ALL AUTHORS ARE, TALKATIVE
If You Know One, Be Tactful and Let
Him Converse About His
I know nothing about really great
authors, but I think I speak for a
large number of the followers of the
trade ,when I say that they like to
talk about their work, one great rea
son being that writing is a lonely pro
fession. If yon write, as a rule you
must do tt ,by yourself; or if you do
attempt It in company, you or the
company will be sorry. Therefore,
when the writing is done, and a sym
pathetic listener offers, ,the writer is
glad to wipe out some of the lonely
hours with a little conversation.
So. if you know an author, don't ba
too breathless , about his calling; treat
him like a human being. Let him talk
a little, and do not be shocked if he
manages to keep the tears back when
he tells you about his last short
story. Only, be tactful.
Do not say, as an eager acquaint
ance once said to me: "Oh, I do think
it ;is so interesting to write. It must
be Just fascinating when your manu
scripts come back!" I discovered af
terward that she meant proofs in
stead of manuscripts, but the mistake
of Just (that single word made me,
who am usually so garrulous about
my trade, feel for the time being that
I really did not care ever to 6peak
of it again.) So I repeat, let the poor
author talk, but be tactful. Atlantic

If we admit that green foods are good

They contain about 99 per cent wa-

fiber and a trace of starch, a little

where Is the virtue? One cannot very
well say, but It's a proven fact, that
a moderate amount of green food acta

good and the whole works running

going northward towards Hampstead.
The Unes 'of houses broke up Into sep
arate villas. Lilac and laburnum
bushes peeped over the garden walls.
The throng of traffic grew thinner, the
pavement less crowded. It was past

followed at his heels.

As we pa-sed the shop at a walking

his assistant were hoisting the bicycle

Fifty yards more snd we drew up ty
Peace kept the windows closed, so
that I could not look bark along the
road: but through the glass In front
I could see that our driver was quietly
taking note or affairs. It was not the
first time that the Inspector had em
ployed him, as I learnt afterwards,
and the man knew his business.
Suddenly our cab whlHked round
and set off at a rapid pace. The stran
ger had selected a fast horse, thut
waa evident. Wo swung through a
maze of narrow streets, tugged up a
long hill, skirted a stretch of open
common a part of Hampstead Heath.
I believe and finally stopped In the
shade of some tall trees. As I got out
I saw the lights of the chalne station
ary at some distance up the road.
"There may be trouble, Mr. Phil
Hps," whispered the little detective.
"I'm not certain I ought to bring you
along. If anything"
"Nonsense!" I interrupted, glancing
down at him with some amusement
"Well, take this, anyway. I had It
from a German burglar."
He thrust a strip of hardened rub
ber into my hand, about eighteen
Inches in length by two In thickness.
"It will stun a man without leaving
a mark," be saM gently.
The four-wheeler that we hsd fol
lowed was waiting before a green door
set tn a high brick wall. Without any
attempt at concealment. Peace walked
to the door and tried the handle. It
waa not locked, and we passed Into a
fair-sized garden, set about with flow
er beds and clumps of laurel. In the
middle I could see the outline of a
square gray house. Two of the ground
floor rooms glowed behind their cur
tains; the rest waa darkness.
We crossed a comer of the lawn,
and stopped behind a patch of bushes
directly in front of the entrance
porch. The night was very still and
silent. What desperate men were
gathered In that quiet place? How
could we hope to arrest them flushed
with the triumph of so splendid a
prize T To be truthful, I began to feel
a certain anxloty for our position;
though upon Peace's face, showing
white In the gloom, was a look of per.
feet serenity a look that I could not
"Mercy, oh, mercy!"
It was a trembling wall of terror, a
wall that was suddenly blotted out by
a roar like the challenge of a bull.
From within the house came the crush
of overturned chairs and the Jingle of
breaking glass. And all tho time the
shrieks and hoarse ravings drew near
er and louder, until, with a loud bang,
the ball door was flung open and a
man tumbled down the steps as If
