into the rotunda of the Capitel. There
-was nobody about but the guides and a
few tourists, and a couple of friends who
-were with the unknown suggested te her
that she try the acoustics of the hall. At
first she demurred, but the idea seemed
te fascinate her. As she steed silent for
n moment, as if waiting for her ac
companiment, something in her easy
pese suggested familiarity with the foot feet

sang easily and unaffectedly as a bird

guards and guides crowded in te hear
this impromptu concert, and even the
anxious sightseers, who had allotted
flftcen minutes te "de the Capitel,"
paused te listen. It was grand; it was
inspiring, and the singer seemed te en
joy this realization of her art, which she
could never attain in an ordinary hall.
When she paused a round of applause
aweke ether echoes until it sounded like
the tribute of a great aucience. And
then the singer, realizing her situation,
departed. Who she was no ene at the

The following Item, taken from The LtuU
vlllc Times, Is net only true of that city, but
almost every city In the land, and we think
the people should take heed lest their friends
treat them the same way:
At nearly every public funeral conducted In
Loulsvllle there Is a display or vulgar curiosity
by many people which Is painful te the family
and f riends or the deceased and a subject or
remark te outsiders who witness It.
At a funeral which occurred at a fashionable
church recently this unfeellng conduct en the
part of Inqulsltlve outsiders was particularly
noticeable Peeple who had never known or
even seen the deceased came te chatter and
gape, and this was kept up until the precession
started Ter the cemetery. The friends or the
deceased were disgusted, and expressed them
selves very forcibly.
At such times, If at no ether, the bereaved
family should enjoy an immunity from vulgar
curiosity, and these who persist In regarding
their griet as a spectacular affair show neither
delicacy nor common decency.
