Tregarthen's housekeeper brought the
child a second time, in accordance with
her master's orders. fj0 had done what
she could to make biiu smart and neat,
but his velvet clothes were much damaged,'
and he was too big for them.
" Bring him here," said Tregarthen, who
was stronger than he had been on the pre
vious day, though his eyes were still hol
low, and his unshaven face looked some
what ghastly. "What is your name?"
"Phil," said h boy, looking shyly up
at him, and dropping his eyes again.
"What else!" asked Tregarthen. He
leaned forward from his heaped-up pillows
und fondled the child's head with his thin
hand. The boy murmured something un
intelligible. " What is the other name,
rhili-' I can't hear you."
" I don't think he knows the other name,
sir," said the housekeeper. "I've asked
him lots of times since he got better, but,
he doesn't seem to know it."
"ne has been illf" said Tregarthen,
leaning back again. " No wonder I "
" His poor little arm was broke, sir,"
said the kindly housekeeper, stooping to,
arrange the child's collar, "and he was so
bruised aud drowned it was a wonder he
lived at all."
" Poor fellow!" said Tregarthen. " Como
and sit on the bedside, Phil, and let us
have a talk together. Help him up, nurse.
Where did you come from in the ship 1 " '
" Iiombay, ' said the child, quite read
ily. " And where were you going to ?" i
" And who was with you on the ship t"
" Ayah," said Phil, with a small fist at'
either eye. Then, as by an afterthought,'
"And mamma." '
" It is a curious thing, sir," said the
housekeeper, whispering. "The child's
been crying many a time for Ayah who
ever she may be but he's never once asked
for his mother."
"Is the hhip's name known!" Tregar
then a.-ked. his wasted hand still toying
with the child's hair.
" She was the IiU of Elba, sir," respond
ed the housekeeper, "from Bombay to
Liverpool. A hundred souls aboard, sir,"
she added, lowering her voice again. Tre
garthen looked at the child meaningly,
and then from him, with a glance of in
quiry, to the housekeeper. " Not another
creature,'' sho said in answer.
"Don't cry, Phil," said Tregarthen,
with his hand wandering absently in the
child's curls. "You shall be taken care
of. Take him to Oorbay" (to the house
keeper) " and get fitting clothing for hitn.
You may call cm Penruth, the solicitor,
and ask hitn to come over here at his earli
est convenience. Good-by, Phil, You
will come and see rue agaiu this evening,
won't yon r There's a brave little fellow.
'1 lie housekeeper, hastening to put Tre
garthen's orders into execution, set out for
Gorbay that afternoon, and had the ocean
waif measured for new garments, and
bought underclothes, boots, and collars for
him. She construed her master's wishes
liberally, and when the change was finally
made she saw that he was pleased by it.
But some days before Phil's outfit came
home, Mr. Penruth, eager to secure Tre
garthen as a client, had paid a visit to the
island, and had been invited into the in
"I want you to write to the owners of
the IU of Elba, lately wrecked here," said
Tregarthen, "and to ask for information
respecting the identity of the child who
was saved. Ho far as I can learn, no in
quiries have been made about him."
" Yes, sir," responded Mr. Penruth, pro
ducing a pocket-book, and softening the
point of a pencil with his lips. "The
child's name, Mr. Tregarthen?"
" He calls himself Phil," said Tregar
then. " His mother and nurse were
aboard. It will be easy for the owners to
Mr. Penruth took a respectful leave of
his new client, and went below to have a '
look at Phil. Phil was produced, but did
not take kindly to Mr. Penruth, and being !
somewhat badgered in the legal manner by :
that gentleman, cut the knot of difficulty
by protesting that he was Phil, pure and I
simple, and had no other name.
The solicitor put himself in correspond-'
cnee with tho owners of the ill-fated ship, '
and learned from them that a Mrs. Mau-
rice, with a child and a native nurse, had i
tailed from Bombay aboard the IiU o
EHxi, but no inquiries had been made con
?erning them since the news of the wreck
jai reached London. Before this scanty
news arrived, Tregarthen was once more
st liberty, and he and the child were be-1
ginning to .feel at home with each other.
