The April Atlantic opens with the second and last part of "Drifting Down Lost Creek," one of the best short stories recently published, by Charles Egbert Craddock. Mr. Crawford's serial, "A Roman Singer," and Dr. Mitchell's "In War Time" both have two new chapters; and Henry James contributed another of his French travel papers, this time describing Avignon and Orange. Prof. Shaler discusses "The Red Sunsets" and their probable cause. Oliver T. Morton, son of the late Senator Morton of Indiana, writes about "Presidential Nominations;" Maria Louise Henry contributes a sketch of Madame de Longueville. Bradford Torrey has an interesting bird article, entitled "Phillida and Coridon;" while the Contributors' Club has some delightful extracts from a "Rhymed Letter" by James Russell Lowell, not included in his volumes.
