This encouraging condition was happiliy emphasized at the s'ated meeting of the club with Mrs C. C. Conn, Wednesday afternoon, Miss Willie Belle Mayes president, presided. During the business sea sion the delegates to the State Fed eration of Music Clubs, which con venes in Memphis, May 9-11, were elected, the pleasure of the club as to representatives being Miss Mayes and Mrs. J. R. Cunningham. While in Memphis the delegates to the session of the federation will be the guests of the Beethoven Club, the largest organization in the Tennes see Federation. A careful survey of the lesson topic, "Representative Music," Led by Miss Edith Quinn, brought out many interesting as well as origi nal thoughts on the subject. LESSON DISCUSSION. Works of musical art are not put together in accordance with math ematical formulas they come from life and they share the stirring un expectedness of life, hence all music in its broadest sense is representa tive, yet analyze the different forms of musical construction, and the ab stract and concrete are found to ex 1st. One cannot associate a major scale or an unemotional etude or fugue with Sidney Smith's "Moun tain Stream," or Edward MacDow ell's "To a Wild Rose," and fail to grasp the keen significance of the abstract and the concrete or illustra tive in music. The one abstruse. unexpresive, the other full of life and loveliness. The dainty grace of the pink-petaled rose or the dash ing force of a mountain stream as conceived in the imagery of the com poser are only two. examples among manv of the characterizing nature of representative music. True char acterization then is the distinguishr ing element that marks the repre sentative work in the vast catalogue of musical composition. It may be some glorious - aspect of nature, moonlight on still water, a stormy sea, winds chanting their monoto nous song, whatever the subject, a musical representation creates a two fold pleasure in the mind of the mu sic lover the pleasure in beautiful sound and the pleasure or the in ward eye or the memory of some thing known and loved. Represent ative music is a mighty intenslfier of emotions and moods. It is the one medium that stimulates and inspires, that creates peace and good will and makes the whole wdrld kin.

There is only one Taxi Line that runs from Gibbs to Union City the year around, and that is the John Lon Transfer Co.

In view of these facts we feel that we are entitled to the business during the summer. We are the only line that runs from the Palace Hotel.
