PROBLEM IS FACED
Question of Illegitimacy Frankly
Discussed by Philpotts in
"The Green Alleys"
TYllK"l. Macmlllan Comranr. New York
At first dlnnce It In not quite apparent

fh theme of the iitory the refmnl of
Ortmt Britain to legitimize by aubsequent
narrlaite a child born out of wedlock are
mere pawing iplnode on the avenue of
tiff The author fmrtrayg the human com.
idr Of rustic ttriKlancl faithfully, and the
bitterness and the i-orrow are hut Inci
dental to tho happier community life
"The Oreen Alleys" shows n decided ad
vanca over Its I nmcdlate predecessor. 'Old
Delabole." In many wnvs To begin with,
Mr rhltpotln hfli eliminated the frequent
rfMtltlona which made the novel of the
late country tiresome at timet In the
new story of the hop fields of Kent he has
kept his excellent graphic descriptions to
their proper proportion, and has added nn
active dramatic Interest which was notice,
bly absent In the earlier book These two
improvements In style have combined with
the more Interesting characters presented to
re "The tJreon Alleys" n much wider ap.
peal than "Old Delabole "
Thm nln(. as Is the caso with most of
Mr I'hllpotts's stories. Is simple, and In so
for as the novel Itself In concerned, unim
portant Tho author concerns hlniBelf pri
marily with tho dally lives of bis peoplo.
and has done a great deal to dispel tho
Illusion that rustics are dull folk with no
Ideas beyond their own valloys, or npirt
from their occupations. Tho story deals
with the love of two brother! for each
other and for the same girl. Tho elder,
Nathan Pomfret, Is a natural child, nnd Is
under this additional handicap In the pur
suit of his love
As It happens, this problem of tho Il
legitimate child although occupying many
chapters and being much In ovldenco
throughout the boolt, has nothing to dn
with the development of the story.
Nathan's fino character, and tho lntrlll
fence of most of his neighbors, spare-? him
from the misfortune agnlnst which the au
thor complains so forcibly
Howovor, the agitation against Knglnnd's
refusal to permit a natural child tii be
come legitimate by the marriage of Its
parents serves to Introduce tho most de
lightful character In tho book, Mnrtln Kug
lies. The aged keeper of "Tho lldran
teas," Is always embarking upon nomo
mission which ho known Is foredoomed to
failure First It wan tho Illegitimate chlbl;
then It was to ngltato for a ban on wer
and a revival of nlc, after which he asked
a young girl to marry him, whon he wan
convinced aho would refuse
As always. 1'hllpotts hna drawn his char
acters exceedingly well. Nathan I'omfrot
and his mother, (leorglna Crowns, aro prob
ably tho beat after Kugglcs At tho close
of tho novel tho nuthor expresses, through
tho Indomitable r-'uggles, his contempt for
a government that worships Oradltlon, nnd,
Bioro remnrknblc, considering the mariner
In which tho llrltlsh censors nro muzzling
their literary men, ho scores tho "strnfilng"
of Germans nnd (Jermany because of tho
mistakes of a few rrusalaim.
TAItAK Ill'I.IIA lly Nlcolal Oocnl. Alfred
Kncpf. Nnw York.
Years ago, whon tho Cossacks ravaged
the less-protected frontier towns of Itussln,
and whon hamlets and villages were kept
In constant fear of the approach of these
robber tribes, no records wcro kept of all
their deeds of cruelty nnd valor. Tho
founder of tho modern '.ichool of realism In
Itussla, Nlchol.il Ciogul, putH before us some
of tho hlstoilc facts nnd winds about them
a romance and fantuu) to mako tho fasci
nating tale of "Taras Bulba."
It Is true that these robber trlbpj of I.lt
tlo Hussla mado peaceful life qunko with
their deeds of cruelty nogol adheres to
these facta as tho skeleton of his story, but
ho brings to them a great deal of romance
and Imagination Tho old, gray-haired hero,
Taras Bulba, takes his young sons away
from their schooling to learn tho wicked
ness of the Knzaks nnd to share with him
the plunder nnd booty. Ho sees one of
them turn traitor because of a woman nnd
the other captured by tho enemy. Tho first
he punishes with death and the other la
tortured beforo tho father's eyes Ilulba,
thirsting for revenge, leads another on
slaught nnd finds hlmsolf given over to
the flames as (i punishment for his wick
edness. Gogol allows hrs fantasy to roam freoly
With his vivid Imagination ho puts his
characters through nil manner of trials;
with his keen appreciation for beauty, ha
makes backgrounds to hla plcturo stand
out as powerful descriptions of tho ele
ments of nature, nnd so unique Is his
characterization nnd so pathetically Im
pressive his episodes that, despite Its fan
tastic elements, 'Taras Duba" wilt live. In
the literature of reality.

Admirers of "Between Two Thieves" will

tocracy. It Is trite and sophomorlcally
stilted In a marked degree Tho love scones

excellent portrayal of two characters,
"Midge" rolquhounH nnd Pope Dolllmore,
tho first a "scheming little minx" nnd the
latter a victim of Iidy ilaintreo's self-constituted
matrimonial bureau, who ndopted
for the benefit of her wards the rather
startling motto, "A nun must go on marry
ing until he finds tho person appointed by
I'rovldcnco In tho beginning of things to be

the pet victim of this principle.
