LOVE ON THE CORNER By M. QUAD Copyrisbt, ISIS, by Associated XJt- erary Press. A RUNAWAY' Having been informed that the shoestring man at the comer of Broadway | and White street had had a difficulty j vritti. the peanut woman at the corner 1 of Broadway and Leonard and tUat | they were no longer on speaking rernis, | I ·\rent '6 s rer "there the otner day in. hopes to bring about a reconciliation. 1 tnongut to see the ·woman, first, bat half a .square away I. met my old friend Bibs, the umbrella mender, and vrbeu he was informed of my errasd be said: -It's a great idea and one worthy of the twentieth ceutury, bat it is too IMMY was very, very lonely, so lonely that he almost cried. A bi? U«y of ^evea aa«l a schoolboy as we'! can'r rcM'iy. truly cry. -Hm:sy did bare a good reason for cry»is~ Mammo, the best and dearest of a!i ·food, dear ui-iujiuss had gene away never to to:ae 5a.U.

I then changed the p'an and t»e slioestrins man first You, who know him only by sight, may take him for a tumble and docile citizen, baring neither spirit, pride nor am- bitioa. But such is far from being the case. ·TTes. sir; it is true," he replied ·when I told him I fcal heard of tbe rupture. "Tor seven long years I have been the warm friend of the peanut woman, but now all is over between us. I shall always respec-t her as a lady, but we can never be friends again. The relations between us are not strained, but entirely severed.'' "But what caased tlie rupture"" "Well, I can't just say. though it's perhaps owing to Ribs, the umbrella man- more than anything: else- There is a man. sir. you would do well to look out for- I don'r say tbac he can't mend a broken umbrella as good as rhe next, or that he would overcharge yon, but socially he's fell of under- banded, ways."' "\Vhy. I thonirht Ribs such a nice man that I treated him to a milk slwke down in Chambers street yesterday." "Look out for him. sir. T am sure be made all the trouble between me aud the peanut wosuan."* '-Now, honest Injnii, were you and the peanut woman a little sweet on each other before Kibs came into the field to make trouble?"' "You may call it that. sir. I ca-Ieu her Annie "and she called me Charlie, and I expect she a bit lonesome it I didn't show up three or four times a dav. It was me who wheeled her cart across Broadway "twice a day for her; 1 -watched the papers to see if peanuts -went up or down: I turned the roaster for her -when my own trade was slack, and for the last five years her shoestrings have not cose her u penny. I ·understand that 5he"-caiae out with button shoes yesterday to show that she could get along Without me-"' "How long ago did* Bibs come "into the affair?". , v ; _"-·" . "About three" mosths-sir-"It wasn't a -week after "he put in^thrjae rib.- in. an umbrella for her -without charging a cent that I bccan to .observe a-eaange in her. She no ionjrer called n.e Charlie; she ·look'eff' at me'coldly.

These pictures are'now for the first time reproduced in color, this being made possible by recent Inventions and improvements In color plate making processes, which enable the four color separations to be made direct from the wails at one exposure of the camera, while a perfect full color copy obtained by the Lumiere color photography process was taken Into the engraving room as s. guide In making the printing plates so as to reproduce even the most delicate shades of the artist's original. The only reproductions hitherto obtainable were carbon photographs which have sold In art stores for $7.50 for each picture. At a great expense, greater than was ever before undertaken by; airy newspaper,the PUBLIC LEDGER has arranged:to reproduce these paintings, iri-full color^on fine plate paper and include them as Supplements to the Sunday Issue. On Sunday, December 14th, the first of these Supplements will be issued, which will include six of the fifteen pictures. The remaining nine pictures will be Issued as Supplements with the seven successive issues of the Sunday TfUBLIC LEDGER. The price of the Sunday PUBLIC LEDGER containing these supplements will be. as usual, 5 cents. ~ A limited edition of 125,000 copies Has been ordered, and no more can belhad when this supply is exhausted. To make sure that your news agent will be able to supply you, place your order with him now. Or. eight weeks, by mail, postpaid, "40 cents, with the order.
