Two companion volumes—Good Words, edited by Donald Macleod, D.D., and

the Sunday Magazine, edited by the Rev. Benjamin Waugh

(Isbister and Co.)—may be mentioned together. Both are so well

known, that mention is really all that they need. Good Words has the special attraction of a story by that very entertaining novelist, Mr. James Payn, entitled " The Luck of the Darrells," and shows its usual multitude of all kinds of celebrities, theological, social and political, who now are good enough to write for the periodical press. The Sunday Magazine, too, shows a goodly list of contributors, and it has for its editor a writer whose knowledge of his work and broad and liberal spirit leave nothing to be desired.
