CSiocfraphtc ashes lCETFACEFAMOUSFOIKj TUESDAY EVENING, mm ALBERT XELSOX MARQUIS fays: "A study of biographic sketches H like uslnit a compass pointing tin way to nuccess. Education, environ - litem and opportunity tell the story of eminent careers." (i . ... Albert Nelson Marquis ' Founder of "Who's Who In Amorlea" One cannot discount the zest and enthusiasm of the man who begins ill lni;. Over twenty years ago 1 met Albert S'tlson Muruuis. who was at that time launching an enterprise which everybody prophesied would meet with failure. He hud conceived the idea of publishing a "Who's Who in America." Beginning the volume in a modest way. that little red book has kept on growing until to - day it bus essmned the proportions of an unabridged dictionary, and, best of nil. it is thoroughly accurate and reliable. Few people realise how much effort is expended in getting the simple facts about eminent people in America for this well thumbed volume. There are usually three facta that people In general want to know about folks when and where they were born, and what they have done. These are the Invariable questions of the inquiring mind. In spite of the sorrowful sympathy of friends at the Mart. Albeit Marquis with characteristic persistence . kept right on making his biographic dictionary 'Who's Who" the best he could make it, issuing a volume eety two years until It has grown to be the largest "Who's Who" in the world a biographic encyclopedia with the total number of pages runnins far into the thousands. The next edition for 1925 and 1926 volume four, teen will approximate twenty - five thousand complete biographies of living men and women In America who have done things. The recent craze, of cross word puzzles has stimulated Interest in dictionaries, and now the biographic cross word puzzles have stimulated Interest in "Who's Who" and encyclopedias. Although wlih a name that sounds French' or English, Albert Nelson . Marquis is a real American, born in Brown county,. Ohio. 1 - eft an orphan at an early age, to the credit of old - fashioned, sterling grandparents, he received a thorough education while . devoting his spare time helping his grandfather in the general store.' After the death of his grandfather, young Albert secured a position in a publishing house In Cincinnati. One day there seemed a prospect of leaving his job and he made up his mind to strike out for himself. He registers his red letter day in Chicago, for there he conceived the plan of a national biographical reference book to be published at regular Intervals. In 1890 he launched his first edition of "Who's Who in America." w ith eight thousand sketches of living leaders. "Who's Who" deals only with those living at the time the records are. made. , When they have passed away there is a reference to a previous "Who's Who" in which appeared the sketch, so that succeeding volumes form a reference library. It is undoubtedly one of th most useful books of reference in the libraries to - day, serving not only as a literary and social register but as a business directory of eminence. Tilting back in his chair Mr. .Marqute commented: i "A study of biographic sketches is like a compass pointing the way to success. They all seem to revolve around formulas of environment, education and opportunity that evolve careers." i Albert Marquis was president of the Hamilton Club of Chicago, the largest Republican Club in the Vnited States, but his one hobby Is the . big book. : He has focused the attention of the world on the interesting and worlh - while achievements of the .'great.: men and . women in America.

Anita Rrturna Alone At last the - llavvk understood why j Anita rontinued to travel about with Cam Clark when she hated and tear - ed him. It was only by submitting to her stepfather's will thut she saved her mother's life. "He's taken Anita with him on some terrible journey," Mrs. Clark told the hawk. "He wouldn't say where it was and I've been waiting day and night for over a week, not knowing what wojld lmppen. it une leaves him o. It's horrible, horrible!" "Where is Clark?" the Hawk asked abruptly. "I don't know," she said. - "They drove on! south." "South:" he repated, "were they going to cross that desert? I wonder what he's up to now." "I shouldn't have Set her go," sighed the woman, and the Hawk suddenly remembered Anita. "I'll go und get her." he ottered. "No don't!" she shuddered. "He'll kill her 'if you do. Just wait Anita will he back."' "What makes you think she'll come bark?" he demanded. "She was getting desperate sobbed the woman. "Just before she left she gave me this pistol, and cocked it. And she told me, ir he came back to hold it hard and pull the trigger. But she lyiiowg 1 can't do it I'm afraid!" She started towards the door, and as the Hawk folio 1 after her she laid her hand on the bolt and looked back. "Please go." she whlsperei?. As the Hawk rode for home he remembered the (lurk spring day When Clark's gunmen had swooped down on the settlors what whs there to keep him from raiding behind the wall, and driving olt his cattle with the rest? The Hawk rode like the wind, but when he reached home nil was quiet and Dull Knife only laughed at his fears. All next morning the Hawk kept his eyes on the rustlers' trail. It came sig - zagging