The longest of the tales and the most ambitious is "Little Anne" by C. S. Harper 3S. The characters in the story are very distinct and each one personally interesting. This writer understands the use of pathos, which figures largely in his second story, "Number Two Seventeen," the sad history of a convict and his too-long delayed pardon.
The normal true-to-nature style of story of which this number largely consists is the best thing that the Advocate can hope to publish.
