All Characteristics Have Been Shown by the Works of the Great Mas ters of Melody. We can learn something of a man's character by observing his walk. The sailor's gait tells its own story; so does the tread of the .plowman. The movement of music is equally sig nificant. Every race has some rhythm which it prefers to others. When the composer thinks of classic Italy his muse may fittingly choose the lilt of the Pastorale, the measure to which it is not unphilosophic to imagine the Sicilian shepherds dancing while Theocritus ruminated on. his idyls. Nor has it perished viUvthe years. Bach and Handel loved, it. When we are not moved to tears by "He shall feed his flock," or uplifted heaven-high by the shepherd's mu sic from the Christmas Oratorio, our thanks are due not only to the com posers, but to the rustics of Italy who enriched music with this beauti ful rhythm. How diiferent is the' merrymaking in the Pastoral Sym phony. Here the humor is robust, uproarious even ; the' Austrian peas ants have no aversion to getting tipsy. The change is not merely one of scene, but pf temperament. .Beet houn loved to watch the villagers at their revels and, like Goethe, he has left us a picture of the Teuton in holiday humor that men will relish as long as they love art. Here the dance is a. waltz, footed with a bac chanalian zest. Mozart's Germans dance as though they wanted to be Italians. His minuets are own cous ins to the mcasnre3 of Padre Mar tini. Occasionally, however, when the grace of God is stronger than the fashion of the day, .he slips into a Teuton mood. Eedfern Mason, in the Atlantic.

Home Department, National Magazine. Inculcating Right Views. Some peoplo hold that children should hear sad things to cultivate their sympathy. Might it not be just as effective to teach them to sympa thize with gladness? li it 'not much ! easier to weep with those that weep than it is to really rejoice with those who do rejoice? It is a very hard ened heart that is not softened at the sight of pain and distress, while it re quires something higher and nobler to be glad when another has soma pleasure or happiness greater than we possess. . Hot Stockings. A certain large engineering firm lately received an order in Russian, and, although the receiver of it had a fair knowledge of the language, there were two words he was unable to translate. Somewhere In the works, however, a real Russian was em ployed. They brought him along, and he read the letter carefully, but was still puzzled by these two words. Lit erally, he explained their meaning was "hot stockings," which seemed absurd, but was presently seen to ba the nearest-known Russian synonym for "fire hose." Manchester Guardian. Then and Now.
