Stokes Company, New York. ’ A year or more ago everybody was talking about the author of "To M. L. . 1." and today everybody is talking about he same author again, who gives us an ther novel entitled, "The Life Mask.” , The author inscribes the latter book "To i the friendly ones woh helpdd find M. L. ill./-" and in a very cleverly wrought story shows skill ami power id an entirely dlf f''"erit direction from the former offer i:i>e story is simply told or a young miaii wlio Starts out with a terrible •igedy enveloping her. What it Is, is kept 1 crret until the book's close. The woman fears facing life, and is : .king a haven of rest soiviowliere, some 11 iv, away from the madding crowd, and MAURICE LEBLANC Author of “The Crystal Stopper” she and her companion, Sarah, finally find it near the Alhambra, where nature s balm and beauty arc healing, and grad ually our heroine gets over the sadness and depression that have so long en thralled her. Sarah, Hie nurse, plays a conspicuous part Ir. the unraveling of the story, and her unexpected revelations regarding ner self make an interesting chapter in the denouement of a very interesting story. "The Life Mask” is well written and cleverly conceived, and Is destined to make the author of "To M. I.. G.” more popular than ever. "NEW LEAF MILL.S." By William Dean Howe. Is. Harper Brothers, New York. It is a delight to pick up a hook Jrom a veteran author, who has lost none of ills ideals, his convictions, or his keen souse of humor. Such is the case with "New Year Leafs," from the pen of that delight Tul writer, Mr. William Doan Howells, " lias been regarded by many as the “pioneer" realist, although his realism is the realism of life in its teal phase and not the perverted and abnormulized phase that so many other writers have called “realism." However, as Owen Powell says in Howell’s latest book, "all things are but opinions." "New Leaf Mills" tells the stony of the Powell family and Owen Powell is a most interesting 'character. He is a .Swedenborgian, a dreamer and an egoist. Mis buying of the "Mills," the efforts of his family, their homely life and companionship form a fertile back ground for the master hand of Mr. Howells to weave a most delight! ul story, which he does quite successfully. "THK CHKQCKK BOA HD." By Sybil Grant. George H. Doran Co., New York. In "The Chequer hoard." by Sybil Grant, the readers interest is grea'ly aroused, since the*e : lories are written by the daughter of me Karl of Rosebeny. It does not take one long to discern that the*stories are lar beyond the ordi nary—they are unusual both in matter and style. They possess the cosmopolitan touch; the types of character they describe are as varied is tlie countries which afford their setting. Life’s chequer board is the subject— the haphazard defeats and conquests, moves and counter moves of diverse des tinies. The stories are told with restrained and powerful imagination* the language ot their telling has tlie fine texture of dis tinction. "THE APPLK OF DISCORD." By Henry C. Rowland. Dodd. Mead & Co. New York. "Some years ago J lost all my dislikes, and I have never advertised for them.’’ So writes Henry ('. Rowland, author, surgeon, traveler. Ard although he has named Ids latest book "The Apple of Dis cord." still it is a novel that well Illus trates this happy quality of temperament. Dr. Rowland has had a varied career 1 Just after graduating from the Yale med ical school he entered the army and I served as surgeon through the Spanlsh American -war. and later in the Philip pines and in China. After two years’ p-aetice in New York citv he pave up medicine for travel and study and since then has been in all parts of the globe and is now known as one of the most popular writers for the j big popular magazines. Dr. Row land has j some excellent advice for new authors: “One owes it to the public to furnish something as fresh as one can. and not «*erve out a literary ration composed of, the ‘rehash’ of other minds. Personally, 1 am constantly confronted with my lack of knowledge and broader education and constantly trying to remedy it. 1 wil' cot lay a scene Iri any place of which f have not a first-hand knowledge.

