of Edinburgh. He was for a time attached to the staff of a Nottingham newspaper, but in 1886 he obeyed the urge which calls ambitious young Celts to London. Essays and novels from his pen soon began to attract notice, the first of these in order of time being Auld Licht Idylls and The Little Minister. The stage then claimed his allegiance, and he inaugurated a most successful career as a drama tist with a farce called Walker, London. His best - known novel, The Little Minister, has been adapted both for the stage and for the screen, and the nucleus of the famous and perennial Peter Pan is to be found in The Little White Bird. In The Admirable Crichton we have an amusing, slightly satirical study of an aristocratic family wrecked, with their butler and between-maid, on a singularly agreeable desert island ; in Dear Brutus we have the supernatural element most skilfully introduced, and a mixed company of people, after a magical glimpse of what they might have been, are promised a chance of turning' might have been' into 'may still be'; in Mary Rose we go to an °' island that likes to be visited," and see the exquisite creature, half wraith, half reality, who gives her name to the play. Barrie's titles are often very original and suggestive. Dear Brutus is taken from the well-known lines in Shakespeare's .Julius Ccesar:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.
