A healthful and very readable story for young people. It
deals with one of the most interesting periods of American
History, and is based on facts. Pure in tone, it is admirably
suited for school libraries because of its historic teaching.
Our literature for the young is none too well supplied with
books of interest on their country's history, so we gladly
welcome the "Three Colonial Boys," the first of a promised
War of the Revolution Series, dealing with events prior to
and during the war. We are impressed by the wholesome
lessons of patriotism inculcated by the three youths.* Our
boys need it, and the work is well begun. Congregationalist.

"Two Young Patriots" takes up as its pivotal point, Bur-
goyne's invasion, and the narrative deals particularly with the
historic events connected with the campaign. It not only
gives to the reader a story, but also a most correct outline of
the Invasion itself. The book is full of fervor, fire and fun,
and its author here reasserts his claim to consideration as a
high-class writer for first-rate books for boys. S. S Times.
A story of Burgoyne's invasion. Indians and Indian war-
fare naturally have a very large place in these picturesque
pages, and the reader will travel on through the book with
breathless interest until he reaches the culmination of the
story in the surrender of Saratoga. Book Buyer.
A very shrewdly-planned campaign was Burgoyne's
invasion, but it was equally shrewdly met by the colonists.
Such is the basis of " Two Young Patriots," and the story
loses nothing in the author's telling, for he has spared no
pains with his historic accuracy, and it will doubtless convey
to its readers a clearer idea of this pivotal point in the Revo-
lution than they have ever enjoyed before. The Interior.
It is exciting and thrilling, maintaining a strong interest
throughout its pages. The make-up of the book is
remarkably good, and the illustrations form a splendid
addition. Journal of Education.

Drysdale. His style is vivacious and racy, and the events
hurry along like the current of a stream above a cascade.
The story in itself is intensely interesting, but, aside from its
interest, it gives an insight into the life of a great daily paper
of the city that it would be hard to find elsewhere. Thus
the book is instructive as well as captivating. Lutheran
