PREFACE

Some people complain that science is dry. That is, of course, a matter of taste. For my own part, I like my science and my champagne as dry as I can get them. But the public thinks otherwise. So I have ventured to sweeten accompanying samples as far as possible to suit the demand, and trust they will meet with the approbation of consumers.

Of the specimens here selected for exhibition, my title piece originally appeared in the Fortnightly Review : 'Honey Dew' and 'The First Potter' were contributions to Longman's Magazine : and all the rest found friendly shelter between the familiar yellow covers of the good old Cornhill . My thanks are due to the proprietors and editors of those various periodicals for kind permission to reproduce them here.
