A "Literary Discussion of International Copyright. ll.'OI'l'RICfTT, ISSU.'J "We <li.wnssi><! the international uopy- right while \vc sat at dinner in the little ba-ck room of the restaurant where we had met by accident about six o'clock of ;t rainy evening 1 . We u-erc aft authors—American authors, if you please—a.ntl all of \is had suffered by competition with the" distinguished gentlemen on the other side of the water, •*'ho had been writing 1 gratuitously for .American publishers. Oh. how we had suffered in that way! One had only to look at ns to see it. The. place is much frequented by literary pcopJe, especially in the latter part of the week, before pay day comes round on tlie big- newspapers. We are well known there and can "hang up" our checks. We always pa.y them, of course; we make enou<rh to live on; but somehow it doesn't last through, the •week. It is a curious .financial problem. We appear to be running 1 a race 'Perfectly,' replies the penetrating American parent, 'you're the sort of goods I've dealt in all my life.' " Collins' cigar fell from his lips. • He awoke with a start. Everybody laughed to see him nib Ms eyes and hunt for the still lighted cigar in the folds of his capacioxis vest, Calahan took our merriment as a deserved tribute. He addressed us all. though he still pretended to be'talkingto Collins confidentially. "I'll just sketch the plot to you briefly. When ( get my lord the Duke to America—" "liy .love," said Collins, pulling out his watch and pretending to be stlarmed, "I've got an engagement at the Fifth A TAX ON TITLES. J.ABOIU.XG •with Saturday noon. Some of us are gaining on it, and some of us are losing ground. I know a man who used to begin to ' 'hang up'' his cheeks on Wednesday nights,.and now he doesn't have to begin until Thursday nights. I5y nineteen years of steady economy he has gained a day. 1 know another man who lost thirtj' days and his credit in less than a quarter of that time. A judge afterwards gave him the thirty days, but he has never recovered the credit. We are so literary that we have, imparted a literary flavor to this restaurant. It has gradually taken the place of all other flavors in the coffee and tea. \Ve discuss literary subjects: and, as I said before, on this particular occasion •we discussed international copyright. "I understand that Wiggleby & Co are to print nothing but American works now," said Collins. "That ough to give some of you a chance." "Observe," said Baker,- in my car "that Collins doesn't so much as hin that it will give him a chance. Hi •wants us to understand that he has a market for all the stories he can write. "Has he?" I whispered. "Yes: for all he can '-write. H couldn't write one to save his life." "I've a great mind to try Wiggleby & Co. with 'The British Hog,' said Cala han. "It's a satirical novel, and I've heard that lie wants some good humor pus-work." Baker (aside)—"That bars out 'The British Hog.'" "Have yon read the manuscript?" ; asked him, in a low voice, as Calahan turned to Collins. "2?o," replied Baker,-"but he !invitee me to dinner and we had 'The British Hog' for dessert. He read it all, I think I became unconscious at the end of the fourth chapter, but I understand' he fin- isned it. I meant to'put you on.' He carries the manuscript done up in blue Avenue in five mimites. Sony to leave you, boys." He pulled on his overcoat. Calahan looked disappointed, but he brightened almost immediately, remembering onr laughter. "I think the leading idea is a, first- class thing." he said, "and—" "But it's a little worn, Cal...my boy," said Hastings. "American authors have to keep up with the times in this coun- try'of hustlers. Now I've an idea for a story—" . ("I- knew he had," whispered Baker, "but I cherished a faint hope that .we might escape it.") —"which is right up to date. All this 'talk about Dr. Koch and the bacilli has prepared the public for good fiction on the subject." "If the public demand isn't satisfied ivith the foreign dispatches you've been writing. Hastings," said Baker, "there's no use in trying them with self-confessed fiction." "No; but this is a good tiling," said Hastings, "ily leading character is an ingenious Yankee doctor, who is called to attend Jay Gould. While he's studying the Little Wizard's case he discovers and isolates the bacillus of financial success. Oh. I'd like to write a description of that bug. Well, he inoculates himself with it and gets a mild attack, during which he collects his bill from Jay. Afterwards the thing acts like a vaccination and he can't make a dollar to save his life." "I guess we've* all been vaccinated that way," said '"Richards, as he wrote his name on his check and asked the waiter to carry it to the desk. "There's one thing I thank fate for in connection with this, copyright business," said Sewerly, "and that is that these French fellows will have less show to monopolize the market with their vile trash. It beats mo to understand why a, Frenchman Can't write of the relations of the sexes without being low. Why. I've got a story, 'The Love of Lucifer,' .which deals with human passions as intimately as any novel should, and could be put into the hands of-every young girl. You know the "DID AXY OF THEM HAVK-A XOVKL PUB- IJSHKD?" paper; and if he comes into your office with