Sixteen short sketches of Russian life. Simply written and inspired generally by some pregnant text of Scripture. The translator says in his brief preface: "Nowhere has Count Tolstol's genius as a writer been more wonderfully displayed than in his tracts for the people. Written in an artless style, they are vivid, dramatic, touching. Their very simplicity adds to their charm." Among them is that exquisite little legend, "Where love, is, there God is also," which in booklet form has had such a wide circulation.

For ten years a large corps of scholars have been at work at the Unabridged," re-editing it line by line, enriching it by new matter, eliminating old material and correcting errors; the technical subjects have been trusted to eminent specialists, who have brought them in line with the more recent discoveries. The number of illustrations has been increased to nearly 4000, and about two thirds of them are entirely new. To allow for the new material the page has been slightly enlarged and more pages added. The vocabularies, tables, etc., in the appendix of the former editions have been perfected and and in its ground-plan of construction, the present edibrought fully up to date. In its general aim and scope, tion does not greatly vary from its predecessors. A val

uable new article has been added on "Indo-Germanic *Wood's (W: & Co.) medical and surgical monoroots in English," by August Fick. "The guide to pronunciation " shows in its synopsis of words differently pronounced by different orthoëpists, the substitution of the more recent authorities for the old ones, proving that the present pronunciation is a digest of the researches of the philologists of the world.

Wesselhoeft, Lily F. The winds, the woods and the wanderer: a fable for children. Bost.,

Roberts Bros., 1890. c. 2-298 p. il. D. cl., $1.25.

The author has aimed to depict an artistic temperament that is misunderstood by the practical natures by which it is surrounded. Edmund Merton's troubles all come from his love of drawing pictures. To make him practical his uncle sends him to work on a farm. Edmund runs away from the farmer, ships on a sailing vessel, is almost lost at sea, but finally comes to land. In the course of his wanderings he meets an Indian boy with the same artistic temperament as himself, and a strong sympathy grows up between them. The forest trees talk together, as did the birds and animals in the author's other books.

Whitney, Mrs. A. D. T. Ascutney street: a neighborhood story. Bost., Houghton, Mifflin & Co., 1890. c. 2+259 p. D. cl.. $1.50.

The lesson Mrs. Whitney teaches in this bright story is "that reality, sincerity, unselfishness and noble aspíration make life not only worth living, but infinitely more sane and beautiful than low aims and pretence can make it." A pretentious little street in a New England town is the scene. The dwellers in the pretentious little houses in Ascutney Street are the characters. The bright dialogue, the author's keen wit and insight are the chief attractions in a delightful story.

The scene is in that beautiful and picturesque region of the Hartz Mountains dominated by the Brocken. The time is during the imprisonment of Pope John XXII. at Avignon, and the motive lies in the great struggle between the gallant and noble Albrecht von Regenstein, known by his enemies as "the Robber Count," and the ambitious Bishop of Halberstadt for supremacy in the Hartz country. It is a story full of poetry, charm and adventure.

Young, Rev. L. F. Studies in Bible and church history and doctrines: prepared for the use of Epworth leagues; with an introd., by J. F. Marlay, D.D. Cin., O., Printed for the author, Western Methodist Book Concern, 1890. c. 96 p. por. S. cl., 40 c.

In the form of a catechism this little book gives instruction in Bible study, and in the history of Methodism, defining the doctrines of the Methodist Church and avoid

ing speculative questions entirely. The book is the outgrowth of successful work among young people. It is recommended as a manual worthy to take its place in the Epworth League reading course. *Zickel's illustrirter deutsch-amerikanischer Familien Kalender, 1891. N. Y., S. Zickel, 129 Duane St., 1890. 64 p. 4°, pap., 25 c. Zoe, by the author of Miss Toosey's mission." Bost., Roberts Bros., 1890. 2-181 p. D. cl., 60 c.

The story opens in Dawnside church, at a baptism; the clergyman's request for the infant's name leads to confusion, and forecast's a mystery in the young heroine's life. The interest of the story is centred in the discovering of Zoe's identity, although the romantic incident which led to her odd naming has a special charm and romance, and the reconciliation of Mr. Robins and his daughter supplies a pathetic element that is present in all the previous books by this author.
