THE oceans are big and broad. I believe two-thirds of theearth's surface is covered with water. What people inhabit thiswater has always been a subject of curiosity to the inhabitantsof the land. Strange creatures come from the seas at times,and perhaps in the ocean depths are many, more strange thanmortal eye has ever gazed upon.This story is fanciful. In it the sea people talk and act muchas we do, and the mermaids especially are not unlike the fair-ies with whom we have learned to be familiar. Yet they are realsea people, for all that, and with the exception of Zog the Magi-cian they are all supposed to exist in the ocean's depths.I am told that some very learned people deny that mermaidsor sea-serpents have ever inhabited the oceans, but it would be very difficult for them to prove such an assertion unless theyhad lived under the water as Trot and Cap'n Bill did in thisstory.I hope my readers who have so long followed Dorothy's ad- ventures in the Land of Oz will be interested in Trot's equallystrange experiences. The ocean has always appealed to me asa veritable wonderland, and this story has been suggested tome many times by my young correspondents in their letters.Indeed, a good many childred have implored me to "writesomething about the mermaids," and I have willingly grantedthe request.Hollywood, 1911.L. FRANK BAUM.
