A Daughter of the West. By Morioe Gerard. (S. W.

Partridge and Co. 2s. 6d.)—Though this tale opens with a blizzard, the " West" of the title is not the land where such things are common, but Cornwall, where they are exceptional. And excep- tional also are the results of this particular snowstorm. Mr. Gerard recounts them very pleasantly. We associate his pen with more exciting matter, but he evidently is quite at home in gentler scenes.
