More fascinating than fiction, this true
story of a strange and unfixed life it like
no other biography the world has known.
It is as full of fun and humor and rollicking

himself, ond as diversified for this Oreat
Author nnd Philosopher was ever the play

tragedy and adventure and laughter and
failure and success in swift following
The very preparation for the writing of
the work was a romance. Six years the
author gave to the work, traveling half
way ro;tnd the world to follow in the
footsteps of his subject.
What intimate suggestion, what wise
nnd frivolous lomment, what charm of
living quality this has given to the work

Above all, this picture of n life is no
eulogy; there is no false hero worship.

of all time.
By Mary King Courtney
Virginal and dewy-fresh. all rosy with
the soft radiance of delectable youth, this
story comes tripping with laughter a
new kind, a new name. It is the fun of
love, the delicate tracery of coquetry, its
dry a story that sings itself into one's
heart- . ...
It ought to have been written in violet
ink and yet beyond its laughter and its
fun, beyond the moonlight of its tender
witchery, there glows the passionate ferl-
ing. the ardent wooing, the daring naked
and unashamed which marks the davn
of palpitant first love.
In spite of its sentiment, it is n story
first of alt for men women know so little
how men are wooed it seems unfuir even
to hint at this book's secret.
And il 1$ itUinfl Ask anyhJi.
By Will N. Harben
This new story of Southern life stirs all
the deepest emotions of the human heart.
Its bcene is in one of those Georgian vil
lages that Mr. Harben known so well and
depicts with so much charm of hctr.dy
realism. In connection with a thrilling
plot, involving the clash of violently op
posing natures, he develops a sympathetic
drama of the soul. A remarkable atory.

Here arc some intensely fascinating
reminiscences of an American woman
who was nn appreciated r.uest at the
court of Napoleon III. and n resident
of Paris for nine of the gay, brilliant
years preceding the Commune.
The reader is introduced to n crowd of
celebrities of alt ranks nnd of' every de
gree of eccentricity. Violent and pic
turesque scenes of the Commune are
urnnhicnllv reproduced, and the subsc-

Catchlnic Your Iteniter.
J. Ureckenrldge Klll, the Arkansas
writer and author of tho late "heat seller."
"Fran," has lately been rilvulglmr some
of the aeciets of his ait. In a recent arti
cle In the Japu:(nn Maker he says:
"You must first catch your leader, then
you murt hold him which Is so clearly
ImporU.nl that many authors have griev
ously erred In regarding these, processes
as the be-all aad end-all of popularity.
Feverishly desirous of catching and hold
ing, they resort to any sort of trap they
thiol: capable of securing the game, with
no other end In view than the profits such
game may realize.
"Nor Is the ordlnaiy reader very wary;
he Is rather a tame than a wild denizen
of the wood, and while somewhat boast
ful uf his strength nnd slyness, asks to
be caught, anil asks to be held, In a
word, he really desires to play Into the.
author's hand. Why Is It then that hn to1
often ranges free, while hook after hook
falls dead upon the market?
"Alas I tho author has baited his trap
with the halt that' pleases himself alone.
What boots It for the housewife to say,
'These mice are unclean: 1 will put soap
In my trap'? Mice do not want Turpose
Novel?, they ask for cheese.
"If'the i,alt Is agreeable to the public
palate then the author has a chance, to
mske a 'kllllni:.' So much for tho catch
ing; as for the holding. It will never do to
let the reader got a Way after the firit
part of the story, for he will never be
caught again. Thn suspended Inter
est In the novel should he like a suspen
sion bridge it should reach from shore to
shoie. whether It Is ot character or plot,
It should always lie over water till It
come" to a full stop.
"Itut after all. it l hut method, it Is
but the way: and If. after crossing, the
recder discovers that the object of his
hrliK-e was only to bring him to tho end
of It without carrying him any further
on Ills own lire journey, or adding nn
permanent satisfaction to that pllgt Image,

A novel of today. An impeach
ment of the attitude of many
women with regard to the sacred
ness of the marriage tie. It is a
graphic picture of a woman whose
scheme of life was all wrong, but
who is eventually set right by the tender
thoughtfulness, eager foresight and the strong
protecting love of the man she has sworn
to love and honor.
