spirit of adventure, and perhaps was partly inspired by the pupils'
interest in it as it proceeded. The second edition here mentioned is
well illustrated, and is a fresh translation, more accurate perhaps, but
scarcely so inviting to the childish English reader as the first more
freely abridged version. The adventures are unfortunately more charm-
ing than possible in either naval or scientific eyes.

118. Masterman Ready. By Captain Marry at. (Warne) 5s.
The outcome of a sailor's disgust at the Swiss family's raft of tubs

and other impossibilities. Written with the ability of a distinguished
novelist, and exercising over the children the fascination of the two
preceding tales.

119. The Island Queen. ByR. M. Ballantyne. (Nisbet) p. 6d.
Here a young lady is by general consent elected to be queen of a

shipwrecked crew. Mr. Ballantyne's tales of adventure are perfectly
safe from the moral point of view, and always have a religious tone, but
when any matter brings forward points of difference, the tone is not

that of the Church. Happily, however, there is seldom room for any
such difficulty.

120. The Young - Crusoe. By Mrs. Hofland. (Nelson) is. 6d.

The best of this once popular author's stories republished.

121. The Fate of the 'Black Swan.' By F. Frankfort Moore.

(S.P.C.K.) 3 s. 6d.

Two brothers, one in the navy, the other in the merchant service,
see a good deal of the coast of Africa. The introduction of an ' un-
attached ' and helpless missionary is the only weak point.

124. Ned in the Blockhouse. (Cassell) 2s. 6d.

125. Ned in the Woods. (Cassell) 2s. 6d.

126. Ned on the River. (Cassell) 2s. 6d.

127. The Camp Fire and the Wigwam. (Cassell) 2s. 6d.

128. The Lost Trail. (Cassell) 2s. 6d.

129. Footsteps in the Forest. (Cassell) 2s. 6d.
American, Fertimore Cooper-like adventures, but without the love

or the somewhat stilted language. There is an admirable Red Indian
hero, a Christian, who appears in all difficulties. Boys revel in these
books, which seem to have an unusual attraction for them. The three
first form the 'Boy Pioneer Series,' the three last the 'Log Cabin
Series.' Many of the real pioneers of Kentucky are introduced.

130. Lost in the Backwoods. By Mrs. Traill. (Nelson)

Adventures in a Canadian forest of fifty or sixty years ago. Well
worthy of its republication.

132. Treasure Island. By R. L. Stevenson. (Cassell) 5s.

the reader into rough company, among a good many horrors.

133. Tom Brown's School Days. By T. Hughes. (Macmillan)
2s. or 6d.

The life is so fresh and wholesome in spirit that, though the sphere
is so different from that of the elementary school-boy, his tone may be
raised by it.

134. Ascott Hope's Tales.

These are too numerous and have too many different publishers for
enumeration, but all are lively and wholesome tales of boyhood mostly
in school life, and are good to lend and give.

135. The Crofton Boys. By Harriet Martineau. (Rout-
ledge) is. and is. 6d. (With 40 illustrations, 2s. )

A very attractive story of a brave little boy at school, who loses his
foot by an accident, and resolutely conceals the name of the perpetrator.

136. Follow the Leader. By Talbot B. Reed. (Cassell) 5s.
Another public-school story, sound and spirited, and likely to

interest. People sometimes learn best from what does not profess to
be about their own life.

137. In Quest of Gold on the Whanga Falls. By C. H.

Johnstone. (Cassell) 3s. 6d.

Exciting Australian adventures. It is to be hoped they will not
inspire the gold fever, for which, however, 'True Gold' (see No. 602)
may be an antidote.

138. The Boy with an Idea. By Mrs. Eiloart. (Warne)
is. 6d.

An inventive genius, always getting into exquisitely droll predica-
ments, some of which are quite fit to do duty at a penny reading.

139. Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. By Jules
Verne. Two parts. (Low) Cloth $s. 6d.; boards, 2 parts, is. each.

140. The Mysterious Island. Three parts. (Low) Cloth 2s.,

143. Dr. Ox's Experiment. (Low) Cloth 2s., boards is.

144. The Steam House. (Low) Two parts. Cloth 2s., boards
is. each.

Jules Verne is a modern Baron Munchausen with an air of science
and a Frenchman's ironical gravity. To some he is perfectly enchanting,
but there are soberer minds who are bewildered as to whether the
wonders they read of are meant for truth or fiction, and dislike him
accordingly. We have only mentioned a small selection of his trans-
lated works, but all are perfectly safe, for he is a religious, sound-hearted
man. ' Dr. Ox's Experiment ' is short enough for a penny reading
among intelligent people.

145. Ben Sylvester's Word. (See No. 55.)

146. Frank's Debt. By C. M. Yonge. (Walter Smith) 3^.
The dull rude lad raised by better surroundings.

151. For Fortune and Glory, a Story of the Soudan War.

By Lewis Hough. (Cassell) $s.

A somewhat wild story, involving adventures with an old semi-mad-
man who has turned Mahometan, but with a very graphic description
of life in the English army.

152. On Board the ' Esmeralda.' By J. Hutcheson. (Cassell)
3s. 6d.

No harm in it, though the Squeers establishment at the beginning
might have been spared.

