The" First Book rrlutod in English North
Books and papers nro so plentiful
that many of our renders seldom think
about tlio limoa when neither were
printed in Amorioa. And how incon
venient it would bo, If wo, like Bouioof
tho old settlern, wero limited to ono
book in ft colony. Yet, wo are inform
ed that this book was so well road that
all tho ohildrcd could read.
Two hundred and foity-nino years
ago (1038), an cnthusiaitio Puritan
ralaoti money by subscription in Hol
land and England, to pnrchaso a print
jug maohino for British North Amer
ica. As soon as tho maohino was pro
cured, this reverend gentleman, Mr.
Jesso Glover, in company with his
wife and Stephon Dayo, a printer, pot
Ball for tho land mnoh in uced of books.
Glover died boforo reaching tho conti
nent, but his widow set up tho machine
in Cambridge. In 1C89, Dayo printed
tho Frecdman's Oath and an "Alma
naok" for Now England, Tho noxi
year tho "psalter" was printed. Its
titlo was "Tho wholo Book of Psalms
Faithfully translated into English
Metre." "Whcreunto is prefixed a dis
conrso declaring not only tho lawful
ness, but also tho necessity of "Heav
enly Ordinanco of Singing Scripture
Psalms in tho Churches of God." Such
was tho titlo given to tho noted "Bay
Psalm Book." Richard Mather, Rov.
Thomas Weld, Rov. John Elliot and
others contributed separato divisions
of tho translation. Tho book was a
small 8vo of 295 unnuraborod pagos.
It coutnined much bad print and plenty
of bad paper. Tho .preface covoroJ
twelve pages. An extract of tho 133
psalm will give an idea of its crudo

Not all wero as unpolished as this,
bnt nono received a master finish.
There nro few copies of tho first edi
tion, and theso have a commercial val
no of 1000; or, ovon moro. One copy
is in the library of tho Amcrioan Anti
quarian Society at Worcester. Two
copies of the Prinoe colleotion are in
tho Boston publio library. Ono of the
last named copies belonged to Richard
Mather, and afterwards, was tho pro
perty of his son Increase This copy
with fonr others was deposited by
Prinoe in tho Old South Church. It
was from tho Mather book that Dr.
ShurtlcfT mado an exact reprint of 71
copies. This reprint copy Bolls from
350 a to $100. Another copy of tho
original is said to bo in possession of
Georgo Livormoro's widow. Cornelins
Vandorbuilt purchased a copy for
$1200. Ho had it elegantly bonnd
and enclosed in a morocco case.
A second edition was mado in 1647.
Of this, the only known copy belongs
to Mr. Harris of Providonco. He gave
S435 for it. The Dnnstcr revision,
printed by Samuel Green, was mado in
1650. It contained an edition 46 pages,
and many corrections. There may
have beon 50 editions of this revision.
Thomas Prios made a revision which
was printed in 1758. You may j'udgo
from the following stanza the value of
"O, blessed man walk not In
Tho counsel of 111 men,
Nor stands within the sinner's ways;
Nor scoffer's scats sit in."
John Elliot added the Psalm Book
to his Indian Testament in 1661, en
titled, "Wsmo ketoo homae Uketoo

