Through happy accident the review
er' eye has had the pleasure of a first
Introduction to the enjoyable "Little
Journey" upon -which Elbert Hubbard
monthly, with the aid of G. P. Putnam's
Song, conducts many thousands t
grateful readers tu the "Homes of Good
Mrn and Great." In the assumption
that some of the readers of these Hues
me as benighted as he himself hus
hitherto been toiii'liing this churmliiR
terleB of vicarious itineraries, the re
viewer will explain Unit the llrst Jour
ney was made weven niun'tlis iiro, when
Mr. Hubbard Issued an outline sketch
of George Eliot, compressed lutii a neat
32-pnire folio of the Chup-Book type,
nnd Illumined with personal recollec
tions of a real visit which Mr. Hubbard,
as an enthusiastic ptlffrlm-worshlpper
at her shrine, had onco made to Mrs,
Lewes' home. That venture was so cor
dially welcomed that It was followed,
In turn, by similar treatments of Cnr
lyle, Ruakln. Gladstone, J. M. W. Tur
ner, Jonathan Swift and now. Victor
Hugo. Future visits are promised to
the homes of Wordsworth, Thackeray,
Plekens, Oliver Goldsmith and Shakes
Mr. Hubbard possesses nn enviable
knack of dramatic conciseness in his
narrations. In a few words, following
each other naturally yt with , rare
choice, he presents a vivkl and Intelll
Klble picture of a character or u condi
tion; yet with a certain buoyancy that
readily carries the reader's Interest
along from scene to scene. Let a speci
men or more of his workmanship be
introduced In evidence. Here Is a plc
tureof thehousein which Victor Hugo's
mother lived In 1S0S, when Victor's fa
ther. General Hugo, was off to the wars
with Joseph Bonaparte, in Spain, and
when Victor himself was a lad of C:
It wasoneof those peer liar old places oc
casionally seen In France. The environs
of London have a few: America none of
which I know. This house, roomy, com
fortable and antiquated, was" surrounded
with trees and a tangle of shrubbery,
vires and flowers; about it all was n high
stone wall and in front a picketed iron
nate. It was a Mosaic a sample of the
sixteenth century inlaid In this; solitary
as the woods; quiet as a convent; sacred
us a forest: u place for dream", and rev
erie, and rest. At the baok of the house
was a dilapidated little chapel. Here an
used priest counted hi beads, said daily
mass, and endeavored to keep moth, rust,
and ruin from the house of prayer. This
lu lest was. u scholar, a man of learning;
he taught the children of Madame Hugo.
Victor Hugo was named In honor of
General Victor Lahorle. who stood as
godfather at Madame Hugo's request,
a request preferred by letter even be
fore Victor was born. It is necessary
to understand General and Madame
Hugo's friendship for General Lahorle
in order to fully comprehend another
scene which Mr. Hubbard depicts:
Another man lived in this chapel. He
never went outside the gute, and took ex
ercise at night. He had a cot bed In the
phelter of the altar; beneath his pillow
were a pair of pistols and a copy of
Tacitus. This man lived there summer or
winter, although there was no warmth
save the scanty sunshine that stole in
through the shattered windows. He, too.
taught the children and gave them little
lectures on history. He loved ths young-

him. The mother sought to keep her chil
dren Inside the house, so that they should
not witness the scene, but she did not suc
ceed. The boys fought their mother and
the servants in a mad frenzy trying to
rescue the old man. The soldiers formed
In columns of four and marched their
Not long after, Madame" Hugo was pass
ing the church of St. Jaques du Hant
J'as her youngest boy's hand was in
her's. She saw a large placard posted In
front of the church. She paused, and
pointing to It said, "Victor, read that!"
The boy read. It was a notice that Gen
eral Lahorle had been shot that day on the
plains of Orenvllie by order of a court
marshal. General Lahorle was a gentle
man of Brittany. He was a Republican,
nnd live years ore had grievously of
fended the emperor. A charge of conspir
acy being proved against him, a price was
placed upon his head, and he found a tem
porary refuge with the mother of his god
noil. That tragic Incident of the arrest
nnd of the placard announcing General
Lahorie's death, burned deep Into the soul
of the manllng. and wh6 shall suy to whut
extent it colored his future life?
It would be pleasant to follow Mr.
Hubbard through all his Journey. Hut
our aim Is only trt give the reader
Home sample notions of his quality as
a guide. His characterization of Hugo,
after pages descriptive of his stormy
career prior to the banishment to
Guernsey, is terse and Just: "He knew
history by heart and toyed with It;

