For a moment Nell's hand faltered.
The pounding of the machines and the
endless click of the shifting stencil
seemed to pierce her very brain. She
cast a quick glance down the long
workroom of the Rotnry Addressing
Out through the windows at the other
end could le seen a patch of blue sky,
blurred now and then by a puff of
steam from the pipes of the adjoining
building; a modest seven story struc
ture. Here and there some building
larger than their own reared Its head
to cut the skyline, and through the

Within, long rows of girls leuued
over their work, their deft fingers forc
ing envelopes into the hungry maws
of the machines with only a pause now
and then wheu a fresh stuck of sten

paced the sharp eyed forewoman. A
man had been In charge of the room
once, but the firm had found that be
was too easy, too commiserate of the
women under his supervision, and they
had moved him Into the office, sending
In his stead the angular Miss Pettlt,
who forced the girls In her charge to
the limit of their endeavors. Her sharp
eye detected Nell's pause.
"Hurrowes," she called acidly. She
never wasted time on "Miss." "If you
have one of your silly headaches, put
In your time at the office and go home.
This Is no hospital."
Nell's nervous fingers clutched a fresh
package of envelopes, and the pound
lug of her machine added its noise to
that of the others. She could not af
ford to go home. The pittance that

enough without Indulging the luxury
f an afternoon off.
Jimmy Nelson, coming Into the room
to consult with Miss Pettlt about an
order, looked with kindly sympathy at
the tired girl. When he had had
charge of the rooti. be had been mora
gentle. She had told him something
of bar story In the noon Intervals

and the errand girl who made the trips
to the lunch room must be tipped In ad
dition. The Uotnry Addressing com
pany paid only from J3 to $0 a week,
and coffee was a luxury to those who
did not lire at home.
There had leeu a time when Jimmy
had dreamttl of a little flat wberelu
Nell should be mistress. That was Just
after he had Iven promoted to the of
ftVe and had had his salary raised to
115 a week. He Imd lacked the eour
to constitute a minimum day's work.
A record was made each evening and ,
the advancement or reduction of sal- i
ary depended upon that. She had j
barely managed to complete the task j
when the gong struck and the girls
began to cover their machines and put
their tables In order. Nell staggered
nightly as she took the last of her
work to the timekeeper, who entered
her record In the book. Miss Pettlt
eyed her sharply ns she went back to

had better not come tomorrow." she
an Id crossly. "I can put on another
girl who will make faster use of the

Nell answered. Miss Pettlt could not
know that the girl had had no break
fast. There had been medicine to buy,
and until pay day came again she
would have to walk to her home and
make dry bread nerve for food.
She was slow In preparing Tor the
street find even Miss Pettlt IihiI gone
when she stepped Into the elevator.
The street was dark and lonesome.
Most of the places closed at ", and
persons moving along
the narrow strip of sidewalk as she
Stepped out. j
On the comer a little knot of people
had gathered about some object of
Interest, and she peered curiously over i
the shoulder of the office boy In front I
or her. ine next moment she was
pushing the men aside.
Miss Pettlt had slipped upon the
greasy sidewalk and lay moaning and
half unconscious with pain. The girls
had all gone on and a bootblack was
trying to make her comfortable until
the attention of a policeman could be
Nell pushed him away and took the
woman's bead Into her lap, disposing
her so that the wretched ankle was
more comfortuble. Then she turned
to the lad who had stuck to her side,
determined to at least share the in
terest with the newcomer.
"It la my forewoman," she said

creasing crowd of curious people to
come to a dead stop, when be perceived
"It's only Miss Pettlt," be growled
In mingled relief and disappointment.
"I thought It waa you."
"We must get her home, Jimmy,"
pleaded Nell. "She says she won't go
In an ambulance. Please call a cab."
"The ambulance la plenty good for
her," be growled, though to them the
ambulance was but a shade less dis
graceful then the patrol wagon. "Did
not she talk to you like you were a dog
this afternoon 7"
"Get a cab tor me," pleaded Nell,
and Jimmy turned away.
It was not far to Miss Pettlt's board
ing place, and Nell bustled about mak
ing the tiny hall room more comfort
able. Jimmy stuck doggedly, too, wait
ing to take Nell home. Miss Pettlt
sank back on the bed with a sigh.
"That will do very well," she said
faintly. '"The doctor will bandage my

Many Boards of Trads Are Employing
Nswspsper Men as Secretaries How
to Boom Your Town by Co-operation
With the Newspsper Man.
Town booming by publicity bureau
methods Is Incoming more and more
popular because it pays. No town Is
too small or, for that matter, too
law to be iK'tiellled by organized pub
licity. A town that keeps its light
under a bushel Is not going to I seen
from afar. One way to make its light
.shine brightly Is to rub the burners
every day with fresh advertising oil.
The city of Naslr. i!!e. l emi., Is one
of the latest in the increasing list of
lively places that intend to get livelier
still and are taking the best method
to bring alioiit that consummation.
The Nashville Uwrd of trade lias ap
propriated .",I,00( to advertise the city.
Tills Is how the money will be spent:
First A compilation of n directory
of the names of every northern manu
facturer whose goods are sold to Nash
ville retailors, jobliers or consumers.
Second. The opening of correspond
ence with each of these firms, the num
ber of which Is estimated at 700, with
a view to securing either the removal
of the main plant to Nashville or the
establishment of a branch factory,
southern warehouse or southern sales
office In Nashville.
Third. The sending diiily of from COO
to (WO copies of each of the dally pa
pers to every reading room, library,
hotel and other public reading place In
the northeastern states, with a view
to familiarizing the regular and chance
visitors to these places with the city
of Nashville and creating favorable
Impressions regarding the city, its ad
vantages and business possibilities.
Fourth. The extensive advertising of
the city In dully newspapers In the
northeast and New England states, In
the magazines of general and special
circulation and In the weekly papers,
with a view to attracting the attention
of the capitalist and the Industrial man
to the advantages offered by Nashville
as the location for factory or other
In commenting on the course of Nash
ville and on town advertising In gener
al the Editor and Publisher, a New
Tork weekly, says editorially: "Many
boards of trado and chambers of com
merce throughout the country are em
ploying experienced newspaper men
as secretaries, and In many cases the
wisdom of tbls course has been shown.
Publicity counts every time, and with
a trained newspaper man In the har
ness many a aleepy board of trade
might be roused from Its lethargy."
The local paper Itself Is one of the
best publicity bureaus a town can have,
and when It Is supplemented by an offi
cial bureau of publicity In which the
editor Is a working factor Its value
Is enhanced. The local paper, carrying
advertisements of the home merchants
ana other business met), Is a constant
advocate of home trade as opposed
to the spending of money outside
of the town. Reporting, as It does,
all town Improvements from time to
time nnd pointing out opportunities for
Investment and development, the home
paper Is a free Information bureau
which Is not always appreciated prop
erly In Its own community. But any
town may greatly Increase Its valuable
publicity by orgunlzlug a bureau to co
operate with the newspapers In boom
ing the place.
