A Giant Skeleton. If any credence can be given to the Calvert Central Texan, people in that part of Texas are consider ably exercised over the unearthing of the skeleton of a giant near Smiley's Crossing, on the Brazos. It says that the kneecap, under jaw or chin piece, and one tooth "were brought to town, and after aiam ination were pronounced by some to be those of a human being. The tooth measured from nine to eleven inches in lengh and six inches across the surface, the enamel of the tooth being well preserved, and it having two roets, and all presenting the appearance of a human molar tooth. The kneecap and chin were only partially preserved, and were in the possession of some gentlemen who intend taking them to Alabama. The kneecap could hardly be forced l.wm MvnAf sar1r TAt p clcplo- miAS Mhig ton measures fifteen feet from the knee joint to the tip of the should ers "It. is almost." adds the cau tious chronicler, "if not quite un- a a . . 1 t .1 reasonable to suppose inis 10 oe me remains of a human beincTi but we do not undertake to say it is not. A Newspaper Publisher Fazzled. Last November a provincial newspa per published a puzzle, and incautious ly offered the value of a year s subscrip tion to any person who sent in a correct answer. If the offer had restricted siin ply to subscribers, that would probably have been the end of it; but the number of people who are glad to get a paper for nothing was scarcely to be estimated till the other journals copied the paragraph; and the one that made the original offer now has on hand over one thousand aa- wers to the puzzle, accompanied with re quests to transmit the paper at once. If ti cost nothing to print and post a newspaper, this would be a capital way to acquire a large list of readers; but it does cost something, and now the pro prietor finds it necessary to plead a typographic error in his offer in order to avoid his self imposed obligation to a hungry public. As for that public, there are some who will indulge in severe re flections on the avidity with which peo ple alwayaeeize.on something when they get it for nothing, but see we in the ind ent evidence that knowledge is univer sally desired, and that the newspaper is properly deemed the best diffuser of it. The Iloosac Tunnel. The Hoosac Tunnel, completed, is four miles long, has cost the labor of an immense number of men for many years the expenditure of $13,000,000 and the Bacrific of J 42 lives. . It is stated that it will take a loaded -freight train forty minutes to pass through it. Transport ation companies and -shippers are re presented to be eager to avail themselves of its facilities for shortening the dis tance between-New England cities and the West,! and great expectations of in crease of business .are based thereon. ' SCRIBNER'S MOXTHLY, "The Great National Magazine," Enters upon a new year its ninth vol ume) with the November number, with broader plans and larger enterprise than ever before, and with the ambition it has maintained from the first, to demonstrate itself to be the brightest, the strongest, the most beautiful, and in ever way the tlte best popular , Magazine in the vorld. Uurine the year it will present such marvels of illustrative engravings as no popular magazine has ever been able to publish. Its writers will be, as they have been, the choice and chosen liter ary men and women of America. Among the attractive features of the year will be a new serial novel. "THE STORY OF SEVENOAKS," by J. G. Holland. A series of papers rrom various pens on "AMERICAN LIFE A SCENERY," including descriDtive rjatiers on Ameri can cities, will open in January with a narrative of Western Discovery and Adventure, by Major Jrowell. whose de scent of the Colorado is one of the most famous exploits of Western travel. This series will rival"! he iirent south pa pers in the magnificence of ita illustra tions, whilst possessing greater variety and wider interest. Also another illus trated series: ' A FARMER'S VACATION IN EU ROPE," Six articles recounting the experience of a well-known American farmer and en gineer (Colonel Waring, of Ogden Farm, Newport, R. I.) daring a tour through some of the less frequented parts of Western Europe, in the autumn of 18 6. A series of papers of great interest on FRENCH LITERATURE AND PARISIAN LIFE by Albert Rhodes, with illustrations by French Artists, will appear during the year. "THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND." Or, "The Modern Robinson Crusoe," Jules Verne's latest story, will be con tinued, with its illustrations. A story, by Saxe Holm. "MY TOURMALINE," begins in November, and will run for three or four months. There will alo be other Novelities and Shorter Stories by leading American and English Story Writers. The Magazine will continue to hold its pre-eminence in this regard. The Essays, Reviews, and Editorial Pa pers will, as heretofore, employ the ablest pens in both Europe and Ameri ca. Home and Society, which has grown in favor and in excellence from the first, will be made more attractive, useful, and valuable in its influence on the so cial life and culture of the American people. The Etchings will be still furth er improved, and there will be greater variety in this department. Scribner's Monthly, by the verdict of both the English and the American press is "The Best of all the Monthlies." The Eight Bound Volumes of Scrib- ner constitute an Illustrated Library of more than 6,000 octavo pages. They contain more than a Dozen Splendid Serial Stories, nearly One Hundred Shorter Stories, more than a Thousand Separate Articles, Essays, Poems, Edi torials and Reviews, embellished with nearly Two Thousand Illustrations. We have reprinted at great expense the earlier volumes, and now offer a limited number at reduced rates in connection with subscriptions. No- other oppor tunity will probably ever be given to get complete sets of this unrivaled Monthly, the expense of reprinting in small edi tions being so great as to be prohibitory.

