I WAS so sorry to learn of the death of
Mr. Charles B. Hart, tho father of Mrs.

Tommy Hart. He had been 111 for several
weeks, I understand, 'and the end was ex
pected several days before "it enme. Mr.
Hart had long been prominent in business
and social affairs in thl'Telty. Ho was a
great favorite with men and his death will
be greatly regretted. Ho leaves a wife
and three children. Mrs. Hart was Miss
'Ida Hill. Tommy Hart, the younger son,
who, is In the aviation school at Princeton,
was married last May to Miss Margaret
Smith, of this city?' Mr.sWilllam B. Hart
married Miss Nina Justice several years
ago.
HE IS a lieutenant- In the regular army
and Is now over there In France, nnd
before that he went to the University ot
Pennsylvania, but was never1 very strong
on French. In fact, he "got through" with
out takjng up that delightful subject at
ail. However, now that 'he Is stationed
In a little French village where even the
simplest things must be asked for in a
foreign language, he has taken out his
book and set to work in earnest to learn
, to "parlez-vous."
In the meantime she has decided to brusb
up her French .this' winter, .because she
does not want to, be far behind wtftn he
comes home. And In his lust letter to
HER he wrote that he had already learned
ten French words! .And what. do you sup
pose three of them were? "Mercy," "tray

RICH QUARTET OPENS
CHAMBER MUSIC SEASON

noon, OrlKln'tlly this concert w.is In have
been given by the MJpi.ituio Orchestra, but
owing to war conditions this oiR.iiilrutlon
was compelled to disband Then the Society
of Ancient Instruments was substituted, but
vi hen on Thursday th'cy had not ct nadiid"
this country from Franco .Mr Itich and his
associates wore netted to give the i9nccrt,
and nlthoush they had hcarcoly hi-gun theii
rehearsals for the season they consented
The quartet Is composed of Thaildeus lllch,.
first violin; lledda van don Heemt. Betimd
violin; Kmlle Kcrlr, viola, and Hans KlndloC.
'cello, the same personnel ns last J ear, ex
cept that Mr. Perlr succeeds Mr Lorenz as
viola, the latter having returned to h la for
mer chair In the fltst violins of the Phila
delphia Orchestra and Riven up the viola
Mr Fertr, the new itymberof the qu.ntet,
showed a Targe trme of bi.iutlful ciuulltv. a
faultless sense of rh)thm nnd a wide ex
perience In tho Intricacies of string quartet
playing."
The compositions played wore the qu.utet
In B flat opus 18, No .. "I Heelhovenuind
the D 'major iiuartet of Bortidine. Mr. Rich
and his associates lean more toward a
spontaneous and emntlqnal ltiidllhin than
toward tho stricter ilaislc luterpivtallon,
with Ihe Inevitable result that they reached
their highest point both In details of. pel-,
formahce nnd of tonal beauty ln the slovv
movenienl of the Hoethovon number, a move,
ment of the great depth of feeling as well
as of puio harmonic nnd molodlc beauls. and
ln the nocturne -of the Ilorodinn quartet
In both these flumheis, but especially In tho
Bccthoveh.'the quaHet attained a very hlxh
pdlnt ot ensemble pUylng The same M le
of Interpretation, also led to taking the-first
movement of the Borodino at a ver mod
erate tempo,, thereby Inwstliic It with more
sent'ment and lets vigor than generally
marks Its reading ,
The' quartet deserves the highest praise
for triklng over this open date on little jnore
than n flav'a notice, w hell there was not
sufficient time to glvo the woiks an adequate
number of rehearsals. Their difficulties were
further Increased by the exceedingly damp
weather, vvhlch made It almost Impossible U
keep the Instruments In tune nnd piovent
"whistling." Strings broke m the v'ollns
both of Mr. Rich nnd Mr van den Beemt
during the poncert, in one Instance obliging
the players to stop ln the finale of the.
Beethoven.
In- the face of all tin so difficulties tho
playing of the quartet was lemnrkalily good.
Mr. Ferlr fits Into the organization ad
mirably nnd showrd himself to be a distinct
acquisition to Philadelphia's musical colon
The quartet still sits In the way reintroduced
here by tho Flonzalejs, hut not original with
them : that Is, the violins seated Hide by side,
Instead of opposite, each other It wan orig
inated by the Ferdinand David Quartet about
1835, was taken up by Joachim Quartet for
....nn nnd fried for a while by the
Knelsel Quartet, by all three of whom It was
abandoned. Tne reason, which w jirni
yesterday, Is the'extrrme dlfliculty In getting
a perfect tona balance ot tho middle voices
from tlM poslt'ons they ocoup, especially
In thirds and sixths. This. Is a matter of
great Importance ln the classics, Miut not of
so much Import in modern quartets, where
the voices frequently ctobs and -nil the parts
are much diffused
It is to be hoped that the WcJi Quartet,
which H capable of taking- a position equal
. .hot nt nnv ouartct In America, will be
"heard again later In the season, either In
the concerts-or ma imviwr u,umv i,).-"'"

CHAPTER I (Contiiiiictl)
MY HKAilT sank within me Abovo nil
things, I knew 1 must keep my counte
nance Tho least sign of emlinrrnssment and
1 was lost Yet 1 felt the blood fleeing from
my face nnd I was glad I stood In the
shadow
A knock camo to the door. Tho elderly
chamberlain who Imd met inn outside ap
peared "Your Majesty will excuse me Oen

port 1'rrscmlj, pies(tul.v," was the answer In
an Inltajilo (one. 'I am engaged Just
now. "
The tld I'nuitler paused li resolutely for a
moment
"Well, wlut Is It, what Is 117"
"Dispatch's from (lener.il Headquarters,
Your Majest) The Oeneral asked me to sny
the matter was urgent ' '
The Knlfcr wakened In an Instant.
"llrlng him In ' Then, to Plesseh. he add
ed in a voice from whlih all mirth had van
ished ln accents of gloom
"At this hour, I'lessen" if things have
again gone wrong on tho Snmme'"
An itllcer came In qulrklv , rigid with n
frozen face, helmet on head poet folio un
der his arm The ICnlser vvnlked the length
of the room to his disk and sat down Pies
sen and the other followed him I mnalned
where 1 was. They seemed to have for
geHen all about me
A nuuniui- roo from the desk. The offi
cer was delivering his report. Then the
Kaiser seemed to question htm. for I heard
his hard, metallic voice
Contalnialson Trout s Wood
l.eavj losses forced back ter
rific flic , were the words that reach
ed me The Kaiser sSolcc lose on a high
note of lrrltablllt Suddonlv he dashed

claimed "It Is outrageous' III brenk him'
another man "hull he havo if I must go

to me Ills old face was white and his
hamls vVrre shaking
"Oet out of heie ' he said to me In a
fierce undertone. Wait outside and I will
see ou later'" '
Still, from the ihsk. resounded that harsh.
strident voice, running on ln an ascending
scale, pouring forth a foaming toireut of
menace. .
I had often heard or the sudden paroxvsms
of fury.fiom which the Kaiser was said lo
mjlYer of recent venrs. but never In mv wildest
