HOW LAWSON SCRATCHES.

Brown Paper, Publixher says.

This Is the tribute of John Adams
Thayer, one of the publishers of Every
body's Magazine, in which Lawson's
articles on "Frenzied Finance" ap
jpeared, says the Kansas City Times.
Mr. Thayer wasl recently at the Union
depot in Kansas City, Mo., in the pri
vate car of 0. V, Wilder, part owner
of Everybody's Magazine. They and
their famiies were returning from
Riverside, Cll., to New York.
"Lawson li one of the most remarka
ble men I ever met," said Mr. '.haver.
"He is versatile and a dynamo of en
ergy. You would be amused to see the
copy as it is prepared by him for 'Fren
sled Finance.' It is scratched and
scribbled on brown paper, and only
two persons in the world can read it,
his stenographer and himself. The ste
nographer copies it with a typewriter
before it Is sent to the printer.
"The writing of 'Frenzied Finance' IF;
but arn incident in Mr. Lawson's daily
work. While preparing an article he
spends about an hour a day on it. IlIe
writes rapidly. One day I went from
New York to Boston to talk with Mr.
Lawson about some advertising that
he was to place in the daily newspa
pers of the country. The deal involved
thousands of dollars, and he was to
prepare tie copy. I waited three days
tefore I got an opportunity to see him.
And then he Raid:
." 'I have ten minutes. At 5 I must
go to ride with Mrs. Lawson.'
"In that time he scribbled the 'copy'
that was to be used in a page adver
tisement to cost thousands of dollars."

Furs and Woolens.
Before putting away fur and woolen
garments they should be thoroughly
cleaned and repaired. White fur can
be cleaned by' rubbing into it sawdlust

furs with a sponge dipped in gasoline.
Be careful riot to use the gasoline near
a fire or flame. After furs have been
cleaned and aired sew them up in cot

coats and cloaks can be kept from
moths to the same manner by sewing
them into full length cotton bags and
suspending them from hangers jji the
