The Advocate.

The latest issue of the Advocate has some very good fiction. The two editorials at the beginning are very good; especially the one on printed notes, which expresses fairly accurately the general feeling now existing in regard to their use. "The White Corps Leader" is perhaps the best told and most interesting story in the issue. In this the writer has shown that he possesses a thorough knowledge of the way in which dueling is carried on in Germany and the story, moreover, is told in an easy and fluent style. Rather a clever plot is developed in "The End of Blackwell's Tiger," which deals with the carelessness of a revenue officer. The author of "In the Valley Woodlands," has introduced same very good word painting into his story which although only a page in length gives the reader some idea of the suffering that exists on a battle field. One story which is hardly appropriate is "The Baby Uncle."
