Again. It l romr'a'aed that tne Play
w witched during the lsst season taught
no lesson, thnt they merely served to
emus, to divert; that they were Inane
and that none of thorn drove home, with
Irrenlatlbln force any great moral truth
or economic principle. Glory be! If this
Indictment, be fairly drawn It la time to
announce that the stage has reached Its
goal. If It has attained a point where for
even the three houra usually consumed In
predentin a play It can divert the atten
tion of the auditors from the cares of life,
from the sordid realities of actual exist
ence, and by presenting pictures. Idealised
or exaggerated caricatures, enable one to
forget that there Is any other life, thrn
the stage has accomplished its mission.
It Is still the part of the good actor to
"hold the mirror up to .nature;" It is still
the aim of the good piny writer to draw
his characters true to life and to set them
amid pictures that do not outrage the
verities, the while supplying them with
words that run trippingly from the tonguo
yet telling the story with a point. All of
those things pertain to the stage nowaday
as much as they ever did, and it may
easily be accepted as a fact that the stag"
will never grow away from them. During
the winter we were several times afforded
most convincing and acceptable proof that
the (lay which will please and not under
take to teach a lesson Is wholly possible.
Not only wholly possible but most delight
ful In Its actual existence. What more
charming experience did we have at the
theater during the winter than was given
us by "The Professor's Love Story," by
"Quality Street," by "A Royal Family,"
by "The Second In Command," by "Prince
Karl?" This list, unfortunately, Is not
endless. It Is too short, but It Is plenty
long enough to show that the play with
out a villain, without a problem, without
a lesson, la a most wholesome and alto
gether enjoyable possibility. Of course,
there still exist those of epicurean tastes in
the matter of literature as well as
gustlbles, who relish, or pretend to, their
plays like their meats, the better for being
a trine high. Most or us, though, can t
help realizing that "high" Is only a polite
way of saying that decomposition has al
ready commenced, and prefer both our
mental aud physical pabulum served be
fore there la need of preservatives or dis
infectants. Experience of the winter also lends sup
port to the belief that the play built on
the sex question has undergone a decided
modification, a testimonial to the improve
ment of public taste. Only a little while
back we were regaled with the recital of
Incidents that lnevltablyend In the divorce
court, or were given the life of the co
respondent and the defendant after the
rase had ben heard behind closed doors,
only enough of the Incidents being hinted
at to prove that the details were salacious
In the extreme and that the court was well
Justified In cutting asunder the marital
bonds. After these delectable personages
had paraded themselves, emitting a con
stant stream of platitudinous epigrams.
with an occasional homily from one or the
other on right living and how to be happy
though married, we were given a plunge
into a still deeper abyss of the dramatic
inferno. From the brothel came the
heroine and the meretricious environ
ment waa given us In all its garlshness,
with the aoft background of a well ap
pointed home to furnsh tone to the high
lights. What might have been done further
is beyond mortal ken. Some of these went
many, many steps the other side of the
metes and bounds of decency. But the pub
lic has had enough. And while the plays
of last winter may have been what one 1
complaining writer calls "tawdry dramatic
Inanities," they .were at least such as a
man could alt through beside a woman and
not feel ashamed of himself at some time
during the performance.
Certain featurea of the seamy aide of life
are never mentioned, much less discussed,
in polite society. Why, then, should they
be made the basis of the drama of the
day? No one la made any better by listen
ing to the exaltation of wrong doing, the
defense of Iniquity, no matter how elo
quently or attractively the subject Is pre
sented; and it la not altogether Improbable
that aome may be made worse. Only one
lesson can be taught and that la the old
one, "Be aura your sin will find you out,"
and even ita teaching la of doubtful value.
That truth baa been known since before the
first of metaphysicians, and yet how much
has the certainty of discovery lessened the
inclination to sin? "Knowledge cornea, but
Wisdom lingers land he beara a laden
breast full of aad experience." The moral
lessons taught by the stage, if any such
there be, are not apt to deter any from
entering upon alnful indulgence. The prob
lem play la mors likely to have a directly
opposite effect by showing how fair the
road and eaay of acceaa are the various
stopping placea along the primrose path
of dalliance, while the blase of the ever
lasting bonfire is screened from view by
the foliage which shelters the sinners from
all thlnga but themselves. Those of us
who know about these thlnga get enough of
them without going to the theater for a
further supply, and such aa do not know
of them are happy in their Ignorance aad
in no immediate need of enlightenment.
Let ua therefore hope we-may have not
another but many more seaaoaa of plays
which teach no leasons, but merely nerve
to divert and for the moment, at leaat, dis
tract the mind from the more absorbing
thlnga of actual life. More of the humor
of Barrle and Marahall and leas of the
cynical wit of Plnero and Jones. If you
please, Mr. Manager. And if the worat
comes to the worst, give us Oussle Thomas
and let Clyde Pitch go hang.

