ing, that Gilbert Parker's reputation and popularity has increased with the appearance of each new book from his pen. His earlier works, "Pierre and His People," "The Translation of a Savage," etc., were good and served to found his reputation; but the "Seats of the Mighty," and " The Battle of the Strong" have placed him in the front rank of modern novelists. What must be even more satisfactory to Mr. Parker and his publishers is the fact that the sale of his later books have been far away and ahead of the sale of his earlier books.

New Books.

GEORGE J. MCLEOD'S BOOKS.

Geo. J. McLeod, Toronto, has a number of good books ready for immediate issue. The trade will find them good, steady sell

ers.

"A Beautiful Alien," by Julia Magruder, is issued in 12mo, with frontispiece, at 50 cents paper and $1.25 cloth. Miss Magruder is too well and favorably known to necessitate an extended introduction for any new volume. The publisher wishes to say simply that he anticipates a very large sale for "A Beautiful Alien," being, as it is, one of the best examples of the author's always interesting work. It is the story of a beautiful "alien" and a prominent lawyer-artist of New York.

Agatha Webb," a detective story, by Anna Katharine Green (Mrs. Rohlfs), is issued at 75 cents paper and $1.25 cloth. This new mystery story by Mrs. Rohlfs is the best of her stories since her famous "Leavenworth Case." In this new story the most improbable situations are by no means impossible ones. Her characters are real living personalities. A package of old letters left by Agatha Webb shed light upon her noble character, so noble and beautiful that her sorrows become our sorrows and we find ourselves wishing she were a personal friend instead of a heroine of fiction. San Francisco Chronicle" says truly: "It abounds in suspicion, startling and curiously misleading developments, and is altogether a distinctly attractive story."

"The

Mr. McLeod has also issued a new Canadian edition of "Slave of the Lamp," by Henry Seton Merriman. This novel was first published in 1891 and has run through several editions. It is one of the best of Mr. Merriman's many good novels. This new edition contains six illustrations. It is issued at 50 cents paper and $1.25 cloth.

Mr. Hatton's industry as a novelist admirably justifies itself. His versatility is well attested in his latest story, "The White King of Manoa," which, in addition

to being an excellent romance of love and curious adventure, is a very carefully written historical and social study of the time of Queen Elizabeth. Paper, 50 cents; cloth, $1.25. The Elizabethan period is not barren of data on which to build in fiction a social fabric, or of historical material of an authentic character on which to base a romance. It is only fair to state that the "romantic" element forms the smaller half of the story, and is not really entered upon till the tale is half told. The story introduces various Court scenes, in which the Queen, Essex, Raleigh and others are made to figure. Raleigh's character and career to the last tragic chapter in it form a special thread of the story from this point to the end of the book. The story reverts to the unhappy events of Raleigh's long imprisonment, the death of the Queen, the coming of King James, the release once more of the great Admiral, and his departure on the expedition from which he returned to face ignominy and the block. David's strange career closes in tranquillity, and the story has an altogether idyllic ending. The author's historical sketches, his occasional comments on life and events, and his not infrequent allusions to the fate of Spain as a colonizing power are a distinct embellishment to the work.

W. J. GAGE & CO.'S BOOKS.

The W. J. Gage Company are to be congratulated on securing the Canadian market for the following new books. They will all sell well wherever shown :

Those who enjoy pathos, some fun, and a breezy Irish dialect, should be shown "The Barrys," a new book by Shan F. Bullock. Of his work an English journal says:— "Mr. Anthony Hope, at his best, has given nothing more delicious in humor. Surely no more delightful picture of Irish life and Irish people has ever been drawn." The book is supplied very tastily bound in cloth, and in a cheaper paper edition.

The many friends of Sara Jeanette Duncan (Mrs. Everard Cotes), one of the most brilliant and popular of Canadian writers of fiction, will be glad to learn that her latest book, which was published in Canada only a week ago, is meeting with a large sale. Miss Duncan's first book, "A Social Departure," at once placed her in the front rank. For some years Mrs. Cotes has resided in India, and, like Kipling, has drawn much of the charm and inspiration of her writings from the study of life there. Mrs. Cotes knows India, its people, and its customs, and in "The Path of a Star" she is

possibly at her best. The Canadian copyright edition is published by W. J. Gage & Co., Toronto.

