HEALTH RESORTS. Being a Complete Guide to Southern California. By WALTER LIND-
LEY, M.D., and J. P. WIDNEY, A.M., M.D. With maps and numerous illustrations. 12mo,
cloth, $2.00.

Southern California is the new golden Hesperides toward which invalids seeking for health, cultivators looking
for lands to plant, travellers searching for fresh territory to explore, are now turning in great numbers. The guide
to this country now offered was planned with the requirements of these classes in view, the information given being
exhaustive in each field. It has been prepared by two well-known physicians living in Los Angeles, who, being
thoroughly familiar with the ground, their statements may be fully trusted.


The Memoirs of an Arabian Princess.

By EMILY REUTE, née Princess of Oman and Zanzibar. Translated from the German.

cloth, 75 cents.

“The author of this amusing autobiography is a real princess, half-sister to the Sultan of Zanzibar, who some
years ago married a German merchant and settled at Hamburg. The palace-revolutions and domestic wars in which
she played a distinguished part seem to have left a somewhat bitter feeling in her mind; but the public will be in-
terested in all that she says about her early life in what seems to have been a happy but somewhat crowded home.
She shared it with about a hundred brothers and sisters and seventy-four stepmothers.”London Academy.


The Nun's Curse.
A NOVEL. By Mrs. J. H. RIDDELL, author of “Miss Gascoigne," etc. 12mo, paper, 50 cents.

A powerful story that is not merely interesting, but exciting, delineating fresh and remarkable phases of life in
the north of Ireland, and with some admirably-drawn characters.

1, 3, and 5 Bond Street, New York.
