No. 5 John Street

By Richard Whiteing. Paper, 50c.; cloth, $1.00. Extracts from a letter from Justin McCarthy, M.P., to The Independent:

"No. 5 John Street' is the title of a novel about which people are talking a great deal over here, and about which, very likely, people are talking a great deal on your side of the ocean as well. The novel has just been published, and is the work of Mr. Richard Whiteing-a remarkable book by a remarkable man. 'No. 5 John Street' has for its main interest the old contrast between the lives of the poor and the lives of the rich. The grim, dark life of the very poor in the heart of a great city has never before, I venture to say, been pictured with such terrible reality as it is painted in Mr. Whiteing's pages; and yet the truth is brought out with genuinely artistic hand, and its full effect is produced without any touch of the loathsomeness which would have to be encountered if the task were to be executed by a writer like M. Zola.....I think Mr. Whiteing has made his mark and come in for his popularity. 'No. 5 John Street' has already passed through several editions, and is beginning to be regarded as a book that everybody is bound to read."

It has been many years since any poem has excited so much interest as has Mr. Markham's now famous voicing of the protest against life's inequalities which he saw in Millet's painting. In a few weeks after its appearance, the author had received hundreds of letters from prominent literary people all over the world commending the work highly. Prof. James, of Harvard, for instance, wrote: "The poem is magnificent, and reeks with humanity and morality." This is Mr. Markham's first collection of poems, with a frontispiece reproduction of the painting which inspired his best effort.

A story of the great Burlington strike. By Cy Warman, author of "The Story of the Railroad," etc. Paper, 75c.; cloth, $1.25.

"Mr. Cy Warman's new book gives one a deeper insight of that now famous page in the history of American railroads that has ever been offered. It is fiction, to be true, but it is also largely fact, and, what is more, it is the truth as seen from both sides, that of the railroad officials, and that of the strikers."-N. Y. Mail and Express.

GEORGE N. MORANG & COMPANY, Limited, announce for early publication Prof. Goldwin Smith's interesting brochure "Shakespeare: the Man," an endeavour to conjecture what sort of man the great dramatist was from passages in his writings. It goes without saying that this book will be enquired for by all reading people. Crown 8vo, cloth, 75c.

GEORGE N. MORANG & COMPANY, Limited, would respectfully ask the trade to bear in mind their Florin Series of current fiction which began with the ever-popular "Bob, Son of Battle," of which several large editions have had to be run off.

certain Things," by Henry van Dyke; "The Grandissimes," by George W. Cable; "The Ship of Stars," by A. T. QuillerCouch, (Q.); "The Land of the Long Night," by Paul B. Du Chaillu; "The Augustan Ages," by Oliver Elton, and "Sermons and Addresses," by Robert Flint, D.D., LL.D.

A letter was recently received by Dr. Briggs, addressed "William Briggs, Pub., No. 5 John Street, Toronto." Across the face of the envelope the postman, who had carried the letter down John Street, had written: "No such number. Returned." This reminds one of the story that comes from St. John, N.B.: A lad had bought a scribbler, and told is father he got it at David Harum's. On the father declaring he must be mistaken, for there was no such book dealer in the city, the boy repeated emphatically that he had bought it there, as he had seen the name in big red letters on the window !

The extraordinary sale of "No. 5 John Street," in Great Britain, has had duplication in relative proportion in Canada. The publisher reports that 3,000 copies have been sold in two weeks. The first Canadian edition of the book was 5,000 copies, evidence that Mr. Briggs had no lack of faith in its selling qualities. Undoubtedly this is one of the great books of this year of remarkable books. Crockett's "Kit Kennedy" has also scored a record, over 2,500 copies having been sold within two weeks. With three such books as "David Harum," "Kit Kennedy" and "No. 5 John Street," the William Briggs house surely have shared well in the distribution of the plums.

George N. Morang & Co., the well known Toronto publishers, have done a graceful and generous act in presenting to the Canadian contingent no fewer than 50 sets of the Canadian copyright edition of Rudyard Kipling's works, which this firm manage in Canada for the famous author. It goes without saying that this will be an addition to their stock of books on the voyage-and, perhaps, alas! in the hospital-that our boys will value above many others. Noth

ing more likely to inspire them from the conflict in which they are to take part could possibly be given them than some of Kipling's stirring lays, while for entertainment, it is certain that every volume will be well thumbed. Messrs. Morang's handsome gift will foot up altogether between 300 and 400 books.

A good many members of the trade are having a quiet laugh at the illustration on the fourth page of a neat 24-page catalogue of recent and popular books issued by a well-known publishing house situated not a thousand miles from the corner of Yonge and Front streets, Toronto. The illustration is from "Spanish John," and in it one may see a young lady who is supposed to be "tightening straps" or something like that. But some people will be liable to think that the artist of the illustration in question has made quite a funny break. It is to be hoped indeed that "Brer" Archibald-he of the Toronto Morality Department-will not have his attention drawn to this picture. He might be so shocked at this method of initiating a vulgar public as to one way of "shortening straps" as to be deprived of sleep for thirty days at least.

Gilbert Parker is to be the guest of the Canadian Society of Authors at a banquet in Toronto, on the 24th inst. Mr. Parker has become quite a prolific author, and Canadians may well be proud of the cosmopolitan reputation he has acquired. And while Mr. Parker has already given us some excellent stories, we may expect others still better from his pen. For Gilbert Parker is unique in a way-quite unlike some other well-known novelists. Clark Russell has never written anything to equal his first stories "John Holdsworth" and "The Wreck of the Grosvenor." Thackeray's most popular book is " Vanity Fair" -not one of his later books approaches it in popularity. Sir Walter Scott's "Waverley" was his first and remains his greatest book. Mrs. Henry Wood wrote some forty novels; but not one of them begins to approach her early work, "East Lynne," in popularity. Anthony Hope's later novels are good, but not nearly as good as the "Prisoner of Zenda." On the other hand, it is quite remarkable and worth not
