Transcript Enameloid Blue "Surely, you couldn't live in that!" said Dan as we peered into the dark one room ruin of a neighboring stone cottage that served him as a barn for his one cow. It was with almost shame I said we could. So after arranging to have the place cleaned out, to have a cement floor laid, the walls plastered, a window sash put in, a sort of fireplace contrived, and the roof re- thatched, we left for Dublin. It was of course pouring rain when, ten days later, we returned. The house was ready for us and the lumber that we had ordered for furniture was piled inside. I went to work. Before bedtime I had made a bedstead and a table. Next day I made a cupboard. Then I built a half round table into the deep reveal of the little window. Then some stools, and an easy chair. That was enough: the 10 x 12 ft. house was full. While I painted the countryside and Enameloid Apricot the sea, my wife painted the room. She made the walls pure white—for it was dark in there; and the furniture she painted with bright colors. And when she had made the curtains for the window and the cupboard, and a coverlet for the bed, the room was so altogether charming that in time it became in a mild way a place of pilgrimage for the people of the countryside. "We've come to see the little house" they'd say. And the ■«■■—inni urn ■ "Ahs!" and "Ohs!" and the "Isn't it lovely!" that we heard filled our hearts with pride. There we lived happily for five months, and might, but for one good reason or another, have been living to this day. One day at tea time in our cottage, Dan Ward took his pipe from his mouth and asked: "Did you ever hear tell of a man called by the name of Prince Char-les?". "Yes", said we. "Well", continued Dan, "'tis Flat-tone Coral Rose-—Enameloid White said he lived right here in this very house for twelve month and a day. And then a big French ship came for him and he went away in it." * * * Oh Prince Charlie, poor hunted wanderer that wanted to be king! Take it from one who has slept in the bed of the King of Bulgaria: You'd have been wise had you made this hiding place your last; had you here in this quiet Glen taken a lovely Irish girl to be your wife; had you built yourselves a bedstead, a cupboard, an easy chair and stools, and a round table in the little window that looks out over the sea; had you bought her pretty calico for curtains, and bright china for her shelves; and for the walls, the floor, the furniture, for beauty in the home and peace to your good souls bought Sherwin-Williams paint — then, Charlie, would you have lived a better life, and—like this story—come to a good end.—Rockwell Kent White set in red and yellow 24
