The Texas Magazine has been moved to Dallas, and is now pub-
lished by William G. Scarff. Judge C. W. Raines' "Life of Santa
Anna," which was commenced in Vol. I., No. 1 of the Magazine,
continues one of its attractions. Ex-Governor O. M. Roberts con-
tributes to the August number an interesting paper on "The Shel-
by War." "Personal Recollections of Stephen F. Austin," written
by Moses Austin Bryan for the information of his son, is one of the
most valuable as well as readable articles of the September number.
A prominent feature of the new Magazine is the emphasis laid
upon woman's work in Texas and elsewhere. The Magazine has a
fine field and a promising future.
The Midsummer Gulf Messenger (Houston, Texas) is a very cred-
itable number. Besides the usual departments, the following are
the leading articles: "Psychical Research," a club paper, by Mrs.
C. Lombardi, of Houston; "Women in the Music Teachers' National
Association" (illustrated), by Caroline Somers; "Our Relations," a
story by Eleanor Kirk, editor of Eleanor Kirk's Idea, and author
of "Libra," and "The Influence of the Zodiac on Human Life";
"Will Allen Dromgoole as a Poet," with frontispiece, by Louise
Preston Looney. A popular feature of this magazine for some
months has been the series of sketches of Women's Clubs in the
South, with leading club papers. With this number it inaugurates
a regular "Department of Women's Clubs," and invites the co-op-
eration and correspondence of club women everywhere, with a view
to exchange of ideas on club work.
