Sylvan scenes usually tempt us to believe that money does not matter and the relation between a fool and his money is proverbial: but, as Mr. Chesterton reminds us, 'This world is wild as an old wives' tale', and proverbs, like rules, must needs have exceptions to prove them.

A Wayside Comedy by Laurence Housman.

It is the time between sunset and dark, when a lonely road is crossed by shadows and dim moving things, and travellers hasten to the friendliness of the nearest village. This road has high banks, above which stand great trees with gnarled and twisted roots. On a fallen tree-trunk sits Tim, an old tramp, smoking rather dejectedly. He starts up at the sound of a low whistle and awaits his pal Tony, who comes - limping hurriedly towards him. Tony is younger and stronger than Tim, but both are in their setting on the high bank between the great trees whose shadows cross the lonely road.

(Paraphrased for the English Stage by Granville Barker.)

Scene.-The living-room of a bachelor-flat in Vienna. The owner, Anatol, is an idle young bachelor who has taste and the means to express it. In spite of the beauty and harmony of his surroundings, he is restless and uncertain and he talks to his friend Max about it.
