  GIRLS OF THE TRUE BLUE: A School Story. By L. T. MEADE. With ten
  Illustrations by Percy Tarrant.                                  6/

      Girls of all ages are sure to be fascinated by the pathetic and
      highly interesting narrative of Nan Esterleigh, the orphan girl
      who makes her home with a friend of her mother's, where she has
      abundance of nice pets, good companions, and an atmosphere of
      wholesome comfort, and where she is quite happy until an act of
      deceit puts her in the power of an older and designing girl, and
      renders her at times very miserable. This wrong-doing is the
      shadow over her life, as she finds when Captain Richmond starts
      the Royal True Blue society, with its prize to be given for the
      best girl who had cultivated every side of her nature--moral,
      intellectual, and physical. She is seriously handicapped, and
      the prize falls, through an error, to the designing girl who has
      ruined her happiness. Misfortune brings this maiden to a better
      mind and true repentance, and Nan comes to her own again in the
      esteem and respect of every one. There are many other attractive
      girl characters in this entertaining story.

  A NEST OF GIRLS; or, Boarding School Days. By E. WESTYN TIMLOW. With
  eight Illustrations by H. R. Richards.                           6/

      Here we are introduced to a bevy of smart, clever, American
      girls in a boarding-school, just at the time that Winifred
      Douglas becomes teacher of English Literature there. Winifred
      was wise, if only four-and-twenty, and the love she felt for her
      work was only equalled by the sense of responsibility she had
      for the impressionable girls under her charge. How she helped
      and influenced them for good, although she 'hurt sometimes,'
      comes out in the story, which is brimful of life and vivacity.
      The lady principal and the doings of a circle of immensely smart
      girls keep up the interest of this wholesome picture of
      girl-life.

  SEVEN MAIDS. By L. T. MEADE. With ten Illustrations by Percy

  A VERY NAUGHTY GIRL. By L. T. MEADE. With eight Illustrations by W.
  Rainey.                                                          5/

      All spirited maidens will follow with interest the training and
      development of the character of Evelyn Wynford, heiress of
      Castle Wynford, who, when she arrives from Tasmania at her
      uncle's house, which will afterwards be her own, is extremely
      self-conscious though clever, and is wilful, selfish, vain, and
      altogether unladylike. Her maid Jasper is her evil genius. As
      the story develops, her aunt, her cousin, and others begin to
      have a wholesome influence over her; then certain misdemeanours,
      which land her in serious trouble, humble her, and leave her
      much changed and truly repentant. The 'Naughty Girl' becomes
      transformed into a wise and comely young woman.

  COURAGE AND CONFLICT. A Series of Stories by G. A. HENTY, G.
  MANVILLE FENN, F. T. BULLEN, FRED WHISHAW, &c. With eight
  Illustrations by W. Boucher.                                     5/

      The names of the writers here are a guarantee for the sound
      entertainment provided in this companion volume to _Dash and
      Daring_, _Peril and Prowess_, and _Venture and Valour_. The
      story by Mr G. A. Henty is one of pioneering in the days of the
      early settlers in America, when the natives were troublesome,
      and who in this case rose up and nearly exterminated the white
      people. Mr G. M. Fenn tells a funny seaside story; while Andrew
      Balfour, Captain North, Walter Thornbury, James Patey, Fred
      Whishaw, Harold Bindloss, and others contribute dashing stories
      of peril and adventure, and great heroism in the hour of danger.

  THE KOPJE GARRISON: A Tale of the Boer War. By G. MANVILLE FENN.
  With eight Illustrations by W. Boucher.                          5/

      Mr Fenn transports his readers to the South African veldt,
      where, in imagination and in reality, so many of his countrymen
      have been for the past two years, and helps them to understand
      by means of this brisk and exciting tale what so many of our
      gallant soldiers have had to endure. This new story mainly
      follows the fortunes of two young men in khaki--Drew Lennox and
      Bob Dickenson--in and around the village of Groenfontein, which
      is bravely held by a little British force against the Boers.
      Sometimes half-starved, and subjected to night and day attacks,
      they make a little Gibraltar of the place, and ever render a
      good account of themselves. Something is always happening within
      or without Groenfontein, and in the end the story leaves Drew
      Lennox captain and V.C.

  MISS NONENTITY. By L. T. MEADE. With eight Illustrations by W.

      _Punch_ says--'My Baronitess informs me that she has not the
      slightest hesitation in advising everybody young enough to enjoy
      the story to make the acquaintance of _Miss Nonentity_, by L. T.
      Meade. She will be found a very delightful person, who proves
      herself to be a "Miss Somebody," and of considerable importance,
      too.'

  A POPULAR GIRL: A Tale of School Life in Germany. With six
  Illustrations by Jessie Wilson. By MAY BALDWIN.                 3/6

      A bright and naturally told story of school-girl life in
      Germany, in which the contrasts with school life in this country
      are strongly brought out. The heroine, a good-looking, clever
      English girl, in a high-class school in Munich, meets with a
      smart American girl who sins against many of the written and
      unwritten laws of etiquette by her pranks and the freedom of
      her manners and speech; yet all the while she is exceedingly
      liberal, good-hearted, and well-intentioned, and a good friend
      of the heroine, whom she shields from blame in connection with
      an act which led to disastrous consequences. The lady principal,
      Fräulein Luise, one of the best of women, cautions the heroine
      about her over-anxiety to be the best girl scholar; in spite of
      this she works openly and secretly for this end, which is gained
      at the expense, for a time, of her health and memory. It is
      while the heroine is at death's door that she learns a lifelong
      lesson that goodness is by far of more importance than
      cleverness.

