THE HOME NEWSPAPER IS
LOVED BY IT’S READERS
A glance into waste paper baskets
discloses many hand bills and circulars
and staffers. But did you ever notice
the home town paper in the waste
basket? Hardly. Short sighted mer
chants might well ponder this fact.
Many devices have been brought for
ward in the interest of better adver
tising but nothing has yet been dis
covered to equal the columns of the
home town newspaper that is paid for
and read by its readers.

“Yes, there’s been some changes in
Freeport, inarm, since you went away.
Quite a few of us old folks gone, I
guess. My cottage? Why* yes, there
has been some changes, too. Them pic
tures? Now, I’m glad you noticed them.
You remember Ellen?
“Why, it's queer about Ellen. You
know, when she took that craze to go
to the city and be a painter, nobody
thought very much about it. But, you
see, Will Calder had jilted her—so they
said, and I guess it's true—after her
fulher only left her live hundred dol
lars Instead of the thousands we all
thought old Mr. Nash was worth.
“Well, she must of been gone nine or
ten years, I guess, and here she comes
back—bought the old house, now—and
she 'pears to be a famous painter,
though none of us knew it. Making
her fifteen thousand a year, they say.
Yes, Freeport’s certainly proud of her
“Oh, them pictures? Why, she paint
ed them for me. Charge? Nothing.
Pretty, ain’t they? And she’s painted
for a lot of the folks, but as for her
old flame, Will Calder—why, say, she’s
stacked his house up with the paint
ings she’s done for him. Pretty
scenes! I don’t wonder she’s succeed
I was looking In wonder at the pic
tures, for, of all the daubs I had ever
seen, these were the limit. Broad,
flaring bands of color, conventional
sweet things, girls’ faces and country,
scenes—Just what would appeal to the
If these were samples of Ellen
Nash’s work, then Ellen Nash’s story
that she was a famous painter was a
lie, transparent to the person with the
smallest knowledge of art.
t walked up the hlU to Will Calder’s
place. Will was at work, but his wife
remembered me and showed me over'
the house with pride. The living room!
was full of Ellen’s paintings. j
“Ain’t they pretty?" said Mrs. Cal-,
der. “I do think it was sweet of het
doing all these for us—and not a cent,!
mind you—Jest because she and Wifl
used to be friends.”
She giggled, and It was clear that
she meant that they had been some
thing more than friends.
But If Mrs. Thompson’s paintings
had been bad, these were positively
vile—the vilest daubs that I had ever
seen. Perhaps the cheapest of cheap
department stores might have ven
tured to offer them at a knock-down
price of a dollar ninety-eight, but I
Can’t you see the things? The livid
blues and browns, the splotches of
paint, the red lips and the cream-col
ored cheeks of the girls? The cattle
browsing pastorally In the greenest
of green grass? It hurt me, for I r»
membered Ellen, and I was *n my way
to see her.
I stopped at the old place. It wop
Ellen herself who opened the door to
me. She was so pleaded to see me, ana
r w«s as pleased to see her. She had
grown refined, splrltuelle. I marveled
more and more that such a girl could
have painted those awful things.
I marveled more—I gasped when I
saw the pictures on Ellen’s walls. I
recognized two of these as the work
of the young woman painter, Miriam
Keith, who had been the rage of the
season. It was evident that Ellen ap
preciated good pictures. Then how, In
heaven’s name? . . .
It was Ellen who opened the sub
ject, after I had told her that I had
called on Mrs. Thompson and Will.
“I suppose you are wfondering about
the paintings?" she asked, slowly.
"Well—yes,” I ventured.
“I," said Ellen, “am Miriam Keith.”
I sat gasping at her like a strand^
“You see, when I went to New York
I chose to take another name. I want
ed nothing to remind me of this hate
ful place. I was an unsophisticated
girl. I—I succeeded at last. Then,
when I was rich, I felt the longing for
a country place, and I bought the old
house. Here I shall remain Ellen
Nash. In New York I nm Miriam
Keith. Now—do you understand?’’
She said no more, but suddenly I did
understand. I saw the scorn and the
revenge of the artist upon the people
who had gossiped about her, lied about
her. These pictures were on their
own level, and she had taken a clever
and such a subtle revenge upon them!
And upon Will Calder, most of all,
filling up his house with those trashy
daubs. I wondered whether there hall
been anything In that story about
them? Certainly the man could he
nothing to her now.
In a way I thought it was a revenge
upon Ellen’s own youth.
Winds Watch by Walking.
A Californian possesses the only
watch in the world that winds Itself.
He bought It years ago In the East,
and It was so old then that he could
not ascertain when It was made. It
was represented as a square French
timepiece, and It Is so arranged that
a lever oscillates with every footstep
the owner takes, thus beeping the
spring tightened. It Is contended that
It Is the only watch known that winds
Itself by tne Jar occasioned In walk
It k«$P9 accurate time despite Its
peculiarities of Cohstrucllon, and it
has survived pevgfal good cases. At
present it is encased In gold. A key
Is provided for emergencies, so that If
the owner should be 111 or be obliged
to refrain from walking for several
days, the^timeplece can be wound.
Another Use for X-Ray.
The French investigators, who are
among the most ingenious, have dis
covered that the X-ray furnishes a
very ready means to detect stony Im
purities in coal. Now, carbon Is very
transparent to the Roentgen rays,
while slllcia Is opaque to them. Con
sequently the silicates, which form
slag when coal Is burned, can be seen
like a skeleton when the shadow of
the coal is projected upon a florescent
screen. It Is reported that this meth
od is much in vogue in France.—
“I was reading in the paper last
night,” remarked CJnbe Olgger.v, “t! at
over there in Rooshy you cun heg a
divorce as easy as buying a sack of
peanuts, and then get married in live
minutes, if you want to.”
‘‘Well, I’ll tell you," replied Oap
Johnson of Rumpus Ridge. “Judging
from the pictures I’ve seed of them
there Rooshian ladies, if I got a di
vorce from one of ’em I shore wouldn’t
want to marry another’n for sev'rnl
days,”—Kansas City Star.
In the recent drive to raise money
for the Radcllffe endowment fund an
alumna of that college employed two
small boys to sell soap. “Why are you
selling the soap?” Inquired a lady at
a house on Johnnie’s beat. “To raise
$3,000,000 for Radcllffe,” was the
prompt reply. “Three mollion dollars!”
the lady exclaimed, amused at the
youngster’s seriousness. “And are you
going to raise it all by yourself?” “No,
ma’am,” said Johnnie, "there's another
little boy helping me.”
Yes, Quite Fair!
According to the Ne.v York Morning
Telegraph, Mr. Jolm Barrymore, stroll
ing aimlessly through the Plaza reo- nt
ly, was encountered by an old friend.
"Why, Jack,!” exclaimed the old friend.
"It’s been such a long time since I’ve
seen you. IIow are you, anyway?”
Mr. Barrymore announced that he was
perfectly splendid, or something to the
same effect. “But look here! Aren’t
you opening In ‘Hamlet’ tonight? What
about it?” "Well,” he remarked in a
noncommittal tone, “it’s a good part.”

In the country newspaper, sensations, scandals—the recording
of human misery—is almost taboo. At least it certainly is sec
