SEW BOORS AND MAGAZINES Bookmakers Taking a Best Binco the Closing of the Holidaji , OPIE READ PUTS FORTH A NEW ROMANCE N vr Encyclopedia fnr Ilnar Tropic nil Hcvr Method of Tenchlim Art nil Mannnl Trnlnlnu Sliort M t of Recent Mnia lne . As usual during the early part of Janu ary there have been very few now books coming to hand. Thcro are , however , some quite recent works , n number of them of considerable value , that cither did not ar rive In time or were overlooked In the mass of literature claiming attention lust prior to the holidays. Among the works of notion that might come under this head Is Ople Head's latest story , "A Yankee from the West. " Whllo the critics professed to Bee something Incongruous In his "An Arkansas Planter" and "The Waters of Caney Fork , " they have only good words for his latest production. It Is , In fact , a strong1 and con sistent story told In the epigrammatic style of the author. The central flguro Is a young college-bred Connecticut Yankee , who on the death of hU father drifts out Into the Dakotas and becomes a cowboy and des perado. To escape the penalty of a robbery ho works his way eastward , and under an assumed name rents o farm In Illinois , earns the money to make full restitution for the theft , and through the Influence of bis love for a noble girl enters upon a new and honorable career In life. The dramatic cle ment of the story Is In the flrst Introduc tion to the reader of the hero while In search of work near a mall village In Illi nois and the retention to the end of the secret of his career In the Dakotas. His education , reticence , Industry and culti vated manners render him a subject of gos sip and curiosity to bis neighbors and fa cilitate the Introduction of o. number of quaint and Interesting characters. Two or three of these characters are remarkably well drawn. The rough , shrewd but kindhearted - hearted -widow from whom the hero rents a farm Is a typo of Independent womanhood not at all unusual In the farming communi ties of the western states , and a better de lineation of It need not bo looked for ; and the poor old professor , whoso eccentricities have reduced him from the faculty of a college to a clerkship In a planing mill , and who finally , on losing his position , sacri fices his life , Insured for 110,000 for the benefit of his family , Is a character sadly real and pathetic. Rand , McNally & Co. , Chicago. Another work that was of a character to attract attention , but that was overlooked In the revlewa In these columns prior to the holidays , was "Pemberton , or One Hundred Years Ago , " by Henry Peterson , a histori cal romance of the time of the American revolution. The scenes are for the most part laid In Philadelphia and the vicinity of Tappan and Tarrytown. Many prominent officers In both the British and American armies nro made to play an Important part In the story. Among the British are Sir Henry Clinton , Sir William Howe and Major Andre ; among the Americans , General George Washington , Captain Allan McLano nnd General Benedict Arnold. The plot In cludes a , double love story , In which two English sisters become engaged , the older to an American patriot , the younger to Andre. Some of the historical events as de scribed In the book are Interestingly writ ten , but weary the reader with too much de tail of what every good American and loyal Englishman knows well. The chapters bearing upon 'the Inception and execution of Arnold's'lr'eason'nrid 'Andrei's sad end are exceptionally well adapted to a historical work , so minutely Is the whole affair de scribed. An attractive addition to the work are the Illustrations , the best being those of Mrs. Benedict Arnold and child , Benedict Arnold , Sir Henry Clinton , the Chow house at Germantown and Allan McLane. Henry T. Coates & Co. . Philadelphia. The scene of "Ezeklcl's Sin , " by J. H. Foarce , Is laid on the Cornish coast and the chief characters are flshermem Ezcklcl makes his living by "crabbing , " and whlk following his work finds the body of drowned man with a money belt on it Through love of his daughters , whom h wishes to sea well dressed , he steals the money , and the book Is devoted to showing the curse which the Ill-gotten gold brings The story Is powerfully told and though thi theme Is old It has original features. Georgi H. Richmond & Son , New York. Work * ot Fact. To leave the world of fiction and turn ti more real facts , a work that will be founi of general value Is "Chandler's Encyclope dla. " This Is a work that ought to appea to busy people especially , because , whll containing more than the unabridged edi tloni of the various dictionaries of the Kng llshjanguago , It Is brief and concise. Ther are'lhree volumes edited by Prof. Wtlllan Henry Chandler of Lehlgh university , as sltted by many well known scholars and scl ntfsts. The assistant