Mistake : Mistaken (8° S. ii. 404).-I have been very careful in the use of these words ever since Prof. Hodgson, in his ‘Errors in the Use of English' (1885), called attention to their frequent misuse. I do not think any one who has not paid special attention to the matter can be aware how frequent that misuse is. Hodgson gives no instance of it earlier than Cowper; but it is much older than that. It has the authority of Bailey and of Littleton, and doubtless it was common enough long before Littleton's time. There is an instance of it in Milton (“Samson Agonistes,'907),

where Dalilah says:I was a fool, too rash, and quite mistaken In what I thought would have succeeded best.

NOTES ON BOOKS, &c.

Dictionary of National Biography. Edited by Sidney

Lee. W.&###. #. to Lluelyn. (Smith,

Elder & Co.) One more volume of this truly national undertaking has seen the light with the exemplary punctuality the editors have taught us to expect. Little change is, of course, to be traced. Improvement is scarcely to be hoped in a work the excellence of which has won universal recognition, while falling off is not to be expected., Mr. Lee has, indeed, got his team thoroughly in hand, and, to continue the sporting metaphor, allows no change of style or pace, and no sign of fatigue to be exhibited. Of the six or eight articles which Mr. Lee himself contributes—biographies which, with a view to profit by them, his supporters are bound to study-three or four are of importance. John Leland, the King's Antiquary, the only bearer of that distinction, comes first. Of the few known incidents of Leland's ife Mr. Lee gives an account which is a model of succinct statement. The chief value of the biography consists, however, in the full bibliography, embracing a certain amount of description and analysis, which is furnished. Not less valuable is the account of the use that has been made of Leland's material. Of even more importance is the account of Sir Roger L'Estrange, the most prolific of pamphleteers and translaters, “ the dog Towzer" of . Defoe and others, the most arbitrary of licensers of the press, the favoured of James II, and the member for Winchester. His collection of the fables of AEsop and other eminent mythologists is described by Mr. Lee as the most extensive in existence. After quoting concerning L'Estrange opinions so various as that of Clarendon, who describes him as “a man of a good wit and a fancy very luxuriant,” and Hallam, who condemns him as a pattern of bad writing, Mr. Lee holds that he is seen to best advantage in his translations, which, although “not literal,......are eminently readable.” Very striking is the account Mr. Lee gives of William Lilly, the astrologer, whose life appears to have been more adventurous and varied in interest than that of most charlatans. As was to be expected, Mr. Leslie Stephen deals with the life of George, Henry Lewes. Over what must always be regarded as its principal incident he glides lightly, saying that “it does not

appear that moral laxity was combined with cruelty.” The characteristic merits of Lewes are said to have been “clear good sense, independent criticism, and unflagging vivacity.” Douglas Jerrold is said to have called him “too unequivocally” the ugliest man in London. Mr. Stephen also deals with Monk Lewis. The “Monk” is said to have been in part owing to Lewis's interest in ‘The Mysteries of Udolpho.' One of the most important biographies is that of David Livingstone, of whose boyish struggles with difficulty and heroic life and death Col. Vetch gives an unsurpassable account. Of Mr. Lionel Cust's many interesting and adequate notices of painters, that of Sir Peter Lely is perhaps the brightest. Dealing with subjects of which he has unexampled mastery, Mr. C. H. Firth writes the lives of William Lenthall, the Speaker of the House of Commons, and John Lilburne, political agitator. Mr. G. F. Russell Barker, still a mainstay of the book, sends many important biographies, including that of the late Lord Granville and that of Charles Lennox, third Duke of Richmond. Few distinguished naval heroes challenge in this volume the brilliant gifts of Prof. Laughton; nor does the name of Dr. Norman Moore appear to any medical celebrity of the first water. The Rev. Wm. Hunt writes learnedly upon Leofric, Earl of Mercia, upon Leofwine, and upon Roger Leybourne. Mr. J. M. Rigg sends many valuable lives, among which are those of Leone Levi. Count Leslie, and Leopold, Duke of Albany. The life of Lever is entrusted to Dr. Richard Garnett, who supplies a very readable and excellent account. Among his Scottish poets Mr. Thomas Bayne has to do with one man of high interest in John Leyden. He also deals with the Leightons, Robert and William. Canon Wenables writes on Francis Lennard, fourteenth Lord Dacre. Mr. Hamilton is responsible for Mark Lemon, and Canon Scott Holland pays an enthusiastic tribute to Canon Liddon. Mr. Thompson Cooper, Miss Bradley, Mr. Earwaker, Mr. Walter Rye, Mr. Warwick Wroth, and Mr. Charles Welch are also represented in the volume.

