Boomed by all the arts and devices
known to the book boomers, the Story
I Mary MacLane, an unusual and un
conventional, although withal unorig
inal book of last year, attained consid
erable notoriety and the right to be
published in the list of "best sellers"
tor several months. There was nothing
about the Mary MacLane book to cause
a furore there very seldom does seem
any adequate excuse for the Donularity
of popular books but it was exploited
In a manner to arouse the curiosity of
lovers of sensational literature, and
people who had never read any of the
celebrated confessions of literature
upon which it was undoubtedly modeled
found it oddly interesting or amusing.
Also Hamlin Garland and Professor
Oscar Ti'igriis, or some other member
of the freak ' faculty of the Standard
Oil seat of learning in Chicago, read it
and pronounced it good. Mr. Garland
, saM its youri author had a quite in-
comparable style and that ' she was
above all things never to change it or
suffer it to be changed by her further
studies and efforts in a literary wav.
There is evidence in Mi3S Macl-ane's
new book. My Friend Annabel Lee, that
she hps taken Mr. Garland's advice very
seriously, for It Is mainly characterized
by an exaggeration of the affectations
of h?r first production.
It is hard to tell whether Miss Mae
Lane is a conscious or an unconscious
humorist, but if she is the former she'

ever there was a rich joke on any one i
Mary MacLane's books are a great Joke
on Mary MacLane. My friend Anna
bel Lee is really only Another Story of
Mary MacLane, and one wonders why
the author, whose frank egotism might
easily be made a piquant and interest
ing quality if she had the genius's gift
f making the most of her limitations,
did not so entitle it. "Annabel Lee" is
a terra cotta statuette of a Jaoanese
maiden, which Miss MacLane picked
up is that the expression? in a shop
in Boylston street, and the book is a
record of the dialogues in which Anna
bel Lee plays Hennessey to Mary Mac
There is nothing so good in Annabel
Lee as the tooth-brush chapter in the
first book, although the story of the
Kaatenstein children is not so bad. The
rest of the look, however, might be
said to be very "slow going." If Mary
MacLane has any excuse at all for
breaking Into print it is on the score of
naturalness, truth telling and a disre-
:Kard for the convenances as such.
Thuse supposed qualities gave her first
book its voprue, although it required
very little discernment to discover the
insincerities and affectations in that
one, and this second venture leaves no
doubt that Mary MacLane Is only a
foolish little poseur, very young, very
crule and very vain. Bither that or a
mistress of burlesque.
My Friend Annabel Lee Is dedicated
to Miss Lucy Gray, a reader for Her
bert S. Stone & Co., Chicago. Miss Mac
Lane's publishers, and upon whose rec
ommendation the Story of Mary Mac
Lane was accepted. The dedication is a
fair sample of the sort of affected ma

The book is written from the southern

consistent and reasonable.
"Half Hours With the Best Humor
ous Authors." by Charles Morris, has
Just been issued in a new edition by J.
B. Lippincott Company. The selections
by the well-known editor occupy four
volumes, appropriately bound in cloth.
From the same editorial hands has Just
issued a new edition of "Half Hours

Mr. Jack London's new novel, "The
Call of the Wild." has gone promptly
into its third large edition in this coun
try. Its readers seem specially interest
ed in the colored illustrations, which are
reproduced by a new process never be
fore used for illustrating a book, and
which are decorative and imaginative, j
and yet somehow appropriate for a sin
gularly realistic story. It ranks second
on the lists of best selling books for re
cent weeks, being surpassed only by
"The Mettle of the Pasture."
Henry E. Krehblel, the well known
musical critic of The New York Trib
une, contributes an illustrated article to
the September Booklovers Magazine on
the evolution of the pianoforte and its
music An analysis of many programs
adopted by the pianists of toay has
convinced him that too little attention
is given to the music of the century or
two before Bach the period of virginal

those early compositions upon all mu
sical students and pianists.
"Dorothy Vernon of Hsddon Hall" and
"John Ermine of the Yellowstone" are
among the recent novels which have
been dramatized, and which will ap
pear on the stage this fall. Miss Bertha
Galland. is to star as Dorothy in the
play made from Mr. Charles Major's
book, while Mr. James K. Hackett is to
play the title role in Mr. Frederic Rem
ington's story. A more picturesque
hero than Mr. Remington's could hard
ly be thought of. But will the play end
the same way as the novel? This seems
very doubtful; and, indeed, the tragic
ending of the novel does not seem nec
essary. Bruno Leselng's volume of stories,
"Children of Men," will be published
by McClure, Phillips & Co. early in Sep
tember. Mr. Lessing writes of New
York's Ghetto. He knows the life be
cause he has lived it; he knows the peo
ple because he has been one of them,
and these are the facts that eive his
book more than ordinary value. He
shows how the peoDle live, what they
suffer, what they enjoy, the Dassions
that rule them, by vivid transcripts in
story form from real life. The tales are
strong many are grim, but not a few
show the brighter side and verge on
the humorous. The author writes with
great directness and sincerity, which
gives his stories an unusual atmosphere
of reality, and leaves the reader con
vinced that the Cloture is a true one.
"Birds in Their Relations to Man."
the illustrated volume by Clarence M.
Weed and Ned Dearborn, which J. B.
Lippincott Company have Just publish
ed, will appeal with special interest to
the great army of bird-lovers who de
sire to see birds encouraged and pro
tected. It should also appeal to the
sportsman because of its discussion of
the principles of game protection, and
to the horticulturist and agriculturist
because of its scientific review of those
birds which are helpful, and those
which are Injurious to growing crops
and fruit. It is an economic text-book
in its usefulness and yet written in a
style to encourage popular attention.
The American Book company has Just
published "Home and Scobey's Stories
of Great Artists." By Olive Browne
Home and Kathrine Lois Scobey. The
book Is intended for third reader grade.
It offers stories of the lives of great ar
tists, which will make a delightful and
valuable addition to the ordinary course
of study. The authors, finding no ma
terial of such a character available for
school use. prepared these sketches.
The novelty of the subject-matter will
appeal to teachers as well as to pupils,
and will lead to further study of the
lives and works of these great-minded
and simple-hearted men. A specially
noteworthy feature of the book is its
numerous attracive and artistic repro

