Happy Environment.
The Cathedral choir school has an In
comparable location overlooking the en
tire city, with large wooded grounds
quite Ideal forharborlng nn embryo cre

graduated one of Us rcholarshlp beys
who has gone on to college. Another,
.who received free organ instruction, la
now teaching In the University of Wis
consin and Is organist and choirmaster
at Bclolt, Wis. havlrnr previously been
in charge of a choir In Chicago.
Such care.ls taken of the voices of the
boys that they usually sing through
only three of the six forms of tha
school, thus receiving fully three years
tuition with no service rendered. The
ages for singing In the Cathedral choir
Is from ten to fourteen, but the boys
of a junior choir for those who are not
old enough for regular church work are
given skilled Instruction and one rehear
sal a week. The regular choir boys
have rehearsals twlco a day, with a
dally service In Bethlehem Chapel.
They have a special music room In the
school, and recently received the gift
of a Vlctrola to broaden their musical
At present the twenty-five boys of the
choir are preparing a representative pro

Gave Two Cantatas.
At Christmas ihe choir gave on two
Sundays artistic rendition of the Christ
mas cantata, "The Eve of Grace," by-J.
Sebastian Matthews, quite the gem of
this lovely work was the solo, "The Vir
gin's Lullaby." sung by the boy soprano,
Howard L. Young. Four old English
carols are incorporated In this work,
and one of the most impressive was
"The Little Door" given with fine shad
ing by the choristers.
The choir school is in charge of Edgar
Priest, who for nine years had been or
ganist and choirmaster with Bishop Sat
terlee, the first Bishop of Washington,
at St. Paul's Church, this city. Mr.
Priest, who is now organist and choir
master of the cathedral. Is eminently
fitted for this position, having spent
four years as assistant organist or Man
cheater Cathedral. England. where he
was1 also connected with the Royal Col
lege of Music. He noWhas full charge
of .all music for the services under
Bishop Harding in the lietnienem
Chanel of the Holy Nativity, the beau
tiful crypt chapel, the first part of the
cathedral to be completed. Two organ
recitals are given here each month, on

"Babies" of' British Navy
Are Fearfully Ugly
SEA. March 14. Visible proof that
British shipyards have not been
ldte since this war began was
seen from the deck of this little craft
today. . ..
Steaming slowly past a long doublo
line of warships, observers aboard
wore able to look upon a new type of
sea fighters, many types In fact built
for war and not for looks. Theso
ugly colored craft with mottled sides
and daubed plated were the "ba
bies" of the Meet, "Infants." who
have plunged their noses Into the sea
without ceremony or publicity.
The shipyards from jfyhence they
came are turning out sister ships as
fast as mon can put metal together.
No lime Is being wasted veneering the
officers' cabins la mahogany or to put
ting the painter's touch on the hull nod
superstructure. These newest craft are
Just plain ugly, but they embody all
tho latest kinds of efficiency for which
naval constructors have the experi
ence of the war to thank.
The- makn-up of theso fleet "babies"
must remain a mystery until after the
war. In the meantime thev are the
secret prldo of tho British navy.
Some Food Prices Have
Gone Up 112.9 Per Cent
LONDON, March II. European food
prices are higher than before the war,
according to the English Board of
Trade Labor Gazette, by tho -following
percentages: England, 47; lierun, Z3A
Vienna, 112.9; Italy, 31.2.
The Oazetto based Its estlmato on
food staples In the various countries.
It dates the Increaso from July, 1914.
Tho percentages of Increase are car
ried up to February 1, 1916, In England's
case, and to January 1, 1916, In the
cases of Berlin. Vienna, and Italy.
Attention Is called to the fact that
In Berlin and Vienna many prices are
artificially kept from going still higher
onlv by government order, and that In
such cases the articles purchased are
to oe nti in noming out. limited quan
tities, and that some foods, like lard.
beans, peas and lentils, apparently are
