Adlai K. Stevenson's Iteiiiiniscenses
Adlai K. Stevenson, former vie
president, has written some reminm
cences of interest. The volume, bonn
thing of Men I Have Known," will be
published by A. C. McClurg & Co. n
Some idea of the scope of the book
is indicated in Mr. Stevenson's pre
face ,an extract from which reads as
follows: "The period extending from
my first election to congress in 187
to my retirement from the vice presi
dency in 1S97 were years of marvelous
material development to the country
The population of the country had n.l
most doubled; th ratio of representa
tion in the lower house of congress
largely augmented; the entire elector
vote increased from 3C9 to 444. Eight
new states had been admitted into the
union thus increasing the number
of senators from 74 to 90."
The book is principally made up of
anecdotes of the bench, the bar, and
the legislature in Illinois and at Wash
ington. It has historical, political and
personal interest; while Mr. Steven
son's intimate sketches of the many in
teresting personalities he knew a half
century ago bring those times very
close to hand.

and things of the past which former
Vice President Stevenson mentions in

about CO or 70 inhabitants." There is
mention of the case of "Mrs. Gaines

Legal experts declare that; it ;s
virtually impossible to frame a prima y

eplendid work which foreshadows sUll greater performance, is Norman Duncan, .i dpSrrov the world'
of whom the 'London Spectator" which i3 usually chary of praise, said: " It is fr '7dav8 that :
a. pleasure to know that there is a writer in the world from whom we may hope . ne turee aas xnai
lor greater things."
ile was born in the City of Brantford, in 1871, 'and spent eight years at
Mitchell, Ont., and from there entered the University of Toronto. He took almost
the full course, but left before attaining a degree, as the scientific course did not
rrove congenial, and the further he progressed the more distasteful it became,
lis first work at journalism was at Auburn," N.Y., in 1S95 and two years later
he joined the staff of the "Xew York Evening Post." In this literary atmos
phere, which harmonized with his tastes and needs, he began to develop-, and
his first stories tales of life in the Syrian quarter of New York appeared serially.
They were simple, natural, heart-stories, told with sympathy, poetic insight
and dramatic power, and had that subtle quality of refinement and artistic finish
that reveal the personality of a fine mind radiating itself in print. When they
appeared in book form as "The Soul of the Street," they won instant favor with
the discerning ones who appreciate individuality in literature.
Then he turned his attention to the fishermen of Newfoundland and spent
a summer on the "French Shore," the northern section of the eastern coast of
Britain's oldest colony. In this quaint, primitive locality where the spinning
wheel still turns blithely, where no desecrating railroads invade the solitude of
nature or the seclusion of man, and where brave men fight fierce battles with ocean
f-orm for a livelihood, he lived in close companionship with the people and in
"The Way of the Sea," published his Newfoundland stories after they had de
lighted thousands of magazine readers.
Then came " Dr. Luke of the" Labrador," another book in which the reader
feels the sharp, crisp, cool ocean spray in his face as he lives with the people whom
Mr. Duncan has created, and feels with them the little joys and sorrows that make
up their daily lives. In all his stories vital and pulsing with human energy
the work always seems like that of one who thinks in poetry and writes in prose,
the work of one, who. knowing life and its struggles at close range, never permits
his experience to dull the edge of his optimism or of his faith in humanity. Mr.
Duncan is now professor of rhetoric in Washington and Jefferson College, Wash
ington, Pcnn, ,

Dalzell occupied a place in her life
from which no one could dislodge him.
Milly was in the delicious and dreamy
state of indecision which a girl always
prolongs unwittingly. Life was sweet

was aging her father and mother, had

was robbed. Malefactors were rare in
Rosemont, and.the night watchman's
work was perfunctory, but neverthe
less Lewis Thompson discovered a
back window pried open and nearly
$200 worth of silks and laces missing.
Three weeks later he was reduced to
explosive rage by the discovery that
again his store had been entered. This
time it hundred dollars' worth of goods
vanished. In his. wrath the owner of

"Go ahead. Smith." was all that Mal

and paused only for absence of more

this downfall of a man like Malcolm
Dalzell. one of those queer cropping
out of hidden tendencies that some-
fore his preliminary hearing drew lines
in Dalzell's face and gave him a pallor
that usually it takes age to bring. Yet
he maintained those close shut Hps
and, further than stating he was not
guilty, refused to talk.
When he faced his friends and
neighbors at the preliminary bearing
there was a trace of proud defiance In
his glance that yet was strangely hurt
for on many faces he read a dawulng
wavering in allegiance to blm.
Much talk had bred suspicion, and
every one knew of the long rivalry be

harass, to ruin his opponent? So they
waited for the sensationallsclosures.
The sensation came. As usual with
sensations, it was quite different from
what was expected. This white faced

suddenly presented herself struck pity

Milly Wainwright' s voice died away,
but the end of the sentence was fur

to her side and hiding her tears on his
shoulder. Both had made their sacrl

terness had snatched happiness. And

human race, said It served Lewis
