ODE GOOD AMATEUR MUSICIANS.
Orchestral Players Should Band Themselves
THE PEACTICE OP HIGH-CLASS MUSIC
What musical Pittsburg cow most keenly
needs is an orchestra. We hare in onr
theaters several "orchestras," bv courtesy,
counting ten or a dozen men apiece; there
are two or three "orchestras" chiefly occu
pied in supplying from three to ten players
for dances and for occasions where music is
incidental in which latter class may iairly
be included the so-called summer-night
concert, at which, though nearly a score
of players and a solo singer or two are
engaged, the terpsichorean wind-up seems
to be the ultimate object to most of those
who attend. This is about the sum total of
professional activity in the orchestral direc
tion. Of amateur "orchestras" we have
three or four, each counting some 20 or 25
players, including a fen professionals for
the less grateful instruments. At the head
of this amateur list stands the Mozart Club's
orchestral department, which at some con
certs musters 30 or 33 instruments.
But Pittsburg has yet no orchestra at all
worthy the name. In each of the organi
zations alluded to valuable as each is in
its place and as far as it goes there is
lacking some one or more ot the elements
absolutely esential to a true orchestra.
Some 40 instruments, at the very least,
must be had for even the less
elaborate scores; Berlioz and Wagner occa
sionally demand a hundred or more.
Each player must possess a satisfactorily
thorough mastery over his instrument as
well as experience in ensemble playing in
the higher class of music There must be a
conductor accustomed to the practical duties
of his post, conversant with the standard
orchestral works and well enough acquaint
ed with the nature, range, etc., of each in
strument to be able to adapt or arrange
music for his particular force of players.
There must also be regular rehearsals of
some frequency at which the presence of
every plaver is compulsory.
These elements are all "must be's;" each
and every one of them is indispensable to an
orchestra, properly so-called. Such an or
ganization on some permanent basis is the
prime need oi the day in the musical life of
It can never be formed, as suggested by
an esteemed local weekly, by drawing from
the amateur organizations. While there
may be some lew amateur players who
would be in some respects quite as compe
tent as most of our professionals, yet even
these could not be depended on for absolute
regularity at rehearsals or to be properly
subject to the rigid discipline so
essential in an orchestra. These amateurs'
work has been and is of the greatest value
in our public musical progress; but this lies
in the awakening of interest and apprecia
tion for orchestral music among themselves
and their friends, far more than in training
themselves as permanent and active factor
in public orchestral concerts of the higher 1
.class, xhe latter Kind ot worK is and must
be professional. Volunteers did inestimable
service in the sudden crisis at Johnstown;
but when it comes to organizing the relief
work permanently other material must in
the nature of things be sought.
No, the needed orchestra cannot be per
manently and effectively constituted except
from professional ranks. In this cit even
most pro'essionals must gain needed ex
perience in the regular rehearsal of high
class music in full score before they can

fairly be deemed fit members of a true or
chestra. No man who spends his time play
ing dance tunes and potpourris, and these
only in the most rudimentary scoring, is
able to step off-hand into a good, complete
orchestra and do justice to his part.
Here lies the next step ahead. And it is
now time for it to be taken. The orchestral
players of this cits may now feel assured
that it will be worth their while to band
themselves together fcr their own practice
and improvement in hich class ensemble
work. The need of a good, complete or
chestra is now more generally realized than
ever before; the public will be ready, itis
confidently believed, to support such an or
ganization just as soon as the players can
perfect themselves individually and effect
an organization competent for the purpose.
The public will not move in the matter.
The initiative must be taken by the profes
sional players themselves.
This is the immediate practical dnty of
the Allegheny County Musicians' Union,
in which now are gathered most of the play
ers competent for this work. The leaders of
that body have the matter under earnest
consideration, and it is to be strongly hoped
that actual steps in this direction will at
once be taken.
In the current Etude Mr. Edward Baxter
Perry, the well remembered pianist and
musical writer, makes a strong appeal
against the frivolity and dilletantism that
constantly crops out in speaking of music.
The following portions of his article, in par
ticular, deserve earnest consideration from
It would be impossible to account for lho
state or affairs described above, save upon the
theory that tbe public, to a great extent, and.
It is to be regretted, too many professional
musicians, as well, seek or recognize in music
onlva sensuous pleasure for tbe ear. To them
a melody, a succession of harmonies, is agree
able or disagreeable to tbe auditory nerve, just
as a pudding sauce is pleasant or otherwise to
the palate: and this may, perhaps, account for
the light esteem in which music and musicians
have been so generally held in the past.
If a musician admits himself to be only a
minister to sensuous pleasure, his lofty voca
tion sinks at once, and, perforce, to tbe level of
tbe pastrv cook. Other, avoiding this flagrant
rror, pride themselves npon finding in music a
miloly intellectual satisfaction in following the
intricacies and discovering the smme tries of
form; a pleasure exactly similar to and anala
gous ith that of a young girl in tracing the de
sign of an elaborate piece of embroidery. All
heed is paid by the one class to the
phvsical, by the other to the mental at
tributes of music, regardless that it has a
psychical side as well. Now, I maintain that
sound and form no more make up the whole of
music than do meter and versification make
up the whole oi poetry. I argue the existence
of an immortal soul within the tenement of
tones or words. Any composition which does
not appeal either to the imagination or the
emotions, which addresses the senses and the
intellect solely, I hold to be a bastard, having
right neither to the name of music nor kinship
with the legitimate members of that exalted
family. It is tbe incarnate emotion witbm tbe
tonal form which gives it at once its life princi
ple and its musical rank. That tbe form in
uhlcb tbe composer chooses ts materialize his
quickened creations should be one of beauty,
is an axiom beyond dispute, is but compliance
wiib tbe laws of technical symmetry which
rightfully govern his art, but no sensuous
bcaun, no symmetry of outline, can save a
vacant or feebly animated organism from ulti
Tbe true endeavor of tbe music student or
tbe music lover sbould be to stimulate and de
velop in himself, as far as possible, a discrim
inating insight into the vital principles of bis
art, the power to perceive tbe life beneath tbe
shell, the soul within its symmetrical form, to
distinguish and analyze for himself and others
the different phases of emotion which it
awakens, to follow tbe subtle train ot thought
or fancy which it suggests; thus making of
art's temple, not a banqueting hall for the in
dulgence of sensuous pleasure but a sanctuary
for soul elevation, for mind and heart training,
a place from which he shall come forth daily
nobler and wiser.

