It is called "A Colorado Colonel and Othet Sketches." and is a book of fascinating character stories, replete with droll inci dents which Mr. Campbell has painted with interest and fidelity. It has be come immensely popular. It is a col lection of twenty sketches of life and scenes in Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado New Mexico and Arizona. There are scores of fine half-tone engravings illustrating western life. There is a fable from Tom McNeil's book which gives the reader an impres sion of that gentleman's lucid breezy style. "The Uhymes of Ironquill" hv Eu gene F. Ware calls for the following notice: "The people of Kansas regard Kusrene F. Ware with affection and pride. And this is proper, for no state was ever blessed with a son more true and devoted. The noble achievements of Kansas and her sublime aspirations to future greatness and glory find ex pression in his poems. They embrace and portray every mood of the prairies. They are responses to the charm of the fascination of Kansas for those who come into communion with her plains, her streams, her rolling- woodlands, her fertile fields and prolific orchards." W. K. Connelley's "John Brown" which is one of the best discussions of tne me 01 ana acts of tne veteran abolitionist receives the attention it merits. There are also books bv Senator Geo. Campbell, Ellen Palmer Allerton, Prof. Ulackmar and many other enterprising Kansans in Mr. Crane's catalogue. It is profusely illustrated. It brings distinctly before the public what Kansas is doing in literature. The firm which is acting as its sponger de serves the support and encouragement of the public. ALL ABOUT TENNIS. Good Book Now Beady With Others Coming on Shooting and Cricket. "I, awn Tennis at Home and Abroad" is a very attractive book, just published by George Newnes and imported by the Scrihners. It is edited bv A. Wallis Myers and contains contributions by II. who may desire to know something, both by pen and picture, of the condi- describes the many British champion ships. Mr. llolcotnbe Ward writes most interestingly of American methods. Tennis in other lands is also described and there is much other matter of in terest and villus. The Scrihners also announce the first two books of the "Country Life Sporting Library," which is edited by Horace K. Hutchinson. One covers shooting in two volumes, the other cricket. Kaeh sub ject is covered by a well known expert. ABOUT MR. WRIGHT. Facts in the Life of the Kansas thor-Preacher. Au Harold Bell Wright, the Kansas author-preacher-artist, is an interesting study, as well as being himself a stud ent of sociology. Not many months ago when a nearby town was in a great state of excitement and an angry mob was gathering to lynch a couple of ne groes, he was known to take the first train for the scene of action for the purpose of mingling wdth the crow-rl and studying men under this phase of ex citement. Of all places in Pittsburg, Kan., Mr. Wright's home is peculiarly located, be ing next to the corner on Kansas ave nue, intersecting' Catalpa avenue. On the four corners of these two avenues stand homes representing business, pol itics, the saloon and labor, with the church on the side. On the southeast corner stands the beautiful home of one of the biggest mine operators in south- 4 ' We have a full line of Educational, Law, and Miscellaneous Books of our own manufacture.

