LITERARY NOTES
Savoyard’s Essays. New York: The
Neale Publishing Company. Broad
way. Fifth avenue and Twenty-third
street. Buckram cloth; price, $2.
It is taking no risk whatever to say
that this will prove one of the nota
ble, solid books of the year. “Savo
yard" is the pen name of Eugene
Newman, who has been for upwards
of forty years the Washington corre
spondent of the Louisville Courier-
Journal and other high-class jour
uals. During this considerable pe
riod of time Mr. Newman has come
into close contact with many of the
men who have had to do with the
making of the country’s contemporary
history. A close student of human
nature, he has given his earnest at
tention to the more picturesque fig
ures in American politics and set down
unbiased character studies of them for
the delectation of their contempora
ries and the information of posterity.
There survive to-day, of course,
many men who were personally ac
quainted with Roscoe Conkling, “Mat”
Carpenter, John J. Ingalls, “Mark”
Hanna, "Tom” Reed and the ever
delightful Senator Hoar, who are
among the number celebrated by
"Savoyard” in his "Essays.” Others
in the goodly company are Samuel J.
TUden, Benjamin H. Hill, Thaddeus
Stevens, Andrew Johnson, L. Q. C.
Lamar, Stephen A. Douglas, the Field
family, S. S. Prentiss and Frank
Wolford. Generally speaking this
volume of “Savoyard” is one of ap
preciation. It deals with big men to
whom he could give an unstinted mead
of praise, tempered always, of course,
| by a close adherence to verity. There
is no fulsome adulation anywhere, but
| merely an adherence to a just esti
mate of character, all circumstances
considered. Had these "essays” by
"Savoyard” been 'written three-quar
ters of a century ago, they would

The Hon. Andrew D. White, president of Cornell University 1867-1885,
minister to Germany 1892-1894, ambassador to Germany 1897-1902, is writing
for the Century reminiscences of his diplomatic life. In the December Cen
tury, ilr. White tells, among other matters of interest, of Emperor Wil
liam’s opinion of the destruction of the Maine, of Ambassador White's
personal relations with the Spanish ambassador and his difficulties dur
ing the Spanish-American War, and of Germany's attitude toward America
at this critical time.

set a higher standard now. The his
tory of a country during any specific
period is the history of its leading
Public men during that period. Mr.
Newman has given us in his ’‘essays’*
a close personal insight into the char
acters of some of the foremost men of
the last forty years; for which we de
serve to make our grateful acknowl

Teddy and Towser. By Seward D.
Lisle. Philadelphia: Henry T.
Coates & Cos. Cloth; illustrated;
price, sl.
This is a story of the early days of
California. It is especially suited to
boys, though it will be read with in
terest by both young and old of both
sexos. The chief characters are a
healthy, vigorous boy and an intelli
gent dog, who have some thrilling ad
ventures together. But there are a
lot of other incidental and
they are all interesting.
Completed Proverbs. By Lisle de
Vaux. Matthewman; pictured by
Clare Victor Dwiggins. Philadel

80 cents; by mail, 88 cents.
This is one of the very cleverest of
the pretty litle books of satire prepared
for the holiday season. It consists of
“one hundred Iridescent globules, like
a bunch of soap bubbles,” with as
many illustrations. Every proverb is
pungent, and every picture is like a
pinch of spice. It is not a book for
dull people. It should be sent as a
holiday present only to those who have
nimble wit.
Up the Forked River. By Seward D.
Lisle. Philadelphia; Henry T.

South America may seem prosaic
enough to the people who live there,
but to us of the northern part of the
continent it is hedged about with a
glamor of romance that is enchant
ing. Any heroic story having Its scene
of action laid in South America is
practically sure of an appreciative au
dience; and if it.'be a “cracking good”
story, the number of admirers will be
large and profitable. The book under
consideration is one that will appeal
strongly to healthy boys—and to their
elders also, if they have not lost the
love of the woods and its denizens that
is born In them. There is a pretty
love story in the book, too; but love
stories are so common! We like the

Marriage, Limited. By Frank H.
Wakefield. New York: The Neale
Publishing Company. Cloth; price,
$1.50.
A celebrated English novelist recent
ly advocated limited marriage as a
possible solution of the divorce prob
lem. The suggestion started a flood
tide of discussion. This book must
have been written in advance of the
Englishmen’s published proposition, yet
it deals with the idea that he had in
mind—marriage for a limited period of
time. The manner in which Mr. Wake
field handles his subject Is at once
amusing and serious. The story is
both a novel and a sociological study.
It pleases the fancy and instructs the
mind. At the end of it the reader
hardly knows whether he has been to
school or to the play; but he is pleased
to have gone. It is possible that this
is one of the novels that will set the

