experience with Herman Whltaker's
fine story, "The Settler," which was
concluded some months ago, taught
us that no feature of a magazine Is
more widely appreciated and eagerly
sought than a strong serial. Ever
since this, we have been trying to get
another strong novel. Some people
have an Impression that the literary
woods arc full of unknown geniuses
who can write great stories, but that
no opportunity exists for such, as the
authors with the "great names mo-
noDOlIze the field. Thousands of
writers Imagine that, if only they had
a chance. Fame would be theirs, too.
But it seems to be the concurrence of
publishing experience that a good
thing Is rare. If you want to be sure
of securing a masterly work, you must
apply to those who have established
their right to be called masters.
In our search for a great novel, we
have been impressed by the fact that
every other publisher Is seeking the
same thing; the work of every mas
terly author Is eagerly snapped up.
We wrote to every author of note
In America, setting forth our want,
and offering any price for the right
thing. We found every one of them
willing enough, but the work of each
had been spoken for for at least a
year ahead.
London, who has already contrib
uted several short stories to The Pa
cific Monthly, we scarcely hoped to
reach, and did not communicate with
him, as he was out of the country,
until we accidentally learned that he
had Just completed, and was Bending
from somewhere In the South Seas,
the manuscript of his latest novel. An
urgent telegram and letter to his
agent, Mrs. Nlnetta Karnes, offering
a good round sum for the mere priv
ilege of reading the manuscript, and
for an option upon It for 10 days,
brought a prompt and favorable re
ply. The manuscript came, beautiful
ly typewritten, 142,000 words in
length. "Mr. London says you may.
give it for title, either 'Success' or
'Martin Eden,' " wrote Mrs. Eames,
"and as for Its character. Judge for
Mr. London himself Is too modest to
express himself beyond the following
brief remark In a letter:
"I do not know what you will think
of this novel; I do not know what to
think of it myself. But at any rate
you will find It entirely different from
anything else I have done."
It Is quite different from anything
else Mr. London has ever done. It Is
neither surcharged with the author's
tendency to soclologic discussion, nor
with -many of the peculiarities of
manner and form found In all his oth
er work. It establishes the author's
reputation for versatility, and will
without question take rank among the
great novels of recent years.
"You must have that novel," said
Charles Ersklne Scott Wood, after he
had finished reading the manuscript;
"It Is a good story."
But we had already telegraphed our
acceptance. While Mr. London's
price, 17000, seemed a bit heavy for
a young western magazine, we were,
of course aware that we were getting
the first-comer's bargain; especially
after receiving a telegram from a
000 for our option. Maybe we are a
000 for our option. Maybe we ae a
bit garrulous in gossiping thus, but
really, we may be pardoned Jubilance
over our new possession.
Something further as to the story?
Mrs. Eames, who knows Mr. London
like a mother, says that he has woven
into Martin Eden a thinly disguised
picture of his own early struggles for
success in literature. Somehow there
Is a suggestion of Les MIserables
Jean Valjean though of course with
an entirely dissimilar motive. Writes
a critical friend whom we asked to
read the manuscript:
"Once In a generation there strug
gles to the light a soul nurtured In
darkness, but born to power Irresist
ible. Martin Eden Is the portrayal
of- such a soul striving, toiling, fight
ing for, and, in the end, winning
knowledge from Ignorance, culture
from degradation, and eminence from
obscurity. Through all, his guiding
star is a woman In the higher sphere
to which he at last attains; but the
mainstay of his success Is the majes
ty of his strength, the tenacity of his
courage, and the sublimity of his pur

Consul A. G. Seyfert, of Colllng-
wood, reports that the culture of figs
has proved successful In the Canadian
province of Ontario. He says:
The Niagara peninsula, that par.t
of Ontario west of the .Niagara river
to the western end of Lake Ontario,
Is well known as one of the finest
fruit-growing sections In the province
If not in Canada, but It may surprise
many to learn that fig culture has
been successfully conducted near Ni
agara on the lake for the last 40
years. The climate of this section
of the peninsula appears peculiarly
suited for the culture of figs. The
open waters of Lake Ontario and the
Niagara river modify the tempera
ture greatly, and the usually com
paratively mild winter, as compared
with the same latitude elsewhere,
followed by a backward spring caus
ed by the ice coming down the river
from the upper lake and the dry
and warm summer, produce an Ideal
climate for all kinds of fruit, espe
cially figs.
The fig is a native of subtropical
countries, and Is almost unknown In
central North America In Its fresh
state. The theory is that figs will suc
ceed In any country where peaches
and apricots do well without protec
tion, If the fig plant receives proper
winter protection. The fig growers
of the Niagara district protect their
plants In the following manner during
the winter:
As soon as the leaves have fallen
and shnrp frosts set In, two or three
of the branches are bent to the
ground In their natural direction and
tied loosely with strips of cotton or
other soft material and held In place
by crotched pegs, care being taken
not to injure the bark. When all
branches are down the whole Is cov
ered with a mound of earth three to
four feet In depth. In the writer's ex
perience fine sand ' is preferable to
earth, as it keeps away mice and cut
worms, which are injurious to the
young wood.
In the spring when danger from
severe frost Is over, air Is let Into the
mound by holes made with a small
pole or the handle of a rake, and
during the following 10 days the
earth Is removed In Installments.
Care must be taken that the bark
is not Injured In the process. When
the bush is fully exposed It Is gen
erally found that bearing wood is cov
ered with small fruit, about the size
of a large pea, while the buds show,
but are not open. Varieties that have
proved most successful at Niagara are
the White and Purple Ischlas, the
Brown Turkey, and White Genoa.
