"Located as It Is In a country where the

had control of expenses and have limited
the advertising to such an extent that tho

Stewart Edward White has laid the set
ting of "The Westerners" In tho Rlack
Hills during the early rush to tho gold
fields. Tho two central figures to the plot
oro a young girl, Molly Iafond, growing
to womanhood In a rough mining camp, and
Michael Lafond, n scheming, revengeful
halfbreed, her supposed father. In his
younger days Lafond had been wronged, as
he thought, and to repay the Injury he had
caused the death of a young mother and
had stolen her child during an Indian raid.
"If you wish to harm a person tako away
that which he loves best, but that Is not
life," a white man had told htm. So the
child was preserved and brought up on bd
Indian reservation ns tho daughter of the
halfbreed. Men asked few questions tn
those days. When the girl, Molly, was
almost a woman Lafond came for her and
took her to tho mining camp of Copper
Creek. To have her grow to womanhood
coarse, hardened, disreputable, as were the
women of the camp, that was his plan.
Then he would tell her of her family and
her birth. Her shame and remorse would
be bis rovenge. Rut this end was never
accomplished. A New England conscience
asserts Itself at the right moment the love
of Jack Graham, a young miner from the
east, offered a refuge. The evolution of
tho girl's character and the development of
Michael Lafond's cunning and coolly laid
schemes furnish the Interesting elements
of tho plot. The Intermittent humor and
the sketches of the western life of that
picturesque period ore especially note

of consequence, engaged to Drenda Maclane,

beautiful young actress, and breaks his
marriage engagement In consequence. A
few hours later Elsie Is found cruelly
stabbed In her room, with n gory knife be-
sldo her and a tender note from Alden In

and others, and Drenda visits the hospital to

George Dlrd Grlnnell. whose new book of
Indian tales entitled "The Punishment of
the Stingy and Other Indian Stories" Is
Just published, has had a unique experience.
He has been dignified by the title of War
Chief by his friends nnd admirers, the
Pawnee Indians, and during his association
among them and with other tribes of the
red men he gathered material for most ex
cellent Indian stories. Sitting with them
by the aides of their fires at night, he has
had tho unusual privilege of listening to
their legends and folk-lore, Just nt they
have been passed on for many generations
from slro to son. Such records are not only
most entertaining In the form In which the
author presents them, but they nre of last
ing value In the history of tho native
races of the American continent. Among
the stories contained In the volume are:
"Little Friend Coyote," "The Girl Who
as," "Rluejay the Imitator," The Noth

moro Is peculiarly fitted, by nature, train
ing and circumstances for the telling of this
story. A practical newspaper man, his
stylo Is strikingly simple nnd direct, and
to this he adds tho observations gathered
in extensive travels. Ho was for Bome
time city editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
nnd has been prominently Identified
with other papers, but his best known pleco
of newspaper work, perhaps, was his re
port of tho Johnstown flood for the New
York World, which was remarkable for its
graphic descriptions nnd faithful portrayals
of fact. Mr. Wetmore was In tho very vortex
or the extraordinary struggle of which ho
writes In the "Southern Cross." As a non
combatant he mingled freely with both
sides, and Is ns conversant with tho people
and conditions of these South American
republics as Is Kipling with the various
phases of Indian life. Tho story Is full
of sparkling Incident, charmingly told.
There is not a dry page In it. Much his

the thrilling situations of the narrative
that It Is dominated by them, nnd tho