WHY WOMEN HAVE PAINS
A Few Facts That Every Woman
Should Know About ller Inter
nal Arrangements.
SCIENCE AND SENSE
You Are Laying Vp for Yourself
Long Years of Suffering and Mel
ancholy Regrets by Neglecting
Y'our Pains To-day.
Interesting Information Regarding a
Simple Way of Restoring Health
to Ail Sick Women.
Wonderful Results Recorded.
(Special to the Morning News.)
New York, Dec. 3.—lt is a bold man
who will venture to break away from
all the traditions of the medical pro
fession, and give the public a few plain
facts In language that they can un
derstand.
Yet that is what I am going to do.
What I have to say will be addressed
to all women—young women, wives,
mothers, grandmothers.
But men who have women folks,
whose health may depend on their
care or advice, will also And these
feets of value.
I want you, my friend, to bear in
mind one thing:
No woman should ever consent to
suffer pain.
Life is hard enough, in its worries
and fears, without the additional tor
ture of pain.
Some people say Pain is a symp
tom.
But I say it is a disease.
It is a quivering of the nerves, which
can be set at rest by the proper medi
cine.
Understand me; I am not advocating
the use of a Pain Reliever—but a
Pain Cure.
Wine of Cardui is a cure for wom
en's pains.
It is the only one.
If you try it. you will see.
You know something about the
nerves.
One of their main functions is to act
upon the blood vessels, and to so
act upon them as to insure that the
tissues are properly fed, the waste and
repair of the body properly balanced,
perfect health properly maintained.
Wherever there is a blood vessel
there is also a tiny nerve, like a pa
trolman, policing his beat and keeping
traffic open.
Every now and then—if something is
wrong—he calls up central and re
ports.
You feel the bell ring.
It sounds to you like—a Pain.
Meantime there is great activity
throughout your body, one-tenth of
which you hardly feel.
The desk sergeant In your head fills
up a patrol wagon with white blood
cells—disease quellers—and down they
rush tq the seat of trouble.
Oh, there are a thousand Intricate
little things done, that it would take
a book to tell, and which all mean one
thing.
Your natural life forces are trying
to get rid of the trouble.
When they are too weak to do this,
the Pain continues, gets worse maybe,
lasts, perhaps, off and on, all your
life.
What to do?
Take Wine of Cardui.
It is a reinforcement of your nat
ural forces.
That’s all.
Yes; but it's enough.
Wine of Cardui is a cure for Wom
en’s Pains, because it is a medicine
which acts upon the special nerve cen
ters, which, in a woman, by reason of
her special womanly functions, are
most often in a weakened and untonic
condition.
For this reason it is a woman's med
icine.
Because it is a woman's medicine. It
act? upon every woman with an al
most marvelous, tonic, strengthening,
recuperative effect.
It relieves—cures—women’s pains.
It regulates women’s forces and
functions.
It banishes women’s nervous irrita
bility.
• It brings back women’s smiles, roses,
blushes, complexion, strength.
It aids mothers to stand mother
hood's trials.
It helps housewives to find work a
pleasure.
It assists girls and young women to
study, grow and enjoy life, as never
before.
In fact, in every condition, age, or
state of life, women will find, in Wine
of Cardui, a safe, pleasant and strictly
scientific aid to health and happiness.

Cromwell of Virginia. By Edward S.
Ellis. Philadelphia: Henry T. Coates
& Cos. Cloth; price, sl.
This Is one of the Coates Colonial
series. It tells the story of Bacon's
rebellion, of which every school child
knows something, in a manner that is
both entertaining and enlightening.
Generally speaking, the school histories
do not shed much light on this so
called rebellion. This story goes into
the details of It in a way that leaves
both young and older regders with a
clearer understanding of the history
of the country and a higher apprecia
tion of the struggles of the colonists.

