THE LITERARY NEWS.
Charles G. Leland Dies in Florence.
On March 20 there died in Florence a writer
best known as the author of the "Hans Breit-
mann Ballads," which published in the early
sixties in Philadelphia were phenomenally
popular and imitated far and wide. Charles
Grodfrey Leland was born in Philadelphia in
1824, and from his tenth year devoted himself
Ko literature. He was by profession a lawyer,
-and made a reputation besides as campaigner,
^traveller and writer on many subjects. He
was an authority on folk-lore. In his early
.years he had a German nurse who was a stu-
'dent of magic and from her he first acquired
the interests which later made him a delver
in recondite knowledge of many kinds. He
"went through Princeton College and then
travelled extensively in Europe, where he
learned the German he so successfully trav-
estied in the Hans Breitmann books, of which
there were five volumes, originally published
by the Petersons. In his travels he made a
special study of gypsies. His tastes were
tnost varied, and every subject he studied with
"enthusiasm and thoroughness. He was one
of the first to advocate industrial education in
the public schools, and several of his books
deal with phases of that subject. Mr. Leland
was never strong, and as European climate
and conditions agreed better with him than
American surroundings he spent almost all of
the last thirty years abroad. Many of the
best known literary people were among his

If you had given me the kiss I craved
At our last parting, placed your hand in mine,
Or even for one moment laid your head
To rest upon the heart that ached for you,
I should have faced my fate with stouter soul,
And walked with firmer feet to meet my doom.
It was not much I asked! Not much for you,
So rich in all I lacked, to give or grant.
And I, poor, desolate, and most forlorn,
Should for such grace have blessed you all my days.
Now, neither kiss, nor tender clasping hand,
Nor e'en the gift of your whole self could save
This wand'rer, shipwrecked on the sea of life.
Who. passing by your door, says only this
"You are no richer, dear, for that day's thrift,
While I am made the poorer for all time."
(Doubleday, Page.) From "Verses by a Mother and
RuDYARD Kipling's New Estate. Bate-
mans, Mr. Kipling's new estate in England,
is four miles from any railway station and
the author may look with some confidence for
freedom from excursionists. "The house,"
The London Express says, "is a perfect ex-
ample of the Jacobean period, and dates from
1634. It is built of stone, and contains some
beautiful carving, including massive oak stair-
cases. It stands in beautiful gardens, and at-
tached to it are some acres of rich farm land.
The estate and the house have cost the poet
several thousand pounds. The nearest village
Burwash is a mile away, while the country
round is as pretty as can be found in Sussex
or in the neighboring county of Kent. The
only distraction, unless Mr. Kipling continues
his village gun club movement, will be trout
No More Novels from George Meredith.
"Mr. George Meredith will," says the
Philadelphia Times, "write no more novels.
He is now an old man, who has worked very
hard and is surely entitled to rest. All the
same, the assurance that we shall never again
have the joy of sitting down to cut the pages
of a new Meredith novel is saddening. Mr.
Meredith is by no means in ill health, and did
he so desire he is as capable of writing an-
other 'Lord Ormont' as he ever was, but he
feels that he has done his life's work and
leaves the field free to other men."
Mrs. Humphry Ward's Profits. The
amount of money Mrs. Ward received from
Harper's Magazine for the serial rights of
"Lady Rose's Daughter" is an interesting sub-
ject of current comment. Miss Jeannette L.
Gilder, an experienced literary agent, surr
mises that, as the book rights of the novel
also went to the Harpers, in accordance with
an inflexible rule of the house, Mrs. Ward
could have received no less than $25,000 for
the serial rights. Adding to this her royalties
on the sales of the book, which, she says,
promise to be enormous, it is Estimated that
Mrs. Ward will reap a tidy profit of over
$150,000 on "Lady Rose's Daughter." No
living author has ever received as much. Miss
Gilder asserts that "there is no doubt that
Mrs. Humphry Ward is the best paid of living
novelists." The Harpers, following their cus-
tom, are reticent as to the figures in the case.
THE LITERARY NEWS.
G. & C. Merriam & Co. have a book al-
ways useful in their "Unabridged Webster's
Dictionary." There is no better investment
for any family.
A. Wessels Company have a cheerful story
of love and vi^ar entitled "Flowers of the
Dust," a story of the Franco-Prussian War,
by John Oxenham ; a second edition of W. R.
H. Trowbridge's "Eglee," a story of the
French Revolution ; "The Game of Life," a
volume of fables, by Bolton Hall; and Grant
Allen's world famous historical guides to the
celebrated continental cities of Europe.
G. P. Putnam's Sons^ bearing in mind that
the season of travel is upon those lucky ones
not tied to desk or other drudgery, call spe-
cial attention to their delightful series en-
titled Our European Neighbors. Frank, viva-
cious, entertaining and discerning accounts
cire given by people specially fatted of the life
of town and country in Denmark, France,
Germany, Russia, Holland, Switzerland,
Spain and Italy, and several other volumes
are in preparation. The books are neatly
gotten up and fully illustrated. No better
little parting gift could be given to a friend
who tells you which country he is speeding
The Home Publishing Company have an-
other book sure to be popular in "The Golden
Rapids of High Life," by Richard Henry
Savage. We give an extract from it else-
where which shows the verve with which it is
written. This house goes steadily on making
a fortune out of Archibald Clavering Gunter'-.
novels, which are read and reread, because
they are amusing, entertaining and instruc-
tive. It was indeed fortunate for Mr. Gunter
that he found it difficult to find a publisher
for "Mr. Potter of Texas" and "Mr. Barnes
of New York." He knew they would sell and
he published them himself, and has made a
success of many others since then.
McClure, Phillips & Co. have some ex-
cellent books, and really expect there are
some people who really read something be-
sides novels. Charles Wagner, the author of
"The Simple Life," has written "The Better
Way," indicating how the doctrines of "The
Simple Life" may be applied to our every-
day existence; "Life and Destiny" contains
the most telling thoughts selected from Felix
Adler's spoken and written discourses; E. J.
Dillon has followed Maxim Gorky's career
and writes with authority upon Russian
manners and customs ; and "Charles di
Tocca," by Cale Young Rice, is a notable ad-
dition to American dramatic verse.
Lemcke & Buechner, 812 Broadway. New
York, have just brought out in the Mono-
graphs on Artists series a volume on "Leon-
ardo da Vinci," by Adolf Rosenberg, trans-
lated by J. Lohse. The volume contains 128
illustrations and, like its predecessors, is
handsomely printed. The author has followed
closely the general scheme of the series, name-
ly, while endeavoring to maintain a scientific
thoroughness of treatment also to avoid over-
elaboration of detail which would make the-
work unintelligible if not distasteful to the-
general reader ; hence the series has interest
for the professional artist as well as value for
the layman, a combination that is rarely found
combined in popular treatises on art.
Houghton, Mifflin & Co. have just ready
"The Mannerings," a new story of country
life, by Miss Alice Brown, author of "Mar-
garet Warrener," etc., the plot of which in-
volves a double love story which is said to be
ingenious; "The Legatee," by Alice Prescott
Smith, a story of life in a Wisconsin lumber
town, its labor antagonisms, and the catastro-
phe of a forest fire ; "Young People's History
of Holland," by Dr. William Elliot Griffis,
author of "Brave Little Holland," etc. ; "The
Enjoyment of Art," by Carleton Noyes, whose
purpose is to set forth the nature and the
meaning of a work of art ; the second and
concluding volume of "Correspondence of the
Colonial Government of Rhode Island, 1723-
1775." edited by Gertrude S. Kimball ; also,
revised editions of "Charles Eliot, Landscape
Architect," and of Professor James M. Hop-
pin's "Great Epochs in Art History."
Little, Brown & Company generously pro-
vide fiction for the rapidly approaching idle
season. "A Rose of Normandy," by William
R. Wilson, is a romance of France and Can-
ada in the reign of Louis xiv. ; in "A Domi-
nant Strain," by Anna Chapin Ray, the hero-
ine marries a Puritan with a musical tem-
perament to reform him ; a misunderstanding,,
a divorce and a reconciliation furnish the
theme for Helen Milecete's clever society
novel entitled "A Detached Pirate;" "Bar-
bara, a Woman of the West," by John H.
Whitson, is a distinctively American novel ;
and "Love Thrives in War," by Mary Cath-
erine Crowley, is a pretty romance of th
stirring days of 1812. A. F. Wilson has an
absorbing industrial novel in "The Wars of
Peace ;" and it is indeed good news that there
is to be a popular edition of "Truth Dexter,"
one of the very best novels of the past two
D. Appleton & Co. have among their new-
est biographical books "More Letters of
Charles Darwin," edited by Francis Darwin,
uniform with "The Life and Letters of Hux-
ley;" "Personal Reminiscences of Prince Bis-
marck," by Sidney Whitman, already in its
second edition ; "Life of Horace Greeley," by
William A. Linn, formerly managing editor
of the Evening Post; and "A Virginia Girl
in the Civil War," edited by Myrta Lockett
Avary. Maxwell Gray's "Richard Rosny"
had three printings before publication and
promises to be a great seller, and it is really
a novel of great merit. "The History of
Puerto Rico," by R. A. Van Middeldyk, is
added to the Expansion of the Republic Se-
ries; and Appleton's Business Series now of-
fers "Funds and Their Uses," "The Work of
Wall Street" and "Trust Finance." Among
the latest fiction are "The Stirrup Cup," by
J. Aubrey Tyson ; "For a Maiden Brave,"
by Chauncey C. Hotchkiss ; and "A Whale-
man's Wife," by F. T. Bullen.

