St. Bartholomew's Eve: A Tale of the Huguenot Wars. By G. A. HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by H. J. DRAPER, and a Map. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6 s.

The title of this story takes you at once to its subject. The hero, Philip Fletcher, is a right true English lad, but he has a French connection on the mother's side. This kinship induces him to cross the Channel in order to take a share in that splendid struggle for freedom known as the Huguenot wars. Naturally he sides with the Protestants, distinguishes himself in various battles, and receives rapid promotion for the zeal and daring with which he carries out several secret missions. At length, however, he is entrapped in Paris, with other prominent Huguenots, on that terrible St. Bartholomew's Eve, when the tocsin gave the signal at midnight for the massacre to begin. It is an enthralling narrative, and the chapter which deals with the escape of the hero out of that monstrous city is one of the most thrilling in a story which is full of interest.
