The real action of the story occupies less than two days, and the faithfulness of supposed foes and the treachery of retainers give ample material for an Ingenious and exciting plot.

"Many Waters," by Robert Bhackelton, Is a story of New York end is the author's first novel. He writes of the New York of today, and glimpses of the teeming life of gorgeous caravansaries, of Wall street In trigue, of the ceaseless activity of the preas, of a street railway strike and other widely divergent phases of metropolitan life form a part of his brilliant story. The characters that move through these vari ous scenes compel Interest and will leave a permanent impression. Mr. Shackelton has not fallen into the error of attempting to cover the metropolis in a book, but he hae selected features which will attract everyone. His graphic scenes indicate a new writer whose gift of perception and power of expression are qualities that will make their mark. He was educated as a lawyer, but abandoned his profession for newspaper and general literary work in the metropolis. His Ave years' experience on one of the dallies In New York brought him Into dally contact with the lights and shadows of that city and gave blm the foundation for this Interesting novel. Pub lished by D. Appleton A Co. "The Hound of the Baskervllles" Is an other adventure of Sherlock Holmes by A. Conon Doyle. Dr. Wataon, who chronicles J he adventures of his friend, the famous Sherlock Holmes, tells us In the course of "The Hound of the Baskervllles" that "Holmes himself had said that no more complex case had come to him In all the long series of his sensational Investiga tions." This thrilling tale Is based upon n old Devonshire superstition. Since the time of Sir Hugo Baskervllle, centuries ago, the family was said to have been haunted by a horrible, flre-breathtng hound, which trove Its victims over the lonely moor Into the quicksands. Sir Charles was found dead on his grounds, the only clue to his death being the footprints of a monstrous hound near his body. When his next of Viti, Sir Henry,' toeK possession 'of the es tate a aeries of uucanny happenings led him to believe that he, too, waa deatlned to become a victim of the hound of the Baakervllles. He waa saved by Sherlock. Holmes, but even that prince of detectives was deeply involved In the roaie before he finally solved the weird mystery. Pub lished by McClure, Phillips Co.

His sdventures will keep even the Inveterate novel reader fully absorbed to the last page; and no lees diverting are the curious auxiliary characters and circum stances through whose means his story works Itself to a happy climax. The Macmlllan company has published a new book by Charles Major, author of "When Knighthood Was In Flower." It is entitled "Dorothy Vernon of Hsddon Hall." The plot Is centered round Hsddon hall, famous In history as one of the places which sheltered Mary Queen of Scots dur ing her captivity. The story itself Is of the romantic attachment and elopement of Dorothy Vernon and young John Manners, In spite of tbe opposition of parents and guardians. The time Is around Among many effective scenes In Mr. Major's story Is that of Mary Stuart'a capture at the duke of Rutland's castle, when Dorothy Vernon, riding with a warning to her lover, and tbe bitter news that It la she who hss betrayed him and the young queen tt Scots, arrives all but exhausted to meet them under the gloomy half-light of the torches at the castle gate, already under arrest. Some of the rooms In Haddon hall, which Is the scene of the novel, stand ex actly as Dorothy herself saw them 300 years ago. In the stste chsmber still Hands the canopied bed of green velvet and white satin. In which tradition says Queen Elizabeth slept when she visited Haddon to open the first ball In the new ball room of that day the very ball room from which Dorothy stole away, not to hear the earl of Leicester press his suit, as her fsther dreamed, but to Join her life to that of the politically-disgraced young heir of Rutland, her father's enemy. 'The Story of the Vine" Is a new book by Edward R. Emerson. Several years ago the author made an extended tour abroad with a view of visiting and study ing the wire-producing centers of Europe, Intending to use the information for the betterment of conditions as they existed In America. Tbe book contains this In formation. In his preface the author says: "It Is hardly necesssry to say I am a sin cere advocate of the use of pure wines. I honestly believe that their use would do more toward the solving of the temper ance question than all other efforts com bined. If what I have written serves In any degree to open the eyes of my fellow citizens I will feel that I am amply repaid." Published by O. P. Put nam's Sons. "The Honor of the Braxtons" la a story of student life In Normandy and the Latin quarter, by J. William Fosdlck.

