Investigations into the origin of the Baton or stick for beating time which is used nowadays by the conductor of every Large orchestra have brought out the interesting fact t hat the first conductors Baton was a formidable staff about six feet Long which the old time French musician Lull by name who invented it May have used As much intimidate the members of his orchestra As Mark the time. Iii the very oldest orchestras As in chinese orchestras of tile present Day there was conductor in the modern sense. Every Jie former played Aswell As lie could and the Man who played u it on the loudest instruments the Kettle drum for instance marked tile time for the rest. When music became More systematic Ami refined the chief command of the orc Quot a Ltd a Quot Cin the Iii it Wber who was regarded a me most accomplished and skillful. Ile assigned the other members their parts drilled them at rehearsal Anil supervised tile final performance. produce a Good effect it was necessary of course that the musicians should play in time. And the chief of tile orchestra who him of played one instrument was accustomed Mark the beat by stamping on the floor with one foot. For this reason the conductor of an orchestra was at that period called the Ledarius. Afterwards it became customary for him Totive tile time by clapping the fingers of his right hand against the hollow of his left. The Irater of time after Titis fashion was called the Maud actor. Meantime experiments were made in marking the tii Neby striking together shells Aud Bones. The Bones were soon j Given up As instruments he used by j the conductor of an orchestra but they survived As an Independent instrument j boys and negro minstrels a play on tile Bones with great gusto this d a. In the Early part of the seventeenth Century the musician already alluded flu ii by name arose lie found All these instruments of leadership ineffective and in order reduce his perform ers Complete subjection he procured a Stout staff six lot Long. With which lie pounded vigor Ottly on the floor Mark the time. One Day becoming particularly impatient and pounding with Especial vigor Lully struck his foot instead of tile floor with his Baton. The wound gangrene and Lully died from its effect it in igh7. The Baton continued in use through j out the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries but though ii gradually decreased in size. There is evidence that conductors marked the time in any other Way than by pounding upon their music stands or some other hard object. All this pounding must have had an unpleasant effect upon the music and critics and musicians began ridicule the practice. In course of time there i fore we find musical conductors longer thumping upon the floor or their music stands but boating the time entirely in the air. It seems have taken players a very Long time learn that they could get the time As easily by Means of the Eye As by Means of the ear. A youths companion. Never la fur of Ulm. let it Raj Lier stories Are unique my ii time and they not hesitate Tell that Happy t Lii Uhi Oil sex j Imin null it a perpetuate them there Are oldish people who cannot look Back at the evenings spent at the fireside in the old Homestead when we were boys and girls cracking nuts and jokes As the most enjoyable moments of our lives. We who Are now in life s autumn should look it that our youngsters can have a Chance enjoy the one perfect Outing an autumn Nutting Day. A a the Groves were god s first temples. A and even yet Are nearer him than great piles of Brick and Stone with sky piercing Spires. This coast is strangely Barren of Forest nuts but make of for this natural want we can have nearly every edible nut of the world for the planting of the tree seed or Bush. They finely nearly everywhere if a Little care is used in selecting soils Aud exposures. As a Rule the nut bearing Trees should be planted Ingroup and Groves each species Iii a group of several varieties that they May pollinate each other. Especially the chestnuts and this not because they might not pollinate each one its own Flowers if it could but for the reason that they have the male and female Flowers separate on different Points of the tree. The male Flower of any particular tree mature and shed their pollen before the female Flowers Are Ripe receive it. Hence we often see isolated Chestnut Trees for years maturing Only burs with nuts in them. Where several Trees Are together some Early some late All Are fruitful. Nearly All nut bearing Trees have this characteristics. Isolated Hickory and Pecan Trees Bear us a Rule Only occasional crops and then Only when the male Flowers Are in some Way retarded or the wind has blown steadily toward them from some other tree in Bloom. The Walnut family which includes All the hic Kories pecans and walnuts of every kind is quite varied in its nut characteristics habitats and soils. Yet nearly tiny tree of All the species will thrive on nearly every Good soil if Given a Chance. We often make mistakes if we follow nature too closely in tree planting in i he selection of soils. For instance the Pecan is Seldom if Ever found growing from natures planting except on Rich deep Bottom lands and generally on those subject overflow in Winter and Spring. Why simply because nature can nurture the Peculiar nut Aud seedling Only in such locations. The same is True of the soft or White Maple. Yet both these tries can be readily grown by Many a skill on Uplands and they thrive much latter than in swamps. Many Trees have the same peculiarities. Other nut Trees Are oui found growing wild on Uplands. Suet Are generally Squirrel planted. The instinct of the Squirrel teaches it not Bury its Winter store of nuts and acorns in ground liable be covered with ice and water during Tho Winter. The Hazel or properly Filbert of this coast is about the Only nut of the wilds except the Pine nut which is edible. Unfortunately it ripens its nuts in july when the weather is rather too warm for Nutting. Therefore if we would enjoy country Home life we Mast Plant nut bearing tree Saml such is will linear nuts that we can crack in the old Flat Iron and Hammer Way. We want hard Shell almonds and hic Kories Butternuts walnuts pecans Etc. Hard Shell nuts Are As a Rule the sweetest. The largest and finest tree for its age be seen on this coast is an Eastern Black Walnut. The Nati is also a Fine tree. The chestnuts Are All trim and Beautiful. Tile Eastern Chestnut is one of the world s finest Trees. It is a remarkably rapid grower on a Light Rich Well drained warm soil. Tilt Eastern White Walnut is a Beautiful fast growing tree. It is 1k\t hinted Rich deep Loamy soils not Laking kindly stiff clays and and dry locations. The great variety of japanese chestnuts Are mostly dwarfish but very Early and abundant bearers. The French and italian chestnuts take kindly our soils and climates and Are Beautiful As Well As productive of Choice nuts. The Royal Walnut Jugans Regia the Walnut of Europe is the grandest nut bearing tree of the Earth. It thrives finely throughout a wide stretch of this coast. Like the Black Walnut its Wood is of High commercial value. The Primus family gives the almonds the Queen of All nuts. It should lie grown in abundance everywhere. Yet it will never give full satisfaction until we learn the fact that like most other nut insuring Trees it is necessary Plant several varieties near together they May pollinate each others Bowel a Dill ii l out Macli.
