READABLE NOVELS.—.Tenny. By Roy Horniman. (Hurst and Blackett. 6s.)—A story

of a gutter child of astounding refinement, who makes a success on the stage without train- ing, and then is practically adopted by an elderly duke of not irreproachable character. The opening of the book is the best part.—The Blue Wolf. By W. Lacey Amy. (Hodder and Stoughton. 6s.)—The scene of this novel is laid on a ranch in Western Canada. It is not very well written, but the description of the very cute American fanatics called the " Dreamers" is decidedly curious.
