The Patience of Two. By the Rev. Augustus Buckland. (Church

Monthly Office.)—Tbe "two" are a City clerk and the lady to

whom he is engaged. He has a prodigal brother ; she has a somewhat helpless father. Still, between them, they contrive to keep their own heads, and the heads of their kinsfolk, above water; and patience is rewarded. This is a well-written story, true to life, and faithfully enforcing an excellent moral.
