THE VIBR
(Copyright. 1007, by Thoma? H. McKee.)
In Its niche in the tiny hallway, the telephone
bell beran to rinar violently. It hrnka
the dark silence of the place, and brought
Miller, who was smoking In the dusk, out
of his reverie with an angry start. He rose,
half felt his way across the room toward
the hall, and the light leaped out suddenly
as he reached the electric button at the
door.
The hall, like every apartment In Miller's
snug quarters, was furnished with every
convenience, not excepting the Inevitable
telephone, whose bell was at the moment
punishing Itself with a deafening clatter.
Miller took down the receiver and gazed
meditatively at the wall paper.
"Hello." he said.
"Is this Madison?"
"Yes."
"Is this Mr. William LIndlay Miller?"
"It Is." said Miller, and his eyes lost their
meditative stare. The voice was a woman's,
and It was unusually sweet, with a
soft magnetic quality that provoked an Instant
Interest. At her next words Miller
stiffened with surprise.
"It's really Billy! Billy -Illler! Isn't it

Miller frowned.
"Who Is this?" he demanded, sharply.
The voice rippled a little. "Of course
you'd ask that, but I can't tell you because
I'm no one you ever saw or even heard of.
If we do unconventional things, we must
be careful. Call me 'Nobody?Nobody of
Nowhere.' "
There was a silence. Miller said nothing,
because he was trying to think of something
noncommittal and could not.
Then, "What are you doing?" said the
voice, guardedly.

dale Insane Asylum."
"Nonsense!" There was another ripple of
laughter. "Is any one there with you?"
"Only a dog. but he's very intelligent.
Would you care to speak to him?"
"No; I'm coming around. I shall be there
In a few moments. Good-bye."
There was an unmistakable click. Miller
grasped the telephone excitedly.
"What!" he shouted. "Here, central,
don't cut me? off. I want that party again.
Be quick. You can't! Blame It. you?oh!"
lliller slammed the receiver into the rack.
He sat down on a chair, and a brindled
terrier came and sat In front of him, and
thumped a stubby tall on the rug.
"Here's a mess," said Miller, with a wry
smile. "Fritz, a lady Is coming to see us?
an anonymous and uninvited lady. But she
had a pretty voice."
He went back Into the smoking room,
whe^e he straightened the magazines on
the table and stacked the couch cushions
In stiff man-fashion.
At 11 o'clock he threw all the cushions
at the innocent Fritz, and cast himself
upon the couch In disgust. The evening had
been uneventful, and he could only conclude
that some one had been trying to
make a stupid and pointless joke. It was
some comfort to remember that they had
obtained very little satisfaction over the
wire.
On the third day after, which was a
Sunday, Lokari, Miller's Japanese, woke
him from his morning doze with a summons
to the telephone. Miller went In his
bathrobe, yawning.
"Hello." he said, crossly.
"Good morning, Billy." _
Billy jumped.
"Of course, you won't recosnize me."
"I believe I've heard your voice once before."
"Oh, that Is nice of you, to remember.
Ones mind Is often cloudy on Sunday
morning, too. What do you think?"
"I believe you're a woman, so I'd best not
tell you what I think," snld Billy. "I suppose
all this Is some kind of a Joke on me."
Then the voice suddenly became so
troubled, so earnest and so eloquent that
Billy leaned, with a quickened i ulse, nearer
the instrument.
"Oh. please don't think that," It pleaded.
"If there Is any Joke about this, it la all
on me and it's a very miserable Joke at
best. I can't tell you what it is, and please
don't try to guess. Did you wait for me
tbe other night?"
"I was home all the evening." said stilly,
cautiously.
"And who came?"
"Nobody."
"Nobody?"
"Nobody at all."
There was a pause. "I said I was nobody,"
reminded the voice, gently.
Billy hung up with a slam and went back
to bed. He tried to sleep, but could not.
"I said I was nobody," repeated the voice,
insistently. "Stuff!" growled Billy, anil
turned on his other side.
This was the beginning of Billy Miller's
courtship?a siege laid to his heart by an
intangible, bodiless voice that said the
most amazing things, and then clicked off
into silence. It rani? up every two or three
days, sometimes In the morning, sometimes
in the evening:, and very often in Billy's
absence, as I.okari could have testified.
At first Billy was annoyed, later he became
resigned and then interested, so that
at last he found himself listening sagerly
for the telephone bell, and he cursed certain
male friends who called him up and
aroused vain expectations. He had relinquished
the joke theory. It did not seem
nrobable that anv one would npr?i?t in
joke for six weeks, when there was no satisfaction
to be gained. The owner of the
voice told him that she had wanted to
know him and could find no other way.
Billy.began to believe her. but he was not
a vain man. and wondered. He knew that
these thir.gs happened to matinee .idols and
popular concert pianists, but he had never
oeen anything more noted than the captain
of a college foot ball team four years be
lor*. There was no reason why a woman
should seek him out with such a blatantly
tlattering statement. H* felt the force o? |

