THE SATURDAY MRNII0 OOURIKH
'Joseph Znltmmnh," liy Edward KIhk,
presents Ronio vivid pictured of tlio dark

Jb. And the awful mlnory and despora
tlon of tlio uuoniployed! These nro not
overdrawn in tlio HtlrrlnK chapters ot
"Joseph Zulinonuh." Only hint week a
New York paper contained an account
of thedifitroHtt anions tlio Hebrew cloak
inakero that reads like a chapter out of
Mr. King's book. Tlio following Ih an
extract frorti a re)ort of a meeting of the
unemployed held a few ilujH ago:
"Talk about tho Hebrew riots," con
tinned tlio speaker. "Tho congressmen
who inako tho laws would inako more

money. What him Huron Hirsch done
"Nothing! Nothing!" said tho audi
enco. "Ho has given somomilliousof dollars,
and and nobod) knows who has it. Wo
haven't. Tho American law punishes
us if wo commit suicide, but it lots us
fltarvo to death. You can starve accord
ing to law. If you tako a loaf out of a
fltoro you aro a thief."
"A thief! a thief!" shouted tho audi
ence. Hero attention was drawn to Kniuiu
Goldman. Sho appeared to bo able to
breatho tho frightful atmosphere in
comfort, and looked quite cool.
"If you aro hungry go and get bread,"
eho said. "Tako it it no one will give it
to you. Join tho demonstration of the
unemployed, under the black flag."
Sho paused a moment, and then
"Tho black ilag. I sny! Lot thut bo
your banner in tlio hunger parade."
Joseph Zalmonah is a leader of his
people, who tries peaceful methods for
obtaining relief, while most of those
around him are inciting to anaicliy.
Around tho sombre llguro of tho self
sacrificing labor-leader aro grouped
many interesting ones David, the
purveyor of historical plays, lien Zion,
tho old und humorous little peddler, who
fancies himself also a leader of people,
Mordccal, tho singer of popular ballads
and tho oot of tho people, Freier, tho
typical oppressor, Munassch, the old
orthodox Jew who has come too lato to
a world too now; and others of less Im
portance will all fix tho reader's attcn.
tion and stand for representative types.

Nathan Haskoll Dole departs u long
way from tho conventional lines of novel
writers in his latest book, "Not Angels
Quito." His plot is simple enough,
tho untangling of a pair of engaged
couples and u readjustment oil a basis
of natural fitness, but the treatment is
decidedly novel and clover. Tho charac
ters stand forth like silhouettes, so dis
tinctly aro thoy drawn, and tho scenes
aro "impressionist" pictures.
Aside from tho interest of tlio story,
the reader will bo entertained by tho
glimpses of tho social institutions and
lads pf Boston. Tlio city is sorved up

Tho heroine is (naturally) a flno wo

Tho latest addition to Dodd, Mead &
Co.'s "Makers of America" series is a
lifo of Thomas JefTerson by James
Schouler, author of "History of the
United States Under tho Constitution."
Tho career of tho great Virginian is
sketched with grcut lldelity, and withal
in a manner that is distinctly attractive.
JefTerson as a farmer, as a lawyer, as a
statesman, is depicted with cleverness
and precision. There is an occasional
side light on contemjiorury Virginia lifo
-a period fruitful in great characters,
and an intelligent summing up of coinci
dent events. Mr. Sehouler's sketch of
JelTcrson Is a valuable contribution to a
most important series. For sale by W.
"Phlneas Finn," by Anthony Trollopo,
Is a thoroughly enjoyable novel. Phlneas
Is a young Irishman who enters parlia
ment and In a few yearB becomes under
secretary and approaches very near to
real gieutness, only to abandon his politi
cal career before ho is barely in his
thirties to settle down in Ireland as In
spector of poor houses, because ho ro.
fuses to surrender his convictions, and
because ho has married Mary Jones, who
is a dear, good llttlo girl, but who 1b not
at all suited to associate with dukes and
duchesses, prime ministers and lords mid
ladles, as lib has been in tho habit of
doing. Phineas is very real, with his
good impulses and his weaknesses. Ho
is a hero who Is not all nobility, like so
many heroes. Ho does a number of
fooli h things. Ho falls in love alto
gether too frequently. To bo sure ho
goes back in the end to Mary Jones, his
tTrst and humblest love, but only after
ho has laid vain siege to tho daughter of
an earl and to u beautiful heiress. Tho
glimpses of English political and social
lifo are interesting; tho characters aro
deftly drawn, and Mr. Trollopo'B style,
which perhaps now and then too closely
approaches the vernacular, is in tlio
whole pleasing. "Phlneas Finn" is pub
lished in three pretty llttlo volumes by
Dodd, Mead & Co.; for sale by H. W.
Will tho Elsio books ever como to an

to present you with n gilt edged Bible

good ninny squares and Anally turned into
n doorway nud ascended n (light of stairs
and entered n small room. There were five
Bibles piled up on a counter Just such
Bibles as my friend had described. He or
dered n narrow minded young mnn to put
ono of them hi n box nnd nddress it to mo,
charges prepaid. I was expressing my
thanks in n broken voice when a sad faced
young mnn called our attention to the fact
that lio was nn agent for a Cubnn lottery,
nud that ho would bo rejoiced to see us hit
tho corporation for about (30,000. I thought
It real kind of lilm to express himself in
Mint wny, nnd I frankly told him so. That
seemed to please him, nnd after that. I
think ho leave mo his full confidence.
The dear friend who had brought me to
the Bible house didn't seem to take any in
terest In hitting ttO.OOO. in that lottery
Mint is, ho didn't for tho first few minutes.
It was only after tho sud faced young man
bad explained bow much good we could ac
complish in the nnme of charity with such
a sum of money Mint he threw oil hi
mantle of Indifference nnd took mo nslde
for a private talk. Ho said wo hud struck
a soft snap and that It would be almost
criminal on our part not to take advan
tage of It. His half of what wo struck
would bo turned over ton Chicago hospltnl,
while I might do as I liked with mine,
though I would probably remember the
orphans of New York in a liberal manner.
I believe wo bought $100 worth of tickets.
I think tho Idea was to hit nil the prizes In
tho lottery nt once and bankrupt the whole
Island of Cuba. Then we put up SJ50 apiece
to prove to the sud faced young mnn thut
wo were financially responsible for some
thing or other. My friend seemed to know
Just what to do, nnd I let him mnuage the
business. There was a drawing. It was a
drawing without any great amount of cere
mony connected with it. We didn't hit
anything. The inanuger was wirry for us
nnd suggested another trial. We somehow