editors are F. M Bird , editor of Llpplncott's ; Chester V Dietrich and Arthur S. Martin. Among th specialists who have assisted In the makln . of the work Prof. H. H. Wing of Cornel writes ot agriculture and domestic animals Dr. Julius Nelson discusses biology ; Mont gomery Schuyler , architecture ; Prof. N. I Brltton , botany ; Albert S. Belles , ceo nomlcs ; Prof. Barker , physics ; A. 8. Anthony , engraving ; Dr. Henr Garnett , geography ; Dr. Henry e Princeton , literature ; H. E. Krchbl , * ! , muelt Prof. Baldwin of Princeton , psychology , ac Walter Camp , sports. Each contributor ai ' pears to have exercised skill in comprei slon and the result Is an enormous amoui | of good , fresh matter In brief form. Ei ! peclally is this true of the scientific sul jects into which specialists have put muc of their own original work , as In. the brl sketch of Darwin the writer givesno hli of his Important place as the pioneer the evolution doctrine , simply referring him as "tho father of modern biology Darwin Is also said to have "cared lltt ; for Imaginative literature and found Shak Apoaro dull. " The facts are that as 1 grow older Darwin admitted be could n appreciate Shakespeare , but one of h great resources was to listen to Dlcken novels read to him. The volumes are abe COO double column pages each , fully lllu trated , and the type la' clear and goo Many ot the Illustrations are new and t maps are good. Peter Fenclon Collier , N ( York.

It Is an elegantly bound volun 7WxlOt4 Inches , of 4M page * . It cental ' forty-four plates and 478 Illustrations , tbfs work Mr. Tadd describes the natui methods of education which he has work out during a remarkably varied experleni Since 1884 ho has 'been ' director ot the pu lie school of Industrial art at Pblladi phla. also of drawing and manual tralnl In the parochial schools of that city , t sides having had a wide experience w ! night schools , summer schools , norn and vacation classes. Many thousands 1 children and hundreds of teachers have ; cclved his instruction , with a result tl the author thus sums up : "After tweni , two years'1 experience with all the varl < f schemes of training we have come dote to fundamental facti aud on these we bi built up n method , rranonable , feasible and without great cost , adapted to all grades , from child to adult ; a plan that can bo applied without friction to every kind of educational Institution and limited only by the capacity of the individual ; A mcttio'1 ' covered by natural law , working with the absolute precision ot nature Itself ; a process that unfolds the capacities ot children as unfold the leaves ind flowers ; a system that teaches the pupils that they are In the plan And part of life and enables them to work out their own salva tion on the true lines of drslgn and work as illustrated in every natural thing. " The simplicity ot these methods and the little outfit they require , as well BS their results , adapt them to schools or clasps ot all kinds. Instead ot requiring costly 'buildings and expensive machinery , the fundamentals in real manual training can be given by the ordinary teacher during only two to four hours a wcelt , by proper Instruction in ambidextrous drawing on blackboard , freehand drawing and painting , modeling In clay and carving in wood , along with nature study. The carving only re quires special tools , and a $5 set of these ( to bo bad of any hardware dealer ) suffices for several pupils. Orange Judd Company Chicago. Few years of American history are replete with BO many momentous events as have been crowded Into 1898 and all of them have been handled In The Chicago Dally News Almanac for 1899 with a conscientious re gard for both truth and their Importance. A cursory glance at the table of contents shows the * volume to contain a fair and concise account ot the Spanish-American war , with valuable articles on tbo Philip pine Islands , Porto Rico , Cuba and the Ladrones. The whole subject of the an nexation ot Hawaii , supplemented by a de scription of the agricultural , mineral and Industrial value of the Islands , is given the Importance It deserves. The movements for the dismemberment of China and Africa are among the pages ot the volume , while the Jewish movement toward Palestine Is given a place that will be appreciated by others than the Zionists themselves. The romance of the gigantic whclit corner ot 1897-98 , a speculation that affected every grain market in the world , It a valuable portion of the book. Besides these features there are notable additions to the agricul tural , educational , financial , political , In dustrial , naval , military and other depart ments of the volume. The election tablet are full and complete , and nothing Is oml ) ted that could add substantial value to voluminous year book for the most exciting twelve months of American hlitory.

