Dr. Briggs himself contributes a criticism of the churches for insisting on non-essential parts of their creeds. Forum Pub. Co., New York, N. Y. A never failing charm of The Ladietr Home Journal is that it isalwaysabreast of the season.

Quite as timely, also, are the portrait sketch of Lady Agnes Macdonald, the wife of Canada's premier; Sister Rose Gertrude'a description of "Life Among the Lepers at Molokai"; Charles J.
