In thla romance the author tells of the

In academlo pursuits and somewhat con

In love with a girl on the brink of life's
deeper experiences, a girl who, unknown
to him, enshrines his im&g&Jn her heart.
The deepening of llfes meaning, tho dls
pelting of doubt and the solidifying of
faith that como through love, not un

rare grasp of the constructive purpose
of things. Tho background of the story

THE MAIN ROAD. By Maude Radford
Warren. 391 Pp. IL35. Harper & Bros.
This story roveals the wonderful Itiner
ary of a woman's Journey from sentl
mentallsm to passion, showing the broad
highroad on which she started, confident
of arriving quickly at a goal, the blind
alleys where her inexperience led her,
the long and weary detours she had to
make. But there are pictured also the
bright spots where ahe found happiness,
the companionship ot friends and the
glory at the Journey's end. Intimate
scenes Introduce us to her In her Wiscon
sin home surroundings.

In her new story the winner of the
English prize novel turns to a century
with the history of which she Is
thouroughly Imbued and the scenes of
which are to her a familiar landscape.
It Is a tale of love and adventure, the
scene of which begins In Ireland and ends
In northern Germany, The time la the
last half of the eighteenth century. The
action of the story Is swift and moving,
the picturesque atmosphere by manner
and speech la at all times well sustained
and the characters bear themselves with
gallantry and fortitude.
TH N'BIV, STANDARD DICTIONARY.
The Fi.nk & S agnails company. New
The new Standard Dictionary In Its
one-olume form is a huge book contain
ing nearly 3.00) pages and full from
cover to cover of the most varied In
formation, sifted and winnowed until only
the pure grain of lexicography Is left
Ivest this metaphor prove misleading,
however, let It be said that tho new
Standard is by no means a mere word
book. It has. Indeed, departed In Its new
form from traditional dictionary making
by Including biographical and geograph
ical names In Its main vocabulary, thus
greatly adding to tho convenience ot ref
erence. This feature, making the dic
tionary practically an encyclopedia. Is the
most radical Innovation that has bean In
troduced In the present edition. The
main features of the original Standard
dictionary have beon followed in tho new
work, but many Improvements have becu
made, Including certain changes tending
to the reflection of usage rathe than to
the establishing of new standards us in
the syllabication of words. The vocabu
lary now Includes 450,000 terms as against
tho 301,000 of the first edIUon, showing
not only the growth ot the language In
the twenty yearn since the Standard dic
tionary fjrat appeared, but tho steady
advance In the science of dictionary mak
Ing. To those who are familiar with the
merits of the original edition no praise
is needed for the new Standard; those
who first make the acquaintance of thla
dictionary through its new edition will
aoon become Its fast friends.

And yet much of Rtley'a beat work and
some of his most humanly Interesting
I lines were written In the days when the
public and the editors of the various
Indiana newspapers did not appreciate
1 Riley. In order to sell some of his verse
I he assumed anonymnu names, and In
various newspapers, from coast to coast.
:ln the early seventies and eighties, there
appeared some of Riley's best verse un

la that It Is the story of political events
for nearly a third of a century aa re
flected on th a editorial page ot a groat

sets forth the alms, ambitions, purpoies
and programs of Joseph Pulitzer as the

achievements and failures In working
toward thla goal. Nowhere that we know

FAMILIAR SPANISH TRAVELS. By

Mr, Howella, whose love for Spain
dates from boyhood reading of "Don
Quixote," gives vent In thla new book
of travels to hta enthuMaam for the
scenery, people and architecture ot that,
country, which he visited only a short
time ago. He notes the beauty ot the
womon, the politeness of tho men, the
children's favorite game of bull-flghtlng.
Spanish art of the Padro and the Es
corlol period Is touched upon with the
criticism ot the cultured amateur; and at
the ahrino of Cervantes ho pays the trib
ute ot a fellow-craftsniiin. And back of
all thla living present Is the romantlo
history of Spain' past, with all Its glory

ON BOARD THE GOOD SHIP EARTIL
By Herbert Quick. U.S. Bobbs-Merrlll
Most of us, in our everyday life, have
cur noses so close 16 things we are doing
that our range of vision of life la necea
sarily narrow. In thla nge ot specialists,
men of ability are apt to take aome one
narrow phase of life and expose It, aa
through a microscope. Mr Quick's view
Is a telescopic one, and he has succeeded
In getUng a broad, comprehensive picture
ot things in a most Interesting way, with
a keen philosophy of life beneath It all.
Moro than ordinal y Interest attaches to
this book locally, as Mr. Quick recently
was a resident ot Omaha for a year.
TO BUILD MOUNTAIN ROADS
Cougrr.. May, Grant Million Dollars'
Worth of Land to Kiabt
Eight of the Rocky mountain atates
will have $l,00CO0O apiece to spend on
constructing and malnalnln.? public
roads, If a bill which has been suggested
by the Interior department Is enacted
The method by which tho 11,000,000 would
be raised would be from the sole ot 33).O0O
acres of public Jand, whleh It Is proposed
that congress grant to Arizona, Colo
rado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico,
I'tah and Wyoming, to be sold or leased
by land boards and governors of the
respective states at not less than ! at.
acre. This bill la offered as a aubstltute,
for several bills which have been Intro
duced In congress providing fpr the gos
frnmenfa assistance In road building by
the grant of lands.
Road construction In tho Rocky moun
tain states Is difficult and expanalve by
reason of the roughness of the country,
the torrential rains at some seasons gf
the year, and the lack of sufficient
moisture to lay the dust and solidify
the top soil during other seasons. U
federal assistance Is to be extended to
road construction, the Interior depart
ment believes It should be undertaken In
the Rocky mountain states In the form
ot grants of land,- which may be sold
to homesteaders and the proceeds de
voted to the construction and mainten
ance ot roads. The idea of giving (and
for this purpose Is not entirely new, for
as early aa 1802 both land and money
were donated by congress to build high,
The Rocky mountain , states are with-,
out highway facilities ot older and ,ori
populoua communities. A well planned
system ot roads In thesestates would, It
Is felt, materially -aid In the settlement
of the remaining publlo land therein.
The grant of 350,000 acres ot land ta
any of the eight Rocky mountain atatea
mentioned would be taking only a small
part of the total amount ot public land
within this group of states, all ot which
contain 17,000,000 to 39,000,000 acres of sur
veyed and unsurveyed land which ta
If congreas should enact a law for
such a grant, the building ot roads
would assist in opening thousands of
miles ot country which is now Inacces
sible or partially Inaccessible, and with
the road Work now going on within the
national forests In all western atatea,
would contribute, much to the general
prospertty.-New York Times,
