Price 3s, post free (Second Edition, with Portrait), Life and Times of William Thomson,

LATE FARMER, OVER-ROXBURGH. By his Son, THE REV. J. THOMSON, HAWICK. “ If to be full of human interest is high merit in any book, then has Mr. Thomson, in giving to the world 'the life and times” of his father, performed a meritorious task. We have read the rolume throughout without stopping--a pretty sure sign that it lias some 'glamour' in it. We do not say that it might not have been made better, by a little curtailment here and there, but just as it is, we are quite delighted to have it."-Sunderland Times.

“ These collected addresses of Lord Polwarth, issued during fifteen years past as "Watchwords for the New Year,' are now published in one volume, which we are glad to see has reached a second edition. They are full of gospel truth, clearly and simply expressed. The type is good, making the volume very suitable for the aged, to whom in its present form it will

be of special service and value. The addresses can also be had separately, and should be largely used in tract distribution, being admirably adapted for general circulation by Christian workers.”—The Christian, April 26, 1883.

“ It would be impossible to obtain, in collected form, a larger or more useful budget of information respecting the Border country than is contained in this capital almanac. As a work of local reference it will hold its own with any similar production.”—Bookseller.

OF STOCK MANAGEMENT.
BY THE LATE PRINCIPAL WILLIAM ROBERTSON,

ROYAL VETERINARY COLLEGE, LONDON. “ Its contents are varied, but exceedingly interesting to the class for whom they are written. Under the head of Location of Animals, we find the importance of attending to the reciprocal relations which subsist between animals and the situation in which they are placed—the Influence of Soils Geological Formation-Manurial Richness-Shelter, Stabling, &c. The next section refers to the Feeding of Animals, and is followed by one on the Breeding of Animals, Rearing of Young Stock, Epizootic and Enzootic Diseases, concluding with a chapter on the Management of the Disease. Altogether it is a most interesting publication for agriculturists, and although the bulk of the book is not very large for the money, still it will well repay any one having an interest in the subject to purchase it."-Kirkcudbright Advertiser.

“ Is quite a budget of information, plainly and intelligibly given."Southern Reporter.

Songs of the Border-land and other Verses.

BY THE LATE JAMES LOGIE HERCUS.
“ Essentially, however, Mr Hercus is the simple singer of a simple song.

But that is a great merit, for it is one of the felicities of art to be able to sing of simple subjects in a simple manner. . . . His unpretentious gushes of rhyme leave a pleasing murmur in the ear, as if one bad been listening to the hidden brooks and burnies that contribute their trebles of music to the Tweed.”—Glasgow Herald, May 3, 1888.
