Little Dot. Tho church WMvastarjddlrn. Tho air waa fragrant wlth plne boughs, Btid over the golden orosa of the chancel hung boavy wroaths of box and fir. A solltary lipJht Bhone in front of tho organ. Little feet were heard on the etaira lead ing to the orehestra. A door in the orgau caso opened quletly, atid was about to close, when a voice was heard : " Ia thatyou, Dot ?" asked the organiat. "Yee.sir." " Wbat makea you come eo oarly ? It ia nearly an hour before tho rehearsal be gins. 1 shonld think the little bellows room would be a rather lonely placo to wait an hoar." " 1 alwsya come early," eaid the boy, timidly. 8o I have notioed. "Why ?" " Mother thinks it best." " Come out bere, and let me talk with you. I have suDg in the choir nearly a year, and nnvo naraiy naa a gumpae 01 yoa yet. Don't be bashf ul 1 Why, all tho musio wonld stop if it were hot for you, Dot Our grandest Christmas an them wonld break into confnsion if yoa were to cease to blow. Come here. I have jnst arrived in the city, and have oome to the 'chnroh to wait for the honr of rehearsaL I want company. Come, Dot." The little eido door of the organ moved ; a shadow crept along in the dim light toward tbe gonlai-neartea tenor. "Dd you llke muaic, Dot ?" "Yes. air." " Ia that what makes you come so long before the rest " " No, sir." "What is it. then?" "I have a reason mother would not like to have me speak of it." " Do you aing Y " " Yes, at home.'' What do you sing ? " " The parU I hear you sing." ' Tenor, then ? " "Yes." Will vou sing for me 7 " Now'?" "Yes." " I will sing HaTk, what mean ? ' " " Rossini an adaptation f rom Cujut Animam. The boy did not understand. " Well," sald the tenor, Hl beat time now, Dot." A flate-like voice floated out into the empty edifice, silvery, pure, risiog and falling through all the melodious measures of tuat aimoBt serapnio meiody. ine ten or leaped to his feet, and stood llke one entranced. The voice fell in wavy ca- dences: "lieavenly Halleluiahs nse." Then it rose, clear as a ekylark, with the sonl of msplration ln it : " Hear them tell that tacred story, llear them chant The tenor, with a nervous motion, tnrned on the gas-lient. The boy seemed affrighted, and shrank away toward the little door that led to the bellows-room. "Boyl" "Sir?" " There is a fortune in your voice." " Thank you, sir.'' "What makes you hide behind that bench f "You won't tell, sir?" " No : I will befriend any boy with a voice Iifee tnat." The boy approached tho singer and stood beside nim. He eaid not a word, but only looked toward hia leet. The tenor's eyes followed the boy's. Hb saw it all, but heonly said tenderly "Djtl" A cbancel door opened. An acolyte eame in, bearing a long gas lighter ; he toncbed the chandeliers, and they burst into flame. The cross glimmerecl upon the wall under the Christmas wreatbs; tho alabaster font revealed its beautiful decorations of calla lilies and smilaz ; the organ giowea witn its taii pipes, and carv ings, and cneruDs. The first, fksh of light in the chancel lound JJjc nidden in nis little roora, with tbe door tast closed benind nim. What a strange place it was I A dim light fell tbrougn the open carvings of tbe organ case. Great wooden pipes towered aioii, wun DiacK moutns Iiko dragons Far, far above in the arcb was a cherub without a body a golden faoe with pur- pie wings. uoi naa looKea atlt lor liours and wondered. He sat looking at it to-night with a sor rowful f aco. There were other footsteos in tbe cburch; eounds of ligbt, happy voices. Presently the bell tinkled. The organist was on his bench. Dot grasped the great wooden nanaie ; it moved up and down, np and down, and then tho tall wooden pipes with tbe dragon mouths began to thunder around him. Then the cborus burst iuto a glorions strain, which Dot the year before had heard the organist eay was tne " iuidnignt Alass ot tbe Mid dle Ages : " Adralea fldelee Laeti trluinhjuitee, Venlio, Veulte, InBeUUebeml" Tho great pipes close at hand cease to thunder. The musio seemed to run far away into distance, low. sweet. and sbadowy. There were