THE STORY OF A COUNTRY TOWN. By

A new illustrated edition of a story
which for years .has held its place as
one of the classics that faithfully

homeliness, but is never vulgar. It
does not flatter the west, nor paint
its rough and rude traits as heroic;
it perceives and states, and the re
are these descriptions, for the author
has lived in close proximity to birds
and animals, and shares their secrets.
The stories he tells are vivid and
fascinating, and many unusual photo

GAWNE. By C. A
' Clurc Co. S1.25.
This is a story of the southwest, in
the days of the big cattle ranges. It
goes back to the time when the gun
was the court of final appeal, when
men hated fiercely and loved with
passionate ardor. It tells how the law
came to a cow-town, dominated by
a cattle thief and rustler; how one
man, by sheer force of personality,
succeeded in awakening that in
stinctive desire for law and order
possessed individually and collective
ly by even crude communities.
BY THE WORLD FORGOT. By Cyrus
t -rownaena Brady. A. C. McClurg Co,
, 11.40. $, , .
A scion of a prominent New York
family, groom-to-be in a "marriage
of convenience," is shanghaied aboard
a sailing vessel by his business part
ner, who is in love with his pro
spective bride. The story of the un
fortunate victim's awful experiences
tmtil and after he reaches a lonely is
- land in the south seas, completely
cut off from the rest of the world, and
the finding there of his heart's desire
in a maiden of the forgotten island,
is very entertaining and exciting.
George H. Doran Co.
By Carolyn Well.
This is a mystery tale of cumula
tive suspense. There is a picturesque
house, a spirit medium, a smart Long
Island set, a detective very unconven
tional in fiction, and the sweet of ro
mance at the denouement. The plot
revolves about the mystery of which,
if either, murdered the master of the
house known as "Faulkner's Folly,"
his wife or his artist's model. '

HONEST ABE. Alonio Rothchlld. Hough
on Mifflin Co. u; , . ' .
' This book deals with the first part
of Lincoln's life, the period' in which
his honesty was the quality that fo
cused the attention of all with whom
be came in contact. The author has
studied a vast amount of material,
and has woven together a vivid and
living portrait of his subject, always
in this aspect of the typical honest
man." The result is at once an im
portant addition to Lincoln literature; :
and a most inspiring, narrative for
tread :rs of every age. v
