Words of Warning, Words of Cheer.—We can find no name

of com- piler or publisher to this very meritorious collection of wise sayings. There is something for every day in the year, these " somethings " being gathered from a very wide variety of sources, and gathered, too, with much judgment and taste. The form of this collection is one that adapts it for being hang up on a wall, the pages being fastened together with a heading of oak to which a ribbon is attached. The two or three moments given to looking at the "lesson of the day" would not be ill. spent.
