'A land of wandering savages, without fixed home or abiding place, has of late becomne one of Butte's picturesque features, a reminder of the early days of the terri tory. These ('ree Indians, decked in war paist and feathers, have appeared more thli once on the streets of the city in all the solemn pomp which the Aborigine is wont to assume on what he deems state occasions. Marshalled by Sol Levy, city jailer, who has tr;flicked with the Indians since he was old lenough to barter, they never failed to make an appearance where barbaric splendor I.rings admiration from crowds.

Largely for this reason the little band now camped on the flat, about three miles from the city, is a reminder of the old days; the days when Montana's plains were covered with tall bunch grass, when all the streams teemed with fish and the wooded slopes of the mountain sides were the home of the bear and the elk. Not Agency Indians. These Crees know .no agency rations. They seek their food in dilerent methods theis of old, but with the same pleasing uncertainty. Scraps from the city, vege tables from such manrket gardens as have generous owners or poor fences, anid bits of cast-off meat fron the slaughter houses, these now take the place of the game they once knew. And they still re tain enough of the old instincts to like an occasional taray whleln seeking their food supply. ' hey wander as much as ever. Occa sionally they drift as far south as Idaho, and again you will find this same band as far north as the international line. They know more of Western Montana, of the towns and villages of this section than do most of the white inhabitants. Perhaps there is none in Butte better acquainted with this band than Sol lwevy, who holds tht keys to the city jail. lie trades with themt. lie is their ad viser in many matters. and lie is at times their benefactor. Scarcely a week passes nowadays but you will see a little groiup of the younger men gathered in the jailer's office waiting for some dicker to materialise in the form of a handfutl of silver or perhaps expectant that they may enjoy a gilt at his hands. T1he last appearance of the band in re galia was at the head of the recent parade of Eagles during the convention of the order in Butte. They rode through the streets, sitting on their horses with that careless ease which the Indian will al ways keep so long as he exalsts. After the parade had broken up they adjourned to a convenient confectionery establishment and found joy in a large sack of candy which Levy purchased for their benefit. Like all Indians, they are children, and nothine is dearer to their hearts than a ride to the music of braes bands beneath the electric lights in whose glare their feathers and finery show even more splen didly than in the sunlight. Miss Nannie Featherly, whose Sunday school class conducted a sale of Easter eggs under her direction last Saturday af ternoon, reports that the sale was a com plete success, and that a handsome sum was realized through the efforts of the little ones and their teaclfer.

John A. Johnson and Miss Mantie Hurl, both residents of the section immediately adjoining Dell, were married in the par lors of the Shaffer lodging house Monday evening by Justice Rich. Mr. Johnson is a well-known farmer and stockraiser of the southern part of the county, and his bride is a recent arrival from Missouri. The wedding was a quiet one, only a few friends of the young couple being present. The bride is a charming young woman and, as she was young in years, being only 16, the consent of her guardian, who was a witness to the ceremony, was stee e'sary before a marriage license could be Issued. The date for the presentation of the two plays to be given by the members of the V. F. Q. society of the county high school has now been set. The farces will be given at the opera houuse on the night of April as.

