OTHER NEW NOVELS
"Rftlclency" the efficiency which makes
,, man all-powerful In his youth, but which
(Trips fever tighter like a relentless vise
unlit It holds him helpless In his prime
Is' the characteristic of American llfo at
tacked by Sidney L. Nyburg In his ex
cellent novel, "The Conquest" (J. B., Lip
plncott Company, Philadelphia). It Ms a
' daring expose of the Inhumanity of the
adage, "Nothing succeeds like success,
"and of the cruelty of the 20th century
doctrine to crush the last drop of llfo out
of one's own soul and out of other men's
bodies In order to gain power.
The plot Is consistently doveloped, and
simple; perhaps tho author made It pur
posely so In order that tho psychology and
philosophy of John Howard, tho lawyer
hero, might stand out the moro clearly.
Howard, as soon ns ho entered the legal
profession, determined to "get to tho top."
Anything that stood In tho way of his am
bition not only to lead tho legal field, but
to domlnato tho entire financial nnd com
, merclnl life of his city. Baltimore, had
to die. It mattered not whother the pcr-
; son were his legal opponent or his fiancee.
Ho cut hlmsclr free from her as coldly
' as he wrecked tho llfo of tho other.
Finally, when ho was only ono step re
moved from attaining his Ideal, he mar
ried a woman ho did not love In order to
gain tho momentary prestlgo that would
give him tho power ho craved. He con
trolled Baltimore, but a. trail of ruined
lives and broken hearts blazed his path
way to "success." Suddenly, Ills own
shattored llfo ndded tho last mllestono;
he became a physical wreck although his
mind was as at It3 best
"The Conquest" has as a subtitle, "One
Lawyer's Llfo," and Is divided into three
parts: Tho Plan of Battle, A. D. 1892; Tho
Heat of Battle, A. D. 189S. and Tho Spoils
of Battle, A. D. 1913. Tho lovo clement
Is purely Incidental. This Is Mr. Nyburg's
first novel and contains much food for
thought. About a year ago he published
his first book, "The Final Verdict," six
short stories about lawyers.
Tho few defects In Rtvln tintlp,1 ihnn
have been almost entirely obviated In tho
present book. Perhaps the best that can
bo done now Is to repeat a fow sentences
of what this reviewer wrote at the time
"The Final Verdict" appeared.
"Sir. Nyburg's pre-eminent qualification
Is his splondld monologue. (Ono now adds
soliloquy). The character delineation is
as fine as has beon found in present day
The U-boat war which Germany and
Austria are waging on Oreat Hrltnln, and
the controversy In which the United
States has become Involved on account of
the Lusltanla and Arabic, victims of tho
undersea raiders, lend peculiar timeliness
to "Tho Story of tho Submarine" (tho
Century Company, Now York), by Farn
ham Bishop, who Is remembered for his
concise nccount of American work In tho
Canal Zone, through "Panama, Past and
Tho origin of the submarine, nnd Its de
velopment Into a terrible nnd spectacular
agent of destruction, are chronologically
presented. Most well-read persons nre
awaro that the perfection of tho sub

Hollnnd nnd Simon Lake. They know
too, perhaps vaguely from their school his
tories, of the experiments made during the
Civil War to practicnllze the device of

Interesting footnotes In the "Fourteen

Thl Incident Is only ono of tho many
which Sir. Bishop has nssemblcd In his
first-hand nnd first-rate volume. Tho
British, German nnd Ittisilnn experiments
aro fully described. Such quaint early
efforts ns Cornelius Van Drchel's devlco

described, nnd tho vain endeavors of Hob

marine Inventor by interesting govern
ments In his submnrlno projects are
noted Then comes a consideration of tho
part tho U-boats have played In the pres.
Tho book, which Is Illustrated with
threescore drawings and photographs, Is
comprehensive In n concise way, It Is
valuable for two reasons, tho rapid his

marine and tho pictorial series showing

Tho title character Is Just that a vil
lage character who has a shrewd wit and
a pretty way of putting It Into words. She
Is as full of pithy sayings as Polonlua or
Bartlett's Book of Familiar Quotations,
but she Is not so dull as the former, or so
"reference-bookish" as the latter. She
does not hesitate to speak out her mind,
and her mind Is rather well made up on
many things. It Is a homely sort of mind,
full of cheerfulness and quaint philosophy.
About two years ngo a curious book of
octavo shape and paper covers mndu Its
way Into this country from England. Its
contents wero ns unconventional as Its
make-up. Moreover, It wns entitled
"Blast" (John Lano Company, New York),
a name In Itsolf calculated to arouso In
terest. Tho first volume of "Blast" created
a thirst for more, and now It has come.
"Blast" apparently Is tho outward ex
pression of tho Inward rage that n certain
group of artistic nnd literary robels In
London feels for all that Is stupid nnd
lnano In British life. They call them
selves "vortlclsts," or upholders of the
"vortex" theory of art and existence.
Their movement is an offshoot of the artis
tic rovolt that began with the impression
ists, who have been followed by tho futur
ists, cubists, Imaglsts, etc.
This second number of "Blast" lacks
tho gaiety of tho first. Evidently the war
has cast a pall over the English artistic
world that will not nass In a dav. But
tho new book contains many harmonious
drawings and much clever writing, often
marked hy slncero feeling. One of the
most fascinating things In tho volume Is
a letter from Gaudler-Brszka, the sculp
tor, who afterward was killed In a charge
at Neuvlllo-St. Vaast. Such a letter Is
better than many Bermons against militarism.

Tho story has a real I'oe-llke twist to It.
It tells of a girl, left an orphan and sent

etc. 12mo. Board, lM net,
Mr. Dreiser In this book of one
act plays opens up an entirely new
Held of dramatic possibilities. In the
"natural" plays ha has written the
first truly realistic dramas to come out
of America ; ln the "supernatural"
plays he Introduces a deep and novel
element into dramatic effort. They
are based on the broad foundation of
philosophy, and contain what may be
called, for lack of a more imMfl
term, the fourth dimension.
CHESTERTON on the WAR

Author of "tlerettes." "Orthodoxu.'' etc
IZmo. Cloth. St. 00 nit. '
Brilliant, political, historical, social,
and topical literary essays. "A lut
of England's crimes is furnished, but
they are not those of which she is
accused by the Germans. Among the
best chapters Is The Awakening of
Kngland', and among the finest writing
is the last chapter, on the 'Battle of
the Marne. It Is good to read Mr.
Chesterton once more, and to read him
at hla best." Phtla. i'ubllo Ledger.
