His Little Daughter. By Amy Le Feuvre. (R.T.S. 18. 6d.)—
This is a well-told little tale, of the kind which we are accus- tomed to associate with the author's name, of a change of character wrought in a turbulent child, combined with a family history of disagreement and reconciliation. It shows power in a simple and unpretending way.—The Deserted Palace, by Mrs. Edwin Hohler (Blackie and Son, is.), is a little story of a somewhat romantic kind. We cannot recognise the situation as one coming within ordinary experience; the "long arm of coincidence" is stretched too far. Yet doubtless it will please. It is hardly set off by the illustrations.—Twilight Stories. By Catharine Shaw. (J. F. Shaw and Co. ls.)—These are very brief and simple, and might be very useful to a mother or teacher feeling her own powers of invention falling short.—The Boys of All Saints. By Mabel Mackintosh. (Same publishers. is.) —This is a good story, with nothing far-fetched and extravagant about it; true, as it seems to us, to life, while its aim ia to show what the purpose in life should be.
