The Other Fellow. By Robert Leighton. (A. Melrose. 6s.)— This

is a tale of the "claimant" kind, a less common variety now than it was in the time of the Tichborne case and for some years afterwards. The subject is not an easy one to handle. The reader ought to be made to doubt whether the pretender is a pretender or the real man. He is not permitted to have any doubts about the pseudo-Wilfred. Otherwise, the story is well told. The scene in the wood is graphically described, and the inquest is a successful effort.