the flattery, though he succumbed loss to
that than to tho personality in that soft
feminine voice.
At the end of three months Rllly was In
lova. It was maddening to make love to
an Inanimate Instrument of wood and
metal, and he rebelled fiercely. During
some thirty odd telephone interviews he hail
discovered nothing concerning the unknown
but that she had cared enough for him to
make him care ten times as much for her.
At this stage in the afTalr he began to realize.
In a measure, his utter helplessness.
The girl held every trump and the key to
the whole situation, which was hw own
Identity. She guarded that with ttie utmost
care, and Billy did not succeed in gaining
the smallest clue. Sometimes he wrestled
wordily with "central." and found that her
call had come from one of the hotels on the
avenue or a oav station on the upper West
Side, but this knowledge did not help him
at all. He felt that his position was ludicrous.
She knew how he looked, knew
where he lived, knew everything about him.
He knew her voice?and that was all. He
grew nervous and restless. He often
flushed and started when a woman touched
him In a crowd or when he met the eyes of
some girl passing along the street.
'"I saw you today,'* she told him once as

he stood glaring helplessly into the receiver.
"You came out of your club and
drove south in a cab. It was about 4
o'clock."
"Just about that." said Billy, with *
miserable laugh. "Where were you?"
"Crossing the avenue naif a block above."
"Will you be there tomorrow at the same
hour?"
Sue gave the negative he expected: "You
know I can't."
"I know you won't." he said, bitterly.
Their interviews had of late lost the more
impersonal tone that had existed in the beginning.
There had been a time when the
theaters, current events and even the
weather had furnished a topic for conversation.
Billy put such subjects aside now
with angry impatience. He argued hotly
for his rights, and at times there was something
that sounded like tears In the voice
at the other end of the wire. Then the affair
came to a crisis suddenly one day In
early winter, almost a year after that first

his unknown guest.
She had laughingly reproached him for
not recognizing her in passing.
"It was on Broadway," she said. "The
girl was very pretty."
"What girl?"
"The girl with whom you were, walking."
"My cousin," said i^illy, bluntly.
"She was too pretty for a cousin. I
hated her." The voice lost its softness and
rang a little hard.
"I hate her, too?at times. I hate everybody
these days because they're everywhere
and you're nowhere."
"Of course; because I'm nobody?Nobody
of Nowhere."
"Will you ever be Somebody of Some
say: 'This is I.' "
"You will," said Billy suddenly. "You'll
meet me tomorrow at Dawson's Art Galleries."
"Not tomorrow or ever."
"I have something to tell you."
"You must tell me everything over the
wire. I can't meet you."
"Very well. Are you listening?"
? "Yes."
"Then it's Just this: "You'll have to consider
me some in this affair. Perhaps you
never anticipated the present situation. You
saw me: and you cared enough for what
you saw to make advances which, as you
say, no girl should make. WeU. I've onlyheard
you; but I care enough now to be
ready, as soon as you will let me, to make
the most serious advances a man can make.
I vnu undprBtsuid?''
"I?I don't know.''
"Then-Til put it plainer. I've seen hundreds
of Kirla, but I never wished to marry
them. It's only since I've talked to you
that I've eared to think what marriage
might mean. I don't know who you are,
where you are or what you are, but I'm
staking everything on what I believe you
to be. Now will you meet me tomorrow?"
"1 can't." said the voice, faintly.
"Tomorrow." repeated Billy.
"I can't?I can't."
"You must," he cried, striking the 'phone
passionately.
"Pear Billy, no, no, no, no." There was
something that sounded like a sob and then
silence. Billy dashed the receiver at the instrument
in helpless rage.
"Curse the foul fiend that ever Invented
this thing," lie choked. "I'll break it to
pieces. I'll have it taken out. I?1?here, get
out of there," and he turned suddenly and
kicked the howling Fritz into the red room.
Billy's nerves were, for the moment, beyond
his control. He pu.-ed himself together
with an effort, put on his coat and
hat, and went out Into the fttreet. But at I
where?"
"No, never."
"Do you mean that?" he asked earnestly.
"Every letter of it, so please don't
argue."
"I can't." he said, hopelessly. "You're too
unreasonable and illogical."
"I'm not trying to be logical. I'm following
my own instincts. I'll try to explain
those, but you won't understand, because

you a number of times, in different places.
I wanted to know you, but I couldn't think

telephone tempted me. I was afraid at

just what chance there was of my

'phone number and forfeited that chance.

stiaw. There he saw a girl in a big black
hat. whose glance was softly Impersonal.
Billy looked at her and wondered There
was another woman who returned boldly
Mils bright, questioning gar.i a tall, lean
! person with prominent eyes, and Hilly
; shuddered as he turned away.
"She can't be like that.'' he protested, inwardly
"It Isn't possible," and he thrilled
suddenly at the memory of the voice with
the sob in it. " Dear Billy, no, no. no. no,'
I'd stake my life on that voice," he thought,
and looked again at the girl in the black
hat.
Suddenly he threw back his head and
walked across to where she stood, before
a large painting. Ho leaned forward and

"So you came, after all." he said.

