J 1S J ? intimate domestic tale of

jjj individuals to rise up, place a right hand on
an expanded chest, and announce what they
purpose doing the next twelve months. The
Sunday Magazine hasn't any oration to make,
but it is always glad to tell its readers, in a
plain, straightforward fashion.what it is going
to do and what it hopes to do. Its editors have been think
ing much and planning much. They would like to say they
are satisfied with the result, but they are not. What has
been decided upon is good, mightv good,?you'll be ready
to admit that,?but it is only a fair start toward making
the magazine as interesting, as valuable, as human, as they
want to make it.
Kindly people tell us we have made long strides; that we
are "getting there" with articles and stories reaching the
heart of things that concern us all in our every day life, that
help make each day brighter, more comfortable, more use
ful. And that is what we are striving for. We want to
make people feel that The Sunday Magazine is part of their
Suppose we start with telling you about the fiction. You
know from the way "The Wheel o' Fortune" starts that it
is a rattling good story about real people, a story of love and
adventure, with a whole lot of wisdom packed along in a
way that makes it most entertaining. That is one of Louis
Tracy's greatest charms. Following it, we shall publish
what is likely to prove the serial of the year.
Marion Crawford's New Story
Mr. Crawford is the most popular, most highly paid. Ameri
can novelist, and, what is more important, thi is probably
the best story that he ever wrote. Do vou know that fifty
thousand copies of every new story by F. Marion Crawford
are sold in advance of its publication in book form? That
shows how the American public regards this master story
"The Diva's Rubv," which will begin in March, is one of
the "Fair Margaret'' trilogy, the second being "The Prima
Donna." "The Diva's Ruby" is by far the strongest, most
interesting, of the three. Talk about plot! It is absolutely
absorbing in its amazing complications, which are developed
logically, clearly, compellinglv. The beautiful Anglo-Amer
ican singer, the resourceful, powerful, self made American
millionaire, the Tartar maiden whose family has a private
ruby mine, the Greek financier, the adroit and able adven
turer,?these are some of the wonderfully drawn characters.
It has delicious humor, and something is happening every
minute. You are going to have the finest kind of time reading
"The Diva's Ruby."
How to Break Into Society
"The Climbing Courvatels" is a series of short stories, each
standing alone, but closely related, by Edward W. Townsend,
whose "Chimmie Fadden" and "Major Max" fixed his repu
tation for all time. The Courvatels were vaudeville performers
of magic, with brains and ambition to get on in the world.
And they do get on! Mr. Townsend tells how, with bubbling
humor, keen insight into human nature, and clear apprecia
tion of dramatic strength, which make him one of the clev
erest of kindly social satirists. These articles, which seem
to be pure entertainment, give a brilliant and faithful picture
of contemporary life. You'll like the Courvatel lady especially,
she is so amazingly clever and good at heart, with all her
sharp turning of corners. The pair show the magic of brains.
You are bound to get a lot out of "The Climbing Cour
vatels,"?as much out of it as do the clever pair themselves
out of the campaign.
That brilliant and clever Australian with his wonderful
style, II. B. Marriott Watson, has written more "Galloping
Dick" stories for us. There isn't anybody who has wandered
back into the romantic age of English highwaymen who has
written such joyously interesting tales about them. Galloping
Dick furnishes an admirable contrast to the modern way of
relieving people of their possessions. Possibly some day
bank wrecking will seem just as romantic and as impossible
as some of Galloping Dick's feats.
'Mark Twain's Autobiography," the biggest magazine
feature of many years, will be continued, of course. It's so
big that nothing more need be said of it.
A New Jacques Futrelle Series
Those extraordinary "Thinking Machine" tales are lively
memories, aren't they? Isn't Futrelle a marvel in invention
and explanation? He has written a new series for The Sunday
Magazine,?wonderful mystery stories about a most amazing
cosmopolitan woman who has a capacity for lifting people
out of all manner of scrapes, and an insight into their inno
cence in the face of overwhelming evidence of guilt. You
can't understand it until you read the last story. This new
Futrelle series is going to grip you hard.
"Shorty McCabe" will continue to do business at the old
stand. There hasn't been a series of short stories published
in years that has made such a hit as the account of the ad
ventures of Sewell Ford's very human and humorous hero.
You've noticed, of course, that we cheer for humor when we
can,?the American humor that not only makes you laugh
but makes you think as well.
O. Henry, most popular of American writers of humorous
fiction, David Graham Phillips, Charles Belmont Davis, and
never so many other established makers of tales have written
Fortv" by Myles Tyler Frisbie which we want you to look
out for.
