fainted. An approaching guard then
frightened the vampire away.

The Anglu-Naion Hne, D.mand. Alwolnt, ;
Cleanliness In Fiction.
There was a discus ilon at thn Authors'' ; ,
Club the other night on that everen
thralling topic: "The Power of the '
Young Person in Anglo-Saxon Liter- '
ature," and the usual outburst ou tbe J
part of the malcontents about thequoitr
prudery of the laws that govern Englah
lictlon, permitting free use of battle.
murder and sudden death, of ruptures of
nu me commandments save one, and
the stum prohibition of any reference to
the seventh cmmand, though It dealt
with a force that produced moredramat
IcppisoiUta than all tho rest of the pas
sIiiiih put together. There was the usual
scornful talk about purltanlsm . and '
prurient prudery. One bot-headi'd
young man declared that be would not .
chafe against tho restrictions were the .
Anglo-Saxons in deod as well as word a .
more moral people than the Frenoh or-,
the KuKeluns, but fliut be ddnlcd that ;
they were. An older man, who had been
all through the period of kicking against
the pricks and of final suhmisalon, In
sisted that Anglo-Saxon literature had
not suffered because of Its limitations, '
and on the whole was stronger and bet- '
than tho French. "A publisher lure in
New York," ho declared, "allowed me his
Ixioks the other day to prove to me that
Ihe gruater part of his fortune of some- '
thing like 8J,000,(KM) had been made by
no saie 01 sots or Dickons' works at $U,
Whatever statistics you mav iret from

mtinui'd the speaker, "you-fan draw a

tflll come out without a smirch upon it"
l'hls was followed by many other In- .
4tanccs, which went to prove that the
nglo-feu.xon absolutely demanded a
lean literature in fiction, and alio that
ho lost very little by 1L Thuckernv
ried outagalnst the restraint sometimes.
hut no one fools that his novels aro the
worse for it Stevenson rails in private
at tlmuH, but he manages to create the '
the strongest stories by any living au-i
inoroi to-uny wnue ignoring tho passion
of love almost altogether. Among other "
proum ui me sort was advanced the sun-'
ceas of Robert Bonner who has madp
millions out of a perfecty clean family
story paper. A friend of his told about
Uonnor's touchstone, which he applied
to all literature submitted to him, and
through the accuracy and efficacy of
which ho has made his fortune. , "Whon
f began The Ledger," said Bonner to hia
friend one day. "I imagined an old
lady up in Wcstohestor County who has
three daughters, one twenty, one fifteen
and the othor twelve. Then I saw them
come homo from prayer-meeting about

room, and whenever a manuscript has
come to me since 1 had always tested it
by the old lady in Westchester, and if
sho thought she could road it to the girls
I usually accepted it; otherwise it was
returned promptly to the author." The
authors agreed that the success of The
Century has been due to just Buch tac
tics. And thoy also agreed that, though
certain erotio writers might have fleet

ity in this oentury's fiction it is neces

SERVANTS IN GERMANY.
On, Iturely Sees a Milrlt of Real Discon
tent Among Them.
Passing over privato servants, such as
scullery maids, washerwomen, pagos,
footmen, grooms and coachmen, we
come to two public servants, who surely
aro most useful. Tho first Is the dients-
. . ... A
mann lie is to oe louna in roa cap ana
blue blouse standing at the stroet cor
ner and waiting for patronage. Do you
want a package sent or called for, do
you want some one to gather up your
bundles in shopping as you go along, do
you want to send a bouquet, a card, a
mesBagn, here is your man. He gives
you a receipt with bis number, so that
Incase there is any fault-finding, the
chief bureau can be consulted, and tho
mistake, if possible, will be rectified.
In the country, the botonfrau answers
to much the same demands. Early in
the morning she presents herself at tbe
dilferent country houses in her section,
and then, armed with commissions of all
sorts, trudges oil to the market tow n, ro
tnrnlng later in the day with a huge
basket un bur hack.
The very national Teutonic trait of
dependence on something, be It family,
university, army, throne or what-not, as
opposed to our higher notion of com
plete independence, makes or tne Her
man servants a bettor article, so to
speak, than were they allowed too much
liberty, along with many illusive and
ilelusivedreams of speedy emancipation.
True, when long serving some ono fam
ily and this especially in tho country,
they become an integral part of that
family, as perhaps nowhore else save In
England, it Is rarely, however, even
in tho Bight of father and son, mother
and daughter in the same service, or
rather, ono family adapting itself to the
wants of another and always expecting
to continue in that service, that one
sees a spirit of real discontent. While
we may well congratulateoursclves that
in free America there Is a far greater
chance for a man to rise in the social
scale, in wealth, in reputation than
here, one may not fail to give the Ger
man servant his just due. He looks upon
his service, not as in any way a degrad
ing thing, but as an honorable calling;
tbe American, on the contrary, gener
ally but as a means to an end. E. F.
Baldwin, in Cleveland Leader.
When yon have a cold you do not