sympathetio solos and tremulons chords. Then tho tempest seemed to come b'ack again, and the lumin-onaarch-over tbo organ sent back into the empty cburcb tbe jubilant cborus "Veslleadoremui, Venlui adoremui, Vfulle adoreinua, Dumtnum " After tho anthem there were boIos The tenor santr one of them. and Dot tried to listen to it as be moved tbe handle np and down. How sweet it nounded to Dot's ears I It came from friendly heart except his mother's it waa the oulv voice that had evor spoken a word of aympatby or praise to tho poor bellows-boy. The eingera rested, laughed, and talked. Dot listened as usual in hia narrow room, "I camo to chnroh dlreotly from tho train," eaid tho tenor. " and amused tuy self for a timo with Dot. A wonderful voicn that bov haa." " Dot ?" said tho preoentor. " Yes ; the bo that blows the organ." "Oh, yes; I had forgotten. I seldom see him," sald tho precontor. " Now I think of it, tho sezton told rao some weeks ago that I must get a new organ. boy auothor year ; he saya this one Dot, you call mm Y comos to tno cnuroii tbrough baclt alleys, ana goes 10 me uei-lows-room as eoon as tho church is open and hidea there untll aervlce time, nnd that hia clothes are not decent to bo seon in chutch on Sunday. Next Snnday be glns the year j I must Bee to tho matter." ' Ild doea hia work well 7" asked the alto, wlth a touch of sympathy in her volco. "Yes." " Would it not bo bettor to got him some now clothes than to dismisa him 7" sho asked. " No. Charity ia charity, and businesa ia businesa. Uverytbmg must bo urst clasa hero. We oannot have ragamulliaa creeping into the church to do church work. Ul conrse, i shonld bo giau w havo tho boy supplied with clothes. That ia anothor tblng. Bnt we must havo a dlfferont person in the bellows box. The eexton's son ia brigbt, dresses well, and, I have no doubt, would be glad of tho place. Now we will sing the antbom, uood will to men Tbecboirand cborus aroae. xbo or ganiat tinkled tbe bell and bent down on tho pedals and keya. Thero was a rip- ple ol music, a succession oi snori sounaa, and silence. Tho orcanist tounhed the knob at the aide of the koy-board, and again tho bell tinkled. lits wnite bands ran over tne keya, bnt there issued nosound. He moved nervously irom tbo bencn, and opened the little door. Dotl" No answer. " Tho boy is Bick or faint." The tenor stepped into the room and bronght out a llmp figure. " Aro you 8ick, uot s ' "Yes, sir ; what will becomeof mother?" " iie neard wnat you f atd about dis missing him," said the alto to the pre oentor. " Yes, but the sexton was right. Look at his ehoea why, hia toes are sticking through them." "And tnia bitter weatneri" said tbo alto, f eelingly. " Uan you blow, Dot r " No. sir : it is all dark, sir. I can't but just stand up, sir. You won't disinies me, Bir 7 Mother is lame and poor, sir PArahzed, sir; that's what they call it can't use but one hand, sir." " This ends the rehearsal," said tbe pre oentor, in an impatient way. " Dot, you needn't come to-morrow, nor till I send for you. Here's a dollar, Dot charity Christmas present." Uoe by one tbe smgera wont out, tbe precontor bidding the sexton have a care that Dot was sent home. The alto and the tenor lingered. Dot was recovering. " I shall not hear tbe musio to-morrow. I do love it bo." " You poor child, you shall have your Christmas muaic to-morrow, and the best the city auorda. Do you know where Musio Hall is.Dot?" "Yes, lady." " There is to be an oratorio there to- morrow evening ' The Mesalah.' It ia the grandest ever composed, and no sing' ing in America is equal to it. There is one cborus called the ' Halltlujah Chorna ' it ia wonderiui ; tne man wno composed it tbougbt be beard tbe angels bideidc and saw the Lord of heaven when he waa at work upon it; and he ia to be the first tenor singer and am to sing the altos ; wouldn't you like to co, Dot t ' " xes, lady. is tbe man wbo composed it to do tne tenor singer the one wbo heard the angels singing, and thought he saw tbe Liord " " No, Dot ; he is to be tho tenor singer." " l Dot," said tne tenor. " I have