HARPERS PUBLISH A WORK ON SCIENCE
A Snaaber at Interesting- Leva ttorlea I
lien -now i jvrrp
'A prominent English novelist to whom
Draxel Blddl. the Philadelphia publisher,
sent a copy of "Peggy O'Neal," by Alfred
Henry Lewis, has styled "Peggy" "The
pretty stumbling block of Jackson's admin
istration." Ha has written a letter to Rud-
yard Kipling, in which he says that
"Peggy O'Neal" Is more worthy to be
called the long-looked-for American novel
than any other that haa thus far appeared.
Peggy O'Neal waa known by Washlngton
lans In Andrew Jackson's day as tha wife
of Secretary, Eaton of the president's cabl.
net. It Is tha war against her, carried on
by tha women of Washington, who for
the reason that Peggy O'Neal waa younger,
handsomer and more vivacious than they,
decided that their own social supremacy
depended on combating the young woman.
They based their warfare on the fact that
her father had been a tavern keeper, and
that the gay Peggy waa altogether too
frivolous of character. The gret presi
dent, "Old Hickory." took her part. The
plot is masterly and the Incident exciting.
"New Conceptions in Bclenee," by Carl
Snyder, is one of the yaluable new. books
published by Harpers. The great beauty
and value of this work of Mr. Snyder's lies
in the fact that it Is written in language
end style so simple and comprehensive that
it Is not necessary for one to even make
pretensions of being a scientist to under
stand It, A desire to keep abreast with the
times Is the only requisite to reading and
comprehending this scholarly and Interest
ing work. Mr. Snyder Is an optimist and
there are no gloomy parts or passages. The
' subjects chosen are Just those one desires
to know about. The opening chapter is a
very Interesting one on "Science and
Progress." The rise and fall of the school
of science at Alexandria is used as tha first
object lesson. Speaking of Alexandria, the
author says: "Here flourished for more
than 600 years that long Una of astronomers
and mathematicians, geographers and ge
ometers, physicists and physicians, begin
ning with Euclid, and not ended with
Ptolemy, which made illustrious tha Alex
andrian school which, made Alexandria,
Indeed, a veritable city of science." The
attention of the reader la called to the
length of time the human race has stood
at its present level and. to the "brlefnesi
of the period, in which exact knowledge,
based upon measures and experiment, has
replaced guess work . and dreams." He
says: "The last two or three centuries
have acquired a wider knowledge of this
world and of the larger universe, than all
of tha sixty or a hundred centuries preced
ing." The reason for all this he sums up
In this brief way; "For tha upbuilding of
the vast body of verified and unified ex
perlence and experiment which we call
science, there waa required the invention
of tools of delicate instruments and me
chanical constructions of every sort. It li
the requirement and possession of these
that alone differentiates us from the old
days." Ho gives as another reason for the
slow progress that science lacked numbers
that ita adherenta and exponents were too
few. . The. other chapters are equally enter
taining and instructive. While one cannot
resist the spell of the author's optimistic
charm, yet, probably there are those hi
will differ from him in some thoughts. He
says; "The end and aim of all scientific
endeavor Is to describe natural phenomena.
including all visible and invisible things-
matter, life and mind by simple mechan
leal laws, expressible in mathematical
equations." Then again, "We may now
change tha tense of Tyndall's famous
" phrase and say: ' "Science has claimed, and
it has wrested from theology, the entire
domain of cosmologies! theory." Speak
ing of the "deformed, the defective and
diseased" members of humanity, he says
they "must be incessantly weeded out.'
Then he has something to siy of the prei
nt marriage relations, that while it may
be scientific, will hardly be accepted with
out "a grain of salt" by those who are not
ao "up" In science. The price Is 13.
"The Modern Obstacle," by Alice Duer
Miller, is a love story thjtt differs ma
terially from the' usual love stories in
that it immediately cornea to tha point
on tha "modern obstacle" question. 'The
modern obstacle" la money, and no tlrv
is wasted In "love in a flat" or "willing;
to sacrifice ' theories. This modern hero
ine must have money and don't care who
knows It In this clever story Mrs. Miller

of happiness, and she paints a true picture

"Shakespeare and the Rival Poet," with

"Remembrances of Emerson," by John
Albee, Is one of the new books published
by Robert Grler Coolce. Its contents are
divided Into three parts, "A Day with
Emerson," "Emerson's Influence on the
Young Men of His Time" and "Emerson as
Essayist." A perusal of this work, written
by one who had the most profound admira
tion for and an intimate acquaintance with
the great philosopher, gives one an Insight
Into his moods and thoughts that . could
not possibly be written by those who had
not had this personal and close acquaint
ance. It will be especially appreciated at
this centennial time. The frontispiece Is a
portrait of Emerson, of which he himself
said, "Looks most as I see myself."
