(Chatto and Windus. 6s.)—A romance in which Claverhouse is the prominent figure.—Cricket Heron. By Irving Bacheller. (T. Fisher Unwin. 6s.)—A. very lifelike picture of how a New England lad made his way to fortune.— Kitty Aubrey. By Katharine Tynan. (J. Nisbet and Co. 6s.)— This is a quite charming story of goodness and beauty coming by their deserts. But is not Rosamund too odious ?—Deep Sea. Warriors. By Basil Lubbock. (Methuen and Co. 6s.)—A. powerful tale of "Life before the Mast," excellent as a preventive against the going-to-sea craze.—Tess of Ithaca. By Grace Miller White. (Mills and Boon. 6s.)—" Tess" is a striking character, but her roughness of speech and manner is surely exaggerated when she has done so much to educate herself. The misconduct of Teola, again, seems improbable.—Old Friends and New. By Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey. (Hodder and Stoughton_ 6s.)—A collection of attractive stories.
