What it was that prevented IionaM
Marsh from carrying out this barely-fornied
intention of his was seureely worth inquir
ing. Homo sens; that ho had no right to
intrudu upon Mrs. Tregitrtheu's affairs,
lioino feeling that by a pretense of
being interested in a youngster's
verses he might possibly set that young
ster on a wrong track for life, and
some little tinge of personal disquietude, at
tho open adulation of Mr. Calheui, wero
probably mingled together, and between
them had strength enough to leave him un
decided. Anyhow, whatever motives ani
mated liitu, or left him unanimuted, ho
' Gossamer: a Comedy, In Three Acta,''
a production of Mr. Honald Marsh's eu,
was playing at this time at the Mirror
Theater, and Miss Churchill was the hero
ine of the piece. The poet liked to see his
own work now and again, and an evening
or two after his encounter with the tutor
he looked in for the second act, aiid found
himself seated beside no less a person than
Calhuu, who, with a humble effusiveness,
recognized him at once, and immediately
on the fall of the curtain presented 1'hil.
lie Lad already been telling Phil, in an
easy, unassuming sort of way, and as if he
wero not bursting with pride about the
matter at all, that he had encountered the
author of this charming work a night or
two ago at the house of their mututil
friend brown, and now, on tho author's un-
expected appearance, he had nudged and
whisered to Phil, so that the poet had had
time to become conscious of a slim youth,
with fine eyes, who tok sly looks at him
with an expression of devotioi".
"This, Mr. Marsh, said Cclhem, "is Mr.
Maurice, the young gentleman of whom I
spoke on Sunday evening. This, Mr. Mau
rice, is Mr. Roland Marsh, the author of
the lovely comedy we have just had the
pleasure of witnessing."
Phil accepted tho poet's hand with a
senso of woiihip. He hud never seen a
live oet before; ho was very young, and
h" had laughed aloud and wept inwardly
over the comedy, so that to meet the au
thor of it was like coming into a holy
place. He said something in a hot shyness
alout the beauty of the work, aud the poet
was pleased to have touched youth so
keenly, and took a great fancy to the in
genuous eyes and handsome face of the
'The proper thing if one wanted to look
like a man of the world who kuew London
seemed to the tutor to go to " Evans's"
after the play and sup. He proposed this;
and the poet, who had known the house in
his youth, after a little hesitation, con
sented to make one of the party. Calheui,
mighty proud of his distinguished guest,
led the way ; and having secured a place,
ordered oysters, and would, but for the
protecting influence of the poet, have
coupled champagne with them.
Phil, under the genial influences of the
theatre, the society of the poet, and supper
at a place so novel to his experiences,
began to lose the chief part of bis shyness
and to talk. He was full of Miss Church
ill, and rather more than half in love with
her, and the poet was pleased by his rap
tures. " I have not been in London long," said
the boy, "and I never saw a theater until
I came here, so that I can't pretend to be a
judge; but I should think sho is the finest
actress in the world."
"She stands admittedly at the head of
her own school," said Calhem. "At least,"
deferring to the poet, " I believe so."
" Why," cried Phil, flushing with shy
ness and enthusiasm, " when she spoke that
'To me regret and memory are the f-anie,'
it wasn't like acting. It was like seeing a
slow heart-break. Aud how beautiful she
"A fine woman," said Calhem, "and a
fine actress, beyond a doubt! Mr. Mau
rice," he added, with that manner of al
lowance which more than anything else in
the world makes a man abominable in a
boy's eyes, "is at tho age of enthusi
asm." "And so am I," said Marsh, covering
Phil from the Are of patronage, " happily
for myself. Not to admire is an art for a
" Yet there was a great poet, sir," said
the tutor, "who confessed it all the art ho
"To make men happy," returned Marsh.
"And that is a creed for a cynic. Of all
melancholy spectacles in the world, Mr.
Maurice, a gray heart in a green body is
the most lamentable. We are all egoti.-.ts,
and we like to coddlo ourselves with warm
and pleasant fancies; aud so, when wo
have lost our youth, we say it was a giddy,
irresponsible, foolish time; as if a gate
post should deride a tree, or the dried rose
leaves in a Dresden saucer rustle them
selves with laughter at a rose."
