The February number of the Quiver is, truth to tell,

a poor and limp one ; indeed, the general character of this magazine at the present time suggests the necessity for such a transformation as has recently been made in its companion, the Family Magazine, which is issued by the same firm. The miscellaneous papers are poor ; the stories are fair ; the short discourses only are good. There is no single item in the contents of the present number that deserves special mention.
