But still the bouse affairs would draw her

Mark Twain and Sellers.
How Clemens and Warner Came to
Writ Their Alleged Novel.
The Humorist's Idea of a Herlou Story
With a. Moral.
Mark Twain conceived the idea of
The Gilded Age" when he was Buffer
ing iroin a prolonged fit of the blues,
lie proposed to write a storv with a mor
al, and he told Charles Dudley Warner
that he wanted that moral so plainly put
that he who ran might read. It was hieh
time for the American people to be awak
ened. The American people were awak
ened to the extent of $ 14,000, which Mark
twain and Dudley Warner pocketed in
nix months' time from the sale of the
book. Here the equal divitdon of proflts
-nded, however; for John T. Raymond
nays that he has paid Mark Twain $150,
000 royalty on the play, while it is a se
cret that Dudley Warner sadly tries to
keep that Mark Twain paid him $1,000
for Lis half interest in any dramatiza
tion. The discrepancy is said to have
arisen tecause Warner regarded the book,
when the last sheet was tossed on the
floor still wet with ink, as the most suc
scsHfulpiece of American humor, while
Mark Twain gravely reminded Warner
that any such view of it taken by the
American people would ruin the influ
ence for a letter state of public morals
which it was intended by him to exert.
Warner stuck to his opinion and Mark
to his. Twain was surprised and griev--d
to learn that the public so far agreed
with Warner as to characterize it as an
attempt at humor.
The two men shook hands over it, un
der the bust of Calvin in Mark Twain's
den, and then Warner sailed for Europe
to spend the money the book had brought
him while Mark Twain remained be
hind to negotiate with John T. Raymond.
An intimate friend of Nrth, in an un
guarded moment, revealed the secret of
the way in which the book came to be
written. This is said to have led to a
temporary estrangement from Parson
Joe Twitchell, upon whose shoulders
Mark Twain foisted the "Punch with
care burden, and afterward told about it
in the Atlantic Monthly. An estrange
ment from Parson Twitchell was wide
reaching in its effects, for it resulted in
Mark Twain's absenting himself from
the family pew on Sundays, and stran
gers staying in Hartford overSundav arc
somewhat in the habit of seeking Twitch
ell's church und quietly asking the sex
ton to seat them as near Mark Twain's
pew as possible.
The story the intimate friend tells i's
this: One- evening in the summer of
1874, Dudley Warner and his wife drop
ped in upon Mark Twain, who had been
Kloomily smoking clay pipes in his den
nil the week. Even the cheery Joe
Twitchell had been unable to shake him
from his melancholy.
"If you leok from your den window
to the northeast," the parson would say,
"you can see where Gen. Hawley lives,
and his success ought to encourage you."
"But that makes me think of politics,
and they are a curse."
"Well, look over across the street, and
you can see where Jewell lives. You
know he began life with his shirt sleeves
rolled up and his arms to the ellow in a
tan vat."
"Now, don't ! He rem inds me of mails
and letters, and they are an abomina
tion." "Well, there is Mrs. Harriet Beecher
Stswe's house next door. See what a
name she made after discouragements."
"But slavery is gone now."
"Well, there'8 Dudly Warner's 'Sum
mer in a Garden over there. You can
almost see the puslev from here,"
"That settles it- I'll get Warner here
to-night and bother him about pualey."
bo Warner came around, ana during
the evening spoke of a recent American
novel.
"It's atrocious what bosh is written
for American novels now," Warner said.
"I believe I could write a better novel
myself."
"You ! You writ a novel !" said Mrs.
Warner, und she laughed. "Why, you
can't write anything except about pusley
in your garden."
"Warner is quite right," Mark Twain
drawled out. "I have for a long time
felt that I oould writ a better atory than
any American novelist"
Then it was his wife's turn, and when
he controlled her merriment, site said:
"You write a story! Why, all that
you can do is to write about Jumping
"Let'a write a story, Warner, and show
these women what we can do."
Mark Twain's blues had departed, and
he pulled Warner tip stairs to his den,
lighted a clay pipe, and talked it over as
rapidly aa he can talk about sixty
words to the minute, about half the or
dinary rate.
"Don't let's tell Twitchell until it's
done," Mark Twain suggested, "because
we want to surprise him, you know."
The story was to be highly dramatic,
strictly moral, and to have a point.
Warner suggested that too many novels
uau duwu), anu Aiarg lwain earn- it
woulau't do to have a pointless novel,
and he waa disposed to reprove Warner
when the author of the "(Summer in a
Garden" suggested that Deonle would
take Mark's most serious attempt as de
sign eu to oe tunny.
"mat's just it, Warner. I want to
write something so serious that it can't
dc mistaken for tun."
It being decided that the story should
teach a lesson, the two authors found
themselves brought up short in trying to
decide what the lesson waa to be, and
they prepared to make a night of it, for
getting all about the wives below. War
ner had a dim idea about the evils of
peculation, while Mark Twain thought
something on the errors of religious
teaching of the present day would do,
and he got warm about it
At length Warner said that he once
knew a man who would make a first
rate character for a novel ; and then he
told Mark Twain about Col. Edchol Sel
lers, who had always been Just on the
point of making his millions. .
"That's the thing," said Mark Twain,
"name and all."
Warner protested against the name,
became he was afraid they might hear
from CoL Sellers, but Mark Twain was
stubborn and said that fie character and
name were just the Foundation for a
novel snowing the dangerou effect of
..';. is.-. X ; ..
the tendency to speculate. " So they" de
cided to build a novel unpon Col. Eschol
Sellers. Each was to write a certain
amount every day, meet in Mark Twain's
den at night and fit the ends together,
lay out the work for next day, and talk
it over. Mark Twain was enthusiastic.
