The right to like or dislike a musical composition without giving a reason hae long been regarded as coexistent with h u m a n freedom. Music ^ s been a sort of Cinderella of the arts, causually observed. Incidentally admired, but generally treated as of no Importance In the presence of painting and poetry. No one presumed to pronounce an opinion on the merit of a picture or a statue who had not learned the difference between a pen-and-ink sketch a n d an oil protralt, and a few persons would "have ventured to write down Shakespeare n« a fool before having acquired a sufficient knowledge of poetry to tell an ode f r o m a comedy.

For music was not matter to be reasoned about, but just to be listened to, and to be enjoyed.

"tickles t h e ear." The Intellectual Includes the form, method, and design of music. Altho some have denied t h e power of music to express emotion, the Emotional is that quality which conveys feeling of some kind and arouses feeling in the hearer. To come to the performance of music, it is natural to t a k e u p piano playing first because it is the most plentiful. More people go to hear piano playing than any other form of instrumental solo playing. But out of every one thousand persons who attend piano recitals, about one is credited with having any real knowledge of what constitutes good piano playing.

Liszt iw said to have uttered this bit of "smartness:" "Three things are necessary to make a great pianist:— first, technic; second, technic; and third, technic." And technic is w h a t .the great mass of llstenera hear. The man who can strike the largest number of notes in a second is their hero, whether tones are a p p r o p r i a t e or inappropriate.

The latter quality is so essential t h a t an old singing mawter is quoted as saying a f t e r hearing an unimpassioned soprano: "If 1 were t h a t woman's teacher I woul4 marry her and break her heart, and in two years she would be the greatest singer in Europe." But the emotion of the artist must be controlled under tne command of lhe will and the will in turn guided by the intellect.

It Is said, t h a t when Thorwaldseh, the great Danish sculptor, unveiled his statue of Christ, he was seen to weep. His friends who had come to congratulate him were astonished to hear him say: "My genius is' decaying." " W h a t do you m e a n ? " they asked. "This statue." he said, "is the first of my works that I have ever felt completely satisfied with. Till now my-Ideal has always been f a r beyond what I could execute, but It is so no longer, I can never create a great work of art again." This question comes to me, "Are we as individuals and as a society completely satislied with our present conditions?" If we are. we a r e in a very Bad. state, f o r when an individual or any group as a society catches up with Its ideal or highest aim and become completely satisfied, the death knell is sounded.

"Ah. a man's aim should exceed his grasp. Or what's a heaven f o r ? " These are the words of Browning, when he speaks ^of "the faultless painter." Andrea de Sarto. A man's aim. which I believe is our aim, should exceed t h a t which he is able to grasp—in all that he does or thinks. I can not help but think of the preacher, the teacher, the physician, the lawyer, the scientist and the poet, reaching forward to that highest possible condition which will benefit mankind. Sometimes it a p p e a r s that we are trying to bring satisfaction, ease, pleasure, and comfort to ourselves instead of helping others. Is your aim In life a selfish one or are you trying to do something which will lift mankind to a higher p l a n e ? " I'm sure that men like Zwemer, Harrison, and Livingston, going to the darkest countries on the globe, preaching and healing, have had very high aims. Are we like Earnest, whom Hawthorn describes in the "Great Stone Face," day by day patterning our lives a f t e r that which is pure, unselfish, true and noble?" Living a great life or doing some act which will make your lifd really worth while can not be acquired in a single day, for as O. J. Holland has said: "We build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaultskies. And we mount its summit round •by round." But a f t e r all, the biggest and most profitable aim, is t h a t aim to be a pure, true, noble christian. This life is short, comparatively, and we should use our lives in such a way that we help others and thus prepare ourselves for the life to come. I think this idea is beautifully expressed in a short poem, written by E d g a r Guest, entitled, "If this were All." "If this were all of llfe we'll know If this brief space of breath Were all there is to human toil,, If death were really death. And never should the soul arise A finer world to see. How grim tho earth would be!

How purposeless our strife would be If there were nothing more. If there were not a plan to serve, An end to struggle for! No reason for a mortal's birth Except to have him die How silly all t h e goals would seem For which men bravely try.

If living were the whole of life, To end in seventy years. How pitiful Its Joys would seem! How idle all its tears! There'd be no faith to keep us true. No hope to keep us strong, And only fools would cherish dreams, No smile would last for long.