Phil, already charmed with the poet's
drama, was delighted at this. "That,"
said he to himself, " is how a poet ought to
talk I What would life be worth if one
were never to be young f"
" Your simile carries you a little too far,
sir," said Calhem, who was somewhat uet
tled. A schoolmaster is generally more
used to reproving than to reproof. " Tho
perfect adjuuet would be a dead man
thinking poorly of a live one. Though, to
my mind, tho responsible gravity of ma
ture life is a good exchange for the irre
sponsible enthusiasm of youth."
"And what does Mr. Maurice say to
this" asked Marsh.
"Why, Bir," said rhil, "Nobody thinks
worse of the oldest apple-tree because it
has blossoms now and then." Marsh
laughed, but Calhem looked puzzled and
"Shall we goT said the poet. Do you
walk home, Mr. Calhem? My road lies
past your house."
They walked to Golden Square together,
and, to the tutor's chagrin, the eminent
person addressed himself chiefly to Phil,
and at parting, it was the youngster and
not his tutor to whom he presented his
" Come and see me when you have time,"
ho said; "I am always at home until two
o'clock. Come up to-morrow."
l'hil promised, delightedly, and scarcely
knew whether the poet or his works wero
the most charming. Calhem, who was
anything but a bad fellow at bottom, got
out of his chagrin in an hour or two, and
by the time When he had smoked his nightly
pipe, and was ready for lied, ho began to
think it natural thjit Marshshouli rather
take a bright youngster with a prospect,
like Phil, than to a middle-aged tutor, with
next to no prosjiect, like himself,
"I dropped out of thu running a long
time ago," said he, not without a little
ineluucholy in his thoughts; "liowliuust
be contented to stand m my own corner
and see boys g.j j,a-t me. It s the way of
Phil went off gaily next morning, and
found Mr. .Mar.di at home, and had a bright
talk with him. If Phil were pleased with
his host and there was little doubt of that
MarU was the iimi-h pleased of the two.
The lad s bright face and hopeful convers.)
did him go. "I. II,. felt rather wicked, how
ever, when he began to draw his guest out
about Tregari lien, and as if he were doing
an underhand thing in listening to him.
Phil describe the U'and ami tho house,
told him ipmiitt things about the score of
inlanders, who were nil oddities in their
way, as they were likely to be (though tho
historian hud never thought them so until
they grew curious by rontrt with tho
people, of the wider ..rld iu which he now
moved,) and oven repeated one or two won
derful old ballads, which .N.firklcd lor thu
philulogi-t, but were, for anybody else,
simply and merely droll.
"And what manner of man is Mr. Tre
gurtlien f" a.-ked M;u.h, at length.
" Oh, Arthur :" -aid l'hil. The beat man
in the world, 1 think. He is a great deal
absorbed in scientilie pursuits, chemistry,
and all that, and the Wanders havo made
up their minds that he holds correspondence
with the devil. Ntw, I shouldn't be
surprised at finding him engaged
iu converse with spiritual agencies of
another sort, for he's a man with
out a fault, lie's u gentleman," cried
Phil, enthu-iu.-iticaliy ; "from his soul
to his skin :"'
This was hardly what the poet had ex
pected to le nr, though it was natural that
Tivgurtheu'sward should think well of his
' Ho saved your life, I think;''
! He did." said l'hil, his cheeks flushing.
"I've heard old Reuben 1'ollarth tell tho
story many a tune, One of the men on
board wo were on the L ie of Elba, from
Bombay to Liverpool tied me to a spar
and threw me overboard just before tho
smash came. I can remember crying and
begging h.m not to do it, and fighting be
fore I was tied, but 1 can't recall anything
after that. It was such a night, old 1'ol
larth says, as no living man can remember.
