THE CARE OF A SOUL.

By Mme. JEANNE MAIRET.

12mo. Illuminated Paper Cover. Profusely Illustrated.

“ The author of this novel is the daughter of the famous artist, Healey, who, after a sojourn of years in Paris, has recently returned to Chicago.

It tells of a woman's sacrifice of self. She loves a man who, unconscious of her love for himself, loves her sister. The heroine nobly gives him up, and after his marriage to her sister he is accused of murder. To save and shield him she lays bare the innermost secrets of her heart.”. The Chicago Mail.

“ The book is one of the few French novels which can justly be said to be both pure and interesting. It has the vivid and artistic touch which is the greatest strength of the French school without the blase tone which permeates nearly all of the French novels which are flooding the American market, and the most exacting reader must admit that it is none the less strong and interesting for this lack. The illustrations are excellent-far above the usual standard of even the better paper novels."--The Chicago Times.
