Xho beet manner of conduct
ing church music is that by
which the greatest number of
people are induced to eing.
The service is not one of enter
taiument or instruction, but of
pratse. The command is, "Let
all the people praise Thee."
Our fathers in the faith in
Scotland believed ibis end best
reached and the command'
obeyed by placing before the
congregation a precentor,
whose duty was to lead in the,
service. The singing in Scotch
churches is almost always
good. Their plan is in vogue
in many congregations in our
land, and works well. In some
partd ol Uermauy, and in many
of our American German
churches, tne music is led by
one singer, with aa organ ac
companiment. The Hermans
habitually sing in church; and
though some think their tunes
monotonous, the musio ia their
Protestant worship is invaria
bly good. The trouble in con
gregations led by choirs is that
the majority listen, but will
riot be led. The choir do the
singing .8 well as the leading.
The people praise by proxy.
When the question is agitated,
the choir are blamed for their
selection of tunes, etc. Otten
trouble arise, and divisions
arecauted. The question, shall
there be good or bad singing,
mast be answered by the con
gregation. They must art with
the choir and the choir with
them. It the choir yield to
their wish and sing some old
tunes, they muBt be ready to
yield and sing some new ones.
The babit ot singing must be
cultivated.' The majority of
worshipers ic almost any con
gregation will, f accustomed
to oiogiDg with their choir,
learn aa ordinary church lane
by the second or third verse.;
A good man, now gone to bis
rear, wbo, years ago led one
ot our city choirs, regularly hi
nted the people of the con
gregation te attend choir meet
ing, liis invitations were al
ways accepted by some; and
though the choir was made ap
of professional singers, the
church bad good congregation
al singing. Not only were new
tunes mixed with the old, but
tunes written by the leaders,
who was well known as a com
poser, were largely used, and
are used to this 4 ay by the
congregation. Choir leaders
are , as av rale reasonable and
up to the average of good
sense. In musical matters they
are the educators of their
churches. Their tendency to
sing u9 and difficult music is
sometimes to be deplored. It
is, however, an error in the
right direction, and counter
acts a tendency on tae pact
of the church to cling to a few
well-known tines, to the neg
lect of others easily teamed
and just as good .The doty of
every individual member of a
congregation is to follow the
choir or leader in praise te the
best of his ability. A good
choir is an advantage to a
church, but to leave the sing
ing entirely to it is mistake.
The people are thereby robbed
of their part in the service,
and God is robbed of bis praise.
'Lot everything that hath
breath praise the Lord."

A Michigan man has invent
ed a unique, poetical, and, to
his mind, eminently practical
mode of traveling rapidly on
horseback. His idea is to con
struct a cone shaped balloon,
which is to be laid lenghthwise
upon the horse's back. The
animal and rider are then to
be weighed, and the balloon
filled with just gas enough to
lift all but a few pounds weight
of horse and rider from the
earth, in order that the frisky
Pegasus may have nothing to
do but go ahead. The possi
ble speed of such a contriv

Having recently seen, in our
exchanges, several plans fcr
excluding this troublesome
vermin from cribs, we give a
plan tha, onr experience prov
es to be effectual. Make vour
sills aqiare, say 10 inches; saw
into and block oat from these
so that the joists will be even,
or the face with the top; the
floor tben rests on these sills
so that there is no place' for
the rat to stand, to cut his way
through the floor. And as far
ther preventive have your
posts, upon which the house is
to rest, three feet long; sink
them into the ground 6 inches;
this will leave the crib 30 in
ches above the ground; at the
top ot the post tack around a
strip of tin, 6 or 8 inches wide;
ti e tin being hard anl smooth,
the mischievous little rascals
can not climb over It; and are
The posts may be round or
square, and old tin may be
nsed, but new is preferable.
