Her before her on a a plump of bulrushes or. Alleyne turned it toward her and said a a Juliet do you remember the Bull a she had been sitting by till then silent enough with her face half averted and her Cheek resting on her hand but the Flash of mirth came on the instant lightning Over every Fea Ture. _ a a shall i Ever forget the Bull or you a she replied a for the tragical end of the sketching umbrella a and then or. Alleyne laughed too and told them How he had been besieged by a Bull while peacefully sketching his own punt from the opposite Side of the River and How being unable to get at the punt and unable to swim he had contrived to clamber up a tree while the Bull made War a out Rance on the sketching umbrella. A i never remember that adventure a said he a without marvelling at my own a a if you could but have seen yourself papa As i saw you when i came to Row you Back a said miss Alleyne a a perched in the tree like some strange Bird brooding Over the ruins of the umbrella 1�?� a if you could but have seen the Bull my love defying it bellowing at it stalking round it Goring it tossing it trampling upon it it was a sight for Landseer. He was a magnanimous Bull however to give him his due. He respected the Fine arts and spared my a and this happened lately on the Wye a said Debenham asking the question for the Sake of saying something. A to no it happened at a Little place in Hertfordshire where we spent a few Days in the Spring. Do you know the neighbourhood of Berk Hampstead a the Young Man Shook his head. A Siam quite a stranger in England a he relied. A i left it when a child and Only came ack some eighteen months p a then you have travelled a great Deal a a no we were always at Zolle Strasse. I was educated or. Alleyne had heard of Zollen Strasser had passe once within a few Miles of the Iron tier had known some one who afterwards be smiled he thought her More bewitching than before and longed to make her smile again. Then the conversation4 drifted into More serious channels. Zolle Strasse led somehow to Munich and then they talked of German music and poetry of Goethe and the wonderful Weimar period of Wagner and King Ludwig of Bavaria. A was for Carl August a said or. Alleyne a the has been so effaced by Goethe that the world has scarcely done him full Justice. He was almost a great a must he not have been quite great so to appreciate greatness a said miss Alleyne. A the was certainly a magnanimous Man a said Debenham a for Goethe with his olympian airs his pomposity and his infinite egotism must have been a difficult person to Deal with. Merely to have been the Friend of such a Man and to have maintained that Friendship unimpaired without loss of dignity throughout a period of fifty five years augurs a High degree of a it was an unequal Friendship too a observed miss Alleyne. A and unequal friendships Are As full of Shoals and Quicksand As unequal marriages a said emr. Alleyne sententious by. My Wah unequal in a manner particularly eng to the Duke a said Debenham a for All the rank was on his Side and All the Fame on a yet the Duke must have been an Able Man a said miss Alleyne. A the Duke was a very Able Man a replied her father a but he was Able As a statesman and reformer so that his Field of operation being Small his abilities went for nothing in the eyes of the world. He must have Felt this and chafed under it for after All it is not pleasant to be obliterated even by the friends we love a was or. Blyth also a Zolle Strasse student a asked the Young lady thinking perhaps that poor Archie was undergoing that very process of obliteration and kindly trying to give him some share in the conversation. It the Man Tel piece. She closed it when they a came in and received them courteously. Or. Alleyne then tasted the Tea pronounced it undrinkable rang for a fresh Supply produced a portfolio of a sketches and made his huh Phi guests at Home in a few moments. Archie painfully conscious of his clump sol de boots sat on the Edge of his chair silent and shy lamenting the gorgeous shirt fronts and resplendent waistcoats that he had left at Home in his London lodgings. Debenham feigning to be absorbed in the sketches saw Only miss Alleyne. He though the had never beheld so Dainty a creature. He scarcely dared to look at her and yet he could not keep his eyes away. She was Small very Small exquisitely proportioned dark haired dark eyed with the slender est Throat the tiniest hands the sweetest Mouth imaginable. Her eyes were Large Lustrous a Chang fully As the winds or seas a her complexion of that pure glowing transparent Olive which the French describe As the Meridional and which when Pale is the most pathetic and when flushed the most Radiant in the world. But it was neither to the Lustre of her eyes nor the splendor of her skin nor the supple Grace of her figure that miss Alleyne owed the Charm of her Beauty. It was to her smile. That smile was magical. Taken in repose the face wore a thoughtful expression that bordered upon melancholy a but the smile transformed it illuminated it flooded it like sudden Sunshine. A Debenham saw it for the first time before he had been half an hour in her presence and it was one of her fathers sketches that called it Forth. Taking the drawing from the Folio a River scene with Flat Low batiks a line of Pollard Willows and a punt moored against a speary professor ing More freely and As came a them to _ in his airy Way asked a multiplicity of questions it was not Long before Debenham had been led into an unwonted degree of expansiveness telling his name and his profession and even drawing in some half dozen sentences a sarcastic sketch of the grand Ducal court and the formal life of that self important Little capital. He described a court Day at the Resi Denzy the Washerwoman bringing Home the ladies flounced petticoats dangling from Long poles As if they were some kind of portentous fish just caught the lord High chamber lain in his Nan keen morning coat trotting Home bareheaded from Kopf the Barbera a not daring to put on his hat for fear of disturbing the hair powder the six tall Cuirass ers who were regularly selected from the Corpa de Garde and transformed into footmen for the Day to swell the somewhat scanty pomp of the grand Ducal