is anything but conventional.

FOIXD THEIR HOWE C5HAITT,
Kemp says that when he arrived
in Arden to visit the Sinclair he
found their home nnhappy. Upton
wanted a divorce, he says, and by
hla constant nagging was driving his
wife nearly insane. Upton showed
little concern ss to the friendship be
tween Mrs. Sinclair and Harry
Kemp, the latter says.
When Harry Kemp went to Arden
last summer he had never bad asso

Upton Sinclair and his "soul states."
"You first must know something
of Upton," he said. "He is a queei
mixture of good and bad. He is a
radical when it suits his ends to be
a radical and he is a conservative
when conservative ideas will Justify
whatever course be wants to pur
sue. He has no sense of humor aid
he is always raving about genius.
"He magnifies everything and
worries himself into what he calls a
'soul state.' When he was - in Jai;
down in Arden he thought it was the
worst thing he ever had been in and
be went and had a big 'soul
state' over it, saying it was worse
than Siberian prisons and all that.
"I went down to Arden last July
upon Iptons invitation. I never
had had any correspondence with
Mrs. Sinclair; we never had been
more than formally friendly.
MADE HER LIVE IX TEXT.
"When I got there I found the
Sinclair home broken up. Upton had
told Meta he wanted a divorce and
be had driven her nearly wild. He
would insist on her doing everything
he did made her diet and live in a
tent. He showed her no affection
Whenever she would want . him to
carry in a bucket of coal he would
do it, but would yell that was a fine
occupation for a genius.
"Upton, you know, preached free
love. In his 'Love Pilgrimage.' he ty
put forth his Ideas.
"Meta was unhappy and Upton
was so excited about his genius all
the time that nobody would have
much to do with him. ' Meta and 1
began to read poetry and take walks
together. Meta and I were having
i grand time. We were congenial

Upton was becoming, sort of funny
and I went to him and said:
' 'Upton, am I paying too much
attention to Meta?'
" "No he said, 'go ahead and If
you can, make her happy."
"Well, I thought perhaps I ought
to go, but I remembered the dec
trlnes that Upton had preached and
how he had treated Meta and and
I loved her. So I remained.
"Then Upton came to me and
wanted me to promise that I would
play square. He didn't know."
