YOUNG MALCOLM. By G. Blake, (Constable.. 7s. 6d. net.)—Mr. Blake

gives a very able account of the struggle which is gone through by Malcolm Tweedie between his love of science and his love of his wife and child. Research work does not enable him to earn enough money to keep them, and he is obliged to take an ordinary general practitioner's practice. The interest of the story is in the development of Malcolm's character, and his scientific attitude is made lifelike and credible.
