Frank U Ktanton in Atlanta Constitution.
Up at the ton of the studio bnildins
in three araall, cheap rooms lived old
Parkes and bis daughter Rose. She
waa a very prrtty girl, and her fignre
was so good that iibe always prm okod

kept her eyes modcrtly bent on the as
phalt walk, apparently quite uncon
scious vf the admiration she excited. It
was the upinion of those who wore ac
quainted with old Parkes' works that
bo was ly far the best thins he had
ever produced. - -
The truth i. old Partes did not cet
along; very wclL How bo pot along at
all, was a mystery until Rose and he
becaino acquainted with littlo Saccr,
duo ox tno best fellows that ever lived.
Rose, who was a born financier, per
haps could have explained bow tbey
managed to exist. At a ridiculously
rarly hour in tho morning she went to
market with a basket, and slio had the
knack of making a dfiicinntily appetis
ing dish with very littlo for a founda
tion. In short. Row was a genius, and
withont her old Parkee wonld have
ftmtxl himself long ago in the poorhouae.

wm too broad and free, and the people
were not np to him. Then, too. his
canvases wero generally so large that
tbry were not adapted to tho walla of
the average drawing room, and bo cap
ped it all by petting a price on them
thnt frightened buyers off. As one well
known critic put it, be would have done
much better 50 years hence. Certainly
ho would not have done worse.
The few of his fellow artists who knew
hiai did not like old Parkes very much,
though tlH'V fully approved of Rose.
His lifelong rtruglo with poverty had
soured his disposition, and the nasty,
cutting things ho snid were by no means
relished. His overwhelming conceit
rendered him a moot disagreeable per
son, lie rated liimself lar above the
younger and moro snccwwfnl men pot
boiMTs, ho contemptuously referred to
them and it dazed hint to think that
they sbonld do so well and he so lmdly.
Rose wr.s the only person he could get
along wilh. and he had never said an un
kind word to her in his life. Whenever
he looked at her, ho would always think
of her mother, dead r-o many years, and
then ho wonld sigh to himself. Rose,
who knew what be was thinking of,
would como to him and throw her arms
around his neck, with never a word.
When little Spacer fell bead over
heels in lovo with Rose, their financial
condition luctcriully improved. As I
have already said, he was one of the
best fellows thnt ever lived, and be was
on the staff of a metropolitan newspaper
and enjoyed a very good salary.
Ho knew notbiug at &u about art.
which was the reason why perhaps tho
city editor gave htm no ninny assign
ments to write of it. With a few stock
words and phrases, such as ''chiaroscu
ro." "fine atmihere."mahterly han
dling," etc., he wrote np the exhibi
tions, nn the whole, quite creditably.
Little Spacer Erst saw Rose when he
came to her lather s studio for infor
mation as to where he was to spend the
summer. He bad been instructed to
prepare an article with tbo title "Where
Artists Will spend the Summer." Old
Parkes gruffly told him that be wasn't
going anywhere, and he carefully noted
down the fact. When ho went away.
be carried with him a vision of Hose's
oft black eyes and Rose s creamy
cheeks, and be was thinking of them
still down at tbo office when he wrote
these words, "Mr. Godfrey Parkes, the
distinguished landscape painter, "iU
remain in the city to execute a number
of important coramuationa.
After that, upon one pretext or an
other, little Spacer kept coming so of
ten that he grew to be a source of pos
itive dislike to old Parkes. With Rose,
however, it was different. The two
bad become such good friends that it
wonld have grieved her very much if
be had never come again. IittlefMnaoer
bad two rooms neaf by, in WesTxenth
street, and be haunted the park in the
hope of seeing her. Once, when be bad
been detained at the office very late and
be was coming htnu completely fagged
oat at dawn, he tied benjofrapbed by
the sight of Rose going to market, and
be had carried her basket for her, and
tbey bad bad a jolly time.
As their friendship grew stronger be
could bee bow miserably poor she was,
and often in bis lonely rooms he pon
dered over some way of helping her.
As Bene was such a proud little be
ing, be realised that be wonld have to
act with the utmost delicacy, .finally
be decided that the best plan to follow
was to bay some of her father's pic
tares, and with no other thought than
