Let it never be forgotten that singing
is the foundation of all musical educa
tion. The pianist who sings ll more like

easier for hiia to transpose; it will he

harmony, ami unless he is a singer, at
least in his imagination, counterpoint

Wiiat u:ter..'st is there in a fugue for

last 1 inu free tu reveal a lerrlble secret ot
ajur room which has been a burden tC
myself and 10 Other men unless they, like
Jeluni, have passed over the river.
in August, f'S, there was a murder
trial iu Mobile, which perhaps tho older
Oltiaana of that city still remember.
1 was the third juror OUOtan. Of jurors
No. 1 and 2 I remember but little, except
that they were both elderly men and well
to do citixeus of the county.
Jurors No. 4, 5 und 0 were merchants ol
the city, at leust two were merehuuts and
one u clerk.
Alter Juror No. 0 was told to pass into
tho jury box the court clerk called the
name ot "Emanuel Jetbru."
I believe every one in the courtroom
was struck with the OtaU'l appeaMMM.
He walked briskly and iu a peculiarly
uervous manner Which could not fail to
attract attention. He nusweivd the so
licitor's questions eagerly. In fait, one
Urns his answer cams before the question
was concluded,
The solicitor said: " Prisoner, look on
the juror. Juror, look on the prisoner,"
and he probably expected the defense to
strike, but the defense did not.
Juror No. 7 was told to take his seat in
the box. His residence as given in the
jury list us Bayou la Hutre, and he
evidently cams from a Very Secluded plate
on the coast.
The rest of that day was taken up in
securing the other (ve jurors,
The next morning the examination of
witnesses begau. The evidence waa short,
and it was conclusive.
Kail lieidct inau, a German youth cm-piovi-U
on u truck garden near the city,
was charged with murdering his employer
b splitting up..u his hiad with uu ax.
tic. ami the gaVdsher had lived uloiie.
One morning the boj nuns into the city,
and unite drinking tree!) hud shown a
IsVge sum of mbney. A day later the gar
drUOT W8S found l)iltg dead upon the QOOI
uf a room ln bis nousei with the bloody
ax, which had dune the work. Mug near
The German youth was arrested, with
suinu of the money still iu his possession.
There was proof that the boy and the ijar-deiK-r
had been heard quarreling about an
Increase in Wanes, which the boy had
asked for and did not get.
To offset this strong array of circum
stantial evidence there was nuthiug but
the prisoner's statement, very badly told
by an interpreter. He denied kuovwn
anything of thu killiug aud sulii tho mon
ey ho had was given hnu b) a niau tho
night before a a. bribe to leave his tin
plvyer, that Lo knew nothing ot the kill
ing or who did it.
When e reached tho Jury room, there
settned bat two things to do elect u tore
man and bring in a Verdict of guilty.
The lirst He did with little trouble.
Then we took u ballot, merel) us a mat
ter of form. 1 counted the vote, und it
stood: For guilty, 11; for acquittal, I.
who is the twelfth gentleman who
docs not know murder when he sees it?"
one of the jurors asked sarcastically.
"I am," cume the reply, calmly spoken
b juror No. 7 Emanuel Jethro.
Then we begun to argue tho case with
him. He looked out the w indow most of
the time and made no reply to any of our
telling arguments. Finally he w as asked
if he had uuy reason to advance for voting
as he did.
"None at all," he replied quietly, "ex
cept that 1 don't wish to see uu innocent
man hanged. '' '
There w ere some more conviui incj argu
ments by the 11, and we tooli another
vote: For murder, 11; for acquittal, I.
And that was the way tho vote stood
next morning after breakfast.
We grew desperate. Finally the whole
manner of Jethro changed, and he exclaim
ed excited i
'If each of you will take a solemn outh
before the God that made you not tore
Veal what I tell you until 1 am dead, 1
w 111 give you the reason w by I do not agree
to a verdict of guilty."
After some consultation and glanceaat
the clock, which show ed that the hour for
reconvening of court eral at baud, we, one
at a time, took the oath.
In low, half whispered tones the juror
told his secret.
Fifteen minutes later we went into the
courtroom with a verdict of "not guilty."
I remember distinctly the consternation
on the judge's face and the look of dis
gust on that of the solicitor.
The newspapers criticised us severely
I aud went so far as to mite editorials on
account of a failure of the courts to ade
j qiiately punish those detected iu the com
mission of crime.
Well, Emanuel Jethro is dead, und I be
lieve I am now unsolved from the oath he
I made us take.
"That Ijermtm boy did not kill that old
man, he told us In his dry, husky voice.
"On the night before the murder a man
met him and paid hiui to leave the farm
early next morning gave him a large roll
of money which w as enough to tempt him
to give up his situation. Arid the man
who did this watched the boy as he left
next morning and slipped into the room
and killed tho old gardener as he was pie
paring to rise killed him to pay a debt
that only his blood could w ipe out.
' And. gentlemen, ' ' he concluded, "I am
the murderer."
We looked upon the man's ashy fare i
the words fell from his lis, und tAi h of
us knew the atoiy waj true. Atlanta

The young folks all delight to take that
famous " Trip Around the World" by
means of the handsome and instructive
Portfolio of Photographs showing noted
scenes and picturesque spots in all parts
of the globe we inhabit. It is an educa
tion in itself; this album. Don't fail to
have it, if you haven't it now. It will be
a lasting treat. Just now, in particular,
see the views it gives of Hawaii, the land
where Oueen Lil ruled. Two coupons and
cents in cash will secure this treasure.
We've had to do it. The demand was too
great. Ve've had to make THREE offers
where we though two, surely, would be
enough. But the public wouldn't be satisfied.
So we've added the Wanamaker series, and
continue the other two. You need all three,
to be really in the swim. Each one is better
than the one before it; at least, that's what
you think. Better order early it you want
a prompt reply. All the various parts are
going like hot cakes.
