W/ASQ From the ancient land of Confucius to I the hurly burly of modem American life is a far cry. Yet that is Just what hap pened to Mme. Kai Fu Shah, wife of the new minister from China. With her hus band. five of her eight children and thir teen servants, Mme. Shah arrived in Washington only a few days ago, and now she and her household are comfort ably installed at the Chinese legation. Mme. Shah is a slight woman, with dark hair, eyes of the same hue and an expression of motherly kindness. She was born in China and was in Peking during the recent revolution, which resulted in the republic. From her home she could hear the boom of the distant guns as the battles raged around the city. Mr. Shah is the first Chinese minister to come to America since China joined the sister hood of republican governments. Also he was the first Chinese minister to arrive in New York wearing the plain business suit of the average American man instead of the native costume of the Chinese. There are eight children in the family of Minister and Mme. Shah. The eldest *irl Is Just budding into womanhood and her name is Lang Shah. She has spent many years In America, for her father was consul general at New York for sev eral years, and she speaks English flu THE EVENING STORY. The Ten-Cent Store. (Copyright, 1814, by W. Wernet.) It was called merely the ten-cent store. Once you entered you found yourself surrounded by a bewilder ment of things which might be yours for the asking and a dime. Flowers bloomed here perennially, forget-me-l nots, daisies and huge roses blushing their way through a gamut of color. Across the street Pilchard, the florist, I also sold roses?at $35 the dozen. It appealled to one to consider how many dozens $35 would buy at the ten-dentl store. At the back of the store, beyond the roses and the thousand other things beloved of the poor, was a region of perpetual incandescence where Judith French lived six days out of the seven from 8 o'clock in the morning until 6 o'clock at night. Between her and the rest of the store was a counter piled with sheet music. Great stacks of sheet music filled the shelves under the counter. Back against the wall stood an upright piano upon which Judith was obliged to play any piece of music that she was asked to play. J Judith was a small girl with down i right gray eyes and a lot of brown hair which, no matter how tight she I called it, had a way of creeping out into charming looseness about her lace. There was a good deal of strength in her slim wrists and hands, and tnough both oitcn ached woeiuliy by 6 o'clock she gave no sign. Sne bad no color to lose, and so did not look as; tired as she frequently lelt. liven on a certain awful aay when she naa, to piay the latest popular rag thirty seven times sno played the last notes as gayly as the first. The next day the management raised her pay. Sne had broken the record for one-day sales with "Polly Peaches." However, music of the "Polly leaches" style was not tho kind of music that Judith had been taught to play. Sometimes at night when sne walked to her boarding house her head throbbed with the fooiisn stuff she all day had been playing and she wondered if her grieved and shamed father actually looked out of heaven and saw her. ller father had been a musician with a touch of genius. Visions he had, and dreams. Iiut his youth went, his symphonies would not sell, his pupils left him because he scolded when he should tactfully have approved, and so at last he found himself playing in an orchestra for his daily bread. One hope was left to him?Judith. lie determined to make of her what ho had faiied to mako of himself. There was one point he overlooked?Judith was growing up with a kind of musical indigestion. All her days had begun and ended with music so long as she could re member. She thought sometimes she had Inherited distaste for it from her mother, who had married her musi cian and then as soon as ever she could died to be rid of him. Yet be cause she had pity for her father's heart she kept on studying and pre tended to be what he wished. In her heart she knew that she was a miser able fraud and failure. He died before he knew. But for Judith his going was a great. revela tion. He had left her nothing save a bust of Wagner, the old conoert-grand piano and a vast deal of music in all stages of dilapidation. The rent on the studio was overdue, and after tho necessary expenses were met there was nothing to pay it with. An at tachment wai put on the piano and the bust of Wagner. Judith never saw either of them again. With her father's music she moved ir.'.o a hall bedroom and began to look for work. She was twenty years old. She had no stanch friends. Misfortune spells desertion. She tried going out to give lessons, but the people who engaged her would not pay, it chanced that ently. She attended college in China and will probably do so here in America. The oldest boy accompanying the moth er is a sturdy lad of eleven and is named Lincoln- There is a girl of nine called Daily, a little fellow named Bacon, aged four, and a wee baby, San Leo. Mme. Shah is essentially the mother; one can see the maternal anxiety with which she ceaselessly watches over her flock of little ones. But she is also a progressive, for her girls are being edu cated according to the new standards of life in modern, republican China. "China has made wonderful progress in the last years in the education of women," she said. "We have schools and colleges now for young women. And we even have a few suffragists, too. My country is adding every day to educa tional facilities. But I find most of my time taken up with the cares of my large family. "While the men of the family have adopted American dress, I find my na tive costume more comfortable than Eu ropean gowns. Some of my children were born in New York and the boss will go to public school here." Mme. Shah and Miss Lang have re tained the picturesque robes of their country, a bit modified as to the skirts, which take on a somewhat American bias. But their waists are of Chinese silk, made in the loose fashion of their own land. . - - . . the sister of one of her pupils played m the ten-cent store. She was going to be married. Judith could have her place if she liked. Judith did like very much. The position was a godsend to her. For one week she played pop ular music?and sold it, too?on tea and rolls. Then she got her pay and went to a regular boarding house. She was very brave and good, this small Judith, with a very clear vision of life. It had placed her at a piano in a ten-cent store; it had sent her out to earn her bread with very in different equipment; it had stripped her of love and protection, but it had left herself pure, unspoiled and beautifully confident. Still, she had her dreams and they were not?as her father's had been for her?