  COSEY CORNER; or, How they Kept a Farm. By L. T. MEADE. With eighteen
  Illustrations by Percy Tarrant.                                 3/6

      Mrs L. T. Meade, in her best vein, here tells how four children
      show great ingenuity and cleverness in playing at keeping a
      farm, and manage to support themselves for a time from the
      proceeds. It is a wholesome lesson in self-help, and the reader
      will be inclined to agree with one of the children that 'there
      never was anything so nice in all the world as was life at Cosey
      Corner.' Honeysuckle Farm, the farmer and his wife, and the life
      there are prettily described, and the story is further helped by
      the eighteen charming illustrations by Mr Percy Tarrant.

  'MY PRETTY' AND HER BROTHER 'TOO.' And other Stories. By Mrs
  MOLESWORTH. Charmingly Illustrated by Lewis Baumer.             3/6

      Mrs Molesworth, always happily inspired when she writes for or
      about children, here presents ten short stories, in which little
      children are depicted in her inimitable style. Some of them have
      a Christmas flavour; all convey in an attractive form some
      lessons which young folks, and old folks too, would be none the
      worse for learning, as in 'My Pretty,' 'The Gold Scissors,' and
      'The Princess and the Fairy,' in which the receipt for happiness
      is given as unselfishness and shared blessings.

  JERRY DODDS, MILLIONAIRE: A School Yarn of Merriment and Mystery. By
  H. BARROW-NORTH. With six Illustrations by Harold Copping.      3/6

      Jerry Dodds is the good-hearted and open-handed son of a South
      African millionaire, and his fortunes are traced from the time
      he enters Westpool School until he is kidnapped, and recovered
      in a marvellous way. There are lively times at Westpool--a fire,
      a steamer adventure, a feast to his school chums given by Jerry
      Dodds, and abundant adventures, which any boy will follow with
      breathless interest. The youth of Westpool School are as bright,
      healthy, mischief-making, and mirth-provoking youngsters as any
      boy might wish to know. Out of one prank into another seems to
      have been their motto.

  by Arthur Rackham.                                              3/6

      Mr Charles R. Kenyon, author of the popular story, _The Young
      Ranchmen_, here tells a thrilling tale of adventure in which
      three old chums, in the search for the Inca's treasure in
      the remote regions of the mighty Andes, procure a little
      steam-launch for the navigation of the Amazon and some of its
      feeders, such as the Ucayali. Their whole course teems with
      remarkable experiences and adventures, and the climax is reached
      when, after several fights with strange tribes, they are shut up
      as prisoners in the Incala's treasure-chamber. How they escape,
      discover gold in great plenty, and begin a large colonisation
      scheme is told in a spirited manner.

  OUT OF BOUNDS: A Series of School Stories. By ANDREW HOME. With
  eight Illustrations by Harold Copping.                          3/6

      Mr Andrew Home understands and can write about the average
      schoolboy with clearness, humour, and adequate knowledge. In
      this gathering of short stories many phases of boy-life are
      dealt with, in and out of school. There are humorous adventures,
      some of which are on the point of ending tragically. All the
      stories are wholesome and entertaining, and inculcate the
      virtues of truthfulness, sympathy, bravery, and attention to
      duty in the battle of life.

  MORE ANIMAL STORIES. Edited by Robert Cochrane. Including _Rab and
  his Friends_, by Dr John Brown. Fully Illustrated.              2/6

      One of the finest animal stones ever written, Dr John Brown's
      _Rab and his Friends_, is placed in the forefront of this
      volume, with an illustration from the painting of this subject
      by W. G. Stevenson, R.S.A. Like its predecessor, _Four Hundred
      Animal Stories_, it comprises a gathering of interesting,
      pathetic, or amusing animal tales, from _Chambers's Journal_,
      and from the works of Captain Brown, Charles Boner, Edward
      Jesse, John M'Diarmid, and Christopher North. Mary Russell
      Mitford found stories of which the animal world were the heroes
      'more touching than the grander histories of men and women.'
      Though the proper study of mankind is man, much may he learned
      by such stories of sympathy and kindness to the lower creation.
      A closing chapter bears on kindness to animals, as do also many
      of the illustrations.

STORIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.

  LASSIE. By the Author of _Laddie_, _Tip-Cat_, &c. With Frontispiece
  by Jessie Wilson.                                                1/

      No reader of this author's _Laddie_ has ever been able quite to
      forget that pathetic story. After a lapse of many years the
      same, writer has written its counterpart, in which the heroine,
      booked as a nurse for South Africa, stays at home for the
      apparently less heroic duty of keeping house for a rather
      shiftless father, and in doing so she develops much quiet
      heroism and unselfishness, shown further in her nursing work in
      the village, during which she falls a victim to an epidemic. The
      story shows how a very quiet life may be as heroic as one spent
      amid the rude alarms of war.

  COLA MONTI; or, The Story of a Genius. By the Author of _John
  Halifax, Gentleman_.                                             1/

  THE CHILDREN OF MELBY HALL. By M. and J. M'KEAN.                 1/

      These talks and stories of plant and animal life afford simple
      lessons on the importance of 'Eyes and No Eyes,' and show what
      an immense interest the study of natural history, even in its
      simplest forms, will produce in the minds of young folks.