A Canadian edition of "Houses of Glass," by Dr. James Algie, ought to sell well. The author is a thorough Canadian. He was born in 1857, at the

village of Ayr, Ontario. His preliminary

education was received at Dundas and St. Catharines. At the age of 18 he commenced the study of medicine. Three years later, after taking a degree at Toronto and Trinity Universities, he commenced the practice of his profession in Port Elgin, county of Bruce. Thence he removed to Claude, in the county of Peel, to enter into partnership with the late Dr. Robinson, of Brampton, but, failing to come to an understanding on the terms of partnership, he located at Alton, where he has been in active practice ever since. For years he has been regarded locally as a clear thinker and an able writer, and frequently contributed articles on current topics to the newspapers of the district. Three years ago, unknown to any of his friends, he commenced writing, in his leisure moments, the chapters which now compose 66 Houses of Glass," without, however, any intention of having the work published. One day during his absence, some friends discovered the manuscript, and, after reading it, insisted on its being published. After some delay, the manuscript was submitted to Professor Goldwin Smith, of Toronto, the author agreeing to submit to his judgment on the matter. A favorable opinion and a letter of introduction to several publishing houses were received in reply. The result is the booknow published by The W. J. Gage Co., Limited-which is bound to create a great deal of interest.

WM. BRIGGS' ANNOUNCEMENTS.

William Briggs, Toronto, announces the following publications in press : "A Son of Erin," a new story, by Annie S. Swan; "Active Service," a military story, by Stephen Crane-this should prove a "hit" just at this time when the war spirit is manifesting itself so tremendously; "The Bible and Higher Criticism," by Rev. Dr. Dewart, whose reputation as a vigorous polemical writer and the publicity given to his controversy with Dr. Workman will no doubt stimulate a demand for this new work; "The Chronicles of Aunt Minervy Ann," by Joel Chandler Harris, which bids fair to rival his famous "Uncle Remus " book in popularity; a second edition of Mrs. McAlister's clever story, Clipped Wings"; a volume of verse, entitled "Lyrical Echoes," by Miss Katherine A. Clarke, of Toronto, a new Canadian poet, whose verse is said to be of superior merit; a volume of "Lectures on Christian Unity," by Rev. Herbert Symonds, M.A., of Peterborough; "The Pioneers of Blanshard,' by

William Johnston, of St. Mary's, ex-Reeve of the township, an able and sympathetic account of the pioneers of the fine old township of Blanshard, in Perth County; a biography of the late Rev. Dr. Cochrane, D.D., of Brantford, by Rev. R. W. Grant, D.D., of Orillia, who is already widely known by his pseudonym of "Knoxonian"; "The Lives of the Lieutenant-Governors of Upper Canada and Ontario," by David B. Read, Q.C., the author of "The Life of Governor Simcoe," "The Lives of the ""The Life of Sir Isaac Brock," Judges," etc., which is to be finely illustrated, will sell at $2, and for which advance orders for 500 copies have already been booked.

"SERANUS" AND HER WRITINGS.

Mrs. Harrison's (Seranus) "Pine, Rose, and Fleur de Lis," that was published in 1891, at once raised that Canadian writer to a high position in the regard of competent critics. The opening fifty-two poems under the general heading of "Down in the River"-most of them villanelles-are among the most sprightly and gracefully-beautiful productions that have been written by Canadian pens. They describe a trip, real or imaginary, taken by two friends to Quebec. They.

Longed to taste the Eastern breeze,
Longed to go away together
In a flash of summer weather,
Where the Gallic pulses beat
Quickly in the quiet street;
Where a quainter life prevails,
Where the Gallic pulses beat
And no modern strife assails :
Where few others seldom go,
Where the red-doored houses low
Stand behind the stately row
Of leafy poplars, where they show
Famous holyhocks and vines,

Where they make their own sweet wines :
Chat and weave and spin and knit

All the day-0, picture it!
Where there flames the marigold
Side by side with sunflowers bold.

[blocks in formation]

Where the gabled houses meet

Almost o'er the grass-grown street,
Where the maidens kneel and pray
At the cross beside the way,
While their mothers rake the hay.

The verses that sketch their tour are unique in their lightness of touch and delicacy of appreciation. No wonder the "Saturday Review," six years ago, said that "all who prize local color and young enthusiasm and deep-hearted patriotism will find much to content them in the Canadian poems of the quaint little volume appropriately entitled, 'Pine, Rose, and Fleur de Lis.' The series of songs, 'Down the River,' are veritable caskets of precious New World conceits." Mrs. Harrison followed up her success with this book by several important stories

for the magazines, among them being "The Holding up of the Alhambra," which ap peared in the "Strand Magazine," and was

noticed in several quarters as its most brilliant story for that year. Another story was "A Social Anomaly," published in the "Pall Mall Magazine," and also found many readers. Mrs. Harrison also contributed an article to the "Atlantic Monthly" entitled "The Decline of the Amateur," which was widely quoted some three years ago, while her "Glimpse of the Siege of Louisbourg," which appeared in the "New England Magazine," showed the possession on her part of undoubted historical instinct. Her last book, "The Forest of Bourg Marie," (Morang & Co.) has been most favorably reviewed, and presents a forcible and unique view of life among the French Canadians of the Province of Quebec. As we read these graphic and picturesque pages we cannot help feeling that here we have work that is equal, in parts, to any fiction that has had a Canadian scene for its subject. It is time our Canadian public awoke to the fact that they have good writers in their own land.

