GERTY CIRNECIE'S SONG,
'Ten minutes to ten-if I hurry
I shall catch the ten-fifteen train,
and may manage to be back to
dinner at two, mamma.'
So saying, Gerty Carnegie, with
deft fingers, rolls up a piece of
manuscript music, and then runs
up stairs, to equip herself for the
expedition to town.
Gerty is in deep mourning.
Only five months ago she lost her
brave, noble sailor father, a cap.

lost, with all souls on board,
among the icebergs.

child wholly unprovided for, and

own exertions for the means of
So Gerty, who is a brave girl as
well as a pretty one, has thrown
herself with her whole youthful
energy, into the task of teaching
music, and the other day has even
attempted a composition ; it is a
song set to Tennyson's 'FIow
down, cold rivulet, to thie sea,' a
very am~bitious. under,taking;' but
what is there too high for the am
bition of youth ?
Thbis precious work of art, neatly
copied, she is now on the point of
taking up to one of the music pub
lishers in London-she is living
with her mother at Wimbledon
and her heart beats high as she
gives herself up to the architec
ture of airy edifices, furnished
with tame, success and prosperity.
She hurries to the Putnoy sta
tion, and jumps into an empty-.
looking secon d-class carriage, and
takes her seat with her back to
There's no one with her in the
carriage, so Gerty begins to sing
her song, partly out of the fulness
of her glad young heart, partly
with the purpose of exercising her
voice a little, for. she hopes to be
permitted to sing it to Mr. Doosy ;
she has a clear and sympathetic
mezzo-soprano, and, pleased with
her owni performance, repeats her
song over and over again.
Suddenly she is startled by a
cough behind her-a manly cough,
and, oh, horror ! as she quickly
turns round, she beholds in the
far corner of the adjoining com
partment a man.
Dreadful! Has she been giving
an unsolicited concert to this
-abominable stranger, who dares
to sit there, and, with admiring
imnpertience, take off his hat to
her ? She feels inclined to cry
with shame and mortification.
Luckily the train slackens speed
*at this moment, and, in her hurry
-to get rid of the mani, G-erty is
even willing to risk her life in an
- attempt at jumping out while the
train is still in motion, but the re
fractory window saves her, for,

*slide down and permit her to open
L'Thank heaven!' she ejaculates,
as she rapidly passes through the

As Gerty nears her destination,
she finds, to her ditnay, that her
rol of music, which she had fan
cied safe in her muff, has vanished.
Tears rise to her eyes, and she
desires the conductor to stop, for
she must go back to the station
and see-an infinitesimal chance

from the platform to the omni
Of course she finds nothing

an imprudence to throw the rough
copy into the fire.
Poor Gerty! She asks one or
two porters whether they have
found anything, but they only re

and a half-contemptuous 'No,
miss,' and pass on ; so there re
mains nothing for her but to re

and she sobs forth her pitiful

entails a second copying, and that

'Nonsense, you'll remember eve
ry note of it, and just write it out
again, that's all.'
'N.ever, mamma. It is a bad
omen ; it tells me that I am not
to succeed as a composer, so
there's an end to that dream.
And now let us have some dinner'
and then I must go up to the
terrace, and give my lessons at
Mrs. H ar mon's.'
And Gerty dries her tears, and
tries to put on a cheerful face, and
to do justice to the frugal repast
that is presently set before her.
In the afternoon she departs
rather heavy-hearted, and with
lagging steps on her daily duty of
teaching. At the Harmons 'she
finds her two pupils, the twins,
Winny and Ethel, in a state of
'Oh, Miss Carnegie, papa has
consen'ted to our giving such a
jolly party on the fifteenth, our
birthday, you know. There's to
be a dinner party first, and then
we are to have music and singing,
and wind up with a dance. And
you m]ust come. It would be so
kind if you would just sing a song
or two, and Winny and I are.to
sing our duet, and then you must
stay and join in the dancing with
the rest of us-do!'
'I don't dance at present, you
know, Ethel, but i willecome with
pleasure, and help you all I can to
amuse your guests, and I'll play
for the dancing; then you need
not trouble to engage any one.
The fifteenth, you say ? That's
tomorrow week. Very well-it
will suit me perfectly.'
And then the lessons are given,
and Gerty returns home in the
dark, drizzly January evening,
forgetting all about the party,
and thinking of nothing but her
The week goes by, and on the
eve of the party Mrs. Carnegie
'By-the-by, Gerty, what are you
going to sing to-morrow eveming
at the Harmons?'
'Oh, I don't know, mamma.
Anything that comes into my
ead at the time. It does not
signify in the least. The people
the old ones I mean-will have
eaten so much dinner that they'll
be content to doze at any ditty,
and the young ones will wish it'
over as quickly as possible, so as
to commence the dancing. My
singing will be merely a stop-gap,
and the choice of songs therefore

And Mr. Wentworth seats him

What is that?

