"The discussion begins with a description of the Semitic and Aryan families. The development of the marriage relation is then traced through Greek, Roman, Jewish, early Christian, Catholic, and Protestant civilizations to the present day. A study is made of the family as an institution, divine and human, and as the basis of social order. The authors then present some remarkable statistics as to the increase of divorce, especially in this country. The remedies suggested are a proper conception of woman's responsibilities, a higher standard of belief and practice as to domestic institutions, a restoration of the religious basis of marriage, and uniformity of law as to marriage and divorce."-Ñ.

Deals with the trials of a young girl who loses her mother when she is about fifteen; her father is a scientific man, who looks upon her as "only a girl," with little knowledge or judgment.

Anna Karenina; tr. by Nathan Haskell Dole. N. Y., T: Y. Crowell & Co., [1886.] 4+773 p. D. cl., $1.75.

Tolstol is the well-known Russian author, and the writer of My religion." The present story, which Mr. Dole has so admirably translated and finished with an interesting introduction, was written by him in 1875. It is a most realistic transcript of fashionable life in Moscow, with all its vices and follies fearlessly laid bare. Anna Karénina is the wife of a high official, a man much older than herself and of few attractions, whom she has married, or rather been married to, without any pretence of love She meets a brilliant young officer in society, and a mutual love, with which both are inspired, is the beginning of her downfall. Her course after she leaves her husband for her lover is painful in the extreme-one humiliation after another, finally driving her to suicide. This is a mere outline of the leading motive. Besides we get the details of several intrigues and innumerable scenes and episodes illustrating Russian life in the city and country Tolstol, Count Lyof N. Childhood, boyhood, youth; tr. from the Russian by Isabel F Hapgood. N. Y., T: Y. Crowell & Co., [1836.] 9+381 p. por. D. cl., $1.50.

This is a novel in three parts, founded upon the remin iscences and traditions of Tolstoi's family, and the incidents of his own youth and childhood. It was written between 1852 and 1855, and was only intended as the beginning of a great novel, covering his whole career, that as yet has not been completed. This work is of particular interest, since it shows that many of the author's ideas of thirty years ago were precisely similar to those that he is putting in practice to-day in his own person.

S. cl.. $1.50; pap., $1. The author, who is an aristocrat and Russian to the core, has woven a thread of romance into this historically accurate description of one of Napoleon's decisive battles. His characters are well drawn, and he elaborates with artistic finish. The novel is a change from current fiction, which deals so almost exclusively with mental and moral phenomena. It is full of action. Many Russian secret societies are described, and the initiation of a member into one of the most exclusive of them is one of the finest bits of description in the book. The translation is smooth and idiomatic.

Tolstoi, Count Léon. War and peace. a historical novel. Pt. 2, The invasion, 18071812; translated into French by a Russian lady and from the French by Clara Bell. N. Y., W: S.

Pierre, the freemason and liberal, is again a prominent figure, re-united to his frivolous wife, and going a downward pace in spite of his ideal theories. The scenes are taken entirely from Russian high life, and deal with love and intrigue. and the threatened war between Russia and France. Napoleon and Alexander both appear upon the scene, the descriptions of the French Emperor not being at all flattering. Fiance has invaded Russia and is marching upon Moscow when the story

ends. As the fates of the various characters are left in doubt, there are probably more volumes to come.

To those who read the first two parts of this work "Before Tilsit" and "The invasion," the present volumes will be full of interest. It carries the story slowly on to an ending, the same characters appearing again. The historical part, which occupies more than two thirds of the volume, embraces the great battle of Borodino, the occupation of Moscow by the French, its burning, and the retreat of the French without again showing fight.

A picture of New Orleans life, beautiful, vivid, and mournful, is contained in Towards the gulf.

The story turns upon the taint of blood, and is an awful sermon upon the miseries that punish the prejudices as well as the vices of men This cannot but detract from the artistic value of the book, which is all but perfect in form, and yet the interest is genuine and abiding, and the workmanship is refreshingly good "- Commercial Advertiser

cl., $1.50.

