Most of the stories in this collection appeared originally in the Pall Mall Budget, two were published in the Pall Mall Gazette, and one in St James’s Gazette. I desire to make the usual acknowledgments. The third story in the book was, I find, reprinted by the Observatory, and the “Lord of the Dynamos” by the Melbourne Leader.