A com plication of Incidents and poor health com pels their return to America, where on his 26th birthday Braxton dies.

The Forty-First Street Presbyterian church at Chicago, 111., was decided upon a the place for tb next meeting of the board. Tksradsy Moralnar'a Session. The Thursday morning program opened with a "Devotional Hour," at which Mrs. J. H. Trowbridge of Illinois presided. At 10 o'clock the convention met In regu lar session and was led In prayer by Mrs. George Tllden of Omaha. Tb first order of business wss the synodic! report from tat secretaries, a part of which was given Wednesday. Montana' report was read by Miss Elizabeth Ross of Chicago. Ne braska' report, presented by Mrs. F. B. Coulter, showed a healthy state of affairs In the Antelope commonwealth and es pecial mention was made of the Box Butte presbytery, which was commended for Its Igor. North Dakota' report, which had been prepared by Mr. A. E. Waddell, waa read by Mrs. Charles Robinson. The secretary deprecated the fact that the women of her state are very largely transient. "They are her today and there tomorrow," she wrote. "In my particular Presbyterlal so ciety there is a marked numerical weak ness, as most of the women have moved away, my own health has failed, and ao Instesd of shining during this last year. It has Just been jmoklng." Mrs. G. M. Erwln, who told of the work In South Dakota, mentioned the same state of affairs the Instability of the population, and it was to this fact that she attributed the deficit In gifts. Touches an Moraoalam. The report from Utah, prepared' by Mrs. M. M. T. Allen and read by Mrs. R. 8. Mc Niece, was Interesting, as It touched rstber frankly upon Mormonlam. "There Is an undercurrent of pathos In the report from some parts of our state." aatd the report, "since they tell of women who dare not openly enroll themselves for Christianity because they are members of Mormon house holds. Mormontsm gained atrength with statehood. The doctrine of pollgamy U taught with renewed vigor In I'tab and Idaho; It la not dead It Is simply being held in abeyance until its advocates get sufficient strength to declsrs it openly. I believe that a crisis is approaching In Christian work In Clan. I believe that tbe Mormons are waiting for an opportunity to try their atrength anaw with Cbriatlans. There are Indications of It everywhere. Mormon children are being withdrawn from Gentile achoola; Mormon priests are becom ing Insolent In their consciousness cf re newed power, and there la no anti-Mormon paper of any Influence in the slate to com bat the evil." The Wisconsin report was resd by Miss Agnes Rumsey. Mrs. Abbls 8tebblns, who has been a missionary to India, gave an Interesting talk oa the lite of the common people lu the Gangea country. "A Hindoo' Idea of in Is to eome la coutact with something unclean," said she. "We have to teach them first the ten commsndments la order that they may know God's idea of sin. Hlndoolsm Is sick unto destb In India and their prleata, realUIng this, are busily advocating reforms." Miss Mary Jswett, who for thirty years has been a mlaslonsry at Tabriz. Persia, told a melancholy story of this benighted country, with special reference to Ita loos morals and the degredation of Its women. Mrs. D. B. Wella gave a sprightly and somewhat humorous talk on "Hinderments." It seems the word "hinderments" wss a favorite with an old negreee bouse err ant of the Wella family. "Aunt Nancy was quoted as say lag, "Hindrmeai get behind end pull and battlements get In front and push." Mrs. Wells drew a les son from this homely philosophy. The forenoon session clcsed with the election of officer tor the ensuing year. yaodlral Secretaries Rrkxirt. The reports of the tynodlcal secretaries were made yesterday. Five etates of of the1 northwest were represented In these reports, as follows: Illinois, Mrs. J. 8. Johnson; Indlsaa, Mi's. C. P. Luce; Iowa, Mrs. J. C. McClintock; Michigan, Mrs. E. E. Hammond; Minnesota, Mr. E. 8. Williams. Mrs. McClintock spoke encouragingly of the work In Iowa. "The work of the Synod leal society for the past yesr is one of fslthful continusnce lft well doing," said she. "Since our last annual meeting there haa been an