to benefit ber be began to reckleaiV la
vest ia them.
. When Boss appesaadjn
new. gown and dainty bonnet, little
Spacer fairly beamed with delight, and
the arch hypocrite continued his invest
ments even more recklessly than before.
His bare white walls filled np with
canvases for which he honestly did not
give a snap of his fingers. Old Parkes
let them all go at "euinmer prices," ia
ono caso sacrificing his "View of the
Raraapo Valley," for which he bad
asked $500 at the academy, for a beg
He was really growing to look noon,
littlo Spacer with more favor. He com;
mended his judgment and said that ho
was evidently a man of taste. Twice
be had permitted Rose to accompany
him to the Casino roof garden; and they
sat often in tho park. ' '
' On an excessively warm night little
Spacer had met Rose, and they bad
gone to tho park for a breath of air.
The green benches wero crowded with
lovers whom the heat had driven from
the suffocating neighborhood eonth of
Washington square, and many, with a
happy disregard of both propriety and
the extreme sultriness of temperature,
sat with their arms aronnd each other's
Kear the fountain they stopped to rest
for a few minntes to listen to the plash
ing of tho water in the basin, since it
sounded so delicionsly cool, and there,
in a few hurried, badly put together
words, which were quite unlike those
he had been intending to say for the
last few. months, little Spacer asked
Rose to bo his wife. And, 'without
thinking of her father, so happy wns
she. Rose said that she would, after
which they sat down on ono of the
benches where the shadows were black
est and imitated their neighbors' exam
ple. With her pretty cheeks flushed and
her black eyes sparkling, Rose put her
arms aronnd ber father s neck that ntgkt
and gave him a careful revision of all
that little Sparer bad told her. Old
Parkes said nothing, but got up and
made a circuit of the room several times
a way he had of doing when he got cx
cited. Then be sat down at the table
and buried his face in bis arms.
" He's robbed me of tuy pictures, and
now he's going to rob me of my daugh
ter! he said bitterly.
"Oh, papa, don't talk like that!"
cried Rose, quite distressed. "Of course
Cbanncey couldn't afford to give you
what the pictures wero really worth,
"I should say not." broke in old
Parkes moodily. 'The Rninapo Vol
ley,' 42 by G4, $ 30; 'The Highlands at
Navesink,' 18 by 84, 30. I can't go
on. It s really too ridiculous."
"But, papa, dear, I don't know what
wo wonld bave done without the jnon
cy.said Rose. "The old dealer on
rut ii avenno wouldn t take anymore
at fjj apiece, you know.
"ery veil," growled old Farkes.
"Harry him, if your mind is set upon
it. i on re of ago and can do as you
like, I suppose. If you leave mo, I dare
say I fchall get along somehow."
"I shall never leave vou." said Rose
grimly, and coming over tho kised
him. "Cbanncey and I have planned
tiiat we three are to live together."
iow, it cnaneetf tire very next uay
tant old Pnrkes was laid up with rhen
matism. and for tlirevj long months be
was unable to bold a brush in bis band.
Little Spacer caiuo heroically to the
robcuo and bought so many pictures
that he was obliged at last to close out
his once comfortable account in the
Greenwich Savings lank. Everything
in old Parkes' studio found its wav to
his walk and finally they were so oo
cred that he was obliged to stack them
up one against another.
Often he w,nld stand with bis hands
in his lockets gazing at them ruefullv,
His only cheerful thought was that it
was not nionoy thrown away. It was
for Rose's sake that he bad bought
them, end they had brought he r mstny
a comfort that otberwiso she would not
have had. Rose and he were to be mar
ried in the Hiring.

side liy side at Julion's in Paris, and M,
Villeniont made it his business to hunt
np bis old friend. The artistic contin.
gent lionized the new arrival, and news
papers devoted whole columns to him.
Jn an interview, which was prepared
liy little Spacer, he was made to bbv:
"I am really much surprised at the
growth of art in America. Yon have
one pnintr ns great as env that we
have in Europe. I refer to Mr. God

Whether M. Villeniont really sail
all this tr not makes no difference. It
settled the. whole business, nnd dealers
and buyers kept pouring in at tho stutlio
from morning until night. Old Parkes
threw away his oils and liniments and
was back at his easel, a new man. He
had enough commissions to keep bim
busy a year.
