REVIEW OF REVIEWS.
The July number of the Review of Reviews, which is just to hand, is so full of interesting items that it is almost impossible to pick out at first sight those demanding special notice. The Hague Conference is of course one of the most important matters demanding the attention of the world at the present time, and the progress of the movement is noted in it. To read the articles bearing upon the question will be a capital preparation for the cables which will shortly be arriving, giving news of the conference. The Character Sketch is a splendid one, the subject being Lord Cromer, the Regenerator of Egypt. His has been one of the positions where slight blunders may have tremendous results, but he has done his work magnificently, and the Character Sketch gives a fine insight into the kind of man who has upheld British interests so splendidly, and, at the same time, done so miuch for the Egyptians. Leonard Henslowe contributes an interesting article on the “Route to England via America,’’ which should prove exceedingly interesting - to Review readers in view of the discussion which is taking place over the possibility of making a shorter trip to England through that country. An article on “Starving Russia” gives a terrible insight into the awful condition of affairs there. It makes one shudder to think that while our land is teeming with wealth productiveness l , there are millions in other parts of the world who are suffering the pangs' of starvation. Under the heading of “Books of the Month” are two “Prosperity under the Microscope,” and “The Re-making of the Xation,” which will greatly delight book lovers ; while the space devoted to the Review of the Leading Magazines of the World is crowded with information served up in a most attractive way. There is an exceedingly interesting article on '“The Homo Treatment of Consumption.” The editor states that he publishes 1 it without comment, as it bears upon its face the marks of genuineness, and if anybody could be helped by it, it will ba sufficient justification for its publication. In this issue a new serial is commenced—“Carette of Sark.” The fact that the author is John Oxerw ham is certain to enchain the interest of x'eaders.
