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.

"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.
