Among the beet of the particularly fine additions to make their appearance Monday at the public library are new faces to smile under the Literature and Language title. It is expected that there will be a lively little contest among those who follow books over the possession of Shaw's "Fanny's First Play," a piece of the modern classics which has spread a wave of comment over the country. In the same volume are excellent work on Parents and Children, "Misalliance" and "The Dark Lady of the Sonnets." Kennedy's play "The Idol Breaker," and Percy Mackaye's quaint and beautiful "Sanctuary, a Bird Masque," together with many other excellent new plays come under the same classification. Another book that will be popular with Roosevelt admirers Is one under Biography, "Theodore Roosevelt, an Autobiography." in which the eagle's tall is pulled. Tagore is again represented by "The Post Office." a play, and David Grayson with another of his restful books, "The Friendly Road." Bennett, A u s t i n and De Morgan are a m o n g the popular writers of fiction, whose works appear In the new list. MONDAY^ 8 TO 9:30 A. M.