mistake to call him .a statesman. He
was bold to rnshnesn, Impulsive, Im
patient and vehement. Because a man

powder to kill a fly. : He was an agita

ume months ago there appeared a
little volume called "Pugan Papers,"
the author of which was set down as
Kenneth Orahanie. No one to speak
of then lcntw Kenneth Grahame, but
this dearth of acquaintanceship was not
for long. The "Papers' possessed such
manifest charm, nnd so clearly betok
ened genius In their author, that Ken
neth Grahame, nrter much less thun the
traditional probation. Js already well on
his way toward fame. IStone & Kim
ball, In a delightfully printed book,
have Just Issued a second collection to
tales , by Mr.. Grahame, entitled "The
Golden Age." The significance of this
title lies In the fact that the tales are
mostly all of childhood; and ure so
exquisitely etched that with the sim
plest materials as, for 'Instance, a lit
tle girl playing with two dolls, In the
tnle called "Sawdust and Sin" the au
thor, by his admirable tact and sym
pathy, will enchant one Into taking his
effect all very seriously, and will per
ceive In the simplest doings and think

nificances. "The Golden Age" Is a vol
ume which no normal man can read
without both pleasure and profit.
Scranton, as one of the pre-eminent
bear centers of the United States, ought
to take kindly to the "One Hundred
Bear Stories" which Murat Halstead
has edited for publication In paper cov
ers by the J. S. Ogilvie company. Mr.
Halstead confesses that once, when a
younger man, he made the great mis
take of refusing to print bear stories in
the paper of which .he was then editor.
Later years of more sympathetic appre
ciation of the possibilities of bruin in
literature have Inspired him to make
the partial atonement embodied ,ln the
present engaging compendium, 'which
will please all who are pleased with
reading of Its kind.
"Jewel Don'ts" Is the self-descriptive
name of a pamphlet from the pen of
Edmund Russell, theaesthete, and from
the press of the Bramberton Publishing
company. 135 Greenwich street. New
York. It comprises directions as tu the
proper use of precious stones for pur
posts of personal adornment, together
with quotations, etc., concerning Jewels.
A readable essay entitled "Madame de
Stael, the Rival of Napoleon," by Mrs.
Helen Hinsdale Rich, a Chicago lady of
some eminence In letters, is published
In convenient nnd dainty pamphlet
form by Stone & Kimball, of that city,
after the manner of their now celebrated
Chap-Book. Mrs. Rich Is exuberant In
her eulogy of the subject of her essay;
and can find everything to praise and
nothing to censure in her heroine's ca
reer. But for all that, the paper is
readable, and Just brief enough to es
cape from becoming monotonous.
It has come as last, after much expec
tation. Ignatflus Donnelly has Issued a
book on the money question. - "The
American People's Money" (Chicago:
Laird & Lee). It is an ingenious resume
of arguments in behalf of the free coin
age of silver, put Into the form of a
dialogue between an Eastern banker
and a Western farmer, who are Jour
neying together In the same car. Prob
ably the best things In this book, as also
in "Coin's Financial School," are Its
pictures. One of them represents
Washington and Jefferson holding up
the Declaration of Independence, with
the words, "Alt men are created equal,"
before an audience of .monopolists,
landlords, king and nobles, who scowl
and turn away. As Illustrating the
equality that exists at present In-the
ITnited States, there In a picture of
Uncle Sam pointing to a cage full of
monkeys, labeled Astors. Sage, Goulds
and Vanderbllts. l.'pnn a pile of gold,
In another picture, Plutocracy, with
tail and trident, sits holding In his left
hand a number of strings which sever
ally terminate at the ears of the great
editors, who are stirring a pot In which
they are "cooking the lies" of gold mon
ometallism. In answer to the claim
of the gold bugs that our currency Is
ampler now than at any previous time,
Mr. Donnelly tells the story of the col
ored man who, having caught a Chop
per of a cnt-IWh, secreted It In a .'little
pool beside the river and went further
oown ine stream. Hy und by a picka
ninny camealong.saw the big fish In the
pool and exchanged it for a little one
which he himself had" ciyught. There
Is a picture expressing the mature ne
gro's astonishment when, having re
turned and pulled out his fish, he ex
claims: "Dls In de same place. DIs Is
de ame poplar, pis Is de same string.
Dls mus' he de same fish. Hut, Jerusa
lem! how he hab shrunk." The "crime
of '73" is Illustrated by the picture of
Justice trying to awaken a number of
somnolent senators while a sneak thief,
representing the gold bugs, In manipu
lating the bills. Very pertinent, Indeed,
Is the picture called "What We Are
Coming To." It represents John Bull
and Baron Rothschild kicking Uncle
Sam down stairs, and underneath Is
this dialogue: , '.
John Bull: "Get off the planet, you bold
fraud. You were conceived In a blunder
and your existence Is ft reproach to the
money power of the world. Get out I"
Rothschild: 0et away with you! Der
Is no Got but Mammon, and Chon nnd me
aro his prophets. Here, take your Tecla
radon of Independence mlt you. It's all n
lot of lies." y ' . '

