CHAPTER VI. Mr. Ronald Marsh gave his poems to tlx world, and they made almost as much noise as he had hoped. But when one goes forth to make a noise in the world, the charaetei of the clamor which arisos Is as important as the volume of it, and the public recep tion of Mr. Marsh's muse, thoi gh loud enough to satisfy anybody, arousVd the bit terest scorn in the poet's heart, fcuj'i a charivari of chuff, such a Jovian roll and peal of laughter aroso from the great re Tiewers, and was taken up by the little ones, as has rarely rung in any poet's tingling ears Rince reviewing eamo into fashion. The Times set him down to roast at a whole column, the ' llser branded him with one red-hot paragraph, and from every point oi the compass the critics, big and little, heaved the coals of fire of friendless criti cism at him by the shovelful. But the poet, as Mr. Tennyson had already written, is at the moment of his birth "dowered with the hate of hate the scorn of scorn" and Mr, Marsh was not easily to be discomfited. He bought tombrerot of a wider brim than he had ever worn until then, he vowed in his inmost heart that the shears of the barbe should invade his rolling locks no more, an he ordered his tailors to add an inch or twi to the poetical cloak in which he commonly went about London. The faithless few who had worn his livery and gono about in his likeness fled from their colors. They had their hair cut in the normal way, and be gan to attire themselves in the conventional garb of gentlemen. When friends talkee about the Leader they made a weak pre tense of baring been in the secret all along, and tried to make it appear that they had been hugely tickled by the fustian which had thrilled their simple souls. The Leader had lost his following, as most leaders do when they lead to ridicule, but he faced the world alone, and meditated fresh poems with an undaunted heart. He abandoned none of his old haunts, but he found many of his old friends pitiless. There are few men who need sympathy more than the man whose book is a failure. Within it, tangible and visible, lie the nerves of his soul, if he has one; he has put into it his acutest discernment, his sweetest fancies, his lofties thoughts, his most cun ning invention; has glowed with hope and gone cold with fear about it ; ho has loved it tenderly and admiringly, as a good wife loves her husband, and with a growth of joy in its strength and beauty, as a father loves his child. Then comes the grim re viewer (born surely with bowels of brass and heart of adamant) and slays this darling of the author's heart, scalps it, slits its dear little nose and tender cars, wreaks on it all his barbarous humor of wicked invention, and throws its remains aside without even the poor satisfaction of a Christian burial. Who can need sympathy more than an au thor in such a case? But there is no moro mercy in the world for him than there is milk in a male tiger. Yet in the conclave of tn, which met in the cramped back parlor in tlio Strand, th murdered poet found men who had suffered aforetime, and known tho joy of resurrec tion. The man in the corner tossed tho light quillutsof the brain hither and thither, but he airaod them not at the unsuccessful. He had himself tried to stay the tempest, and had written that the book was not so bad after all. Had the poet known him as the dealer of that unkindest cut of all, ho would have slain b in in his corner before the spectral nine. When he entered and took his seat among them, they greeted him more kindly than o old, and made more of a comrade of him. Lorrimer, who was talking, made a point of addressing him personally, so as to make a feature of him. " Your worship was the last man in our mouths. You remember being here one day, long ago now, when I sang the praises of Miss Churchill?" " Perfectly," replied the poet, "I went with you to the final dress rehearsal, and you put into my hands the letter she left behind her." ! I was saying bo as you came in. Tha; brings the history up to the end of her con nection with the stage. Well, everybody knows what a mystery that looked. Not ft soul had an Idea where he disappeared to." 11 1 " I know," said the poet. "I met her afterward. Bhe married a fellow named Tregarthen-disreputable fellow, who wis dismissed the army; insisted on nsinf em-h fearful language at the meRs table that the other men wouldn't stand him. Well-con nected fellow I believe he's the last of one of the oldest families in Cornwall but an awful blackguard, so I'm told." " Well, upon my word," said Lorrimer, " that's a pretty sort of cove to forbid his wife, with his dying breath, to go upon tho stage." Mr. Lorrimer's theory carried him that length. ' "Dead:" said the poet. Is he dead? " ell, Khe'sverv attractive, and miitfl rniinir itta such a fortune as lie conld leave her sne won t he long without a husband." ronunei" echoed Lorrimer. "8he nasn i any fortune. Bless your soul, she's as poor as a church-mouse.

