Rudyard Kipling a Born Storyteller
A CLASSMATE AT COLLEGE RECOUNTS THE
BOY'S GREATEST CHARM S & d
G EORGE ARNOLD "WIL-KE, an or
ange grower of Riverside, CaL, was
in a reminiscent mood recently, and
as he ivas a fellow-student with. Kipling
in college, ho gave some interesting" infor
mation concerning this unique and absorb
ing personality in the realm of letters.
Between Mr. "Willie and Mr. Kipling
there has been a'bond of friendship for
over 20 years. The literary man and the'
California orange grower regularly ex
change letters and about four years ago
Mr. Wilkie paid a visit to Kipling in
"American critics and reviewers," said
Mr. "Wilkie, in speaking of his friend,
"generally regard Kipling as a sort of
freak in literature that may become a
Miltonesque creature or some empty prat
tler, but there is nothing freakish about
"The first time I ever saw Rudyard Kip
ling was In the quaint, old, picturesque
village of Rottlngdean, among the green
tros and gray cliffs, on the southern
roast of England. This was about 21
years ago. I was then a puny, sickly
appearing fellow, who looked more like
13 yeara than 10, and many people thought
I had not long to live. My father had
been a member of the English army in
India, and while there he had become
acquainted "with John Lock wood Kipling,
the artistic father of Rudyard Kipling.
"When we got to Rottlngdean, we found
the Kipling family, consisting of the par
ents, a little daughter and a son, spending
the season in a cottage near the bond
pome residence of the famous artist, Slr
Edward Burne-Jon.es, who Is a brother of
young Kipling's mother. This was in
1S79 and Kipling was a boy of 14, his small
black eyes twinkling observantly through
a pair of gold-bowed spectacles. Brown
faced, with thick, curly black hair, strong
jaw, large white teeth and inclined to
athletic sports, he looked the very pic
ture of health as compared with me. He
had a rolling gait and he walked with
his fists crammed tightly In the pockets
of his coat. In spite of his nearsighted
ness he was a fairly good tennia player?
though he often grieved at his poor eye
sight, for' he wanted to excel In the sport.
Ho also loved to fish all by himself or
with only one companion and he used to
horrify his circumspect mother by coming
home from some of these expeditions with
a mass of dock burrs, or several varieties
of nettle's, sticking to his woolen clothes
in a dozen places, while smelling fish
scales stuck to his coat and trousers like
Rudyard at College.
"In September, 1S79, Kipling entered the
"United Service College, a comparatively
oung institution of learning at North
Devon, in the northern parish and one
which was regarded as an educational in
stitution to put the finishing touches of
practical educational equipment upon and
used only for older sons of men In the
military service, t was here a year before
Kipling came among us and as he was.
somewhat Inclined to. be shy with strang
ers It -was some time before he became
acquainted with the other fellows. But
he and I became fast friends.
"He was nicknamed 'Giggsy by the
boys at the school because of his large
spectacles, that reminded the lads of gig
lamps. This, however, he did not mind.
He was soon known among us as a
keen story-teller; and he would often
keep us boys breathless and Interested

story of the East Indian fakirs' penances.

"As joon as I get my kit."

rescue. Only when I pressed tho cold
muzzle of the revolver to his temple did
he at last understand that resistance was

and rose breathless from the struggle.

