Prefatory

THE files of The Bulletin for twenty years offer so much material for a book such as this, that it was not possible to include more than a small number of the stories and literary sketches judged worthy of republication. Consequently many excellent Australian writers are here unrepresented, their work being perforce held over for The Second Bulletin Story Book, although it is work of a quality equal to that which is now given.

The risk and expense of this publication are undertaken by The Bulletin Newspaper Company, Limited. Should any profits accrue, a share of forty per cent, will be credited to the writers represented.

Owing to the length of time which, in some cases, has elapsed since the original publication in The Bulletin, the names and addresses of some of the writers have been lost sight of; and their work appears over pen-names, The editor will be glad if these writers will communicate with him and assist in completing the Biographical Index at the end of the book. Any suggestions for revision or improvement of the stories or of the book will be gratefully received.

The Bulletin Story Book is copyrighted by the Bulletin Newspaper Company, Limited; and the contents must not be reprinted without the permission of the proprietors.

1st December, 1901.

NOTE.—The First Edition of THE BULLETIN STORY BOOK having been completely sold out, the great demand for the book which still exists has rendered necessary the publication of this, the Second Impression.

1st November, 1902.
