Dr. Prutz Is one of the chief workers
In the preparation of these epoch-making
volumes. He wrote the two preceding
books of the series, "The Age of Charle
magne" and "The Age of Feudalism and
Theocracy," and now we have his "Age
of the Renaissance," a period describing
the last stage of the Middle Ages as they
emerged from ecclesiastical and feudal
despotism, developing what was original
In medieval ideas by the light of classic
arts and letters, when men gradually

theeubstjtution of what grew to be mod

the disappearance of bows and arrows in
It was one of the grandest history-making
agos of the world, and well have poets
eunjr its praises. Dr. Prutz has given It a
fitting picture, and written of Its history
In a most impartial spirit, taking into ac
count that he is a professor of history in
n. German university, and therefore liable
t look upon events through Gorman spec
tacles. The present volume is elegantly bound
in blue cloth, is well printed, and con
sists of 408 pagos. Its table of content6:

pictures of battles are given, taken from
library miniatures, and the soldiers look
like brownies, with a background of ca
thedral and frowning castle walls. The
struggle for the papacy when there were
two Pope-- at once is the sort of reading
one dot not often meet with nowadays.
For 6S years the seat of the papacy re
mained at Avignon. The Popes became
more and more subservient to France.
More and more, therefore, they lost thoir
hold upon Germany. ,It was Gregory XI,
who. in 177, returned to Rome. But ho
died in 187S. His death was followed by a
scMam and the election of two rival
Popes. One went back to Avignon. The
other remained at Rome. Not until 1416
was the dispute between their successors
Bet at roHt by the council of Constanz,
France meanwhile acknowledging the
.Avignon claimant and England and Ger
many the Roman, to the scandal and
confusion . of Christendom. Church and
pope were alike discredited. Wyckllffe in
ISngland, and then Hubs In Bohemia, at
tacked the papal authority. The council
of Basel, which sat for nearly 18 yoars
CM21-4S) threatened at one time to reduce
that authority to a shadow, but was
totally baffled by a compact between the
Gorman King, Frederick III, and Pope

Poitiers (1SS61 and Agincourt (141S). which
alike hurt papal and French prestige. It

speculation what if the English power

for a time threatened both Turk and

Savonarola, the reformer, and the re
ligious Innovations which he began and
paid for with his life, are ably treated in
the closing loaves of this .volume, and
mention is made of Gutonberg and the
practical use of printing. The story of
such warlike days causes the pulse to
flow faster. People in their heart of
hearts know that all life is a battle, and1

!Tiie Man of the Hour, by Octave Thanet
With illustrations by Lucius Wolcott
Hitchcock. The Bobbs-Merrlll Company,
Once In a while there comes a novel
with a real American ring to it, and
suoh an one, it is believed, is "The Man
of the Hour," a study along the lines of
Boclal conditions, polite nihilism, socialism
and trades unionism. It holds its audi
ence nearly breathless at times, so in
tense aro the situations, while it teems
with color, plot and action. Now and
thon there is a suggestion of that stal
wart dip into the union and nonunion
labor problem, "the walking delogate,"
but its trend Is much higher.
Very few novels have such an unex
pected ending as "The Man of the Hour."
Imagine, if you please, a Mr. "Wlnslow,
millionaire manufacturer of plows In the
Mississippi Valley, marrying Princess
Olga Galltsuin, a Russian conspirator,
who was forced to leave her native coun
try because of her sympathies for tho
revolutionary party of nihilists. If ever
a man married gunpowder, Mr. "Wlnslow
did. Of course, he and hla wife ' were
miserably unhappy, as her idea of hap-
ptncfts soemea to consist oi oemg witn
her beloved nihilists and throwing an
occasional bomb at "tyrants." Their son,
John Wlnslow, is the chief figure in the
book, and while he Is yet a little boy
hlg parents differences are such that
Mrs. Wlnslow, after unsuccessfully try
ing to abduct her son, sponds the evening
of her life with her benevolent nihilists
in Switzerland, whore sho is so obliging
as to pass hence, with no other record
than of being a woman who was beauti
ful., made a god of her own sweet will,
smoked dainty .cigarettes, and-tried to
live as a persecuted saint? Her portrait
is powerfully drawn.
The childish love between two play
mates, the Wlnslow boy and little Peggy
Rutherford, is as pretty to know as to
gazjs on a pansy or a violet in bloom. In
describing Peggy the authoress remarks
that "cruelty comes to women oarly,"
and Peggy is certainly feminine. Just as
a plant expands when the sun seeks it
out and says "It's time to grow." so
Johnny Wlnslow slowly grown to be a
man who Intends to do things in the in
dustrial world, as his father did before
him. The Winslows owned a controlling
interest in the O.ld Colony Plow Company.
What a pity it is that the authoress,
in making her labor agitators talk, puts
in their mouths all too frequently "h 1"
and "d ." It spoils what would other
wise be a realistic picture. LJsten to a
talk young Wlnslow had with another
"Why don't I rua away? repeated- the
strange boy. "Only there's ma. Onee my

