A Love Story.
By AGNE3 G. BROGAN
When father first spoke of bringing
the student to board I was glad. Any
new companionship seemed promising.
But when 1 considered that the stu
dent, being musicai, might uiso be the
possessor o f an uncertain temperament
my troubles appeared to be increasing.
One like father was bad enough in any
family, flying off on the slightest provo
cation into a fit o f temper or, in his
better moods, listening apparently
with an appreciative smile us one re
lated some personal in ident, only to
hud at its conclusion that his mind
had been c gaged with some, beloved
"score." Nora, tbe cook, was my only
comfort, and Nora bad not what one
m i.lit cull an “ understanding" mind.
Father told me his plan one evening
'vlth his ( ustomary tardiness. The stu
dent was to arrive fit 8 o'clock and
the south room to be prepared for bis
di. posal. lie was coming “ free" upon
condition o f exchanging secretary
work for lessons. This alone was a
recommendation to the student’s mu
sk a I ability. Father would receive no
pi nil without promise o f skill. Ex
citedly he named the young man as
“ his discovery." Erie K n o w »son's fu
ture. he said, was assured. So I went
to mother's picture about it. 1 have
a way o f going to mother’s picture in
all my joys and perplexities to receive
udrlee from its soft eyes.