Outside his verses he was a harmless man, and had not the least desir ;to hurt anybody. He had long ago been able to forgive Mrs. Treearthen for snub. bing him, and he was sensitive to a tale of beauty in distress as a toet oucht to be. Lorrimer told his story of tho interview between himself and the lost star of the stage, and everyliody agreed that the dead .Tregarthen of Mr. Lorrimer's imagination was the last tort of person who had a right to have bis dying wishes gratified When the conclave parted and the poet walked jinto the Strand, be dived into the street Lorrimer had mentioned andTeod the door- jatwiJboroe little trouble In the gather THE DAILY ii.g dusk until he came upon the hoarding house. Ho remembered tho brilliant mid stately creature who had swept so haught ily away from his impertinent presenco ut Tro gurthen, ami felt unhappy to think that she was housed in this frowsy caravanserai. He hnd seen her twice, anil she had certain ly ill-treated him, and yet ho felt such an interest in hor as few women hud inspired him with. (She was poor mid in grief nnj a widow. Mr. Ronald Marsh left the street slowly and sadly, and thought how full of trouble was the world, nnd musei! on Death and tho Reviewers, and sucL grisly themes. It was no business of any man's, but tvc or three peoplo vt i knew him caught tut poet In tho act of leaving that street aftor dark, with a certain marked air of furtive idronture. If any hopes of seeing Mrs. Tregarthen again drew him that way, or if ho merely went to moon in the neighbor hood because it induced that curious sense of tho abolition of moral responsibilities with regard to language which is so valua ble to poets, would seem to bo uncertain. When you relax your brains fur the manu facture of verses, nnd allow them to flow out where they will, diffuse and devious, a remembrance of some person of tho oppo site sex servos as a sort of center for tho tides, dissipating or rallying them tjuito apart from the will of the patient. It had growu into winter-time, and tho rainy night had fallen upon London, ami the streets had a fungous odor in the rain, and were inch-deep in mud, when the poet, bearing his demon with him, slashed past the lodging-house top-booted, with his som Irero picturesquely flapping and his long cloak picturesquely flying in the wet wind which blew up from the river. Ho was scathing a reviewer, and would have thrown his annuul income into the Thames to have secured a stately rhyme to " viper;" but just as he passed the boarding-house door it opened, and the merest glance assured "him that Mrs. Tregurtuuu stood thereat tired for the street. A second or two later the wind caught the door, and slamme! it noisily. Tho poet moderated his headlong lace, paused nnd turned. Mrs. Tregar- tlion's tall and graceful figure went flutter ing Strandward. Ronald Marsh knew perfectly well that it is not counted a gentlemanly thing to follow a lady without her knowledge nnd consent, and he piqued himself on beinj gentleman almost more than on being a poet. Ueelid not think it honorable to dog a lady's footsteps, and It was no affair of his to know whither she was bound on foot on a night so iuolemiut. While he thousrlit thus ho followed Mrs. Tregnrthen, regulat ing his own pace to hers. 1 his was shame- lul, and iio turned away, out only for a second. When he locked again tlie flutter ing figure was gone, though thero was no opening on the street to right or left, and no had seen her outlined like n wavering silhouette against the (strand lights a mere fraction of time ago. A special puddle lay abreast of where he had last seen her, no ticeable because it caught the lights of the bright street beyond and reflected them like a mirror laid aslant. He kept his eyes up on this landmark, and, though as he grew closer the light faded from it, he knew that he had not lost the place. He was sure with a keener pung than anything but the reviews had hitherto caused lain that he had not lost the place; for where the wind beaten figure had disappeared stood a" swing ing door, and above it the triune gloles of gold. Poverty's storm-drum is mast Lib all the year round. The young man drew into the shallow of a corner, and watched the dor, w ith no memory of his scruples of half a minute back. It was not the business of the mo ment to analysize the motives which moved him, but they were nine-tenths made up of pity and a helpless wish to be of service. He had to wait in the wind and r;iiii for full five minutes before the swinging-door opened, and Mrs. Tregarthen reappeared, heavily veiled, and ran against the beating wind to the door of tho boarding-houac, where she paused to uso a latch-key, and then disappeared swiftly. At the thought of yuuth, and grace, and genius brought to