After gazing at Trilling's six feet of
height, and taking in his broad shoul
ders and his massive "jaw, a casual
observer would say that nothing short
of a dynamite explosion could startle
him, and that really frightening him
was quite out of the question. How
ever, few persons knew about his in-1
fatuation for Eudora Carpenter.
Eudora was not quite up to his
shoulder when she stood on tiptoe,
and she had a mild and gentle eye,
yet Trifling was instantly a victim of
paralysis, tied tongue, enlarged hands
and feet and brain fag when he en-!
tered her presence. In spite of this
he was not happy unless she was in
sight. It was a joyful sort of misery,
or a miserable sort of joy, that had
possessed Trilling for some time.
Knocked dumb and senseless as he al
ways was when near Eudora, he sim
ply couldn't tell her of his emotions
and get the agony over.
He had brooded over the situation
helplessly until he was ready to seize
at any straw that promised rescue. In
his case the straw appeared one even
ing when he was agonizing at Eu
dora's house and painfully pretending
he was quite happy and even greatly
enjoying himself.
Eudora had turned on the phono-1
graph. It was a very good one, so her
action was justifiable.
"I just love it," Eudora told Trilling.
Often when I am alone I amuse my
self for hours with it!"
Do you?" inquired Trilling, fatu
ously. And just then he saw daylight.
He went home in a trance of ex
citement, for while he couldn't face
Eudora Carpenter and propose to her
he could think of a dozen ways to tell
her of his adoration when he was
away from her.
There was a very good phonograph
at his home. So what would be easi
er than to fill a blank record with his
impassioned declaration, send it to her
and thus break the news? It would be
far better than stammering oub a
mangled proposal face to face. She
would be much more likely to listen
favorably to an address of well-cho
sen, graceful yet fervent phrases.
Altogether Trilling was vastly
pleased with his unusual idea.
With some maneuvering he got the
members of his family away the next
evening. He inserted the blank rec
ord, and then gazing into the insen
sate maw of the phonograph horn, he
promptly experienced a cold chill. For
minute it was as disquieting as ga
zing into Eudora's eyes.' Then he
opened his lips, coughed, opened them
again and, whirling on his heel stalked
away with a muttered exclamation.
Mopping his brow he stared into the
mantel mirror. Trilling was forced to
confess that he felt like a fool. There
was nothing of the actor in Trilling,
and the task of making violent love to
tin horn suddenly loomed monu
mental and overwhelming.
He shook himself and tried it again.
"Eudora," he began faintly. Then,
bracing himself, he repeated her
name more loudly. "Eudora, I—er—
love you. EJudora, will you be my
He wailed instantly: "Hang it!
That won't do! It's too cold, too for
He paced the room muttering en
dearing phrases. He tried leading up
gradually to the declaration. He tried
the serio-comic, the thrillingly grave,
the pleading and likewise the tragic.
None of them sounded right. There
was an artificiality, a hollowness
about all of them that was repellent.
Something vital seemed lacking.
Every time Trilling made the turn
at the end of the room the phono
graph horn yawned at him primly,
demonlike. Once he picked up a news
paper, wadded it and hurled the mis
sile at the taunting machine.
Still, there was an odd pleasure in
putting his secret hopes and wishes
into actual words. It made them more
real somehow and he extracted a
strange and thrilling excitement frpm
the sound of his own voice. He
"found it possible to say "Eudora!" in
exactly ten different ways and to con
vey the Idea that he wanted to marry
Eudora a full dozen ways. Each time
he proposed to the empty air Tril
ling's chest inflated a trifle more and
presently he was actually swaggering
in his walk. Finally he stopped and
regarded the phonograph thought
Disgust at its insensateness rose
within him. Then, without pausing to
think, Thrilling jammed on his hat,
leaped into his coat and hurried over
the intervening blocks to the Carpen
ter house.
The girl of his dreams opened the
"Eudora," Trilling burst out, still I
under the spell of his evening's hard
work, "it's just dawned on me that
I'm a double-dyed idiot! I've been
working like a nailer for two hours
proposing to a phonograph that hasn't I
got any hand to hold and I can say it
in 12 different, perfectly good ways
and I want you to listen, quick, and
pick out the way you like best!"
