Many great bargains offered for Saturday's quick sell "Mrs. Mmun Protests." By Anthony Hope. Schabolltz Illus? trator. Harper & Bros., of New York. $1.35 net. Anthony Hope long ago wrote his way In fiction. Into the hearts o? the Amorlcan as well as the English read? ing public. Laughter unending Is evoked at the bare recollection of the "Dolly' Dialogues," audacious and full of the sparkle of purost wit and hum? or; analytic as to characterization, comprehensive as to its situations, and extraordinary as to Its trenchant deal? ing with shams and Insincerities. The quality of "Mrs. Maxon Protests" which renders, It mo3t noticeable makes It akin to the "Dolly Dialogues" In its revolt against social amenities. Mrs. Maxon, the heroine of the story, finds herself uncongenially wedded to Cyril Maxon, a man of strongly domi? neering temperament. The wife, ac? customed to taking her own .way, de? cides to leave him because, as she ex? pressed her grievance, "She could not keep step with him. She could not live up to her husband's high, uncom? promising doctrine. Her plea was sim? ply that, be It right or be It wrong, she could not live up to It." Winnie Maxon is a complox, but not an unattractive character. In her re? lations with others, she proves a touch? stone by which the real merit, or lack of manhood and true womanhood in those around and about her, stands re? vealed. The art of the author In thu3 reversing usual conditions, Is decided? ly original, for It Is not often that an erring woman Is transformed Into a real moral force. Winnie Maxon disregards all laws of conventionality. After she separates herself from her husband, she goes for a whllo to some decidedly broad-mind? ed friends at a place called "Shaylor's Patch." These friends are not calcu? lated to set her in a straight path. Consequently she takes her future into her own misguided hands and decides to live It with a young man named Godfrey Ledstone. But Ledston, is not able to stand the test she Imposes up? on him. The persuasions of his fam? ily and the claims of his world cause him to forsako her within a few months. Her husband has refused a divorce, and consequently her difficulties begin all over again. But she has been taught a sharp lesson, and made to understand that the woman who plays the game of life as she has played It, must pay the price. Ledstone and Maxon are, she finds out. not the only men with curi? ous and Inconstant codes of behavior. By final contrast, Dick Dennehy, an Irish Journalist, who loves her deeply and truly In spite of himself, Is re? freshingly whole-souled and devoted. The book throughout. In Its char? acterization is tremendously clever ond interesting. The question of marriage and divorce is discussed from an un? derstanding and sympathetic point of view. The construction of the story Is admirable, and Its satire and humor abundant and of easy flow. The hand that penned the earlier In? imitable Hope novels has lost nothing of Its cunning, and "Mrs. Maxon Pro? tests" will rank well among the Im? portant contributions to literature of the year. Many readers will not agree with the principles it sanctions in re? gard to the marriage question, but all will agree as to its powers of enter? taining and to Its author's keen and humorous insight Into his social world. "She nulldcfh Her nouae." By Will Levington Comfort 3. B. Lipplncott Co., of Philadelphia. $lrfc5 net. The womnn who bulldcd her house in this latest book by Will Levington Comforts is called In Us pages "Paula Linstcr." She Is the embodiment of radiant womanhood, uplifted ana un? afraid, living and working out her life problem in a smell apartmont of the Zoroaster, a New "rork house, filling her days well with occupation on a big review magazine, enjoying thoroughly a few friends, many books, "lectures, plays, music and painting I with an inspiring, completing feminine Intelligence." By nature large-hearted and broad minded, Paula Linstcr is presented by her literary creator as a type that "big brained brothers of men have sung and dreamed of since human thought first lifted above the appetites." She is callod "Skylark" by one of this class of men, and as "Skylark" she rci>Slns in the mind of those who know her through her book development.