Phil was at the Sea-gate gathering shells
within thirty yards of the gaunt bones of
the wreck when his rescuer walked feebly
out in search of him, bearing the solic
itor's letter in his hand. He sat upon a
bowlder, uud the boy came running up to
"Phil Maurice," said Tregarthen, put
ting his hands round the little fellow.
ne V: "re vou Phil Maurical"
"Yes," said Thil, with so little trace of
doubt or hesitation, that the problem was
bald to be finally solved.
Tregarthen had for a aecond time made
up his mind that he had no more faith or
affection to bestow upon any momber of
tha human race, and now for the second
time he found his own belief in himself put
to confusion. For one thing, he had risked
bis life, aud had very nearly lost it, to save
the child; and though ha honestly thought
life a possession which was of much mora
weight than value, the risk endeared the
boy to hitn. For another thing, the boy
himself was a delightful little fellow, full
cf fearless and affectionate ways, and in
tpite of disappointment and heart-break,
Tret;arthen was still young, and the cur
rent in his veins ran warm.
It turned out that Phil's education had
been totally neglected. He was not merely
unable to read and write, but he had not
n been Informed of the existence of those
accomplishment. But there was not a
trace of vulgarity or fault breedini
about him, and only an odd habit of seize-
ing on a word of ITindooataneo when b
chanced to forget ita English equivalent
betrayed the curious isolation in which ha
had been bred, Tregarthen taught hitn
his letters, aud the old housekeeper super
intended his pothooks and hangers with
great diligence. When the rescuer and
his rescued came to be on familiar terms
Phil was easily pursuaded to set forth his
own simple annals. For the most part
they related to his Ayah, a syce, called
Jeb, and a pony called Ben. He bad
plcaed up one or two things as children
will and he knew that mamma was a
widow, and that the commissioner wanted
to marry her, and that she did not like the
commissioner. But all their talks to
gether revealed no trustworthy clue, and
time went by, and nobody asked for Phil
or for Mrs. Maurice at the London agent's
offices. Mr. Fenruth'g advertisements re
mained unanswered, and Phil was uni
dentified. The people of Gorbay and Its neighbor
hood were not to be mollified iu respect to
Tregarthen, either by the courage he had
displayed or the kindness of heart which
prompted hitn to give his ocean waif a per
manent refuge. A man's wife is his own
flesh and blood, and charity begins at
home. There were ladies and gentlemen
who knew by second sight, perhaps every
step of the road Tregartheu and his wife
had traveled before his wickedness drove
her from him, and these gifted people were
able to recite, and did recite to interested
audiences, long conversations between the
ill-assorted pair On the whole, Tregar
then's desire to be lonely began to win such
practical acceptance that the island was
almost another Juan Fernandei to him, and
Phil became hit boy Friday.
