The Richmond Palladium, Sunday, January 20, 1907.
Page Five. There arc few men, fewer women, who do not enjoy a thor oughly good short story. To gratify this almost universal taste ar rangements have been made by this paper to secure for its readers a series of original stories of a character superior to any that have hitherto appeared in any newspaper, and that the highest class maga zines cannot hope to surpass. This is an idea that is sure to prove to our readers as pleasing as it is new. The stories will be published weekly, and each will be complete. They will be illustrated with pictures of a class it has always been deemed impossible for newspapers to attempt to present first, because of the great expense of obtaining original illustrations from artists of the highest rank; and, next, because of the mechanical difficulties that prevented the proper presentation of such illustra tions in the pages of a newspaper. Both those obstacles have been overcome, and thus this new newspaper idea has been made possible. This series will be made up of contributions from the pens of the men and women who have won foremost place among the writers of the short story a department of literary art in which America has always held enviable prominence. They are the writers whose names hold leading place on the contents lists of the leading maga zines of the country, the writers who are breathing fresh life and vigor into our literature and whose combined efforts are raising it to higher and higher levels, both in conception and in technical perfection of execution. They are the young writers, the writers of the day who portray the life of the day, and whose lines of inter esting, absorbing fiction are hewn closer to the truth than are the ijrier lines of those who profess to write only of facts. Among the writers from whom stories have already been ob tained for this series is O. Henry, whose versatile pen has won fame throughout the land for its humor and its pathos, for its adventurous farce and its delicate touch when dealing with the gravest of sub jects, and always, always for its truthfully realistic presentation of the life amid which we move to-day. Leo Crane, with his knowledge gained by stern experience of the wild, frozen lands of the Northwest, writes of the Argonauts of today and of the tragic incidents into which they are led in their search for gold. Hugh O. Pentecost, divine, lawyer, journalist, sociologist and philosopher, who has always had in view the study of humanity, writes, with fiction as his medium, of life as he has found it, of the passions that mould and control life. And "John Oliver Hobbes," Mrs. Craigie, whose death caused mourning on both sides of the Atlantic among the many thousands who had learned to love her through her stories, will still speak to those friends through stories that will appear in this series, stories that have never yet been published. But to continue the list of authors who contribute to the series would require extended space. To mention but a few, there arc Charles Battell Loomis, a prince in the kingdom of humor; Eugene Wood, Hugh Pendexter, Owen Oliver, Grace McGowan Cook, Margaret Foster, Walter Hackett, Ellen M. Palmer, Annie Hamil ton Donnell, Henry Irving Dodge, Jeannette Cooper, Zona Gale, Theodosia I. Garrison. The mere reading of the names proves that mental food for every taste will be given, be that taste inclined to smiling humor, to laughing farce, to psychological study of mind and heart, to stirring incident or tragic adventure. Every phase of life will be touched upon and illumined with fiction that is truer than fact can ever hope to be. And in securing artists to illustrate the stories there has beer, .kept in view more than the mere selection of brush or pencil that has givea proof of high artistic conception and skilled technique of execution. There has been kept ever in mind the necessity of so mating pen and pencil that there would be commingling of spirit, and that the illustration presented to the eye of the reader, while pleasing with its technical truth and beauty, would also con vey to the mind the spirit of the scenes and characters portrayed. In this twofold direction no newspaper has ever before attempted to venture. As a consequence, there will be found a diversity of manner an of touch in the illustrations corresponding to that distinguishing the stories they illustrate. Among the artists who will illustrate the stories are fA Meth fesscl, who has extended the walls of his studio so that it embraces all out-doors, and whose models are found on every highway and every byway; Ike Morgan, whose illustrations are sought for by the leading magazines of the country; Walter Whitehead, who in furnishing illustrations for this scries has had recourse to. brush and oil and canvas to enable him to do justice to his subject; Jerome Uhl, who is noted for his realistic portrayal of the Chinaman in every phase of the life he lives apart, in the tortuous dens to which the Caucasian seldom gains entrance; and in their company will work many other artists of equal skill and fame. Thus our readers may well look forward with pleasurable an ticipation to the inauguration of this new newspaper idea, , Social and Personal Mention Calendar for the Week. Monday.

It used to be considered that only urinary and bladder troubles were to be traced to the kidneys, but now modern science proves that nearlv all diseases have their beginning in the disorder of these most important organs. The kidneys filter and purify the blood that is their work. Therefore, when your kidneysare weak cr out of order, you can understand how quickly yoiir entire body is atTected and how every crgan seems to fail to do its duty. If you are sick or " feel badly," begin taking the great kidney remedy, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, because as soon a your kidneys are well they will help all the other organs to health. A trial will convince anyone. If you are sick you can make no mis take by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild and the extraordinary efTect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, "the great kidney remedy, is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures of the most distressing cases, and is sold on its merits by all druggists in fifty-cent and one-dollar size lttles. You may have a sample bottle Horn of Swamo-Roct. by mail free, also a pamphlet telling you how to find out if you have kidney or bladder trouble. Mention this paper when writing to Dr. Kilmer & Co..
