  • Frontispiece
    The Native Quarter, Algiers

    The Narrow twisted streets, with their mysterious houses, provide a vivid contrast for the balmy sweetnes of the air in Algiers, and for the brilliance of the fashionable French quarter.
  • The Call of the Riviera
    By Estelle H. Ries

    The climate, luminous and balmy, is one of the fundamental advantages of wintering in the Riviera, a fact that has made the Mediterranean shore for centuries the home of pleasure.
  • Palermo, Where All is Picturesque
    By Ellen H. Ried

    With no small interest did I approach Palermo, one of the oldest and most beautiful of the many old and beautiful Mediterranean ports.
  • Algiers
    By Wm. K. Boland

    The sun is but one of the gifts of Algiers to those people whose sun-worshiping tendencies take them over the seas and far away each winter season.
  • On the Riviera
    Scenes of Monaco, Grand Corniche, Nice and Eze and the Côte d'Azure.
  • Charming Villefranche
    By H. A. Phillips

    Villefranche, with its harbor like a chalice of bright lapis lazuli, its colony of painters and writers, its picturesque natives, is among the smaller jewls of the Riveria, still unspoiled by the madding throng.
  • Traveling in Winter
    By Helen Nicholson

    To travel when snow and ice are the order of the day at home, to poke among the ruined splendors of dynasties that were hoary with age when Cleopatra was a baby -- that is to make holiday when the sun shines!
