THE
HE following special announcements for the coming

magazine year can give only a partial idea of the wealth of literary and artistic material to be drawn upon during the next twelve months for the benefit of the readers of the Century. Besides a number of Stories, Essays, Illustrated Articles, Poems, &c., not specified, there will be a continuation of series already begun, as announced below, and of other series in which the Century readers are interested, such as Mrs. VAN RENSSELAER'S English Cathedrals (including a Supplementary Chapter on Westminster Abbey), Dr. EDWARD EGGLESTON'S Historical Papers, and Dr. BUCKLEY'S series on Spiritualism, &c.

ST. NICHOLAS for 1888-9.

AN 'ALL-AROUND THE WORLD' YEAR.

ST.
T. NICHOLAS for the coming year will tell English boys

and girls of the thousands of millions of children of other countries : of French girls in their little black alpaca aprons, and German girls with their flaxen hair, and Italian boys with their dark eyes, and clever American children (the cleverest take in St. Nicholas), and little Chinese maidens with their almond-eyes and long pig-tails, and woolly-beaded African pickaninnies; of the homes of all these children, of the toys of the shy Japanese, of the pine woods of the blue-eyed Norwegians, of the furs and toboganning of the Canadians, of the gum trees and kangaroos of the Australians, of the sharks and clear blue seas of the chocolate-skinned South Sea Islanders—in fact, of nearly everything that amuses girls and interests boys, from the nursery rhymes of the Hottentot mothers to the guns and spears that the Icelandic fathers use to kill the white bears, St. Nicholas means to tell its readers in Great Britain and Ireland. Besides all these pictures and stories of other people, there will be special articles

THE CHURCH MONTHLY.

Edited by FREDK. SHERLOCK, Author of 'More than Conquerors,' 'Illustrious Abstainers,' &c.: late Hon. Editorial Secretary of the Church of England

Temperance Society ; late Editor of Hand and Heart, &c.

THE CHURCH MONTHLY is conducted entirely on non-party lines, so that any Clergyman adopting it

may rest assured that the Magazine will never introduce a partisan spirit

among his Parishioners. THE CHURCH MONTHLY advocates Temperance on the lines of the C.E.T.S.; and Thrift, Sanitation,

Cooking, Gardening, Poultry-keeping, Bee-keeping,and other topics interesting

to Artisans and Cottagers are dealt with by competent Writers. THE CHURCH MONTHLY is particularly suited for localisation. The press throughont the country is

most unanimous in its opinion on this point, and also as to its general excel. lence as an Illustrated Magazine. Booksellers ånd Printers who may be on the look out for a Magazine for localising will do well to apply for specimens and terms. We append

A CHRISTMAS ROSE:

E.

A BLOSSOM IN SEVEN PETALS,
By R.

FRANCILLON,
IS THE TITLE OF THE NEW, ORIGINAL, AND REMARKABLE STORY WHICH WILL FORM
GRANT & CO'S CHRISTMAS NUMBER FOR 1888.

Fifteenth Year of Publication. The story touches the obscure but interesting Jacobite plots. The scene is laid partly in the city of Gloucester, partly on the borders of what was then the almost savage region of the Forest of Dean. There is not a character or incident in this strange story, however unlikely or romantic it may seem, which is not needful to account for the question which was submitted to some barrister learned in the law for his opinion in the days of the grandfathers of many persons who are now living.

'A CHRISTMAS ROSE,' the fifteenth of the famous series of Mr. Francillon's Christmas Stories, will certainly be welcomed as a brilliant addition to the long roll which began with ‘Like a Snowball' &c. &c.

The Collaboration of several of the best English Authorities on Japanese Art, including

WRAPPERS, price 2s. each, can still be obtained. The new magazine is a sumptuous folio, and the greater part of the contents consists of loose plates, very beautiful and carefully executed specimens of colour printing, representing various examples of the decorative art of a nation of inborn decorators. The letterpress, which is to be contributed by Mr. S. Bing, Mr. Marcus Huish, and other competent authorities, is at once descriptive and expository, and the new venture, for which we hope all success, will be not merely a storehouse of beautiful things, but an instructive guide to the noble art product with which it deals.'