such a pass as this tho poet 'vas grieved, and he walked miserably way, not seeing how to be of use, but bur ned with a heavy sense of the necessity r doing something. A man may be brim-' fill of conceit, and may write bad verses,: ml yet have a good heart. He walked omn and dressed for dinner, and dined moodily with people who laughed at him or being moody. Then he went, at a late hour, to the theater, and there encountered Lorrimer. He had something of a struggle with himself before he could take the man ner into confidence, but at length he did t, swearing him to secrecy. Lorruner heard him through with uu expression of face bordering on the distracted. If I dont find out something about this by-ttU(lby,v said the manager, " I shall go mad. Come here, into the box-office. Look at this advertisement iu the Tim?. Where are we! Oh, here it is. Head that." The poet read- Miss Churchill is requested to claim her private fortune at the hand:, of Messrs. Lowe & Carter, of Clements inn. A. 1. "Sow," said Lorrimer, when Ronald Marsh looked wonderingly up at him, "what the Moses is it all about f These people, Lowe & Carter, were the lawyers whopuid nie my claim against Mis Chun hill. Slio had money then, or the lneuns of getting money, or she couldn't have left the stage and have paid my claim. Now, here she id in financial dilheultii!, running to the pawn brokers and I'll swear she's a lady, born and bred and all the while she's asked in the newspapers to go and claim hor private fortune! Because you know it's as plain as the no a; on your face that it's the sumo wo man. Who said Tregarthen was dead.'" said theiioet. " These ure his initials " I said he was dead," returned Lorri mer. " hill' told Hie so." Hn wn foiitn persuaded that she hud done so. " It mut lie tho same woman. Anyway, I'll f-11 you what 1 can do. 1 an go and sec the law yers and tell 'em her uddress. We have done business toge;h.-r already. Since 1 saw this adverti-enieut I've hud the curi osity to turn over the file of the Twin, and I find that it's been published every day fur nearly two months. I wish I could persuade her to con.e back to the boards. Unless her private fortune u a ureciuus bi one, I'd guarantee to double it for her. hue s a perfect gold mine. Thero nevrf was such a Rosalind, and 1 don't liclievo there ever will be such another." The sense of romance and mystery which seamed to grow up about Mrs. Tragarthen helped to keep her in Konuld Marsh's' mind, and he U-gun to haunt tho street she lived in, and, during tho hours of darkness, vi prow i about Its neighborhood, until tho police set watchful eyes upon him and booked him in their ow n minds as a person with an unlawful purpose. Lorrimer wrote to the lawyers, asking it the Miss Churchill ndvertised was identical with the Miss Churchill in whose lehulf they hud done bunlness aforetime. Receiv ing an answer h, tllu allirmalive, lie sup plied them with her address und waited to hear more. N0 news reached him untd tho poet turned up one evening, with greatly disturbed asct, und an nounced that Mrs. Trogurthen and thei little girl who lived with her had left the UAlitO BUU.KT1N: SUNDAY MORNfNQ MARCH 9, 1884. bom ding-house, and hnd taken now lodg ings in a street olf tho Tottenham Court Itoiul that both she ond - the child were poorly and scantily dressed, and thut the house in which she now lived was fit only for tho occupation of the very poor. Lor rimer went to the lawyers, begging to be enlightened. They, inquiring courteously into his right to claim enlightiiient anu finding it to be non-existent, respectfully declined to snt isfy him. Ho retreated, and had new conferences with the poet, who wus melodramatically gloomy, and let fall deadly hints about villainy, ond betrayal, and the wild justice of rovcugo, perplexing Lorrimer still moro. At last, spu rred by his lofty hopes of the actress's post ible fu ture and his own, nnd moved at least in part by the promptings of good nature, and bound to a solution of the mystery by n very cable of curiosity, ho leaped im patiently into a lmckuey-carrh:go, and set out in search of Mrs. Tregarthen. He had Ler address from the poet. " Sun-blistered paint, years old, upon tho floor; thick veils of dust upon tho windows; a mere well of an area, with rusted railings round it; doorstops cracked and sunken ut the center." " She might have a house in Park Lune by this time," thought Lorrimer, as he scanned the place, " and yet she lives hero, What was her private fortune, I wonder tho Inst curse of a dying mother-in-law? It looks like it." When ho tugged at tho bell -pull a long piece of rusted iron cnine out from the door-post with a reluctant creak, lie pushed it back again, and topped the blis tered door with his gloved knucYles. A slatternly woman came into the well of au area, wiping her hands upon a dirty apron, ami having inspected him, went leisurely into tho house again, and after a pause, which seemed long to his impatience, opened tho front door an inch or two, and regarded him afresh in unpromising silence. (iood morning," said Lorrimer, with smooth politeness. "You have a lady staying here, ma'am. I believe, and I should bo extremely obliged if I might be allowed to s.