- The Master.'— Matthew Strtng, th* hero of this story, by J. Zang will— William Heinemaaa & Co., London — is a native of Nova Scotia, where he hads during boyhood a rnitio life among primitive surroundings, which tended to strengthen his natural inde pendence of character. He bat a gift for paiuting, snd determines to devote his life to art. He comas to London to study, but in spite of bis undoubted ability asd dodged determination to succeed is obliged to ac knowledge himself beaten. He then returns to his native country, aad coon after macriei Rachel Coble. Sbe brines him a little money, And with this he determines to try bis fortunes in London for the secoad time. This time success is achieved, and Matthew Strang becomes the oelebra -ed artist. Mixing in aristocratio circles it is now that he begins to feel rather ashamed of his wife'a ill* manners and lack of sympathy, and at this point of the story the lion. Eleanor Wynd wood— who is one of the bast studies in tbe book— plays an important part in the life of 'Tho Muter.' Matthew Ssrang is a striking story of patieno9, p*s*ioa, sorrow, and ?usueu. It oontains a masterly analysis of character and much brilliant dialogue and although some ot the descriptive matter is unduly drawn out, and some of the. oon vena- tions stilted it not prosy, it appeals to tbe reader as tbo work of a master in literature. Tbe noblest character in tbe book, although little is said about her, is Ruth Hailey, a play mate of the author in bis youth, whose self sacrificing example proves the turning-point in bis life.
