THE KANSAS GH JOURNAL, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6. 1899. ON OUR BOOK TABLE LAFCADIS HEAR!? OX JAFAJT AND TUB JAPANESE. Memoirs7 of Alpbbnse Daudet Indian SI Tin and Legend The Story of France by tlie Hon. Thomas E. Watson Notes. "Broken" were too abrupt a word. Slum ber was not broken, but suddenly melted and swept away by a flow of music from the night without music that filled one with expectant ecstasy by the very first push of Its sweetness: a serenade a play Ins; of flutes and mandolins. The flutes had dove-tones; they cooed and moaned and purled; and the mandolins throbbed through tbe liquid plaint of them, liko a beating of hearts. The players could not be seen; they were standing in heavy shadows flung into the street by a pearly wintry moon. Nothing In all the violet gloom moved but that music and the Quivering star light In dazzling flakes that seemed some times to melt and flow away in streams of lilies on the darkness. Flutes and mandolins a simple melody nothing more. Yet it seemed as if the sight Itself were speaking, or, out of the night, some passional life. Ions since dif fused Into Nature's mystery, but continu ing to haunt the brittle, sparkling dark ness of some strange world sleeping always under the sun and awakening only to the Mars. And its utterance was the ghostly reiteration of rapture that had been, and never again could be, an utterance of In finite tenderness and of Immeasurable re gret. Now nothing in perfect art can be only voluptuous; and this music. In despite of Its caress, was Immeasurably blending of melancholy with passion in a motive so simple, over and over .again repeated, like a. dove s cry, had a strangeness of beauty like the musical thought of a vanished time one rare survival of an era more warmly human than our own, of some lost art of melody. The remembrance of the effect of this serenade, heard long ago. Is almost Identi cal with the haunting and persuasive in fluence exercised upon the reader by Iiaf cadis Hearn In his delightful book of fan tasies "Exotics and Retrospectives." A . Sff ot dreama. It is, bound with an In visible thread of mystery; another glimpse of unfamiliar Japan through the eyes of an Occidental scholar who Is somewhat of 'a mystic and an apostle of estheticism. It was a fortunate thing for the English language and her people when Laf cadls Hearn went to Japan. He has opened up new avenues and vistas of light through which we discern the exotic beauties in an almost alien field of thought. The volume of essays, which he now otters us. Is with out exaggeration one of the very rare books that a reader will shelve at once in his memory and often refer to with eagerness and delight. "WT1XIA1I GRIFFITH. Tbe Dandet Memoirs. The letter "I" was born in France. Any one traveling in that otherwise lovely land "must be chary about looking In the mill ponds should he have no desire to see the face of a proprietary Frenchman bubble up on the central surface of each bubbling pool. Alphonse Dandet has been memoired by his son Leon Daudet. Fortunately for the world and especially for us, Daudet, here was a less offendins 'subject of the president ot France, in this direction, than his son. " Alphonse Dandet was well armed with patience and necessity, and lived to tri umph over adversity and bind a well-earned cabbage leaf on his own head. The world applauded the act because cabbages were plentiful that year and the honor was en tirely his own. Despite the minor flaw of egoism, however, these "Memoirs of Al phonse Daudet" by his son, with supple mentary remarks by Ernest Daudet, are very Interesting and reveal a really fine character, who, as an author, penetrated farther, filled more hearts, brightened more homes, cast more light and laughter into gloom, touched nearer the source of tears, and made all feel younger and fresher for .s an evening spent In. his society, than any pf his contemporaries. Though a natural ist, even the austere II. Brunetiere saluted him with the heavy artillery of his ap plause. (Boston: Little, Brown & Co.) Indian Myths and Legend. Jeremiah Curtin has probably enriched the English language from foreign sources more distinctively and with more evidence of profound erudition than any other living American. He is a master of sonorous and expressive language and it Is with cran ing expectations that we await his each successive volume after Its announcement. "Creation Myths cf Primitive America" is his first study of the unwritten mental productions or the American aborigines. It contains twenty long myths taken down word for word by him from Indians who knew no religion nor language save their own. and the chief of whom had not seen a white man until years of maturity. Theso myths ore all of remarkable beauty and exceptional value; among tho more note worthy is "Olelbis," containing an account of the creation of the heavenly house in the Central Blue, lhe highest point In the sky above us. In this myth is described also the great world fire which was extinguish ed by a flood: and next a reconstruction of the face of the earth, which gave the form existing at present; second, the great tale of Norwan, which, with an incompar ably greater wealth of incident, resembles the Helen or Troy story. This tale gives the origin ot the first war in the world, not among men. however, but among gods. A woman is the cause, as in Homer's epic, but this woman, Norwan. is light. The struggle between tho Sun and the Lightning Hero; the stealing of the thrco