Five-sixths of a Smart Set set

Over at From the Libertarian Library, I've added translations of two more of the short stories by Han Ryner published in French in The Smart Set:
Of the new pieces, one revolves around a bit of wordplay which translates fairly well, and the other is rather opaque in any language. All are entertaining, and together I think they give some indication of Ryner's breadth as a writer of fiction.

The sixth story was not available online, and I've sent of an interlibrary loan request for the text.
