Submitted in The Tribune's Short Story Contest.
THE NOI8T clIck-clHcIc and
Jar of rapidly revolving
machinery, settlnu tho
whole building lit sym
pathetic vibration, suddenly
ceased. The last ropy of
the last edition of the Stan
hope Tress had been run off
and the editors room which had been
filled with the nolse.i comlner up from
the presses In tho basement, vns Rllcnt
now save for the chatter of the car
riers as they received their papers for
distribution. Two boys were seated In
tho editor's room this Saturday morn
ing, and as tho number for tho week
was now off their hands, tho rest of
the day could bo spent in Inactivity.
"I have my suspicions of that fel
low, Archer," one was saying, "and If
I were you I'd keep my eyes pretty
closely on hltn."
"Journalistic courtesy and nil that
thing may be all right, but when It
comes to a man like Betts being tho
prime mover In the courtesy business,
and to a paper like tho Herald, I draw
the line. When did you say you ex
pected your father home?"
"Tonight, and I think I .shall tell
him of Belts' doings. Lenry. our fnn
man, told me this morning that we
very nearly missed our publication
day. because Betts loaned a whole font
of brevier to the Herald people."
"He did. did he! Jlmlny! Tho Herald
people will be asking the press to .sus
pend publication for a few days, nest,
that they may get a better foot-hold
The Stanhope Press was owned and
edited by Archer Trovford, sr., and
was the oldest established weekly
newspaper In Stanhope, Pa. The pres
ent proprietor had been In possession
only a few months, having purchased
It from Its founder, and paying two
thirds cash for It. Editor Trevford
was a man of literary culture and
good business tact, and at once pro
ceeded to make a live sheet out of the
steady, easy-going Press. Richard
Betts, the assistant-editor Tinder the
former management, had been rc
taintd, and It was of him that tho
two soys had just been talking.
He was young from his appearance,
although very little was known of him
since his first arrival in Stanhope.
Attending strictly to his business, he
had won the confidence of Mr. Trov
ford. who had now gone on an excur
sion of editors to Now York, leaving
Betts In charge of the publication for
that week. Archer Trevford, jr., was
the only son of the editor, while his
bosom friend, Allan Dorn, who had
just spoken his mind ahout Betts, was
tile son of Lawyer Dorn, one of the
leading citizens of tho town.
Two mouths ago, a stranger had ap
peared on tho streets of Stanhope, and
Saturday's Press had duly announced
that Mr. Bent1y Blckford, of Boston,
was a btlsiness visitor in town.
The stranger had several Interviews
with tho president of the local water
company and several of the officials of
the Oirard Saving bank, and at the
end of three weeks, tho good people
of Stanhope found another local paper
in their hands, having a flaring title
page, announcing that the Stanhope
Herald, publishing all the news, would
be published every Saturday there
after by the Herald Publishing Co.
The astcundetl world of Stanhope then
looked on with evident satisfaction at
the efforts made by the rival papers
to "scot,-." each other. It was at this
time that Archer Trevford, Jr., and his
chum were aroused by the conduct of
the assistant editor. Dorn had bare
ly ceased speaking when Betts slopped
into the room, "flood afternoon, Ar
cher. How to do Dorn? How's every
thing?" said Betts tilting his hat on
the back of his head, and dropping
into a chair where he began to run
his eye over some exchanges.
"All right. I guess" said Archer.
"But say, Betts, what provision have
you made for next week's paper?"
"Why? What's that to you?" said
Betts, pursing up his lips and com
mencing to whistle, while he appeared
deeply absorbed In the paper before
him. Archer's facn turned red and It
was -with difficulty ho restrained him
self. Stepping over to a position
where he could see Bett's face, he
answered firmly. "I think it my busi
ness to look after my father's interests
during his absence."
"O come now," exclaimed Betts
springing up, "I don't propose to hold
nyself accountable to an under ago
son of my employer," and pushing his
hat firmly down on the bulldlngfeeugd
hat firmly down on his head ho left
the office and tho building.
