may sound abstract and meaningless, yet
the book Is most interesting to the lay
man .'is well as professional reader. It la
a new study of the first three inches of
the alimentary canal of man, to sum the
text' up in a *few words. In the first
chapter the author gives an outline of
“Fletcherism” and what It is. Mr.
Fletcher was in very poor health, and
was refused by the insurance companies.
“He happened at this time to be occu
pied wdth some business which necessi
tated a good deal of tedious waiting at
Chicago in mid-summer when most of
his acquaintances were absent from the
city, and to help to spin out the day
he used get through bis meals as
slowly and deliberately as ho could. He
noticed a very curious effect from this—
hunger was less frequent, lie ate less, his
weight decreased, and Ills health became
decidedly improved.”
Mr. Fletcher sums up his experiments
and discoveries of “aptitudes” by saying:
“If you eat only when you have earned
appetite, masticate your food thoroughly
and take great care to eat only wliat
appetite approves, the rest will take care
of itself.’’
The author has called the masticating
division of the animal kingdom the polto
phagie. and the non-masticating the
psomophagic. In giving directions for the
practice of poltophagy, which means pri
marily mastication and Insalivation, he
writes: “Mr. Gladstone, it must be re
membered, attributed his strength and
endurance to masticating his food, it was
said, thirty to thirty-five times; as a
matter of fact, when an Interested In
quirer counted the number of the great
statesman's Jaw movements in connec
tion with each mouthful, from the
strangers’ gallery at a public dinner at
Cambridge, he found the number was
usually as many as sixty or seventy.”
The author covers very fully in detail
his subject. It Is written in a clear and
concise style with the use of very few
technical terms and those very explicitly
Why Bill Was Mistakenly Suspected
of Cowardice.
W. J. Lamp ton in Judge.
I was so absorbed in the mountain pano
rama which spread before me at a turn
of the road that I did not notice the
mountaineer sitting on the fence by the
roadside until my horse shied and nearly
pitched me over into the little corn patch.
It was such a picture as frequently re
lieves the monotony of travel through the
mountain region of eastern Kentucky.
The mountaineer was not so visibly dis
turbed as I was, nor my horse.
“Good morning,” I said, recovering my
“Yer critter's some skittish,” was his
"He was looking at the scenery.” I
laughed, nodding toward the other side
of the road.
“That ain’t me, I reckon," replied the
mountaineer with the faint flash of humor
which comes to ills kind at times.
He was a typical specimen in cottOnade
trousers, hickory shirt, heavy brogans,
and a wool hat which had lost its pris
tine stiffness and wilted hopelessly about
his head. He was lank and long and
sallow—not fair to look upon, but his
eyes were clear and the corners of his
mouth turned upward. There Is always
something good in a man like that.
I asked him how far it was to the
mouth of Greasy, and as he was telling
me I saw a long, smooth-bore gun of an
cient pattern lying in the weeds In the
fence corner.
“Hunting hardly seems to be worth
while around here?” I ventured,
“Oh, I dunno ez to that,” he replied as
if In mild defense of his native heath.
”1 merely thought sc from seeing your
gun down there in the weeds,’’ I argued.
"Tain’t my gun.” he explained.
“No?” I said briefly; for the subject of
guns Is one to be handled carefully in
those parts, unless one knows definitely
what he is talking about.
"No Its Bill Grimes’. "
He smiled In a way that Invited inter
rogation and I took a risk.
“Where’s Bill?” I asked familiarly,
though I had never heard of Mr. Grimes
“Did you meet a woman a piece up the
road?” he inquired.
“Yes; Just beyond the turn back yon
“Well, that wuz Bill’s wife.”
“He wasn't with her when I saw- her." * !
“No; ner he won’t be ef he kin keep
outen her w'ay.” This wtvs so evidently
a statement which required elucidation
that he did not wait for me to question
him further, but went on with his story.
“You see, Bill come erlong here about
half an hour ago. with his gun, lookin’
fer John Sizemore. They’s havin’ some
trouble over the line fence Bill says ter
me ez how John wouldn't listen ter rea
son, an’ he wus goln’ ter try buckshot on
ter him. I tole him John wuz purty handy
with a gun hisself, an’ he'd better look
out. That kinder riled him, an' he flared
up like a bresh-flre. He stomped the
weeds down all around an’ swore that he
would have John Sizemore’s heart's blood
an’ rip his inerds out an’ skelp him alive,
an’ so on. tell I most got uneasy. He said
ez how his wife wuz a Sizemore herself,
an' he wuz done being holt up to chop
firewood an’ run errants. Jist then I seen
his wife cornin’ up the hill, an’ I says
ter him that we could kinder talk it over
in meetin’. With that Bill took one look
over his shoulder, an’, by hokey! he
drapped that gun ez ef ft wuz a red-hot
shovel, an’ over the fence he goes fer
the thicket. When she ccrme up she axes
me ef I I’d seen Bill anywheres around,
an’ I says. 'No, ma’am,’ an’ she goe« on
up the hill. Ez soon ez I think it’s safe
I’ll whistle fer Bill ter come back.”
“It strikes me.” I put in, “that Bill is
something of a coward.’’
“He don’t talk like it. I reckon Bill's
jist kinder narvious when thar’s women
“True enough,” I responded. "Some men
are that way.”
Then wo both smiled, sympathetically,
so to speak, and I hadn’t ridden more
than a hundred yards until I heard a long,
low, cautious whistle.

about a young Ontario boy, and it is to
the effect that he has become a King
