Pearson's Christmas magazine fully maintains its reputation for high-class matter. It contains five storyettes from the pens of 6uch well-known writers as Max Pemberton, Arnold Bennett, G. B. Sims, Oliver Owens, and Isabel Bayfield, while poems are contributed by Ella Wheeler Wilcox and Charles Garvioe; and, lastly, there i.s an interesting article by Sir It. Baden-Powell on the origin and aims of the Boy Scout movement. There is the usual accompaniment of presentation plates printed in a dozen colors and constituting replicas of famous pictures that will be much admired, especially 'At Low Tide,' which was one of the late Sir E. J. Poynter's most successful works, and was hung in the Royal Academy's exhibition of 1913. The frontispiece is a spirited colored engraving of ' The Christmas Waits.' ' Pears' Annual ' will be much sought for this year.