Marriage Customs in Southern Siberia
There is ono thing raroly omitted
from fem'alo custom, which is a silver
amulet hanging on the breast, in the
form of a kernel, oylinder or triangle,
containing Muhammadan writing or
perhaps prayer, and given by tho hus
bond at the timo of marriage. Tho
various circumstances connected with
marriago among tho Kirghese remind
ono strongly of patriarohial times.
Fifteen is tho marriageable age, and
preliminiaries nro comraonccd by tho
parents of tho bridegroom sending a
deputation of matoh makers to the par
ents of tho bride, offering presents,
and among them n dish specially pro
pared for tho occasion of liver and mut
ton fat, which signifies that they mean
matrimony. After this tho complimeut
is roturnod by presents and a similar
dish sent by the girl's parents to tboso
of tho bridogroom. The bride's father
then summons a meeting of kinsmen
to consider the kalim, or gross amount
to be paid for tho bride. The kalim
may oonsist of forty, sixty or ono hun
dred sheep, or from nine to forty-seven
head of cattle, bosides which kalim
tho bridegroom has to give at least two
presents of camels, horses, cows, fire
arms, or khalats. Theso things decid
ed, the bride's father sends to the
bridegroom's aul for tho kalim and
ono of tho presents, after which the
bridegroom takes the othor present
and goes to see the bride for tho first
timo. Not that he can easily' change
his mind when things have gone thus
far, for tho delivery of his present vir
tually seals the marriage contract, and
ho is so firmly betrothed that should ho
die boforo the time of marriage tho in
tended wifo has to go homo to his par
ents and bo taken for the wife of the
noxt son. Vice versa, if during tho
period of betrothal tho girl should die,
her parents aro bound to givo instead
their next daughter, or in default of
ono, to return tho kalim and iay a fino.
When tho period of betrothal is at
an ond the bridegroom goes to tho aul
of his bride, who is given up by her
parents, with a dowry of a tent, a
oamel or riding-horse, cattlo and n
bride's hoad dress, besides a bed, crock
ery, and a trunk of wearing apparel.
On tho wedding night tho mullah, or
priest, plaoes tho bride and bridegroom
in tho midst of a tent, puts beforo
them a covered cup of water, and bo
gins tho prayers. Then bo asks the
contracting parties if it is with their
full consent they ongago themselves to
bo married, and three times gives them
tho water to drink. Mullahs sometimes
put in tho water vessel an arrow with
a tuft of hair tied thereto from tho
mano of tho bride's horse, or ono of
her ribbons; others dip therein a paper
of written prayers. Tho happy com
pletion of a marriago is followed
among tho Kirglioso by feasting and
games, and then tho newly married
depart to the bridegroom's aul, with
tho camels carrying the troursoau, and
tho portion of his wealb which a fath
er gives to each of his daughters on
her marriage. Du, Hi;nry Lansdkm,

The Aims and Duties of a Journalist-
Tho Supremo Court of Louisiana re
cently rendered a decision in a news
paper caso in whioh the following wise
observations were mado upon the duty
and province of tho newspaper:
"Surely newspapers havo some ob
ject higher than mere monoy making.
As operated in modern times thoy aro
something more than mere advertising
mediums, or even purveyors of news.
Thoy are organs of publio opinion, in
structors of the poople, advooates of
certain fixed policies and principles,
tho promotion of which must gratify
tho intellectual and moral desires of
their proprietors, oven if thoy do not
in all cases advanco their pecuniary in
terests. Wo might well conceive that,
though offered ample pecuniary induce
ments to advocate principles or causes
whioh they disbelieve, or to abstain
from advocating tboso which they ap
prove, worthy journalists would reject
suob propositions with tho scorn whioh
Tho National Defender, in com
menting upon tins, very properly says;
"This is tho first time within our
knowledge that a court of law has ven
tured to define the proper aims and du
ties 'of tho journalist. Tho opinion is
sound and it shows that the judges
havo a much higher and nobler con
ception of tho power and influence of
journalism than very many who are
engaged in that profession."