Sherlock Holmes; "I fear that the scram

"Not at all," said Holmes. "Let us

Sphinx the moment some uncongenial boy
came in. and the rest of us would wonder
what was the matter with him.
"Kipling had a good ear for brogues
and dialects and when he introduced,
the Hlndoostani dialect Into his stories
he would gesture violently with his
forefinger, sometimes that index digit
pointing straight in front of him like
A Born Story-Teller.
"What kind of stories did Kipling
mostly tell?" was asked.
"Oh, stories of human sacrifices in
the Ganges, adventures of sailors in
India, the greenness of the raw re
cruits, the mishaps of travelers In the
sacred precincts of the Indian tem
ples, the dreadful self-lnfllcted tor
tures of the fakirs and the weird reli
gious traditions that one hears in Cal
cutta, all rattling good stories and en
tertainingly told: and sometimes when
he would stop after one story we would
call for more. The Man "Who Would Bo
King. one of his 'Plain Tales' striking
ly reminds me of some of these boyish
narratives. Kipling, even as a boy,
had a keen sense of the fitness of
tilings in words. He would seldom use
a word, phrase or expression not adapt
ed to his sense of fitness. He would rub
that chin of his a moment thoughtfully
with hla chubby hand look through his
glasses contemplatively until the, pre
cise word came to his memory. We fel
lows, however, who had no idea of
diction, (or else did not care for it at
this time), as wo sought only to get the
plot or the sensation of the story,
would grow Impatient and yell for him
to go on.
"During the holiday season of 1880
1881, Rudyard saw Henry Irving and
Ellen Terry act In "The Merchant of
Venice7" in London; and it waa an eye
opening revelation to the boy. His en
thusiastic description of the acting of
these two superb geniuses In several
scenes in that play was so beautifully
picturesque and thrilllngly impressive
that I ehall always remember it
As an Amateur Editor.
"From March 1881, until June. 1SS2,
Kipling was editor-in-chief of the col
lego periodical. Tho Chronicle,' and,
with the exception of two months that
I served as .sub-editor and a few scat
tering articles, he produced the whole
thing. There was no pay In the office
but as Kipling wanted to be a news
paper man he worked at his post like a
slave and wrote ballads, little stories
entitled "When Rome Burned Down,'
Illustrating the weaknesses and follies
of modern vicars, and every copy of
the edition was sold in a hurry. His
work, too, had to be done on holidays
or outside of the regular hours devoted
"Kipling's editorials were clever
and often gingery. Once he lampooned
the mathematical faculty in his ballads,
and but for the genuineness of the fun
he would probably have received mor
than a light reprimand. At about the
same time he won the gold medal of the
college for a prize essay on 'England
and Her Colonies,' in the face of tre
"As a student Kipling ranked low in
mathematical and scientific studies but
was particularly good in historical
matters. At amateur theatricals Kip
ling was always good In boy parts.
As, a Real Editor.
"In September. 1882, Kipling al!ed
for Calcutta and took a position which
his father had obtained for him in sub-
when we picked up a little craft that had
been blown north. There -was one man
on her a landsman. The crew had
thought she would founder, and had made
for the Norwegian coast in the dinghy.
I guess they were allx drowned. Well, we
took him on board, this man, and ho and
the skipper had some long talks in the
cabin. AH the baggage we took off with
him was one tin box. So far as I know,
the roan's name was never mentioned,
and on the second night he disappeared
aa if he had never been. It was given
out that he had cither thrown himself
overboard or fallen overboard in the
heavy weather that we were having.
Only one man knew what had happened
to him. and that was me. for. with my
own eyes, I saw the skipper Up up his
heels and put him over the rail In the
middle watch of a dark night, two days
before we sighted the Shetland Lights.
"Well, I kept my knowledge to myself,
and waited to sec what would come of it
When we got back to Scotland It was
easily hushed up, and nobody asked any
questions. A stranger died by accident,
and It was nobody's business to Inquire.
Shortly after Peter Carey gave up the
se&. and It was long years before I could
find where he was. I guessed that he
had the deed for the sake of what waa
in the tin box. and that be could afford
now to pay mc well for keeping my