I've known the west wind blowing there,
and the waves coming in at the Sea-gate,
but the old man savs that what I've hxjked
at is no more than a boy could niakp by
stirring a puddle with a stick in compari
son to what it was that night. I drifted
up suiiiehow, with tho spur, and Arthur

stunned Inm: but old l'oliarth had time to
grip at the sj.ir. and Lis son to d: hold of
him, and ii:il 1'ollarth took hold of Ren,
aud the rest u!l held on, and tin: wave went,
back without us. Arthur was a month iu
bed after it, aud was cruzy half the time
Marsh felt something of the glow Phil's
heart experienced as this tale was told.
The tw o not merely parted well pleased
with each other, but held each other in
inin 1 and met frequently, and iu a little
while became intimates aud friends. It
was natural that l'hil should turn often,
in his s eech with Marsh, to Tregartheu
Island and its owner. And thero gradually
grew up in the poet's mind thej clearest
image of the man a mournful mid tender
hearted cynic, with ft craze.
" His wife ran away from him," said
l'hil speaking of him one day. " The peo
ple ou the island and the people at Oorbay
always declare thst he ill-used her, or was
guilty of some dreadful villainy, but I
know better. Nobody ever knew Arthur
do a mean thing nobody ever knew him
to do a mean thing or a cowardly thing."
When he was alone again Phil's mind
was so occupied with his protector that ho
must needs sit down and write to him in
stanter. Tregarthan had written, ft week
or two before: "Your letters are the only
murmurs of tho world that reneli me, and
are all 1 care to reach me." Rooks, plays,
and pictures tilled the ybungter's head
chiefly, and it was mainly of them that ho
"I have made a most fortunate acquaint
ance," wrote l'hil, "in the person of Mr.
Ronald Marsh, one of the most distinguis,-d
of our modern poets. He is the author of
a comedy called ' Gossamer,' now being
performed at the Mirror, with which I was
enchanted. Tho chief part is taken by
Miss Churchill, who is simply divine. I
have seen all tho principal actors and ac
tresses now, and there is nobody w hocoines
near Miss Churchill." Then followed criti
bism: "There is about this admirable ar
tist a grace and refinement which other
actresses lack. You are sure at first sight
that she is a gentlewoman. Perhaps her
rarest charm is her voice, which
is nvirvelously sweet, and has un
underlying note of melancholy even in
its most joyous passages. Not that it, in
vests her comedy with u tinge of the maud
lin, or that she plays a gay scene iu any
but the brightest manner; but her voice
softens tho asperities of raillery, and seems
to assure you of a tender heart."
There was a good deal more of this, and
Tregartheu rend it with strange feelings.
The heart has wounds sometimes which
will not close until death applies his infalli
ble heal-all. Tregarthen's heart was thus
wounded. Scorn is a poor plaster for such
a sore as he carried, hut he knew of no
other, or cared to apply no others. For
getfulaess was out of his reach.
When ho read this letter of Phil's his
first impulse was to sit down and warn tho
lad of women at large; hut a little reflec
tion told him w hat u hopeless task that
was how little likely to bo prosperous iu
any case how very unlikely to bo prosper
ous iu the caao of a vivid and impetuous
lad like Phil, who was born to fall in lovo,
as the sparks fly upward. Ho went back
to his books and his crucibles and his mad
experiments, and left the youngster un
answered altogether for the time. When
in a week or two another letter came, ho
expected to find something more of Miss
Churchill, and he did not know whether
relief or disappointment were tho greater
when ho found no mention of her. Phil's
homeward letters touched Miss Churchill
no more, and there wero reasons for this
which would have disturbed Tregartheu
had ho known them.
When Ronald Marsh and his young
friend talked of Tregartheu, the poet had
occasionally to listen to second hand dia
tribes against women, of whom his young
friend knew, perhaps, as little as could well
be known. These, being inspired by Tre
gartheu, naturally reflected on Tregarthen's
wife; but for a time Marsh was perforce
contented to dispute them on general
grounds, and to Instruct Phil thut no maij
was ever truly good who could so libel one
half of humanity. He told l'hil that s
chivalrous attitude toward women was es
sciitiul to auy male human creature who
desired to bo a man, aud much more to the
Now, tho young man was beginning to
discover thut ho was by no nutans a mis
ogynist, but ho would answer, "Truth be
fore sentiment. I know ono truly good
man tho best man in tho world so far
the kindest-hearted, the purest-minded,
and most honorable and ho thinks ex
tremely ill of women. Perhaps he gen
eralizes too much from one particular
case" (tho young fellow had wonderfully
philosophical airs ut this time, and talked
with tho gravity of a grandfather); "but,
if he does, tho one caso was probably bad
enough to justify him."