Gerty listens with straining

'Would you object to telling me

FOR THE HERALD.
TIZE TALMAGE ENTERTAIN
The edifice (I won't say "church")
is built just like a theatre, and having
one semicircular gallery. But there
is no drop curtain, no "boxes," and
you do not buy tickets, though you
are made to pay before the sermon be.
gins. The stage or platform is a long,
uarrow extension, projecting from the
orgao which is stretched out the en
tire length of that side of the build
ing, and above, the pipes are painted
in loud alternations of red, blue and
gilt. These last efforts were evidently
thought beautiful, for the chandeliers
suspended about at intervals, are the
bluest and reddest things I ever saw:
the gilt being of course supplied by
the blazing gaslights. The carpet is
red, and red cushions are on the seats.
The organist sits below the platform,
and plays lively airs while the audience
assembles. After a time a door opens
on the right hand, apparently below
the organ. A-shuffling figure of me
dium height and build emerges, with
a furtive air ascends a flight of steps
and seats himself in the solitary chair
standing beside a small table which is
used as a support to a bible. This is
Talmage. His unkempt brown hair
refuses to grow on the top of his head,
but comes out in long shaggy tufts at
the sides which quite conceals the ears
and forms a combination with a pair
of dried brown whiskers. The latter
are a framework to a face in which
may be noted an enormous mouth. A
nose in keeping, extremely small eye,
set very far back under overhanging
eyebrows, a receding forehead and a
pallid complexion. There is a kind
of Uriah Heep air about him and I
think the world has lost much from
the fact that Dickens never saw him.
If he had, Chadband would have been
nowhere, and the pastor of the Brook
lyn Tabernacle would have been im
m_rtalized. Uriah was remarkable
for a peculiar use of his hands, so' is
Talmage, for he incessantly claws at
everything about him : usually clutch
ing the air, for he has no reading desk
or apulpit to pound. For the latter
purpose, however, his left hand is con
stantly made to do duty, spread wide
open and the recipient of innumerable
blows from the long fingers of the
right. TPhese performanceE are added
to also by numerous grimaces: the
precise object~ and miarket' value of
which, I was unable to determine.
His voice is harsh .-nd oroaking ; . his
pronunciation very bad, nor has he
the slightest claim to eloquence. His
amen is the most remarkable sound I
ever listened to, and may be classed as
a cross between a groan and a bellow.
But words (such as they are) trundle
out rapidly enough, and this fact pro.
bably, together with the gesticulations
and grimaces above mentioned, the
whole being seasoned with a strong
flavor of vulgar irreverence and flip
pancy, may cause some persons to re
gard him as an orator. I should set
down the majority of his listeners as
Bowery clerks, and sewing girls. A
more ignorant assemblage of faces I
never beheld, and if there were any
cultured, well dressed people there, I
did not see them.
Taking the bible from the stand, he
begins to read, but evidently supposing
that the simple narrations of the gos
pel would be improved upon by varia
tions of his own, lie reads a verse and
then makes some independent obser
vations; going on afterwards to ano
ther verse and so on. As an example
of his peculiar style, I will quote his
opening sentence, in something which
was probably intended as a prayer :
"Oh !Lord, we thank .thee that thou
hast not turned us out on the commons
to die." I must acknowledge I was
nmoved, nor have I after much re
flection been able to discover the
point. The music has as little of mu
sic in it as any to which I have ever
been condemned to listen, I suppose it
would be classed as "Congregational,"
though the sound of the voices was
almost drowned by the piercing tones
of the cornet which combined disa
greeably (or rather don't combine)
with the organ. The music stand is
placed on the platform at the left of
the organist, and Arbuckle, the cor
netist, emerging from some unknown
depths, places his music thereupon,
giving a signal with his right hand for
the congregation to arise and follow
him ie ,.ainlyi lowers himself by
havimg anything to do with such per
forumauces, but then he is a married
man, and one has to look out Tor dol
lars and cents.
A badly shaped urn of flowers about
four feet high stood on the right hand
of the stage ; this doubtless in imita
tion of the Plymouth arrangements.
At Plymouth Church, however, the
floral decorations are very tastefully
disposed. . Fortunately Talm-jage did
not tumble the urn over. Sometime
in consequence of his exuberance of
spirits, I expect to hear that he has
wrought devastation to everything
Altogether the . whole thing im
pressed me as a coarse and unattrac
tive parody on Beecher. A desperate
attempt at imitation.
THE MAN WITH A FAMILY.
Mr. Jasper Throckmorton, who
lives out on Summer street, is the
father of ten children. Yesterday
morning Mr. Throckmorton was
just on the poin.t of putting on his
hat to start for the office, when
Mrs. Throckmorton caled aftier
him from the kitchen:
