AMONG THE AUTHORS L. BEHYMER A. C. MoClurg & Co. of Chicago have for sale separate and in sets the com plete works of Mrs. Ward (Elizabeth Stuart Phelps). Her new book is prov ing very interesting. It is not written in collaboration with her husband, as some of her historical novels have been, She here shows an individuality that seems to have a perpetual freshness and a striking variety in her way of intro ducing scenes and subjects. Her style is tail ol womanly touches, and vibrates with deeper and stronger emotions than that of almost any other American author. In this book we find a story of every-day college life—one of those books which deal with human nature, the same in all times and coun tries. It illustrates the aspirations and thought fulness of healthy youth as it matures to manhood, and abounds in the kind of vitality and vivacity charac teristic of the life" of a man at college. We have no more subtle analyst of men and women than Mrs. Ward, and this is very forcibly illustrated in her new book, entitled Donald Marry. »*» One of Charles Scribners Pons' new bookß, which sparkles, with Mr. Robert Grant's pleasant wit and which reada like an autobiography, bo pimple, fresh and natural, with a vein of humor run ning through the narrative, is entitled. The Opinions of a Philosopher. The many readers who followed with pleas ure and interest the incidents of the early married life of Fred and Josephine, aa narrated in Mr. Grant's Reflections of a Married Man, will welcome eagerly the present volume, which ia a continuation of that amusing chronicle. Those who remember how thoroughly and delight fully human the Reflections were, and how irresistibly they appealed to the reader's evmnathiee, have only to be told that the Opinions of a Philosopher poaaeaa the aame charm in even a higher degree. The later life of Fred and Jo sephine is full of interest, opening up a new and varied field of experience that abounds in incidente grave, tender and laughable—all told in that delightfully humorous style that Mr. Grant's ad mirers know bo well. It is a charming picture of married life, and forms a vol ume tbat stands worthily on the shelf with the Reveries of a Bachelor and Rudder Grange. He writeß with a rare knowledge of women and her wave, and his conception and achiever : Us are alike successful. One of the later revisions and new editions brought out by the Houghton, Mifflin company is the Novels and Stories by Mra. A. D. T. Whitney, in a new and attractive binding, and the price reduced to $1.25 per volume. This series includes Faith Gartney's Girl hood, The Gayworthys, A Summer in Leslie Goldtbwaite'a Life, and We Girl?, a Home Btory.- The great demand for Mrs. Whitney's books haa suggested the adviaability of remodeling some of them and bringing them into better form. Accordingly, it has been de cided to bring out all her stories in somewhat smaller volumes aud at lower price, which should give tbem a new lease of popular favor. Very few stories by American writers enjoy bo wide a popularity as do Mrs. Whitney's and it may safely be said that no stories are more wholesome and more admirable in tone and spirit than here. Another book for the little men and women of this season of the year hae juet been ieaued by Messrs. Roberts Brothers of Boston, Mass., the well known publishers of Miss Louisa Al cotts' books. This new volume is en titled Comic Tragedies, written by Jo and Meg, two of the little women and acted by the little women. The book baa a foreword by Meg, portraits oi Jo and Meg and a view oi the house in which they lived. The volume is uni form with Miss Alcott's books. In the good old times when little women worked and played together, the big garret waa the scene of many dramatic revels. After a long day of teaching, sewing and helping mother, the greatest delight of tbe glrla was to transform themselves into knights and cavaliers of high de gree and ascend into a world oi fancy and romance. Cinderella's godmother waved her wand and .tha dismal room became a fairyland. Flowers bloomed, forests arose, music sounded and lovers exchanged their vows by moonlight. Nothing was too ambitious to attempt— armor, gondolas, harps, towers and pal aces grew as if by magic, and wondortul ecenes of valor and devotion were enacted beiore admiring audiences, Jo, of course, played the villains, ghosts, bandits and disdainiul queens; for her tragedy-loving soul delighted in the lurid parts, and no drama was perfect in herjeyes without a touch of the deiuonaic or supernatural Meg loved the senti mental roles, the tender maiden with the airy robes and llowing locks, who made impossible sacrifices lor ideal lov ers, or the cavalier, singing solt seie naues and performing loity acts of gal lantry and prowess. Amy was the fairy sprite, while IJeth enacted the page or messenger when the scene required their aid. irom the little library, still extant, these plays have been selected as fair examples oi the work oi these children oi 10 and 17. With some slight changes and omissions they remain ao written more than 4U years ago by Meg and Jo, so dear to the hearts of many other little women, fhis hook will glad den the hearts of many Uttlu men and vonien, in whose thoughts and lovo?, dear Aunt Jo is embalmed. S. C. Griggs it Co. have just issued a new work, by Marshal Browo, entitled Bulls and Blunders. It gives examples of blunders in expression, drawn irom many sources—from tne writings of dis tinguished essayists, historians and novelists; from the speeches of states men in congress und parliament; irom tho pulpit, the bar, the editorial chair; and from the sayings of tho intelligent and the stupid in nil ranks oi life. In co far as the bulla are ridiculous a:id laughable the mission of tho work is to amuse; but in the preparation cf th'B Volatile the author hud iv mind auother object equally important, viz., to in »•»■,/■*. 'fn thia end lib Jiaa not only given many blunders in thought and language, which come largely from in rongruoua ideas and the lack of training in clear expression, bnt be hae also told ue where the mistake ia, its nature and how it may be reditu d, Thia feature of the work should make it a uaeful one to the reader in the correction of hia own every day errors in speaking and writing, and in enabling him to get at the senee of obscure and faulty con structions. Messrs. Robert Bonner's Sona are all the time extending tbeir publiahing business into the trade in books. The repeated demands for tbe reprinting of auch atoriea as The Gunmaker of Mos cow formed the very natural induce ment to tbe Messrs. Bonner to keep tbe business of satisfying the popular de mand for these productions in tbeir own hands. The result is the Ledger Li brary, fast becoming bo popular, which ia a new eet of good old novela origi nally published in the New York Led ger, all of which were very popular at the time they were first published. They are nicely bound and well printed, and Include successes by such old favorites aa Sylvanus Cobb, jr., Mre. E. I). E. N. Bouthworth and Mra. Harriet Lewie, who are all sure to find boete of new readers. The last isaue oi thia popular series ia A Skeleton in the Closet, by Mrs. E. D. E. N. Sonthworth, author of The Hidden Hand, Em, For Woman's Love, etc. Thia iB a thoroughly inter esting book. It is a story of youth and beauty in distress, in trial and vicissi tude by laud and by sea. It shows the inherent courage, virtue and truth of womanhood and how it triumphs even in thia wicked world. Mra. Sonthworth ia a charming story-teller. She has written 50 booke and every one of them is full of delightful people whom it is a pleat ure to read about. She haa an inex haustible fund of humor, and ahe uuder standa the colored people aa only one born in tbe south and living with them all her daya can understand and love them. Her books are just as popular now aa they were 25 years ago, only there are bo many competing novelties and literary Beneationa, that the very beet books must be forced on public atten tion by constant advertising of their merits, the aame ac the latest issues of the press. The book ia illustrated by Harry C. Edwards. All of the above books for sale by Tho Btoll & Thayer Co., 139 South Spring street. Books at the Fair. I.net week we entertained yon with a visit to the qnaint little monnetry of La Kabida and its treasures ; thia week we cross almost to the opposite side of the fair grounds, to the women's building. You cannot miaa it as it 1b bo near home, viz., the California state building, being directly north of it. South o! it ia the horticultural palace. East oi it wooded ialand and the lagoon.

It ia intended to make thi9 library a permanent one ; to add to and complete it. aa far aa pos sible, aud to houee it in the woman's memorial building, for which the board of lady managers are now raisins fnnde. The room in which the library is ex hibited ia the gilt of the woman of the etnte of New York. It ia about 60 feet long, 40 lent wide and 20 feet high, and is finely decorated. The wainscoting and furniture ia of carved old English oak. Tne books, some 7000 in number, aro arranged in low caees around the walls of tha room. In point of numbers New York state leads with 2400 volumes, written by tbe women of the atate, gathered largely through the energy and industry ol tho Wednesday Afternoon club. Pennsyl vania comes next with 400 aud New Jer sey with 350 volumes. The other states are represented with collections ranging from a hundred volumes down. Massa chusetts, though she may claim more women writers than any other state, ia represented with less than 100 volumes, her committee having preferred quality to quantity—hence ehe Is represented with a very choice and interesting col lection. Foreign women nave made con tributions of considerable value. Frauce, for instance, having Bent about 800 vole, all in exquisite bindings. Bohemia aent 300, Sweden 130. Germany 300 and Great Britain 500 volumes. Japan has signified her intentiou of Bending a con tribution, but it has not yet been re ceived. An author card catalogue is in preparation, from which it is intended to print a classed catalogue with author index, with an "information card" for each author, giving full name, date and place of birth, facts aa to education, full maiden name and name and posi tion of husband, if married, and brief descriptive details of life and work. Women authors all over the world are invited to Bend their works to the libra ry, and monographs and special papers are specially desired. The library is iv charge of Miss Edith E. Clarke, cata loguer of the Newberry library, from which ehe has obtained temporary leave of absence. Next week we will talk of the chil dren's library and the Chautauqua ex hibit at the fair.

Holman Hunt's important volume on the Pre-Raphaelite movement is nearly ready for publication. Of all the men concerned in this movement there ia none left who could so well tell the story. Mr. Brice baa found time amidst his multifarious duties aa Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and member of the British cabinet, to do aome good work on tbe second volume of the new and revised edition of hia monumental book on the American Commonwealth, It ia expected that thia revised edition will be issued before the end of tbe year. Theodore Tilton'a new volume, to be cent ont under a Paria imprint, ia en titled Tbe Chameleon's Dish, a Book of Lyrics and Ballads, founded on the Hopes and Illusions of Mankind. The book consists of about thirty different pieces, in various keya, grave and gay, written during Mr. Tilton'a reaidence in Paris, and now published for the first time. Tbe Longfellow homestead, on Con gress Btreet, in Portland, which was Henry Wadaworth Longfellow's home in hia ynntb, has been presented to the Maine Historical society by the poet's eieter, Mre.

Mrs. Pierce couples with the gift the condi tion that the two front rooms shall be always preserved ac the "Longfellow Memorial Rooma," and that within six months after her death a suitable library hall shall be begun. The en tire property ia valued at $25,000. Antiquity of Grains. Nearly all tho groins now in uso are of unknown antiquity. Wheat was culti vated in all latitudes as far back in the past as wo havo authentic knowledge. Barley is thought to havo originated in tho Caucasus, but it was known and used everywhere in tho most ancient times. Oats, like rye, were unknown in ancient India and Egypt and among the Hebrews. Tho Greeks aud Romans re ceived it from, the north ofJSnrope. Had there been an early civilization on this continent the wild oats found here and there wonld probably have developed into tho useful cereal now considered ab solutely essential to tho proper nourish ment of horses. This continent is cred ited with having given Indian corn to tho old world, but this useful cereal was doubtless known iv India and China many hundred years before the discov ery of America. Cotton was used for making garments in India at a date so remote that it can not even be guessed at. Tho fact is men tioned by Aristotle. The first seeds were brought to this country in 1621. In 1666 tho culture is mentioned in tho records of South Carolina. In 1736 the culture was general along tho eastern coast of Maryland, and in 1776 we heard of it as far north as Cape May. Tho use of flax for making clothing 13 nearly as ancient as that of cotton and perhaps more so # —- plants of soft aud flexible fiber having been without doubt among the first veg etable productions of the ancient world and their practical value discovered soon after the invention of weaving.