1 HE ENGLISH ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE has taken such a firm hold upon English-speaking people throughout the world, that it would perhaps be superfluous to give a detailed description of the Articles and Illustrations that its readers may look for during the coming year. At the same time it has been the custom to give at the commencement of each new volume some indication of the arrangements that have been made, and it is a convenient moment for announcing any new feature that may be of interest to the Subscribers.

The Publishers beg therefore to say that from the October number onwards The English Illustrated Magazine will be printed in a new type which has been decided upon after much deliberation as being an improvement on that hitherto employed, and the letterpress will be printed across the page, instead of in double column. It is believed that the Illustrations, to which the conductors of the Magazine attach the highest importance, will look better when introduced into the solid page, while the letterpress itself will be more legible. At the same time, with a view to further improving the appearance of the Magazine, the thickness of the paper will be increased.

Among the Articles already arranged for, the Editor has to mention a series of three Illustrated Papers graciously contributed by

HER ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PRINCESS CHRISTIAN, the titles of which will be the subject of future announcement.

Social questions of the day will be treated of from time to time, and among the Articles on these topics which will appear during the year will be

CHILDREN IN THEATRES. By Mrs. Jeune.

NAIL AND CHAIN MAKING AT CRADLEY HEATH. By the Rev. Harold Rylett (a principal witness before the House of Lords' Committee on the Sweating System). Illustrated to show the work done by Women and Children.

LONDON MATCH GIRLS. By Clementina Black.

Illustrated to indicate the difference between Factory and Home Work.

A Series of Papers on various religious movements is contemplated, and the first of these will appear in the November number, entitled

CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOLS. By the Hon. Edward

PlERSON THESIGER, C.B.

Illustrated Sporting Articles, written by men who have played a prominent part in the Sporting world, will be produced from time to time, and yachtsmen on both sides of the Atlantic will read with interest

YACHT RACING. By the Right Hon. The Earl Of DunRaven, K.T. Accompanied by illustrations of the yachts Valkyrie, Irex, Yarana, and the famous American seventy-footer, Katrina.

No change will take place in the artistic character of the Magazine, which is generally admitted to have reached a high level. The Editor will continue to avail himself of the services of the highlyskilled engravers on wood who have worked for the Magazine for the past six years, and he has been fortunate enough to receive promises of support from artists of the highest standing. Mr. Walter Crane will contribute a series of Drawings illustrating his recent journey through Greece; and Articles illustrated by Hamilton Macallum, Harry Furniss, Herbert Railton, Hugh ThomSon, Reginald Blomfield, and W. Biscombe Gardner, will appear during the year. Special mention is due to the following Articles :—

TAPESTRY. By Alan S. Cole. Illustrated from Old Examples in the South Kensington Museum, and from New Examples woven by William Morris after designs by E. Burne Jones, A.R.A., and

THE EMBOSSING OF METALS. By W. A. S. Benson.

Illustrated from Old Examples.

In view of the increased circulation of the Magazine in the United States of America, special efforts will be made to interest American readers, and the Editor has secured the co-operation of authors and artists whose works have already gained much popularity on the farther side of the Atlantic.

Poetry will play a prominent part in the early numbers, and New Poems will be published from the pens of

Algernon Charles Swin-
Burne,
William Morris,

Austin Dobson,
Lewis Morris, and
Violet Fane.

Among the features of the Magazine during the next year will be a series of papers on "Girlhood In Different Countries." The Articles already arranged for include

ENGLISH GIRLHOOD. By Mrs. Molesworth.

FRENCH GIRLHOOD. By Mme. Guizot De Witt.

In view of the growing demand for Articles of a purely personal nature, the Editor intends to introduce sketches from the lives of men and women whose position before the public fairly entitles them to rank as Celebrities of the Day.

The series of Articles on " Old ENGLISH HOMES " has proved so popular that it is proposed to extend their scope to Wales, Scotland, and Ireland.

A series of papers on "The Public Schools Of England," written and illustrated from the historical as well as the modern side, . is likewise in contemplation. Already arranged are—

ETON. By H. C. Maxwell-lyte, C.B., and The Hon. Alfred Lyttelton.

HARROW. By Percy M. Thornton and A. J. Webbe.

RUGBY. By His Honour Judge Hughes, Q.C. (Author of

Tom Brown's Schooldays).

Letters will every now and then appear from travellers in different parts of the globe giving personal narratives of their experiences and adventures. The Editor is also making arrangements to give the