-e her. We are old friends, and I have been informed that she is in some distress." Lorrimer was gorgeous as to his attire, and his manner we.s almost monarchical. As he spoke he drew a half-crown from his waistcoat pocket und holding it delicate ly ' between his finger and thumb, like a duke ixTforming a playful conjuring trick, dropped it into the woman's palm, which came automatically to receive it. The woman opened tlie door a little wider. "Do you mean Mrs. Tregarthen, sir.'" bhe asked. " That," said Mr. Lorrimer, " is the la dy's name." The woman opened the door still wider, nnd permitted him to enter. A ragged oil cloth clung somehow to the floor, but the unwashed stairs were oai-petless. " What name shall I say, sir?" asked the landlady. ' Say Mr. Lorrimer," returned the man ager; but he followed closely on her heels as she mounted the stairs, nnd was resolved to present himself before he could be re fused an audience. Ho could not have told then or afterward whether pity, curi osity, or managerial enterprise drew him on more st rough-. Either the first or last would have been in itself enough, an 1 the three together were irresistible. The woman paused on a dark landing, and knocked nt a door invisible to Lorri mer. " Come in," said a voice in reply, and the knocker entered. "A gentleman to see you, ma'am,'' she said in a voice for which Lorriuier could have thrown her down stairs. He knew one side of tho world and of human nature pretty well, and he rend the hypocrisy and propitiation of the carneying tone. Ho could have sworn the woman habitually bullied her lodger. " Tell him," said Mrs. Tregarthen, in a f l ightened voice, " tliat I cannot see him. )i Lorrimer was in the room already, and had taken in half its sordid details at a glance. A bed in a corner, with n little bundle lying on it; a chair, a table, a few dresses hanging on a wall from which tho paper dripped in moist festoons; a rusty grate, empty. " Madam," said the manager advancing,' " you must not decline to see me, I come as a friend." I'ity had the better of managerial enter prise for a moment at least, and the room wont dim to Lorrimer's eyes. Mrs. Tre garthen, in a shabby black dress which mado her palo face look paler than it was, stood (in tho attitude in which she hail arisen from her seat on the side of the bed) with both hands on the table, her w holo figure shrinking like that of any weak,1 wihl creature when suddenly alarmed. i , "Oblige mo by leaving us, if you please," ; said Lorrimer, to tho landlady. The wo-1 man reluctantly withdrew, and Lorrimer held the door open to watch her down the' stairs. He could not help being stagey, for use is second nature, but ho was thor oughly in earnest when he turned: "My poor, dear creature don't mind me talking to you in this way I'm old enough to be your father my poor, dear creature, what on earth do you mean by living in a place like this?" Bhe had only moved to breathe' sinco his first entrance to the room, and her eyes said, " Leave me, for pity's sake!" if ever eyes said anything. But, as he paused, the bundle on the bed began ;to move, and a feeble cry came from it. Bhe darted to it, peeled from it, swiftly and delicately, the shawl, which infolded it, and took it to her arms. A baby! "Oh, Lord!" groaned the manager, with the tears in his eyes again. " How can you have the heart to throw away such pros pects as you hove, when you've got such chums upon you?" She looked ut him almost wildly, and; walked up and down the room rocking thei crying child in her arms, lie thought the look defiant, and broke out anew. "Any grown-up creature has a right toi starve and be wretched, but, by God! ina'nm, nobody has a right to ill-treat ai baby. It's criminal, Mrs. Tregarthen; it's nothing less than monstrous. How dare you throw away that child's chances in tho' world?" Lorrimer trod the boards with the air of amazed virtue. "How dare you Reak so to mei" she demanded, pausing suddenly in her agitated walk aliout tho room. " What riht have you hero ?" " For Ood s sake, don t bo angry with mei" said Lorrimer, descending from his place of moral pride. " I'm tho best friend you have in tho world; lam in deed." Ho was no longer the representa-1 tivo of virtuo amazed, but had beconio tho attached old family servitor, und pleuded with tho last willful descendant of tho raco he loved. At this moment thero came a rap at tho door, and the landlady appeured, bearing n bulky parcel and a letter. To U C'hliiintd True. If Important. N'ew York Hun.
