Joan Tracy. By Sidney Lloyd. (T. Fisher Unwin.)—This is a

slight though well-done sketch of an easy-going and indolent but good-hearted officer's wooing. It is hardly a novel or a story, but it is readable and light, written in pencil rather than in ink, and with just sufficient continuity of interest and attractiveness of style to entice the reader through its pages. Joan Tracy might well be the forerunner of something more decided and stronger in

treatment, for its characters are true types, and can be instantly appreciated.
