An interesting oomiarian of the
literary output of IMS with Umt of
the year 1600, in pmjiorUon to the
estimated number of readers then
and now, is baaed on the computa
tion tliat there are four times aa
many readers now as in 1800. On
thia basis the only really revolution
ary change shown Is in the numlx-r
of new novels, though there has
ben an increase along othor lines.
There baa been mt iucrease hi
theology and sermona, and in bi
tory and biography. There has been
oonsldorable iucrease in books edu
cational, chuMtlcal. philologioal and
sull more In voyages and travels.
Arts, sciences and illustrated works
would soetn to have dbnlniahed.
while law, medicine and poetry have
aimmuuied to a far greater extent
Novels, on Uie other band, have
uuluplted enormously. The actual
number of new novels In 1800 was
44. The number in 1KB was 1,147.
The number of novels written and
not published as shown by tosti
mony from prominent publishing
houses Is startling. The judgment
of the experts based on the number
of works, examined la that of ama
teur novelists only about three in
every 100 manage to get their works

A well known Now York artist tolls
this story of himself:
"While ,ve were spending the sum
mer at our country home, a little girl
oalled to see my wife. As she was
engaged, I attempted to entertain
Uie child by showing bor pictures of
famous French women. The first
was Charlotte Corday. I gave a
brief account of bor life and nnudied
by saying they out her hood off! The
child caught her breath, but said
nothing. The next picture was that
of Mme. Roland. I told about hor,
and finally said, 'And they cut her
"The child's face grew rather m
credulous, but still she said nothing.
The next face was Mai lo Antoinette's.
"Oh I' she exclaimed. 'What a beau
tiful lady I How lovely alio is.' 'Yea,'
I answered, 'she wss porfucUy lovo
ly. But they cut her head off,'
This was too much. The child
arose and looking at me in Uie most
indignant way said: 'Humphl what
do you take me fort I ain't so green
s I look I' "-New York Tribune. - ;

Small bouse or (lit I Tliia la a ques
tion which baa been interesting the
middle class paterfamilias. "Out
there Are advantages, you must al
low, in a flat We can got along with
only one girl, and thus save kitchen
squabbles. Tnere are no stairs, halls,
collars, furnaces and sidewalks to
cart for, And when the buUding la
heated by steam there ia only the
Kiteiien ore to supply with ruol."
"I always want to smile when that
old plea about stairs comes up, for ia
tnseof small children there are cir
cumstances arising every day which
will necessitate going up and down
stairs, even If your suit of rooms is
all on one floor. I know one family
where the wife actually suffers for
out of door exerciae because she
dreads going up and down tho stairs.
"She Isn't obliged to, She aw take
Uis elevator." "It Is a great mistake
to conclude all flats aresuptihed with
elevator. One of the finest building
ut un wiUiin two veara in thia cftv.
a nigu toned noigbborhood, has no
elevators, and I could mention others.
As for the collars, thev are there, and
the worst of it is you have no idea of
their condition. You cannot make
sure, as in the small house, that they
are all whitewashed every spring and
tliat all the corners are free from
filth, and aa for the furnace, the beat
la seldom right Your rouma are
either too hot or too odd, unices the
janitor ia more of a model than I have
ever found. In the small house you
make sure of better light better ven
tilation, more sunshine and. best of
all, more freedom."
Leaving out thse physical oomrid-
eretioua, the small bouse in the city
comes nearer the true ideal of a borne
than the flat Edward Everett Hale
writes, "No home is a real one which
has not window on all four sldea,"
It oooms to me Mr. Halo dooa not al
low aufllcionUy for that living con-
atdornUon which goes far toward
making a home of even a basement,
but certain it Is tnat tbe more win-
dowa the more beautiful tbe abode
for the to be borne. It is a pity that
through unavoidable circumstances
the word borne in Uie city baa not
that significance tt has in the coun
try. Through continual moving
home aesociaUons are constantly
broken. "Do you own your bourn t"
asked one friend of anoUier. "No;
fashion hi bounce, or rather In locali
ties, changes so often tt is not desira
ble to buy In Uie city. We have moved
twice simply on account of tbe chang
ing neighborhood, though we liked
the houno In each case."
Thia hardly accords with Henry
Ward Boecher's idea of a borne.
which could not be perfect until
sweetened through and through with J
the experiences of the soul itself.
w ith a strong desire to establish a
real home with an individuality of
ita own, many of these unfavorable
olwtoelee could surely be removed,
out do you not know women who
shoulder the responsibilities of im-
menso houses, burdening themselves
with all tbe worry of letting out
floors for the sake of living in a grand
suite of rooms in a tony quarter rath
er than living in a small, unosten
tatious bouse in a quiet street!

"There Are more ways than one to

applies equally as well to the way
of making a living. Once Uie striv

Verdi of all self assertion that he
even expressed his regret that so

was independent of any consider

to satisfy Uie hearer that these were
