The Wife of his Youth

There are many problems in "The Wife of His Youth," a volume of short stories by Charles W. Chesnutt, not alone those presented by the relations of the black and white races, but many that arise in the progress of the people liberated from bondage only thirty-six years ago. Mr. Chesnutt writes with no little power, and though there is sentiment and pathos in all his sketches, they ring true in nearly every instance. Published by Houghton, Mifflin & Co., New York; price, $1.50.