a bundle of that description, get out, if you have to use the fire escape." "Has he ever had any thing published?" "No; but he lias some very courteous letters from several of the best houses, declining his work. So have I and you know what a chump I am." "I believe I gave you a hint of the plot of ray story," said Calahan to Collins: "You would hardly have thought from that how finely the plot developed. You remember that my leading character was a young-titled Englishman"— Collins tilted his chair back against tke the wall—"who falls in love with a.n American heiress, but the truth is (and 1 have cleverly brought it oxit) that all he wants is her money. T?hat makes a good situation at_the.start, and"—Col- 1ms closed his eyes—"insures the interest of the reader at the very begin- 1 ning. ' Then there are strong' incidents and a good deal' of incidental humor. For instance, 'when the Englishman comes-JI-TOSS to .America and meets the eaJthy pork packer of •c your daughter,' says ; yo'.i '-'.adorstand me.' What Aspiring Young American Hi Pay For Tliclr Tuftn. The purchase of .European titles by rich and ambitious young- women has become of late years an American industry lint no one wants to pay for any ming twice. We may be certain, therefore, that the ladies who have invested in these commodities will see nothing to liuig-h at in the proposal made the other day by Mr. Moreau, a member of the French Chamber of Deputies, that all wearers of titles of nobility in France shall pay an annual tax to. the State. He recommends a sliding- scale, by which titles sUould be subject, according' to their grade, to taxes ranging from one hundred dollars to fifty thoxisand dollars a year. An additional twenty-five per cent, is to be paid jfor a wife and for every child that shares the title. There is really no reason why people who want to separate themselves from the rest of the community by titular distinctions should not be made to pay roundly for the gratification of their vanity.. What is overlooked, however, by most of the newspapers that have commented on Mi 1 . Moreau's proposal is the fact that it is no new tiling-. The attempt to derive a. revenue from the .fondness for titles was made more than once under the ancien regime. In 1703, Louis XIV. agreed to ennoble two hundred persons on condition that each of them should pay him three thousand francs, a sum. the purchasing- value of which was much -yreater then than it is now. In 1700,. five hundred new nobles were created, but the price was raised fco six thousand francs. In 1700 Louis XV. undertook to enact a law by. which all who possessed armorial bearings were to pay thirty francs a year, in addition to which a lump sum of two hundred and twenty francs was exacted of those who had not registered their right to coat of arms before 1700. This scheme had to be given up, because the court nobility would not, and the provincial nobility could not, pay the tax imposed. As a matter of fact, in England at this very time pretension to gentility and nobility are taxed by the Government. One has to pay a gninea a year for the privileg-e of possessing armorial bearing's, and two gnineas for painting- them upon a coach. The letters-patent to a.baronetcy cost five hundred dollars, and the letters-patent to a dukedom, one thousand seven hundred and fifty dollars, besides other fees and expenses that bring up the aggregate outlay required for the assumption of ducal rank to five thousand dollars. In Spain a grandee has to make a separate payment for every title that he bears, and his successor has to make the saine payments over again. Thus the heir of the Duke of Ossuna, or of the Duke of Uledina Goeli, has'to pay about twenty thousand dollars before .he can assume .the titles borne by bis father. We see, therefore, that Mr. Moreau can find plenty of precedents for his proposal, which, however, is scarcely likely to be adopted by republican legislators; for, by taxing titles, they would seem to recognize them.—N. Y. Ledger. THE AFFABLE WOMAN. HAX&IXG UP TIIEIB CJIKCKS. pldt, Little. I'll just run it over to these other fellows." "JJotBright after dinner. Joe," said Little, turning pale, "wait awhile. I've got to go,-.anyivay." He rose hastily, and put on his overcoat. - So did Hastings and the others, except Baker and myself. Sewerly followed Hastinprs. and I. heard the latter say: "Wait, till I light another cigar, Joe. Tobacco always strengthens my stomach." "Baker," said I, "did any- of those men ever get a novel printed?" "No, and they never will,"he, replied. "You-know I.used to be a doctor before I took to drink. Well; sir, it's my opinion that the terribly hard pressing work those fellows do. brings on what is known as general .paralysis of the insane, accompanied by the usual delusions of grandeur. They all imagine that they can'write. So do I. It's a clear case witlvine." "So it is with me," said I, sadly. "The feeble offspring of a mind that can produce no other brood, show themselves to my judgment frequently clothed in .magnificent attire—magnificent until I touch it, when it falls tfl dust,, showing- the weak, distorted frames it covered But, Jim, I'm better off than the others"—and I pressed his land while .the'delusions of grandeur seized upon me afresh—"for I've sold a novel." "You