Kor two months no trace of the fugitive had been months spent in rain effortn to make his chosen career support him; aud now, liw mother had found him out, aud hail taken this way of respecting hit secrecy, and punishing his pride. Next morning the young man awoke with an appetite unknown to' him of late. The generous food of the previous night bad re- stored his system, and brought him to a natural statu. Luckily sufficient wine and bread remained to satisfy his craving, and then he sat down to think. All his efTorle to get his music sung, or played, or publish- ed, had been in rain.

His poul re- pungcd from it, fur >bud parted from her in linger. His mother was a Royalist, he was a republican, and she had said bitter things to him at pining. But most of all, the composer felt one thing; the world would, never he able lu judge him, never bo able to decide if he had or Ind not merit; and this was the bitterest grief nf all.
