helpful, psychic, should drift out of
rtie.book without more of an explana
tion. A number of the characters In the
story were tolerant, notably Minnie
rJooderlch, whose Ufo of adventure was
'lullo fortunato; Mrs. Wllfley, tho
Journalist, who lived In Clifford's Inn
and wrote looks and fashions and ad
.ertlscments: Mr. ailflllan, the pro
moter, who carried Minnie off to tho
"continent," and Capt. Briscoe, the
Krcnch mariner, who married Minnie.
We notlco that the story places Clif
ford's Inn !n tho Strand. Years ago
It stood In Fleet street, east of
Chancery Lane. Goodness knows what
has happened slnco the small but re
ipectcd barrier of Tetnp'.o Bar was
pulled down, but Clifford's Inn ought
at least to have been permitted to
remain pretty close to tho Cheshire
Cheese. In other days the Cock Tav

rttempt had been made to slldo Clif
ford's Inn away from its venerable
It Is unpleasant to hear Mr. Julius
Vito talking at pago 112. Mr. Fife Is
a fitting character; he Is gone in a
little while, and wo may be thank
ful that he does not return; but better
still If he had not come at all. There
is subtlety In the understanding that
Is brought about when ailflllan takes
Minnie to dinner. But this young
woman throughout Is distinctly curious.
Sho had small powers of speech, a
respect wherein she differed widely
from GUflllan. If she did not have
language she understood it; notice her
rustling the bank notes In GUfllUn's
sumptuous yet tasteful office. It Is
astonishing that she should have gone
plump to Mrs. Gaynor with her frank
confession regarding herself and GU
flllan. Mrs. Gaynor, however, was
qualified to hear nny sort of revela
tion with considerable composure. Min
nie's mother was the only one who
took In the matter In the old fash
ioned romantic way. Was Mrs. Gay
nor's genius subliminal? Was her In
fluence catalytic? The story says that
her genius nnd her Influence were
of this sort. It may be that the reader,
knowing so much, will be qualified to
understand Mrs. Gnynor.
Tho story takes us to Ruen, where
we make the acquaintance of Capt.
Briscoe, and to sea. Little Hannibal,
who saw his father drowned In the
brook, becomes the central figure. Wo

The overrunning of N'ew England by

startling phenomenon of recent years

of writers of fiction. The rlso of a

Is described by Edith Mlnlter In Our
Xatuitski S'ciyhhors (Henry- Holt &

wholly kindly. The point of view Is
that of the Amerlcnn lookeron who
is Ignorant of and not Interested In

I Is merely a bearer of children and a
beast of burden. Tho citreer tit each

A PICTURE of old American country life the village,
the store, the church sociables, the temperance lectures,
the sleighing, the fiddling, and the dancing as seen through
the eyes of a boy of ten. The impressions as written seem like
transcriptions caught somehow as they streamed through this
boy's mind, and they are expressed in a style as pungent and
fresh as the boy-language of all the world.

squeezing up through bare toes, the taste of fruit, the
