Romances of Progress
By Albert Payson Terhune GUTENBERG—Father of Newspaper and Book. GUTENBERG—Father of John Gutenberg, son of an exiled hobleman of Mainz, had an idea. The good people of Strasburg, where the young man lived, early in the fifteenth century, gave little credence to any of his theories. For Gutenberg was what would nowadays be known as a "get-rich quick" crank. He had floated several schemes, borrowed money to perfect them, and had in every case failed to accomplish more than the impoverishing of himself and his backers. Gutenberg's newest idea had come to him on seeing a full set of playing cards which had been constructed by means of stamps, or dies, instead of by hand. To the world at large this labor-saving process seemed wonder ful. But it meant nothing more than that to any one except Gutenberg. It set him, however, to thinking. If a collection of blocks with vari ous designs carved on them could be used to mark cards, why could not a similar set of blocks be made, each bearing one of the letters of the al phabet, and used for printing words, sentences, even whole pages? For centuries a process had been in use whereby such words, phrases and pictures were carved upon large blocks of wood, smeared with ink, covered with paper and subjected to a squeeze from a sort of cider-press. The result was a A Discovery and How It was Made. more or less smud gy reproduction of the carved letters or figures. Kings had been wont to use monograms carved on wood or inetal to stamp signatures to state documents. In China, as early as 175 A. D. a far more advanced form of printing flourished than Europe was destined to know for more than 1,000 years thereafter But Gutenberg's idea far outstripped anything thus far dreamed of. For he planned (by means of many dupli cates of each letter of the alphabet) the first form of "movable type." By placing, or "setting," these block let ters In correct position he could make quickly in his "form." The press he devised was of two upright timbers, with cross-pieces con necting them at bottom and top with two other cross-timbers, of which the lower supported the "form" of type. A large wooden screw ran from the upper timber down to the center of a wooden block or platen. "form" was put in place and inked a sheet of paper was damped and laid over it and the screw- turned until the pressure stamped the inked printing When the SHAKESPEARE.-The Revolutionized A youth of 20—the official "bad boy'' of the sedate town of Stratford on-Avon—was again in trouble. This time on a more serious charge than the beating of night watchmen or pil fering of fruit or other time-honored customs of the place. He was ac cused of no less an offense than the stealing of deer from the park of Sir Thomas Lucy, chief magistrate of the community. Not so very many years earlier this had been a crime punish able by death. Even now—in 15S6— it entailed heavy penalty. The youth thus accused was Will Shakespeare, son of a formerly well to-do merchant who had lallen on such financial ill-luck that this eldest son of his had been obliged to leave school at 13 and go to work. Young Shakespeare was accused not only of stealing St. Thomas' deer, but of writing a scurrilous poem con cerning the august magistrate him self. Altogether, Stratford became too hot to hold him. He ran away to London. But for that deer-stealing episode the world might never have heard of Shakespeare. And the march of progress—in literature and lan guage as well—would have lacked its greatest impetus. Though so young, Shakespeare had been married for about two years. His wife, Anne Hath away, was eight years his senior. Per haps for this reason, perhaps from poverty, he left her and his children behind when he went to London. Practically penniless, the fugitive reached the metropolis and cast about him for some means of livelihood. But he had no love for routine drudg ery- nor experience in higher occupa tions. So he quick ly drifted to the theaters and re newed acqxiaintance with some of the actors with whom he had caroused at Stratford. He picked up a few pence by holding the horses of men who came to see the plays. Later he leased out this hostler job to a number of Btreet urchins, who became known as "Shakespeare Boys." From holding horses to picking up bits of work in side the theater was but a step. And in time he was playing small parts in various plays of the day. And so, for five years, went on his hand-to hand battle against poverty. Play The Fight with Poverty. writing at that time was the crudest sort of art. Indecency, illiteracy, wretched English, poor plots and dreary stupidity were the drama's chief characterists. England, in fact, was far behind many other civilized na tions in culture and literature. Among the tasks allotted to Shake speare in the theaters where he acted was the rewriting of old plays for use on the stage and the adapting and "building up" of parts to suit certain famous actors. At this he achieved Sure Proof. "They say Thelma's husband is « very amiable man." "Amiable? I should say so. I have known that man to laugh at a joke when he was taking down the stove pipe." Different. "He studied art with you, I lieve?" "He did not" "But he says he did." . "He lies. I gave him art lessons, but Tie never studied." be of Newspaper and Book. letters on the paper. It was a simple, primitive affair, but it revolutionized printing and made possible all later books and newspapers. And, like most steps in progress, It was achieved through suffering. The plan dawned on Gutenberg about 1446. He was then 36 years old. For four years he tolled at his inven tion. He mortgaged or sold every thing he owned, squandered his whole fortune, borrowed every penny he could lay hands on. He was reduced to poverty. Still he worked on. His wife was forced to scrape together enough funds to keep her husband and herself from starvation. The wives of geniuses have seldom had an especially pleasant time in life. They have usually borne the brunt of worry, work and unspeakable hard ship, while their husbands finally reaped all the credit and fame. Gutenberg Induced a goldsmith, John Faust by name, to advance him 1,600 guilders to perfect the labor of making press and type. Then, in 1450, he set to work printing a Bible. This was a labor Robbed of Fruits of His Invention. It of five years, was the first book ever printed, and came out in 1455. The experiment was proved a success. Printing was at last a known art. But no one was