By DAVID CHRISTIE MURRAY.
Mr. Ronald Marsh gave his poems to tlx
world, and they made almost as much noise
as he had hoped. But when one goes forth
to make a noise in the world, the charaetei
of the clamor which arisos Is as important
as the volume of it, and the public recep
tion of Mr. Marsh's muse, thoi gh loud
enough to satisfy anybody, arousVd the bit
terest scorn in the poet's heart, fcuj'i a
charivari of chuff, such a Jovian roll and
peal of laughter aroso from the great re
Tiewers, and was taken up by the little ones,
as has rarely rung in any poet's tingling
ears Rince reviewing eamo into fashion.
The Times set him down to roast at a whole
column, the ' llser branded him with one
red-hot paragraph, and from every point oi
the compass the critics, big and little,
heaved the coals of fire of friendless criti
cism at him by the shovelful. But the poet,
as Mr. Tennyson had already written, is at
the moment of his birth "dowered with the
hate of hate the scorn of scorn" and Mr,
Marsh was not easily to be discomfited. He
bought tombrerot of a wider brim than he
had ever worn until then, he vowed in his
inmost heart that the shears of the barbe
should invade his rolling locks no more, an
he ordered his tailors to add an inch or twi
to the poetical cloak in which he commonly
went about London. The faithless few who
had worn his livery and gono about in his
likeness fled from their colors. They had
their hair cut in the normal way, and be
gan to attire themselves in the conventional
garb of gentlemen. When friends talkee
about the Leader they made a weak pre
tense of baring been in the secret all along,
and tried to make it appear that they had
been hugely tickled by the fustian which
had thrilled their simple souls. The Leader
had lost his following, as most leaders do
when they lead to ridicule, but he faced the
world alone, and meditated fresh poems
with an undaunted heart.
He abandoned none of his old haunts, but
he found many of his old friends pitiless.
There are few men who need sympathy
more than the man whose book is a failure.
Within it, tangible and visible, lie the
nerves of his soul, if he has one; he has put
into it his acutest discernment, his sweetest
fancies, his lofties thoughts, his most cun
ning invention; has glowed with hope
and gone cold with fear about it ; ho has
loved it tenderly and admiringly, as a good
wife loves her husband, and with a growth
of joy in its strength and beauty, as a father
loves his child. Then comes the grim re
viewer (born surely with bowels of brass
and heart of adamant) and slays this darling
of the author's heart, scalps it, slits its dear
little nose and tender cars, wreaks on it all
his barbarous humor of wicked invention,
and throws its remains aside without even
the poor satisfaction of a Christian burial.
Who can need sympathy more than an au
thor in such a case? But there is no moro
mercy in the world for him than there is
milk in a male tiger.
Yet in the conclave of tn, which met in
the cramped back parlor in tlio Strand, th
murdered poet found men who had suffered
aforetime, and known tho joy of resurrec
tion. The man in the corner tossed tho
light quillutsof the brain hither and thither,
but he airaod them not at the unsuccessful.
He had himself tried to stay the tempest,
and had written that the book was not so
bad after all. Had the poet known him as
the dealer of that unkindest cut of all, ho
would have slain b in in his corner before
the spectral nine. When he entered and
took his seat among them, they greeted him
more kindly than o old, and made more of
a comrade of him. Lorrimer, who was
talking, made a point of addressing him
personally, so as to make a feature of him.
" Your worship was the last man in our
mouths. You remember being here one
day, long ago now, when I sang the praises
of Miss Churchill?"
" Perfectly," replied the poet, "I went
with you to the final dress rehearsal, and
you put into my hands the letter she left
! I was saying bo as you came in. Tha;
brings the history up to the end of her con
nection with the stage. Well, everybody
knows what a mystery that looked. Not
ft soul had an Idea where he disappeared
1 " I know," said the poet. "I met her
afterward. Bhe married a fellow named
Tregarthen-disreputable fellow, who wis
dismissed the army; insisted on nsinf em-h
fearful language at the meRs table that the
other men wouldn't stand him. Well-con
nected fellow I believe he's the last of one
of the oldest families in Cornwall but an
awful blackguard, so I'm told."
