Why In It Mint tlio educators of our youth,
tho parents nml guardians, over choose music
an nn accomplishment In preference to art I
If a doting lather has nn nniount of money
to ox iwml on lifs faintly lio Immediately do
tides on music iir n luxury to lavish Uoii his
cherished ones, fondly Imagining that (level
opnieiit will umko nn tirtlst of Micin In Mil
specialty, A pmcnt spends hundreds of lot
lars In tho moderate education of n daughter
in music, only to see her come out, innko lnr
deliut not as n musician, hut as n society
girl. Sho then Riven up hor prnctlcu of past
regularity, censes to piny for her friends In
public, and booii growing rusty dislikes, mid
tienco declines tn piny nt nil. Utir rosebud
girl nnd muMclnii marries in time nnd In lur
household cares hu.lly engages horsolf. until
wo meet her n few years Inter on In lifo In u
pleasant homo, nun ountleil by a bright fam
ily: nnd nftor n while wo will boo her daugh
ter being given tho advantages of n musical
education llko unto her own. For what
reason or nlm such a task is assigned no ono
has renlly decided, but tho uautl conclusion
was determined from other precedent family
" ideas of culture, nnd so tho world moves on
and continues In its old rut.
If your child docs not show a special desire
and adaptability for music nnd its execution,
why wnsto your money and tholr energies
in the cultivation of n pursuit which you nro
sure they could not follow professionally,
nor oven be a skillful psrformor. lint if they
should acquire tho manipulation and usual
dexterity of lingering, through constant
thrumplng nnd practice without nascent
lovo for music and nn ear for tho symphony
of sound, buccosb will not crown their efforts.
Then after hours of laborious study of tlio
Czeruy and other five finger exercises, will
either become discouraged, from Inability to
cope with others in this Bphere, or from lack
of tlmo to devoto to daily practice, nnd wnnt
of application, our musical prodigy gives up
the coveted goal nnd retires from tho field
with the laurel crown of "what might liavo
been." After all that has been expended In
this luxurious attainment what has she to
khownsan acquired luxury! Naught save
"un old piano covered thickly o'er with dust,
tho keys are brown and yellow, and 'the
strings nro red with rust."
A young lady enters n studio from a lovo
of art and a deslro to become a true artist.
Sh will begin with the rudiment and foun
dation principles, cultivate tho eye and the
fingers to skillfully execute and detect good
work. She must aspire to original ideas nnd
then execute them In uu Idealization of her
tubject. Ono must work from casts and
from life objects, to perfect tho eye, to t,-nln
it in truo outline, proportions and perspec
tive, and afterward with an elementary
training ono can advancunud from tho sketch
class in black and white, curlculum easily
proceed to the stago of coloring tho still life
studies. There are few students (or peoplo,
in fact), who see objects alike, hence tho va
riety we observe in the various studios, of
technique, style and coloring. If our student
is still anxious to pursua her avowed pro
clivity and artistic proiiensitlos, with bor
rudimentary training slio will find herself
ably fitted to develop and elevate her chos-n
subjects. An urtlit, llko a poet, illustrates
from the homely ride of llfe.theieby enhano
Ing a virtue or exaggerates and magnifies an
evil. Thus we find an artist creating Ideals
and making a flue competence out of her
Again we will follow a student entering a
studio for the purpor o of doing a little deco
rative work, accumulating a few pictures
and odd bits of brio a brao and making the
family and her fi lends a few gifts of her own
work. Or mayhap she has a deslro for a lu
crative occupation, either ono of which if
properly applied mutt bring tho desired re
sult. She (the student) begins on some pieces
of canvas to be a- bright little study, or a
unlqus piece of china; no previous training
has prepared her, but tho teacher will either
assist her or sketch tho design herself, anil
then after f pending n few hours of labor and
a few dollars In money for tho decorative
fancy, her penchant taste is repaid doubly
in a charming bit of work which she can
display to her friends as a result of patience
and u trifle of adaptation. Sho does this
piece model atoly well and so may do several
others; and In tho end has a tangible evi
dence of tho "things of beauty and joy for
ever" to demonsti ato how her hmu s of labor
were actually tptnt. Our little artist friend
continues for n time In this work, makes
rome pretty 01 namentbl remembrances for
her friends, decointes hor ow;i "boudoir" or
hrme, cultivating her own eye fcr tho
beautiful and these with whom she comes in
contact by gocd taste in modes and style of
drefs, decomtlon and her leflued ideas of
beuuty, Bho finally drops tho palette, and
biuMies for a time, end perhaps months or
years Intervene ere tho opportunity or incli
nation to paint Is again offered. Is our little
friend at a loss how or where to begin I No,
indeed; sho is not awkward llko a musician
who leaves tho keyboard for a few weeks or
mouths. A musician, If absent for a time
from routine work, could not correctly exe
cute a harmony or even a few' melodious
strains If "out of practice;" the old com
plaint and thread-bare excuse of the pianist.
How about our little artist! When she Hint
picks up her brushes and colors, feels her
work (s a trllle crude, aim in tho use of her
brushes unable to hold them as surely as
when last In uto, thestiokesu little unsteady
at first will improve, and in u very short
period she must and will (like Hlchard), be
herself again.
1 do wish tluit the parents would see tho
'plausibility of this theory and allow the
i children the privilege of a choice. Kcouoiny
has long been pieuched and tho prevalent
idea that painting Is an exiioiislvo luxury fow
caimll'onl Is u mistaken theory, For every
dollar sjient In nrt tho followor derive Im
medtntfl valuo for value rendered. A picture,
it piece of pottery with sotno quaint decora
tion, a protty pleco of china or porcelain, nil
of which sponk for themselves In value, ns
compensation for exonso, tlmo and lulxir.
Who was ever so stupid that If once In life
they hud painted nnd been n declplo of nrt
could not ngnln reproduce similar effects.
To decorato ono does not need to possess tal
ent or genius. A neat workman, small
amount of originality, moderate degree of
patience, you or any ono can, under a fair
teacher, reach the acmo of your ambition
and do "soiuo pretty things."
Which will you choose to Iwn mechanical
musician or n airly good decorator! Iloth
are lino and worthy accomplishments, and
nro luxuries, not necessaries. Hence, from a
point of economy, wo cannot recommend
either one. Wolgh tho mutter well for your
self or child nnd follow tho lient of Inclina
tion, Surely nothing is n success unless en
tered into heartily, with manifest spirit.
Experiment with your children, soo If they
would enjoy tho pursuit of music or nrt, and
if It ensues not, drop it as n hopeless task.
Hut If Interest Is shown, sulllclout to denote
n lovo for either one, thou cultivate, on to
success and f.imo if K)sslhlo.

