has sales that approach a million copies,
it in not necessary for tho amateur physi

This would bo a casual criticism by a

"My System," or, as Its sub-tltlo ex
plains, "Fifteen Minutes' Work a Day for

due to the fact that the exercises are de

Tho author Is not an extremist. He
does not believe that diets, or cold baths,

Everyone fell in love with Miranda when she first
appeared in "Marcia Schuyler". Her naturalness and
irrepressible spirit made all of us wish that she might
sometime have her own romance. Here it is. Miranda
falls in love. Who could imagine it? Yet she does, and
with a man whoso life is linked with that great move
ment, the occupation of Oregon when threatened by
English rule. It is a stirring tale with lively incidents
on every page and Miranda with her delicious common
sense wit is a joy forever. This is the kind of story
that brings spring-time to the heart and inspires old
and young to a more wholesome outlook on life.

bv Montague Glass In sovcrnl of tho
stories which go to make up "The Com

and Its lorollary that stoiles of a type

Tho titles of the various stories, both In
tho contents tnble and nt their beginning,
uro cnllcd "chapters," though they aro
absolutely unrelated. The words "and
other stories" do not appear on tltlo
page or clsowhere. Many of Mr. Ol.u'V
admirers would like to see his undenlabln

but this Is not that noel, for It Is
not n novel, but n collection of short
Mighty clover short stories, most of
'em. Though the names are not Mawruss
nnd Abo. the people beneath them are
blood iclatlons always, replitns some

ciples of tho cloaks nnd suits trade form
the basis and furnish the atmosphere for
most of thorn, but In one. "Hudolph.
Where Have You Beon?" Mr. Glass
prospects along a new lead, where tho
ore scorns to assay piofltably It would
bo agrccablo to have some more of these
studies of his rnco under theatrical con
ditions. In this ono story he seems to
havo as firm a grip on tho palaver and
ways of 42d street and Broadway as
he assuredly has on those of Grand,
Cnnal and Hlvlimton sttcets. not to
mention Upper 3d avenue In tho "Hronlx."
Almost invariably Mr. Glass writes
tolerantly and understanding- of the
foibles, vanltlea, business prnctlrei and
shrewdness of his peoplo and with duo
appreciation of the genuinely sterling
qunlltles of tho Jewish race. Tho "In
variably" was absolute In "Potash and
Perlmutter." In "The CnmpntitlMt
Nephew" series of tales certain unlovely
traits are needlessly, though only cas
ually, uncovered, and onn story, "Caveat

that, though diabolical In Its Ingenuity,
Is distinctly dlsogreeable In final Im

Another Anonymous Novel
Tho tide of anonymity la toward flood
again. After Basil King puzzled most
roaders with "The Inner Shrlno" came
a multitude of bonks of concealed au
thorship, concerning which the public be
trayed absolutely no rurloslty. Then, a
teMPon ago, "Home," by doorgo Agnew
Chamberlain, reached a considerable suc
cess through clover exploiting of tho nu
thor's anonymity. Ergo,, busy typewrit
ers of nameless authors began beating
nut romances and rival publishers, fol
lowing tho lend of nn achloved success,
begnn pintlng of the marvelous quality or
their respectlio nnonymlsts, each of
I'ourse, tho flneit In nnon.vmlty.
The latest of them Is Iho covert author
of "The Sea of God" (Heart's Interna
tional Library Company, New York)
"The publishers ale not permitted at
present to disclose the name of tho au
thor." Whv? Tho author has nothing
to be nshnmed of; the hook Is not so bad
ns that. The publishers certainly havo
nothing very wonderful in reserve; tho
book Is not good enough for that.
The story li a good craftemanllko piece
of llctlon. Characterization of the ten
derly rented Southern girl who Is adrift
upon the "sens of God," Is well done.
Tho plot ia lather routine, but nicely
adjusted The stvlo Is agreeable. But

Thrills for Heroine
In Humdrum Tale
Notwithstanding that the heroine Is
thrlco rescued ftom peril of death In the
first three chnptcis, "Spray on tho Win
dows" (Gcorgo II. Doran & Co., New
York), must he described ns a story of
humdrum English life. Tho author, J. K.
rsuckrose. while not duplicating the
gaiety that appeared In her previous
work, hn3 written entertainingly and has
provided somo excellent character draw
ing. One rather wishes that tho semi
haunted houpc hail been made use of In
a more conscientious manner and that
the old ladv who could not come to any
decision without astrological aid had been
a hit more prominent. Btlll Anne, tho
heroine, who finds mntrlmony has Its
"fors nnd ngnlnsts," herself Is sufficiently
remarkable to make the book unusual.
Any oune woman who would deliber
ately throw oer a man of wealth and
Mntlon for a poverty stricken creature
with a prison record Is hound to appear
lemnrkahle 111 this ngo and generation,
even in humdrum England.
