I. ON CRITICISM.
Criticism is the art of judging. As reasonable persons we are called
upon to be constantly pronouncing judgment, and either acting upon such

judgment in all things." I am aware that it is an old sa...

THE BEGINNING OF THE SEA STORY OF AUSTRALIA
From "The Tapu Of Banderah and Other Stories"
By Louis Becke
C. Arthur Pearson Ltd.
To many people in England the mention of Australia conjures pictures of tented gold fields and tall, black bearded, red shirted bushrangers; of mounted police recruited from "flaxen haired younger sons of good old English families, well groomed and typically Anglo Saxon"; of squatters and sheep runs; of buckjumpers ridden by the most daring riders in the world; and of much more to the same purpose; but never is presented a pic...

A delightful collection of 48 essays on various topics of the human condition that caught his fancy. Witty, insightful and funny of course and on occasion thought provoking and even disturbing. From the preface "These sketches gave me pain to write; they will give the judicious patron pain to read; therefore we are quits. I think, as I look over their slattern paragraphs, of that most tragic hour—it falls about 4 p. m. in the office of an evening newspaper—when the unhappy compiler tries to round up the broodings of the day and still get home in time for supper.

My Dear Sidney Colvin,
The journey which this little book is to describe was very agreeable and fortunate for me. After an uncouth beginning, I had the best of luck to the end. But we are all travellers in what John Bunyan calls the wilderness of this world all, too, travellers wi...