"Miss Weld, the niece of Lady Tennyson

little volume set down in good taste and with
loyal affection various reminiscences of her

naturally admiring ones without exception,
and it is, in truth, a very good, sincere and
kingly Tennyson whom she presents to our
liking. Of the poet's brothers, Horatio Ten-
nyson and Charles Tennyson Turner, Miss
Weld has many engaging memories for two
gentler souls never lived. Kindness to all
the world even to the little wild birds that
the author of 'Letty's Globe' fed all the year
round in his beloved garden was the simple
rule of their lives. As for Miss Weld her-
self, it is not uninteresting to Americans to

lionaire class ; how parlors and bedrooms are
taken care of; how preparations are made for

the domestic affairs, as regards the direction
of servants, are administered. The author
was for some time superintending house-

commonplaces for granted, we can promise
every one, whether he knows Philadelphia or
not, a thoroughly 'good time' in the reading
of 'The Philadelphians.' The book is sat-
urated with 'local color' (this expression has
come to be almost in ill repute; but the thing
it stands for, when well done, always en-
hances the interest of book or story), indeed
'local color' may almost be said to be the
reason of this book though the character

Gorteen, the small, fruitful, and Protestant,

produces Martin Hynes, Scotch-English-
Irish, who at thirty-five is good looking, has
a long curled moustache and ambition to pose
as country gentleman at Hillside, while the
ledger tells an unflattering tale. There is one
scene in the story that is unforgettable in its
realistic sordidness, the scene in which Mar-

herself listens at the keyhole. Mr. Bullock's
