SIXTY-FIVE SHORT STORIES
EDITOR, MEN nnd successful authr-- al
ways ndvlse young hopefuls to write lovo
stories. "Play up tho lovo Btuff" they relt-
orato with a wise nlr. And rending the maga
zines casually, you get n notion in tho back
of your head that lovo stories swing about 90
ler cent, of tho space. Hut, llko many other
popular impressions, this Is Incorrect.
Of 65 fiction stories In 11 current magazines
only 11 nro regular orthbdox lovo stories 17
Per cent. Tho next most astonishing fact Is
that there aro Just as many stories about
married pcoplo as there are about lovers
another 17 per cent. Of courso, In an Ideal
state, a story with a mnn and his wlfo for
hero and heroine might bo n love story, too,
but In fiction, as In life, this Is rarely tho case.
So tho 11 mnrrlcd pcoplo stories are chiefly
about alienations and flirtations and recon
ciliations, and various relations.
Tho next most popular class of story Is the
boy story, nnd there aro eight of these, rang
ing from 17-year-old William Sylvester Bax
ter, hitherto Invulnerable and scornful, writ
ing a lovo poem to a beautiful unknown
whom he has has Just passed on tho vlllago
street (1) to 7-ycnr-old Lester, whoso artist
parents neglected him, and who advertises In
tho paper for a home (2). Surprisingly
enough, thero are only threo war stories. It
seems to take time for tho war atmosphero
to pcrmcalo tho divine afflatus.
Tho serlnl stories are In a class by them
selves, because they require a distinct class
of renders, temperaments compounded of Just
tho right degree of courage. Impetuosity, pa
tience, pcrsovcranco and spare time. Thero
are 12 In the 11 magazines.
Tho most prolific magazlno writer nt tho
moment Is easily Booth Tarklngton. He Is
writing more of his famous Penrod stories
In the Cosmopolitan, and a series about an
older boy, aged 17, In tho Metropolitan. Ho
also has a grown-up serial In Harper's. Tho
next busiest man Is John Galsworthy, with a
new serial In Scrlbners, a charming little
desert sketch, also in Scrlbner's, and a "Lovo
Letter to France" In the Atlantic Monthly.
To sum up tho 65 stories, their main sub
jects may bo classified as follows:
11 Married people.
C Dotectlvo and mystery.
4 Psychological analyses.
Tho news Item of tho month In magazlno
fiction circles Is easily the marriage of Emma
McChesney, which occurs In the Cosmopoli
tan (3). For several years readers of Edna
Fcrber stories have followed the fortunes of 1
this clover young business woman, who, by
a combination of hard work and breezy
charm, was flooding tho Middle West with
Featherbloom petticoats. Tho "old man" of
tho firm died, and his son, an attractlvo but
pampered young chap, did not have the call
bro to step Into his father's place, so that
Emma McChesney was virtually "boss" of
the T. A. Buck Featherbloom Petticoat Com
pany, when she went to South America for a
four months' tour Introducing Foathorblooms,
On her return she found to her surprlso that
young T. A. Buck had somehow risen to tho
responsibilities which camo to him In her
absence, and It wr- with a pang of Jealousy
at first that she deferred to him but let
Edna Ferbcr tell about It. Emma and Buck
aro sitting In front of the flro In her apart
ment, having dined together there; Emma
"T. A., I I want to tell you that I know
I've been nctlng the cat over since I got home
from South America, and found that you had
taken charge. You see, you had spoiled me.
The thing that has happened to me Is the
thing that always happens to those who as
sume to be dictators. I Just want you to
know now that I'm glad and proud and happy
because, you havo como Into your own."
Buck sat silent for a moment. Then:
"I had to do It Emma." She looked up.
"You have n wonderful brain," said Buck
then, and the two utterances seemed con
nected In his mind. "Tho example you set
accomplished this; It wasn't I."
Compliments seemed to bring no great sat
isfaction to the woman to whom ho addressed!'

them, however. Sho thanked him dryly, tm
women do when their brain is dragged Inter
an Intlmata conversation,
"But," said Duck, and suddenly stood tiv
"It Isn't for your mind that 1 lovo you Ihr
minute. I lovo you for your eyes, Emma, and
for your mouth you havo tho tendftrest,
most womanly sweet mouth In th6 world
and for your hair, and tho way your chin
curves. I lovo you for your throat line, and
for tho way you walk and talk and sit, and
for tho way you look at me, and for tho Way
you don't look at me."
Ho reached down and gathered Emma Mo
Chcsney, tho alert, tho aggressive, tho capo
bio, Into his nrms, quite as men gather the
cllnglngest kind of woman. "And now sup
pose you tell mo Just why and how1 yoy
And Emma McChesney told him.
There Is plenty of quaint philosophy In a
Homeburg story by George Fitch in tho
American Magazlno (4). It is a monologue
by ono of Homoburg's old Inhabitants, who la
visiting In Now York city:
"That's where you havo all the luck, Jim
you big city folks. You keep your interesting
pcoplo nt homo; thero's nowhere bigger for
them to go. No matter how successful or
famous thoy are, they have to stick around
nnd mingle, unless they get Europltln of tho
intellect. When you grow up with a chum
In Now York and he discovers a talent that
has been kicking around in his garret over
since ho was born, you don't loso him. IIo
Just stays homo and grows up to fit tho town.
But when I want to see my old Homeburg
playmates that have succeeded, I have to go
to Now York, or Chicago, or San Francisco,
or somo big placo whero old Opportunity
keeps a wrecking crow busy all tho time
beating In doors. Opportunity doesn't cdmo
into a Bmall town and knock. Ho stands out
side nnd beckons."
There is a charming vision of maiden ten
derness and shyness In a fragment from a
young girl's diary, when lovo first came to
her. It Is from Galsworthy's Berial, "Tho
Froelands," in Scrlbners (5):
"Tho noxt day was the thunderstorm. I
novcr saw lightning so near and didn't care
a bit. If ho wero struck, I knew I should
be; that made it all right. When you lovo
you don't care, If only tho something must
happen to you both. When it was over, and
we camo out from behind tho stacks and
walked homo through tho fields, all tho
bensts looked at us as If wo wero new and
had never been seen beforo; and tho air won
over so sweet, and that long red lino of cloud,
low down In tho purple, and the elm trees
so heavy and almost black. Ho put his arm
around me, and I let him."
Go, Day, thou restless rover;
Forever vain thy quest
To match my heart's solo guest;
Thero's nothing to discover
Till he returns my loverl
And Night, thy starry skies,
Mysterious and splendid.
With dread and beauty blended.
Affright mo sore, who am not wise,
Unless I dream of his dear eyes.
Sootho, Time, thy changing chime;
When ho is far my heart!
How tedious thou art!
When ho Is near, thero Is no rime '
To compass thy glad fleetness. Timet