down from one bench to another, a line of white 'against the red of the wall, and along towards noon he saw a horseman, top the rim and come spurring down the shnly slope. "That's Cavey.'" pronounced Dull Knife, looking up. " "Yes. and something has hup - pened." stated the H.twk, Dull Knife burst Into a laugh but when Hooten came galloping towards tlirm lie stopped short and rushed out to meet hlin. "What's the matter. Cavey?" ho culled. "Was It Cheaters?" "Yes, and the murderln' scm - of - a - goat killed Cub l.ee!" rrkd Hooten. "Looky hero what they did to my hondr , His grizzled head drooped nnrt as they led hint into the cabin the tears ran down his cheeks. "Cub put, up a goood fight,' he said, "but Uv'k was iirfln him. J'oor Cub, I loved him like a son." lie sMt down on tnc ixn wnlle th llnwk bound up his hand and Dull Knife poured out some strong coffee and (hen, straightening up, .he hmped out and mounted his horse' and galloped away towards town. "Well whnl'H wc do?" demanded the Hawk.' "Walt here," and. answered Dull Knife, "until Cnvey gits back, They's Doing to be hell over this." They waited,, gatnertng spare horses for the posse to ride and rooking bread and meat to take with them: and the Hawk was Impatlcnt - v wstchlng the rond when he saw Clark's team of grays round thpolnt. But this time. Instead of Clark wilh Anita beside him, there was only the trim figure In blue. Hfie had left Old Cheaters, at last. Half standing In her seat she brought th. grays to a stop, and the Hawk ran nut to meet her; but Dull Knife, looking nut, merely grunted to himself and went back to make more bread. Anita Morgard'lge loked pale snd drawn, hut as th. llnwk held up his hands she smiled and Jumped out Into his arms. "I'm so glad." she sighed. "I wan afraid you might be gone. Ifav you heard shout him? Mr. Clark?" "YeSb" nodded the Hawk, releasing snd tlng the grays to a tree. "Sit down you're nil tired out." I drove clear from ie rnttrt.1 The Hawk shook his head, and sat down. "I guessed It, though," he answered moodily. "They've killed two of Hooten's men, already." . 'Cavey came through here a while ago with his hand all shot up and said they killed Cub Lee. He's gone down to rouse the settlers." "O you aren't going with him?" she gasped "Why, sure," he smiled. "Why not?" , , "But you might get killed!" she protested. "Don't think so." he said. "But poor old Cavey feels awful bad said he loved Cub Lee like a son." "I wish you wouldn't go," she coaxed, after a silence. "He's hired some desperate men and they get fifty dollars all around for every rustler they kill. Can't you stay away this time for me?" She glanced up at him appealingly but the Hawk did not answer he remembered what Cavey had done for him. When lie was ;u distress, with his cowboys dead for sleep und the night with its stampedes coming on. Cavey Hooten and his rustlers had ridden to ills rescue and saved Ills steers froip Clark. Could he refuse, to do as much for Cavey? lie had not promised him it was taken fot granted. "We're waiting for tne seiners, ' he said. "I believe you .like to fight," she recused w.th sudden heat. "That's; why I hate him he's a killer." i "Yes. he's a killer, and a cowardly j .one. too. Your mother said he even threatened you. Well. If somebody doesn't go, In and - put an end to this " "1 don't want you to go," she shuddered. "You don't know you1 wouldn't believe how he hates you. j He's offered his men a thousand dollars reward and the first one that sees you will shoot." "Yes, and I'll shoot, too!" returned the - Hawk.' "He's taken the worst of all those gunmen he had and 1 heard him telling Connolly what they'd do. They're going to kill every man that they meet In the trail until they get to your NA cows." "Then they'll have to kill me," stated the Hawk. "Hut why can't you open your fence und drive the cattle down on the plains again? You Know tneyll Lie perfectly safe. Aren't you ever, ever, satisfied?" - "Not when they talk lik that I'm not. The man never Uvea that could tell me to give the trail, and I'll light for my rights till I die." "Do oou want to get killed?" she asked. "No, I've got too much to live for and especially since you came up here hut I'll tell you Just exactly how I feel. Cavey fnoten has been my friend, he's done me favors time und again, and I can't go back on ti I in now. When I was about to lose my steers hcrode down and helped me save them and Cub Lee and Hilly helped, too. In the oIH days my father was a Texas ranger and they never turned their back on friend or foe. Those days are gone now, but I try to live up to them, and If I die I'll go down lighting." She sat beside hlin brooding, gazing vacantly Into space, until at last she rose up reluctantly. "Well, good - bye, then," she said. "I'm sorry." "Sorry for what, ne neinnnned, stnrtlcd. She met his eyes then but she did not answer. "You know," she replied at last. "I'm sorry we enn't be friends." "Yes, but w are friends!" he pro. tested. "You're the best friend I've got my whole world moves uround you I" "No," she said, a glint of anger In her eyes, "you think more of Cavey Hooten." ' . , '.'Yes, I do!" she returned, starting to untie her, horses, "and 1 never knew a Texan yet that wasn't a killer at heart, Jhat' all. you think about killing!"