—San Francisco Chronicle. Dividing Cnllbrula. State division is no new thinrt in Ameri ca. It ia not exact to say that all the lands formerly held in tho West by the old states formed an integral part of these. But the lands held, fay by Con necticut and Virginia and Ohio, were so after a fashion and were merged into a great state. Besides this, however, we have tho formation of Kentucky out of Virginia, Tennessee out of North Carolina, Marine out of Massachusetts, Mississippi and Alabama out of Geor gia, Vermont out of New York and West Virginia out of Virginia. In none of these eases were the conditions more diverse than those of our two great di visions in California. Tkero is no record that any of these regret their now state l.ood, nor is there an intimation that tbey desire or havo over desired to mcrgo again into tho old state. The desire for a local self government ia southern California arises from no jealousies, no actagonisuis to northern California; and, least of all, to political place hurt ing. It is tho result of econom ic and political necessities'. We need a state government of our own. In fed eral affairs we have onr own separate officers, courts, military department, etc., just as Oregon has; we have our own financial and industrial independ ence as much as Oregon has, and wo have a new population quito as distinct fion. that of northern California as is that of the state of Washington.- Californian. Rubinstoln and the Deadhead. Those whose mission in life it is to en tertain the public aro always pestered by friends and acquaintances for free seats at their outertaininents. There probably never was a singer or an actor or a pianist who was not bored nearly to death by these people, many of whom had not tho slightest claim to ask tho courtesy they demanded. A pianist who was pre-eminently sue cessful In his day, and that day waa not far bagk either, was Rubinstein, who traveled nearly tho whole world over de lighting people with his genius. He, liko all others, was very much annoyed by requests f*r complimentary tickets, but most of tho timo ho maintained his composure, even though justly irritated. It is told of him that just before ono of his rcoitajs in London ho was accosted by an old lady in tho entrance hall and thus addressed: "Oh, Mr. Rubinstein, Inm so glad to boo you! I havo tried in vain to pur chaso v ticket. Havo you a seat you could let mo have?" "Madam," said the great pianist, "there is but ono seat at my disposal, and that you are welcome to if you think fit to take it." "Oh, yes, and a thousand thanks! Where is it?" waa tho excited reply. "At tho piano," smilingly replied Ru binstein.—Harper's Young People. Bank Notes. A new principle- has been suggested in tho manufacture of bank notes, If a sheet of paper bn plunged into a mixture of various coloring matters, each color will penetrate into the fiber with a dif ferent degree of speed, each brand hav ing a distinct color. It would be impos sible to imitato theso effects without an exact knowierlge of how tho mixture of colors was made. If a drop of tho mix tnroof colors he allowed to fall on a sheet of paper, a number of rings, each having a determined size nm\ shade, will be de veloped, and thus imitation will bo ren dered even more difficult.— New York GENERAL WASHINGTON NOTES. The Democrats Will Stick to Their Promises. The Republican Legislators Attempt ing; Intimidation Tactics. Attorney General Olney's Statement About the Geary Act—Jerry Simp- Son Refuses to Uebate With "Cyclone Jim" Marshall. Regular Correspondence to the Herald.] Washington, D. C, Sept. 15,1893. It aeema difficult for the Repubiicana to understand that the Democrats in congress intend to redeem the promises made in the Chicago platform. They actually seemed to think that it was possible to cajole the Democrats into let ting tbe McKinley tariff law, which was denounced from every Democrat stump and in the colums of every Democratic newspaper in the land, remain on the statute books, for awhile any way. And their mistake in tbe tariff business, which is now very plain to them, taught them nothing. They are now engaged in tbe useless bnslneeß of trying to frighten the Democrats ont of the no tion of repealing the federal election laws, laws which made the notorious John I. Davenport a possibility, and which in the hands of an unscrupulous administration have in the past (and may in the future, if allowed to stand) Burrounded the voting pieces of Amer ican citizens with bayonets in the banda of Boldiera. The number of Democrats who can be frightened by Republican twaddle is small, and, as Representative MaMillin eaid early in the eeaaion, "let those Democrats who feel timid about carry ing out the Chicago platform go to the