KEEPING ABREAST OF THE WAR.
» "Life," the popular Australasian magazine, continues to provide a more comprehensive view of progress of the war than any magazine we know. The current (March) issue, for example contains in three seofcions, a masterly summary of the fighting of the month by Dr. Fitchett, in which that brilliant writer describes tbe warfare in the trenches, tbe battles on tbe sea?, and finally, indicates in which direition tbe stream is rucnirg. To supplement this main etatemen j of the position of the rival forces j which, with its illustrations, occupies about one fourth of the total isEue of I "Life," there are scores of articles, J pictures, stories and "explanations," j
so that cue feds after readitig "Life, , that he is keeping well obreast of tbe progress of the tremendous struggle Conspicuous emong "Life's" epfciai articles are the following: "Snapshots oftbe Australian and New ZenleDd forces in Egypt," by a ppi cial corres pondence ; ' How tbe News is galhered from the Battle fields," a review of tbe book of (be men'b "How tbe Gerirmn Lnid Their Plans for the Naval Raids;" and '-The Infantryman's Figbtirg TooIp," being a more or leps tfchcicol depcipiion of bow trench warfare is conducted.
We are glad to notice in "Life" a number of excellent poems on the war including several noteworthy contri butions by Australian writers. The science literary, fictional, and eport ill? departments are fully maintained, and a new series of lessons for begin nera in carpentry \s worth noticing by by tboee- and their number is rapidly increasing—who have discovered the sheer delight of pottering round a work bench and ''majring things," be it a dog kennel or a dining room suite "Life" is sold everywhere for s x pence If it is unobtainable locally, readers cannot do better than send 1,6 in stamps or postal notes to T. Shaw Fitobett, 876 Swanston Street Mcl bcurne, for three month 9' trial cub | BOribtion. The ourreut "Life" wil 1 ! come by return, post free, and two other war issues as soon as published.
