Stone’s Otago and Southland Directory for 1915 enters upon its 32nd year of issue. A fair estimate of the growth and prosperity of the two provinces may be gained by contrasting the first with the thirty-second volume. The latter has more than double the contents of its first predecessor. The many directories within the above include those of street and country, alphabetical, trades, municipal _ and county, official and judicial, educational and ecclesiastical, societies, railways, postal and telegraph. And to these is added the New Zealand Annual, which is a storehouse of useful and, to business men, indispensable information about the Dominion as a whole, as well as a handy work of reference for all and sundry. It contains a complete almanac, comprising the usual astronomical items, together w-tih daily reminders relating to public holidays, municipal, and other matters, the dates of important anniversaries, an official directory, an account of the Constitution, law courts, the full text of tho Consolidated Fencing and Impounding Acts, 1908, the Customs tariff with exemptions and’ decisions to date of going to press. New Zealand statistics, and numerous other items of interest and value. The five maps and plans contained in the directory have been specially prepared for tho work, and are corrected to date. Stead’s ‘ Review,’ Deoembor-January, 1915, contains tho usual interesting features and illustrated comments on public affairs. There are also special articles, among which may be mentioned ‘ Federal Finance’ (Herbert Brookes),‘Theßelgians and the Germans Before Brussels,’ ‘ Should America Have Protested ?’ ‘ History of the Month in Caricature,’ ‘Allies versus Germany,’ ‘ Our Mohammedan Neighbors,’ and' ‘ The War as Affected by New Inventions.’
