Hut there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it. The action of a certaiu teruperance fanatic who visited a number of saloons on the Fourth aud salled tor his beer and pai 1 lor it, for the parpose of making cumplaiiits against saloon keepers will not bc endorsed by a majority of temperance men. They don't believe in that way of doing business, and the individual should be frowned down by every decent man in the cummunity. If oue is obliged to viólate his plcdge to carry out his temperance ideas, we don't believe the cause can bc benelitted, and we are not alone in this opinión. We have heard a number of temperance men express themselves on the subject and they stand in the same position. Prof. C. K. Adama' new book, a manuelof Hislorical Literature, is to be published this su turner by Harper, In the forin of their student series. Tüe work was undertaken aoveral years ago by Prof. Adama and President White, of (Jornell, and when the latter was appointed Minister to Berlin he expected to flnd sufficient leisure to accomplish his portion of the work. But he found this to be impossilile, and Prof. Adams has aecordinely uuderttiken and completed the work alone. It ia a book about books, and is descriptivo of the best historical books, aacient and modern, iu the English, French, and Germán languages. The manuel is designed for students, historical readers and collectors, and there is no work of asimilar character in any language. As the historical literature of each country is taken up, a descnption is first given of tho general histories of the country, th eir defects, excellencics, and particular valué being pointed out. Next the histories of Uraited or purticular periods, the histories of civilization and progress, and last special book and magazine articles are treated in a similar manner. It will tlius be seen that the work representa a vast amount of historical research and will be an invaluable aid to the uistorical student in simplifying and directint; his studies. The nianuel was begun over four years ago, and Prof. Adams spent the estire surumer of 1880 in the Astor Library, New York, in prosecuting nis labovs upon the work . It will be pub lished before
