Tho Germans havo been tho pioneers in sci
entific foru.try, as in so many other lines of
progress. With n total forest urea of only
31,310,000 ncros, of which 11,231,000 belong
to tho state, the German empire now has no
loss than nlno schools of forestry, nnd during
tlio threo years ending with 18S3 it published
177 books on tho vnrious brnnchos of tho Bub
joct. There nro also ton periodicals devoted
to forestry, and a general association of for
estors with annual meetings, and ten local so
cletloH. Hritish literature in 1SS9 was uot so pro
ductive as during tho previous twolvo
months. Theology, educational works, trav
els, history, poetry, science, art and political
economy all showed a slight docreaso, but, on
tho other hand, tho lighter stylo of literature

for young peoplo wero published, whllo
there wero no fewer than 1,W0 now novels
and stories, hesldus 301 reprints. In "Ilclles

now books, owing to the largo number of re

"Happily a movement ha begun In the
United States, which it Is barely posxlblo may
