Five ahort atorlea by Richard Harding
Davis have been grouped In a volume un
der the title of "Ranson'a Folly," the lead
ing story. The book Is finely Illustrated
with drawings by Frederic Remington,
Walter Appleton Clark, Howard Chandler
Christy and others and la published by
Charles Scrlbner's Sons of New Tork. The
title story Is the best thing in the book,
but two of the others are remarkable talta
that would make the reputation of an un
known writer. Although Mr. Davis made
bis first hit with a short atory, still bs
dors his finest work In a long novol !ik
"Soldiers of Fortune," In which there Is
space for the development of character and
the proper sequence of Incident. He bids
fair to equal, If not surpass, this novel In
the romance entitled "Captain Macklln,"
which Is now running as a aerial In Scrlb
"The Kindred of the Wild". la a new
book of animal life by Charles O. D. Rob
erts. In the Introduction the author gives
a brief sketch of the animal story from
Its origin in the engrossing part played In
the life drama of primitive man by the
beasts which he hunted and thoaa which
hunted him, through its development In
ths comradeship between man and bis
various animal pets to Its literary climax
In Mr. Kipling's "MowgU" stories and
Its psychological culmination in Mr.
Erneat Seton'a atory of "Krag, the Koote
nay Ram." Mr. Robert's latest work of
fiction makes a most interesting addition
to the slender stock of nature classics. Hs
pictures these dumb creaturea with such
a hand that one feels as they gain a bolter
knowledge a new sympathy for them. The
weasel is the only member of the animal
family for which Mr. Roberta haa no
sympathy, because It is the only one that
kills merely for the pleasure of killing.
He haa studied with close and unwearied
Interest the lives of the great eagle, the
lord of the air; the panther that rulea on
the Vpaalqultch, the luclfee, haunter of
the pine gloom; Kehonka, the wild goose,
and all the furred and feathered creatures
of the wilderness and the hunted traila.
In view of the great and growing intereat
la ths study of nature, seen through the
eyes of close observer and trained re
corders liks Mr. Roberts and reported
under ths guise of fiction, this will be a
book of sreat popular Intereat. Published

Wlldenbruch's "Dae Kdle Blut" has
been prepared by Charles A. Gggert for
the use of American atudenta of German.
Thla aimple and patbetlo story of German
cadet life haa been widely popular, both
from Its rara artistto merits and from Its
peculiar fitnesa for the classroom. In thla
edition apeclal care has been taken to
give fully the Idiomatic uses of those
words In the text which la their vartoua
appllcatlona are apt to perplex the atu
dent. Notea ar added sparingly, to ex-,
plain difficult expressions or construc

Is styled the "youngest but the greatest of

the oldest and grandest of all arts. This
remarkably comprehensive but concise
little volume is intended for the general
reader, who la enabled to follow the

This book, which (closes with a chapter on
Wagner, will prove deservedly popular,
because It affords an accurate general
view of the subject, and It meets an ac

"The One Before" is a broadly humorist
story by Barry Pain. It Is the story of a
magic ring, half gold, half bronze, and la
known as the "Sahib-l-dlrina," having the
property of endowing the actual wearer
with the character of the preceding wearer.
Of course it la only natural there ahouid
be a spirit of contagious humor through
out the book. For Instance, a highly or
thodox and otherwise respectable bishop
once slipped on the ring snd took to liquor
and played the races. The vagarlcw the
"Sahlb-l-dlrlna" brings about, the author
worka over to hla utmost power. Certain
curio dealers in London want to get the
ring, but are foiled in their attempts. Mr.
Ernest Saunders Farley la a first-class
crank and you are so glad when hia wlfn,
who weara the ring for a short time, sits
down on her idiotic husband. It la Indeed
a wonderful ring. Published by Scrlbner's
We' are In receipt of an excellent book of
verses of "Maine. Yankeelom," characters
by Holman F. Day, entitled "Pine Tree Bal
lads." It contalna the "Ballads of the
Banks" that excited so much attention when
they appeared In the Saturday Evening
Post of Philadelphia. These are dramatic
tales of the venturesome Oloucestermen,
stories of their quaint superstitions, em
bellished with some of the rough and rol
licking humor that develops even in the
mists and the dangers of the Grand Banks.
The new book also presenta more ballads
of the camp and drive, a field that la pe
culiarly Mr. Day's own, and in which he
baa preaented phases of life and action that
have appealed widely. A aectlon of the
book that la especially rich in humor is
that under the .caption "Our Oood Pre
varicators." A character typically New
England Is the rural Munchausen, who
spends houra of meditation In evolving tales
to astonish hia neighbors. Mr. Day haa
secured .hia stories at first hand from the
"Inventors." and their originality la atrik
lng. In his poems of home life In Maine
that appear In the new book Mr. Day haa
brought out those heart-interest traits that
appeal to all. whether city or country bred.
The new volume la published by Small, May

