'The First Three Months of the War.'

by Dr W. H. Fitehett. (Melbourne: T. Shaw Fitehett.) The war bus been raging for over three mouths, therefore many readers will welcome a book from the pen of the man who wrote ' D«edis That Won the Empire.' Dr Fitehett is the most popular writer in Australia of historical and patriotic studies, and this booklet' The First Threo Months of the War' bids fair to maintain his reputation. In a series of stirring chapters Dr Fitehett tells the connected, story of the war from the early days of August till the end of tho first three months. There are many full-page illustrations and over 100 pages of text. 'Life* for December contains the fourth of 'Life's* war numbers. Dr Fitehett's articles deal with the wrestle of the mighty armies on the German ami Austrian frontiers, the deeper forces behind the war, and tho British and German White Papers. These three articles form a- contribution to the literature of the war that probably no other magazine has been able to show. Supplementing these is a Tovicw, covering many pages, of Professor Cramb's great book. In addition it contains an excellent selection of the best poetry, tho best cartoons, and the Ix-si articles that have appeared in the British nud foreign papers. A most welcome number. 'The Wonder Book' (Melbourne: Ward, Lock, and Co.), a picture annual for boys and girls, with 12 colored plates and hundreds o£ pictures, edited by Harry Golding. The name, or title, is not misapplied. The drawings, caricatures, and sketches are wonderful, while, tho reading matter of over 20 pages is far above* tho average in wit, fun, and interest. As a Christmas present for children there can be nothing better than the wonder book for this year.
