ARPER'S MAGAZINE, while ever true to its type. — the original type of the popular illus

trated monthly, – is conducted upon no stereotyped plan; its mould is broken every month, so that each Number is the NEW monthly magazine promised on its title-page.

While Harper's MAGAZINE will not fail to satisfy the desire of its readers for the best results of European literary and artistic culture, it will maintain its preeminently American character. As a striking;y appropriate celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Discovery of America, the pub lishers have made special arrangements for a more thorough exposition than has hitherto been made of the Recent Unprecedented Development of our Country, and especially of the Great West.

Particular attention will also be given to Dramatic Episodes in American History, to such characters and incidents as make the Romance of our Past. Such subjects as seem to invite imaginative treatment, in the form of fiction, but with thorough fidelity to actual truth, will be so presented. The Witchcraft Delusion in New England will thus furnish materials for both a play and a short story by MARY E. WILKINS. Cert. in features of French Canadian Life, fifty years ago, will form the basis of a series of original habitant sketches, in true dialect, by Mr. William McLENNAN, the new star in the Canadian literary galaxy: Other characters and events - notably those in the Field of Adventure -- will be set forth in their naked historic verity, and all will be effectively illustrated. Not the least important of these sketches will be two papers by Mr. JULIAN RALPII, depicting the romance of the Old Hudson's Bay Fur Company, illustrated by Mr. FREDERIC REMINGTON.

In view of the near possibility of a General European War, and of ihe certainty that the Danubian provinces will be the field of the next conflict, the publishers have provided for a series of illustrated articles which will be a popular exposition of both the Upper and the Lower Danube. These papers, the result of a special expedition undertaken for this purpose, will be contributed by Mr. POULTNEY BIGELOW and Mr. FRANK D. MILLET. The illustrations will be furnished by Mr. MILLET and Mr. ALFRED PARSONS.

Articles on the German, Austro-Hungarian and Italian Armies, contributed by officers eminent in each service, will appear in the forthcoming volume, with illustrations by T. DE THULSTRUP. These will complete the series, of which there have already appeared in the MAGAZINE articles on the United States, English, Russian, and French armies.

Upon the completion of this series Mr. THEODORE Child will enter upon a graphic exposition of the Paris of To-day, giving two papers on Literary Paris, illustrated by portraits, followed by two papers on Life in Paris, beautifully illustrated by RENOUARD and LEPÈRE.

In an early number will be begun a new novel by Mr. Howells, "A World of Chance," a story characteristically American and abounding in humorous and original situations. Especial prominence will be given to short stories, which will be contributed by THOMAS BAILEY ALDRICH; Con. STANCE FENIMORE WOOLSON; A. CONAN DOYLE, author of "Micah Clarke ; " RICHARD HARDING Davis; MARGARET DELAND), author of “ John Ward, Preacher ;” THOMAS A. JANVIER ; Mary E. WILKINS ; RUTH MCENERY STUART, and other popular writers.

Among the prominent literary features of the year will be new and interesting Personal Reminiscences of Nathaniel Hawthorne, contributed by Horatio BRIDGE, U. S. N., his college classmate and life-long friend; and an interesting Personal Memoir of the Brownings, by ANNE THACKERAY RITCHIE, simnilar in quality and scope to this author's previous articles on Tennyson and Ruskin.



'HE Thirteenth Volume of HARPER'S YOUNG PEOPLE, which begins with the number for

November 3d, promises to surpass the world-wide reputation for general excellence gained by its predecessors. No expense is spared to make this Prince of Weekly Periodicals for Young People attractive, and no effort is neglected that will tend to make it the best of its kind in the world.

The serial fiction of the new volume will begin with “ Diego Pinzon,” by John R. CORYFLL a sixteen-part story of the first voyage of Columbus and the discovery of America. It will be profusely illustrated by W. L. SHEPPARD. In February will begin the third of the famous “ Mates " series, by Kirk MUNROE. We have had “ Dorymates ” and “ "Campmates Now comes “Canoemates, a story of adventure on sea and land, amid Indians and wild heasts, with the Great Reef and the Everglades of Florida for a background. It will be illustrated by W. A. ROGERS, himself a skillful canoeman and camper. The year's trio of long serials will be completed by one upon which one of the most popular American authors of the day is at present engaged. Beside these there will be stories of three or four parts by W. D. HOWELLS, E. H. House, MARY S. McCOBB, ELLA RODMAN CHURCH, ANGELINE TEAL, and others.

