Next week the series is broken to give place to a remarkable article, by Mr. Ralph, on the Plagtie in India. HAWAII Caspar Whitney has recently returned from the Hawaiian Islands, where he went especially to prepare his series of articles on Hawaiian America, and the industrial and commercial possibilities open there, which is now appearing week by week in this periodical. THE PHILIPPINES John Bass, the now famous young war corre spondent, is sending articles and photographs each week which give, as no other periodical has even attempted to give, the progress of the war now drawing to a close there. CUBA Franklin Matthews, who has become famous as the author of "Wide-Open Chicago" and "Wide-Open New York," is publishing articles week by week which give as frank and truthful a picture of the New Havana as the former articles gave of the two great American cities.
