DAEK AGES OF MUSIC.
PERSECUT40N IN THE FOURTEENTH
AND FIFTEENTH CENTURIES.
Churcli and State "Were Against Musi
cians Laws That TVero Mere Mock
eries of Justice It "Was Considered Dis
grace to Be a Musician's Child.
The Fourteenth-and Fifteenth centuries
were anything bdfc halcyon days for the
mediawal mombers of tho secular musical
profession. Everything which both church
and state could do to persecute them and
their art was unhesitatingly done, and in
the eyes of both civil and ecclesiastical law
they wera regarded as hopeless pariahs.
This, however, must be understood as re
ferring to the church 'and "estate as bodies;
the strolling players had many powerful
protectors among both prelates and nobles
individually, who sought constantly to im
prove their position and standing in the
eyes of the law, but with slow success.
Thus it often happened that some laughter
loving noble, after a merry nijjht of wine
and song, would bo obliged next morning
for some triUhis and,gonerally trumped up
offense to sit in judgment over tho very
players who tho night before had been most
welcome and honored guests, and whatever
his inclination might be, the law would re
quire him to impose ridiculous and unjust
BASKED OUT OF THE CHUUCH.
Tho church declared them, as a body,
"excom municate and without ecclesiastical
rights," while they ware even worse treated
by the civil authorities. Special laws were
devised for them which were simple mock
eries of justice. Foroxampio, if a "player"
was wounded by a "respectable man," the
law decreed that both should go to some
public place, and the aggressor should so
stand in the sunlight that his shadow
fell against the wail, whereupon the player
was permitted to give tho shadow n sim
ilar blow to that he had received with a
similar weapon, and the law was satisfied.
This shameful custom existed in both Sax
ony and Bavaria until well along in the
Fifteenth century, while in north Germany
tho law was oven more contemptuous in
its provisions, and if a player was mur
dered tho following ridiculous, farce was
gravely performed in tho presence of a
multitude of people assembled in the mar
The murderer presented himself before
tho officers of justice with a young calf
and a pair of greased gloves. The latter
were put on by the next kin to the mur
dered man, and if ho then were able to hold
the calf by the tail he would keep the calf;
but in any caso it was considered that jus
tice had been done and the proper atone
ment offered. In Suabia a player could
not inherit property, and what he left at
his death reverted to tho state, and in 1287
all strolling musicians were expressly ex
cluded from the general peace declared by
King Rudolph I.
During thowhole of the Fifteenth century
tho following sentence occurs as part of
the formula of baptismal certificates:
"This child was born of honorable and re
spectable parents, who have lived honestly
and circumspectly, and it is not tho off
spring of pipers, fiddlers, players, dancers,
shepherds, linen weavers or any such
worthless vagabonds." Still later, in 1537,
wo find tho following unique sentence in a
Saxon law book: "These pipers, fiddlers
and players are in no wise to be considered
as human beings, for they have only the
outward appearance of humanity; they are
rather to bo treated as dead persons."
As a partial offset to all this injustice
and maltreatment the players gradually
formed themselves into societies for the
purpose of personal intercourse, as well as
financial and artistic consolidation. In
Franco tho "Guild of Minstrels and Jug
glers" had been formed in the latter half
of the Thirteenth century, and in 1295
Philip le Beau appointed Jean Charmillon
to bo "Rex ministelorum" or "Roy des
Monestriers." All the dhTorent societies
in France were consolidated in 1330 under
tho title, "ConfrariQ do St. Julien des Meu
estiiers," and on Nov. 23, 1831, they re
ceived a legal charter. In Germany the
earliest of these societies was the "St.
Nicolai Bruderschaft," formed in 12SS in
Vionnrt. These guilds and societies became
more and more important, and though, as
aforesaid they had no ecclesiastical and
few civil rights, they were fostered and
protected by many individual princes and
noblc3. Aj attempt wa3 made in 14C1 to
free them from, tho ban of the church, but
It was not successful until 14S8, when they
were officially released by the cardinal
legato of all Germany. It would occupy
too much space to apeak'at greater length
of tho societies, but it is certainly worthy
of mention that by the beginning of the
Sixteenth century all players were obliged
to belong to them on pain of fine or other
punishment, which seems to be an inter
esting forerunner of the tactics pursued by
many of oux modern labor organizations.
IMTOIVrAZkOS or music recognized.
Whilo the playors were thus endeavor
ing to help themselves many powerful
people were also trying to improve their
position. It must bo borno in mind that,
ir spite of all tho contempt and abuse to
which they were subjected, their services
were still mora or less indispensable.
Realizing this fact, some of the larger
cities considered ika worthy experiment to
attempt their reform, and thoy sought to
effect this by selecting the best of them and
paying them a regular yearly salary for
their sorvices in tho city, which induced
tho players so chosen to give up their wan
dering and dissipated iubits. This plan
was to a great extent successful, and by
the beginning of the Fifteenth century
nearly all tho imperial cities, and many of
the free cities, had a regularly engageif,
company of " pipers and fiddlers" (more
especially, however, luto players), and
their contracts compelled them to play
openly, at certain times and places, for the
amusement of tho public Thus we sea
the great antiquity of the system of sub
sidizing musical institutions in Germany;
500 years ago the state realized tho impor
tance of providing artistic amusement and
instruction for the benefit of its citizens.
