Aimlce's fcr March an Autobiographical

AUTHORS AND ARTISTS BY LILLIAN BELL
The IIomenalMers" Is an Interesting
Btady of a l.arirr Colon? of Poles
in Oar of Ihr threat Amer
Alnslee's for March open with a novel
ette whlrh takes the Hhape of autobiograph
ical notes by 11 m l"ty slti which tolls c if
her experiences from tho time she wan 15
years of age to the time of her engage
ment. It In original and dramatic and,
what Is more Important, InteroHtlng. It I
called "Miss Vanity." edited by Mary
Hamilton Park. Maarten Maartcns has
one of his characteristic talcs called '"Flvs
Minutes' Conversation." "Her Letters frwrn
Dakota" deals with a timely theme In. an
extremely taking fashion. It Is by Miriam
Mlchelson. author of "In the Hlshop's Car
riage." The accond of the series, "Stories
of the Street," by James II. Gannon, Is
called "The Matrimony Syndicate." Roy
Hornlmon has an Intensely Interesting; and
dramatic story called "The Wits of Basil
Wynyard." An unusually humorous tale Is
"The Undoing of Ulyssi I'pdegraff,"' by
W. I. Nesblt. Tallinn Hell has a Brood story
of the difficulties of authors and artists
In New York called "The Price of Quiet."
E. Nesblt, who has so often delighted Alns
lee's readers In the past year, has another
story called "The Duel," whlrh has all the
fascinating features of her previous work,
together with more than usual strength.
"A Ghost," by Juliet Wllbor Tompkins, is
an unusual story, with good action and a
dramatic climax. Edgar Baltus appears
again with one of his characteristically
crisp, epigrammatic essays entitled "In and
Out of Court Circles." "The Diary of a
Society Parasite," by OeraJdlne Honner, Is
exactly what Its title Indicates, but with a
touch of the better side of human nature
that redeems It from cynicism. Acton
Davles has another Interesting article on
"The Housebuilders," by Karl Edwin
Harrlmon, published George Jacobs
company. Is not only an entertaining vol
ume of Action, but an Interesting study of
an interesting people, who constitute a
large colony In one of our great American
cities. The Polo Is little appreciated, be
cause he Is little understood, but Mr. llar
rlman has lived nmong the Toles, knows
them Intimately and is known by them,
and Is perhaps better qualified to tell their
stories than any othor American writer.
There are tales of pathos and tales of
humor, but the strong note of them all Is
the almost perfect assimilation of the Pole
by this country. The stories are eight In
number and are correlated, In which
measure they have the value of a novel
so fur as Interest is concerned and an added
value Is that phases of the character are
perhaps better treated In ahort-story form
than In a continuous story. Being a socio
.logical study, the volume postiesses a defi
nite value above that of a book devised for
mere entertainment, and it would seem
that at this time, when the vital Interest
of all America Is in the man who tolls,
and particularly In the man from Europe,
this book should make a place for Itself
among book of fiction.
Qlnn tt Co, have recently published a
revised edition of "Mtdlaeval and Modern
History," by Fhlllp Van Neas. The edition
appears In two parts the first part en
titled "The Middle Ages" and the second
"The Modern Age." The unusual merit of
the original work has been attested by the
growing favor which 'It has met during the
fifteen years since Its first publication. In
the forthcoming edition the ventral per
spective of the work la not essentially
modified, but the emphasis n places la
slightly shifted and the narrative of events
brought up to the present time. The aeries
of maps Is augmented by addition of new
and valuable charts and each chapter is
supplemented by lists of books tor reference
and further reading.
The Diversions of a Book Ixwer." by
Adrian II. Jollne, author of the "Medita
tions of An Autograph Collector," is com
posed of the most interesting talk about
books, authors, book collectors, their frlendu
and their foea, fine bindings, odd and curi
ous editions of sundry works, apt quota
tions from little known authors, and num bers
of anecdotes and stories of interesting
people. "If you set a book colleotor going
you mar never be sure when he will run
down and cease to chatter," says Mr.
Jollne. But In. this case the chatter la so
kindly and Instructive, so enlivened with
anecdotes and stories, that the reader Is
only sorry when Mr. Jollne "run down."
Published, by Harpers.
In "American Maaters of Sculpture," by
Charles H. Caffln, author of "American
Masters of Painting." Mr. Caffln has at
tempted to do for our sculpture what his
successful former volume accomplished foi
painting, and he writes with Ills usual
vigor and clearness of the great American
llgures in this art. Among the sculptors
treated in special chapters are Bt. Quudeng,
. Macmonnles, Ward, liurtlett, French,
Horglum, Adams, Brenner, Warner, Nle
taaus and Barnard, while the author also
lives a summary of the progress of sculp
ture In America and a resume of the pres
ent situation, with the outlook for the fu
ture. Published by IJoubliduy, Page & Co.
