African Methodist Episcopal Church Review, Vol. 6, Num. 3
			
                            XVI.

             Magazines and Reviews.

  The Thanksgiving issue of the "Independent" was a model
news magazine, a faithful reflex of the world's doings, and of
the nation's religious activity. The colored people of the United
States must have a cordial appreciation for this radical periodi-
cal, which stands so far in advance of public sentiment in
championing our cause, and which stops at neither pains nor
expense in securing reliable information to confound the false
newsmongers of the Southern States. The best way to express
that appreciation is to buy the paper.
  In the December "Atlantic Monthly," Edwin Lassetter Byn-
ner enjoys the unusual honor of appearing twice as a contribu-
tor in the same issue. His clever serial, "The Begum's Daugh-
ter," is continued, and he furnishes a capital historical sketch
of the Bunch of Keys Tavern, the hostelry in which Henry Price
founded the first Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons
in America. Thomas Baily Aldrich contributes two dainty
lyrics-messengers from his vacation exile of the Summer
months.  John Fiske continues his historical studies with a
paper on "Border Warfare in the Revolution;" and Professor
Shaler has a very thoughtful and suggestive article on school
vacations. Bradford Torrey contributes a characteristic nar-
rative, describing bird-hunt outings in December.  An interest-
ing inquiry into the architecture of the West makes Chicago
the fountain-head of artistic and constructive reform in the
West, a fact which the World's Fair bidders will not ignore.
There are several other interesting papers, but the Contribu-
tors' Club is not so popular in character as usual.  The flest
chapters of a new serial story, by the author of "John Ward,
Preacher," are announced for the December number.

  The bound volume of the "Century  Magazine" contains the
story of the Russian exiles in Siberia, which has deservedly
made for Mr. George Kennan such world-wide fame.  The man-
agement of this great periodical has made a valuable contri-
bution to Americal literature, and done humanity a lasting
service by its patronage of this delicate and perilous mission.
Mr. Kennan has been engaged in lecturing, but his ultimate
purpose is not simply to entertain. He is organizing a great
movement for the alleviation of the horrors of Siberia, and it 
is gratifving to be able to say that Philadelphia, under the able     
leadership of Doctor McVickar, has been foremost in encourag-
                          (381)
