"Instinct and Reason" is the title of
Henry Rutgers Marshall's latest book
soon to be published by the Macmil
lan Company (New York). In his
former works Mr. Marshall has writ
ten of "Esthetic Principles." "Pain,
Pleasure and Esthetics." The chap
ters on instinct lead to a study of the
nature of religion and of-the nature of
moral codes. In the chapters on rea
son the author presents a thesis in ref
erence to the nature of variation and
ntU mpts to show that reason can be
expressed in terms of instinct.

"The Atlantic Monthly" (Boston) con
tinues to do yeoman service in leading
and pointing the way to the handling
bf great national issues. In this num
ber the Anglo-American question is
treated from the American side by
Hon. Carl Schura and b* Albert V.
Dicey, the distinguished jurist, who
follows him on the English side. In
fcpite of ess- ntial differences of idea and
treatment, both the distinguished au
thors substantially agree in desiring an
international friendship between the
two countries. Another article of vital
importance is a discussion by Horace
JC. Fisher of "Our New Foreign Poli
cy." The brilliant and characteristic
Carlyle letters are continued. Pro
fessor Mark H. Lidded makes another
vigorous appeal for the teaching of j
English, taking Shakespeare for his i
theme and showing how even to-day
we do not half understand the language
or meaning of our greatest writer. I

The "American Monthly Review of
Bn views" for October (New York) gives
special attention to the developments
oi the pact month in international pol
itics, andi to 1 the lessons of the Spanish-
American war. The editor, in the de
partment of "The Progress of the
World," discusses the attitude of the
Spanish people toward peace condi
tions, the new relations between Ger
many] and' England, the Czar'& proposi
tion for disarmament, the Dreyfus
case in France, England's reopening of
the Soudan, and other serious prob
lems confronting the European Pow

view President McKinley's course in
the conduct of the war to a successful
done and the deficiencies in our admin
istrative machinery revealed by the fa
tal delays and' breakdowns; in the med
ical and subsistence departments of
army management. Two of the con
tributed articles deal with the serious
ten mm of our recent war with Spain.
Dr. Carroll Dunham presents a calm
and exhaustive suiyey of the nation's
expeiience of the pastJ six months in its
medical and sanitary aspects. He
shows where the failures in army ad
ministration occurred, and what steps
should lie taken to prevent the recur
rence of such costly mistakes. Lieuten
ant John H. Parker of the Thirteenth
Infantry, who commanded the Gatling
gun detachment at Santiago, explains
from an officer's,point of view the na
ture, cause end bearing of some of the
defects revealed in the course of that
campalgrn,.and also summarizes the ad
vance in our knowledge of the value
of machine-guns in battle as compared
with heavy artillery. "The Man at the
P*slm" is the subject of- an article by
General A. 8.-Ntttleton, in which Pres
ident McKinley's part in the conduct
of the war is examined. There is a

theories of the social changes likely
to be wrought by our late war with

tributing to the series, "Child Training

work being accomplished by kindergar
ten homes. The first chapters of a love

and timely features.
'•Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly" for

example of a seasonable and up-to-date
illustrated family periodical. Its lead
ing article is "The Rank and File of

merited by Lieutenant Hobson's spirit
ied words in praise of the "Jackies."
i "The Last Days of Bismarck" are In

"The Living Age" (Boston) in its Is
sue for October Ist, is to begin a new
serial story, translated for its pages
from the French of Th. Bentzon (Mine,
Blanc), "Constance," the study of the
life of a young girl. Important ethical
questions, especially that of divorce,
are touched upon, and the story has
a high moral purpose. The translation
is made by Mrs. E. W. Latimer, and is
authorized by Mme. Blanc. "The Liv
ing Age" is a weekly eclectic magazine
which for more than fifty years has
been a favorite with American read
ers. It now begins a new series and
appears in a new and attractive dress,
suggesting "The Atlantic Monthly" in
the clear legibility of its pages. The
familiar cover is to be retained, but It
has been newly engraved and other
wise modernized. "The Living Age,"
being a weekly magazine, suffers some
what by comparison with the monthly
magazines of the first class, if the com
parison is made of single numbers. But
it actually gives a larger amount of
matter each month than any of the
monthlies. Thus "Harper's Magazine"
contains 172 pages each month; "The
Century" 100 pages; "Scribner's Mag
azine" 128 pages; and "The Atlantic
Monthly" 144 pages; while "The Liv
ing Age" gives each month from 2SO
to 344 pages, according as there were
four or five issues. Florence Bell's

Manners" in the "The Living Age" for
October Ist, will be profitable to all
who, as teachers or parents, have any

Marguerite Merington, a dramatic

of attention from students of the dra
ma. "Rita" (the famous novelist), El
len Thorneycroft Fowler and Annie S.
Swan contribute three new short stor

trated. Abby E. Underwood and Alex
Rummler have three pages of illustra

on .*IOO a year. Each article gives the
list and prices of the necessary articles

special articles on various subjects, in
cluding cookery, embroidery work, the
toilet, etiquette, the new dress goods
and trimmings, hotv the hair should be