On the northwest corner is the large and comfortable dwelling of one of Pittsburg's best known saloonkeepers, and on the south west corner stands the small and modest but well kept house of a miner. A few years ago the temperance peo ple started a campaign to close Pitts burg's Sunday saloons. The preachers were depended upon to open up the ave nues of action. The fight became so bitter that the ministers, with the ex ception of Mr. AVright, left the city, temporarily, for safety. Mr. Wright won the battle by having the saloons closed on Sunday, but had his home partially torn away by a bomb for his pains. Upon the occasion of his birthday, la ter, he was presented with a tine saddle horse, and partly paid for by these same dispensers of strong drink as a testimonial to a true fighter and a Christian gentleman. "We are curious to know how Rev. Mr. Wright would handle the social problem in a modern novel. "That Printer of Cdell's," his first book, has already gone into the third edition, tenth thou sand, and is the most extensively re viewed book of the year. Mr. Wright is in his thirtieth year, works hard, lives modestly, and has a very interesting little family. BOOK NOTE8. Various Items About Books Which Are Attracting Attention. Four American girls, pupils of the famous singing teacher Mme. Mathilde Marchesi, sang at the latter's recital in Paris on June 3, and made a capital impression. They were Miss Alice Haeseler, Milwaukee; Miss Therese. Murba, Cincinnati; Mrs. Baird, New Jersey, and Miss Claudia Hockenhull, Boston. Of these Miss Murba, Miss Hockenhull and Mrs. Baird were es pecially commended in the press, the American pupils receiving the lion's share of praise in proportion to their number in the opera and concert classes. Mme. Marchesi once consented to write about her methods of teaching, and produced "Ton Pinging Lessons," which was published by the Harpers a feu- years ago. She also wrote a volume of reminiscences of her many dis tinguished friends and pupils including Mendelssohn, Liszt, Itossini, Melba and published it under the title of "Marchesi and Music." In private life she is the Marchese della Rajata di Oastrone. Last year she celebrated her golden wedding. Henry Mills Alden's philosophical work, "A Study of Death," is being is sued in a new edition of Harper te Bros. Mr. Alden spent live years in writing this volume, which has giver him a place among the profound think ers of our time. He is an interesting example of an author who did not write: until his experience beeam fully ripe. In lSt;; Mr. Alden lectured before tht. I,owell institute in Boston, and when in lS'JO he produced his remarkable in terpretative work, "(Jod in His World." it represented the precipitation of thfc thought of nearly thirty years. This hook he wrote in one year, amid va. rious distractions; it flowed from hi.i pen without effort, the work of a seer and poet. "A Study of Death," on the other hand, was written with the pre cision and method of the student of philosonby. "Peggy O'Neal was greatly slan dered," writes the historian Parton, "and when she was about to enter thr social circle in Washington the ladies cried, -Horrible to contemplate! Forbid it. decency! Forbid it, Oeneral Jack son!' " The general, then president of the I'nited States, defended Pegg-y O'Neal; and in a letter in Peggy's de fense to the Rev. Dr. Kly, of Philadel phia, the president wrote as follows: " 'It puts me in mind of a tale circu lated here the other day that I was seized with snasms in the stomach which would have occasioned my death but for the immediate assistance of Die Henderson, who saved me.' Now. the truth is I had no spasms, nor had I ever sen or heard of Dr. Henderson before. But still the tale was told, and. believed. When a. friend of mine' con tradicted it the reply was, 'I have it from the mouth of Dr. Henderson him self; it must be true.' Unless 1 am mis. taken, when the facts connected with this attempt to blast the reputation of Peggy O'Neal are brought to light, it will be found to have few- parallel cases." an the novel, "Peggy O'Neal " published by the Drexel Biddle Co Andrew Jackson, the president anfi duelist, defends her. Among the Scrihners publications for June is a unique book for sportsmen by Dwight W. Huntington, entitled "Our Feathered Game." The author's object is to describe all the game birds of the United States and to tell where and how they may be shot. With tho airt nf I the descriptions and of the photographs, i, ainrticji win ue a rue to laentity any bird. Chapters on Guns and Dogs and on Game Clubs and Preserves em phasizes the thoroughness with which the subject is discussed. The author has shot nearly everyone of the birds about which he writes and is a recog nized authority in field sports. He draws upon his personal recollections for many interesting anecdotes and in structive incidents. His book consists of forty-seven chapters, and treats fully and entertainingly of every variety of feathered game. The book is illustrated with R full-page shooting scenes in color and 135 bird portraits. The novel in Ainslee"s