How Ghatto Child Lift Dspistar Oat
Har Start aa an Author.
Myra Kelly (Mrs. Allan Macnnugh
tan), the American educator and author,
affectionately known to many thou
sands of readers as the writer of sto
ries of ghetto children in New York
city, who died recently In Torquay,
England, was born in Dublin, Ireland,
about thirty years ago.
Ten years or so ago a newspaper
man was dining one evening with Dr.
James T. Kelly, who asked for advice
concerning his daughter's troubles
with magazine editors. This seemed
like the preface to a familiar story—
the young woman had literary ability
which the editors persistently refused
to recognize. What was to be done?
But the story was not along that fa
“My daughter Myra,” said Dr. Kelly
when his companion asked how he
could help, “Is teaching In a downtown
east side school. All of us nt home
have been entertained by her stories
of her pupils, and I urged her to write
some of them. She was timid about It
because of the tales of often rejected
manuscripts by unknown writers and
did not say that she would make the
“Unknown to me she did, though,
and, determined to get over the agony
of unanimous rejection as soon ns pos
sible, she made three copies of her
story and posted one each to three
magazine editors. This morning site
came to me in dismay with three let
ters from three editors, three checks
and three requests for more stories.”
Dr. Kelly’s companion ag-eed to act
as diplomatic agent, saw the three edi
tors, settled the matter of first choice
by lot and gave the bewildered young
schoolteacher’s promise of other sto
ries in turn to the other two editors
That was the unusual mnnner of en

of Myra Kelly, then a teacher in the
primary grade of public school No. 147.
in New York.
The opinions of the magazine edi
tors were speedily Justified. Readers
demanded more stories about “Isidore
Belchatosky,’’ there were enthusiastic
encores for iurtber comment by “Mor
ris Mojelsky,’’ subscribers would not
be denied more of the wisdom of
“Becky Zalmonowsky,” and “I’atrick
Brennan,” whose father had resisted
the tide which had swept most of Ills

friends by the thousand among irmg

glad to accept SSO. Within a year she

Preferred Supreme Bench to Presi
dency, Sayi Senator Cullom.
Senator Cullom of Illinois is being
quoted as having snid that William H.
Taft would have retired from the cam
paign to secure his nomination as pres
ident and would have accepted a place
on the supreme court bench, thus re
alizing the ambition of bis life, if
Chief Justice Fuller had only retired.
Here is the statement attributed to
“Within a month of his nomination
for the presidency Mr. Taft would
have retired from the contest nud gone
upon the supreme bench had Mr. Ful
ler retired. I personally know that In
the height of the excitement of the
campaign leading up to the conven
tion Mr. Taft's aspirations were not
affected. Mr. Roosevelt would, I have
reason to believe, Have acquiesced had
the chief Justiceship ncen vacated.
Some facts within my personal knowl
edge which 1 am not at liberty at (his
time to state warrant the assertion
that practically to the eve of his nom
ination for the presidency Mr. Taft
had his eye focused on the supreme
court bench. It may seem to many u
strange choice, but because of his pe
culiar temperament and training Mr.
Taft up to the time of being made
the standard bearer of his party would
have retired from the field with alac
rity and pleasure could he have be
come chief Justice of the United States

jured, several seriously, In a fire in
the Central Steam Laundry. Several
of*the girls Jumped from windows
and others were injured In an ex
plosion. Four are in a serious condi

clouds of steam burst Into the room
the girls became panic-stricken and
seven of them Jumped from the sec
