THE ALLIES' FAIRY BOOK. Br Edmund
Oosse. Philadelphia. J. B. Llppencott
& Co. I1.J5. ,.
What! Is the war to be mixed up
with fairies? It looks that way. But
it is really a collection 6f fairy tales,
one each being from the jiations
known as the allies, with the excep
tion of (Roumania, which joined the
allies after the book had gone to
' press. The hook is attractively bound
and- the print is exceptionally clear
and black.' Fairy tales, as we all
know, never pall on the "young idea.'
POLLY TROTTER. PATRIOT. Br Emllle
, Benson Knlpe and Alden Arthur Knlpe.
New York. The MacMillan Company.
That a little girl can serve her coun
try in time of trouble quite as hero
ically as the boys and men of the
family is the thought underlying this
stirring story. Polly Trotter's brother
and father help the colonists in their
fight for freedom and Polly, for a
while, bewails the fact that because
she is a girl there is nothing; she can
do. Her error in thinking this way
and the splendid way in which she
aids the cause comprise as interesting
a story of revolutionary days as "The
Maid of 76," by the same author.

There are big questions dealt with
in this notable and timely book. Re
ligion answers them in the affirma
tive physical science, apparently, in
the negative. This work employs the
findings of science to show that sci
ence and religion are really in har
mony, and that all the known facts of
nature are in accord with the funda
mental postulates of' religion.

This book is a penetrating study of
world politics. It combines a cool ana

goal toward which mankind should
strive. The book is neither pro-ally or
pro-German. The writer is not only
a pacifist but a warm advocate oi pre

1,700 illustrations. Never before in a
book of this size has so large a vo

come uo in their worn, especially
those pertaining to the proper forms
of irregular verbs, ttegrees ot com
oarison of adjectives and adverbs, use
of prepositions, the exact and effec

This compact and elegant little vol

mental vocabularies. It is so light,
so handy, so well printed that it is
a real pleasure to use it. It is just
