means. Besides the uplifting force of religion there is the restraining effect which a true conception exercises. Some may disregard or belittle this aspect; by others it may even be ridiculed. It has, however, one commendable and indisputable advantage-it has stood the test of time. It has weathered all kinds of storms and in all ages. Its advocates, like its adherents, have been numerous and varied, while its results are to be seen and to be testified to everywhere. Just as the ship must have its rudder, and its captain must have his chart if he is to avoid the rocks, so must our boys and girls have trained consciences. and be provided with a character chart to which they may refer for their moral guidance if they, too, are to avoid hidden rocks and terrible moral shipwreck." The chapter on Moral Virility dealing with venereal diseases and their relationships to the general ignorance of sex hygiene is one that should be read and studied by all who value a moral and virile race and who prize all that this involves. The time may come when the ideals of every Union will be high enough to enable men to denounce vice, wrong, and immorality, within their ranks. A union capable of demanding ideal conditions and wages, should also use its influence to bring its members to recognise a high standard of moral rectitude. It is to be feared that too much is being expected from the Churches, and they are too often blamed. What can they do when many of them are burdened with incompetent, unintelligent, and unsympathetic office-bearers? But if different denominations in each locality were to combine to establish a joint institution for their young people, some real social service might be accomplished, and the churches might thereby lay claim to being more than mere spiritual organisations. We cannot over-estimate the value of manual instruction and physical exercises, especially gardening and swimming on which Mr. Berry lays particular stress. Every good teacher knows the value of training the child at an early age in self-rule and self-reliance. In doing this effectively, the teacher A SEARCHLIGHT FOR THINKERS, Containing a Bird's-Eye View of Things that Matter. THE REVIEW OF REVIEWS" THE INDISPENSABLE MAGAZINE FOR BUSY PEOPLE.

"The Death of Turnus." W. Warde Fowler. Blackwell, Oxford. 1919. 6s. net. Pp. 158. The Death of Turnus is the third of Dr. Warde Fowler's series of Virgilian Studies. In it he takes for his theme the closing book of the Aeneid, and especially the dramatic story of the combat between Aeneas and Tumus. The volume consists simply of the text, and just over a hundred pages of commentary. Dr. Warde Fowler, writes mainly for scholars; and a full apprecia- tion of the excellence of the book requires not only an intimate know- ledge of the whole Aeneid, but a considerable acquaintance with the work of preceding commentators. Nevertheless there is a good deal of interest in it, even for the unprofessional student. In many ways, and not least for the light which it throws on Roman religion, the twelfth book is the most interesting of the Aeneid and Dr. Fowler is especially instructive in this side of his subject. There is also an extensive citation of parallel passages from English poets. These, and Dr. Fowler's careful exposition of the philosophy which Virgil intended to express in this book, make his work one which will repay the study of every student of one of the abiding masterpieces of the human mind.
