By Manly Miles, Cambridge, 1882. Professor Miles is just the one to look after improved corn. Corn has been with him the hobby of a life time, and the magnificent collection of varieties he had at the Centennial Exposition was one of the features of the agricultural exhibits of that great affair. The contents of the work are scarcely quotable. It is a work for deep study and reflection, and will certainly be appreciated by all who take an interest in corn culture.

If a literary criticism may be allowed, we should have to find fault with the idea which makes every sentence a paragraph. Imperfect paragraphing is a common literary fault; but surely the style which paragraphs every sentence is worse than all. It is very difficult to comprehend the drift of the author when the matter is so arranged - at least, so it strikes us.
