Judge Tourgee of North Carolina,
the famous author of "A Fool' Er
rand," and "Bricks without Straw,"
haB added to bis series of striking his
torical studies, another work, entitled
"A Royal Gentleman."
When we consider that in a little
more than one year, hundreds of thou
sands of volumes of this author have
been put in circulation among the
reading and thinking people of Amer
ica books dealing with the deepest
and most important problems of our
national life, and yet popular, we
know that the anthor must be making
a profound impression upon his day.
There is scarce an instance in literary
history of so sudden a rise to bo proud
"Undoubtedly the chief of American
writers." Troy Sentinel.
"Judge Tourgee writes books that
make people think." N. T. Sun.
"A picturesque, vivid, and passionate
story and there is that in it which will
attract the most cultivated and fastidi
ous ." Cincinnati Times.
"One rises from its perusal with a men
tal impression akin to that received from
the performance of a tragic opera." Cul
tivator and Country Gentleman.
Judged by the sale of his books,
which has been the most rapid in the
history of book publishing, Judge
Tourgee stands to-day the most popu
lar of American writers. A book
from bis graphic pen is therefore a
great literary event.
It is safe to say that all who have
read "A Fool's Errand" will desireUo
read "A Royal Gentleman ;" and as it
is to be sold exclusively by subscrip
tion, thousands will welcome the com
ing of the canvasser. The book con
tains 534 pages, and is handsomely
illustrated with full page engravings.

E. A. Gkrraku, P. M.,
Memory of our Little Daisy,
Daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Closed are the eyes so bright.
Extinguished ia our household light,
Another heart has ceased to beat;
And sealed are the little lips
That spake in baby accents sweet.
We listen for the childish voice,
We long to bear the merry noise,
And once more feel the gentle touch
Of tne dear little lingers soft.
We mis them, Oh! so much.
In the dark and dreary tomb
The casket lies 'mid the gloom.
While we our boundless loss deplore.
Yet one thought gives us peace
Our darling's saved for evermore.
