BELGIAN BELLS WAR VICTIMS
Pamous Towers and Carillons In Un.
fortunate Country Have .Been De
stroyed In the Conflict.
Among the many unfortunate con
sequences of the European war Is the
destruction of many of the bell towers
and earillons of Belgium. Mr. William
Gorhan Rice, in his "(irillons of Bel
glum and -ollind," expInins that the
carillons are a set of tower bells at
tuned to intervals of the chromatic
scale. Sometimes there are more thfin
four octaves of bells, the lowest sev
eral tons in weight, whereas the small
est scarcely weighs twenty pounds.
The bells are connected with a key
board by means of which the perform
er causes their clappers to strike the
inside of their sound bow, or with a
clockwork mechanism that causes a
hammer to strike the outside.
The correspondent of a London
newspaper, describing a recital giv
en by Joseph lDenyn, municipal caril
lonneur of Mechlin (Malines), wrote:
"In these northern countries the day
is long in August, and it was still twl
light. Against the southern sky rose
the broad, rugged tower of St. Rom
bold's.- High up near the top of the
tower shone a faint light. After the
clock ceased striking and the vibra
tion of its deep innd solenm tones had
dIed away, there was silence. So long
a silence it seemed that we wondered
if it was ever to be broken.
"Then, pianisslimo, front thle highest,
lightest hells, as if very gently shaken
fron tle sky itsif, cant trills and
runs that wer antigelle. HIapIdly they
grew iII voluitie and m.liesty as they
descended the setle, iill the entire
heavens seeit'd fiil of miusic.
"SenteI in the garden, we watchlel
the little light in the tower, where we
knew Ih lin t seeni en rilloieur slit at
his clavier, iand yet we somehow felt
that the musit' came frot soiewhere
far ahove t tower, and was pro
duced by superhunimn hands. Some
times in wiiter there coies a th1aw,