" Well, upon my word," said Lorrimer,
" that's a pretty sort of cove to forbid his
wife, with his dying breath, to go upon tho

stage, and everyliody agreed that the dead

It was no business of any man's, but tvc
or three peoplo vt i knew him caught tut
poet In tho act of leaving that street aftor
dark, with a certain marked air of furtive
idronture. If any hopes of seeing Mrs.
Tregarthen again drew him that way, or if
ho merely went to moon in the neighbor
hood because it induced that curious sense
of tho abolition of moral responsibilities
with regard to language which is so valua
ble to poets, would seem to bo uncertain.
When you relax your brains fur the manu
facture of verses, nnd allow them to flow
out where they will, diffuse and devious, a
remembrance of some person of tho oppo
site sex servos as a sort of center for tho
tides, dissipating or rallying them tjuito
apart from the will of the patient.
It had growu into winter-time, and tho
rainy night had fallen upon London, ami
the streets had a fungous odor in the rain,
and were inch-deep in mud, when the poet,
bearing his demon with him, slashed past
the lodging-house top-booted, with his som
Irero picturesquely flapping and his long
cloak picturesquely flying in the wet wind
which blew up from the river. Ho was
scathing a reviewer, and would have thrown
his annuul income into the Thames to have
secured a stately rhyme to " viper;" but
just as he passed the boarding-house door
it opened, and the merest glance assured
"him that Mrs. Tregurtuuu stood thereat
tired for the street. A second or two later
the wind caught the door, and slamme! it
noisily. Tho poet moderated his headlong
lace, paused nnd turned. Mrs. Tregar-
tlion's tall and graceful figure went flutter
Ronald Marsh knew perfectly well that
it is not counted a gentlemanly thing to
follow a lady without her knowledge nnd
consent, and he piqued himself on beinj
gentleman almost more than on being a
poet. Ueelid not think it honorable to dog
a lady's footsteps, and It was no affair of
his to know whither she was bound on foot
on a night so iuolemiut. While he thousrlit
thus ho followed Mrs. Tregnrthen, regulat
ing his own pace to hers. 1 his was shame-
lul, and iio turned away, out only for a
second. When he locked again tlie flutter
ing figure was gone, though thero was no
opening on the street to right or left, and
no had seen her outlined like n wavering
silhouette against the (strand lights a mere
fraction of time ago. A special puddle lay
abreast of where he had last seen her, no
ticeable because it caught the lights of the
bright street beyond and reflected them like
a mirror laid aslant. He kept his eyes up
on this landmark, and, though as he grew
closer the light faded from it, he knew that
he had not lost the place. He was sure
with a keener pung than anything but the
reviews had hitherto caused lain that he
had not lost the place; for where the wind
beaten figure had disappeared stood a" swing
ing door, and above it the triune gloles of
gold. Poverty's storm-drum is mast Lib
all the year round.
The young man drew into the shallow of
a corner, and watched the dor, w ith no
memory of his scruples of half a minute
back. It was not the business of the mo
ment to analysize the motives which moved
him, but they were nine-tenths made up of
pity and a helpless wish to be of service.
He had to wait in the wind and r;iiii for
full five minutes before the swinging-door
opened, and Mrs. Tregarthen reappeared,
heavily veiled, and ran against the beating
wind to the door of tho boarding-houac,
where she paused to uso a latch-key, and
then disappeared swiftly.
