I sold the "movie" right of the book to the outfit that made the picture. l'nder the court decision, when I sell the "movie" right, I sell the right to change the plot. They changed the plot and made it a nasty sex thing, and I am just as much ashamed of it as you can be, but I have no rights in the courts. I thank you very much for your frankness in the matter.

People who are planning to redecorate their houses may find interesting suggestions in these hints from a dissertation on color:

Green, the color of all foliage and herbage, is naturally the most restful of all.

Blue, the color of the sky and of the sea, is conducive to a serious mood, and often gives the impression of coldness.

Yellow is the color of sunlight and of almost all fires. From these associations it takes on a cheerful aspect. It gives the impression of warmth.

Red, the color of blood, is exciting and stimulating. To be surrounded by it tends to make one hasty and excitable.

Black is the color of night and mourning. It is always a depressing color. It makes us feel gloomy.

Purple gives something of the impression of black, but at times conveys the idea of elegance. This is probably due to its long association with royalty.

Chauncey M. Depew's celebration of his eighty-seventh birthday revived the story told by Joseph H. Choate as one of his experiences when he was Ambassador to England. He was asked by an inquiring Briton what Mr. Depew's station was. “Grand Central Station," Mr. Choate answered.

To say the fitting thing in acknowledgment of a favor is something of a tax on the conversational powers of most people; when the recipient is unfamiliar with the conventional phrases used or gets confused in using them, comical situations occur, as in this instance reported in “Harper's Magazine." Two sisters of a deceased cook called to acknowledge the flowers sent by the family. "We came to thank you for those beautiful flowers that you sent for sister," said the elder woman; and then, with a little stutter, she added, “and we hope soon to be able to return the favor."

The "Boy Scouts' Magazine” publishes this rhymed appreciation of the Scout who refuses to "pass the buck:" I'm strong for the fellow who tackles

his part With courage and vigor and resolute

heart; Who is proud of the work he is given

to do And proud that folks know he will see

the thing through; Who goes boldly forward and sticks

to his pace, Considering slacking or failure dis

grace; Who refuses to quibble or straddle or

Any shade of his duty by "passing

The Mysterious Power of

Pelmanism Disclosed

A New and Easy Process that Practically

Forces Men and Women to Succeed

What World Famous Men Say

About Pelmanism

your thinking power-your money-making power-and prove to you that your desires and ambitions can easily and quickly be made realities.

Secrets of Achievement

TVTHAT is this mysterious power of Pel

manism? What is this great world

wide movement that is performing so many thousands of apparent miracles everywhere-that is enabling such great numbers of men and women to attain undreamed of heights of financial, social, and intellect il success?

Fir t of all, Pelmanism is different from anything you have ever heard of. It is not an experiment. It is not a fad. It is not an untried theory-for it has stood the test of twenty-seven years. It is not a business. It is not a profession. It is not a "mind healer." There is nothing to which Pelmanism can be compared.

But it will prove to you, as it has proved to over 500,000 others, that you can achieve Success in a big way—that right now you

have just as good a brain
as most of the men who are
earning from two to ten
times more than you-then
reveal a method of using it
that will practically force
you to succeed in spite of

Judge Ben B. Lindsay: "Pelmanism is a big,
vital, significant contribution to the mental
life of America. I have the deep conviction
that it is going to strike at the very roots of
individual failure, for I see in it a new power,
a new driving force."
Sir Rider Haggard, whose books have been
translated into every language: "I recommend
Pelmanism to those who, in the fullest sense,
really wish to learn and to become what men
and women ought to be."
George Creel: "Talk of quick and large salary
raises suggests quackery, but with my own
eyes I saw bundles of letters telling how Pel-
manism had increased earning capacities. I
say deliberately and with the deepest convic-
tion that Pelmanism will do what it promises
to do."

There is no "magic" about Pelmanism. There is no mystery about Pelmanism itself. Further, it does not promise anything but what it already has accomplished in thousands of cases.

It is not “high brow;" it is meant for everyone. It is easily understood; its principles are easily applied. You will find it of deep and fascinating interest. You will be gripped by its clear logic. You will begin to feel its mysterious effect almost immediately. Many have said that even after the first hour they were conscious of a startling change in their whole attitude toward life.

To thousands Pelmanism has been the means of greater success in life. To thousands it has been a stepping stone to financial independence. To thousands it has led the way to unexpected achievement.

