So he employed one of the papers native printers to work out of hours, got the verses up in galley proofs and bound them in an oblong, wire-stitched docket made in imitation of an official government brown paper envelope even to the address "to all heads of depart- ncnts and government officials." The whole was tied with a piece of red The public followed him there- scores of American tourists in the summer and his countrymen all the year round. He struggled against their importunities for two years, then went with his family for a visit to America.

In 1882 he returned to India, and for seven years was nn ink-splashed sub-editor on- papers at Lahore and Allahabad, gaining fame in the country by writing 011 tlie side army ballads and tales of British life in India. Then he pulled up stakes and tried America. ' He landed in San Francisco in 188U and for the next two years made his way slowly across the continent, trying to find n place on American papers. He later said he always „„, rebuffed without n chance to Mate his qualifications. In 1891 he sailed for England and almost starved in a London garret until he found a publisher for a new edition of "Plain Tales From the Hills." It and his trunkful of India pamphlets, books and poems sold like hot cakes. Money permitted him to indulge the wanderlust that had driven him from India and in 1892 he roamed Ceylon, Australia and the United States. HI?.

Deaf to Publishers' Plaints Reply post-cards, containing announcement of the ''book" on one section and an order blank on the other, were mailed -up and down British Asia from Aden to Singapore and from Quetla lo Colombo. It was a case of "cash with the order" and as the edition was sold out in a few weeks, the rupees that poured in by mail went direct into the pocket of the author. Recalling the profits in after years, Kipling said that recollection of them "has since prevented me from injuring my health by sympathizing with publishers who tall ol their risks and the cost of thei advertisements."

The New World! It danced before his eyes as it had danced before the eyes of gold-hungry men in the days of '49. But a swift disillusionment greeted him. He already was famous in India, but San Francisco had never heard of him. Legend tells that when he tried to get a job as a reporter on the old San Francisco Call, the editor took one look at the shy, stumbling, near-sighted youth and sent him in headlong flight. Darkness Before the Dawn Dark months followed. His shining enthusiasm dimmed under the buffetings of book publishers and newspaper editors from San Francisco to New York and in "The Light That Failed" he told of those bitter days. Utterly disheartened, he went on to England in 1891, toiled in a parrel until he sold three stories for ?15, anc the slim strength of tha d MacMillan anc ublish an edition o long career was why he never was named poet laureate of England.

Youths and grownups alike relished the tang of such Kipling phrases as ••you squidgy-nosed old idol, Gunga Din!"—and although the formal honor I of poet laureateship never came to him, he was hailed everywhere as "the poet of empire." Moreover, he was the first Englishman to receive the Nobel prize for literature, which he was awarded in 90T. The selection came as a bombshell to those critics who had accused urn of everything from jingoism to lack journalistic assaults on the hallowed heights of Parnassus.

The sorrowing father L-ndowed a perpetual fund for sounding at Loos "last post," the British equivalent of "laps-," and he never forgave the Germans.
