Smith, A. Through Cyprus.

" A writer who does not possess the gift of pictur. esqueness, bnt who can describe.

The concluding chapters would make an excellent handy history of Cy. prus, and in that form would make a very useful school. book. They are full, carefully studied, and very well

written." - Spectator, Aug. 13. Stälin, P. F: Geschichte Württembergs. Ir Bd.,

* The idea of bringing an ordinary young fox-hunting squire into contact with certain developments of 'occult' power, and seeing how he behaves can always be worked out so as to give it novelty. Mr. Sturgis bas told the little story in his usual dainty style." Athenæum, July 16.

“ Altogether, this novel is not bad, although there is not much plot, and what there is of it is, to say the least, improbable." Saturday reriew, Aug. 13.

" Mesmerism plays an important part in the story, the heroine being under the complete control of her com.

panion, an unscrupulous woman, through this power." Swinburne, A. C: Select poems.

“The very best, if not the most peculiar and distinctive, of Mr. Swinburne's work is to be found in this little volume." – E. D. A. Morshead in the Academy, Sept. 3.

Tolstoï, Graf L. N. Les Cosaques.

Ma confession; tr. par Zoria.
My confession and the spirit of Christ's teach.

" What Tolstoï sees in Christianity is not an exclu.
sively divine revelation, but a teaching which gives the
meaning of life. Avoid the contorted teachings of the
Church. Let each man make a special study of
Christ's teaching. The spirit of Christ's teaching,
as Tolstoï renders it is certainly beautiful, pure, simple.
There is nothing miraculous in it. Christ is a great and
good inan.” Philu. press.
Scènes du siège de Sébastopol.

by W. D. Howells. “ Mr. Millett's intimate knowledge of the Russian people and Russian life has enabled him to perform this task with great fidelity, while in his style he has suc. ceeded in retaining much of the vigor and directness of the original." — American, July 2.

" The various incidents of the siege which he selects in order to present it in its different aspects, though somewhat fragmentary in themselves, form a graphic whole which can never be forgotten by any one who has once read it."