Not long ago a cable dispatch from Rome
to the American newspapers stated that In
the discussion between Judge Taft, civil
governor of the Philippines, and the com
mission appointed by the pope tot consider
the sale of the frlara' lands In tt Philip
pines, the article on "Civil Government in
the Philippines," written by Governor Taft
for the Outlook, and printed In that paper
n May 81, had been found,' so necessary
to an underatandlng of the issues involved
that It had been translated Into Italian, and
placed before the papal commlralonera. In
point of tact this article is unqueationably
the moat authoritative and elaborate state
ment of the work of Governor Taft and
hia commission In replacing military by
civil administration which haa been pub
lished. In view of its Importance the Out
look company Is about to reprint the ar
ticle In bookform. With It will appear the
appreciation and estimate of Judge Taft's
character and the reasons which led Presi

President Roosevelt a few weeks before his
accession to the presidency, and printed In

A number of brokers ar at ths county

county's loss, because It Is represented by
tho 7 per cent interest that is paid on a
warrant from the time It la registered at
the treaaurer'a office to the time It Is called
In and paid by the county. The Brat of the
warrants issued sines ths last levy may bs
paid within a month. It Is said, but others
are not expected to be called before the
February collection of personal taxes, so
that they will be drawing 7 per cent in
terest for a half year at least. Last year
between July 12 and August 1 general fund
warrants were drawn for $107,688.81, but
between July 24 and August 1 of this year
the total of $137,815.17 is reached, and It Is
thought that of the 6,001 that were drawn
at least 4.000, representing about $100,000,
have been given over to the peraona whose

$55,316.60. The salary sheet totals about
$5,000 per month, and If the board pursues
its former plan of retaining enough to pay
salaries this residue of $55,000 is already
practically gone, so that from thla time on
the only bills that can be paid are those
that may be met with the collection if
taxes delinquent la former yesrs. A mul
titude of thing are paid for out of ths
general fund. Including supplies, and from
this condition I have just mentioned It
surely Is to be concluded that warrants
ars to be plentiful before many months,
and ths interest Indebtedness . of the
county, which Is already larg enough, the
Lord knows, will go climbing still higher
at the) rats of 7 per cent. Of course, the
board could not have levied mors than 9
mills for the general fund, aa that I the
limit fixed by law, but It could have kept
up the levy for the road and bridge funds,
and then at the end of the fiscal year
transfer tha unexpended accumulations In
these funds to the gensral fund and give
us a better start for next year.
"Without wishing to detract on bit from
the splendid work dons by ths board and
the Real Estats exchange's tax committee
in boosting the assessment, I must say that
it seemed to me they were very short
sightsd in reducing the levy proportion
ately. I approached on member of the
commute on thia matter when he waa
pleading with the board for a lower county
levy (mind you, I'm not talking of the atato
levy), and reminded him that anxh
only shouldered the debt In growing pro
portions onto ruturs generatlona, but ho
answsred llghtlyi 'Well, that's all right:
my baby's a girl.' "

these patches ars very unsightly. Ths In
adequate system of ventilation which was

Missive Foand on Street Sets Then to

Maa Has Taken Hla
After his friends had mourned him as a
suicide and the police had searched the
city for hours for his corpse,' W. J. McNab,
a salesman in the employ of the Byrne A
Hammer company, returned home shortly
after 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, without
the oder of the graveyard upon him.
This letter found en th street Frldsy
morning is what led to the supposition of
Dear Brother Isaac: There Is one re-
?uet I wsnt to ask of you and that Is
or you to take my dear little son Malcolm
and ratse htm aa your own aon. I am
gone to b , and there la no uae of my
trying to be a man. I cannot. Harland

this 1 am gone. My life haa been one of
unhappinesa and I am tired of it. Don't
say anything to my dear sinter (your wife)
and keep everything to yourself. Your
loving brother, W. J. M'NAB.
Ths letter wss found by Ernest Wind
helm and turned over to Officer Russell,
who notified th police station. It wss
writtsn on a letterhead of th Windsor
hotel and was not dated. It was not en
closed In an envelope and was crumpled aa
though it had been doubled up and put In
the man's pocket.
Ths brother mentioned In it is Isaao
Tarrlck of Blus Rapids, Kan., who is a'
brotber-In-law of Mr. McNab.
It was learned that McNab had been
worried considerable lately about som
bills hs owed around town, and it was th
conclusion of his friends that he had fol
lowed out the intentions of ths 1st ter.
Ths pollc made a thorough search of ths
city, and until 2 o'clock found no trace of
ths missing man. It waa about that time
that he returned home.
McNab waa at the stors of th Byrne V
Hammer eompany at 7 o'clock, and until
his return home nothing further was seen
of him by the employes of ths company.
Mr. McNab and family havs resided la
Omaha for the last three years and lived
at 2603 North Nineteenth street. His fam
ily consists of a wits and two sons; one,
Harland, la employed by the Byrne aV Ham
mer company and the other, Malcolm, is
at prasent visiting his uncle, Isaao Tarrlck
of Blue Rapids, Kan., to whom ths Utter
wss addressed. Mr. McNab waa for som
time employed by Hayden Broa. and went
from their atore to the Byrne Hammer
company. Representatives of ths firm said
that h was an excellent salesman and waa
a man of splendid reputation among a large
circle of frlenda.
McNab haa offered no explanation of hla
conduct to hla friends and it Is their belief
that th letter was writtsn Thursday whll
hs was under th influence of liquor and
was latsr thrown away.
