j "Small Craft." A book that contains many delightful things is "Small Craft." by C. Fox Smith. The author is a woman, and it seems all the more strange that she should have written this volume of rollicking sea songs. In which is th sound and the smell of the salt water. She has a gift of rhythm that is contagious. One knows that the most unlettered of men could understand and love these sonss. could sing them while the deck heaved beneath their feet, for they are real sailor chanty - J. Then there ar songs of the home folk, who wait and pray for the lads at aea: sones 01 the sailor ashore ana the people and the experiences he meets: songs of the great Canadian northwest, where the ' river Fraser runs. on: of the prairies and the life that is passing from them. Miss Fox Smith is a genuine poet, whose volume is full of charming and ap pealing things, all written with a sense of humor, of the inexhustlble lor of llvinsr and working:, even if on be only "small craft" on the world sea. (New York: George H. Doran Company.)
