Originally published in 1904. Interesting collection of early 20th century short stories, with religious-moralistic lessons, and quite a lot of humour. I read these with mild enjoyment, but their value is perhaps more for the scholar or for someone seeking out tales to enjoy for their curiousity factor, rather than for pure amusement in the modern mode.
Neil Denham
A strange little moral tale, which I read in less than an hour. A friend gave me this in a nice little hardback form, from 1901, which makes it one of the oldest books I own.

This version is clearly adapted from a play, as this is very dialogue heavy, but entertaining none the less!
Earl Solper
The tone of this short story is not as dark as The Dancing Partner, nor is it as light-hearted as tone of most of the author's short stories. Instead, it has a strongly religious character. The "mystery" is almost immediately obvious. It is, however, shorter than most sermons.
