The Federation of Swedish Industries send us Industry in Sweden,

an excellently printed and illustrated volume in English. The famous match industry is briefly dealt with— we should have been glad to read more on the subject. It is a remarkable fact that Sweden produces thirty thousand matches per second and owns a third of the world's match production. We not only commend the matter and the manner of this book, but also the enterprise of Swedish industry in producing it so well in English ; would that our own manufacturers were as enterprising !
