Miss Meadows, a teacher of song, in cap and with a little baton during a lesson with some girls, receives a letter from her boyfriend who doesn't want to get married. She shows her emotions through the songs that she teaches to her class: she is sad and doesn’t feel the yellow chrysanthemum like usually. Every note was a sigh, a sob, a groan of awful mournfulness Then Miss Wyatt gives a telegram to Miss Meadows in which it’s said that Basil has tried the suicide. Miss Wyatt asks if it was something of seriousness, but she says that was of her boyfriend. Miss affirms that doesn’t approve telegrams if not for serious news like in case of death.
