TBe Beautiful Snow.
At about 2 o'clock this afternoon it
began to enow heavily. It had been
raining ior some hours previously and
the snow began to fall with the rain
It was soon all snow, however, and it

Such is tho singular title of a book
received from the. publishing house of
Charles Scnbuer's Sons," New York
It is a translation from tho French, the
author being Max OKcl.. a "name
suggestive of Irish lineage. The work
sees Lnglana auu ingusn people
through Parisian eyes and treats all the
subjects it discusses by. comparison
with France, or more properly Paris,
which to the author isJFrance. It is'a
very readable and instructive work.
Tho author tries to be magnanimous in
his treatment of English' habits, laws
and customs,, but his efforts hardly
ever amount to more than a. libera)
condescension. In his efforts... at
fakness.he tells much of truth, some of
whichis to tho glory and . some to the