undercurrent of deeper Interest In mission work. Judging from the msny letters of Inquiry thst have been sent to the officers. Several of the Presbyterlal societies have adopted watchwords or mot tos for the year and these have been like spurs to oblige them to go forward, trust ing the dear Master for help and atrength. One Is very suggestive, 'Instant obedience to the call of duty and Lord work.' "Eight of our ten Presbyterlsl societies report an advance In gifts. The extra work of giving $545 toward the completion of a building In Tagoo, Cores. Is being cared for, but how nearly the amount given will reach our aim will pot be known until October next. "The other special object wss the pur chase of an Ice machine for Hawaii. More than enough ha been contributed foi this purpose, proving that our auxiliaries enjoy giving to Bpeclal objects." Story from Minnesota. The story told by Minnesota was of growth and progress. "Her figures look about as they did last year," read Mrs. E. S. Williams, "but if you could see her heart I am sure you would say she has im proved, for how could she have asaoclated with such missionaries as Mr. and Mrs. Graham Lee of Core and Mrs. Wachter of Slam without being stimulated to greater desire to carry tbe gospel to every crea ture?" Mrs. E. E. Hammond reported for Michi gan in part as follows: "The annals of the Synodlcal society of Mlchigsn for the yesrs 1901-2 will be recorded as yeara of change, of anxiety, of experiment, and yet, thank God, of blessing and encouragement. The death of Mrs. Brownwell last June was followed In October by the resignation of Mrs. Bruske, our president for twenty yesrs, and as yet her successor has not been found. In its crippled condition our society has worked during the year and It Is largely owing to tbe faith of the Pres byterlal officers that, under God's bless ing, so much has been accomplished. Sag inaw, Flint and Lansing report Increases In membership or gifts or both. Kalamazoo and Lake Superior are thoroughly organ ized and doing fine work and each reports two new societies. Grand Rapids has dis tinguished herself by increasing her gifts and Detroit is doing a large share of the work faithfully." Mrs. Charles P. Luce of Indiana gave an encouraging report. She read: "As the people of old came up to Jeru salem for their annual teasta with Joy in their hearts, so we come to. this, our nine teenth annual meeting, with gladness. In diana's report I full of cheer and encour agement. It 1 Impossible to simmer the enthusiasm of eight Presbyterials, 170 aux iliary societies and 9,000 women Into a five-minute report. When we consider the great work being acompllshed by the six teen missionaries who are ouyrepresenta tlves upon the foreign field we cannot fall to be Inspired by thelt'sacrlflc and devo tion. 'V.;' - ' "As fact s re" necessary to secure funds, we are not surprised to learn that more magazines are taken tfian 'ever before and hence our treasurers are able to report In creased gifts. The amount contributed during the last year aggregate over $11, 000. At our synodlcal meeting held In In dianapolis laat October Mrs. Wells Inspired us all with a renewed sens of our per sonal responsibility as lndlvlduala In the great work of christianising the world, and as a state we are wakened a never before to the importance ' of ' personal consecra tion and effort. Tbe dominant strain of our annual report, which will sound throughout the coming year, will be, 'Glory to God In the highest and on earth peace, good will to all mankind.' " The forenoon program concluded with a short address by Mrs. L. C. Van Hook, who haa been a missionary to Persia. Be fore the adjournment a measage from O. W. Llnlnger, Inviting the delegates and missionaries to visit hi art gallery while In the city, was read. During the noon hour nearly 100 availed themselves of tbe Invitation. Sew Arrivals la Aftaraoon. Many new delegates and visitor arrived during yesterday forenoon and when the house waa cklled to order at 2 o'clock the attendance waa larger than at either of the previous session. The following delegates occupied seata upon the platform: Mrs. C. 8. Williams, Minnesota; Mrs. Earl