slow's life whon his millionaire father
dies, leaving the boy with a beggarly
$100,000 and two-thirds of the property If
he keeps that sum intact until he is 90
years old. Wlnslow, the father, knew his
son, and it Ik no surprise that the latter
benevolently threw away the larger part
of his fortune settling a strike, with the
result that the money went into the maws
of alleged labor leaders, who were up for
sale to the highest bifcder. Then young
Wlnslow became a plain workingman,
and omorged a hero. He and a bribe
taker, Tyler, occupy a good deal of. the

Over everything lay the hadow of the
great, dingy bulk of the Chicago factories.
Hooty clouds hung low over the stained thor
oughfare, roaring now with a crowd of boys
and dishevelled women. The boys were
mostly half-grown lads who had learned
English and deviltry at the public schools.
But the women shrieked out their fur' In
their native tongue. And a babel swelled
continually sbove the roofs pierced continu
ally by one English word: "Scab. Scab!" A
stockrulc was smashed.
Johnny Wlnslow looked for the center of
the storm and disoorered It; one man with
glaring eyes aad white face Seeing before a
crowd down tho middle of the street, dart
ing under horses' feet Hind worming himself
between wagons. His hat was gone, his
clothes were tern, there was bjocyi. en bis
face, but he ran with the swiftness of fear.
"Here, we'll protect you," yelled Johnny,
and the fugitive turned, his 'eyes staring
like bits of glass, going to Johnny's. A
lad of IS who worked In Johnny's shop
yelled: "Give him it with the brleks," and
more than one brick hit tho living mark.
The fugitive fell at Johnny's feet. A tiny
thread of Mood trickled down the matted
hair from the temple.
Billy threw a glanee at lbe coming
crowd, and said: "Keep back. You've kllUd

Roland of Altenburg-, by Edward Mott
Wool ley. Herbert S. Stone & Co.. Chicago,
Filled with stirring- romance and
cleanly-cut excitement, interesting to
the end. The book of 350 pages con
tains the love story of Roland Alexan
der Frederich, Crown Prince of the
imaginary Grand Duchy of Altenburg,
ordered to marry for state roasons the
Princess Theresa, of Felzenbruck. But
the Prince diplomatically declined be
cause he already loved an American
girl. Miss Katherine Barrlngton. Tho
story has a nng of "Zenda" and "The
Prldo of Jennico" in it, anJ Is all the
more welcome on that account
The action begins in New York City
where Prlnco Roland, Incognito,- and
his major-domo. Colonel von Meyer, are
on thoir way to board a steamer for
Europe, when the Prince sees a red
auto operated by Miss Barrignton, be
having outrageously. Of course, ho
rescues her from her periL and in this
prosaic fashion he madly fails in lovo
with her, yea, even to the intensity
of 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Miss Bar
rlngton thinks her adorer is Donald
Scott, and the Prince sails for his Ger
msfn castle without winning 'his ladyo
air. As luck would have it she and
a party of friends afterward sail for
Europe and soon find themselves with
in the Duchy of Altenburg-, where after
a series of romantic adventures, the
Prince and the Americans meet.
Now, In books of this sort, has the
critical reader ever noticed that tho
Prlnco rarely gets his true lovo but
is compelled to marry a neighboring
Princess, while everybody sheds tears?
In this novel, the ending- is a happy one,
for all the lovers in It are happily mar
ried to each other. The constructive
bookmaklng- Is creditable, although a
trace of the beginner's art is apparont.
For Instance, a German Prince travel

