Concluding, he raid:
'.It was to determine whether man had
progressed far enough on the road to

reached that advanced ground where s
government dedicated to human liberty
and founded upon the rights of man
could endure. There are. -timid souls to

govern themselves and who, unmindful
of the lessons of this great conflict, ate
demanding a government 'too strong for
tha complete liberty of Ua people.' '
Mentions Present War.
In speaking of the European conflict.
he said:- "Individual neutrality Is Im
possible. The activities of the human j
mind, the passions of the human heart
cannot be dctroyed at the word of com- I
mand. But such activity, such passions.

DAVID GRAHAM PHILLIPS
author of Old Wivtt and New," "Thu'Crain of Durt,"
"7ns rfes Shm PaiJ." Etc., Etc. s ,
"And Jesus said unto her, Woman, hath no man condemned
thee? Neither do I condemn .thec: go, and sin no more."
This text inspired the writing of ; David Graham Phillips' greatest novel,
1 his Itprw
Uqv Fall asid Jilse"
Dr. CHARLES H. PARKHMRST, tho famous clergyman, says:
"This great novel, hav'nq ra It In manuscript, Its spirit and purpose have not passed from
my memory. . ... ...
"The heroine is depicted as an llltoltlmate child, and the purpose ol the fiction Is to show the
blight that attaches to Inntr .ent Vltlmacy. "
- .,... , . . . . ... . . . .
"The treatment veccrded her by her kindred, who by ordination of nature ought to have protected
and cherished her, illustrates In a yraphio way the vicious tendency Imminent in human nature to
think the worst of people rathr than the best. .!'.'..
. , ' ' ' . ' . ...
11 It Is one of those fictions that has a meaning, the only kind of fiction that moral and Intelli
gent poople have any r'ght to spend 'Selr time over or give their thought to."
To this most startling Amor lean novel ever
written, David Graham Philips devoted six
years of his life. Today, four years after his
death by assassination, this, his greatest
work is given to the, public in Hearst's
, Magazine. ' ; ' L 1 '
A million fathers and rhothers'will sec this story, and read the
lessons in it. - -.
. v .Deeply they yill sympathize with the child unhappily born, and
rejoice that they can protect as she was not protected, those within
their care. , - ' ;
In Susan Lenox. David Graham Phillips shows with all of his
. courage and power the story of life as it is.
A girl beautiful,' intelligent, unhappily born, chrsed with the
cruel stigma of illegitimacy, fiehts against the world.
Phillips tells of her journeys down the hill, the cruel selfishness
of relations; pushing their own daughter ahead of her.
1 The marriage forced upon an inexperienced child. ' v
The horrible revelations of what false marriage really is.
The curse of a union without love on the woman's part, with
out refinement or kindness on the part of the husband. . .
The flight of the girl hating immoral marriage more than any
risk in life. - v
Then the story that the public will read with breathless interest,
the hard struggle, against hunger, cold, anxiety, and the last, worse
dangerBthat threatens every helpless woman.
It is indeed as Dr. Parkhurst says, fiction "that has a meaning,
the ONLY KIND OF FICTION THAT MORAL INTELLI
GENT PEOPLE SHOULD READ."
With his extraordinary power fully developed, David Graham
Phillips tells of the fall that could not be avoided, and then of the
spirit conquering, of the rise of the soul, the end of a struggle.
The story of Susan Lenox, is th story of cruelty inflicted by
cold civilization upon helpless girls; ,
It is a story of beauty as "well as bt horror. '
It is a lesson in powerful literary work, a lesson of true moral
teaching. . . .
Many a man who reads it, many, a man who feels within himself
part of the guilt that pushed Susan Lenox down the road, will feel as
those men felt in the ancient days, when "Jesus atooped down, and
with his finger wrote upon the ground, ? though he heard them not."
Many realizing in Phillips' powerful, vivid teaching, how de
fenceless is woman cur6edby msn's brutality will wish that they
might slink away from their"bwn past, as "they which heard it, being
convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning
at the eldest, even unto the last." '
No story but this wonderful narrative of the fall and the rise of
a beautiful, unhappy spirit, will ;c discussed in this country, as long
as the reading of the story lasts. :
A bad start,
