The Lady of Blossholme

(Rider Haggard).

Easily first in his own department of fiction, Mr. Haggard is never content without trying to excel in other departments, where special ists have him at a disadvantage. In this case he takes the time of Henry VIII. for material out of which to built a semi-historical novel, which has to do with the abolition of monas teries, and 9hows (pace Father Benson) that in some cases the work wanted doing. He ba3 produced a good, readable story, and sup plies excitement and love interest enough to please everyone. If the work is not on the same level as those which first made him fam ous, it is only another illustration of the truth of the proverb about the cobbler and his last. Our copy from Dymock's Circulating Library, Sydney.
