qEVIEWS. Messrs. Watts are issuing, for the Rationalist; Press Association, a sixpenny edition of "Last Words on Evolution," by Prof. Ernst Haeckel, the work being hitherto obtainable only in ita original edition at six shillings. The same pub- lishers announce a new book by Mr. F. IL Perrycoste, D.Sc., entitled, "Ritual, Faith, and Morals," which deals mainly with the influence of religion upon civilisation considered in its moral aspect. Besides further instalments of the serial, "The Lauristons," by John Oxenham, there is a complete story entitled, "The Mayor's Clock," by A. W. Arnold, in the April number of "Chambers's Journal." T. C. Bridges con- tributes a thoughtful article on the training of athletes. He says the border line between legit- imate sport and fool-hardiness is not, after all, especially difficult to define. Every person must have a pretty good notion of what he can ac- complish without actually injuring himself, and beyond that limit no one has any right to o. Another contributor writes in an entertaining way about Norfolk Island and its people. R. S Smyth deals with "some early post-office reports," and these provide interesting read- ing. Another writer describes French charac- teristics and customs, and there are many more interesting and informing articles. One of the features of "The British Work- man" for April is the well illustrated account ol the career of Captain Pritchard, the first cap- tain of the Mauretania, who rose from a cook', boy to the proud position of commodore of the great Cunard fleet. "With the Glass Workera of White friars" is another notable article. Frederick Rogers, the old age pension pioneer, describes "How we are making public-housa loafers," and Mis. France contributes a com- plete story, entitled "What a Spectacle!" In "The Family Friend" Annie S. Swan's serial of city and domestic life, "Roden's Choice," holds pride of place. Mr. W Durban, B.A., in represented by a fascinating article on the quaint meditsvalism of Southern Germany. Mrs. Robson gossips delightfully of "Jane Austen's Gallery of Girls," and Miss Jennie Chappell's short story, "The Keys of Fortune," is a capi- ttll example of the freshness and interest at* taching to this writer's work. Of the many ex. cel!cnt features of "The Children's Friend," the PIayhour Supplement shows evidence of iti popularity, not only in this country, but in the Colonies and abroad. For the younger mem- bers of the home circle, there are "The Infants' Magazine" and "The Band of Hope Review," which are, if anything, better than ever. For the quiet hour comes "The Friendly Visitor"- in its cheery orange cover, full of good things. These magazines are published by S. W. Part- ridge and Co., 8 and 9, Paternoster-row, Lon- don.