Without the principles of success embodied in Pelmanism no one ever has succeeded-no one ever will succeed. This, RE of course, does not mean that no one can gain great success in life unless he is a Pelmanist. No, but it does mean that with Pelmanism your success will be surer; your success will come sooner; your success will be far SIR RIDER HAGGARD greater!

Your Unsuspected


Your brain has wonderful potentialities. Hidden in you are powers you never dreamt you possessed, which if put to work will bring results that will astonish you. This is not idle supposition. It is cold, hard, indisputable fact, born out again and again in thousands of others.

Pelmanism will unfold these hidden powers to vou and show you how to use them. It will make you acquire just those qualities that are necessary for success in every conceivable business or intellectual pursuit. You will be filled with a new dynamic force. Failure will become impossible-Success, inevitable.

them down in black and white, in clear,
easy form that everyone can apply to his
or her own needs.

This was not the work of a year-or of
ten years. It was the work of a lifetime.
It entailed endless research-countless ex-
periments-tireless effort. Whether this
effort was justified can best be judged by
what Pelmanism has actually accomplished
in hundreds of thousands of cases. In-
stances of quick promotion through Pel-
manism are countle
salary in less than six months and trebled
salary in less than a year are by no means
unusual. In exceptional cases there have
been salary increases of 700, 800, and even
1,000 per cent.

But Pelmanism not only holds forth the
promise of increasing your earning ca-
pacity. Its aim is broader than that. It
points the way to cultural success as well
as material.

It will enable you to gain a greater power of self-expression, in thought, word, and action. It will develop your originality and imagination to a surprising degree. It will teach you how to organize your thoughts and ideas; how to acquire a keen, infallible memory; how to acquire a masterful personality.

It places before you, in clear and simple form the latest discoveries of Business Psychology. It reveals the secrets of what Psycho-Analysts call "The Subconscious,” and shows 'you how the mysterious life that is lived below the mind's conscious level is one that affects your moneymaking, your general ideas, your attitude toward the world, and your happiness.

But best of all Pelmanisrn will develop

Certain Definite Principles

Necessary for Success Just as there are certain personal quali. ties necessary to success, so are there certain definite and specific principles which are also absolutely essential to achievement. Without these principles it is impossible to rise above the levels of mediocrity-it is useless even to try.

Once you know them, however, vast opportunities will open before you. You will have chances for success beyond your fondest hopez. Obstacles will crumple before you. The pathway to financial independence will be laid wide open. Money will flow in on you. Apply these principles and you cannot help succeeding!

Dr. FRANK CRANE declares:

“ Unreservedly I place it as the best book in the world right now for every man and woman in America to read including the President and the Senate. If I had a million dollars I would see that every teacher, preacher and legislator in the United States owned this volume. I would have it taught in every public school. For, like you, I have read much of war and am callous. But this book staggers my imagination, it sweeps away the last cowardly subterfuge of my intellect, it grips my heart in its amazing revelation.

By PAUL SCOTT MOWRER The Public Ledger, Phila., quotes Mr. Mowrer's definition of the Balkanization of central and southeastern Europe as “The creation, in a region of hopelessly mixed races, of a medley of small states, with more or less backward populations, economically and financially weak, proud, covetous, and intriguing, a continual prey to the machinations of the great powers, and to the violent promptings of their own passions," and says: “ The book is important if not indispensable to every student of international politics." The New York Herald says: "Mr. Mowrer has handled the most complicated and diverse political questions which have ever troubled the world with clarifying lucidity, and has packed into his treatment å mine of understanding and wisdom which might indeed constitute a formula for their possible adjustment. ... We can only hint at the riches of this invaluable volume." The Pittsburgh Dispatch says: "For those who realize that the passing year is to witness so me momentous decisions touching the American arrangement of its foreign relations, the unusually clear expositions of the volume will be particularly welcome ... an exceptionally valuable book." MAURICE FRANCIS EGAN, in the New York T'imes calls

it: “The best book yet printed on the most important European conditions."

By LINCOLN C. ANDREWS Because of the great success which attended the use of his little book on leadership in officers' training camps during the war, Brig. Gen. Andrews was invited to write the textbook for a new West Point course in the psychology of command, which is published under the title “ Military Manpower.” Its study by officers of the New York Guard was recommended by Maj. Gen. O'Ryan in general orders. "Manpower” is an adaptation of the same principles to the needs of executives in industrial and commercial life.

dealer to show you our three
standard brands of 58ths inch
garden hose sold at good hard-
ware stores everywhere.