The editor In an Amorlcan Saint Beuvo to Paula Llnstor, because ho Is so quick to discern gonlus and to Toward It. Sho novcr fully understands Saint Bouvc's fooling for horsolf, how? ever, and he Is Butllclontly mastor of the situation to put his claims out of sight and rejolco over a happiness In the flowering of which he has proven an actlye potentiality. From first td lost Saint Beuvo lives up to the Ideal which Paula has formed concerning him. Into the woll-balanced purity of Paula's existence comes an alien and disturbing Influence, that of Dr. Bell Ingham, hypnotist and teacher of eso? teric women's classes, organizing Now York lecture courses In Prismatic Hall, a man whose presence sets to qutvor Ing within Paula, fears engendered from the great occult past. Opposing Belllngham's Influence Is a remarkable woman, a Madame Nestor, who has been noticed by Paula at philosophical gathering and brotherhoods. Sho comes to see the girl and warns hor: "When I saw Belllngham's eyes sottle upon you last night, It appeared to me that you are to know him well. I camo here to give you what Btrength I could, for he Is the chief of devils. He wants lifo, floods of young, flno vitality. He fears death and renews his life fron? splendid sourccB of human magnetism, such as you possess. You seo In him an empty thing, which has lived, God knows how many years, a creature who knows that to dlo means the swift disintegration of an evil prin? ciple." From this time forward there Is car? ried on between Paula and tho magi clap a conflict of will power, the oc? cultist using every effort to got the girl within his power and under his control, summoning her, pleading with her. almost breaking down her resist? ance. A name, that of a man she loves; a thought, that of a book the man has written, stand between her and Bell? lngham's machinations. She ;wrltcs to this man and he to her, of many things, among others of a Cathollo priest. Father Fontanel. of Saint Pierre, Martinique, of whom he Eays: "In all my Thinking upon the hltlmatc happi? ness of the race, ho Btands out as the bright achievement." This mention of Father Fontanel is elgniflcant In Its relation to tho story. For because of a mistaken impression made upon Paula's mind concerning the man she loved, by an actress nam? ed Sclma Foss, Paula ran away to Saint Pierre herself. She was prompt? ly followed, both by her lover and her enemy. She was In Martlnlquo at the time of the eruption of Mont Peleo, and was married there by Father Fon? tanel In the flrellcht under the Seven Palms "and the ardent mystic smile of the Empress Josephine." For her and for Quentln Charter, the mar. she married, life began afresh. Belllngham found in St. Pierre death instead of life, the daath that he fear? ed rather than life that - he loved, al? though youth lay like a barrier of de? fense against death across his knees. The book Is beautifully written and its emotional and psychological phases aro wrought out with thrilling real Ism. Paula Llnster Is the creation be? yond all others on which the writer haB centred his noblest efforts, every character and incident of the romance contributing somolhlng toward the at? mosphere. In' which her mental powers expand and full comprehension of what life means, in Its woakness as well as Its strength, is borne In upon her. There is much that is original in the conception of the book and In the way the conception Is sustained and develop? ed. The house which Is being built is the house of life, and Will Levlngton Comfort shows that woman may be the Ideal architect of the ages. "A Gentlcmnn of the Bond.'' By Hor-;co Bleackley. John Lane.

There Is a decided flavor of Stock? ton about, this story, something of Stockton's humor and not a little of the charm of his easy stylo. The re? semblance is suggested first by the plot which is exactly tho kind of mix i up Stockton delighted In, and again by the old New England farmhouso, so lovingly described, and the happy lives led thero In the later chapters by the . j.ople of the story. Perhaps, also, the author's robust Americanism of tone Is a reminder of the older writer.

Harper & Bros-, of New York, publishers. In this book the author presents a group of pre-Raphaellte artists and mid-Victorian great figures which are described. The memoirs nro Informal. Style as a separate entity disappears, and readers are brought face to race with the realities of tho story. The book contains a great wealth of anecdote about such men as Ruskln, Meredith, Whistler. Henley, Wilde and many others. Tho author's purpose seems not, however, to draw tnesu men Individually, rather to catch the physiognomy of tho group and to make of them e composite photograph. Mr. Hueffer has used for the attain? ment of hU purpose the most direct means. He has the faculty of finding the right comment, the most whimsi? cally Illustrative contrast, and to rep? resent in the fullest way tho humors of character. The whole method of his work Is impressionistic and gives vivid and Intimate Impressions or a highly Individual period of culture that, otherwise, must be dead and gone to the world at large.

While primarily a story of Incident nnd exciting plot, "The Sovereign Pow? er" Is also the 3tudy of an uncommon character battling against great odds. From Rhelmo the tale shifts rapidly to Paris, to Lake Como, thonce to tho French capital, and from thero by way of Pau, the Rlvlora and Venice, to Dal matla and tho Montenegrin frontier.
