REVIEW OP REVIEWS, The of Reviews” for October just out, has a number of interesting - features. The frontispiece is a full page picture of the Kaiser in nautical costume on board the yacht “Hohenzollern.” The local article of interest is that on “Campaigning in Queensland.” It really gives an account of the beginnings of the shearer’s trouble, which has only just been settled. It is written by one of the men who formed part of the volunteer Brigade, which went into the disaffected area to preserve order; and it forms a very interesting- retrospect just at the present time. Mr A. G. Wales writes on :
“The Awakening of the Oriental Nations.” The Character Sketch is on Mr Albert Grayson, the first Socialist member of the British Parliament The article on “The Second Conference at the Hague, and the collapse of the British policy thereat, makes most interesting and entertaining reading. The review of the world’s literature is exceptionally good. The titles of various articles make one feel that after these pages are digested there is not much left in current events to seek after. The Book of the month ’deals with Lieut., Peary’s “Nearest the Pole,” and is most entertaining, especially in vie’w of the fact that Mr Wellman has had to abandon his projected airship trip. A very interesting feature of the “Review” is the pages devoted to the titles of the leading books of the month, and the index of topics in the month’s periodicals.