The boy in a little while began to know
that there were hours when his protector
was not to be disturbed, and he
gathered from the few with whom he
came in contact vague notions of
mystery and of evil in connection with
these periods of seclusion. Tregarthen
had gone back to his mad studies, and, in
course of time, he became more deeply ab
soebed than ever. He took to the practi
cal pursuit of chemistry, and had a labora
tory set up in a sound chamber in the de
serted side of the old house. Thence
glowed strange lights at unholy hours, and
the islanders made up their minds that the
last of the Tregarthens had sold himself to
the powers of evil
Few children have had so curious a
breeding as fell to the lot of Tregarthen's
jtroltye, yet the lad throve, and grew lusty
in mind and body. He swam and boated
and fished and bird's-nested, and spent
whole nights tossing out at ae& with the
island fishermen, to tho great terror of the
housekeeper, who grew to love him and
tremble for him as if he had been a child
of her own. He hated books, and would
have none of them if he could help it; but
he loved a yarn with all his soul, and spent
rapt hours in listening to the rambling
stories of any old mariner, brown with
sea-salt and speckled from head to foot
with fish-scales, whom he could persuade to
talk to him. He learned all the legends of
the coast and all the ballads known to the
island. These last he sang in ludicrous
imitation of the local tone and style; but
though he began to see less of Tregarthen
than of anybody else in the place, he
seemed to catch his phrases and his cul
tured accent, as if he felt as perhaps he
did that there was a closer kinship be
tween the master of the island and himself
than the rougher sort of folk could claim
with him. The legends aud the ballads
gave a healthy stimulus to his imagination,
and there was no danger of a lad's mind
being starved whilst he was allowed such
fr.v communication with nature as Phil
i here are chronicles of prodigious events
in the world's history where great spaces
of time go by in the ticking of a
watch. Unto Eber, the son of Selah,
were born two sons, and the name of
one was Peleg, "because in his days the
earth was divided." In that curt but as
tounding phrase the story of Peleg opens
and ceases. The modern historian handles
people and events with greater fullness and
a more particular precision, but even he
may be forgiven if in a moment or so he
dreams of the lapse of uneventful years.
A lad growing up in heaven's free air
and storms to be a man, and to know the
ways of birds and fishes, and trees and
flowers, and clouds and winds, and to love
and wonder with an open heart and soul.
A man growing down in a cramped labora
tory, intent on mastering a secret which be
knew to be worthless a secret which would
be a very gift of the devil to any man who
might suprise it, even if it existed shut
ting out the better half of himself from
communion with the baser, and thereby
feeding the baser with all his native forces
and starving the better to a shadow.
There in the main is the history of seven
Phil, by this time a strapping Jad, who
could thrash the young Penruths, respec
tively three and four years his senior,
whenever they ventured on the island, and
who pretty generally did it (being provoked
thereto by town-grown satire in the first
instance), was hunting one day in the li
brary for a gut-line which he remembered
to have stowed away a month or two be
fore, using one of Tregarthen's neglected
volumes as a winding-block. After a lit
tle time he found it and began to unwind
it from the book.
The fact that the volume that he thus
handled was an early and somewhat rare
copy of the "Tempest," by Mr. William
Shakespeare, was nothing to Phil; but
though he knew as little as he thought, his
hour for entering on another life than the
one he had hitherto known had stolen
upon him. The hooked end of the line
had been set within the book, so that a
firm purchase upon the rest might . be
taken, and now the hooks were fastened
in a page or two. As he went about to
disentanglo them his eyes fell on a passage
that interested him;
"The strong-based promontory
Have I made shake, and by the spurs
The pine and cedar; graves nt my command
Have waked their kleepers, oped, aud let
i!vm.v so-potent art."
Tbs was worth Inquiring into. Fbil '
not ignorant of the reputation which clung
to his protector, but to a child common
places are so wonderful that wonders have
a cnance or seeming commonplace, and he
had never been amazed or frightened, or
moved in any way, by the island chatter
which had Tregarthen for its mark. The
first notion that entered Phil's mind waa
that this wes some fellow in Arthur's line
of business. (Tregarthen, in some doubt
as to the relationship the boy should beat
to him, had ordered that Phil should ad
dress him by his Christian name.) Bo,
throwmg down the b, he took a scat at
the table, and being by nature inclined to
be thorough in all things, he turned the
leaves back until he came to the beginning
of the drama, and for tho first time in hie

least suspecting It, bad been a poet from
his cradle, and be only needed to see the
greatest of the craft into which he himself
! was born to fall prostrate before him and
Heading, hitherto the greatest of earthly
bores to Phil, became his chief delight.
