We have received the preliminary number of a new illustrated

monthly magazine, The Crown Colonist, whose general purpose may be described as that of making every part of the Empire better known to the others. This it will do by means of articles on the more important projects and activities of eadh part, illustrated, if this copy is any criterion, by excellent photographs. It will also contain special information of commercial value, including trade returns and reports, news of openings for British trade, &c. Since this is one of the most useful purposes of which we can conceive, we wish our

new contemporary every success. The subscription is 12s. yearly, and may be paid either through a newsagent or direct to the publishing office at 33 Tothill Street, Westminster, London, S.W. 1.
