of that kind of farmers who sold any-
thing that anybody would buy, she
never had anything extra to eat. But
now she had a huband who thought
her the best ever, and indeed she was
a fine handsome girl, intelligent, ener-
getic, good humored and lively. It is
no great wonder that Mary flew high
and bought the best there was in the
way of wearing apparel, for Dick
thought there was nothing too good
for her. He had been brought up in
a family where there was plenty of
money. He didn't think anything of
dining at the best restaurants with
Mary and settling a ten dollar bill

ing a dollar tip for the waiter.

Mary and Dick lived well. The
firm he worked for told him to get
acquainted with the men in his city
who had money to spend. They al-
lowed him a liberal expense account,
and when Marj' came back east on a
visit three or four years after her
marriage, the queen of Sheba hadn't
anything on Mary when it came to
wearing apparel. Silk, satin and vel-
vet, sealskin and jewelry were very
much in evidence, and she was indeed
a handsome woman, our Tommy
Jewel of the old school and play-
days. She was the same good fellow,
though, that she had been when she
climbed trees and waded in the
brooks and threw stones and dug out
wood-chucks with the gang at The
Corners, but we had all grown to be
young men and young women and
we looked on life through very differ-
ent eyes. Mary was evidently in so-
ciety in the large and rapidly growing
city where her husband's business was
located, and they were leaders in the
younger set who spent money freely
and made the wheels go round.
But speculating in stocks is not the
safest business that ever was. It's a
gamble for everybody concerned.

from the fellow who puts up a ten
dollar note to the great brokerage
house that from Wall Street takes its
chances on the rise and fail of stocks;
and the great house in New York
that backed the chain of bucket shops
and for which Dick Emslie was repre-
sentative in this city of the North-
wet had been backing its own game.
That is, it really never bought or sold
any stocks. It simply took a chance
that things would come its way. As
I have said before, the public is al-
ways buying for a rise. Now a rise
don't generally come any more olten
than a fall and in that case the shop
wins; but this year it did. There was
a continuous upward rush in the price
of all kinds of stock, and when that
state of affairs exists the brokerage
house that backs the game is sure to
lose and this house went to the wall
with a tremendous crash, and like a
house of cards, when the center went
down the whole chain of houses fol-
lowed and went by the board, and
there were a dozen arrests of man-
agers of these branch houses. In
the city where Dick Emslie was lo-
cated there was a tremendous outcry
against him, for many thousands of
dollars had been invested, and when
the investors came to get their gains
and found that the house had gone to

smash and there were no gains t
divide, you can imagine that the
"put up a holler." Two or threl
young men had used trust "funds will
which to speculate and they prompt
got prison sentences. Emslie was ar
rested for taking money for invest
ment after he knew the house to In
bankrupt, and on trial the state prov
cd to the satisfaction of a jury tha
he did know the house was bankrupt
Dick swore by all that was great arc
holy that he had no suspicion of thi
fact until the very last days befon
the crash came, when it was too lati
to give warning to his customers.

Anyway, they made Dick the go:i
and sentenced him to five years in thi
penitentiary. He tried to get an ap
peal, but the big house that backec
him left him in the lurch. They hat
all they could do to keep the mei
higher up out of jail and so the younj
man went up, got a short hair-cut anc
a suit of striped clothes and becam
number 2738 in a large institutior
with a nice high stone wall all arounc
it and a barred gate so the dog!
couldn't get in and bite the boarders
and Mary_ Jewel found herself verj
much out in the cold, and thus far ir
life a failure.

Next month I'll tell you how sh(
became a success.

In 1S91 R. E. Carter attended the Zanerian College of Penmanship,
Columbus. O. .In 1897 he sent his son, R. Winston, who in turn sent his
son Loraine in 1919. Loraine. who is 14 years of age, shows remarkable
ability and plans to return to the Zanerian after he has completed his other
education. When asked why he came to the Zanerian he stated that it
made a man of his father and that it would make a man of him

The specimen herewith will give you a good idea of what Loraine
accomplished in 4 weeks in Engrossing Script.

