DOROTHY CANFIELD FISHER
Author of "Mothers and Children"
It laa customary for critics, for n
Ijood many cars let's see. It was
nbout30 that lfor first book, "A Honmnco
of Two Worlds " appeared to "elate,"
as she Is so fond of describing It, Marie
Corclll. In the dus of our childhood,
despite tho flippant contempt of levlow
era. wo remember bclntr thrilled by
"Ardath" and "Tho Sorrows of Satan,"
although. In rrmturer j earsr attempts to
read these popular works proved pain
fully tedious But then. In diyrKwhen
Anatolo Franco and Thomas Ilnrdy wcro

Irfiura Jean Llbbcv nnd Bertha SI Clay
Kow Miss Corclll has novcr, even by her
most unkind assailants, been classed with
Charles Garvlce, tho Laura Joan I.lbbe
of England, or with Miss I.lbbej, the Mr

to go on "It was a roprobato of a road

Innocent, the heroine, Has grown up

Innocent said plteously; "It's not my

Desplto what she Is, Innocent goes to
London nnd writes a novel "Not an
ephemeral piece of fiction," says Miss
Corelll, "not a 'Wells' effort of Imagina
