By BRUCE CATTOX KEA Service Wrllcr and liien; but "Crucibles," *liilc it presents Its complicated facts clear-- - ^sj-:-e.-rr K^*^^^ fieri. There is a liberal education in these two books. "Crucibles" leads yon down chemistry's amazing path, frcm the dark laboratories of the medieval alchemists to rcoms of men like Thomson and Mosely, who discovered an infinite new universe concealed within the sub-microscopic alom. "The Great Astronomers" traces the development of astronomical- knowledge frcm the starry-capped astrologer;* 11 stands head and shoulders above tlie general run of such books and becomes, not only nil excellent slory about (he war, but high-class Ht- leiaturc as well. Henry Williamson wrote 11, which guarantees its merit In advance. It is not a long novel; bill U has more power llian a dozen o( Us brothel's, and I know of no oilier book lluil presents the brutal senseless, destructive nature ot modern war better than this ono does. John Bullock, private soldier, hero of Ihc book, becomes more than an individual, lie is Use common soldier incarnate; tlie common soldier cf all armies. \vho rcsixmded o something fine in Ills own soul nnd endured unspeakable inlamles, .tnspcakab!e siillering, unspeakable (iisillusloiimenl to serve an eiul thai grows less and less clear as lite long years pass. At ihe cud ot the book John Bullock Is slumping around London on one leg, the other one having been left along Ihe Somine somewhere. London Ls celebralisig the armistice; and a sllk-hatlcd, pompous cctebrator steps up lo John Bullock and remarks thai "England won't forget you boys." To which Bullock remarks simply, "We arc England." Thai remark—a trine too apt, perhaps, to eomc from tlie ordinary soldier—Is deeply, terribly true; and it is the especial virtue ol Ihis hook that H mak.?s you realize ihe lad. The book Is offered by E. P. Dutton and Co., and sells at $2.00. 50 Pages of This Novel Were (juilc Enough "Park Avenue" is by Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr., in person; and I can think of no oilier reason on cartli for its having been published at all. TIw book Is a slory of high 50- ciely—a pililess expose, very likely, mitten by one who grew up in the Diddle ot It nil; but. It, Is, 1 mist, TS poorly-constriiclcd a novel as hcse tired eyes will ever look upon. Every hackneyed idiom, every shopworn cliche iu the lexicon of third- rate p.uthors is called into play, anil f you can struggle past the first 50 pages you are a far better man I han I am- I couldn't. j The Macaulay Company is pub-1 shiag the book, and the price Is Manila Watch Dog Mourns Death of His Canine Pal MANILA, Ark.

About a year ago Slicdd concelv- eUl the l(k><i of tii-iiiR a pair of German flwllcc dogs as companion in Ills lonely walks through the dark alleys ol Hie loivn. He borrowed Tex from Mrs. Mae 1'lorre. locnl posuuistress, niul bouglil Hex. 'IVx was tlireo mouths old, and flex luout two wcuks, Tex trc:itcU Hex us u big brother would do.

In (lie hands of the Ivio lifts the safety nnd the welfare ol Ihc town rested. Never was the wcuMicr loa cold or loo wet to keep them from patrolling the streets until d.iy- llght. Paid to protect the lives nnd. properly of the citizens, llinr were always to be found ul ilu'lr posts of duty. Shcdd had the two dogs so »•<•! trained that, he could make hi: round in half time.

Tex followed him and set on his luimclK's watching Hex. Perhaps he understood thai something wns the maim- wild his pnl. bill lie didn't inaki 1 any noise. When Shcdd slarl- i'd away he noticed llial .rfx was haiphig. He stooped lo examine Uie dog's paw, and found it covered with b!oo;l from a deep gash. He touk the womuled imlimil home and corded Ills loot. When he came back ui the illuming after work lie found lhal Hex had died, for he had icrkcd the cord down. Tex had al. ready gone away.

Tlie publishing house of Simon and Schusler offers graphic proof cl Ihis statement \vith two mealy summer books; "Crucibles," by Bernard Jalle, and "The Great Astronomers," by Dr. Henry .Smith Williams. There are two ways about il;ju owl , to the Eddingtons, Elnslciiis these books aro just naturally ex- nnd JcanSr wh(> pusn , 3() the borders citing. "Crucibles" lells of Hie ot infinity back beyond the limits world's great chemists and Ihe of human thought, thinks they have done; the other book, as its title indicates, discusses the wurk of the astronomers; each OIK lends you up to Hie brink of mysteries so profound that they make your head swim. I think "Crucibles" is the better booh of the wo. "The Great Astronomers" sutlers a bit from the author's elfort to make it "popular" ami becomes over-slinptlnV'd now $2. IF THEY.
