twenty-seven years oild who would
have liked to imantI 1e the paper. run

nakiing it somiething for a journalist to
be prolud of. But all old Newrath
woluld d(o for his son John was to
keep him setting type at mihiitnun
wages and give him a small percentage t
on what ids. hie could pick up. V
As soon as the Fairalls started the t
Harvester Newrath saw that unless he a
did something to run them out the c
patronage would all go to the new pIt- a
It was evident that the manager
was a live wire and was disposed to I
make Innovations. The only method of
saving hlniself that appeared to New
rath was to put the price of advertise- "
ments so low that they would all go
into the Plowman. He had $5,000 that
be proposed to sink in this way. !
When Cora Fairall learned that her
competitor was taking ads. at prices
which to compete with would soon use
up the few hundred dollars that re
mained to her after buying the neces- I
sary outtit for a start she felt consld- I
erable despondency. Though plucky, t
she knew that a newspaper cannot I
well be run without advertisements at I
paying prices, and so long as Newrath 4
had some ten times her capital it was t
merely a question of time with her i
Her competitor labored under one i
weakness. His son, who was a much 1
better fellow than his father, had not
been welded to the Interests of the
Plowman. Having met Cora at a
church sociable, he bad taken a fancy
to her, and it was not long before he
was ready to favor her at his father'
expense. Indeed, be laid bare the sit
uation. Core was naturally grateful
for what she received, but saw no
way to save herself, and John Newratb
was unable to help her. HOwever, the
information he gave her was some
thing of an advantage, and be knew
just bow much money Newrath had to
link and how fast it was going out.
The nearer tbe plucky girl came to a
financial collapse the more sympathetic
became the man of all work in the Of
Ice of the Plowman. He said he would
be glad to help her, but he didn't see
bow be could. His father scorned to
be influoenced by him, and if he asked
the old man to let up in his efforts to
ruli the Harvester he would only dou
However, John formed a plan and
gave Core a tip as to how she could
help it. One day he told his father
that he had heard reports about the
Fairalls getting a partner with plenty
of money to establish their paper. This
struck the old man with terror. Noth
ing troubled him more than the losing
galme he had been playing, and the
bare Idea of falling in his plan and be
ing run out of business besides was a
blow to him.
A ffw days after his son communi
eated this disheartening report there
was a notice on the editorial page of
the Harn ester that the paper would
soon appear In a new dreiss. What its
editor meant was undress or no dress
at all. for she expected to suspend.
For the first time in his life Newranth
senior can 1n-ate4d with his son as to tlhe

After this his father asked him how

Ideas Come to Them. It Would Seem. t
In Spite of Themselves.
Bernard Shaw has stated more than d
once that he is "Inspired." "I am
pushed." he says. "by a natural need d
to set to work to write down conver- C
sations that come into my head unac
countably. At first I hardly know the II
speakers and cannot find names for
them. Then they become more and
more familiar, and I learn their names.
Finally I come to know them very
well and discover what it is they are
driving at and why it is they have
said and done the things I have been
moved to set down."
Other writers and painters. too. have
described their processes in a similar
way. William Blake was positive and
emphatic in describing himself as a
mere amanuensis, writing down the
words that were audibly spoken to d
him, and he painted in the same way
from a model set before his eyes and a
visible to him alone. Rodin. the
French sculptor, gave his assent to the
same idea of models visible to the eye
I of the artist. Dickens said that his
I characters were actually visible and
audible to him, and it will be remem
bered that "Kubla Khan" was dictat- t
ed to Coleridge while be slept.-Lo
