"THE 'LORNA DOONE' OF AMERICAN FICTION."-The Interior.
By IRVING BACHELLER
WILLIAM DEAN HOWELLS
"I have read Eben Holden' with a great joy in its truth and freshness. You have got into your book a kind of life not in literature before, and you have got it there simply and frankly. It is as pure as water and as good as bread.'
MARGARET E. SANGSTER
"It is sweet with the smell of the balsam. Whenever one finds a real book he or she owes it to the rest to tell them about it that they may read and enjoy it too. So I pass the word along: Read Eben Holden.'
MARY E. WILKINS
"It seems to me a most remarkable production, way and way ahead of David Harum,' which is not to be mentioned in comparison with it. . Eben Holden' is simply adorable. I have not read a book in many a day by an American author which has so pleased me.
AMELIA E. BARR
"I congratulate you on having given the world a pure, strong, natural story. It is as far above 'David Harum' as noonday is above dawn."
EDMUND CLARENCE STEDMAN
"It is a forest-scented, fresh-aired, bracing, and wholly American story of country and town life. If, in the far future, our successors wish to know what were the real life and atmosphere in which the country folk that saved this nation grew, loved, wrought, and had their being, they must go back to such true and zestful and poetic tales of 'fiction' as 'Snow Bound' and 'Eben Holden.

Short Story Writing TANGLED FLAGS
By CHARLES RAYMOND BARRETT, Ph.B.
12mo, cloth, $1.00.
A practical treatise on the art of the short story, designed to present concretely the rules of that art. It is a working manual, not a collection of untried theories. It tells how to write a story with reference to the requirements of contemporary editors.
"Both an interesting and a useful book. While it is concerned with the special application of rhetorical principles to a particular department of literary art, it carries a general application that all literary workers may profit by, as in its chapters on Titles, Style, and the Labor of Authorship."
"The book can hardly fail to be of much practical assistance to the novice in short story writing."-Rev. of Reviews. "The volume is one which cannot fail to help the ambitious young story teller."-Toledo Blade.
By ARCHIBALD C. GUNTER
