must bo obvious that a juvenile pianist should

that tho father of a juvenile pi mist should bo

Winchoombo herself that wealthy and pow

tions In the faintest degree Ho hud been
kissed by empresses and queen not to speak
of duchesses marchlonissM nnd countesses
Innumerable und ho hid long ago arrived at
the conclusion that there is no sort of pleasure
I In being kissed bj old omen however exulted
their rank liosldos BOnui of them haJ beards
Lady lnchcombo hud time udxantiso over
Borne of thoui inasmuch as who was not only
beardless but made no offer to kiss the > oung
gentleman for whose talent she professed tho
Blncorost admiration bho was a handsome
middleaged motherly lookln woman nnd It
was in 1 very kindly and sympathetic voice
that sho said
Poor little man I how tired you lookl Are
you tired
Oh yes I am always tired answered
Franz meaning rather to state a fact than to
make any appeal for additional pity
Hut that Is quito wrong that will never
dol How uro you to go on giving concerts if
you arent allowed to rim about and have
plenty fresh all like other children I Come
back to tea with mo and bo introduced to my

canon for supposing that every wish of hers
could < bo complied with Ill tillV Instance the
was not disappointed although Mr RobInson
while bowing obsequiously and thanking her
lad ship for her kindness and condescension
thought it right to mention that Franz had
not Lien at all a food boy that day
Ho Is I an overworked l boy > said Lady
VTliichcombe rather Foveiely and everybody
know 01 ought to know that an overworked
boy cannot Lu a good boy And when Franz
was seated beside her in her softly cushioned
carriage Mn asked tll what have you
been about Ahy did your father say that you
had been naught ty
1ruiz put Ills hand Into the pocket of Iil4 vel
vet knickerbockers and tightened his linger
upon time notes and coins which constituted
Ills entire personal assets This lady appeared
toboawolldispo ed person but his precocity
had taught him to distrust npuoirnnros nail
ho doubted whether It would bo pnidunt to lot
her Into tho sort of a plan which tho acci
dent of hor Invitation hid miduicd < sum ovhmut
moro easy of execution Inn t It utlinrw Iso would
have been So ho limited himself to the confession
fesslon that ho hud for a 1 few minutes refused
to perform that afternoon
Dear mo oMlalmed Lily WInchoombe
laughing and I you hud icrnlHlcd there
would have boon no concert How amusing
that would have been llowoxor a you
didnt persist there wasnt muUi harm done
and your father wont punish YOU I hore
Kolhing was moio certain than that hla
falhtlll I I f hn got the dnnen rould both un
bit him I nnd pick Ills Pocket but It Is aha > s
illflcult to oplaln domostlo situations to ou
hldurN and Franz abstiilnod from any eTort In
that dlrentlon Ho answered with perfect
truth that he lid not think liU fithor vould
pinlhh him I this tlmo s jon after which ho was
spared all further nood for equivocation bj tho
pulling up of the carriagi Loucuth time portico
of tho vAlmhcombo Towers
imlnombo Towers is not quite fso grand
nn cclillcn ns its namo might seem to imply
allhouili It Is by far tho largest and most Im
osng > among time many villas which are scat
tered over tho hillside of the fahlonahlo
VMitcilti plnco that it dominates Huch as Its
miigiilllioiueand luxury wore thoy produced
no Imnrcsaionof awe or wonder Franz Os
tuimiinii who had Been plenty of big houses
and con ervatorips nnd pondered footmen
curl Iorslin carpets before Thoso attributes
ofwoatth oxlstonce wore nothing to him but
he did like mulllnB and was not averse to
congenial society when it could bo had It
was his good fortune to bo provided with both
on being Invited to heat himself nt a wa table
b sldn lady Ella Htracey a vivacious little
blueeKcl maiden who at once sot to work
to catcelilsa him and of the two he really
thought that ho liked I ady Ella tho boat
Her mother had letters to writ so that the
two children were left together make friends i
which they speedily did and as soon as tho i
raufllns had boon consumed I idy Ella took i
horvlsitorolT to the stable yard to show him
her dogs and her rabbits and her Shetland
POll Ho was much interested In the latter
as well as In tho groom who conducted them
Into tho other stilli nnd loo o boxes and
whom ho addressed with a good Ioal moro ro
npect and reverence than ho had displayed
when talking to Lady Winchcombe
That is what I am going to be he In
formed tho little girl when they had loft the
stables I nm going to be groom
You n Iooml she returned opening her
eyes and surveying him with a touch of dis
dain why I thought jou wero going to boa I
pianist You dont know anything about I
horses do you T
ot jet but I can learn Of course I shant
begin by being a groom I shall bo a stable
boy nt llrfct In fact this is a great Eecrot
you know but I dont mind tolling youI
mean to run away I have got a lot of money
and I shall talo tho train to London tonight
and bo lost Once I am there I shall cot a
situation easily enough
Ho proceeded to state the reasons which had
caused him to ilocldo < upon this somewhat
nazauious stop ala very cooa reasons tOY
wore as his hearer was fain to admit It was
a melancholy tale that tho poor little follow
had to tell and ho told It vrlth 1 pathos which
was nil the moro touching becou o ho evi
dently rogaidcd his hardships ns nothing so
very out of the ordinary Only ho had come
to tho conclusion tint it wasnt worth while to
submit to them any longer 1 Lady Klla who
was a hlghtoura od child and perhaps
rather a spoiled one into the bargain was
moved to tears or indlgnilion by this art
less account of the brutalities of a
drunken lather and of the desperate wcarl
nose engendered by vvlmt to the outer
word might have looked lllo a corlo of
brilliant artistic trUmplm but what roused
her Ire mow than all the rest put together
was 11ll S inattororeourfln statomiMit that