A Book for Bots ud Girls. Of this book Charles Dudley Warner writes: "In the bound volume of St. Nicho las, with its glory of red and gold, we have a permanent addition to the liter ture of the young. . Never before has so much literary and artistic talent co-operated in the service of children. It is a continual educator of their taste and of their honor and courage. I do not see how it can be made any better, and if the children don't like it I think it is time to begin to change the kind of children in this country." ST. NICHOLAS FOR 1875. . The prospectus of the second volume shows that there is to be no falling off', but an increase in its literary and pic torial attractions. Among other attrac tive features are TWO SPLENDID SERIAL STORIES. "THE YOUNG SURVEYOR," " by J. T. Trowbridge, author of the Jack Hazard Stories, etc. "EIGHT COUSINS," by Louisa M. Alcott, author of "Little Women, etc. The peculiar features of St. Nicholas, which have conduced so largely to its popularity, will be kept up with spirit: Short and easy stories in French, German, and Latin for translation, will appear occasionally, while Jack-in-the-Pulpit, The Letter Box, and The Rid dle Box, will continue to be full of in terest, and the department for very young readers will b enlarged.

April 17,173. rlnl A Kepresentative and Champion of American Art Taste ! Prospectus for 1875 Eighth Year. The Aldine, The Art Journal of America, ISSUED MONTHLY. A Magnificent Concept ion t wonderfully carried out .' The necessity of a popular medium for the representation of the productions of our great ar tists, has always been recognized, and many at tempts have been made to meet he want. The successive failures which so invariably followed each attempt in this country to establish an art journal, did not piove the indiilereuce of the people of Umerica to the claims of high art. So soon as a proper appreciation of the want and an ability to meet it were shown, the public at once rallied with enthusiasm to its support, and the result was a great artistic and commercial triumph THE ALDISE: TUE ALDINE, while issued with all the reg earity, has none ot the temporary or timely in terest characteristic of ordinary periodicals. It is an elegant miscellany of pure, light and grace ful literature; and a collection of pictures, the rarest specimens of artistic skill, in black and white. Ah hough each succeeding number af ifords a Iresh pleasure to its friends, the real val ue and beauty of THE ALDINE will be most appreciated after it has been bound up at the close of the year. While other publications may claim superior cheapness, as compared with ri vals of a similar class, TUE ALDINE is a unique and original conception alone and unapproach ed absolutely without competition in price or character. The possessor of a complete volume cannot duplicate the quantity of fine paper and engravings in any other shape or number of vol umes or ten timet its cntt; and then, there are the chrtmw beridesl The national feature of TIIE ALDINE roust be taken in no narrow sense. True art is cos mopolitan. While THE ALDINE is a strictly American institution, it does not confine itself entirely to the reproduction of native art taste, one that will discriminate only on grounds of intrinsic merit. Thus, while placing before the patrons of THE ALDINE, aa a leading charac teristic, the productions of the most noted Amer ican aitists, attention will always be civen to specimens from foreign masters, giving subscri ber. an tne pleasure ana instruction obtainable ironi home or foreign sources. The artistic illustration of American scenerv, original with THE ALDINE is an important ieature, anu iib magmncent piates are oi a size more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment of details than can be afforded by any inferior page. j. ne juaicious interposition oi landscape, marine, figure, and animal subiects. sustain an unabated interest, impossible where the scope of the work confines the artist too closely t a sidgle style of t-ubject. The literature at THE AisUij,!:. is a ugnt ana graceiui accompaniment, worthy of the artistic features, with only such technical disquisitions as do not interfere with the popular interest of the work. Premium for 1875. 12 very subscriber for 1875, will receive a beauti ful portrait, in oil colors, of the same noble dog whose picture in a former issue attracted so much attention. "Man's Unselfish Friend' will be welcome in every home. Everybody loves such a dog, and th portrait ia executed so true to the life, that it seems the veritable pres euce ef the animal itself. Besides the cbromo, evry advance subscriber to THE ALDINE for 1875 is constituted a mem ber, and entitled to ail the privileges of The Aldine Art Union. The Union owns the originals of all the Aldine pictures, which, with other paintings and en gravings, are to be distributed among tne mem bers. To every series of 5,000 subscribers, 100 different pieces, valued at over $2,500 are dis tributed as soon as the series is full, and the awards of each series as made, are to be publish ed in the next succeeding issue of THE AL DINE.
