The result is a vivid picture of tropical life, which may be read with unflag-
ging interest, and a sufficient amount of his scientific conclusions to stimulate
our appetite without wearying us by detail. Indeed, we may safely say that
we have never read a more agreeable book of its kind. Saturday Kei'iew.

No intelligent reader of his book can fail to gain a better comprehension of
the social problem of to-day, or fail to receive a certain inspiration from the sug-

Second Swedish Edition (revised and enlarged by the author),
by Rev. F. H. WOODS, B.D. With map and 205 Illustrations.
8vo. S4.00.
Although the book deals only with the progress of the early inhabitants of
Sweden, it is not less interesting, as all archaeology tends to show that there
has been a remarkably similar process of development, not only among Euro-
pean peoples, but among all racrs of the world. Therefore the author's clear
and succinct account of the progress of this people will give the student a clear
notion of the successive stages of civilization through which man has passed.
