LITERATURE AND LIFE Last Days in a Dutch Hotel
by William Dean Howells
LAST DAYS IN A DUTCH HOTEL
When we said that we were going to Scheveningen, in the middle of
September, the portier of the hotel at The Hague was sure we should be
very cold, perhaps because we had suffered so much in his house already;
and he was right, for the wind blew with a Dutch tenacity of purpose for
a whole week, so that the guests thinly peopling the vast hostelry seemed
to rustle through its chilly halls and corridors like so many autumn
leaves. We were but a ...

CHRONICLES OF CARLINGFORD
It is natural to suppose that the arrival of the new Rector was a rather
exciting event for Carlingford. It is a considerable town, it is true,
nowadays, but then there are no alien activities to disturb the place no
manufactures, and not much trade. And there is a very respectable amount
of very good society at Carlingford. To begin with, it is a pretty
Rupert Chawner Brooke (August 3, 1887 – April 23, 1915) was an English poet known for his idealistic War Sonnets written during the First World War (especially The Soldier), as well as for his poetry written outside of war, especially The Old Vicarage, Grantchester and The Great Lover. He was also known for his boyish good looks, which prompted the Irish poet William Butler Yeats to describe him as “the handsomest young man in England”.

Just about a year ago, two enthusiastic young men came to see me, and during the course of the visit announced that they were starting a campaign to make their living in science fiction and also to become "names" in the best science fiction magazines. They planned to collaborate on some material, and write on their own as well, intending to make the grade both ways.
One of the pair was a well known science fiction fan, who had appeared once or twice in the "pro mags," as fans designate journals like this one. The other was Ra...

THE WOMEN OF THE FRENCH SALONS
By Amelia Gere Mason
It has been a labor of love with many distinguished Frenchmen to recall the memories of the women who have made their society so illustrious, and to retouch with sympathetic insight the features which time was beginning to dim. One naturally hesitates to enter a field that has been gleaned so carefully, and with such brilliant results, by men like Cousin, Sainte Beuve, Goncourt, and others of lesser note. But the social life of the two centuries in which women played so important a role in France is al...
