Cut: a story of West Point. Phil., J. B. Lippincott Co., 1886. 3-286 p. S. cl., $1.; pap., 50 c.


The author of "White feathers" and "A model wife" has written a story of West Point Academy in which the principal incident is the "cutting" of cadet Kenyon for having the moral courage to refuse to fight a duel. There are several pleasing little romances interwoven, as well as some episodes of the Rebellion, the event which followed closely upon the graduation of the class which Mr. Cervus portrays.

3-266 p. D. cl., $1.25.

Flossy Tangleskein was an imaginative little girl, who was so discontented with her hum-drum-bread-andbutter-spelling-book, American child-life, that she even said to herself she would gladly change to a little Zulu savage, or an almond-eyed Oriental." One day she falls asleep in the studio of an artist friend, to whom she is posing for a picture of a Breton peasant child. In her dreams she has many adventures, and undergoes many transformations, becoming in turn a child of almost every nation on the globe. She has thus a chance to test her wish, but returns to reality quite satisfied that to be a little American girl is about the best of all. The story is an attractive mixture of fact and fiction, information and fairy-land adventures.

A quaint story of two old maiden ladies whose placid lives are curiously interwoven with that of a young scapegrace; written in order to show that in the end good will triumph over evil, and to illustrate that an honest life, though poor and lowly, is always prefcrable to one of deceit and ill-gotten gain.

The argument of the book is addressed to pastors specially, who are accused by the writer of neglecting the children of their flock and trusting their training in piety entirely to the home and Sunday-school. Several of the chapters were prepared to be read before ecclesiastical bodies, and were also delivered as lectures to the students of the Divinity School at New Haven. It gives a very earnest description of the principles and methods most favorable for the culture of child-piety.

Chesneau, Ernest. The education of the artist; tr. by Clara Bell. N. Y., Cassell & Co., 1886. 12+327 p. D. (The fine-art lib.) cl., $2. The belief entertained by M. Chesneau that the present decadence of art in Europe is owing to the imperfect edu cation of the artist, is the reason which prompted the preparation of this work. In "education" he does not include technical training-it is the imperfect development of the intellectual powers and moral qualities to which he specially alludes, and also the lack of experience in the various phases of modern life. A number of most interesting chapters makes suggestions, that artists will find full of value in remedying their deficiencies in this way, or in opening up to them new methods of study.

Dr. Chester's book, while showing much of the absurdity of spiritualism, also aims to show the nobleness of true Bible spiritualism, inasmuch as the Scriptures fully answer all proper inquiries concerning the state of the dead; and the communion of saints through Christ and the Holy Spirit yields far more real comfort than could come through any séance though communication were possible. Contains a slight thread of story with a view to make the book more popular.

The main action of this story belongs to a critical and interesting period in the last years of the Roman Republic In 72 B. C. when the young hero, Lucius Marius, is represented as starting to take up an official position in Sicily, Italy was slowly recovering from the effects of the internal struggles which had distracted the state for many years, and abounded in ruined and desperate men. these, Spartacus, a gladiator, had recuited his army, and was at the height of his power. For many years after this the pirates held almost undisputed possession of the Mediterranean Sea. The story ends with the passing away of the Republic and the division of the empire between Antony and Augustus. Boys will enjoy the book, as it is full of action, and not too learned

Mr. Church says "it is difficult to tell the story of Carthage, because one has to tell it without sympathy, and from the standpoint of her enemies." He treats the nation from its obscure legendary origin to its culminating splendor as a rival of Rome, and then to its absolute extinction. The story is a solemn one, but Mr. Church makes it real, and his collaborateur, Mr. Gilman, has also done good work. It is divided into three parts, 1st, Legend and Early History: 2d, Carthage and Greece: 3d, Carthage and Rome. There are nearly fifty illustrations. Church, Ella Rodman. Talks by the seashore.

She and her brother "Peep are adopted by their Uncle John Bruff, an old retired sea-captain, and go home to live in the country with him. The chief event of the story is the uncle's marriage, and the coming of "Aunt Pen," who is a good friend to the little ones. The story has a motive. The incidents, which are related with unusual fulness of detail, are chosen as best developing " graciousness or ungraciousness in manner, kindliness or unaffectionateness in gift and acceptance, the enjoyment that lies in simple and inexpensive pleasures."

Mr. Clay was one of the most prominent statesmen of his day. He was born in Madison Co., Ky., Oct. 19, 1810. He graduated at Yale in 1832. One of his first acts in public life was to oppose the annexation of Texas to the Union. From the first, he was an aggresive opponent of slavery, and in this volume he describes many exciting incidents in connection with his work in this direction. He became editor of the True American, an anti-slavery paper

issued in Lexington, Ky., in 1845. He served as a captain in the Mexican war (1846-'47), supported Lincoln in 1860, and became a brigadier-general of the Union army in 1861. He was Minister to Russia from 1862-'69. His autobiography is written with considerable frankness, and will prove an interesting addition to the literature of one of the most exciting epochs in the history of this country. This volume brings the narrative down to 1884. The second volume, which will be issued in 1887 probably contain chiefly letters and speeches.

This work has been undertaken to satisfy a want often felt personally by the author and often expressed to her by others. Travelling abroad in Christian lands, symbolic forms are constantly met that are known in a general way to represent the mysteries and facts of the Christian faith, but fail to recall them accurately to the uninitiated beholder. Churches are dedicated to saints hitherto unheard of. The first part of the book is devoted to a treatise on symbolism in art; the second gives legends and stories illustrated in art. 1 here are copies of ten celebrated paintings and sketches of the lives of twenty two saints. A full index occupies twenty-five pages of the book, and makes it a practical work of reference. It is handsomely gotten up in green cloth and red edges