a ticket for the upper gallerv, which I will give him," said the alto. "Afriendof mino bougbtit, but I gave her a seat on the floor, and kept this for well, lor Dot." The tenor talked low with the lady, "Here is a Christmas present, Dot." Iie banded Dot a bill. " And here ia one for your mother.1 said the alto, gmng Dot a little roll of money. Dot waa better now. He looked be- wildered at his new fortune. "Thank you, lady. Thank you, Are you able 7" The alto laughed. "Yes, Dot. I am to receive a hundred dollars for singing to-morrow evening. I shall try to think of you, Dot, when I am rendering one of the paasages perbaps it will give me mspiration. 1 aball see you, Dot under the statue of Apollo." The sexton was turning off the lichts in the chancel. He called Dot. The church grew dimmer and dinimer, and tbe great organ faded away in tbe dark- ness. In the vanisbing llgbts the alto and tenor went out of the churoh, leav ing Dot with the sexton. it was babbath evening Ubristmas. Lights glimmered thickly among the snowy trees on the common ; beautiful coacbea were rolliog through tho crowded Btreeta. Dot entered Muaic hall timidly by a long passage, through which brigbt, happy faces were passing, silks rnstling, aged psoplo moving eedately and slowly, and into which the crowds on the streets seemed Burging like a tide. Facea were too eager with expectatlon to notice him or hia feet. At last ho passed a sharp angle in the long pasaago, and the great organ, under a tbousand gas jets, burst upon hia view. An usher at one of the many lower doora looked at his ticket doubtfully : " Second gallery back." Dot followed tne trailing silks up the broad flights of etaira, roachod the top, and asked another usher to ehow him to his seat The young man whom Dot ad dressed had that iunate refinement of feeling that marka a true Boaton gentle man. He gave Dot a smile as much aa to eay, " I am glad you can enjoy all this bappinesa with the rest," and aaid : " Follow me." His manner was so kind that Dot thought he would like to speak to him again. He remembered what tho alto had said about the statue of Apollo, and aa the usher gave him back hia oheck and the seat, Dot said : " Will you please tell me, air, which ia tue statue ot Apollo t " Tbe usher glanced at tbe busta and statues along tbe wall. He spoke kindly : " That is tbe Anollo Belvidere." Dot tbougbt that a pretty namo; it did not convey to hia miud any asaooiation of tho Vatioan palace, but he kuew that some beautiful mystery was connected with lt. And now Dot gazea in amazement on tho sceno beforo him. In the blnzo of light tho groat orcau rlses resplendently, alxty feet ln helght, its imposing facado hidding irom viow its six tuousana pipos. IVoplo are hurryiitg into the hall, flitting to and fro; yonng ladtes in black silks and velvola andRatlns; old men whore were so many men with white hair ever seen before 7 atately wlth thln facea, bald teachers. colloze professors. Tiera of aeata ln the form of half a pyrnmid riso at either end of tho organ. Thrsa are filling wlth tho chorus sonranos and al tos in blnck dreasos nnd white shawls, tenora nud basses in black coats, white necV-ties and kids. In front, between the great chorus, riaea n dark statue, and arouud this musiciana are gathering players on vlolina, violaa, vloloncellos, contra bassea, (lutes, oboea, baseoons, trumpeta, trombonea, horns; the pyra- midal soats lill; tho hnll ovetflows; tbe doora aro full, the galleriea. The inslru- monts tune. A dark-haired man ateps upon tho oondnctor's stand ; he ralses his baton ; there ia a husb, then half a hun dred instruments pour fourth the sym- phony. U.it listena. lle haa never beard sucn musio before ; ho did not know that any- thing like it waa ever heard on oarth. It growa sweeter and aweeter : " Comfort je." Did an angel speak 7 The instru ments aro sweeter now : " Comfort ye mj people." Did the voice come from tho alr 7 Dit listena and wonders if this is earth. Comfort ye, comfort yt mj people, lalUi yonr Ood, Hjtu ruur uuu. Dot seea a tall man atanding alone in front of