REVIEWS. Beautifully illustrated and containing a won- derful amount of bright reading, fiction, etc., "My Weekly," the first issue of which has ap- peared this week, will appeal to both sexes of all ages.

Several serial- stories are continued, and there are numbers of short stories of great interest. There is also a miscellaneous collection of poemis, storiettes, portraits, and stage gossip, which help to make up a most interesting magazine. „ We'"1 have received a copy of Health and Beauty for- Women and Girls, by Helena Gent, Is. net, from "Health and Strength" Library. 12. Burleigh-street, London, W.C. The book will prove an excellent guide for wo- men of all ages for the improvement of their health. In it are discussed the many obstacles that have prevented women from following the laws of nature. The arguments set forth in its pages conclusively prove that women should not only perform a few well-chosen exercises daily, but should pay more attention fQ the care of their health. The book contains 18 well-posed photographs illustrating the various chapters on the importance of deep breathing, reducing weight, increasing height, etc., and gives simple exercises for strengthening the- muscles, otherwise inactive and undeveloped. In "Harper's" for April, Miss Florence San- ville, of the Consumers' League of Philadel- phia, tells of her experiences as a worker in one of tho Pennsylvania silk-mills. Miss San- ville and a friend, Miss Cochran, obtained work as ordinary mill hands in order to make a thorough study of the conditions in the mills.
