When Rodney Phall Inherited the lit
tle Wcstbrook factory that had been
tho quiet, unassuming property of his
deceased uncle for two decades, ho
posted up his one order in all of tho
four working rooms of the plant.
It was: "Sing."
"What does he mean, anyhow?"
growled well-meaning but surly Jeff
Dodson, the foreman. "Is thero a bet
ter system In any shop along tho riv
er? 'Swear!' would BUit me better
when a machine breaks down."
"Maybe his advice would be good
for you, then," suggested his assistant.
"It doesn't do the youngsters much
good to hear you rip It off when you're
Before another day, however, all
hands In the plant understood tho situ
ation clearly. The new proprietor ar
rived a rather serious-faced young
man, but with a kindly light in bis
eyes and a gentle, sympathetic voice
that attracted the eighty odd employes.
The first thing Rodney Phall did was
to call all hands into the main rest
room and make them a speech.
He told them that he felt something
more than mere enrichment In being
tho favored owner of the business a
sense of great responsibility. The
same conservative business methods
would be followed. Old and deserving
employes would be retained. His
great wish, however, was to make of
them a hapy family. He Intended to
build a club house for them, where mu
sic, lectures and entertainments could
be held to break the monotony of their
lives. There would be a good library
and a gymnasium. These faithful
workmen had borne bravely the brunt
of the Industrial battle. They should
share In the prosperity of the business.
Each year twenty-five per cent of the
profits of the concern should be dis
tributed equally among the employes.
Of course there was rare apprecia
tion evinced at the mention of this lib
eral donation. Then Mr. Phail said:
"I have put up a sign reading, 'Sing.'
I want to explain about that. For ten
years my life has been spent on a lone
ly ranch, taking care as custodian of a
piece of property In litigation belong
ing to my uncle. The solitude, the eve
ning weariness after an uneventful
day, the uneventful existence fast
made of me an unsociable hermit,
There was no sweetness in my life.
Then, one day, a wonderful bird took
up its home just above my cabin door.
It sang from morning until night It
filled the air with rare, beautiful mu
slo, and my soul with delight. When
it flew away to sunnier climes with the
approach of winter I missed it great
ly. Then a new idea came to me: 1
would sing myself. My friends, you
do not know how his companionship
of music cheered and refined me."
This was the text, and further upon
the subject "the new boss" briefly
descanted. He showed them how, es
pecially in the work rooms where the
assembling of the plant was done at
long tables, the hours could be enliv
ened by music, the vocal organs exer
cised and rhythm, poetry and good
There was so much promise to the
plan, the girls especially so eagerly re
sponded to the music suggestion, that
Rodney decided to go a step further.
He advertised In a near city newspa
per for a cultured lady to undertake an
orderly educational superintendency of
a group of sixty young factory girls.
One especially neat, terse and com
prehensive reply from a Miss Mabel
Durant pleased him. A week later the
young lady in question arrived upon
the scene with her aged mothor. Rod
ney had a neatly furnished cottage
near the works all ready for them. For
the first time In his life a woman's
face attracted him in anew way. With
in a week he was ardent in his appro
bation of the system pursued by the
quiet, refined young Jady, who entered
with zest into taking charge of the girl
Rodney left all the details of man
agement and training to Miss Durant.
He heard great reports of her sue-

Suddenly a Jarring crash shut out

There was a blast of flame. The main

dense clouds of smoke rolled upwards.
The direful shout, echoed and re

rush from the building. A chill struck
the heart of the anxious Rodney as he
thought of the girls on the fourth floor.
"Those narrow stairs!" he gasped,
and then, thirty voices strong, thero
came to his ears the steady, rising
notes of a song accompanying the
footsteps, as clearly timed as though

hazard a guess as to the number of our

in consequence more than ordinary

the book story closely, every character
being faithfully reproduced in the
stage version, and in this form posses
sing an even wider appeal to lovers of
