By Arthur Train
"First we had 'Mr. Britling Sees It Through.' Then followed Miss Sinclair's 'Tree of Heaven,' and now, The Earthquake,' a worthy third, but by no means least member of an immortal trio. Indeed, Mr. Train's book may be the most impressive and effective of the three. . . ."- New York Tribune.
YOU NO LONGER COUNT
By René Boylésve
Translated from the French by Louise Seymour Houghton
This novel-a revelation of the war and its effects on the individual through the experiences of a young French widow burst into celebrity in Paris on the instant of publication. There have been many stories which pictured the effect of war on English life. This translation of Boylésve's work gives the first opportunity to see war's transforming influence on life in France.
Odette's transformation is a story of intense personal interest, and as a whole this novel gives a new conception, a more intense realization of the war than has been hitherto conveyed.

JOHN GALSWORTHY'S FIVE TALES
"Galsworthy's poignant characterization lives in 'Five Tales,' and with it the artist's deep feeling and power." -New York Times.
"A Stoic' especially is a memorable and lifelike portrait, and delightfully interesting, but no more so than the subordinate characters in this excellent story. The usual criticism of a volume of short stories, that they do not hold the interest like a long novel, does not apply to these Five Tales." - New York Globe. $1.50 net
