MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS.
-In our last article on the above
subject we finished by saying that
the most happy results have not fol
lowed from the teaching of music in
our schools. The Board of Educa
tion did all they possibly could by
appointing a competent teacher
Everything went well for a time
untilj the teacher absented himself J.
and then commenced a feeling of
disinterestedness on the part of the
pupils. After a time it was taken
up again, but the same result oc
curred, and for a time the schools
were without a teacher. Another
lias been obtained, but as it, is en
tirely out of his line, which he good
naturedly owns, we have nothing to
sa3r. One thing, he is very punctual,
and that is a great deal. What is
really wanted here to make a. success
of music iu our schools is a lirst
class teacher. Further, that the
Board of Education shall make it
on the part of all
meet once a week and
receive instruction from the regular
teacher, thus preparing them to
carry on his work without interrup
tion, in case of necessary absence.
There arc very few of our teachers
who know anything of music. Mar
tin Luther said, "A schoolmaster
must be able to sing, or I will not
look at him." Music in the public
schools is the great musical question
of to-day, because it is the founda
tion on which must be built the
superstructure. To prove that this
foundation is important let us take
two classes of children at six years
of age, of say, forty in each class.
To one class lot us give a judicious
course of musical training all through
their school lifo. At the end of the
first year let us find them nblo to
read at first sight any exercise which
can be written, using the first five
notes of the scale, with the half and
quarter note. The second year mid
the remaining tones of the scale with
the same results, and so on each
year through tlie school course, until,
at the end, the pupils are able to"
read any ordinary music at sight,
and are equally as well posted in
music as in their other studies.
Then they arc as much musicians as
they arc mathematicians, and in the
same degree and sense. Together
with this development of reading
and theory must be followed out a
judicious training of the voice. Loud
singing, that which ruins the child's
voico, must be avoidud, so that thd
voice is made stronger, purer and
better for the training, and not
ruined as is stpe to be the owse
where loud fainging iB allowed. The
same taste for good music as for
good literature must be looked for.
Tlio snnio care in Ihc manner of
singing tt eong ns tlto rending of a
selection from the rending book
should bo cxciciscd. Tlio samo uo
curttcy for tone ami time as for pro
nunciation mul spelling of words,
llcsidc these, who have now become
ladies and gentlemen, let us plnco
the other class who liavo enjoyed
equal advantages in all things except
the music, mid sec which nro fitted
to enjoy music the balance of their
lives. "Which clnss is best fitted to
become members of our church
choirs or musical societies ? "Which
class would nrliits chooso for list
eners? Against nil superficial work
we solemnly protest. We do not
call the learning of any number of
songs or exercises by rote, a musical
education, or, practically speaking,
any part of a musical education.

Police Court reports is to keep out

In an item on Japanese immigra
tion, tlie Planters' Monthly says the
average cost of field hands amounts
to one dollar a day in most parts of
The Planters' Monthly calls at
tention to the subject of forage
plants, and says "it is extravagant
to be importing such a great propor
tion of the feed for our animals."
A protest uttered by Alfales
Young, son of the late Mormon
"prophet," against the exactions
and oppressions of the Church, gives
hope that Mormonism will ultimately
break down from within.
Being attacked for what they arc
responsible for is what journalists arc
accustomed to, but to be maligned
for what courts of justice do is some
thing that requires more than living
down. It must be "Put down, "as
one of the characters in "The
Chimes " would have said.
The Planters' Monthly for Feb
ruary is not an unusually good num
ber. To say that it is would be
doing an injustice to the many ex
cellent preceding issues. It i, how
ever, one of the best that has ever
been issued. The editorial matter
is ample and able, and there is a
large lot of well-selected information
from other sugar fields.
- CHURCH DECORUM AGAIN.
Euitok Bulletin: The allusion
of your correspondent in yesterday's
Bulletin, in his communication on
"Church Decorum," to the "wee
crack i' the church yard" seems to
indicate that by descent or associa
tion he is allied to a peculiar race.
Of the race in question it has been
wittily said that an idea can not be
got into the skull without a surgical
It must have been with a happy
prescience of such criticism as he
has seen fit to spread before the
public that before the delivery of
the sermon, contrary to my usual
custom, I wrote out tho very expres
sions I desired to use. The publi
cation of the following will grealtly
oblige, Yours very truly,
" Arriving at tlio entrance of tho
church haw diligent should be our
care to banish all that is unbecoming
to the hour and tho scene ! I may
especially mention hero, only to
deprecate in myself and others, a
habit which has for many years
grown upon the congregation, and
soon I trust to be a thing of tlie
past. I mean the habit of chatting
before and around the church door
previous to the timo of service. Our
talk at such a time is not about the
soul's penitences, shortcomings or
refreshments. It consists rather of
kindly greetings, of friendly inquir
ies, of social courtesies, often arising
from an anxiety to welcome others
to our house of prayer; but it is not
in keeping with the coming solemnity
that the approaches thereto should
be blocked by talking groups. If at
such times words and greetings,
whether by smile, voice, or grasp of
hand, bo demanded by courtesy or
affection, let them bo tho briefest
possible. The stranger who comes
to worship with us on tho Lord's
Day will Ami an attraction ami wel-
come in many wailing within for the
bidding to prayer, rather limn in tho
many talking without, while it will
not bo necessary to pass in review
before questioning eyes and amidst
whispered comment in order to teach
tho churchMoor. Let every believ
ing soul come to the scrvico of the
Lord's House an apostle of silence,
save by voice of prayer and praise.
"The Lord is in His Holy Temple,
let all the earth keep silencu before
Him." How would the majesty and
dignity of our service bo increased if
every worshipper consciously re
solved, So far ns iu mo lies this
house shall hear no sound save thnt
which goes up for acceptance to the
Throno of Love and Truth.' "
