The second Volume of Charles Scrlb
ner'a Sons series on "Shakespearean Wars"
has appeared. It is by Prof. T. R. Louns
bury of Yale, entitled "Shakespeare and
JVoItalre," and Is devoted entirely to the part
played by Voltaire In Shakespearean contro
versy. - It is well known that Voltaire's
part in the Shakespearean controversy was
most conspicuous and most influential not
only on the continent, but In England Itself.
The subject has, however, never been dealt
with heretofore on a scale at all commen
surate with either ita interest or its Im
portance, and Prof. . Lounsbury ehows how
great both of these In reality are. His
Tolume, moreover. Is. not only a monu
mental piece of research and exposition,
bat captivating chapter in the history
of criticism. " . " : . : . . '
"The Magle Hashle" is a volume of four
teen very clever golf stories by Edwin L.
Cabin Issued by A. Wessels company. Mr.

magazlues and of the storlea in the vol
ume several have appeared In Outing, Oolf
and other niagaslnes devoted to sport and
'rtMnr life The fortes ere brimful! of
healthy humor, and ' are not written only
for. the golflcide. The flrst story, "The

'the only player on tha links, resting near
a bunker. He la suddenly roused by a
feminine voice lamenting because of tha
presence of a ram. Discovering that it

after much teasing, be calls her by' her flrst

: '. Memoirs of John Russell Toung, which
."have been collected by his widow under
the. name of "Men and Memories" and is
aued In two volumes which have already
reached their second edition, form a collec
tion of personal reminiscences by a man
.distinguished In life and letters, who. in
his career has come in contact with, men of
'note almost without number In vsrlous
.walks of life.-. While the arrangement of
the materials could and should be improved
'and many of the articles have appeared
."from time to time In newspapers and peri
'odlcals the collection is none the less of
Intense interest.' The late Mr. Young was
Sot only a keen observer, but a charming
writer aptitudes probably gained by long
Journalistic experience, and of the sketches
he has .given ua those narrating his re'a
tlons with and opinions of the giants of
American Journalism are the most vivid.
The .very-names of the men about whom he
writes rom- personal-contact are Inspiring:
JohaiW. rorne, .Huyard. .Taylor, Horace
Greeley', George William Curtis. Henry J.
Raymond,. Jamas. Gordon Bennett, Louis J.
Jennings, George W. Chllds. Of men In
public life, legislators and diplomats, actors
and authors, Mr. Young speaks with rare
discrimination, drawing from a fund of
Information, much of which has hitherto
been locked up against the public eye. . It
Is certainly, unfortunate that the death of
Mr. Young shortly after hla appointment
as librarian of our great congressional 11-
ferary forced him to leave hla memoirs In
so fragmentary a form. But even aa such
they will well repay reading. Published by

sion of the council of South Omaha to va
cate certain portions of Railroad avenue.
Some time ago this was attempted, but
the council then decided that the applica
tion did not come in a formal manner
and refused to recognize such a communi
cation. Stork yards people stated yesterday that
the amount of the street they would now
want vacated la much smaller than waa
originally desired, as the trackage could
probably be condensed materially. They
stated that as yet they had not reconsid
ered their offer to build the O street via
duct at their own cost and would do so aa
soon as the council would signify a will
ingness to give them the land wanted.
In all probability the matter will come
up before the next meeting of the council.
It Is thought that a majority of that body
will again support the measure.

that the cases had never been set for S

were continued to. Judge King had granted
a continuance to October 14, but, after a
