Tropical Trials. By Major S. Leigh Hunt and Alexander S.

Kenny. (W. H. Allen and Co.)—Messrs. Hunt and Kenny (Mr. Kenny follows the profession of medicine) are the joint authors of a book entitled "Duty under a Tropical Sun," and they have now, by request, followed it up with the book before us. This is meant for the use of women, containing as it does a variety of hints and suggestions for the maintenance of health and domestic comfort, and especially for the management of children. The present writer does not claim to speak on the subject with experience, but he has looked through the book, and can at least vouch for its being full in its treatment.
