Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Many of the sketches which form the present volume have already appeared in print. Others of them are new. Of the reprinted pieces “Melpomenus Jones,” “Policeman Hogan,” “A Lesson in Fiction,” and many others were contributions by the author to the New YorkTruth. The “Boarding House Geometry” first appeared in Truth, and was subsequently republished in the London Punch, and in a many great other journals. The sketches called the “Life of John Smith” and “Society Chit Chat” appeared in Puck. “The New Pathology” was first printed in the Toronto Saturday Night and was subsequently republished by the London Lancet, and by various German periodicals in the form of a translation. The story called “Number Fifty-Six” is taken from the Detroit Free Press. “My Financial Career” was originally contributed to the New York Life, and has been frequently reprinted. The wide circulation which some of the above sketches have enjoyed has encouraged the author to prepare the present collection. The author desires to express his sense of obligation to the proprietors of the above journals who have kindly permitted him to republish the contributions which appeared in their columns.