"Wanted, A Name." — It is strange
lat someone else, a person like Mr.
)ennis, for instance, has been both-
red by that word "Engrosser" in
bout the same way that I have my-
';If. I have just about concluded that
le word "Artists" can and should be
sed by us as well as by any other
ersons practicing the fine arts. True,
: does not convey much in our case
'nless accompanied by "Engrossing
nd Illuminating," but that is true of
ny other line. There are artists in
he same building with us, and I no-
ice they also accompany the word
Artists" to whatever branch of work
iiey do. On the other hand, the work
if Engrossing is now fortunately be-
oming pretty well known. For in-
tance, we get any number of well
vorded Resolutions from large cor-
lorations, societies, etc., which have
lauses right in them reading, "that
hese resolutions be engrossed," etc.
That is, I think, a pretty good sign.
I have looked up the word "En-
rossing" and I have often blamed
he American penmen for coining
,>uch a word, but I find it in early
|English works as well as American.
The word seems to be built around
he German word "gross," meaning
large — to write large, or to take a
iianuscript and En-large it. Person
illy, I do not like the word, and I
wish it could be dispensed with in
some way. but if it is necessary to use
t to carry on our work, we will have
to stick with it, I suppose. Perhaps
some people will object to our using
the word "Artists," holding that we
are not entitled to such a name, but
I do not care: we are in this work to
elevate it and give it a boost if that
is possible, and we intend to use it as
much as to us appears reasonable.

Daniel A. O'Connell, LeSueur, Minn.,
is making good headway in card
writing, as shown by the specimens of

The cards show that he possesses

W. G. Crabb, Washington, D. C, a
government clerk, became so inter-
ested in penmanship that he decided
to spend his vacation in the Zaneriar
College of Penmanship, Columbus,
Ohio, last summer. We are in receipt
of some of his specimens of round-
hand and lettering. His roundhand
work shows considerable accuracy
and professional touch. You will no
doubt hear more of Mr. Crabb, as he
is rapidly bringing his work up to a
high standard.

P. A. Westrope, who has been follow-
ing penmanship either as a vocation
or avocation for a great many years,
favored us with some of his ornamen-
tal penmanship and flourishing. The
specimens show that Mr. Westrope is
"holding his own" in skill.

The firm of Norder and Harris, Engrossing Artists, Chicago, 111., recently
prepared an advertisement intended not only to solicit business but to show
a specimen of their skill. The above handsome design is the result, except
that in engraving the beautiful illumination of five of the initial letters in gold,
silver, purple, red and blue is lost. We are pleased to present it here, for
undoubtedlv it will prove of considerable value to others who look to THE
BUSINESS EDUCATOR for ideas and help in this work. Note the arrange-
ment of the design, the balance, the spacing, the masterful lettering and
script, and, above all, the legibility of every letter. To execute a piece of
this kind that is highh' artistic in effect and that even the untrained eye
can read without effort is a real test of the engrosser's art. In our opinion,
much of the value of anj- engrossed work is lost when it requires too much
effort on the part of the average person to decipher. Unmistakable plainness
and artistic effect are two of the fundamentals in this work. Mr. Norder,
senior member of the firm, began this work nearly seventeen years ago when
he entered the Zanerian College of Penmanship, Columbus, Ohio. Since then
he has been connected with engrossing studios and has done an immense
amount of fine work. His prosperity has kept pace with his skill and today
he occupies an enviable position as a leader in his field of work, as well as

Mr. Harris has gathered many valuable ideas during his twenty years of
experience in the work and has a wide acquaintance.

The success of these gentlemen clearly shows what can be accomplished
by persons who incline towards the engrossing art and who then assiduously
apply themselves to it, persevere, and use good business methods.

The Kalogram or monogram name is a new thing, apparently, and
perhaps many haven't yet met with it. The Kalogram is more than a mono-
gram in containing all the letters of the surname or Christian name or both.
It should especially appeal to penmen and engrossers. No doubt many will
take delight in arranging and designing their own name in a Kalogram.
Who is there that does not like a good combination in script or a monogram
in text of his own name?

The Kalogram has many uses: It can be used as a monogram on a
personal or professional card or letter and form the important ornament.
The one presented this month is to be used as a book-plate. If smaller it
could be used on a letter head or envelope. If larger it could be used on
an automobile or a crest, and in fact have many other uses. The one pub-
lished in the November Business Educator would make an excellent engrav-
ing for a watch or watch charm.

Penmen and engrossers try it.

Again the penmanship professid
mourns the loss of one of its meni
bers. I. P. Ketchum, Madison, Wis
consin, passed away on November 2S
1919, of heart trouble, at the age o l|
71 years. He began his writing will
a quill pen, and began teaching schog It
when very young. For many year
he has been in the printing business
at the time of his death being V ica
President of The Democrat Printinj

As a penman he ranked very high
His work was delicate, skillful, an(
attractive. As a man he was kin^l
modest, gentle, and ever willing t
help a struggling penman, or to fur
ther the cause of good penmanship
He was a student of B. M. Worthing

lived was built by Mr. Worthingtot
over fifty j'ears ago.