The widow of Richard Wagner some
time ago authorized her husband's life
long friend, Houston Stewart Chamber
lain, to write, with her assistance, two
articles on "The Personal Side of Rich
ard Wagner." Mr. Chamberlain under
took the work, and "The Ladies' Home
Journal" (Philadelphia) secured the ma
terial. The articles are singularly
valuable in that they give a complete
picture of the man in his home and
daily life, and contain much new mat
ter, while many of the illustrations and
portraits have never been printed.
There are two articles, "His Personal
Side" and "How He Wrote His Operas,"
and the first appears in the October
number of the magazine. John Ken
drick Bangs' newest stories are to ap
pear in the "Journal." They are called
"Stories of a Suburban Town." There
are several, and each will relate some
droll incidents in the life of a small
town which every "suburbanite" will
instantly appreciate and enjoy laugh
ing over. The first portraits taken of
Mary E. Wilkins which she has ever
liked are printed in the October "Jour
nal." There will be nine of them, and
they will show the famous New Eng
land story teller at home and with her
friends around her.
The October number of "Harper's
Round Table" (New York) opens with
a story entitled "The Capture of the
Rita," by Harold Martin, war corre
spondent in the West Indies. Another
Btory of timely interest, the scene being
laid in Cuba, is called "The Dynamite
Pack Train." It tells of the courage of
a young insurgent officer who had com
mand of a mule train that was attack-,
ed by a Spanish column. Other short
stories of the October number are
"Runner-Up, '98," by F. H. Spearman,
a golf story; "A Very Little Fellow,"
by Captain C. D. Rhodes, U. S. A., is
an incident of life at an army post in
the West; and "Jack Forsyth's Brave

The "Engineering Magazine" for Oc
tober (New York) is notable for contri
butions to the study of the broadest
existing industrial movements, as well
as for the range of engineering works
of which it treats. Sir Nathaniel Barn
aby discusses what might be termed
one of the unforeseen developments of
the Hispano-American war—the "Ra
tional Basis for Anglo-Amerioan Co
operation." Wharton Barker's theme,
"The Industrial Interests of the United
States in the Far East," takes another
phase of the unforeseen sequences of
recent events, and indicates, in a most
valuable manner the line of policy
which will lead to business success in
China. E. F. V. Knox reviews most
tellingly the political and legal difficul
ties which have beset electric traction
in Great Britain and so greatly retard
ed Its development. Entirely new light
is thrown upon a curiously neglected
branch of tactics by Mr. Derr's contri
bution on "The Working of Railways
in Military Operations." Mr. Chibas, in
an effectively illustrated paper on "The
Gold Mining Region of Darien," de
scribes a most interesting rediscovery
of long forgotten Spanish workings.
Another illustrated article, which is
novel as well as important, is by Pro
fessor Jacques Boyer upon "The Latest
Improvements in French Lighthouses,"
and Mr. Cargill's discussion of "The
Great Railway Stations of England,"
and Mr. Bishop's account of "Sea Go
ing Rafts on the Pacific," are also ac
companied by a wealth of original half
tone engravings and line drawings. Mr.
Moses develops the "Economy of Steam
and Labor in Isolated Plants," and Mr.
Roland continues his "Effective Sys
tems of Finding and Keeping Shop
Costs." The review and index of the
engineering press furnishes a compre
hensive view of the entire range of in
dustrial literature and puts the reader
lin ready command of the contents of
all the technical periodicals, at the cost
jof subscription to one.

The editors of "McClure's Magazine"
i (New York) secured for the October
number a "human document" of the re
cent war of the highest interest and
value. It Is a diary kept by the Brit
ish Consul at Santiago de Cuba from
the day before the arrival of Cervera'.s
j fleet until the day after the American
; army took possession of the city. Mr.
I liamsden. the author, had been British
Consul at Santiago for nearly forty
years. During the siege he was the
special zuatdian and adviser of the
panic-stricken foreign residents, and
was in close confidential communica
tion with the Spanish authorities, civil
and military. Under the great labors
and hardships of his position he finally
fell ill, and, soon after the surrender,
died. "McClure's" for October begins
a series of papers by Captain J. B.
Brady, U. S. A., relating his own exper
iences and adventures as a railroad
telegraph operator and train dispatcher.
The number contains an account of
"The Fight for Santiago," written by
Stephen Bonsai. Mr. Bonsai was the
special representative of "McClure's"
ln the field during the war, and was all
through the fighting before Santiago.
Moreover, he is a recognized authority
on the Cubans and all Cuban affairs.
His paper is illustrated largely from
photographs taken by himself and from
drawings by W. J. Glackens, the special
artist of "McClure's." Edward A.
Fitz Gerald contributes an account of
the first ascent to the summit of
Aconcagua, the highest peak of the
Andes, and with the exception of a
few peaks in the Himalayas, the high
est in the world. Mr. Fitz Gerald's
party were driven back many times by
distresses and difficulties that by men
of less than the highest courage and
endurance would have been accepted
as insuperable; but they tried it again
and again, until finally the summit was
won. The article is interestingly illus
trated from photographs taken by the
party. Hon. Frank A. Vanderlip, As
sistant Secretary of the Treasury, has
an article on "The Cost of the War."
There has been a great deal of spec
ulation and talk on this subject by peo
ple who were in no position to come
at the facts; but Mr. Vanderlip must
have them all right under his hand,
and his article, therefore, cannot fail
to be read with eager interest.
