of misconduct with Florence Neil. Mr. I McFar-
lane (instructed by D. Clive Morrison) appeared
for the petitioner. Evidence was given that

with them, and it was alleged that misconduct
afterwards followed. The petitioner left her hus-
band. A decree nisi was granted.

vals half a fortnight or three weeks for some time,

DIVORCE COURT.
OVER ONE HUNDRED CASES.
With ninety-nine cases already listed, and prob-
ably several more likely to be put down for the
present sittings, Mr. Justice A'Beckett opened the
hearing on divorce causes in the Practice Court yes-
terday. He heard five suits, graded the petitions
for dissolution of marriage in four, and reserved
his decision in the fifth.
SHEPPARD V. SHEPPARD (NEWELL
Godfrey Sheppard (51), of Newbury-avenue, Chel-
sea, bootmaker, sought a divorce from Emma Shep-
pard (41), on the ground of misconduct with David
Newell, who was joined as co-respondent. There
was no appearance for the respondent and co-
respondent, but a letter was written by respondent
stating that her husband had turned out. Mr.
L. S. Woolf(instructed by Mr. A. M. Roy) ap-
peared for the petitioner.
The parties were married on August 8, 1911, and
separated two days later, it being alleged that
the respondent went to co-respondent, with whom
it was stated she had lived previously.
Godfrey Sheppard, the petitioner, in giving evi-
dence, said: —I met respondent at a matri-
monial agency three days before marriage. I
asked her if she was keeping company with
anyone, and she said she had not. We arranged
to be married, and were married.
Mr. Woolf. –That evening you saw her brother-
-in-law? —Yes. He said, "She daren't fetch you
here before she was married." Next day Newell
told me he had lived with the respondent for three
years.
Other evidence was given that the parties did
not cohabit, and that on August 10 respondent left
petitioner, and had since lived with the co-respon-
dent.
Mr. Justice A'Beckett said it seemed to him that
petitioner had directly conducted to his wife's
action. There was not the slightest advantage,
as far as society went, to keep the petitioner tied
to this woman; it would be better to cut them
adrift. But they were legal considerations.
Mr. Woolf contended that the husband's action
had not conduce to the misconduct of the wife.
Mr. Justice A'Beckett. —I think it did.
Mr. Woolf. —He had not, by his conduct caused
her to return to the co-respondent.
Mr. Justice A'Beckett. —I must consider the case.
No doubt his conduct led to her going back.

To those who want an amusing book to

recommend Ford Madox Hueffer's story,
"The Panel" (London: Constable). It is a
piece of broad comedy, which the author's
skill has prevented from becoming too
broad. Some of the situations border on
sheer farce, but there is a dramatic quality
in all of them which makes it almost cer-
tain that, sooner or later, someone will

Craven. He visits Craven's home, and falls
in love with Margaret Craven, whilst some
subtle sympathy makes him an especially
welcome guest to her silent mother. But
he realises soon that Craven suspects him,
and by degrees all the influences about him,
strengthening him and refining him, lead
him to make confession of his deed, and to
endeavour to atone for it. It is impossible,
however, to do justice to the simplicity,
the power, and the dignity of Mr. Wal-
pole's story. It is not a morbid story. It
is quiet, restrained, and wholesome, and it
his relieved by attaches of true humour. In
the portrait of Bunning, the big, soft, dirty,
pathetic undergraduate, who rewards Olva
Dune's kindness with sheer adoration, Mr.
Walpole, perhaps, is guilty of a little over-
drawing; but this is the only weakness in
a book which reveals an exceptional gift of
insight and understanding.

THE SENSE OF GUILT.
One of the most remarkable books which
have appeared for some time is Hugh Wal-
pole's "The Prelude to Adventure" )Lon-
don; Mills and Boon; Melbourne; George
Robertson). It is a study of a young
man who has committed a crime, an undis-
covered crime, and who is unable to still
his conscience or to escape from his
thoughts. The young men is a Cambridge
undergraduate, who in a moment of pas-
sion has felled another with a single blow,
to find that he has killed him. The victim
had roused his wrath and earned his hatred
by a long course of evil doing, culminating
in the betrayal of a young girl, and the boy,
though horrified at the result of his fury, is
unable to feel sorrow for what he has done.
But in the moment in which he stands look-
ing at the dead body that comes to him
consciousness, and knowledge, of the exist-
ence of God. And this consciousness never
again leaves him. He goes back to his col-
lege, at first expecting that the discovery
of the body will be followed by his arrest;
but as the days pass and no suspicion falls
upon him he is concerned only with his
own conscience. Partly to escape from
that, he throws himself with enthusiasm
into neglected sports, and he comes into
close companionship with the chief friend
of his victim, an undergraduate named

Mrs Romilly Fedden has given us a book
of quite exceptional power in "The Sign"
(London Macmillan). A very tragic story
it is, but the tragedy is inevitable, the
result of the strange mysticism, the exalted
purity that exist side by side with brutal
sordidness, ugliness, and pain in the un-
modern recesses of modern Brittany. Three
artists spend the summer in the little vil-
lage of Le Kloar. Of these one is a

illness, who has not yet found himself. It

tracted by human problems, and his brush
successful painter, who has come to paint,
and who paints, day by day, so many hours,
taking away with him in the end so much
carefully accomplished, pretty work. He
is purely superficial, entirely selfish, and
quite successful. But the third moon works
with lifeblood as well as paint. A man
fire from devoid of feeling, he demands
his toll of human sacrifice if he is to ac-
complish his best. And in this brief sum-
mer one woman meets her death and an-
other deserts her lover because of him.
But the chief interest of the story lies less
in the painters then in the village maiden,
Monik, who sees visions, and who is pos-
sessed with the belief that she has been
chosen to teach the people about her
