Thc Literature of Children:
The child in, literature is here, and
will remain. We wonder now that he
was ever absent in earlier writings.
It Is the natural child which is seeu
In modern books. The child at play
was seen by Homer, but the pulsing
throbbing, loving, natural child did
not appearf It was the vision of
helpless childhood without the attri
butes of a live, life-loving child.
Chaucer tells one or two stories of
children with exquisite pathos, but
they appear as lay objects of pity,
rather than beings of flesh and blood.
In ancient literature children seen to
form an effective setting to some pic
ture of home life. They are not, how
ever, active principals. They are oc
casionally met with, as when Medea
murders her children, but they are
secondary characters even there.
Homer tells us of Hector's infant
and Goldsmith shows a perception of
the child in "The Vicar of Wakefield'
but these cases are cold and inert ia
view of the present thoughts of child
hood. We are apt to look for every
thing in Shakespeare, but in the mat
ter of children he is meager. Scudder
accounts for this on the theory that
stage-room was limited in those times
and girls were not allowed to act.
eople did not care to have children
the center of attraction. The change
has been of gradual growth. The word
child is seldom found in Milton'
verso, owing perhaps to stern Puri
tanism, and the little ones were of
small interest even in "On the Deata
of a Fair Infant"
"Sanford, and Merton,' 'published in
1783, was almost the first book to
give prominence to children. Today
tho characters would seem priggish.
Our fathers and mothers enjoyed Miss
Edgeworth's stpries about children
and and Mrs. Barbauld's "Evenings at
Home' but tho talking Is so differed
from tho present mode "of conversion
that one wearies of it, finding it
forced and unreal. Dickens portrays
children, and their tendencies and'
weaknesses are the material on which1
he skilfully works. He holds a hfgtt
place among writers of the past cen
.tury who have mado child-life attrac
tive. The child from the time of Dick
ens seems permanently Introduced au
a factor in literature. It was from
his incentive that writers of all sorts
began to model their small people. No
male, writer has given so many child
characters as Dickens. KatherJiie
Louise Smith, in tho May Reader. New
What the Duchess MI5cd.
The Duchess of Marlborough may
have missed a triumph' by withdraw
ing from the vice regal ball, but at
the same time she escaped the whole
sale criticism heaped upon tho at
tendants of that function by the
great Hindoo organ, Amrita Bazar
Patrika. "Fifteen hundred went to
the Delhi ball," says the paper, "that
means that wo employ 1,500 fools In
high stations. European women are
like dolls, trained to give amusement
to their owners, husbands or lovers.
We Hindoos dance under the excite
ment of -religious enthusiasm, or hire
dancers for our enjoymont; the Eu
ropean makes his wife perform this
work, not onjy for himself, but for
other men as well. Needless to say,
it's indecent for a girl to dance with
anybody but her brothers or intended
husband; for a married woman to
dance with anybody but her husband
is atrocious. Tho many unhappy
marriages among Europeans are eith
er due to the fact that husband and
wife became engaged under the ex
citement of the dance, or that cither
of the two strayed from the path of
.virtue with a third party under tho
same baneful influence." London

Warwick (N. Y.) Dispatch: There
seems to be a plan on foot by soma
wealthy and influential "democrats" to
commit the democratic party to a
sham battle on the tariff and against
the trusts in the next campaign, elimi
nating all radical issues. These peo
ple would leave out any reference to
on income tax. government ownership,
or bimetallism, and throw a sop to

How to Get Rid of Rats.
All tradesmen, being liable to the
incursions and depredations of rats, Ijt
may not be out of place to mention
a method of getting rid of these pests
which is recommended by a correspon
dent of the Birmingham Daily Post
Tms consists in ttiinnlng down with
petroleum ordinary Blow-drying tar
varnish such as bedstead makers and
japannors use and pouring tho mix
ture Into tho runs of tho rats. Tho
vermin are said to loatho tho smell
of the stuff, and will do anything to
get clear of It A still more effective
plan Is said to be to catch a rat allvo,
dip it up to the neck in the varnish
and turn it loose. Its fellows will flee
from it as from the de'il. Tho dip
ping process Is said to be harmless
to the rat But some ironmongers may
not care to "dip a live rat up to its
neck." Scientific American.
