INTERNATIONAL OR LOW
PITCH WILL BE IN FAVOR
Musicians m general, and singers
especially, will welcome the news that
the use of a concert or high pitch is on
the decline, and that international or
low pitch will soon be the only one
to be used tit her for concert, band, or
chestra or singing. The fact that this
change is taking place is shown more
than in anything else, in the maniifac
Hire of wind instruments. All of the
large manufacturers are now making
low pitch instruments extensively
There is hardly a house in the country
that is not pushing them, and the time
is not far distant when all orchestras
and bands will be using international
pitched instruments. The American
Federation of Musicians is takiug the
matter up and urging the adoption of
the new idea, which will greatly bene
fit many .
The reasons for the change are
many the principal one being that the
music produced is of a much richer
qualitv. and harmony is more exqui-
j site when produced in these instru
j ments. It is well-known that the lower
J registers of the clairinet. flute, violin.
. cornet and in fact nearly every concert
i instrument, are much more pleasing
!to the ear than the higher ones, and

But the instruments will not be the
only ones that will be helped by the
change. Singers will End it much
more beneficial than the others as it
will give them a chance to sing with
out crowding their voices to the top

panies have been using a pitch be

the purpose of reli-ving their singers,

KID McCOY GETS THE
DECISION OVER SULLIVAN
Hammers Him Almost at Will
Twenty Rounds, But Cannot
Put Him Out.
Los Angelea, Cal., Sept. 2S. "Kid"
McCoy wa3 given the decision over
Jack "Twin" Sullivan, of Boston, at
the end ot 2' lounds last night. The
fight was a fierce one from the start.
McCoy punished Sullivan severely,
having his nose and mouth bleeding in
every round after the fifth.
Sullivan appeared to bo in hotter
condition, and although he was groggy
at the end of several rounds and down
for the count in the 12th. he recupera
ted quickly and came back in each suc
cessive round strong. McCoy tired
after the 12th, but was so much the
better ring general and boxer that he
was able to take it easy whenever he
In the 12th, which was the hardest
round, McCoy hammered Sullivan on
the face and body until the Boston
man went down and took the count of
nine. He managed to get to h!s feet
just as the gong rang, which probably
saved him from a knockout. McCoy
showed all his old cleverness and gen
eralship, but did not appear to have
the punch that has won him many bat
tles. Although he landed his rigut
many tfmes on Sullivan'3 body ami
jaw, he failed to put him down more
than once, although staggering him
half a dozen times.

Sept. 27. I am glad I had my way.
We talked it all over on the train
while a Chinaman was climbing out of
the upper berth in our section. We
didn't know the Chinaman tlept over
us. That's one of the pleasant sur
prises of traveling on one of these
world's fair sleeping cars. I wouldn't
be surprised next time to wake up
and find the foot of one of these I go rote

resting in my face. For it must be
kept in mind that this is a world's
fair not a St. Louis fair and you rub
elbows with every race and nationality
under the sun.
But as I said before, I had my way.
and that accounts for the fact that we
circled around the great exposition
like a vulture circles around his prey
before alighting. John wanted to
"wade right into the exposition," as
he expressed it. and Jane had her mind
set on the lagoons. The gondoliers ap
pealed to her romantic instinct. But
my plan was to first take in the "high
lights", to view the great exposition
from lofty vantage-ground, marking
the mountain-tops of achievement, and
measuring its plan and scope.
So we took the intramural railway

indescribable. We were viewing a

of a 1.250 acre forest all for 50 cents,
and as we went rushing along we tried
to take in the panorama of sculptural

too much for the range of human vis

on the intramural the wrong way. We

the Cascades crowned by festival hall
and the terrace of states burst upon
our view. From that time on there
was a bewildering panorama of gar

coal mining camps, zinc and lead mills,
a Black Hills gold reduction plant, the
great horticultural and agricultural
palaces, a model poultry farm, the fa
mous Ferris wheel, the United States
life saving exhibit, the buildings of
Brazil. East India and Canada. As
we passed the bridge of Spain leading
to the walled city of the Philippine
reservation we heard the yells of the
