hla thoughts from those of tha next,
and only an occasional sigh showing
how doep were hla Inward straggles.
"Meanwhile I worked at my wood
earring In my little cellar ahop, but
never did I become so absorbed la my
saints and bishops as to forget my
other duties of emptying tho pana
that caught the drippings.
"And so oar lives went happily on
until that fatal day when the abbot
decided to make a pllgrimag to
Rome, aad I was selected aa ona of
tho attendants. Oh, tha homesick
ness of It all! The days In tho Alpins
snows, the nights in the hard, kospies
beds, and then Italy, ughl Give mo
my Rhine wine and Keckar and yon
may keep your vintage of Italy. Most
of all, I yearned for Brother Ambrose,
my whole-souled master and friend.
II ow I did long for hia full, round,
blonde body, when surrounded by tho
crafty Latins in the court of his holi
ness. "One night I dreamed of him, yea
often he came into my dreams, but
this waa horrible and real as If I
had aeen it with waking eyes:
"Brother Ambrose was moving
slowly among his casks, nodding to
this one, laying a friendly hand on
that, but when he came to the great
tun ta which we stand, he rubbed hla
cheek against it so affectionately that
I could hear the bristles rasp against
"Presently he searched among the
straw lyln in tho eorner till ho found
a long, perfect tube, and then, climb
ing the. ladder to the top, he took
out the bung and gazing at the bring
ing red liquor aa a worldly man
might gc'.e upon tho woman he
adored. For several mom
squatted thus absorbed, then at
oontonted sigh; he inserted tl i'
and drew unto himself this t i
"I know not how long this lamea,
but gradually the liquor grew lower
in tho eaak and gradually he leaned
over, following It, never once leaving
hold of tho straw. His eyes closed, I
knew that ecstasy was his, and, poor
worm that I am, I envied him. Ho
reeled, ho rolled, but still he followed
the wine downward, ever downward,
till finally the center of gravity was
lost, he slipped, ha smiled, and still
smiling, . slid through the bunghole
"With horror I awoke, and would
have run and told lny dream to the
abbot, but he was a stern man who
looked upon me with disfavor because
I loved not my Latin, so I stayed and
told it to little Francesca, but she
could not advise me iu such matters.
"How the months dragged on in
that hot, weary land! If it had not
been for Francesca I should have
died, between long waiting in ante
chambers and long masses in the
church of St. Teter.
"But after much delay we started
homeward, and with what happiness
did I look from the summit of the
last snow mountain to where the
dark, rolling hills of my own Black
Forest lay beyond the IMiine.
"When the joyous monks welcomed
us nt the gate, I eagerly scanned each
face but that of Brother Ambrose
was not among them. Afraid to ask
questions I disengaged myself from
the curious brothers and ran to his
haunt in the garden and to the cellar,
but no one wos there; only a scrubby
boy emptying the pans, who told me
that the devil had flown off with the
cellar-master, body and soul.
"As I was cuffing his cars, one of
the lay brothers came running and
panted that the abbot wanted to
speak with me, so I followed him into
the refectorium. where the brothers
sat at meat. 'My son,' said the most
excellent father, smiling at me across
the loaded board, 'as our unfortunate
Brother Ambrose has fallen into the
clutches of the evlh one, body, soul
and cellar keys, I appoint you cellar
master fail his place, with this new
bunch to hang at your girdle as a
token. And now, as your first official
act, you may bring us flagons from
tho great cask!'
"So I brought them much wine, and
they sipped it slowly, with the de
liberation of the true connoisseur.
"Finally, quoth "the brother at tho
abbot's left, 'Brother Cellar-Master,
