The Navy anti Its Story. By Arnold White. (Macdonald and

Evans. 2s. Od.)—A useful little handbook intended primarily for use as a school reader. Mr. White gives a concise epitome of the history of the Navy, explains the meaning of sea power, and has a good chapter on wireless telegraphy, coal, oil, and naval bases. An interesting feature is a selection of quotations from Nelson's letters.
