"A single chord vibrates through them. All is for the best in the best possible of worlds.' His figures cease with the year 1883. But what presses upon us, what causes gloom and disquietude throughout the whole region of industry and politics, are the figures for 1884 and 1885. Throughout 473 pages of Mr. Giffen's book we look in vain for light and leading in what really concerns us at this very time. At length, on page 474 and last, is mentioned, A very serious difficulty impending in fact, already upon us.'

"There is a delightful middle ground of traditional possibility in which some fools believe foolishly, in which many other fools and a few wise men disbelieve foolishly, and in which the elect of the Earth neither believe nor disbelieve, but rejoice, though it must be ad. mitted that they go nearer to believing than to disbeliev ing. This ground is inhabited by fairies, mermaids, dragons, sea-serpents, trolls, half-trolls, phoenixes, unicorns, mantichoras, wooden horses with pegs, Fortunatus-caps and purses, witches, ghosts, pots of money under the rainbow, and all sorts of other delightful things and persons, all horrible to the laws of physi cal science, though quite unexpugnable and unabolishable by them, and all licensed by the laws of thought. With this delightful world there are three permissable ways of literary dealing. There is the poetical way; there is the sober common-sense way which deals with them in what may be called an affirmative-rational fashion; and there is the purely book-making way, which jots down everything it can find about them, and is con tent. Mr. Gould's book is an excellent example of the second way, and very good reading.". -Saturday rev., Mar. 13.

Lang, A. Letters to dead authors.

Mr. Lang has many men to talk about, and on almost all of them he has really a good deal to say. In one letter he adopts the manner of Don Juan;' in another, he parodies the iambics of Pope; in a third, he uses the tetrastich of Omar; in a fourth the prose of the Complete angler;' in a fifth the Litanies of Rabelais; and so on, and so on. And he performs these feats not conscientiously and as a pedant, but with the lightness of touch, the independence, the whimsical felicity of a real humorous artist in style. He has airs of patronage that are sometimes hard to bear; he blunders in critcicism with a superiority that is not far short of exasperating. But his readers will forgive him in the end."

It is impossible to imagine a greater service than this done to the fame of Hugo, the whole of whose voluminous work Mr. Swinburne has at his fingers' ends.
