"This book contains a considerable

amount of information upon the habits,

customs, and social condition of the subjects of the Czar. A supplementary chapter on the War gives a fair sketch of the events which immediately preceded the present struggle, beginning, of course, with the dispute about the Holy Places. It is well printed, on good paper, and is every way a creditable and cheap publication."-Dublin Daily Express.

Inscribed to the greater number of Railway Travellers, and dedicated to the

rest. By Angus B. Reach and Shirley Brocks. Illustrated by Leech, Coleman, and Smyth. Crown 8vo, ornamental wrapper. Third Edition, price 1s.

** Few Railway Books contain more racy material than A Story with a Vengeance.' The names of Angus B. Reach and Shirley Brooks are a sufficient guarantee of the fact.

"Students Abroad' is an interesting story, or rather series of stories, connected by a main thread, illustrative of scenes and incidents in France, and is well written."-News of the World.

Tales for the Marines. By Harry Gringo (Lieut. Wise). Fcap. 8vo, boards, price 1s. 6d.

The thousands who have read with so much pleasure "Tom Cringle's Log," will devour with interest "Tales for the Marines." It is full of exciting and amusing adventures, and cannot fail to charm every reader.

"If these are fair specimens of the tales told to the Marines, then we must say that that gallant corps ought to be grateful for the pains taken to entertain them. The volume before us is a reprint of an American work, very like Tom Cringle's Log' in tone and spirit, and containing dashing narratives of adventure on the coast of South America. There is the true smack of the salt water about them, and we have no doubt but the tales will be as well received here as in the land of their birth."-Weekly Times.

Threads of Life; or, The Adventures of William St. Leger. A Novel, by Richard B. Kimball, Author of "Students Abroad," &c. &c. Fcap. 8vo, boards, price 1s. 6d.

**This is a very superior and intensely interesting Novel of the Bulwer school.

Too Clever by Half; or, The Harroways. By John Lang, Author of "Too Much Alike," "Forger's Wife," &c. Numerous Plates. Crown 8vo, in ornamental wrapper. Sixth Edition, price ls.

"This is a pleasant little book of the 'Lever' style, containing the adventures of a certain Captain Sam Freeport, who is too clever by half.' and possesses the most extraordinary faculty for getting himself and all connected with him into and out of every variety of scrape..... The most interesting part of the book is the sketch of military society in India. . A good shilling's worth for a journey, and a pleasant trifle to find in a country house on a rainy day."-Civil Service Gazette.

"The portraiture of Freeport, though extravagantly drawn, is one of the best sketches of the kind that we have met with. It is a study, and we make no doubt, in circles where appreciated, will effect a sensation. The work is appropriately illustrated."Sunday Times.

Too Much Alike; or, The Three Calendars. By John Lang, Esq., Author of "Too Clever by Half," &c. Crown 8vo, 128 pp., with illustrated wrapper, price 18.

***This tale, judging from the extent of its sale, appears to be equally as popular as "Too Clever by Half."
