BIRTHDAY ANNIVERSARY OF THE GREAT SCOTCH POET. "Bnnjuiami" at Washington—A B«mark»- ble Private Collection of the Poet's Works—.How It Wit* Gathered and What It Contains—A BotaimfK Love and Pride. [Special Correspondence.] WASHINGTON', Jan. 24.—Kobert Burns eras a, prophet a.s well as a poet; a seer as well as •writer of verses, as instanced sr his deathbed declaration to Jiis wife, "A hundred years after this they will think mair of me, Jeau. " And the next century, as we know, all the civilized nations of the earth, especially those where the English language is spoken, united to honor the hundredth anniversary of bis birth, in 1759. Again, in 1896, summer before last, the prophecy of the Scottish poet was fulfilled by the universal tributes from all classes to his genius, on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of his death. The 25th of January, then, the day on which Burns was born, is held by Soots in reverence-almost as great as we Americans hold the 22d of the month snoceeding. It is a day in the Scottish calendar to which Scotsmen turn and point with pride and which they celebrate with feasting and with song. And no one grudges the admirers of Caledonia's bard their enthusiasm, for'are not we all the beneficiaries of this heritage of genius? Have not the peas of all our greatest men of this generation-and the one preceding written admiringly of his verse? Have not their voices been raised in testimony to his talent? Says the poet Whittier: "When I as 14 years old, my first schoolmaster brought to our house a volume of Burns' poems, from which he read, greatly to my delight. I begged him to leave the book with me and set myself 315 once to tie task of mastering the glossary of Bow Columbia Oarsmen Are Acquiring Strength and Skill.

By a thumb nut a belt can be tightened to any desired degree, mid luoro or less friction can IK) thrown into the running pans, so that the resistance during the stroke is tho same as that- which exists when forcing a shell bout through the water. Tho pull can bo regulated at will by turning one screw, so that women-can use the mm- ohino with very little resistance, while, oa tho other hand, the resistance am be so increased tbnt the strongest athlete can have tho desired result. To the sides of the cockpit iiro attached the outriggers, in which the oars are pivoted in such a way that the operator can handle and turn the same as lie would during the return acd feathering motion. Each machine is fitwd with a innall clock face dial, which registers the distance rowed. The large dial is for exhibitions and racing contests, showing the position of contestants from start to finish. The machines are built for scull- Ing, double scull, pair oared, four, sis or eight. Those for crew rowing are riiRged so as to place the men in the same position as they would bo in a boat. All pulling on one machine enables them to get a. perfect rnoiioa and work as a unit.

This was about the first poetry I read, with the exception of that of the Bible, of which I bad been a close student, and it had a lasting influence upon me," Says Dean Stanley; "Burns : was the prodigal, son of the church of Scotland, but he was still her genuine offspring." Thus the great poet ancl the great preachek- viewed .Robert Burns from their different standpoints. It is not for us of the present day to criticise him in the slightest degree, for his place has been assigned him, his fame has been accorded by the greatest critics of the century. Burns, like Whitder, was nature's poet—her interpreter. Like Whittier, he first took hold npon the "common people," who at once and instinctively perceived the beauty of hig verse. Later t'ae more educated saw its literary, values. • A Barm Admireif. —"•.:• "~ I had the sad pleasure in 1882 of being present at the bnrial of Whittier, whose friendship I had enjoyed for a few years. In the West Indies! had the great pleasure of discovering a copied letter irorn Burns, which I later contributed to the first collectioiarof "Burns- iana" in this country. WJaen it occurred to me that my letter of this week would i'all upon the date of Burns' birth, I bechooght ma of something appropriate to the occasion and naturally sought out this collection, which belongs for- ttmatiily to a friend of mine and a gentleman. Forty-three years ago <iere came to this country from Scotland a young man, then 27 years of age., who, after a few days in New-York iuid Philadelphia, came to Washington and fouad employment as a gardener. He has been here 'aver since and for 40 years past has been the superintendent; of our National Botanic garden and has contributed more perhaps than any other man to tha adornment of tho capital by a practical application of bis knowledge of botany and horticulture. Hi> was born in the little town of .AtiKilstonford, not far frcini Edinburgh, » village nearly 1,000 years old, but whiijh has not had moire than 200 inhabitants for the past 9013 years. From the first he was a devoted lover of Bunas, and the first 3 shfflings he ever earned, which he won a.s a prize for reciting Gray's elegy »t school at the age. of HO, was spent for a copy of Burns. Today, although he has received for 40 yea^rs a small though comfortable salary frora the government, he is a poor man, all through his devotion to the Scottish poet, and he declares tbsit as he expended Jus first 2.shillings fiur a copy of his faviHite so he will spend his last half dolilw. - . ...,-.