The story In this hook Is told by Jack Ballington himself, horn In the homo of his great-grandfather, John R?ther fonl, of the Homestretch, adjoining I Andrew. Jackson's estate In Tcnnesseo and called Homestretch, because Just here John Rutherford's horse heat An? drew Jackson's. The household In which Jack Ball inglon Is reared, is remarkable through Its personality, every member ofltcon trlhullng to the Interest Of the story. There is Geueral Rutherford; Jack's grandfather, who fought with Stone? wall Jackson In his Valley campaigns during the War Between the States, and is fond of talking nbout his sol? diering; an old mnn full of fiery Im? pulses and not always fair In his esti? mate of character, loving one grandson and disowning the other because this other, who Is no less than Jack Rnll Ington, refused a West Point cadctshlp and went to Germany to study forestry Instead. There there Is Aunt Uuorctla, Gen? eral Rutherford's daughter, who adopt? ed Jack Ballington when his parents riled, and K.lolso Ward, an orphan, brought up by her to he Jack's wife. There Is Colonel Goff, a younger son of the English Karl of Carfax, who served under General Rutherford dur? ing the Ce>nfc-derate War period, and settled near him1' at Its close. And there is Mildred Ballington, known as "Kittle Sister." who believes Iii Uncle Jnck and plays a charming part In saving tho life of a baby colt that was tiamc-d after her. and, driven by Uncle Jack, won a race ngalnst Prlncewood, General Rutherford's favorite, at a Tennessee county fair, well described in the opening chapters of the book. The period of the story Is that prior to the Spanish-American flurry, and Its swift and tragic course and end? ing. Jack Ballington came homo to Tennessee. Just as the drums wero heating and regiments leaving for Cuba or the Philippines. He bore with some equanimity Genernl Ruther? ford's lamentations over the fnct that he was not a soldier by Inclination or training. What ho did not submit to so tamely was the apparent prefer? ence of Klolse Ward for Colonel Goff, who clearly had it in mind to make her Lady Carfax. Jack spent some bitter hours nnd nenrly lost his sweetheart. But fate fought for him, and, after all, ho came- In a winner and a soldier as well. The love of the soil and of natura underlies all that thr book holds and Its romance relates to. The thrill of the clean smelling turf and the music of living hoofs bring Into inlnd the days, when such plantations as Home? stretch had race-tracks and the pad? docks for tho hors?s, the mendows for the cattle, seemed ns much a part of the. landscape as the purple lark? spur, the nodding clover blossoms, the clustering blooms of pink nzalens nnd the cream-white dogwood dowers.

From Charles Scrlbner's Sonn. 155 Fifth Avenue, Now York City, through the Bell Book and Stationery Company. ot Richmond. $1,60. From fantasies of Senhouse and Sanchla and flower planting on har? ren hillsides, Maurice Hewlett has re? turned to the medieval period and to a hero who was a drinker and a bravo among the frequenters of taverns at Pavla in the year 1102. In those remote days of merry brawls and bouts. Captain Brazcnhoad, with his crimson cloak and his fine, swaggering llgure, was a leader among the lighting menofuny company where ho chanced to bo. He hired himself to a coward and tyrant ruler, the. hunchback ruler of Milan and became one of a cut-throat band gathered nround the duke to work his cruel pleasure and execute. Captain Brazen head was a complex personality, a braggadoi cio. a man possessed with the lust of fighting and of tho power gained through lighting, yet withal n gallant lover, one who thought a throne well lost that he might play shepherd In Cremona as Datnoelus, to lint shepherdesslng of. Llporala. Perhaps tho whisper of the word "Sporza" In Captain Brnzenhead's ear, by a faithful Balboan. while all Milan crouched and fawned, may. however, have had something to do with the ab? dication which formed a dramatic pre? lude to rural retirement. Tho second book of the novel Is called "The Countess of Plcpus," and wafts Brazcnhoad to France, trans? ferring him from the service