Scene is laid in Maryland and around Washingtor This historical novel opens in October, 1859, just before John Brown's raid. The details of that expedition are given, and the death of John Brown vividly described. The election of President Lincoln, the civil war, the murder of Lincoln, the death of John Wilkes Booth, the trial of Mrs. Surratt, and all the leading events which led to and followed the emancipation of the slaves, have been cleverly used to make a story of great merit. Katy of Catoctin is a young, innocent girl, a descendant of the Pennsylvania Dutch, who becomes engaged to the hero after very short acquaintance and remains faithful to him throughout his troublous career. In the descriptions of life among the Tunkers, of natural scenery, and in the study of the characters of John Brown and John Wilkes Booth, Mr. Townsend shows his great versatility and strong English to great advantage. Quotations from the press of those days are skilfully worked into the plot.

The subject of this monograph is the statesman of the Restoration, born 1621. died 1683. The previous biographies that we have had of him have represented him as utterly corrupt, or have endeavored to prove him a much-slandered man, and very near to perfection, morally. Mr. Traill has chosen a middle course, and aimed to show that he was at least no worse than his contemporaries. His estimate of the earl is summed up in the following paragraph: "Ambition and contentiousness, the love of conflict and the love of power, were the dominant impulses of his career and the all-suficient explanation of his conduct, quitted Charles I. for the Parliament, because he saw the avenues of advancement closed against him in the King's service. He abandoned the Commonwealth for Charles

Apollonius was a contemporary of Jesus; it was claimed that he was divinely conceived, and that he came with a revelation as the Saviour of humanity; his written lite tells of miracles performed by him in Greece, and of a religion preached by him advocating a morality and virtue far in advance of his age. Mr. Tredwell furnishes a most interesting biography of him based upon the narrative of Philostratus. Its special aim is to show that the main facts in the history of Apollonius are as well attested a the life of Christ. Great care has been taken to describe the people and the countries through which Apollonius travelled as they were in his day; his philosophy, his religion, and his system of ethics are given as they came from his own lips. A prominent feature of the work is the bibliographical references. The work is handsomely printed by De Vinne has broad margins and uncut edges. *Trench, R: Chenevix. The study of words. N. Y., J: B.

Microbes, ferments, and moulds. N. Y., Appleton, 1886. S+314 P. il. D. (International sci. ser., no. 56.) cl., $1.50.

A number of works have been written on the subject of microbes, but they have all been prepared for the physician or naturalist, and take for granted that the reader is familiar with the ideas already established on pathol ogy or on cryptogamic botany. This work, while it will interest and be found to have much of value for physicians and practical men, is written more for the general public-those persons, in fact, who possess only the elementary notions of natural science which are included in the course of primary instruction. The author hopes it may therefore find a place in the libraries of secondary instruction, and in public libraries, and may serve introduction to the learned works of Cornil and Ba'ies. of Duclaux, Klein, Koch, Sternberg, and others.

cl., $1.25.

The little master is a young undersized country boy of eighteen, full of natural talent and imbued with great force of character, who is almost self-educated. The book relates his experience as a teacher-first telling his adventures in getting a situation, his size and youth both being against him. He has charge the first winter of a country school and carries out with great success his theories of education; he especially objects to corporal punishment, and really obtains great influence over the boys by appealing to their intelligence and sense of honor.

These two stories, like many others from Turgenieff's pen, were written with a purpose; which is to expose the corruption and moral degradation of the Russian nobility. In both stories the heroes inherit all their worst qualities from their fathers, who are nobles, and their virtues from their mothers, who belong to the peasant class. They are sad but graphic illustrations of Russian life fifty years ago. Turner, Ross. On the use of water-colors for beginners. Bost., L. Prang & Co., 1886. 32 p. pl. Q. bds., $3.