A NEW BOOK ON SHAKESPEARE.

Messrs. Geo. N. Morang & Co. announce for early publication a most interesting brochure, by Prof. Goldwin Smith, entitled 'Shakespeare: the Man." In this work the professor attempts to conjecture the character of Shakespeare from the indications given in various passages of his poetry and his dramas. It will be read with deep interest, not only by students of Shakespeare, who will find something in it hitherto unattempted, but by the general public, a large proportion of whom are familiar with the passages on which Mr. Goldwin Smith builds his theories, but who will see them under his guidance in a fresh and interesting light. Shakespeare and the Bible are so well known by us that we often fail from sheer familiarity to discover points that if we came to the writings with a fresh eye would strike us at once. Whether we agree with the professor's conclusions or not every

one will welcome the opportunity of reading what he has to say. Messrs. Morang will publish the book to England and the United States also.

MISS ANNIE DOUGLAS SEDGWICK.

The writers of the male sex must look to their laurels if such books as "The Confounding of Camelia " (Morang & Co.) are to be produced in the future by women. For books of this sort show a penetration and an instinct, combined with a forcible literary style, that puts them on a level with some of the best productions in the department of modern fiction. When this novel by Miss Annie Douglas Sedgwick first came out, it was said in some quarters that the writing was evidently that of an experienced woman of the world who had lived long enough to understand and judiciously to appraise the motives that underlie the actions and ways of what is called Society.

She wrote about a year and a half ago her first novel, which was entitled "The Dull Miss Archinard," a charming and dainty performThis novel may be said to have been the culmination of a habit of writing stories for the delectation of her sisters. In "Scribner's Magazine" for June, 1898, she had a short story which displays great cleverness and subtlety. The entire English press has spoken with great favor of "The Confounding of Camelia." Miss Sedgwick's life is quietly social, and she is reported to be absolutely unknown at present in literary circles.

"BUFFALO JONES": FORTY YEARS

OF ADVENTURE.

The Publishers' Syndicate; cloth, $2.50. There are very few individuals whose lives furnish incidents for a book of stirring adventure. Hon. C. J. Jones, of Kansas, is, however, one of these few. The book, compiled by Col. Henry Inman from the journal of Mr. Jones, is full of true incidents that cannot be exceeded in interest by any book of fiction. From his experiences with buffalo, Mr. Jones has been called "Buffalo Jones." Not only has he shot and lassoed buffalo, but he has tamed and bred them, and to-day he and a partner own the largest herd of domesticated buffalo in existence. They have also succeeded in raising a cross between the buffalo and ordinary cattle, which they have named Cattalo, and from which they expect great things. But it is not in these scientific or commercial points that the book possesses its strongest fascination, but in the account of the habits of wild animals and the methods and dangers of the chase. There are few things about the life of a plainsman or trapper that cannot be learned from the flowing narrative of this book. Canadian readers will perhaps be particularly interested in the account of the journey of Mr. Jones to our own barren lands in the far north in search of musk oxen. He desired to capture some of the calves alive, and bring them down for purposes of demonstration. How he reached farther north than almost any other adventurer has ever gone in Canada, how he captured the calves, and then how it came that he failed to get them out of the country, form a story of daring skill, perseverance and disappointment that must appeal strongly to every reader, young or old. In putting this book on the Canadian market, the Publishers' Syndicate have made no mistake in what should interest Canadian readers.

daily papers), should be a not inappropriate one for the appearance of V. J. Leatherdale's novel, "A Fair Imperialist," which Fisher Unwin, London, announces for immediate issue. The scene is laid at Lake Como, and there are accounts of gambling both at Monte Carlo and in private. Petronella, the heroine's brother, had been in the Jameson Raid, so it is easy to see where the Imperialistic note comes in. A duel fought with peculiar ferocity is one of the main incidents of the story.

Mr. Kipling has written a long poem for his new book, "Stalky & Co.," which Geo. N. Morang & Co., Toronto, have just published.

The following are two stanzas :
"Let us now praise famous men,"
Men of little showing,
For their work continueth
And their work continueth
Greater than their knowing,

This we learned from famous men
Knowing not its uses,
When they showed in daily work
Man must finish off his work-
Right or wrong, his daily work-
And without excuses.

