Through Flood and Flame. By Henry Charles Moore. (R.T.S. 2s.)—Mr.

Moore's subject is the "Adventures and Perils of Pro- testant Heroes." He finds his themes in many of the countries of Europe. He takes us to France, where he tells stories of the Camisards ; to Bohemia (Gilek was tortured to extract a confession as late as 1735) ; to Spain and Portugal, where we see the Inqui- sition at its best, or worst ; to Italy and Switzerland, to the Netherlands, and finally returns to our own country. Some of the stories are of events and men but little known; others are familiar ; but they are worth retelling.
