The Story of a Demoiselle. By the Author of "A French Heiress." Illustrated by W. J. Hennessy. (Marcus Ward and Co.)—This, like most of the "Blue Bell Series," is a story of merit, and of merit in several ways. The characters are sketched with force, and the French life is very delicately and vividly painted. A pleasanter tale, on the whole, it would not be easy to find.
