CHALICES OF WOOD. At what date were chalices of wood forbidden? Du rand us say* by Pope Urban and the Council of Rheims in^874, but De Caumont writes: " Le pape Leon IV. (IX e siecle) defendit de se servir de calices de bois ou de verre. Cette defense fut renouvelee par le Concile de Tibur, tenu en 895" (' Abecedaire d'Archeologie,' 1886, p. 116). The Rev. John O'Brien, in his 'History of the Mass,' fifteenth edition, n.d., but circa 1879, says, " Sometimes, too, in diffi- cult circumstances chalices of wood were used The canons of King Edgar of Eng- land (tenth century) wholly interdicted chalices of wood " (p. 71). His authority is Bona, 'Rev. Liturg.,' to which I have not access. Mr. Walter Lowrie, whose ' Christian Art and Archaeology,' 1901, is the most recent handbook and one of the best, puts it thus : " Vessels of glass, of the baser metals, or even of wood were, in fact, used by poor churches till late in the Middle Ages" (p. 343). A chalice (more properly a mazer) bearing date 1567, with a wood cup and silver stem, belonging to St. Mary's College, St. Andrews, was exhibited at the Glasgow Exhibition last year ; it is figured in the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, 1882-3, p. 141, but it is not quite in point, and I only mention it in case some reader should kindly refer me to it. I have read the communica- tions in 8 th S. ii.

KIPLING IN AMERICA. (9 th S. ix. 5.)

MR. CRIPPS deserves credit for his industry n compiling the list of American issues of Vtr. Kipling's works ; but if he had travelled urther through the thorny jungle of biblio-

raphy he would have hesitated before apply -

ng the epithet "complete" or even "full" o any essay in that science. The " full list " f original publications, for which MR. CRIPPS s indebted to Mr. W. M. Clemens's 'A

en of Kipling,' has many lacunce, which I vill endeavour to supply ; but before doing so

may observe that instead of relying on Mr. Clemens, MR. CRIPPS would have acted more wisely in consulting the bibliography of Mr.