rear; there will be enongh in front to do the fighting." The Tucker bill for the repeal of all laws providing for fed eral supervision of elections haa been reported to the houae and will be given the right of way until passed. How long it will take to pass it depends largely upon circumstances. The Dem ocrats are perfectly willing that it shall he fully debated, and no attempt will be made to force a vote until legitimate debate haa been exhausted, but no fili bustering will be allowed. Everything indicates that the debate on the Voorheea repeal bill ia drawing near its end in the senate and that the long contest of personal endurance by means of a continnona session of the senate with a quorum always preeent or within call will soon begin. Another attempt, in fact several of them were made this week to get President Cleve land's consent to some «ort of a compro mise that would secure an immediate vote and avoid the hard (eelings be tween senators which alvvavs follow pro longed sessions, but Mr. Cleveland waa inflexible. A number of the Democratic senators who will vote for the Voorheea bill are personally willing to agree to a compromise that would in come shape recognize silver, but having promised Mr. Cleveland that they would vole for unconditional repeal they do not feel at liberty to do co without hia consent. 'Ihe house committee on foreign affctrs will repoit a bill providing a sub stitute for the much dircussed Getry nnti-Chinese law, The bill introduced by Representative Everett, of Massa chusetts, ia now being considered W Ehe committee and will probably favor ably roported, with Blight modifications euggested by Representative Oonry of California. So many sensation?.! state ments have recently been made con cerning the intentions of .the adminis tration that Attorney-General Olney gave ont an official statement this'week that the Geary law would not be en forced until Congress acta, and that the government dees not acquiesce in the interpretation given the law by Judge Rose in bis recent decision, as to the right of private citizens to begin pro ceedings against the Chinese and call upon the government to provide for their deportation. No one can call at tho White House without becoming aware of the satisfac tion that iB felt from tho president down to the humblest employee oyer the good fortune that has followed Mre. Cleveland and her baby girl. Congratulations are still pouring iv by mail from all sections of the country and from all classes of people. Jerry Simpson's refusal to engage in a joint debate with Congressman Marshall ("Cyclone Jim") of Virginia, when they were both speaking at tbe same Virginia town the other day, has been the cause of Jerry's getting a lot of chaffing from his colleagues in the house. Jerry cornea from a cyclone country, and he Knows the danger to be expected from tbem, and wisely declines to knowingly put himself in the path of one. The tariff hearings before the house ways and means committee have at times beeu quite interesting this week, and eeveral manufacturer*' agents, who found themselvesconfounded when they presented the stock protection argu ments, went away thoroughly convinced that the Democrats on that committee are much better posted on the practical workings of tbe preeent tariff than the newspapers generally have given them credit for being.

LETTER BAG. [The tlertALD uno>r this heading- prints com munications, but does not assume respond blllty lor the sentiments expressed.) A Bit of History. Editors Herald: On May 17th, 1778, the philosopher, patriot and philan thropist, Benjamin Franklin, exeented his last will and testament, to which ia appended a codicil. From that codicil I make a few extracts: "I have considered that among arti sans, good apprentices are most likely to make good citizens; and having my self been bred to a mannalart, printing, in my native town, Boston, and after ward assisted to set np my business in Philadelphia by kind loans of money from two friends there, which was the foundation of my fortune and of all the utility in life that may be ascribed to me, I wish to be useful even after my death, if possible, in advancing other young men that may be serviceable to their country in both these town*. . . To this end I give 1000 pounds sterling to each of eald towns in trust. . . The said sum of 1000 pounds sterling, if accepted by the inhabitants of the town of Boston, ahall be managed under tbe direction of the selectmen, united with the ministers of the oldest Episco palian, Congregational and Presbyterian churches in that town, who are to let the aame out upon Interest at 5 per cent per annum to such young married artifi cers under the age of 26 years aa have served an apprenticeship in said (own, of good moral character, no loan to ex ceed GO pounda sterling to any one per son, nor to be leas than 15 pounds ster