In Press-Gang Days. By Edgar Pickering. (Blaokie and Son.) —The

adventures of Harry Waring occur in the stirring times of the French Revolution. The mutiny at the Nore is one of the first historical incidents worked into the story ; afterwards we go to Teneriffe, then into the hands of robbers, and, lastly, to the Battle of the Nile. The narrative, which is well written, describes the fighting with spirit, and the life aboard a man-of- war with considerable success. Harry Waring has adventures of his own besides these events, and boys will follow his career with interest from first to last.