Tregarthen's library was especially rich ia
poetry and drama, and every day Phil
plunged headlong into some new stream
of joy, and bathed in it To rush down
to the Sea-gate with a smuggled volume,
to lay it in the boat and pull out into the
open, then to ship his sculls and lie down
full length, and read, read, read until hun
ger drove him home this was his joy. As
a matter of course, It was not long before
he began to write and imitate, and he
wept, and flushed, and trembled over much
degraded fustian of his own making, the
which he remembered in after years with
shame and pleasure. Even Tregarthen,
absent as he was, and absorbed in bis crazy
studies, began to notice a change in him,
and finding him studiously inclined, under
took to direct his reading, but soon forgot
it, having done no more than to direct bis
pupil's attention to John Locke and the
Keverend Mr. Paley, with whom Phil at
once declined to hold any commerce what
ever. The seasons pursued each other, and in
due course came round the tenth anni
versary of Phil's rescue by Tregarthen.
This, by tacit consent, waa reckoned as the
lad's seventeenth birthday, and the past,
of course, was dim to him. He seemed to
have spent all his life on the island ; and
now that be knew of the great world
through books, and was beginning to be
fired by secret ambitions about his own
future, he began also to long for wider
spaces and a communion with the world.
"Arthur," he said, sitting opposite to hii
protector, "I'm seventeen to-day."
Tregarthen looked up, absently at first,
but with a growing interest in his eyei.
" Seventeen V he said, with a wondering
accent. "Stand up, Phil. Let me look
Phil stood up, tall and slim, brown-faced
and brown-handed. Tregarthen examined
hitn critically. Fine forehead, white as a
lady's; sensible eyes of dark gray, under
well-marked brows; nose large but deli
cate; mouth sensitive and firm; chin deli
cate but decided. While the examination
which resulted in these observations went
on, Phil stood at ease, with an elbow on
the mantel-piece, and surveyed the sur
veyor. "Seventeen, Phil 1 " said Tregarthen.
His eyes took their customary inward look,
and be said, with something of an inward
tone: "Time flies time flies."
" Arthur," said Phil, ' I waut to see the
" My poor Phil," said Tregarthen, " If I
could advise you, you would leave the
world unseen. It is a poor show, when
you have seen it all, Phil and it will give
you many a heartache."
' I want to see it, for all that," Phil
"I have been too much centered in my
own pursuits, perhaps," said Tregarthen;
though they are exigent enough to shut out
everything else in the world, and can only
be fitly followed when they succeed in
doing that. But I took some duties iu
band fur you, ltiil. and I am afraid that I
neglected them. What do you know f
"Nothing," Phil answered.
" iou have had the run of the library,"
said Tregarthen, " and I have seen you
busy in it for years past."
"Uh, books," said Phil; "I know the
library pretty well by heart. But I know
nothing else." Tregarthens look seemed
to disconcert him here, and he began to
walk about the room. ' I want to go into
the world, Arthur, and to mix with men
" To catch the butterfly and rub all the
paint away," returned Tregarthen. "Do you
think manly honor a fine thing, Phil Do
you think womanly virtue a fine thing I
I have seen you at the poet, and I have
found here and there a scrap of your own
verses." Phil blushed like fire. "There
is very little honor in the world, Phil, there
is very little virtue. You will find men
and women mean and stupid, and cruel
and cowardly. You will find that they all
pretend to worship lofty ideals which they
trample under foot. You will find them
incredulous of everything by which they
profess to rule their lives, and bound body
and soul to every baseness they pretend to
despise. You had belter stay with me,
Phil. I can put a great purpose in your
bands, if you prove fit for it perhaps a
He checked himself there, and his heart
yearned a little, remembering that He had
been happy before he had learned his bitter
lessons, and that no man hail striven to
dash his happiness until the time came.
" The proverb is something musty," he
said after a turn or two about the room:
"'If willful will to water, willful must
drink.' What do you want in the great
" Tbe great world itself," said Phil, with
an embarrassed laugh. " I want to see it,
Arthur. I want Perhaps," he went on,
cutting down at once to the very core of
bis thought " perhaps you were unlucky,
you know, Arthur, and perhaps I may be
"Ah, my lad," said Tregarthen, looking
at him with genuine pity and affection;
" all men think all men mortal but them
selves. Your golden idols turn out clay I
No, no. You waste friendship on a fool,
or tire hope in following a shadow, or
spend the gold of your heart to buy the
leaden counters of a judel No, no. Not
you. Another man may. You can fancy
that. But not yourself." He checked him
self again, hut this time with an almost
despairing bitterness. Was it of any use
io preuch the stale moral 1 None, " Go
Into the world, ind,- U jtai wiil, if yon
mug , and God grant you find it n bettor
place than it was when I knew it."