ling. The interest and one-tenth of tbe principal of such loan to be paid an nually. Aud it is to be presumed that there will always be fonnd in Boston virtuous and benevolent citizens williug to bestow a part of tbeir time in doing good to the rising generation, by superintending and man aging thia institution gratia . . If this plan is executed and aucceeda, aa projected for 100 years, the sum wilt then be 131,000 pounda, of which I would have the managers of the dona tion to the town of Boston then lay out, at tbeir discretion, 100,000 pounda in public worka, which may be judged of moat general utility to the inhabitants; such aa fortifications, bridgee, acque ducts, public bunding?, baths, pave ments or whatever may make living in the town more convenient to its people, and render it more agreeable to strangers resorting thither for health or a temporary residence. The remaining £31,000 Would b-vo continued to be held at interest in the name manner." Since that will was written four or five generations of artieana have enjoyed the benefaction of the great philosopher and Boston has furnished "tirtuous and benevolent citizens" to superintend the fund which haa gradually accumulated, and tbia month $27,000 will be set aside to the Half on street school and alao $75,000 will be used to pre serve the grand old shade treeß of Boston, planting new trees along the atreet9 and establishing a nursery in which trees and plants may be propa gated (or shade. The cty of Philadel phia is under equal if not greater obli gations to Franklin. This generation ones to his inventive genius many of tbe comforts and conveniences of life; and our national independence waa se cured because the pen of Jefferson and the sword of Washington were assisted if not directed by tbe brain of Franklin. R-nEitT J. Adcock. What is Constatency? "That which In mean men we entitle—patience, Ia pale, told CiWapJice in noble breasts!" —[ shakwsiieare. Editors Herald: At tbe recent cele bration in Washington, D, 0., Grover Cleveland delivered himself of the fol lowing peroration: "If the lawmakers ever forget their duty of broad and disinterested patriot ism and legislate in prejudice and pas sion, or in behalf of sectional aud Relflsh interests, the time when tbe corner stone of our capitol was laid and the circumstances surrounding it will not bo worth commemorating." Grover CUveland'a life-long official career haa been in behalf of sectional and selfish interests. With tbe most brazen effrontery, in the face of themoet unutterable money famine, he and hie cohorts have colluded to destroy one half of our money metal, in order to force the government to issue more bonds to purchase gold, and thereby perpetuate our present banking system. Thia gigantic conspiracy on tbe part o!"Wall street's idol" haa no parallel in human history. After fathering the present financial cataclyem which has bankrupted mil lions of people and driven thousands of patriotic citizens to vagabondage and suicide, bow can he stand up and apeak in thia manner? Think of it! this dia bolical act on the part of Cleveland and hia "lick-epittle time-eervera" has coat thia country nearly twenty billion dol lars in the shrinkage of values. What kind of patience ie it that would sub mit to such an enormity aa thia ? Have tbe people vacated their domea of reaacn ? Surely our gluttonous czar and iiie pi ratical crew must think, ac Buskin raid, that the American people "are a fallen race, fit only to havo dividends gotten out of and be damned." With the aus terity and punctiliousness of a crowned despot, he ordered an extra session of congress to be called to destroy millions of dollara worth of private property in order to enrich the pampered end un crowned monarcha of goldbug plutoc racy. What are the people going to do about it? Will they forever enbmit like sheep to be shorn in thia cold, ruthleea mauner cf nearly all their belonginga? To what extent doea pa tience cease to be a virtue under these trying conditions? Ambrose Bierce in a very poetical manner answers thia queslion. He says: "The empty stom ach is a bad citizen. The aons of fam ine will rise—the hungry, the ignorant, the vicious and the visionary—God pity them, they muat be shot!" Like the "bees murdered for their pains," "the end justifies the means." Property wrung from the the agonized throes of industry "muat be protected I" The bullet, the bayonet and Gatlinggun are always ready to do valiant service for our plutocratic buccaneers. Trenchant tongued Borpents of the "subsidized press are busy now hissing the caustic venom on an already outraged people, and seem to gloat over their ineffable spoliation and ruin. Will the patience of the American people permit Grover Cleveland's "game of bluff" to win any further after he has so audacioualy "shown his hand ?" Surely not, if they are compos mentis. J. R.
