orth reading than occasipport of what I have in

book is illustrated with numerous pictures of “classic winners "-I think that is the right phrase.

At the Jubilee of the passing of the Corn Laws it was a good idea of Mr. Fisher Unwin to issue a cheaj) edition (two volumes, 78.) of Mr. John Morley's “ The Life of Richard Cobden," with an excellent reproduction of Lowes Dickinson's famous portrait of Cobden as frontispiece. I can mention it fitly enough among books dealing with present political questions. So too I can mention Mr. R. P. Karkaria's “India-Forty Years of Progress and Reform: being a Sketch of the Life and Times of Behramji M. Malabari ” (Frowde, 7s.6d.). “The Pioneers of Empire,” (Methuen, Is.), by some author who prefers to be known siinply as “An Imperialist," is an able “vindication of the principle and a short sketch of the history of Chartered Companies," with special reference to the Chartered Company. It is a compendium of useful facts, and has a good map of South Africa illustrating its argument. An enlarged new edition has appeared of Mr. Hepry W. Woolf's “People's Banke: a Record of Social and Economic Success (King, 10s.); and you will find Mr. Bertram Askew's “ Pros and Cons” (Sonnenschein, ls, net) what it professes to be—"a newspaper reader's and debater's guide" to the leading controversies of the day, political, social, and religious. The interest of Major E, S. May's “Guns and Cavalry: their Performances in the Past and Their Prospects in the Future” (Low, 3s. 6d.), an illustrated volume, is military and scientific rather than political, but I can mention it here: and here too, as it has a very distinct political bearing, I can mention Mr. H. D, Traill's “From Cairo to the Soudan Frontier(Lane, 5s, net), a record of impressions derived from a couple of recent tours in Egypt. Mr. Traill is a hearty advocate of the “Advance" policy, and his picture of " the life and character, the aspect and the manners of that ancient and unchanging people”-the Egyptians, is full of interest and value.

To turn now to science. A fifth volume has appeared of "The Royal Natural History” (9s., net.), which Mr. Lydekker is editing for Messrs. Warne. No book of its kind, I think you will agree, has ever been better illustrated, and the letterpress, for accuracy and authority, could hardly be improved. Certainly there is no other popular natural history which even approaches this in all-round excellence. Then I send the third volume, illustratel with coloured plates like its predecessors, of Dr. Bowdler Sharpe's “ Handbook to the Birds of Great Britain” (W. H. Allen, 6s.), in Allen's Naturalists' Library; and a good book of similar interest is Mr. Charles Dixon's “ British Sea Birds" (Bliss, 10s. 60.), with illustrations by Mr. Charles Whymper. Mr. Grant Allen's “Moorland Idylls " (Chatto, 6s) deals largely with birds, too. It is a series of sketches in his own inimitable manner, and written of course from a pronounced evolutionary standpoint, of the animal life, the flowers, and the trees that he can see on the moorland surrounding his own house at Hindhead. Mr. Allen used to produce books of this kind more often. I have little doubt you possess and love his “ Evolutionist at Large,' and his “Colin Clout's Calendar.” “Moorland Idylls” is just such another volume. “ The Hare” (Longmans, 5s.), & volume of the Fur and Feather Series, appeals rather to the epicure and the sportsman than to the naturalist, although with the other articles, by various learned authorities, on the shooting, cooking, coursing, and hunting of the poor little bi ast, appears an excellent

paper on its natural history. This series, a companion to the Badminton Library of Sports and Pastimes, is admirably illustrated.

Science of another kind is represented by Mr. T. J.: Hudson's “A Scientific Demonstration of the Future Life" (Putnam, 6s.), whose ambitious object is “to outline a method of scientific enquiry concerning the powers, attributes, and destiny of the soul, and tospecifically point out and classify a sufficient number of the well-authenticated facts of psychic science to demonstrate the fact of a future life for mankind.” You will read the book with a great deal of interest, but, with me, I expect you will object to Mr. Hudson splitting his infinitives.

Mr. Swinburne's “The Tale of Bale” (Chatto, 78.), a narrative poem founded on Malory's “old wild tale," which Tennyson used for one of his “Idylls of the King,' is, of course, the most important, as it is the most delightful, of the volumes of verse I have to send you. Recent books there have been of Mr. Swinburne's in which his admirers have feared a losing of strength. “The Tale of Balem” will rehearten them; he has never done finer, more sustained work of its kind. A smaller volume but one full of promise is “ The Happy Wanderer and Other Verses” (Mathews, 5s. net), by a new poet, Mr. Percy Hemingway, whose collections of short tales, “Out of Egypt: Stories from the Threshold of the East," I sent you a year or so ago. Mr. Hemingway is certainly very well worth reading. He is thoughtful and his felicity of phrase is inore than occasional. Here is a quatrain of his, "A New Volume," in proof of what I say:“Nay, sweetheart, ask not in my past to look,

Not yours, and so not mine, its love and spite;
My life to-day is an unlettered book,.

