Torch.Bearers of the Faith. By Alexander Smellie, M.A. (A. Melrose.

3s. 6d.)—The book has three parts. In the first we hear of ancient and medireval worthies, from Ignatius down to Flavius ; in the second we begin with Savonarola and go on to the heroes of the Covenant and the Huguenots. The third deals chiefly with great missionaries. It is a volume full of interest, and will make an admirable present of the more serious kind.
