The University of Edinburgh Journal in its summer number (Edinburgh,

Oliver and Boyd, ls.) reprints Sir Alfred Ewing's admirable memorial notice of Lord Balfour, Chancellor of the University for nearly forty years. It also pays a farewell tribute to Professor Baldwin. Brown, who is retiring from the Chair of Fine-Art after half a century of strenuous and fruitful labour. The Journal belongs to the more severe type of academic periodical, but its stern pages of history and news must not lead the stranger to suppose that the light-hearted Edinburgh student is extinct.
