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,

clarionet shrieking .;, but they do not pluy
themselves. Thj professional musiciau ta a

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.

Bfftos do you but venrsliirbt aural injury, but

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

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. CLAPIT.RS. TKI!.;LKS. GON.JS Aim DKfHS.

He Was Naturally Disappointed.
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. "Father," hesaiiL'Ibavesonietimes
thought I would like to lie the leader of an
orchestra!" The father was naturally disap
