There is a new poet in Kansas who makes a claim to distinction. His name is Colfax P.orgroyne Harman and he lives at Valley Falls. He has just pub lished in his own office a pretentious volume under the title "Poems of Sen timent." The book includes LS5 poems. The volume is well printed and neatly bound and is a credit to Mr. Harman's mechanical skill as well as to his muse. There are many good things in the book verses which Bound the depth of poetic feeling. Here is a stan za culled from his poem "Love and Joy;" "Love stood upon the brink of Joy's deep fountain. When life was youngr. A crystal stream gushed forth from Nature's mountain. In buoyant song." Here is another good example: "If you were by my side, dear, I'd ask no other boon. No grief, nor sorrow, know- or fear, For all would vanish soon. If you were by my side." Mr. Harman runs the entire gamut of human emotions, but it is in the sentimental that he excels. It requires a man of nerve to launch a book of poetry on the market, but Mr. Harman can afford to indulge. He is a successful editor and if his book does not bring him riches he will not mourn because he is in a position to sing for the sake of the song and be cause there is music in his soul. The book is made to sell for $1. Harold McGrath's new book. "Hearts and Masks," is published by the Bobbs Merrill company.

Phillips & Co. This pheaf of negro folklore tales has just the same sly. chuckling humor that made the first book a beloved vol ume to the old and voung in thou sands of households.

' Each volume is com plete in itself. and contains a vignette introduction, biographical and critical, by an authority of the highest repute. The books are neat, compact, clearly printed, and handsomely hound, and the paper is of the best. The text is printed in two colors, red and black, giving the page bright and at the same time a tasteful appearance. The author of "The House of a Thousand Candles" gave his heroine a name which was. so far as he knew, purely imaginary. Marian Dcvereux struck Mr. Nicholson as graceful, un usual and distinguished and he had never known any one namd Devenuix in his life. But only a few days after the launching of the novel, Mr. Nich Olson received a letter from a young woman living not many miles from the scene of the story, asking by what right her proper baptismal name had been used in the tale. Mr. Nicholson now wonders whether his copyright of tho good is good as against the claim of a real Marian Devereux, whose his tory he has written with so much par ticularity. Glenarm. the name of the hero of the story, is the name of a prominent street in Denver, where Meredith Nicholson formerly lived. "The Pang Yanger," by Elma A. 1 ravis, is a recent publication of Mc Clure, Phillips & Co. It is a strong story. A "Pang-Yanger" is one who works at Yang-Yang, a remote moun tain settlement in Delaware county, N. Y.. chiefly devoted to the tanning in dustry, and in the old days one of the wickedest regions in that part of the world. Abijah Bead was a Pang Yanger for a brief period in his late boyhood and young manhood. A holo caust occurred and he fled to the far west and there accumulated a fortune and returned to his native city of Hurstville to perplex his neighbors by his conduct and his speech and fin ally to shock them to the point of scandal by bringing to town a five-year-old boy whom he introduces as his son. Inasmuch as nobody has ever heard of his marriage, the community is at once agog. A certain strone re semblance suggests the maternity of tne cnna and the wagging tongues are set going afresh. The story of Abijah Bead's career, the advent of a young southern girl, who fascinates him. his embarrassment through having already one wife who has ignored her ties and married again and finally the tragic climax and solution ofthe problem is told vividly, with humor and dramatic effectiveness.

Mr. Bowser had come home ftom the office half an hour ahead of time, and when Mrs. Bowser asked for an ex planation he replied: "I am going cut this evening, and there are two cr three little things I want to .see to first." "Is it to a club?" "Yes. There's going to be big turn out at the Old Jay's club this evening ing. :md a vote will be t.iken to sc1 who is the must popular member." "But the last time you went to the Old Jay's you c::rne home mad. Von SMid thev snubbed you." "Smibbod ire' Not on your life! You in;-,t have ici me and some oiv :!. mixed up.

