Reviews.: A Trilogy of Science

THOSE who remember the interest with which we greeted the first volume of Mr. Noyes' “Torch-Bearers” seven years ago will understand the satisfaction with which the concluding portion is now received. This is all the greater because the third volume is certainly the best from the artistic point of view. It contains one well-conceived and highly interesting incident, around which the author's pictures of the past and incidental lyrics are effectively grouped, and it leads up to a full and eloquent exposition of the religious synthesis with which the history of science inspires him.
