REVIEW OF REVIEWS. The June number of the Review of Reviews is to hand, and rarely have we come across a more varied or attractive number. As flying machines are “in the air,’’ or some have made brave attempts to be, the illustrated and lengthy criticisms of the Book of the Month on the “Air Battleship of the Future,” will be read with been interest. The Character Sketsh is of one of the most discussed women in the world, Mrs Mary Baker Eddy, upon whom Mark. Twain has lately written a very lengthy and interesting book. The sketch is accompanied by portraits, which are very interesting. Among Australian matters, articles on “The Non-Voting Problem” and “The Goldfields of the West” (the latter from a woman’s point of view), are specially interesting. In reading the latter a light is thrown on the fact that the drink bill of West Australia is so very , much higher than that of any other State. A very interesting section is that devoted to the reproduction of some of the most famous pictures in the world, the paintings of M. Borrissoff, whose mark lies exclusively within the Arctic Circle. The section devoted to the review” of the magaziaes of the world is most complete, and any of our readers who read the June issue will be very generally informed about the latest in thought and action the wide world over.
