LIBERTY HALL

" Oh, yes, I know all about that," said Mrs. Thayer. " You just think you've got to entertain us! Nothing doing! We invited you here for yourself, not to enjoy your talent. I'd be a fine one to ask you to my home for a rest and then make you perform."
" You're not making me." said Ben. " Honestly I want to play for just five or ten minutes. I've got a tune that I might do something with and I'm anxious to run it over."
" I don't believe you, you naughty man! " said our hostess. " Your wife has told you how wild we are about your music and you're determined to be nice to us. But I'm just as stubborn as you are. Not one note do you play as long as you're our guest! "
Ben favored me with a stricken look, mumbled something about unpacking his suitcase-it was already unpacked-and went up to our room, where he stayed nearly an hour, jotting down his new tune, smoking Jaguar after Jaguar and wishing that black coffee flowed from bathtub faucets.
About a quarter of four Mr. Thayer insisted on taking him around the place and showing him the shrubbery, something that held in Ben's mind a place of equal importance to the grade of wire used in hairpins.
" I'll have to go to business tomorrow," said Mr. Thaver, " and
you will be left to amuse yourself. I thought you might enjoy
this planting more if you knew a little about it. Of course it's
much prettier in the spring of the year."
" I can imagine so."
" You must come over next spring and see it." " I'm usually busy in the spring," said Ben.
" Before we go in," said Mr. Thayer, " I'd like to ask you one question : Do tunes come into your mind and then you write them down, or do you just sit at the piano and improvise until you strike something good ?"
" Sometimes one way and sometimes the other," said Ben.
" That's very interesting," said Mr. Thayer. " I've often wondered how it was done. And another question: Do you write the tunes first and then give them to the men who write the words, or do the men write the words first and then give them to you to make up the music to them? "
" Sometimes one way and sometimes the other," said Ben.
" That's very interesting," said Mr. Thayer. " It's something
