We have two of "Mr. Randolph Caldecott's Picture Beeke" (Rent.

ledgeand Sons),—Oliver Goldsmith's " Elegy on the Glory ef Mistress Mary Blaize" and The Great Panjandrum Himself. It isueedless to praise them. We are interested in learning that the "Great Pan- jandriun " was a schoolmaster. The game of " Catch-catch-who,can " seems to have been a delightful pastime, if one were only young ,enough.

The humours of the shore are admirably represented in Romps at

the Seaside by Harry Farnise, verses by Horace Lennard. (Rout- ledge and Sons.)
