Page 7 MELVIN JOHNSON, Inc., Publishers Saturday Morning, September 24, 1938 MAIDEN EFFORT By SAMUEL HOPKINS ADAMS e SAMUEL HOPKINS ADAMS WNU SERVICE Bearing his burden through the rain, the guest settled down to serious perusal. It was pretty awful, he decided. Yet through the murk and fume of hifalulin verbiage there thrust the structure of an authentic and lively, if somewhat threadbare, plot. Whether it was salable or not, the reader lacked any basis of judgment. It did not matter. He had something else in mind. Martin Holmes was going to get his much- needed vacation if strategy, flattery, and a little judicious mendacity could bring it about. It was mid-afternoon when Kelsey trotted back to the house with Flossie the Flop beneath his arm. "Loud cries of 'Author! Author!'" said he. "Have I at last found my Public?" demanded Holmes satirically. "I've read it all. And I really think you've got something." The author regarded him with affectionate pity. "Then all I have to say is that as an editorial reader you're a rising young architect." "Nuts to architecture I I'm ofl it for a couple of months, by orders. As my naturally active intellect has to have something to bite on, I've decided to go in for literary speculation." He tapped the manuscript. "I'm buying." "You've bought. Hand over the nickel." "No; I'm serious. I'm buying, for five hundred dollars." "You're crazy." "All right. I'm crazy. But my check isn't." '-'You offer to pay me five hundred dollars for this thing? Say it again." "Five hun--" "Never mind. I'm convinced. What's in your mind to do now?" "Well, I can see quite a little Â·work to be done on it." "Rewrite me, huh?" The author laughed shortly. "You can't hurt my feelings." "There's another point. Most of the action is local." "Correct. Laid right here In the Finger Lakes district." "I feel that I can work better right here on the spot." "That's reasonable." "So I'll give you another hundred for the rent of the house. But I don't want you around. You're too noisy. And too nervous. You'd be a disturbing element. Hope you don't mind my saying so." Holmes cackled. "All right, old bean. Rub it in. I can stand it. You couldn't hold me with a log- chain, anyway. I'm off for the deep blue sea and way stations by the first boat, which ought to be about tomorrow. Mind you, about that story: you're buying a stoomer. I may never again be able to look you square in your sweet and simple-minded lace, but I'm just too tired to resist your subtle temptations. You've bought something." "I think so," answered Kelsey contentedly. "You've bought a whole bag of tricks. Not only several pounds of typewritten glub, but a name and personality to go with it Templeton Sayles, seignior of the magnificent estate of Holmesholm. That's you, my lad, till further notice. Exit Mr. Kelsey Hare, rich and once respectable young architect. Enter Templeton Sayles, and believe me he's some personage to live up to. Wait a minute. I got up a character sketch of my other self to go with the manuscript in case it was accepted. That was a condition oi the contest. I made Templeton out a devil of a feller. It ought to be in the manuscript somewhere. No? Too bad. It might have helped you to a fuller realization of who you are." "Maybe you modeled him on the hero of your story, Maiden Featherston. There's a chap I I can fairly see him in a noble pose, bugling forth, his battle-cry: 'I know all about women.' That flu attack left me with a sort of low and melancholic opinion of myself. I need a new character to build up my self- esteem and Featherston's the lad for me." "O. K. You've bought him, too. Mr. Templeton Sayles." "About Sayles, now. You haven't left any loose ends of him dangling around, .have you? Any secret commitments of lovelorn ex-maidens? He's got to come before this court with clean hands. And I've got to have full control of him from now on." "He's all yours. I resign any right, title or claim on him. My word is my bond that I'll never admit to any connection with such a person. Too bad we can't find that autobiographical skit of mine, though. Very spirited. I've goi to pack. Hi! You!" Responsive to this summons, a creature swarthy,. squat, and hairy appeared. Martin Holmes' combination cook, valet, maid, gardener, and man-of-all-work had been acquired from a bread line. His nan.' was approximately Glunk. His na Uonality was conjectured to be Patagonian because, as his employer pointed out, nothing less was compatible with the essential improbability of his personality. "Listen, you," Holmes addressed him. "I leave tomorrow for a couple ol months. Understand?" "Urgck." "Good lad. Mr. Hare--I mean Mr. Templeton Sayles, here is your bow till I come back. Get it?" "Urgck." "Correct Pack my things." "Just a second." expostulated the tenant. -MOW am i going 10 Know what he means?" "That's easy. Whatever he says always means 'yes* until he says something else. You'll be a couple of pals in no time. I'm off by the late train. Heaven send you luck with Flossie the Flop. And don't do anything that Templeton Sayles would be ashamed of." Thus began Kelsey Hare's new life as an author. All adult persons with enough education to read and write cherish the ineradicable belief that they can write fiction. Contemplating the manuscript of "Love Beyond Sin," the new Templeton Sayles decided that he might as well carry out the bluff he had made to the real author and have a crack at it. The first reminder of his altered personality came on the morning following his friend's departure, in the form of a night-letter addressed "Templeton Sayles, Esq., Moldavia, N. Y." Hoping to hoar from Holmes in New York and get some address to which he could forward the message; he stuck it upon the mantel, unopened. When no such information arrived, he forgot all about it. An envelope similarly addressed, which arrived on the second morning, he did open, since it was in Martin Holmes' own handwriting. Within was the newspaper photograph of the girl whom they had discussed, with a typed inscription across it: "Miss Adelina Ashcan, K. M., the Park Avenue debutter. For inspiration in your monumental work. I don't need her any longer. --M. H. "P. S. In case of visitors, of which you are likely to have some, don't let them scare you out of your character." T : 'Â° new-fledged Templeton Sayles lumped the pictured girl into the waste basket. Thence, .on his cleaning rounds, Glunk rescued her, and set her on the mantel. His new boss caught him at it. "Do you like that picture, Glunk?" "Urgck." "Why?" "Nice gal." "My information points in quite another direction. However, leave her. She can slay there as long as she doesn't interfere with my work." In his fresh absorption, the newborn Templeton Sayles forgot her as completely as he had the night letter which she now completely concealed.
