D. Eichhom I HEAR AMERICA SINGING. •*I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear, Those of mechanics, each one singing Ms as it should be blithe and strong, The carpenter singing his as he meas ures hiß plant or beam, The mason singing his as he fhakes ready for work, or leaves off work, The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand sing ing on the steamboat deck, The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands, The wood cutter’s song, the plough boy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at smn down, The delicious singing of the mother; or the young wife at work, or of the sweet girl sewing or washing. Each singing what belongs to him or her and to no one else, The day what belongs to the day— at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly. Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.’’—Walt Whitman. Practically everybody sings. Some time, somewhere, somehow, almost ev erybody sings. From the rudest sav age to the most highly cultured among civilized peoples, some kind of sing ing is to be heard. “Music may be called the universal language of man kind.” “Even the miner, while clanking his chains, sings as be lightens his la bor, with untaught music; he too sings who, bending low on the oozy sand, drags the slow barge against the stream.” —Ovid. The world owes much to this ' un taught music” for it adds so much to the happiness, peace and power of a people. It would be of interest and profit to study the significance of the “untaught song, which, like Topsy, •jes’ growed,’ but for now, we are con cerned chiefly with singing as it is done where we are and as we hear it, in the home, the concert hall or the church.” “The habitual use of vocal music by a family is an almost unfailing sign of good morals and refined taste."—Lnndon. • This singing “in the family,” is not always, upon analysis, the most beau tiful and artistic and it should be im proved as much as possible. However, as it is, crude and unstudied, it serves a noble purpose and ought to be en couraged. It usually contains the very qualities which alas! are too of ten lacking in the EFFORTB of so called cultivated singers, viz; hon esty, naturalness, unselfishness, heart, and such like. What is the great purpose of music? Ruskln says it is “to say a thing that yon mean deeply in the strongest and clearest possible way.” Ye players upon Instruments and singers! Have ye long and lovingly looked for and found the composer’s message? Have ye made that message your own and “meant it deeply” and delivered it ta the “strongest and clearest possible way?” If not, ye have not worked oat the great purpose of music. How many times has a player or singer. Ignorant of the composer's purpose or consciously for his own ends, used a beautiful piece of muslo for selftsh pnrpoees of his own, to “show off*' a certain skill Instead of serving the conposer and the people by deliver ing the message In the music! Thus is the beautiful art often prostituted to base ends by the ignorant or irrev erent. Why sing? Why not simply read the words? The purpose of the music is to enhance the music of the words and to emphasize the thought con tained in them. What is good singing? What is good playing? What is good speaking? What is good music? These and other big questions are to be answered in this column, as the Denver Post would say: “So the people may know.” The editor does not presume to give his own answers only, but will draw upon the wisdom of the wiser ones. Messages concerning singing will be continued next Friday. CHILDLESS WOMEN SHOULD ADOPT A LITTLE ONE The woman who has no children never knows the greater Joy of devo tion. Her sympathies Instead of ex tending themselves, will narrow more and more, and tend to. concentrate themselves upon the merely pleasur able experiences and sensations which only lead souls about In their own labyrinthine domain. She may win personal distinction and high fame. She may surely deserve them, but she will be in danger of following the false way which begins and ends In self, says Julia Ward Howe in the May Delineator. If the fates deny her marriage, or leave it bare of offspring, let it win to her arms some mother less child, and study the lesson taught by the dear Christ when he placed a child before his disciples' and bade them learn from him the great science of life. The beauty of childhood is not eas ily over-appreciated—the mobile coun tenance, the flexible muscles, the fair, smooth forehead, the unconscious grace of movement. What a lovely presence is this! It illuminates your whole house, be It a hovel or a palace. The babe newly born, so fine, so soft, so tender! By degrees it enters into possession of its bodily powers. Soon he follows her about, walks beside her, begins to question her regarding the meaning of all he sees. He learns to pray at her knee. He goes to school. All the way from infancy to adolese cence is strewn with flowers. It has no doubt an offset of anxieties and cares, but would any of us dream of giving up the rose because of its thorns? EIGHT HOUR DAY URGED BY GOVERNOR FOR CHILDREN Urging the adoption of ‘he eight hour work day for all* children under 16 years, the governor of Massachu setts suggests that a certificate of health be required before any child is sent to work. His reasons arc stated thus: “The epileptic boy must be kept from the elevator The tubercu losis child must be kept from the em ery wheel and the cotton card. The child with spinal weakness must be kept from employment where the backless bench or the wooden chair creates a cripple, not a citizen.”— Pueblo Chieftain. A Twenty-Year Sentence. "I have just completed a twenty year health sentence/ imposed by Bucklen’s Arnica Salve, which cared me of bleeding ptlee last twenty yean ago,” writes O. 8. Woolerer, of Lt* Raysrille, N. T.
