THE TRUE DOCTRINE OF ORBITS. An original treatise on Central Forces. By H. G. Rush, of New Danville, Penn. 8vo. pp. 133.

"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself with now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."

The author of this book says that the creation of this book is owing to a chain of those fortuitous circumstances to which science and art are indebted for so many of their treasures. In the face of prejudices the author has vividly pictured to himself the ridicule which will be his portion if he fails to establish his propositions. He is confident, however, that the correctness of his conclusions will be admitted. He says that an original investigation of the "Problem of Lights," conducted some seventeen years previous to the publication of his "True Doctrine," resulted in a series of conclusions which has suggested this work. His demonstrations are illustrated with diagrams and he invites a close observation of the mathematical results.

We have not had time as yet to follow through the demonstrations of the author's propositions and cannot at this writing give our judgment of his conclusions, but shall exame his theory farther as it deserves. All new doctrines shold be examined and all newly discovered truths regonized. The author will send the book for 50 cents, and will no doubt be glad to receive any criticisms. The book should be examined thoroughly by professional men.

THE LADY OF DARDALE, and other Poems. By Horace Eaton Walker. Manchester, N. H., Browne & Rowe, publishers. 8vo. pp. 608. cloth. Portrait of author. Dedicated to America with a poem of fourteen stanzas. The author, born in Claremont, N. H., Aug. 9, 1852, was Burns-like destined to a poetic existence in the then coming years. The published volume of "Lady's Cabinet of Polite Literature," 1808, was the star-book of his inspiration, and he commenced his poetic strains early in life. But only in 1886 did he collect the poem, and they are here brought out in a handsome octavo volume for his admirers and for preservation. The book contains 268 poems, illustrated with 23 cuts and portraits. The leading poem covers 123 pages and holds the reader to the end. The entire volume has the true poetic inspiration and will take its place in future among the farfamed volumes of gems of this and other countries.
