MEN WOMEN AND BOOKS.
EDITED IN TUB INTEREST OF TQB CAIHO
The library of the lato Mr. George Bor
row, once described by a reviewer as the
most polyglot traveler who ever left the
shores of England, ia about to be offered
for public sale in London. Tho lexicons
alone amount to over a hundred, and the
library represents nearly every languago
from Manschu and Sanscrit to Spanish and
Portuguese. It is espcially rich in works
about the Northern mythology. One of
tho works has tho rare distinction of having
been taken out of tho Inquisition at Seville.
"Hector" is a good story, for young peo
ple, by the author of "Castlo Blair," a very
charming novel which had the rare merit
of being praised by RuskiB.
"Eight Hundred Leagues on tho Amazon"
is another of Verne's faseiuaticg h t some
what unreliable sic.ioa of travel. Thi0 vol-
"mo is devoted to an account of tho travels
of a party on a giant raft down tho Amazon,
and is aa handsomely gotten up as its pre
decessors. The account of Raleigh's exploits and
voyages during tho reign of Queen Eliza
beth has been put into readable shapo for
young people by Mr. Gcorgo Makepeace
Towle. The story of the life of tho wit
tiest and one of tho most scholarly men of
the English Court is both brilliant and
pathetic. Mr. Towle has told it admirably
and in a manner that carraot fail to intercut
those for whom ho writes.
"Around the Hub" is the titlo of a boy's
book about Boston by Sumuel Adams
Drake. It is in fact a sort of condensed ac
count of our Puritan Fathers ami of tho
early colonial days tersely described, and
and with all the charm of tho diction for
which this author is noted. Ho takes his
young readers around and through the city
which believes itself to bo the capital of
the universe, pointing outplaces of interest
and furnishing complete historical details.
Victor Hugo is reported as having said to
a friend only a few weeks ago: "I havo
more to do than I have done. It might bo
thought that age weakens tho intellect; my
intellect, on tho contrary, Becms to grow
stronger, and does not rest. It Beems to me
that us I advance my horizon grows wider;
and so I shall pass away without having
hnished my task. I Bhould require several
lives still to write all that my mind con
ceives; I shall never finish. I am resigned
on that point."
The Critic says that "Mrs. Mayburn's
Twins," by tho author of "Hclon's Babies,"
is not a new book, as ostensibly announced
by the Petersons, but was written years
ago, "long before Mr. Habberton had mas
tered tho art of popular story telling. Only
its name is new."
A worthy successor to "Timothy Titcomb"
has arisen in England to tell the young of
the bourgeois of tho dangers ot "gadding
about," and to inform them how they should
"chooso partners for life" and how many
shirts a week they should wear. The new
moralist is Mr. Samuel Pearson, and his
book is called "Week-day Living."
Mr. Bancroft, the veteran historian, has
almost finished the last volume of his histo
ry. Tho Critic says : "Mr. Bancroft writes
that the printers can work aa fast as they
please, and he will keop pace with them."
"Tho Knockabout Club in the Woods" is
tho titio of a book of anecdote and adven
ture in the wilds of Maine and Canada by G
young menoff on a vacation tour. The story
is interesting and the incidents stirring, but
tho illustrations are poorly executed.
"What Must We Teach Our Boys!" is the
titlo of an excellent articlo by Prof. Swiug
in tho Weekly Magazine for May 13th. He
says: "Education should developo an
anxiety to become tho best possible man or
woman in any pursuit. School books
should, therefore, bo largely iuspiratioual
books that will mako up a large amount of
honorable ambition and create largo CBti
ui'ites of life.
Tho time in our public schools should
not bo consumed upon writing aud figures,
but much attention should be givon to
biography, for it is tho record of human
gicttness and to literaturo bocauso it is the
best thought of those who oro greatest.
Tho attraction of "dime novels" arises in
part from tho fact that it always contaius
tho adventures of persons, and has thus the
fascinations of a drama. It is notorious
that the varied phenomena of living men
are more interesting than quostions in
grammar and arithmetic. Tho word
"drama" implies a group of living, moving
persons. Akin to tho stago itself in inter
est uro the books of biography and history.
