XXIV. THE AGE OF TEXXTSOX AXD
BY VIDA D. SCUDDER.
The age of Tennyson and Browning 15
practically the Victorian age of English
literature. To name a period from a sov
ereign may seem arbitrary and foolish,
hut It Is often convenient, and In this case
It has really come significance. The work.
of Tennyson and Browning begins only
a few years before the accession of the
Queen, and lta whole sweep and power Is

The Victorian period, however. Is quite
distinct In character from the period that
went before; separated from it by a com
plete change In spirit and the emergence
of a new set of controlling Ideas. Prom
the time of the French Revolution, at the
end of the ISth century, to the deaths of
Keats, Shelley and Byron, which hap
pened between 1S20 and 1825. English poet
ry had soared and sung like Shelley's eky
lark In the free heaven of idea Ism.

When the music of these wondrful
singers had ceased there followed a short
lull In which nothing of gr.at inter.st
was written; then in the decade bc.wten
1S30 and 1840, literature rose again. Car
lyle, Newman, Thackeray and Dickens,
as well as Tennyeon and Browning, all
made their first appearance before the
English public in these 10 yeais. Litem-,
ture thus rose in a twofold glory, of
poetry and prose and Indeed, of the two,
prose fiction and essay Is perhaps the
more signillcant art-form of the modern
world. It has at least advanced through
modern times step by step with poetry,
and ha reached an amplitude and express
iveness never known before. The life
of modern poetry is vigorous and notable,
hut it does not shine, with a radiance that
almost obliterates all else, as it did in the
days of Spencer and Shakespeare, or in the
days of "Wordsworth and Shelley. The
great names of the Victorian period, leav
ing out the novelUts, are Carlyie. Newman.
Buskin; quite as much as Tfrnnyson and
Browning, and Clough and Rossettl; they
are also names of men equally at home in
either form of expression, like Matthew
Arnold and William Morris.
But is it a cause for gratitude that we
should have had a great poetry at oil In
the Victorian period. For poetry belocg
to the ages of faith and enthusiasm, and
ours has seemed to many people an age
of doubt and cautious experiment. Poe'ry
rings the clarion note of joy in life, and
too often it has seemed as if pessimism
and weariness were Invading the modern
world. Poetry is nourished by the unsefn
forces of emotion and aspiration, and our
practical age has been eager above all in
the discovery and application of the me
chanical forces of physical nature. Sci
ence, rather than imagination has ruled
the day. And yet Sfe have needed poeta.
and they have arisen no one poet, per
haps, like Milton In the l"th century, oi
Dante In the 14th, but real and great poets
who will not die. Surely this means that
humanity has not become less sensitive ti
the spiritual universe as control over the
forces of the physical universe widens and
Tennyson and Browlnlng are doubtless
the greatest poets of the Victorian era.
They began to write first; they kept on
longest: their work had more volume,
more variety in its beauty, more express
iveness, than that of any other men. Their
first books struck quite new notes. Can
we say that now of any one among the
joung poets who are asking our attent.on
year by year?
Tennyson's first volume came out In
1S33. The poems in It bore the mark of
youth, but already they showed that
fairy fineness of ear which was to char
acterize him to the end. Several of them
expressed the mood of Inward brooding
which has so belonged to our century.
In all, the poet reached that final tcst
of a poet's genuineness a melody wholly
Individual. In the same year appeared
Browning's "Pauline," and It was an
achievement yet more significant, for it
handled a new method and achieved a
new end the clore self-revelation of char
acter through the dramatic monologue.
From this time the two great poets con
tinued to produce for upward of 50 years.
So far as art forms went, their develop
ment was In curious contrast. Browning
began with drama; soon discarded it as a
formal, artistic method, passed through a
brilliant series of dramatic monologues to
that unique epic which marks the high
water of his achlevemnt. "The Ring ana
the Book"; then, during his later years,
produced a number of narrative poems,
more or lens Ironic In character; while his
old age was finally marked by a revival of
lyrical passion and power. Tennyson's de
velopment almost reversed this order. He.
too. attempted the drama, but late In life
and without striking success. His early
years were given to lyric and narratlv.
and his work culminated In that profound
revelation of the sufferings and asplratlors
of his own spirit, his "In Memoriam." De
spite the divers experiments made by each,
we may safely say that the genius of
Browning was primarily and permanently
dramatic, for even his lyrics and narra
tives are, suffused by dramatic instincts.
while the work of Tennyson Just as clear
ly is lyrical In its Inmost impulse.
"While the great masters wrote, other
poets ros and fell. Between 1SS) and 1SC0
appeared those thoughtful poets of the
inner life. Matthew Arnold and Arthur
Hugh Clough. They represent the mood of
a period deeply affected by the tractarian
movement and by the widespread religious
unrest that was affecting the nation. Di.
satisfied with the vague. If high spiritual
pantheism of "Wordsworth and Shcllev.
powerfully drawn toward Christianity, yet
unable either to accept or reject It. these
poets sung In a piercing elegiac strain the
sorrows, the consolations, the resolutions
of the inner life.
"The sea of fntt'a
Was once. too. at the full, and round earth's
Lay like the folds of a bright blrdle curled:
But now I only hear
Its melancholy. Ions, withdrawing roar.
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shlnsles of the world."
So wrote Arnold, with mournful elo
quence and policed art. In his "Dover
Peach." and Clough echoed the plaint In
lines pulsing with perhaps more entirely
sincere passion. If less perfectly and fe
"Eat. drink and die. for we are souls be
reaved; Of all the creatures under heaven's high copo
We are most hopeless who had once most
And most bellefles who had once blleved."
They nrose. these poets of the desires
and regrets of the spirit; but their day
was not long, though they left vers; that
tor certain thoughtful, wistful p?ople will
never lose Its power. Clough died In 18S1;
a little later and Arnold had turned away
from poetry, singing as his swan song his
beautiful "Thyrlsis." an elegy on his
friend, and had devoted himself to his Il
luminating work as a critic In prose. Ten.
nyson and Browning had been before the
public for 15 years when these poets be
gan to write; their poetic expression con
tinued for nearly 30 years longer.
About the time when Arnold and Clough
fell on silence there made Itself heard in
our poetic literature a new cry the cry
for beauty, evolutionary science, with
Its passion for Investigation; the democ
racy, with Its enthusiasm for averages,
were In full swing; but there arose a pro
test not to be subdued, a protest that as
serted as the rightful attitude wonder
rather than Investigation, and devoted It
self to the quest of the rare, the strange,
the lovely, rather than to the analysis of
me commonplace. The prose writings of

