MONEY AND THE MECHANISM OF EXCHANGE.

By W. Stanley Jevons, M.A., F.R.S., Professor of Logic and Political Economy in the Owens College, Manchester. One vol., Bmo. cloth, $1.75. He offers us what a clear-sighted, cool-headed, scientific student has to say on the nature, properties and natural laws of money, without regard to local interests or national bias. His work is popularly written, and every page is replete with solid instruction, of a kind that is just now lamentably needed by multitudes of our people, who are victimized by the grossest fallacies.—Popular Science Monthly.