Adventure stories of fact that have all the merit of fiction
by Colonel J. Y. F. Blake are in type. Colonel Blake was a
real soldier of liberty, a graduate of West Point, who was
chief of scouts with General Miles in the Southwest, ami who
commanded the Irish Brigade during the Boer War.
The Helpers
In this number begins the first of a series of articles which
we think are pretty fine,?about men and women whose chief
business in life is to help others without thought of furthering
their own fortunes. That is a kind of success that isn't much
talked about, and it's about the biggest of all. Surely no
man occupies a higher position, or a stronger place in the af
fections of the millions, than Edward Everett Hale, and we
humbly believe that few finer character sketches have l>een
written than this by John Hubert Greusel. He is one of the
greatest interviewers that have ever lived. Following this ar
ticle on Dr. Hale, we shall have stories of Jacob A. Riis,?
"The must useful citizen in America," President Roosevelt
called him,?Jane Addams of Hull House, Chicago; Ben
Lindsay, the Boy Judge of Denver; and others. And when
we have told of some of the helpers of national fame, we shall
try and tell about some of the less prominent helpers who are
doing a great work. You must help us do that.
Incidentally we want to tell you there soon will be pub
lished an article by Mr. Greusel on the biggest Sunday school
in the world, that presents one of the most remarkable phases
of religious work in this country.
The Girl from Grand Detour
There is in hand a series which might be called fact fiction,
?which is really a remarkable contribution to the literature
of modern life. We think that only a woman can fully ap
preciate these articles. They tell of the experiences of a
girl who came from a sleepy little town to Chicago to work
her own way in the world,?a cheerful, happy, resource
ful girl who enters pretty nearly every walk of life, and who
sees and feels and understands, being blessed with humor as
well as insight.
Letters from a New Congressman's Wife
Here you have an illuminating view of Washington life be
hind the scenes, one of the most astonishing and most inter
esting presentations of what existence really is in the Capital.
The naive frankness of the sweet, earnest, sincere wife who is
bound up in her husband, and to whom the hollow conven
tions of official life have a poignant meaning, the contrast
between her position in Washington and in her sagebrush
home, make a real story of profound interest.
"Mental Clinics" doesn't sound exciting, but the arti
cles are about as productive of agitated gray matter as
anything you have read. \Villiam George Jordan believes
you should be able to say in the space of the moment the
bright retort you think of next day, and in articles that sizzle
with wit and humor, the most brilliant articles you can well
imagine, he gives a short course of education without your
knowing it. They will start soon.
In these days when the supernatural has the support of
learned scientific persons, it is natural that interest in this
fascinating subject should be growing wider. So H. Addington
Bruce's articles on actual, authenticated, supernatural hap
penings can be called timely, if it is necessary to tag really
live stuff. You will notice we haven't used that word
Now there's an article on "New Year's Resolutions"
coming along next week. It's by Irvin S. Cobb, late of
Paducah. Kentucky, who has discovered that " New York
is the land of the midnight souse." You have laughed over
Cobb's humor in The Sunday Magazine. This is the funniest
yet, we think. There's another on the carpet,?"A Stranger
in New York."
Covers and Illustrations
You have noticed, of course, that the covers and illustra
tions of The Sunday Magazine lately have had more life in
them, more interest. We think pretty well of the covers;
there are better ones coming. Think of this list: Albert
Sterner, J. M. Flagg, Charlotte Weber-Ditzler, F. Luis Mora,
Herbert Paus, C. Allen Gilbert, John da Costa, Alice Beach
Winter, Frances Rogers, Thure de Thulstrup.
Have you seen illustrations that appeal to you more than
those of James Montgomery Flagg for "The Wheel o' For
tune"? Joseph C. Coll will continue picturing "Galloping
Dick," and r. Vaux Wilson will do the same with Shorty
McCabe. Frederick R. Gruger will make the original drawings
for Mark Twain's Autobiography, and Reginald B. Birch, v. ho
made the Lord Fauntleroy illustrations, will picture the
"Letters from a New Congressman's Wife." J. V. McFall
will illustrate "The Climbing Courvatels."
Among the artists who will make pictures for The Sunday
Magazine during the coming year are M. L. Blumenthal,
T. K. Hanna, jr., J. X. Marchand, P. V. Ivory, Herman
Pfeiffer, Walter Everett, Charles A. Winter. W. Herbert
Dunton, Henrv Raleigh. J. L. S. Williams, C. Livingston Bull,
Tohn Sloan, Frank Tennev Johnson, Thure de Thulstrup,
Will Grefe, Arthur Heming, W. W. Denslow, B. Cory Kilvert,
and G. Patrick Nelson.
