APPLES WERE KIPE By DOROTHY DOUGLAS (, 1S20. by McCture Newspaper Syndicate.) Evelyn roamed aimlessly, but with exceeding enjoyment, through tho lovely Loug Island road. She hoped her destination would bo tho Nassau station and thence by train back to tho city, but Evolyn's country Jaunts did not always lend her In tho direc tion sho fancied sho was going. On this particular Saturday after noon In Into September she was any where but near tho Nassau station. Evelyn wns not, however, awaro of this fact nor of anything savo tho extreme freshness of the air and the Joy of being away from the small of ilce on Broadway, where she read numerous stories by authors and au thors In the inuklng. Each Saturday, as It rolled along In tho summer time, found her fnr from Broadway and sometimes too far In the heart of the country for her own safety. On more than one occasion she had been forced by the similes of night to beg n night's lodging In the nearest farmhouse. Evelyn always reserved the time be tween Saturday afternoon and Mon day morning for herself. During the week sho whs, as an editor, at the beck and call of anyone who chanced Into tho ofllce, nnd so every week-end sho gave to her own company and took her tramps alone. It was thus that sho managed to slip Into her of fice chair Monday mornings with n clear vision nnd eyes unwearied and cheeks fresh with color of new life. "You great big beautiful sun," she whimsically remarked to the crimson ball that was slowly climbing down behind tho trees; you seem to have Just dashed across tiio sky today, nnd yet I suppose you have really taken your leisure." Evelyn heaved n sIrIi, for this was Sunday evening nnd the next morning would have to see her at her desk heaped high with manu scripts. She wns swinging past an orchard In which the apples were red nnd ripe and casting their fruity fragrance In to her hungry senses. Evelyn couldn't remember having wonted anything In the way of food ns much as sho wanted some of those rosy apples. Desire harnessed to physical ability tempted her to leap over the fence and pilfer her choice from the orchard Just as any small, Hungry boy would do, but conscience Dade her proceed farther and perhaps secure her apples honestly from a fnrm hand. Evelyn was rewarded for her hon orable Intentions by seeing u sign ja bit farther on which stated that ap ples were for sale, nnd she pranced Joyfully through a dilapidated path way overhung with grap vines to a shockingly unkempt but curiously chnrmlng cottnge. She knocked In vnln on the paint less door and finally win nn unlady like vehemence. However, there wns no response, nnd Evelyn's desire for apples only Increased with tho diffi culty of procuring some. Discouraged, she started away, but as she passed the odorous orchard, she decided to help ncrself and leave payment for what sho took. Sho selected 3?lx beauties, pondered a moment as to thelr-selllng price nnd took u fiO-ecnt piece from her purse, rummaged among notes, powder puffs nnd numerous feminine appurtenances until she discovered an errant hnnd kerchlef. Into this she put hor money, and with a short bit of string secured It to tho branch or nn apple tree one that would catch tho eye of the fanner when he should return to his ramshackle cottage. Munching contentedly at an apple, Evelyn continued her way along the rond, and In tho course of time ar rived back In the city nnd at her small, apartment, the rent of which had been raised to a schocklng height only the day before. It was during tho month of Novem berEvelyn remembered well the day that she received n splendid story from ono of the newer writers. "Ho may hu,ve been struggling for years nnd years," thought Evelyn, "but his name Is only creeping about magazine circles now." Sho hud not forgotten the Incident of the apples, because her brain sel dom erased any of litr wonderful etchings of country rambles. They were all very precious to her and this iitory coming from the pen of a vivid writer gave Evelyn a fierce hunger for the days of n summer past. She knew, of course, that the In cident of the story was Just one of the dainty accessories to a good story that finding of (If ly cents In n hnnd kerchief tied to the branch of a tree. It had been brought Into the story os one of the quaint experiences of one who dwelt on the broad country road. So unusual wos the coincidence of tlant Idle moment of her own hnvlng drifted Into this stranger's story and that very story having come Into her own edltorlnl hands that Evelyn was tempted to carry on the other side of the