153. Jackanapes. By J. H. Ewing. (S.P.C.K.) is.

This beautiful story wins the attention of boys, but those who read
it to them find it advisable to skip the unnecessary incident of the
elopement.

154. Mutiny on the ' Albatross.' By F. Frankfort Moore.
(S.P.C.K.) 3 s. 6d.

Exactly fulfilling the boy's description, 'A pretty book with plenty
of killing.'

155. Nimrod Nunn. (S.P.C.K.) 2s.

A village waif becomes a brave soldier, and is killed in Egypt.

156. Pirates' Creek. By S. W. Sadler. (S.P.C.K.) 3s.

157. Tales by W. H. Kingston.

There are so many of these, and brought out by so many publishers
(S.P.C.K.), (Griffith, Farran, & Co.), (Warne), (Shaw), (Nisbet), (Rout-
ledge), that it is hardly possible to collect or enumerate them, and one
description answers for all. They are full of adventure, well studied
from travels and geography, perfectly safe and innocent, with more
incident than character, and very useful for those who love adventurous
tales.

158. Tales by R. M. Ballantyne.

These also are too numerous for individual mention. They teach much
as to manners, geography, &c, and there is a conscientious, religious
tone about both authors, but Mr. Ballantyne's are apt to be rather con-
fused where any Church matter comes in question.

159. A Hero : Philip's Book. By the Author of 'John Halifax.'
(Routledge) is.

A very striking picture of moral versus physical Courage.

geographical information, and wholesomely sound and amusing.



DRAWING-ROOM STORIES.

The stories under this head are chosen for their unusual
excellence, but they deal in general with a way of life, with
pursuits, allusions, and temptations, so much out of the line
of the ordinary clients of the parish library that we do not
recommend them for that purpose, although they would do
no harm but decidedly good, so far as they were understood,
and, where readers of a superior degree are included, would
be excellent.

176. The Langdales of Langdale End. By Eleanor Lloyd.

(Marcus Ward) 35. 6d.

A lively, clever set of children, slightly over-independent of their
parents. They get into a scrape by secretiveness about their pleasures,
and their discussions of their clergyman might not be edifying to some
readers.

has to be silently sacrificed.

This is made to a servant girl not to reveal an accident to a young

child of which both alike are guilty. It results in the poor child's
idiocy, and thus would be a wholesome warning to nurses, but Decima's
other troubles are rather out of their beat.

200. Elly's Choice. (S.P.C.K.) is. 6d.

201. Boys and Girls. (S.P.C.K.) is.

The best thing in these is a remarkable fable or allegory, quite fit to
be read separately, where each person is represented as chained for
life to some animal symbolising character, and the question in each
case is, Will the animal subdue the human being to the ruin of both, or
will the human creature make the animal his obedient servant to the
salvation of both ?

The damsel takes to sensational religion and despises her mother,

The contrast between physical daring and moral courage well brought

out.

204. The Autocrat of the Nursery. By L. T. Meade.
(Hodder) $s.

This is delightfully illustrated and is a charming story, but it has the
fault — a serious one if reverence is desired — of giving holy Names
misspelt for baby utterance. A touch of the pen will alter this.

imbibe them.

Interesting and spirited.

228. Pat. By Stella Austin. (Masters) 3^. 6d.

By far the best of Stella Austin's stories, which are popular, but
have for the most part the fault of admiring the children's simplicity
too palpably, and might foster affectation or self-consciousness.

A story of much excellence and reality.

243. Stories and Lessons on the Catechism. (Walter Smith)

3 vols. 135.

A companion to the lessons on the Collects, with a class of girls
instead of boys. The using of it for many years has tested its excel-
lence.

Detached stories, with questions at the end of each on the portion to

(Wells Gardner, Darton & Co.) is. 6d.

253. Teaching's for the Little Ones on the Catechism. By

C. M. Yonge. (Walter Smith) 2s. 6d.

These last are more of Sunday-school books than intended to be
lent, but as most of the instruction to very little ones must be con-
veyed either by reading or speaking to them, it has been thought that
the recommendation of these might be an assistance to teachers pre-
paring lessons.




ON CONFIRMATION.

254. Harry and Archie. By the Rev. E. Monro. (Masters) Is.

The first is the most effective of all such books. Its excellence has
been proved. To our own knowledge it has brought a servant to Con-
firmation and a lad to Holy Communion.

A great favourite.

and Gospels.

266. Stories and Lessons on the Collects. (Walter Smith)
\2S. 6d.

The lessons are given by a lady to a class of boys, each of whom has
his own history and character, and, besides pursuing this, stories are
told and read to them. It is a very useful book for teaching from,
making the class in hand answer the questions and look out the refer-
ences (of which there is a very large choice) ; and the stories, which are
not quite equal to the teachings, can be read or not according to time
and expediency.

267. Stories on the Christian Year. By C. A. Jones. (Master?)
8 vols. 2s. each.

Stories illustrating the Collects, with questions at the end. Rather
unequal.

all the teachings of the author of the ' Christian Year.'

A valuable explanation of the Athanasian Creed ; exactly the thing
to correct popular mistakes.
