13 Book Reviews and Notes of the Publishers "THE HISTORV OF MfSIC TO THE DEATH OF SCHCKERT." by John K. Paine, Mus. I). Late Professor of Music In Harvard Cniversity; Ginn & Co., Boston; $2.75. A work of lasting value one which every lover of music should possess. The late Prof. John Knowles 1 aine was an undoubted authority on the history of music and attained emin ence as a composer of classic excel- . lence. This work is a collection of ; lectures delivered by Prof. Paine at I Harvard university. During the last I few years of his life he frequently ex- i pressed the wish that these lectures , upon which he had bestowed much j care and thought might be published . and to this end he had the lectures typewritten and had begun the work of revising them for the printer. He had substantially completed the re vision work up to the ' time of the death of Schubert when he wa,s called from earthly scenes. The remainder of the history existed only In manu script notes and, lacked revision. Hence these later lectures were not Included In the book. At the request ' of Mrs. Paine, the work of editing the volume for publication was performed by Albert A. Howard who received aid In the Anal finishing touches from Prof. J. D. M. Ford and Prof. G. L. Kittredge of Harvard university. Mr. Howard and his assistant ably per formed their work. Prof. Paine's book will worthily perpetuate his name and memory and the world is likewise in debted to him for his well known compositions "Azara" and "Tho Birds." His book is not a fragmen tary epistle but Is a continuous narra tive of the development of music from the earliest times in man's record to : I modern times. It is the fruit of great s painstaking and research and adding 1 ' much to the attractiveness of the nar ' rative in the fine literary finish throughout the production. The pe riod anterior to Greek and Roman' music Is necessarily briefly dealt with. The birth of music as an art dates Swlth the productions of Greek and Roman musical artists and the field 4j covered in these two countries is ti ll luminatingiy dealt with. With the : Christian erji musical development .'. took a grand forward impetus. Neees j. ar!ly In a work of this character only 4 matters of vital Importance and the i forces of the greatest and most far i$H reaching Influence are touched upon. Tiius tne worn is comprenensive ann I Tell proportioned and not overloaded i -with material. Detailed treatment is i given only when required toy the sub 'Ject. The landmarks In the progress I of musical culture are clearly defined 'also the characteristics of the succes isive epochs. The characters of the i leading men who shaped and aided in 'the development of the art are sharply outlined. Interwoven is much of in terest regarding the development of musical instruments. Many readers will turn especially to his pages of the history of Italian opera, a form of irart that he traces not so much to 1 Greek tragedy as he does, instead to tha early Christian miracle plays, the M Christmas masques of old England ann tne annual riwessian inat nouis Itg'biaceHo thl day. ' 1 ) i ' i,:rof- Patne'8' verdict as to what MI eonstltntes classics! music will doubt less stand. The standards of Greek ytragedy do not apply to music. He j jpisays: , "It may Be said that all music s classical wnicn reacnes tne highest Standard of beauty, as expressed in symmetrical form and purity of feel ing." i "ANOTHER THREE WEEKS." not by El-n-or?

