THE LITLE 1JLACK FIDDLE.
It huag in the garict, on one of the
big nails there, all around it the lumber
of an old house trunk, broken chairs,
a superannuated chest ot drawers, a
Years and years ago a tramp had been
taken in at the door iu a fainting condi
tion. He lay all day in a stupor on the
settee where they had placed him ; and,
moved with pity, and in some slight con
Mentation as to what was to become of
him, and of themselves, too, if this state
continued, tLe household did what they
could do tor him. Just before dark he
began to murmcr a broken jargon of
English and foreign tongues, and took
his littie black fiddle tfrom his side, and
gave it to Mr. Urookswith as impressive
' an air. as if he bestowed a kingdom; the
children looked on, wide-eyed and open
mouthed. Then he died, and was buried,
and nobody ever knew anything further
about him; end the children twanged
the fiddle a while, and at last it was
hung up iu the gartet, and there had
been the end of it.
The little fiddle hung forgotten oh its
nail; but the children grew in strength
and beauty every day, and made the
house nearly as lively as the ark must
have been in all the iorty days before it
rested on Ararat. Sometimes the little
fiddle vibrated to their laughter, and
::ivti it a iaint echo from its hollow
breast, but thut was all the share it had
What a cheerful group they were,
licllc and Jessie jlnd Fred and Frank,
and the twins .rolling over each other,
and chuckling as if that were the
freshest joke in the worU. They were
just as cheerful when a dczen years had
passed, and the children were becoming
men and women, childish boistcrousucss
was becoming high bred gayety and the
special talent was developing that which
belonged to each of them.
Hut the general talent of that family
was for charity. They had a qcnius for
i' a genius, as Mr. Brooks' neighbors
used to say, for timing themselves out
of doors in order to let somebody in ; a
little house, but the largest you ever
knew, for it held the most hospitable
to the rich and poor, but the -wayfarer
never leaving it unrcfreshed, the sufferer
Yet the means to do so much were but
limited. Mr. Brooks had but a small
income; Mr. Brooks found it ncccssarv
to count every penny twice over, to turn
hnd piece and remake, and never waste a
crumb. But when that w'as all done,
there was always something left for the
widow and the fatherless; and the mo
ment there was anything to do, cither
for North strector Five Toints, or TJor
rioboola, Mrs. Brooks' jdoor was the one
first rapped at. And what a vivid Inter
est it was that was taken throughout
that house in every case that came up,
from the time the littlo bright heads
could cluster together, the little fingers
hold a needle, the little legs run an er
rand ! You could never sec a prettier
sight than those bright heads, those
glowing faces, thoso pitying eyes, "3Iy
bunch of blossoms," Mr. Brooks used
to call them, and say they gave their
honey to Jevcry bee that vagabondized
about them. And, by-and-by, when
Belle was eighteen, and Jessie was just
turning sixteen, and the rest coming on,
this same sympathy with all suffering
was as active as of old, and Jessie's
lovely face Eccmcd every day, to grow
lovelier with the melting tenderness she
felt to every one that needed gentle
word or deed, and when she sang her
song in the evening the trait seemed
somehow to have strained itself through
the rich, sweet tones of her voice, and
to make the hearer's heart respond to its
touch and always fill his eyesjwith tears.
"Our Jessie," the father used to say,
"ought to have different instruction with
that voice. If yon hadn't been such a
Saudemaniau, wife, all yo. r life, we
should have laid by enough to send her
to Italy and have her voice cultivated as ,
it should be."
"Well, dear, would you throw away
all your pleasant memories of pain re
lieved, acd all the benefits it has wrought
in the children's characters, and take it
oat in music?" his wife would ssk. "I
should like to hare .Jessie's voice at-j
tended to; but, bles3 you, it might do
her more harm than good."
"Harm'" said Beile once, a? they
talked it over.
"Yes, dear; wc all have our vanities,
and to nurse one's pride "
