THE STAR CLOTHING COMPANY
By, E. J. Vanderhoof, Prosideut.
By DOROTHY DOUGLAS
(, 1S20. by McCture Newspaper Syndicate.)
Evelyn roamed aimlessly, but with
exceeding enjoyment, through tho
lovely Loug Island road. She hoped
her destination would bo tho Nassau
station and thence by train back to
tho city, but Evolyn's country Jaunts
did not always lend her In tho direc
tion sho fancied sho was going.
On this particular Saturday after
noon In Into September she was any
where but near tho Nassau station.
Evelyn wns not, however, awaro of
this fact nor of anything savo tho
extreme freshness of the air and the
Joy of being away from the small of
ilce on Broadway, where she read
numerous stories by authors and au
thors In the inuklng. Each Saturday,
as It rolled along In tho summer time,
found her fnr from Broadway and
sometimes too far In the heart of the
country for her own safety. On more
than one occasion she had been forced
by the similes of night to beg n night's
lodging In the nearest farmhouse.
Evelyn always reserved the time be
tween Saturday afternoon and Mon
day morning for herself. During the
week sho whs, as an editor, at the
beck and call of anyone who chanced
Into tho ofllce, nnd so every week-end
sho gave to her own company and
took her tramps alone. It was thus
that sho managed to slip Into her of
fice chair Monday mornings with n
clear vision nnd eyes unwearied and
cheeks fresh with color of new life.
"You great big beautiful sun," she
whimsically remarked to the crimson
ball that was slowly climbing down
behind tho trees; you seem to have
Just dashed across tiio sky today, nnd
yet I suppose you have really taken
your leisure." Evelyn heaved n sIrIi,
for this was Sunday evening nnd the
next morning would have to see her
at her desk heaped high with manu
scripts. She wns swinging past an orchard
In which the apples were red nnd ripe
and casting their fruity fragrance In
to her hungry senses. Evelyn couldn't
remember having wonted anything
In the way of food ns much as sho
wanted some of those rosy apples.
Desire harnessed to physical ability
tempted her to leap over the fence
and pilfer her choice from the orchard
Just as any small, Hungry boy would
do, but conscience Dade her proceed
farther and perhaps secure her apples
honestly from a fnrm hand.
Evelyn was rewarded for her hon
orable Intentions by seeing u sign ja
bit farther on which stated that ap
ples were for sale, nnd she pranced
Joyfully through a dilapidated path
way overhung with grap vines to a
shockingly unkempt but curiously
She knocked In vnln on the paint
less door and finally win nn unlady
like vehemence. However, there wns
no response, nnd Evelyn's desire for
apples only Increased with tho diffi
culty of procuring some.
Discouraged, she started away, but
as she passed the odorous orchard,
she decided to help ncrself and leave
payment for what sho took.
Sho selected 3?lx beauties, pondered
a moment as to thelr-selllng price nnd
took u fiO-ecnt piece from her purse,
rummaged among notes, powder puffs
nnd numerous feminine appurtenances
until she discovered an errant hnnd
kerchlef. Into this she put hor money,
and with a short bit of string secured
It to tho branch or nn apple tree
one that would catch tho eye of the
fanner when he should return to his
Munching contentedly at an apple,
Evelyn continued her way along the
rond, and In tho course of time ar
rived back In the city nnd at her small,
apartment, the rent of which had been
raised to a schocklng height only the
It was during tho month of Novem
berEvelyn remembered well the day
that she received n splendid story
from ono of the newer writers.
"Ho may hu,ve been struggling for
years nnd years," thought Evelyn,
"but his name Is only creeping about
magazine circles now."
Sho hud not forgotten the Incident
of the apples, because her brain sel
dom erased any of litr wonderful
etchings of country rambles. They
were all very precious to her and this
iitory coming from the pen of a vivid
writer gave Evelyn a fierce hunger
for the days of n summer past.
She knew, of course, that the In
cident of the story was Just one of the
dainty accessories to a good story
that finding of (If ly cents In n hnnd
kerchief tied to the branch of a tree.
It had been brought Into the story
os one of the quaint experiences of
one who dwelt on the broad country
So unusual wos the coincidence of
tlant Idle moment of her own hnvlng
drifted Into this stranger's story and
that very story having come Into her
own edltorlnl hands that Evelyn was
tempted to carry on the other side of
the tale. She wanted to dash Into a
tux!, tako a truln for Glen Cove and
the rnmshnckle cottage, find the young
author seated boforo n flro with his
pipo In his mouth dreaming of more
stories, fall madly In love with him
and live hcfpy ever after. ,
Instend of that Evelyn dictated a
most editorial letter to John Cutstono
telling him that his story was charm
ing and offering him $150 for it. She
added also that she would bo Inter
ested In mealing him should he be In
town In tho near future.
