FOR FEBRUARY contains the second of Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson's series of charming monthly papers. The New York Tribune says, in referring to them:
"The matter is of itself enough to interest every person in the least interested in literature, and the manner of it is such as to make us ask again of him for the hundredth time, as it was asked of Macaulay, 'Where did he get that style?"
In his present article, entitled "The Lantern-Bearers," Mr. Stevenson refers to picturesque memories of his boyhood.