Who Wrote Shakespeare-
KINATIUS nONNKI.LT CONTENDS
HACON IS THE TRUE 11AI1I).
Tho World rcconllv containod a
very elaborate exposition of Ignatius
Donnelly's attempt to dethrone Shako
Bpcaro and award tho honor of tho
authorship of tho so-called Shakcspcaro
plays to Lork Baoon. Tho artlolo was
wrilton by Professor Thomas David
Bon, a well known scholar, philosopher
and critle. Mr. Davidson has recently
paid Mr. Donnelly a visit nt his homo
at Hastings, Minnesota, examined tlio
manuscript of his forthcoming work,
tho "Groat Cryptogram," had tho main
features of tho cipher explained to him
and obtained permission to roport.
Beforo examining Mr. Donnelly's work
Mr. Davidson was an entire skoptio in
regard to tho Bacon theory, but ho
"now admits that he is very much shnk
en in his belief that tho plays wcto
written by Sbakcspeare and declares
that, if thoy had como down to us
without any author's nnmo attached,
thoy wonld bavo boen unhesitatingly
attribnted to Baoon. Ho says ho rcaoh
cd this conviction altogether apart
from tho cipher.
Tho article gives a brief summary of
tlio results reachod in Mr. Donnelly's
book. Tho book is divided into two
parts an arguraont and a demonstra
tion. Tho formor collects, arranges
and sums up all tho arguments that
havo been put forward in the last thirty
years in favor of tho Baconian theory
and adds a number. Tho author first
endeavors to show that tho education
nnd character of Shakespcaro were such
that it is ridioulous to imagino that ho
could have written plays which aro dis
tilled from all tho wisdom and learn
ing of tho world. He shows that his
education must havo been oxtromcly
meagre, while that of tho author of tho
plays was broad nnd deep.
Ho shows Shakospearo to havo boon
steeped in almost every kind of vice,
dying in the prime ot life from tho re
sults of a three day's drunken spreo.
He noxt show's that thoro is no record
that Shakespeare over owned a library
or even a book, and that not a single
scrap of manusoript of his has como
down to us, not oven a letter to auy of
tho numerous men with whom ho is
known to have been acquainted, and
that there is extant no letter addressed
to him except one asking for a loan of
Having demonstrated to his own
satisfaction that tbo author of the plays
was not Shakespeare,- Mr. Donnelly
next proceeds to prove that ho was
Bacon. After adducing evidenco to
show that Bacon was a poet and tho
author of the plays a profound and
learned philosopher, ho treats of the
gcograpny ot too piays. vv one strat-ford-upon-Avon
was born) is never onco mentioned in
tbo plays, St Albans, tho homo of
Bacon, is mentioned twenty-threo
times, no next shows that tho politics
and the religion of the writer of tho
plays aro identical with Bacon's poli
tics and religion and that what Bacon
declared to bo his great lifo purpose is
fnlly exemplified in tho plays. -A ohap-
ter is devoted to Bacon's reasons for
It appears, accordingly to Mr. Don
nelly, not only that Bacon wrote works
whioh ho never publicly acknowledged,
but that he is addressed by ono of his
friends as the greatest wit in England.
though not known as such by bis own
namo. Among the reasons for conceal
ment Mr. Donnelly pnts tho political
tendenoy of some of the plays, which
was to encourage treason.
rne nrst part ot tne work closes
with a long list of parallelisms between
Bacon's acknowledged works and tbo
Shakesporean plays identioal express
ions, metaphors, opinions, quotations.
studies, errors, use of unusual words,
character and style.
Tne result ot the wbolo argument,
aooording to Mr. Davidson, is to leavo
upon tho mind a strong impression
that if Bacon was not the solo author
of tho plays, he had, at least, a princi
pal hand in them, supplying tho schol-
arsnip, tne art and tne philosophy.
After the argument making tho
authorship of Bacon probable comes
tho demonstration, that is the cipher
narrative, wbioh bas already aroused
so muoh interest in the publio. Tho

''Samantha at Saratoga."
liv JosiAit Allen's wike.
Ono of tho most prominent person
ages of tho literary world jitBt now Is
Miss Marietta Holley, popularly known
as Samantha Allen, or Jusinh Allen's
wifo. Sho beoamo a fovorito very
early in her literary career, and each
now iss'uo from her pen has added to
hor fame, until, for her latest work,
"Samantha nt Saratoga," Messrs. Hub
bard Brothers paid her a princely sum
and tho book is decidedly n hit. It
will doubtless outsell her previous is
sues, as it unquestionably outshines
them nil in tbo fascinating vein of
humor in whtuli MUs Holley is so hap
py and so rich.
Preparing for this work, Miss Holley
went to Saratoga and spent nn cntiro
season, with eyes and ears open, and
with brain and pencil vigorously nt
work. Showent-in her famous as
sumed rolo of Josiah Allen's wifo, her
imaginary Josiah at her side, with his
characteristic blunders, faux pas, nnd
quick, boyliko enthusiasm. As Saman
tha Allen, Miss Holley is observant,
unsophisticated, outspoken, nnd sound
to tho core on every question of pro
priety. Such a couple in tho whirl of
Saratoga would certainly develop many
remarkablo situations nnd utter many
funny comments. It is hore tho humor
of the book arises. Plain, back-country,
villago life, and gay arlifteal Sara
toga aro bo wide apart, that each side
becomes ludicrous to tho other. Theso
ludicrous, laugh-urovoking contrasts
are the dominant features of Miss Hoi
