Thomas Whitney Surctte lectured
before the Fine, Arts society yester
day afternoon. His subject was
"Music and Life,A and he illustrated
it with many excerpts from musical
cdmpositions which he played upon
the piano to enforce and more fully
illustrate his points.
Mr. Surette said that the proper
way to approach music was not as an
outsider nor as an onlooker, but to
get into one's self. When studying
music, one should not learn merely to
perform, nor only the technic of re
producing sound, iut should learn the
technic of understanding and sympa
thizing with music. He said that mu
sic was sound, but was not only
sound any more than a good book
was only words.
"In a good book," he said, "there
are not only words, but an expression
of life and a thousand and one things
which leal one on, and arouse curi
osity and make one think. One
should learn to consider music a's an
expression of life, and to feel the
moods it expresses, and to learn to
listen to it understandingly."
Scorns This Idea.
He scorned the idea of the "Rain
drop": Prelude, by Chopin, saying that
"music does not mean anything in
this sense," that this Prelude expresses
a mood and should be listened to as
such with no idea of "raindrops." He
cited the "Moonlight" Sonata of Bee
thoven, and said that people were on
the wrong track when they connected
any idea of moonlight with this
"great expression of tragedy."
"Listening to music is like reading
a good book," said Mr. Surette. "One
must pay attention to it, or not get
the most out of it. The condition f
the mind at a concert should not be
what Mr. Hadow calls 'A drowsy rev
erie relieved bar nervous thrills.' "
ile used Conreid's "Victory" as a
book of illustration, and advised every
one to read it, adding, "The greatest
quality of music is rhythm. Rhythm
is vibration, and we are also vibra
tion. The quality cannot be stifled in
us, and lives through every genera
Rhythm Makes World Move.
"It is the quality of rhythm which
makes our hearts beat, makes the
world move, and it is. this same qual
ity that makes us respond to the
marching of soldiers, the beating of
the drum, and to the rhythm of music
when we hear it."
Mr. Surette maintains that there is
nothing' so terrible as intellectual
sloth, and "why sink into it?" he
asked. "Why not turn the intelli
gence to music and make it a part of
one's life? It is a study that can
continue as long as there is life."
He cited 'Carlyle's remark about the
three kinds of people who read books,
"those who love adventure," "those
who live on sentiment," and "those
who want to think." He illustrated
the kind, of music each of these kinds
of people liked. The first, music with
a strong beat and lively, pulsating
rhythm principally; the second, as
fond of anything from Thome's "Sim
ple Aveu" and similar types to Cho
pin and Tschaikowsky.
For the third class he recommended
Beethoven and Brahms, and illustrat
ed by excerpts from their symphonies
what the best in music really is.
He advised ever one to sing, and
to continue to sing, and through sing
ing to learn to understand and appre
ciate music. Ho spoke of the music
in the soldiers' camps, in one post of
which he is a member of the. com
mittee, and told how after the soldiers
tired of "Over There" and like
pieces, they were being taught pieces
of better music, such as the "March
of the Me.n of Lorraine," without
notes, and by ear, and they were
learning to know and love them,
To illustrate how easy it is to learn
tosing by car, slips with the words
of a chorale were passed through the
audience, and by playing it through a
few times and asking the audience to
sing after him, in a few moments he
had taught the Fine Arts society this
Mr. Surette made a plea for the vast
amount of deeply human simple music
that "everybody ought to know and
which would help them to learn to
listen to and to understand all music
better. One must work in any art to
become sensitive to it. It is one of
the things which cannot be bought
but must be worked out and can have
its influence upon life only in this
way." IL M. R.
Oil Strikers Lose Out;
Operators Refuse Increase

Halifax, N. S., Dec. 8. The property
loss resulting from the Halifax dis

v ' PUBLIC
Some inside information
for those on the outside.
Some of my professional
brethren have been so solicit
ous of my welfare of late
that they have pointed out to
me that the public is not in
terested in" me, nor in my
ideas on the practice of Den
tistry and that I am injur
ing myself by my "style of advertising."
I feel that I owe it to my friends in return for their
kindness in telling me what the public is NOT interested
in to point out a few things that the people, as a whole,
ARE INTERESTED IN.
Go back six months and recall the prices charged
by first-class dentists, for dental work. Compare those
prices with the prices I have made standard since open
ing this office and you will learn ONE thing the public
IS INTERESTED IN.
' Compare the high-class, artistic, durable dentistry
turned out in this office, under my system of SPECIAL
IZATION, with the best work previously turned out by
your Very best dentists.
Recall, if you can, how many (if any) dentists AC
TUALLY practiced painless dentistry or made any ef
forts to save you suffering.
Examine the crown and bridge work of the past with
the work turned out in my modern laboratory. (If you
have none with which to make comparisons, I will show
, you some I have taken , out of the mouths of Omaha peo
ple.) This office was opened with A PURPOSE AND -A
PROMISE to correct evils and inaugurate reforms In den
tistryand stands as A PERPETUAL GUARANTEE that
high-class dentistry will always be within the reach of
the family of the man of average income.
These are some of the things the public IS INTER
ESTED IN. (
If you would know how "catching" the spirit of re
form is study the files of the newspapers of six months
ago and compare the dental advertising of that day
with the dental advertising of today. If the Advertising
Dentists have made as m,uch improvement in their offices
as they have in their announcements, both they and the
public are to be congratulated. ..

Hudson Offers a New Type
The Touring Limousine
We have just received th'e newest type
Hudson Super-Six. 'It combines all the advan
tages of the Limousine and the Sedan. By
raising the glass partition the driver is sep
arated from the passenger compartment.
With the partition lowered the car is a luxu
rious Sedan which can be driven by the owner
with the same comfort that he would drive a
car1 built especially for the gentleman driver.
With this car the chauffeur can be used with
the same seclusion for the passenger as in the
finest Limousine. A dictaphone establishes
communication between the passenger and
the driver when the car is used as a Limousine.
The rear compartment is heated through the
medium of a radiator in the floor. Every de
tail that practical experience has shown adds
to comfort in the closed car is embodied in
this new Super-Six.
The windows can all be lowered and the
car becomes an airy, delightful, open model.
With the windows closed and the radiator in
use, it becomes as comfortable as a drawing
Provision is made for carrying the luggage
on the roof when the car is used for touring.
It is a light, lively car, equaling in sturdiness
and sprightliness the performance of a power
ful open car. We know of nomodel that so
fittingly meets the wants of those who require
a car suitable for all-year service and which
at will gives the seclusion of the Limousine or
the intimacy of the Sedan.
Being a new model in every particular the
production will necessarily be limited for
some time. We urge an early inspection and
decision to assure early delivery.
