A.l'i'ynil Seott Dttiii-wny, Editor "New Northwest," Portland, Oregon, WITH BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATIONS, AND KI.KGANTLY BOUNl new epic, from a vigorous and skillful pen, on a subject which occupies a large place In tha soelal discussions of the day. The subject Is taken from Mr. Whlttiers short narrative of "Da, vld Mstson," with which the reader Is probably familiar. David Mat son, a Merrimac sailor was captured by the Atgerines (daring one of his voyages) and sold Into slavery. Attar many- years he obtained release and was mi his way to bis old employer, who Informed him that his stunned by his trouble, be surrendered all claim as husband and lather to the man who had stepped Into his place, and departed. Mrs. Dnniway bas found a theme la this story with which her heart beats bt warmest sympathy, dleaiivaof the tallest accord. She pictures the senile, tender, trustful Anna and the wily, eov etoos I'elaliah In vivid odors; and how rears of poverty and lomring, and th cries of the hari gry 1st j' s, com pel led poor Anna to yield 10 Pelattah's Importantly, "Mse.iejoieo, My poor, an mated dove, said he, " And look henceforth for love lo me." A little further on he says: " Become my wife and yon shall be Made happy through prosperity," WbltW, If she persists In declining his advances, vation and cold. And this I'elaliah was a "deacon,' " In exhortations deep and loud." The wanderings of David, his captivity, release, hapless Interview with IVlatiah, discovery ol Anna's second wifehood, and his sad going back to Algeria, are all fold so pathetically that our leellngs ai e deeply enlisted. No one, with any tine sentiment, can read the poem without be ing thoroughly stirred. The Illustrations are In admirable keeping with the passages they are designed to portray, and a line engraving of the author Is a lltting frontispiece.'