If tho misorablo performances recorded in
tho sensational stories often make bad boys,
the fact only shows that power lies in tho
study of humor conduct, and confirms the
aphorism that tbo young are influenced by
nothing so much as by example. If sen
sational or criminal biographios make bad
boys, the rule should have its converse and
tho study of lotty actor in society should
help kindle noble aspirations in the boys,
and girls at school. , To deeply acquainted
ihould our young folks bo with the lives of
great and useful porsona that they Bhould.
be tempted at all times to compare thoir
own conduct to that thus seen in their text
books. With plenty of history
and biography to inform and awaken, and
literature ami art to inspire, and geometry
to guide the reason, the school boy or girl of
our land ought to be equipped for making
a good beginning in lifo ; in its broadest
Beer Not Intoxicating,
I hav finally romo to tho conclusion
that luger beer as a boventgo is uot ia
toxicatiug. I hav boon told go by a German who
drank It nil nito long, just to try tho ex
periment, and was obliged to go homo
sober in tho morning. I have sooa this
same man drink l4 glasses," and if ho was
dnnik it was in German, and nobody
could understand it.
It is proper ennff to stato that this
man kept a lager beer saloon, aud could
have no object in stating what was not "
strictly thus. ,
I beliovod him to tho full extent of my
ability. I never drank but threo glasses
oflagor in my lif.', and that made my
hoad untwist oa tho it was hun; on tho
end of a string, but I was told it was
owing to uiy bile being out of place;
and I thot it was so, I never bllod over
wus than I did when I got home that
nite. My wifo thot I was goin1 to dio,
and I was afraid I shouldn't, for itseera
ed as tho every thing I had over eaten
'n my lifo wan coming to the surface;
and I believe that if my wifo hadn't
pulled off my boots just as sho did
they would hav cum thundering up,
O, how siek I wuz! Fourteen years
ago, and I can tasto it now! .
I never had so much experience in so
short a time.
If any man shud tell mo that lager
beer was not intoxicating, 1 shud believo
him, but if ho shud tell mo that I wasn't
drunk that nito, and that my stummiek
was out of order, J should ask him to
stato in a few words just how a man folt
and acted when ho was set up.
If I warn't drunk that nito, I had some .
of tho most natural simptums that a.
man ever had aud kept sober.
In tho first placo, it was about eighty
rods from the placo whero I drank tho
lager beer to mi house, and I was just
two hours on tho road, and a hole bust
ed through each ono of niv pantaloon
ueez, and I didn't havo any hat, and.
tried to open tho door by tho bell-pull,"
and hiccoughed awfully, and saw every
thing in tho room trying to get roundon
the back side of mo, and, sitting down
on a chair. I did not wait long onough
for it to get exactly under me when I
wuz going round, and I got down alittlo
too soon, and missed tho chair by about
twelve inches, and couldn't get up soon
enough to take tho next ono that camo
along; and that ain't awl; my wifo said
I wuz rh drunk as a beast, and as I
said before, I began to spin up things
If lager beer is not intoxicating, It
used mo mont almighty mean, that I
Still I hardly think that lager boor is
intoxicating, for I havo boon told so; and
I am probably tho only man who over
drunk t-ny when his liver was not plumb.'
I don't want to say anything iigainst
n harmless temperaneo beverage, but if
ever I drink eny moro it will bo with mi
hands tied behind and mi mouth pried
I don't think lagor boor is intoxicat
ing, but if I remember rite, I thiuk it
tasted to mo liko a glass of soap-suds
that a pieklo has beeii put tow soak in.
. Hauting Trees,
You can have no idea of tho exquisito
delight of a planter; ho is like a painter
laying on his colors; at every moment
lie sees his ofi'irls coming out. Thero
is no art or occupation comparable to
this; it is full of past, ircseiit and futuro
enjoymont. I look back to tho timo
when thero was not a tree hero (Abbots
ford) only bare heath; I look around
and see thousands of trees growing up,
alrof which, 1 may say almost each of
whieli, have received my personal at
tention. I remember live years ago
looking forward with tho most delight
ful expectation to this very hour; and,
as oath year has passed, tho expectation
has gone on increasing. I do tho samo
now;' I anticipate what this plantation
mid that ono will presently bo, if only
taken care of, and there is not a spot o.f ,
which I do not watch tho progress. Un
like building, or even painting, ur, in
deed, any other kind of pursuit, this has
no cud, ami is never Interrupted, but
goes on irom uay to nay, aim irora year
to year, with a perpetually augmontin
interest. Farming I hato; what havol
to do with fattening and killing beasts, '
or raising corn ouly to cut it down, aad
to bo constantly at tho mercy of tho
