PACE '•'•YTiiKviLu.vjAi:iy._ cf_mi!i'i-:k NRWS THE BOOK SURVEY. BY KRUCJE CATTON NEA Strvlce Writer 'The Santa Fe Trail," by R. L>. Duflus, tells one of America's most romantic stories In a trimmer ]x?r- feclly adapted to the subject—by which, as. you may suspect, l mean to say that it Is n very fine book. .:'-In its rather brief but eventful history Ms nation of, ours has ' been criss-crossed' by a good many trails, each bearing a noir.e that Is of the very essence of romance. Think over some of them—the Wilderness Road, the Oregon Trail, the .Overland Route, the. Santa I-'e Trail isn't each one ti magic name, suggesting far-off things and brave, half-foigotten days one! men? - : Of all of, says Mr. Duffiis. the Santa Fe 'mil was the most glamorous. It nol only led venturesome men across a wild, lonely and perilous'country; It took them straight from one civilization to another, from one epoch to another. To go from the Missouri country to New Mexico a century ago was ||den AsW<m to make a trip like Marco Polo's.

Day Is Interesting •In "Doctor Scrccod,"; Helen Ashton-.has made a novel out of one single day iii the life of an English small-town doctor; nnd while you might not expect it of a book constructed on that basis, this novel is wise, penetrating and interesting. .The doctor's day begins with tin? .death of an aged patient. It ends " with the 'birth of a cnild. Between these two events come many small duties,, many brief moments of soliloquy, many contacts with village people. The doctor, musing — not too hopefully—on life, death and the meaning of existence, carries Street, this city, writes: "When n child, I suffered from constipation, ancj my mother gave me Thedford's Black-Draught . II always helped me. Since grown, 1 have continued, to use Black- Draught, as T have never found anything else so good. "I used to have sick li:adache so much, caused from bllllousness nnd constipation, but I don't have It any more, I am thankful to say 'T give it to my children in ;• tea for colds and bllllousness, as I have always found it helpful.