cooks with the visitor's inspection, and aft
erward brought to them to have a taste. "It
is delicious," the ladies cried, as they tasted
the soup, and as the girls flitted round in
their gay attire, looking very different from
the "Bridget" of our memory, one lady
said: "What a tendency to elevate laborin

Prom the Bellefield school was a class of
15 girls composed entirely from the best

They took hold of it with a vigor. The
whole class attended regularly in a body,
and the only one that did so, with the ex
ception of one day when they were detained
for rehearsal for their school exhibition.
One prominent lady remarked: "I never
think of making biscuits now; my daughter
does that." ,

one who attended the Teachers' Academy
yesterday. What made it lively is a secret
to the outsider. Two important resolutions
were passed which will decapitate many of
the present members. They are as follows:
That the names of all members who are in
arrears for one year's institute dues shall be'
erased from the list of active membership;
second, the names of all members who have
not attended a meeting ot tne acaaemv mis

the active, retired and deceased members
was read, leaving an active enrollment of
273. The board of supervisors will present

Beaders of Thk Dispatch who desire
information on subjects relating to Indus
trial development and progress in mechani
cal, civil and electrical engineering and the
sciences can have their queries answered
through this column.
The Spirttdlia, published by '. Heron in
the sixteenth century, contained an ex
posure of'many of the frauds of the Egyptian
hierarchy. In this work will be found a
description of a device tor the automatic
dispensing of the purifying water by the
worshipers on their entrance to the temple.
By a strange coincidence five drachma:
were required to operate the apparatus. It
appears that heathen priests made water for
ablution a source ot revenue. The vessel
containing lustral water was not always
open for public use, free of charge, but
closed, and, like a child's money box, pro
vided with a slit at the top through which
a certain sum of money was to be put be
fore the donor could receive any of the puri
fying contents. The device is a very neat
specimen of religious ingenuity, and the
more so since it required no attending
minister to keep it in play. It consisted of
a vase which contained at one of its inner
sides a cylindrical vessel of water. A small
tube attached to the bottom is continued
through the sides of the vase, where the
liquid was discharged. The inner orifice
of the tube was formed into the seat
of a valve, the plug of which was fixed on
the lower end of the perpendicular rod,
whose upper end was connected by a bolt to
the horizontal lever or vibrating beam.
One end of this is spread out into a flat disk,
and so arranged as to receive on its surface
everything dropped through the slit. The
lever turns on a pin or fulcrum very much
like a pump handle. As the weight ot the
rod kept the lever closed while nothing
rested on the broad end of the lever, no
liquid could escape; but if a number of
coins of sufficient weight were dropped
through tne s.it in tne im ot
the. vase upon the end of the lever, the
valve would then be opened and a portion
of the liquid would flow out. Only a small
quantity wonld escape, for as the iever be
came inclined from its horizontal position
the pieces of money would slide off into the
mass accumulated below, and the efflux
would as quickly be stopped; the apparatus
would then be ready to supply tne next cus
tomer on the same terms. This most ex
cellent apparatus has just been described in
the Electrical World by the distinguished
physicist, Prof. E. J. Houston.
Care of the Eye.
Inconsequence of the increase of affec
tions of the eye, a specialist has recently
formulated the following rnles to he ob
served in the care of the eyes for school
work: A comfortable temperature, and es
pecially let the feet be dry and warm; good
ventilation; clothing at the neck loose; the
same as regards the rest of the body; posture
erect, never read lying down or stooping;
little study before breakfast, or directly aft
er a hearty meal: none at all at twilight or
late at night; great caution about study after

