- William Morris and Music
Snmfl iilinr. savs a writer in The Sat
urday Review, takes it on himself to as
sure the world that William Morris bad
no musical sense. As a matter of fact,
he had a perfect ear, a most musical
singing voice, and 60 hue a sense or.
baantv in sound (as in every tning eisej
that he could not endure the clatter of
tho, tiianoforte or the squalling and
shouting of the average singer. When I
told him that the Amsterdam choir
hrnnirht over hero bv M. de Lance had
Hisrnvprprl the secret of the beauty of
mediaeval mnsic and sang in with sur-
nnssine excellence, he was full or regret
for having missel it, and the viol con
certs of M. Dolmetsch pleased him
greatly, indeed, once during nis nness,
when M. Dolmetsch played him some
really beautiful music on a really beau
tiful instrument, he was quite overcome
I once urged him to revive the man
ufacture of musical instruments and
rescue us from the vulgar handsomeness
of the trade articles with which our or
chestras are equipped, and he was by
no means averse to the idea, having al
ways, he avowed, thought he should
like to make a good fiddle. Only neither
in music nor in anything else could you
engage him in any sort of intellectual
dilettantism. He would not waste his
time and energy on the curiosities and
fashions of art, but went straight to its
highest point in the direct and simple
production of beauty.
The Child of a Village.
All the scenes and atmosphero of one's
native village if one is fortunate
enough to have been born in such a lo
cality lie around the memory like the
horizon line, unreachable, impassable.
Even a socalled cosmopolitan man has
never seemed to me a very happy being,
and a cosmopolitan child is above all
things to be pitied. To be identified in
early memories with some limited and
therefore characteristic region that is
happiness. No child is old enough to be
a citizen of the world. What denation
alized Americans hapten to stain p as
provincial is. for children at least, a sav
ing grace. You do not call a nest pro
vincial. All this is particularly truo of
those marked out by temperament for a
literary career. Literature needs for its
material only men, nature and books,
and of these the first two are every
where and the last are easily transport
able, 6inceyou can pile the few supreme
authors of the world in a little corner
of the smallest log cabin. The Cam
bridge of my boyhood afforded me all
that human heart could ask for its ele
mentary training. Thoso who doubt it
might perchance have been tho gainers
if they had shared it. "He despises iuo,
said Ben Jonson, "because I live in an
alley. Tell him his soul lives in an al

Madame'a Quiet Answer.
It would not do to specify tho restau
rant. It is enough to say that it happen
ed in a French restaurant well patron
ized by thoso whose French consists of
"garcou," "oui" and "demi-tasse."
The place was well filled, and madame
at the receipt of custom was busy mak
ing change, smiling to the customers,
frowning deep French frowns at the
waiters and shrugging her shoulders
and eyebrows at M. le Mari.

with a shrug of her shoulders, "then
But the man had gone back to his

Guileless Ixie Fuller.
Loie Fuller has never worn a corset
in all her life. Her figure is round,
beautiful, firm. Her gowns are fashion
ed in the empire style, her bats are im
mense and beplumed, and her manners
are gracious and altogether delightful.
Her modesty is possibly her greatest
charm. She told the writer recently:
"I see posters about the street, and I
think Loie Fuller must bo some one
else. I can't get used to the fame part
of my career. In Paris, where I became
known, I was driven to the theater and
home again without knowing how I
was being talked about. One day I re
quired some pocket handkerchiefs, and
my mother and I walked into a shop.
'See, mamma,' I cried, 'there are Loie
Fuller handkerchiefs, and there are silks
named after that person too. I wonder
who can have my name. It turned out
that I was the namesake of all manner
of wearable articles of femininity."

A Story of Lord Ampthlll.
The following story is told of the late
Lord AmpthilL When he was a junior
clerk in the foreign office, Lord Palmer
ston, then foreign secretary, introduced
an innovation whereby instead of being
solemnly summoned by a verbal mes
sage the clerks were expected to answer
his bell. Some haughty spirits rebelled
against being treated like footmen and
tried to organize resistance, but Odo
Russell, as he then was, refused to join
the rebellious movement, 6aying that
whatever method apprised him most
quickly of Lord Palmerston's wishes
was the method which he preferred.
The aggrieved clerks regarded him as a
traitor to his order, but he died an em
bassador. And She Went Quickly.
"Mamma has just gone across the
street, ma'am," said the demure little
6-year-old to the caller.
"Did she Bay when Bhe'd be back?"
asked the lady.
"Yes'in," demurely as before,
"just as soon as you had gone, ma'am. "
