Preface

Many of the stories contained in this book were originally published in the columns of The Bulletin, Sydney; others first saw light in the pages of the Melbourne Argus, Punch, and The Antipodean and Cosmos. To the proprietors of these publications I am grateful for permission to republish the stories. The initial story “Below and On Top”, is now printed for the first time.

For the privilege of using Mr. Phil May's illustrations I am indebted to the kindness of the proprietors of The Bulletin. These drawings were made as far back as 1888, and have been reproduced from prints.
