Messrs. Marcus Ward and Co. are always strong in their

Christmas Cards, and their reproductions of one or two of the most famous of Raffaelle's Madonnas on Christmas cards is wonderfully successful and happy. The intoxicated mice, too, are very humor- ously drawn. The other and more ordinary cards are also very skilful and finely executed. All the different types of cards are good of their kind. The more elaborate books in scented cushioned backs are also very pretty.
