and pleasure eouhl bo counted in It, an Is
doiio in London, Now Yoik would rank
next to London among tho world's cities,
and not very far behind it. Tho circle
of cities and suburbs which aro prnc

Thames at its western entrance to Lon

is no elevation to compare with Hoboken

Tho annexed table, therefore, presents

A very narrow strip of Connecticut,
within tho limits, and, of course, the
federal employees at Sandy Hook and
elsewhere, aro omitted. But if any
critio objects to the thirty mile cir
cuit, let him describe a tweuty mile
circuit on tho map and he will rind
all tho considerable cities within it, and
the aggregate still far above U.000,000.
And, contrary to popular opinion, the
metropolitan area Is gaining population
faster than any other in the world, un
less Chicago be an exception. Here is
the per cent, of growth of the principal
places in the twenty mile circuit in tho
decade of 1880-00: New York, 25.02:
Brooklyn, 42.110: Jersey City. 8.V02; Pat
ersou, 53.3U: Passaic, 09.45; Orange.
42.09; Newark, oM.20, and many smaller
places at a much greater rate.
One fact '.vhich astonishes even tlio
New Yorkers who have not made a study
of it is that there is yet so very much
room for growth within tho metroiioli-
tan district. Accustomed to think and
speak of Manhattan island as a "natural
land monopoly," "an overcrowded
hive," many long residents in tho city
do not know that there aro still on the
northern prong of tho island miles on
miles of timbered hills and secluded
vales almost uninhabited, and similar
regions of far greater extent on Long
Island and in Now Jersey.
If the general average for the nrea be
maintained for twenty years, tho "Great
er Now York" of 1010 will exceed London
In population. .Now York and Brooklyn
aro rapidly approaching a union. That
consummated, the Now York of 1010 will
bo as completely a mitt as London Is,
with a population not far from 4,000,000.
'Names and numbers still have such an
luiltleiicu on the popular mind that both
cities will no doubt find it profitable to
unite "to beat Chicago," if for no other
reason. J. H. Bi:aui.c.

nothing on a small scale, ami his fun is
of a coolness ami giimncss that seem tho
play of surface moods in a Titnu." Fur
ther on ho calls cei tain of the poems "un
utterably delightful," which Is prniso
enough, coming from such a source.
Mr. Ware comes of an old Mas-saclm-setts
futility and was bom at Hartford
May 21), 1841. Ho served through tho
entire war, and was mustered out ns a
captain in the Iowa cavalry. Ho studied
law ami was admitted to tho bar in 1871
at Fort Scott, Kan., where ho still ro
ubles. Ho lias been state senator eight
years, commissioner to tlio Yorktown
and Washington centennial celebrations,
was appointed major general of tlio
Kansas state troops and has held many
other honorary positions.
His work in the literary world has
been in tho Hue of vigorous, masterly
verse, which hits had a wide circulation
and been translated into many lan
guages. May 80, 1880, ho was appointed
to deliver the Memorial Day poem at
Arlington, which he did beforo tlio pres
ident, cabinet and tlio great audience.
In all his writings Mr. are is intense
ly sympathetic with tlio toiler. His
"Washer woman's Song" lias met witli a
popularity given to but few poems of

Worked a woman full of hope,

welcome in almost overy written tonguo
ami in every land. "Tlio Tobacco Stein
mers" is another song of labor that is rt
favorite, while "John Brown" is found
in even school reader, and is given by
critics as tlio liest ever written on tho
subject. Then there is much in it semi
humorous vein, with a big, hearty satire
if tho phrase isadinlssiblo thatnwak
ens an admiration for tlio versatility of
the writer. These aro naturally of n
more local applfc.ition, but find it wel
come in every paper and magazine of ills
But writing is secondary with Mr.
Ware. Ho is first of all a successful
lawyer and politician. On tho cars,
while being cariiel to tho scene of a
political rally, arm) reunion or session
of court, the poems that add so much to
his fame and popularity aro comtxwed

with a frank, hearty address, be is tho

shine mid distilled rose leaves. Ho
works hard, and enjoys it His voico
and presence aro commanding, and few
can embellish a jiost prandial address
with a better assortment of digestion
provoking anecdotes. Connected, as ho
has been, so prominently witli Kansas
life,' lie is recognized ns ono of tlio state's
leaders. Outside of the stato nnd
throughout tho Mississippi valley his
mime is familiar as that of one who has
put into fitting rhyme the pulsations of
tho busy, earnest life that there exists.

Paius. Oct. 15'. Alexander Hurrison,
whose famous painting, "Le Crepusculo"
ono of tho few great marine pieces over
painted was engraved for the frontis
pleco of The Midsummer Century, is at
present one of the most conspicuous
American artists in Europe, A tall, slen
der, dark haired, dark eyed young man,
he wears eyeglasses . and has the erect
carriago characteristic of tho marina
service, in which his early youth was
' passed. It was whilo in the United
States navy, during which lto scoured
1 the seas, that his wonderful observation
1 and sympathy developed, leading him to
i seek expression on canvas. A Philadel
I phlan by birth, Alexander Harrison has
lived in Paris ten years. His atelier is
ruo Notre Dame do Champs, opposito
tlio studios of Uouguereau ami Elizabeth
Gardner. Ho is a great favorite and
leader anion;; the younger artists, and
a vital factot in the organization of tlio
Salon on Clump do Mars,
"Why does Harrison paint tho sea so
tenderly';" inks a French critic "Bo
caio lie knows it, because lie loves it."
To Harrison tho founder of the Lazaro
school owes much of his success. It
was his recommendation that enrolled
Ainelio Itives Chanter among Lazate's
pupil-., giving to the school a fashiona