dressmaking was dune nt home. Women
have grown tired, oh, so tired, of thu same
ness of custom dressmaking. The mistress
of the household selects Rome young girl
or woman who Is handy with her needle,
then she goes studiously to work and plans
her own wardrobe. First of nil, slio tries
her hand oil an Inexpensive, dress, rind If
she makes n niicccm of It, which she is
very likely to do, she goes on from ono de

In a recent Issue the CoifiilKU gave cur
rcticy to some of the imnieroiiH nnd earnest
complaints against the exorbitant prices be
ing paid for electric lights, n word of criti
cism that has mot with the expressed ap
proval of many patrons of tho gas and
cltctrlo light company. This expiosslnu has
biought out the Information that the com
pany which has a monopoly of the lighting
business In this city has ts-en reaping enor
mous pi ollls from Its Investment. A gentle
man who lins investigated tho matter says
that outside of Its building, the electrlo light
company has an even ff0,0(X) Invested In Its
plant. It has bonded Itself In thu neat sum
or $11X1 (KH) mid llHcd of Its bonds to
rasUru Investois, and Is now paying a divi
dend of !iS per cent umiii tills iiiioriiious
amount of stock, or almost Ills) upon tier cent

burned only until liMIH), nt the rate of 'J: 1.1
pel mouth. One consumer declines that ho
pays II cents per night for each light whli'h
could be had ahmst nnywheio else for six
cents each per night. The system of metois
supplied by tho ci.inpnuy Is causing n gloat
deal of complaint because of lis luelllcloti'y,
or lather its over-elllclency. One patron
of the company who took tho pains to In
vestigate tho working! of thu machine
