Text Appearing Before Image:
usband groans and covers his face with his hands andthe wife, leaving the touching little story she is writing— she mails this about 11 a. m. and it produces a pub-lisher and $500 before 12:30 — comforts him by flop-ping suddenly over his shoulder. ** Courage,* she says,stroking his hyacinthine locks (whereas all real literarymen are either gray or bald). Sometimes, as in ** OurFlat, comic tradesmen interrupt the course of true lite-rature with their ignoble desires for cash payments,and sometimes, as in Our Boys,* uncles come andweep at the infinite pathos of a bad breakfast egg. Butits always a very sordid, dusty, lump-in-your-throatyaffair, and no doubt it conduces to morality by deterringthe young and impressionable from literary vices.
