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 ...

SIX LETTERS FROM THE COLONIES.
BY R. C. SEATON.
HULL: WILDRIDGE & CO.
I was absent from England eleven months, from November, 1884, to October, 1885. The first three of these Letters are reprinted, with slight alterations, from the Eastern Morning News . The last three were written after my return to England. As I have not cared to keep up the fiction of having written them from Australia, they may contain some references to events subsequent to my return. It is often ...
Fascinating San Francisco
"O Warder of Two Continents!" Bret Harte
Enthroned on hills, San Francisco captivates the stranger who sees it
from the Bay by the vivacity of its landscape long before revealing any
of its intimate lures. Whether you approach in the early morning, when
gulls arc wheeling above the palette of tones of the Bay, or at night,
when illuminated ferryboats glide by like the yellow bannered halls of
fable, the buoyancy of San Francisco is manifest.
It increases as you pass through the Ferry Buildin...

EEN EN ANDER OVER HET DORPSLEVEN IN TRANSVAAL.
Een gedeelte van de Boeren, die in 1836 en volgende jaren wegtrokken
uit de Kaapkolonie, bereikte na een langen en moeilijken zwerftocht
de landstreek die nu Noord Oostelijk Transvaal is. In die houtrijke,
vruchtbare wereld, toen vol van allerlei soorten wild, beviel het hun
zoo goed, dat zij besloten daar voorgoed te blijven, en in een der
mooiste valleien legden zij hun eerste dorpje uit, naar een Hollander,
die, vanuit wat nu Lourenco Marques is, met hen handel zou drijven,
BADDECK AND THAT SORT OF THING
By Charles Dudley Warner
TO JOSEPH H. TWICHELL
It would be unfair to hold you responsible for these light sketches of a summer trip, which are now gathered into this little volume in response to the usual demand in such cases; yet you cannot escape altogether. For it was you who first taught me to say the name Baddeck; it was you who showed me its position on the map, and a seductive letter from a home missionary on Cape Breton Island, in relation to the abundance of trout and salmon in his field of labor. That missionar...

A ROMANCE OF OLD ALBION.
OPENS WITH LEAVE TAKING.
Nearly two thousand seven hundred years ago or somewhere about eight
hundred years BúCú there dwelt a Phoenician sea captain in one of the
eastern sea ports of Greece known at that period, or soon after, as
This captain was solid, square, bronzed, bluff, and resolute, as all
sea captains are or ought to be whether ancient or modern. He owned,
as well as commanded, one of those curious vessels with one mast and a
mighty square sail, fifty o...