of the Viscount of Turonne and the Bishop of Agde to that of Dame Boesla lies Baux, whose castle and town he was vowed to defend on condition thnt his wife should he made mistress of robes and chief woman about the person of the countess. The last book of Brazenhead's ad? ventures Is here re-named '"The Cap? tain of Kent." It brings tho career ot Solomon Brnzenhond to an end In tho year of grace 1 477, when he met an antagonist wlioso prowess was equal to his own, who claimed to be tho rcul Count Pecpus, whore. Brazcnhoad was an Impostor. Ills historian records of the mighty captain that: "He was never honten In the tic-Id, hut now In this last struggle: never refused of I woman but In favor of himself as he had now been, none but Ills own youth, It appears, could have slain him. nor any . slain his own youth but himself." "Kenclln." By Henry litingan Stuart. Double day. Pago &. Co., of Garden City, New York. 11,20. The opening chapters of this book arc filled with a forlorn little romance lhat had Its tragic side and was enact? ed at a French watering place, where PeWlla Bnrbour and her comely, wholesome looking matron of n mother were spending a summer holiday, and Paul Ingram, tho man whom Fcnella loved, was lingering unprofltably be? side them. Fenella's mother, a plain woman, had married far above her class, a clergy? man of the Church of P.ngland. At his death soon after the birth of Iiis little daughter, bis widow found herself re? duced to the necessity of taking lodg? ers to eke out her scanty Income. She rejected advances from her husband's people that threatened to separate her from Fenelln. and proceeded to bring up that young woman as daintily and in as Impractical a manner as possible. If Fcnella cried for tho moon, tho moon she must have. So when she proposed to give herself away to Paul Ingram, gaunt waif anil starveling from Amor lean shores, crying aloud unsalable literary wares In London, Mrs. Bnrbour, Hie solf-sacrltlcing, followed out hoi usual lino, of acquiescence and helped to make Fenella happy. The story of tho book Is presumably told by J. B. Prentice, a literary F.ng llshman, who proves himself a good narrator. Ho outlines the grim thirty four years that lay ahead of the. time when Prentice mado Paul Ingrain's ac? quaintance in London. These account-! cri In some degree for the rnorosenoss and sense of failure that had eaten Into Ingrain's soul and darkened his outlook on life. , A climax was reached at the little French coast town, from which Ingram was recalled by Prentlco, a promise ot help from a compatriot of Ingrain, an American woman by birth, who had succeeded brill lanUy. where ho could find no publisher, being , tho occasion of the recall. With his going he said a good-by Intended to bo final to Fe? nella, and thereby broke that young woman's 'heart. But Tngram was too hopeless regarding his future to hold Fenella bound, and, wllly-nllly, their engagement ended. Tho man's deeper nature had ro malhod untouched, so that what tor Mim had been more or less or nn epls- , ode was somewhat quickly disposed j of. Ills acquaintance with the Amer? ican novelist, whose personality strong? ly suggests thnt of .lohn Oliver Mobbos, nnd the swift and sorrowful ending ol her careev, mark an added motive and Impulse in the forces that fought against Ingram and thrust him ever and ever deeper in hl3 downward courso. tV-nolla, In the meanwhile, having been left quite alone In the world, had cultivated her one tnlent, thnt of danc? ing, nnd become famous through her stage appearances. A millionaire. Bryan Lumsdcn, had been Instrumental in making her way easy. In the end he begged her tn marry him, nnd she might have done so hod sho been able to forget Paul Ingram. Recalled to bis bedside In nn hour of supreme need, she hesitated not a moment In her go? ing. Bryan I.umsden learned the truth then, and gave up his personal claims to set Fonclla free. The hook is written with nn extra? ordinary power of expression that lends more than usual interest to all Inci? dents nnd Invests the characters of Ihn book with a freshness and a touch of humanncss that makes them very I genuine.