Literary Motes.

The proverbially slow sale of poetry has been jolted into an unwonted pace by the Markham's popular demand for Edwin "The Man With the Hce, and Other Poems," the first Canadian edition of which has sold out very rapidly. When the stimulus of increasing trade reaches poetry we may take it as pretty well settled that good times have come again.

"The Evolution of General Ideas," by Th. Ribot. 232 pages; large 12mo.; cloth, $1.25. M. Ribot is professor in the celebrated College de France. This is an authorized translation from the French original by Frances A. Welby. M. Ribot's larger works on psychology are so well known as to insure a large demand for this new and more popular expression of his views.

T. Y Crowell & Co., New York, publish "Important Events,' a book of dates, historical, biographical, political, religious, literary, scientific and industrial. Compiled by Geo. W. Powers. One vol. 18mo; cloth; v+321 pp., index; 50 cents.

By means of a few easily understood abbreviations occasionally employed, Mr. Powers condenses usually into one short line a vast amount of information covering the six thousand years of the world's authentic history. It is a history in a nutshell. The volume is a model of selection and condensation, and will be found invaluable for the desk, and especially for the traveler who may wish to have a basis of history

for his visit to any country. A complete index adds greatly to its value.

The Open Court Publishing Company, Chicago, are publishing a number of valuable works for philosophic readers and students. Among the latest issues in this line are the following :

"Solomon, and Solomonic Literature," by Moncure Daniel Conway. 248 pages, large 12mo; cloth, $1.50. Mr. Conway is already well-known as the author of "Idols and Ideals," and other works. He is a deep student of Biblical and Oriental Literature. His views if anything but orthodox, are certainly original. Moreover, he expresses himself in terse language. One can enjoy reading him even if not prepared to accept his views.

William Briggs, Toronto, has issued "Canada," by Miss J. N. McIlwraith. It is one of an excellent series for young people, entitled "The Children's Study," published by Fisher Unwin, London. In "Canada" Miss McIlwraith has given the public a little book which will undoubtedly be highly appreciated. It is an excellent condensation of the history of Canada. The only fault we can find is that too much space is devoted to the earlier history of the country and too little to its later history. It is quite right that our young people should know the early history of their country, but it is even more important that the events of the present century should be set forth more fully than the events of two centuries ago. This is a matter, however, which can be readily adjusted in a later edition.

Samuel C. Cross, Martinsburg, W. Virginia, is the author and publisher of "The Negro and the Sunny South: a Lecture." This lecture is an eloquent indictment of slavery, and a powerful appeal for "equal rights" for the colored people in the Southern States. The United States has a great problem to solve in just how best to rule its vast colored population. Mr. Cross recalls some of the numberless cases of lynching of negroes, and says: "At the very time contributions were collected to civilize the colored heathen, southern ministers were instructing their Christian congregations how to practice lawlessness and brutality on the blacks at home." Mr. Cross' book will attract wide attention. It is published at 50 cents paper, and $1 in cloth.

Rand, McNally & Company, Chicago and New York, publish "Sense and Satire : based upon Nineteenth Century Philosophy," by Wm L. Breyfogle, with illustrations by John W. Breyfogle. 238 pages; 12mo; decorated cloth binding, $1.50. A

Mr. Frank T. Bullen's forthcoming book will be entitled "The Log of a Sea-Waif." The brilliant author of "The Cruise of the Cachalot," and "Idylls of the Sea," presents in this new work the continuous story of the actual experiences of his first four years at sea. In graphic and picturesque phrases he has sketched the events of voyages to the West Indies, to Bombay and the Coromandel coast, to Melbourne and Rangoon. Nothing could be of more absorbing interest than this wonderfully vivid account of foks'l humanity, and the adventures and strange sights and experiences attendant upon deep-sea voyages. It is said by those who have read the advance sheets that the book is likely to prove a companion volume to our own "Two Years before the Mast."

The publishers, D. Appleton & Company, announce that the book will be ready almost immediately.

Far Above Rubies. By George Macdonald. (Toronto The Musson Book Company.) This is a very neat edition of one of the shorter stories by the well-known author, who has for many years had a large circle of interested and enthusiastic admirers. George Macdonald always lays stress upon, and, in that way, enforces the simple virtues of life, which, in their simplicity, beauty and strength, go to show how far true men and

women are above the brutes.