-• I said he had kept himself .poor by.his- mania fox Eurusiana, hut I am wrong.- He has spent- a fortune in getting together the finest privatce collection of Burns' works in the world, but he -has 1 thereby enriched himself aad the ooun- trj of hi» adoption in a meaicre beyond tho means of fcbrdid calculation, lite thnt great botanist Bartram oftthe Jiwt century, he has ennobled tbe calling he pursues as a means of livelihood and dignified labor by bis literary attribute. ., .No man can devote himself to any one subject, pursuing and studying it exhaustively, without becoming of greater value to himself and tbe com nraniry iu which he dwells. So it has been with Mr. Smith in this avocation which he has chosen. His collection of Burns 1 works is larger and more valuable tbun any other in America, public or private, and ranks only third or fourth unions those of Great Britain, surpassing even that of the British museum. He has in all nearly 1,000 volumes of Burns, including more than 150 different editions, and every edition but one which was published during the poet's lifetime. Of this the first edition, called the "KiLmaruoek," the centenary of which was celebrated in 1886, he has a facsimile. He has, however, a copy of the first Edinburgh edition, 17S7, in a good state of preservation, and one of the second edition. This latter is known as the "stinking edition," from a curious typographical error in the "Address to a Haggis," by which the words "skinkiug ware," or cheap goods, were printed "stinking ware." Bare Edition*. "They all have defects," says Mr. Smith, when asked why so many editions of the same author. "There is scarcely a perfect edition among the whole 150." He onght to know, having carefully collected every edition of value since the great work began. Besides all the rare British and Scottish editions he has all the early Americans, including a volume of the first Amer- can, published in 1785, a copy of which was once in the library of George Washington. And, by the ivay, Mr. Smith is very much interested in restoring to the shelves of Washington's library at Mount Vernon copies of all the works which once adorned them and which have been 'scattered, owing to the mercenary disposition of a Washington executor. The first edition of Burns in America was published in New York in 1788, a year aiEter the first Edinburgh and two years after tbe very first of al'l, the Kil- maruock. Two or three of these American volumes "are in a sense priceless and one is owned by a certain western congressman, who on learning that Mr. W. H. .Vanderbilt was after-it declared most emphatically, "Vanderbilt can't buy.tlmt bookjT' .Tb,ere are certain books, which a bibliophile like Mr. Smith regards as really beyond price, and the little volume published iu Alexandria in 1813 is one of that number. These thousand volumes or so of literary treasures aru held in a little' room in the cottage provided for the<. botanist adjacent to the government greenhouse, a cottage coly one and one-half stories,'in height, overgrown with, vines, and in a room scarcely 1- feet square. In all, Mr. Smith's librarj contains perhaps 4,000 volumes, beinj arranged around tbe walls of these lov studcled rooms in cases and ,stowed away in '6dd' nooks and corners. Here, fiur rounided by his books and in the com pany of ius : favorite shepherd dogs, he passes his leisure time in study and lit. erary recreation. He declares, what I myself have oh served in my travels about the world, that it is the traveled Scotchman—anc the oxile from home—who best appreciates the worth of Burns, A niece of the poet once wrote to him, "A Scotchman always begins by findiiag fault with my uncle, but the Americans—they never find fault with him. " Burns Souvenirs. Scarcely less valuable than the poet's volumes are'" J the various souvenirs Mr. Smith possesses of the laud of Burns— photographs - : <jf his birthplace and hi cottage at Dumfries, memorials'-of the birthday centenstry of 1859,'.and a cast of .th.fi skull obtained when the Burn i/leoin .containing his remains was cpcued in 1834 i;o place by bis side the ::iaii;s of "Bonny Jean," his faithful v. ii'e and widow. An admirer of Mr. Smith has sent him a pen and ink sketch'of the "haunted kirk of Alloway"and anothera "qnaeh orniiggen"—oaken whisky cup—made from a chip of a rafter from that same old church. These relics, together with tbe bust of Burns and tbe great Burns scrapbook, which the owner has been gathering thes« 40 • years, are interest* ing and valiwbl'e, In that same old scrapbook I found a translation of some of Burns' verse into French which is full as funny as Mark Twain's " Jumping Frog 1 ' rendered into the same language, as for instance: Willie brewed a peck o' mam. And Rob and Allan cam to pree: Three blither hearts that lee-long night Ye wad na