especially enthusiastic. The public did not realize that the discovery amounted to much. Faust demanded the return of the money he had lent. Gutenberg could not pay. Faust seized all the inventor's prop erty, including type, presses and oth er machinery, and set up a printing establishment on his own account. Thus, at 50, Gutenberg was "broke," robbed of his invention and obliged to start life all over again. He began afresh, with more bor rowed money, on a new set of ma chinery, and was finally able to re sume printing books. But now a new difficulty arose. Heretofore a guild of copyists had made a living by writ ing out copies of books for public sale. Monks also had gained large sums by illuminating such books. The inven tion of printing, of course, robbed both these classes of employment. Hence artisans and churchmen at tacked Gutenberg viciously. Worn out, childless, alone, impov erished, friendless, other men enjoy ing the fruits of his lifetime of labor, poor old Gutenberg, in 1468, died, hav ing won the usual earthly martyrdom and immortal fame that seems the dual reward of nearly all great Prog ress-Makers. (Copyrighted.) Man Who Literature an instant and marvelous success—a success that none but the greatest genius of his country could ever have achieved, for he not only revised the plays in question, but transformed them into vital, brilliant productions lassies for all time—couched in sublime verse and diction and so wholly changed from their original form as to be practically new. Many of the best plays attributed to Shake speare were thus rewritten by him from others' manuscripts. Nearly all the rest were taken almost bodily from old books, stories, poems or legends. This is not regarded as pla giarism, since to each "borrowed" plot Shakespeare gave a new setting and treatment and new diction and clothed it in his own beauty of style. In fact, of all his plays, "Love's Labor Lost" (perhaps the poorest of the lot) is said to be the only one that was whol ly original with him. How the half-educated, harum scarum country boy ever amassed the education to write such classics has always been and always must remain a mystery. But the writing of them revolutionized not only the drama but all literature as well. England took and held a posi tion in culture equal to that of any nation. Queen Elizabeth delighted to do the new genius honor. Great men vied for the chance of becoming his patrons. His fellow actors and play wrights in turn envied and hated him. But he pursued his chosen way un heeding, continuing to write (or re write) great plays and to act in them. He was an indifferent actor and was intrusted with no great parts. For instance, he played the Ghost in "Hamlet," Adam in "As You Like It," and similar minor roles. His salary as an actor was about $500 a year. For the first few years his annual re ward as a playwright was barely $ 100 . But as his plays grew in favor he waxed rich. In 1599 he left London and returned to Stratford, where he wiped off old scores and earlier disgrace by buy ing the finest estate in the town. There, until the his death in 1616, he lived in luxury, courted by the chil dren of the men who had once perse cuted him. Even in death his genius showed itself, for he hit on a clever plan to save his remains from the dis interment so common at that time. This four-line verse, said to have been bis latest poem, was cut on his tomb stone, and its wording has ever since guarded his grave from molestation: "Good friend, for Jesus' sake forbear To dig the dust inelos-ed here. Blest be the stones, But curst be he who moves my bones!" (Copyrighted.) Honored and Per secuted. man who spares these All That Was Left. Church—Did you see the hotel fire? Gotham— Y es.

Janitors, housemaids and other peo ple whose duty it is to help keep the world clean will find a useful article in the mop-wringer attachment de signed by a Colorado man. By means of this device the yarn end of a mop may be squeezed comparatively dry by the mere turning of a crank. At the bottom of the handle is .1 wring er device, consisting of two parallel $ J* . .. j Useful for Janitors. wire frames operated by a strong spring. One end of the mop is placed in the jaws of the device, and by turn ing the handle, which operates the wheel, the yarn is drawn through the wires like clothes through a clothes wringer. The advantage of being able to squeeze most of the moisture out of a mop to make It damp, instead of dripping, is well known. This can not be done satisfactorily by hand, and the only other device for that purpose is an attachment for a buck et, but this necessitates the carrying around of the bucket wherever the mop is taken.

In the smoking-room of the Finland, discussing a June wedding, Andrew Carnegie said: "And thank goodness it wasn't an international marriage, though the bride did have 18 millions. "Not," appended Mr. Carnegie, "that I object to international marriages wherein the two parties are good and honorable and well matched. But so many of these marriages are like one that a Boston cynic described to me. " 'Was It a happy marriage?'I asked this Bostonian. " 'Oh, quite,' said he. 'The bride was happy, her mother was over joyed. Lord Lacland was in ec stacies, and his creditors, I under stand, were in a state of absolutely endless and uncontrollable bliss.' " Time to Change Subject. The Courier-Journal tells of this embarrassing statement made by a well-known Louisville woman who is known as "saying things without thinking." Her daughter was enter taining a young man on the front porch and the mother was standing at the fence talking to the neighbors next door. In the yard of the latter was a baby a little over a year old, and it was trying to walk. "You shouldn't let it walk so young," ad vised the thoughtless matron. "Wait until it's a little older. I let my daughter walk when she was about that age, and it made her bow-legged." The young man began to talk ener getically about the w-eather. Hospitals a Benefit to Property. The National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis has recently concluded an investiga tion, which shows that 67.5 per cent, of the tuberculosis sanatoria and hos pitals of the United States have been a benefit to the property and health of the communities in which they are located. In the case of more than 62 per cent, of the sanatoria the presence of the institutions has helped to in crease the assessed value of surround ing property. Mother Bird Drove Boy Away.
