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. Sincerely yours,

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

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
Judge Ben B. Lindsay: "Pelmanism is a big,
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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Eight Months Course
By WILL IRWIN
“ 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. If you buy no other book, and read no other this year, buy and read The Next War' by Irwin The greatest book of these times.”

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.
