' ' DR. GORDON STABLES.
It was a happy day for all lovers of purity in fiction, reality tn adventure, knowledge in essays on health, and experience in sporting, . when?Dr. W. Gordon Stables, M.D., R.N., . took to literature aa a profession some twenty ,. mara ago, for daring the intervening period . between then and now he has given the world r some eighty volumes, dealing with almost
every conceivable «object As a writer for ?? tile delectation of boys he bas no equal, whilst «iris are always as eager to read his entertain- ing articles on health and beauty, and other kindred subjects so dear to the heart of , the matrons of a earning generation, as are their smothers to read Dr. Stables's varions
Tgniâeilfor-thelr benefit. His literary output biaomsttiing phenomenal, and lt is impossible " not to admire the purity, the simplicity, and
at the same time strength of bis composition -4hs very pointa in bis work which no doubt 4»ve raised bim to the high pedestal be .looctiples aa a writer both of Cotton and of r-wäDfc Stables is AD old Aberdeen Grammar
<£shool boy,, on leaving which foundation he mluiaud hard for three year* at Maritcbal and ?^University College in the same etty. He was mended for the pulpit, but after studying Sometime felt he was not goodenough for the awórk, which meant, no doubt, if honestly Äntarpreted, that fae thought be bad no special ¡nail ' to adopt tbe Church as a profession,
|^v|>ybody whom his writings entertain must fwdmue him the more for not entering on the j-work under those circumstances, although'it ÈjsriJr» grevious disappointment to his mother, |$or abe wished him to become a clergyman,
¡;áOie.v"oure of souls," however, is a very , aaolenm charge, and one whioh should not be 'fiwàwtaken except by those who feel they
|MI»W« special call from God for it. Then 'jyOBAg Stables wanted to join the array, but
yítjded to the wishes of bis parents and __¿totered as a student for the medical pro Ijfpsjlon, In which he has taken the highest
degrees a man can take-M.D. in medicine and CM. in surgery. At the end of bis first year ;ae a medical student, and when only nineteen years of age, Dr. Stables took charge »¿of,» (Greenland Sealer, with forty men all vÍMíí: £ IAODi after a few years' medical ? JsjRËr. he joined tbe Royal Navy as a doctor,
5,1* which fae served for ten years till Invalided in | consequence of an attack of rheumatic ^Merl ¿(ter marrying be settled down at 'jHfe'ford, famous as being tbe junotion on tbe v Great ÍVestera 'Railway for Henley, the great 1 regatta town, some forty miles from London.
He bas always been fond of the .sea, and bis greatest delight as a boy was to be among tbe vessels, and be is nothing if not a
" The Cruise ot the Land yacht Wanderer, sr 1200 Miles in my Caravan," also show Dr. Stables-as he himself boasts of the phrase he will not be offended-"to be a Kipsy," a gentleman gipsy of course, and Bis caravan has sow become pretty well known in varions parts of the kingdom. It is handsomely famished, and quite a multnm-in ptVrvo bijou country residence, containing a sleeping apartment for the doctor ana a Ooptlng apparatus. It is usually drawn by a
iones, but when negotiating a hilly] oanntry sometimes faur animals are employed. The Doctor delights in travelling in this fashion in preference to trainB, as he thus secures many more ideas, that are quiokly recorded in his note-book, which when on a Ícorney is neUÉfcsu t of his bands. Dr. Stables
ia treat advocate for country air, and avers that if people would take more of it ther -frirald be much less necessity for alcoholic
.stimulants. Talking of the great writer as a gipsy, it is interesting to note that the love If for rural surroundings is still very deep in I him, for he appears to practically hate a house,
and does all his work ont of doors, either in t his caravan wheo on bis usual summer tour,
or .lo his «Josy Uttlo bungalow, or wigwam, ; whian he uses ss a study, in order to be
absolutely alone, and which, with a pretty verandah around it, is situated in a delightful little' jnngle-Hke corner of his pleasant Uronnds, at the entrance to whloh there is a ' significant printed notice, "Beware of thc
dogs," The Doctor only condescends, to go into his house to eat and sleep, and always storks with the window of his study wide open, both summer and winter.
