Misleading Book Titles. Some book titles are distinctly mis leading. Jtusklu's On the Construc tion of Sbeepfolds" Is a famous exum ple of these, nud there are others. Mr. Henry James' novel "The Lesson of the Master" has more than once becu catalogued as a religious work. The same fate befell Sir F.dwurd Hamil ton's "Conversion and Redemption." a highly techuicul study of schemes for the reduction of the natioual debt. "Dlsloyala: or. The Doubtful Priest." was the title originally selected by Shorthouse for the book we now know as "John Inglesunf." It was pointed out to him Hint such a title would leud people to regard It as an attack on Roman Catholicism, and this In duced him to change 1L London Chronicle.
