MARK TWAIN IS ALL RIGHT The Story of Heavy TipncUl Lows Not Well rounded , " * * FICKLE FAME OF LITERARY PEOPLE Tlio Work of n Prolific1 I'rench Author Dcnth of lill/ibclli Oakct Smith I I > itct > cw snil y lp ot I.llcrary Circle * , Apropos of Uio recent Lfltos club dinner "lo Mark Twain , I happened to hear of arc- mark mailo bv .1 member ot the club to n friend who asked as to the special slgnlil- ranee of the dinner : "Well. " said the Utofcman , "everybody naturally feels sorry for Mark In his recent losses , nnd the dinner WAS given to show him his friends/ ' This , In part , confirms the rumors wliicii have been rife In New York for some weeks past. These rumors represent the genial author as having suffered heavy lltmnclal losses during the stringency , nnd tlicso losses , It is said , brought him back to Now York from abroad , .lust u lint truth there Is in thcso reports ills dlfllcult to state. . One thing is certain ; Mark Twain continues living In New York , making the Players' club his home , whllu his family remains in Italy. When the humorist left America , lomcwlmt over a jearago , lie leased his Hartford house and gnvn It out that ho would not return within three years , his In- - -tcntion being to oducatohlschlldren abro.id. Ho bad not been gone moro than six months when ho suddenly stepped oft n French steamer on a Now York dock , stayed In the ' city a fortnight and returned to Italy. A few weelcs ago hi ) again came back , and has remained In Now York. ThUvcek the an nouncement Is made that ho has sold out his Interest In the publishing hcus3 of which helms been the senior member , and has retired - " * tired absolutely as a publisher. " * . CAt tlio same time , even if Mark Twain is financially embarrassed , ho certainly bus resources - , , sources not roinnion with every man. Ho - * < has made a deal of money out of his own * books , the profits which came to him from * General Grant's book were largo , 4.T Ills elegant home at Hartford nnd j " Ills country house in New York state t are both valuable. ho still re ceives very high prices for bis work , and . altogether 1 can hardly bcllovoj' that Mark ' ' 1 Twain is suffering , or will suffer. He has * always been deemed rich , and correctly so , , * and if he has suffered losses ho Is In no immediate - - , mediate danger ot becoming a pauper , 1 fancy. Tliu I'.iine tit I.ltcrnry Pnop'o. As a matter of fact , I think It would sur prise some of our best known writers to learn how little their nnuici arc knowu. and the limit of their fame. These of us in the literary atmosphere can hardly realize this , tnit occasionally wo run across the most striking evidences of It. And yet , after all , the fact Is not so imii'h to bo wondered at. This country of outs Is a very big land , nnd few authors are fortunate enough to have their fnmo sung through It. In fact , 1 question very much it there are five living authors who can truthfully lay claim to a national reputation. Out of our 05,000,000 of people there arc moro millions who have never heard of Mr. Ilowclls , for example , than there are millions to whom his name is familiar. Koberl Louis Stevenson's fume is confined , in the minds of many of thcso millions , to his v "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde , " and thousands who have seen the play never heard of the author's name , just ns millions know of our nntionul hymn "America'1 to thousands who know that its author is Samuel Francis - Smith. A striking example In this connec tion is" the familiarity of millions with the hymn ' 'Nearer , My God to Thee , " yet not 10 percent know its author's namo. Everyone ono almost Knows "The Sweet By and By , " and yet how many could give the name of the author of its words , to say nothing of the faet that ho is living practically un known to the world i Perhaps of living women writers Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett may be said to bo the moso gener ally known by name , but only in connection with her "Little Lord Fauntleroy. " 1 ven ture to say that Will Curleton's name is known in thousands of cases where the name of Thomas Bally Aldrleh has never been heard of. 1 believe that the names of Oliver Wendell Holmes and Low Wallace are moro thoroughly known today In America than , - are the names of any two male writers. Men like Longfellow , Whlttler and Lowell pos sessed really national reputations , but , with the possible exception of Dr. tlolmca , of what poet of today can this bo saiit ! Liter ary fame is a mighty uncertain quality , and - * ono never ronli/.cs its narrow limits until s ono moves around among all classes of pool - l > Io and tests the matter. The Writer of 1'rnicli Courts. Ono hundred thousand volumes of "Tho Famous Women of the French Court" have now been sold In America alone , and yet how little is known of their author , Imbcrt de Baint-Amand. Still , Ills personality is a very Interesting one. From the very first volume Issued in this country from bis pen , "Mario Antoinette and the Knd of the Old flcplmo , " ho has been favorably received. 1'crhaps it is the conviction of scholarship and tno air of familiarity with the scenes described Imparted by these volumes that lias caught the publlo fancy , M. Saint- Alumni's life has been suoh as to equip him peculiarly for the work. Ho is a nobleman , a baton , and son of an eminent French mili tary ofllcor. ills mother was the daughter of General Ylcomto Doinon , who commanded u division of cavalry at Waterloo , and whoso name is IiiKcrlbod on tlio Arc do Tiiomphe. M. Balnt-Armand has pursued at the same time a diplomatic and n literary career. Ho is now u minister plenipotentiary of the llrst class , and takes part in this capacity In the work of the ministry of foreign affairs In 1'arU. U was during the discharge of his oftlcial duties that the suggestion of writing up tlto famous women of the French court cnmo to him. The idea of writing the vol umes on "Tho Women ot the Versailles Court" occurred to him in 1STO , during the commune , while the ofllccs of the ministry were established provisionally In the halls ol the palace of Versailles , his Josk being nlVuated In the very midst of tin HCCIICS in which the events ho describes toolc place , Ho decided to write Ills soncs on "Tho Women of the Tullorlcs" while gaIn # at the ruins of the palncc , where ho had assisted nt the fetes given under the second empire. The eagerness with which thcso Jlrst vol. utncs were received encouraged him logo on , until now over thirty volumes have appeared fiom his pun , Of these nineteen lm\o thus far been iranslnicd and published in this country. flio Talk at 1.Horary Ulrtlr * .

With English girls the books of Kosa Kouchette Carey , "ICdnn Ljuli , " "The Duchess. " Miss Braddon and "Sirs. Alexan der" fontlnuo to bo the most popular tuid the most widely asked for and road. It was last week that a small knot of people ple gathered In u country graveyard on Long Islund. It wiisdlftlcult to determine which was Jho most forlorn the weather , the graveyard or tLo poojilo assembled. And yet thU little knot had gathered to lower Into the ground the remain * of ono of the most tflftcanml beautiful autnorcv < cs of her time.

The enduring quality of literary fame Is not less painful to contemplate than is Its narrowness sometimes in the rase ot authors of the most popular order. I remember an amusing Instance of this kind which hap pened to a literary mail who approached the chairman of the reception committee of the ifli > ii Huh of nno of our largest cities to give a rtoViHlou to Mjrjon Ci-uvfonl The l.Kr- nry man took it mr fi'rmiiud , of coJiaO , lluU the name and works of the author of "Dr. Isaacs" wcra familiar to n man of Intelli gence.

Harper & Brothers , Now York. For sale by Megeath Station ory com - pany , Oniaha. C. C.

It Is really refreshing to read n 'good story outside of the beaten track of love and ro mance.
