A NOTABLE NEW YEAR NUMBER. A very brilliant New Year number is provided in the January issue of the" Windsor Magazine," which shows no falling off from the high achievement of the preceding Christmas Number in either variety or im- portance. Among the fiction by famous novelists, for instance, is to be found a large second instalment of Sir H Rider Haggard's fascinating new romance from the career of his famous hero, Allan Quartermain, The Holy Flower," in which the interest of this strange adventure mounts steadily higher, and shows that this is to be one of the most important of its distinguished author's many works. Then there is the second complete episode in Halliwell Sutcliffe's charming new series, The White Horses," in which the author's characteristic style gives charm to a period of English history somewhat earlier than those which he has previously treated with such success, and that master of rustic comedy, Eden Pbillpotts, contributes one of the most delightful short stories of Devonshire life and character that has yet come from his prolific pen. Among the other stories are a very beautiful and touch- ing little romance by Warwick Deeping, a brilliant comedy by Dornford Yates, and a strenuous story of adventure by Fred. M White. Among the articles is an interesting account by Miss N Hadden, the well-known artist, of a journey made by herself and two friends with the Bedouins to Wady Abu Salama, on their annual pilgrimage, which is accom- panied by a number of illustrations- from the author's drawings made at the time. Charles G D Roberts contributes a new study of Wild Life, which is as picturesque as any of its predecessors, and under the title of Famous Brothers there is a second series of portraits of well-known men of our time who belong to groups of two or more brothers of either parallel or divergent talents, the aeries including excellent likenesses of Lord Charles Beresford and his brothers; the Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, and his brother; the two Zangwills Silas and Joseph Hocking the five sons of the late Lord Russell of Killowen Lord St Davids and his two brothers, Colonel Ivor Philipps and Sir Owen Philipps; H B Irving and Laurence Irving, and other men well known in various walks of public life. The ifne-art feature consists of a survey of the art of that versatile Victorian painter of many Biblical and other historical subjects, Edward Armitage, R.A., which is accom- panied by seventeen reproductions from his principal pictuies, including a finely-printed plate in colours from his dramatic painting, Julian, the Apostate." Other articles add further variety to a number of exceptional value and importance which is finely illustrated throughout.
