BROWNING'S NEW POEMS.
A Book That Will Give the Namer
ae *"Clubs" a Flne Opportunity
for Profound Study.
S''"Hence, get ye homeward, ye great
and renowned ones. night's children
unchilded, with kindly attendance"
so. in English. run the words wherein
.Esehylus takes farewell of the Eumen
ides. Mr. Browning' Fates-Clotho.
Lechesis, and Atropo-h-:d us good-by
in his new poem thus:
Atropos: la, ha, ha!
It is true that words of Apolk's in
terrupt these laconic greetings, and yet,
looking at the printed page, one feels
inclined to ask. Is this poetry, or an
extract from some classical extravan
at at the Savoy theater? Romanticism
is indeed triumphant. l'errault and
Hugo have triumphed over Boilean,
and Aristoile, and £Aschylus, when a
justly famous English poet can take
those liberties with the Fates. Even in
the days of Theophile, of the flamboy
nuit waistcoat, it may be doubted
whether the wildest of the generation
would have made Clotho, Lachesis,
and Atropos drink the wine of mortals
till they said "bah", "tra-la-la," and
*Ha, ha. ha" to a god." "Say boo to
you. pooh-pooh to you is within meas
urable distance of this familiarity. Mr.
Blrowning's new volume, in which
these and other singularities occur. is
styled "Parleving with certain people."
It is a return, and we think a more for
tunate return, to the form of art in
which Mr. Browning wrought his best,
his immortal poems, the poemsof "Men
and Women," and "Bramatis. Per
eons'." The prologue between Apollo
and the Fates is headed with referen
ces to texts i'. the Homeric hymn to
Hermes, in the "Eumenides." and in
"Aleestis." Apollo held a dialogue on
the value of mortal life, and especialil v
on the life of Admetus, for whom Al
'estis died with the Fates. The ideas
of the poem are interesting, and cast
their light on the foundations of
things. It is too late to presume to
argue with Mr. Browning on his meth
ods. Lord Tennyson in youth altered
many of his poetic ways, as age brought
the philosophic,mind. and the philo
sophfu mind, as it chanced, rejecied
most of the things which criticism had
censured. But Mr. Browning has ever
taken his own war. The classical taste
of the mere perruque (with which we
confess a sympathy) might deferen
tially demur to a speech like this.
which Mr. Browning assigns to Lache

plained the phenomena of night.
itrage stars rayed out darkness. Par
aeelsns dreamed.-here be the similar
~omstellations (or a few of them) that
make Mr. Browing's poetry obscure to
the multitude. First come odd words:
"Shun an unusual word like a hidden
reef" is said to have been the maxim of
no less a critic than Caius Julius Caesar.
Now. "purpled." in the first line, is a
very unusual word. Speaking from
memory alone we remember no more
familliar use of it than that of Malory
In the "Mort d'Arthur." "King Ryahce
would purple his mantle with twelve
kings' beads." One can fancy the well
meaning student of poetry looking out
"purple" in his English dictionary, and
practice of that sort is chilling work.
"Weal-prankt" is not so difficult.
Doubtless the poet uses these archa
isms and these clashing consonants
purposely. to indicate the archaic char
satet of the venerable Fates and the
harshnemss of their dispositions. In the
same stansa the words "'lead lock the
due length" entirely baffle us. We
have tried "lead" and "look" both as
substantiveis and verbs, but unless they
are employed in some technical sense
we fail to get any meaningout of them.
This may be mere dullness of appre
bension, but other English poets yield
up their teasures of their sense more
easily. The next stanza, intelligible
enough, cases, like most of Chap
man 's poetr and a good deal of Keats'

A Ioston dispatch say-: Surgeons
at the Massachusetts General hospital
Saturday undertook a bold operation in
a desperate case of cancer. A shoe
maker living in Weymouthl is afflicted
with cancer of the stomiach. The only
chance of saving his life was to resort
to the most radical surgical measures.
At the hospital Saturi:iy the sufferer
was first etherized. and llthen Dr. War
ren made a large opening in the abdo
" The stomach was exposed and lifted
out for examinati:m,. It was found that
the cancer affected a large part of one
side of the wall. T''o remove the can
cer at once was impossible, for it would
have taken away a large portion of the
stomach itself, and it would have been
impossible to close the gap so that tihe
contents could not escape. Accordins
ly the surgeon sewed a seam direciy
across thie stomach, separating th,
healthy from the diseased part, and
making two saxcks or bags insteadl of
one. The stomnach was then replaced
and the alxionlmen, temporarily closed.
In a few days. when the seam has
grown into a natlral wall of separation.
the abdomen will again be opened and
the diseased part cuit oflf. The patient
bore the operation without any appar
ent bad effects. and the operation in the
end is expected to be fully successful
and the cure radical.-Ezchungc.

It is the samne with the blood. As it

er every part of the system in its healthy
rush, seeking an oaportunity to discharge v
the waste anild p)oisnoutti matterfromevery t
mart of the system, into thenaturalsewers. '1
This sewage matter is carried by the blood w
to the kidneys, there to be thrown off the a
same as in life the scavenger would throw t
his sewage into the stream to rid himself of li
the vile substance. 1
And the blood has no other place but the I
kidneys in which to throw off its waste ,I
matter. 4ontetince it finds the kidneys I
unprepared to do this work. But the s
heart takes up the blood and again passes d
it through the systemn, where once more it

the sewers if of our cities gather up such poi
sonous matter, to be discharged at one
grand point, and then lie carried off.
Fancy the dange- of such poisoned blood I

This process continues, the blood passing