He culated to lower the character of the ing trade for which sane readers in i has chosen the Canary Islands and ! enlisting men. Alfred M. Downes, West Africa for the scenes of this tale formerly of Aew Haven, late secretary of adventure. Two men, one a plucky, of the New ork fire department, vain seek a solution. The conspieu ousness of the book and its wide cur rency have naturally made it the sub ject of burlesque. The present one, "Another Three Weeks," is a legible little pamphlet which can be easily consumed between the courses of a slowly served dinner or between sta tions on a not too rapidly moving train. Like most burlesques of i books meant to be taken seriously it is of no interest to those who have not i read the work that is ridiculed.' This burlesque, however, is something more than a mere fun-maker as it vigorous ly satirizes not only the original au thor but also those Americans, especi ally American women, who have given her and her book their wide notoriety. "Another Three Weeks" might be called a burlesque with a purpose, and in view of the facts, a very good pur pose indeed. the love of a woman attempts to raise a steamer sunk in a West African riv er containing a valuable but elusive cargo. A Spanish bull-fight is also worked into the story. "THE SCARLET SHADOW," Walter Hurt; the Appeal Publishing Co., Gir ard, Kansas; $1.50. Mr. Hurt has written a remarkable novel in "The Scarlet Shadow," re markable in its diction, remarkable for Its vehement narration of the bloody fight between federated labor and united corporate capital In Col orado, a fight which culminated in the Steunen"erg mur,der and the Hay wood trail. The tale is hofribla enough and the picture Upon its cov er of a gallows with its hanging noose standing out in brilliant crimson against a black background is fear some and highly suggestive also. The author Ogives a vivid but bombastic picture of the lurid times during the great labor war In question. He dis plays much versatility In his work, giving with swift transition tragedy, humor, pathos and satire marred, however, by an almost frenzied pres entation of the salient facts in the case. The author was a reporter and special writer on Denver papers and was present on the stage of his story during the jgreater part of the period which which he deals, and has impart ed to the tale much local flavor. He puts, the, real actors in the labor war into his pictures and under their real names. The value of the narrative Is lessened by the exaggerated colors with which he Invests It and the writ er's evident unbounded enthusiasm In behalf of labor. Impartial students of sociological and political questions will be, averse to vtejwing the book as help ful in their toil owing to this intem perance of style and language. Nev ertheless the author displays much tal ent in his work and had his pictures of the tragic scenes been drawn with calmness without the constant dis play of pyrotechnics it would have been more praiseworthy. forceful American, the other an art Is- writing of the fir ' in "Fire tic, ease-loving Englishman, each for Fighters and Tl i ?!." the , book which the Harpers announced for publication only a week or two before the author's death, discusses this question of firemen's pay. "As regards recompense in dollars and cents, the arduous work of the fireman receives a fair reward," says Mr. Downes. "A fireman who has Just entered is known as a fourth-grade fireman, and his annual salary is $800. In a year he is a third-grade fireman at $1,000; in another year a second-grade fireman at $1,200; and then, after three years he becomes a first-grade man and re ceives $1,400. So, while the dangers and hardships are often great, and the duties at times are difficult beyond description, the compensation on the whole is much better than It is in many other occupations. But when we remember," continues Mr. Downes "that the gallant firemen are watch ing, over our safety eVery hour of the twenty-four, ready to risk their own lives for ours, we realize that the money payment could represent only a part of the real debt." In the same list is "Travers," by Sara Dean a story of the San Fran cisco earthquake. The author, who passed through the awful experience, has introduced two chief characters a young and wealthy California girl and an Englishman, formerly of the Indian Medical Service, later an out cast and t fugitive suffering the penal ty of another's wrongdoing. On the night of the earthquake he becomes a thief, and ensuing events serve to show how a thief may yet become a hero. The author's purpose Is to show that not only the work of men's hands but their conventional characters were overturned by the catastrophe. , Dainty little volumes, 7 by 4 inches in size, each inclosed in a slip case, are "The Golden Books," by the Out ing Publishing Company, intended to represent the best In literature, short stories, essays and poems. Nearly a dozen are already issued and the lat est to come to hand is "My Winter Garden" by Charles Klngsley, said to be its first reprinting In this country. Giving up architecture for the pur suit of literature, Mr. William J. Locke, author of "The Beloved Vaga bond" and "The Morals of Marcus, Ordeyne," has resigned the secretary ship of the Royal Institute of British Architects and has gone to Algiers for change of scene and more freedom for his literary work. He is now en gaged on a new novel, which will be issued in London by John Murray and in , this country by the John Lane Company. The latter will Issue the coming spring a special uniform edl tion of Mi4. Lock's works In 10 vol umes. I "THE RIGHT TO IGNORE THE hTA'l K, published by Benjamin R. Tuoker; New York; 1o cents. Benjamin R. Tucker, New York, has published in pamplet form "The Right to Ignore the State," by Her bert Spencer a reprint of a chapter from "Social Statics" suppressed by the author. In a foreword the pub lisher states that although Mr. Spencer suppressed this declaration he never answered his own argument, and as Anarchists believe the arguments are unanswerable they are published to test that belief. "THE GREAT SECRET," by E. Phil ips Oppenhelm, Boston; Little, Brown t Co.; $1.50. A prolific writer certainly is Mr. Op penhelm and there Is always a mar S ret for his goods. As usual with his Sslterary productions as we find on In quiry at the book stores and depot jSiew-8. stands, his new book 'The Great & !erre" is linntiestionnhlv one of tHe siest sellers. It is herakkd In the London Standard as "The finest and (host absorbing storv of adventure that Mr. Oppenhelm has ever writ en," and both English liberals and onservatlves praise It. In this new lovel the author of "The Malefactor," A Lost Leader." etc., deals with a reat International ro-splraoy In i'hlch Germany Is moving machinery o crush England, and an American Irl possessing both beauty pnd brains urnlshes a captivating heroine.

As says the New f'iork Sun: In "The Great Secret." i.lr. jTPpenhelm is at his preposterous Heat as a sipinner of fantastically mys j.ItIous yarns and concoetor of utterly Jijnpossible plots of great and almost sMtextricable complexity.

This visit was made last summer; It occupied six weeks, and involved a journey of eight thousand miles, the starting point being the writer's coun try home, at Burlington, Vermont, nnd the remotest places reached being Los Angeles and Vancouver. For variety of interest the Febru ary McClure's can hold Its own. Prof. William James of Harvard sounds a battle-cry to the colleges In his arti cle, "The Social Value of the College bred." In "The Men Who Learned to Fly," some Interesting facts are set forth by George Klbbe Turner. Wil liam T. Hornaday has an article on "The Psychology of Wild Animals." There is a very good list of fiction, including further chapters of Mary Stewart Cutting's series, "The Wayfarers," partment of the drama and a valuable i ir 'ng a Corporation." tolls :lie planby article on Motoring complete the num ber, and there are a number of com pleted stories. Mrs. Louise Cox's painting, "Feed ing the Doves," which was awarded a $1,000 prize last year by Sir Caspar Purdon Clarke, director of the Met ropolitan Museum of Art, forms' the cover design of the February num ber of Woman's Home Companion. Mrs. Cox's little daughter acted . as model for the painting. The number is unusually rich, both in special ar ticles and fiction. The principal article in the Febru ary Everybody is contributed by Ralph D. Paine, and, under the title of "Over the Florida Keys by Rail," tells the story of the conception and execution of Flagler's great plan to join Key West to the mainland by a "seagoing railway." The number is filled with timely articles, forceful nar rative and a goodly share of romance and humor. The illustrations demand a word of mention. Besides a series of pencil drawings of modern Chicago, by Vernon Howe Bailey, and the fifth of William Balfour Ker's descriptive frontispieces, "The Story of an Ameri can Home," there are splendid exam ples of the work of Mary Greene Blurtienschein, Will Crawford ' and Gustavus C. Wldney, as well-as a pro fusion of photographs. which the Steel Trust has taken uM"0 Hi' its employ into p i: tut rsliip, -with profit to all concerned. "A Short Cut to Boston" is the story of the Cape Cod Canal. "Taking the Railway to the People" is tho story of the newest de velopment of transportation as ex emplified in Now England, wtiere trol ley lines and railways in alliance are promising many changes.
