Bride Is worth While; The delights of that book are of the ort to create a longing for more pleasure of.tbe same variety. x And bo P. Frankfort Moore's "Ivell Gwyn Comedian," has an advantage In bearing the .name of Its kindly author. Perhaps there" Is an .element of timeliness In the produc tion of the novel, for the Nell Gwyn craze.lt .It may be so' termed, has prepared the pub lic for Just such a happy effect as Mr. Moore has produced. And standing In Juxtaposi tion with the many other Nell Gwyn "things"-' that have appeared of late., the novel bears comparison with some .eclat deserved praise. Bo many tales have come down to us of the frolicsome orange girl that the truth regarding her rage In London has given present-day writers plenty of scope for a tree Imagination. Even frank Mr. Pepys, lie who hid nothing from his diary, has ln- vested her with a sort of glamour that has made her rollicky ways a Joy to readers. Of facts there are few enough, yet we know that she had the smallest foot In Bngliud and could laugh until her eyes closed In .pure enjoyment. She loved the soldiers perhaps. too many. She was klna to her old associ ates, the. orange venders. She could mimic anybody or anything, and this, together with her beauty.. made her easily the first In the ' affections of Charles 1I. Around these facts Mr. Moore.-has con structed' a novel of a peculiar kind. Begin ning with the, "comedy outside the play house," he details Nell Gwyn and her. hum ble surroundings. He" presents the first time that her humble charms caught the eye of the Merry- Monarch. He Introduces Lady Castlemalne afterwards Duchess of Cleve- land who was to become the rival of the low-born Nell Gwyn. He shows us tbeproud and haughty Duke of Buckingham. Then, after the Introductions have all been made In front of the King's playhouse, the career of .the happy-go-lucky girl Is begun In earnest by Charles ordering her to beplacod In the company of actors. From that tlmo on the star of the witty actress is In. the ascendency. With plenty of action, of quick repartee, of Insight into the' life of the gay court that succeeded Cromwell's rigor, the figure of Nell Is kept before the reader gentle reader, should It not be? In a way to arouse a, love for the girl who .has won her way single-handed Into' the midst of-events. Nell is inado out to be almost a phllan-. throplst and conservator of the morals of her friends. When two of the pretty girls of the court, wishing to surprise even that festive circle, decided to sell .oranges" In the playhouse, Nell, for the sake -of handsome Jack Churchill; he who afterwards made his mark in England's behalf, warned the girls that they were found out. And be cause .of the warning Miss Price kept away. In her stead Nell, arrayed as In former days, hawked her oranges In the pit of the old theater. litdy Castlemalne, rival, of Miss Price. In common with Jack Churchill, bellevedthe girl to be none other than Miss -Price; Then, when the ruffians of the Lady Castlemalne Attempted to kidnap the'pretty orange girl. Jack Churchill appeared, killed a half dozen or so and'earried offthe girl In bis carriage. Of course, he proposed. Not until next day did he learn that his accepted bride was Nell Gwyn. And as .Nell grew In grace she grew In power and daring. Her happy faculty seemed to be in getting people out of trouble. True, she made enough' trouble for the best of the courtiers, but what more could be expected of;madcap. Nell? She was the privileged in .that, mad throng. Perhaps her Interference, in the heart affairs of the girls was not welcomed. .but In the end her kindness and foresightedness called down blessings from the. lovers. Not the least of her fforts was her Im personation of a lover. When Lord Roch ester, .he who wrote the apt stanza regard ing Charles II. appeared as. the suitor of a "simple country maiden.'' Miss Mullet, his path was not strewn with roses. An up country fellow appeared who played and sang, beautifully and who mimicked all the people of the" court. Poor Rochester 'was ."By the Waters of Babylon." Mrs. Regi nald De Koven's successful new novel, will freshen again the overambltious literary fcyurL" "By the Waters of Babylon" tells a story of human' passion, and In tho telling the subtle authoress runs the gamut of love; pate, revenge and desire.

