Several attempts at fables cover the first few pages of this issue. Only two deserve notice. "The Wise Man," by R. P. Utter, is good, but one wishes its tone were otherwise. The dialogue is well done and the topic decidedly modern. The best of the other attempts is "The Mongol and the Chinaman," by Albert Dwight Sheffield. After reading all these essays, however, one sees a reason for the quotation which heads the collection: "For the term fable is not very easy to define rigorously." Two efforts at versifying, the first "To a Guinevere" having no excuse for being, and the second, a "Verse," by Percy Adams Hutchison, which is exceptionally good, complete the number.
