object of the labour progressing everywhere, the finish reserved to History? Might Italy then become a strong and healthy nation, might concord be established between her and France, and might that fraternity of the Latin races become the beginning of universal fraternity! Ah! that one fatherland, the whole earth pacified and happy, in how many centuries I would that come and what a dream!

Then, on reaching the station the scramble prevented Pierre from thinking any further. He had to take his ticket and register his luggage, and afterwards he at once climbed into the train. At dawn on the next day but one, he would be back in Paris.

MRS. HUMPHRY WARD'S NOVELS.

THE STORY OF BESSIE COSTRELL. Uniform with " 'Marcella." I vol., 12mo, cloth, 75 cents.

"There are masterly touches and striking sentences in many pages of this little volume. Mrs. Humphry Ward's admirers will say that she has seldom written with more force than in describing the tardy remorse of the hard, unrelenting husband." - London Times.

"It has that charm which attaches to the work of few women writers of the age who have attained the rank she holds, and is brim full of human nature — cunning, simple, credulous, and unrefined.” — Public Opinion.

MARCELLA.

In 2 vols., small 12m0, in box, price $2.00; also in 1 vol., 12mo, cloth, $1.00, paper, 50 cents.

Mr. F. MARION CRAWFORD says:

"The task undertaken in producing 'Marcella' was worthy, in magnitude and in interest, of the hand... that gave us 'Robert Elsmere' and traced the History of David Grieve.' The whole impression left after reading 'Marcella' from beginning to end is remarkable for the number of highly finished pictures fixed in the mind of the reader. There are scenes of cottage life in the book which have probably never been outdone in clean accuracy of observation or in brilliancy of literary finish."

Marcella,' 2 vols., $2.00.

"She has, to sum up many things in a sentence, that indefinable and irresistible charm which the best writers among women have, and the best writers among men never have, or almost never."-New York Tribune.

Mr. GLADSTONE writes of this novel in the Nineteenth Century:
"The book is eminently an offspring of the time, and will probably make a
deep, or at least a very sensible, impression; not, however, among mere novel-
readers, but among those who share, in whatever sense, the deeper thought of
the period."

MISS BRETHERTON.

It is

"It shows decided character and very considerable originality. full of earnest womanly sympathy with the ambitions of a beautiful girl placed in false and difficult positions by good fortune, which may possibly turn to misfortune."- London Times.

Town Talk.

"The three stories which George Moore has grouped under this title we do not hesitate to say are his best.' Cincinnati Commercial Gazette. "George Moore is a writer with talent and a future. He has caught the knack of almost abbreviated terseness, and his pages teem with action and flash with color."- Chicago Evening Journal.

"As an imaginative writer, whose art shows a distinct and strong advancement in each successive fiction from his hand, he shows that he is easily entitled to a high rank that will soon be acknowledged supreme. 'The Celibates' are very conclusively in evidence in that direction."- Boston Courier.

"Mr. Moore's skill in the directness of English expression, and the charm of his style, would make the book readable even were it not for the life in the description, the rapid movement of the plot, and the marked individuality of his characters." - Cambridge Press.

"No art lover should fail to read George Moore's 'Mildred Lawson.' The story is the first in a volume entitled 'Celibates,' just published. In common with everything from this writer's pen it has wonderfully vivid pictorial qualities." The Echo.

"In fact, of the whole book it must be said that while the first story is not for the young person, good and bad are not confused in it, and the work is that of a man of marked literary gift and of perception and thoughtfulness studying humanity." - Hartford Courant.

"Celibates' is crisply written, it abounds in undeniable truths, framed in short, vivid descriptions of scenery, portrayals of character, and clever insistent dialogue. It throbs with life, and here and there develops an unsuspected element of humor, and is altogether a book among books, something that imprints itself on the memory and spontaneously endows itself with reality." - Munsey's Magazine.

"The three stories in this book remind one of Balzac. They are romances done with such rude energy and realistic force that one takes them as actual transcripts of life. Mr. Moore is a master of free-hand delineation; he strikes a character into existence with one pen-sweep; but his detail work is almost minutely painstaking and almost perfect."- The Independent.
