A Story Showing How t
a Story Came to
By EMMA DLAKE
"What's this. Cartwrlgbt?" nsked Mr
Chandler, managing partner of the
flrra of Chnndler Bros., publishers.
"This manuscript comes from Hay
thorn Hayes. I didn't understand
when he went away tbnt he had an
unpublished novel Qnlsbed."
"Nor 1. sir Nevertheless this mnnn
script bus hecn sent us by express,
aud a letter has come by mall with
regard to It."
Mr. Cnrtwright handed his employer
a type written letter, which read as
Messrs. Chandler Bros.:
Dear Slrs-()n the eve nf my departure I
find a manuscript, which I send you by
express. It was written some time ago
and laid aside until I should have made a
market for It by other work more likely to
be accepted by a wider though perhaps
lower grade of readers. I have no time to
enter further Into particulars. Perhaps
you will use It during ray absence. Very
truly yours. H. '
Mr. Chnudler read the letter and
"Do you thluk there Is anything
wrong about It?" asked Cartwright
"l don't know that there Is. If on
either the manuscript or the letter
there was n scrap of Uayes' writing 1
would like It better. However, you
may have the story rend and If there
Is a marked difference between Its
style and that of his other works let
The reader reported that there was
a considerable difference between the
style of "The Aeronaut" and that of
Mr. Hayes' other works. There was a
crudity In It that indicated he had
written It before he hud had much
Chandler Bro. were In a quandary.
They bad published two novels for
Haytborn Hayes under his Initials, "H.
H" with very good success. They had
advised him to print his full name on
the title page, and be bad Ignored tbeir
advice to his sorrow, for with success
came a desire to be known us a suc
cessful author. But since "H. H." was
well known to the public and Haytborn
Hayes was uot. a novel by the latter
would not reap the benefit of the ad
vertising of one by the former. He
was therefore obliged to continue to
publish under his initials.
"There's uo hope of reaching Hayes,"
said the head of the publishing firm.
"He has gone up the Amazon river to
find the legendary amazon women,
who he believes have or have had a
real existence, with a view to writing
a story about them. If we don't pub
lish this "Aeronaut" we'll doubtless of
fend him, and when be returns some
rival firm will get bis Amazon novel.
Put the book in press and advertise
largely that It Is forthcoming. We
must make sure of the story be Is aft
er, and the best way to do so is to put
blm under obligations to us by boom
ing this 'Aeronaut' story."
"The Aeronaut" was offered to the
publishers late In the autumn and was
rushed through for the spring trade. A
paragraph in a literary Journal bad an
nounced Mr. Hayes' departure with a
view to getting material for a unique
novel, and his publishers occasionally
Jogged the memory of the public by an
Item as to tbe singular possibilities of
such a theme.
However, when "The Aeronaut" ap
peared It very soon became manifest
that It must stand oj Its own merits.
Being unlike Mr Hayes- other works.
it did not appeal especially to bis ad
mirers. For soino time It looked as
though it would be a failure. Those
dealers who had bought copies with
the privilege of returning those that
were, unsold began to send them In by
"Never mind," said Mr. Chandler,
"we'll make It all up on the Amazon
But one, day there came a call for
more copies of "The Aeronaut" by a
prominent dealer, which was followed
by new orders from other booksellers.
There was evidently a call for tbe,
work on the part of tbe public. It was
not long before the fact was recog
nized that tbe sale of the book bad
taken a start. Tbe start became a de
mand and tbe demand became a clamor
from tbe dealers to supply tbe public.
The sale of "The Aeronaut" far sur
passed that of any of Mr. Hayes' other
works and Increased bis reputation
Chandler Bros, thought It a good op
portunity to make advertising capital
of the fact that no one knew who "EL
H." was. They therefore had an tem

be was a jiromlnent playwright named
Henry Harbeson. Mr. Harbeson de
Died tbe change. Another Item named
another man. and it was not long be
fore half a dozen prominent persons
were trying to put off an honor that
did not belong to tbem. Chandler
Bros, chuckled and refused positively
to give the name of tbe real author.
Meanwhile Haytborn Hayes was
hunting for the amazons In tbe Interior
of South America. Nothing came from
blm for a year, at tbe end of wblcb
time be reappeared at the mouth of
the river from the Amazonas province
of Brazil and reported thnt be bad
found traces of the amazon women.
But be would give ' no particulars.
Chandler Bros, made as mncb of the
news as possible 'and eagerly looked
for bis return to bis borne.
One morning be appeared, bronsed
by the equatorial sun. In the office ol
"Well, Hayes." wild Mr. Chandler
when the greetings were over. "we'v

