The Song U
It Brought Joy to the Heart
of Its Composer
By AGNES 0.
When Miss Phyllis wns left nlone
In the old house which had been lior
home since iDfnncy Bhe fell very
much like n bewildered little child
who discovers suddenly thnt it is lost,
knowing not which way to turn. In
fnct, her whole life had been devoted
in plving no much thought to others
thnt Miss Phyllis' own affairs hud been
sadly neglected. She sighod wearily
as she rose to greet her sister Jj-lnw.
"Bo the furniture is to be n 111 lotted
off tomorrow?" Teddy's wife asked.
Thyllls nodded dumbly.
Clarissa, for that was her name,
looked around with a supercilious
smile. "Nothing here of much ac
count," she said. "You've let things
go to pieces shockingly, Phyllis. Hut
I intend to help yon out. I shall buy
that antique spinet, which I have al
ways wanted .for my music room."
Phyllis caught her breath sharply.
"Why, I could not part with tho
spinet," she sold. "It has been hand
ed down In our family for ages."
"Phyllis Wentwqrth," Jier sister In
law Interrupted sternly, "do you or do
you not Intend to pay your Jiwt debts?
That spinet Is the only article of real
value In the house. In fact.. It Is no
longer your property, but goes with
Miss Phyllis crossed the room slow
ly and stood looking down upon the
polished case, passing her fingers ca
ressingly over the yellowed keys.
"You are right, Clarissa," she said
at length, and her face was very
white; "the spinet will be sold. I
have no further claim to it."
But when she was alone at twilight
Thyllls seated herself before tho lit
tle instrument, and presently there
PUTLLIS WITHOUT A WORD QUANTED HIS
floated out upon the Bummer air a
melody a wordless song of haunting
sweetness such as a master might
have played in days gone by. A man
who ascended the porch stops at this
moment waited, listening, entranced,
to the harplike notes, and when Miss
Phyllis opened th door In response
to his summons he stood silent, as
though still under tho spell of her mu
sic. Phyllis smiled encouragingly, won
dering the while what errand could
have brought this distinguished ap
pearing stranger to her door.
"I beg your pardon, " he explained.
"I have learned that you ore offering
a spinet for sale tomorrow and would
Hke to examine it with a view to pur
chasing." He followed her graceful figure ad
miringly as Phyllis led the way into
the pirrlor. Then for an Instant his
hand rested almost reverently upon
the painted Cupids which adorned the
"Ah!" he exclaimed, and the one
word expressed full appreciation. As
Miss Thyllls leaned forward expect
antly the man's eyes soueht hors.
"Will you kindly tell r. e the name of
the selection you were pluylug a short
time ago?" be asked.
"It has no name," Thyllls answered
smiling. "Tho little piece was one of
my own fancies I call It a song with
"May I be permitted, then, to hear
the song agulu?" The stranger spoke,
with an abrupt eagerness, and Thyllis,
without a wod, granted his request.
As she played on and on, her listener
fbrgoften. the moon, looking through
the window, shone full upon her up
turned -.face, her eyes were dark with
memories and tears wet her chef Us.
Then, as the last note died away, she
turned, half startled, to. Und the man's
earnest gane bent upon her.
"I am a musician." he said, bis role
trembling with emotion, "but never la
my life have I heard such harmony,
such btuuty. And yoa say this mar
velous song Is one of your own compo
Miss Phyllis langhed softly. "Its
composition seemed to happen through
no effort of mine," she replied. "I
think the melody had been locked in
the spinet and made its escape when
my fingers touched the keys."
That night to her was one of sorrow.