"I believe he's gone over to the Her.
aid people sure this time," said Dnrln
echoing the thought In Archer's mind
and deepening tho look of concern on
"Don't you think the whole thing Is
a scheme to cripple tho Tress as much
as they can?" suggested Dnrln. Arch
ed did not reply but looking at his
watch, ho remarked, "guess we will
close up for today," nnd the two were
soon on the street. As they walked
along, Archer suddenly grasped his
friend's arm nnd said "Allan I nm go
ing to New York and see father, so
that If necessary he may bring an as
sistant editor to take Bett's- place.
Please tell mother, nnd with this was
soon hurrying off. An hour later, he
was entering tho hotel where ho knew
his father usually stopped when in the
city and was Inquiring of the clerk
whether Mr. Archer Trevford was
stopping there. "Yes ho Is stopping
here. A large party reghftere'cl to
gether" said tho clerk. "Where can I
find him?" said Archer. "Very doubt
ful," tho clerk went on, "I saw them
buying tickets for tho ball game nt
our news stand." Archer thought that
the game must now bo over so ho sat
down ho wondered why his father had
gone lo tho ball game. He remem
bered his mother saying that father
wa "run-down" from the oloso con
fining work he had been doing in com
peting with the rival paper, and he
thought perhaps tho excitement would
prove a benefit to him. As time pass
ed Archer at last saw the familiar
form of his father, who was In the
center of an enthusiastic party dis
cussing the ball game.
It was with surprise he saw his son,
and as Archer drew him to one side
and told the story of Betts' conduct,
his face became very grave. "I have
every confidence In Betts," Mr. Trev
ford Bald, "but I know of an excellent
young man who will bo glad to ac
company, us back." thus showing he
also had considerable confidence in his
ion. That evening, Bert Becbce, a
plcttant looking young fellow, board
td the train In company with Mr,
Trevford and his son, all bound for
flontiopo. Tbt young man wa highly
pleased with tho idea of starting a
journalistic career and talked gaily of
his plans. As the party nearcd their
destination, Archer noticed the fever
ish look In his father's eyes nnd hlrf
fast and Incessant talk. The homo
trip was mndc without Incident, how
ever, and Archer was glad when his
mother met thorn at the door.
But the worst was to come, for that
night. Mr. Trovford became delirious
and u hasty examination by tho doctor
who had been called, showed that
brain fever would necessitate every
precaution to be used to keep tho sick
man quiet. As Archer busied his
brain during tho retnnlnder of the
night about the welfare of the Press,
ho at last came to tho conclusion that
If Betts did not show up on Monday
morning he would assume the editor
ship of the paper with the assistance
of Beebcc. He was quite dubious
nbout tho task, but felt that he know
the Ins nnd outs of the business better
ban a stranger, and ns he thought
over the matter Sunday, his convic
tions became stronger that he could
run the paper until his father would
be again nblo to resume his duties.
Accordingly on Monday morning Ar
cher snt in the editor's chair and as
the day passed "pleased oven himself
at the success ho mot with in dis
patching of the matter coming to his
By Friday lie had written six small
editorials, the column of personal
mention, nil the local happenings nnd
the summary of the week's news
while Bcliee had written nearly a col
umn of humorous paragraphs under
the title of "Bright and Breezy." and
his "Press Pointers" and an editorial
written In a happy strain on the
weather, filled another column.
As Archer had expected, Betts did
not turn up, and on Saturday he
learned that the editor of the Herald
was" now Richard Botts.
The foreman of the Press made up
the forms Friday night nnd found ho
had enough. So it was with surprise
eiiily Saturday morning that Archer
heard Lenry the foreman, come into
the office and say "Mr. Archer, we've
got a column to fill up yet."
"Why, how's that I.eary?" said Ar
cher. "Didn't wo cast up tho forms
last night and find we had enough?"
