ALSO A CHARMING WRITER.
Jean Henri Fabee la Known as DIs

Salts ef Scl.nee He Endured Many
Miseries Will Hsve a Monument,
Parts. Jean Henri Kabrs has been
called the Homer of ths Insect world.
Por fifty years he has studied Insects
and their ways more closely and con
tinuously perhspa than any other man.
Add to. this tbe fact that he ts a poet
aa well as a man of science, tbnt he
writes with peculiar charm, and It will
he nnderatood why his books about In
sects hove iirouaed the enthusiasm of
such men an Maurice Maeterlinck and
Frederic Mis tin I.
They refer to him aa the discoverer
of a uew world. He haa been com
pared to La Kontalne. whose fables
give evidence of bis love for beaata.
Their writings show the same fresh
ness, simplicity and charm. Darwin
was struck by ths patience and Inge
nuity exhibited by M. Kaliro in pene
trating the secrets of Insects, and In
tho "Origin ,of Species" he refers to
him aa an inimitable observer.
An English translation of M. 1'al.re's
book "Tbs Life of a Spider" has lately
i n published. Hs was born in ths
south of Francs, wss the son of poor
parents, and hla whole life haa been
one of uninterrupted labor.
As a lad ho taught himself to read at
night by the light of a biasing pine
knot In school he paid his tuition
fees by serving aa a choir boy, He
won a scholarship at tbs normal school
at Avignon and became a teacher,
finally rising to ths grsds of professor.
It wss while hs was attachsd to ths
lycos at Avignon that be came across
ths sntomologtcal works of Leon Du
four, and thereafter ths course of his
life was changed. Hs saw how In
complete was tbs stats of ths sclsocs
of entomology, and wbat be ssw
opsnsd to him a magnificent field of
study. Thereafter as soon as hs was
abls hs gars up teaching, devoted him
soir to ths study of insects and sn
dursd msny miseries for the sake of
He wsnt to Mrs In s cottags with
rose tinted walla and green blinds at
the little village of Serlgnan. on the
road from Orange to Valreas. For
years tbs neighboring peasants knew
little of him. Then one day they
learned that a great scholar was dwell
ing am. nnc thorn, and now he Is the
glory of the village.
He haa uacd Incredible patience and
Ingenuity, guided by sympathy, la
st inlying Insists. Observation and
Mu.lv In the laboratory did not tell
him what he wanted to know It waa
necessary for him to watch the free
Insects In their natural environment.
What he aaw he described aympa
tlietlcully. poetically, vividly. Ills
writings Interest the general reader as
much aa the eutomologlat. He de

of the bee mid the wickedness of the
preying mantis, that tierce Ineect
which devours Ita wives and charms
Its victims with what the entomolo
gists call Ita spectral pose.
Maeterlinck wrote of him: "He de
voted to the task of aurprlslug their
little secrets, which are the counter
part of the greatest mysteries, fifty
years of an existence solitary, mls
uiiilcrstiM.il poor, often approaching
want, but Illumined each day by the
Joy which Is brought by a truth, wbtch
la the human Joy above all others. Lit
tle truths, you will say, those which
are offered to us by the ways of a
spider or a cricket. There are no
little truths. There exists but one, of
which the mirror to our uncertain eyes
seems broken, but euch fragment of It
whether it reflects the evolutlou of s
star or tbe night of a bee, contains
the supreme law."
M. ini.ic Is now ninety Honors
have come to bliu. His fame Is wide
spread. He Is tin longer able to pur
sue bis studies. He sits day after day
smoking his pipe in tbe dining room
of his cottage.
Not long ago Frederic Mistral, the
famous octogenarian poet of Provence,
made an appeal In hla behalf ou ths
ground that he was In a lamentable
condition of undeserved porerty. This
M. I'abie denied. Tbe French govern
ment granted tbe aged entsjhologlst a
literary pension of $.100 a year. Later
still the Academy of Sciences or Francs
swarded him a prise of ths value of
4.000 francs. A minister of state has
paid an official visit to him. and It
la proposed to erect s ststue In his
honor at Avignon.
