That a summons was duly issued out of this court to the sheriff of Fre mont county with directions to said sheriff to serve the same upon the said defendant and the said sheriff has returned the same to the clerk of this court with his return thereon in dorsed to the effect that the defendant could not be found in his county. I have fully and fairly stated the facts of the case to Orion W. Locke of room 2, Arthur block.

It shocks am so to •tala hara (hots or apaak tha aahafi truth.—May Smart Sat THE CANON CITY WCOBn, THURSDAY, APRIL It, igo6 Musical Messages Edited by L D. Eichhom Voices and (aces! They go every where together. We are particular about our (aces; our voices we neg lect. Our (aces we look at and bathe and massage and in many ways care for. 1( not pleased with the one na ture gave us, we endeavor by various devices to improve the (natures. This., by the way, is possible to a larger ex tent than js commonly supposed, pro vided it be shaped and nourished FROM WITHIN FIRST. External ap plications can not accomplish all. But our voices, (aithtul servants! How little we care for them! (we are think ing now o( the voice in speech.) There are very (ew, (ull, round, deep, clear, ringing, musical voices to be heard. Instead o( sweet, the large majority are sour or bitter —partaking o( the owner’s disposition. Instead ot (ull, they are thin; Instead ot round, they are angular and sharp; instead ot deep, they are shallow, superficial or surtace voices; instead ot clear, they are cloudy, misty and foggy; in stead ot ringing, they are dull and dead; instead ot musical they are hard, rough and ugly. Now, voices differ as much as do (aces. If wrinkles can be removed, hollows filled out, and even physical defects such as crooked eyes and noses be remedied or missing ears supplied, can not something be done (or voices which are by nature, neg lect or abuse, lacking in the most de sirable qualities? Yes, something— much—can be done and therefore ought to be done to improve the speak ing voice no matter what its present condition. Let us, therefore, note some of the causes of vocal ineffi ciency that we may remove them. Twofold are the causes; physical and intellectual. Frequent colds, sore throat and catarrh and the conse quent congestion of the delicate throat membranes are very common, and are most fruitful causes of bad voice quality. Irregular and poorly kept teeth, enlarged tonsils, elongated uvula and various forms of obstruc tion in the nasal (tassages are also responsible foe much mischief. Intel ligent local treatment by,a specialist is in some cases essential not only for vocal, but for general * health. However, in the majority of cases, the individual can do for himself al) that is necessary', provided, of course, that ne knows what and how. This brings suggestion of the mind side causes. us name Ignorance and Indiffer ence. Most people know that the breath is the material out of which the voice Is made, but being careless in the use of material secure a very imperfect product, therefore, the right use of the breath is a fundamental consid eration in the production of the voice. Try this exercise now: Stand. Relax entire body. (Let go: feel heavy.) Breathe in-—mouth clos ed-deep and full. Hold the breath a little while. Exhale slowly through small opening of lips. Repeat the exercise two or three or more times. Keep the neck muscles always relaxed —loose and free. Form the habit of deeper breathing than you have been accustomed to. Many modifications of the above simple ex ercise could be given for the develop ment of various abilities and will be given for practice, if desired. Care in the use of language is the most Important element in the im provement of the voice. Most people use language very badly, and there fore this plea for precision and accu racy. Study vowels and consonants. Read this line aloud: —a e io u. Did It sound well? Read it again, listen ing carefully. Now It was better. Reading aloud is excellent practice for accuracy and distinctness. •’Practice yourself, for Heaven’s sake, in little things."—Epictetus. Everyone should study first, deep breathing, and breath control, and the perfect relaxation of jaw, neck and throat. These, together with the study of vowels and consonants, and care in the use of language, will be of great benefit to every voice user, improving the voice In quality and effectiveness. The face is a revealer of character. So is the voice. A good character should reveal itself through the voice as well as otherwise and so it be comes the plain duty of every man and woman to remove as far as possible, every limitation, and to be vocally, as free and beautiful as they strive to be in soul. Our next Messages wilj be concern ing the voice In singing. If you need a new seed drill culti vator plow, or anything In the term ing tool line, I have It waiting for you. r. P. Smith.
