The Scarlet Runner. By C. N. and A. M. Williamson.

(Methuen and Co. 6s.)—The inevitable motor-car written of by Mr. and Mrs. Williamson appears in this book, and is a sort of beneficent providence in which its owner flies about the country redressing wrongs and unravelling mysteries. These stories appeared first serially, and belong to the category of aerials in which each number is "a complete story in itself." They are readable and entertaining, and would be just the thing to while away the hours of a railway journey.