C. Greenman. Illinois; Mra- N. W. Campbell, Illinois; Mrs. W. B. Jacobs. Illinois; Mrs. D. B. Wells. Illinois; Mlas Elizabeth Stew art, Illinois. These missionaries were seated upon the platform: Mrs. J. W. McKean, Laos; Miss Mary Jewett, Persia; Mrs. L. C. Vsn Hook, Persia. Telegrams of sympathy were sent to ths president of tbe board, Mr. Henry H. Forsyth of Chicago and Mrs. George W. Clabaugh, synodlcal president for Nebraaka, both of whom were unable, to attend the convention on account of Illness. Tbe first order of the afternoon program was "Young People's Hour." presided over by Mrs. Earl C. preensaan. One of the most Interesting features of this was a psper on "Boys," prepared by Mica Emma E. Koehler of Chicago and read by Mrs. O. L. Robinson.' It gave several good recipes tor interesting boys in mission work. Dr. Louise H. Keator of Illinois, mission. ary candidate for Indiana, read a paper on "Ghetto Work," based upon bar experience In Chlcsgo sweatshops. A trio comprising Mrs. C. K. Blake, harp; Miss Agnes Cahlll. violin, and Mrs. How ard Kennedy, organ, rendered "Ave Maria." Experience In India. Rev. J. N. Hyde, wno haa had experience as a missionary In India, delivered an ad dress In part as follows: "Whfcn Jesus stood that morning In Naz areth and spoke that very human message from laalah lxl, be touched a cord that responds the world over. Walking round an Indian village In the Punjab, the bead man of the village, a high cast Hindoo, Joined me and told me hi sorrow over he loss of his wife. I told him of ths comfort Jesus give and be said this comfort wss what drew him to Christ's teaching!. Sine 1890 the conference in India tor ths deep ening of the spiritual lite of missionaries snd Indian Christians have resulted la great good. They brought out the bible teaching about the tulneas of the spirit snd have purified the lives and empowered the service of very msoy. "The mission of different denaminations ars working In harmony with each other; the Presbyterian mission of Scotland. Eng land, Irelsnd. Canada and the In it ad Etates are forming one Presbyterian church in India: our churcbee have more Indian pas tors, and the whole mission work of India hss felt the bleaaing. Individual tnatanrat of this blessing are very striking The work of Mrs. Dr Frsnk Newton In Keraya pora la tbe Punjab la ens. Throuca tbe deep spiritual blessing given ker cams the hunger to be used more In God's service end the prayer for a woman's hospital to be built In Feroyepore. The prayer was heard and for six or seven years now tbe hospital, well equipped, has been In opera tion. Streams of good have flowed from It. as thousand of women have bad medical care, and aa one after another has been led to Christ from lives of sadness and sin end drunkenness and from homes of darkness aud cruelty." Secretary of I.lteratar. Mlas Mary L. Clark of Michigan read a paper on "What a Secretary of Literature Can Do." Here are a few of the para graphs: W'hen, shout five years ago. the office of literary secretary was new. there waa a very meagie IcU a of Its duties. Since thst time the work has broadened and Its op portunities have Increased marvelously. Care should be shown in choosing a suit able and efficient woman to nil the office, and she should be willing to devote much time and strength to her work. The aux iliary llteiature secretary should secjre subscribers for the woman's magnstnes, circulars, leaflets, from missionary reading circle. Interest the young people In mis sionary literature, urge systematic study of missions, especially the united studv of missions, wlt.n the Introductory textbook "Via Chrlstl." The presbyterlal literature secretary's work should be In advance of that of the auxiliary secretary. She should secure the appointment of this officer In each society, come Into touch with her under secretaries, visit societies, write personal letters, hold conferences. Investigate and advocate new methods of work, use huslnrsslike methods in the sale of literature at preebvtertal meetings and secure literature secretaries In churches where there are no missionary societies. Above all, she should be tactful, energetic and enthusiastic. Evening- Session. Last night's session drew an audience of