SKETCH OF HOPKINSON SMITH.
F. Hopkinson Smith isa typical
Southerner in appearanne-tall; finely
formed,withgray moustache, he makes
a favorable impression instantly. His
manner of reading is characterized by
a restless energy and an abundance
of gesture, which are very captivat-
ing. The clearest and keenest intel-
ligence and good taste characterize
Mr. Smith's style. -His eyes fasci.
nate you, looking out with a dark
lustre from under heavy brows. No
man could be more absolutely meth-
odical than the creator of "Colonel
Carter," who rises early, builds light-
houses and viaducts until four in the
afternoon at his office on Nassau St.,
where he is Francis H. Smith, then
becomes F. Hopkinson Smith until
seven p. in., and 'in that time does
his literary work-and goes abroad
every summer to rest and paint. Mr.
Smith in his public reading follows
no plan but his own, and has been
instructed by no teacher. His voice
is full and pleasant, his manner vi-
vacious and intense, and there is in
"his way of putting things and inter-
preting his own books a certain mag-
netism which never fails to hold and
entertain his audience. He works in
many thrilling stories of adventure,
changing quickly to the humorous or
pathetic, and in his delineation of
character shows that he has in him'
the stuff for a brilliant career on the
stage should lie choose to annex that
profession to the many in which he
has already achieved success.
He is a type of gentleman as ra:.e
witty. His charming hour's talk of
plantation life is without an equal.
Touching pathos and elegant diction
produce a literary mosaic of positive
brilliancy and great power.--Chicago
Every student of grace and form,
every lover of nature and its mani-
fold moods is interested in what Mr.
Smith has to say in his art lectures,
topics chosen with a fine appreciation
of their educational element.--St.
JOHN TEMPLE GRAVES.

most brilliant and statesmanlike ora-
tor heard in New York in years.'

TiOlAs NELsON PAGE:-" His
speech is a mosaic of eloquence.'
HENRY W. GRADY: -- "John
Temple Graves has the most phe-
nomenal eloquence I ever heard.
TrimAs C. TRIMEBLOOD (Profes-
sor Oratory and Elocution, Ann Ar-
bor, Mich.):-" It was the most elo-
quent oration it has ever been my
lot to hear. This statement is but an
echo of the sentiments of the thou-
sands who hung on his very word.
Other speeches there were soon for-
gotten. Th s was the theme of con-
CHAS. F. CRIsP, Speaker House
of Representatives, U. S.:-" John
Temple Graves is an orator whom
you will not hear surpassed."
Ho. BENJ. H. HuL, United
States Senate:-" He has the finest
gift of oratory I ever heard."
'The most eloquent, striking and
sensational utterance made on the
Chautauqua platform in years, was
the lecture by John Temple Graves,
of Georgia, on the Negro problem.
It is the topic of the hour at Chau-
tauqua. The old amphitheatre rang
with applause as the brilliant Geor-
gian took his seat." -New York
Will Carleton was born in the state
of Michigan and was at one time a
student at the University, but like
all men of international reputation no
one tate can claimliu. lie founded
the present School of American Poe-
try and his name stands for that which
is purest, grandest and most original
in American literature. He has de-
monstrated to the World that Amer-
ica had a mine of poetry that had
only to be opened by a master hand
to charm, instruct and enlighten man-
Soon after his poems began to be
read the World over, it discovered
that Carleton was also one of the most
impressive and entertainmig lecturers
and readers the nation had developed.
Whether reciting his own matchless
poems, or in his scarcely less poetical
prose lie is alike instructive and en-
trancing. His rich, clear and facile
voice; his fine presence; his magnetic
and dramatic qualities ; and, not
least, the good, sound sense with,
has placed liim ni the front of those
who minister, single landed, to the
large audiences throughout the coun-
try. He is now editor of the unique
widely circulated magazine, "Every-
where,"' published in Brooklyn, N.
Y., and is doing the grandest work of
his life, both with his pen and on the
Held the appreciative audience en-
Enchains the sympathies of all his
hearers.-Portland, Oregon, Tele-
Smiles and tears paid liberal tribute
to him.-Salt Lake Tr-ib-ne.
As great a success as a lecturer and
r a:ler as lie is poet.-Denver Sun.
Always delightful, frequently in-
structive, never dull.-ew York
