Worthinjrton's Magazine for March
is a royal number. Evidently this
vigorous younjj magazine is jrrowin
and thriving, since, thoujjh excep
tionally bright from the start, each
number steadily pains in interest, at
tractiveness and value, and its suc
cess in catering to the varied tastes
and requirements of the American
family at home proves its ability to
give valuable points to many an older
and more experienced periodical.
The third number of the patriotic
magazine, the Blue and (iray. shows
improvement. There are 06 broad
pages with almost as many illustra
tions, every one of them capable of
awakening memories in the minds of
the soldiers who wore either the blue
or the gray. The new battle ship
Iowa is the subject of illustration anil
description; there are biographies of
Blaine. Butler, Doubleday, Lamar;
A Confederate Soldier's Dream, by
B. K. Davenport; A "Yank" in the
Hands of the Enemv, by E. P. Tobie:
and a rich collection of miscellany.
The complete novel in the Lippin
eott for March, "Waring's Peril," is
by Captain Charles Kin";, the laureate
of our little army. No living author
is more sure of an eager audience, or
more eertain to hold and delight his
readers. No one knows more thor
oughly the matters of which he
writes, and no one else can describe
them with such graceful and natural
art. Ilia stories always have a plot;
Lis characters are living men and
women; he makes the barracks, the
march, the battlefield, as near to us
as if we had been there; and he
clothes them in something of "the
light that was never on sea or land,"
for he is a poet, whose poetry in
sinuates itself through practical and
most readable prose.
The New Peterson for March is a
decided improvement on its prede
cessors, admirable as they hav; been.
'Our Women Violinist.-," by FVuncif
M. Smith, is a mo.-t ititerestingpapcr.
accompanied by admirable photo
gravures of all the celebrated Amer
ican women violin players. Another
charming article, profusely illustrat
ed, is "Some Cities of Algeria," by
Mrs. E. C. Creighton. An illustrated
story, "Isrul Camperman's Alibi,'"
by Robert C. V. Meyers, proves that
its gifted author is as skilled in hu
mor as he is in pathos. Palumba's
Dowry, y by Elizabeth Cavazza, is
one of those wonderfully realistic
sketches of Calabrian life which have
made this writer so suddenly famous.
"A Freak's Midsummer Night's
Dream," by Charles Belmont Davis
is as unique as it is delightful.
"Heine and the Monkey's Skin." by
Thomas Wentworth Higginson, and
"Was That Little Fellow I?" by Min
ot J. Savage, are among the gems of
the number. Charles Washington
Coleman, Edward A. Oldham, and
other well-known poets contribute
some of their best work. The suc
cess of The New Peterson is thor
oughly established and is well tie
served. The Review of Reviews is a distinct
American magazine, edited by an
American, Dr. Albert Shaw, whose
collegiate education was received at
Iowa college. No other periodii-.il
covers the news tield and the general
trend of the world's movements
month after month so completely.
A notable article by Prof. H. P. Jud
son. of the Chicago university, gives
estimates of the public careers of four
eminent men Blaine, Lamar, Haves
anl Butler and with them his inter
pretation of the Monroe doctrine.
Archdeacon Farrar pays a brilliant
tribute to the life and character of
the late Phillips Brooks. An article

many features of the March Ladies'

Seribner's Magazine for March con
tains several remarkable articles in
the line of "personal reminiscences
and memoirs" which w ere announce, 1
to be one of the features of the year.
Through the courtc-y of a grand
daughter of the great nuturali-t. J.
J. Audubon, the publishers , arc able
to present in this number "Audu
bon's Story of his Youth." a charm
ing bit of autobiography written bv
the naturalist for his children, anil
aeeidently found in an old calf-skin
bound volume where it had been hid
den for many years. This narative
has never been even privately
printed, anil is the fascinating story
of tiie romantic youth and the love
story of the great man whose person
ality was always most picturesque.
The illustrations are from rare old
jiortraits in the possesion of the fam
ily one of them a reproduction of
George Washington, presented to
Audubon by the general before going
into winter quarters at Valley Forge.
Another striking article of personal
reminiscence appears in the Historic
Moments" series, and is a description
of "The Death of John Quincy Ad
ams in the Capitol." by Hon. Hubert
C. Winthrop. of Massachusetts.

NEW BUSINESS FOR WOMEN.
Bright Woman Succeeds Where a Man
Would Have Failed.
She was bright and pretty and she
dropped into a lawyer's office the other
day and asked for work, says the Kan
sas City Mai!.
-What -can you do?"
"Anything a woman of ability can
do, and more than most men."
-Great opinion of yourself, young
woman." said the elderly lawyer pres
ent. "Perhaps vou thiuk you could
serve this summoifs?"
"I might." said she. "May I look at
it? Yes, I will."
"If you do that you'll bedoitir some
thing we've all been trying to do for a
week. ; He's a slippery fellow: and his
people are all posted". However, 3-ou
may trj- it. You can afford to lose a
little conceit." and the lawyer smiled
At 10 o'clock the next morning the
office door was opened and the bright
young woman walked in again.
"Thought j-ou'd give it up.ch? Found
him too slippery for you? Thought
"The paper is served," said she. It
was her turn to smile now and she did
it. The lawyer swung round in his

"Oh. it was simple enough. I called
at his place of business, looked around,
priced some materials, and then asked
if he was in.
"'No,' said the salesman, 'but I can
do as well.'
"I think not,' I said quietly. -He
has always served me before, and lie
understands just what I want.'
"Oh, in that case you might call at
his house. He will be in to dinner.'
"I did call at his house, dressed ill

my card and he appeared promptly.