F. Bibcock and Will Scott. The vessels are chartered in the names of different pran- tatlon agencies , but this is merely for con venience , as by agreement such agency will be represented In each cargo. The bulk ot the sugar crop this year goes to the trust The annexation of the Islands , with the probability that the navigation laws will soon be extended to them , making traffic between here and any part ot the United States coastwise trade to be carried on only In American bottoms , has complicated the problem of getting the sugar around the Horn. None but American vessels have been chartered for this traffic. But the number of available American vessels Is limited. So by arrangement the sugar ot different agen cies will be distributed among the vessels to meet the convenience of the tmst , which is the purchaser. The British steamship Tartar arrived yes terday , eleven days from Yokohama , with 704 Japanese Immigrants and a quantity of freight. The British ship Anambra arrived yester day , 17S days from Liverpool. It experienced very bad weather , gales and heavy seas and was obliged to put In at Montevideo In dis tress for repairs.

Have you ever thought , saya the Boston Herald , when you were slipping on your swallow-tall of an evening , quite as a mat ter ot course , before going to the play , what a wonderful revolution has come about of late years In the wearing ot that dressy array ? Your father , for instance , would not have dreamed of such a thing as parading It at the theater ; hardly at a dinner , where he was In the habit of considering what he called his Prince Albert splendor enough , and even that , it Is more than likely , he felt laid him open to the suspicion of being a dandy. One dress suit , two at the most , lasted him a life-time. It was fondly Im agined to have a style of Its own , rising superior to passing whims of fashion , and vast was the pride the dear old gentleman took In his personal appearance when some occasion was deemed Important enough to demand the full panoply of war paint and feathers. To the camphor trunk be went solemnly then , drew forth his gala attire from the depths where It had lain carefully folded away for months , maybe for years , since Its last display in public ; Into It he inducted himself before the looking-glass , strutting up and down like a peacock and Innocently fancying that the old garments were a * handsome as ever. Ah , you never dealt him a more cruel blow than when you re. moved the scales from his eyes and polntec1 out to him how threadbare and shabby and grotesque they had become ! Ho submitted to bo taken to your tailor , ordered a new suit of the latest pattern , was fitted to It , and paid for It without a murmur , although the price was a staggerer , and now when he Is dragged to an evening reception , the opera , a dinner of his mercan. tile club , you need not blush for him. He Is as well turned out as any man ot his ago. His simple vanity has received a hurt from which there Is no recovering. Yet In fata heart he still clings to the belief that the old coat deserves respect and deference. Sell It to any wandering Jew ? Not a bit of It.

Pmbllolr DiSBYOvra a Report that He Is Married. Among the advertisements printed In the Boston Herald recently , under the heading ot "Legal Notices , " was the following : To Whom It May Concern This Is to certify that I am not a married man. Mr. Charles W. Eatmon , 162 Ash street , Chelsea , Mass. , December 23 , 1898. The above was not , aa som weary bene dict might Imagine , an exultant proclama- lon by Mr. Eatmon of his own freedom from matrimonial ties ; neither was It , as some yearning bachelor might believe , a shrewd move on the part of the advertiser to put himself in a conspicuous place as & can didate for marriage. It was simply an earnest and sober effort of Mr. Eatmon to clear himself of certain embarrassments which have been imposed upon him by an unscruplous enemy. The tale Is ono of romance and Jealousy la the colored society of the south end , re lates the Herald. The reason that has led Mr. Eatmon to give his affairs the publicity which will result from his peculiar ad vertisement is that Jio desires to smooth the course ot his affections for an estimable' young colored woman. Mr. Eatmon has a residence In Chelsea , but only sleeps thoro. His business is In the west and south ends of this olty , and he is brought dally In contact with many people. He Is frank in his declaration that he de sires to marry the young woman In tbo affair. The courtship has attracted general attention In the circles In which itho pair move , and both Mr. Eatmon and the young woman have been greatly worried lately by repeated assertions that Mr. Eatmon Is al ready & married man. These stories , Mr. Eatmon asserts , are the Inventions of an enemy of his. Not only baa this enemy told the troublesome stories Verbally , but he has written several letters to friends and relatives of the young man defaming his character. Mr. Eatmon declares that lie knows who this enemy Is , and that If the annoyances continue he will prosecute him. The enmity Is said by Mr. Eatmon to bo the result ot Jealousy. In the publication of the od- vertlfeement Mr. Eatmon has sought to legally deny the stories that ar0 Injuring him. Flflelil Decline * a Senatorshlp. ST. ALBANS. Vt. . Jan. 11. Hon. B. F.
