The Trail of ’98

I FOUND the Youth awaiting me. “Say, pardiner,” said he, “I was just getting a bit anxious about you. I thought sure that fairy had you in tow for a sucker. I’m going to stay right with you, and you’re not going to shake me. See!” “All right,” I said; “come on and we’ll watch the dance.”

A Night In New Arabia

THE great city of Bagdad-on-the Subway, which is to say, New York, is caliph-ridden. Its palaces, bazaars, khans and byways are thronged with Al Rashids in divers disguises, seeking diversion and victims for their unbridled generosity.

THE ayah, brown, barefooted and toe-ringed, paced silently up and down the matting, crooning to the foster-child in her arms: “Humpty Dumpty churgear chut, Humpty Dumpty girgear phut: Na Rajah ka pultan na Rajah ka gora Humpty Dumpty ka kuddy ne jora."

Tea From Japan

NOW, that was a very nice thing for the Smiths to do—to remember the Johnsons’ choice and to send back from Japan a package of the really genuine superfine tea. It arrived by Pacific express, all carefully done up in brown paper, and sealed, and bearing strange, romantic hieroglyphics slashed upon it, evidently with a camel-hair brush.

“Fun”

BRUCE, immaculately groomed, a cigarette between his lips, came off the pier and started up the Board-walk toward his hotel. It was a deliciously cool, starlit night, with salt air blowing straight from the ocean.

“A Fossil, A Freak and A Fanatic”

THE world lost three remarkable teachers during the year 1910.
