"The Wife of His Youth, and other Stories of the color Line," by Charles W. Chesnutt, with illustrations by Clyde O. Deland. These short stories demonstrate the fact that much sorrow and needless suffering has been caused by the withdrawal of the "Color line," and the mingling of the races. Some of the stories are pathetic in the extreme, the more so because of the innocence of the actors in the great drama of human life, fettered by the injustice of their fellow men. (Houghton, Mifflin & company, New York. For sale by Mauro & Wilson, Burlington. Price $1.50.)
