THE DUTIES OF COUNCIL MUST PLACE THE LEVY ON THE TAX DUPLICATE WHEN IT IS MADE LIMIT, HOWEVER, AS TO AMOUNT. The Question as to whether a lib rary tax is valid under certain cir cumstances has been a mooted ques tion in Wayne and every other county in Indiana which has a pub lic library. Attorney General Miller, in an 1 opinion furnished the State Library commission, noias mat auer tne library board of a town or city has declared a levy of taxation for library purposes, it is the business of the Common Council or Town Board and nI the county auditor to have the j amount placed on the tax duplicates and have it collected as other taxes. The Town Board has nothing 1 whatever to do with the levying of I this assessment," the attorney general says. "The certification to the The auestion was raised in Hamil- Itrrn rnnntr Thp T.ihrarv Hoard nf I the town of Carmel made a levy of one mill on each $1 of taxable prop- erty in the town for the purpose of maintaining a library. The Town Rnarri pxnressed an unwillincr- neSs to permit the asessment to be placed on the tax duplicate. The county auditor, however, did not agree with the town board, and did as the library board requested. The attorney general quotes the law as follows: It shall be the duty of such library board to determine the rate of taxa- tlon that shali be necessary to estab- ilshf increase, equip and maintain 1 tnft niiblin library and certify the I same to the common council or town board and the county auditor: nro- Vidrt that RaM Ipw shall .nnt ceed 1 mill on each dollar of the tax able property assesed for taxation in such city or town, as shown by the tax duplicate for the year immediately preceding the fixing of such levy. When the assessment for such pub lic library purposes shall be certified to the common council or town board and the auditor by the public library board the same shall be placed on tax duplicate of such city or county or town and collected in like manner as other taxes are levied and col lected. FIRE GIFTS ARE MADE ERNEST RENK SURPRISED Friends Who are Frequenters of the "Indian Village" Give the Young Man and His Bride Beautiful Gifts Couldn't Make Speech. Ernest uenk ana nis bride were the recpients of beaotiful gifts, last evening, the donors being the fre quenters of the "Indian Village" as Bert Englebert's cigar store is often termed. Mr. and Mrs. Kenk. who were married during the past week, have gone to housekeeping in the Wescott block and have a beautiful suite of rooms. The "Villagers" through the lead ershlp of Big Chief Frank Ensfield arranged to do a little furnishing themselves and purchased a twelve- Piece Dea room tei ana a oeautuu mirror. The gifts were placed in the village last evening and when Ernest entered he was surrounded and Mr. Englebert made the presen tation in a neat manner. Ernest was over come. He can face a theater crowd and sing with out a show of failing nerve, but In the presence of the "villagers," he couldn't make a speech, though he thanked his friends as best he could under the circumstances. The gifts were transferred without delay to the suite of Mr. and Mrs. Renk who were extended the best wishes of the boys. NO LONGER ENGINEERS. The Pensylvania Railroad Company Now Designates all Such Em . ployes as "Enginmen." The Pensylvania recently changed I the name of the men who sit on the LigM hand gide of the engine cab rf the throttle, from "engineers .. ' to engmemen. Tne title engin- eer" is reserved for the men on the civil enginering corps. It is probable, however, that the men who drive the big battle ships over the track at lightning speed will never be called lenginemen by an admiring public. The time honored title of engineer carries associations with it and Is too firmly intrenched in the vocabul ary of men to be dislodged. The en gineers themselves .do not like the ehange.

