When Wo Were All Tenors.
The primitive inihabitant s of' .Erope
were all tenors. Their de4cenamti4 or
the present 1i:ne are Inritones. ai rim
ture generations will have seminaIss
voices. The voice hs a tendency to
deepen with age. The tenor of t wenty
becomes the baritone of twenty-eight
and the bass of thirty-six. The inferior
races have higher pitched voices than
the more cultured. The negro lis a
higher voice than the white man.

darker skinned brother. The former is
usually a baritone or a tenor, the lat
ter a contralto or bass. It is asserted
that tehors are usually of slender
build, whereas basses are stout, but
there are too many exceptions to such
a rule for it to be reliable. The same
remark applies to the statement that
thoughtful men have deep toned voices,
and vice versa. The tones of a voice
are perceptibly higher before than aft
er a meal, for which reason tenors a-re
generally careful not to sing too'soon
after dinner.-Pearson's Weekly.
