"A Uotmler < brontcle." By Meredith Nicholson. Houghton, Mlfflln and Company Of Boston. Mass. ?1.40.. Perhaps as much as any write.' of the present day Meredith Nicholson ex? emplifies th< :??-??? in which he lives, the environment In which ho has re? ceived his inspiration, the country of Arnerica, ills native land. "A lloosler t'hronh le" deal> wltli social and political conditions'and peo? ple who help to make them in In dia.na and In Indianapolis. Their chrqriicier has not scrupled to write plainly slid to disCard the voll of mys? tery formerl> employed to disguise localities and people In ftctloii. Mr. Nicholson deal- with realities sincere? ly and honestly and is not averse loj giving truthful impressions o! what he his seen and Known of personalitiesI and problems in hi* State and e.lty. Sir. Nlchtdsoh lias hud a varied ex-| perlctico <in' the practical side of e\-j Istenct, having been In earlier life by turns i telegrapher, a druggist* a stenographer, a student of law, a ! journnltst and an othcer m a large mining corporation. Now he is living! in Indianapolis and writing out the experiences he has gathered in for the [American public to read. His present story extends from thei juried of the nineties down to tliej pi/econt. II? has chosen a number of] characters to Carry ?'ti tin thread of) ins narrative ami he.s set up a blgi hook canvas tor h:s moving picture fchow in fiction. Passing and ropusslngl are the figures of Sylvt ., the heroine, who meets bravely and well the great' cilses in her life: the Yale graduate; v ho develops satisfactorily In ivicj world oi iicwspupcrdom and the pro-1 fesalona of law and politics: n woman.! wlto. In spite of advancing years, can] p.dni to her achievements as a stock faimci and n political boss. These lire, all more or less nearly related to] each other by ties of Interest and as-1 to elation and are contrasted with other iniportuut and almost etiunlly elgnl-l fte.tnt. types. Mr. Nicholson has done] hi; book work fror, r.uch a positive; and convinced standpoint of knowledge i ami devotion to his State, that he lias most admirably Interpreted the ideals j and faiths of that c-rpeCinl part of the. Mhldb West in which be hn? his home. As a man of the people he writes to] ttie people. In this fact lies Mi. Nicholsons es? sential charm and power, lie bus been] in the midst of what he describes, lie IS no dilettante, no otltstdi and super-) iieitij onlooker, lie lias said that "the j life that surges around me, whose] sounds rise from the asphalt below, the hurrying leet on the tiles In my own corridor of a steel-boned tower, the faint tinkle of t dephones, the click of elevator doors?these things and the things they stand for speak ".Ith dee,i and thrilling eloquence, and he who would best serve the lltjrature oi his! time and country will not ignore them.'" 1 He tias fully carried out in "A I loo* ] ?-ler Chronicle" this vision of modorn'ty i which he sees so clearly In Its beauty i und its uplift, as well as its sordldnesa | and gr;ed; In its idealism, as well us] Its disillusionment: In Its optimism,] above nn'l beyond its pessimism. Mr. Nicholson has not hesitated to j emphasize In his book the Increasingly ? ? important part played in publli affairs \ by tile intelligent American women of the twentieth century, In Ins chroni? cler's postscript picture, where bis pe, . pie are grouped for a public bearing by a Semite committee on child labor, he thus portrays one of his favorite characters. Marian Bass tt. now Mis. Allen Thatcher. lie writes: "Having known Marian for a long lime, it was almost too much 'or my composure to behold her there, beyond question ijjo bist-dressed woman in tin- Senate chamber, with a single American Bc'aufj thvust into hr r ,-oat and a bewildering / rose-trlniuicd hat crowning her fair' heBd.
