J. K. Huysmans, the well-known author, died in Paris on Sunday last in his sixtieth year. He started life with the intention of devoting himself to Government service, but literature soon claimed him. He joined the Naturalistic School, and produced some remarkable novels, “Marthe,” “Les Soeurs Vatard,” “En Rade,” “Là-Bas,” “En Route,” and others. From naturalism he passed to mysticism towards the close of his life, and mysticism was the note of his latest works. He had a large following, and many admirers.