for July Is "The Ribboned Way." by S. Carleton, author of "The Corduroy Road." Other famil iar names among the contributors are Justus Miles Firman, author of "A Bit of Grease Paint" and "Journeys End;" Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Charles G. D. Roberts, Guy Wetmore Carryl, author of "The Lieutenant Governor;" George Horton, Joseph C. Lincoln and Robert Loveman. y "The Metempsychosis of the Ogdens," by Edward S. Van Zile. the novelette w ith which the July number of The Smart Set opens. Is as humorous apiece of fiction as has recently appeared, and for summer reading it will be found delightful to while away a pleasant hour. The father of a beautiful young society girl, through the instrumentality of an apparently harmless Oriental curio which he possesses, is forced to assume, for a short time, his daughter's id-ntity. The adventures which befall them are ludicrous in the extreme. There is a laugh in every line of the story. ' F. O. Jones and How He Earned His Living" is the title of a volume which the Macmillan company has recently imported. Mr. R. S. Warren Bell avows that his book is ostensibly for boys. It records the experiences of a young Eng lishman whose father somehow failed to provide for his future, and who made his way by pluck and perseverance and keeping his head, to a nice position and happiness. It is very thoroughly Brit ish indeed: a story of boarding school life that fairlv runs over with the at mosphere of the British school and the British school boy and his doings. Mr. Thomas Nelson Page's new novel, 'Gordon Keith," is already the great success of the season. The first edition of Fin.ann went so quickly that the second edition was on the press about the time the hook was published. The way it is selling is shown by the fact that one big firm put in its second order of 5,000 I copies three days after the noved was published. Since the war with Spain, thanks to the strenuous commander of the Rough Riders, the cowboy has risen from the ranks of the dime novel to that of bound fiction. Mr. Owen Wister has shown in his "The Virginian" what can be made of him bv a skilful hand. In "The Log of a Cowboy," by Andy Adams (Hough ton, Mifflin & Co.), we have something that sounds a little more like the real thing. It is a story of a great drive of cattle from Texas into Montana, twenty years ago, with all the incidents and adventures that were likely to occur in such an expedition. The narrative is in the first person and has all the marks of verisimilitude. Very likely It is a true storv. At any rate, the reader will derive from it a lively sense of what the life Mr. Roosevelt admires is like. There is plenty of action and adventure in the book, which, if not writen by a real cowboy, reads very much as though it had been. N. Y. Sun. The vogue of Mrs. Ely's "A Woman's Hardy Garden," seems only to be in creased bv the coming into the field of rival volumes. Of the flood of garden books that followed "Elizabeth and He German Garden" most were of English origin; and the American gardeners who followed them came to grief be cause an English winter and a New England winter are not the same, and because English soil is not American clay and dirt, and because American gardens cannot be made with the help of English books. Mrs. Ely's book was the first American volume to contain just the practical instructions which the i amateur gardener seens; ana it nns been in greater demand than almost any volume of fiction published this year, with the exception of perhaps half a dozen. Mrs. Ely's middle name, by the way, is Rutherfurd, and not Ruth erford, as many newspaper writers have erroneously spelled it. The name comes to her from a very old Scotch family with a history running back nearly a thousand years. Harper's Weekly for June 13 contains two pages of photographs on the sub ject of the recent disatrous cyclone at Gainesville, Ga., which graphically il lustrate the extent of the ruin wrought bv the tornado. The same issue con tains, also, some strikingly interesting; pictures of the flooded districts of To peka and Kansas City. Prof, George P. Garrison brings out the interesting fact in his popular his tory of "Texas" just published, that the first official name for the region which now comprises the Lone Star state was Nuevas Filipinas or New Philippines. So we now possess both the new and the old Philippines, but only New Mexico as yet. It is said, by the way, that President Roosevelt is greatly interested in the history of Texas and hopes some time to write a book on that subject. Mr. Carleton Noyes, author of "The Enjoyment of Art," sailed on June 6 for Italy and will spend the summer 'n Lurope. Prof. Hugo Munsterberg-, author of "American Traits," has also just gone abroad as the official repre sentative of the St. Louis exposition. He will make an effort to secure the co-operation of the German g-overnment and of the educational institutions of Germany in the international congress of science to be held at St. Louis next year. The discussion which is afoot over Carlyle's domestic relations, directs at tention