We have here the history of a Quaker family, many of whose members passed into the Protestant Episcopal Church, under the guidance of Wm. White. The work is something more than a mere pedigree, for it tells us something of all the families and young and old may well be proud of the good record of those who
for two centuries and more have helped to make it.
THE LITCHFIELD BOOK OF DAYS. Collation of the Historical, Biographical and Literary Reminiscenses of the town of Litchfield, Connecticut. Edited by Rev. George C. Boswell. In his "House-Boat," Kendrick Bangs makes Dr. Johnson find fault with his Boswell by saying that instead of doting on him, he anecdoted on him. Litchfield has been "Boswellized," and that right well, and while the editor has both doted and "anecdoted," the town can have nought but praise for his work. Of course he was favored in his subject; a town without a peer in history and biography of more than local interest; the town of the first law school in America from which went out over one hundred and twenty men who became famous as high officials in our land; the town of the Wolcotts and Beechers and Ethan Allen and Tapping Reeve and Judge Gould; a town
where every old house has a history full of interest. But Rev. Mr. Boswell has made a collection of valuable historical and literary matter with a painstaking care for accuracy of detail that is a credit to all concerned. The interest with which one reads on and on in the book attests its merit. It contains more than forty illustrations of present day Litchfield. Published by Alex. B. Shumway, Litchfield, Conn. Sent post paid for $1.60 Smith & McDonough, Hartford.

The first number of the long expected quarterly magazine, THE MAYFLOWER DESCENDANT, has appeared. If subsequent numbers can be made as interesting as this one its success should be assured.

Covers Greater Area than Any Other Sprinkler Made

four times greater
than any other Sprinkler made.
Sent C. O. D. by express
privilege of five days' trial.
HE globe, or body, of the sprinkler is made in two parts, and by means of the swiftly revolving arms, and intermediate gears, the upper half is made to revolve slowly, carrying the hose nozzle, from which a full stream of water is thrown far out beyond the sprinkle of the arms, thereby covering a much larger space than any other stationary sprinkler. With an ordinary pressure of water, 20 pounds or upwards, it will thoroughly sprinkle an area 8o feet in diameter. The nozzle and the tips on end of arms are adjustable and can be set so as to sprinkle any desired space, or the nozzle can be set perpendicular to send the water upwa ds in a straight stream like a fountain.
A perforated disc, or rosette, is packed in each box and can be attached in place of the nozzle tip, discharging instead of a solid straight stream a very fine mist at the centre of the sprinkle of the revolving arms.
With the exception of the legs all parts are of solid brass, heavily nickeled, making it the most durable, attractive and efficient sprinkler ever placed on the market.
