By the Way (Continued) The two famous novelists met at a friend's house. Turgenev spoke enthusiastically of his young daughter's new English governess, mentioning that she required the child to mend old, ragged clothes to give to the poor.

Do you consider that good ?" demanded Tolstoy. “1 certainly do," replied Turgenev;

" it makes the charity worker realize every-day needs.” “ And I think that a welldressed girl with filthy, malodorous rags

in her hands is acting an insincere farce," commented Tolstoy. “I ask you not to say that,” exclaimed Turgenev, hotly." Why should I not say what I am convinced is true?" retorted Tolstoy. “ If you say that again I will box your ears!” Turgenev cried, white with rage, and rushed from the room. A duel was narrowly averted. Afterwards these famous men became reconciled, and on his death-bed Turgenev wrote an affecting note to Tolstoy, addressing him as “ the great writer of our Russian land.”

A Cleveland man, according to the * Plain Dealer," tried to name his children so that they should not have nicknames. The eldest was named William, the next Willard, and then came Wilbert, Wilfred, and Wilmont. “Now everybody will have to speak the full names of each of these boys in order to distinguish them,” said the ingenious father. “They are all big boys now,” concludes the “ Plain Dealer," " and they are respectively known as Billy, Skinny, Buteh, Chuck, and Kid.”

A provincial British paper prints the following tribute to the activity of Government clerks in these times, with an added sarcasm as to their supposed idleness in former days :

In a stroll through town by night one may see in certain streets many men doing clerical work behind blindless windows. They are the overtimers of the Government departnients, some of which have extended to extra houses. The spectacle may satisfy the persons who used to complain that despite all the schemes for relieving the unemployed nothing seemed to be done for young men in Government offices.

George Borrow, author of the well-known book • The Bible in Spain,” which was the result of his work as a colporter for an English Bible Society, was in his youth a connoisseur in pugilistic lore and in the annals of crime. À set of books sold at auction in New York recently, “ Celebrated Trials and Remarkable Cases of Criminal Jurisprudence," was his first work and was compiled by him when trying to make his way in London as a young writer. Borrow was industrious; he got together the entire six volumes of this work, consisting of 3,600 pages, and put it through the press, in less

This volume gives a complete exhibition of the German point of view as set forth by Frederick the Great, and by leading German writers to this day.

Quotations from Bismarck, the advocate of the policy of “Blood and Iron," who contemptuously called treaties “Scraps of Paper,” Lasson, Treitschke, Hegel, Von Moltke, Von Bernhardi and many others show how, for over 100 years, the leaders of German thought have fostered and developed the War Spirit.

It contains the whole History of the War in so far as it affects the United States; every step up to the actual Declaration of War by this Country is fully treated. Especially interesting are such vital topics as : The German Spy System-Submarine Warfare - The Lusitania Case - Sale of Munitions of War-The Freedom of the Seas-Reprisals, Retaliation and Necessity-President Wilson's Reply to the Pope, August 27, 1917-Declaration of War Against Austria, etc., etc.

Under the heading “ The Modern Village Blacksmith” the New York “Sun” publishes a parody that brings Longfellow up to date. The first two stanzas read :

Under a spreading canopy
The Village “Shoffy" stands.
The “Shoff” a mighty man is he,

With large and itching hands,
And his plethoric pocketbook

Is wrapped with rubber bands.
His hair is short, and black, and slick.

His clothes are spic and span.
In his garage are satellites

Who graft whate'er they can,
But little is there left when he

Gets through with any man.
