TiJS iVW BOOKS OF THE NEW SEASON LEAD OFF WITH H. G. WELLS' LATEST NOVE
H. G. WELLS SEARCHES WORLD FOR
WORLD'S SALVATION IN NEW NOVEL
Has He Found it in the New Sort of Aristocracy De
scribed in "The Research Magnificent"? A Suc
cessor to "The New Machiavelli"
By the Literary Editor
Uan it Itaving hit ancettral theU
tere and going u vpon the greatttt
adventure that ever was in time or
tpace, and he it doing t now, he it
doing it In w m I ttand here and
read to you, II. O. Wells.
THAT sentence from II. O. Wells' new
novel. "The neeearch MngnMcent"
(Maomlllan Company. New York), is an
old sentence to all who have read Well
and an old thought to all who have
grasped the tremendous change that a
hundred yeara of machinery have made
In man and his life That sentence la also
the key to Wells place as a writer. He
has left the ancestral shelters of litera
ture: "Tho Hesearch Magnificent" Is final
proof. Hero ho la creating a. new sort of
novel that he thinks will best please
and best serve man In this "greatest ad
venture" of his. It Is the recording of
tory and character In relation to con
ceptions of llfo -which could otherwise
take only tho very unengaglng form of
The Ileseareh Magnificent" Isn't
Wells' best book. Tet almost everything
he has written contributes to It: It rises
out of other volumes that might have
been studies for it. Its conception of a
new "aristocracy" of men pledged priv
ately and voluntarily to tho service of a
new world Is In the "samurai" of "A
Modern Utopia." The sex problem In It
is an exaggeration of the couple's In
"Marriage," a man following service vs.
ft. woman following a leaser pleasure. It
pushes the new type of novel begun in
The New Machiavelli" still further to
ward tho essay than "Tho Tassionato
Friends" carried it. In that book, the
hero Interrupted his fervid love affair to
make side-trips of mental exploration to
Bouth Africa, China, India, Here the
whole book la exploration, a Research
Magnificent Lastly, all through tho book,
la the figure of white, the novelist, gath
ering together the papers which have
been left by the researcher magnificent
and putting them into a book though
not thla book much as Wells' Reginald
Bliss did In "Boon."
"The Research Magnificent" Is the tnle
ef a modern monk who never entered a
monastery. Ho haB that thirst after
righteousness which has made men leave
father and mother and child and wife
and 'follow after salvation, "which has
filled the world in every age with hermits
and lamas, recluses and teachers, devoted
and segregated lives," nil striving "to get
above the simplicity of barbarism" to a
Just and happy life. Benham, of 'The
Research Magnificent," Is one of these.
In this day he must seek social righteous
ness. And he does It all round the globe.
He has his spiritual opponents to con
quer, Just as the monks had, within nnd
without. The Tour Limitations, he calls
them. Three of them ho fights In his
blood. First, Fear which ho meets In a
bull pasture of boyhood, In a tiger of
India's Jungle night. In the precipices of
tho Alps. Second, Indulgence never a
great temptation for a man filled with
spiritual desires so much stronger than
those of the flesh, yet still to bo met and
vanquished in little Mrs. Skelmersdale.
Third, Jealousy a hard, cruel thing even
when a wife has failed to take her place
in the life of research which her husband
prefers to London gaiety and success.
The fourth limitation Is social; it grasps
Jfco-whole world, as the first three grasp
each man. This, Prejudice, Benham finds
as the "preventable source of human
failure and human disorder." In every
form of mean conflict It blights man's
happiness. Benham has tracked down the
last limitation and is ready to write of It
all as an observer who sees behind tho
immediacies of the quarreling world.
When one of those Immediacies tempts
him, as always, into a passionate revolt
and he dies by the bullet of a South
African soldter busy with labor riots.
The story of "The Research Magnifi
cent" Is the occasion for an essay on the
"aristocratic llfo" as the solution of the
world's misery. That is Benham's faith;
and it has long been the hope, somewhat
shattered every now and then, of II. G.
Wells. On the surface thla praise of
aristocracy is maddening by its implica
tion that our modern aristocrats are the
font of wisdom. As a matter of fact, how
ever, such a notion Is a confusion of
terms which Wells himself has been un
fortunate enough to admit. It Is like
the habit of people who- have lost faith
In the Bible, its miracles and Its Christ
and yet continue to call their rarlfled
Principal by the name of the Jehovah
of battles. By aristocracy Wells hasn't
the least Intention of meaning the over
fed, underworked, mentally or physically
debauched and spiritually vapid class to
whom so much of the direction of tho
world is now left. "The aristocrats." ho
ays, "are not at the high table, tho
kings are not enthroned; those who are
enthroned ore but pretenders and stmul
era, kings of the vulgar; the real king
and ruler is every man who sets aside
tho naive passions and self-Interest of
the; common life for the rule and service
ot the world." "Modern aristocracy, the
now aristocracy, has still to be discovered
pnd understood. This Is the necessary
next step for mankind."
Which brings one to a deeper contra
diction than any confusion of terms. Ben
bam is bitter at this muddled world and
justly. The common man, he says, "con
gests in cities tnat have no sense of citi
zenship and States that have no struc
ture: the clumsy, inconsecutive lying and
chattering of his newspapers, his hoard
ings ana muslo halls give the measure
of bis congested Intelligences; the con
fusion of ugly, half-empty churches and
chapels and meeting halls gauges the In
tensity of his congested souls: the tricks
and slow blundering dishonesties of Diet
and Congress and Parliament are his
statecraft and his wisdom."
But Js this muddled ago anything re
motely approaching democracy? It Is
amazing that Wells should let his mouth
piece say. "This age of confusion is de
mocracy, it Is all that democracy can
ever give us." Democracy and Wells'
aristocracy are both still to be discovered.
In our attempt to reach those goals
which are more than likely to prove one
and the same thing we have merely tried
two methods that bear their names. The
aristocracy pf tho past has surely been
failure enough; Its remnants In the pres
ent drown Europe in blood. Will the
democratic method succeed, f ever it is
given a fair chance? Perhaps not Per
haps, as Wells hazards about aristocracy,
"perhaps roan, like the ape and hyena and
the tapewc m and many other of Clod's
cssary but less attractive creatures, is
not for such exalted ends." Can man,

