"I'll Introduce you to Pilsner." he said to me one night, when we r-farted out on our rounds. "You'll like it better than your coffee strong enough to float your bandit bullets." We went to a German restaur ant on Croadway. We took a lit tle table near the foot of the ; stairs. In one of his stories; O, . !

I have watched Mm sit wih pencil poised sometime for hours, waiting for the story to tell It-1 self to his brain. O. Henry was a careful artist. He was a slave to the dictionary. He would pour over it. seeming to take an infinite relish in the discovery of a new twist to a word. . One day be was sitting at the table with h!a back to me. He had been writing with Incredible rap idity, as though the words Just ran themselves automatically from bis pen. Suddenly be stop ped. For half an hour he sat silent, and then he turned round, rather surprised to find me still there. "Thirsty. Colonel? Let's get a drink." "Bill," my curiosity was. up, "does your mind feel ' a blank when you sit there like that?" The question seemed to amuse him. "No but I have to reason out the meaning of words." "Bill Porter Truest Man I've Known There was no ostentation in Porter, either in his writing or in his observations. I never eaw him make notes in public, except once 10 a while be would jot a word down on the corner of his napkin. He didn't want other people to know what he was thinking about. He didn't need to take notes, for he was not a procras tinator. He transmuted his thoughts into stories while the warm beat threbbed in them. Careless and irresponsible as he seemed almost aimless at times I think there was in Bill Porter a purposiveness that was grim and so determined that he would allow no external influence to interfere with his plan of life. I have sometimes felt that this passionate will to be himself at all times made him so aloof and reclusive. He sought companion ship freely with strangers, for Le could dispense with their com pany at will. He wanted to Hve untrammeled. And he did. He was Incorrigibly stubborn minded. Of all the men I have ever known Bill Porter ran truest to the nat ural grain. (Continued next week). J II. C'larlc.
