MUSIC in tlie city churches this year occulted a very prominent place In the var- ious religious exercises. There was !a marked improvement In the work I of every choir AS compared to last year and this means a great deal for 1 (ho future. .1 visited one or two of tho services on Christinas Day and was deeply i: rossed with tho Blng- j of the and congregations. One docs not wish to ailirm that the hurch should by converted into a concert hall, but it may be stated that tho time lias arrived when the choirmaster must be seriously con- sidered in hi? alms towards making tho musical survico of the church more effective. The minister now-a- rtnya looks for a groat deal of help from his choir director as unless tho music is arranged with a View to fit- ting in perfectly with the character of the service, it is liable to become as mere brass and tinkling cymbals. The members of a choir invariably rill take an interest in the musical of the church if they arc en- couraged by the officials and congrc-; Cation, it sometime happens that the poor choirmaster has to do all the encouraging as the congregation at times are apt to look upon the choir as something unworthy of much con- sideration. Some congregations ex- pect a year music for but that day hag long since passed. Conditions in this western country are vastly different from those in the east where it is an easy matter to get hold of voluntary singers, yes even excellent soloists, who arc will- ing to sing for the love of tho thing. I'ho paid soloist must be considered of iho views of some re- igious cranks who don't believe in .ho practice. To make the service )f tho churches at the present day thoroughly effective there must bo the comblimtltii of tho minister and tho choirmaster. Doth officials must work hand iu hund for the uplifting of the backslider and tho gathering togeth- er of those who sometimes rarely see! the inside of a church. Any church without tv refined musical service must always find itself seriously hiun-i pered. 1 sincerely trust that Leth- brldge church-going people (there j should be hundreds more) will make it a point to encourage those in charge of the musical welfare of tho church. Next Christmas season I would like to see members of the various choirs combine in producing the "Messiah" or at least portions of it. It would prove of everlasting benefit to those who would take part. There Is undance of choral talent in the city but it requires developing.

They run on to what they consider a little irregularity'in his past life, at least to make a sensational story, through the tales of a certain Dr. Chitwood, who has fallen to almost the lowest levels through the use of cocaine. In order to give it credence they must get the whole story, and the "gang" use every effort, by bribery, intimida- tion, and "third degree" methods to obtain from the doctor, the prized in- formation, but the old doctor realiz- ing what a friend young Gregory has been to him, and is already ashamed of the trouble he had caused, commits suicide in the presence of the "gang" leader, considering that the only way the secret will be The author, with wonderful know- ledge of the stage, has not subordinat- ed drama for but has woven an absorbing story of political intrigue into a theme of consistent domestic life, that excels anything that has heretofore been produced.
