dfijN THE EAGLE'S TALON," by Mrs. Sheppard Stevens of St. Louis, is a spirited
"- and picturesque romance of the Louisiana Purchase, the scene laid in the St. Louis
of a centun' ago, and the story full of local color. Other notable publications of the week.
Gossip of authors and the work they are doing. New books received.
Mrs. Sheppard Stevens of St. Louis,
whose novels. "I Am the King," and "Tho
Sv.onl of Justice." have already spven her
a place among historical Unionists of the
present day. Is represented In the publi
cations of the Dast week by her latest work.
"In the Eagle's Talon," a romance of the
Louisiana Purchae. issued from the press
of Little, Brown & Co., Boston.
Th's novel, while of especial local In
terest, Its scene being laid !n the St. Louis
of the Louisiana Purchase days and Its
author a St. Lou:.-, woman, will deservedly
win a far wider hearing. It Is a well-con-structcd
and spirited tale and evidently ac
curate in the "local color" of early pioneer
times,. For a while In the course of tho
Mory the s-cene changes to the Pails of tli
days of the First Consul, and NapoV-on
himself is one of Its llgures. appearing In
tho I.ou!sIana Purchase transaction with
considerable historic dlqnlty, and In his jier
stcutlon of the story's second heroine, for
whom he feels an evil attachment. In a
decidedly repellant gu'sc, not untrue, how
ever, to history. But the major part of
the action takes place in St. louN and the
story culminates with the announcement of
the transfer of the Louisiana Purchase ter
ritory by France to the United States.
Sirs. Stevens is to bj congratulated upon
having drawn several characters of con
siderable strength and effectiveness In Ac
tion. Her hero In this book, young Louis
Lafrcnlere. hunter, coureur de bols and
French noble, is a gallant and picturesque
figure. Pretty and lovablo Fellcite Lang
lola, the heroine, is a very lovable girl in
deed, and a most attractive type of the
French-American maiden of early St. Louis.
Ono of the prettiest scenes In the story
brings the two together in an unusually
piquant setting: Louis wooing Fellcito up
a tree In an old St. Louis orchard, an epi
sode which is admirably utilized to re-cal
the author's possession of delicately humor
ous and sentimental touch. The love
motive of the story Is quite daintily handled
There are two chiracters of lesser Im

much favor with readers. One of these Is

story, but the author refrains from making
her a prominent figure. There Is quite a
deal of low comedy in the figure of Tante
Michel, the masterful aunt of Felicite. who
"bossed" the Langlols household as only a
spinster of aggressive ways can.
Mrs. Stevens has plainly devoted much
study to the manners and customs of the
St. Louis of Louisiana Purchase times, and
has revealed quite a gift for picturesque de
scription In this field. One of the most ef
fective bits in tho book Is tho account of
the Christmas festivities In the village, in
which annear "Father Mallet, in his best
! soutane, .llmo Chouteau. M. and Mme.
Auguste, tho Governor, the Labbadles, tho
Gratlots, the Paplns, even John Batiste
Trudcau, the schoolmaster." At the grand
supper, which was a feature of the culmi
nating bail, Mme. Chouteau, as one of the
provosts of the ball, "cuts the King's cake,"
In which are four beans, the lucky girls
who secure them having each the privilege
of ohooslng ".i King" from among the ex
pectant swains. Of course Fdlelte Is one
of the fortunate four but she doesn't
choose yotirg Louis Lafrcnlere Just then.
There Is a strong element of melodrama
in the story, which maintains the reader's
Interest from start to finish, but, while the
author is adequate to meet this melodra
matic demand, her best work Is found m
tho gentler and more delicate phases of her
tomance. Taken all In all, "In the Eagle's
Talon" Is a decidedly readable novel, which
cannot fall to add to Mrs. Stevens's reputa
tion. The book Is illustrated by Mr. A. Rus

