By

ASCOTT R. HOPE.

'We were among the many who greatly admired Mr. Hope's "Stories of School Life" and "Stories about Boys," and when we found that he had undertaken to illustrate French school life, we gladly opened the volume. The stories are interesting in the highest degree; they appeal to the best sympathies of the lads for whom they are written. They set forth the right and the true against the false, and they are full of good, hearty humour.'-Public Opinion.

Aggregate sale of the following popular works, 162,000 copies.

Crown 8vo, cloth extra, gilt side and edges, One Hundred and Third Thousand,

price 3s. 6d., 1. HEAVEN OUR HOME. We have no Saviour but Jesus, and no

Home but Heaven. * The author of the volume before us endeavours to describe what heaven is, as shown by the light of reason and Scripture ; and we promise the reader many charming pictures of heavenly bliss, founded upon undeniable authority, and described with the pen of a dramatist, which cannot fail to elevaie the soul as well as to delight the imagination. .. Part Second proves, in a manner as beautiful as it is convincing, the DOCTRINE OF THE RECOGNITION OF FRIENDS IN HEAVEN, –a subject of which the author makes much, introducing many touching scenes of Scripture celebrities meeting in heaven and discoursing of their experience on earth. Part Third DEMONSTRATES THE INTEREST WHICH THOSE IN HEAVEN FEEL IN EARTH, AND PROVES, WITH REMARKABLE CLEARNESS, THAT SUCH AN INTEREST EXISTS NOT ONLY WITH THE ALMIGHTY AND AMONG THE ANGELS, BUT ALSO AMONG THE SPIRITS OF DEPARTED FRIENDS. We unhesitatingly give our opinion that this volume is one of the most delightful productions of a religious character which has appeared for some time, and we would desire to see it pass into extensive circulation.'-Glasgow Herald.

Preparation for a State of Glory in Heaven. “The author, in his or her former work, “ Heaven our Home," portrayed a SOCIAL HEAVEN, WHERE SCATTERED FAMILIES MEET AT LAST IN LOVING INTERCOURSE AND IN POSSESSION OF PE«FECT RECOGNITION, to spend a never-ending eternity of peace and love. In the present work the individual state of the children of God is attempted to be unfolded, and more especially the state of probation which is set apart for them on earth to fit and prepare erring mortals for the society of the saints. , . . The work, as a whole, displays an originality of conception, a flow of language, and a closeness of reasoning rarely found in religious publications. . . . The author combats the pleasing and generally accepted belief, that DEATH WILL EFFECT AN ENTIRE CHANGE ON THE SPIRITUAL CONDITION OF OUR SOULS, and that all who enter into bliss will be placed on a common level.'-Glasgow Herald.

is passed into blissful Fruition. * This is certainly one of the most remarkable works which have been issued from the press during the present generation; and we have no doubt it will prove as acceptable to the public as the two attractive volumes to which it forms an appropriate and beautiful sequel.'-Cheltenham Yournal.

LAMIESON'S SCOTTISH

DICTIONARY.

Abridged from the Dictionary and Supplement (in 4 vols. 4to) by JOHN

JOHNSTONE. An entirely New Edition, Revised and Enlarged, by JOHN LONGMUIR, A.M., LL.D., formerly Lecturer in King's College and University, Aberdeen.

No small difficulty must needs attend the production of such a work as the present, arising as much from similarities between the two languages as from any other source. However, we may safely congratulate the Editor upon the way in which such difficulties have been overcome. It is not too much to say that the present work is a monument of patient toil and laborious investigation. The authorities for each word are given, while, so far as it is possible to judge, there seem to be no omissions.'- Educational Times.

In announcing the completion of the Copyright Edition of the BORDER TALES, the Publisher does not consider it necessary to say anything in recommendation of a work which has stood the test of a general competition, and which has increased in public favour with its years. Equally suited to all classes of readers, it has been received with delight in the school-room, the drawing-room, the par. lour, and the village reading-room. Many of the Tales have been publicly read. The high tone of its morality renders it an admirable small library for young members of the family.

The work may also be had in Twelve Double Volumes, handsomely bound in cloth, price 3s. each, or in roxburgh, gilt top, for libraries, etc., 4s. each.

Those who already possess the first twenty Volumes are recommended to com. plete their sets by purchasing the four New Volumes, the last of which contains a Steel Portrait of the Editor and principal contributor, Alexander Leighton, with a copious Glossary.
