H " - M Musical Edited by Mrs. Working For a National Qmsrratory When Jenny Lind, the Swedish niphtinpale was once asked if she would help to prepare some. English singers for a performance of "Figaro" the "year after next" all she said was, "'Figaro'? In two years?" ' She might have put in words what she ex pressed by her amazement at the crip, inal qusesqtiqon. Mozart-sinping begins with the proper choice and edu. cation of musical ancestors; it takes, not two years, but two centuries. Some one has said that our first pres dent, George Washington, had this vision when he left in his will $30,000 at that time a large fortune, to be de voted to a national institution of iine arts. That plan of the father of his Country has never materialized. So America is' a cenury behind in petting started on a task of governmental in struction in art, which, stranr-2 to say, has come nearer than ever before to practical realization since the world wide disaster lo art3 and sciences in the great war. Mnsie baa pmprfpH from the tin- heaval of nonessential industries and F nodes of life since America entered the war. and has found a Dlace in the official scheme of things for saving the world to democracy. All art has put on khaki, the painters going in for posters or for camouflage, the musi cians for entertaining "over there" or vclunteering as song leaders in the camns. It is a new thing for hard headed veterans of Indian fighting days to practice "do-re-mi-fa-sol" to the timebeat of an upstart youngster out of music school. It is nothing shcrt of revolutionary for a general in command of an army bripade to re. quest his camp song leader to accom pany the boys from a western or a southern cantonment to the pier where .Vthey embark for France. A reappraisal of seme relative val. ues has taken place and music is at a premium today as surely as pork. It spurs the fighting men and it helps the folks back home. Perhaps right here may be found the reason for a new attitude on the part of official Washington toward proposals involv ing the most serious aspects of art.

The funeral of Mrs. Jame3 Heffron. aged 74, a pioneer resident of Grattan township was held from St. Patrick's Catholic church, Pamell, Thursday morninp, Sept. 6, at 9 o'clock, Rev. Fr. D. J. lieahan officiating and interment being made in the cemetery there. Mrs. Heffron was a resident of Grat tan practically all of her life and had lived in the same house for more than GO years. She was the mother of 12 children, of whom Mrs. W. J. Mc Carthy and Bert and Cam Heffron of Parnell, are sister and brothers. Near ly 250 auto loads of relatives and friends were in the procession which followed her remains to the church and cemetery and pave fitting testi mony of the love which the people cf the countryside, had for Mrs. Heffron. The man who can pet out with a pun these days and return with a bag of game, has talents that would be appreciated by all our boys now in the trenches. Topics K. L. Skahen come to musicians is wide enough now to include all of their kind, from the long-haired fraternity of imported virtuosi to the humblest music teacher of the rising generation. Hence the recent consideration, in war-time, of House Bill 6,445 for a NationaLcon servatory of music and art, with inci. dental control of standards cf music teaching in America. There went to the national capital, to put the case squarely before the committee on education of the house of reprsentatives on June 17 last, men and wemen from organizations both private and professional, whom such a law may concern. One of these was Milton Aborn, who in 35 years' ex perience of popular opera had come in contact with hundreds of so-called vocal instructors who should be he de. clared, "in the penitentiary", persons who, in the guise of vocal teacher, had mulcted the unsuspecting pupil by misrepresentation and who knew no mere of imparting vocal instruction than a babe unborn. In a great many cases, Mr. Aborn paid, the more prom inent the teacher the worse the offend, er. "And since my return to New York some old friends look askance, as if to say, 'Do you mean me?'" he added with a smile. "I have known poor shop pirls, earning but a scant livelihood, who have stinted themselves in many in stances in order to pay to an un scrupulous and unfit vocal teacher the fee ne exacts. The daughters cf some of our richest families are re sponsible to a great extent for the conditions under which large fees are exacted by a number of the so-called eminent vocal teachers. Hundreds of voices have been ruined by teachers whose peculiar methods have nothing to do with proper vocal training. New York Times. MRS. K. L. SKAHEN TEACHER OF PIANO THEORY CHORUS studio 318 So.

Somewhere in France, Sept. 4. Dear Friends: - Received your kind and most wel come letter a few days ago and sure was glad to hear from you folks again. I wrote to you some time ago. You will most likely receive it before this one. It sure dees seem to take a letter a long while to go from here homo. I onlv ret mail about once a month over nere where I i usea 10 get as nign as ten letters a week in the states. So you see that it makes a lot of difference." We are hating fine weather over Tiere now. It hasn't rained since the Lord knows when. We are practic ing trench digging now and it sure is hard digging.

S. soldiers at night. I haven't heard from mv folks in a long while although I write home cften. It's better for them to ret ""mail from me than for me to hear fram thrtn, When they know I am keeping well why then they won't worry. Well I think this thing will be over now before long at least. I , am hoping so. We are getting feed as good over heTe a we did before in the States. Tell Franki I hone that he has good a time with his machine as I did. Also tell him to write. Tell all the Belding folks to write. I have seen a ereat number of German prisoners over here. Re lieve me they don't need to be guard ed, lhey are willing to stay pris oners.

Ji.arie Is also somewhere over here, received one letter from him hut haven't heard from him new in a long while, so I don't know where he is now.

Pink says that he don't like it very much but he is going to stick it Lthrough until the bitter end and then make the Germans bite off the end. Pink writes the following epistle to Mrs. Gertrude Clark of .near Smyrna: August 20, 1918. Dear Friend: ' I was much pleased to get your letter and as I have a , little time I will endeavor to answer it. It has been very quiet on this part 'of the front since last month, only some shelling every day or night with a little gas once in awhile; tonight there was a little, fighting but it did not amount to much. I sure get the blues when it is quiet.) I want to see them fight all of the time so we can go home. I am on my second year here now and I am tired of it. It had not ought to take long to fin ish it now for we. are licking them right along, but nearly every one thinks it will finish some time next year. I hate to thing of another win, ter over here. Last winter was the worst one I ever put in. I never saw so much mud in my life. It snows all night and rains all day for months and months over here. I vas wet so much last winter that I have rheumatism regularly new al though I never had it before I came to France. There are a good many things I would like to have from over thero which I can't get here for we never see any Y. M. C.'A. men" at the fr6nt kand we are at the front all of the lime now, but in order to get a re quest one must first go and pee the colonel. I only see my colonel abcut once every three months as I nm on tletached service with the Fnch army. Any way a person does not 'like to ask the colonel fcr any thing. I guess I will have to do without. Last month we had a big bombard ment and 7,000 shells fell at this point that was during the big battle. We had 'lots of gas too. which killed Everything in the valley. Where I "am posted the shells didn't bother Ms much. We kept right on working 'any wav. Well, hoping this finds vou well and thanking you for your Rind offer. I will close from, lour friend, Corporal Pink Simms. Co. D. 13th Eng., A. P. O. 215, A. E. F., France.

Miss Childs will be married to Glen Castle, a mail carrier of Ionia, some time this week, although the time, date and place would not bo known until after the event had happened as the young people were seemingly be ing able to keep the matter quite well to themselves. The folks who complain because the American army doesn't go ahead faster are not usually the same ones who buy a good large Liberty bond to provide that army with an equip- mest that will enable it to advance.
