The author has been a New Pork police reporter for two decade;, and he tells here how tin police oi America have revived the medieval torture chamber to ex- .Urt confessions from prisoners. His book will LJcken you. In places; but do not let anyone tell you that it is overdrawn. It isn't. Nor are the . crimes he describes peculiar to New York. . y The bock is more than just a shocker.

THE WORLD'S TROUBLES SINCE THE ARMISTICE Another harrowing book is "Since Then," by Sir Philip Gibbs. published by Harpers at $3.75. Sir Philip heie tells what has hap- , pened, in the way of misery, suf-, • fering and general human wrong- i . uo.iijj arid pig-hcadedness, since the ' armistice, and if you get to thinking too steadily on some of the things he deicribas you won't sleep . at night. He gets it all in—Russia, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy . and oil the rest—and his cool recital of horrors and stupidities _ almost enough to make one wonder If the peace was not worse than the war. Sir Philip u not altogether un- blaied, in places, but his book U a very good account of po:t-war tri- i - bulstlons and upheavels, for all | that. He tells of famines, pcstilea- , ces, riots, massacres, confused bat- tits and the general uprising of tti* Kingdom of Darkness, and ho is an excellent reporter.
