WAE'S EFFECT ON LITERATURE
Not for the tirst time, William Dean Howells. our
country's noted novelist, recently declared that
war can inspire nothing worthy in art or letters,
but that war kills literature. He once made such
a statement, rather incidentally, in the course of
a criticism of the much criticised Kipling, and he
now reaffirms it with particular reference to pres
ent conditions in Europe.
The contention of the dean of American letters
is that there is nothing in warfare to inspire last
ing poetry or prose. He admits that the Civil War
in this country called forth loads of volumes, but
he knows of but one or two of these works which
are read to-day.
The present war is. of course, inspiring glowing
newspaper stories written by graphic journalists,
and in the newspapers of the fighting nations stir
ring calls to the front are appearing. All this may
be ephemeral matter, however, —literature for a
day; not for all time.
Thus far, the great war of the nations has in
spired no literature which promises to be lasting,
so far as lias yet come to light. We are told "False
is the war no poet sings," yet we cannot quite ac
cept that as the explanation. War, perhaps, has
lost its glory, its romanticism. That may be what
is the matter. No modern Horatius stands at the
bridge across the Vistula. Our poets can get no
inspirations.
The only literature certain to survive this war
will be the literature of the historians. Poets may
sing for a while and press writers may rave on oc
casion but their works may never reach posterity.
Records of events, cold, uneolored facts about the
conflict, will without question be handed down to
future generations, and this will constitute the
great permanent part of the literature of the great
war.
TENNYSON CALLS TO ARMS
There tf'a new poem now getting wide circula
tion in flfreat Britain which promises to live and be
loved the war has passed, despite the eonten-
Jioa that wartime literature has little chance to
survive the times which inspire it. The poem is
new only in the sense that it is becoming public
property for the first time. It was written many,
many years ago, hence was not inspired by thia
particular war anyway, and cannot be considered
a product of it.
There is something uncanny about this poem. It
is one of Tennyson's whieh had been discarded.
For an unknown reason, —perhaps because of some
what faulty technique,—the former poet laureate
had not published it. The manuscript was found
recently by his son and it has now a wide distribu
tion in print. "A Call to Arms" is the title as
well as the substance of the lyric.
A voice from the grave has furnished England
with its first contemporary war poem. Tennyson,
whose poem "Britons Guard Tor • Own,'' exerted
a great influence in recruiting soldiers for the Brit
ish army in the Crimean war. has by his "Call to
Arms served to arouse British patriotism anew in
the present European conflict. The spirit of the
dead Tennyson, a mysterious but thrilling foree, is
to-day urging Englishmen to fight, impelling them
as Kipling, \\ atson and Bridges have failed to do.
It was an indirect inspiration that brought forth
Tennyson's "A Call to Arms." The words fit a
present condition which the author could not have
HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, TUESDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 1, 1914.
foreseen, a condition to which be did not mean his
appeal particularly to apply. .'
It may be a question whether, if Lord Tennyson
were poet laureate of Great Britain to-day, he
would issue a call to arms such as that whieh is now
circulating under his honored name.
TILYOU, FUK-MAKER, PASSES
The death in his Brooklyn home yesterday of
George C. Tilyou, 53 years old, took from America
another of her famous showmen. While Tilyou'«
methods of entertaining the people were far differ
ent from those of the late P. T. Barnum, they con
tained many features of originality that will recall
his name to the fun-loving public for years to eonif.
The circus was not the medium through which
Tilyou amused the multitudes but it is a safe asser
tion that the form of entertainment he did provide
reached almost as many persons as the peerless
Barnum reached. Anybody who ever has gone to
the distinctly original "Steeplechase Park" in
Coney Island, or the more recently established
"Steeplechases" in other big eastern resorts, will
connect the name of Tilyou with the thrills he has
received through the medium of the "Human
Bowl," "Razzle Dazzle," "Mystic Maze," "Down
and Out." and scores of other devices that have
given real "sensations" to pleasure-seekers.