He insisted that Col. Sellers would be
recognized as a sad type of the prevail
ing evil, and that people would be bene
fited by the warning. Warner had some
doubt about the people looking at Col
Echol Sellers as portrayed in "The
Gilded Age" in Just thafway.
The manuscript was finished in just a
month from the day on which it had
been begun, and Mark Twain who has a
horror of writing the headings of chap
ters, thought that it would be desirable
to get Dr. J. Hammond Trumbull, the
linguist, sometimes described as the on
ly man who can read Elliott's Indian
Bible in the original, to write the chap
ter headings in some unforgotten lan
guage with unknown alphabets. This
Dr. Trumbull gladly did, and it explains
those queer headings which made more
talk than Col. Sellers did when the book
appeared. Mark Twain has since said
that he was glad one book had been pub
lished which contained something that
even the critics had to admit they did
not understand.
"The Gilded Age" sold rapidly at first,
and Mark Twain assured Warner that
the people were accepting Col. Sellers,
as he had known all along they would,
in all seriousness. But the sale sudden
ly stopped. Mark could not understand
it, until Parson Twitchell told him that
the trouble was that the book was too
serious. The public would accept noth
ing from him that was not funny, and
they had been deceived in this book.
They bought it for fun, and found it a
sad, solemn story, with a moral. Mark
accepted the explanation, but Dudley
Warner's friends say that the book stop
ped selling when the public found out
how bad it was, and Warner privately
admits it. However, the profits to the
authors were $14,000, and would have
been $2,000 more, had not Warner's pre
diction, when Mark Twain proposed to
use Col. ji,scuol seller's name, come true.
Dudley Warner sat in his editorial
chair in the Hartford Courant office fine
day, so the intimat friend says, a few
weeks alter "The Giulea Age" ha;' uii
published. The door opened and .
man with a broad brimmed hat stood on
the threshold. When Warner looked un
and caught the tall man's eye, he felt a
growing sensation ot weakness, and
wished that Mark Twain was there.
The card that the tall man handed him,
as Warner knew without looking at it,
bore the name of Col. Eschol Sellers.
Only a few words passed between them,
and after the interview was over, War
ner hastened to Mark Twain's house.
Money or a suit was Col. Eschol Sellers'
ultimatum.
There was a meeting of lawyers, and
Col. Eschol Sellers lett Hartford $2,000
richer, and with the promise that all fu
ture editions should appear with the
name changed to Col. Beriah Sellers.
llus explains why in a few copies of
..lit. y i.l .1 .
i ne uuiucn Age" me name appears as
Col. Eschol and in all others as Col. Be
riah. In this respect Mark Twain's
prophecy that Col. Eschol Sellers would
be a serious reality was fulfilled.
John T. Raymond did not like Beriah
and substituted Mulberry when he dra-
iiiai izeu me story.
Also, John has a storv of his own to
tell ulxjut the bargain with Mark for the
ngnt to dramatize the storv. When he
buys another play, John says he must
put the pound of flesh in the bond, and
then he won't be ruined when pay time
comes. X. Y. Sun.
Coffee-Tea.
Coffee-tea is something not absolutely"
unheard of, j et certainly quite new to
English nomenclature. IlerrTschudi. in
his work setting forth his travels in South
America and the East, speaks of a bever
age which is prepared by the inhabitants
of the Indian Archipelago, particularly
the Island of Sumatra, and is regarded by
them as one of the necessaries of life.
Fresh cut twigs of the coffee-tree are ex
posed to a slow, clear fire, until the leaves
have turned to a dark brown color. The
latter are then picked from the stalks,
and these again are roasted until the bark,
which is used as well as the leaves, peels
easily from them. Hot water is poured
upon a sutncient quantity of bark and
leaves thus prepared, and. with the admix.
jure of a 1 ittle sugar, the beverage is ready.
This coffee-tea was brought forward for
the first time publicly in Europe, at the
convocation ot naturalists held at Bremen
in 1844, and at the London exhibition,
where some specimens were tried, it was
shown to contain a considerable quantity
otteaine. Yet, although numerous ex.
pertinents have proven the excellence nf
litis beverage, only small quantities of the
riiuieu conee leaves are imported from
Brazil for private use. These leaves
have a very aromatic smell, and with
the right proportions of mixture, the fla
vor ot the extract is very agreeable as
well as peculiar, singularly resembling
the lest Chinese tea and the rarest Mo
cha coffee, at different styles of prepara
tion. Its effect upon the system is like
that produced by tea, only less power
ful. Prices will form the turning point
of its general introduction in the West
ern world. In Sumatra a pound of
roasted coffee leaves costs about 10 cents,
but in Brazil it could be procured at
much less rates, since the method of pre
paring is cheap and easy. Even should
prices, however, approach those of the
real coffee Dr. Tschudi recommends the
coffee-tea for general consumption, not
merely lecause of its cheapness, but for
its pleasant properties. Only one half
me quantity is required for a decoction
that we usually take of the coffee bean,
and there are kinds that could be sold
considerably cheaper than the finer sort
aoove mentioned. When the need of
aromatic beverages and condiments is
so great that 2,500 million pounds of tea,
and 759 million pounds of coff an
nually consumed, not to speak of other
similar substances, there is something in
this fresh resource worth the attention of
oriental ana South American traders.
