sLS WE have had Several re
quests for a reprint of the
folldw ing, story which . we
ywrote the first year we were
a musical editor, we have
finally searched it out and
revised it somewhat in order to have
Jt really up to date.'
Once upon a time in the outskirts of
i city somewhere in the land of music
:here started a game of Hare and
Hound, in which four boys Sam,
Andy, Ted and Bob took part. Sam
was the Hare. He ran along a street
for some distance, dropped a small
piece of paper, and then turned into
the thick shrubbery which lined the
side of it. He hovered near the street
irntil he saw each of the Hounds get
a start. As soon as this was assured
' he made a detour, crossed a vacant
lot and dodged behind' sorac'houses
and sheds, ran through several cross
" streets and then emerged again upon
the main thoroughfare. This he no
sooner reached than he left again to
. run through a shady lane, which a
vshort distance away led him out into
the open country, where the winding
. brown roadway looked like a ribbon
stretched across the lovely green land-
. scape. He ran on for miles, some
times upon this road, and sometimes
digressing into the cool green wood
at the left of it, or to follow a path
across, a meadow, past a farm house
and back to the road, and having a
tine time. But once more the road is
becoming a street, and the houses
scattered about show that he is ap
proaching a center ot civilization,
' In the meantime, what of the
Hounds? - Each was allowed to start
SO yards behind the other. Andy, the
first "one, came to the spot where the
-: paper showed the Hare had left the
road. HeMooked about, but could see
no sign of the Hare, then turned and
ran swiftly lin another direction. The
other two. Ted next, and Bob, the
last, when they carne to the same
spot, each in his turn also left the
street, and chose his own path, with
the hope that they would soon see
the Hare ahead of them.
After some time, however, Andy
sights Sam ahead in the roadway.
With a shout he runs out upon it only
to discover that the Hare has dodged
from sight. The other two come to
the road as rapidly as they are able,
each to be disappointed in turn.
On and on goes the race. The three
Hounds pursue the same general di
rection as the Hare. Sometimes they.
. lose the "scent," and two different
times, Bob stands still to look ahead,
sooner than to lose his time in a use-
.But gradually they have gained
upon the Hare. He glances back and
sees that further dodging is impos
sible. His only chance now is to reach
the city limits before his pursuers.
He takes again to the smooth road.
Sodo they. Instead of being SO yards
' apart, the runners are separated now
only by 20 yards, and now by but 10.
The yards are being reduced to feet.
Already Ted can feel Bob's hot breath
upon his cheek, and Andy can almost
touch Sam's shoulder. They strain
every muscle, and as Sam, the Hare,
panting, reaches the city lrhiits, the
other-'three are upon him, and to
gether, the four1 plunge over the
boundary line yrhich has made their
. Now during this race, there was a
merry crowd of Uninitiated out enjoy
ing the fresh airrThey were trundling
in a basket beneath a large balloon
like those swinging above the fort, and
viewing the landscape through their
telescope. They had seen the boys
making ready, and had followed the
whole race from start to finish.. They
were much mystified, suspected enemy
plots, and begged the pilot to tell them
what it meant. He frankly admitted
that he did not know, Put said he
would take them to see his" friends the
Crazy. Musician, who was very 'wise
and knew everything.
The Crazv Musician heard the
. story and then replied: "What you
have just described to me is known
in music as a fugue, and is considered
as a flight rather thaji a race. The
boys, Sam, Andy, Ted and Bob, are
really the four voices, soprano, alfo,
tenor and bass. When the first one
started alone down the street in that
way, . he announced the subject, or,
rather, that first little sprint was on
the main tune of the piece. When
he ran parallel to the road while he
next boy started, life merely an
nounced the countersubject. Each one
of the others in his turn sang the
. same first tune or ran upon the same
road, until they came to the place
where the Hare had left it. When
they had all done it, that completed
the Exposition of it. Where the
Hare made his- detour, they all ran
in their own paths that is what is
called the first Episode. They re
turned to the rflaSn road for a few
minutes, you say. Well, that is where
they got back to the main tune fof a
' brief time, and is known as the Coun
ter Exposition, and where the Hare
led. the chase through the lane and
out into the open country, he really
led the fugue through the Second
Episode and into the Middle Section.
Here, 'of course, each went his own
way in his attempt to overtake and
pursue, but always in the same gen
eral direction. Every once in a while
it was but natural that they sHould
emerge upon the main tune, and where
, your Bob stood still, he had to, be
cause he was only the bass, doing a
Pedal Point. ' '
"As tHey gradually came to the out
skirts of, the city,' they were coming
bark to the main tune in the same
key in which it was first presented.
As each voice gained on the other,
and the Principal Melody sounded out
a shorter distance apartf until the
parts sometimes overlapped, that is
the Stretto, and very soon after that
it is finished."
. The Uninitiated were impressed- "I
couldrt't follow each one of them all
the time,'' complained one'I couldn't
tell where they were."
. The Crazy Musician smiled. "That
comes with fanrrliarity with this sort
of a game," he saif. "In a fugue, if
you can always keep a weather eye,
weather ear, I should say, out for the
principal melody, and watch how the
diifererir voices appear in it, and leave
it, the same as your facers appeared,
in the road, even if you don't know
much about it,' you will have a good
time." '
"Are they all alike?" asked another.
"Same general rules," said the
Crazy Musician. "Some are; fast,
some slow, some dignified and some
gay. "Sometimes they sing their tune
upside down and sometimes their
composers make them -shorter or
longer." '
' And as there were no more ques
tions to be asked, they all went out
side and departed for their homes,
after agreeing' that they thought the
Crazy Musician must be crazier than
ever. j
The followingis from the "Art of
Listening, by Howard Wells:
"The average listener at a sym
phony concert has an emotional en
joyment and a generaljmpression of
hearing a great work, but the intelli
gent following of great orchestral
works is left to the chosen few. Even
a person who has studied the con
struction of a symphony and is able
to explain its forrfl and harmonic
scheme may not be able to follow it
well by sound.
'The performance of a musical work
passes so 'rapidly that our sense of
hearing must be trained to be so
alert that we can realize the structure
of the composition, the emotional con
text, the variety of tone and rhythm,
besides hearing and appreciating the
jliterpreation as it passes by. This re
quires great quickness of thought and
considerable retentiveness of memory.
These faculties are developed only by
"T-he lack of special training in the,,
art of listening is not only a great
detriment to the concert-ftoer, but is
a decided drawback to the music stu
dent in his development. If the train
ing of his musical hearing had begun
with his first lesson and had been
6arried along regularly and systemat
ically as an integral part of his musical
work, he would gradually have ac-
auired the ability to hear himself, and
have greatly increased his power of
self-criticism, which is a highly mi
portant factor in musical advance

SO varied are the names attached

really, truly such a beautiful shade,
that it has gained a permanent place
on my list of words. Jt was affixed

One of the real novelties I've seen

about whom your mother knows a great deal
and of whose familiea aha is sure,, then she
may permit you an occasional excursion to
theator or concert. But It won't hurt you
to wait a year or two. Actually It would be
better for you to be escorted by a fine boy
than to' roam around with a crowd of girls.
