Death of a Nobody
A pensioned railway engineer dies In
a tenement In Paris. This Is the point of
departure which M Itomalns takes In hln
'The Death of a Nobody" (W, B. Hue
bsch, New Tork). Cut around this com
paratively Inslgnlricnnt person, tho author
paints n picture, nrtlsllo nnd philosophi
cal. Tho death of nn Inmate of the tene
ment sets tho house astir with a sud
den realization of his former existence.
Young nnd old nro drawn, not In their
entity, hut In their relation to fnls per
son. With an almost uncanny realism
Komnlns tells how tho death of ttild
man Is part of these many lives, how
they all think of him, talk of him, and
even begin to love nnd know hlm-now
that ho Is no more. Hero are the un
conscious Intricacies of human relation
whips. Thero Is not so much detail as
relevancy And tho wholo gives the Im
pression of a full canvas, on which many
llttlo groups appear, distinct and human,
but all Indirectly connected with tho ccn
trnl llgurc, Itself no more Important than
any of the others.
And death travels to a distant village,
where the old father and mother llvo.
Through tho mouth of tho father this
l It lo fact of tho loss of n son passes
nto tho railroad carrlago which carries
tho parent to the funeral. And thence,

"Houso Furnishing and Decoration," as
well as "Planning nnd Furnishing the

question Into a nutshell. Both bookB also
fall to help tho person of "moderate"
means. Assuming that only tho wealthy
have a real Interest In tho quality of fur
niture and necessities of their homes, and
that personal expression In these things
comes after what h considered "good
taste," etc., then wo heartily commend
these two books. They are full of sug
gestions as to architecture, furniture,
decorations nnd necessities. "Planning
and Furnishing tho Home" might provo
more helpful especially tcr tho man with
small purse If It onlnrged its Ideas on
labor snvlng devices. Tho same might
be said of Its chapter for "Tho Handy
"House Furnishing nnd Decoration" Is
or a similar nature, perhaps n bit more
elaborate. Thero is a part devoted to
good color combinations, and how to tell
them. This might serve as a help to the
layman with llttlo personal taste and ex
perience. Another helpful chapter Is en
titled. "Devices of Utility and Built-in
As books of suggestions they each have
their place, especially In tho hands of
persons with limited taste, for thoy touch
many Interesting points of home-making.
But, followed too closely, they will give
llttlo chance for Individual expression.
My Heart's Right There
There Is but onewriter In America who
could do Justice to tho remarkable book
Just Issued by Putnam's Sons and called
"My Heart's Right There." Tho present
writer fecla that Miss N Br nkl y
ought to be given a chance to do It, ns
Her darllngest llttlo sojer man has been
ordered to tho front. She Is left alone
with her tiniest eenlest Tiny to keep her
company whllo her great big man 1b out
In tho trenches. Isn't war cruel? Ho
sends her a letter. The letter makes her
dear blue eyes fill with tears, because hor
own best belovedest hasn't had anything
but a turnip to eat. And the turnip was
rawT How queer that the turnip should
have been raw, when she could have
cooked lt for him und have sewed on
all tho tender buttons on his trousers.
At last he Is wounded, and comes back
to her. Such are the horrors of war. It's
all tho Kaiser's fault, Dut It will do loads
and lots of good, won't it, when all tho
sojers come back half-shot from the war?
And If somebody else made a song popu
lar and you could write a lot of fiddle-dee-dee
like this, and have It published and
put the Union Jack on the cover, and sell
200,000 copies and oh. well, wouldn't you
do It as well as Mrs. Florence Ti. Barclay,
who wrote "Tho Rosary"? Yes, you
"Little Chick Chickadee," by Carro
Frances Warren. Is easily one of the
most Interesting books for very young
children on the market today. This lit
tle books deals with the life of a very
young and naughty chickadee, who dis
obeyed his mother once nnd paid dearly
for It. It Is written In a style that will
delight the child and carries with It an
excellent moral, yet one that a young
brain might easily catch. The happy life
of the birds in the woods and how they
defend their homes from their natural
enemies la Interestingly portrayed.
The Paris Debata has lately dis
tinguished Itself, says the Boston Tran
script, with a report ot a lecture on
"Itudyard Kipling and Greater Britain,"
by M. Cestre, professor of English litera

admirer of the poet and contour. In
course of the otherwise excellent report
appear the following lines attributed to

Perhaps the most remarkable sudden
rise In social standing ever experienced
by an author came to Will Levlngton

soldier In the American army, and while
stationed In Porto Rico got Into such

Modern City Problems
Thero Is moro than meets tho cyo In
Frederic Howe's "Tho Modern City and
Its Problems" (Scrlbner's Sons, N. Y.) At
a glance It resembles a textbook for tho
student of municipal alTnlrs. It Is vory
carefully planned, well thought out, and
successfully executed. From generaliza
tions It works through history to particu
lars. It shows the intimate knowledge
which Mr. Howe has of American munici
pal conditions, and It compares these
conditions with similar and nnalagous
ones In tho European countries. There
can bo little doubt of Mr. Ilowo's famil
iarity with the subject.
But ho has another purpose. Ho wants
to convince tho thoughtful student of mu
nicipal affairs of tho real place which the
city has to tako today:
"The city Is being placed on a demo
cratic basis. Homo rule is being granted.
Charters are being simplified. Th. caucus
and convention are being abolished and
tho ballot Is being shortened. The Initia
tive, referendum and recall are being
added under this now democracy
tho city will be able to develop a life that
has no prototype In history."

MONDAY AT WANAMAKER'S
This is not a place for a
dollar to stand still
Wc arc not willing to put high figures on our
goods to get an advertisement out of them later
that we arc selling things at half price.
When wc advertise things at half price it is
because we have bought them at half price or less,
and we tell that plainly in type only because it is
We start our goods with the lowest fair price
possible, and people have found that out and they
come and take them away.
Then wc are ready for all the best that comes
along, and so the assortments keep fresh and the
dollars keep rolling and turning over and over.
We never hug any class of goods long not even
staples when the sources of supply arc open. To be
sure, we have many goods that are made expressly
to our order that are not getable elsewhere.
