The purchase of the plate service
meant printing the paper all at borne.
It was another step forward, and we
took It up unhesitatingly. it wis
early written in the philosophy of
Warren G. Harding that the town or
the institution that does not move
forward must go- backward. The Ick

The Star Acquires a Money Drawer
Later the office was moved, not
because It was cheaper to move than
pay rent, but because we wanted to
get into a broader field, a new Abel
beth-Maachab. We went to the Fife
block on Center street, not far from
the Star's present location. Here
we had a suite of four rooms In
Across the front room Harding
bad a counter built, with a tnony
drawer beneath. We had to bave
some place to keep the extra supply
of collar buttons, which were forever
getting lost in the hustle and bustle
of getting out the paper. Incidental
ly, it may be written that warren
Gamaliel had a penchant, or weak
ness, for counters. They created the
Impression that business lurked
This Pite' block location marks the
real beginning of the Star's success.
It) was here that all possibility ot
failure was put behind us. It was
here that I sold my Interest in the
paper and, having borrowed enough
money to pay my board bill, agreed
toj stay on as hired help and do what
I could to see the thing through. It
was a good game to play and I was
getting interested In writing "pieces

A Un Of All Work
WarrenG. bad an abiding com
passion f&r these wanderers, and
they fared well at his hands. They
told Interesting tales of men high
up In the newspaper business and bad
entertaining stories of towns
throughout the country.
Among the tramp printers who
stood out among the Test was Col.
Hargot. Tall and dignified, he al
ways wore a nign sua nat that was
the worse for wear and a Prince Al-
Name "Bayer" on Genuine;
bert coat. The colonel was one who
didn't like work, but he liked War
ren G. because Warren G.'a clothes
fitted Colonel Hargot. The colonel
carried a cane to show that the world
owed him a living.
During Its lean days the Star of
fice always worked beyond its capac
ity and the old ten-bour day was
not long enough, to the busy days
and nights the editor and publisher
pitched In and looked the part. At
distributing type he was not up to
tbe average journeyman, but at dis
tributing ink he was a star of tbe
first magnitude. He loved Ink unto
the point of taking it unto his bosom.
He liked to smell it. He venerated
it and his faith made him Its strong
advocate ia a day when its power was
not so generally recognized as now.
