It is astonishing, said Dr. Stan ton Coit of London during Iiis latest stay in Boston, how the people of continental Europe admire George Benia.nl Shaw, lie is the only Eng-| li.sh writer since Lord Byron who lias| made any impression on them. 11 is wit is appreciated in Paris and Ber-1 lin, even though it loses much in| translation. There are two orders of genius, said Doctor Coit, and in the first or-1 der lie placed those who saw and felt I the ultimate needs of the people, like' Lincoln and Lord Bacon. The sec-' ond order includes such man as Shawl and those journalists who are sensi-i tive to the immediate needs of thel people. Shaw is typical of our day the1 world over. There is nothing of thei expert about him yet the deeper meaning of our age is that it is ani age of specialists. I never could doi what most of you Americans do—get1 your literature from weekly andi monthly magazines. I want to be ini the company of master minds of lit erature like Plato, Aristotle, Dante,, Kant. These are the great minds of the world—then men of the first' order. You never go to Shaw for anything of the first order, and if' you do you don't feel that you are in touch with a man of the first order. HAD TO THINK OF OTHERS English Market Gardener Reminded That the Law Is Supposed to Protect All. England, which has frequent plagues of wasps and an occasional overproduction of fleas, has long been supposed to be free from flies, so that it was no special cruelty to deprive horses of their tails, a use less appendage, as there are not, as in America, any flies to brush away. A recent case in a London court shows that when the fly has a chance no such immunity prevails. J. Perry Bland of Sunbury-on-the-Thames, complained of "a plague of flies" against his neighbor, Stanton Yates, an intensive gardener* The justice said he was reluctant to interfere with what appeared to be a profitable industry, but that he must grant an. injunction restraining the defend ant from stacking or depositing ma nure so as to be a nuisance to the plaintiff. Defendant testified that he used about 1,500 tons of manure a year making beds for his intensive gardening. From which it appears that in England a man may not carry on even a necessary and profit able industry to the injury of his neighbors. Är A STUBBORN MOLAR.