tbe musiciana ia it he that is sincing 7 Dot cazss upon his faco with wild eyes. lt Is he and he is the tenor who had bef riended him the nieht before. What musio loilowed wben tho chorus rose and sang : ' Ererj raller ehall bo eialted t" Dot hears the grand musio sweep on. and he feels, as all feol, that the glorious Messiah ia about to appsar. He seea a lady in white aatin and flashlng jewi atep lorward ; be bears a npnle of ap- plauae, and a voice full of strength and leeling sings: ' 0 thon that telleat good tlillngl to Zlon, 0 thon that telleat uood tldlnirfl tn i Jernwltm, eay unto the cluceof Judah, llehold your Ood I" Dot knows tbat voice. Will indeed she lift her eyes to him 7 No, she does not. She sits down, the hall ringing with applanae. She risea, bowa, but doea not look toward tbe statue of Apollo, near which Dot is sittmg. Dot heara dreamy muaic now, more eu chanting than any before it. The great audience do not stir, or move a fan, or raiso a glaaa. It growa more ethereal; it aeenia now but a wavy motion in the air. Iie heara a lady near whisper " The paatoral svmphony." Tbe alto has risen again. She stands out from the great chorus what a beau tiful figure I The dark-haired mau lifts hia baton ; the lady turna her face toward the upper gallery. Her eyes wander for a motnent; they rest on Dot: " Iie ahall feed hia flock llke a ahenherd. and he ahall gither the iamhn wlih hU arm, and carry them la uls tweom, ana genuy leaa mose mai are wiw young." There was no applause now. Teara stood in the alto's eyes teara stood in the eyes of every one. There was a deep husb, and tears, and in the nilence the alto stood looking steadily at Dot, There was a rustle in the hall it erew, The silence was followed by a commotibn tbat seemed to rock the hall. The ap plause catbered lorce like a tempest, Then the beautiful lady looked toward Dot, and sang again the same wonderful air, and all the hall grew still, and peo ple's eyea were wet again. The Hallelimb. chorus with its grand fugues, was sung, the people risincr and standing with bowed heada during tbe maiestic outpouring ot praise. lt ia ended now faded and gone. The great organ stands ailent in the dark hall ; the coachea have rolled away, the clocks are strikimg midnight. "I have come to congratulate you before retiring," said our tenor to the alto, as he stepped into the parlor of the Ilevere House. "To-night haa been the triumph of your life. Nothing so moved the audi ence aa ' Ho ehall feed hia flock like a shepherd.' " Do you know to what I owed the feel ing that so lnspired me in that air 7" "No." " It was poor little Dot in the gallery, Xou teacb music, do you not t" "Yes." "You are about to open a school ?" "Yes." " Give Dot a place aa offi;e-boy er rand-boy sometning. lt will litt a weigbt from my heart." "X had thought of it. He haa a bean tiful voice." "I might get him a place in a choir." Fifteen yeara have passed. The old Handel and Hayden Society have sung "The Messiah" filty, perhapa sixty times. The anowa of December are again on the hilla. The grand oratorio ia again rebearsing lor tbe babbath evening betore Ubristmas. A new tenor ia to sing on the occaaion he was born in Boston, and haa studied inAlilan,andbas acbieved great triumphs nn - 1 . 1 t .1 I T don and Berlin. The old hall ia filled Bgain. The eympbony haa begun ita dulcet enchant ment; tbe tenor, with a face lumiooua and spiritual, ariaes, and with his first notes thrilla tbe audience aud holda it as by a spell : " Comfort ye." He thought of the time when ho first heard thoae worde. He thought of tbe hearta wboao kindnesa had made him a singer. Where were they 7 their voices had vanished from the choirs of eartb, but iu spirit thoae sweet singera seemed novenng arouna nim : " Comfort ye my people." no iooKei, too, toward tbe Apollo on the wall. He recalled tho limp bellows boy who had sat there aixteen yeara ago How those worda then comforted him I How ho lovcd to sing them now I "Speak ye comfortaMy to JeroaCem, and ory unto her hit her warfare la aocompUabed, tbat her InlijuUy U It waa Dot.