And on the empty pages you must write." His description of the sea as “that mighty organ only God can play” is very fine, and some of the sonnetsnotably that which gives the title-linger in the memory and may not be forgotten. Then there is a new edition of Mr. Arthur Symons's “Silhouettes " (Smithers, 5s. net), the one notable volume of poems that the little band of writers whom the public has dubbed decadent has produced. One can doubt neither the cleverness nor the charm of much of Mr. Symons's work, and here and there he touches a deeper note, and touches it with truth, as when (perhaps unconsciously paraphrasing Rossetti) he finishes “Emmy” with this stanza :

“O my child, who wronged you first, and began

First the dance of death that you dance so well ?
Sonl for soul: and I think the soul of a man

Shall answer for yours in hell.” Mr. Symons is the editor of the Savoy, of which there has been so much talk. And I send Mr. W. Roberts's “ BookVerse: an Anthology of Poems, of Books and Bookmen from the earliest Times to Recent Years ” (Stock, 5.3.), a volume of the Book-Lovers Library, and a complement to Mr. Gleeson White's “ Book-Song” in the same series, which contained the more modern verse of this kind.

In “ The Ascent of Woman” (Lane, 3s. 6d. net), Mrs. Roy Devereux has reprinted her six articles from the Saturd y Review of last year, adding an introduction “ On the Criticism of Woman," and seven papers entitled collectively “On Her Looks." The book is smartly written. The author has the faculty of saying half-truths with an emphasis that gives them somewhat of the charm of a paradox. Still there is good in the volume, and it is cal :ulated to make people think.

“ Travel and Talk” (Chatto, 21s.) is the characteristic title of two characteristic volumes in which Mr. Haweis has recorded notes of his impressions during the journeys (amounting in the aggregate to 100,000 miles), which he made in 1835-93-95. - There are any number of good things in the volumes which can be dippel into at any part like the dictionary. Mr. Haweis is one of the

brightest and most modern of writers, and his book here gives us glimpses of all sorts and conditions of men, and all manner of interesting places in the regions beyond the sea. Mr. Haweis “threatens” to publish two more volumes, dealing with his travels in Europe from 185585. When I receive them, you will be sure to find them in your parcel.

THE babies offered for adoption now much exceed in

number those desirous of adopting children, con

sequently the babies have to wait their turn, and must be on our list longer than at first, when the balance was on the other side. As the object of my work in attempting this department is to be the medium of finding children for foster-parents who are without children, yet feel the desire to fill up the blank in their hearts and homes by adopting as their own some of the homeless among the little ones, the work, from the foster-parents' point of view (which is the point of view of the Baby Exchange), does not suffer from the preponderance of the children.

I wish now to state explicitly that no help can be given from the Baby Exchange to those foster-parents who wish for a premium or other payments with the children. A number of letters come with such requests. From this date, no such letters will be noticed, but at once consigned to the wa-te-paper basket.

The mother of two little boys, respectively eight and five years of age, would be glad to have them adopted. Owing to the death of her husband she is left in very poor pecuniary circumstances. The two boys are goodlooking and intelligent; they are grandsons of one of Her Majesty's Indian Judges.

The following is the usual monthly list of babies off-red for adoption:

I have stated this repeatedly, and I have now to add that I shall no longer acknowledge any letters that are sent to me by persons who desire to use the Baby Exchange as a means of putting money into their pockets. The Exchange was started, and is maintained free of all expenses to either party, in order to ascertain whether it is possible to meet a want which undoubtedly exists, by enabling childless couples to furnish their households with children who, if not adopted, would be left without parents and without friends in the world.

PREFACE TO VOLUME VI. The sixth “ Annual Index” issued from the REVIEW OF REVIEWS office makes its appearance this month, and in size, completeness, and price it is an advance upon its predecessors. The following is the Preface to the new volume :

Pity the troubles of a poor Indexer! Given the following conundrum, how many persons are there who would be able to solve it? How should an article entitled “The Elephant in Politics,” which appeared in one of the reviews last year, be entered in the Index? The Elephant in Politics? Under “Elephant,” under “Politics,” under “Natural History," or how? The article in question was really a more or less satirical criticism of the career of Sir William Harcourt. Another conundrum, even more difficult to solve, is how to index “ The Emperor's New Clothes!” This article really referred to the Irish land question. These two instances illustrate in a vivid fashion the kind of problems which Miss Hetherington and her staff, to whose ingenuity and industry we owe this “ Annual Index to Periodical Literature," have continually to solve. It is no use to index articles merely by their titles. Every article needs to be understood before it is indexed, if the indexer is not to be a mere mechanical rearranger of alphabetical sequences. An index of titles is indeed the least useful of all indexes, because people rarely remember the exact titles of articles.

