Literary Notes.

The New Lippincott for January, 1900, begins the year with a complete novel, full of fresh sensations and amusing episodes, called The Bread Line," by Albert Bigelow Paine. Of timely papers there are many. "Art and the Camera," by F. Holland Day, is illustrated by an example of this master in a new field of art. Mrs. Crowinshield's description of the progress of the great Paris Exposition, under the title of "The Paris Fair in Outline," must attract both those who are to visit it and those who are not.

Thirty two authors, ten illustrators and eight photographic artists contribute to the excellent January issue of The Ladies' Home Journal. Among the special features are "The Home-Coming of the Nakannies," by W. A Fraser; "The Boer Girl of South Africa," by Howard C. Hillegas; "Where the New Century Will Really Begin," by John Ritchie. Jr.; "A National Crime at the Feet of American Parents," by Edward Bok; "The Minister and the Organ," by Ian Maclaren; "The Autobiography of a Girl," etc. By The Curtis Publishing Company, Philadelphia. $1 a year; 10 cents a copy.

"To know it is to prefer it."


"The Vi al Question of Pure Food" is the subject of an article by Mr. Harry B. Mason in the American Monthly Review of Reviews for January. Mr. Mason shows that many of the food adulterations now common in this country have been practically abolished by legislation in England and elsewhere.

We cannot all be elocutionists or public readers-most of us are not aiming to--but we can all appreciate sound, helpful advice on how to cultivate our voice, our every-day, nonprofessional voice, so that it shall express just what we want it to express--that it shall be our servant, not our master. It is just along these lines that Emma V. Sheridan, herself an actress and elocutionist, writes in Werner's Magazine for December, under the title, "The Every day Voice."

The December magazine number of The Outlook, dated December 2d. is the eleventh annual book number, filled largely with illustrated special articles on new and recent books, and on interesting literary topics. The scores of advertising pages in themselves furnish a valuable and complete guide to holiday books. $3 a year. The Outlook Company, New York.

Gildersleeve Lodge Latin Books

Cicero's Orations.

Prepared for the GILDERSLEEVE-LODGE LATIN SERIES by ROBERT W. TUNSTALL, the long-time Principal of Norfolk Academy, Norfolk, Va. The work of a teacher of long experience includes only what is essential to its scope as a college-preparatory text-book. It is a teacher's and pupil's book, possessing the qualities necessary to make it thoroughly teachable.

The text of each speech has been broken into paragraphs, and a running argument showing the trend of the Latin inserted at the breaks. This will enable the average pupil of fifteen or sixteen to translate the text with intelligence and interest.

The book is graded. The speeches against Catiline, for example, are treated in a more elementary manner than any of the others. In the commentary on these speeches, occasional hints are given on the difficult art of translation. The Ninth Philippic has been added as material for practice in sight


The copious vocabulary is especially helpful in the use of English synonyms. xxxiv + 585 pages. Price, $1.20.

Selections From Ovid

with Introduction, Notes and Vocabulary, is designed primarily to serve as an introduction to Latin poetry, for which Ovid seems to be peculiarly well adapted because his style is comparatively easy and his subject matter interesting.

This edition is the work of an able scholar and experienced teacher, JAMES N. ANDERSON, M. A., author of "On the Sources of Ovid's Heroides." In the Commentary the editor has endeavored to give all the information necessary to an intelligent reading of the text, without the addition of extraneous matter unsuitable for those students for whom the book is intended.

The Proverbs and Short Selections at the close of the text have been added, not only for their own intrinsic merit, but also to afford material for sight translation where the teacher may find it desirable. The vocabulary is full. x + 258 pages. Price, 75 cents.

Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar.

Edition of 1894. Revised and enlarged by Prof. Basil L. Gildersleeve, of Johns Hopkins University, and Prof. Gonzalez Lodge, of Bryn Mawr College. x + 550 pages. Price $1.20.

This edition of the Grammar has been received with warmest approval and highest appreciation of leading classical educators of this country and of Europe.

"I am confident that, as a whole, it is a marked advance one very predecessor, and the best guide, now accessible to students, to a sound acquaintance with the language.' CHARLTON T. LEWIS, New York, author of Latin Lexicons. "I regard it as the most scholarly, and in many respects, the most satisfactory Latin Grammar that has ever appeared in the English language."-HARRY THURSTON PECK, Ph. D., L. H. D., Prof. of Latin, Columbia University, New York.

Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar (School Edition). By Prof. Basil L. Gildersleeve and Professor Gonzalez Lodge. This manual has been prepared in response to the demand for a briefer Latin Grammar based on the Gildersleeve-Lodge work of 1894. Historical detail and grammatical exposition intended for advanced students have been mainly omitted, and the phraseology has been simplified whenever it was possible without a sacrifice of scientific exactness.

The book has about three-fifths as many pages as the larger Grammar, but it has not been abridged to a skeleton. It is still suited to serve the average student throughout his course in school and college. Much attention has been paid to the typography. The section numbers are the same as in the Irager grammar. This facilitates reference to either grammar. vi+ 330 pages. Price 80 cents.

Also, just issued, LATIN COMPOSITION, by Professors Gildersleeve and Lodge, designed for the use of Freshmen at College, or the highest classes of preparatory schools. 192 pages. Price, 75 cents. Other books in preparation. Correspondence invited.