(Elder & Cos., Bnn Francisco.)
Frederick Palmer, the American war
correspondent, has beaten all of the
English correspondents In the rare to
be first In the field with a book on
the Ruaso-Japanese Wat, written from
personal observation. Ths first edition
of his "With Kurokl In Manchuria"
was put on the market on Tuesday,
and was practically sold out In two
and another edition will be ready
before this item can get Into print.
This business of being first In the field
with a wsr book counts for much, for
by the time the third or fourth au'hor
arrives Interest In the subject Is about
worn out. A publisher said Ihe other
day that he believed practically all of
the score of books on Ihe Boer War,
except the first three or four, loiit
money. Palmer has a knack of being
first In the field, however. It waa he
who got a beat on the decisive battle

American readers may be interested
In hearing the names of the six “best
selling” novels in this country at pres
ent. Since this list was drawn up a
day or two ago. Hall Caine's new ro
mance has appeared, and probably
leads in point of sales at the present
moment. Previous to its appearance,
however, the six best sellers were as
follows: “God’s Good Man." by Sir
Gilbert Parker; “John Chilcote, M. P.,”
by K. C. Thurston; “Kate of Kate
Hall," by Ellen T. Fowler; "Double
Harness,” by Anthony Hope, and
"Traffics and Discoveries." by Rudyard
Kipling.
It Is probable that no man ever loved
work better than did Mr. Gladstone.
Sir John Robinson recalls the fact
that late In life the ex-Premier had
some affection of one eye, and he was
recommended not to try his sight by
writing at too great length. "Such
was his passion for work, however,
that he accustomed himself to write
with his eyes shut to obviate the dan
ger. An intimate friend once remon
strated with him on seeing him writ
ing. ‘lt is very wrong of you,’ he said,
‘to sit, write, write, writing at that
table when you have the use of only
one of your eyes.’ ’No,’ said the won
derful old man. ‘I don’t need that eye
at all when I am at this'*kind of work.
I have been writing mechanically with
out using either eye for the last hour.’
It was in this way that he wrote the
whole of his essay on ’Heresy and
Schism’ that appeared in the Nine
teenth Century for August, 1904.”
—The death in New York the other
day of Gen. Louis Pauma di Cesnola,
the director of the Metropolitan Mu
seum of Art, removes a man who is
now acknowledged to have been the
greatest curator in this country. He
was a native of Piedmont, Italy, and
a member of one of the oldest and best
Italian families. His private archaeo
logical collection, formed during a ten
years' residence in the Island of Cy
prus, was the nucleus of the Metropoli
tan Museum. Napoleon 111 had en
deavored to buy It for the Louvre, and
Lord Beaconsfleld made Gen. Cesnola
an offer for it on behalf of the British
Museum. The owner declined, and
eventually sold It to the Metropolitan
Museuih for about 599.000. Gen. Ces
nola's volume, "Cyprus; Its Ancient
Cities, Tombs and Temples" (Har
pers) was a narrative of his researches
and excavations, and was said at the
time to have "laid the world of edu
cated and thoughtful men under heavy
obligations.”
The manuscript of Rudyard Kipling's
“Captains Courageous” is owned by
Mrs. James Conland, of Hartford,
Conn. Mr. Kipling gave it to her late
husband, from whom the author ob
tained much material for the book.
Prof. Goldwin Smith's recent speech
before the Canadian Club at Ottawa Is
said to be his farewell uppearanee on
the platform. His work as a publicist
will be confined to his weekly comment
on current things in a Toronto news
paper and to occasional writings in
other papers and in magazines.
It is rather interesting to recall that
the success o| “Ben-ilur," the author
of which (Gen. Lew Wallace! has been
so critically ill at his Indiana home,
has been o’n lines altogether unique.
It has never been issued in a cheap
form, and no less than fourteen lux
urious editions have been made by the
Harpers, yet it is estimated that well
on to a million copies have been sold.
Capt. Robert E. Lee, whose tactful
book about his father, the great Con
federate general, has had such a de
served success, lives on a farm at
West Point, Va. He is the youngest
son of Gen. Lee, and was attending
the University of Virginia when the
Civil War broke out. His father op
posed his going Into the service too
young, but he insisted upon enlisting
as a private in the Rockbridge Ar
tillery, and rose to the captaincy. He
has been a farmer since the close of
the war. He lives quietly, preferring
the peace of the country to the noise
of the cities.
Frank L. Stanton, author of "Lit
tle Folks Down South,” has a keen
sense of humor. He has many good
stories of the South stored up in his
memory, an dmost of them are short
and to the point. One of the best and
most epigrammatic concerns a Ken
tucky colonel who was just dressing
In the morning in his bachelor home In
Louisville. “Sambo,” he called down
stairs to his henchman, "go out and
mow some mint for breakfast.”
Thomas E. Watson showed that he
had a serious disposition at a very
early age. When he was about 6 years
old he startled the old negro mammy
who had nursed him from chllhood by
asking suddenly: "At what age do
children begin to be responsible for
tehir sins? As I responsible?"
"Laws, no, honey," replied his black
foster-mother. ‘‘Yo’ ain’t done ’rive to
yeahs of 'scretlon yet."
The Infant Watson heaved a sigh of
relief and did not pursue his psyehol
ogico-ethleal course of questioning
any further. But when he appeared
an hour later with his hat full of fresh
ly plucked turkey feathers he wore a
look of conscious rectitude mingled
with a dashing air of total lack of
moral responsibility.
Ralph Henry Barbour Is the author
of many Juvenile books. His latest Is
entitled "On Your Mark: A Story of
College Life and Athletics.” When
the brand-new volume reached his
house and was added to the row of his
works on top of his desk his niece
came toddling In to look at it. After
Inspecting It gravely for a moment
the little girl said: “Uncle, did you
write that?”
"Yes, dear.”
“And all the rest of those?”
"Yes.”
“Well, did all these things happen
to you.”
“No; I’ve dreamed and thought a
great many of them.”
"But, uncle," said the little maiden
solemnly, “do you think you ought to
write them?”

