Emperor William, expressed to the
conductors of the German singing so-
I eietles at Frankfort recently, prelim-
Inary to the award of the prize which
he gives every year. The singers bad
practised difficult music until they
could sing It with considerable credit
to themselves, but the emperor told
them that tbey would secure more sat
isfactory results, if, Instead of trying to
Imitate the philharmonic choirs, they
were to devote theumlves t folk-songs
"You have the Khine In your vicinity,
yet who of yon -sang a Rhenish folk
song? I can only say to you that If a
single one of you had sung Men
delssohn's 'Thou Heautl 'ul ForfSt, that
would have been a real relief to us."
lie said thai he wouid have a cheap
collection of national songs published,
and hoped that the societies would slug
some of the songs next year, and
"show the world what a wealth of
poetry and art" they contained. The
emperor's advice might well be taken
by American singing societies. The
English-speaking race has not so large
a collection of people's music as Ger
many, but there is no rearm why
Americans should not sing the folk
music of the world. All races are re
presented here, and It should be pos
sible to make the music of all the races
feel at home on this continent. The
songs that are near to the hearts of tbe
people are not the elaborate composi
tions, but the simple melodies which
can be sung by a mother sitting by
her fireside. All musical crltica agree
that a ballad well sung is as artistic an
achievement as tbe correct rendering
of what one critic aptly calls the "fool
trills" In the mad scene In "Lucia." So
let us have more ballade and less trill
ing. In one of his charming stories Dr
Van Dyke remarks parenthetically that
we have often occasion to bless our
frienls for their enthusiasms. This is
a very attractive little sentence, and
gives us one more occasion to bless Dr,
Van Dyke, who Is always putting into
shape for us our unspoken thoughts.
The tnibuslasms of our friends are si
many outlets from our own narrow
lives Into tbe wide sea of experience.
But It sometimes occurs to one to won
der why it Is that more people do not
have enthusiasms. Those who are en
thusiasts, of one sort or another, are
certainly happier, certainly get more
out of life and give more to others
than the colorless people whom we all
meet too of.ea. But some people
actually seem to think enthusiasm vul
gar, not to be countenanced In polite
society! The truth Is rather that the
person without enthusiasm for some
thing Is profoundly to be pitied. And
If one Is naturally not enthusiastic
what then? But this, like all other
arts, can be cultivated. You know tbe

Not long ago a student in one of out
universities died and Inquiry was made
of his roommate as to the cause of
the death. "He tried to live on health
principles." was the answer, "arid he
couldn't stand it." The reply was not
so naive as appears at llrst glance.
There was profound truth In it. In
spite of the contradiction. If the ad
vice of various physicians and other
authorities on matters pertaining to
health were followed there would be
nothing left to eat or drink. Dr.
Wiley, chemist for the department of
agriculture, says "the devil lurks In

be calls attention to, the danger that
lurks hi vegetables grown on or under
ground which has been exposed to con
tamination by sewage, city waste or
garbage. The free use of meat Is con
demned in hot weather, and even the
vegetables grown under healthy condi
tions are denounced as watery and In
nutritions. Milk Is dangerous, even
though the cow Is knoivn and her en
vironment declared favorable, for who
knows what latent seeds of disease
lurk in her system, the Inheritance
from remote ancestry! Cereals are

safety seem to lie In total abstinence
from eating and drinking. Fortunately
