B v -...icr-Melllar's "BMndslon.r r !' Kutton and Company) Is the smry of a young man who needed a kmi IIRM and a Rood deal of persuasion before he could be mada eeatr of the power of the ladles to be taMlMtlnf. We are told that blind i" a i''.iMulul name for anthra cite i mil. which catches fire slowly but bums with an Intense and enduring rdor when It has been at last limited. In the particular described Richard Trevsll, the hero of this well written ami entertaining history, certainly rtStmbitd the Indurated and polished lumps Of carboniferous deposit that in Asa Packer s day were called black dlnmnndl In IVtisvllle and Mauoh Chunk. Th history of lllchsrd Is related from his childhood and through the Oddly linrf iinsr years to the strangely fur oft day when he found himself willing to he in love. It Is curious to tend of the emotions which over whelmed htm at his first foa hunt. The dogs had come upon the fox. "Right at Dick's feet like a tawny wave ltecktd with crimson and foam the pack oaught him, surged over and lie went down. A bitch yelped, and tor a moment he was flung to the surface like red log in a churning tide Then down again, and Dick, springing from his pony, flung him self headlong Into that vortex of raging, Mapping jaws, the lash of his little hunting crop falling Incessantly litiht and left." Hoys of his ate are usually for the dug! :n a matter of this kind; the little savages love to see the cruel xemse of power and are likely to cheer it on rather then try to hinder It, But not so with Dick. "As soon as he was alone he laid his head on bis pony's neck and sobbed uncon- trollal'ly. He was only 9 years old, it had been a long and tiring dny. and tad ended so differently from all hla bopeg and expectations." Mis sym pathies had boon with the fog. Very ardently had he hoped that the hunted creature would escape. Daks admirable mother was ac cidentally killed by her husbtnd. a man of violent temper, who threw a heavy candlestick at the piano to slg nify Ins wish that the music should f p the missile glanced from the . a-, anil struck Mrs. Trevitll in the face, Inflicting a moral Injury.

The author's speculations on the fourth dl. menslon. however, which he develops aa the foundation of his theory, will confuse the average reader. The Il lustrations are very good. A reader for immigrants who have to learn English hns been prepared by Charles Roads with the title "Stud ies for Immigrants'' iThe Abingdon Press. New York). The author en. deavors to combine Information aboul tne streets, for Instance, might be more helpful than acquaintance with Hocahontns. The latest wrinkles In an ever changing game are to be found in a little pamphlet, "1S1I Auction Bridge, Hecond Edition." prepared and Dub Hshed by Wynne Ferguson New i ork OTHER BOOKS. n "The Man Jesus" (Harpers) Mary Austin glees In admirable Bng- tish all the known facts about "the prophei of Nazareth." his doing! und sayings, in the light of modern his torical research nnd Biblical criticism She does tins in an absolutely rever ent spirit, but setting aside the whole theological structure that has arisen over Christianity, the traditions nnd nddltlons. examining the facts as she would those In any event Which might occur to-day. She explains the con ditions In the Jewish and the Roman worlds at the time, and follows tbe career of Jesus step by step as it ap pears In the primary evidence that Is now accepted All Other matters she excludes, not by passing over them In silence, bin by telling tlicm and ex plaining how they were added by one or the other of the KvangellstH, by Paul or by others of a much lutei day. She presents the uroiind farts In n manner I hat will aid all those who t tl i tl k for themselves and that can not offend religions people who wish to know the verdict of modern Science on christian beginnings. Next to the history of legislation the history of diplomacy is the drear lest that students have to wade through: the documents in each Spool lie. case have their Interest, but the account of the comings and goings and the subterfuges on either fide In always monotonous, Prof, carl RU8' sell Kish has written a history ol "American Diplomacy' (Henry Hull and bompahy) that will be very use ful for reference, whether it acquires favor in the class room or not. lie wastes Utile time on the period be fore Hie Revolution, and soon takes up the negotikl ins and treaties In which the United States was concerned He branches off Into the subject mutter of the treaties, the subsequent hlaturj and the rotation Id politics, so that bis book is practically a history of the 1'nited States from the point nf view of diplomacy and, in the later chaptera, a discussion of current political ques tions.

Interesting anecdotes and recollec tions of the noted Bishop of Connecti cut are contained In "Some Remi niscences of Bishop Williams," by Charles E Jackson (Stewart Printing Company, Mlddletown, Conn.). Append ed are eome let tore to friends written by the Bishop from Europe. Two ex cellent portraits adorn the pamphlet. A humorous and ingenious essay to show how a crime story ehould be constructed Is made by William Tim othy Call In "Blackmail" (W. T. Call, Brooklyn). It Involves some Intimate topography of the outlying parts of Brooklyn. The argument employed by William Parker In demonstrating "The Funda mental Rrror of Wtomsn Suffrage" (Fleming H. Bevell Company) can only be compared to those advanced by some Southern clergymen before the war against the abolition of slavery. Whatever views may be held on the advisability of granting the suffrage lo women, nobody Is likely to be convinced by statements that are not backed by proof or by dragging questions of morality Into an Issue of disputed facts.
