Is. The few shops that had taken The

consequence; but then, as Dick said, J
who cared for them?
The articles In our paper were mark

when they read The Organ.

The Oigan had always meant a lot
more to Dick than the rest of us and i
now he threw himself heart and soul
into the work, writing most of l lie- ar

But In suite of ail his efforts the re