Like all Wells' Tiovels. It nnm-oaches auto
biography and whets one's appetite for tho
master-novel or actuality, which he must
surely write when he tells his own life
for tho Inspiration and aid of his fellows.

Wells facing tho terrible fact that vhllo

Last week you could blame It on the

In tho memory, the only possible ex

Harth" (Scrlbner's Sons. New York),
and certainly It h what grips the
reader bo Jio gentleman-farmer, sub
urbanite or townsman when ho reads
this book of splendid vision npd strik

man's relation, physical and spiritual, to

on that. But Just now, when von Hln

lish, In general, havo about as a good
foundation for their fnlth ns had Mrs.
Kldston, the motherly old lndy of Evelyn
St. Lcgcr's new book, "Tho Tollhouse"
(E. P. Dutton Company, New York). Mrs.
Kldston had nn "omen." Sho saw the
German Ambassador dragged through a
London crowd by the "bobbles." And on
that story a whole village built Its faith
In old Englnnd, Telling n cheerful yet
resigned tale of waiting, hoping and suf
fering, "The Tollhouse" has tears 1n Its
eyes and a smile on Its lips.
George A. Birmingham Is still a clergy
man, though few enough American read
ers of his delightful stories know that,
back In England, ho goes by the namo
of Canon Hannay. In his new collection
of short stories, "Minnie's Bishop"
(George II. Doran ComDanv. New York).
he proves his "cnlllng" both to religion
nnd to humor. Though the tltlo-story Is
not tho best by far, It paints an amusing
picture of the visit of a missionary prel
ate to tho country houso of a "sporting"
family nnd of tho manner In which he
Is shocked Into matrimony by a very
up-to-dato young lady. And there aro
many delightful things besides tho foibles
nnd "breaks" of "the cloth" In this score
of good stories.
"Two Sinners." bv Mrs. David fl.
Itltchlo (E. P. Dutton & Co., New York),
suggests in a manner of speaking, a
third, the author herself. She has failed
to make the most of hr sinners. Mrs.
IStchlo now nnd then holds a sharp
blado over the vulnerable nlaces of her
characters, but she seldom cuts deeply
tnuugn to relieve ner worK from trite
ness, Thcro have been "glad books" aplenty.
Some, people Uko them and some people
don't which Is ns much as you can say
of almost anything from Shnkcspeoro to
Hall Calnc. But now comes a real "Joy
book." It, Is "Pcgeen" (Century Com
pany, New York). Eleanor Hoyt Braln
erd's new novel Is overflowing with the
little helpfulnesses of th'ls wisp of a girl,
who Is never happy unless Bhe is "see
ing to" the wants nnd desires of thoso
sne loves. t
Headers will love this Joy book for its
cheerful tone, Its vein of tenderness. Its
constant whimsicality. Above nil, for the
aear, delightful humor of droll, delicious
Pegecn. They will think that the author
of "The Misdemeanors of Nancy" nnd
"For Love of Mary Ellen" has done
nothing superior in fancy nnd charm
and quaint characterization to "Pegecn."
As a contrast to farmlands nnd an
nntldote to suburbia, let us consider "Tho
Decoration and Furnishing of Apart

York). In a very handsome volume, full
of good printing nnd even better illustra

B. Ilussell Herts has gathered ex