A CARD GAME* ALSO KNOWN ’ AS “RUM." By R. F. Foster. Frederick A. Stokes & Co., New York. "Cooncan, a corruption of “eonciuian," the Spanish name for the same game, is the largest rage in London and New \ ork. as well as in many other parts of the United States. The Brooks, the Sav age and other famous London clubs have been obliged to open cooncan rooms. 'Rum is also a widely used name for the game, but it was decided that "coon MR. WINSTON CHURCHILL nan' would be the surviving term, as it Is easier of explanation. The game has two great advantages First, it run lie played by two, three, tour or more players; second, it is easllv learned and comparatively simple, vet it offers great opportunities for skill. ' This book contains the complete laws and directions for play by the great card authority, R. F. Foster. "VANISHING POINTS" By Alice Brown. The Macmillan t o., New York. As a writer of delicately turned sliort stories, fine in execution. Alice Brown has few equals. She is best known, per hapg. for her New England tales and there ar« a number in the present col lection, "Vanishing Points," which rep sent tlie true and ever pleasing at mosphere of that part of this country. Tlte book is not, however, composed solely of this kind of fiction. Not a few of the most interesting of tho stories make their appeal because they rest on feelings, belief and character istics that are universal in human na ture. One feels, as one reads of the man who thought that as so many peo ple in this broad land must suffer from poverty and cold and hunger, be, too, should share their lot, or of the writer who, though his success did not ap pear to be great was. nevertheless, in fluencing the work of others, or of the editor who took a stand against the unfair policy of his magazine, or of the mother who saved her son from the wiles of an adventuress, or of any in fact, of Miss Brown’s delightful characters, that the art of short fic tion is at last coming into its own. "THE CAKE Ell OF DOCTOR WEA VER." By Mrs. Henry Bachus. illustrated. L*. C. Page & Co.. Boston. A big and purposeful story inter woven about the responsibilities and ! problems in the medical profession of ; the present day. is Mrs. Henry Radius’ | clever story. "The Career of DoeJor Weaver." Dr. Weaver, a noted spe cialist, ami head of a private hospital, had allowed himself to drift away from tho standards of Ills youth in liis de sire for wealth and social and scientific prestige. When an expose of (lie meth ods employed by him in furthering his schemes for tho glorifying of the name of "Weaver” in tho medical world is threatened it is frustrated through the efforts of the famous doctor's younger brother, Dr. Jim. Tho story is power ful and compelling, even if it uncovers the problems and temptations of a physician's career. Perhaps the most important character, not oven except ing Dr. Weaver and Dr. Jim, is "Tho Girl,” who plays such an important part in the lives of both men. “ONE WOMAN'S LIFE.” i By Robert Herrick. The Macmillan company, New York. When the reader meets Milly Ridge, the .heroine of Robert Herrick’s “One Wom an's Life." she is a strong-willed girl in her early teens who is rebellious at the middle-class home in an unfashion able section of Chicago which her father has leased. In those first few scenes of tiie novel there is clearly revealed the principles, as yet not wholly formed, which in time become the guiding forces of Milly’s life. That she will not remain all her days cooped up in a house that is barely habitable, that she will meet people and be in touch with and a part of the really worth while society of the big city, tiiat she will do things, in short, be somebody, are among the points on which she has quite made up her mind. It is the old story of the struggle to cut a dash, to live up to appearances and to make those appearances very much larger than the poeketbook justifies, that. Mr. Herrick tells. And Milly succeeds In a way. too. She does get an entry into what she thinks is the best society, in the course of a few years, and she soon becomes the feted of a particular group of rich people. Of course, all this time Milly had had her eyes open for a mar riageable man and the result of her many social maneuvers Is a proposal from a wealthy, if somewhat brainless, gentle man. t Right here Mr. Herrick snows his skill not only as a novelist, but as an inter preter of feminine character. “One Woman’s Life" is not a story of do mestic difficulties resulting from a union i with money as its only bond, for Milly ultimately rejects her suitor with the millions for a dashing newspaper artist with ability but no cash. And the rest of the book following Milly's mariiage to Jack Brandon take; an entirely differ-1 ent trend from most of the fiction which has hitherto portrayed nn ambitious woman Mr. Herrick has not written extravagant!', but rather in such a way, that the experiences of his heroine might I almost be the experiences of any woman. [ Milly’s married life is not wholly a happy [ one, but its “ups and downs'’ as narrat ed by the author ring distinctly true. This quality of naturalness, this almost amazing analyzing of an ordinary type of woman, is one reason for the hold which the story undoubtedly possesses. All the novels of Robert Herrick have been forces to reckon with—they have stirred the waters of life to their deepest depth, probed relentlessly into the in nermost recesses of the human soul and have shown in the broad glare of day whatever of rank growth existed there. They have been novels to set the reader thinking about the real issues of life, to plunge him into the deeper currents instead of leaving him to disport himself upon tlie sunlit surfaces. They have been books that demanded some experience of life and willingness to face the truth in certain phases of our modern society. Keen critics of American letters have watched with interest the work of Mr. Herrick—seen how with each successive book he has broadened his held of vls ! ion as his knowledge of life widened. They have watched the growing power i of his word in “The Common Lot,.I'o • gether..Phe Healer.'' and have real | ized in him a great novelist. With the ; publication of “One Woman's Life" they | will acclaim him, out of the perfection i of this book, as the greatest American author of many who draw upon the eur I rents of our feverish modern life for ! their material. “IN THE VANGUARD.’’ ! “A PLAY IN THREE ACTS.’’ By Ka trina Trask. The Macmillan company. New York. “In the Vanguard,” by Katrina Trask. Is tiie most dramatic appeal for universal peace that has appeared for some time. It Is not only this bigness of theme, but the sparkling dialogue and clever handling of dramatic* situations, as well, that lifts Hip play out of the usual con fines of contemporary drama. Mrs. Trask's play has to do with a man and a woman and the theme with its intensely dramatic qualities Is evolved from the conflict that takes place be tween the man's realization of the tru* value of war and the demands of the wmum he loves. The solution of this situation is worked out through scenes of delicate sentiment and deep feeling and that which begins as a glorification of war ends in a most eloquent ami stirring plea Tor peace.