Swan Maidens from their father, TVIpajustl by Hakakaina of the North; tho great mus ical contest of tho gods at the mansion or waldadikit: the marvelous wanderings of Norwanchakus and Kerlba; the ascent to tho sky of little Lasaswa and his conver sation with the sun: the road to immortal ity, begun by the Hus brothers and inter rupted by Sedit, will not soon be forgotten by any reader. In addition to their intrinsic beauty, theso masterpieces 01 primitive numan mind in America antedate by many ages the earl iest iorms ot, thought represented to us in the records of Egypt and Assyria, henco their value may be easily inferred; they explain to us things which had become unintelligible to the priests of Egypt and Assyria in the religious systems which they themselves taught and studied. r The -olume contains an elaborate in- traduction and all necessary notes. (Bos - ton: Little, Brown & Co.) Tbe Story of France. Tho first volume of "The Story of France," by Hon. Thomas E. "Watson, is nil and even more than it promised to be. Tho author shows a prehcnMIo power in grasping the largest questions In the his tory of the French people and, further more, he conducts us to a position com "manding a wide prospect of tbe arena where wo nlo obtain a new view of in numerable gladiators, actors and actions. The complete work will be in two vol umes, and tho one Just issued embraces the history of the French people from the settlement of the Gauls to the death of Louis XV. The second volume will take up the period between tho death of Louis XV. and the consulate of Napoleon Bon aparte. Mr. Watson's treatment of his tory is from an entirely modern point of view. The well known political leader says in hU preface that it has been his pur pose to lay before his readers "a clear narratlte of the gradual development of a great people. ... to note the varying forms of gmernment, to trace the ancient origins of modern laws and customs, to markthe encroachments or absolutism upon popular rights, to des-cribe the lor.g con tinued struggle of the many to throw off the yoke of the few. to emphasize the cor rupting influence of the union between church and state; to illustrate once more the blighting effects ot superstition. Ig norance, blind obedience, unjust laws, confiscation under the disguise of unequal taxes, and a systematic plunder vear by year of the weaker classes by the Stronger." The author Is in very keen sympathy nith the mass or the people, and for the first time we have the historical point of Plew of the laborer and mechanic told In a stjle that is bold, racy and uncon ventional. It is a vigorous and democratic presentation of history. (New York: Mac mlllan Company.) THE REVIEWER. Books and Their Sinkers. "The Forest Lovers," by Maurice Hew lett; and "The Lire of Shakespeare," by Sidney Lee. were two of the three books published during 1SDS. which have betn crowned by the London "Academy" this month. Mr. Hall Calno has been at work upon his novel, "The Scapegoat," a book which has been ono of the author's favorites among his works, and a carefully revised and en larged edition is to be published shortly by D. Appleton & Co. "The Rogue's Comedy," in three acts; and "The Physician," in four acts, two plays by Henry Arthur Jones, author of "The Dancing .Girl" and "The Liars," have just been announced for immediate pub lication by the Macmlllan Company. Mrs. Gertrude Athertonthe authoress, is at present In America. Rumor has it that she is In 'Washington studying life there for a forthcoming novel on American life and manners. Her successful "American Wives and English Husbands," by many deemed her best work, is now in its fourth. ediUon. The subject of the character sketch in tho February Review of Reviews is Aguln aldo. the Filipino Insurgent -leader. A very remarkable career is here outlined, by ono who has known tha young leader inti mately. The article Is illustrated from In teresting photographs. The G. TV. Dillingham Company having secured the American rights, now have in press 'William Le Queux's novel. "If Sinners Entice Thee," and will publish, following it, during the year, "In The Day of Temp tation." "The Bond of Black, which is now running serially in some twenty news papers, will be Issued before the close of the year. "With Dewey at Manila" is the title of a war article of rare Interest in the Feb ruary Issue of Harper's Magazine, Joseph 'L. Stickney was on Admiral Dewey's flag ship, the Olympla, and was in a position that enables him to give the most vivid and readable account of the historic battle in Manila bay that has yet been published. "Don Qulxoute," for use in homes and schools, has been edited by Clifton Johnson and will contain the famous Illustrations by George Cruikshank. This version, in Its clearness and vavacity and faithfulness to the original, undoubtedly excels any Eng lish translation ever made. In no Instance has anything vital been sacrificed, and ex cept for omissions the original text is practically unchanged, while thoroughly clean and wholesome. , "The Real Edison" Is a man to know whom Is the desire of everybody who has seen an incandescent lamp, watched for tunes grow or dwindle by -the remorseless tlck-tock of a stock ticker, or heard a negro melody on the phonograph. A study of him from the life Is given In Ainslee's Magazine for February, which is Illustrat ed with some splendid new photographs. In addition to other interesting papers and the usual departments are stories by Bret Harte. Jerome K. Jerome, Opie