" Perhaps so," said the poet. " Cy-tho-way,
Phil, did you ever meet Miss Church
" No," said l'hil.
"Should you like to meet herf"
"Like to meet her;" suid Phil. "I'd go
from here to the Mirror on my hands aud
kiMcs to meet her."
"That is not at all necessary," said
Marth, smiling; "we can take a cab. lie
hero at twelve o'clock to-morrow, and we
will drive down to thu theater together."
Phil went away uplifted ut the prospect,
and sat far into the night slaving at the
'To w bat dim Blade with nlry voices tilled

This production was addressed to Miss
Churchill, us Hertha, in "Gossamer," and
the young versifier knelt at the shrine of
Miss Churchill's perfections in such ardor
as oidy a young versifier knows. The
quality of the verse produced has little to
do with the warmth of sentiment experi
enced. Young men uud young women
write wol'ul nonsense soino times over
which they thrill and weep undlienmas
though they were so many Appollos nud
Supphos; and the fact that Phil really was
a poet mado him no warmer than he would
have felt if he had been altogether hollow
headed. The difference is, that the poet
gets his thrills and tears upon the paper,
while, with the other sort, ull stops at tho
finger-tips and will dribble nut a hair's
Of course he had had a thousand temp
tations to expose his verses, or some of
them, to a real and approved poet, when ho
fVund himself admitted to intimacy with
one; but he had always blushed at them, as
the pretty Jane blushes when sho hears in
her day-dream the w urdsof courtship which
are not yet spoken. Rut now ho so loved
and innocently worshiped his own fancies,
as set forth iu this particular sonnet, that
the temptation assailed him with irrestiblo
force; and when ho called upon Marsh, as
arranged, he produced the manuscript, with
much confusion, and asked him to read it.
"Would you mind reading this. Mr.
Marsh!" ho said, bhishingly. "There are
only fourteen lines, and it can't bore you
long. It may be dreadful rubbish "
" Let me see," returned the poet. He
read tho verses with a grave face. " Shall
I print this for ynuf" he asked. " We pay
a guinea a page for verse, and a sonnet
can stand by itself."
These arc commercial days when even
poets go into business, uud Marsh, as Phil
knew, was proprietor of a magazine. The
author of the sonnet was overwhelmed.
"If you think it worth printing," he
said, with becoming diffidence.
" Yes," said Marsh, " I think it very well
worth printing very well worth ft indeed.
And now," locking the sonnet in his desk,
"if you are ready, we will start. Smith
reads his new play to-day, and I have
promised to bo thero. He was my Collabo
raleur for two or three j'ears, and is ono of

Altogether, heaven seemed opening on
Master l'hil this morning. William John
Smith, author of tho slain and buried
"Demogorgon," was in the green room,
with his roll of manuscript, when the poet
and his companion reached the theater, and
Miss Churchill arrived a littlo later. Lor
rimer was there also a trlflo obese by this
time, and more rubicund than ever. The
Mirror had a star company, and l'hil saw
near at hand several celebrities whom he
had hitherto only beheld upon tho stage.
To be near theso celebrated people when
they worn the garments of every-day life,
and to hear them talk without book, was
a treat to tho novice. The play was read
and applauded. Then the players drew for
tiie most part in a knot around William
John Smith, and asked about his ideas for
tnis stroke of business and that stroke of
business, for the said Smith had grown
mighty, and it was profitable or might be
to bo interested in his work, and to give
him a favorable impression about one's art
It was noticeablo to Phil that tho poet,
for some reason as yet unknown, was grad
ually becoming less anil less at his ease
w 'lilethe lending of tho play went on, and
this somew hut dashed his own interest iu
the business. Now for a time Marsh de
serted lliil altogether, aud left him stand

crossed tho room and addressed Miss
