Twenty-five year have passed since the death of Robert Louis Stevenson. A new generation of poets and essay ist ha arisena generation which seem chiefly concerned with flouting and seeking the destruction of the principle of art which Stevenson fol lowed and championed. On the whole, the jf.tr since 1 Sf. have befn anti Stevcnsonian year. with a vengeance. If we take him at his own account of himself, Stevenson's chief ambition, all his life, was to become a master of form -and to our literary gospellers all form i anathema. A master of form Stevenson surely became. Like Foe, he ha shown us something of the mysteries of his workshop, the tricks of bis trade; he has owned up to youth ful nights spent, in the imitations of nicslels, and his proe and his verse oft en reveal careful elaboration. Was he then a fofmalit. and l his work a people, a leather Boston bag tilled with is,,ab,. pr,)(Ill(:t f artifl,.e, instead ; a large box of chocolates. The play. "The Set ant in the !

Some people seemed to begin to think so. for a while, after Stevenson died. His vogue which had lieen enormous, waned in the early days of the cen tury. 'S;eveiisonia" brought les in the marker for n time. Some of the critics began to talk of ".fekyt and Hyde" and the "Treasure Island" a if they really were "shilling shocker." as he confessed he had intended ".Jekyll and Hyde" to be. But meantime the process by which the great world appraise and appro priate it masterpiece wa slowly at work - and the world foiyid that it had wanjed and very much needed "The Celestial Surgeon." 'Requiem,'' "A Song of the Road." and virtually all of the 'Child's Garden." These were all plain ly in process of becoming veritable classic. And at this very moment they are tightening their grip on the hu man soul. If there i any poem, writ ten since Stevenson died, which will in the next thirty years, or the next thou sand, go a far as "My Wife" ha gone, with its passionate breathing of mar ried love Trusty, dusky, vivid, true. With eye of gold and bramble dew Shell-true and b!ade-traighi. we '-an only wonder what it may be. Such line a Home i the sailor, home from the ea.

Montpelier Adaptation of "Toonerville Trolley." Speaking of "hicks" and "jay walk ing," which some would-be 'metropoli tan critics have used of late, an occur ence in Montpelier the other night is good enough for Fontaine Fox and hi "Toonerville troll"', that meets all trains." It appears that the Seminary hill ear, which is the nearest thing to Mr. Fox' claseie conveyance that we know of, was standing opposite the theatre when the entertainment was "out," and naturally the passengers for the hill boarded it. This did away with a pro posed "extra" trip later, so the con ductor went to a telephone to have the orders changed Although a corps of amateur Sher lock Holmes disciples were sent out the night the cow disappeared, not even footprints could lie found Jiy which to (race her, thus substantiating the theory that the trip must have been through the air. An excursion short of one round the moon could not have oc cupied the time between her -disappearance from Rutland till the time she wandered into Proctor with an uncon cerned air, demanding lodging. Mr. Lester, who liad talked of bis loss but little, was very much surprised and pleased to recover the Hninial after such a lapse of time. Proving bis claim, he led the cow-w ith-t he mysteyious past, back to the barn on the Pittsford road. , A few days later, tried N'fore a jury of the residents of the farm, a great deal of evidence was brought tip against the cow. She refused to speak for her self and was condemned and led away to the guillotine of a local butcher, so that the tale of her trip is forever lost to the world.
