The long period which Mr. McCarthy has spent as a member of the
House of Commons, eye-witnesa of part of the story he tells, the Ion?
nights of research and preparation for, and also the later work of writ
ing his M History of Our Own Times," In which Mr. Gladstone has been
so prominent a figure, have fitted Mr. McCarthy as no other man has
been prepared to tell the story, which is not only that of a mac's life,
but of his country's political life, so closely have the two interests
been combined for these many years.

The book is one of unusual interest, especially
to those who knew the States west of the Missis

long personal experience of life on the plains un

THE LETTERS OF
ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING,
Edited by FREDERIC G. KENYON.
With Biographical Additions, Portraits, Etc.
This collection of Mrs. Browning's letters has been prepared in the
conviction that lovers of Engliuh literature will be glad to make a
closer and more intimate acquaintance with one or, it may be truth
fully said, with two of the most interesting literary characters of the
Victorian age. It is a selection from a large mass of letters, written
at all periods in Mrs. Browning's life, which Mr. Browning after his
wife's death reclaimed from the friends to whom they had been writ
ten, or from their representatives. The letters passed into the pos
session of his son, Mr. R. Barrett Browning, with whoea consent they
are now published. Miss Browning, the poet's sister, to whom many

(Madame Emil BrauD). To these have been added a number of letters
which have been kindly lent by their possessors for the purpose of the

arrangement; but, in order to complete the record, it has been thought
well to add connecting links of narrative, which should serve to bind
the whole together into the unity of a biography which covers Mrs.
Browning's life from the time of her girlhood to her latest years.

among American novelists had he never written
anything but Corleone. . . .
The mere story is of absorbing interest, and pos
sesses the transcendent merit that even a blase and
veteran reviewer is altogether unable to foresee
the conclusion. And yet the sequence of events is
of absolute necessity, following one upon the heels
of the other with that inevitability which in itself
betokens the hand of the master workman. . . .

science, in addition to creating one of the strongest
and most delightful novels of our century. The
