HABITS OF PRACTICE.
Hints Helpful In the Attainment of Vcl
aa4 Instrumental Music.
The average girl works with tho easy
portions of a piece of music. She simply
passes again and again over the easy
spots, always neglecting the difficult
ones till weariness sets in, and the whole
piece is dropped in its unfinished condi
tion. Why not concentrate upon and
master the difficult parts first? The rest
will fall into place, and the result will
bo satisfactory. One way to accomplish
this with a piece that grows more diffi
cult toward the end is to practice it
backward, page by page; first one alone,
then two together, then three, etc. In
this manner tho burden of repetition
falls uM)ii tho heaviest purtions, and on
the final playing through from the first
wonderful results will have been found
to have been accomplished without any
of that repulsion which tho mind fuels
toward ponderous difficulty.
To one who is both a vocal and instru
mental musician the difficulty of keeping
up two such rich and distinct lines of
action is especially great.
Still there aro many ways of uniting
tho two so as to keep both up with com
paratively small expenditure of time. A
writer in Tho Musical Courier makes
these suggestions: Finger exercise may
be made vocal exorcise as well. With
care and attention both finger and throat
muscles may be drilled at once without
doing harm to either. Rest may be had
from heavy instrumental work by a vo
cal exercise and vice versa, and by sep
arating difficulties those of each depart
ment may bo united for the good of tho
In playing one's own accompaniment,
for example, there is much time and vi
tality wasted by playing and singing to
gether at sight Ijefore the technical diffi
culties of either are overcome or any
idea of the meaning of the composition
is in the mind.
Time, words and accompaniment
should bo learned Independently and
made individually perfect before being
united. First Study the air alone, with
a view to pure tone production and cor
rect melody. When this is assured with
out an instrument, memorise or at least
become thoroughly familiar with the
words. They are never difficult most
of them come without effort. Next unite
to them their proper dramatic action.
They are for the most part a senseless
blur or mechanical recitation for lack of
. Next learn the accompaniment thor
oughlywhich means thoroughly. In
uniting do not attempt all at once. Play
the accompaniment, reading the melody;
next speak the words in connection with
tho playing; next sing the syllable "la''
with tho accompaniment; lastly, unito
accompaniment, words and song. Tho
result will be astonishing to the most in
different. It makes a travesty on a song
to rush into it unprepared.
Reading part songs separately is ex
cellent practice in uniting melody and
accompaniment, and giving a compre
hensiveness of grasp that is invaluable.
Here a knowledge of chords and keys is
again found of most value.

Recipe For Suet I'mldlne;.
Here is a suet pudding, which may be
made with dried or fresh huckleberries,
blackberries or other small fruit, or of
course raisins or Zanto currants. Some
economical housewives still practice the
plan of using chopped dried apples stow
ed up in molasses. One cupful suet, a
cupful sugar, 2 beaten eggs, a pint bread
crumbs, a pint fresh fruit. Steam in a
mold two hours. If dried fruit is used
soak it over night in a little water.