sailor roan that had met him in London,
and down I went to squeeze him. The
first .night he was reasonable enough, and
was ready io give me what would make
editing and all-around reportorial
work on tne Lahore JournaL From
November, 18S3, until January, 1830,
Kipling remained in Lahore and Cal
cutta, occasionally journeying into
the country on some mission connected
with his newspaper work.
"In 1884 he began writing sketches
for the Civil and Military Gazetto at
Lahore, which attracted considerable
attention from the army In India, and
the English papers wero soon copying
the stuff, altbougn Kipling waa known
by all the white people In India three
years before he was known in England
"Kipling's progress as a litterateur
was helped greatly by his family, his
lather, mother and Ulster, and was
most advanced between 1SSS and 18S7.
The Kipling home at Lahore was. a ver
liable conservatory of literature and
art, for In it John Lockwood Klpllna-,
the father, was devoting himself tn
Browning and plastic art work. Mis
Kipling, his sister, was busy writing
a book about Shakespearean women
and the mother was aiding in its com
position, while young Kipling hlmsolf
worked all day for the Lahore Journal
and then spent hours at night writing
sketches, quips and ballads. At this
time of his life he was a phenomenal
worker and his Industry was all tho
more remarkable because in India
white people work, for months at a
time, as little as they can help.
"The work, however, that gave Kipling
a prominent place in the minds of the
literary English In India, and especially
the army people, were his contributions to
the Christmas number of the ClvHl and
Military Gazetto for 1883. There wero ex
actly nine stories by this 20-year-old au
thor and the rest of the family was well
represented. In fact, by some it has been
said that this number of the Gazette was
a Kipling family edition for besides Klp
ing's article and stories there were two
or three stories and sketches by his sis
ter, as many moro by Ids mother and a
page of literary criticism and a Jew pic
tures by his father. One of these num
bers sold In New Tork City in 1S87 for SS0.
Commended by Authors.
"Eevtral months after, these stories
(among which were 'Phantom Rickshaw'
and Tarted') were republished" In the
London periodicals "and brought him com
mendatory letters from Thomas Hardy,
the English novelist; Henry James and
others concerning these brilliant speci
mens of literary craft.
"In the "Winter of 15S6-S7 he- was offered
a salary of $2500 a year to act as the Cal
cutta correspondent for the London Illus
trated News, and for a while he seriously
thought of accepting It but when he
found that It would Interfere with his
more literary work he cut It out and de
clined the offer.
"Mr. Kipling has always lived the stren
uous life in his literary endeavors to pro
duce good work. Take for Instance The
Light that Failed, which became so sud
denly popular In Europe and America.
This story was worked upon at times dur
ing two years, and waa not given a title
until the last two weeks of Its preparation.
The first few chapters wero written in
Lahore, others wero written in Calcutta,
and Kipling when quitting India to go to
London by way of China. Japan and the
United States took the beloved manuscript
with him; and he gave days und nights to
revision and creation on shlpooard and In
hotels, where he could work in peace and
quiet. There were two endings to the
story, and "Wolcott Balestier. a young
Ne Yorker in London (whoso sister Kip

I found him thrco parts drunk and In a

and we yarned about old times, but the
more he drank the less I liked the look
on his face. I spotted that harpoon upon
the wall, and I thought I might need it

broke out at me, spitting and cursing,
with murder In his eyes and a great clasp

Blood poverty is often an inheritance,

healtjiy, strong blood supply; they have
weak bodies, soft, flabby muscles, brittle
bones, often weak eyes and scrofulous affec

susceptible to Catarrh, Rheumatism and
other blood troubles, because their blood does not possess the strength and vigor necessary
to purge the system of the poisons and impurities which produce these diseases.
Long continued sickness is another cause of blood poverty. The blood becomes infected
with the germs of disease, and when the body begins its work of recuperation and building
back to health, the blood, because of its impoverished condition, is unable to furnish the sys
tem with the nourishment and strength necessary, and Old Sores or Ulcers, Skin diseases
or some other blood disorder follows. Persons whose blood is poor and weak will find that
if the trouble is not corrected there will be some serious blood disease, later in life.
When the system is suffering from bloojl poverty it is in a very weakened condition and
should be treated with a remedy that is not only thorough, but very gentle in its action.

extremely difficult, for opals are generally
found near the surface. Indeed, It was
thought for a long time that they were
not to be found as deep as 12 feet below
the surface. This opinion has, however,
given way In the light of evidence, be
cause opals of great value have been dis
covered at a death of SO feet.
The value of opals depends upon sev
eral considerations, of which the prlncl
pal one is the color. It is Important that
they should bo bright and not present
streaks or spots alternating with uncol
ored substance. The most valuable are
those which have red flres or mixtures
of red and yellow, blue and green.' Opals
of single tint are of little value, unless the
tint Is particularly striking and the figure
beautiful. Indeed, one of the essential
qualities of the opal is the arrangement
of the figure, which sets off strikingly
the hue of the stone.
"When the figure Is quite regular and
distinct it is the more valuable, much less
so when the grain Is quite small and Ir
regular. Sometimes the color appears as
a single blaze or with figures regularly
spaced. It may then bo of a fine ruby
red. and is much sought after, but often
est the uniform tint Is only green or red
dish, and has but little brilliancy to speak
The cutting is very important for the
opal; thus a thick stone will be much
less beautiful than a thin stone, which.
on losing part of its volume, loses also
the figure. The foundation tint contrib
utes much to- the beauty. It ought to be
transparent, slightly milky, and harraon
