'?The Slewing of Molly." By Maria Thompson Daviess. The Bobbs-Merrlll Co., of Indianapolis. Vhd. Ii.on not. Not that Molly needed any special met tins. Ono of her most appropriate tltlca was "Mrs. reaches." bringing up I o Idea of n p.ach that melts In the mouth! Molly was a widow, 1 loa von save the mark! she said, in telling her own Story, that "there Is nothing so dead ?i ".'iing widows dcccfascd bus i and. and Ood ought to give ills wis? est man-angel special charge concern ing looking -ifter her:" Molly would have furnished the man-' angel diligent .occupation certainly, for every opportunity around her con? spired to enable her to take a hand In the mischief Kite was more than ready to do. She was the essentially femi? nine. Inconsequent kind of >\ person, i ivishlngly pretty and altogether Ir? responsible, that the world, especial? ly tho masculine world, adored and i xcuscd. All the more so. because Molly had a comfortable home of her own andl seemed to have been comfortably pro? vided for by the deceased husband, who was quite dead Indeed lo her in every way. All the more so. because a| plenty of aspirants for Molly's favor cropped up continually and were nev? er entirely snubbed by this contradic? tory bit ?f femininity, who liked ad? miration so much that she felt bound to accept it whenever offered. All the mure so. because Molly had pretty fripperies and laces and rib? bons and wore them daintily a.pd be? comingly. All the more so. because she was fond of little children nnd never failed to have a kiss nnd an em I r t.-e f >r little Billy Moore, the "in? fant terrible" of the book. All the more so. because when her , yj ?- wi re opened and she found out tin mat) she really loved. Molly was I oncst and sincere and not afraid to .say so. Vppnrently It was always Stimmer In lllllsboro, and n Southern .summer at Its best. There was no poverty, no scandal, except the most friendly in? terest, no ?Irls that were not beauti? ful, no men that were not charming. The neighbors were of the kindest? and then, there was Molly. The (inly crumpled rose leaf was that, In the past. Molly had been mar? ried to Mr. Carter, an elderly anil pompous person, who was how happily .bad. leaving her his large fortune and in the present, that Molly tended to plumpness. The title of the book has a two-fold meaning, for Molly expect? ed tlx return of a former lover who had distinguished himself in diplo? macy, and underwent a course of diet? ing and physical training to reduce 1,, r too solid llesh. that her erstwhile sweetheart might Und her able t<> wear the blue and muslin frock, with itsj twenty-inch waist, that she was wear? ing when he went away. Despite the joy. the gaiety, the ef? fervescence of the story, there are many reflections on mankind, on wo? men's hearts, on life in general, that are good reading. The story runs along so smoothly, with so much sparkle und spontaneity, that it Is as , sing ?V -'I la HS?. .Tune and roses and the buok will go together. mtIic <.diy Fellowship." Ry Rachel C. Schn?ffler. The Mac millnn Co.. of New York. $1.25 net. A book with Persia for a selling possesses an unusual attraction, for, since the early days when Persia*! poets sang of roses and nightingales,! ihat historic country has not often: furnish.-d a bn. kground In hovels by: Western authors. Kachel C. Shauffler has th.?refor?l ihe advantage of novelty, ? for almost! ? vi ry scene in her novel, "the Goodly Fellowship," transpires In the I'ttle town of Muramna, P;rsla. The ho.-o ine of the novel is Jean Stuart, of New York and Rar Harbor, a young woman of much importance in the select society of those centres, by her position and wealth. Disappointed and dlstl lu.-l >n>-l. however, she seeks relief In change nnd travel, carrying on mean? while through her Now York lawyers, a suit against hsr brother-ln-lnw. whom she desires to punish as lier enomy unJ the cause of her si\pa.rullon from a niece, the dearest object In h:r life. Her travels lead her ovon farther ami farther afield. She was in Paris when the news enmo to her of her nloce's death. Shortly afterwards friends of hers. Professor Arnold and his wife, begged her to share their Journey around the world. When tin little party, which Included a Greek courier and his French wife, reached Tiflis. Mrs. Arnold received a tel?- 1 gram about one of her children which obliged her to return home. Then Miss Stuart resolved to go on In company with the courier and his wife. All vent well until the River Ar.is was j reached. Then the courier got Into a fuss with the custom house official*, land one morning Miss Stuart awoke to the realisation thru she had been turned over to the care of ia Mussulman, j ! Hadji Husaln, who. with his band of \ muleteers, was to act as her c.