Mr. Goldwin Smith will be a regular contributor. Mr. Edgar Fawcett, author of “An Ambitious Woman,” A Gentleman of Leisure," etc., contributes to THE WEEK a novel of New York society, entitled, “The Adventures of a Widow.” Principal Grant, of Queen's University, will write, among other valuable papers, a series descriptive of a tour taken by him during the past summer “ Down the Kicking Horse and Across the Selkirks." There will be contributions in prose and verse from many of the most popular American and Canadian writers. Art, Music and the Drama will receive abundant and careful attention.

Price, 15 Cents Monthly. $1.50 per Year. COMMENCED WITH THE JANUARY ISSUE, 1884. The increased demand for copies of CASSELL'S FAMILY MAGAZINE during the past year has induced the publishers

to issue a special American Edition, at a price so low as to insure its success from the start. While pure and well-selected fiction is always plentifully provided, the range of Cassell's Family Magazine is by no means confined to that department. In addition to the two serial stories, and the short complete stories always to be found in the pages of every monthly issue, the magazine comprises a large and varied scheme of recreative reading and useful information.

No topic of interest in the Home Circle is ever lost sight of, and such practical subjects as HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT, DOMESTIC COOKERY, GARDENING, EDUCATION and RECREATION are respectively treated by acknowledged experts.

The FAMILY Doctor's papers have long been an invaluable feature of the Magazine, and the editor is h ankful to say that an incalculable amount of good has been done through this most useful agency.

Increasing interest has been developed in the proceedings of the FAMILY PARLIAMENT, which has been opened for the discussion of questions of social interest in the present day.

A more recent department, but one which in its way has attracted no little attention, is that of REMUNERATIVE EMPLOYMENT FOR GENTLEWOMEN, in which a special correspondent of large practical experience furnishes information and hints to those ladies who, from choice or necessity, are impelled to seek suitable occupation for their spare time.

THE GATHERER is the distinctive title of a department which has long earned for the Magazine a high reputation as a prompt and trustworthy record of the great and useful inventions and discoveries of modern times, as they are developed day by day. There is scarcely a country in the world in which this important section of CASSELL'S FAMILY MAGAZINE is not eagerly looked for every month. The ILLUSTRATIONS have long been a distinguished excellence of the Magazine.
