OUR readers will be glad to learn that we have made arrangements to keep in closer touch with Vanity Fair—otherwise generally spelt Mayfair-by reproducing weekly the most inter- esting paragraphs and items from the paper of that name, including the Famous Cartoons by "SPY," with the Brilliant and Witty Descriptions by JEHU JUNIOR. "VANITY FAIR" commands the services of a coterie of very able writers, who have hitherto been extensively quoted in leading journals through- out the country. We have now secured the exclusive right of publication for this district, and commencing Next Week, we shall publish SPY'S CARTOONS OF MEN OF THE HOUR. JEHU JUNIOR'S ARTICLES ON MEN OF THE HOUR. TOPICAL NEWS AND GOSSIP. POLITICAL, SOCIAL. AND PERSONAL NEWS OF THE WEEK. HARD CASES. Our "VANITY FAIR" COLUMN will be unique, containing several features to be found in no other service. "SPY'S" Cartoons are unequalled for vigour and humour, while the Hard Cases have a peculiar fascination for all who love to unravel knotty problems. They will also create discussion in all places where people meet, round the domestic hearth, in the drawing-room, in the club, and in the train.
