The Public Schools' Year-Book, 1896. (Sampson Low, Marston, end Co.)--:This

is a useful volume, of which we have spoken in praise more than once. All needful particulars as to the staff, the endowments, the method of education, &c., are given for some sixty schools. We do not understand on what principle the list is made out. Here are some of the absentees :—Reading ; Pelee School, Cambridge; Derby; Lincoln; Aldenham ; Sutton Valence ; Magdalen School, Oxford; High School, Oxford; Epsom Medical College ; Leamington ; St. Peter's, York. Perhaps the " Three Public School Men" would oblige us by a definition.
