THE WORLD OF LETTERS.
A Sew EdiUe-n f Amy Fye Book,
"Masie Stody tn Germany."
New York, Jan. 19. A new edition baa
recently been issued of Amy Pay's book
entitled "Music Study in Germany." It is
now ten years since the first edition was
issaed, and the sale has been steady for
the book ever since. Miss Fay is a sister-in-law
of Theodore Thomas, as the great
conductor was married to a sister of Miss
Fay recently in Chicago. Mr. Thomas is
aboot to give up his New York residence
and to remove to Chicago, where he is un
der contract to remain three years and
manage the leading musical organisation
of that city. He has lived for ten years in
the same house in New York, jast off Union
square. It is a house which has the repute
of being lucky. It is owned by ex-Mayor
Grace, and he lived in it when he was
elected for the first time mayor of New
York. When he moved to Murray Hill
Mr. Thomas became his tenant, and it
seemed as though from the day be entered
that house his fortune became prosperous,
but his greatest happiness was when a few
months ago he brought the sister of Amy
Fay to it as his bride.
The story of Miss Fay's little book is a
mast interesting one, and it seems as
though her fame was to be established,
not so much in the direction where her
ambition pointed as through the publica
tion of this book, which was originally
written with no idea whatever of publica
tion. Miss Fay was a Chicago girl, origi
nally from the vicinity of Boston. She
early displayed extraordinary talent for
piano playing and a remarkable fondness
and understanding of music. She had as
thorough an education in music as could
be given in the Boston conservatories, but
did not regard her education as sufficient,
and in IStW she went to Germany. At that
time the historian Bancroft was the United
States minister to the Prussian govern
ment, and he was an intimate friend of
some members of Miss Fay's family. She
was able to enjoy special facilities on ac
count of his friendship.
Miss Fay remained in Germany ome five
years, and in that time was brought in
professional contact with the greatest mu
sicians of the world. That brilliant genius
Tansig gave her some of the last lessons of
his life; she saw Wagner many times, and
was one of the first to appreciate him of all
Americans; she was in Berlin at the time
of the Franco-Prussian war. That great
teacher Kullak gave her lessons, and she
was often able to meet such geniuses as
Joachim, Clara Schumann, Von Bulow
and Rubinstein. She was also one of the
private pupils of Liszt, and saw much of
him in his professional and private life.
After this training MiBs Fay returned to
America, where she probably would have
been only locally known as a player of ex
traordinary gifts had it not been for the
book. She became a teacher in the Chicago
conservatory, and seldom appears as a pub
lic performer. During Miss Fay's absence
she wrote letters to her friends at home,
and these letters were brimful of anec
dotes, characterizations of the geniuses of
the musical world, clever analyses of the
talents of these great men and women and
charming bits of description. She wrote
them for private eyes alone, but the letters
were written with such delightful sim
plicity of style, were so lucid and graphic,
and so evidently the reflection of an en
thusiastic soul that they were passed about
from friend to friend and were looked for
with the greatest interest.
When she returned a member of the fam
ily collected the letters and edited them,
taking out such comments as were of a
private nature purely, and they were pub
lished in 1880. The literary and musical
world recognized the book at once as a
work of extraordinary ability, uncon
sciously exercised as it was.
The book brought her fame at once, and
it seems now to have safely passed the test
and become a permanent contribution to
It was in 1870 that she wrote of Wagner:
"Wagner's melodies are so heavily and in
toxicatingly sweet that they are almost
narcotic. His music excites a set of emo
tions that no other music does, and he is a
great original. I always feel as if I would
like to swooti away when I hear his com
positions." Of Joachim she said that "the
pathetic tones he draws from his violin go
through one like a knife." Twenty years
later Miss Fay's judgment of Wagner is
that of every one, although at that time
her opinion would have been regarded as
musical heresy in America. Her descrip
tions of Liszt are delightful and intensely
graphic. Hut we might go on repeating
extracts from the work ad libitum. It is
so free from technical terms that any one
u-.ixy rend it with pleasure.

A (Shrewd Janitor.
The public and private halls in a certain
class of New York apartment houses are
heated by a furnace in the basement. This
furnace is attended by a janitor, who with
his family occupies the habitable portion
of the underground story. The tenants of
one such apartment house have lately
cleared up a great mystery connected with
the erratic actions of the furnace. In mild
weather this furnace gave off such volumes
of heat that not only the halls but every
room in each apartment were thoroughly
warmed;, but each time the mercury got
down in the vicinity of zero the registers
in the halls persisted in giving up nothing
but quantities of ice cold air. In response
to agonized appeals down the speaking
tube the janitor would pile in more coal
and shake down the cinders violently, all
Of which had no perceptible effect above
the basement. The tenant who solved the
mystery was the one who, knowing some
thing about furnaces himself, went down
to the jauitor's domain to investigate mat
ters. He found the atmosphere -of the
basement hot enough to roast apples, and
was at ouce enlightened. Though the fur
nace was ostensibly there to promote the
comfort of those who paid the rent, the
janitor, by closing all the heat pipes, had
kept all the warmth below stairs for him,
