by Mrs. Humphrey Ward, which has at

In Harper's Magazine, comes from the
Harper prep thH wee!; in handsome book

and with a fine plenty of action nnd Inci

Yet. though It his Just been said that
"I.ady Rose's Daughter" Is not first and
foremost a study of temperament, the, fact
remains 'hat the strange prsomllly of
Julie Le Ilreton dominates the story from

mfn and women In old Lady Henry Dela

breath, just as it was to Sir Wilfred Bury,
returned from a flo ears' sojourn In Te
heran and hastening to lslt I."dy Henry,
his lifelong friend, whose "silon" Is tho
most famcus In England. It Is the mjstery
of the doralmnce of Julie Le Breton, paid
companion to I-ady Henry, who has, some
how, made herself the central figure In her
mistress's society "They are not here for
me these people." says the old noble
woman, quKering. "They are here como

woman whom I took In, In a moment of

Behind this perplexing truth there Is a
secret which In the end Justifies and ex
plains the fact of Julio Le Breton's Irresist

general utility woman. A hint ot the se
cret's nature Is glen In the first ch-ipter,

with. Sir Wilfred Bury and again when Sir
Wilfred suddenly beholds the face of old
Lord Lackington In the British Foreign Of
fice; -old Lord Lackington, "whose per
sonality was still, at 73, charming to most
women and challenging to most men" It
Is then that a flash of the truth comes to
Sir Wilfred and a keen suspicion to the
mind of the reader. "Of course! Of course:"

Henrj's words, "She is not like her mother,

wto ultimately find the explanation of the
temperament and magnetism of Julie Le
Breton, of the charm which rallied around
her In protest against Lady Henry's harsh
ness the most brilliant men In London and
some of the best women, notably the cry
lorable Duchess of Crowborough, a flippant
ly steadfast little woman whom we grow to
hold ery close to our hearts as the story
The girl Is a puzzling study. She Is
the daughter of a man ard woman who
wero not husband and wife, but she Is of
the nobility of England and the spirit of
race is strong In her. Her mother was
capable of sacrifl-ing all things for Ioe. Her
father was a. dreamer and the Don Quixote
of all the "lost causes" of his day. Her
maternal grandfather was that astounding
combination, an English Lord, who was
also a painter, a poet and a graceful and
whimsical adorer of women. He Is one of
the most delightful characters of the story,
a man who had entertained Bjron In his
jouth, who retained a boy's heart In h!a
bosom to tho last, who ,een on his death
bed, said of life "I hae cnJoed It all
pictures, politics, society, c erj tiling!" It
Is from these founts of he-cdlty that Julie
Le Breton's personality was born, and the
subtleness of euch a temperament is pre
sented by Mrs; Ward with the most delicate
strokes of character drawing.
Of the dramatic qualities of "Lady Rose's
Daughter" It may only be said that they
brir.g Into evidence a more genuine gift for
storj -telling proper than has heretofore
been manifested by this writer, successful
though she has'already )c,cn. The, three
cornered loe affair of Julie Leu-Brotbri?
Jacob Delaheld and Captain Warkworth Is
admirably conceded and handled with great
enev.lireness, the rescue of Julie by Dcla
fleld at the moment of her sorest womanly
need on tho night of her arrhal In ParU
to meet Warkworth being, perhapn, the
culmination of tho storj 's dramatlo
strength. In a like spirit of competent abil
ity are handled the touching scenes bctwyn
this daughter of an unhallowed union and
her fastidious grandfather, the scena in
which he discovers her identity being es
It la more than likely that "Lady Rose's
Daughter" will pro.e to be the most pop
ular of Mrs. Humphrey Ward's novels. This
Is not to bo regretted, since It is artistical

TWO GOOD STORIES.
"Tlie Tnrqnoljw Cup" find "The Dea
ert," by Artlinr Coaalctt Smith, Aro
Well Worth AVIUle-.
The Cardinal Archbishop of Venice In
Mr. Arthur Coss'ett Smith's norelette,
"The Turquoise Cup." published this week
by the Scribners, Is ery like the Ulndly
and humorous prelate whom we all Iocd
In Mr Henry Harland's nnel of two jears
ago, "The Cardinal's Snuff-Bo."
Also does tho turquoise cup, from which
the new story takes Its name, suggest tho
snuff-box of Mr.-Harland's storj. Inasmuch
as It Is tho Instrument, In the Cardinal's
hands, of bringing two fond heirts to
gether. Tho only difference Is that. In the
one case, a Cardinal emploj-es a snuff-box
In Cupid's service of his own olltion.
while.in the other, the. utilization of a tur
quoise cup is forced upon him my the
heroine's determination to possess that
beautiful treasure ot Us church, eien if
her sneethcirt gets himself Into all sorts
of trouble by securing it for her.
Nevertheless. Mr. Smith's story makes
pleasint reading nnd is told In a erj- deft
and attractive manner. It3 characters are
few. but ther are of the light-comedy
school and we llko them and enjoy their
wajs. Tho Cardinal must be viewed as the
central figure of the little romance, but he
does not dominate at the expense ot the
other members of the cast. Lady Nora
Daly, a dazzling and Jojous Irish nob'e
noman. Is tho heroine, and a erj- charm
ing heroine sho makes. The Eurl of Vaux
hall "Bobby." to his friends 13 the hero,
and he wins our sympathies by the hon
esty of his great lojo for Iady Nora and
by his British Inability to follow tho varia
tions of her exuberant Celtic spirits. Mr.
I'helim Blake, cousin to Lady Nora and
verj- much in love with her. in a laugh
ingly hopeless waj is a dashing Irish, gen
tleman who recalls tho handsome and
reculess Irishmen so plentiful In Lever's
novels. And as for Mls3 O'Kelly. the Lady
Xora's aunt and chaperone. sho Is 'an
Irishwoman of qualitj' whom you couldti't
help but like.
Ineso are the principal characters In Mr.
Smith's storj' and they play their part ery
acceptablj' In a; sunlit corned' under Vene
tian sklet. As for the xtorj' Itself, the part
played bj- the turquoise cup, and why the
Cardinal Archbishop was led to make use
of it for the greater happiness ot "Bobby,"
Earl of Vauxhall, and thu Ladj- Xora Dalj-,
It wouldn't bo quite fair to tell sou that.
It Is permissible, however, to refer j-ou to