66

"Blood is

not spirit," he says, and also adds that in the absence of the simple virtues of the soul, in spite of all artificial acquirements and social status, men and women degenerate till they are very little above the beasts that perish." The setting sentiments and coloring of the story are thoroughly English. When people get into difficulties in this country, few hope, and our authors do not let their characters hope, to be extracted by some good body leaving them a legacy in a will. "Far Above Rubies" is a beautiful story, and has something in it that will interest and bless every reader.

Mr. Frank Vincent's important and instructive book, "Actual Africa," has a peculiar interest for readers at this time. The author presents vivid accounts of his visits to Delagoa Bay, and to Durban in Natal, whence he travelled to Newcastle, Charlestown, Johannesburg, and Pretoria. Mr. Vincent gives most graphic accounts of the life of the Boers, and the mining and other interests of the Transvaal. His visit to the Transvaal was followed by a journey through the Orange Free State, where he visited the capital, Bloemfontein, and afterward he made a careful study of the Kimberley diamond mines. His journey southward and his stay in Cape Town furnished additional facilities for a comprehensive view of the present theatre of action in Africa. The results of this personal study of the territory now attracting so much attention include many characteristic illustrations. "Actual Africa" is published by D. Appleton & Company, who have also issued "Oom Paul's People," by H. C. Hillegas, which has been called "the true story of the Boers."

"The Road to Paris" is by Robert Neilson Stephens, author of "An Enemy to the King," and some other well-known stories. There are half a dozen spirited illustrations by H. C. Edwards. The interest of this story to the Canadian reader is the way in which the author brings into use many interesting events of the revolutionary war, and many persons who were prominent on both sides. Dick Wetherall, the hero of the story, is of Scottish descent, born in 1758 in Pennsylvania, on the banks of the Juniata. His reading has been limited, but in all his young life he is fired with the hope of seeing Paris. The revolutionary war calls him from his peaceful home and he starts out on a series of dangerous adventures by flood and field, by city and prison, which eventually take him to the place of his aspirations. He falls in love by the way, and in Paris he finds the sweetheart whom he has lost in his journey

ings. The story is well told, one never tires of the adventures of Dick, and his cheerfulness and hopefulness, very often under the most trying circumstances, are both inspiring and amusing. Mr. Stephens works up into his story events such as that of Bunker Hill, and the movement of the revolutionary party against Quebec, and he introduces characters such as Brook Watson and Necker, the famous French minister. Altogether the story is very lively, and for such a lively story a very satisfactory one, particularly in its presentation of certain kinds of English life a century ago. The Musson Book Company, Toronto,

This new volume by Mrs. Ryan is a great and exceedingly pleasant surprise.

Already the author is well and favorably known, and much beloved, by a wide circle of readers. Her "Flower of France," her "Pagan of the Alleghanies," her "Told in the Hills," are rich in the blended elements of strength that appeal in power to the human heart. But good as they are, they had not quite prepared us to expect from the same pen the superlative excellence of this new romance, "The Bondwoman," a work that will ultimately find its place among the nineteenth century classics.

The articles in the October "Forum" are of great interest, a number being written by widely known men. Senator J. C. Burrows forecasts the Presidential contest of 1900 with a paper on "This Year's Elections; Their Bearing on the Presidential Election." Comptroller of the Currency, Charles G. Dawes, writes a paper of much importance

on

"The Present Outlook for Currency Reform." The Dean of Canterbury, F. W. Farrar, speaks with no uncertain sound upon "The Sunday Question." Oscar P. Austin, chief of the United States Bureau of Statistics, gives an interesting account of the rapidly growing "Commercial Japan; " Prof. Sohm, of Leipzig, a member of the Code Commission, tells of the true significance of "The Civil Code of Germany;" and Charles Howard Shinn considers, in his article on theLiterature of the Pacific Coast," the prominent part that Californian writers have taken in the department of fiction.

G. W. Steevens, the war correspondent who became famous for his dramatic narrative of Kitchener's campaign to Khartoum, shows, in a thoughtful article in the October number of "Harper's Magazine," the de basing effect of the Dreyfus affair on France. An article by Hon. John Barrett, late United States Minister to Siam, and for ten months war correspondent at Manila, gives an admirable representation of the character and personality of Admiral Dewey. Sir Martin Conway, the greatest mountain climber in the world, opens the number with the story of his ascent of Illimani, one of the highest and most inaccessible peaks of the Bolivian Andes. Part second of "The First American; His Homes and His Households," by Leila Herbert, gives an interesting description of Washington's life in New York, when that city was the seat of the national government. Julian Ralph, under the title "Tenting on Two Seas," describes a voyage on one of the famous P. and O. steamers from England to Calcutta. Short stories are contributed by Seumas MacManus, I. Zangwill, Mary Hartwell Catherwood and Stephen Crane.