"Yes sir, I know wo did " said Leary
nervously. "But Mr. Whcaton has
left orders since hearing of tho serious
illness of your father, to have his ad.
stopped. You know ho always run a
column." Archer shut bis mouth
tightly "since his father's illness "lie
saw now, "Well, Lenry, I'll try and
see what I can do.
"Will it be all right If the forms arc
locked up by 10 o'clock?"
"Why, yes, sir," said Leary.
"Good! I'll begin right away. Send
for tho copy in ten minutes."
When the foreman had gone away.
Archer began vainly to think of some
thing to write. The space was on the
local page and It was Imperative the
matter should be original. This
was to be bis test number of the pa.
per or otherwise he might have told
I.eary to chip matter from ono of the
oM'hnngCR nnd give credit. But all
such nrllt'lcs were usually printed on
the outside pages, and already this
number contained a great sufficiency
01 them. As he sat gazing upward, as
if looking for inspiration, and violent
ly biting the pen between his tooth, a
thought finally .-.truck him. Jumping
up from his chair he paced the room
for a few minutes nnd then seizing his
pen began to write with feverish
haste. He was ready for tho cry
"copy," and without looking up wrote
with his blue pencil over the top of
the page, "set In brevier." Then ho
plunged Into the second page. Three
pages were finished when ho struck a
snag in the form of his invention giv
ing out. In vain he stormed and
rumpled his hair, and it was not until
the copy boy made his appearance
that he again set to work. So It went
for nearly an hour and Archer was
now thoroughly absorbed In bis writ
ing. It' was the first chapter of a
story he was writing to bo
run in tiorlnl form. Already he
had planned his flrt "leave off."
Hut. alas' He was only half through
lo tills point when I.eary again came
Into tho oniee with the Information
that tlvre was not another line of
brevier In the cases. And still there
was nearly a quarter of a column yet
to fill. The tears sprang to Archer's
eyes. It seemed as though alt tho an
noyances to come for years had been
centered on him at tills one nccaslon.
And ho hnd fondly Imagined that hav
ing considered the Idea of a serial
story. All that was necessary to fill
the column was Ideas, and now to
think that he should be Interfered
with by such a thing as iinsufllclent
type. "Haven't you got anything
cb-e?" he asked seriously. "No sir,"
was tho reply, "You see losing so
many ndn, nnd filling the places with
reading matter has made a big drain
on tho typcj-cases. The only hlti
we've got Is a case of Italics."
"But it would not look very well to
licvo the same article set with two
kinds of type." went on Leary. No!
that's so, but I will put tho rest of my
chapter for this week In the form of
an important letter that was found.
VTonldfl't that be all right?" "Per
fectly sir," I.eary, going back to the
composing room. At that moment tho
copy boy came In with a shoot of
proof nnd Beebeo at onco commenced
going oyer It. He had hardly read
half way through when ho Jumped up
from his chair exclaiming "where Mid
you get this, Archer? Its great," "I
nm glad you like it" said Archer, "I
tried to ha orlglnnl nnd tho story of
the Haunted House Is tho result,"
It was with a sigh of relief that Ar
cher saw tho last number of the Issuo
ran off, Taking ono of tho damp
shoots, he ran up-stalra and was soon
deeply absorbed In It, Hearing a
nolso presently, ho looked up Just In
tlmo to see Mr, Blckford of the Herald
stunding in the doorway. "Good after
noon," said Archer. "Take a chair."
"Uuees I will," replied Blackford, I
have been to see your mother and sho
tells me that during tho Illness of
your father you have charge of his
"Yes, while father is 111, I am trying
to fill his place as beet I can," raid
"Well, you must excuse me, but
business is business," went on Blck
ford. "Throe weeks from today, a
note for three-hundred dollars, given
by your father when he bought tho
Press, falls due. Knowing of your
father's Illness likely to last for some
time, I have coma to try and smooth
matters up for him."
"(Smooth mutters up for him? What
do you mean? May I n&k what you
have to do with the matter?"
"Well, a good deal" said Mr. Blck
ford smiling. "I hold the note."