in our age of prose. Tct they were exotics
rather than natural growths. Such poems
as Rossettl's "Rooe Mary," Swinburne'
'Atlanta In Calydon," or Morris' "Eafihi .
Paradise" could express only a few erf the
manifold cravings of modern life, afltf
these not probably the most significant.
This school, too. soon waned. By 18S0 Ro.-
settl wrote n more; Morris was turnetf
coclallst, and no longer "the Idle dreamer
of an empty day." but a vigorous, practi
cal reformer, was trying to recreate thW
actual world In an Image of beauty.
Swinburne, Indeed, still Hvoe, yet It Is fair
to say that, after comparative youth, he
found no new note to strike; his poetry
slmp.y repeated a familiar music, and
since he was poet rather by virtue of mel
ody than of noble thought or passion, his
day of real power was brief.
Still, ride by side, the two stronger spir

The largest cargo of steel rails ever
shipped from an American port has Just
gone dn the big British steamer Samoa
from Baltimore for Vladlvostock. It com
prises 8634 tons, conslsang of 25,932 rails,
valued at 51S1.3o0. Each rail weighs more
than TOO pound;, and in addition the ship
takes SS6 tons of coal, 125 tons of fresn
water, and man) tons of provisions. In
stowing the cargo, there were used 12S.00U
feet of lumber, SOOO wooden wedges, 17
cords of wood, and 300 pounds of nails.
The ship's draft was 24 feet at sailing.
The first cargo tf rails from this country

