Within a Year. By Frederick Harrison. (S.P.C.K. 3s. 6d.)— The

eventful year which Mr. Harrison has set himself to describe is one of the last of the eighteenth century. Great days those of highwaymen and smugglers, and our tale opens with an over. turned coach and the thundering hoofs of "knights of the road."

Adventures come thick and fast to Bob and jack Edburton and their friend Roy Falking, and we feel that their after life cannot fail to have been dull in comparison. However, that need not concern ; suffice it to say that there is enough within these pages to fill the boy of to-day with delight and envy.
