The Life and Letters of Henry Cuyler Bunner

CHAPTER XV
APPROACHING HIS END

AS WE LOOK over the remaining Pucks which Bunner edited, we find no let-up on Bunner's part--until the last few weeks of his life. Throughout 1895 the weekly prints the "Suburban Sage" series with the stories or sketches in the order in which they appear in the volume later issued: "Mr. Chedby on a Regular Nuisance," "Early Stages of the Bloomer Fever," "The Suburban Horse," "The Building Craze," "Moving In," "A Water-Color House," "The Pointers," "The Furnace," "The Time-Table Test," "The Society Church," "The Suburbanite and His Golf," "The Suburban Dog," "The Newcomers," and "The First of It." The book contains two other sketches previously mentioned: "The Sporting Scheme" and "The Evolution of the Suburbanite." To the biographer the array seems amazingly prolific for a man about to die within a year. And in that year there can be found other Bunner contributions both to Puck and to the magazines that liked to take his work. There is, for example, a story called "A Ten-Dollar Story" in one of the spring issues of Puck, and the Christmas number prints the first portion of a pantomime in four acts called "The Hawthorn Spray" and another "Ballad of the Town." Bunner is now buying the work of George Ade, Carolyn Wells, and Ellis Parker Butler; and Pack is still the leading comic weekly in America. Then in the May 27, 1896, issue of his paper appears Bunner's obituary. And with the issue of June 3 his name disappears from the editorial page. The very last of his contributions to Puck appears, after his death, in the Christmas number for the same year. It is called "Grandmother Danderhoof's Revolt," and is, as one would suspect, a story.
