"I do not think Luetgert will be found guilty," said he during this morning. "I don't sav he is not guilty, but it has not been shown and can't be. They haven't enough to work from." He said the state do. -a not expect a verdict ofgulty a ad that even a mis-trial would be a surprise. Dr. Martin on Spiritualism.

That Park Music Protest I see in the Herald of yesterday a protest against the program for the concert of Sunday next. What is wrong about it? If it is a disgrace to play pieces on Sunday it would be a disgrace to play tbe same pieces on any weekday. Tne park is apuoncpiace where all kinds of people of all kinds of religion assemble to hear the music of the famous McGinties. Suppose tbe bandmaster would play the "Stabat Mater," "Tbe Massiah" and others? Some would want the pieces rendered at the dedication of the rebuilding of the temple at Jerusalem after the cap tivity, and infidels might want some thing else. During my service in tbe Pontifical Zouaves in Rome we often had military mass with music. The bandmaster was a "German, and what pieces did he play i Here are some oi them: 'Ich weiznicbt was soil esbedeu ten," 'In einen Kuehlen Grunde," "Soheir 30 Yahre bist du alt," "Morgenwroth," and others. Tbe French, Hollander, Belgians, Canadians and others did not understand the titles, but pro nounced the music magnificent, and nobody objected, as they believed with the Apostle Paul, in anything you do in eating and drinking do to the honor of God. Let the bandmaster alone and if you don't like his music, why, doun't listen to it. F. O. Schneider. Xnyal makM tbe totd pure, whoJeaomc and daliafOBB.
