TRAFFICS and Discov«ries, a collec
tion of tales by Rudyard Kipling,
recently published by £H>ubleday,
Page & Co., wfll disappoint all
save those very ardent Kip
lingites for whom, he Is master and
to whom his most obscure utterances
carry light. This volume contains the
much discussed and questioned "They,"
which appeared in a magazine during the
past summer. Also "Wireless," "The Cap
tive," "Steam Tactics," "Mrs. Bathurst,"
and several others, and between each two
stories are verses in Kipling's well-known
style. While the book as a whole will
add nothing to his tame, it cannot be
flenied that Kipling is absolutely original
In everything he does, and that his Eng
lish is unimpeachable. One may be per
mitted to give up "They," since so shin
ing a light as an editorial writer in the
New York Evening Post confesses that
he does not know what it is about, and
asserts that obscurity in language Is not
necessarily genius. The entirely opposite
meanings which different writers have
drawn from this cryptic little tale was one
of the most amusing developments of the
last few months in the literary world.
Mr. Kipling cannot be expected to fur
nish diagrams with his stories, hence an
appeal to him has resulted in nothing,
but it is quite safe to say that had he
always dealt in the mystic and vague, he
would never have arrived or stand where
he stands today. For simplicity and
clearness of expression have ever been
the distinguishing marks of greatness in
writing, in spite of the phenomenal suc
cess of a few great English writers whose
works would seem to prove the contrary,
But after all is said and done, a Kipling
book is an event, hence this collection is
Miss Kathorine Holland Brown, whose
portrait appears on this page, is the
author of "Diane." and was widely known
as the writer of pleasing short stories
before she undertook any more lengthy
work. She lives in Quincy, 111., where
her father is a successful bridge engi
neer. She has recently been visiting a
town Jn Illinois, formerly Mormon, on the
Mississippi, where Cabet's dream of an
ideal government was shattered. This
gave her the Idea of the French com
munislio settlement which forms the back
ground for "Diane." She traveled much
in that region, and made a thorough in
vestigation before beginning her story".
In this manner she informed herself of a
pictureesquo incident in American his
tory which has been overlooked by novel
H was only to be expected that Miss
Miriam Michelson would follow up her
great success, "In the Bishop's Carriage,''
with another book immediately, so that
"The Madigans," which has just been
Issued, io, being eagerly bought up by
her admirers. Of course, it seems that
this bright young woman has made a
success very rapidly, but nobody knows
how much she has struggled or how long
she has worked. Miss Michelson is a
Californian, and lives in San Francisco,
where she has been doing newspaper
work, especially in the line of dramatic
criticism. She has spent two years in
Philadelphia writing for the North Amer
ican, and doing some magazine work at
the same time. Her very successful novel
grew out of a short story first published
In Ainslee's, ami elaborated into a serial,
which appeared in The Reader, after
which it was issued in book form by
Bobbs-Merrlll Co. The ethics of her
book have been much questioned, and
even some critics who have much admired
Its style and construction have been
doubtful of its effect upon the young per
son. "The Madigans" is absolutely dif
ferent in plot and treatment and shows
Miss Wichebson to be as versatile as she

whether her new book makes the suc

The Misfit Crown —By Frances Davidge.
D. Appleton & Co. For sale toy St. Paul
Book and Stationery company.
Though this is intended as a «tory of
the life of Leonida Montedonico, a most
charming young woman, to most readers
it will be rather the tragic history of
John Ashburton, who. in spite of the
author, is the centra! figure -of the book.
Me wag not young and had been dipap
pointed in love, -and "was fearfuQy blase.
But when he-met Leonida ,she made him
feel young and renewed his faith in hu
man nature. Her mother die*. John asks
her to marry him, but Leonida knows it
is more from pity than love, so she re
fuses him. "Bat Leonkla's "fate 5s inttr
woven with tiiat of two brothers, Rufus
and' Geoffry Carnlfex, types as opposite
as the poles. The elder, Rufus, is cold,
severe, with no sense of hiimor, and is
devoted to literature, to which he is con
tributing a b<>ok In the shape of a dis
quisition upon religion. Geoffry Is a
much more natural sort of chap, healthy,
athletic, handsome, without mucl! senti-
The Author of "Diane 11-
ment. Of these two Leonlda loves best
Geoffry, but he has not waked up and
goes off unconpeious of the void he leaves
behind him. But John Ashburton was
very shrewd, and knowing where Leonida
was concerned, and when he hears that
she is to marry Rufus, his heart misgives
him and he fears for her future. Just
why she married Rufus. is not made ex
actly clear, save that she feels sorry for
him, a very poor reason for marrying
any man. From here on the story is
painful, and is of the gradual awaken
ing of Leonida to her mistake, the return
of Geoffry. who falls desperately in love
with his sister-in-law, and the loyal and
beautiful friendship of John Ashburton.
Leonida i 3 desperate and half makes up
her mind to run away with Geoffry to es
cape the monotony of an existence with
Rufus, whose sole thought in life is fin
ishing the book. Finally she is saved by
John, who is ever her good angel, and
Just after her interview with him he
meets with an accident and dies. Geoffry
goes away and .Leonida remains and does
her duty, a far from satisfactory ending
of the book to the reader, in spite of the
corectness of the ethics. A beautiful and
interesting story, however, even though
many will find it somewhat inconsistent