At the thought of yuuth, and grace, and
genius brought to such a pass as this tho
poet 'vas grieved, and he walked miserably
way, not seeing how to be of use, but bur
ned with a heavy sense of the necessity
r doing something. A man may be brim-'
fill of conceit, and may write bad verses,:
ml yet have a good heart. He walked
omn and dressed for dinner, and dined
moodily with people who laughed at him
or being moody. Then he went, at a late
hour, to the theater, and there encountered
Lorrimer. He had something of a struggle
with himself before he could take the man
ner into confidence, but at length he did
t, swearing him to secrecy. Lorruner
heard him through with uu expression of
face bordering on the distracted.
If I dont find out something about this
by-ttU(lby,v said the manager, " I shall go
mad. Come here, into the box-office. Look
at this advertisement iu the Tim?. Where
are we! Oh, here it is. Head that."
The poet read-
Miss Churchill is requested to claim her
private fortune at the hand:, of Messrs. Lowe
& Carter, of Clements inn. A. 1.
"Sow," said Lorrimer, when Ronald
Marsh looked wonderingly up at him, "what
the Moses is it all about f These people,
Lowe & Carter, were the lawyers whopuid
nie my claim against Mis Chun hill. Slio

The sense of romance and mystery which
seamed to grow up about Mrs. Tragarthen
helped to keep her in Konuld Marsh's'
mind, and he U-gun to haunt tho street she
lived in, and, during tho hours of darkness,
vi prow i about Its neighborhood, until tho
police set watchful eyes upon him and
booked him in their ow n minds as a person
with an unlawful purpose.
Lorrimer wrote to the lawyers, asking it
the Miss Churchill ndvertised was identical
with the Miss Churchill in whose lehulf
they hud done bunlness aforetime. Receiv
ing an answer h, tllu allirmalive, lie sup
plied them with her address und waited
to hear more. N0 news reached

ings in a street olf tho Tottenham Court
Itoiul that both she ond - the child were
poorly and scantily dressed, and thut the
house in which she now lived was fit only
for tho occupation of the very poor. Lor
rimer went to the lawyers, begging to be
enlightened. They, inquiring courteously
into his right to claim enlightiiient anu
finding it to be non-existent, respectfully
declined to snt isfy him. Ho retreated, and
had new conferences with the poet, who
wus melodramatically gloomy, and let fall
deadly hints about villainy, ond betrayal,
and the wild justice of rovcugo, perplexing
Lorrimer still moro. At last, spu rred by
his lofty hopes of the actress's post ible fu
ture and his own, nnd moved at least in
part by the promptings of good nature,
and bound to a solution of the mystery
by n very cable of curiosity, ho leaped im
patiently into a lmckuey-carrh:go, and set
out in search of Mrs. Tregarthen. He had
Ler address from the poet.
" Sun-blistered paint, years old, upon tho
floor; thick veils of dust upon tho windows;
a mere well of an area, with rusted railings
round it; doorstops cracked and sunken ut
" She might have a house in Park Lune
by this time," thought Lorrimer, as he
scanned the place, " and yet she lives hero,
What was her private fortune, I wonder
tho Inst curse of a dying mother-in-law?
It looks like it."
When ho tugged at tho bell -pull a long
piece of rusted iron cnine out from the
door-post with a reluctant creak, lie
pushed it back again, and topped the blis
tered door with his gloved knucYles. A
slatternly woman came into the well of au
area, wiping her hands upon a dirty
apron, ami having inspected him,
went leisurely into tho house
again, and after a pause, which seemed
long to his impatience, opened tho front
door an inch or two, and regarded him
afresh in unpromising silence.
(iood morning," said Lorrimer, with
smooth politeness. "You have a lady
staying here, ma'am. I believe, and I
should bo extremely obliged if I might be
allowed to s.-e her. We are old friends,
and I have been informed that she is in
some distress." Lorrimer was gorgeous as
to his attire, and his manner we.s almost
monarchical. As he spoke he drew
a half-crown from his waistcoat
pocket und holding it delicate
ly ' between his finger and thumb,
like a duke ixTforming a playful conjuring
trick, dropped it into the woman's palm,
which came automatically to receive it.
The woman opened tlie door a little wider.
