There is a large sum of anticipation in many hearts as the Holiday Season draws near. The pleasure both of giving and receiving tokens of love and friendship is a delight of the imagination long before the hour for pre sentation arrives. THERE ARE THOUSANDS of pretty things that bring happiness to the recipient, but there is nothing that prolomgs the delight of anticipation so much as a book ; there it lies on the Christmas table, and is evidently a bonk which the loving friend or parent has bestowed. But now a new form of anticipation springs up immediately, one which will last a long time, for nntil those beautiful, mysterious pages are opened ancKread from begin ning to end there is still some new delight in store. Even then much has been read hastily, and one turns back, and gbes over the pages again and again. Were the question asked : What presents of for mer years are now most valued in the household? The answer "Would be almost invariably, the books, for they never become out of fashion, and never grow old. The NEXT QUESTION is where can a good stock of Books be found?
