    Samuel Clemens, Better Known as Mark Twain by Mary Stoyell Stimpson

    1. John Clemens, Samuel's father, was a farmer and businessman in a Missouri town, called
    Florida. He had bought seventy-five thousand acres of land when he was much younger. He paid
    just a few cents an acre. He expected to be a millionaire, when that land went up in price. John
    Clemens was a good man and very smart, but he was not the least bit merry. His children never
    saw him laugh once in his whole life! Think about it!
    2. Mrs. Clemens did not like to have any one around when she was working around the house.
    The six children spent the days roaming through the country, picking nuts and berries. When it
    came night and they had had their supper, they would crowd around the open fire. Ned, the farm
    helper, would tell them many wonderful stories.
    3. Uncle Ned was a famous story-teller. When he described witches and goblins, the children
    would look over their shoulders as if they half expected to see the strange creatures in the room.
    All these stories began "Once upon a time," but each one ended differently. Sam admired Uncle
    Ned's stories so much that he could hardly wait for the evening to come.
    4. Sam was sent to school when he was five. He certainly did not like to study very well but did
    learn to be a fine reader and speller. His teachers said he ought to train himself for a writer, but
    it did not seem to him that there was anything so noble in this world as being a river boat pilot.
    And, he loved the great Mississippi River better than any place he had known or could imagine.
    5. Sam's father died, whispering: "Don't sell the Tennessee land! Hold on to it, and you will all
    be rich!" After his death Sam learned the printer's trade. He worked with his brother until he was
    eighteen, and then he told his mother that he wanted to start out for himself in the world.
    6. He went to St. Louis. He meant to travel, and as he earned enough by newspaper work, he
    visited New York, Philadelphia, and was on his way to South America when he got a chance to be
    a pilot on the Mississippi River. While he was learning this trade, he was happier than he had ever
    been in his life. If you want to know what happened to him at this time, you must read a book he
    wrote called Life on the Mississippi River. He wrote a great many books and signed whatever he
    wrote with a strange name-Mark Twain. This was an old term used by pilots to show how deep
    the water is where they throw the lead.
    7. Mr. Clemens had a wife and children of whom he was very fond. As he made much money
    from his books, they were all able to travel in foreign countries. And the old Tennessee land his
    father had bought never brought any wealth to the Clemens family. It was sold for less than what
    the taxes cost!
