nnd a few years passed by as a dream. His little
Christmas tree grew larger, stronger, lovelier. Then
earn' ■ time when the old musician awoke to the
fuct that it was beyond his power systematically
longer to direct Mareeliln»'a studies. A struggle
began to rnge within him. but the warmer the love
within him the clearer was his recognition of her
tilts an. l the stronger Vis conviction that she must
have ..:i..ther master.
"You must lcaru more than I can teach you or
you will not s^t along In tho world." Bald he one
day with a deep slßh. "1 shall take you to another
teacher. You've got to learn more and different

fur you."
"Learn more than you know? Oh, If I could
only play like J'ou! And different music? Don't I

Singular! In a few years the young master had
the :-..i/.<j experience as the old. He, too, aaw the
necessity of placing the wonderful talent growing
epaee In the care of a master of the highest rank;
he ; ■• rcelved that the young {;:''' was destined to
walk the loftiest iinths of art. His mind was mnde
up "Bhe must become the r>ur>!l of the t;re:itof;t

then my friend Epstein in Vienna shall he:ir her
and decide." Did not the prospective parting give
proater rain to the young master than the old?
who shall say? Thus came the day when a still
r?.le. Blender maiden, modestly parbed, stood in
the examination room of the Vienna authority, ac
companied by her teacher and her mother. An
other moment and the little hands rested on the
Ivory keys; a last trustful look into the eyes of her
faithful young <"'■; nd. an I Marcelline played with

would rejoice In such n. pupil. Yet if he should err?
Would that Joseph Joachim could hear her play