In further pursuance of the discussion of
the scheme for a national conservatory of
music and art, bills for which have already
been Introduced In both houses of con
gress, the following excerpts from Mr.
Kowalsky's pamphlet (which Is on file as
senate document No. ST9) will be of Inter
est. The point he makes as to the establish
ment of preparatory schools Is a good one
and it Is true that a national Institution
properly controlled would become an In
spiration and an encouragement to the
private teacher and would become a
standard which would sift the good from
the mediocre, the truth from the pretense.
"It will give an undoubted boom to muato
all over the land; It will cause hundreds
of preparatory Institutions to bs estab
lished, because only pupils who have at
tained a sufficiently high standard will be
accepted Into the national conservatory.
But from the national conservatory will go
forth what will be required of the respect
ive pupils, and the preparatory schools
will educate up to this standard ao their
pupils can take the examination. Where
are we going to get tho talent necessary
to fill all these professorships? Well, that
la easy. The most of them we would bring
over from Europe; they will be glad to
come on a five-year contract. There are
many good men in America who ran be
employed. If we bring to America Europe's
greatest masters and have them cast their
musical influence iver the Innd, Is not that
sowing the seed and will It not yield us
a big crop of musicians T It Is said, 'Oh,
It Is in the air In Europe.' Well, we will
put it in our air. America has a large
cosmopolitan population. The blood of our
foreign ancestors has not left all our veins
as yet and the music that filled the aouls
of our forefathers Is smoldering and only
I think with Mr. Kowalsky, that our
coBmopollton population augurs well for our

tral representatives have heard In bygone
days the charmed words from the living
lips of a Heine, a Bobby Burns and a Tom

sons and healthy daughters here among ua,
men and women whose grandparents were
thrilled by the grand old "Gothic" music, if
one might use the word, the mellow music
of the oratorio and the stained-glass bar
monies of the old cathedral service.
A national movement would quicken the
circulation in the now sluggish musical sye
tern and would make for progress in every
thing that pertains to the ennobling, uplift
lng and comforting of this poor old tired
human race, which needs simply encourage
ment, sympathy and rest Mueio will be a
WTille passing over this subject the
thought occurs to me that this is the time
when many schools and colleges and con
servatories of music will be "graduating" in
music. Every student should be warned
that this does not mean the "finishing" of a
musical education. The lawyer who has
his "sheepskin" or the doctor who has just
framed his diploma, 1b simply ready to be
gin the real study of his profession. He
begins to study and to "practice." So should
it be with the student of music.
His graduation diploma, should be consid
ered merely a "permit" to study and prac
tice. He has simply learned how "not" to
do things, he must at once begin to learn
how to "do" them.
But alas, many of them can simply pos
and talk largely about technical monstrosi
ties and the advantage of the Markeasy
method over all others, especially the one
In vogue at the school across the way.
This implies a very limited education.

arise by hundreds to defeat it By their
fruits indeed ahall they be known Just as
people were In those days of long ago when
great teacher propounded the proposition
that one need not expect to gather grapes
from thorns or figs from thistles! But
to return to the Kowalsky article:
The writer of the pamphlet proceeds to
the discussion- of the actual necessity for
an American national conservatory, and I
think he uses a sledge-hammer argument
In Its favor when ha points out, aa he doea
in the following lines, that the great bene
fits will neoeasarlly be enjoyed by the
young man or woman of limited means,
persons who could not dream of afford

surely It would be a great school "for the
people." The rich can afford to go abroad;
the poor (but talented) must stay at home.

honored by the world, without question,
and when this government placea Its stamp
on the diploma of the graduate It will mean
that he la armed with a high-class cre
dential that makea him the equal of any
man who steps out of the Royal conserva
tory of Leipsls, Luge, Brussels, Parts,
Munich or Rome.
It is important to consider how grand
the opportunity will be for the genlua of
the American boy and girl who can not go
abroad, but who can become a master in
hla own native land, in muslo as well aa
In painting. The price one pays for sn
old master in these days of great wealth
la ao fabulous that only the rich million
aire can be the possessor. Our walls con
tain enough of European scenes. Nature
In her grandeur bestowed upon us a few
specimens of its wonders, snd there is
natural beauty beyond the brush of mortal
man in the Yellowstone, the Yosemlte, Ni
agara Falls, Hudson river, the Great Lakes,
the Rocky mountains, our grand rivers,
the home life of the New England farmer
or the rugged westerner, all grand and
great subjects, as well as our birds and
cattle.. Let ue produce all nature on can
vas. Europe will buy from us, and If she
doesn't we can aell American-painted pic
tures to Americana in America."
Thus spake Kowalsky, may hla tribe in
crease. We have the scenery and we have
not been lacking In poets. Who has not
been thrilled with the nature poems of
Sidney Lanlere, if he haa ever read onet
If you have not do ao at once. Read
"Clover," the "Hymns of ths Marahea
"The Waving of the Corn," "Psalm of ths
West," "Corn," snd others Just as good.
Musicians are born. They may be born in
America. Why not. ,
Let ua build musical schools then, that
the born musicians may be educated aright.
The frlenda of Mr. Walter Toung. for