She sat loug before an open window
gently smoothing tie petals of a rose
which she herself had trained to clam
ber up the wall; then, when all was si
lent, she made her way tearfully Into
the garden, walking among the flowers
and bidding them a mute goodby. If
the house remained tenantless until
fall she promised herself the privilege
of running over often to tend and care
for this beloved garden. Then Miss
Phyllis paused, dismayed at the unwel
come thought where would she be,
that she decided thus confidently to
"run over?" But her face bore no
trace of a sleepless night as she enter
ed the familiar parlor upon die follow
ing morning in fact a pretty rose col
or showed la Miss Phyllis' soft cheeks,
while her eyes were bright with ex
citement "I do declare," an old lady whispered
audibly, "Miss Wentworth grows
younger each year."
Phyllis chose a seat at the farther
end of the room, looking with secret
resentment into the eager faces of her
old friends and neighbors. Teddy and
his wife nodded to her from the door
way, and again a feeling of utter lone
liness crept over her. Then she saw
tho musician crossing the room to her
"Good morning," he said, but In his
brief glance and warm handclasp
Phyllis read a sympathetic understand
ing and wondered vaguely that his un
known presence should bring to her
this comforting sense of protection.
Several minor articles being hastily
disposed of, the auctioneer now drew
forth the little old spinet, while the rose
color deepened in Miss Phyllis' cheeks.
Teddy's wife started the bidding by
an offer of $100, to which the musi
cian added $50.
"Two hundred," cried Clarissa.
"And fifty," added the musician. A
ripple of laughter ran around the room.
"Three hundred." said Clarissa
"And fifty," persisted the quiet voice.
Teddy's wife paused to make a hur
ried mental calculation. "Four hun
dred," she called sharply.
"And fifty," echoed the musician.
For a moment there was no sound as
the auctioneer hesitated undecidedly;
then with a little rush Miss Phyllis
came forward, her clear tones ringing
out triumphantly. "Five hundred,"
cried Miss Phyllis.
The auctioneer smiled into her glow
ing face, and down came the gavel.
"Sold to Miss Wentworth for $000!"
Phyllis walked dazedly over and
dropped on tne lowest step of a lad
der. Her brother's face, Clarissa's and
the musician's seemed to float con
fusedly before her.
"Why did you not inform me of your
wish to keep the spinet?" the musi
cian asked reproachfully.
"We did not know," her sister-in-law
interrupted, "that you bad $500
Then Miss Phyllis laughed gleefully,
girlishly, and nodded to the musician.
"You tell them about it," she said.
There was a responsive twinkle In the
"You may not know." he said, "that
your sister possesses unusual talent as
a comioser of music. Last night I
was fortunate in purchasing 'from het
the exclusive right to use one of hei
compositions upon a coming concert
tour, and its value to me cannot be
reckoned by dollars and cents."
"I sold It." Phyllis stated calmly,
Clarissa stared. "Do you mean to
tell me," she said, "that you spent
every penny you have in the world to
buy back a wretched old spinet?"
"Every penny," Thyllls answered
cheerfully. But us her relatives moved
away in dignified disapproval she look
ed up at the musician with' a tremu
"I am wouderlng now," she confided,
"just where 1 shall keep my spinet!"
The man bent over her compassion
ately. "You have had enough of all
this," be said. "Come out Into the gar
den. I should like to speak to you
The hollyhocks which Thyllls had
planted nodded upon either side as she
followed him down the path. She
stooped to pluck a rose, to fasten a
fallen vine; then his eyes met hers
"I fear," he said slowly, "that you
may doubt a lovo which is spoken so
quickly. Will you try to bear with
me to understand? Years ago I
hoped with a young man's longing to
meet the one woman who could be
my wife, but time passed, bringing
disappointment, for I failed to find
her. Then last night, when you stood
before me in the doorway, when the
moonlight shone white upon your face,
I recognized in you that woman, and I
knew that I would love you always.
Irrevocably, just as I realized at once
the beauty of your song, and now I
beg for your promise to let me care for
and protect you. That would be hap
piness beyond all belief. Later perhaps
you, too, may leurn the lesson of lov
ing. Until then I shall be patient. I
Birds called to each other across the
silence of the garden, while Miss Phyl
lis sat with her face buried In her
hands; then at last she looked up, smil
ing through her tear briht eyes.