There was nothing li her clear brown eyes
but startled displeasure.
"You're mistaken. I think." she said, an.l
turned her shoulder upon him.
Hilly muttered an apology as ho walked
away. He left the gallery with hot
cheeks.
"It wasn't her voice." he told himself,
"and I'll never try 'hat again."
L,ate that night he left his club, wtier*
he had dined and spent the evening at
cards. The mission clock in ins jiall
struck 12 as he closed h's own door ant
hung his coat and hit upon the rack. His
eye fell upon the telephone book lying >1
a table under the Instrument, anil the sight
of it brought back all his trouble with a
rush. He took it up, rutil ns thin closely
lettered pages with an unhappy frown.
"I'd call up every number in the book.
If it would do any good," he said.

close to his oar. He reached quickly for
the receiver. He thought it too late to be
she, but her voice came over the wire,
clear and eager, and his face aoften?il
visibly.
"Billy!"
"Hello! I didn't suppose It could be you
so late."
"I know It must be midnight, but I?I
wanted to speak to you."
"I wish you'd want to do something mora
than speak. I wont to Dawson's tills

"No."
"I believe you're the eruolest girl In the
wortd."
Oh, no: I never meant to be cruel. I've
been thinking things over ever since our
talk last evening."
"Are you going to meet me?"
"No; I rang up to say good-bye."

"Good-bye, with a capital (3, Billy?fur
always."
"Without my ever knowing anything
more about you?"
"I can't help it. I'm sorry, sorry, that I
ever called you up. I never thought that
you'd take me seriously like this. But
after what you said last night, we can't
go on."
"But you can't end It now after a whole
year of?of "
"Of what? Of nothing at all. Tou don't
care for a mere voice. You'll soon forget
all of It."
"I won't," he cried savagely. "It Isn't
your voice I love. I know your whole
personality. I can tell when you're sad or
happy, or sick or well. You care, too. You
said so. But If you ring off for always
now I'll believe forever that you did this
for a vile jok? or a vulgar bet."
"You can't think that," she said gently,
"when you remember some of the tlilnn-s r
have said."
"Then I'll forget them."
"Very well; I suppose that Is best. a
man and say 'good-bye', Billy."
"No."
"Good-bye."
"I'll find you If I have to dig up every
paving stone in this blasted town."
"Good-bye."
"I tell you I won't say 'good-bye.' "
There was no answer. He leaned tensely
against the telephone, listening.
"Dear," he cried, suddenly.
Only the whirring of the wires sounded

receiver, with a white face. In the small
dark smoking room he began to pace the
rug with nervous steps. He could not believe
that she had rung off for the last time,
yet he felt a chill fear that she had really
done so. He flung himself upon the couch
by the window, and looked down upon the
countless rooftops below, and the thousands
of lights twinkling far up and down the
river.
Billy Miller was courted no more over the
telephone. The clear girlish voice that had
been a friend to him for so long departed
as mysteriously as it had come. Three
weeks passed, and to Billy each week was
an eternity in which his soul hungered for
the vibrations of a small bell. Socially,
he was much in demand. He went to tliu
theaters, to dinners, to receptions, and
everywhere his bright dark eyes searched a
sea of Btrange faces, and he returned horns
dissatisfied and perplexed.
On an afternoon in January he stood tn
the lobby of one of the big hotels, where he
had come to meet a friend. He leaned
against a pillar, looking Idly up the wide
marble staircase. It was late In the afternoon,
and the place was thronged with
richly dressed men and women continually
passing from parlors to tea room, and
from the tea room to the entrance doors.
A slender figure came down the staircase
and paused at the bottom?the figure of a
graceful, well-gowned girl, whose eyes,
shining luminous through her heavv whlt?
veil, rt-sted upon Billy. Ho saw her hesitate
a moment, then, with fluttering; gesture
toward her veil, she crossed the lobby,
passing so close that she touched his hand.
Billy's Angers closed over something. He
Opened them- and discovered a square of
white pasteboard, engraved In letters that
flashed a woman's name upon his consciousness.
It was not a name that he had
ever known, but he fel^ that every drop of
blood in his body rushed to his head at
sight of the single word written across In
pencil?Nobody.
He made a rush for the revolving doors
through which she had gone. The attendant
reeled aside as he flung himself agaJnst
the brass bar and It vlelded. nrfH-lnltntina
him down the steps.
An electric hansom stood against the
curb. A girl, who had Just entered It.
leaned forward with a slight Inclination of
her head. He stepped in beside her, the
doors closed, and the cab started forward
in the crush of moving vehicles.
For a moment Billy sat motionless, while
the lights along the avenue blurred red before
his eyes. His heart beat fast, and he
heard the girl beside him catch her breatli
with a nervous sob. He twisted abruptly,
caught both her hands ill one of his and,
lpanlner fnrw/ird. rain?ul h^r vaII. Tho
trie light fell full on her wide, pleading
eyes and trembling lips. With a low, satisfied
laugh he leaned nearer.
"Thank God. you can't ring off," he said.