^of see ing herself in wonderful white gowns, with lier hands full of roses, bowing her acknowledgments to an audience vociferous with applause. Her dreams were of a far simpler texture. All her life Judith had wanted the coun try. Once she had had two beautiful weeks of it: a musical friend of her -father's had taken them to his sum mer cottage. She had never forgotten that one most blissful experience or the boy who had come down from the big, gray farmhouse on the hill to play with her and her host's children. Once they had all gone to the farm house to supper, and such a supper as that was! Ever since she had looked upon a farm as a new land of Canaan, where milk and honey flowed in abundance. Some day Judith meant to realize one of her dreams by spending a week on some farm near the city. Ever since that day of thirty-seven renderings of "Polly Peaches" and a raise in her salary she had been put ting a dollar each week in an old purse against vacation time. It gave her something beyond bare need to work for, something to look forward to. To be free from the city and the ten-cent store and the piano; to sit with hef hands folded or holding a bit of em broidery; to be far aWay from faces and voices and?popular music. Ah, such a prospect was worth living for, worth waiting for! It was already March. The first sigl nificant tokens of spring were abroad. A few straw hatB were seen. The latest songs began to sigh of moonlight nights,' apple blossoms and gentle breezes. Early shoppers were flocking to town. Knota of them paused at Judith* s counter to look over the new music. Invariably they asked her to play something, and when she had played bought it. One afternoon Judith turned from the piano, where she had been playing a two step for a stout woman who wanted something that "didn't have sharps nor flats and would be easy to finger," and looked into the eyes of a young man, who, with rather a bewildered air, was turning over a gayly lithographed copy. "I want to get some music to take home to my little sister," he said, "but I don't see anything that looks right, some how." He seemed to abjure the whole mass of frivolous melody with those last words. Judith hesitated an instant, then she picked up a copy of the "Spring Song," which had been out of . sight. "I think this is what you are looking for. Listen," she said, and sat down at the piano. Her fingers rippled off the beautiful melody. When she played it she seemed to hear birds singing to the lyre of the breeze, to see the sunshine of open skies dancing on clear Waters. And it was evi dent she made the young man hear and see the same thing, for when she came back to the counter he was watching her wonderingly. "I'll take that,", he said, "and any pieces that are like it!" "There's nothing exactly like it?In the whole world." Judith murmured. "No," lie said. "I see there couldn't be," Judith counted out quite a pile of music and he paid for it and took it away. Fcr two or three days she thought about his nice, kind, happy face and his eye*, which were so different from most men's eyes. Then some stormy weather came on and all the evidences of spring rushed to cover and she went on selling music and playing it as if God meant her to do just that and nothing else in the whole world. One morning she found him at her counter again, and with him a young girl with scarlet ribbons on her thick black hair. She had some music In her liHifds and she unfolded it and displayed the title. It was the 'Spring Song." ?Buddy says I don't play it as you do, I so I've brought it feaclt to see 12 you, I won't please let me hear the way you do play It." Judith laughed. "Of coin**. I'll play it for you," she Bald. "There's a copy j on the piano now." She sat down and again she made vis ions of 'all the loveliest things under the i sun. I Ttte lfttie girl, clapped her hands as she 1 finished. "Oh, that's perfectly fine! I don't wonder that Buddy wasn't suited with the way I played it. You must Xnow an awful lot about music." "My father was a musician and he taught me." "You ought not to be playing in the ten-cent store!" Judith colored. Then she sighed and smiled. "I don't know where ' else I eould play. I tried teaching, of course, but?there are so many teachers here!" "Not out our way." The girl had both elbows on the counter,, her square chin between her two charming gloved hands. "Why, you can't get a music lesson there for love or money. Isn't it true. Buddy? And I'm wild to take lessons. I'd give anything to be able to play the 'Spring Song* as you play It. Why. honestly, I can get you a class of fifty if you'll come out to Westmore. And Buddy and I'll be two of the class." "Westmore," said Judith. "Oh, I know Westmore, I had two happy weeks at the Birches near there one summer long ago?at least it seems long ago. I was ten and " She paused. Buddy had drawn nearer and was looking at her earnestly. "Then you are Judith French," he said. "Don't you remember me? I used to play with you. I lived in the farmhouse on the hill and my name is Anthony Gay." "Anthony Gay!" Judith said. She held out her hands, one to Buddy and one to little sister, who was telling her excit edly that her name was Elizabeth, and that she was thirteen?"so, of course, you wouldn't remember me." Other customers came, but they had to wait until Judith promised to come out to Westmore and open a studio, pro vided a class could be got for her. Four weeks later Judith walked out of the ten-cent store for the last time. She w'as going to new work and ultimate hap piness. She knew positively about the work, but she had only a faint expecta tion of the happiness. The morning was sunny and Judith's heart was light. The posies in the win dow of the ten-cent store crowded their faces to the pane "to see tier grj; looked back at them smiling.
