Tho story of how he came to adopt

esque. For some time he had picked
up a precarlou1 livelihood by doing
"odd Jobs," Including such profile oc
cupations as that of bootblack and
casual porter on the Qtiul Marseilles.
One day he was engaged by a gentle
mnn to carry to tho railway station a
heavy trunk. Arrived nt the station,
there was nn instant mutual recogni
tion. They were old college chums.
"What are you doing here?" nsked bin
friend. "Carrying your trunk, I be

this?" "nccause I must." "Where
do you live?" "Come and see," re
Tho future dramatist took his friend
to his dwelling a miserable room In
an nttlc in the poorest quarter of the
town. Upon the. table lay scattered
heaps of mannscrlpts Jean's Incur

the more prosaic duties of the day
were over. Looking through them, hl9
friend was astounded at their quality.
"Why do you carry trunks and blncken
boots when you can do work like
this?" he asked. IUchephi had never
given the matter a thought. He had
never deemed these products of Idh
hours worthy of publication. Pub

"but I'll havo him hooked before long