tale. She wanted to dash Into a tux!, tako a truln for Glen Cove and the rnmshnckle cottage, find the young author seated boforo n flro with his pipo In his mouth dreaming of more stories, fall madly In love with him and live hcfpy ever after. , Instend of that Evelyn dictated a most editorial letter to John Cutstono telling him that his story was charm ing and offering him $150 for it. She added also that she would bo Inter ested In mealing him should he be In town In tho near future. So John Cutstone wns In town In tho nr future. In fact, ho took the first train out of Glen Covo nftor he hnd motored down to the village post ofllce and got his letter from Evelyn Monroe, editor of the "Bonst." It wbh, as always happens In the best of fiction, n case of almost ln stantani-ous lovt at toast, tho Instant Evelyn found hor band in that ot John Cutstono sho had n wondorful feeling of contentment John know Unit with Evelyn's eyes looking Into his ho had found something ho thought only ex isted In romantic fiction. "Your cottage Is painfully In need of paint," waa tho editor's stupid re mark. "I will paint it next spring," John promised, "I wns too busy gardening and writing all these stories that have been bringing mo In big checks to do any dolling up around the place." Had his eyes been nnywhoro hut fixed Btcndlly on her face John would hnvo turned In surprise to nsk: "And how do' you know anything about my shack?" "I happen to have boon the poor city worker who purchased tho ap ples and left my best handkerchief "By Jove, nol I have speculated n hundred times beside my tiro ns to tho Identity of that quaint wanderer, but never for a moment expected " A wonderful blush springing Into tho editor's checks reminded Cutstono Just In time-, that he hnd only three minutes before met Evelyn Monroe, and that eveu In the best of fiction tho hero Isn't quite likely to propose on, so short an acquaintance "So fam ous a person," ho tactfully finished and, watched the blush recedo unwill ingly. "You arc to bo the famous one," Evelyn said with sweetly serious eyes fixed on the author; "your touch Is very, very charming. A rich and broad experience In life ns you go nlong year by year should produce In you the power to become a writer of the highest order." It whs Cutstono now who flushed, but his eyes did not waver from the vision thnt was before them a vision rich nnd broad and so wonderful ns to make the editorial olllco seem n thing of fragrance and flowers nnd blue skies. "I nm on my way to those experi ences," ho said softly, "and I nm n fairly swift runner.".. I To whom aro you going to soil your Hny and Grain?

Cottage Where Edgar Allan Poe Lived and Dreamed Has Been Preserved for Posterity. Edgnr Allan Poe Is America's best beloved writer abroad, according to Vicente Blasco Ihnncz, the fnmbus Spanish novelist. The author's great est afternoon In America wns the one set nslde for a quiet visit to tho humble and tragic homo of the author of "The Raven" nnd "The Cnsk of Amontilla do." Poe's cottngo Is a quaint little one story frame house, painted white, on the Grand Concourso on tho upper fringe of the city. The ground around It has been dedicated and Is known ns Poe park. Tho, building Is Just tho same as It was when Poo lived there in company with his fantastic satans and ethereal sweethearts. A party of five went with Ibanez. It was Just dark when they arrived at tho Poe home. The ulr wns chilly nnd dank, ns Poo would have said. Six or soven candles spluttered feebly against tho walls nnd threw fantastic shadows Into the small bedroom where, so history hath It, the author of "Tho Rnvcn"had spent so many nights of anguish nnd unearthly vision. : It Is strange but there nrc very few New Yorkers who know where Poo llvoil nnil tlinv tin vn nnvnr cnmi tliannrlr or the little tragic cottage. Tho only Indication thnt It was tho homo of tho ' genius of the odd Is the little black ' raven pnlnted In tho front. There Is n little porch, much like a modern doll-house porch. At night Poo used to sit out there nlono with tho stars, smoking and dreaming. Then ho wns In tho wilderness, for Nnv York wns many miles away. Off to his right was tho Hudson nnd the Jersey const. Around about him were all sorts of night cries. Ho loved the mysterious walls, the ghostly shadows that creep about at night. Many ambitious writers go there at night now to drink in tho mental pictures that came to Poe hut Instead nro howls of the Bronx kiddles, the honk ot the auto, tho grind of car wheels and all the com plex noises of a congested center.
