THE LITTLE BACK ROOM

OUR LITTLE LIFE
" has written," said an eminent English writer recently, “the best short stories published in English in the last fifty years." And his fellow-authors "fell all over each other," as Barrie put it, " for the honor of writing prefaces” to his books. And among them besides Barrie are such men as W. D. Howells, G. K. Chesterton, W. Robertson Nicoll, H. G. Wells, Maurice Hewlett, Arthur Pinero, W. J. Locke, Neil Monroe and A. Neil Lyons, who says
that the volume published April 18 A Chair on the Boulevard
is “ one of the few really amusing books published during my lifetime" and contains “the funniest story of this century.” Its humor has a gay
stimulating sparkle like that of While Paris Laughed
Pranks and Passions of the Poet Tricotrin. The Man Who Understood Women and Other Stories
Compact of wise and witty insight. Conrad in Quest of His Youth
A quaint and whimsical story of a sentimental
effort to recapture well remembered associations. The Worldlings
A story in which the villain meets his just dues,
with your full sympathy, respect and liking. The House of Lynch The Actor-Manager The Position of Peggy Harper When Love Flies Out o' the Window Cynthia
All of them novels which are exquisitely human, written from intimate knowledge of the struggles of the young actors, artists, or writers who people his most interesting world.
By J. G. SIME A human novel of an undaunted little seamstress who welcomes to her heart the strayed, the lost, the suffering of the tenement in which she makes her home. “An idyl of the commonplace ... so intensely human that it has an interest for all humanity."-Rochester PostErpress.