such proportions that there was not a va cant seat In either the auditorium proper or the adjoining lecture room, which was thrown open for the occasion. Two addresses, which the general chair man afterward designated as the finest she hsd ever heard on mission work, were de livered by Prof. O. L. Robinson of the fee ulty of McCormlck Theological seminary, Chicago, and by Rev. Graham Lee, a grad uate or that Institution, who ha served long at Pyeng Yang, Corea. Rev. Edwin Hart Jenks of Omsha was the president of the evening and introduced the speaker. The music was as previously announced, with the addition of the solo, "Save Me, Oh God," sung by Ml?s Northrup. Letting I.laht Into Corea. Rev. Lee spoke first and aaid In part: I have come to bring you a message from the land that was once called the hermit nation. It la no longer so. When I went there eight years ago and began mission work at pyeng Yang there wasn't a Chris tlan other than ourselves in that vicinity. Now we have ll.ouu communicants and 19 congregations. At the beginning we were confronted by suspicion that was positively hostile, and one night we were surrounded by great crowds of Coreans and com manded to get out. We got! But I never yet saw a missionary who would give up, and wo went back again. Then the gov ernor of the province determined to oust us and made his attempt while our first little band of eight converts were with us at prayer. But we survived that, too, and then began our growth to the proportions of a church. At llrst we met In a cramped room, where they sat upon the floor and which was so crowded that aa an actual fact I may tell you that a man who got up to stretch himself couldn't find room to sit again. At first the women were crowded Into an adjoining room, where 2") of them used to sit in eager silence, anxious to hear told the old, old story of Christ as It was being related to the men. Woman's condition In Corea Is most pitiable. For the girls there are no schools except dancing schools, and after they become wlvea they have no name and practically no recognition. Once 1 was drawn to a house by screams and found a man with a club uplifted readv to strike or.e of two poor ignorant women who had been quarreling. My American blood rebelled at his cowardly act and I struck him where he stood. Other Faculties Than Eloquence. Let mi say to those who contemplate entering the mission field that all your practical faculties will be required even more than your eloquence. We built a church 3ux90, and I never shall forget what an ordeal It waa for me when 1 had to su perintend the construction and waa wholly unfamiliar with such work. And are the Coreana appreciative? Weil, upon the eve of our departure they brought ua gifts without number and their fare wells were tearful. They have come to prise the religion of Jesus Christ above all things else and are saddened by the loss of any who can tell them more of It greatness and glory. Rev. Lee also protested vigorously against the proposed 40 per cent reduc tion ot the appropriation and said that such action would have the effect of forcing the missionaries to give up all that they were using In the education of their own chil dren or for other personal need. Prof. Robinson gave a resume of the struggle of Christianity in heathen lnda and pointed to tb stars whose light has come forth to dispel the darkness of these places. Of these he named several heroes In the work, both old and modern, and then devoted most of tbe rest of hi lecture to the splendid part that women have played in the conversion of the world. He em phasized his thoughts under the three gen eral suggestions, leadership, loyalty and thanksgiving, but did not overlook tbe op portunity to point out the need of providing adequate Instruction In the mission field and reporting the progress that Is being made by the theological seminary. Today's program will be similar to that of yesterday, Including six synodlcal re ports, some general reports, missionary ad dresses concerning the work in Japan and Africa and finally a communion service this afternoon, conducted by Rev. T. V. Moore. Names Registered Yesterday. Below appear the names that were reg istered yesterday.
