TITF. OMAHA DAILY BEE: FRIDAY. DECEMBER S, 1003.
Tha December issue of Talrs presents a
remark ablo collection of stories from tha
best llvlnir authors the world over. Of the
eight laimuajtM represented Russian hag
the, largest share, with a complete novel,
"Children." by Nlcolal Teleshov. and short
stories by( MaxJm Gorky and Schedrln.
The duchess of frrlborouRh' portrait
produced by a process hitherto unattempted
In rrmgnslria literature, appears In the De
rember Jesiie of the Smart Set as a frontis
piece distinctive new feature. This Is
the first series of new portraits of women
rilfttlnriilKhi-d as leaders of society In the
metropolitan oitlrs of the world to be
published monthly .In. this enterprising
Vp to date njid timely as usual are the
.contents of the World Today for Decem
ber, with a remarkable number of good
Illustrations for a lO.rent magazine. Right
to the point Is the article entitled "The
Responsibilities of Insurance Officials." by
W. D. Vsnfllvcr. state superintendent of
Insurance for Missouri. The writer does
not mince matters, but calls a spade a
"The InrfinVrenre of Juliet," by Oraee P.
Richmond, affords Interesting and entertain'
lng reading. Anthony Robeson Is an ener
getic and ambitious young man. who. al
though accustomed to the blessings of
wealth, puts Ms shoulder to the wheel when
the death of his father, followed by the loss
of their fortune, makes It necessary. After
live years of rncrget- work he determines
to have a heme of his own, but he Is un
able to win the promise of Jnllet Marcy to
become Ms wife. On the theory that "All's
fair In love," he selects a little "bog of a
house" in the suburbs, whose possibilities,
as well as cheapness, appeal to him. After
his own labor has made great improve
ments, he invites Juliet to assist him In
furnishing the house for his prospective
wife. His allowance for furnishings Is
limited, and It takes some planning and
scheming to make the most of It. but by
the time It Is completed Juliet realizes that
she really does care. Just as Anthony had
hoped. Their contrivances, plana and man
agement to make the "box of a house" a
delightful home on their modest Income and
an attractive spot for their fa-lends Is very
Interestingly told. Although he book does
not seem to be written for the special pur
pose of pointing a morak It offers many
suggestions as to wha may be accom
plished with true love and a modest In
come, and It Is a book which young men as
well an young women will enjoy. Double
day,' Page & Co. are the publishers.
"Jules of the Oreat Heart," by Lawrence
Mott, Is a story of the great Canadian
wilderness, which is a world unto Itself
a world of vast silences, of stinging winter
storms and mysterious -summer beauty; a
world where the primitive Instincts and
passions rule. Jules Verbaux is a French
Canadian trapper, a aort of modern Robin
Hood, considered an outlaw by the Hudson
Ray company and treated accordingly.
Slyer than the fox. brave as tha lion, light
hearted and passionate like his kind, it Is
not to be wondered that he Is forever plung
ing Into adventure, now .eluding the venge
ance of .a company, official, new. the fierce
onslaught of a half-breed trapper, and now
battling with the fury of a winter atorm.
We are eagerly one. with Jules In hla wild,
fascinating life; his adventure, htf sorrow,
his heart-sickness; and with tha last page
we echo Jule s explanation. hl .vfogejJhce
satisfied, hla love restored, "Je sula con
tent." ,The Century company are the pub
lishers. "Wilderness Babies," .by Julia A.
Schwartz, have met with such favorable
shU3 that the publisher have already
ordered a third Impression of the regular
edition, and a new edition for use In tha
schools will be Issued after the holidays.
."Ben Pepper." by Margaret Sidney,
the tenth volume 'of' Ilia' famous' "Pepper
Books,;1 has. Just bc-sn published by Loth
rop. Lee, & 8hepard company. The six
Illustrations are by Eugene M. Wlreman.
"Reading the 'Pepper Books' la Just like
having the fun yourself, " Is the unique
expression of a girl of 12 after reading
these famous books, and no one has ever
bolter expressed the true secret of the
charm , and enormous popularity of tbia
series, the tenth volume of which, "Ben
Pepper." Is now ready. Other members
of the family have had books named alter
tlietn, and it was only fair that Ben, the
"quiet, ateady-aa-a-rock boy," ehould have
similar attention. Surely no one of the
family was better worthy of a book to
himself. Ben's resolute, unselfish charao
Ur is finely brought out, and there are
good tlmea and good actions without num
ber. No one of the hosts of readers of
the "Pepper Books" will long be willing
to lie without this excellent addition to
' Told by Uncle ftemua" la the title of
Joel Chandler Harris' new volume of
Uncle 'Remus atorlea. This collection of
negro folklore tales has the same ly,
chuckling humor that made the first book
popular with old and young readers.
The genial author, when he was asked to
write more Uncle Remus stories, replied
with bis characteristic modesty: . "Do you
really think that people want to hear any
more from old Uncle Remus T" Thera la
no doubt of the answer to the queatlon
being distinctly In the affirmative; and
reader of the present volume, when they
make or renew their acquaintance with
cunning Brer Rabbit, sly Brer Fox. astute
Brer Wolf, contented Sis Cow. and all the
remainder of the amusing troupe, will be
glad that Mr. Harris was persuaded that
Mr. and Mrs. General Publio and the 11 1
Ua General Publicses did have an Interest
In more Uncle Remua tales. There are
full-page and Incidental illustrations by
Frost. Conda and Verbeck. which add much
to the humor of the narratives. Mc-Clure,
Phillips & Company are publishers.
