TRUTH vs. FICTION.

The pretence of Esres & Laurtar that they have obtained the injunction of the United States Circuit Court against any publication with the word “Chatterbox” has imposed upon the public long enough.

The injunction they did obtain was in these words: “It is also further adjudged and decreed that a perpetual injunction be issued in this suit against the said defendants, BELFORD, CLARKE & CO., re- straining them, . .°. their servants, . . . and all persons claiming or holding under or through them, or either of them, from it is printing, stamping, marking, attaching, or afhxing said name or word = ‘Chatterbox’ in or upon books of a juvenile character OF THE - GENERAL APPEARANCE, STYLE, AND MANNER OF | COVER AND STYLE OF PRINTING WHICH ARE UPON and. fF THE COMPLAINANTS’ SAID BOOKS, . . . and from Hon, simulating the appearance and style of printing of the complainants’ ‘Chatterbox ;’ and from selling, offering for sale, and from presenting to the public juvenile publications printed IN SUCH STYLE, and with the use of the title ‘Chatterbox,’ IN SUCH MANNER as to lead the "the public to believe that they are the publications of the complainants.” 1po Precisely the same injunction was granted against FRANK LEs.LIg,

nd no other or different one has ever been obtained by them.

| My books do not resemble in any of the respects mentioned ih s . the publications of Esres & LAurRIAT.

| | That the public may know what kind of men Estes & LAuRIAT rica are, I give the following extract from the testimony of Mr. EstTes

erks, in their suit against me :

BOOKS FOR THINKERS.

The Labor Movement in

America. By Prof. Ricuarp T. ELy. This book is the result of several years’ work on the art of Prof. Ely, who is an acknowledged authority, both in Europe and America, on economic and social topics. It is the most complete historical sketch yet published of the origin and growth both of Socialism and of labor or- ganizations. No pains have been spared to secure accu- racy. Professor Ely has collected for years books, pam- hiets, labor newspapers,constitutions of trades-unions,and ike material, with this in view; and, during the prepara- tion of this book, he has travelled several thousand miles, visiting Communistic settlements and leading industrial centres, and forming the acquaintances of labor leaders. His picture of the present condition of the labor move ment may be relied upon as taken from life.

$1.50.

‘* The literature is delightful ; full of charming humor tender pathos, the liveliest sympathy with nature, t keenest knowledge of human nature, and a style whos charm makes itself felt through the shadows of a strangt speech. It is the story of two sisters—daughters 0! t chief family in a Spanish seaport city. Maria, who passes from the romance of literature to the romance of religion, and abandons home, father, and lover, to become tx spouse of Heaven; and Marta, who remains to consok all these for her loss. Wedo not remember a character more finely studied than that of Maria. But Marta Marta is delicious! Nothing could be lovelier than the portrayal of this girl's affection for her father and mother, and of the tenderness that insensibly grows up betwee! her and her sister’s lover, left step by step in the lurch 5) the intending bride of Heaven. ' 5

‘* A sketch of the story gives no idea of its situations, © what is more difficult and important, the atmosphere 0! reality in which it moves. The whole social life of the quiet town is skilfully suggested, and an abundance figures pass before us, all graphically drawn, none touched with weakness or exaggeration.”

581 domestic, and dramatic incidents of the eventful years between that raid and the death of Lincoln; and an exquisite edition of the best known Es- says of Elia,” with over one hundred wood-cut il- lustrations, the work of Mr. Charles O. Murray, who did such clever work in illustrating Addison’s ‘‘Sir Roger de Coverley,” some two years since. SCRIBNER & WELFORD have just ready a fine volume of interest to Americans, in ‘“ Memo- rials of Washington and of Mary his Mother, and Martha his Wife, from letters and papers of Robert Cary and James Sharples,’ by Major James Walter. The volume is illustrated with portraits in autotype of Washington and his wife, of seven prominent American women of the pe- riod, and of Priestly, from paintings by Sharples, the originals of which are now on exhibition at the rooms of the American Art Association, 6 E. Twenty-third Street, New York City; also a portrait of Mary Washington by Middleton.

Lee & SHEPARD have in preparation for early publication “‘ The Monarch of Dreams,” by Thos. Wentworth Higginson, a work which will attract attention for the reason that it indicates a rever- sion from the current realism to the more imagi- native school of Hawthorne. It is based on a careful study—perhaps through the Society for Psychical Research—of the phenomena of dream- ing. The hero, a lone man in a farm-house among the hills, is possessed with the ambition to connect his dreams and thus lead two separate ex- istences, and this he carries out with a success that ends in tragedy. It reminds the reader of Hawthorne in its style. They have also nearly ready ‘‘ Sketches of Western Life,” by Hon. Harvey Rice, of Cleveland, Ohio.

TicKNoR & Co. publish to-day ‘‘ Sonnets from the Portuguese,” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, illustrated by Ludvig Sandoe Ipsen, in an oblong folio (13x16 inches) bound in cloth and tree calf. This magnificent work has been a labor of love with the artist for many years, he having lavished upon it all the resources of his imagination and skill. They have also just ready Stories of Art and Artists,” by Clara Erskine Clement, a profusely illustrated work, giving a complete résumé of the history of art, with accounts of the various schools, sketches and anecdotes of the great artists, with portraits and reproductions of their works; “Songs and Satires,” a volume of poems by James Jeffrey Roche, well known as acontributor of singularly original and delicate vers de société to Life and other periodicals; and Literary Curiosities,” edited by Henry M. Brooks, of Sa- lem, being vol. vi. of the the O/den-7ime Sertes. The publishers have now put up this popular se- ries in sets, in a handsome box containing the six volumes.

NOTES ON AUTHORS.

Mrs. JENNIE E. CROLy (‘ Jennie June”), it is reported, has resigned the editorship of Demeo- rest’s Magazine.

of Anglo-Indian life, with scenes during the

mutiny. N. Y., Harper, 1886. 70 p. Q. (Har-

People are possibly a little tired of stories of the Indian mutiny, but when we once get started in this the interest is sustained without any lapses and the author has love-scenes, battle-scenes, tournaments enough for another story.