WITH the appearance of the Christmas number of L'Art et l'Idée the publication of that periodical is arrested for a twelvemonth. The only excuse for this is that M. Octave Uzanne has wearied of the editorial labours in which he has persisted for fourteen years, and seeks an opportunity to have a holiday and visit the Chicago Exhibition. In 1894 the publication will be resumed. . The present number has a very interesting account of ‘Peintres Lithographes Contemporains,” with a series of original designs which are full of character and talent. “Les Centres Litteraires aux États Unis’ gives portraits of many literary celebrities of New York, as Mark Twain, Lawrence Hutton, W. D. Howells, John Burroughes, &c.

In the Journal of the Ex-Libris Society (A. & C. Black) the editor criticizes Hogarth as a book-plate designer. Mr. Wright holds that Hogarth did design book-plates, and reproduces many illustrations that may pass for such. The article has much value. Mr. Ashworth sends a list of Yorkshire book-plates of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Mr. Albert Hartshorne and Mr. John Leighton are among the contributors. Under its energetic management the society flourishes.

A very remarkable article in the Fortnightly is that by the Rev. H. R. Haweis on ‘Ghosts and their Photos' (sic). The writer, opines that it is possible to secure, by means of highly sensitive plates, proof of the presence of ghosts, invisible to most human organs. He holds, indeed, that this has been done, though chiefly, we fancy, if not wholly, at spiritualistic gatherin Mr. Corbet sends some grave statistics as to “The Increase of Insanity,' which he is disposed to attribute to the excessive China...'The Statesmen of Cumberland' supplies some interesting. gossip concerning these worthies. The Tomb of Alexander the Great,” “On the Old Knightsbridge Road,' and “Qu Thomas Bewick, the last by Mrs. Ritchie, may all be read with pleasure and profit. –In Temple Bor, ‘Letters of a Man of Leisure’ deals with tho remains of Edward Fitzgerald, from whose letters ample extracts are made. A fair paper on Ariosto follows, and is, in turn, succeeded by a life of Samuel Palmer, the landscape painter. Gower street and its Reminiscences' may also be read with pleasure. —‘Uld Church Steeples,' in the Gentleman's, has plea*nt, antiquarian flavour. , Mr. Rodway describes "A Garden in the Tropics, and there is a paper on ‘Mills and Miller", a suggestive subject. In Belgravia, “The Maréchal de Retz" is described as the original Blue'Bear. ~An article on ‘Burne Jones and his Art, in the &nglish, Illustrated, reproduces very many fine designs. ‘Song Birds of India’ gives some very interesting infornation., A portrait and memoir are supplied of The Archbishop of Westminster,’ and there is a good description of “Through the Pyrenees in December.-Mr. Lang, in Longman's, deals wholly with ‘Mary Stuart and the Casket Letters.”—“Humours of Rustic Psalmody' repays attention in the Cornhul.