"I am not having you, Arthur," said
tho lad, with evident strong feeling. " But
I inuKt do something, I must fit myself for
life mustn't I i"
" I suppose so, Phil," answered Tregar
then; and there the conference ended.
A week luter caino a letter a rarity at
Tregarthen. The searcher after the philos
opher's stono read it, and threw it over the
table to Phil.
" You had better go over to Gorbny,"
he said, "and order what you neod. You
may start as soon as you are ready. Gal
lium was my tutor, and ho is a very good
man as men go."
Phil rend the letter, and found it signed
by one Uobert Cnlhem, who expressed his
willingness to receive Mr. Tregarthen'
" young friend," and do his best for him
Mr. Calhem dated from Guidon Square.
" What am I to do at Mr. Calhom's, Ar
thur I" asked Phil.
" You will find him a very good coach,
if you care to study," said Tregarthen.
' If you don't care to study, you will find
him a reasonable Mentor in more important
matters than mere book-loarnlng. You
bad bolter go over to Gorbay."
Phil started for Gorbay with anything
but his common fooling of elasticity. Tre
garthen's views of the world might be true
after all, and it was evident that he was
sorry for I'hil, and in his own mind pro
phesied woes for hitn. But at seventeen
such reflections as those with which Tregar
then had bothered the lad were not likely
to linger .'ong, and in effect he made his
preparations and started on his townward
journey with a heart full of hope.
Town was delightful, Mr. Calbein was
passably agreeable, tho theaters were a
source of such wonder and delight as Phil
in his brightest dreams bad never bargained
for. Tregarthen had stipulated that ho
should huve a week or two of properly reg
ulated freedom; and when Phil came to
the end of his tether ho elected to work,
and began in tho course of two or three
months to make amazing progress with the
Greek and Latin tongues. As time went
on this progress began to look phenomenal,
and the youngster translated divers odes
and elegiacs with such grace and flnenass
that the couch went round bragging of his
pupil, and displaying his exercises tiomo
titnes cunningly touched up by his own
hand, iu such wise that had the young poet
seen them ho would have torn his huir at
his heartless accuracy.
It came to pass that one evening, in a
literary drawing-room of the fourth class
or thereabouts, the host had caught a lion.
Somebody knew tho lion whom the host
know, and the great creature was ensnared
by proxy. Mr. Calhoni was there, aud the
lion being a poet, the coach felt more than
commonly tempted to trot out hix own po
"Do you know, Mr. Marsh," he said, edg
ing himself in among tho lion's admirers,
' I have under my care at this moment a
young gentleman in whom I believe you
would feel tho deepest interest."
" Indeed f " said the poet, with an air as
of boredom heroically suppressed.
" Ho is not yet eighteen," proclaimed Mr.
Cnlhem, finding his opportunity in the si
lence of the circle, "and this is his render
ing of the famous ' Ode to Pyriha.'
And tho tutor plunged, with a harsh,
holastic tone, into a recital of the labors
"Remarkable!" said Mr. Marsh, at the
close of his performance His glance wan
dered around the room in a sort of patient
entreaty. Ho was looking for the man who
had brought him to take him away again
" The really remarkable thing Is," pur
sued Mr. I'alhem, " that he has had no
classical training whatever. He was bred
in a perfect Bceutia a little island off the
Cornish coast Tregarthen."
" Tregarthen i " The lion was interested
on a sudden.
"Do you know Tregarthen?" asked Mr.
" I have visited the place," returned the
poet. " My old pupil, Tregarthen of Tre