you will encounter another, "The Desert,"
bound between the same covers, and jou
are at once transported from the richness
and beautj- ot Venice to the forbidding deso
lation of Sahara. In tho latter storj-, Mr.
Smith seems to have depleted with con
siderable skill and faithfulness, the life of
which he tells. It Is a melodramatic storj",
with the happiest of endings, and Its action
takes place within the time-limit of a cara
van Journey from tho little oasis of El
Merb to tho military post ot Brlskra, an
Important desert market.
The storj- Is simply told and the details
of a caravan Journey across tho desert are
presented with much vlvldnesa The plot
contains a mj-stery which keeps the read
er's interest keen to the verj end. and tho
solution then reached is dramatlcallj- con
&stent and satlsfactorj". Mr. Smith has
a clear and natural literarj- st le. His Judg

was encouraced In her purpose bj- MrsGer
The novel by Mrs. Older ha.s for ltu
theme the San Tranclsco riots which grew
out of the agitation against Chinese cheap
labor, and for Its hero a sort of Idealized
and mjstcrious Dennis Kearnej-, famous at
that time for his "ar.d lot" eloquence and
his persistent cry of "The Chinese must
go!" This hero, Strj-ne. !s an unknown
ms.n, whose childhood was spent among the

of the rich and fortunate ones of life. He
Is the head of tho anti-Chinese movement
In the storj". as was Dennis Kearnej" In real
life. But. unlike Kearnej", he Is a man of
polished manners upon occasion and Is so
drawn as to suggest an aristocrat in dis
guise The character will doubtless attract
the fancj- of readers who relish a strong
clarfi of melodrama and of picturesque pos
ing. Mrs. Olaer's book is Interesting in a way,
but would have been more -forcible and con
vincing If, with such a theme as was chosen,
she had kept more closclj- to the real peo
plo, who figured Jn tho movement of which
she tells Strj ne does not Impress one as a
vital figure, nor does such a' character as
the TTlnco Ruspoll, cousin to his Majesty.

part of such a story or its environment.
Xev ertheless. ho Is almost the leading1
masculine character, triumphing over
Stnne for tho love of the wealthy Theo

what tiresome little coquette whom ho
finally makes the Princess Ruspoll, and, be
ing "In at the death" of Strjne when the
latter is killed while leading a socialist re
bellion In Rome.
The author of "The Socialist and the
Prlnco" can do better than sho has done
with in this novel. She has a terse and
dramatic narrative stjle, but in tho present
instance she has allowed her storj" to run
away with her. ana surrendered too largely
to a predilection for theatric characters.
JOH STRA-NOD IVI.NTER'S "MARTY."
A IVnvcl Ahlch Present the Problem
or llnrriage Out of One'. Station la
u Fairly Interesting and Readable
John Strange Winter, a successful writer
who, as manj" readers know. Is not a
"John" at all, but belongs to the feminine
gender, has added another to her long list
of novels After reading "Marty" one In
clines to believe, erroneously, that tho
author belongs to tho singular number; for
It Is difficult to realize that a married
woman could havo written such a story of
married life. Not that there Is whollj" want
Ins an insight to the matrimonial relation
but the heroine Is made of stuff suggest
ing the substance of a sentimental spin
ster's dreams. Tet there Is a certain flesh
and blood about Martj- which endears her
in spite of the fact that she behaves as no
real wife would.
"Mart j " Is a sort of problem novel de
signed for chaste cars. The problem Is sim
plecan j'oung people of different social
rank wlselj- afford to intermarry? The
question Is answered rather comfortably
for the reader, bi.t In a manner which In
volves strained, uncomfortablo and un
natural behavior bj- the heroine.
In spite of tho story's defects It has tho
"Interesting" quality. Having begun It the
reader Is Impelled to finish. The author per-fectlj-
understands tho value of suspended
Interest, -which element of tho storj'-teller's
art she has deftlj- employed.

Bor George P. Garrison, of tho University
of Texas. Mr. Frank G. Sanborn of Con
cord is writing the history of his native
State. "New Hampshire," and the other
eeven volumes will be: "Wisconsin," by Mr.
Reuben G. Thwaites, secretary of the State

nized as one of the- foremost English stu
dents of Russian character and customs, and
has been In close touch with Gorky in all
ho has done. These facts give his work es
