life and work is one for every young American citizen to read early aná rt-read often. As Miss Helen Nicolay has written the story, it is a vivid and inspiring narative, with the weight of authority-based upon the standard life of Lincoln, written by Lincoln's secretaries, John G. Nicolay and John Hay. Fully and attractively illustrated, “ The Boys' Life of Lincoln " should take permanent rank as a young people's classic.

Little, Brown & Co., Boston, Mass. AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A SONG-SPARROW. When George Wharton James, the author and lecturer, was writing “In and Out of the Old Missions of California," he had as a panion a little song-sparrow that perched on his foot or nestled in his hand. He dedicated that book to “Scraggles," as he called the sparrow, and in response to many requests he has written the autobiography of the bird in "The Story of Scraggles." In this story, which Mr. James has now tenderly and faithfully told is described an unusual instance of a fellowship between man and one of the lower animals.

Houghton, Mifflin & Co., Boston, Mass. DICKENS' Tale of Two CITIES; “ Riverside Literature Series," No. 161. Edited by R. Adelaide Witham, recently head, of the English Department, Classical High School, Providence, R. I. Price, paper, 45 cents; linen, 50 cents.

This edition of an historical romance upon the new college requirement list seems to make it possible to study a novel without losing the simple enjoyment of reading. For this purpose the explanatory notes at the end of the book have been made full enough to enable the student to read without too constant a consultation of note books. Suggestive notes and questions have been added, covering, chapter by chapter, considerations of Dickens's style and the structure of this novel.

Frederick A. Stokes Co., New York THE WILD FLOWER BOOK FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, by Alice Lounsberry. With seventy-seven illustrations from photographs. In this book the author has told a story wherein the lives of wild flowers and those of children are intermingled by the happy incidents of out-of-door life in the country. The language of the book is simple, and relates to surprises in the unfoldings of nature, and wonders at her laws and beauties. The beginning is in early spring, and the end is reached with the oncoming of winter. During this time myriads of buds and blossoms are watched, and the history and legends concerning many plants are told. The greatest number of wild flowers described are those common in the Northeastern States, while the range of others is general throughout America. Mailing price, $1.67.

The Macmillan Company, New York THE STORY Book Girls, by Christina Gowans Whyte. Here is that rarity-that pearl of price-a real book for girls. The four sisters live and move before the reader with the sharpness and reality of the pictures in a cinematograph.

That there has been nothing so vividly reTHE BEST PENS ARE

calling the success of “Little Women,” is the spontaneous exclamation of everyone who has seen the book. Like that masterpiece of Louisa Alcott, this is the story of a family in which a quartette of sisters play the principal parts, and in spite of an entire difference in the scenes and characters, the resemblance is carried further by the fact that the new book is a delightful tale of the everyday life of girls (and some boys) who are as charming and as completely alive as any who have ever appeared in the pages of a book.

UCCESS MAGAZINE enters upon its tenth year

with an editorial plan and policy differing from

that of any other existing periodical. It aims to be the one indispensable magazine in the home"The Great Home Magazine of America"-interesting and valuable almost equally to the father, the mother, and the older sons and daughters. It stands for the highest ideals in home life, and for national, civic, and business honesty iu public life. While still retaining as a foundation principle the idea of Inspiration and Uplift, it has broadened into a far wider field, and deals with all the stirring, vital problems of human interest-the Work of the World. In the lighter and more entertaining Serial and Short Stories it will present the best work of the most brilliant writers of the day; and, finally, in its Special Departments, covering The Home Life and the Person, lie, perhaps, its greatest strength in the family circle--the reason for the million and a half readers which it possesses to-day, after but nine years of life.