use of alcohol. “The Benefits of Wivisection,’ with regard to the cure of tetanus, are shown by Mr. A. Coppen Jones. Writing on ‘Michelangelo,” Mr. Herbert P. Horne expresses great admiration for the recent work of Mr. Symonds on that master, and accepts as satisfactory the views of the latest biographer as to the relations of the sonnets. A curious and uncomfortable experience of Mr. D. R. O'Sullivan is described in "Tierra del Fuego.” Mr. Sullivan was shipwrecked in the Straits of Magellan, and had to live, or, rather, starve, in Fuegia for some months. His impressions concerning the country and the people, whom, at secondhand, he describes as “satires upon mankind,” are vividly conveyed. The article has extreme interest.—In a remarkably excellent number of the Nineteenth Century the ‘Aspects of Tennyson' of the editor is the principal feature. Full of interest and value are the indications afforded. Nowhere, indeed, do we seem to get so full and satisfactory an insight into the personality of the poet. Every passage pays perusal, and many call for close study. ith this delightful article one naturally associates the fine • Threnody: Alfred, Lord Tennyson, by Mr. Swinburne, which opens the number closed by Mr. Knowles. Mr. Edward R. Russell writes zealously and ably upon Mr. “Irving's “King Lear,” the conception of which he approves. He is a little severe upon critics, many of whom he credits with “a decided lack of acquaintance with the text” of ‘Lear,' and puzzles us by a reference to “Mr. Furlong's Variorum edition,” a work of the existence of which we have never heard. Is it possible that he means Mr. Howard Furness? ‘Happiness in Hell’ has, as was to be expected, elicited a reply from the othodox Catholic point of view; and those whom Prof. Mivart had perhaps cheered are told that the views expressed are “calculated to do immeasurable mischief to the souls of men.” “Modern Poets and the Meaning of Life' repays serious attention. Lord Grimthorpe expounds at some length his views on ‘Architecture,” and the Countess of Jersey depicts brightly “Three Weeks in Samoa.’–In the New Review Mr. Archer breaks very gallantly a lance with Mr. Swinburne, and a second with Charles Lamb, the subject being John Webster, whom Mr. Archer holds to have been “not, in the special sense of the word, a great dramatist, but a great poet, who wrote haphazard dramatic or melodramatic romances for an eagerly receptive but semi-barbarous public.” Canon Wilberforce, rebuking Dr. Ernest Hart, neglects to verify his quotations, and misquotes Cowper. Prof. Charcot deals with “The Faith Cure,' the Hon. Rodel Noel with ‘English Songs and Ballads, and Mr. Archibald Forbes opens afre-h the question of "Real or Bogus Stuarts. – A deeply interesting and well-illustrated account of “The Peary Relief Expedition' is supplied to Scribner's by its chief; Dr. W. H. Russell sends a graphic sketch of “The Fall of Sebastopol’; and an excellent account of ‘The Poor in Naples' forms, the seventh article on “The Poor in Great Cities.” The illustrations to this are admirable.— The frontispiece to the Century con-ists of a portrait of John Greenleaf Whittier, of whom a sympathetic biography, by Miss Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, is given. It is curious to find him using “thee" as a nominative. Two consecutive papers, by different men, deal with “The Great Wall of China.’ “Crusty Christopher' is an account of John Wilson, with a capital portrait. An account of ‘Millet's Early Life,' by his younger brother, will be studied, as will the ‘To Gipsy Land” of Miss Elizabeth Robins Pennell.—“My Lord the Elephant,’ which appears in Macmillan's, from the pen of Mr. Rudyard Kipling, contains further descriptions of the prowess and humours of “the three soldiers." Under the Great Wall' is another study of the Great Wall of

The work, which has portraits of Mr. Gladstone and Sir George Trevelyan, is thus all but completed.

- MR. A. W. Tukh (The Leadenhall Press, E.C.) writes: ‘Will some one generously lend me for a few days his copy of ‘Margarita Philosophica’ (1503), containing an engraving of a female, holding in one hand a key she is about to, apply to the lock of a door, and in the other a hornbook, which she is offering to a little boy. The kindness will be remembered.”

The parts affected should be bathed with lukewarm water, and when the pores are thereby opened the Ointment should be well rubbed in, at least twice a day. It is always ad virable to take Holloway's Plis in these disorders, as this much assists the Ointmeut's artion.
