EtEEt THE MUSIC OF CHINA. THE SONGS AND S0NGSTER8 OF THE FLOWERY KINGDOM. ft Fearful Gamut Founded on Linear PrtTf clpli The Higher the Notea the Worae the Infliction Popular 8ong A Llat il rtene-Kaaplng Inatrnmenta. In the golden da ye of China the musin art tnd its proftaion held high dijtinction, lsnt now to be a mu&iclai!, the author tells us, uis the lowest calling a man can profess." There is still, however, at IVkln, a board of music connected with the board of rites, ldt tlio ofH.-ers aeem little tuixious to distintruish thotuselvi. Onco acrioua music was studied with the classics, but is now totally abandoned. The common people, however, di'liiht in musk, a'. 1 love gong-beat iiurs and clarionet shrieking .;, but they do not pluy themselves. Thj professional musiciau ta a blind man. Mr Mai-fanvn tell J ns that histrumente of pen-ussion wre first invented, then those givinir sounrh by wind, and lasv by the vibi ntions of strings. The hrs. a vrie8 t liwnhoo tubes, the Chinese, declare to If the first instrument. We have a drawing of he twelve tuK making the lus, and every stlic tnlie w shorter, a short tubo bemg placed be tween two Imie onea Of course blowing them in suceestiior jiakt-s B fearful gamut., aft leait to our ears It is an ascending salot but. with many jnfuilunah) intervals. Wa have seen, not quoted by Mr. Van Aalst, the ex.i'-t moasuivnnMits f the fn?ts on a Chinese guitar. Thoy are arbitrary in their spacings. It Ls well known fhat tho higher the note ac rentable to the Kuru(van ithat is, to suit our Bars) the smaller is tho sjacing. The Krent Chinte niastiT who 1-ii-l down lo law for this sjtai-ing, so we read, found tiisivdsof a peculiar kin.l of melon. He laid down one seed on thj HiiL-erlKiard, and said that spa;t; ia ouciiote. Then he moved the stHMl its lenrth on the fingcrtxiard, made a fret there, and declared that that must be the next note, yo this methodical musical sage shortened strings, and so a gamut was given to China, f-mndod not on melodic vibration, put on liaeac principles. TrfE nt.iifKtt roa on ttte worse it is. Wh -n you try a scale the tirst thne or four Bfftos do you but venrsliirbt aural injury, but ; he higher you 0 up th? worsi is the inflic tion. Tho notation in nt readily uiiA'rstoo.i, the author st.itine; that tho Chinese theoretic ally admit s?ven 3uncU in the wale, but practi'.-nlly only use five. As to the value of the uoteu. the Chincwe have nothing indicative 5f tliU. -The Kirt Chinese musician could only cmjoi-ture tho general form of a written piece shown him for tho lirst tii-ae. To be Ue to dcHijiher it he must lilrl hear it playM." Wo can understand from this how x ! iind musician tJll. all the necessary Chuiese recjuin'mentA Tolya.i ym please is to keep Chin-w mt for "tbe tunea, in-jdilie.! by individual lasto of the irformvr. may after a lapse of time Kvomo quite dilfen-Bt from what they w -re orieinallv."

Flayed on the piano or sung, t'ion'.my is it salient trait the mon otony of musical stupidity. Mr. Stent, who wrote an tntresting article entitled "Chinese Lyi-vcs," has reiroduce.i the notes of this par ticular song, and he writes: "However sim ple or nhsurd any song I introduce may ap xjar, 1 claim that it possesses equal, if not su neri'T. advantages t our own popular songs. We can not agree with Mr. Stmit that is, as rcgariLs the spocimens of Chinese songs here tofore jnwented. "Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines" is as the "Moonlight Sonata" to "Madame Wang." What we do think, however, is t hat the words of this song are of a much higher poetical character than are our wn. In one song entitled, "Ma-ma hao ming pni" ("0 inamma, you understand well,") there is some very, very faint approach to tunefiilrews but only a feeble suggestion. Chinese must lie fond of these songs, as we ore told that some of them have fortj -eight verses. In a funeral or a wedding march ex pressions of grief or joy are utterly indis tinguishable.

Charles D. Jacob, e.r.wiayor of Louisville tnd recently appointed minister to one of th South American states, was the son of John I. Jacob, once the only millionaire of Louis ville. The father was regarded in his lifetime much as the first John Jacob Astor was looked upon here, as phenomenally rich. Both made the bulk of their fortune in real estate. When Jacob's son had finished hiseducathin and had returned to his father's house in Louisville, the father put before tho youth the uiiportaut question as to what profession or business he desired to pursue. After a fortnight or so the anxious sire asked the rather indifferent son what he had decided he woulddike to be. The son had been frequenting the only theater in thecity.
