The Delineator Magazine, October 1900

Volume LVI, No. 4

THE ARTICLE on The Women of China, by Laura B. Starr. in the present number will be read with great interest at this time. Mrs. Starr's long residence in the Far East and large acquaintance with civil and official Chinese life, make her particularly qualified to write on this subject. The pictures are reproduced from original photographs.

Although Miss Mabel McKinley. the President's niece, will not be married in the White House, interest in the event naturally suggests former weddings in which the Chief Executive participated. Mrs. Crowninshield's paper on White House Brides is delightfully reminiscent and furnishes an attractive picture of life and manners during the different administrations.

Charles G. D. Roberts' romance of White Marie and Dark Marianne is charmingly told, carrying to the reader with its breath of the Acadian woods a story of love, sacrifice and supreme renunciation.

THE NOVEMBER DELINEATOR, THE DELINEATOR for November will be attractive in every feature. A striking contribution will be the Halloween story in verse by Edith M. Thomas, with four full-page illustrations by J. Allen St. John. In all her work Miss Thomas has never written anything more tender and sympathetic than this story, and the artist interprets the chief scenes with true feeling.

The extent to which the Carnival spirit enters into Southern society will be shown in T. C. De Leon's article, The Social Side, which describes the pageants of the chief Carnival cities, and presents portraits of the most noted participants.

It is rare that a story of perfect love comes to the knowledge of and is accepted by a doubting world ; like some of the virtues, love, often sturdy enough in seclusion, seems to wither in the glare of publicity. The story of the Brownings, with its fine antiphonals, is idyllic, and it is told by Clara E. Laughlin with all the charm that pen can give.

Mrs. Schuyler Crowninshield will contribute one of her characteristic West Indian tales, and there will be a refreshing variation in the stories of college life in the shape of The Romance of a Co-Ed. The serial articles will be continued, the departments, as usual, will be full of the latest and best information, and there will be many other important features never before introduced in the magazine.

Order this important number early.
The subscription price of THE DELIN EA-TOR is ONE DOLLAR for an entire year : Single Copies are FIFTEEN CENTS.