To hear your words a stranger would think I was a born fool and that you were my guardian." "Then we won't talk about it any more. I'll help you get ready, and do you go along and have a good time." Mr. Bowser stood and glared at her for a minute and-then marched off up staira to . change his clothes. . There was something else he '.wanted to say, but he hung off about it until his good nature was partly restored and he had come down again. Then he tried to look indifferent as he said: "I have got a nint or two that my friends are going to . put me forward tonight, and it may be just possible that I will be voted the most popular mem ber." "That will be nice." replied Mrs. Bowser, as she retied his neck-tie. "You'd l"t 'em We if they wanted to. wouldn't you?" ' "Whv, certainly." "And if I am declared elected and thev call for a speech ." "Then make one, of course. Just get up and say that you feel honored woulun t iraue puMiwna mi president of the Umjtftd States glad you are one of the Old Jays, and so "on and so forth. Don't attempt too much. Now you are ready." 1 "I may not be home before mid night." "Never mind if you are not home before davlight. As you say. this Who Would Attempt to Work Any Game On Me. thing occurs only once a year, and you can afford to dissipate a little. Sure you have got your latch key? Well, run along now." . Mrs. Bowser's sudden change of front was a puzzle to Mr. Bowser, but after thinking it over for a while he decided that it was one of those eases where it was "just like a woman," and arrived at the club with a feeling of anticipation. What occurred .there was told two hours later by himself in his own home. At 10 o'clock. as Mrs. Bowser sat reading and the cat was doing the purring act on the hearth, there came an uncertain noise at the front door a noise as of some one pawing over it. When it had continued for a couple of minutes she went down the hull and swung the door wide open. ;ith the aid of her extended hand Mr. Bowser entered. In spite, of the fact that be was bareheaded and all mussed up, that his coat pockets were full of hav, that a porous plaster had been stuck on the back of his overcoat and his patent leather shoes painted over with white paint. -it was Mr. Bowser. "Come In and tell me all about it." said Mrs. Bowser, as she hung up his coat and led him along to the sitting room. He looked at her in an owlish sort of wav fjr a minu;e. and then the tears started in his ryes. When he could control his emotion he said: "Well. I got there. "Bverybody glad to see me. 7:vervbodv" said I was a good feller Everybody slapped me on the back and said: 'Hello. Bowser. "And of coarse you had a drink or t-'o." "VC5."

Martha Chester invited Isobel arid Jean and Marv Arthur to the Saturday matinee. Mrs. Chester chaperoned them and they sat in the very front box and had a gorgeously beautiful time. The "plav" was fine, the heroine was lovely, but the hero was the most won derful person any of thefour had ever set eyes upon. He was""very tall and straight and had a beautiful mip of yellow hair, which, on great occasions, he shook back with terrific energy. Mrs. Chester thought he looked as if he didn't know very much, but the girla said that was sacrilege and only grown-up prejudice, and all declared they were madly jealous of the hero ine. When the play was over they went to the Palm Room and had all sorts of goodies to eat, after which they took the car home, most happy and in debted to Martha and her mother for the; great treat. , Jean and Isobel" had a deal to talk over concerning the play and its hero for some time after that. They even acted over several scenes in Isobel's room and wondered very much what the hero was like off the stage. Frost and cold and snow came early. and Mr. Strickland soon received a no tice to the effect that the skating club, of which, he was a -member, was opened for the winter season. He turned the card" over to Isobel and told her to eujoy herself. ' Isobel' promiiTly Tepalred to the club alone, for no one seemed able to go with her that afternoon. The skating pond consisted of several vacant city lots, nearly a block in extent. The space was fenced in and hedged with evergreens and in one coi ner sat a tiny club house where members kept their skates, warmed themselves and drank hot drinks. Isobel skated for a little while and then sat down on a bench near the house to rest. What was her astonish ment to see the hero come striding into the club, enter the house, put on his skates and take to the ice. She was so limp with astonishment that she sat quietly and watched him. All around her people were buzzing, "That's Mr. , the actor! Yes, it is! I saw him the other night." It watt he without doubt and he was a very good skater and almost as handsome off the stage as on. Wild with excitement, Isobel burst into school next morning and told the great news: "A-i.b you've all got to come down there this afternoon, she finished, "be cause they say:, he's., going to come often." ' There was a general rejoicing, then Jean said sadly: "Oh. but I can't skate decently and I mustn't spoil the fun for the rest of you." "Nonsense," replied Martha vigor ously, "we'll hold you up!" They were on the ice soon after luncheon but their hearts sunk when minute after minute passed and the hero did not arrive. They helped Jean around the pond several times, and she was beginning to get some- strength and courage. Then her ankles grew tired, "so she begged to sit down, while the others had a gooti swift skate. Aiay they went, around and around the pond; Joan t.ot rested soon, and quite brave. Rising lo her feet, she made a few gentle strokes. She staveu close to the railing for awhile, then, growing bolder, moved over toward the clubhouse. ' All of a sudden her feet all went ir. the wrong direction, and the next thing she knew she went plump on the ice. She started to get up, only to take another slide and another tumble. The girls were in the farthest corner of the pond and didn't see her. It was getting embarrassing. Then a kind voice behind her said: "Can I help you?" and two strong arms set her securely upright. Looking up to thank her rescuer, she gazed straight into the face of the hero. She was so confused that her feet both flipped from under her ami she would have gone down again, but that, the strong arms caught, her quickly, and this time held on until they had seated her safely on a bench. The girls came flocking quickly over to her. alive with excitement. Jean had been a heroine! The hero smiled, raired his hat and skated away, leaving the iitt'.e crowd to buzz aud enjoy the sensation. "Wasn't it kind?" "Isn't he a dear?" "Jean, think of being rescued by the hero." And Jean smiled happily. "Yes." she said, "and he was laugh ing at me nyt the time the way Uncle Francis does when I do crazy things. I suppose he thinks we're a lot of silly babies'" "Well, perhaps that's what we are," admitted .Isobel. Just Sea Xonscn.se. Said thP sinuous c-2l, with a slippery swirl.