"The Natural vs. The Relaxed and Local-Effort Schools'1 In the golden days of the Old Ital ian School of Singing, men sat at the feet of Nature and learned of her. They knew little of the science of voice as we know it today, but they did know the great fundamental prin ciples of singing which are Nature's laws. Nature herself is an expression of God's thoughts and Nature's laws are God's laws. This principle of and rules everywhere in nature and in art. Everything man does or says under normal conditions is self-expression, an expression of his inner na ture. If this expression, however, is not under the law, it is unnatural and therefore, artificial. In nothing Is this principle of man's expression more evident that in the use of the singing voice. The old Italians maestros learned of nature that the singing voice demand ed freedom of form and action, spon taneity and naturalness, and conse quently turned out some few great singers, but they were events ually misled by those who styled themselves scientists, and who ima gined .they had discovered the true science of the voice and so the principles of the old Italian SchocV were changed and lost and their art became artificial. The vocal world owes much to science, for true science is true know ledge. But there is a difference be tween science and art. The end of science is knowledge. In art know ledge is merely a means to the end. which is an expression of mind and soul. The art of song is based upon the science of voice; but the true art of song is not so much a study of the mechanical action of the parts as it is a study of these forces which move the parts automatically in accordance with nature. True voice is more psy chological than physiological. A sing er is not a mere vocal machine, but a living thinking emotional soul. This means that no man can ever learn to sing because he lowers or raises his soft palate, because he flat tens his tongue, because he opens his throat as in yawning, because he pulls or pushes the diaphragm in or out in breathing, and holds an unnaturally high chest at the expense of form, position and strength in every other way. It is true that the body is the medium through which the soul gives expression to thought and feeling, but voice that is simply mechanical or physical is always common and mean ingless and often unmusical. The two great teachers of the world are Nature and Common sense. Na ture teaches us the fundamental prin ciples of voice. Common Sense tells us what devices to use for develop ment in those principles, and the best teacher or student is the one who uses the most Common Sense in studying Nature. Any vocal student who violates Nature's laws must pay the penalty. That penalty is a hard harsh, unmusical tone, or a ruined voice. All beautiful, artistic tone is the result of certain conditions de manded, not by man's ideas and fan cies, but by nature. All teachers are agreed that these conditions depend upon adjustment and form; but some teachers attempt adjustment and form by locally influencing the parts, -the tongue, lips, larynx, palate, etc. These teachers belong to the Local-Effort School. By direct control and manipulation of muscle and of the vocal parts they attempt to "compel" the phenomena of voice. The result must always be THE ROMEY FURNITURE COMPANY. ; i CALL AMD riNEW J OF THE ;!CH(KTFURfllTUM FURNITURE PICTURES 09T09A MAIM mTTr -T m m. m m mr mm C urine's Spociyjr ts the sensation of t ear in the.ichmond shoe trade. er saleHhan any othei WHY? 1 Id Cecause it Is a strict BEST shoe made for t, S3J for at siivc iue mr ispyitjf ana more mn Wilis ine guarantee. CURME'S GhOE STORE. 724 miw street. IRgshI The -Gunday hard, ' unmusical. unsympathetM voices, for physical effort in singioQ developes physical or muscular-rdaii When a muscle is set and rigid, wfc ther it be the palate, tongue, lips qr diaphragm, instead of helping the voice, it is really preventing a free natural production. For when a mus cle is rigid it is. out of action, and some other muscle is being compelled to do double work. Many voices are ruined by years of hard, muscular practice. A hard, unmusical voice is unnatural and unnecessary and by ! correct treatment can be made mel low and beautiful. The Relaxed School. Some teachers who have discovered the evils of the local-effort school have jumped to the other extreme and, have organized another system known as the Relaxed School. By means of complete relaxation they overcome all muscular tension and rigidity. But there can never be tonicity without tension and vitality of muscle, and so the pupils of the relaxed school lack energy; their tones' are depressed and breathy. That dull smothered sound, commonly known as a "covered tone" is a fair sample of the product of the relaxed school. Now singing is a form of emotional or self-expression , and requires life. Life is action; it is vital force aroused; it is a God-given and eternal condition and Is a funda- mental principal of the true art of song. The world is full now of dead singers singers who are dead as far as vitality and emotional energy are concerned. And it is rigid. 6et mus cles, or relaxed, limp muscles which have dwarfed and limited in every way the physical, mental and emo tional power of these singers. The Natural School. The first principal of artistic tone production is the removal of all re straint; this means absolute freedom, not only of form and action, but of tone. That tone is .the result of cer tain conditions, demanded by nature, and its form and adjustment must be automatic. This condition can only be brought about by exercises or de vices which are in accordance with natural and not artificial conditions. With the singer who hardens the throat muscles during the act of sing ing; . with the singer who carries a consciously high chest and a drawn-in diaphragm with the singer who takes a conscious full breath .and hardens the diaphragm to hold It the result is contraction, especially of the throat muscles, and a condition of natural freedom is impossible. Abuse brings about reform in art as well as in other things. And so the abuse of nature's laws and the lack of common sense in the training of the singing voice has led to a re bellion among the profession against unnatural methods. We no longer at tempt to compel tone production but study the conditions which allow the phenomena of the voice to occur naturally and automatically. Matter or muscle is taught to obey mind or will spontaneously. "The thought be fore the effort" is the watchword." The modern natural school teaches the idealized tone;by the ideal we do " not mean an exaggerated form of expression, but the truth the whole truth. Unmusical, muscular tona is not the true tone; it means nothing; it is merely a noise. The ideal tone, or the truth in tone is beautiful; jt represents a thought, an emotion; it is the expression of the inner the higher-man; it is self ex pression. , T 8- Tf It Is having a larg- In the City.
