The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 72

Although the tale narrated herein has been reprinted at different periods in New Zealand journals, frequent pressing applications have been made for its publication in a form less fugitive than that which the columns of a newspaper afford. The present day, when the atmosphere is agitated by presages of "war's alarms," seems a fitting time to comply with these requests, all the more so that, only the other day, Lord Salisbury set before a large and enthusiastic audience at Cardiff, as a possibility "by no means imaginative," the effects of a raid by a foreign cruiser on that important English county town,—a narrative which forms a curious counterpart to the fanciful sketch of the "Kaskowiski" visitation to Auckland of one-and-twenty years ago. Hence the present brochure, with its collection of various statistical and other information germane to the prominent war topics of the hour, which are engrossing the attention of millions of people on both sides of the planet.

Wellington, New Zealand,

D. M. Luckie.
