UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Urbana Daily Courier — 15 March 1903
RUDYARD KIPLING f Kudyard Kipling , novelist , poet , and patriot , has written many things , but never anything better than his novel , The Light That Failed / which begins as a serial story in The Courier this morning . Kipling is probably the most prominent literary figure in-the world . He is paid the highest prices for his work , which is eagerly sought for . The opportunity to read his great novel has never been given newspaper subscribers before . The / Light That Failed is a stirring story of love , war and adventure , depicted by a master hand . The hero is an artist , who is also a war correspondent , and who is threatened with blindness , hence the title . The heroine is lovable , and one of the few women Kipling has drawn at length . To give a synopsis of the story would be spoiling the pleasure of reading it .