The British bark Lydgate will not finish
loading before tomorrow. The vessel is
built In compartments, and It requires
more time to load her than it does ro
load the ordinary "tank" which carries
grain round the Horn. The Plnmore has
finished discharging ballast, and will be
loaded as rapidly as possible. The East
African has shifted over to the east side
of the river, and while she Is stilt in
charge of the United States Marshal,
there will be no delay In loading her. If
the case Is not settled by the time she Is
ready for sea, bonds will be given, and she
will proceed, leaving the lawyers to fight
it out afterwards. Moit of the other
ships are working ballast or wheat, and
nearly all of them will -ret out of the
river before the end of the month.

morning issued the followirte- dlnrjoich t-
I celved from Lord Roberts:

therm selves under a heavy fire from guns
which Ihe Boers had placed In a well

"Our beavy guns of the nava l andMieavy
artillery," which had purposely been in the
front part of the column, weit- hurried to
the assist xnce of the mounted Jnfantny as
fart as ox en and mules could travel over
the great rolling hlll.n surrounding Pre

sion, and afer a few rounds drove the
enemy from their ponitlons.
"The Boers -ben attempted to turn our

but th days now am very short In this
part of the world: and. after learly two

is berween Hamilton's and French's col
umns, and Gordon Is watching the right
flank of the main force not far from
the railway bridge at Irene Station,
which was destroyed by the enemy. Our
casualties. I hope, are very few."
Throughout the length and breadth of
the country the news of the fall of Pre

recollection that In recent European wars,

In London the Mansion House and the
War Office almost Instantaneously be
came the centers for JuKIant throngs.
Flags appeared as If by magic, and the
traffic had to be diverted through other
streets. Hatless and coa'tless men and
boys ran through the city alleys to see
for themselves the bulletins announcing
the good news, and staying to Join In
the thunder of cheers or add their voices
to the Joyful slnglnjr "God Save the

on top of omnibuses and Aldermen from
the windows of the Mansion House en
couraged the crowds to still greater ef
forts. The premature report of the fall
Oa the Boers' stronghold did not seem to
have taken the edge off the day's celebration.-
Roberts' Six Miles Spruit dispatch was
hastily printed by the "Extras" before
the Union Jack of the War Office was
hauled up the flag? taff and the brief mes
sage was passed from mouth to mouth.
"Pretoria Is occupied." Those who had
had a chance to read Roberts' account of
the resistance encountered yesterday were
at the moment commenting on the prob
ability of a fierce fight before the city
was occupied, and were wondering at the
Boers' capabilities to make such a de
termined stand when Pretoria was hem
med in on all sides.
The presence of General French north
of the Boer capital came as a surprise
and explained the Commander-in-Chief's
retriever dispatch anent the position of
the energetic cavalry leader. It was evi
dent that Roberts had delayed attacking
until all his column was ready to co
operate, but even when Roberts wired
last night that this wns accomplished,
there seemed a possibility of some fight
ing, so when the next dispatch was given
out It came as a surprise.
The latest dispatcher from a represent
ative of the Associated Press at Pretoria
dated June 3. quoted General Botha a
"So long as we can count on our thous
ands of willing men. we must not dream
of retreat or throwing away our Inde

regulations appointing a special commit

tary control for that of th committee.
General Lucas Meyer, addressing the
burghers on the square, urged them to all
stand fast. Thus, though their efforts
were futile, it Is evident a few faithful
Boer Generals worktd desperately to re

