THE GUN, AND HOW TO USE IT. By J. B. JOHNSON.

Price 3s.

“The Gun, and how to use it,' is a very desirable brochure,' from the pen of one who appears to have profited by the precept and example of his father. Mr. J. B. Johnson has haa the experience of twenty-five years, and this advantage has by no means been lost upon him. Obviously possessing an ardent love for field sports, the sentiments of an English sportsman, and a mind of more than common penetration, he has been induced to get down for the guidance of others instructions which are not mere speculations, but, on the contrary, convictions, the result of personal observation and a zealous persistence in a favorite pursuit. There is great originality in his remarks; and, in the absence of far-fetched notions and erudite composition, we have common sense suggestions and plain-set comments, The young shooter will gather some instruction from the book, and the old hand will not fail to find in it something to repay him for a perusal."-ERA.

THE DOG, AND HOW TO BREAK HIM; with his Diseases

and Method of Cure. By J. B. JOHNSON. Price 3s. " Its greatest recommendation, to our thinking, is its humanity. The author not only advises kind treatmentor, rather, the avoiding of cruelty-but he shows how severity can be best dispensed with. Without any mawkish sensibility, he gives practical information like one who understands his business, knowing that the whip cannot be wholly dispensed with, but favouring a system which keeps the lash from the dog as much as possible. His plan is excellent. He does not pretend to originality, but there are many novelties introduced by him Indeed, these works are replete with wrinkles' worth acquiring, and in a concise shape you get all that is requisite for the purpose named. You learn briefly what should and should not be in reference to the different subjects in hand; and we perceive, too, that an abstract of the Game-laws is appended, sufficient for the guidance of those who would shoot and yet avoid penalties."-ERA.

“ It is seldom, indeed, the young sportsman has the opportunity of learning so much with so little trouble to himself, as he may from. The Gun, and how to use it,' or from "The Dog. and how to break him.' Moreover, he can receive what he reads with every confidence in his author: for Mr. Johnson is no skilful collector of other men's matter, but a well-tried sportsman, who only recommends what he himself has tested and approved. There is not a breed of shooting.dogs, or a part and parcel of the gun, but has due notice and elucidation as to how it should be treated. They are very neatly printed and got up, and equally to be recommended for cheapness and portability."-SPORTING MAGAZINE (September).

THE GAMEKEEPER'S DIRECTORY; for the Preservation of

Game, the Destruction of Vermin, and the Prevention of Poaching. Second Edition. Price 5s.

" It aboAnds with practical observation. In plain and homely diction, the writer, evidently a man of long experience, and, what is still more indispensable to the acquisition of knowledge of all kinds, unflagging observation, makes the reader as wise as himself, teaching bim precisely what he wants to know, and after a most agreeable fashion. There is superior intelligence and the result of patient inquiry conspicuous in every page. You are told something about the nature and habits of every animal mentioned, just enough to excite further inquiry in some and freshen the memories of others; and these particulars, touching more upon the physiology than the natural history of certain of the brute creation, are as preludes to available matter-instructions for preserving game, and for destroying vermin that prey upon them. There is a liberal tone, too, breathing throughout the book, showing that the author thought for himself, avoiding those vulgar prejudices and cherished traditions which perpetuate error, injustice, and absurdity. His contrivance for poisoning and trapping rats is remarkable, as, indeed, is most of his advice; and we think those for whom the book is written will, upon possessing it, think their money has been laid out to advantage." -ERA.

“ The Gamekeeper's Directory' is a new edition of a work already well known, which must always rank high as an authority as long as we have game to preserve or vermin to destroy." --SPORTING MAGAZINE (September).