"Oh, mamma, but to stand up and lift
a thousand people on your voice as if it
were wings for them! Think of that!
Of the delight she should give so many,
and then of the fortune she should make
and the things she could do! Wc would
have that children's hospital, and "
"Very true," sighed Mrs. Brooks.
"Very true," sighsd her husband., ;'I
would take $1,500 to send Jessie to Italy.
She would be too old to have it to do
her any good by the time I could get to
much money together." And just there
came in the minister's wife to see about
the concert she waj getting up for the
benefit of the poor De Maurice children,
whose parents lately organist and
soprano in the little church were lost
in the Destroyer on their way to Europe
for some purpose, at which concert
Jessie was to sing a song, if she could
find the courage.
"You necdu't be afraid, Jesiie," said
tho good minister's wife; "there's
nobody in the audience that knows a
note more music than you do."
"Oh, but he will thcviolinist, you
know; and Madame Bcuter, if she
"She's coming. We're to pay expenses.
And she represented the case to Signor
Pazzani, and told him they were the
children of musicians, and he volun
teered. It was too good of him ! They
arc to stay with me."
"Oh, not both of them, Mrs. King;
one enough, with all your care. Send
one's here," said Mrs. Brooks.
"Well, I should be glad to, really. I'll
send you the signor. Now Jessie, sing
"The harp that once through Tara's
halls,' just as if you were on the plat
form, and we were all down on the seats
And so Jessie sang it, and her voice
swelled out as if a joung sibyl sang
with the words,
"Thus Freedom now so seldom wakes -;
The only throb she girts
Is when some heart indignant breaks,..
To show that ctlll she lives."
And the minister': wife cried
One afternoon next week Madame
Reuter came down, and Mrs. King
brought the Signor Pazzani into the
Erookses' parlor and left him.
It was not much preparation the
Brookscs had been able to make for
their distinguished guest; they could
only fill his room lull to overflowing
with Belle's flowers, that grew and
blossomed in every window the winter
long. As for their table, it was always
a miracle of snow and parsely trimmed
dishes, and it was impossible for them
to make much difference. They found,
though, that it was of no consequence,
for the signor was indifferent to every
thing but bread and fruit and salad, and
presently looked about him for the
young lady who was to sing.
"You arc she," he said, presently, to
Jessie, and began talking with her about
her music while he crumbled his bread.
But it was not until somo hours after
they left the table that he came down
from his room and demanded to hear
what she could do.
Poor Jessie had no more idea of hesi
tating or refusing than if an angel of
annunciation had appeared and bidden
her. She went instantly to the piano,
though Belle ran before her to play the
accompaniment. Belle had to play the
prelude twice over, though, before Jessie
could command her voice; and in the
first measure it trembled so that she
was afraid she would have to stop, and
she was pale as death. "Courage, cour
age, my child," cried tho signor, and
she took a little and went on; and soon
she forgot the signor and her fright, and
was singing as freely as a bird in the
wild wood. "It is grand! It is deli
cious!" cried the signor in his own
tongue, which Jessie and Bello under
stood tolerably. "It is a voice in a
thousand. In a thousand I A voice in
millions! It is the nightingale's! and
it must have care, study, training-
Jessie shook her head and felt very
much like crying. She knew if she
ever showed the least desire for Italy,
her father would cramp himself, her
mother forego her comfort the children
deny themselves everything; they would
sell the piano, move into a meaner house,
live on little, give nothing away. She
had never intimated that she thought
the thing worth while. Now she shook
her heart and ventured- to say in such
Italian as she had, "It is imnnihi,.
Plcascdon't speak of it; it would only'
make grief here. But thank you for the
And then the Signor gazed hard at the
lovely face with its madonna like oval,
and its great, solt dark eyes, and said:

seek my violin. It was to come by ex

No; it had not come, and what was
more, it never would come in its old
suape. the express had aet with an
accident, and all its contents had been
shattered. The violin that the Queen of
Holland had given Signor Pazzani, that
Jaques Stamcr had made himself in the
Tyrol two hundred years ago and more,
was uuuung uui a uamtlul of chips.
It was an intensely cold and still
winter's day; there was not a sound to
be heard in tbc village, save cow and
then a distant sleigh bell, the dropping
of some huge icicle, or the loud report
of some nail as it sprung with the frost
in the rafters. As the signor sat there
now with the broken volute of his violin
in his left hand, and the other wound in
bis hair distractedly, cne of these nails
went off, as you might say, with more
of an explosion than usual upon the
frosty silence of tho afternoon, followed
by a clear, resonant note that for a half
moment seemed to fill the house with a
silvery vibration. They all heard it, and
looked up bewildered; and suddenly
Jessie, with a joyous cry, sprang to her
feet and darted from the room. The
garret door had been lvft open by some
body she found. In a moment she was
back, and had placed in the hands of
the signor, whose mood of frenzy had
been succeeded by one of fcilent despera
tion, the little black fiddle.
"It fell from the nail," she was saying.
''It was that we heard. It wanted
to come and comfort you, you sec. Is
it good for anything? Can you mend
your own with it? It is so old !"
"Why do you bring me this, my child?"
he asked, sadly, but took it, and rin his
eye over it. Something seemed to strike
him as he did so. He bent his head
quickly, lifted the violiu to his ear and
tapped it and listened, ran his fingers
down its lines, took out his handker
chief and dusted it minutely. His
hands began to shake, he was holding
.his breath; he was comparing the meas-
uremants of the little black fiddle with
certain figures in the memorandum book
drawn from I113 pocket. He peered into
its every dimension in a sort of mad
haste. He took a magnifier, and then
with a bit of chamois leather began
rubbing the end of the littie black fiddle
as if he were polishing a jewel. All at
once he cried out:

Signor Pazzani was playing on the little
black fiddle, and the sweet, .powerful
sonority, the sauvc, silvery, intense tone,
the mellow, but majestic strength, were
ringing in their cars "like the humming
of a swarm of angels' wings," said the
signor, suddenly leaving off with his
bow in the air.

"PHINEAS T. BARNUM,

54 Fbankfort Street,
This was probably in about the year
1830 or 1831, preceding Barnuafs ad vent
in the career of a showman, with "Old
Joyce Heath." He had just been treated
to sharp persecution here in his aatlre
State, for his liberality in matters of
religious belief. Until about 1828 or
1829, it was not competent tor a Uni
vcrsalist to testify in a court of law
here in Connecticut. The Timet battled
for a change in the law, and to good
effect, too; and, in Fairfield county, Mr.
Barnum, with his Herald of Freedom,
did effectire, if somewhat violent, service
in th? same direction, and for his attacc
on Judge Daggett and the court's de
cision, he was arrested and put in the
Danbury Jail, nc served out his sen
tence, and then went to New York,
where, it seems, he set out as the keeper
of a boarding house. A few years later
he conceived the brilliant idea of launch
ing out Into the showman's business,
a career for which nature had more pe
culiarly and )rc-cmmently eniowed him
than any other man, before or since.
He got an old Maryland ncgrcss, took
her to Boston, and had circulated and
read in the Churches an appeal for aid
for her to purchase her freedom she

aunty who had nursed George Washing

ministers went to work to aid the con
tribution, a larger sum than was asked
for was raised, and Barnum's career as
a showman began. His old negro wo
man "drew" like a house on firenot
only in Boston, but all auout the coun
try; antl the success of the scheme led
later to the "woolly horse," and various
other wonders, and finally to the best
traveling thow that this country has ever
seen. Mr. Barnum is unquestionably

It seems as if American readers must
be tired by this time of the ordinary
English society novel, procurable in any
quantity at a cheap rate. It has to do
with a form of social life more conven
tional than our own, with scenery less
grand and attractive, with personalities
more feebly individualized, and with
events and incidents as much less inter
esting than those of American life as
the conditions of English life are more'
artificial than ours. Men may talk as
they choose, or as they believe, abonr
aire as being necessary to the creation of
an atmosphere of romance. We do not
agree with them. A child's apg nf ro
mance is its own childhood. The life it
lives, and the things it sees about it, form
its romantic realm; and the childhood
of a nation is peculiarly its romantic
age, not only to the age which succeeds
