Tlie Ottawa Citizen says editorially today "One cannot but feel that the Can- adian manufacturers have lost a splendid opportunity for declaring their belief in practical patriotism by a somewhat more sympathetic an-, swer at least to' the challenge of the drain Growers and in expressing their willingness lo work for ultimate free trade within the cmpne. It is true that the challenge was flung in their midst during the closing hours of the convention, and equally true that the message was an attempt to "draw them" on a subject upon which, their convictions are well known to be none too favorable. Still it would have meant much to tlie association cognizant as it must'have been oMbc close relationship between Empire unity and Umpire trade, had it shown some sign of that cognizance by word if not by- deed. Whatever may be one's belief con- cerning tariff walls to the south of Canada and tariff barriers at its ports of entry, it can hardly bc doubted that imperial free trade is Page 5 MUSIC holds out a peculiar charm to the people of the nouth coun try. A week ago it was m; privilege to net as adjudicator at tin annual musical festival at Cards ton To say that I was agreeably surprise! with -the work I heard is to put mildly. The towns of Cardaton, Ma gratli and Raymond are keen on inns! cal development. The people there live, talk, and. think of music fron rnoru .till fur Jiilo the night On Friday evening, 2lsi Sentembei iayt, 1 arrived In Cardsion and wen: ilrect to the Assembly Mall which I found crowded to tho dooi-s by eager audience. Tho atmosphere was nusical beyond the shadow of a doubt The voices of young and old inter- mingled with one another and one 'elt at peace with the world for the !J7ie being, for here was an audience surcharged with tho passion 'for nusie. These Mormon folks plished really wonderful things, keep- accom- in view the fact (hat they have Ing not had the advantage of first class training. Nor do they pretend to be the "only pebble on the beach.' H'ight well do they realize they have much to learn. One was profoundly impressed with the quality of tone revealed in the female voices, which stood out in marked contrast, to the male voices, which did not disclose anything attractive In the way of tone. It was a sheer delight, how- ever, In face of certain defects, to sit and ponder over the work of the various competitors. There was the warmest of good feeling between everybody and the attention giveu by the audience to each contestant was of the very best. Where could you find an audience that would sit till one o'clock in the morning and to au host of amateurs competing s was'the ca-je at CardKton and the commercial .ultimate effort of the goes to show plainly how the poop empire.

He sug- gests that everyone should accept a postal note which would be dis- patched upon receiptfcf a doctor's certificate. In case no doctor be employed, Fisher proposes that a government commissioner would then certify whether twins were born. Last year babies were born in the Commonwealth and the prime minister states that he would be glad to see at least absorbed in maternity bonuses or In other words he would like at least one million Mttie Australians to be born dur- ing this year. inn at of necessity he a stronger tie between Canada and the motherland mless the family bond is hut a mat- ier of name and memory. Such action1 would not work toward reciprocity, but rather awav from it. The proposition made was entirely reasonable. Already a nominal pref- ing of the Festival did not conclud until the clock struck twelve and stl the audience remained to the end. Defects in Singing It has occurred to me to point ou the weak spots in the singing of th various competitors at the Cardsto '_ Festival and this I do in the sincer erence of one-third exists. Make this one-half and then by gradual stages eliminate the tariff barrier altogeth- er. It was a fair oner, and one that runs in the line of strongest probabil- hope that my 'remarks may be take kindly by everyoiie. In the first plac tone predominated through th work of the singers. By this, l mea that tlio quality of tone, speciaJI among the female voices, stood ou ity. Never the empire spirit j best. lu the matter of ohserviu stronger than it is today, and unless' the singers wer it should suffer change declining, to- ward a purely national independence and isolation, tins- matter of trade preference must inevitably come more and more to the front. At present the cheers of Canada are for I he navy. In the spirit of im- perial union Canada will contribute j. D. MCGREGOR ESTABLISHING BIG DAIRY FARM.

