A FINE STORY of the COWBOY AT HIS BEST.

WITH HOOPS OF STEEL

By FLORENCE FINCH KELLY.

* * * * *

“The friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, grapple them to thy soul With Hoops of Steel.”

“With Hoops of Steel,” is issued in handsome style, with several striking pictures in colors by Dan Smith, by The Bowen-Merrill Company of Indianapolis, a Western publishing house that has a long record of recent successes in fiction.  This firm seems to tell by instinct what the public wants to read, and in Mrs. Kelly’s case it is safe to say that no mistake has been made.  Western men and women will read because it paints faithfully the life which they know so well, and because it gives us three big, manly fellows, fine types of the cowboy at his best.  Eastern readers will be attracted by its splendid realism.—­San Francisco Chronicle.

Mrs. Kelly’s character stands out from the background of the New Mexican plains, desert and mountain with all the distinctness of a Remington sketch or of the striking colored illustrations drawn for the book by Dan Smith.  It is not alone in the superb local coloring or the vivid character work that “With Hoops of Steel” is a notable book.  The incidents are admirably described and full of interest, and the movement of the story is continuous and vigorous.  The action is spirited and the climaxes dramatic.  The plot is cleverly devised and carefully unfolded.  After finishing the book one feels that he has just seen the country, has mingled with the characters and has been a witness of the incidents described.—­Denver Times.

A NOVEL OF EARLY NEW YORK.

PATROON VAN VOLKENBERG

BY HENRY THEW STEPHENSON.

* * * * *

The action of the story begins when New York was a little city of less than 5,000 inhabitants.  The conflict between the law-abiding citizens, led by the Governor, Earl Bellamont, and the merchants, headed by Patroon Van Volkenberg, is at its height.

The Governor has forbidden the port to the free traders or pirate ships, which infested the Atlantic and sailed boldly under their own flag; while the Patroon and his merchant colleagues not only traded openly with the buccaneers, but owned and managed such illicit craft.
