* * * Next on the list is The Wife of His Youth, by Charles W. Chesnutt. Mr. Chesnutt, as you may not know, has enough negro blood in his veins to make him realize the tragedies that lie before as well as behind the people of his race. This collection contains eight other stories, all touching more or less upon the negro problem. * * *
