Mr. Goddard waa working for the Now York World when Mr. Hcerat de cided to atari the Heant paper* theta, and one night when tha publishers ol '.lie World went to their offices they discovered that Mr. Hoaret had taken the whole staff, beaded by Ur. Cod 'd. Later the World bought Mr. Uodderd back, and still later Mr. Heant bought him ones more, and every time be was bought it was at an ed vs need figure. Well, anyhow, our stogy deals with him afta* ha waa all settled, estab lished and everything on tha Ameri can, tha Heant morning daily there. He was the biggest mao on It, and a big man in New York Is always hard to get to. Meanwhile. Mrs Ida C. Clarke, newspaper woman from Ten nessee, was In Now York doing free lance work for tha big dailies, and had met with cocas eucceee In “painting” bar stories. She had beca selling them to the World sight along, but got hold of a story which she wanted to aee la the American, and decided she would get In teach with Mr. Goddard. Armed with her story aha entered the American office and asked for the great Goddard. Of eooraa. she didn't get te see him.. She hardly expected to. Hut aha let the repraentanve of the groat man know that she had a story which she. believed Mr. Goddard would like mighty wall to see, and timed him off to tha subject matter, wbteh concerned a matter of news than very much in demand by all the local papers. She left the office and waa later called by phone and told that Mr. God dard wanted te see her as soon as pos sible. Howeverv she had gone straight to the World office and had sold nor story without the least trouble In the meantime. When she appeared at the American office again, in response to the God dard summons, she ni shown into his office. it is a large, dingy place, with a desk away over in one corner, and at this desk eat Mr. Goddard, pipe in hie month, hat on hit had and feet on bis desk Ho did not look up as she en tered, but want cm reading something spread out in hie lap. Finally he glencod et her coldly, ■aid "Well T" and pa need in his read '“^WeU?" replied Mrs Clarke, stand-1 log and looking him straight in the eye. “You wanted.to aoe me?" eras his next question. “No,? she answered, “yaw wanted to aoe sea 1 am Mrs.Qarts" "Dm," said the great man. “Yea." Ha waa about to eay something fur ther when the Interrupted him with; ' “Pardon me, Mr. Goddard, but I eat from the South, and perhaps a bit spoiled by Southern courtesy. If you will take your hat off your head, your pipe out of your mouth, and your feet off dm desk, I shall be glad to hear what you‘have to ear to me.” It was like lightning out of a dear sky, and the wont of It was—for Mr. Goddard—several man ea the paper wore listening through the open door and heard and saw it all. Startled out of hie customary coldness of manner, be eat bolt upright and eakad: “Wan, madam, do you want to run this office?’* "No,” she replied, “but 1 want you to run it more courteously while 1 am in herti.” Ho stared hard at her for a minute, then, with a laugh, took bis hat off and hia pip# out of his mouth—his feet had already bean brought down to the floor lead. Mrs. Clarke thanked him end asked him what it was be wanted with her. He wanted the story; ha couldn’t got it, be was tMd. “But, my dear madam,” be pid, “we want it, I tell you; we went all we can get on that eubiect.” “I am sorry, Mr. Goddard,” was her answer, "but I have already sold the story to the World ” And the next morning the World carried the story. Later. Mrs. Clerks waa asked by Mr. Goddard in person If she would act aa the general Southern corres pondent for him, aad if the would also submit anything aba might write to him. Sha accepted the latter part of the. proposition only, and afterward the American carried aet a little at her clever output. And If you think u little thing like that Is easy to “put over” in New York—-try tt. Thu rust majority who do try something like It never get any farther than the office boy.
