York: G. P. Putiam's Sons. Lon-
don: Bliss, Sands & Co. 1898. The
Science Series.) This book is a seri
ous attempt toexpress the fundamen
tal assumptions of the most general
nature upon which science rests at
the present time. Its value is in
bringing clearly to consciousness,
upon a dualistic basis, the fact that
the universe can be explained only
as "the action of an all-pervading
intelligence," that is, that it is ra-
tional. The weakness of the book
lies in the fact that this intelligence
is regarded as "unimaginable, that
is, as separate from and altogether
'unknowahie to the humanl mind. The
author has not advaiced beyond tte
position of contemporary English
thought as represented by Spencer
A Nen Geological Work.
"Rivers of North America" is the
title of a work soon to appear from
the press of G. P. Putnam's Sons.
It is the fourth volume in the geo-
logical series by Prof. Israel C.
Russell of the University. The titles
of the first three volumes-are: "Lakes
of North America," "Glaciers of
North America," and "Volcanoes of
North America." In character aid
scipe this last voluie is very similar
to those that have already appeared.