-cort to i Muramna. Husaln w as a brigand and immcd- t i lately attempted to kidnap Miss Stuart and take nor away Into the mountains. She. being a young woman of un- I j daunted courage and resource, sent a rioto secretly by a bearer, who real- J 1 ised her danKcrous position, to Dan Lawrence, the head of the American! Mission in Muramna, begging him to come to her aid. Lawrence could not i respond himself, but sent Thorley Prescott, n young American engineer, to the rcscu.v Prescott tame Just inj time, rescued her from an embarrass? ing position and conveyed her safely to the home of the Lawrences. i She reached shelter without an idea' Of her real environment. When She deslrsd to go to a hotel, she was in? formed that Muramna had no hole] "When she demanded a maid and courier, none were forthcoming. When' she wanted to continue her Journey, she found that it would be Impossible for a woman to travel over the Per-: elan mountain passes in winter. So. chafe as Fhe dill under the restraint and dullness of inaction, she found she must make the best of circumstances and adjust herself 10 conditions Muramna. ? | Perhaps If Thorley Prescott had not j been there, matters might have bei n different. Certain it is that Miss j Stuart, of New York and Rar Harbor,' began by being very much like a j round peg In a square hole win n the I little company of missionaries took h. r : Into their midst and made her oni of . their little circle. At first Miss Stuart was repelled by every phase of mis? sion work, the work in the schools,, in the hospital. In the church. The ' Ignorance and pauperism of the peo pie appalled her. The Idea of men and women of intelligence and refine- ; men! spending their lives in an unend Ing sacrifice to no purpose, app ?ared | deplorable, j But, little by little, her prejudices melted away. Little by little the no- I billty of the work appealed to her, I "Engaged her thought, demanded and' I obtained her time and interest. Little I 1 by little she perceived that the day, I might come when Pei slnns would wake I up and want for themselves and their! [ children the things that other national ! have. In the light of what the work j I and the faith of the men and women ' who, thousands of miles away from ! their native land, were engag .d in ii heroic dally struggle against Ignor? ance and superstition, taught her, the j little New York and Bar Harbor so j lal cult dwindled Into insignificance. ? When she came to Muramna, sh'3 felt I amazed and anger- d Hint a man of more than usual promise, a man cap- I able of doing hl? things In a big I world should renounce ambition and ! be content with obscurity. Bui she I ended by honoring efforts that trans formed starving, sulhsn natives of the I hill country around Muromna into In-. tclligent, faithful workmen and Im- | pressed the lessons of Christianity up- | on them through its practical appli cation. The book Is written with great ; charm, Its humor being a specially ) saving grace and its characterization oeh of its chlefcsl merits. "The Department store." Ply Margarete B?hme.

' By Brand Whitlock The Bobbs Merrill Co.. of Indianapolis, Ind. $1.25 net. Brand Whitlock. Mayor ot Toledo, ne.ds no Introduction to the readng public Long since he established his reputation as a writer of power. Ills I "The 13th District" was generally ac I capted as a strong novel of American I politics, and his "The Turn of the ' Balance" created a sensation among men and women of all classes. And now Mr. Whitlock offers "The Kail Guy," a hook which combines all the good elements of his previous offerings with other finalities whirh are Just as strong, und at the same time show Ithe author In a new light. Mr. Whitlock is nothing, if not ver? satile. His experience as a newspaper man. as a lawyer and a politician has given him a broad grasp on human life, and it is only necessary for him to draw on his vast store of knowledge In order to create characters and sit? uations which are Intensely Interesting, and, above all things, real. Such a bo,,k is -The Fall Guy." Mr Whit? lock never writes a word that Is n?t important, a sentence that is not full of Interest. With deft strokes he sketches his characters, anel they be? come not men ot straw nor Images of wooel, but humans of flesh an I blood, who tnlk and act like living people, In whoso veins the blood of life Is (lowing. The author has torn away the cur? tain, the make-shift drapery, with. Which man Is wont to clothe his real self, and he has revealed him as no is. But there is no pessimism here, for Brand Whlttoc,k appreciates human nature too well to be a p.sslnilst. Neither has he sought to idealize nor herolze the criminal, though ho be? lieves In giving every man his just duo. The book Is well worth while. Writ? ten by a master in the art of net ion writing. It is polished, pertinent, poig? nant. It Is rich In action and story and Is calculated to appeal to readers of all classes. "The Judgment of the Sea, and Other , Storlea." By Ralph D. Palm-.
