Our Four footed and Feathered Friends. By Albyn Malloy. (Jarrold

and Sons.)—This book contains an abundance of anecdotes, " upwards of one hundred and twenty original anec- dotes," of dogs, who, very properly, have the largest section of the volume to themselves, though the cats come near them : the two have nearly half of the pages. These are followed by a. chapter on horses, and this again by one on birds, and another on " Miscellaneous Animals."
