The August Ladies' Home Journal will be made up almost entirely of fiction. There are promised seven or eight short stories, in addition to Julia Magruder's serial, "A HeavenKissing Hill," which is brought to its conclusion in August.

Sewell Ford and others have con
tributed their best short stories, which are to be illustrated by the most popular American artists.

DESCRIPTIVE LIST OF NEW BOOKS.
A New Sensation. By Albert Ross. 12mo. paper. Price 33 cents. By mail 43 cents.
When Albert Ross went to the West Indies last winter he had little idea that the islands among which he was to locate the scene of his next novel would be those on which the eyes of all Americans were so soon to be turned. In "A New Sensation," which the Dillingham Company has just issued, making the nineteenth novel in the "Albatross Series," a young New Yorker takes a cruise that brings him to St. Thomas, Martinique, Barbadoes and Jamaica, and the story incidentally gives some valuable pictures of those interesting places.
The plot of the tale is based on the advice given by the hero's physician, that he seek a new sensation of some kind, to rouse him from depression caused by illness. He takes the odd method of advertising in a newspaper for a lady typewriter to assist a literary man who is about to take a tropical voyage, and it is on the adventures of the pair thus brought together that the interest of the narrative hinges.
In the preface the author confesses that a certain part of the story is based on fact, leaving the reader to guess where the invention begins and ends. "Marjorie May,' the pretty typewriter, is a fascinating study, and the confessions of her employer," Donald Camran," are written in a naïve and unconventional manner that stamps them with the impress of reality. "Statia Barton" and the other characters that help along the plot are all well drawn. It must be a shrewd guesser who discovers the denouement in advance of the author's revelations.
Angora Goat (The) and a paper on The Ostrich (reprinted from the "Zoologist" for March, 1897). By S. C. Cronwright Schreiner. With 26 illustrations from photographs. Cloth. Price $2.25. By mail $2.50. "In this book for the first time has the Angora goat been dealt with in a full and practical way. Owing to the growing popularity of mohair-the fleece of the animalas a fashionable and very useful commodity in the production of textile fabrics, the Angora goat has, these last few years, come well to the front, and a good deal of interest has been manifested in the animal. Hence arose the need of further information, and at last it has come. To Angora goat breeders and farmers in America and South Africa, as well as to all users of mohair, does Mr. Schreiner's book appeal for support."-American Wool and Cotton Reporter.

In Kings' Houses. By Julia C. R. Dorr. 12mo. cloth. Price $1.08. By mail $1.23.
"Mrs. Dorr has chosen the days of good Queen Anneor rather she begins before Anne ascended the throne, and ends with the accession of the first George. Her hero is an imaginary youth whose friendship with the hapless little Gloster makes a pretty picture. When our romancers go back two centuries for love material, they usually make the lowly born swain love above his station, and attain his desire-but we shall not mar the pleasure of Mrs. Dorr's readers by indicating the course of her story. She is no lover of William III., and draws him in unflattering colors, although he does not appear in person on her pages. Anne is shown in correct lights and shadows, and the story is not only true to history, so far as history is used, but makes entertaining reading."-Public Opinion.

It is a pure republic, with all the advantages of a monarchy, where the problem of human living has been solved. It is the recital of what the young squire saw in this country, where the men and women die only in the fulness of their years, which make
