While Mr. Scratcherly was digging
the manuscript up from a mass of
papers on the floor, Mr. Boostem took
a fountain pen and a check book from

The light in .the struggling young
author's garret burned low. Outside
the slee and, snow beat against the
window, and the wind howled dis
mally around the gables and among
"Will success never crown my ef
forts," mused the struggling young
author. "I have worked so hard. I
know I have written some good
things. But like the fabled feline
they come back to me. pn this clos
ing evening of the old year I spent my
last penny for stamps to enclose with
my latest poem. I can only wait and
hope. Surely some time or other my
genius will be recognized and the
world ring with "
Just then a knock sounded at tho
door. Springing to his feet the strug
gling young author hastily opened the
portals and ushered within a stranger
muffled to the phin in a chinchilla
"Is this Mr. Scratcherly, the rising
young author?" queried the stranger.
"I am Mr. Scratcherly," modestly re
plied the occupant of. the garret.
"My name is Boostem, and I am
manager of the Aurora Boreusall Mag
azine." "Will you be seated, sir?" said Mr.
"Thank you. I have but a moment
to stay. I called on business. A few
days ago you sent us the-manuscript
of an epic poem on 'Mortality did you
not?" , .
"Yes, sir." ...
"I called to see you about it. It

I crossed the ocean in the great ship,

"Bother tbe old doll!" cried a child
ish voice. "I've got more dolls now
than I want I wanted a pony and
"Alas!" sighed the wonderful doll.
."I am without friends, even in my
beauty and great price."
But far away in another quarter of
the city, high up in a dingy tenement
garret, a childish voice crooned sqft
ly and a pair of shining eyes looked
lovingly at the ragged 4olly nestled
so snugly in a little girl's arms.
"Rockybyo baby in the tree top.
When the wind blows the cradle will
When the bow bends baby will fall,
Down come rockybye baby and all."
"This is home," whispered the
ragged doll, snuggling closer to the
little mother-heart beating so hap
pily." Smothered in costly raiment one
doll was friendless and disdained.
Clad in rags and soiled by the
touch of grimy fingers, one doll was