After hours of impatient -waiting the poor Lord came closer to Die house of Nell, where he heard shouts, of laughter, the King's and Nell's. And behold, the up country lover and Nell were one and the same. Thus go some of the chapters of the book. Mr. Moore has caught the spirit of the time, softened It and made the refining a hit of pure literature 'that cannot help but appeal' to lovers of madcap fun. He has dealt kindly with the Merry Monarch. He has dealt lovingly with Nell, or Madam Nell, as she became in later days. There is no plot to the novel. It' la simply a col lection of loosely woven incidents that seem all the more attractive" because the pretty and vivacious actress is' left-In" the heyday of her power. Perhaps Mr. Moore aimed at nothing but an artistic piece of 'work.. Certain It Is that he has accomplished, that, and thereby. Is the power of the boot He has given us a passing show of -characters we have all heard about and whom we' would feign know better. r ("Nell Gwyn Comedian,'! by R. Frank fort Moore. Published by Brentano.) OTHER HEW BOOKS. Mr. Frederick Palmer's "The Ways of the Service." published by Charles Scrlb ner's Sons, New York, is a collection of short stories of American army and navy life in the Philippines, which are full of snap, and vim. The' author knows what ho Is writing about and is in keen touch with the spirit animating American soldiers and sailors on foreign service. It is impos sible to read his tales and not feel proud of the fellows whose deeds he relates, the brave young "Americanos" whose faithful ways were' "the ways of the service" they .loved, whether it' was, that, of land or sea. One' of the best of the short stories is that which opens, the book, .'Ballard,"- the hero of which is a gallant-young Ensign of the navy, in command 'of a little gunboat of the American mosquito fleet, on the Philip pine coast. But all the stories are thor oughly good; vital and fulljof action, and giving delightful evidence of. the writer's sympathy with the things" of which he writes. And when you have read them, somehow you know more about the way American lads are fighting 'and laughing and living In the Far East than comes to jou from all the official reports ever pub lished, so enlightening Is good fiction. It is not strange that "Tne Ways of the .Ser vice" is making a big .bit In the reading world. . It is good story-telling, and hot from the scene of the stories. As the third number of their, series of American novels the Harpers have Just Is sued . "Martin Brook," by. Morgan Bates, which Is a story of American life before and during the. Civil War. Its hero is a -young and earnest fellow, the adopted son of a proud old Virginian-New Yorker, who es pouses the cause of the slaves and Is dis owned by. his foster father. He becomes a Methodist preacher and has stirring expe riences as an Abolitionist! There is a pretty love story, and the hero dies at the close of a dramatic sermon preached on the eve of the beginning of reconstruction times.. The author seems familiar with the people and the atmosphere, of his story, and the tale is told, earnestly and dramatically. "Under Tops'ls and Tents" Is the-title of Reverend Cyrus .Tbwnaend Brady's latest book, now out under the Scrlbners Imprint. The volume contains the writer's personal recollections of life as a naval .cadet at Annapolis, of the ensuing. sea service, and .of his experience as an army chaplain at the time of the war with' Spain, when he volunteered and served with the First Penn sylvania Volunteers.

The lawn should not bo interfered with until the grass is at least two inches' high, when it may be gently rolled and swept. When the grass has again grown two Inches after" rolling, clip the tops of. the blades and. pull out weeds and remove stones and bits of stick.. .Of course, all weeds must be eradicated and an old knife Is the best with, which' to spud them out, while. If the lawn Is poor, dress It with equal parts of vegetable refuse, manure and loam, well, sifted, and sow bare places with seed. Japanese quince is 'as pretty a ehrub as one could wish".

He has entitled the book, "Mistress Nell: A Merry Tale of a Merry Time" (Charles Scribner's Sons). There Is' little In the book that is not In the play, although Mr. Hazleton has evidently dolved Into history In order to portray the historic person ages with 'some degree of faithfulness. As In the play, there Is plenty of movement of the pleasantly enlivening sort that makes excellent reading. The binding of tho production Is beautiful. An entrancing portrait of Nell Gwyn from an engraving of the painting by Sir Peter Lely is the frontispiece Especially notable, owing to Its strong local Interest. Is Mr. W. R. Llghton's little history of the Lewis and Clark Expedi tion, now Jutt issued by Houghton, Mifflin & Co. In this modest volume there Is a keen treatment of the characters of the two great American pioneers, and the story of their splendid achievement in exploring the vast empire gained' by President Jefferson's purchase of the Louisiana Territory from the-first Napoleon Is well and Interestingly told. Not the least Interesting part Is that which describes the return of the fearless little band and their reception and enter tainment in St. Louis. This is taken from the Journal of Captain William Clark, whose direct descendants are still living in St. Louis, and. In part, reads as follows: "September 23. (180(3.) Took an early breakfast with Colonel Hunt" (command ing a cantonment' of United Stcs soldiery three miles above the mouth of the Mis souri), "and set out, descended to the Mississippi and down that river to St Louis, a't which place we arrived about 12 o'clock. Wo suffered the party to fire off their pieces as a salute to the town. We "were met by nil the village and received a hearty welcome from its inhabitants, etc Here I found my old acquaintance.
