By the statesman, as in the case of the penny postage, the penny receipt, and now the pennv stamp, which is to be used on all bankers' cheque*?

This brings us, lastly, to the most potent of Til penny worths-the penny lifer,,tu-e of th, dav This like a cheap-Jack's wares, „of all sorts and sizes, and of a C3n>id< rable portion we cannot speak in the most praise- worthy terms. As a whoie, however, it is entitled to the greatest commendation and warmest support of the public, One of the latest issues, in the shape of a penny periodi- ca!, has been that of Beeton's Historian." Here is a laudable attempt to produce, for one penny a week a series of standard Historical and Biographic works. This new candidate for public favour will be, then, not an ephemeral penny worth to be rea,l just for amusement's sake, and then thrown aside, 'orn up and destroyed as useless, but a publication of permanent interest and value, to be preserved and ultimately bound into a perfect volume, as each history and biography is completed. That the numbers when read may be preserved iu good condi- tion, portfolios have been manufactured, which are easily convertible into covers for binding. We heartily recom- mend Beeton's Historian" to the notice of our readers, appending hereto the address of the publisher, from whose office likewise issue the very well known and ex- tensively circulated serials, the Englishwoman's Domes- tic Magazine and the "Boy's Own Magazine," S.
