PEOPLE SHOULD JUDGE MUSIC FOR THEMSELVES Daaiel Greftwy Masaa So Tells Aadi- eace Daiiax Hk Lectin on BeetaoTea. "Judso all music for yourself was the final plea of Daniel Gregory Mason In the last of his courte of five lectures on the great matters of music under the auspices of the Washington Society of the Fine Arts, given last night before an appreciative audience which fllled the auditorium of the New National Museum. In summing up the practical value to be gained by those who attended the course. Prof. Mason urged all to learn a lesson from the trials of these great masters of music In winning Intelligent appreciation ot their work. "We will have arreat American eom. posers." declared Prof. Mason, "when Americans Judge music with unbiased and honest criticism." In this the speaker said that he did not advocate the catering to the whims of the crowd nor the melodies which appeal only to tho man In the street. lie also gave warning against the modern fadlsts. whom ho declared -are only looking for uie sometning strange in musical com position He then urged all who had gained a better knowledge of how to listen to music to impart It to some one else. Prof. Mason said that by listening to new compositions witn musical sense, open mlndedness, and unprejudiced opin ion, tho modern composers would be given a chance to show their ability to use the knowledge at hand, to produce a superior music which will take Us place In the gradual develocmcnt of musical composition to the Ideal Last night Prof. Mason discussed Bee thovan as pioneer In the field of pro gramme music In a former lecture he spoke of the Ideal perfection of classic beauty to which Beethoven had brought tho symphonic form, and of the great Individuality of his treatment of that form. Last night he spoke of Beethoven's departure in his last period from pure Intellectual formal beauty to the delinea tion of characteristic sights and sounds. This departure, in Beethoven's music, winch Is descriptive of actualities. Is to be found In such compositions as the sonatas which he designated "Les Adleux," "L'Absencc," In the op. 57 and op 27, in, the pastoral symphony (the sixth), tho llfth, and tho eighth He himself wrote to the movements for the pastoral sjmphony: "Tho Awakening of Happy Feelings on Arriving In the Coun try." "Scene by the Brook." "Merry Gathering of Peasants," 'Thunder Storm." "Shepherd Song." "Hejoiclng After the Storm" But his music never descended into the realm of photography the characteristic Is alwavs In his mu-J sic evenly balanced by the purelv beauti ful form He never carried the pro gramme typo to the point of ncccs-dty to be explained by a programme. The great success that has attended this course of lectures under the auspices of tho Pine Arts Society should be the source of much gratification to that so ciety.

In brief talk to them he took stock of his career, and ended by saying: "After this much, do you suppose I would regard a defeat for office as occasion for kicking or squealing. Indeed, no; The ledger Is all on my side." Mr. Taft said that when he took stock of his experiences, he could not help but feel grateful for whati has happened to him. Looking back on the good things that have been his for fifty-five years, he said he felt that ho must brace himself against what the future will bring to even tilings up "To be well brought uo until twenty' one years old and then pushed Into the water and told to swim. ' Mr. Taft said "la the best fortune that can come to a man." He added that this fortune had been his, and then he proceeded to re count some of the opportunities that had come to him since ho "was told to swim " Tho President told of his experiences In the Ohio and Federal courts and In the Department of Justice as Solicitor General; told how as Secretary of War he took port In this governments "pio neering In the Philippines, and re ferred to his visit to the Vatican on a diplomatic mission relating to the Is lands, which he said was one of the few such visit ever paid the Pope. He jald he had had some opportunities for constructive work as President, and end ed with the optimistic statement that tho ledger of experience would balance on his side. The President said he was going to seek from now on to old in the general causo of good government by trving to teach' its principles to joung men lie said his departure from Washington does not mean, however, that he will be an exile, but that ho will take much pleasure In the future In returning fre quently and discussing with the news paper men the attainments, and, poa- lblj, the mistakes, of "some others.
