From Charles Scrlbnor'a Sons, lSS-ir,; Fifth Avenue. .New York City, through the Bell Book arid Stationery Company, of Richmond. ?1,35 net. The author of a ploy, "Justice," which has aroused the most favorable comment, has written a rather re? markable novel as his latest contri? bution to literature. In It lie has taken an aristocratic English ramlly, the Caradors, of Monk land Court, to exemplify bis purpose and meaning. " 'Character is Kate.' quotes John Galsworthy. He says further. as he sees the truth, that "all are in bond to their own natures, and what hu? manity has most desired shall in the end enslave " Of the Caradoc family there is Just one who is not In thrall, just ono who is always consistently natural and ir? resistibly amusing. She Is little Ann Shropton. a granddaughter of Lord and Lady Valleys, and n child of Sir William Shropton by his marriage with Lady Agatha, the eldest daughter of the Caradocs. Ann is pictured as having "a broad little face and wide, frank hazel eyes over a straight and sudden nose." All that she says and dove, and that is a good deal, matches very or.actly the description of her quaint? ly humorous personality. The most forceful type In the book Is "The Patrician." Lady Castcrley, the mother of Lady Valleys, respected by her son-in-law as a principle, "ar? mored by the tradition of a culture demanded by leadership; inspired by ideas, but always the same Ideas, and possessed of a mind w hlch had ever distinctly rejected that inner knowl? edge of herself, or of the selves of others, produced by foolish practices of introspection and understanding, so deleterious to authority." To com? prehend her entirely it Is necessary to read the eleventh chaptor of the book, In which her indignation at being chased at an unusual pace by a Cara? doc bull when she was taking a walk across a field, reveals her In a most characteristic attitude. Lady Castorley's grandson, Mlltoun. became attached to a woman whom his grandmother considered undesir? able. To the old lady the solution of the matter was a simple affair. She said: "It is out of the question for a man of Miltoun's prospects I look for? ward to seeing him Prime Minister some day." And to Miltoun himself: "Don't be? tray us. moaning and moping because you cannot have the moon. Put on your armor and go down into the bat? tle. Don't play the coward, boy." And Mlltoun obeyed her. He made stub? born revolt, but his world was too strong for him and his ambition. They meant more to him than love, and so he flung love aside, as Granny Castcr? ley had ?uessed he would, and went on bis way alone. His sister. Barbara, was cast In a different mold, higher spirited arid possessed of greater determination to break through the trammels Which bound her. But she waited too long and lost her opportunity- Then con? ventionality caught her also in the re? bound and she yielded. The story Is intensely clover, full throughout of satire, but satire that is so unmli-glol with bitterness and eo obviously correct In its estimates that the'pity of it all wrings the heart. Like Barbara, the reader feels "the immortal call that passed on the wind in which all the beauty and color nnd rapture of life seemed to bo Hying by." leaving behind only the sense of chains, walls and finality. "Deinoter's Daughter." By Eden Phiilpois. John Lane Co.. of New York. 51.50. The woman who is the centre of thought and meaning in tills new Dartmoor book of Mr. Phillpots. is created by hlrn to symbolize Demeter, and of Demeter, as he conceives her, he writes: "Hor name is 'gift.' From her we won'the poppy and all that the poppy means; hers also were the mandril gora and the grape. Boforc Diohslus was Dem Her, and the gods of the hill and dale, of the earth and the river, are younger than she. Yet her joy . Is for over shadowed by sadness, since without darkness there can ho no light, and without death, no living. She is a mother and hss suffered the agony of loss. Sho hours Persephone's despairing cry in tho voices of un? happy children. She slill comes dis? traught among men to utter her wrongs and revenge herself upon the earth." The daughter of Demeter about whom Mr. Phillpots busies himself lias the namo of Alison Cleave, not. Torse phone- She is a Dartmoor woman of forty-three years, on the bright pale? ness of whoso face the history1 of a constant struggle against the harshest of life's problems is written. When she was a youthful lass, she discarded more than one promising- suitor, to run away and marry Aaron Cleave, a shiftless, inefficient fellow who took advantage of his slight lameness to put oil all the burdens he should have carried on lier tired shoulders. Alison's homo, was a forsaken shack on Dartmoor, far removed from other human habitations, a miserable place that offended every Instinct of Alison's orderly and dcccnt-loving soul. She was a woman who craved the. prcttl nesscs of Ufo in her surroundings, a garden with flowers and fruit trees, and correct neatness In house furnish? ings. She had been straining toward an impossible standard only to find herself sinking lower and lower, In? stead of ascending In the scale. Her children, with the exception of the youngest and a son who loft her to be killed in the Boor War, were their father's by nature, and had for hor no love nor comprehension. Against all tho disappointments which came to her she struggled, on valiantly. ?Wihlle lier husband was euch a broken reed, sho had always had, sho belioved, his loyalty. The tlmo came when even that solf-docep tion was taken from her, when sho know that every sacrifice she had made and all tho work sho had done count? ed for nothing, her husband finding his relaxation and amusement else whero than In her presence, and trans? ferring his easy affections to another object.. she fought against the numbing pres? sure of adversity that was stilting her.

La Marmora, Is a principal character. and her voung daughter, a perfect foil for the cruel, jealous, unscrupulous nature of the mother, is the other. The singer Is represented to be an Australian by birth, a woman who all through her life looks to nothing hut the gratification of her own desires Mid interests, who indulges Trer un brldled whims to the utmost, and goes into rages and screaming lits when- ' eve,- snc is thwarted In the slightest) degree. Her foiipe motions and Ih-i Millets e;,usf. per to b< called "The I Patither." she bfelng as beautiful, graceful and as treacherous as her I prototype. Needless to say that such j a woman I', cops her charming young daughter at boarding school, because I she alternates constantly between Ills' of fury and spasms of maternal love, ?'li relation 10 the rival attractions of the girl mid her very real fiweetiu-ss and gentleness of disposition. The only person who can dominate the singer Is her repetltor. a German, who surrenders his post as leading \iolinlst In an orchestra to train her and restrain hoc .it the tarnest en? treaty of her manager, Baron de Hobeeq. who lias oisi'ovcrcd and rend? ered available to .the European world her wonderful voice. j La Marmorn Is practtciug to appear In the role of Salome when the novel opens. She is restless and ready to do and say foolish things, because Krilz Is taking a cure for gout at some German springs! Against Robccci's saner judgment the slr.gor Insists on having her daughter to keep her com? pany. The girl arrives and begins almost at once to be known among La Mar? mora's circle as "Panther's Cub." Tho mother designs to marry the daugh? ter to rtobecq. her manager. Instead, on Englishman, Lord Desmond, tho object of a wild fancy on the part of the opera singer, falls very genuinely in lovo with the daughter, runs away with her. marries her and bo saves her from future misfortune and unhappl ncss. The book is cleverly conceived and written. Its special merit lying In the L-haracteriznilon of its different per? sonages. Outside of the principles In the romance, types that prove specially entertaining arc Philip Scott, a Jour? nalist by occupation; Sir Joseph \Var ren-Smlth. Lord Desmond's brothcr-ln law. and other members of his family. The attitude of the Desmond connec? tions toward Its heir and his future Is descrNjed with unusual acumen and much sly humor. The little American girl, who Is Lord Desmond's sister in-law. Is the one redeeming figure In the family, the sole, one actuated by normal affections and Impulses. As the work of two literary artists well known through previously pub? lished books, the Interest or the booV and the merit of Its style are unques? tioned, i ?'Bnr-:n Hays." By Clarence E. Mulforrt.
