to Children. 12mo. cloth, pp. 384. New York. 6s. 6d. Fifteen sermons for children. Dr. Newton explains that trains are warned of danger by bells, flags, and signals, and he takes fifteen Bible texts, which he calls the bells and signals given to warn against covetousness, intemperance, lying, sin, anger, pride, disobedience, selfishness, sloth, etc., so that dangers may be recognized and young lives be brought through them safely. The special talent at pointed fascinating illustration for which this Philadelphia preacher is celebrated is once more brought into play.

Naturally she has had great experience with the microscope, and so, too, has Mr. Wells, who gives suggestions as to outfits, preparation of objects, and methods of experiment. Mr. Sargent tells how home-made microscopes may be prepared and used.

It is to be regretted that this useful little book was not published during the existence of the Colonial and Indian Exhibition, as it would then probably have been read to advantage by many of our official and unofficial visitors from abroad. Presenting the views of a foreigner, it would have been a useful supplement to the Handbook of H. M.'s Colonies, published by the Commissioners. But now even we do not hesitate to recommend it to everybody desirous of forming a clear and unbiassed opinion of the relative importance of our different possessions. Prominence is given to the industrial and commercial features of the Colonies, and exports and imports cleverly compared and contrasted.
