Lemaitre, J. Les contemporains.

3e sér., 3e éd. "When we read the article upon M. Paul Bourget, or those on the brothers De oncourt, or Pierre Loti, or Jules de Glouvet, or Rabusson, or Feuillet, it seems as if M. Lemaitre was at his very best in treating of the authors of the 'roman contemporain' in all its surprising diversity. But when he writes of Parisian 'chroniquers,' Wolff and Blaret, Rochefort and Henry Fouquier, or of poets like Soulary or Jean Richepin, we feel in every fibre of malice there is in us such a sympathy with the critic, such an enjoyment of every sarcastic thrust,every delicate touch of the critical blade, that we are ready to say that here alone is he in the fullest exercise of all his best abilities. But it is only when we re-read one of his most serious papers that we feel the full power and range of his marvellously varied gifts as a writer and critic."- Nation, Mar. 31.

Bourde, P. La fin du vieux temps.

"Les couleurs en sont vraies et franches, et le drame, tout en étant simple, comme le veut le cadre, est interessant. Certaines scènes même, pathétiques et origi. nales, produisent une impression saisissante. Les acteurs du drame vivent d'une vie réelle, et ils parai. traient plus vivants encore si l'intention dominante de l'œuvre s'accusait avec moins de relief. Mais devant ce parallèle constant du présent et du passé ne perdant pas assez de vue l'idée mère et la thèse, nous sommes tentés de prendre ces personnages pour des symbols et des allégories."

In India it is regarded as a very weighty document of the faith, second only to the Koran and the traditions; in Turkey, according to Khaja 'Aini, one of the 'Ulama, it is esteemed the amulet of the soul;' and Sir J.

"Has had the effect of prejudicing the interests of the Prince in Bulgaria by the unsympathetic tone which it represents as uniformly prevailing in the Court. Dr. Koch, a high-flying Tory of the academic stamp, had a Boswellian genius for recording those remarks which fell from the Prince, especially in the earlier years of his reign, in moments of depression, when the ingratitude of his subjects hurt him sorely, or before he had come to see that the truest road to their hearts lay in identifying himself with their national aspirations. The pleasantest chapter in the book is borrowed bodily from a volume by the Countess of Erbach, describing her visit to Sandrovo, her brother's summer residence at Varna." Spectator, July 16.
