II IIo trilled like a bird, or what 1' 1 moro to tho purposo, ho sang llko u ll prlma-donna, and all who hoard him tl marvoled at his wonderful volco. IIo possessed much girlish beauty, and tl ho had tho gontlcst of dispositions El which no amount of adulation could n spoil, H Tho many flattering professional of- II fors mado him wero peremptorily ro- II Jectcd by his family. They coddled V. tho boy as carelully as they nursed ji his volco h Ills uncle, Mr. Robert Trlggs, tho UJ wealthy proprietor or several largo I nuctlon stores In tho city, had mado I WIllIu his special care Mr. Trlggs I1 Ir.tondcd (when the time came) that l his nophow should study under tho host masters abroad, but. In tho mean- I time, ho Bhould learn all ho could from I local talent I No oxpense was to be spared to mako Wllllo the greatest of modorn i tenors; that he would bo anything j olso novor, for u moment, wns enter- i tallied by Mr. Trlggs, who had said, moro than onco, that Heaven's great- 1 est girt to man wns a lyric tenor i voice, that a bass volco was n noccs- j sary evil, and that a dcop toned worn- j an was a visitation of Providence. Wllllo had Ictornod rrem tho vll lago music teacher all tho latter had to teach, and began preparations for his trip abroad. Tho event was colo bratcd by a musical cntortalnmont tendered Wllllo by the members ot tho First Congregational church. Tho concort camo off on tho ovo of tho boy's doparturo, and Mr. Trlggs had brought a score of musical frlonds from tho city to attest tho wonder, ful quality of his nophow's volco. Tho church wns crowded, and ' ovorythlng passed off moro than sat isfactorily until the third number ot tho second part of tho programme. Then something happened: Wllllo'o volco had gotten away from him. Whllo ho was In the mlddlo ot an olabornto Wngnerlun nlr his volco sud denly leaped threo bars ovor tho clofl It lingered there for an In stant, and then as suddenly dlvod bo low It. Attor Beo-sawlng In this man ner for nearly a minute, Wllllo sat down, followed by silence. Soma thought that tbo hollows had burst, others that tho organ plpoa y woro out of Joint, but Mr. Trlggs, who was an authority, raised his hand. 9 "Tho boy's volco has changed," ho said; "and that's all thoro is about It." t Tbo gloom that Bottled ovor Sunny vlllo that night was not lifted for many months; and oven to this day tho wondorful gymnastics that Wllllo's volco went through that night aro not reforrcd to without a shudder. Wllllo was cntlroly oblivious, , strango to say, to that which to ovoryono olso was painfully ovldont, for ho continued In tho choir, notwith standing tho mnny hints that his res ignation would ho accepted, and that ho Bhould bo reinstated whonovor his volco had established Itself upon a less uncortaln basis. Dut ho did not tako tho hint, until ono night at re hearsal 'Squlro Tllshop, tho bass, took him asldo. "Your volco Is tho most wondorful thing In the world. Wllllo," ho said. "Ono can novor toll what It's going to do next Ono mlnuto It's ballooning abovo high C, and tho noxt It's 'grub bing undor low Q. Why don't you adapt It to a sliding scale?" "That's right, Willie," said Mr. Trainer, tho tonor, who had ovorhoard Mr. nishop. "Ilut If you can only mnnago to blond thoso two voices of yours I'll ndvortlso you as the groat and only duotcst on earth. Ill tako )ou on (ho road nnd mako your for" noforo tho tonor could finish ho lay sprawling under a bench, whllo Wil lie, with hands clonchod and oyoa ablaze, stood glaring at tho bass. "Look horo, 'Squlro nishop," he squoaked, "I'vo stood this thing Just about as long ns I Intend to stand It. And It you or any othor man says a word to mo nbout my volco (horo his tones soared skyward) I I will so holp mo Hob, I will (now bis volco camo from tho depths) I'll punch his " bead!"
