A Story y Cliristlnu Kell In Freud.
In the spring of 1891 there ap
peared in LippincotPs Magazine a
story by "Christian Reid" (Mrs.
Tiernan) entitled "The picture of
jutd oxuuea. inis story fell into
the hands of M. de Varigny, a noted
French author, and he was 80 im
pressed by its literary merits that
heat once wrote LJr?. Tiernan ask
ing permission to trffp.s! e it into
French foi piibl;c:-J.rcn. His Paris
publishers also wrote offering for the
story a better price than had teen
paid by the American publishers. As
a result of this correspondence the
story, beautifully illustrated, ha3
been published in IIllustration, a

This high ud well deseryed com