At a time when the name of Carlyle
is being dragged In the mud by his de
tractors, it is refreshing to come across
Ruskin's testimony in one of the de
lightful letters which he wrote to Mary
Gladstone. "The death of Carlyle," he
writes, "is no sorrow to me. It is. I be
lieve, not an end, but a beginning of his
life. Nay, perhaps, also of mine. My
remorse, every day he lived, for not
having enough loved him in the days
gone by. is not greater now, but less, in
the hope that he knows what I am feel
ing about him at this and all other
moments." It seems that In England,
where the Letters of John Ruskin to M.

object a consideration of the evidence

George Ade gives slang the "go by"

McClure. Phillips & Co. announce for
publication about the middle of this
month. Mr. Ade's "Babel" is Chicago,
about which rushing town it may be
conceded that he knows as much as
anybody. The book contains a sheaf
of brief little stories mirroring the life
of the great western metrcoolis in all
its phases. There are stories of the
"tenements" and stories of the "lake
front." stories of the respectable middle
class, of the unresDectable loafers, of
the police, of the newspaper men, of the
cabby, and of a host of other types that
air. Aae Knows well and has hit off
with remarkable facility and SDtness.
The stories are in all moods, and there
are as many laughs as tears in the vol

slang, Mr. Ade appears in this book as
a splendid literary artist.
'London in the Time of the Stuarts" is
the title of the new book by the late Sir
Walter Besant. which the Macmillan
company will publish in the autumn. Sir
Walter undertook an important work in
several volumes, which were to be call
ed collectively "The Survey of London."
The first volume in the series, "London
in the Eighteenth Century," appeared
last winter, and it is expected that the
third volume will be published next
year. The forthcoming volume, "Lon
don in the Time of the Stuarts." enters
especially into that part of the life of
the great city which appealed to Sir
Walter the manners and customs of
the people of those days, the lives and
habits and amusements of the mer
chants and their wives, customers and
servants, what they ate and drank and
wore, and what they talked about. The
two chapters on "Manners and Cus
toms" and "Society and Aumsements"
occupy a third of the entire volume on
'London in the Eighteenth Century.

and to have delivered its message.
Both Mr. Wagner and the publishers
of the book are constantly receiving
letters from grief-stricken parents who
have lost children, declaring their grat

ceived from "The Better Way, and
asking if Mr. v agner wrote the charm

THE MELANCHOLY CTPRESS
Varied TJsas of This Product of the
Swamps of tha South.
In a recent issue of the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat Ferdinand Tonney de
clares that the axman is fast destrovint
the melancholy cypress, and that the
enormous consumption of the imDerlsh
able wood will soon clear the southern
swamps of their noblest product. Mr.
Tonney says the best specimens are
found in Arkansas and Louisiana. The
lumbermen class the timber as red, yel
low and white, according to the tint of
the wood. In southern Illinois some
years ago there were brakes of a white
variety, but the trees were pigmies when
compared with the yellow cypress gi
ants of the Cache river country in Ar
kansas, and the mammoth red cypress
tree along the Ouachita river. The slow
growth and the uncertain method of re
production leads to the belief, says Mr
Tonney, that before many years the tree
will become extinct The great breaks
are rapidly disappearing before the
modern methods of lumbering, and re
gions which heretofore were regarded as
inaccessible because of the swamp con
ditions are being cut over, and the lum
ber going into the markets at a rat-
surprising even to thoe who are inti
mately acquainted with the Industry.
The antiquated methods of logging, so
slow and cumbersome, nave been re
placed by the up-to-date ideas, and the
new facilities and improvements have
worked wonders in the business.
Mr. Tonney says, further, that Just
now cypress Is the one kind of timber
which has attained a prominent place
on the lumberman s list, and the in
creasing demand and the advancing
price are attracting the attention of
every one who has in any way to deal
with building materials. The com
mercial value of a good cypres brake
is almost beyond the belief of those who
are not familiar with the lumbering in
dustry. The merits of the timber as
adapted to a multiplicity of uses are
without question, and it has taken
rank along with white pine and poplar.
A house may be built these days wholly
of cypress. The frame work, siding,
flooring, lath, shingles and even the in
terior when finished in this remarkable
product of the southern swamps gives
satisfaction, which, is shared alike by
the builder and owner. Strength, dura
bility and beauty of finish combine to
make it popular with the woodworker.
An Instance may be cited where
cvpress was substituted for yellow pine
in the construction of the World's fair
While it Is true that the cypress
brakes in Arkansas are being drawn
upon heavily, there is no danger of Im
mediate depletion. And every cypress