"Do you mean Mrs. Tregarthen, sir.'"
" That," said Mr. Lorrimer, " is the la
The woman opened the door still wider,
nnd permitted him to enter. A ragged oil
cloth clung somehow to the floor, but the
unwashed stairs were oai-petless.
" What name shall I say, sir?" asked the
' Say Mr. Lorrimer," returned the man
ager; but he followed closely on her heels
as she mounted the stairs, nnd was resolved
to present himself before he could be re
fused an audience. Ho could not have
told then or afterward whether pity, curi
osity, or managerial enterprise drew him
on more st rough-. Either the first or last
would have been in itself enough, an 1 the
three together were irresistible.
The woman paused on a dark landing,
and knocked nt a door invisible to Lorri
mer. " Come in," said a voice in reply, and the
"A gentleman to see you, ma'am,'' she
said in a voice for which Lorriuier could
have thrown her down stairs. He knew
one side of tho world and of human nature
pretty well, and he rend the hypocrisy and
propitiation of the carneying tone. Ho
could have sworn the woman habitually
bullied her lodger.
" Tell him," said Mrs. Tregarthen, in a
f l ightened voice, " tliat I cannot see him.
Lorrimer was in the room already, and
had taken in half its sordid details at a
glance. A bed in a corner, with n little
bundle lying on it; a chair, a table, a few
dresses hanging on a wall from which tho
paper dripped in moist festoons; a rusty
" Madam," said the manager advancing,'
" you must not decline to see me, I come
as a friend."
I'ity had the better of managerial enter
prise for a moment at least, and the room
wont dim to Lorrimer's eyes. Mrs. Tre
garthen, in a shabby black dress which
mado her palo face look paler than it was,
stood (in tho attitude in which she hail
arisen from her seat on the side of the bed)
with both hands on the table, her w holo
figure shrinking like that of any weak,1
wihl creature when suddenly alarmed. i
, "Oblige mo by leaving us, if you please," ;
said Lorrimer, to tho landlady. The wo-1
man reluctantly withdrew, and Lorrimer
held the door open to watch her down the'
stairs. He could not help being stagey,
for use is second nature, but ho was thor
oughly in earnest when he turned: "My
poor, dear creature don't mind me talking
to you in this way I'm old enough to be
your father my poor, dear creature, what
on earth do you mean by living in a place
like this?" Bhe had only moved to breathe'
sinco his first entrance to the room, and
her eyes said, " Leave me, for pity's sake!"
if ever eyes said anything. But, as he
paused, the bundle on the bed began
;to move, and a feeble cry came from it.
Bhe darted to it, peeled from it, swiftly and
delicately, the shawl, which infolded it,
and took it to her arms. A baby! "Oh,
Lord!" groaned the manager, with the
tears in his eyes again. " How can you
have the heart to throw away such pros
pects as you hove, when you've got such
chums upon you?"
She looked ut him almost wildly, and;
walked up and down the room rocking thei
crying child in her arms, lie thought the
look defiant, and broke out anew.
"Any grown-up creature has a right toi
starve and be wretched, but, by God!
ina'nm, nobody has a right to ill-treat ai
baby. It's criminal, Mrs. Tregarthen; it's
nothing less than monstrous. How dare
you throw away that child's chances in tho'
world?" Lorrimer trod the boards with
the air of amazed virtue.
"How dare you Reak so to mei"
she demanded, pausing suddenly in her
agitated walk aliout tho room. " What
riht have you hero ?"
" For Ood s sake, don t bo angry with
mei" said Lorrimer, descending from his
place of moral pride. " I'm tho best
friend you have in tho world; lam in
deed." Ho was no longer the representa-1
tivo of virtuo amazed, but had beconio tho
attached old family servitor, und pleuded
with tho last willful descendant of tho
raco he loved.
At this moment thero came a rap at tho
door, and the landlady appeured, bearing n
bulky parcel and a letter.
