In a prayerful attitude you kneel upon the moist earth and make drills for your radishes and onions. She stands by and clucks, holding the seeds while you scratch. And just as the rosy sun is setting in the west and the hori zon is aflame and aflush with iri descent colorings, you drop the seed into the seams, cover it gently with rich, black loam and try to a natural perpendic ular pose. Oh! Ow! How that kink in your back does hurt! And just as the bull-frog In the swamp sounds his first bassoon and the black skaters on the lake begin to fade from sight in the approaching dusk, the bull-pup rushes madly down the terrace after a black cat which lie overtakes in the very vitals of your jradlsh bed! When the pow-wow has subsided, you mend the havoc and slap the bed fently with a wet board. Then you •'•go into the house and calculate how many radishes can be raised from five cents worth of Beeds. Nest morning you get up early and go down to the garden. No, the rad ishes are not tip yet! Mike tells you it takes—oh, flwferal days, and you go away satisfied. The book says you must the young Beeds copiously, and you do. After two weeks of watting, you dig into the bed like a small boy investi gating th« mechanism of his new of watch, and find the seeds have all rotted from too much water, and cold edrth. Then you try it again, and while you don't expect to have the first rad'shes in town, you expect to have radishes. When the plants do arrive there are a dozen in a bunch. The book tells you to transplant. My, but that is back-breaking work! Mike offers to do it, but what good is a garden If you can't work it your self? And then eomes^a regular Cardinal Wolsey frost and nips th& shoots. "Why, you shouldn't have planted radishes for two weeks yet!" admon ishes a neighbor. That makes you mad, and you quit gardening. Mike grins, orders more seeds and makes the finest plot in town. While you sit up in your room and write things, he transplants and cultivates and grins! Pshaw, what's the use of raising radishes, anyhow? Why, last week you wrote a story and sold it for enough to buy all the radishes in town! I MUra says the moral is that every man should stick to his trade. You Bay any fool ought to know how to raise a suburban garden. Mike makes no reply. This is dan gerous ground for him!

To this constit uency he had given the best that was In him. Often it was hur ried. crude work- crude because of the unceasing, end less, rapid grind, the insatiate greed of the empty columns that must be filled. For six years he had written a column of special matter each day while managing and editing a maga zine. And now, despite the realization that he was doing himself an injury by forcing so much work, he was loth to say good by to all those readers who bad become as a great oongregar tlon to him. Somehow, there seemed to be a something tangible between them and him, a tie that bound. As he trifled with the typewriter keys, his mind wandered away to the kindly old lady in who had writ ten him how every day she read his stories and his poems and his parar graphs and how she had been helped and entertained and her life made happier thereby.

One by one there passed in review the kind words written and spoken by those who thought to stop and express their approbation. There had been some harsh words, too, but the young man shut his lips firmly and waved them aside. What did he care for critics? It was no sorrow to leave critics—but to leave friends—ah, how different! With a grave face the young man left the house and started up the rbad to the station. A squirrel be had known chattered loudly after the re treating figure. The neighbor's dog skulked homeward with a look of sor row in his eyes. The young man had patted him kindly upon the head—and ordered him home! But ahead, in a linden tree a gros beak piped his lay Joyously, a stray cat trotted after the writer and rubbed her shiny coat against bis trousers' leg. In the east, the sun was break ing through a cloud of milky white ness and the sweet breath of blossom ing wild grape wafted across his nos trils. Before him lay ambition and desire, a bigger chance at a bigger game. With a smile upon his face, the young man pressed onward confidently. He was young and there was yet much to do, much to overcome! At the brow of the hill, he turned backward upon the scene of his labors and whispered, softly: "Gude nlcht, and Joy be wl' you a'."