jects in front of the scholar; light coming
from the left hand, or felt and rear; under
some circumstances from the front; book
held at right angles to tbe line of sight, or
nearly so; frequent rest by looking up; dis
tance of book from eye about 15 inches. The
usual indication of strain is redness of the
rim of the eyelid, betokening a congested
state of the inner surface, which may be ac
companied with some pain. When the eye
tires easily, rest is not the proper remedy,
but the use of glasses of sufficient power to
aid in accommodating the eye to vision.
The Canals of Mars.
Through the agency of the Lick tele
scope, the surface 'of the planet Mars has
been mapped out with additional clearness.
The canals, which can be very plainly seen,
lie in the torrid and warmer portions of
tbe temperate zone, and extend from the
Northern to the Southern Ocean. They
are, in general, 2,000 or 3,000 miles in
length and over 30 miles in breadth. Thev
are generally arranged in pairs 200 or 300
miles apart, and so exactly parallel that
usually no deviation can be detected. They
cut up the continent surface so there is no
spot more than 400 miles distant from one
ot these markings. There is still much
surmise as to whether these assumed canals
are artificial or natural. It is argued that
they cannot be artificial, because of their
great width, but, on the other hand, it is
equally inconceivable that the forces of
nature could, by the laws of accident, have
constructed such an intricate system of
markings and observed an equal width in
every case. The late Prof. Proctor sug
gested that the canals are the diffracted
images oi rivers, produced by mists which
hang over the river beds.
An insanity specialist, in a recent conver
sation as to the number of young men and
women at present in asylums from the use of
opium, morphine, cocaine and kindred nar
cotics, stated that the subject had given him
more trouble than all other forms of insanity
combined. He said that among his patients
were those whose minds had become unbal
anced through drink, family afflictions, busi
ness losses, and from other causes, but the
worst cases were those whose minds were
destroyed through the use of narcotics. .The
number of parents from this cause is rapidly
increasing, and there have been' more men
and women committed during the past six
months suffering from dementia occasioned
by drugs than there were from the same cause
during the ten previous years. It is beyond
question that narcotics are a more prolihc
source ot insanity than all other causes com
bined. Ventilation of Public Buildings.
' Principal among tbe causes of fainting at
tacks in popular churches and other places
of public meeting are overheating and im
purity of atmosphere. Both are to a great
extent preventable, but, though some suc
cess has been gained in the way of preven
tion, much remains to be done before the
air in our large assembly rooms can be re
garded as pure enough to meet the require
ments of a large audience. The introduc
tion of the electric light has brought some
relief, and the purifying effect of artificial
ventilation, as represented ny the -fan sys
tem and the heated exit flue is quite ap
preciable. Tnere Is still, however, a wide
field open, and the inventor of a perfect
system of ventilation for public buildings
will not only be a public benefactor, but
should also reap a very substantial reward.
Steel Boats From One Sheet. '
It is well known that ships' boats suffer
from being slung1 up at the davits and kept
there for lengthy periods exposed to the
weather. It not infrequently happens that
when in harbor and it may be at sea in a
case ot emergency a boat which has been
for some time exposed to such deteriorating
influence is lowered into tbe waiter, it is
found to be leaky. Ships' boats hanging at

the davits are also in danger of being
smashed by seas breaking on board. In
order to meet the loss and danger arising
from such conditions, it is proposed to con
struct boats of steel, and what is still more
novel, out of single plates, and a company
is being formed to carry on the manufacture.
Improvements In Generating; Steam.
It is said that a new method of generating
steam has met with remarkable success in
England. The invention is adaptable to
any ordinary Cornish, Lancashire or marine
boiler. The apparatus lor perfecting the
comousuon consists oi an air tuoe placed on
tbe floor of the furnace, perforated on each
side, in communication at the outer end
with a main air conduit, and at the
inner end with a hot-air receiver, or air
diflusing pipes, where the air .becomes
highly heated, and delivered by a large
number of jets into the escaping gases from
the fuel chamber. The air is obtained by
means ota fan driven by a small engine.
Origin ol Natural Soap mines.
The natural soap mines of Owens "Lake,
Cal., are accounted for by the following
theoryf The water of the lake contains a
strong solntion of borax and soda. In these
waters there breeds a grub that becomes a
fly. The flies die in the water and drift
ashore, covering the ground to the depth of
a foot or more. The oily substance ot the
flies blends with the borax and soda, and
the result is a layer of pure soap. These
strata, repeated from year to year, form the
soap mines, where large forces of men are
now employed. This theory, as the Italians
say, "if not true, is well found."
New Use of Glycerine.
Carpenters and other tool users who keep
up with the times now use a mixture of
glycerine instead of oil for sharpening their
edge tools. Oil, as it is well known, thick
ens and smears the stone. The glycerine
may be mixed with spirits in greater or less
proportion, according as the tools to be
sharpened are fine or coarse. For the aver
age blade two parts of glycerine to one of
spirits will suffice.
Mntons in Berlin.
Three thousand masons in Berlin recently
went on a strike, asking that nine hours
constitute a day's work, in which they also
ask for 30 minutes for breakfast, 30 min
utes for dinner and an hour for supper. This
will sound odd to American workmen who,
going to work at 7 o'clockln the morning,
eat their breakfast before starting, carry
their dinner in a pail, and get their supper
after quitting their work at 6 o'clock in the