FATE OF FAMOUS
MOORISH PALACE
PASSING OF THE ALHAMBRA.
THE HISTORIC STRICTURE CRI'M
BLINO TO PIECES.
The Great Palace of Mohammed,
Left Intact by the Moors When
They Were Ilriven Out of Granada
More Than Four Centuries Ago,
Likely to Meet the l'n.te of the
Cuniimnlle at Venice— Spain Has
no Millionaires to Restore It and
an American Multi-Millionaire
Has Yet Bought It for a Country
ltcNilt k nc?e.
Grenada, Dec. 3. —It was no mere
alarmist report which was sent out
from this country regarding the con
dition of the world-famous Alhambra.
The cracks which have appeared tn the
walls are serious, and tt will not be
surprising if the historic building is
overtaken by the same fate which be
fell the Campanile at Venice. It might
easily be saved by prompt action on
the part of the Spanish government,
but there is little hope that such ac
tion will be taken. Officialdom, for
years, has neglected the Alhambra in
a fashion which would have outraged
Washington Irving, and the present
condition of tho wonderful monument
of Moorish elegance and grandeur Is
merely the natural result.
In the arts of civilization the Moors
were much superior to the people who
finally succeeded In driving them out
of Granada In 1492. The great palace
of Mohammed, which they left Intact
behind them, was to their conquerors
as a pearl cast before swine. Unable
to appreciate Us bewitching architec
ture and other evidences of progress
In the arts far tn advance of their own
achievements, they fell at once to de
spoiling the work.
Whitewashed Walls of Stone Lace
Work-
Much of the delicate stone lacs work
was filled up with whitewash; the
painting and gliding effaced, and the
furniture looted. Charles V destroyed
the greater part of the Winter Pal
ace to make room for an unsightly
building designed to serve him as a
royal residence which was never fin
ished Philip V Italianized many of
the rooms and completed the degrada
tion of other portions by erecting par
titions which blocked up whole apart
ments that were gems of taste and
patient ingenuity.
In subsequent centuries the greed
and indifference of successive Span
ish governors permitted the wonderful
pile to be still further pillaged and de
faced. The superb entrance arch, call
ed by the Moors the "Gate of the
Law,” with its impressive inscription
In Arabic, "There is no conqueror but
God," was irreparably multllated to
make way for a wooden image of
the Virgin. In 1812 the French, under
Bebastlnl, blew up eight of the towers
and other buildings narrowly escaped
a similar fate.
Ur.pullrd by the French.
But these acta wera perhaps render*
ed necessary by the exigencies of war.
It was their French conquerors who
first taught the Spaniards the value
of the treasure they possessed In what
remained of the Alhambra, and res
cued It from the absolute ruin and
desolation that were overwhelming It.
"The roofs,” says Washington Irving,
“were repaired, the saloons and gale -
lerles protected from the weather, the
gardens cultivated, the water courses
restored, the fountains once more
made to throw up their sparkling
showers; and Spain may thank her In
vaders for having preserved to Her the
most beautiful and Interesting of her
historical monuments."
A curious feature of tbe Alhambra Is
a memento of the assistance rendered
by the English In driving the French
nut of Mpaln. A park of English
elms covers the approach. This tim
ber was a present from the Duke of
Wellington, who sent the trees over
from England to Ferdtna id VII after
the grateful monarch h.d made over

