"Bayou Trlste." by Josephine Hamilton
Nichols, Is a charming story of southern
life. The author Is the daughter of Chief
Justice, Nlcholls of the Louisiana supreme
court and Is thoroughly fsmlllar with her

the readers attention from first to last.
The time of the narrative Is since the war,
the scene being laid at Boutbmeade planta

betray themselves In drawing checks and
notes at hand, carefully. Indifferently, or
too precise. To women this volume Is more
than a pastime, in every particular, a serl-
