The Boy from Hollow Hut

by Isla May Mullins

We first meet Steve as a typically shy and ignorant mountain boy to whom a book Is an unknown article and education a mysterious something unheard of before his chance meeting with Mr Polk, through whose generosity he is given a new chance in life. Steve's life in the mountain school, where he helps the other boys to better actions and ideas, is only the first step of many taken by him to better the lives of the ignorant poor about him. After a college course Steve returns to the mountains to take up his duties as head of the school where he was once a pupil. In the woods here Steve locates some valuable coal land, and when we last read of him education and strength of purpose have made the crude mountain boy into the far-seeing and finished Stephen Langly.