Among the short-story writers from whom frequent contributions may be expected are THOMAS NELSON PAGE, Capt. Charles KING, H. H. BOYESEN, MARY E. WILKINS, Lucy C. LILLIE, SOPHIE SWETT, and a host of others equally well known.

A variety of articles on Seasonable Sports will be contributed by experts, while games of all kinds, including those especially devised for amusement on long winter evenings, and Puzzles, will form attractive features.

ARPER'S WEEKLY for the coming year will contain more attractive features, more and finer other periodical of this country.

One set of papers alone will present 500 illustrations by the best artists in Europe. This is a series of articles on The Great Capitals of the World. Twenty-five cities will be described, and each city will be treated by a writer especially selected for his titness for the subject assigned him. Among them will be François COPPÉE, Sir CHARLES DILKE, PIERRE LOTI, MADAME ADAM, and Señor CASTELAR.

The Columbian Exposition, through its growth to its completion, will be illustrated fully by an artist whose studio will be located in Chicago as long as the fair lasts, and its features will be de. scribed by a special correspondent in that city. No fuller or more graphic illustrations and descriptions of this greatest of pictorial interests of the West, and the whole country, will be found in any other publication.

The Army and Navy, for which united services HARPER'S WEEKLY is recognized as what may be called the official pictorial organ, will be illustrated and described as fully as in the past. Public events at home and in Europe, disasters by fire and food, and all incidents of general interest will be adequately treated by pen and pencil as promptly as they become public.

Portraits for which the Weekly is justly celebrated, together with biographical sketches, will be given of men and women of note as they arise into prominence or upon the occasion of their death.

The department of Amateur Sport will continue under the editorship of CASPAR W. WHITNEY.

The short stories, which are a feature of the WEEKLY, are writien by such well-known authors as RUDYARD KIPLING, W. CLARK RUSSELL, A. CONAN DOYLE, GEORGE A. HIBBARD, John KENDRICK BANGS, JEROME K. JEROME, WALTER BESANT, and HENRY JAMES.

The illustrations will be furnished by such distinguished artists as CHARLES S. REINHART, T. DE THULSTRUP, FREDERIC REMINGTON, W. T. SMEDLEY, W. A. Rogers, R. F. ZOGBAUM, R. CATON WOODVILLE, CHARLES GRAHAM, and others.

Among the especial attractions of Harper's WEEKLY are the editorials by George WILLIAM Curtis, whose writings have always urged the purest politics and highest public service.



ARPER'S BAZAR is the leading journal in America for women. With Volume Twenty-five

it reaches its Quarter-Centennial. Harper's BAZAR, in its weekly issues, informs its readers of current fashions in New York, Paris, and Berlin. Its artists in Paris and New York furnish lavish illustrations, and its Pattern-Sheet Supplement is indispensable alike to the professional modiste and to the woman who is her own dressmaker. The noteworthy designs made for HARPER'S BAZAR, from Worth models, by SANDOZ, are a feature which is unrivaled in style and artistic representation. In its department of New York Fashions the most particular attention is given to the description of the reigning modes, and persons remote from the great shopping centres are enabled to order goods and arrange appropriate toilets for every occasion by following the lucid directions of its Fashion Editor.

The Serials for 1892 will be written by WALTER BESANT and WILLIAM BLACK. MARY E. WILKINS, ANNA FULLER, KATE UPSON CLARK, MARION HARLAND, ROSE HAWTHORNE LA THROP, LOUISE STOCKTON, OCTAVE THANET, HARRIET PRESCOTT SPOFFORD, BESSIE CHANDLER PARKER, and many others will furnish a feast of short stories. Mrs. OLIPHANT will contribute characteristic sketches; and “ The Magic Ink,” by WILLIAM BLACK, will run through several numbers.

T. W. HIGGINSON will continue to discuss, in “ Women and Men,” themes of unfailing interest; MARION HARLAND will write a series of Timely Talks, entitled “Day In and Day Out;


Dr. MARY T. BisSELL will write on “The Physical Nurture of Children." CHRISTINE TERHUNE HERRICK will give a series of great value to mothers entitled “The Sick Child.” Mrs. C. A. CREEVEY will write of Ferns and Orchids in “Botany as a Recreation.”

Useful receipts in great variety, with all needed details as to service, will assist the housekeeper in preparing her breakfasts and dinners.

Questions of etiquette and ceremony will be decided by competent authorities in the department of Answers to Correspondents.

The last page has a national reputation as a compedium of wit and humor, enlisting among its illustrators McVICKAR, HYDE, STERNER, FROST, SMEDLEY, and other eminent artists.
