"The Sheep Stealers," by Violet Jscobs.
Is a story In which there are evidences of
the real nonius of a glory-teller, a master
riand In the art somewhat more than Is
expected of a novlre or one no entirely un
known In the Held of literature a Violet
Jarobs. The story opens with a Geserlp
tlon of the rural border lands of England
and Wales and a brief history of the
homely upersttons of the people whose
arant Ideas were scarcely beyond their
weekly round of work and tholr petty
atrlfes and quarrels. The farmers who
grated their herds On the mountain lands
suffered from an organized system of
marauding, and In those days of slow com
munication and Inefficient police service
they were unable to protect their Interests.
James Dumpett seemed to be chief In
"crooked business" In his psrticular sec
tion, and drew for assistance on those
whom necessity and misfortune had thrown
In his way. Of this number were Rhys
Walters and George Williams. Rhys Wal
lers from early childhood was a poacher
no outdoor rascality entered his head that
he did not attempt to exploit. After leav
ing school with a veneer of learning, which,
however, did not affect his character, he
makes his bow In the flHfl of Illegalities at
the head of a devastating horde known as
"Rebecca and her Children." Their object
was the destruction of toll gatea'ln Justi
fication of an unsatisfactory road govern
ment. The name of the band was taken
from the Old Testament text In which Re
becca, Vho bride of Isaac, was blessed by
La ban In these words, "Let thy seed pos
sess the gates of those that hate them."

"A Plea for Hardy Plants," by J. Wilkin
aon Elliott, who la a landscape architect
of great experience and has been fighting
the battle of permanence and variety. He
argues ;for our native asters, lilies, holly
hocks and the hundreds of other beautiful
plants that make Europeans exclaim In as
tonishment at the richness of our flora; and
he adds to this ample provision the best
hardy plants from all over the world. This
simple plea based on observation,, skill and
experience Is enforced to the reader by
many photographic illustrations showing
what" can be done with hard plants under
proper treatment. Published by Doubleday,

"The New Christians," by Percy White, Is
novel tn which Eustace Fenner, with his
pathetic eyea, his beautifully curved mouth
and hla eloquent tongue, attracts admirers.
Among them Is Mrs. Galbralth, a rich
widow. Eustace loves beautiful material
things and ho loves ease and all that makes
life luxurious. .It Is this material love that
gets him financially under obligation to a
rival, Mr. Cranly, the possessor of the
"Healing Stones of St. Peter." Eustace's
craftiness tn playing double with Cranly
and with his followers Is cleverly haudled.
The bird-headed dissenter, Mr. Selhy, who
trips up the pretender now and then, Is sn
excellent piece of characterisation. Eus
tace's double love making adds Interest to
the plot. Published by the Federal Book
