THE WIFE OF HIS YOUTH AND OTHER STORIES OF THE COLOR LINE. By Charles W. Chestnutt. With illustrations by Clyde O. De Land. Boston and New York. Houghton, Mifflin & Co. Bound in cloth, illustrated, 323 page. Price, $1.50.
This is a collection of short stories by the author of "The Conjure Woman." The volume consists of nine short stories, most of which have appeared in magazines from time to time, and which deal with the question of the "color line."
"The Wife of His Youth," and "The Bouquet" are very pathetic little sketches.
