The Harringteris at Home. By Ismay Thorn. (Wells Gardner and

Co.)—We seem to have come across the Harringtons before.


Geoff" and "Jim" sound familiar; but the rest of the characters are fresh and quite in Ismay Thorn's best manner. The wilful Tot and the new governess are both interesting, the dialogue and the incidents are natural, for in the home schoolroom our author treads on firmer ground than on the boards of a boys' school. There is a very good moral for young children in the account of 'ot'e naughtiness, and to them we recommend The Harringtons at Home.
