Every book, like the proverbial-dog.
"has its day," and the day for boxed
editions with the box costing more than
the book tho padded binding, the white
and ; gilt and lavender :, creations, has
passed with the -holiday season and the
day for the appreciation of the literary
worth of a book has dawned. In more
than one home the lament will go. up
that "the book suitable for the Christ
mas trade" has found a resting place
In their midst. The handsome bindings,
the "catchy" titles are proving "a snare
and a delusion," and in most cases, but
more especially In regard to children's
books, ''many of them had better, work
out their greatest usefulness In , orna
menting the center table tliaji by enter
taining a reader. ",
But like -the aforesaid dog, they have
had their uses, not alone in supplying
the demand, of a mystified gift hunter,
but the reaction and the desire they
produce lor better, , more substantial
and more permanent literature,, la worth
the price paid for . the worthless gew
gaw attractions whlqh the holiday, mar
In anticipation of this the publishers
have : held back many real works of
merit, asking the reviewers to give them
attention after the rush of the Christmas
trade subsides, and the need of J sub
stantlal reading is felt. Among these
Is the magnificent production of Johu
H. Long, ex-secretary of the navy. "The
New ' American Navy," from the press
of -The OutlooK company. It Is beaut!
fully bound In navy blue -and red, and
profusely Illustrated with historic bat
tie scenes and portraits of naval offi
cers. . In the near future a detailed re
view of the subject matter will be given

It in its accuracy as compared with
contemporary . writers and press ac

ised, from the publishing house of John
Lane. , a series under the title of "The
Crown Llbrarle," embracing memoirs,
history, belles-letres, poetry, natural his.
tory, etc, A unique teature will be that
each subject will be bound in a dis
tlnctlve color making it easily distin
guishable on the library shelves with
other books. - Among them will appear
Memoirs of Lady Fanshawe," - wife of
the Rt. Hon. Sir Richard Fanshawe, am
bassador from Charles the Second to
the court of-Madrid, written by herself.
It is an entirely new edition with in
troduction by Beatrice Marshall ana is
handsomely illustrated. - :
-. "The ' Complete Angler" That dear
old, but always new, and never super
seded book, will appear under new cover
and conditions with an Introduction by
Richard La Galllenne. Among the poeta
will come a new edition of "The De
fense of Guinevere and other Poems,"
by WUliam Morris. This particular vol
ume, will have upward of , 60 illustra
tions with head and. tall piece for every
poem, by Jessie il. King, whose work
has recently created a wave of kindly
appreciation from critics of Illustrators
of the new school.

series will have a uniform price of $1.50
"A Rare Volume" More than once U
heard the lament by scholars that "the

tained in the very earliest stages . of

today. Attention was called to tms by
the sale of a most remarkable work a
few days ago. In London. It waa
Flemish manuscript, containing 29G
Illuminated designs boldly outlined with
the pen and washed with several tints.
The book is a production of tho finest
fourteenth century workmanship, and it
Is said the famous block-books of the
fifteenth century are attempted fac
similes of this work. ' The Apocalypsls,
8. Johnnie, Ara Morlendl and a medical
tract make up the volume, which
brought the enormous sum of 950, and
went to a private Individual, much to
the regret of- many publio libraries.
"Queen of the Woods" This may in
deed be said to be the year of the re
vival of the Indian. Not alone in por
trayture, In painting; panels and tanned
skin, but in the vogue ror inaian "tog
gery" In beads and belts and ornaments
galore, but the literature of book and
press have alike been colored by 'Indian
myths and traditions. A purely Indian
magazine Is an accomplished fact An
other published Jointly by Indians and
negro students at Hampton is a valuable
monthly, and many of our papers and
standard magazines have departments
edited by Indians, but as yet we have
few books written by full-blooded In
dians. But In "Queen of the Woods" we
find this accomplished, by one of the
most renowned chiefs of this century.
Simon Pokagon, the author, was the son
of Leopold Pokagon, the chief of the
Pottawatomlea, who. In 1826, at Tippe
canoe, and in 1830, at Chicago, ceded to
the United States over a million acres
of their land, embracing the- ground
upon which the city of Chicago now
stands. Simon was educated at Oberiin
and Twlnsburg; and became a thorough
Greek and Latin scholar. He was the
first red man to visit Lincoln In the
White House. Ha also visited Grant
while president and succeeded In hav
ing the government pay about $200,000,
which was still due his people for their
lands. A portion of the book la taken
up with a biography of this remarkable
man. and many pathetlo incidents ' are

The popularity or prominence of an

personality of the writer cannot "fool
all of the people all of the time" regard

Hay, the author of -Castlllan Days," has
ever been a popular, well loved and lov
able man to every American and possibly
some of his early writing may have
attained popularity on account of the au
thorship being traced to "Lincoln's sec

are adding literary fame to a brilliant
diplomatic career, and as accomplished
as the author is in the latter capacity,
his friends sometimes lament its cur

describing his Journey through- Spain
has given it full play.. Written in. Mr.

the seams strapped with' the latter ma

signed also trims the bottom; of the

There are capeleta and ! revers of rthe
leather as well. - ; 1 ' ;
. A queer - looking round , hat made En
tirely of - leather -' and , trimmed with
heavy taffeta bows and a quill 'matches
the outfit. The heavy cheviots, slbellnes
and golf, cloths are used -for less 'ex
pensive outdoor garments. - In most .In
stances they are-trimmed with the same
material or a silk braid closely stitched
down upon the goods. Models designed
for stout women have 'little - or no dec
oration. V Folds or bands of any i kind
shorten and thicken the figure, especi
ally If placed girth-like, and for this
reason, are avoided by ' ultra-smart
women of' low and corpulent: stature.
For afternoon wear and Informal dress
occasions several .very pretty-toilettes are
shown, with lnce ' and spangled , effects
and white In" the ascendancy; ,'A striking
ly effective gown Is developed In' brpwn
sequins over dotted cream white net
which, in turn, is built over white taf
feta. The spangles. are : applied In rose
design on both bodice and skirt.' There
is a deep -epauletted yoke which is 'a lat
tice of flexible interwoven gold ribbon
braids.-' Around this is ans irregular bar
etta of brown spangled net which also
form'q the sleeves.. The upper. part of the
skirt 1 of chiffon and the lower part Is
formed of a spangled net flounce Re
reath a garniture of dyed Russian .lace.
Mantle effects play an Important part in
the stylos for, the coming year especially
in wraps. These - are 'graceful and can
be' draped about the figure in ao toany
attractive waya -that ; they are sure, to
become popular. Some of the wraps In
liKht silks , have the shoulders draped
'with' close fitting! mantles which fall
around the form in delightful folds. Trlm
Irning'the shoulders are delicious com
binations of sllk' apd 'chlffon- arranRPd

giving such a decided slope that It is al
most Impossible to toll where the arm

It Is to be feared or at least the laun
dresses will , agree with this - decision
that the shoulderette Is to play its part
even on'wash waists next summer, for
the advance models introduced for tho
season at, the-winter resorts show som
distinctly: epaulette effects. , A few even
have stoles of the same material, several
ornamented with 'pearl buttons of straps
ot pique. Other waists are shown pro

Veils for all occaslona are pretty and
unique, but' the traveling veil command
