Tania Meredith is an altogether new character study. Her father, an English dramatist, only had one year of happiness with her mother, a beautiful Russian girl, whom he had married in Moscow. He marries again in a little while after her death, and Tania is left with her mother's family to be brought up. When Dion Meredith dies his widow, Tania's stepmother, brings the girl to London, intending, after two years of conventional mourning, to launch her into society. Tania's story begins here, and as it is one of passionate love, with a most tragical and unexpected ending, we will not anticipate its strong interest by further details.

Mr. Eells gives much interesting information relative to the native religion and superstitions of those for whom he was working. The manners of the Indians, their customs, languages, besetting

sins, etc., receive full treatment.

Two Neapolitans-a brother and sister-from the very lowest strata of society enter into a scheme to pass themselves off as the heirs to an immense fortune that has laid unclaimed in Paris for a long time.

As the adventurers are both young and handsome, they at once obtain the entrée to society. Their Aladdin like adventures and dishonest intrigues make a thrilling story, in which, however, they are finally unmasked.

It was her last serial story, published in Aunt Judy's Magazine in 1883-1884, and was followed by." Letter from a little garden," which Mrs. Ewing's death left unfinished. The chief charm of the book is in the blending of humor and pathes when Mary tell how she, with her brothers and sisters, made their "Earthly paradise," a game in which each child assumed Chris creates a character, and dressed to suit the part. much amusement by quaint sayings and his conception of the part "Hose in hose."

The conversations and arguments about improving the lower classes are most interesting, but the author leaves the great problem as unsolved as ever, and does not commit himself to either side of the carefully presented question' *Fagge, C: Hilton, M.D. The principles and practice of medicine; ed. by P.

The opening chapter gives the key to the story, which is of the sensational order. A claiment appears for a vast English estate, fortified by undisputable evidence in the way of papers, etc. In a midnight interview with the man in possession he is shot-murdered the reader knows-but


the verdict rendered against "Philip Tremaine Bourchier, Esq., M. P.," is "killed in self-defence." All kinds of complications arise from this incident. The murdered man's papers get into the hands of an unscrupulous fellow who pretends to be his son, and who terrorizes over the murderer, until death ends the careers of both. Love and marriage play their parts, and there are two interesting heroines.

The mystery around which the plot revolves is one which had separated a husband and wife for many years. The husband, who was supposed to be dead, lived under an assumed name in an out-of-the-way part of England, his son living with him. It is this boy who tells the story. Becoming wearied of his lonely life, he begs his father to let him go to Oxford. Once launched upon the world, chance brings him to London and in contact with his mother, there being of course no' recognition between the

pair. How the misunderstanding occurred between the boy's parents and how they are finally reconciled are well