"I do not think you will have to wait
long." she said hultlngly. "It Is all
very strange and wonderful, but the
love for you la here now in my heart '

KIS LAST RESOURCE.
Toole Micht Have Used It at First, but
3. It. Toole, the English eomedinn,
dearly loved a Joke and Just as dearly
loved the excitement of the gaming ta
ble, though he invariably lost. Dur
ing a holiday that, says an English
writer, he and 1 passed together at
Aix-les -Bains he did his best to im
peril the good effects of his cure by
his constant attendance at the Cercle
and the Villa des Fleurs. After a night
in which he had been more than usual
ly successful in exhausting tho ready
cash he carried about him we made
our way on the following morning to
the little bank in the main street of
AIx-les-Bains in order that he might
make a fresh draft upon his letter of
But be did not at once reveal to the
clerk in charge his serious business
Intent. Tapping lightly at the closed
window of the gulchet, he Inquired in
broken English, which he appeared
strangely to believe would be some
how comprehensible to his foreign In
terlocutor, whether the bank would be
prepared to make him a small advance
upon a gold headed cane which he car
ried in his hand. . The request, as
might be supposed, wns somewhat
briskly dismissed, and the little win
dow was abruptly closed In his face.
Toole retired, apparently deeply de
jected by the refusal of his request
but in a few minutes he returned to
the attack, having In the meantime
provided himself with fresh material
for a new financial proposition.
Hastening out Into the little market
that lay near the bank, he hurriedly
purchased from one of the fish stalls
a small pike that had been caught in
the lake, and, having added to this a
bunch of carrots, he returned to the
bank, where he carefully arranged
these proffered securities on the coun
ter, enforced by the addition of his
watch and chain, a threepenny bit and
When all was ready he again tapped
softly at the window and In a voice
that was broken by sobs implored the
clerk, in view of his unfortunate posi
tion, to accept these ill assorted arti
cles In pledge for the small sum which
was needed to save him from starva
tion. The clerk, by this time grown indig
nant requested him to leave the estab
lishment, explaining to him In emphat
ic terms and In such English as he
could command that they only made
advances upon circular notes or let
ters of credit
At the last named word Toole's sad
dened face suddenly broke into smiles,
and, producing his letter of credit, he
handed it to the astonished clerk with
the added explanation that he would
have offered that at first if he thought
the bank cared about It, but that the
porter at the hotel had told him he
thought that they liked fish better.
Inquiring For John.
The pricking of that soap babble,
pretention, is always an agreeable pas
time. In her volume of reminiscences,
entitled "As I Kemember," Mrs. Gou
verneur relates that the son of Presi
dent Von Buren was generally known
as Trlnce John because he had once
danced with Queen Victoria befpre her
accession to the throne and was unable
to forget It
One day Van Buren met on the street
James T. Brady, who had recently re
turned from a visit to England. In
a most patronizing manner he Inquired
whether Brady had seen the queen.
"Certainly," said Mr. Brady, "and un
der these circumstuncea I was walk
ing along the street when by chance
the queen's carriage overtook me, and
the momeut her majesty's eye lighted
on me she exclaimed:
" 'Hello, Jim Brady! When did you
hear from John Van Buren? "
During a recent visit of a well known
circus to an Ohio town there appeared
In the sideshow a countryman of a
decidedly inquisitive turn. He made
tho round of the freaks, to each of
whom be put many questions. Finally
"DID YOU KVBK HAY TBB DB0P8Y?"
he came up to the living skeleton, In
whom he seemed especially Interested.
"Did you ever have the dropsy f he
asked the man of skin and bones.
"Well, hardly," said the freak. "Why
do you ask me such a silly question?"
"I Jest thought that If you ever had
been troubled with the dropsy." ex
plained the rural one, "you was shore
the best cured man I ever see." New