Read, Richard Marsh and Shan F. Bullock. Rudyard Kipling in verse opens tho Feb ruary Issue of McCIure's Magazine, al though the editors did not receive the poem until after the magazine was on the press. The frontispiece was taken out, and the poem was printed In Its place. ' Kipling's short stories in McCIure's Maga zine have turned out to be tha most suc cessful fiction series that the publishers have ever secured. The January number is out of print, with nearly 15,000 unsupplied subscribers. The February edition or Mc CIure's Magazine is 70,000 copies larger than that of February of a year ago, . "Wessex Poems," the latest boofby the author of "Tess of the D'UrbervlUes," has created quite a furore among the English critics, whose reviews were published al most a month ago. They give Mr. Hardys first wooings of the muse unstinted nralse. but not because they consider Wessex Poems poetry of a high order. They are literary curiosities; they are technically faulty, the meter Is halting, and the phras ing awkward, , but the spirit Is there, nd many of the poems are intense with the deep, tragic sense of life, which i9 ex pressed so strongly In Mr. Hardy's novels. i i ' Tbe more striking features of the Feb ruary Critic are "Thackeray at Charter house," with original sketches by Thack eray and reproductions of his schoolboy manuscripts. No collector of Thackeray ana can afford to miss this number of the Critic. The frontispiece of this issue Is a medallion of Mr. W. D. Howells and his daughter. Miss Mildred Howells, the last work that Mr. Augustus St. Gaudens did before he sailed for France. .Both like nesses are admirable. Hhe February Critic would be worth preserving for this medal lion alone, but there are many more .Illus trations as well as special articles that give It a unique value. Books Received.

"Miss Clara Brett Martin, the only, woman attorney in Toronto, Canada, is a member of the collegiate Institute board of that city. Jackets of a heavy corded silk and a black glace are ono of the pretty fash ions. They are lined with fur, or flannel and chamois, to make them warm, and finished with a fancy vest of embroidered cream satin and lace. Cloths in pale tints are all the rage in Paris for afternoon gowns, and their spe cial title to be considered chic, lies in the simplicity of finish and outline, showing all the grace of figure a woman is fortu nate enough to possess. A pretty dinner gown for a youthful matron Is of black satin veiled in net, with sparkling green tequlns and insertions of white lace, with soft rouleaux of black and white tulle, harmonizing softly with twists of rose velvet on each shoulder and a rose-velvet eosh. Tucked taffeta waists are quite as popu lar as ever, and anything which can give them novelty is a welcome hint. One ot these in pale gray has a lace yoke over white, and at tho end of every tuck all around the neck a clock, such as is seen on hosiery, is embroidered in white silk. A baby doll's hamper, imitating the ham pers in use for real infants, is readily con structed out of an oblong fruit basket, holding about four or six quarts. Trays for it can be made out of box lids the right size by taking them apart and covering all the pieces with bright lining muslin, then with swiss. They are swung in place by ribbons. An oddly becoming hat worn by a golden haired woman at one of the recent dra matic breakfasts was of pervenche-blue felt, with a twist of sable and a twist of blue tulle, with blue wings, and under neath tho brim a bunch of hydrangeas, which softly shade from blue to purplish pink. The costume was of white and per-vencho-blue cloth. Fans of silk and paper with each stick topped by a big pansy, in the center ot which is the portrait of a war celebrity, are fluttered by the hero-worshiping maid in theaters ana ballrooms. Dewey, scniey, Merritt, Miles, Long and President McKin. ley are shown on some of the fans, while Hobson, Wainwright, Bagley and other youthful heroes adorn fans in demand among the younger patriots. The fashion of Inviting people to be god parents on account of their influence and position rather than from Intimacy with tha family, which was the old basis on which such things were put. Is distinctly on the increase. Foremost In this, as in all modern methods, the kaiser has recently declared his willingness to be godfather to every seventh son in Prussia. This Is de cidedly a large order, for the Germans have big families as a rule, and seven sons are by no means uncommon. Mile. Lucie Faure, the only daughter of President Faure, of France, whose engage ment to M, Georges Cliiris is announced, understands Latin, Greek and English, and has written a book of travels. The .family of her future husband has been for gener ations engaged in the perfumery business at Grasse. His father made a large fortuno in perfumery,, especially In the fabrication of the raw materials and essential oils which are sent from Grasse to all parts oi tne worm. A new fancy in sashes for the girlish figure is two broad bands ot the heaviest Russian lace or spangled ribbon edged with tiny muslin flounces, which in turn are edged with narrow dark velvet ribbon. Tho two broad bands are caught in at the shoulder seam, run down to meet at tho waist tine, and then flow out to the hem of the skirt. This is done usually at the back of the gown, and on evening and houso toilettes independently. The arrangement is just as effective applied in front if one is slim enough to stand it A good many smart cloth coats and wraps