Tilyou's "Steeplechase Park," of course, pro
vides only a part of the fun of the great play
grounds at Coney Island, but any one of the mil
lions of persons who have gone to the park will
not fail to recall the riotous merriment created
when he suddenly saw the hats torn from the heads
of a score or more of men and women and hurled
seaward by a concealed artificial breeze produced
by a Tilyou device, or by the intensely amusing
spectacle of scores of people struggling valiantly
to walk on a floor oscillating in three or four direc
tions almost at the same time.
Tilyou made and lout several fortunes in the
amusement game, but he is reported to have died
a rich man. He was the inventor of many fun
giving machines that will live after him. That
part of the great American public that has red
blood in its veins cannot but experience a feeling
of regret at the passing of this man who has done
so much to drive dull care away.
FOOTBALL AGAIN AT COLUMBIA?
The New York "World" says to-day that the
Columbia University students will meet to-morrow
to discuss the reinstatement of football at the
Morningside Heights institution where the game
has been banned for a number of years, largely, it
is understood, because of the opposition of Presi
dent Nicholas Murray Butler. President Butler is
to attend the meeting and from tkia the "World"
concludes that he will yield to the pressing de
mand of the students and let them resume the grid
iron sport.
It will be rather remarkahle if Dr. Butler weak
ens iu the determined attitude he has maintained
against football, but it is not surprising that the
students are so eager for the reinstatement of the
game. Football as played to-day is not as dan
gerous as in years gone by when almost everything
was massed plays, and perhaps the greater element
of safety that the new rules provide gives Dr. But
ler an excuse to yield gracefully.
And then, too, perhaps Dr. Butler has come to
see that the advertising football brings a college
is not to be sneezed at. He could never be accused j
of failing to take advantage of any medium for
bringing to Columbia that desirable sort of public
ity that swells the university's treasury balance.
It will soon be too late to do your Christmas shopping
early.
The war tas is all right when the other fellow has to
pay it.
The kind of peace that Mexico is having reminds us of
the Democratic party in Pennsylvania since the "Re
organieers" took hold.
The president of the Newark, X. J., Board of Education
wants to put the school teachers in uniforms. Another
indication of the growth of militarism in this country f
"Fire Companies Up in the Air," reads a headline in
the Frederick (Md.) "Post." This suggests the possibil
ity of aeroplane fire engines in the near future. And
why not?
TOLD IN LIGHTER VEIN
NO CO OPERATION
Co-operation apparently is not only essential to progress,
but a test of humanity. At least that seems to be the con
tention of S. B. Moxley, a Shelby villa fir© insurance man,
who attended a recent conference of local agents in Louis
ville. A visitor at an insane asylum, he said, wanted to
know of a husky guard if he were not 'afraid of being at
tacked by some of the more violent inmates.
"I should say not.' answered the solf-eonfHent indi
vidual. "I can handle any man in the institution with
ease."
But suppose they should co-operateV suggested the
visitor.
"If they could co-operate," airly answered the guard,
"they would not be here."—Louisville Times.

THE COMEDY SENSATION OF THE NEW YORK SEASON

"THE DUMMY"
(THE ADVENTURES OF DETECTIVE BARNEY)
By Harvey O'Higgina and Harriet Ford, who wrote "The Argyle Case"
NOTE—The title "The Dummy" may be confusing to tome patrons prior to witnessing the
performance. Therefore, the following explanation is offered.
'The Dummy" is an absorbing story of a typical American youth who impersonates a deaf mute to
recover a kidnaped girl from a gang of most sympathetic crooks. It is very exciting and very funny.
HARBISBURO is to have the original company, without change, which played 200 nights at the
Hudson theatre, New York City, to crowds of Manhattan's most cultured and critical playgoers. "The
Dummy" makes a general appeal. It delights alike patrons of the orchestra, balcony and gallery.
