Our Social Bees. Second Series. By Andrew Wynter, M.D. (Hard-

wicke.)—Dr. Wynter is the man to tell us what we want to know. We can imagine the pleasure of meeting him when a new topic turns up in the papers, and immediately getting just the information we require put into the most intelligible shape and enlivened with a number of sly hits. We tarn to the volume before us, and we find there popularly explained all that people have been talking about in these latter days. the Thames Embankment, the water supply of London, wines, the pork .disease, and twenty other subjects as interesting, are treated in the happy manner that renders the acquisition of knowledge as pleasant an occu- pation as that of the bee in the thyme beds.
