Into the newspaper business her father
made a loss that crippled him. and
wliliin another year he was financially
wrecked. He was too old to begin

appears to be desperate. Cora step

and Jewelry she realised a thousiiud

to a smaller place and start a news

both too broken down by their misfor

the establishment of the Harvester at

There was nnother paper In Wood
land, the Plowman, owned by Jame
Newt-nth. a merchant. He sold goods
during the day nnd got up his news
paper during the night. When be slept
no one knew. ije had n son about
twenty-seven years old who would
have liked to manage the paper, run
ning It on less antiquated lino nnd
making It something for a Journalist to
be proud of. Put all old Newrnth
would do for his son John was to
fcoep him setting type nt minimum
wages and give him n small percentage
on whet sds. he could pick up.
As soon ns she Falrnlls started th
Harvester Newrath saw that unles ho
aid something to run them out the
patronage would all go to the new na

was a live wire and was disposed to
make Innovations. The only method of
saving himself that appeared to New
rath was to put the price of advertise
ments so low that they would all go
Into the Plowman. He bad 15,000 that
he proposed to sink In this way.
When Cora Falrull learned that bet

The nearer the plucky girl came to a