CHICAGO. June 5. Tne Boer delegates
arrived here this morning, and were Im
mediately taken in charge by a reception
committee, headed br Mayor Harrison nmi
conducted. t& th,e, .AjiaJtortum jaot.eU The
delegates received the news of the fall of
Pretoria calmly. Mr. iTscher remarking:
"The news does not come as a surprise.
The fighting will continue." Mr. Weesels
said that the fall of the Transvaal capital
meant there would no fonger be organised
resistance on a large scale to Lord Rob
erts, but from now on. the burghers woulc
pursue guerrilla tactics.
Hartford Goes te Earoe.
NEW YORK. June 3. A special to the
Tribune from Washington, says:
The frigate Hartford, which has Just
made the straight-away voyage from San
Francisco to Newport News, is to be or
dered to Europe to complete the education
of her crew, who shipped from the Pacific
Coast as landsmen under a four years'
enlistment. Their cruise around Cape
Horn gave them something more than a
rudimentary knowledge of maritime life
and after the run across the Atlantic
they will probably be fit for regular war
When the Hartford reaches the French
Coast next month, she will be the flag
ship of a squadron of training ships In
European waters lawrer than ever hefnre
assembled abroad by the United States.
The others will be the Dixie, now on her
way to the Mediterranean from Manila;
the Buffalo, the Essex and the Lancaster.
FrelsrUt Tia.te Demorallaatlon.
NEW YORK, June 5. The Times says:
"General Eastern freight agents of lines
west of Chicago, who have heretofore re
fused to accept busineas at cut rates,
went through the wholesale district ves.
i terday and solicited business of every
xuna at tne lowest rates they could make
to suit the shippers, without regard to
the presidents' agreement. The offers ot
these agantS constitute the first nnon vn-
, lat-'on of the presidents' agreement In this
city. When It became known that some
j of the Western lines had offered to take
business at reduced rates, the result was
that all the other lines took the same
. step, and the complete demoralization of
1 rates on west-bound business originating In
Eastern territory is now' an aesured fact."
TRUTHS EASILY DIGESTED.
Concerning: a. Method of Cmrlncr Dya
pcpsln. and Stomach Troubles.
Dyspepsia and Indigestion are considered
incurable by many people who do not real
ize the advance made in modern medloal
science, and because by the "old methods
and remedies a cure was rarely, If ever,
Dyspepsia Is now cured as readily aa any
What the dyspeptic wants Is abundant
nutrition, which means plenty of good,
wholesome, well-cooked food and some
thing to assist the weak stomach to di
gest It. ThS is exactly the purpose for
which Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are
adapted, and this Is the method by which
they cure the worst cases of Dyspepsia.; in
other words, the patient eats plenty of
wholesome food, and Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets digest It for him. In this way the
system Is nourished and the overworked
stomach rested, because the tablets will
digest the food whether the stomach
works or not. One of these tablets wlll
digest 2000 grains of meat or eggs.
Your druggist will tell you that Stuart's
Dyspepsia tablets Is a remedy sold on Its
merits, and Li the purest, safest and
cheapest remedy sold for stomach
troubles, and every trial makes one more
friend for this excellent preparation.

Food is Repulsive
to the stomach, that is irritated
and sensitive. Nervous disor
ders of the brain irritate the
stomach nerves making it weak
and easily deranged. That's
why so many people who suffer
from headache have weak stom
achs. All nervous troubles,
whether of the brain, stomach
or heart yield most readily to
Dr. Miles' Nervine.
"Starting' from a small spot In ray brain
the pain would steadily increase until k
seemed that my head would split open. I
would be deathly sick at the stomach, would
vomit terribly and many times have gone
from 24 to 3& hours without food or drink.
After suffennr from these spells for 13 years
was completely cured by six bottles ot Dr.

FALLING HAIR STOPPED.
Baldness Cured oy Destroying: the
Paraalte Gerra That Canses It.
Baldness follows faring hair, falling
hair follows dandruff: and dandruff is the
result of a germ digging its way into the
scalp at the root of the hair, where It
saps the vitality of the hair. To destroy
that germ Is to prevent aa well as to
cure dandruff, fal ing hair, and, lastly,
baldness. There is only one preparation
known to do that, Newbro's Herplclde. an
entirely new, scl.ntlc dlcoery. "Wher
ever It has been tried It has proven won
derfully successful. It can't he otherwise,
because it utterly destroys the dandruff
germ. "You destroy the cause, 5011 re-