Macpherson's excellent paper was, in part, as follows: "The traditions of all nations a-scribes to music divine origin and mItusic haln ever been considered as the one tediumt capa. ble of expressing the thoughts and desires of tye immortal soul. In turning our attention first of all to Chillnese usic from which the Japanese are descended, we find they attribute it's originl to the mythical 'hird Ft,- li and to l'tl ftcius--tlle pillar of their state religiitn. The linldoos claim to derive their lusic derect from the gods. "The 36 keys mentioned in their IIuly Book are attributed, aocording to ifindoo lthengony. to Mahil Krishnsa wIho) rought forth from his five leadst five of tIl.elr SaIles, his consort, i'arbut, the si'xth, awl lirahma histielf the thirty sublidiia y ecales. "The Egyptians att ribute their imelodies to the goddess Isis anid nimusic was used by them to enhance thle eliect -I the divine service and to proclaim their dfeds andl merits of the dead. 'In their posse'ssin. Plat, says, are songs having the power to exalt and ennoble imankiniid and tlhese couIl only emanate fromt gods or god-like bIrs. Macpherson then dwelt on the Greek myths concerning music and its in fluence, touching upon the esteem in which it was held by Plato and Aristotle. from this she spoke of the early Ilehrew iusic and its development into that which t recognize as sacred music. 'ontinuing, Mrs. Macpherson said: 'When we today speak of church music there must arise in every mind the thought tof that wonderful music called after its founder, Pope Gregory-(;regorlan, or plain chant-the use of which is confinled strictly to divine worship, that nmysterious tone language expressing every shade and feeling of the heart, whether of joy or sor. row; every aspiration of the soul seeking ultimate rest in the Creator, that wonder ful growth of melody fostered and nour ishedl and brought to perfection only after the labor of over a thlousand years, and truly called by writers differing widely in creed, the 'llible in Music' and the 'Uni versity in Music.' To express and indi Cate ulity of faith by unity of liturgy has ever been the constant endeavor of the church, hence we find schools establislhed for teaching its chant, which, while pur suing the purpose for which they were founded, raised music itself into, a sci encet and an art. "T'le history of music shows the infllu ence of the teachings of these schools, since- all inventions of writilg and teach inlg IImusic up to tile thirteenth century are ascribed to the monks and eceIesiastics. As early as the fourth century St. Am brose originated a lperfect Imusical system founded on that of the Greeks, and Pope Sylvester founded the first singing school at Ro:le. 'In the same century the first attempt at musical notatilon was made by St. Ephrain aiid called the Neuie. In the sixth century St. Gregory the Great found ed a special singilg school in Ronne, where he himself taught, and it was frym thii school tnat teachers were sent with St. Augustine in 5',6 to 'Enand, while Charlemagne introduced slnlilar schools ill ermany aslid France. "Guido D'Arezzo a Benedictine mIollnk was the first to write music on lines and spaces and gave the names ut, re mi, fa, etc., still used in solmozation, to the notes of the octave. The intimate relation of music at this date with church music is best understood when your attention is drawn to the fact that these names are the initial syllables of a verse in the hymn sung on the festival of St. John the Baptist." Mrs. Macpherson then traced the devel opment of sacred music after the inven tion of counterpoint, mentioning particu larly the wonderful Missa Papae Marcelli and Bach's immortal mass in Hi minor. In the masses of Hayden we recognize the well-known features of the creation and the seasons, and in those of Mozart the characteristic features of his most famous oneras, which, though endowed with a wealth of graces by these masters and clothed in new and unexpected forms of beauty at every turn, do not aim at the expression of a higher kind of beauty than that pertainling to earthly things, and for these reasons have been described as sacred cantatas. Mrs. Macpherson spoke of the magnifi cent masses of Beethoven, Cherubini Weber, Schubert, Hummel, Niedermeyer, Rossini and Gounod, which, though mas terpieces, fail as examples of devotional music on account of a predominance of the dramatic quality. Speaking of the wide influence of the hylmns introduced by Luther, the lecturer said: "The famous 'Ein Fest IBurg' (a strong fortress), which Meyerbeer took as the text of 'Les Huguenots' and M-ndelssohn u~.d it his 'Reforuationuu Symphouy,' Wagner In his 'Kaiser March' and nach in his cantata to the same words, was written by Luther himself." Next Mrs. Macpherson reviewed the history of the anthem, and fromn this she came to oratorios. Intrmducing this theme she said: "It is laposible to say when or by whom the In1t dramatic representation of scene from Holy Welt was attmnped. For ages it had been the custom on inmplwrtant cc clesiaatical occasions to perflorm dramas on eaered subjects and it is to these prioli. tive performances- -ude thouuh they were -that we imust Ihmk for the orini0 of that grand artistic ereation-the noulest ever yet conceived with music for its baeses the Oratorio. St. Philip Neil, the founder it the congregation of ()ratorians:., devoted himself to the improvement of the miracle plays into which so many alo..mis hadl crept that they were frequently prn.haliitertd y cc. k'esiastical authorities, and intriluc'ied I.is torical senes anlid s;lrrelit allegries in tillh course of services he hell in his ,irato y.