the book Is good and pure, and will find
its admirers. Here is the ending:
Katherine arose and held out her hands as
the Prince also arose. Standing with her
baek to the other, and with her radiant
face to him, she had one more word: "Rol

ball. The life of Mr. Kimball !s one of In
terest. Born and brought up In a little Maine
village, he has bad the rare training In wood
craft that only country boys are able to get.
MoK of his business life was spent as a trav

cellent reading. "Two Russian Heroes." by
Clarence Stetson, takes up a feature of Rus

The career cf Mary Mapes Dodge was ex
ceptional among 'literary workers. She has
mid that It was without a struggle from the
start, and that everything she wrote was
kindly received by the publishers. Few writ
ers of either sex with a record of 40 years ean
say as much. She was an Ideal editor of
Juvenile publication, and was of the best
as a writer for children. Her books and her
editorial work served to lift Juvenile litera
ture In this country, throughout the world.
In fact to a much higher general plane than
It had hitherto occupied. In St. Nicholas;
which she edited from the beginning. 32 years
ago. she strove to give her youthful patrons
real literature, written directly for them, to
be sure, but yet fresh and interesting, and not
merely didactic and moral, as was the earlier
fashion. Not the least of her shining merits
lsrthe opening she gave through the pages of
her magazine to dawning ability. Her death
ought to come home to every American child
as a personal bereavement.
Women are reading William Dean Howell's
novels with Increased avidity. Since the pub
lication of his latest novel. "Miss Bellard's
Inspiration." they are beginning to mspeot
that this gifted analyst of the feminine heart
has sometimes a bit of a laugh at' their ex
pense. When questioned about hia theories
and beliefs regarding womankind, the other
day at Kittery. Mr. Howells skillfully evaded
his feminine Inquisitor.
"At least" he said, smiling, "women are
not boasters. They do not go about telling
the world how clever they are and the great
things they propose to do. What a certain
lady said" to her husband could never have
been truthfully mid by her husband to her.
This young couple had an only child a baby

The South produced orators and public men
rather than literary artists, not only because
she needed statesmen to defend her I restitu
tions, but because by temperament the South
erner la a sort of demigod (be is as far as any
other man from being a demagogue), and he
prefers to stand above the eyebrows of a
crowd, demonstrating the fact in appropriate
language, to writing a bock. And the Old
South offered him more opportunities for de
veloping along this line than any other. Thus
the failure to produce creative literature came
from an Immense self-consclouoess, ayt Mrs.
L. II. Karris. The creative mind Is essentially
subjective, receptive from the outside, and
the Southerner of this period could not abne
gate his own monumental sense of personal
ity (which covered his plantation, his slave
quarters and his relation to the state) encugh
to see clearly and to tell truthfully any
thing apart from his own experience. Again,
the literary artist must be open to convic
tion, and this Is aa important limitation of
the writers of that period in the South.
They had not even the freedom of mind to
Imitate what was foreign, as was the case with
the New England Transcendentallsts. And,
finally, they lacked the patience to take palod
with their work. No one expected literary per
fection of them and with the exception of
Edgar Allan Poe, Henry Tlmrod and a few

that amateurishness which was the hallmark
of literature In the Old South. It had more
sentiment, humor and chivalry In it than ar

The "literary geography" of the "Hardy
Country." with which Thomas Hardy's map
Of Wessex hat familiarized bis readers, has
now found a pictorial parallel In the "lit
erary land;cape." To Walter Tyndale be
long all the honors of the pioneer in this
field, and the success of his experiment lead
one to anticipate that before long other landscape-painters
and water-eolorlsts wlll fol

exhibition at the Leicester Gallery. London,
a collection of "Water-Colors of Wesaex:
Thomas Hardy's Country." In which he has
admirably Illustrated the novelist's verbal
descriptions of the beautiful Wesaex country
that forms the scene of .nearly all of
Hardy's novels. The artist has worked In

