The Child's Own Magazine (S.S.U., is.) can claim the more

than respectable antiquity of seventy-four years. It moves on, too ; in its youth we should hardly have had such a lesson as that about Jacob and Esau. A. tale, "Two Little Zealanders," which will interest its readers, runs through the volume, and there are other good things.—The Rosebud Annual (James Clarke and Co., 3s.) has not so long a record, but we have welcomed it for many years, and are glad to do so again. The illustrations are, as usual, a strong point.
