THE MAYSVILLE MINSTREL

" Will you let me send it to Balch ?"
" I don't know if I've got another copy."
" Your wife must have a copy."
" I guess maybe she has."
He wasn't just guessing.
" I'll mail this to Balch tonight, along with a note. If he prints it, I'll send you the paper."
" I've got one that's even longer than that," said Stephen.
" Well, let's have it."
" No, I guess I'd better hang onto it-if your friend don't pay for them."
" You're absolutely right. A man's a sucker to work for nothing. You keep your other stuff till this is published and you hear from some magazine editor, as I'm sure you will. Then you can sell what you've already written, and write more, till you're making so much dough that you can buy the Maysville Gas Company from that old skinflint."
" I don't want any gas company. I want to get out of it. I just want to write."
" Why shouldn't you ! "
" I've got to be sure of a living."
" Living ! If you can make seventeen dollars in half an hour, that's thirty-four dollars an hour, or How many hours do you put in here?"
" Ten."
" Three hundred and forty dollars a day ! If that isn't a living, I'm selling manicure sets to fish."
" I couldn't keep up no such a pace. I have to wait for inspiration," said Stephen.
" A dollar a line would be enough inspiration for me. But the times when you didn't feel like doing it yourself, you could hire somebody to do it for you."
" That wouldn't be square, and people would know the difference anyway. It's hard to imitate another man's style. I tried once to write like Edgar Guest, but it wouldn't have fooled people that was familiar with his works."
" Nobody can write like Guest. And you don't need to. Yourr own style is just as good as his and maybe better. And speaking of Guest, do you think he's starving to death? He gives away dimes to the words."
