    DR. JUNG is well known as an accomplished writer, both on the scientific and economical aspects of the Australian colonies, in which he spent some years His present brochure is one of much interest, though its immediate subject is beyond our scope. It is a curious fact that though the Germans have no colonies, they are probably, next to the English, the greatest colonisers of any Euro pean nation. Even according to the census returns, the German population of the United States is very great, and as Dr. Jung shows, it is much greater than it seems, for many of the earlier colonists have Anglicised their names, and been absorbed in the general population. To the culture of the States, and indeed to the intellectual side of all the colonies in which they have settled, the Germans have largely contributed. Dr. Jung gives interesting details of German migrations into England, Russia, Australia, South Africa, as well as the States, and from the ethnological standpoint his little work deserves the attention of the scientific student.
