with General Harrison by Ed-
waid W. Bok editor of the
Ladit-s' Home Journal the gen-
eral was paid for them with
jihe understanding that when
they were put into book form
the magazine was to share the
royalties accruing therefrom.
Mr. Bok however of his own

Harrison from paj'ing him any
royalty for the reason as he

oi the articles by General Har-
rison the subscription list of

Mr. Bok asks nothing further.
Gen. Hairison placed the dis.
position of his book in Mr-
Bok's hands. The. best offer
came to the editor from the
Scribners and ta them Mr. Buk
gave the book for his disting-
uished contributor. G?n Har-
