NO MTEIlATl'ItE IX THE \VII,I) WF.ST. There is, writes Violet Stubbing in the "Rook Monthly," a very general idea prevalent in Kngland, that in the Wild West of North America, both the United States and .Canada, every little shack and log cabin contains a small bookshelf, and that the owner of this shack or cabin is equally at home with Dickens and Dante, ^Sophocles and Shakespeare! That appears a very pretty picture, but as a general rule, she tells us, it does not exist! As a rule, the little shack is filled with newspapers, and-this inusl be said for the comfort of the romantic-if llto settler has any-books, they will pro bably be the Bible and Dickens!

A peculiar scct which originated In Boston, U.S.A., and lias Its English headquarters at Exeter, has begun an active propaganda in this country.
