A misplaced comma has got a
Greelev county (Kan.) paper into a
peck of trouble. The journal in
question recently published an item
in which the following sentence oc
curred : "Two young men from
Leoti went with their girls to Tri

and as soon as they left, the girls
got drunk." The comma belonged
after the "girls," and the latter arc
making it hot for the editor.

county, its abundant supply of pun
water and perfect sewerage, the reg

ey, must lie an evict judge ni dis
tance. As a rule Burners who are prac
ticed in that art know what is need
ed. They acquire an instinctive
sense of the force of sound in plat
form performances; vet all have to
undergo some training liefore fneimj
a Graphophone. They must lie
taught how to pose the head,. Many
records are spoiled in training.
furthermore, the artist inusl be
in perfect voice; there must be no
trace of hoarseness, no nasal quality,
or other delect or the record is u-e-Iess.
The machine has been brought
to such a degree ot perfection that
it makes note of every slightest
sound, or lack of sound. A singer
before an audience may excuse his
hoarseness, and find sympathy; the
audience will take his best and,
probably enjoy it in some degree.
But the ( Iraphophone accepts no ex
cuses. It gives back the hoarseness
as it hears if. The reproduction is
rediculous and entirely marred. A
record that is flawed must he thrown
away. On the other hand, the ex
cellences of music are reproduced in
their degree. If the poor singing, is
rediculous the good is given back
with no loss of richness or beauty of
tone, or fineness of phrasing.
Various is, the compensation of
(Jraphophone singers, but all, even
the poorest, are well paid. The fact
is no Mor singer need apply here.
The Graphophone manufacturers
carry a staff of men and women on
their books, but all must lie trained
in the art of voice expression. An
untrained singer would spoil too
many records, and his lx'st would
not be worth much in graphophone

Such a record is one to lie proud ol
and makes a lining close to the Cen

The school maintains, by charter

old Blonmsburg Literary Institute,

Prices are extremely low consid

they were lower, we do not see how
a faculty like the one found at
Bloomsburg could be maintained.
The faculty is the school. Let no

before deciding to go elsewhere.
