ST. NICHOLAS for 1888-9.

AN 'ALL-AROUND THE WORLD' YEAR.

CT. 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 •prong, and German girls with their flaxen hair, and Italian boys with their dark eyes, and clever American children (the cleverest take in St, Xiefiola*). 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 tobogganing of the Canadian*, 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 boyo, from the nursery rhymes of the Hottentot mothers to the guns and spears that the Icelandic fathers use to kill the white bears, St. Xu-holns means to tell its readers in Great Britain and Ireland. Besides all these pictures and stories of other people, there will be special articles

A Christmas Rose:

A BLOSSOM IN SEVEN PETALS,
By R. E. FRANCIIiLON,

IS THE TITLE OF THE NEW, ORIGINAL, AND REMARKABLE STORT WHICH WILL FORM

GRANT & CO.'S CHRISTMAS NUMBER FOR 1888.

Fifteenth Year of Publication.

The rtory touches the obecure 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 ■trange story, however unlikely or romantic it may seem, which is not needfnl 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. Pranoillon's Christmas Stories, wiU certainly be welcomed as a brilliant addition to the long roll which began with 'Like a Snowball' Jic. *c