One of the real, live newspaper stories of
the year appears In the September Llppin
cett's magazine, 'The Fortress," by a young
newspaperman. William Levington Comfort.
Dealing with life In Port Arthur during the
siege, the chief figures In the story are two
war correspondents, a man and a woman,
who fall In love with each other, and In
cidentally secure a few newspaper "beats."
The story Is cast In sterling mould and the
Interest is strong and human. Mr. Comfort
won his spurs In the Eastern States, and
when he left the office of the Pittsburg
Despatch to go to Manchuria as war cor
respondent he was chock-full of energy and
bristling with experience. Of course, he suc
ceeded, and all who follow the tale will read
with fascination the spirited tale of love and
war that grew out of this young reporter's
dash for Port Arthur. It breathes the air
of battle. Its descriptions of assault, re
pulse, conquest, and famine are so faithfully
pictorial that they form, really, a contribu
tion to the Inner history of the Russo-Japanese
How to Iceop yomg is one of the questions
of perennial Interest to the feminine mind.
Amelle Rives, tho noted author, who Is
said to look like a girl In her teen?, recently
told of her reply to a physician who wrote
her to sad him the secret of what he called
her perpetual youth. "I wrote back that he
must consider the cost." she said. "It Is a
coat that few of his fashionable patients
would make, for I rise at 7 or 7:30, ride or
walk la the country roads, live close to my
books, see few people, and retire at 10.
What fashionable woman could endure my
life? I remember thinking about It one
Winter morning, when I was walking along,
the crisp, crackling snow under my feet, the
fairy outline of a gossamer frost revealing
every twig of bush and tree, and I was so
Invigorated and happy I could have whistled
like a boy with delight; but If I had been
a woman of fashion 1 couldn't have endured
the silence, tho empty distances, the quiet;
why. a woman of fashion would die in my
place, and I am quite sure that I should In
hers." It Is In such solitude and close com
munion with Nature, In the home of her
childhood an old-fashioned rambling coun
try home In Albemarle County. Virginia
that much of Amelle Rive's literary work Is
done, although "Selene." recently published
by the Harpers. In which she has estab
lished her right to be ranked among tho
great poets, was written In Italy.
Apropos or tbe growing tendency to Cecry
the present-day literary output, and to speak
regretfully of tho days when Thackeray,
DlckeMP, Tennyson and George Eliot were
wrltlag, a word from the famous historian,
Justla McCarthy, is significant, since Mr.
McCarthy knew all thetse writers well, even
Intimately, and has since kept abreast of
current literature. Mr. McCarthy Is not one
of those who take a despondent view of Eng
lish literature. Ho does not think It Is going
to the dors not at all. "It Is true," he re
marked not long since, "that we have not
the old giants with us. We have much fine
talent, but not, perhaps, much real genius. It
Is the quiet sea after the billows. What 1
mean is that In literary history you have
times of great minds, and then again times
of merely gifted minds. The present time, as
I have said, is one of high average talent
rather than one of genius. The average qual
ity of English literature has never, perhaps,
been higher, and then people are reading more.
When the next flight of great geniuses comes
along there, will be a public such as even
Thackeray or Dickens did not have." Mr.
McCarthy's own literary activities have ex
tended over a period of more than 50 years.
He Is at present engaged In revising the proofs
of his addition to "X History of Our Own
Times." The new volumes, which appear on
the Harpers Fall list, will deal with events
from the diamond Jubilee In 1807 down to the
accesiktn of King Edward.
"What sort of a story would you advise
an aspiring young author to attempt In or
der most surely to gain the popular ac
ceptance?" was asked of Alfred Henry
Lewis, the author of "Wolfville." 'The Boss"
and other successful stories. "I'm not equal
to the formulation of any worth-while adr
vice on that point" was the reply. "If T
said anything. I should warn him not to
fly too high. No author Is or can be bet
ter or higher than his public. The public Is
the reason, the source of authors. The flrxt
requisition of authorship Is readers. Just aa
the first requslte of leadership Is followers.
No one Is aa author unless he Is read; no one
Is a leader unless he is followed. An author
without readers Is no author; If anything,
he's an lnk-hermlt. Wherefore. I should
urge on your aspiring young author to stay
