land are stimulating their aspirations
by introducing English letters and
words in primary readers. Though'
the children are not compelled to
learn them they soon do.
In the higher grades English is elec-
tive. A great number of the pupils
are learning it..
Then, too, the Japense children like
to hear the stories of great men in
other countries, especially of those
in this country.
Among the pictures of great Amer-
icans they are fond of is the one of
Franklin with the loaves of bread un-
der his arm; the'one of Lincoln study-
ing before the open fire and the one of
Washington in his father's orchard
with his hatchet.

Thus they are constant y learning
the ways of this country and getting
the American spirit.
In 1908, when the United States
navy visited our land the children of
the schools of Tokio showed their
hearty welcome by learning American
national songs and singing them be-
fore the officers and men.
English is used in many places out-
side of the schools. In railroad sta-
tions for example the timetables an-
nouncements and rules are often print-
ed in that language.
So the English language has a much
greater influence in Japan than the
average person would imagine.

THE TRUFFLERS-Samuel Merwin.
Bobbs-Merril, Indianapolis.
To those who are young and to those
who lead the most conservative of
lives there is an eternal appeal in the
tales of that freedom of life which ex-
ists in the so-called Bohemian life.
Especially is this true of those tales
which are surrounded by the romantic
halo of New York at its most pictures-
que. In the queer, intense emotional
atmosphere of Washington Square and
Greenwich village,_ live three men,
Peter Ericson Mann, the playwright,
long of face and clever, Hy Lowe,
whose assistant editorship of a miss-
ionary journal cannot daunt the light-
ness of his soul, and Henry Bates, the
worm, who "does" book reviews. Then
there is Sue Wilde, slim and fearless
as a boy, who has left her home and
its conventions for the free life of the
village so that she may pass on her
message of freedom to the world.
There are others in the village, Zanin,
the Russian, with the virility of mind

and idea which the peasant of the
old world gives to the idealist of the
new, and a restless lot of artists and
free thinkers.
It is for Sue Wilde and others girls
of the quarter that Peter invents the
name "Truffler," one who seeks mere-
ly the truffles of life, who turns from
the duties of life to the passionate en-
joyment of pleasure. It is as a preach-
ment against this false freedom that
he writes his play "The Truffiers."
Later, when he knows Sue, he writes
the scenario for the nature film, in
which is advocated the most radical
"truffling." The contrast between
these two plays shows the conflict
around which the story is written.
Mr. Merwin has in his story consid-
ered the problem of the modern wo-
men. In Sue, he has presented her with
a great deal of sympathy and fair-
show, he has recognized her passionate
desire for what she considers is free-
dom, and he has come to the same con-
clusion about her which most of those
who devote stories to her interests and
importance, simply that the modern
woman is no different in her real in-
stincts and desires, from the old
fashioned woman. She is not a woman
minus certain qualities which her
grandmother possessed, she possesses
these qualities plus others which her
enlarged vision has given her. The
man or the woman who tries to get
away from the fundamental facts of
'life, has refused to live.
The "Trufflers" is an entertaining
story; its characterization is real and
amusing, and its atmosphere is ap-
pealing. For those who desire light
reading and for those who are inter-
ested in the problems of the modern
woman, the story would be equally
profitable reading.
