It is the old cry .for customers:
"Roses, roses, why'U buy my roses?"
And everybody loves roses, still the
loveliest flower girl can not sell enough
to keep her father from work. The
Sunday newspapers are sold with
pretty chromo copies of paintings. The
coal-dealers, pickle and tobacco man
ufacturers give all sorts of prizes for
a. given number of coupons from pur
chasers of their goods.. Merchants of
one commodity sell their wares by giv
ing away someuiing that another man
makes his living ' by selling. In the
newspaper and magazine world it is
not the publication that gives the most
news or the best stories and essays that
attains the largest circulation. The
publisher who offers the largest boot
and circulates his offer most exten
sively attains the largest circulation.
It is said that the Ladies' Home Jour
nal has the largest circulation in this
country, and Munsey's Magazine is
second. Yet neither Mr. Bok nor Mr.
Munsey are distinguished editors, and
both publications are mediocre. But
Mr. Bok and Mr. Munsey have the gift
of convincing people a large number
of people that if they subscribe for
either magazine they are getting a
The operation of competition, the in
crease in the number of competitors
has developed the system of giving
prizes. The buyer does not get any
more for his money than he used to,
or than he would if the system were
not in use. He gets something he has
not asked for as an inducement for
him to buy what he wants, and the
quality of the article he desires is in
evitably affected by the cost of the
prize which is given and therefore be
yond criticism. There must always be
a margin of profit, which is the differ
ence between the cost of production
and the selling price.
Heretofore books have sold on their
merits. Fortunately there are still
people who like to read for reading's
sake. There are others who must be
coaxed. Authors and publishers need
the coy readers and thus the prize sys
tem has invaded storybooks.
Eleven well-know authors, Stockton,
Cable, Paul Leicester Ford, Robert
Grant, Mrs. Burton Harrison, Sarah
Orne Jewett Bertha Runkle, Ruth Mc
Enery Stuart, Octave Thanet, Owen
Wister, and one less well-known
author, Charles G. D. Roberts, have
contributed the twelve stories which
have been collected and published by
Small, Maynard and Company under
the name of "The House Party." The
tales are supposed to be told by the
guests in a country house after a pf o
longed rain has made outdoor sports
and diversions impossible. Paul Lei
cester Ford has written the introduc
tions to and connections between the
stories. It Is a Decameron where the
stories are actually told by different
authors. The effort at Identification is
interesting and stimulates discrimina
tion. But the stories are good enough
in themselves for a public which has
not been spoiled by prizes and bar
gains. There can be no dispute about taste.
The anatomy of one man's eye is like
that of another, but one man selects
a woman for her beauty whom another
man considers ugly. There are even
some people who consider the "Venus
de MIlo uninteresting. It is a fortu
nate provision, this diversity of taste.
Otherwise there would be much more
quarreling and dueling than there Is
now. The book called Sylvia In which
the publishers, Small, Maynard and Co.,
have printed twelve Ideal heads- is cal
culated to establish for the moment
what the American taste in women is.
The plan is ingenious and comprehen
sive. Sylvia Is supposed to be the
most beautiful woman in Europe, and
Blashfield. Blenner, Champney, Louise
Cox, De Camp, Elliott Gilbert, Herter,
Hutt, Stevens and Wenzell have con
tributed their conceptions of what is
the most perfect feminine beauty.
Helen would not have been a belie in
this century. The forehead and the
nose on the same line are not popular
except on coins and medals. Gibson
has had much to do with forming the
taste and In this collection of twelve
heads there are two "Gibson" girls.
To be sure one of them is drawn by
Christy and one by Gilbert, but both
is in the Gibson style. He Invented It,
and it rightfully bears his name. It
is likely that these two will receive the
largest number of votes. The contest
is to be determined not by a fallible
committee but by the votes of all who
participate in the contest, which means
that the head receiving the largest
number of votes will confer twelve
points upon everyone who choses it.
The next popular will have the value
of eleven points, and so on. The
contest will settle what is the most
popular type of beauty for the moment.
Three years from now some other type
may be the Ideal.
The story is a love story whose
heroine is said to be the most beauti
ful woman in Europe. It is not wildly
exciting. For those troubled with br
somnia It is a reliable and Innocuous
A Bull Terrier
A Bar Sinister, in the March Scrib
ners' by Richard Harding Davis, is
the story of a dog and a gentleman.
"The Kid" respects himself, is careful
of the feelings and rights of others
and is not puffed up. The dog tells
his own story. We are In. the mood
for animal stories. The mood has
been cultivated by Seton-Thompson,
Rudyard Kipling and others. So Mr.
Davis' biography of the clever, brave,
devoted bull-terrier is, among other
things, timely. Of all the breeds the
bull-terrier Is the most like folks and
has humanized himself to a marvelous
point. No man can get well acquaint
ed with another man's dog, especially
with another man's bull-terrier dog.
He is reserved, not suspicious and
snappy like the black and tan, but he
is dignified and even haughty, and if
anything on four legs that barks has
a right to be proud of his intellect and
character it is the right kind of a bull
terrier pup. His devotion to the mas
ter who has chosen him from all other
pups is to the death. Such a dog lays
aside reserve in the presence of the
one man who is to him the source of
light, food and intelligence. He gives
him his confidence. Mr. Davis has a
bull-terrier himself. Otherwise he
might have chosen a stupid New
foundland which is supposed to pos
sess life-saving sagacity. To write such
a story one must possess literary pow
er but besides and indispensably one
must have owned for a number of
years a good bull-terrier. Mr. Davis
has earned and received his confidence.
The Bar Sinister is not the happy In
spiration of a moment but the result
of an intimacy, very much to Mr.
Davis' credit, with a high-bred bull
terrier. The pup remembered his mother and
insisted on his folks' receiving the for
lorn black-and-tan whom the "Wynd
ham Kid" rescued from a desperate
fight. It is doubtful If even a bull
terrier knows his own mother after he
has been separated from her. But of
course this "mother" interest Is the"
romance of the story and when his
long-lost mother turns up again her
heroic son sitting on the front seat of
a dog cart with a stylish dog overcoat
on is not ashamed of her, bedraggled,
muddy and unmistakably black-and-tan
though she be. The meeting is the
climax of the story arid Mr. Davis is
devoted to sentiment Without the re-