You hold the nolo!" exclaimed Ar
cher. "Why, T thought It was the Lud
wlg estate that father gave the note
So It was until I secured It. Tho
Ludwlgs have gone abroad."
"Father know .nothing of this
transfer I am sure" said Archer, try
ing to appear cheerful.
"Ho Knew of course, the Press was
not free ' from Incumbrances, nnd
whether ho was aware of tho ex
change or not Is none of my business.
My object In calling on you Is to
know If the note can be mot. In case
the out-look Is a poor one, I am pro
pared to make this proposition. I will
take tho Press off your hands: give
you one-thousand dollars bonus, and
coll It square."
There was silence In the room for a
moment, then Archer began to speak,
trying to be calm.
"Mr. Bjickford, you assume because
I am little more than a boy, nnd am
now running the Press, that wo will
soon have to suspend publication. 1
may be vain and not know my limita
tion, but as long as I can draw breath,
the Press will never pass Into your
hands to be merged Into the Herald.
Neither will It suspend publication.
Further your note will be paid. Good
Mr. Blckford arose, wrathy and rod
In the face. "I have given you your
choice, and you will be sorry you did
not take it." With which ho stalked
out of the room. Beobee. having come
into the office during tho talk, hoard
the glst of the conversation. "Now
whal shall we do?" wore his first
"There Is only one thing I can think
of" said Archer slowly. "Is advertise
in the other papers that a prize of $i.
H bo given (the competitor who
writes the best ending for our serial
We will run It two more weeks and
then allow tho finishing chapter to be
written by the competitors.
Of course they will have to rend
the first installments to get the
thread of the story, and this will
necessitate them sending in for a sub
scription to tile Press.
"Capital" said Beobce. "Then wo
will publish the best of the different
endings as they come In. and thus let
our renders compare the different
ways one subject may lie frcited. That
will fill space In tho paper too."
The letters containing the adver
tising matter concerning tho prize,
wore sent out the first thing the next
morning and then ended a wait of
st.cral days for results. Sure enough
the Press seemed to bo 'catching on,"
for never before had so many letters
como to the Press office in one day.
Dollar bills for one year's subscription
came in with gratifying rapidity.
wlille unexpected demands were made
for advertising space. Archer figured
it all out ot the end of tho week, and
decided If this was kopl up for two
weeks more, lie could pay the indebt
edness of the Press off. Whether It
was owing to tho prize offer or Roe
bee's humorous paragraphs. Archer
had no time to determine, for the
business of the Press had so Increased
that be was almost bewildered by his
success. Both Beebee and Archer
were fairly over-whelmed with work
and were at their desks from seven to
six, while Archer worked on his story
nt homo during the evenings. The
lime quickly sped away and the story
contest was closed. Promptly to tlmo
also came Mr. Blckford to tho Press
olllce. A happy smile was on Ar
cher's face as he realized that he
could now pay off the much dreaded
mortgage. Sitting down he quickly
wrote the chock for tho desired;
amount payable to Bently Blckford,
and handed it to the astounded man,
who distrusted that crooked work had
been dono somehow, and hinted at
such, Archer determined to give tha
employees of tho Tress a half day's
holiday, and accordingly himself spent
the rest of tho day at home. Mr.
Trevford was now able to move about
and would bo strong enough to take
up his work again scon. Ho had
spoken to Archer nbout the note bo
had given, only a waek ago, but Ar
cher had vaguely hinted that the mat
ter was all right.
It wns a happy day for Archer when
he escorted his father up the steps and
Into the Press nfi'.co where he showed
him with boyish prido the munv
thnngos, and lastly the books showing
the business being done. Ho did not
forget either to speak of neobeo In
glowing terms. After comprehending
It all Mr. Trevford turned to his son
and said "my dear boy, how shall I
express the pride I have In you for
what you have done for the Press?"
The way ho 'did express It was to
make Archer permanent editor with
Beebeo his nble assistant.