So John Cutstone wns In town In
tho nr future. In fact, ho took the
first train out of Glen Covo nftor he
hnd motored down to the village post
ofllce and got his letter from Evelyn
Monroe, editor of the "Bonst."
It wbh, as always happens In the
best of fiction, n case of almost ln
stantani-ous lovt at toast, tho Instant
Evelyn found hor band in that ot John
Cutstono sho had n wondorful feeling
of contentment John know Unit with
Evelyn's eyes looking Into his ho had
found something ho thought only ex
isted In romantic fiction.
"Your cottage Is painfully In need
of paint," waa tho editor's stupid re
mark. "I will paint it next spring," John
promised, "I wns too busy gardening
and writing all these stories that have
been bringing mo In big checks to do
any dolling up around the place." Had
his eyes been nnywhoro hut fixed
Btcndlly on her face John would hnvo
turned In surprise to nsk: "And how
do' you know anything about my
"I happen to have boon the poor
city worker who purchased tho ap
ples and left my best handkerchief
"By Jove, nol I have speculated n
hundred times beside my tiro ns to
tho Identity of that quaint wanderer,
but never for a moment expected "
A wonderful blush springing Into tho
editor's checks reminded Cutstono
Just In time-, that he hnd only three
minutes before met Evelyn Monroe,
and that eveu In the best of fiction tho
hero Isn't quite likely to propose on,
so short an acquaintance "So fam
ous a person," ho tactfully finished
and, watched the blush recedo unwill
ingly. "You arc to bo the famous one,"
Evelyn said with sweetly serious eyes
fixed on the author; "your touch Is
very, very charming. A rich and
broad experience In life ns you go
nlong year by year should produce In
you the power to become a writer of
the highest order."
It whs Cutstono now who flushed,
but his eyes did not waver from the
vision thnt was before them a vision
rich nnd broad and so wonderful ns
to make the editorial olllco seem n
thing of fragrance and flowers nnd
"I nm on my way to those experi
ences," ho said softly, "and I nm n
fairly swift runner."..

NEW YORKERS HONOR POET.
Cottage Where Edgar Allan Poe Lived
and Dreamed Has Been Preserved
Edgnr Allan Poe Is America's best
beloved writer abroad, according to
Vicente Blasco Ihnncz, the fnmbus
Spanish novelist. The author's great
est afternoon In America wns the one
set nslde for a quiet visit to tho humble
and tragic homo of the author of "The
Raven" nnd "The Cnsk of Amontilla
do." Poe's cottngo Is a quaint little one
story frame house, painted white, on
the Grand Concourso on tho upper
fringe of the city. The ground around
It has been dedicated and Is known ns
Poe park. Tho, building Is Just tho
same as It was when Poo lived there
in company with his fantastic satans
and ethereal sweethearts.
A party of five went with Ibanez. It
was Just dark when they arrived at tho
Poe home. The ulr wns chilly nnd dank,
ns Poo would have said. Six or soven
candles spluttered feebly against tho
walls nnd threw fantastic shadows Into
the small bedroom where, so history
hath It, the author of "Tho Rnvcn"had
spent so many nights of anguish nnd
unearthly vision. :
It Is strange but there nrc very few
New Yorkers who know where Poo
llvoil nnil tlinv tin vn nnvnr cnmi tliannrlr
or the little tragic cottage. Tho only
Indication thnt It was tho homo of tho '
genius of the odd Is the little black '
raven pnlnted In tho front.
There Is n little porch, much like a
modern doll-house porch. At night Poo
used to sit out there nlono with tho
stars, smoking and dreaming. Then ho
wns In tho wilderness, for Nnv York
wns many miles away. Off to his right
was tho Hudson nnd the Jersey const.
Around about him were all sorts of
night cries. Ho loved the mysterious
walls, the ghostly shadows that creep
about at night. Many ambitious
writers go there at night now to drink
in tho mental pictures that came to
Poe hut Instead nro howls of the
Bronx kiddles, the honk ot the auto,
tho grind of car wheels and all the com
plex noises of a congested center.
British Convict System.
The largest British convict prison la
Dartmoor, writes T. C. Bridges In tho
New Illustrated, and here the number
of prisoners may rise at times to na
many ns 1,200. At Dartmoor the build
ings have nil been constructed by con
vict labor, the gas Is made by them,
i lie cooking done by them, while con-
lets grow the vegetables, care for tho
iio stock and cultivate the farm. They
inike. mend and wash nil the clothes,
lt -tli for themselves nnd for thoir
warders; they make and mend their
li.mts, while all the utensils used In tho
et'ls tho tin cups, dishes and Jugs
a iv made on tho spot.
Production of Turpentine.
Tills country supplies practically
hal' of the terpentine and rosin used
In tho world. Tn tho five years 1910-15
It p.odueed 31,800,000 gallons of tho
former and 3,700,000 barrels of tho
latter. In 1010 tho value of tho tur
pentine nnd rosin exported was $35,-93.r,0(M).
