REVIEWS. BAILY'Si MAGAZINE', The October number of "Baily's Magaizine" deals with a rich variety of topics. Sir Lees Knowles, athlete and n 4 horse-breeder, furnishes the subject of the portrait, and biographical sketch. Sir Lees was famous on the running path at, Rugby and Cambridge, and also as a high jumper; in his later years he has been a prominent supporter of the Hackney Horse Society. Then we have a, "Review of the 1908 Yachting Season," from the pen of Mr G. El. Hopcroft, also well illustrated. "A.B.C." writes upon Pub- lic School cricket during the past season. "Corrigeen" treats of various matters in his "The Art of Angling," underhand casting, spinning, and grayling fishing being among them. "Quid's" view on the county championship are epitomised in the title he selects for his paper, "The County Cricket Circus." Unquestionably county cricket, practically monopolises the season, and the suggestion that only eight counties should be considered as in the first class will commend itself to many. Mr Hugh Henry's story, "The Bally upp an Harriers and their Great Run," recalls some famous passages in the writings of Messrs Somerville and Ross in its breezy humour and admirably suggested Irish atmosphere. Professor C. E. Curtis writes on "Aboretums and Nature Study." Colonel Bairnsfather gives a, sketch of Polo as played among the Frontier tribes of India. Mr Morgan Watkins in "Enemies of the Trout" deals with poachers, human, furred, and feathered. Mr Alan Haig- Brown writes on "The Mallard," which, as he says, is ruined as a, sportsman's bird by hand-rearing. "The Sporting Per- sonalities" comprise stories of famous athletes now in the House of Commons, and a tossing story by the Hon. F. S. Jackson. "Baily's Magazine" is publish- ed at Is. by M'essrs Vinton and Co., Ltd., 8, Bream's Buildings, London, E!.C. I GOOD ENOUGH FOR, HIM. "The S-amoy aid's ways of living are not ours, his attitude towards soap and water is distinctly unfriendly, ventilation is a modern principle with which he will have nothing to do, and he does not appreciate the value of cooking: when he knows per- fectly well that raw food, be it, fish, or flesh, will serve him quite well and give no trouble. writes a contributor to the October "Windsor." "But he is a, good fellow, tolerant of strangers, hard work- ing, brave, and contented with a, very lit- tle so long as it includes "vodka," the Russian whisky, in which rye, barley, or potatoes should play a, prominent part. The stuff that the Sainoyads) and the traders' drink is made, of has not even a nodding acquaintance with corn or root crops, but men who lead a, very healthy life in the Arctic Sea can endure the cold without and the heat- within." WINDSOR MAGAZINE. The October "Windsor Magazine" is a, remarkably varied autumn number, con- taining, complete in the one issue, a long story of romantic interest by Justus Miles Form an, a, stirring adventure on the high seas by Louis Tracy, author of "Rainbow Island" and "The Pillar of Light," and a remarkably interesting study of farm life by Mrs Stepney Rawson, finely illus- trated by Gunning King. Other short stories, grave and gay, by Keblel Howard, Norman Innes, Frances Rivers, Owen Oliver and Reginald Turner make up. a. notable fiction programme. And the articles of the number include one on "The Sheffield Musical Festival," accom- panied by many portraits of the artists engaged, "Sea,-Training for Boys," and a vivid study of animal life by Charles G. D. Roberts. The, fine art feature of the number deals with "The Work of Mrs Young Hunter," and presents twenty-one excellent reproductions of the artist's pictures "THE ETHNOLOGY OF GALILEE- WAS JESUS A JEW BY RACE!?" (Alternative Title, "The, Art Book of the Year.') Intense interest in religious circles has been aroused by Professor Haupt's re- markable paper, "Was Jesus a Jew by Race?" read on Thursday last week before the Congress for the History of Religions at^ Oxford. By a, curious coincidence The Life of Jesus of Na,zareth," a, series of eighty water-colour drawings by Wil- liam Hole, R.S.A., R.E., reproduced in colour facsimile, will be published in book form within a. few days. (Eiyre and Spottiswoode, Bible Warehouse1 Ltd., 7s 6d. net.) Pictures portraying the life on earth of the Redeemer have excited unrivalled in- terest from the. earliest days of painting, an interest that has invariaibly been in- tensified when the artist has set himself to do more than realise, a single event. Few artists, however, who. have at- tempted the task have handed to the world at- a, given moment a, record of more than a, few scenes, but Mr Hole has placed himself alongside a very few fortunate, ones who have attained their de- sire. He is also, to be numbered amongst the still smaller class who have been able to illustrate the theme after many years' study on the spot, and with resultant truth and reverence. The pictures were from their first in- ception intended for reproduction, but Mr Hole has been fortunate in bringing them to fruition almost coincidently with. an exactness of colour, thus plaoing them within the. reach of everyone, that even a. dozen years ago would have been deemed an impossibility. The pictures are a.ccompa.nied by Intro- ductory Prefaces by the Archdeacon of London and' Dr. George Adam SmVth, and with Descriptive Notes on the Illus- trations by Mr Hole. The Explanatory Bible Text precedes each picture.