are being made now for people who will fly to warmer climes or take trips to Canada as 60on as Ash Wednesday puts a check on social gayetles. A traveling cloak of stone gray covert coating, seen at a smart tailor's, the other day, was orna mented with stitched strappings of tho cloth, and the new-shaped high collar and double-pointed revere was faced with vel vet. An ulster of tan box-cloth, lined with heliotrope brocade, had a short cape ot cloth, prettily strapped, and a square sail or collar of beaver velvet. Party frocks for girls aged from 11 to IB years are made In nun's veiling, either ruched or accordion pleated.' in plain satin, whether-white or 'delicately tinted in yel low, pink or turquoise, and trimmed with chiffon, lace and bows of ribbons, surah with sun-ray pleatlngs, silk muslin with lace and embroideries and folds of satin rolled into smallness, moire velours, bor dered with a shaped flounce of chiffon hemmed with pompon roses, or beautiful brocades In floral designs, such as jessa. mine, marguerite, poppy, honeysuckle or roses. r The lace coat, which is so becoming when worn by the right sort of woman, though still in high favor, has been succeeded by the jet coat. These are not to be had for a song, but they are very smart, indeed, when worn with a frock of black satin, and very Frenchy and effective with orange, old rose or white satin skirts. The jet coat as a garment is verv lonir. and nlmnstt invariably finished off by a deep flounce like frill of lace or accordion-pleated chif fon. Perhaps It is seen at Its best with a lace gown, since, when worn with one of satin, though smart, it is rather ma tronly looking. New York Commercial Advertiser: A curious school (and Incidentally a new pro fession for women) was organized a short time ago In St. Petersburg. It Is to be de voted to the training of women students for secret service in the seraglios of the Orient. It Is prophesied that other nations than Russia having Interests in Asia ana Northern Africa will soon found similar schools. Tho existence ot this unique temple ot learning Is an admission ot the power of the harem In politics. Oriental gentlemen do not speak of their wives and do not invite their friends to dine with their veiled and bespangled helpmeets. They avow a profound contempt for wom en In general, and for women's mental powers. Birds -with elegant. long-Fhaped wings (their species Is dubious and probably known onlyto millinery ornithologists) form one of a pair of so-lcalled Meeves on tho newest evening gowns. The sleeveless fashion has been overdone by many fad dish women, and the results are not be coming. Now and then It is pretty to see a garland of giant roses or great ropes of violets play the part of sleeve on one arm. while tho other is provided with a scarf of chiffon. But too little discrimination is ex ercised, and when tho wearer's neck anil arms are not unimpeachable, and the ma terials which compose the frock fresh and new, the oddity of the new s-houlder straps nnd arm adornments degenerates into un becoming eccentricity. Fencing Is again the fad among New York girls this winter, and many of them prefer it to Indoor skating on artificial Ice or any other indoor exercise. Several new classes have been formed, and under the care of skilled fencing masters the girls are learning- to be experts In the art, nnd seem to delight in it. They wear bright colored jerseys nnd short cloth skirt, knee length, over bloomers, low can vas shoes and thick stockings. They meet once a week, generally in the morning, from 11 o'clock until noon, and now pome ot them are talking of getting up a tourna ment between the different clubs. Of all the sporting fads, fencing Is the best, from the point of view of systematic exercise, and has the distinct advantage of being a sport, as enjoyable as it is health giving. Philadelnhla Ledger: The passion for talking is frequently annoying In Its man ifestations, but rarely Is It that those who suffer from the infliction have tho courage to rebuke the offenders. Delicacy may be tbe reason for silent endurance, but it is to be feared that a desire to escape un pleasant consequences In tho way of sharp retort or a taking of offense is at the bot tom of the passive suffering of talk mar tyrdom. Public speakers, especially thoe whose means of livelihood are affected bv the approval of the public are placed in an embarrassing position by the ill breeding of auditors who attend lectures or musical performances for the apparent purpose of conversing about, their personal affairs. A rebuke from the platform Is always an "embarrassing procedure, but if public en tertainers generally would Imitate the ex ample, of a certain lecturer who lately still ed two chattering women, tho talker nuis anco would suffer considerable abitement. The lecturer In question was presenting an interesting and well illustrated lecture on Hawaii, to hear which a good sized audience had come at peril of limb in a storm which made street and walk sheets of ice. The lecture was two-thirds de livered when the lecturer stopped sudden ly, and, looking at two ill bred women near the platform, said, in effect:. I re quest that you stop talking. I shall soon have finished, when you can resume your conversation. I have looked at you sev eral times during the lecture, but as you have disregarded these hints, I have no choice but to take this present course." A round of hearty applause rewarded the lec turer for thus coercing the underbred into decency ot behavior.