"You'd better take off your coat ai»d I
Bit down and tell me all about it," said
Eudora, soothingly. Eudora always
had a head for emergencies.
So, having got started, Trilling told
her all about it.
"I don't see," Trilling remarked to
himself some time later in the even
ing from the comfortable heights of|
the man' who has dared and won, "I]
don't see what I WM so
'frightened about."
"Off in His
'I am still having no end of trouble
with my pronunciation^," said the rug
ged man who has accumulated a big
fortune without having much improved
his education. "That Is, I ain't hav
ing any trouble with it "myself, but I'm
making a lot of trouble for other peo
"As far as I'm concerned I don't
mind much how I pronounce my words
as long as I'm understood, but it
makes an awful difference to my chil
dren, especially my oldest daughter.
'Why, father,' she says, 'what do you
suppose people will think of us with
you pronouncing words a.i you do?'
You see, since the children wer»
old enough to kuow anything we've
always had plenty of money, and so
they've had all the what you call ad
vantages, and they know h6w to pro
nounce and all that, and they can hold
their end up with the best of them.
Now, you know, the children's mother
and I have been married for quite
some time, and I don't want to butt
my family affairs In onto your notice,
but I don't mind saying to you that I
think mother is the greatest and
noblest and finest woman that ever
lived, and you might not think it of &
tough old chap like me, but I like to
call her pretty names.
Her name, I might as well tell you,,
because I've got to tell you, to under
stand what I'm going to say, is Mary
but I like sometimes to call her some
thing else. Sometimes I call her Lucy,
I rather like Lucy, and instead of call
ing her Mary I've called her some
times Lucy for weeks at a time, with
her smiling at me kind o' dubious, as
if I was making a fool of myself, but
saying nothing. And Agnes I always
sort of liked Agnes, and once I called
her Agnes for six weeks. And then
another name I always did like was
Pauline, and once for about four
months I didn't call her anything but
Pauline, and I've called her by & lot
of names like that, just as they hap
pened to strike my fancy.
"Foolish this may seem to you, just,
as it always did to her, but I never'
saw any harm in it. I like to give her
these pretty names just as I like to
give her pretty clothes. I like to have
everything about her pretty I'd giv®
my hat and all I've got to make her
happy. I don't know what I'd done or
where I'd got without her, and she's
all the world to me, and I love to give
her all the pretty things I can but I'
guess I can't give her any more
pretty names.
Last week I ran across the name
of Beatrice. That's a pretty name,
don't y.9u think? Beatrice? And I
started right away calling the lady
Beatrice, but this time I ran up
against my oldest daughter.-
Of ^course I pronounced Beatrice
Bee-a-triss what other way couldj
there be? I never heard any other,.}
but the first time I said it my oldest!
daughter happened to be around and'
Bee-a-triss?' she said. 'Why, father
what do you mean by saying dreadful:
things like that?'
'Dreadful?' I says. 'Why, what's*?
the niatter with Beatrice? Isn't Bear-,,
trice a pretty name?'
'Why, father,' says my oldest.,
daughter, 'you mustn't say things llksf
that you mustn't say Bee-a-triss, it's
'What?' I says, 'Bay-ah-chee-t.ray?^
*No, no, no!' says daughter, 'not*
Bay-ah-chee-tray. It's Bay-ah-tree-fe
"And I tried it again and got it Bay
ah-chee-tree, and Bay-ah-tree-chee, and
Bay-ah-tro-key, and various other
things, and finally I got It Bay-ah-tree-F
chay. ij
'Now, that's right,' says daughter^,*
'it's Bay-ah-tree-chay. Never say jiee
I said it again and got it right,
again this time, Bay-ah-tree-chay and!
as I said it I happened to look around:
where mother was, and there she sat
smiling at me.
Well, it was sort of ridiculous,,
wasn't it? Certainly It was. Lucy
,was: alii right enough, and (Agmes aad
Pauline, but^fancy,my going up to her
and saying: 'Well, Bay-a'-tree-chay*'
and then going on and trying to say
something sensible or loving after
"Why, of course, it wouldn't do, and
we both knew that, and so, do you
know, I've cut out the fancy names
altogether? Dropped 'em entirely, and.
I think she's rather pleased with that..
She always laughed at me for it, but I
am inclined to think that deep down
in her heart she never really fanoied
my calling her by any name but her
