—Chambers' Journal•
After having passed the summer in visit
ing the principal towns in Germany, the
celebrated pianist, Listz, arrived at lVague
in October 1846.
The day after he camo, his apartment was
entered by a stranger—an old man, whose
appearance indicated misery and suffering.
The great musician received him with a cor
diality which he would not, perhaps, have
shown to a nobleman. Encouragcd by his
kindness, his visitor said: "I come to you,
sir, as a brother. Excuse me if 1 take this
title, notwithstanding the distance that di
vides us but formerly I could boast some
skill in playing on the piano, and by giving
instructions 1 gained a comfortable liveli
hood. Now I am old, feeble, burdened with
a large family and destitute of pupils. 1
live at Nuremburg, but I came to Prague to
seek to recover the remnant of a small prop
erty which belonged to my ancestors. Al
though nominally successful, the expense of
a long litigation has more than swallowed
up the trifling sum 1 recovered. To-morrow
1 set off for home penniless."
"And you have come to me? You have
done well, and I thank you for the proof of
your esteem. To assist a brother professor
is to me more than a duty—it is a pleasure.
Artists should have their "purse in common
and if fortune neglects some in order to
treat others better than they deserve, it only
makes it more necessary to preserve the equi
librium by fraternal kindness. That's my
system so don't speak "of gratitude, for I
feel that 1 only discharge a debt."
As he uttered these generous words, Listz
opened a drawer in his writing case, and
started when he saw his usual depository
for his money contained but three ducats.
He summoned his servant.
"Where is tho money he asked.
"There, sir," replied the man pointing to
the open drawer.
'There! Why there's scarcely anything!'
'I know it. If you please to remember,!
I told you yesterday that the cash was near
ly exhausted.'
"You see, mv dear brother," said Listz
smiling, "that for the moment I am no rich
er than you but that does not trouble me,
I have credit and 1 can make money start
from the keys of my piano. However, as
you are in haste to leave Prague and return
home, you shall not be delayed by inv pres
ent want of funds."
So saying, lie opened another drawer and
taking out u splendid medallion gave it to
the old man. "There," said be, "that will i
do. It was a present made me by the Em
peror of Austria—his own portrait set in
diamonds. The painting is nothing remark
able, but the stones are fine. Take them
and dispose of them, and whatever they
bring shall be yours."
The old musician tried in vain to decline I
so rich a gift. Listz would not hear of a
refusal, and the poor man at length with
drew, invoking the choicest blessings of i
Heaven on bis generous benefactor. lie
then repaired to the shop of the principal
jeweler in the city, in order to sell the dia
monds. Seeing a miserably dressed man
anxious to dispose of magnificent jewels,:
whose value he appeared unacquainted with,
the master of the shop very naturally sus
pected his honesty and while appearing to
examine the diamonds with close attention,
he whispered a few words ill the ear of one
of his assistants. The latter went out and
speedily returned accompanied by several
soldiers of police, who arrested the unhappy
artist, in spite of his protcstatious of inno
cence. i
'You must first come to prison,' they said,
'afterwards you can give an explanation to
the magistrate.'
Tho prisoner wrote a few lines to his ben
efactor, imploring his assistance. Listz
hastened to the jeweler.
'Sir,' said he, 'you have caused the arrest
of an innoceut man. Come with me imme
diately, and let us have him released. He
is theluwful owner of the jewels in question,
for 1 gave the i» to him.'
'But, sir,' asked the merchant, 'who are,
'My namo is Listz.'
'1 don't know of any of that
•That may be, yet I am tolerably well
'Are you aware, sir, that these diamonds
are worth six thousand florins?'
*So much tho better for him on whom I
have bestowed them.'
'But in order to make such a present, you
must be very wealthy.'
'My actual fortune consists of three du
'Then you arc a magician?'
'By no means find yet by moving my fin
gers, 1 can obtain as much money ns 1
'You must be a magician.'
'If you choose, I'll disclose to you the
magic 1 employ.'
Listz had seen a piano in the parlor be
hind the shop. He opened it and ran his
lingers over tue keys then seized by sudden
inspiration, he improvisoed one of those
soul-stirring symphonies peculiar to himself.
As he sounded the lirst chords a beautiful
girl entered the room. While the melody
continued she remained speechless and im
movable then as the last note died away,
she cried with irrcsistablc enthusiasm, 'Bra
vo Listz! 'ti* wondrous!'
'Dost thou know him then, my daughter
asked tho jeweler.
'This is the first time I have had tho pleas
ure of seeing or hearing him,' replied she
'but I know that no one living save Listz
could draw such souuds from the piano.'
Expressed with grace and modesty, by a
young pcrsou of remarkable beauty, this
admiration could not fail to be more than
tlatteriug to the artist. However, after
making his best acknowledgements, Listz
withdrew, in order to deliver the prisoner,
und was accompanied by the jeweler.
Grieved at his mistake, the worthy mer
chant sought to repair it by imiting the two
musicians to supper. The honors of the ta
ble were done by his amiable daughter, who
appeared no less touched at the generosity
of Listz thau astonished at his talent.
That night the musicians of the city ser*
enaded their illustrious brother. The next
day the nobles and most distinguished inhab
itants of Prague presented themselves at his
door. They entreated him to give some
concerts, leaving it to himself to fix any sum
he pleased as a remuneration. Then the
jeweler perceived that talent, even in a pe
cuniary light, might be more valuable than
the most precious diamonds. Listz contin
ued to go to his house, and, to the merchant's
great joy, he perceived that his daughter
was the cause of these visits. 11c began to
love the company of the musician, and the
fair girl, his only child, certainly did Dot
hate it.
One morning, the jeweler coming to tho
point with German frankness, said to Listz:
'How do you like my daughter?'
'She is nn angel.'
'What do you think of marriage?'
•I thing so" well of it that 1 have tfaegfoat
cst possible inclination to try it*®
'What would you say to a fortBDS of threo
million francs?'
•I would willingly accept it.'