tad in Christendie. The French af it: O Willie, a brass*; UB demi-boi^son de malt EC Kob ej Allan vinrent le gouter; Pendant touts cette nuit trois ccaurs plna joyeux Vous ne les auriez pas troures dans le care- tiente. But the Frenchman excelled himself in his translation of the "Address to the De'il," beginning, "But fare yon well, auld Dickie:—ten,'' which is Gallicized into, "Allous, ton soir, vieax Nic." "Good evening, old Sick, let us go!" That other Frenchman did no worse when he translated "All hail.Macbeth," into "Bon jctir, M. Macbeth." But that is about as near probably as ;tne French, or any other of the 15 languages into which Burns has been translated, can coiae to rendering faithfully the beauties , of the English bard and Scottish poet' I said to ..Mr. Smith, "I suppose the Congressional library will eventually; possess thisi valuable collection of yours?"' What?" he replied, a sudden fire flashing from his eye. "When that library has not the name of Burns npon its walls!" Then. I rexaembered that he bad once said,- "Sober* Bnrna is my prophet, priest and ling," and was silent, respecting his just resentment of this implied slight co hia hero. F. A. OMB. THE NEW WOMAN. She Munt L««rn Promptness :uid Fidelity In Business Engagement*. Mrs. Cynthia Westover-Alden holds an important editorial place on the staff of the New York Tribune. Lately I met her wearing a weary of the %vorld expression. It is part'of her duties to employ women reporters and writers to work for her department. She told me the good Lord only knew the trouble she had in getting girls that were reliable and prompt Just when an important assignment was before her a yonng woman would step up and say she wanted to be excused that night, as she was going to a party or expected to hava company. Most girls had beaux and society in their heads, equally with if not more .than thp.ir business tasks, and it seemed hopeless to make them appreciate the importance of the work they bad undertaken" to do. Then, too. they were exceedingly apt to take affront easily when sent oa assignments and come back without getting what they were sent for. If they were snubbed or not treated like a fine lady in a parlor, out they would whirl in a dudgeon and leave the work they had been ordered to do. "They don't think of the paper, they don't think of me," said Mrs. Alden. "All they think of is their own burt vanity. Once or twice I have nearly lost my place through having a girl whom I had sent out on an important assignment flare up and come back without a word of report." Mrs. Alden declared further that a boon beyond calculation would be a strong, active, willing woman, who knew how to write, who had the proper pride in her work and her paper and who could be depended on to put its interests first every time. I have mentioned this conversation to point out incidentally the great need for women who enter the industrial world to pnt all nonsense away from them and settle down to serious work. I long ago found out that I could do one of two things. I could work or I could play, but I could not do both together. I could not even work as I ought to and then go off and have a good time socially, in the evening. If I did, I was not fit for iny work nest day. Work was what I gained my living at and what I came into the world to do. So I gave up the good times socially and buckled down to the occupation I had chosen. .1. It has been my solace and my delight-- It has made ,ine a good, liyipg and enabled me to help others. I h^ye gained more, far more, than I gave up. Unless you are absolutely prompt and faithful in keeping your promises and ingageinents you will never amount to a row of pins. Many girls and women would like to write for newspapers. They have a per- :ect right to do so. First, they should be sure they have something to say, something they think ought to be said. They must learn to write. A legible band is an important requisite, whether you do or do not use a typewriter. A good, plain handwriting is an indication of a character that takes' proper pains with work. Learn how to spell and punctuate perfectly and now to use absolutely faultless grammar. Do not depend on proofreader or compositor to correct defects in this line. An editor •will not .bother with a manuscript •whose author does not know how to spall or to use good grammar/ '' Next, learn composition. Be precisely accurate in your statements of fact. If yon are not sure a thing you.-wish to Biate -»s fact is such, find out, or, if you cannot, then omit it altogether. Do not bother with trying .to acquire any- particular styla §iinply say wha,t you have.to.say in strong, clear English and stop, never repeating yourself, never maundering on in a slovenly, wordy way. Do not depend on having your manuscript edited and cut down. Do the editing and cutting down yourself, and your chances will be 16 to 1 for getting yoar matter printed. Have every word of it ready, exactly as it should be printed. To do this requires much practice and usually much experience, bat if yoa are really in earnest you will be willing to do everything that helps to make you successful.