large ea.e, .

C. R. Tuttle has prepared and Charles
H. Kerr & Co., Chicago, have published
In book form an Official report of the
recent Illlonls Free Silver convention.
It Is amplified by Mr. Turtle's own ideas
und predictions on the currency ques
tion. Needless to say, he believe free
silver will win.

Handclasp with Mrs. Wescuor.
Northfleld, Mass., June 21. Paul W.
Goldsbury is none the worse for his
eighteen hours handclasp with Mrs. A.
J. Wesener, wife or a professor In the
Chicago College of Physicians and Sur
geons. He denies that he was hypno
tized by Mrs. Wesener, and says the
test was one of Christian science
against natural will power. His story
of the affair makes H seem all the mora
. The couple were In Warwick, a small
town near here, one evening recently,
when Mrs. Weeener, 'Who is 28 years
old, challenged Goldsbury, who is 25,
a graduate of Williams college and it
member et Dwlght I Moody's College
quartette, to a contest, she asserting
thut, with the assistance of Christian
science, she could demonstrate that her
will ..was .stronger than his. . They
clasped hands, and, incredible as it
may seem, there are several competent,
witnesses to prove that the clasp con
tinued eighteen hours, and then only by
force were they neparted, both being
exhausted mentally and physically.
Goldsbury says of the affair: "We
had been to the top of Mount Grace
to see the aunset and came home in the
moonlight. I know that the world will
scoff when I say that our souls have
an affinity for each other. I mean this
In no vulgar sense. Our souls have
faith, each in the other. The affair
was an outpouring of God's holy spirit
of truth, faith and light. Hynotism
had nothing to do with it." Speaking
of the handclasp, he said : "Our friends
pleaded with us to separate, but I
could not take the advice of anyone
because I knew that we were following
God's directions. We did not eat sup
per after our return oi breakfast in the
morning. There was nothing Improper
whatever In our conduct. We were
moved by faith in God."

holding of office. In the hot competi

about him and dependent upon him, in
the duties and happiness which come
from marriuge aitd domesticity, no
man, until he Is assured In some way of
Independence from the emoluments of
office, can afford to enter public life.
The most lamentable wrecks which I
have seen In thirty odd years since I
was graduated have been the men who
have abandoned everything for the
public service, only to be thrown out by
the change of politics and to find that
their places in the professional and
business world had been occupied by
younger men, leaving them helpless and
stranded. But every town caucus, ev
