Soldier and Servant.

By ELLA M. BAKER.  “Soldier and Servant” is a motto bequeathed to the heroine by the mother who died when she was a babe, and which she early adopts, carrying its sentiment into all of the acts of her after life, the story of which will most assuredly furnish wholesome stimulus to every girl who reads it.  There are touches of humor, and graphic descriptions worthy of comparison with passages in Tom Brown’s Schooldays at Rugby. 16_mo_, $1.25.

Story of Puff.

By MRS. C.M.  LIVINGSTON.  It was truly said of the first edition of this little volume, that no more captivating story of bird-life was ever written, and that passages in it were worthy of comparison with those found in “Rab and his Friends.”  It is the autobiography of a canary bird, and every lover of the bird kind will read it with enthusiastic pleasure.  New edition. 16mo, cloth, fully illustrated, $.60.


A holiday novelty, cut shape of butterfly, with twelve color designs by Miss L.B.  Humphrey.  This really original and charming novelty imitates in outside appearance a large, handsome tropic butterfly; but, on parting the wings, we find between, on a dozen leaves shaped like the wings, the gracefully told story—­a prose poem in fact—­of “Girl Goldie” and her strange adventures with the butterflies.  Miss L.B.  Humphrey, the popular illustrator and winner of the Prang’s Christmas Card Prizes, has designed the wing covers and the twelve exquisite illustrations in colors. $1.25.