The two Chaudler brqthers and the
Junior purtuer. who were standing
about smiling heulguly upon tbe fn
tuous author, suddenly lowered the cor
ners of their mouths aud looked at
"Nousense. old fellow." said Chan
dler senior "Your modesty has al
ways stood In your way. You've writ
ten the biggest thing of the year I
hope you're not going to deny It."
Nevertheless Mr. Hayes maintained
his denial and finally got the stor
of bow the manuscript came to tin1
firm, Its doubts about the tdentlt
of the author and other information
He called for a copy of the hook, took
It home with hltn and did not pause
after beginning till be had finished It
The next day he returned to the puti
llshlng house, was closeted with the
head of the firm and said:
"Mr. Chandler. It does not retted
much credit on your house that you
did not realize on readlug this work
that 1 hnd not the nblllty to write It.
I haven't either the Imagination or the
Ingenuity Moreover, you should have
known that It was not wrltteu ny a
man and that it was written by a wo
man. Some one endeavored to get It
through by using my Initials aud sue
reeded, with a result far above any
thing I am capable of attaining But
what surprises me is that whoevei
the impostor may be she has not at
tempted to reap tbe pecuniary reward
arising through her Imposture."
"Wult." replied Mr. Chandler. "That
will i-ou'.e In time.'' '
After a prolonged Interview Mr
Hayes departed, huvlng obtalued a
promise that If the Impostor were dls
covered be should be notified before
any action In the premises was taken
A mouth later the autbor received a
telephone message that If be would
call at the office of Chandler Bros, he
would hear something of the impos
ture that bad been practiced on blm
and on the firm. Uu arrival Mr
Chaudler said to blm:
"A lady named Helen Herbert some
lime ago published through us a little
book of poems, ou which we lost some
money Siuce then we have heard
nothing from her till this morning
when we received this note."
He handed the note to Mr. Hayes,
Messrs Chandler Bros.:

Mr. Hayes looked up at Mr Chandler
and met that gentleman's eyes Hzed
on him with u singular expression.
"This beats nu.v theme I ever work-

"It's the old story of truth

Jules Verne was a scientific man,
and many regard his fiction stories of
submarine and aerial Ulght which at
tho time they wore published seemed
wild dreams as it serious prediction of
what ho believed would bo accom

live to Bee the submurine un ttcceTitcil

were well advanced toward success
before he died. There remains his
"Trip to the Moon,"' which seems abso
lutely Impossible of accomplishment
Nevertheless, thero are scientific men
who dare to reach out Into space and
chart a pathway to other worlds.
One of these, M. Ernest Archdeacon,

Static' electricity seems to bo every
where. We aro quite surrounded by it
on all sides. It Is In the earth, the air,
in our clothes, on the books, the rug
and the walls. t sticks tbe papers to
gether on the desk. It attracts feath
ers and bits of lint to metal nnd glass.
It leaps from our fingers when we
touch metal objects. Now and then a
crackling noise will be beard when the
coat Is being taken off. A woolen skirt
or sweater drawn quickly over the
head will produce crackling sparks. By
shuffling the dry feet over the carpet
a considerable spark can be obtained
from the fingers.
Bear In mind that static electricity
Is not tho kind that is used to light the
electric lamps In the house. Very lit
tle work has ever been found for static
electricity. It Is a worthless vagabond
delighting In mad pranks. In tbe form
of lightning It dashes down from the
sky, scaring honest folk nearly to
death, often doing considerable dam
age. It frequently visits the press room
in large priutlng establishments and
sticks the sheets of paper together un
til the presses have to be stopped. It
' gathers on the yarns nnd threads In
, textile mills, knotting and tangling
tbem, aud Is always in mischief.
It Is easy enough to nrove the nres-
J enco of static electricity. Rub a bit of
' amber, glass, bard rubber or sealing
i wax with a silk banderchlef or a
piece of woolen cloth, and It will at
tract bits of paper and small particles
of metal. When we stroke tbo cat's
back this static electricity collects very
rapidly. It snaps and crackles and
(lashes as It discharges between our
fingers and the animal's fur. This dis
play of static electricity Is nothing
more or less than a miniature thunder
shower without the rain. From Har

Quality of Humor.
A famous definition of tbe quality of
humor is this: "For this humor is an
adjunct divjne: it is a value of life; it
makC3 for greater things than clean
laughter from the lungs. It is the root
of toleranre. the proof of patience; it
suffers long and is kind; serves to
tune each little life harmony with the
world harmony about It; keeps the
heart of man sweet, bis soul modest.
And at the end, when the light thick
ens and the mesh grows tight, humor
can shape tbe sufferlrfg vigils of the
sleepless, enn soften pain, can brighten
the ashy road to death."
