THE ATLANTIC.-The May number has interesting chapters of all the serial stories. Dr. Holmes turns over some new leaves in his delightful "New Portfolio," and the articles on "Madame Mohl and her Salon" are completed. The short papers are John S. Dwight's article on "Bach: 1685-1885;" "The Misused H of England," "Children in Early Christianity," and "A Bird-Lover's April." There are several back reviews and some excellent poetry. The usual Contributors' Club and Books of the Month close the number.
