  DESSALINES, "a dramatic tale," is written in true dramatic
style, by William Edgar Easton, and dedicated to his daugh-
ter, Athenais Marie Easton. Two addresses are appended to
the work; one by the Hon. Norris Wright Cuney, "a tribute
to Haitien Heroism," the other is the address of the Hon.
Frederick Douglass, delivered at the opening of the Haitien
Building at the World's Columbian Exposition.  This appen-
dix does not detract anything from the subject upon which
the book is written, as the addresses both deal with some
phase of Haitien history.
  The drama is well planned and developed in a most inter-
esting way, and while, on account of peculiar conditions, it
may not take its place among the great plays of American
authors, the author himself will be remembered by posterity
as a writer, of ability. Price $1.50. Knapp & Hopkins, Gen-
eral Agents, Galveston, Texas.

for April, May and June are, as usual, bright and interesting
numbers. In the June number, Dr. R. E. I. Gould writes thus
upon the social condition of labor:
  The social condition of labor is fast becoming a topic of
absorbing interest. Individual savant effort has been, since the
time of LePlay, more or less directed to investigation in this
sphere; but in recent years governments have themselves
become interested in the question, and, commencing in Massa-
chusetts in 1869, have established organs of social inquiry
classified generally under the title of Bureaus of Labor
Statistics, which concern themselves particularly with this
field of study. Twenty-nine such institutions exist to-day in
the United States; and abroad, in England, Belgium, France,
and Germany, they have also been recently founded. Such
concentration of effort upon a particular field of inquiry is at
once a distinctive mark of widespread interest, a realization of
the necessity of accurate and special knowledge, and a good
                             (206)
