THE SILENCE OF MRS. HARROLD

By SAMUEL M. GARDENHIRE

Author of "Lux Crucis"

Out of the "silence" of a woman who marries with the understanding that her husband will never seek to know her past develops an intricate and baffling plot, rivalling the stories of Charles Reade. Wall Street, the great powers of finance, the whirl of Metropolitan gaiety, give life and movement to these pages. Mr. Gardenhire not only tells a beguiling tale, but from his insight and intimate knowledge of the secret ways of trusts and big corporations involves his story in new, ingenious complications that will strike home to every American. Post 8vo, Ornamented Cloth, $1.50.

THE

SLANDERERS

By WARWICK DEEPING

The star-crossed lovers" whose romance fills these pages are drawn into the toils of a sordid, gossiping community where the tongue of slander does its worst, bringing about an engrossing situation in an unusually strong plot. The tale takes a poetic turn among English fields and hedge-rows, and readers who have delighted in Mr. Deeping's former books will here find the same charm of style and story that marked those romances of mediæval days. Cloth, Post 8vo, $1.50.

THE

PROBATIONER

By HERMAN WHITAKER The scenes of these stories are laid among the snow-covered and blizzard-swept regions of the great Canadian Northwest. They are rugged, virile tales, like the wild country in which they are placed, and all have a picturesque touch.
