Novels, Essays, and Works of Vrnotloal
Utility A Itoproduotlon of tho Manu-
script of Dickens's "ChrlotmnH Carol."
"0. THOU, Mlr AUSTRIA." By Ossip
Schubtn, translated by Mrs. A. L. Winter. Tills
Is a clovcrlv-wrltton story ot Vlonncso lire, full
of brisk incident, delightful sketches of charac
ter, and keen observation. It is wholesome in
tone, humor and pathos arc deftly mingled, and
tho interest is aroused at tho outset and well
maintained to tho end. It affords a view of lifo
among tho haughty Austrian aristocrats that is
almost a revelation to tho American reader. Tho
moral of tho tale is a good one that marrlairo
should bo for love. Thero is a distinctly Gallic
turn to the author's stylo of telling tho story.
Hor touch is always light, graceful, and deli
cately ilrm, and tho rcador is never wearied by
elaborato descriptions or analysis. Mrs. WIstcr 's
translation is admirably done, as all who aro
familiar with her work know is usual with her.
"O, Thou, My Austria," Is published by tho Llp
plucott's, Philadelphia, and for sale In Washing
ton at Brcntauo 's.
TUB CHRISTMAS CAROL. By Charles
Dtclicns. This fac-slmllo reproduction of tho
original manuscript of tho great novelist will bo
welcomed as a real treasure by close students of
Dickens, who aro placed under a genuine obliga
tion by tho Brentauos, to whoso enterprise tho
publication Is due. One feels that ho has got
much closer to Dickons than ever beforo as ho
studies these closelj -written and much-corrected
pages, which shov tho author's method of work
and tho manner in which ho brought his sen
tences by careful emendation and rewriting to
their llnal perfect form. Tho volume is in largo
quarto shape, sumptuously gotten up, with an
interesting introductory history of the "Caiol'
and tho manuscript. Thero were 230 of theso
volumes printed and they will soon become ex
tremely valuable. No more beautiful and ap
propriate Christmas gift for an admirer of Dick
ens could be devised. A limited number of tho
books may bo had at Brentano's.
THE OLD MEETING-HOUSE. By Rev. A.
M. Colton. This is a collection of fugitive and
occasional essavs and sketches written at various
times during his eighty years of life, now col
lected and published In book form at tho solicita
tion of many friends who admired them os they
appeared in various publications. Mr. Colton
writes ina homely, off-hand stylo that is tho chief
charm of his work, aud through most of the
sketches runs a quiet vein of humor. Among
tho titles of the essays, that will give an idea of
their scope, aro "The Old Meetlng-House," "Tho
Hampshire County Ministers," "The Colton
Tribo," "Reminiscences of Boyhood Life," "Now
and Old," etc. Tho volume has been well made
by tho Woi'thlugtons, the publishers. It may bo
had in Washinuton of Robert Bcall.
THE COLONEL'S CHRISTMAS DINNER'
Edited by Capt. Charles King. This is a neat
volume, containing ten interesting and well-told
stories by Capt. King, Lieut. Thomas II. Wilson,
Capt. Edward Field, Capt. Henry Romeyn, Capt.
W. C. Bartlott, Maj. William H. Powell, Col. II.
W. Closson, all of tho Army; Miss Carolino F.
Little, Alieo King Llvington, and Mr. Edward L.
Kcyea. The stories aro all of military adventure,
having some reference to tho holiday season.
They are supposed to bo told over tho walnuts
and tho wine at a dinner given by tho colonel of
tho regiment. The volume is published by L. It.
Hamersly & Co., Philadelphia, and for sale in
this city by Robert Beall.
CHILDREN OF THE WORLD. By Paid
Ilcysc. Translated by Frank M. Gregory. A
novel of great power and beauty is this long
story by tho celebrated German writer. It deals
with tho deepest problems of tho human heart
and soul in a manner that appeals intensely to
tho emotions as well as to tho intellect. Tho
characters aro in tho main convincingly human
and distinct, and while their entanglements aro
not in tho highest degreo dramatic they fasten
tho attention very closely and mako ono un
willing to relinquish the book until tho end. Tho
story is published in Worthington's ncatly-mado
International Library, and may bo had in this
city at Brentano's.
WHAT AILS THE BABY't By John Dcwar.
M. I). This is a tastefully gotten up llttlo vol
ume in Brentano's valuablo and carefully writ
ten "Red Cross" series of health handbooks, and
it deals with the all-important question in a plain,
sensible, and thorough manner. It is a llttlo
volume that every young mother will want in
tho house. It is for salo hero at Brentano's.
LITTLE JARVIS. By Molly Elliot Scawcll.
This Is nn oxqulsltely gotten up little book for
children, printed on heavy paper in clear, largo
typo, and illustrated with six iluo full-pago
pictures. Tho story is cloverly told In simplo
language, and the book will form a most appro
prluto and delightful Christmas girt for boys and
girls. D. Appleton ie Co., publishers, and for
salo in Washington at Brentano's.
Belford's Maoaztnc for December is of espe