This was the beginning of a systematic
pursuit and protection of instrumental
music, and early in tho Fifteenth century
the custom spread from the cities to tha
courts of the hisher nobility of both church
and state. Ono of the chronicles relates
that there came to tho council of Con
stance (1414) "trombonists, trumpeters, pip
ers, singeis and fiddlers, in short, all man
ner of players, in all about 500," and it ap
pears thst the greater part of those were in
attendance upon differeut cardinals, bish
ops, princes?, counts and barons, and regu
larly attached to their courts. Little by
little their various claims were recognized
and granted and thsmr general position im
proved, an by the middle of the Sixteenth
century it may he broadly stated that theii
importance as artists was fully acknow
edged and their profession regarded as hov
arable. Boston Herald
FIVE MILES HIGH ON A TRAPEZE.
AdToatnrcs of o Parachuta 2ECan TThoM
Parachute Got Away frosi Kim.
Great excitement was caused at Croydon
in connection with tho ascant from the old
fair field of Professor ffigsrins, the para
chutist, and for several hours doubts were
entertained as. to his safety. The balloon,
which had been named "The Duke's
Motto," and was of the capacity of
12,000 cubic fcf t, was fully charged "by f
o'clock. Biggins said thodirccuDajOf the
wine, which was northeast, would ncces
"But he hoped to return to thefleianaDom;
Jmlf an ho ur. When he gave tho signal to
the attendants to "Let go," tho machine
gradually rose, and appeared to go in the
direction of Norwood- Upon reaching an
altitude of something like 4,000 feet, the
parachute became detached from the net a
the balloon, which was evidentlyproceed
ingupwardat agreatrate, as the parachute
was fully expanded, although inverted- It
was now evident that; something was
wrong with the apparatus, and, amid
breathless excitement, the parachute
dropped fronrbe balloon and fell into a
garden in East Croydon. The fcaBoon rap
idly disappeared in the clouds. When
darkness set in and no news had been
received of tho parachutist much anxiety
was evinced as to his fate: Shortly after 8
o'clock, however, all fear was dispelled by
the receipt of a telegram, slatihg'thnt Hig
gins had landed safely near Ttm&ridge.
Higgins and his balloon arrived at East
Croydon by the 9:20 train.
In an interview with a correspondent
Higgins stated that he had experienced the
most wonderful of all' his aerial voyages
When he had-reaehed the height of 4,000
feet he began to get into a strong-current,
and the balloon twisted right round. The
current then caught his parachute, causing
the wooden ring of it to catch him -very
tightly under the arm3. The test? .cord
which held the parachute then bralcc.
Directly that happened he saw that be
parachute was hanging bdlDwhim fully in
flated, and the pressure on him was so great
that it was impossible for him to descend
into the middle of the town with any
thing like safety. Ho therefore opened ins
penknife with his teeth and cut the para
chute away. This caused the balloon to
shoot up 0,000 feet higher, and ,on reaching
that altitude he met another current, which
brought him back, and he saw nothing
until ho passed through some sleet and
snow. He could hear, however, the sound
All of a sudden he found himself in dark
ness, caused, he presumed, by the -snow and
the thick atmosphere. Ho was in this
snow storm for at least ten minutes, and
when he had passed through it the sun was
shining beautifully. Below him he could
see what appeared to bo snowy mountains
rising up and down for miles. He could
see a distance of some forty clear miles, and
was able to discern tho sun glistening on
tho water at Brighton. It was evident to
him that he was going toward Tunbridge
Wells. He found the air getting very sharp
and keen; icicles were hanging from his
mustache, and he had no sooner rubbed
them off than others formed. For a few
minutes ho was quite deaf. Ho now seemed
to be descending on the mountains of snow,
and he thought he was getting near Hast
ings or Brighton. He could smell the sea.
Thinking he was coming down, he took
hold of four of his guy ropes, and pulled
the balloon partly over on ono "Side to allow
the gas to escape at the mouth.
Tho balloon then turned round three
times, and he felt he was descending. He
did nothing more to tho balloon, merely
sitting on his trapeze watching for terra
firma, which ho did not see for some time.
At length he saw plowed fields, and close
by there was what he took to be a large
park, with white roads across it. He then
traveled about five or six miles at a very
rapid pace, and saw more plowed fields,
which he thought would be a suitable place
to land on. "When ho was about 2,000 feet
front the earth he prepared to descend by
hanging by one arm to his trapeze rope as
if ho were using his parachute. When his
feet touched the ground the balloon, which
was in front of him, dragged him for ten
yards, and then rebounded somo sixty feet
in tho air, between two tress. Two labor
ers ran from opposite directions, and, in
responso to his signals, they arrived just as
he camo down a seoond time, and held the
balloon until ho let out the gas. He found
that he had landed on a farm in the occu
pation of Mr. Nash, of Pcnhurst, about
thirty miles from Croydon. In reply to
questions, ho said that at ono time he must
have been five miles above tha earth, the
highest he had ever been. He added that
the' balloon had no escape valve. London

Once upon a time the Queen of all the
"Flours, whose name was Imperial, gave
a luncheon to her subjects. When all
were seated at the banquet table some of
the "low grades" became envious of the
queen's charms and popularity and cried
out "We are as good as Imperial." The
royal court messenger, Prince Tallv-IIo,
arrived at that moment in his coach and
proclaimed the verdict of the people: "Im
perial is supreme. Long live Imperial."
Then the low bread rebels made rye faces
and said "Our cake is dough; we knead no
more. Long live Imperial.' 15 tf
