A Yellow Journalist.

By Miriam Michelson, Author of “In the Bishop’s Carriage,” etc.  Illustrated. 12mo.  Ornamental Cloth, $1.50.

This novel has the true newspaper thrill in it from beginning to end.  The intense desire to “cover” one’s assignment completely and well is brought out in the midst of the melodramatic atmosphere in which a modern newspaper woman must live.  The stories are all true to life, and mixed with the excitement there is a wealth of humor and pathos.

“There is a dash about ‘A Yellow Journalist’ that exhilarates like a fresh breeze on a sharp winter morning.”—­Chicago Record-Herald.

“The book is bright and entertaining.”—­Minneapolis Tribune.

“There are just a few writers who have succeeded in reducing to paper the atmosphere of a newspaper office, and since the appearance of ’A Yellow Journalist,’ Miriam Michelson must be numbered among them.”—­The Bookman.

“Miss Michelson’s work has found great favor.  The stories contained in this book are characteristic.”—­Philadelphia Public Ledger.

“Only one with the genuine journalistic instinct, who has agonized over a story and known the ecstacy of a ‘beat’ and the anguish of being beat, can write of news-gathering as Miss Michelson does.  But she has other good qualities in addition to these—­a good dramatic instinct, a piquant humor, and a knowledge of human nature.  The fourteen chapters of ’A Yellow Journalist’ are mighty interesting reading.”—­Baltimore News.
