Tho following selection from ono or
WlilttlcrV poems wns recited liy Rov. Rush
It. SlilpiH'ti at Hie fmicr.il of Oakes Ames !
There Is no death, what si!ems so Is transition:
Tills life of mortal breath
Is Inn a suborn or the lire elvslan,
Who iwrtal wo call death.
Know well, my soul, God's hand controls
Whnle'er thou fcarest;
It "i in I hlni In calmest music Mis
WhatoVr thou lieareM.
What to th"e N shadow lohlm I., il.n ,
And the end lis knoweth.
And not In a blind or aimless w.iv
Tho spirit goetli.
In life. In .lc.illi; In dark, and II In,
All nie In God's cure;
S mild tho black abyss, pleriv the or tl.-i,t:
And he Is there.
All which Is reul now remained!
And fadeth never.
Tno hand which upholds It now suslalncth
The soul forever.
Leaning on hhn, make with reverent meakness
Disown, thy will,
And Willi strength from Him shall thy utter
Life's task fullll.
And that cloud itself, which now before thee
Lies dark In view,
Shall with beams of light from the Inner glory
Ho stricken through.
Ono day, as .Moznrt was seateil in his
study, in n profound reverie, he. heard a
enrrmgo stop nt his door. A slrnnucr wns
announced, who ashed to speak with him.
He. wns an ned man, very well dressed, of
noliloiind imposing maimers. He said to
'I nm commissioned hy a great man to
come nnd find you."
"The name of this man, ir vou piea'e?'
"He does not w i.Ii to In; known."
"Very w ell ; vv liat ai e his vv Mies ?"
"Delias lo.it nveiy dear fiiend, whose
memory will he forever prceious to him.
He vviflics lo commemorate her death,
every year, liy n solemn service, and ho
wants you to compose a roipiiem for tlu
occasion." 3Io.:ut was deeply impiesscd liv these
words spoken so solemnly, and hy'the nir
of mystery that seemed to pervade the in
terview. JIu promised lo compose the ic
(Uieiu. The stranger continued :
"Put to this work your entire genius, for
you compose it for u connoisseur in music. ''
"So much the better," said 3Iozart.
"How much lime do vou want for the
"Well, I will come for it in four weeks.
What will he your price f"
"One hundied ducats."
The btranger counted out the money
upon the table and disappeared. 31ozart
remained plunged in deep thought for a
few moments, then called for pen, ink and
paper and began to write tho requiem.
Notwithstanding the remonstrances of his
wife, he wrought upon it night nnd day.
But his hody, nheacly feeble, could not en
dure this continual strain, and he finally
fell fainting nt his task. Then he wns oh
liged to rest. Several days after, his wife
sought to divert his lnind from its sadness
by some playful remark, lie replied earn
"One thing is certain ; lam composing
my own requiem j it will serve to perpetu
ate my own memory."
In proportion as ho wrought his strength
diminished, from day to-dav, nnd tho re
quiem advanced very slowly. The four
weeks are linallv gone, and the stranger re
turned. "It has been Impossible for me to keep
my word," said 3Iozart, sadly.
"Never mind," said the man, "how
much more time do you require?"
"I want four weeks more. The work
has inspired me witli deeper interest than
I supposed, and I have given to it more
study than I intended."
"In that case it is right that I increase
the price. Here are flu ducats more for
In astonMiment 3Ioznrt asked, "Who are
"That is nothing to the purpose. I will
return in four weeks."
As the stranger left tho house. 3Iozart
called a servant and requested him to follow
this extraordinary man and llnd out who he
was j but the blundering man soon returned
saying that ho could llnd no trace of him.
Poor 3!ozart had conceived tho Idea that
this stranger was no ordinary mortal, hut
was one of his friends in the Immortal
world, sent to warn him of his approaching
death, lie applied himself with redoubled
ardor to his lequiem, which ho regarded as
the most enduring monument to his genius.
He fainted many times at Ids toil. Finally
it was accomplished before thu expiration
of the four weeks.
Tho stranger camo for It at tho given
time ; hut 3Iozart was dead. From the
A Reitois Outwitted. Choirs are not
only very costly, but are skittMl things to
handle. Thcru is usually a row in llio
choir end about four times a year,
and each lasts about as long as the seasons.
Loivtz is tho great organist and composer
of this region. He is a wiry, nervous and
sensitive creature, and Is full of music as
somo peoplo aro of electricity. You can't
touch him without sparks Hying off in all
directions. Ho has had the lead of the
music for some time nt St. Ann's. Ills
music has been very celebrated, nnd on fes
tive occasions it would havo required a
good sized park to hold all the peoplo who
wanted to get In. The rector has been
rather jealous, from time to time, of the
drawing qualities of the organ end of the
church. To carry out his purposes, 3lr.
Loretz wanted to introduce, into the choir
the "harp, flute, sacklmt, violin," and
other instruments used on llio Plain of
Dura. The rector, who is rather jionipous
and opinionated, entered a decided protest
against tho Introduction of these vnin and
worldly Insliuiiients of music. After tho
services were opened, came the grand musi
cal performance. First came u beautiful
Hutu solo. The indignant rector then heard
the distinct twang of the prohibited harp
The shrieking violin rode on llio top wave
and could not bo drowned even by the deep
notes of llio pedal bass. Word was Instant
ly sent to the delimit organist to turn out
the prohibited instruments at once. The
answer wns sent back : ''There is nothing
here to turn out but tho organ. There Is no
harp, Utile, or violin in llio building." Anil
the music held on its way. Tho rector was
not only Indignant that Tils wishes were not
compiled with, but felt that tho organist
was lying nbout tho matter. Couldn't ho
hear with Ids own cars If Tho vestry was
sent up to Investigate tho matter, nnd It
was found that tho organist was improvis
ing on tho organ itself, und doing It bo
naturally Hint any man would bine been
