WITH the papers in this dainty volume readers of the Daily News are already familiar. In spirit and style they closely resemble the papers included in the same author's “By Leafy Ways.” Mr. Knight has a genuine love for the poetic aspects of Nature, and in these “Idylls,”as in his previous book, he gives many a vivid sketch of scenes and incidents by which he himself has been impressed. The text is illustrated by a number of photogravures from drawings by Mr. E. T. Compton.
