Excerpt from Four Hundred Good Stories

A collection of anecdotes, like corned beef hash, should be judged as much by what is left out as by what is put in. The editor has sought to exclude from this little book all stories of purely local appeal, as well as stories that depend for their humor upon ridicule of any nation or creed.

The index of the subjects illustrated by these stories will, it is thought, be helpful to public speakers. A speech is a long, narrow passage leading to some broad conclusion. Anecdotes are the lamps that light the way. If the passage be obscure and gloomy, it may be that few will follow it. But if the passage be cheerfully lighted, all will gladly accompany the guide, and long after reaching the conclusion they will remember with pleasure the way through which he led them.
