Howard Fielding Talks with Several of the Illustrious Dead Who Lay Clulm to » Very Bad Tune—Meditation** in a Gruve-Yard. [COPT1UGHT, 1SD1.1 Schiedam, a suburb of New York, boasts of being a very lively town, anc of possessing a cemetery containing 1 some of the deadest men in these parts, if seniority of decease counts for any thing. I have some relatives in Schiedam; two maiden aunts, not quite' so »ld as the cemetery, but very interesting- relics for all that. They promisee to make a pleasant little 'party for us id we would come ap for an evening. We, of course, meant Maude and myself.- We took a vote on the invitation and decided not to attend the festivities in a body. It was thought more advisable to send a small sub-committee, consisting of myself, to represent our household. As my relatives had intimated that thej- would have some of the girls at the house, and play games, I did not object to be'ing a sub-committee. I don't propose to dwell on this party, The "girls" were pirls when my aunts were, and they haven't been since, which is a great many years, now. We didn't play Copenhagen or post-office— we amused ourselves more intellectually, I escorted one of the girls to her home far, far away on the other side of the grave-yard. It was three miles if we went around the cemetery and only a mile and a half if we went through <it, but my companion was a timid young thing and insisted on the long road. But after I had seen her to her venerable doorstep 1 needed something to cheer me up, so I took the short cut. I speak of the nature of my entertainment on that evening in order_ to convince the reader that my experience in the Tombs—I should say among the tombs—was not the creation of a mind unbalanced by dissipation. Not a man there was calmer than I. As a proof of this I mention the fact that I whistled a popular song, entitled "Willie B-eilly's White Shirt," as I climbed the grave-yard fence. I had caught the tune in New York, and had long waited an opportunity to whistle it in a solitude that would conceal my degradation. For it was such a bad & \ FIELDING -ALONE WITn THJB SOXS. tune; so shamelessly suggestive of every other bad tune; so offensive to a sensitive . ear;,, in short such a thoroughly typical popular song- that I liae felt guilty when I carried the remembrance of it home with me. And yet I couldn't shake it off. • It had clung to me for days; my mouth had been perpetually in a pucker with it, and every night the silent whistle in my brain 'had 1 lulled me to sleep with "Willie Reilly's White Shirt." "Young man," said a voice at my elbow, "where did you get that tune?" I turned hastily with a cold feeling in my spine, and saw ^ tall, thin man leaning over his own grave-stone. By the dim -moonlight I discerned that it had been erected to the memory of .Edgar Smith in 1865. "I beg your pardon," said I. "If I had any idea it would disturb you—" "Oh! never mind," replied the ghost. "I suppose you intended to be complimentary."- • "Complimentary?" "Yes; in life I was reputed to have written that tune. It was a .popular war melody and went by the name of 'Johnny Griffin's Retreat.' I had supposed that it was forgotten." "You must be mistaken," I replied; this is 'Willie Eeilly's White Shirt,' and was perpetrated- by C. A. Jenkins. Perhaps I didn't whistle it correctly." "Oh! yes you did, near enough," said the ghost. "It went this -way," and he finished the' air from the point where he had interrupted me. "That's it," I admitted, "and I eon-' sider your claim established. But may I ask—I don't want to be offensive, you know—may I inquire what was done about it when you arrived—that is, did they make it very hot for you on account of this thing?" "No; my claim to its authorship was not allowed, and I escaped. Between you and me, I didn't compose it; I just hashed it 1 up in a hurry out of, one or two old things." "Well,.I wish you'd let it rest, that's all," said I, somewhat harshly. "Peri>s, if you had, it might'hot have arisen in my day." , 'I wish I - had," , he groaned; "it aaunts me even now. Oh, remorse, remorse!" He ran his fingers wildly through his lair and then beat. his head upon the £rave-stone. ' "Is there any thing 1 1 eando for you?" i asked, sympathizing with his -dis-. ;ress, though I couldn't help -thinking that it was no more than he deserved. "No, no; take it away, that's all:" I took it aw.ay. Even after this fear- ill warning I couldn't keep it out of my head, and before I had gone twenty :.jfa(tes rrom tlie spot 1. was" whistling 1 l again. "Say, my friend," said n voice on right, "did that fellow .Smith tell you he comnosofl tiv.it sonn"?" "No. he didn't," said I, confronting this second specter boldty, "be confessed that he stole it." "Probably he knsw that you woulc meet me," continued the ghost; "I'm the man he stole it from. My name is Cyrus J. Perkins, and I.was buried be fore Smith was born. Look at my date, 1S19. I composed that song—" He TTas interrupted by • a deep