of the aurora borealis, His main object was to deter. mine the height of the phenomenon above the surface of the earth. Mr. Tromholt did not, however, open bis eyes only to watch the aurora borealis. He ex. amined everything that came in his way; and he took with him, moreover, a photographic apparatus, of which he made use at every opportunity, the result being that the two volumes contain, in a literary as well as in a pictorial sense, a very complete sketch of the conditions of existence in an arctic land that has been but little visited by Englishmen. He devotes a long and learned though not by any means a dry chapter to his theories respecting the aurora borealis, and elabo. rately explains the series of observations which lead him to suppose that the average beight above the earth of the lower edges of the aurora which he examined was slightly over seventy miles. The two volumes may be read with pleasure. Their scientific value is considerable; and they give the most minute account that has yet been published of the home life and habits of one of the few remaining ravage peoples of Europe."

5B-B8564 “Great as was his kindness to the lower animals, and hearty as was his pleasure in them, he seemed to take them quite naturally just as they took each other. Frank Buckland knew what he could do, and did it. He was a naturalist with a practical bias, proposing rather to turn his insight into natural history to some practical account than to extend the limits of the speculative prin. ciples which it opened up. He was never so happy as when he was improving ihe resources of the world, and improving the physical condition of some of the lower
animals at the same time." Spectutor, June 6. Boston pearl and galaxy; gazette devoted to literature, etc.

Pleasant and instructive reading, and Miss Ballin has translated it carefully, and added to its interest by her supplement of newspaper letters about the Mahdi and the siege of Khartoum.”.