of It has survived so many vicissitudes
Is striking evidence of the consum
mate mastery with which the old
Moorish builders combined grace with
strength.
Enough of Its original lavish splen
dor Is still to be seen to make It eas
ily understood w'hence arose the pop
ular belief that Its great founder,
Ibn-l-ahmar, dealt In magic. It was
not until 1862 that the work of restor
ing the Alahambra to something like
Its original condition was seriously
begun, hut the progress made has
been small, owing to lack of funds.
Spain has few millionaires of her own

that appeals to tho practical-minded
American variety.
BRADLEY MARtTn STARTS
BOOM IN HIGHLAND KILTS.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Edinburgh, Dec. 3. —From one of the
craft, I learn that Scotch tailors have
an American to thank for a sudden
boom In a particularly wellpaying
branch of their trade. Since young
Bradley Martin distinguished himself
by appearing tn Highland ktltß on his
wedding day quite a number of orders
have been received ray makers of the
national costume, who believe a real
revival In kllt-wearlng Is coming and
are correspondingly elated.
Fashionable kilts are expensive gar
ments. The materials employed are
costly, and only skilled hands who have
served a long apprenticeship at the
work, are competent to make them. In
consequence of the sudden "boom"
many workmen in "tartans,” who for
some time have had to content them
selves with poorly paid labor In the
army clothing factories in London,
where uniforms for tho Highland Regi
ments are made, have crossed the
Tweed again and are finding steady
employment at excellent wages In the
fashionable outfitting establishments of
Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness.
While the canny Scour openly ridi
cule the taste displayed by American
sojourners In their midst who Insist on
arraying themselves In Highland garb,
they have a shrewd appreciation of the
money to be made by ministering to
their folly and devoutly hope that next
season every American who shoots over
a Scotch moor will feel It Incumbent
on him to wear glorified kilts.
The lavish and ostentatious display
of diamonds and other costly Jawelry
at the Bradley Martin wedding was
seized upon by some Journals, both
Scotch and English, as a text for func
tions discourses on the vulgarity of
wealthy Americans. It Is a case of
those who live In glass houses throw
ing stones. Fashionable English wed
dings are by no means characterized
by modest simplicity.
Opinions may differ as to the taste

NOAH’S ARK REBUILT.
Ilanlali Engineer Believes lie Ha m
Produced nn Exact Model of tho
lllbllenl Craft.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Copenhagen. Dec. 4.—M. Vogt, a
Danish engineer, has attempted to
produce an exact model of Noah’s ark.
To assist him in hts task, M. Vogt
had special translations made by dis
tinguished Hebrewlsts of passages out
of the Hebrew scriptures relating to
the ark, and got ideas, too, from a
representation of Noah's craft on a
coin dated 800 B. C., which is the
property of a museum In Copenhagen.
Owing to the methods employed In
Its construction, doubt wag expressed
from the first as to whether M. Vogt’s
craft would afloat at all—let alone
prove seaworthy In a "blow.” Popu
lar incredulity and ridicule, however,
disturbed the builder not at all, and
now he has good cause for satisfac
tion for his craft’s trial trip, the oth
er day, provide a complete success.
Carrying as passengers Its designer,
several engineers, and a large party
of newspaper men. the ark not only
showed Itself perfectly seaworthy, but
moved lightly and quickly through the
water. In fact, experts have de
clared that. In spite of her rudimen
tary design, the strange vessel is
steadiest craft ever seen on the high
seas.
As nearly as M. Vogt is able to
Judge, his vessel is one-tenth the size
of the original Noah's Ark, and is of
about 200 tonß burden. Entering by one
of the side ports, one finds a surpris
ing amount of cabin space despite the
low sloping sides. As the craft rides
high in the water, plenty of light
comes through the large port holes in
the sides, which can be left open for
ventilation when the sea Is smooth.
Of eourse the ark Is simply built and
very plainly furnished Inside, to cor
respond with the one to which the
survivors of the first flood disaster
are believed to have entrusted them
selves.
—Miss Eliza Gordon Browning, the
public lltrraHftn of Indianapolis, Is
said to bo the only woman at ths head
of so large a library.