In presenting the sixth “ Annual Index” to the student, the statesman, and to the continually increasing and most important class of public librarians, I do so with cheerful confidence that the new volume, despite its necessarily increased price, will be welcomed more cordially than ever by a constantly widening circle of readers. For when the Index is once used, it soon

used, it soon becomes recognised as indispensable.

The periodical literature of the English-speaking world tends every year to become more and more a microcosmic reflection of the whole life and movement of that world. Daily papers are too voluminous to be indexed together in one index; nor, with the exception of the Times, do any of them attempt to index even their own news and articles. No single magazine, however, covers the whole ground of current events, but when we index over 170 monthly and quarterly periolicals, we do indeed get something approaching a rude mecum to the history of the year, not only in the realm of action, but in the still more important region of speculation and aspiration—the astral plane in which all things must first exist before they materialise into fact.

Of course, this Index makes no pretence at being absolutely exhaustive. Were it so, the reader would never be able to see the wood for the trees. Our indexers are the first embodiment of those dread sisters the Norns, who sit in judgment upon the writings of mortals. But they are the most lenient of their race, for they admit many an article to the immortality of indexed reference which finds no other admittance within the portals of the Temple of Fame. The author-index, however, is still somewhat ruthlessly repressed within narrow limits. If we had more demand for our Index, we could emblazon the names of more authors in its columns; as it is, we sacrifice the authors to their articles,

believing that parental fondness will soften the pangs of immolation.

The curious in statistical matters, such a man, for instance, as Mr. Schooling, who contributes diagrammatical essays to the magazines, might from this volume construct an interesting table displaying the relative popularity of men and things. To intrinsic worth, the comparative immensity of bubble in the magazines affords no guide, but it certainly indicates the extent to which the more conspicuous among our conteinporaries are discussed in the magazines. Death, of course, brings the work of life to the memory of the living. Hence in this volume Robert Louis Stevenson occupies a prominent place, while Mr. Balfour, with his “Foundations of Belief,” laid a broader foundation for magazine notoriety than by his political exploits.

Nor is it only in the rise and fall of individual reputations that the Index is useful as a mete-yard of history. How significant of many things of reaction, and of the ever-shifting phases of social evolution is the fact that the space devoted to “ Labour” has shrunk and dwindled, while the entries under the leading topics of the day, the Armenian Question, for instance, have greatly increased. Even the Venezuelan Boundary Question had begun in 1895, and next year (1896) Africa will be found to have passed all bounds.

But these are general considerations. The real use of the Index lies in its particular application. Only those who have had to write an obituary, or work up a subject at a moment's notice, can adequately appreciate the services of such an Index as this. Even if we are entirely unable to refer to the articles indexed, their mere sequence and their titles afford invaluable help in suggesting forgotten facts, and in directing attention to sources of information that might otherwise have been overlooked. As one who probably more than any other profits by the labours of the indexers, I feel it is but a simple act of duty to advise my brother scribes of the utility of this labour, and to make this public acknowledgment of exertions for which I have indeed great cause to be grateful.

So I commit our sixth volume to the public with a word of hearty commendation, which I am glad to know will be echoed by all to whom the “ Annual Index” has come to be regarded as an indispensable adjunct to their library, and an invaluable clue through the labyrinth of contemporary periodical literature.

SOME OPINIONS. Mr. Arthur W. Hutton, librarian at the National Liberal Club, says :-“I find the Index of great value on account of its careful subject classification.”

The Journal of the Royal Colonial Institute says :-“As a work of reference this Index cannot be too highly praised. ... It can only be described as a bibliography of periodical literature.”

Mr. A. Silva White writes :-“ Having once used the Index and tested its value, I regard it as an indispensable aid to a. busy man of letters and as an up-to-date supplement to Poole.”

Mr. Frederic Harrison says : “I am free to confess that the Index is a signal example of industry, accuracy, and method. In its execution it is a model of what an Index should be.”

Mr. M. H. Spielmann writes :-“So far as the Art Section is concerned, I can testify to the thoroughness and skill with which it has been carried out; indeed, I never saw a professedly lay' compilation handle a special subject with £o much thoroughness and completeness."
