MUSIC l3rainard says of iylusicz "Cod is its author, and not many he laid the keynote of all harmoniesg he planned all perfect combinations, and he made us so that we can hear and understand." Music in itself is universal and so should be the love for it. Chief Detective Burns once said, in an address before the sheriffs, chiefs of police, and detectives of the United States, this pertinent fact: "Show me a city with music in its homes, music ill its schools, and music in its parks, and I will show you a city with a minimum of crime." Strange words from a thief-catcher! Plato said: "lVhen depression, discord. disappointment, and havoc seem to disturb tl1e harmony of a people: when everything else has apparently failed, resort to music, for, where there is music, there is harmony, and discord has no place." The art of a nation is a much truer index to its character. Music is a means of culture. It is one of the greatest and perhaps the greatest factor in civilization. Not until men shall use the art with tl1e spirit of reverence will it exercise those powers for which it is designed. The present generation of philosophers and teachers are only beginning to search for the real meaning and CXPlill'lZll'lO11 of the art. and they have not advanced sulhciently to answer even these simple questions, What Is Music? Wherein consists its great power? Confucius, 500 years before Christi, said : "Music, sacred tongue of God, I hear thee calling and J. come." The steady growth of public appreciation and demand for good music in America is probably unique in the history of the world's civilization. The United States, like all other new countries. has been so extremely occupied in "finding itself" in business and pioneering, that it is only within the last few years that the people have fOUllCl time for the line arts. More particularly may this be applied to the whole country. with the exception of a very few art centers. Conditions and special privileges, flllil the fast growing wealth of this country, have enabled us to hear not only the best artists and composers in this country, but the best of the world's artists as well as the most notable musical compositions, properly performed, under even more elaborate auspices than have generally obtained upon their pre- sentation in liurope. Music has power because it is beautiful, and people learn to appreciate it by hearing it. This appreciation can be much aided by a sympathetic pointing out of the vital fact that it is good because it sounds well, and was written to be enjoyed. Music is not beautiful because it is mathematically accurate, but because it brings to us images of beauty that stimulate the senses in us, to which beauty appeals. So we should learn to listen to music, that we may open our ears and the senses of the charms of the tonal world. L. E. BEHvM121z.

Before the days of radio broadcasts good music for most people was apt to be a rare treat, but now by careful selection 'we can enjoy really fine programs at almost any hour of the day. May 'we form the habit of listening only to the best. ROBT. A. THOMPSON.
