HOW HE BECAME A STORY WRITER,
lllehard Malcolm Johnston Tnlks of His
Cueer uud Karl; KflorU.
Richard Malcolm Johnston's sketches of
rural life in Georgia have beeu among tbe
moat delightful contributions to current
magujur literature. Col. Johnston for
ho bears that title is tall and elderly, his
hair and mustache being white, but his
eye ia clear, his manner gracious, and he is
the most ontertaiuiug talker, his speech
having a rich southern tlavor. He was
with James Whitooiiib Itiley when the re
porter came upon him at the Deuisou
House, and that gentleman kindly gave his
ussistunce to draw the colonel out.
'Story writing," said the colonel, "is the
last thiug for me in literature, and I came
to it iu a way ultogetlier accidental. I hod
published two or three volumes on hnglnb
literature, and iu conjunction with a
friondhad written tho life of Alexander
Stephens and also a book on American aud
Luropoan literature, but hod no idea of
story writing for money. Two or three
stories of mine found their way into papers
before I left Georgia."
'When was 'Abraham Uillingslea' writ

Oh, that is recent only three years ago.
1 went to Baltimore in lbtiT. I had bum a
professor of English literature iu Georgia,
but during the wax I took u school of forty
boys to Baltimore. There was at Balti

borough Tales' were contributed to that
magazine. These loll into the hands of
the editor of Harper's, who asked mo what
I got for thorn. I said, 'Not a cent, autt
he wanted to know why I bad not sent
them to him. 'Neelus Peeler's Conditions'
was the llrst story for which I got pay. It
was published In The Coutury over the

'Dr Holland told Mr. Gilder to tell that

that he himself had made u mistake iu

urgod me to write, aud sunl that it 1 would

was more greatly rejoiced over the money
than I was, and I'm not a niuuto turn my

that my stories were considered of any

way. 1 am u little surprised yet. I with

have not used myself. Poweltou, Ga., is
Wr Dukouorough. I was born fourteen
miles from there, aud the road lending
down to that place was a rough one. The
first of the 'Dukeboruugh Tales' was the
'(joosetown School.' Of tbe female char
acters that I have crcat!d, Miss Doolana
Lines is my favorite, while Mr. Bill Will
iams is my favorite among the male char
acters. I started Doolana to make her
mean aud stingy like her father, but I
hadn't written u page before she wrenched
herself out of my hands. She said to me
'1 am a woman, and you shall not make
me mean,' and then she just made herself,
and she was like her mother.
"These stories are all of Georgia as it
was before the war. Iu thu hill country
the institution of slavery was very differ

always been near his master; their rela

him aud he loved them, and if a negro
child died upon the place my mother wept
"Some time ago I went to the old place,
and un old negro came eight miles walked
all the way to seo me. He got to the
house before 5 o'clock iu the morning, and
opened the shutters while I was asleep.
With a cry he rushed into the room, 'Oh,
