REVIEWS OF RECENT FICTION
"The Happy Highways,'" by Storm
Jameson. A fascinating plot, a story
of int>l^cct, ideas most vitlid—these
phrases characterize Miss Jameson's
best novel. The author attacks con-
ventionality in an unhesitating man-
ner, fearing neither old adages nor
traditions. She is a ne^ writer but
she promises to take ,n leaifilig^place
in F.nglish literature.
"The Splendid Folly," by Margaret
Fedler. An appealing story of se-
crecy, politics, and misunderstandings-
"Mox Errington held her 'with the
fierce possessive grip of primitive
man claiming the chosen woman as
his mate,' but with all—he had an un-
utterable tenderness' and he 'would
risk his immortal soi,il for Diana
Quentin' whom he married with the
warning that there was one secret
he must keep from her. She soon
found just cause for suspicion of infi-
delity, but liis supposed mistress
proved to be merely a cousin, a dis
guised duchess whom he was helping
politically. Diana's splendid folly was
to renounce the career of a prima
donna on discovering that Errington
was really a nobleman." (Bookman')
While the plot is old, the story is
very clever and entertaining. Tt is
"The Sisters-in-Law," by Gertrude
Atherton. Alexina Groom, the
charming daughter of one of San
Francisco's oldest families falls in
love with her sister's sweetheart. Up-
on her victory the story ends. The
social struggles of Martimer Dwight,
Alexina's husband, is the best feature
of this story.
"The Sisters-in-Laws" is not the
finest of Gertrude Atherton's books.
Tn detail it is sloppy, but it is a big
novel in every other sense.
"The Mysterious Rider," by Zane
Grey. One of the'•'author's most
thrilling stories of Western life. It
tingles with fiery enthusiasm, hair
.breadth escapes and romantic adven
tures. It is very entertaining for
those "who prefer literary gin to liter-
ary champagne." (Bookman").
"The White Comrade," by Robert
Haven Schauffler. For those who
enjoy beautiful thoughts and imagery,
graceful rhythm and rich forms, this
minstrel poem will be very pleasing.
Perhaps it is not very compact, but on
the whole it is a very dainty, inter-
esting, and unusual piece of work.
RESULT OF AN S. M. K's.
If to die were to come back roses
And be plucked by a hand divine,
Then arranged in a vase so cozy
And be put in the S. M. K. hall

What is your idea of an absent-
One who forgets his watch and
then takes it out of his pocket to sec
if he has time to po back for it.
If to die were to come back music

Then death would be sweet to a

If to die were to be the season
When the S. M. K's, joyous and
Among themselves were in session,
Ah! W'h-y should I. grieve to stay?
If to die were to come back a robin
And could sing with my own sweet
And comfort hearts if they were sob-
As T sat on the window sill;
If to die were to feel the velvet
Of an S. M. K. lip bent o'er,
And kiss and croon to me, a floweret
Ah! Why should I fear the door?
If to die were to come back a sun-
And I could, in some way of mine,
Help the S. M. K's path with bright-
ness to gleam
As they still farther and higher to

And forever see the S. M. K's days
