LITERARY BUREAU. MACMILLAN'S FORTHCOMING BOOKS An account of the recent "Campaign in by Colonel H. D. Hutchinson, Director of Military Education in India, will be published in October. The narrative is primarily based upon letters contributed to The Times, but the author has also had access to all available material from official sources, and has collected information from officers engaged in the different parts of the campaign. It is therefore likely to be regarded as the most authoritative record of the expedition. In a volume of West African Studies Miss Mary Kingsley will supplement the delightful volume of Travels in West Africa," which was published last year. The "Studies" deal with the early history of discovery and of trade in that interesting region, and with native methods of healing and fishing, besides giving many further observations and speculations on the fascinating subject of Fetish. Meanwhile, under the title Nine Years on the Gold Coast," Mr. Dennis Kemp will give the results of hia experiences as a Wesleyan Missionary, and of the mtxmate acquaintance which he thus formed with the native population. Both this and Miss Kingsley's book will be fully illustrated. The Hon. John Fortescue is engaged upon a History of the British Army, and the first volume is expected to appear before the end of the year. Mr. Fortescue has already written a History of the Seventeenth Lancers," and contributed an excellent volume on'' Dundonald to the series of English Men of Action." Last year he made a hit in quite another field of literature with his delightful Story of a Red Deer," a book which has been deservedly compared with Kingsley's "Water Babies" for its thorough sympathy with animal life. "The Life and Letters of Edward Thring," the famous Head Master of Uppingham, by Mr. George R. Parkin, is now on the eve of publication. The work is practically a history of the new formation, under Thring, and the complete rebuilding, in every sense of the word, of Uppingham School, apart from comprising the life, diary, and correspondence of a strong personality. It contains also many reminiscences of life at Eton in the" thirties." This month will be published a romantic story of Moorish life in the Riff Country and in Tangier by Mr. A. J. Dawson, whose last novel, God'a Foundling, wab well received in the bsginnim? of the year, and whose West African and Australian Bush stories will be familiar to njosfc readers of fiction. "Bismillah" is the title chosen for Mr. Dawson's new book, which may be regarded as the outcome of his somewhat adventurous experiences in Morocco last year. The Life and Letters of Henry Cecil Raikes, 1838-91," by Henry St. John Raikes, will shortly be published. The author of this memoir statea thatlhe has selected from a large mass of material such events as only appear either to have ?eraonal value, or to be of publio interest. n the latter portion of the work, dealing witU Mr. Raike's career at the Post Office, I havo hesitated, where in the interests of truth seemed necessary, to lift the official veil which Z often tended to obscure actions, and to or« t false impressions in the mind of the publio > The work will form another link in the interest- ing history of the General Post Office. Mr. Burford Delannoy—the actor-author— announces the publication of another volume of short theatrical stories, bearing the somewhat untheatrical title of The Missing Cyclist." His last volume, which attained a measure of success, was entitled "The Comedian's Christmas Dinner." The publishers are Messrs. Simpkin, Marshall and Co.
