File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

The February number of this favorite magazine leads off with a fine steel engraving of "The First Ball"- a sense which will be particularly interesting to young lady readers. Then follow the large sheet of Colored Fashions, tasteful and stylish; and a variety of superior woodcuts, illustrating the latest mode for costumes, bonnets, hats, &c. The music for this month is "I Wish that I were Young Again." The literary department has excellent articles in prose and poetry. Louise Chandler Moulton continues her beautiful and touching story, "Did He Forget her?" and Miss Prescott commences "The Cascannon's Aunt." Uno Locke and Miriam Earle contribure good articles; Madge Carrol a heart story- "Out of A June Rose;" Aunt Alice gives an interesting and amusing account of "Our Theoretical Careet," and "Geneva" tells of "Miss Angelica Skittle's Cotton Wedding." The editor's department is also an interesting as usual- while among the Novelties are patterns for fancy work, knitting, embroidery, &c. Published by Deacon & Peterson, $19 Walnut St., Philadelphia. Price $2.50 a year (which also includes a large steel engraving). Four copies, 6. Five copies ( and one gratis). $8, "The Lady's Friend" and "The Saturday Evening Post" ( and one engraving) $4.