establishment the old yellow Chariot from the hotel Des Rois which All Zolle Strasse wanted to hire at the same moment and which was to be seen in every part of the town at once throughout the afternoon the gentlemen who had walked dusting their pumps and shaking out their ruffles in the in trance Hall of the Palace the Baroness von Schlitte and the Baroness von Pfeffer squabbling for precedence in the Ante room the grand Duke yawned behind the plume of his cocked hat a the grand Duchess scolding the princesses for tittering a the gentlemen Ushers and the Gold Sticks in waiting cutting jokes on the sly the dust the fuss the flutter the Bustle that pervaded the whole town from seven Lin the morning till five in the afternoon and the Relief it was to every one concerned when Chi up at the old Schloss gave notice that ssi Dence Era Tes were about to be closed Archie blushed up to the eyes. He a i a he stammered. A to no. I was at this set i merchant but in be been in Germany. Alleyne in be been up the a he the one place in Germany that i have now any special desire to visit is Munich a said the artist. A Vienna and Dresden i know by heart but the treasures of the Pina Cothey i have yet to see. I should not wish to die without hav the the technical gtd the reception was Over. Ail this he told and told it with humor for is8 Alleyne though still sitting somewhat it Art. Listened and smiled and each time she ing seen Titian so presentation in the a a and i would give the world to hear Tann Hauser and see Herr Wagner a said his daughter. A emr. Debenham has no doubt done both and can give us every but Debenham had never been in Munich nor though the music of it was familiar to him heard Tannhauser performed. He had however seen not Only Herr Wagner but his eccentric Friend and Patron the sex King of Bavaria both having been present at one of the great Zolle Strasse festivals some three years before. A a on which occasion a said he a a a symphony of Herr Wagner a was performed by the orchestra of the Academy and a More crabbed distort and singular composition i never took part in before or since. Yet there were wild wonderful fragments of Melody cropping up throughout it in All sorts of unexpected places often quite lost to sight buried in the heart of the score like diamonds in a Block of Quartz and Only discoverable by an adept. I remember one Little passage of about four bars played by the oboe a delicate airy exquisite flight of notes that haunted me for weeks after but it was imbedded in a crash of other instruments and probably not a soul among the audience unless it were King Ludwig even suspected its i it a a a then there May really be a soul of Beauty in things discordant a said miss Alleyne amiling. A a in Wagner a music yes but Yon must be an analyst to find it a a. Is King Ludwig an analyst a i a 1 f f it a 1 a if it w Pmj a k i a it a a a a of or it 4 a it it # it a by a King Ludwig is not a Pericles nor even a second Carl August but he has a real knowledge and real love of replied Debenham. A a whether he is an analyst in the sense i can not say but he has insight and it needs insight to Pierce the rough and sometimes grotesque ii Usk in which Wagner chooses to swathe his musical ideas. He has As Rich a vein of Mere Melody As other composers but he values it less and employs it differently. His whole career we must remember is a re action against the school of melodies tsp his every composition a protest against Bellini and the followers of Bellini. Like All re a zionists however he pushes Bis theory too far. He is not Content to deny that Melody is of Paramount importance in music. He is not Content to establish Melody and Harmony on a footing of Quality. He insists on degrading Melody m uses it As a Mere accessory As the cheapest of accessories and lavishes it just where it i least observed and least a a like the count of Monte Christo who wore no jewels but caused a priceless Emerald to be hollowed out to make a Box for his opium lozenges a said miss Alleyne. A a or. Debenham is the first admirer of Wagner whom i have had the pleasure of conversing with a observed the artist. A a Pardon me a replied Debenham. A a i do not class myself with Herr Wagner a admirers. I recognize his Talent but i entirely disapprove of his style. I hold that Beauty is the end of Arl As truth is the end of science and i can not but regard music from which Melody is banished or in which Melody is so far obscured As to by virtually banished As essentially i artistic. Still the composer of Tannhauser is a Man of a a and a a of he is startlingly original. There is but one j a and Ludwig of Bavaria is his Robett we painters however have no right to poke our fun at the sex King. No living Sovereign has done so much for contemporary a a Why then deny him the title of a second Carl August a asked miss Alleyne. A a Goethe a Duke Fey love always kept up his personal dignity. He never said or did any thing to make himself absurd in the eyes of the world but King Ludwig in a Well suppose we say impulsive and Hie impulsiveness has led him into Many follies. His quarrels and reconciliations with Herr Wagner alone Are notoriously a a still if he has so much taste and cultivation if he is such a Liberal Patron of Tab arts it tit i fear even to that he will not Bear comparison with so Noble and steadfast a Man As Carl August a said Debenham. A a or at Best we must regard him As a Mere whimsical erratic half pathetic half ludicrous imitation like the Jester at the funeral pageant of a roman emperor whose office it was to strut in the Robes and mimic the bearing of 4 Imperial Cesar dead and turned to Clay. A a and your own grand Duke he of Zollen Strasser is he musical a asked or. Alleyne. A a he partakes of the nature of the Academy a replied Debenham laughingly. A a he is a Little of every thing. He paints a Little composes a Little models a Little handles a lathe As dexterously As a Bow and turns a tune or a Needle Case with equal facility. I Hope you do not imply that y derail studies at Zolle Strasse Are Condi our Aca acted on Ith this difference a each student learns a great Deal of something and a Little of every 1 a a and you i suppose Learned a great Deal of music and a Little of the Fine arts.