to the letters to his youngest sister. Jenny. These' letters, published by Houghton, Mifflin & Co.. reveal, as no other of his writings do, the tender ness of his affection and the depth of his heart. During a hill in the proceedings incident to the investigation of the bribery charges in the postoffice department at Washing ton, Mr. Samuel Maddox, an attorney in the case, said to Postoffice Inspector Mayer: "Mayer. I am reading Anna Katherine Green's new- hook, 'The Filigree Ball.' You ought to read it. It might help you out in your work." Mr. Mayer replied: "Glad you're read ing that book. Keep at it and you'll be a lawyer after while." The laugh went with Mr. Mayer's reply. "Robert Morris: Patriot and Financier," is the title finally selected for the forth coming biography by Ellis Paxson Oher holtzer. The Macmillan company announce the volume for publication during June or July. There will be two portraits of Mor ris and one of his wife, beside other illus trations. Andy Adams, whose "Log of a Cowboy" Is making quite a stir, is familltarly known at the family home in Indiana as "Texas Andy," as there are several other Andys in the family. He n. fused to go to college and his twentieth year found him on the plains of Texas in full cowboy war paint. He soon became a rancher on his own ac count and owned large herds of cattle and horses. For ten years he followed this life and became familiar with every mile between the Rio Grande and the headwa ters of the Missouri. His herds, however, were linally caught in a fierce "nor' wester" and swept away. He then became a real estate boomer ot Rockport and Aransas Pass, Tex., and made a larfre fortune, but kept his holdings too long. The failure of the deep water scheme made his property practically valueless, and, gathering: hia remnants together, he shook the dust from Texas from off his feet and in the early Z)s turned up at Colorado Springs on the min ing board of trade, where he" prospered ex ceedingly. He became largely interested in the silver mines at Aspen, and when silver went broke he kept his white metal good company. He says he has waved a fond farewell to three fortunes during the last twenty years and finds the job very diverting. The people of the United States have gained the reputation of beinji; the greatest liction readers in the world, but now they seem to be moving on to higher tnings. The great mass of people which the stu pendous advertising campaigns carried out In the last half dozen years by publish ers added to the "reading public," Is ready for another step has already graduated, in fact, from tiction to a much more earn est and discerning literary if you will kind of reading. "I am encouraged," said a w-ell known critic of a New York literary journal, in private conversation recently, "when I see the success that more thoughtful bonks are meeting with today. I have been disgusted in recent years by the enormous popularity of swash-buckling historical novels and novels that succeed only by specious cleverness, a flagrant sen sationalism, and in many cases by a pure indeoencv. Recently I was told by the publishers of the book that Charles Wag ner's essavs on the art of living, 'The Simnle Life.' had sold 25.000 copies in a little over a year. Certainly a large num ber for a book with a more or less serious purpose. Wagner's new book. 'The Better Way,' a volume similar in purpose to the first, I was informed was running rapidly through editions and had now sold more than a great many fiction books considered by publishers as among the successes of the season. I believe that the American people are turning to more solid litera ture, and I for one am glad of it." The p?rson who rends "IVspotism and Pemoeraev." the recently published novel of Washington life, will find himself ask ing two questions: First Who is it who knows enough of Washington society and politics to write so unhesitatingly aboat them; and second, has the writer drawn from models or just imagined his people? The first question might be answered by attributing the work to some experienced Washington journalist any man who has been a dozen or so years at the capital in close touch with people and things-uch a person as William fvlroy Curtis of the Chicago Record-Herald for instance. The second will give more trouble in the solu tion. There are certainly characters in the book who bear resemblance to men prom infnt in Washington politics, as Represen tative Crane. "The Wctndrous Boy." so handsome, so engaging and with such a gift of oratorv: and Senator Bicknell. the (-"it bo from the middle western state, who wields such despotic power.

There is scarcely a character in the dram atis personae that would not suggest someone to a person familiar with political and social Washington, but whether the author had anyone In mind while writing, that s the question. Not the least remarkable feature of the illustrations in The Booklovers Magazine for June is their wide range. A dozen or more full page portraits, nearly all in tint, reveal some of today's "grand old men" and some of Its notable workers. Mr. W. J.

