tained tho People's institute. In con
nection with his proposed enlargement
of tho Ecopoof thdinstitntowork Bishop
Fallows recently outlined- in Tho Trib
une his plans for establishing a scries of
"homo saloons." Tho plans have been
worked out in detail, and tho first two
of tho saloons aro promised to bo estab

I been a slight departure from tho'origi
! Dal plans, and instead of tho "homo sa
' Toons" being all of tho samo cluss thero
1 will bo as many degrees of variation as
I in tho original alcoholic dispensaries.
1 Tho first ones to bo established as an ex
, pcriment will both bo located in tho
. heart of tho down town district. Ono
; will dispcuso 3 cent drinks and tho other
j 10 cent drink?. Ono will cater to tho
' barrel house or grogshop constituency,

A SALABLE BOOK
When I had finished my cursory ex
amination of tho manuscript, I laid it
down on tho table, andshakfngmyhead
"lam sorry to disappoiutyou, oldfel
low, but I should most Etrongly adviso
yon not to try any publisher with this

slightest chanco of its being accepted
anywhere. At tho same time I must say
that for a first attempt it does yon great
credit, aDd certainly if yon stick to your
work you will soon bo able to produce
something that will bo successful."
I tell you that that book is going to
bo tho biggest success of tho year," an
swered Martin Boss, in whoso rooms in
tho iliddlo Templo wo were sitting.
Wo had been at Oxford together and
had gone down about the same time, I to
tako my place on a newspaper and Boss
to try his fortune in tho city. Although
undoubtedly sharp, ho had succeeded in
nothing, and I had been under tho im
pression that ho had emigrated, when
that afternoon I met him in tho Strand,
and ho told mo that ho had written a
novel which was to make his fortune.

quitn certain that no London publisher
would nndertako that book, though I am
sorry to cay so." j
Ho laughed and said: "'I never said
that I Ehonld offer it to any publisher.
I am not such a fooL I want all tho
profits myself. Vhy Ehonld I put the
lion's share of thum into a publisher's

yourself bo guided by me and don't spend
any money on printing that book. I
don't bclicvo that a hundred copies of it
would be told."
"2yO, not a, hundred," he answered
confidently. "A hundred thousand is
nearer tho mark, though I expect tho
salo to go much higher than that. I tell
you that I am to mako my fortuno out
of that book: that I have struck oil this
time, and richly."
"But the style," 1 urged.
"Oh, I know that the style isn't up to
much," ho answered. "I'm no hand at
literature, aud, as a matter of fact, I
took tho least possible trouble over writ
ing this bock. I dashed it off on tho
typewriter in less than a week. But it
isn't on its merits as a work of art that
this book is going to sell."
"Well, as what, then?" I asked.
"Why decs So-and-so's pill and So-and-so's
soap sell? Because they aro
well advertised. Well, my book's going
to be well advertised and accordingly
"I fear you will havo to spend a very
largo sum of money to advertiso tbat
book into success," I remarked.
"I know exactly what I shall havo o
spend. Sixpcnco halfpenny per dozen
copies, or a little over a halfpenny on
each copy. Each halfpenny and fraction
so spent will sell a copy. Tho bookwill
bo produced as cheaply as possible, and
I calculate tho cost to mo at about two
pence. Say that, with the advertising,
each copy cost mo threepence, which is
abovo tho mark, you may calculato what
my profits will bo on a saloof oven 100,-

not," ho answered. "Yon see, I can't
afford to give away tho idea. Yon might
talk about it, aud then somo other' fel
low might Miap it up. Don't bo offend
ed and just watch tho sales of 'A Dis
graco to Society' that is the title I
havo decided upon. They will mako you
open your eyes."
"Very well, just as you please,"!
said rather coldly, rising to tako my de
oarture. I did not seo Boss again for somo
weeks, for, though I called ouco or twice
at his rooms in the Temple. I always

through tho letter lit I could see into

ladies se;Ttcd at a largo table busily writ

ofcards. Two largo baskets, filled with
similar cards, stood on tho floor.

my retain home, I saw qnito a heap of
tho shilling volumes of "A Disgraco to
Society" on tho bookstall at tho station.
At tho Victoria bookstall I saw another
heap of the same book, and on asking
tho clerk how this book was selling ho
answered, "Like hot cakes." Driving
home, I saw it well in ovidenco at. va
rious bookshops. It was evidently a big
success, and I wondered rather envious
ly how Boss had managed to obtain this
for so very worthless a production. I
had purchased a copy at Victoria, and
looking over it in the cab hadjhad ray
first opinion of it confirmed. It was a
wretched piece of work, and, moreover,
diEgracefnlly produced, badly printed on
cheap paper and so carelessly bound
that long ero I reached my lodgings it
had come to pieces in my hand.
"However has ho managed it?" I
cried a3 I remembered thoTery smalK
sale3 that my books, on which I had
spent no mncb timo and trouble, and
which had been published by some of
tho first houses in London, had leached.
Tho mystery was solved to me as I
looked over tho pile of letters which had
collected during my absence. Among
these was a tbin post card, addressed
in an unfamiliar hand, upon which wa3
written the following communication:
Dear Sin A sincere friend considers it his
duty to point out to you, that yon arc cruelly
find scandalously libeled in a miserable shil
ling book called.' A Disgrace to Society." pnb
IrJicdby Messrs. Anderson & llaitland. Ton
owe it both to yourself end to your friends to
tako measures to put a stop to the circulation
of these falsehoods about you.

Now, as soon as I had read this, hav
ing in the meanwhilo forgotten all about
Ross and his book, my first impnlso wa3
to rush out to tho nearest bookstall and
to ask for a copy of tho work referred
to. Then suddenly it flashed across my
mind that I had the book in my pocket,
and remembering what I had seen at
Boss' rooms I began to understand the
advertising scheme of which he had
spoken so sauguincly, and which, ac
cording to what I bad seen and my
own impulse at the moment, I had read
tho post card, seemed decidedly an ef
I happened to meet Ross that same
evening just as he was alighting from
a hansom outsido a fashionable Regent
ect cafe. As soon as hi finr in he
rushed up and cried out: "What did I
tell you, old chap? Is
it a success, or is
it not? Wo aro printing tho sixtieth to
seventieth thousand at tb.13 moment "

Boss glanced at it, and turning rather
red said: "I didn't know that your name
was in tho directory, or I would have
given instructions that yon were not to
bo written to. Not that it matters much
now that tho success of tho book is as
sured. Well, yes, that was the idea, and
famously it has worked, as yon have
seen. We. sent card3to everybody in the
Who's Who, r in' the clergy list, in the
court section of the London directorr

off to the nearest bookseller to get the
book and to find out how it referred to
him. Yon see, everybody has more or
less of a skeleton in his cupboard, and