don't mean it, Howdy!" "Yes, I have. Sold it to Wiggleby & Co. for twenty-five dollars. Wiggleby iked the title. Didn't read the story. Said it was no use. He couldn't pay me dollar more, anyway, and -would jrobably have to shave his offer down f IHvaited. I got him to sa.y that he'd give me twenty-five more if the story iirculated up to three thousand, and hat was the best I could do. But it vas something—a little recognition of he-flame which I feel, I know to be arming within me!" Jim glanced anxiously at my plate t'p ee what I had been eating. "Enough,'.' T continued, "we will wait or -the other twenty-five, dollars. I may not live to get it myself, but at least I hall not leave ray children, no, nor my "randchildren, either, wholly unpro- vided' for. They can all ha,ve hope, ilessed hope. It seems strange, doesn't t,-Jim, that I should leave them a thing never had myself; and yet, that prom,e of " Wiggleby's—who knows—per- aps—some day—" I burst into tears. UOTVABD FIELDING. She Is >"ot Afraid of Losing H.r Dignity by Trylnsr to Brighten the World. If women could ever learn that it is quite possible to combine affability with dignity in commonplace daily intercourse with tlieir fellow-creatures, this would be a far brighter and more agreeable world. Nine-tenths of the gentlewomen one knows would no more ..address an unintroduced female than bite off a bit of their own tongues. Not once.in a blue moon do they dare converse with their servants, the clerk behind the counter, the chance companion of a, railway journey, or even the lady .who has dropped in to call on a mutual friend. Awkwardness and timidity, with a sense of alleged well-bred reserve seal their lips to every form of communication. In their shyness and stupid fear of furnishing. an opportunity for undue ' familiarity, they go through life like oysters, as far as those outside their narrow circle are concerned. But thank Heaven! there is a woman, and her tribe is increasing, who realizes all of the beautiful opportunities and rights the gift of.speech gives her. She can afford to talk tqherdo- mesties about any and every thing, and cement their affectionate respect with every word uttered. Her kindly recognition of the shop girl and fragment of pleasant gossip across the yard stick is a wholesome break in the clerk's dull day. To sit beside a respectable female for an hour's train travel, and not exchange greeting as two human beings touching in their journey of life, would confound her..kindly nature. She is sure of her dignity and, strong in-its in- 1 ,-ity, affords .to do what possibly a less fine-grained nature shrinks to essay. Her friendly, well chosen words are as far removed",from volubility as her cordial. .manners are _from gush. Recognizing the .power', of speech asthe most potent of .spells, for removing dull, unlovely .discontent, embarrassment, and loneliness, she is free 1 with worthy thoughts graciously expressed. It is noticeable that such women never leave drawing-room, kitchen, shop or coach that every other creature of her kind present does not acknowledge- to herself the supreme excellence of courtesy above all other feminine charms.—Illustrated American. HOW SPIDERS KILL. Fabulous Stories Told of tlic Tarantula's Bito, Spielers kill their prey "by the ag-enoy of a poisonous fluid, which, is secreted in a gland, and which flows at will to the extremity of one of the fauces or jaws.' Some writers have denied the existence of this poisonous substance; hut the effects which a spider's bite have been..known to. have upon a human being 1 prove undoubtedly -that it is present. Persons who have been bitten by a very large. South American spider, known as. Mygale fusca. have felt the effects in the recurrence of se- yere pains m the portion of the body attacked for as long as twelve or even twenty years after the infliction of the .wound. The stories told of the disastrous effects of the bites of the tarantula are, however, quite fabulous. Everybody has heard of the belief held by the inhabitants of the district round Tarantum, that if one chanced to be bitten by a tarantula he became subject to a dire disease w:hich could only be cured by musical strains. The disease no doubt existed, and was probably a form of hysteria, in the cure of which music may have proved beneficial, but to saddle an innocent spider with the odium of producing it was distinctly unfair. The destructive.powers of spiders do not stop short at killing insects, for some tropical species habitually catch and eat Small birds. The accounts first given of these formidable creatures were for a long time looked upon as mere travelers' tales, but more recent observations have f uUy confirmed the statement made by those who originally described them. The birds are not caught in snares, for these spiders spin no webs. They conceal themselves in crevices or under leaves and from such retreat pounce upon the birds they have succeeded in approaching. A great deal of their hunting is done during the dark hours of night, when they are able to steal upon their prey without being perceived. They often rifle the nests of humming birds, dragging out the young anfl devouring them, while the distracted parent biSls flutter helplessly around.:—Longman's Magazine. f{ja| lohxto AskyourAe&Ierforit.
