    Abstract

    GYPSY FOLKLORE.—The new series of the Gypsy Lore Society's Journal is being actively conducted by its energetic secretary, Mr. T. W. Thompson. The last issue (Third Series, vol. i., part 3) contains an excellent article by him on the Gypsy Grays as tale-tellers, which describes the methods by which the incidents of their stories are manipulated. This has a much wider interest than is implied by its title, and students of folk tales will find that it throws much needed light on the construction of these narratives.
