We are taught, I believe, by tbe test
critical authority that the essence cf
tragedy lies iu the conflict of will and
fate, or rather in tho victory of fate
fiver tbe more or lew consciously srrug
gliug individual, and that tho catastro
phe, to be truly Greek, must in some
way result from deeda morally signifi
cant But is there not aa appallingly
tragic element in the action of fate,
when, as we so often know it, the catas
trophe lias no relation to responsibilities
anywhere ; when it is bnt a blind bolt,
falling blindly, stopping, crushing, an
nihilating, without more moral signifi
cance than is in the rain which falls
alike cn the just and on tho unjust? Ia
it not because this is tco appalling, te
rauee it frightens us as children are
frightened in the dark, that we cling so
closely to those instances of human his
tory in which deed and doom are bound
together by brief and simple sequences?
It 23 a very nnimposing little figure
that is most deeply associated in my
mind with that other and more mysteri
ous tragedy iu which tho fine and sane
and true are overpowered by that blank,
mcaninglcis and terrible power we call
One spring day, years ego, it happen
ed that for a few hours I, myself only Si
schoolgirl, was given charge, of an un
familiar village school. It was in a
leongrcl southern mountain town,
wbaro seme ccal mines wero lamely
contributing to the foundations of that
new south which as yet tho old south
scarcely grudgingly admitted as a pos
sibility. Tho school was mado up of
such a variety of elements as probably
could not have been matched at that
time in any schoolroom south of the
Ohio river. There wero Yankee chil
dren from tho east and the west, moun
tain born and southern born children
(the mountaineer is southern only in a
r-hallow geographical seute), even chil
dren with a tirrgno and a touch of
broad Lancashire) dialect, but in this
crowd, so betorogencons for the south, so
homogeneous compared to tho mixtures
the north is forced to venture upon,
there was but one child who spoko the
English language with a foreign accent.
To me, as I struggled with tho open
ing class, they all seemed conspicuously
united by a common dullness. This
class was cf tho older scholars, and they
wero studying "Peter Parley's Univer
sal History," that absurd yet admirable
littlo book superseded generations agoev
erywhero but in forgotten and benight
ed southern nooks by works paralyzing
ly full cud distressingly accurate. The
lesson was about Prussia. That torpor
which naturo enables all but the liveli
est children to take on as a protection
against tho horrors of tho schoolroom
pervaded the class. The big girls and
boys nit about in attitudes of heavy
woodenuess, answering questions, when
they could answer them at all, as if
bndly constructed, insufficient machin
ery wero for the moment put in niortCn.
I was casting about in my mind as to
what would bring them to life, when,
as I quoted something from tho lesson
ubout tho king of Prussia, (the book
dated much farther back than tho seven
tits), I heard tho shiest, softest, eager
ett young voice Pay, as if the barriers
of repression had perforce given way,
"'lie's emperor now. "
I turned to sec to whom all these lea
eon words meant facte, thoughts, some
thing elsu than gibberish, with a sense
of unreasoimbly grateful refreshment.
There he.was, a broad ehonldered, dark
eyed littlo boy, about t2 years old, who
was seated, when sclnx l opened, half

"He's Dutch," remarked a boy in
tho class in a tone explanatory, but not
"What's your name?" I asked.
"Rudolph, ma'aru." It seemed that
for purposes of convenience the regular
teacher had found Rudolph name
enough and had pointedly refused to
struggle with further Teutonic sylla
bles. "Well, Rudolph, come out here and
tell theso big boys and girls about how
tho king came to bo made emperor.
Come, sit there."

of his young life bad hitherto been
spent in a fruitless search for the facts

me after rchool, and we would see what
we could da Before the class was dis
missed I found that there was nothing
very special in Rudolph's interest in
the emperor and Bismarck; that he
brought this same insatiable curiosity,
this samo large, intelligent comprehen
sion cf tbe existence cf nucomprehmd
ed causes, to other subjects.
Betore noon I was enjoying quite a
delightful small excitement about the
child. What so thrilling as discovery,
and what discovery so thrilling as to
find a mind? Rudolph-came into two
irore classes, one in spelling, where he
was recklessly and hopelessly rational
and consistent, and cne struggling with
the tedium of loug division, where ne
was slow, patient and sorely afflicted.
At noon my littlo brief authority end
ed. I left Rudolph plunging about the
playground in a game of base, rather
clumsy, something cf a butt in the
sport, and perfectly hearty and good na
tured. Before he came to me in the after
noon I had learned something about
him. IIo was known among tho men of
our household, I found, through bis
habit of 'hanging around" where any
talk about the mines was going cn,
and, oddly trough, because of his nota
,bly courteous ways at the postoffice and
the store, places where tho miners were
given to tacitly asserting their supe
riority to all other classes. His father
and mother were Germans, I was first
told, bnt Jim, a small cousin, said the
father was "half Eyetalian," and fur
ther informed mo that Rudolph was
"no good" that ho couldn't catch a
"But bo's very nice and good na
tured, isn't he?" I inquired, weakly
longing to hear only praises of my dis
covery. My young man 6tared. "Yaw," he
drawled in uncomprehending derision
and disappeared around the corner of
tho porch on his hands.
I was sitting on the porch when Ru
dolph came, a little awkward, but with
al much more pleased than shy, stop
ping to wipe his bare feet cn the grass,
and beforo ho was fairly under the roof
taking off his shapeless rag of a hat,
with a bright smile cf greeting. I had

Rudolph soon recognized tbe necessi

began to put mo through a most ex
haustive examination on Franco-German

too superficial and too qualified. He
caught continually at main lines of
causation, which could to followed on

sternness, when I hud tried to describo

"Hello, Dntchy!" called Jim from

I soon made my way to the despoiled
hillside rhalf pocr village, half bare
woods where was Rudolph's home. It
was a neat little cabin, and I was
pleased to find the family all there the
littlo Teutonic blond sister, tho work

tho big, dark father, with his touch of
Latin vivacity appearing and disappear

Rudolph gazed at me, pleased and
proud and possessive possessive of ev
crybedy and silently brought the littlo
passive sister to my elbow, that I might
better note her charms.
I sent him off to 11 my bottle with
1 water from tho sulphur spring, so that
I could talk better about himself.
"I think Rudolph is a very remark

smart boy," I added in my effort to
make myself comprehended. '

tho doorstep where he stood, "he iss

tenched first his forehead, then his

Tho word had been well loam-

boy was not clever with his hands. Per

I arranged that Rudolph should come
and see me often, and laboriously sup

promises and prophecies as to his future.
Who knew wbat could or could not be

-1 captivating thing about Ru
dolph's mind was tbe curious absence
of any touch of precocity. It was as
normal as a blackbird's; all its pecul
iarity seemed to lie in its superior
soundness, reasonableness end activity;
things were, real to him; phenomena
needed to be accounted for. He was al
ways trying to accomplish the explana
tion, striking for tbe roots cf things.
He had a sleepless desire to find out.
His interest in history it did not, by
tho way, reach tbe point cf enabling
him to derive pabulum from tbe usual
historical classics was as simple in its
way as Jim's in the story of, a possum
hunt Tbe difference was that Rudolph
had tho qualities that enabled him to
grasp the verity cf the larger games,
while poor Jim conld culy comprehend
the existence of things akin to bis expe
rience. I tried, of course, a hundred youthful
experiments with this delightful mind
and came to the conclusion that it was
net an artist's organ ; that it was meant
for the conduct of largo affairs at first
bend, not for any plastic or poetis after
interpretation cf tbeiu. Not that be was
