EFhe Ghost Kings

(Rider Haggard).

In this novel Mr. Haggard gets back to his / much-loved Zulus, and begins his story in the / days of Dingaan, though he wanders far afield >

in the Dark Continent as the plot develops. ^ The heroine is the daughter of a crazy mission- j

ary, who has a "call" to convert Boers and

Zulus, but not an atom of ability, and is ul- 1 timately murdered with all his family except 1 the girl. He proves to the full the truth of his < wife's saying that "this is a bad world \ for saints and their families—especially { their families." To bell what befalls the girl ( would spoil the story for many readers, so let < it simply be said that she has adventures as / thrilling as any of this author's creations have ; had in other stories, and finds herself in equally

wonderful places and among equally wonderful '

people. Also there is a ^satisfactory sort of } hero, whose fate is mysteriously linked with <

hers in the most approved fashion, who rather > prefers to risk his life than otherwise, and is (

all that he should be. And there are brave and ( faithful Zulus, and cruel savages and savage ( white men, and all the usual South African ac- r

cessories. Published by Cassell's. Our copies | •re from Dymock's Circulating Library 'and <

Cole's Library. ,
