THE AGE OF TEXXTSOX AXD BROWXING. 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 Included within the 50 yeare from ISM to 1S90. 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. Jr06e had been vigorous during thesfl great SO yeari. but &ult2 subordinate :0 poetry The day was td the dreamer 01 fireams', Hfid seer of vision-attd whtt. visions they were that Shelley and Ktais beheld! 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 deepens. 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 shore 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 licitously phrased: "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 hope. 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.

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 its held on their way.

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 for Denmark will go from Baltimore on the British steamer Cromarty. Grain Fleet "Worklnjr. 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.

LAST MARCH OPPOSED. Roberts Saw Hard Fl;atlns; Before He Reached Pretoria. LONDON, June 6. The "JVar OfOce this morning issued the followirte- dlnrjoich t- I celved from Lord Roberts: "Sir Miles Spruit. S:30 P. Ml. Jun. a . I We started this morning at dftybrealc, and marched about 10 mn in. si -vcu. Spruit, both 'banks of which were occu , lied by the enemy.

"O from the south bank and pursued then. nearly a mile, when they found therm selves under a heavy fire from guns which Ihe Boers had placed In a well concca Vd commanding position. "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 toria. The guns were support 1 by Stev enson's brltade of Fole-Tarew's divi sion, and afer a few rounds drove the enemy from their ponitlons. "The Boers -ben attempted to turn our left flank.

"The Gurds brigade J? eru! near the I southernmost fort by whi;h Pretoria Is defended, and less thsn four miles from the town. French, with the Third and Fourth cavalry brigadss, and Hutton's New South Wales Mounted Rifles, are north of Pretoria. Sroadwood'B brigade 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 toria spread like wildfire. Based on the recollection that In recent European wars, the Occupation of Jhf nmv Mr!nl ! nlfled the end of hostilities. Roberts' tele gram to the War Office was taken uni versally to mean the practical finish of the war which has tried Great Britain's military resources as they never were tried before. 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 Queen." Hats hoisted from thousands of heads were waved In exultant hands. Old men 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 saying: "So long as we can count on our thous ands of willing men. we must not dream of retreat or throwing away our Inde pendence." General Botha. It Is added, annulled the regulations appointing a special commit tee to preserve order, substituting mili 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 sist the overwhelming force of Roberts army. The War Office has Information that one of the first things done by Roberts after the occupation of Pretoria ws to d'rect General French to rellevr the British prisoners confined at WaervaL V - AT THE HOTELS.

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 ship duty. 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, obtained. Dyspepsia Is now cured as readily aa any other disease. 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.

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. Miles' Nervine.'' Mrs. J. M. Yhitz, JU Druo Start, Williams ton, Mick The World's Jsjedkiae.

'"-"'lioiSiQititiei 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- -asnm niiiiiiiiiiiHii ranye.
