THE LOOK OP EAGLES. By John Talntor
Foote. New York. JD. Appleton & Co.
- 50 cento. ' .
Do you want a real horse story.
This is one It is short, but every
line and every paragraph breathes
forth such love for horses and such
knowledge of them that one's interest
is held most steadily to the very end
and the only regret one feels is that
the story is so short. There is also
a little pathos connected with the
young race horse who never won the
glory that was meant for him, on ac
count of his "look of eagles," because
he ran the race of his life
master on his back to fetch
tor for the beloved mistress
spite of the sacrifice, died,
young horse, with strained
and with the small bones in
broken, was able only to be
ther of noted racers.
BALLADS AND LYRICS. By Eldredse
Dentson. Boaton. , feherman French 4
Co. 51.26. . ' '
A book of poems by one who sings
for the very joy of it. Sincerity of
poetic feeling combines with marked
skill and rhyme and rythym to ex
press and interpret in genuinely po
etic form the poet's moods and fan
cies. There is no attempt at intricate
verse forms, no involved imagery or
striving after bizarre effects, and
nothing of the "near-shocking."
THE HOUSE ON THE HILL. By Frederick

The contents of this volume are

be declared a book of ougs. The

THE RISING TIDE. By Margaret Deland.
New York. Harper & Bros. 11.35.
This is the story of a very modern
young woman in revolt against th re
strictions which bound woman in the
past. Imbued with an extremely frank
and truthful nature, she sometimes
unintcntially offends, but her natu
rally sweet, frank nature triumphs in
the' end. Believing in woman's suf
frage and the rights of women to be
free to do as men do, she makes the
proposal of marriage and is rejected,
but in the end finds possibly a bet
ter fate than the one that had seemed
all to be desired. -

THE IMPOSSIBLE MRS. BELLEW.
, Stokee Company.. 91.80,
Is a woman, having once strayed,
right to accept the- Jove-of a good
man and her chance for happiness or
must her past and the world's judg
ment keep her down forever. This
much-discussed question forms the
basis of this extremely interesting
novel, the scene of which is laid in
Monte Carlo, and the heroine, Mrs.
Bellew, a lovely and lovable charac
ter, who has been indiscreet, but who
has great possibilities for good, which
are discovered by the beautiful char
acter, Dr. Helstan, father of the man
who finds that, having loved her
when he- thought her an innocent
young woman, finds that even after
hearing her story he is unable to give
her up. -The climax, showing great
sacrifice on the part of the herome
and described in a heart-touching way,
will be found of exceeding interest
and the ending is all that could be
hoped for. Drop in at Mathews Book

THE GIRL AT BIG LOON POST. By
George Van Schalck. ' Boston. Small.
Uaynard 4 Co. fl.Ii.
A deeply moving story of great
north woods, of life and love at a
Hudson Bay trading post of chi
canery and intrigue of bravery and de
votion. The author knows his coun
try and few riters can compete with
him as a story teller in his chosen
field. Like his previous books, the
new novel is marked by an unaffect
ed sincerity which adds zest to the
reader's pleasure. It is a remarkable
story of sincere love between two
people of entirely different race
the white man and the Indian maiden.
THE VAN HAAVENS. By C. Hilton- Tur
vey. Boaton. Small, Maynard A Co.
11.36. . i .
This might be Called the story of
a family. The elder Van Haavens
would have spoken of the family and
would have allowed modern life1 to
engulf them even while they resented
its encroachments. On the shoul
ders of young Willoughby Van Haa
vens fell all the burden of sustain
ing the family in its struggles with
the world and the story of his fight
is inspiring. The book is a novel in
the best sense of that much abused
word; it is many-sided in its presen
tation of human nature and the au
thor's insight into life stimulates the
reader's interest to the ultimate sat
isfaction, unforced enthusiasm and

song, made up her mind to give up
love or to make money herself. .
TEN BEAUTIFUL TEARS! By Mary
Knight Potter. Philadelphia. J. B. Up
Irtoott Company. 11.16.
Artists, nurses, wives, husbands,'
mothers, fathers, men and women
whom we know, in their loves and sac
rifices, in their yearnings and dis
appointments, are the subjects of
these stories. They are subtle, but
convincing; they are serious, but en
trancing. The author, with an
amazing delicacy, and a too rare ar
tistry, has carried on with distinction
the splendid tradition "of the Ameri
can short story. All who have an
appreciation of this fascinating lit
erary form will find in "Ten Beautiful
Years" a feast for the imagination,
a fund of stimulating enlightenment.
WHEN A MAN'S A MAN. By Harold Bell
WrlvhL Book 8upply Comoany. II. 31.
No one needs question the ability
of the author of "The Shepherd of
the Hills", to write a beautiful, in
teresting story which appeals to the
heart of the reader and this, his
latest book, certainly makes a strong;
appeal. The leading character, Hon
orable Patches, is one of the most
beautiful character, combining the
gentleness and courtesy . of a "real
gentleman" with the natural "grit"
of a genuine cowboy raised on the
plains, i One can only say that it is
a pity such a noble character received
so little return for his -nobility, in
fact, the writer should favor the pub
lic with a sequel telling the further
life of this unusual man. The other
characters, while notable in their own
way, are secondary to (he man who,
although he never rode a horse in his
life, mounted - the wild "Stranger"
and smilingly took his life in his
hands and, when thrown, was willing
to try again.
As an aid to knowledge of the po
litical situation and up-to-date hap
penings, the World's Work is very
valuable. Extremely interesting in
the September issue is the, article on
Mayor Mitchel of New York and the
illustcations accompanying same. The
article on Louis W. Hill, the stres
sor of the great "Jim" Hill, the rail
road magnate, is of leading value,
and the shorter items in regard to
political affairs are worthy of men
tion. Of interest in the September Pop
ular , Science Monthly, especially
while attention is centtred on atfairj
at Washington, is the description "of
The Senator's subway; the monorail
car, whjch quickly carries ofticitls
from the senate building and the

under-the-water films are taken will
be found worthy of note,
HOW JANtCK DAY WON. By Helen

Readers of the previous "Janice

the third volume in the "Da, Some

delightful touches of down east

gifted author where she rightfully j
belongs among the leading fiction
