SCRIBNER'S FOR 1921
My Brother THEODORE ROOSEVELT
BY CORINNĘ ROOSEVELT ROBINSON THE SISTER OF COLONEL ROOSEVELT has spoken scores of times, particularly before young children, about her brother and his views on the right kind of good Americans. Now she has set down
. the intimate personal recollections of her brother from nursery days until he became the leading citizen of the world. “I want to write m own recollections of him,” says Mrs. Robinson, “our talks together all his life our personal letters. My view of him in the book is THE GREAT SHARER, giving his life and the best that was in him to his family, his friends, and the country.

The narrative will be fully illustrated with pictures made from the films.

BOOKS for Christmas
THE REBIRTH OF KOREA The Reawakening of the People: Its Causes and the Outlook By HUGH HEUNG-IVO CYNN, Principal Pai Chai Haktang, Seoul, Korea “The entrance into English literature, and before the American public, of the Korean who wields such a facile and trenchant pen, is an event of no small importance in the literary and political, as well as the religious world. One of the elements of strength and durability is the chastened self-control of the writer. The book is bound to be an epoch-maker and to bring the pressure of the world's enlightened opinion to bear upon Japan."-Wm. Elliot Griffis. Ilustrated, Net, $1.50, postpaid.
THE BRIDE OF MISSION SAN JOSE
A Tale of Early California
By John Augustine Cull A Story of early Spanish Mission days. At once there is a vision of pale gray walls, chiming bells, scarlet bloom-and romance. And here they all are, woven into a charming love story, together with interesting light on the strife between England and America over California. Frontispiece. Net, $2.00, postpaid.
You've heard how a certain young lady decided not to send her friend a book because “she already had one." Well, thank goodness, she represents a very small minority. More and more it is being recognized that there is something about a book that makes it an ideal gift. Not just any book, of course, any more

The wisely chosen book should be truly personal, -typical of both the tastes of giver and receiver. It need not be expensive cloth covers hold as great a message as did ever tooled morocco—but it should carry with it something of the spirit of the giver.
To help you in your Christmas selection, we are submitting from our extensive lists several titles representative of the wide range of Abingdon subjects.
A REEL OF RAINBOW
By F. W. Boreham Another Boreham book. Original, epigrammatic, challenging. Fully maintains the author's wide reputation as a thinker and writer of unusual versatility and power. Net, $1.75, postpaid.
MY NEIGHBOR THE WORKING MAN
By James Roscoe Day, Chancellor of Syracuse University "A vigorous, straight from the shoulder book, written by one who was himself a working man. Americanism of the old, individualistic, successful type, whose message is not yet outgrown. A fearless exposure of the sinister fores underlying certain forms of social unrest. Labor unions are offered much wholesome advice.”—The Expositor, Cleveland. Net, $2.50, postpaid.
IS CHIVALRY DEAD?
(Continued) and fair play, a number of points ought to be stated.
1. Local comparisons are not justified. Your correspondent" has heard that in the far West ” the male of the species yet reains his gallantry. Every once in a while Come one declares that the worst manners re to be found in New York, or San Franisco, or Chicago, or whatever place may pe under discussion. I have not found that any section of the country has a monopoly of either boorishness or chivalry; nor are ustoms greatly different on either side Sf the water.
2. There has been no deterioration. There was as much rudeness in the old days of the horse cars as there is now in 1920.
3. Some men honestly believe that if adies are obliged to stand the responsiSility is with the transportation companies, vhich are under moral obligation to proride a seat for every passenger accepted. Chey feel that as long as men will yield heir seats the injustice of overcrowded ars will continue. I hear
discusions among my traveling companions, and ( find that some men actually hold the opinion that, though they may feel very incomfortable, they are really
, rendering he public a
service by retaining their seats.
4. A far greater number believe that it 8 impossible to lay down a rule of univeral application. Here are some questions : Should an old man give his seat to a young voman? Should a sick man give his seat o a healthy woman? Should a man exausted by a day of hard labor give his eat to a woman who evidently never lifts ner finger for self-support or human serrice? If a negative answer is given to hese suggestions, the whole matter is made conditional. Who shall say just vhere the line is to be drawn?
5. Very regretfully I have to say that come men have lost the impulse to genersity, because so many women show not he slightest appreciation of the courtesy und sacrifice involved in seat surrender. Time after time I have seen men, weary und bundle-laden, rise, touch their hats, nd give their places to women who have nade not the least acknowledgment by word or even by friendly glance. Should here be no feminine grace corresponding - masculine chivalry? It is not very enouraging to a man who, for reasons of ealth, needs a seat to receive, upon giving t up, no more consideration than if he nad been an insect that had chosen to y away. The cool assumption that in all ases the mere matter of sex gives one erson rather than another a right to a seat 3 exasperating in the extreme. The other ay I saw a young working boy politely ive place for a queen of fashion from the Back Bay. It might have meant a great Leal for him to receive the merest nod rom that radiant woman. But no nod was ouchsafed. Possibly it meant a great Leal to him not to receive it a great eal that his fellow-citizens may some day egret.
Perhaps the lady from Missouri, if she eads these lines, will

SOME ASPECTS OF INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIANITY
Mendenball Lectures, Fifth Series
By John Kelman " John Kelman correlates the problems of modern Christianity with the need of constructive statesmanship in international relations. Kelman points out that the Christian ideal of the brotherhood of man is of necessity an international ideal ; he also shows how this sense of universal brotherhood is not inimical to patriotism, any more than love of country is inconsistent with the narrower devotion to one's immediate family.”—San Francisco Chronicle.

HADENFELDT, the late Colonel STRAHAN, and 24 Illustrations from Photographs In this book an attempt is made to capture the charm of one of the acknowledged beautyspots of the world; but charm is essentially an elusive quality, not easily trapped in a net of words. Pictures have therefore been added.
They are interpretations in colour of the Soul of Kashmir, and they depict something more than the external beauty that is acknowledged by the eye of every traveler in that exquisite country.
