Eijrht thousand manuscripts were
received bv the Ladies' Home Jour
nal during the year just closed. Each
was given a careful reading, but out
of tbe entire number only eighty were
found wortliv of publication. The
manuscript bureau of the Ladies"
Home Journal is operated at a large
expense, but the hope of discoveiing
new writer or some aspirants with
undevelotted talent warrants the out
lay. It can be seen that the articles
secured by such a careful winnowing
process brings the cost of each up to
and above the remuneration paid our
beat writers. These facts bring re
futation to t he oft-repeated but none
the less erroneous assertion that only
well-known writers of established lit
erary reputation are able to tind a
place for their work in the magazines.
Exactly the contrary is true. Tbe
Ladies' Home Journal, through the
manuscripts considered, has discover
ed three or four new writers of excel
lent merit and great promise, and
this 'find'1 its editor regards as full
warranting the large outlay of main
taining an expensive bureau for read
ing all the manuscripts submitted.

Louis Zangwill's complete novel in
the February number of the New
Lippitcott. entitled The Siren
From Bath, is a refreshing antidote
to the colonial romance which has;
leen so popular for some time past.
Modernity, however, is not by any
means the only merit in Mr. Zang
will's half-humorous. ha!f-pathetic
tale of English life. In it, a stilted,
would-be schoolmaster gets eutangled
in the charms of a siren, whose heart
less conduct leads him into truer
pathways of love. A strong appeal
to one's sympathies is contained in
the second Mormon story in Mrs. J.
K. Hudson's series, begun in the Jan
uary number. A Stake of ion in
the Wilderness is about the courage
ous struggles of a Mormon wife New

Brigbam Young, to her husband, to
