THURSDAY, JAN. 21, 1880.
Paper rend by Mr. II. llerger,
Bandmaster, at the meeting of
the Teachers' Convention in this
city, in December last.
Music is as old as humanity.
Wherever mankind exists tlicic is
music. However primitive the
people, music is always a prominent
factor m their social life. But a
great difference is to be noted in
different nations, as pure agricul
turists, hunters or commercialists.
The agriculturists always prove to
be the most musical. For example,
the Phoenicians and Carthaginians
were commercial people, but wero
not given to cither music or poetry.
Take the Jews and Greeks, who
were agriculturists, and their music
and poetry live to-day. The Moors
and Arabs have always had music.
The Romans were not so fortunate
in this respect. But why go so far
back? Take the English and Italians
of to-day. The former arc a com
mercial people and have not much
music, but the latter have immense
music. Here in Hawaii, we have
the Chinese and the natives, the
former very successful in every re
spect, the latter degenerating, but
clinging to music and song. And I
think it the duty of every govern
ment to protect and foster music in
the public schools, and children
should not be excused from singing,
even if they have so-called "no car,"
and if they cannot learn to sing,
they can learn the poetry and the
time. I am sure that everybody is
born with ears, but the training of
the ear is neglected. I believe it to
be the proper thing to teach music
through the ear. It is a wrong im
pression of many that music is prin
cipally through the eye. Through
the car we teach the heart, but
through the eye we only reach the
brain. How many there are that
play the piano and can read music
readily, but cannot sing one tone ;
and on the other hand, how many
can sing beautifully, but do not
know one note. It is by utter neg
lect and often from sheer laziness,
that many people grow up without
having an car. Every child will
lcar to sing if only properly drilled.
Drill is one of the principal things
in a school. To drill the children is
an art which many teachers never
acquire. And if children do not
learn to sing, they will learn to keep
time, which is itself a necessary
thing, and it will give them a liking
for music through life. Then you
know that .who likes music and sing
ing is not a bad creature, but if any
one does not like music and singing,
beware of him. My teaching, so
far, for one year has been simply
to drill the ear. I labor under the
disadvantage of too many scholars
in one lesson, having an average to
a lesson, of about one hundred, and
only one lesson per week, besides
that the scholars, in the native
schools, are not perfect in the under
standing of the words. There
seems, too, to be a favoritism -with
some pupils that should be strictly
avoided. If there is a child excused
from school, the teacher who gives
the lesson should be informed.
However, 1 have great hopes for the
cause.' I sec progress. I hope to
teach the eye also, by and by, when
the ear is properly trained, 60 that
the conscience and feeling aro
reached. So far it has had to be
very much mechanical to lay a
proper foundation. I hopo the
Board of Education will issue an
order that but one text book for
singing be used in the public schools,
and the Bame for the private schools,
as wo have'onby one text book for
reading, arithmetic, and other
branches. As it is now, two chil
dren from different schools cannot
sing together owing to not having
learned from the same book. In
conclusion, I would urge upon you
to teach the children to sing, and
have them learn the poetry too.
Educate the car, and, through the
ear, the heart and conscience.

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors of tho Equitable Life As
suranco Society of tho United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on tho advantages offered by the
Bocicty to tho public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all the approv
cd forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Endowment and Tontino po.
licics. It is immaterial to tho Directors
which form of policy Is taken by In
2d The Llfo and Endowment formi
of policy provide for annual cash divi.
dends and a surrender value; aro Indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on tho Ordinary
Lite, but, while tho latter is only pay
ablo in the event of death, the bolder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of the reserve and tho accu
mulated profits in rash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during bis own life
time, after his producing years ate past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that the return
fiald in cash on maturing Tontino po
icies approximates to or 'exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
6th Tontino policies, like others, aro
paid in full in tne event of death at any
timo during the term of the policy, and
are incontestable after three years, and
payablo immediately after due proof of
Cth Experience shows that tho mor.
tallty is lower among Tontino policy,
holders, as the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontino policies will bo mado
non-forfeltablo under tho laws of the
State, if so desired at the time the as
surance is effected.
8th Tho Tontino system is fair and
just; its accounts are accurately kept,
separate irom ail otner business; tho
funds judiciously Invested and improv
ed, and tho accumulated profits faith
fully guarded and properly appoitioned.
0th Tho Society has since its" organi.
zation transacted a larger amount of
new business than any other company,
whllo its new business for tho first half
of the present year is $1,760,000 larger
than that of tho first half of 1884. It
has Assets of $60,000,000; over $14,000,-
000 of Surplus, and its ratio of Surplus
to Liability is greater than that of any
