"I don't see the reason," objected
"We have been writing together
very successfully for several weeks,"
she explained. "But we have reached
a point in our work where each one

'Yesterday the Arcade asked me to
furnish them a daily story. These
stories and my work will take all my

Ford's brows drew together. "I un

two good reasons; you are so success

we can do better work without the as

The editor was a direct man and a
frank one. "They lack snap and

clever; these are flat. Write as well

I few days later another bundle of
stories was returned to her.
One evening Graham Ford came to

Three months later, in response to
a charmingly worded note, Graham
Ford came to Norma's flat for dinner.
The living-room had been refur

woods and soft colors. Before the

light gown a white apron.
It was a well cooked dinner which
the white-aproned hostess served. Gra

HOW TO PREPARE SPEECHES r
John Bright Considered What it Was I
That He Wished to impress c
Upon His Audience. h
"Don't speak unless you have c
something to say. Don't be tempted
to go on after you have said it," wasn e
the advice of John Bright, the greast 11
orator. His biographer, Mr. R, . B.
O'Brien, says that he took great pains t<
in the preparation of his speeches. He e
thought the subject over night and v
day, and sometimes committed the
peroration and other important pas
sages to memory, although in the
main he trusted to the inspiration of t
the moment- for the words in which u
to clothe his ideas. Writing to a cor- f
respondent in 1888, Bright said: a
"As to modes of preparation for t
speaking, it seems to me that every s
man would readily discover what r
suits him best.
"To speak without preparation, es- o
pecially on great and solemn topics, i
is rashness, and cannot be recomn- f~
mended. When I intend to speak on t
anything that seenms to me important,
I consider wvhat it is that I wish to
impress upon my audience.
"I do not write my facts or my ar- r
guments, but make notes on two or ii
three slips of note paper, giving the e
line of argument, and leaving the ii
words to come at call while I am t
speaking. There are occasionally
short passages which for accuracy I v
may write down as sometimes, almost i
invariably, the concluding words or y
sentences may be written."
Upon one occasIon he gave Mr. (1.
W. E. Russell some hints about speech
"Of course," writes Mr. Russell, "I h
cannot recall verbally what he said. y
but It was like this:
"'You can't prepare your subject o
too thoroughly, but it is easy to over- E
prepare your words. Divide your sub
jects into two or three, no more, y
main sections. For each section pre
pare an "island." By this I mean a il
carefully prepared sentence to clinch a
your argument. Make this the con
clusion of the section and then trust
yourself to swim to the next island.
Keep the best island for the perora- h
tion of the speech, and then at once
sit down.' "
Just Baby's Size.
In a car filled wvith ladies, a 96' e.
pomnd dude sat wedged in tightly. Al o
