Hence, he leads the reader through a really delightful browsing over the whole field of human aspiration for soul expression and satisfaction.-San Francisco Chronicle.

By WILL S. WOODHULL It is the contention of the author that "man is ever questing greatness. He vigorously protests against being insignificant.” The satisfaction of that quest is to be found in God. In Him, and Him alone, one can find completeness. “Above all,” says the author, “Christianity is the religion of a Person. Sometimes we forget this most obvious fact and come to think it consists of Articles of Religion, of Longer or Shorter Catechisms, of Confessions of Faith and proceedings of councils." ***Many will find in The Master Quest” a fresh discussion of some of the most important truths connected with our religious life and will be helped into a clearer appreciation of these eternal verities.--Zion Herald.

By W. L. GEORGE "BLIND ALLEY" is a long novel, dealing with political and social conditions in war time. Four years of war have wrought a change in the womanhood of England, and it is this change that Mr. George mirrors in this big, fearlessly written novel of a typical English family in war time. The Chicago Daily News said of BLIND ALLEY":

'A wonderful book. A deep sympathy and understanding of men and
women. A cynical idealism-ideals of the highest,, cynical because George
knows they are too beautiful to be possible. Blind Alley' is an
extraordinary novel. But it is more than that. It is a cry in the night.'

BIOGRAPHY Richard Cobden; The International Man.

By J. A. Hobson. Illustrated. Henry Holt & Co., New York. Richard Cobden is known throughout the English-speaking world as the great apostle of international free trade. He was one of the chief founders of England's modern financial and industrial supremacy because, by his almost single-handed overthrow of the Corn Laws and thus of the English protective system, he opened the way for that world trade which during the last sixty years has been the foundation of England's world power. The present volume is not a biography in the accepted sense of that term, but is a collection of letters, with comment and interpretation, that display the various phases of Cobden's international but practical mind. To the student of political science Mr. Hobson's book will be of both use and interest because of the light it sheds, at the present crisis in world relationships, on the progress of English thought and policies in international affairs.

Introduction by Charles W. Eliot, LL.D. G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York. This author, well known as a newspaper correspondent, enjoys the advantage of years of residence in China, Russia, and the Balkan States. His opinions, whether as to present military and political situations or as to future foreign policies, are clearly stated. In this latest volume from his pen he describes the methods of the Bolsheviki, in which we clearly see that, instead of a liberation for Russia, there was only plunder for Lenine and Trotsky. Mr. Moore's conclusion is that “what Russia could have been, she might still be," for she has able men who will come to the front if opportunity be given. To this end “ it is necessary for the Allies to devise the means to help them, not excluding the use of armed forces.” There is little doubt that, contrary to the President's view," the pressure of Allied and American forces in Russia would help to stabilize the country quickly.” Passing from the reconstruction of Russia to the reconstruction of Europe, the author would also see America play a leading part, for we have not only “supreme power and wealth,” but, what is
