There is a little hair-covered trunk in the corner, studded with brass nails, and boots and leggings and canes and a jack-knife and a bootjack, and, on the window-sill, a friendly snuff-box. In the clothes-press were buff trousers and an embroidered coat and shoes with silver buckles, and several suits of every-day clothes, showing wear and patches. On up to the garret we groped, and bumped our heads against the rafters. The light was dim, but we could make out more apples on strings, and roots and herbs in bunches hung from the peak. Here was a three-legged chair and a broken spinning-wheel, and the junk that is too valuable to throw away, yet not good enough to keep, but "some day may be needed." Down the narrow stairway we went, and in the little kitchen Sammy, the artist, and Mr. Spear, the custodian, were busy at the fireplace preparing dinner.

Elbert Hubbard was born in 1859 in Bloomington, Illinois, and never received more than a grade-school education. A self-made man in many respects, Hubbard filled in the gaps in his knowledge through voracious reading, a passion which became manifest in the founding of the Roycroft Shop, a publishing house specializing in deluxe bindings. He wrote a series of 182 biographies under the series title Little Journeys to Homes of the Great and also published two magazines, The Philistine and The Fra, producing much of the content himself. Elbert Hubbard and his wife, Alice, were traveling to England
