whimpered, "O, Kate's always liko this

The little girl had slipped quietly in
and now the guests were shaking hands
with the children and making them com
pliments. They received them with
quiet indifference, only smiling when
courtesy seemed to require it.
"Now Adrienne. get the handkerchief
case the Princess of Wales made for you
herself and show it to the ladies."
"I think they are all there on tho man
tle, mamma," replied the child quietly.
'So they are. And here, Mr. Macken
zie, is Jean de Reszke's photograph that
he gave Adrienna with the inscription,
'To the Juliette of tho future from an
old Romeo.' Prettily worded, isn't it?
And here is the jewelled miniture of
Malibran that tho Duke of Orleans gavo
her, and tho opera glasses from Madamo
Marchesi. And there is the portrait of
her husband that Frau Cosima Wagner
gave Hermann. Of course he doesn't
sing Wagnerian music yet, but ca ira,
ca ira, as Madame used to say."
After examining trinkets enough to
stock a small museum, Mackenzie said
"Aren't you just a little afraid of all
this notoriety for them at their age? It
seems as if there will be nMhing left for
Ho saw at once that ho had touched a
delicate subject and sho threw herself
on the defensive. "No, Mr. Mackenzie,
I am afraid of nothing that will spur
them to their work or make them feel
the importance and weight of their art.
Remember the age at which Patti be
gan.'' Mackenzie glanced at tho two frail
figures and ventured further. "That's
just it, the wrght of it. The shoulders
are young to bear it all, I'm thinking.
Aren't you sometimes afraid it will ex
haust them physically?''
"O, they are never ill, and," with her
superior smile, "in their art ono cannot
begin toi toon. Itie the work of a lite
time, you know, a lifelong consecration.
I do not feel that I have any right to
curb them or to stop the flight of Pe

was thinking of the mother in a certain
novel of Daudet's who refused to risk
her son's lire for a throne. Mrs. Massey
ehot across tho room to show the
rotund gentleman those trophies which
were perhaps given sd lightly, but were
in her eyes precious beyond price.
Mackenzie saw the children slip
through the portiere into .he library
and determined to follow thorn and dis

were fay or human. They were stand

of children who were playing in theou'

"It would be no uso to a?k, Hermann.

times though. Perhaps tbat's why they
are eo common, i'oit psople stem to

"I suppcs3 so. We never get to b
any thing nice. John Hamilton has a
new pair of skates and gos down on
the ica in the park every day. I think I
might learn to skats anyhow.''
"But you'd never get time to skitc if
you did learn. We haven't time b kfep

"O bother our Italian! Ad, I m just

They followed him passively, like
children who were accustomed to doicg
what they were taid. Ho sat down ad

his arm around the by. He felt so
sorry for them, thesa poor little prodi
