Would I lilto to meet tho man who

considered myself well paid. "Kath

pongs that will last forever, utiil hero Is
one of them. Tho maiden slugs it to
licr lover, and her granddaughter lu
turn slugs it to her lover. Its niitsle,
touching anil sweet, wakens all true
love mid longing ami tender regrets.
When wo weak mortals are tempted to
forget the old loves sometimes, and we
hear "Kathleen Mnvourncen" sung, the
soft, thrilling notes waft us back to our
trito faith ami loyalty and bring its up

of tho music of "Kathleen Mavourneen.'
Tho words, by tho way, wore written by
nu English lady, Mrs. Crawford.
Professor Crouch is n handsome old
gentleman, with brilliant, beautitul
dark eyes ami u long, gray military
mustache. Ho has exquisitely graceful
and courtly manners, rare to see in our
country. Hut Professor Crouch is mi
Englishman, who lenrnod his manners
before our "hollo" telephono days.

Icon Mavourneen" has been wurining
nnd melting tho hearts of all true lovers
nuil all well wishers of true lovers, and
when W2 is ushered in it will still be
fulfilling its sweet mission. But what
will you say when I tell you that Pro
fessor Crouch lias never received ono
cent of money for tho song? Fact.

America huvo made their thousands of
dollars oil tho sheet music, and never

tho peoplo who lovo his song would givo
him n fortune
But tho experience of till for mo was
wheu Professor Crouch went to the
piano and sang "Kathleen Mavour
neen," softly playing tho accompani
ment with his own hands. It would
havo given yon "thrills" to hear him,
just ns it did me. It was touching be
yond uny words of mlno to tell, tho
notes falling on tho ear, now in a rich,
sweet baritone, now quavering and un
steady, from tho lips of tho man who
composed the music of tho imperishablo
eong fifty-four years ago. Do you know
what I did at the close? 1 just put my
arms around thu musician's neck nnd
gave him a big squeeze. Ono had to do
that or else cry or run away, und 1
always hated crying.
I wus so wrought up I quite forgot as
I went home that I was walking through
State street, tho most beautiful highway
in the atate and the prido of every Maine
native, witli its double rows of magnifi
cent elms, which havo been "growing
there forever," they say. I saw only a
picture of man standing in thu door
way, looking out of a pair of brilliant
dark eyes and bidding me good by with
his grand eld school bow. I heard
founding in my ears only those throb
bing bars of melody, "Kathleen Mavour
neen. the gray dawn is breaking."
Everybody who loves "Kathleen Mavour
neen" must help his friends see to it that
tho dawn of happiness and prosperity
shall cotno for Nicholls Crouch.
