HUNTING Opening Chapters of
MYSORE GALSWORTHY'S
TIGERS with

“THE WHITE MONKEY
KERMIT The author takes us into a situation of compelling interest at

once, weaving in his atmosphere and setting as he goes, build-
ROOSEVELT ing his design around the figure of Fleur, desirable, elusive,

capricious in the swirl of modern life. A peculiarly modern
love incident involving a disillusioned poet reveals much of
the character of this young married woman of to-day.

“Rintintin,” by Thomas Boyd
The first of a series of short stories under the general title of
“Points of Honor" centres around one of those strange little
French dolls which made the American soldier having one the
object of envy by all his fellows. The author of “Through the
Wheat" has applied his realistic method to this incident, which
shines like gold-or is it tinsel ?-in the midst of mud and war.

Reparations Blunder Laid to England

Germany's ability to pay was estimated too highly, says Ray-

mond Recouly, French soldier and editor. Lloyd George led
Clemenceau and both went into the ditch. France's remark-
able efforts at reconstruction and what the future holds are
told in Reconstruction in France.

KERMIT ROOSEVELT
Stirring adventures in the jun-
gles of India which Captain
Roosevelt and his wife recently
experienced, written with the
verve and originality which
are characteristic of the Roose-
velt genius. This is the first of
two articles, published under
the alluring title of In the
Land Where the Elephants
Are. Both are illustrated by
remarkable photographs taken
by Captain Roosevelt, who was
the photographer on the ex-
peditions with his father in
Africa and Brazil.

Whiting Williams Points to the Straws
that show a wind which blows good to Europe. Many ele-
ments are combined in this moral and mental reconstruction.
And these elements quite possibly mean danger to American
business, he shows in Boycotting the Dollar.
