f. r October is unusually good, even for that
incomparable lady 's book. The steel engrav?
ing, '-Don't Be Scared," is one of exception?
al beauty ; and so is the colored, steel fashion
plate, with its five, charming-looking, ex?
quisitely-dressed ladies. There are two
colored patterns, with designs for fans, a Hue
of decoration that is now all the rage. The
historical novelet, "The News From York?
town," which bas attracted so much attention
is appropriately concluded in this number, in
time for the Yorktown Centennial." All the
stones and novelets, however, are good ; in
fact, in "Peterson," only the very best are
given. We cannot too often -refer to this
magazine as altogether the cheapest and the
best of its kind. Where only one is taken,
"Peterson" should be the one. for it fills more
wants than any other. The terms are but two
dollars a year. Great deductions are made to
clubs, and handsome premiums are given to
persons for getting np clubs, among them a
beautifully bound photograph album: in
short, the inducements of every kind are un?