A St. Louis publishing house seems to
hae "scooped" the United States Govern
ment In the- publication of "The Jefferson
Bible," concerning which there has been
so much spirited discussion of late. There
comes this week from the press of the N.
D. Thompson Publishing Company of this
city a little volume of 1CS pages, bearing
tho doublo title of "The Life and Morals of
Jesus" and "The Jefferson Bible." the pre
face to which explains that this Is the com
pilation made by Thomas Jefferson. "Whllo
this volume was s.lll in the possession of
Mr. Jefferson's oldest grandson," the pre
face states, "an accurate copy of its table
of contents was made, and from that copy
the English text is reproduced in the fol
lowing pages. As a fit Introduction to It,
a letter to Doctor Lenjamin Rush and a
comparison of tho doctrines of Jesus with
thoe of others are published, giving, per
haps, the fullest expression of his religious
views ever made by Mr. Jefferson himself."
In addition to the full texts of the Gospels
as selected by Mr. Jefferson, being, as he
called them, "an abridgement of the New
Testament for the use of the Indians, un
embarrassed with matters of fact or faith
beyond the level of their comprehension,"
there aro two facsimile pages of the origi
nal In Jefferson's handwriting. The book
will undoubtedly attract wide attention.

Civil War periods It is well to recall the
rotable contributions of that sort already
available. A famous novel of the recon

of a Northern man who lived for seventeen
years In the midst of tho tremendously ex
citing events depicted, taking large share
in them. This book had an extraordinary
vogue In the eighties, and Justly, while it
has never ceased to hold a certain popular
Interest. Professor Harry Thurston Peck
has recently said that it Is "one of the
most dramatic American novels ever writ

press generally exhausted conjecture In try

This makes the forty-ninth edition of the

upon the hearts of the English perple Is
evident in the continued demand there for
low-priced copies. Five years ago a London

TEST OF FENDER
AND BRAKE LAWS
Hoard of Public Improvements
May Proceed Against Railway
Companies du Pont's Letter.
Legal action against the street railway
companies may be instituted by the Board
of Public Improvements to compel use of
newly approved fenders and submission of
designs of wheel guards and power brakes.
In a communication to the board yesterday
General Manager du Pont of the St. Louis
Transit Company, resotted to expressions
which Indicated to President Phillips and
Sewer Commissioner Hermann, as well as to
other members of the Board, that power
brake appliances will not be adopted until
the company feels like so doing.
The du Pont letter was not pleasing to the
board. Mr. Hermann suggested that the
fender and brake laws be tested at once and
that the companies be Instructed to submit
dc!gns for wheel guards. Under the law
cars must be equipped with the new fen
ders by July L The letter was referred to
the Committee on President's Department.
It reads. In part, as follows:

efllclmcy, and such as are In common and
general use In nearly all the cities of this
Union. Whether any other practical, ef
ilclent and approved brake exists, I am not
Informed. Several have elsewhere been
tested and discarded. It Is the policy of
the Transit Company to adopt as speedier
as may be consistent with a just concern
for the safety of Its passengers (to whom it

Interests of the public and its own abilities,

"It would not be prudent business man
agement to equip all of Its cars with ex
perimental brakes; that Is. brakes that had
not stood the test of applied use for quite
a period of time. There are many Inventors
In the tleld. and each one. In the conceit of
self-interest, urges his for adoption.
"I am advised that there Is a patented
mechanical brake In which a very consid
erable local Interest Is taken, ani which
may be urged upon the nttntlon of your
beard. It would cost the Transit Com
pany $400,009. to be expended within sixty
dajs, to put this untried brake upon its
cars. If it failed In practical use your
board could, under the ordinance which
you cite, discredit it within sixty days ana
impose another expenditure as great with
in another sixty days, and so on every
slxtv days In the year.
"Vou observe from this that It Is Im
portant that this company proceed with
the usual business caution, with tests and
exoerlments. before submitting for the con
sideration of your honorable board utiy
brake which it would commend."