groan which proceeded from a somewhat older portion, of the cemetery. The groan was followed by a voice: "Perkins, why will you pervert the facts in this shameful manner. -You know that you stole that song frcm a revolutionary ballad composed by me and called 'General Clinton's White FIKI.DING AND THE Sl'OOK AUTHORS. Horse.' My young friend, if you wanl to go into the archeology of that song, just ascribe its authorship 'to Levi C. Whitcomb, originally of Connecticut." "When were you buried, Whitcomb?" inquired a specter whom I perceived looking'down at us from a sparsely populated district up near the brow the hill. The V9ice had a slightly foreign accent which suggested sunny Italy. "Seventeen eighty-one," ' answered Whitcorob, shortly. "Fifty years before that date," sale the voice, "I was assassinated by a mob because I played that tune on a hand or^an which 1 did not know contained any thing calculated to offend. Believe me, sir; I am the Count Beppo Spermaceti." ' "Go back to your cage, old whale oil," said \Vhitcorab, sternly; "you are trying to ruin my reputation." "And furthermore," continued Count Beppo, "there is a lady of my country in tiie third walk to the left who was a member of an operatic chorus and died in 1739. She remembers that song in her youth; in her youth, mind you!" I looked at Whitcomb and be melted away into thin mist, taking his pretensions with him. "I .am gratified to ^Kave the Count Beppo Spermaceti substantiate my claim." The words were spoken in Dutch of a somewhat antique pattern, but, on the whole, goo3 enough Dutch for a ghost. The speaker stood looking at me over the gravestone of Peter Yollis, who died in 1629. Of course it was not the original gravestone; it was a comparatively new one erected by the later Yollises. But it was the same old Peter; there was no mistaking his antiquity. "The late Mynheer Yollis," said I, respectfully, "will pardon me for presuming while still living (and on a small salary at that) to address the distinguished dead, but if the lady to whom the Count Beppo refers heard the song in her youth it must have been passed in Italy, or considering her profession perhaps I should say .Latium." "Exactly, my friend," said Yollis, interrupting; "I composed the song while there, before coming to this country. It was republished here, and I dedicated it to Eendrick Hodson. Of course I didn't care a—well, we will say a dike, which means much the same thing. Of course I didn't care a dike for Hen- I KEFRJUNED FROM BUTTNS THE SONG NEXT MORS1XG. drick, but I thought his name wovfld help sell the song-, you understand." * "Yes," I admitted, "the same^thiug is done to-day." . "I .was accused, sir—falsely accused of stealing- the melody, but it • was wholly and entirely original with me." 'Strange," said -I, musing-,. "that is just what Mr. C. A. Jenkins says." I climbed the graveyard wall in a meditative mood. Something 1 in my experience with the departed had cured me of that song; and when in New York the next morning-1 heard a man shout in my ear: ' 'All the latest songs of tfie day—'Waiie Eeilly's White Shirt;'" etc., I was able to restrain my desire for a copy.

Prince Albert, like Sir Alexander Coekburn, was always pleased to see, a cold sirloin of roas beef on the side board, and the Queen has throughout her life shown a market preference for simple fare. Prince Albert and the late Duke of Cambridg-i greatly liked the good old-fashionei dish, a sucking 1 pig, served with pruni sauce. There have been "dine and sleep : visitors at "Windsor Castle every da; during the Queen's residence there, bu the list of people to be asked (exclusive of the royal, official and diplomatic guests) is so long that there .will ha veto be another succession during .her Majesty's next sojourn there in order to clear it oft'. The invitations are usually sent om by S r John Cowell (often by telegram) and as a rule only a few hours' notice is given. The guests are expected to arrive in time to dress for dinner, and they leave after breakfast the nex' morning. The rule is for guests to appear in the corridor in full dress at 8:30, the dinner hour being S:45: and the Queen comes in from her own apartments just as the clocks chime the quarter, bows to the company, and proceeds into the oak room, where dinner is served. After it is over the company usually stand about the corridor, or proceed'in- to one of the three drawing rooms which adjoin it; the Queen speaks for a few moments to. each person in succession and then retires, and the guests see her no more, as she never appears in the morning; so that a visit to the Castle does not involve much persona) intercourse with her Majesty. After the Qiieen has gone to her room the company remain in one of the drawing rooms for music and. whist; anc when the ladies retire the "men adjourn to the smoking room, in which there is a billiard table.—London-World. —Ten Minutes for Refreshments.— Mr. Newly-—"I've brought you a glass of milk, dear."