How to Boll Water Few people know how to cook water. Miu secret is in putting good, fresh vater Into a neat kettle already quite rarm and setting the water io boiling :uickly, and then taking it right off to ise in tea, coffee or other drinks, be- ore it is spoiled. To let it steam, 8im- aud evaporate until the good is all in the atmosphere and the me and iron and dregs left in the is what a good nany people sick, and is worse than o water at all. A critical taste will etect at the first mouthful if the nose as -not already demurred and given rariling, the faintest trace of dead in tea, coffee, porridge and iany other items designed for the tomach. More frequently than other- ise the "breakfast kettle is set boil-j ng with a remnant of yesterday's sup-! ly in it; the coffee urn has been! sithcr wa-sTTed, dried, sunned nor' red; possibly in the interest of a I Sid and mistaken economy some of i estorday's coiToe is "Dolled over" :1 the partakers wonder at their las- tudeand dyspeptic conditions. What- is neglected, the tea kettle and its isociute pots should he thoroughly eansed, dried anil aired every day, id in no case should water that has ood over an hour in pitcher, pail or 2Ule be used for cooking. If people '11 drink tea or coffee let them at, -ast have it as nearly free from pote-1 lous conditions as possible. That ucli benefit may he derived by many people from drinking hot water is not disputed, but the water should be freshly drawn, quickly boiled in a clean and perfect vessel, and immed- iately used.

I preferred the phrasing of the Magrath competitors to that of Cardston and the reason i easily explained. For example om Cardaton ladies' quartette would per sistiin running one phrase into an- other. There was in reality no evi- dence of correct phrasing. Every mus ical composition consists of. a series of yhort sections of- various length; called phrases, and it. Is upon the in- dependence of tlicpe that the intelli- gence of music depends. Phrases are analogous to -sentences of a literary composition, .hist as the intelligent reading of a literary composition de- pends chiefly upon two things, acceu- tration and punctuation, so does mus- ical phrasing depend on the relative strength of the- sounds and upon their connection with or separation from I each other. Scooping from o-ne note I to another should also bo dif-couraa- Better Diction Required In tfco matter'of diction there is also room advancement. Such words I as heaven, ocean, peril and angel, were invariably pronounced with the filial ending of the word destroyed. For instance (be following words were sunk "heaven" ;ts "ocean" as "peril" as "perul" and "angel" as "angul' (short These arc only a few examples which with closer stmiy can oosily bo remedied. General Impressions My Impressions of the Cimlston on the whole were exception- ally favorablo. The people are as has linen already stated, very fond of music, and they are to be warm- ly praised for this. The conductors of tho various choruses ccriainly accom- plished wonderful rosnlls keeping In view the fact, ibat they have not Jmd tht: advantage of much training. 11 would urfjo them to go for word in their excellent musical mission. About the .Male Voices Just a word about the male voices which aro in my judgement the weak part of the choruses. There is a sus- picion lurking In my mind that one or two so-called tenors are injuring their voices by singing tenor puna when us a matter of fact thuy are bar- itones. The timbre or duality of their vulund satisfies me on this point. Sev- eral of the Bingere wore inclined to force the upper voice and that on the note E natural ( space on the treble The bass section of the choirs WUE much better although I should have preferred more sonority and mellowness in the tone. A sys- tem of effective vocalizing would speedily remedy these defilences. Cardston Congress Choir It was my privilege to hear this choir last Sunday afternoon In Card- ston ni the request of Mr. S. New- on, its conductor. The numerical strength of the chorus is some one lundred and twenty-five voices and Mr. Newton tells me that quite forty ter cent of the singers come to re- icarsala from a distance of twenty iiiles. Where else on earth will you ind amateur, singers doing this? was much impressed with the bril- laricy of the tone in the ladies section he sopra-nos particularly being singul- irly beautiful with the contraltos close lehind. Mr. Newton, I notice uses ffhat he calls the "key-note.' For in- in rehearsing the "Gloria in he gets his choir to sing Glo" as a prepatory or key note after rhich the singers .commence to sing. t is quite unnecessary to use a-key' oto in thin faishioir. All that re- quired Is to have the accompanist play the prelude to 'the number being sung and then start right on the beat. The effect is better and the method ds more modern. Mr. Newton is an Indefatig- able conductor and never lets up. He is full of music from his toes up and be has bis own way of doing things. Those Gouth people certainly must be praised for their .interest in musical affairs am! my wish i-s that Lethhridgt will take a leaf out of their book.
