WHO DEALT?

the magazines to publish them. Of course if you are Robert Chambers or Irving R. Cobb, they will print whatever you write whether it's good or bad. But you haven't got a chance if you are an unknown like Tom. They just keep your story long enough so you will think they are considering it and then they send it back with a form letter saying it's not available for their magazine and they don't even tell why.
You remember, Tom, that Mr. Hastings we met at the Hammonds'. He's a writer and knows all about it. He was telling me of an experience he had with one of the magazines; I forget which one, but it was one of the big ones. He wrote a story and sent it to them and they sent it back and said they couldn't use it.
Well, some time after that Mr. Hastings was in a hotel in Chicago and a bell-boy went around the lobby paging Mr. I forget the name, but it was the name of the editor of this magazine that had sent back the story, Runkle, or Byers, or some such name. So the man, whatever his name was, he was really there and answered the page and afterwards Mr. Hastings went up to him and
introduced himself and told the man about sending a story to his magazine and the man said he didn't remember anything about it.
And he was the editor! Of course he'd never seen it. No wonder Tom's story keeps coming back !
He says he is through sending it and just the other day he was going to tear it up, but I made him keep it because we may meet
somebody some time who knows the inside ropes and can get a hearing with some big editor. I'm sure it's just a question of pull.
Some of the things that get into the magazines sound like they had been written by the editor's friends or relatives or somebody whom they didn't want to hurt their feelings. And Tom really can write !
I wish I could remember that poem of his I found. I memorized it once, but-wait ! I believe I can still say it! Hush, Tom
mie ! What hurt will it do anybody? Let me see; it goes :

" I thought the sweetness of her song
Would ever, ever more belong
To me; I thought (0 thought divine!)
My bird was really mine!
" But promises are made, it seems,
Just to be broken. All my dreams
Fade out and leave me crushed, alone.
My bird, alas, has flown!"
