ST. PATRICK'S' DRUM.
The Sunken Rock and tho Legend of
tho Banished Snakes.
There Is an old legend to the effect
Hint St. Patrick banished all reptiles
from Ireland by beating a drum, but
no one probably seriously believes thu
story. According lo the myth, hu took
his drum out for tho purpose mention
ed and commenced pounding it so vig
orously that ho knocked a hole In Uio
drumhead, thus seriously endangering
the auccess of the miracle. While pon
dering what to do St. Patrick was as
tonished by the appearance of an an
gel, who Immediately set to work to
mend the broken musical Instrument.
After the hole had been mended tho
nugel vanished, and St. Patrick con
tinued the work of serpent banishing,
helng successful In ridding tho lslnnd
C every representative of the snake
tribe except one old stayer who had
lived so long that his tusks protruded
from his mouth like horns. This mon
ster refused to leave the "land of his
fathers," and tho good saint resolved to
practice a little piece of strategy. Ho
removed the patch which the nngel had
put on the drumhead and then per
suaded tho serpent to creep Into tho
drum for the night. When the reptllo
had ilono an requested, St. Patrick
glued down the magic patch and then
threw drum, serpent and all Into tho
sea. A sunken bowlder off tho west

the unsettled feeling that things were
not falling out exactly as he had calcu
lated. "What Ih the play like'" he Iinznrded
as lie looked toward his companion. At
all times social trivialities bored him.
Tonight (hoy were Intolerable. He had
come to light, but all at once It seemed
that there was no opponent. Lillian's i
attitude disturbed him; her careless
graelousness, her evident Ignoring of
him for lvalue, might mean nothing,
but also It might mean much.
"It Is a good play." she responded. "I j
like It better than the book. You've
read the book, of course?"
"No." Lotler tried hard to fix his

"Indeed V" lie picked up the pro

Ills ears were strained to catch the

and whispered with Knlne.

"Indeed?" Then again lie lo iked away.
It w.is intolerable, this feeling of be
ing eared up! A sense of anger crept
through his mind. It almost seemed
that Lillian had brought him there to
prove that she had llulshed with him, had
,easl him aside, having used him for the
day's excitement as she had used her
poodles, her Persian eats, her crystal
gny.lii.'. All at once the lmpntency and
uncertainty of his position goaded him.
Turning swiftly In his seat, he glanced
back to where she sat slowly swaying
her fan. her pale, golden hair and her
pale colored gwii delicately silhouetted
against the background of the box.
"What's your Idea of the play. Lil
lian?" he said abruptly. To his own
ears there was a note of challenge hi

It's quite amusing," she said. "It

"Oh, quite." Knlne agreed.
"They mean that It's so very light

Mary Esseltyn explained.

agination was at fault. I thought the
piece was serious."
"SerlousI" Lillian smiled again.
I "Why, whore's your sense of humor?
The motive of the play debars all seri
ousness." Loiler looked down at the pro
gramme still between bis hands.
"What l.s the motive?" he asked.
Lillian waved her fan once or twice,
then closed It softly. "Love Is the
motive," s said.
Now. the balaneing-the adjusting of
Impression and Inspiration Is, of all
processes in life, the most delicately
line. The simple sound of the word
"love" coming at that precise Juncture
changed the whole current of Loder's
thought. It fell like a seed, and like
a seed in ultraproductlve soil, It bore
fruit witli amazing rapidity.
The word Itself was small and the
manner In which It was spoken trivial,
but I .oiler's mind was attracted and
held by It. The last time it bad met
his ears his environment had been
vastly different, and this echo of it In
an uncongenial atmosphere stung him
to resentment. The vision of Eve,
the thought of Eve, became suddenly
"Love?" he repeated coldly. "So
love l.s the motive?"
"Yes." This time It was Kalne who
responded In his methodical, contented
voice. "The motive of the play Is
love, as Lillian Bnys. And when was
love ever serious In a three act com
edyon or off the stago?" He leaned
forward In Ids seat, screwed lit his
eyeglass and lazily scanned the stalls.
Tho orchestra was playing a Hun
garian dance, Its erratic harmonies
and wild alternations of expression
falling abruptly across the pinks and
blues, the gliding nnd lights of tho
pretty, conventional theater. Some
thing In the suggestion of unfitness
appenled to Loder. It was tho force
of the real ns opposed to the Ideal.
With a new expression on his face,
ho turned again to Kalne.
"And how does It work?" he Bald.
"This treatmeut that you tlnd so
French?" Ills voice ns well as his expression
had changed. Ho still spoke quietly.
I but he spoke with Interest. He was
i no longer conscious of his vaguo
, uneasiness; n fresh chord had been
1 struck in his mind, and his curiosity
had responded to It. For the llrst
, time It occurred to him that love tho
dangerous, mysterious garden whose
paths had so suddenly stretched out

to survey the house: then his eyeglass

Kalne glanced at her admiringly.

"You may presume that ho docs see,
"Right! Well, then, as I say, those

Loiler laughed. The newly quickened
Interest was enhanced by treading on
; dangerous ground.
j "Well, they change for n lark, of

orchestra. Loder sat stralghter In his
seat. He was conscious that the blood
had rushed Into his face.
"Oh. Indeed?" he said quickly. "Ono

"Exactly!" Again Kalne chuckled.