RELIGIOUS THOUGHT. Gems Gleaned from the Teachings of All Denominations. Religion is not something brought to man from without, but it is a response from within Rev. S. S. Ames, Meth odist, Hyde Park, 111. The great resources of life are not railroad stocks or money in banks. The great resources are always relig ious ones. Rev. L. C. Barnes, Bap tist, Worcester, Mass. The fact that the bible is a growth does not necessarily invalidate its full est inspiration. Growth is the divine method. This is true of the creation. Rev. J. K. Smyth, Swedenborgian, New York. If, like the first disciples, we yearn to come up and sit beside the Master on his throne of power, it means that we must climb up thither from where we are. Rev. Pearse Pinch, Congrega tionalism Chicago. Justice, to be justice, must include mercy, and anything that we include in our thought of mercy that is not in Justice is not good and ought not to be exercised at all. Rev. David Utter, Unitarian, Denver. The cross was an emblem of ignominy and shame until Jesus Christ went forth bearing a cross. But a marvel ous change has taken place, for it is now an emblem of love and sacrifice. Rev. Dr. John T. M. Johnston, Baptist, St. Louis. Jesus Christ Is the revealer of God in his moral attributes. We can know God through natural religion, but we know him as a God of love and the author of moral love through Christ. Rev. Dr. Francis L,. Patten. Presby terian, Princeton, N. J. THE USE OF THE TONGUE. It is a good rule to say nothing of a person except it be good. The man who says no evil of any ons will have less to repent of. The tongue should be re strained to keep it from profanation, and it should be active to speak out for he Lord's side. Rev. Dr. Alonzo Monk. Methodist, Atlanta, Ga. NOT AN INVENTION OF MAN. Religion is something that a man cannot invent for himself and cannot keep to himself. The man who thinks that he has about enough religion to save himself is in a doubtful position. That man probably has not enough to save his own soul. Rev. Dr. Henry Van Dyke, Presbyterian, Princeton, N. J. THE BROTHERHOOD OF CHRIST. We used to talk of the kingdom of God, which was something far off, vague and indistinct. Now we talk of the kingdom of man. Christ's brother hood, the kingdom of God on earth. The church that will stand at the end of the century is the one that does the work of Christ. Rev. Dr. Gunnison, Univer salis!, Canton. N. Y. . . THE CHURCH AND SCIENCE. For a member of the church everv genuine discovery of science is wel come and a new- manifestation that th finger of God is there. We rest secure in the synthesis of the natural and the supernatural, knowins that in this life we see as through a glass darkly, but in the vision of God we shall see even as we are seen. Rev.

Oh, the destroying power of sin! Some years ago a diver was sent down to explore the bottom of the sea. While there he thrust his hand into a hole which seemed to be the retreat of some kind of a living reature. In stantly his arm was seized as by a vise. The long tentacles of an octopus wound themselves about his arm. He dared not give the signal for the friends over head to pull him up for he knew that his arm would be pulled off, but he had presence of mind enough to take a sharp steel knife which he had strapped to his side, and with it he cut off the arms of that octopus, and when the diver was pulled up attached to his body were the arms of that octopus, still clinging, ore of the tentacles over eight feet long. The octopus of secret sin has many a man and woman in a fatal clutch. Rev. Dr. Frank De Witt Talmage, Fresbyterian. Chicago. THE GREATNESS OF JESUS. What to the greatness of Jesus? It was and is forevermore the only greatness that will stand the tet of time, the greatness of the spirit. The cross, now the most powerful fact in history, show us that man's real glory lies not in the possession of many things, not in the reputation, not in popularity, not in fame, but in the alle giance of his soul to truth and in the fealty of his conscience to the good. This is greatness, according to the teaching of the cross of Christ. It is the greatness of magnanimity, of hu mility, of purity of spirit, of gentle ness, ot charity, of considerateness and of amenity, always and in ev ery situation of life amenity. It is loyalty to our light unto the very end. And this soul greatness has this bles ed and glorious advantage. It may be universal.
