The philosopher who keeps the cigar stand on the corner of Congress Street and Ward Avenue explained it very clearly when he answered an inquiring stranger, "You just can't think Millsburgh without thinkin' mills; an' you can't think mills without thinkin' the Mill." As he turned from the cash register to throw his customer's change on the scratched top of the glass show case, the philosopher added with a grin that was a curious blend of admiration, contempt and envy, "An' you just can't think the Mill without thinkin' Adam Ward."

About the Author:

Harold Bell Wright (1872 - 1944) was a best-selling American writer of fiction, essays and nonfiction. Although mostly forgotten or ignored after the middle of the 20th century, he is said to have been the first American writer to sell a million copies of a novel and the first to make $1 million from writing fiction. Between 1902 and 1942 Wright wrote 19 books, several stage plays and many magazine articles. More than 15 movies were made or claimed to be made from Wright's stories, including Gary Cooper's first major movie, The Winning of Barbara Worth (1926) and the John Wayne film The Shepherd of the Hills (1941).

Book Description Aegypan. Paperback. Condition: New. 228 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.8in. x 0.7in.No well informed resident of Millsburgh, when referring to the principal industry of his little manufacturing city, ever says the mills -- it is always the Mill. The reason for this common habit of mind is that one mill so overshadows all others, and so dominates the industrial and civic life of this community, that in the peoples thought it stands for all. The philosopher who keeps the cigar stand on the corner of Congress Street and Ward Avenue explained it very clearly when he answered an inquiring stranger, You just cant think Millsburgh without thinkin mills; an you cant think mills without thinkin the Mill. As he turned from the cash register to throw his customers change on the scratched top of the glass show case, the philosopher added with a grin that was a curious blend of admiration, contempt and envy, An you just cant think the Mill without thinkin Adam Ward.
