    By crouching along hedges I at last reached the railway a mile or two from the station, and began my search. I went early to bed, and fell into a troubled sleep, from which I awoke with a shiver. I reached out of bed to a chair and turned it upside down, so that the sight of it when I rose might remind me that I had something to do. It seemed to come natural to other persons to present me with new tobacco-pouches, until I had nearly a score lying neglected in drawers. Those were days!

    I saw that the game was up, and closed "Anne Judge, Spinster. Then Mr. Me he had flung fiercely on the floor of the house-boat. These, of course, were selfish reflections; but my position was a trying one. My Lady Nicotine isn't much of a novel - its origins as a series of essays for the St James's Gazette are only too clear - but it may be the only work of literature to take giving up smoking as its central theme.

    Barrie by now was living in London and no longer a literally anonymous magazine contributor trudging Grub Street. There were nights when I awoke with a pain at my heart that made me hold my breath. Description An ode to the power of nicotine, by the Scottish novelist and dramatist, best known for inventing the character of Peter Pan. Gilray used to boast of a way of mending a hole in a tobacco-pouch that was better than sewing.

This makes them run together, he says, and I believed him until he experimented upon my pouch. But the affair upstairs was too delicate to talk of, and all I could do was to try to keep his mind from brooding on it, by making him tell me things about politics.

The retention of my tobacco-pouch would not have retarded her recovery, and I could not help picturing my pouch, my oldest friend in the world, lying at the foot of that fence.

It never, I fear, quite recovered from its night in the rain, and as my female relatives refused to touch it, I had to sew it together now and then myself.

Pettigrew's dream of committing suicide under the mental pressure caused by his having undertaken to publish a collection of Jubilee Odes is one of the most laughable things that we have read for a long time.

How Gilray came by this chrysanthemum I do not inquire; but whether, in the circumstances, he should not have made a clean breast of it to me is another matter.

However, I did not object to a hole here and there. It gives the reflections and experiences of a typical London bachelor who was a devotee of tobacco—and especially of a very fascinating Arcadia mixture—before he was married, and in whose rooms of an evening there used to meet several kindred spirits.

My old bachelor friends complain because I do not allow smoking in the house, but I am always ready to explain my position, and I have not an atom of pity for them. Possibly a doctor who was himself a smoker would have pooh-poohed them.

The scene as I flung my old friend out at the window had burned itself into my brain, and I could go to the spot to-day as readily as I went on that occasion.

Barrie's heart is in Scottish life and character; and wherever a man's heart is, there is his literary treasure also. When they told him, as one or two did, that they were in love, he always said that he had gone through that stage ages ago. Gilray maintains that instead of playing "fool's tricks" like these "fool's tricks!

I saw that I had done wrong in casting it from me.

MY LADY NICOTINE.*

I never mentioned these experience to a human being. Here is a fair specimen of wife-deception and light nicotian humour :— " Several years having elapsed,' said Pettigrew, 'since I pre- tended to smoke and enjoy my first Celebro, I could not now undeceive my wife—it would be such a blow to her.

There is nothing serious, there is hardly anything real—even a guffaw of laughter—in it.

My Lady Nicotine

Only one of the Arcadian band is a married man; wives are, indeed, looked upon in this book as beings who either set themselves deliberately to prevent their male relatives from smoking, or almost unconsciously bring about this result, and who have occasionally, at all events, to be duped.

A hilarious series of anecdotes that Barrie rattles off in these pages, almost with a motto: how to free themselves from the smoke, stop thinking about it. My Lady Nicotine "—a book that suggests but is very unlike " The Reveries of a Bachelor." The former is urban: the latter is provincial.

A briar pipe filled with Arcadia Mixture starts the reveries in the one ; a hearth fire, in the other. The five bachelors in " My Lady. I once knew a lady who said of her husband that he looked nice when sitting with a rug over him.

My female relatives seemed to have the same opinion of my tobacco-pouch; for they never saw it, even in my own room, without putting a book or pamphlet over it. Jul 29,  · Free kindle book and epub digitized and proofread by Project Gutenberg.
