Sir Frederick Bridge, the noted m London musician and conductor, says that one of the most discrimi nating critics of his acquaintance is a cabman, irho has a fine organ in his home and spends every Sunday at the instrument. He first met the man after having conducted a per formance of "The Messiah." Sir Frederick, learning that the cabby had been listening outside, asked him what he thought of it.
