We are delighted to receive from Capetown The Waste- Paper
Basket of the Owl Club (3s.), a lively miscellany produced by members of a club which for twenty-seven years has kept up an interest in literature, art, music and good fellowship. The Owl Club is affiliated to the Savage Club and, like it, com- prises men of diverse professions and religions. In a young country such societies are doubly precious. The Owls' book contains prose and verse, both grave and gay, and reproductions of some clever drawings. Mr. Boume's "South Africa : Letter to a Newcomer" is most sensible and deserves to be officially reprinted for the use of immigrants and tourists.