This volume tells of times In our coun

keen spirit of rivalry among the French,

The tale is complete In itself, but in it
are introduced a number of characters
which have already figured in this series,
including the brave young soldier, Dave
Morris; his equally sturdy cousin, Henry,
and their mutual friends. Bam Barring
ford, the backwoodsman, and White Buf
falo, a chief of the I>olawarea. Pontiac,
the great chief of the Ottawas, is also a
leading figure, and much Is told of his
work in organising the great conspiracy
against the whites which has few paral
lels in the history of the red men.
The plot turns upon the establishing of
a trading post upon the Ohio river, and
many hunting scenes and visits to Indian
villages arc depicted. The historical set
ting of the tale is based upon facts, and
the Indians are shown as they a dually
were—neither wholly good nor wholly
bad, and the same ratty be said of the
hunters, trappers and trader's. A fight
with thi: Indians and the French in a
snowstorm is especially realistic, and the
entire book carries with it the atmos
phere of colonial times.

Thurston'B story seems to be the success
of the season.
Mirs Elizabeth Jordan is receiving
many letters from girls concerning her
new convent' story, "May IveTson—Her
Book." which appeared serially in Har
per's Magazine, and is now out in book
form. Convent girls are well represented
in the correspondence, but the book seems
to have equally interested girls in board
ing schools and Mminariea from Maine
to California. One of them writes that
only a single copy of Harper's Magazine
is taken by her school library, and that
erery month there has been a- struggle
among the students for first chance to
read the adventures of May Ivereon. The
favorite chapter of the book seems to
b First Aid to Kittle James"—a tale !
of examinations which strikes a re- I
sponsive chord in every school girl's j
Mr. MncGrath, whose .new novel,
"The Man on the Box," has
Just been issued, is one of the
many men who have blossomed into fic

Giath's journalistic work has been car
ried on chiefly in Syracuse. N. V.. where
he has made his home t<rr many years.
His previous novels. 'The Puppet
Crown" and "The Qrey CloaltT' both
extraordinary- successful, were swash

America after his long wanderings in old
days and imaginary kingdoms. But he

A poem by Edward Markham. author of
'The Man With the Hoe." is entitled
"Inasmuch," illustrating the saying of
Jesus, "Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one or the least of these. My breth
ren, je have done it unto Me."
The poem tells of a watchman on the
castled height of Moscow, who, beaten
and buffeted by the blasts of a winter
night, yet. seeing a poor, destitue beggar
passing in his rags, took off his coat and
put it upon the passerby. The beautiful
lesson is worth remembering:
"Ami tearing off his hairy coat, he_ran
And wrapped it warmly round the beggar
That night the piling snows began to fall.
And the good watchman died beside the
But. waking in that better land that lies
Under the greater stars that are Gods
Behold! the Lord came out to gre^t him
Wearing the coat he gave by Moscow's
dome —
Wearing his coat, the very coat he gave
By Moscow's tower before he felt the
And Ivan, by the old earth-memory
Cried softly, with a wonder in his word:
"And where, dtar Lord, found you this
coat of mine.
A thing unfit for glory such as Thine?'
When the Lord answered, with a look of
'This my son. you ga%e to Mo last
night.' "
Habits are forming like masonry. Every
thought f-oems -small, a^ every brick
seems small. And yet. I notice, in the
building that is going up behind my

uations as adventurous, wit as polished,
laughter as hearty, ladies .as fair, men as
brave, and love as strong, U3 ever' he
found them in Osia and Paris.
Some people think thet personal popu
larity is the result of a natural gift.
Emily Holt brings out a book through
