"Mrs. McLerie." By J. J. Bell. Copy

right by the Century Company, New York; 1904. Those who read with great delight “Wee McGreegor" will gladly welcome this new book by Mr. Bell, and will not be disappointed, for they will find it full of genuine humor. Mrs. McLerie is a Scotch "Mrs. Malaprop," and her natural quaintness is improved by her absurd "twists." Her "auld friend” Mrs. Munro is also a most interesting character, and "ma' man” adds zest to the sketches. It is hard to select any one chapter as representing the book, but perhaps "Mrs. McLerie's Visit to the Zoo” is as amusing as any.
