"I never wanted to be a writer," said Tarkiugton, "and unless I am absolutely forced to do so, I have written my last book. My ambi tion iv. life is to become an Hi us I once thought I was in a fair way to reach my goal. The very first illustration I made sold for $20. Then I made 38 more, and every one of them was re jected. "I now have but one ambition — to make money enough to get out of this play-writing mess and pur chase a nice farm, in Indiana, where 1 may lead the life of a country gentleman, with just enough to keep me from want — nothing more." Tarkington declares his sister is responsible for his success as a novelist. It was sho who went to the publishers and almost upon her knees begged McClure to read his first effort, "The Gentleman From Indiana." CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE. KEY TO SUCCESS The Daly estate —for it is more like a baronial estate than a ranch —is beautifully kept up. There are seven superintendents living in tasteful and comfortable houses; each having charge of a section of the land. A private irrigation sys tem supplies an abundance of wa ter. The steam-heated Indoor half mile race track is maintained, and one of the sights pointed out to vis itors is the J22.000 stable built for the exclusive us of Mr. Daly's fa mous horse Tammany—"fram- many's palace," It is called. During his life Mr. Daly enjoyed a large measure of popularity among the residents of the valley, nnd his memory Is still held In high regard. He stood for all there was Of enterprise In his lifetime, and all that has come in the way of development In recent years was outlined in the plans and projects, which were ended by his death. It was Marcus Daly who dis covered the adaptability of the Hit ter Root valley for fruit growing under Irrigation, in the develop ment of his estate he called in the expert horticulturists of the coun try, including those of the state and the United States agricultural departments, and had a study made of the soil and climatic conditions, supplemented by a survey of the bench lands nt the base of the Rit ter Root mountains. As a result of the reports from these experts he planned an enormous reclamation work, Involving the construction of an irrigation canal 60 miles in lentgh to bring the waters of Como lake from a spot hundreds of feet up in the mountains, through an inverted siphon under the Hitter Root river, and across to the east ern side of the valley, there to water the 40,000 acres of sage-cov ered bench lands, ideal locations, as the experts reported, fur or chards. This dream of Daly has now been realized. A private company, backed by Chicago. Philadelphia and New York capital, has put In two millions of dollars, and (his Rummer saw the first crops ever raised on these high benches at the base of the Hitter Root moun tains. Incidentally the lands are being marketed nt $250 nn acre, and up ward. Which figure should he set alongside the figure at which the government is selling Irrigated homestead tracts In Huntley, Mont., namely, $34 an acre. Dr. Cook and Wife in Crush. ST.

PITTSBURG, Oct. 14.—Their eyes Hashing with indignation and determination, 20 fashionable young women, composing the Chrestomathian class of the Mary S. Brown Memorial Sunday School, left the school in open rebellion against the pastor, the Rev. C. V. Wilson, when he attempted to take the place of F. W. Bonar, class organizer and regular teacher. Their action nearly disrupted the school, and only the desire to avoid a most embarrassing situa tion kept the other members of the school In their places. The girls "sassed" the pastor, and then went to the home of Bonar, where they organized a class and studied the lesson. The pastor and his new Sunday school superintendent, Robert Patterson, whose nomination by the Sunday school board has not been confirmed by the conference, took charge of the school yester day. The girls composing the Chres toroathlan class are opposed to the change, and have decided to re main away until Bonar again takes charge. TRAVELED FAR IN AUTO TO AVOID REPORTERS NEW HAVEN, Conn..

Lehmann Theatrical "TEXAS" IS GOOD "Texas," a comedy drama of the southern plains, opened a two night's engagement at the Audi torium last night, a fairly good audience welcoming the play, which smacks of the cowboy life of the west. Plenty of good, wholesome comedy and the struggle between "Freshwater" Jack, the hero, and Pasquale. a border half-breed, makes the production a very enjoy able one. Pasquale, the ruffian half-breed, is the counterpart of Trampas in "The Virginian," the struggle be tween the bad man and "Fresh water" resembling that portrayed by Dustin Farnuni in his famous play of the west. The scheming of Lord Angus Trevor, the Englishman in the play, to secure possession of the prop erty of Colonel Buck West, man ager and owner of Buck Head ranch, is an interesting addition to the comedy supplied by Mrs. Jen nie Peppercorn.
