PRESENT INTERMEDIATE
PUPILS IN RECITAL
An interesting event last evening
was the pupil recital given by the
Columbian Conservatory of Music
at the Westminster Congregational
church. Although this school has
only been In existence in this city
for a matter of a few months the
work done last evenlcg was credlt
able.to a large degree and gave evi
dence of careful and capable In
struction. The school Is a worthy
addition to th musical interests of
the city and in time should be of as
great credit in proportion aa it Is
In the cities of the middle west.
The pupils were assisted by Miss
Ailice A. Ham, contralto, and Miss
Bernice Jackson, reader.

(Continued.)
you saw him talking to me today,
what do you suppose he was talk
ing about? You. When the man
in the stable just now answered in
your name, I felt as if Heaven had
reached down and picked you up
from somewhere and put you in my
hands as an answer to what Sid
ney Maxwell said. He told me that
Christmas never came but tbe
thought of you was with him; that
when his own boys played with
their toys around their tree he re
membered always how you and he
had played together; that he had
tried in vain to find you; that It
was a constant grief that he and
his father had judged you harshly;
that he would give his fortune to
know where you are and make
things right."
As the man listened, defiance
melted out of him; be did not
answer or look up. The clergyman
went on.
"You see what child's play It
seemed to me when you spoke of
stealing three thousand dollars,
with the Maxwell millions waiting.
Not that it would have been pos
sible in any case," he added quick
ly. "You thought you could do It,
but you never could —never."
"Perhaps I couldn't," tbe man
said brokenly. "1 meant to—l
don't know what stopped me."
"The Lord," Harding answered
tersely. "It isn't tbe first time He
has made children His messen
gers."
Maxwell lifted hisaeyes dreamily,
like a man who had been uncon
scious and who was coming slowly
back to a world too good to be true.
"I—l used to believe those things,"
he said. "I'd tike to, now. I've
been a long way down. But I've
never liked it. Ive —been unhappy.
It doesn't seem possible that I'm
to have a chance. I was coming
here to drown myself in Meadow
Brook—l thought I was at the end
of the rope. That was my jilan
this afternoon. And then I heard
you and Sidney—and I was glad to
get a chance to live. I'm too strong
to die easily. I think—l think it's
in me yet to work hard and make
a place for myself. I think So. I
never enjoyed being scum—only
you know I always went headlong
whichever way I started, and it was
the same with the bad life I've been
living. I can't believe I've been
faced about —In a minute."
The clergyman had pushed the
man Into a deep chair; the firelight
washed a friendly vagueness over
the shabby clothes and over his
face, molding now into new lines
under a crisis. His eyes lifted to
his friend's with a dazed gaze
which had lost bitterness. Doctor
Harding, standing over him, laid a
calm hand on his shoulder.
'My lad," he spoke gently, "it
appears to me that going Into
wrong-doing is like going Into a
tunnel that leads downhill to dark
ness. At every step the walking
harder, and the air gets worse, and
It's dirtier and more uninteresting.
And all the time all you have to
do Is to face about, and you see
the sunlight.
"Of course It's not simple getting
back —I know (hat. Sure as fate
you'll bark your shins, and stagger
ALL ABOUT
THE DOINGS
OF YOUR SEX
This Is Miss
Helen Taft In her
"c o m i n g-out"
dress. Tbe presi
dent's daughter
ignored the tradi
tion which pre
scribes white for
the debutante,
and appeared fn
a gown ef an ex
quisite new shade
of rose messaline
satin, made with
a long, pointed
tunic over a satin
underdresa, the
top of the bodice
finished with
point lace.
She wore some
pearls and dia
monds about her
neck. Her soft
brown hair was
dressed in a
mass of soft puffs
and she carried
an armful of prok
roses as she stood
with her father
and mother to re
ceive the 2500
guests in the
flower-laden east
room.
Miss Taft is the
thirteenth of the
"daughters of the
nation" who have
"come out" at the
white house, but
despite that un
lucky number her
"coming out" re
ception was one
of the most bril
liant in the his
tory'of the execu
tive mansion.
From now on
she will be the
central figure in
the season's gay-1
into holes, and fall down, and may
be get discouraged. But, Heavens,
man! What's that, when you see
daylight, and see you're getting to
It! Wat's more, you'll see the faces
of friends you didn't know you had,
waiting for you—they were there
all the time and you wouldn't look
at them —you were facing tbe
wrong way.
-"Of course a poor soul may wan
der so far into the depths that he's
beyond seeing the light—that's the
awful danger." The clergyman
sighed. "But even then a hand
stronger than your own will pull
yon out. if you'll trust to It. How
ever" —his tired face brightened—
"however, you're not in that case,
Carl. You've swung about, and
sunshine and friends are waiting
for you—a clean life —a man's work
—a place In the world. It's won
derful how much less bad a bad
situation usually Is than we think.
This afternoon you were going to
kill yourself; you were saved from
that by the hope of a crime; then
tw babies spoke a message and you
listened to It and faced about.
That's the secret, to face about, to
face right."
Like drops of a strong cordial the
words struck hot shaft into Max
well. A clean life —a man's work
—a place In the world."
He felt with a shock the strength
and the will to get these things.
The worn man whose Inspired eyes
burned him, who stood for a force
beyond either of them, had poured
strength and will Into him. He
threw out his arms, drew s quick
breath, and rose to his feet reso
lutely.
"Lord helping me, I'll do It," he
said.
"That's the way to go at the busi
ness," Harding said, his face glow
ing with enthusiasm. "You'll do
it, that way."
And with that the clock In the
hall struck 4, and from up stairs
there was suddenly an eruption and
a descent of barbarians. Alice and
Benny, mysteriously warned In a
dream of their father's arrival,
came down upon him, like a wolf
on the fold, and all but tore him
limb from limb with stress* of af
fection, and then, all at once, aware
of the stranger, they were shy and
lapsed Into silence. But Doctor
Harding took his girl's hand and
put It into Carl Maxwell's.
"Ive brought home an old friend.
Alice," he said. "Wish him a
Merry Christmas, my dear."
And Alice smiled and said the
words, while Benny, strangling his
father, reinforced the greeting with
full, slow tones.
'Merry Christmas, old fren'—an'
a Happy New Year," said fhe de
liberate Benny.
Harding, hung with children,
loosened a hand to pat the man'a
shoulder. His eyes were bright
with the vision of the pure in heart,
who see Ood in mankind.
"Benny's hit It," he said. "That's
what wo all wish you, and what's
coming, Carl —a happy New Year!"
(The End.)

thor and lecturer on history, died
yesterday. He wss born at Eper
