This second volume is downed te a collation of many Instances of such apparitions nt the moment of death.

He cites instances of appari tions opening doers nnd sitting in chnlrs nnd of nppnritlen manifesting them selves in fulfillment of premises.

Humanity has need of thr infinite, with its corollary of In vincible Ignorance, If It is net te feel itself ti dupe nnd a victim of an un forgivable experiment or n blunder Im possible of evasion." He says fur them: "Let us search for only what Is there: thnt Is. the certainty that all things are fied, that all things plst In Him and should end in happiness nnd that the only divinity which we can hope te understand Is te be found In the depths of our own souls."

The book is permeated with the mor mer bidness thnt seems te he the nnturnl result of the blenk, gray bareness of Sweden. Hut "The Outcast" shows the author's power of charaelcrb.ntlen, her fidelity te detail nnd her Insistence en nn underlying message, such ns has mnrked nil her lnttcr writings. "The Outcnst" Is the son of Swedish peasants, simple In their ways, strong in their likes and dislikes nnd strangely religious In that moedv tenseness that mere thnn borders nn fanaticism. The boy. adopted by nn English family, gees away en nn exploring expedition. On Its return rumor hns it the survivors weie forced te cannibalism. Imme diately the finger of scorn is pointed nnd se enters "The Outcnst." Suffering the severest pang of all ostracism by his fellows the young ex plorer becomes another "Servant In the HnuhP" or nnether ledger of "The Third Foer Rack." But every attempt at doing geed for his fellows brings but new rebuffs. He lifts n crowd of law less, shiftless fishermen into new paths nnd Is enst out bv the scorn of their wives. He builds n school for the neg lected children of the little storm-swept town, nnd it is burned down by the fanatically inclined. Even the minister turns against him. Strangely enough It Is the wife of the minister, h young, beautiful and yet abused girl, who sup plies the thread of romance. Hew the "Outcast" necct)t8 his fate and llnnllv lives te see his exoneration, only te pass nway, uring out some of the strongest scenes Selma Lagerlef has written. Her plea for the brotherhood of man rather thnn the kinship of death is worked out logically If morbidly. Rut elwnys it is done by a master pen.

ROBERT KEABLE was a missionary previous te the war, in the darkest part of Africa. He was sent te France as Chaplain te a regiment of African natives. His book "Stand ing By" is one of the most notable interpretations of the religious phases of the war in print. He saw that a contented, backbeneless, conventional religion, which had permitted war, offered no armor against the flood of passion let loose by war. It is this which made his novel necessary; a story of love, poignantly beautiful, strong, sincere, and never trivial, a book worth reading, worth pondering ever, SIMON $2.00 at any bookstore.
