P®252S252S?S25ESHSg5ES2^ LITTLE WALKS ABOUT BOSTON msaaszsaBK BY WILLIAM JUSTIN MANN If old ScToogV could only have heard those blind singers at Jordan Hall last Monday evening there would have been no need of Marley’s ghost or of the spirits of Christmas past and Christmas present to make him feel like saying “Merry Christmas!’’ to everyone he met. Will you tell me why it is that our hearts are so softened by the music of those singers and that we oatch from them the real Christmas feeling? Perhaps Tiny Tim can best answer that question for us. You remember how Bob Cratchlt brought him honrie on his shoulder from the Christmas service and of what the child said on the way. “He told me,’’ said Boh. “that he hoped the people saw him in the church, because he was a cripple, and it might be pleasant to them to remember upon Christmas Day who made lame beggars walk and blind men see.” But I know that the Perkins Institution choir would wish to be judged DAME,STODDARD CO.

Mr. Gordon extends his invitation through the Post, the newsboys applauding and whistling, which is their highest form of expressing satisfaction. Mr. Neilan has delved into Poe for his “thriller,’’ without which no movie Is compl«tP< there will hardly be sufficient of the newsies familiar with “The Pit and the Pendulum” to ffnd the thrill a bromide. “Dinty” has two pals who certainly stick through thick and Ihin. It is hardly likely that their prototypea can be found among Boston newsies for one is a little Ace of Spades, while the other is a Chinese lad. But at the end of the picture all three, wdth the little Chinaman’s sister, are adopted by the judge and live happily ever after, the p probability' being that “Dinty” sold out" his highly profitable “stand” to his enemy, “Muggsy,” at a handsome profit.

One of those who were present as listeners to that programme of Christmas music said to me this morning: “If I had paid $2 for a ;ticket to a concert like that I should have felt more than satisfied.” It is not difficult to find one of the reasons for the excellence of that choir. Mu.sic is emphasized to an unusual degree in the training of those iJiiplls. It is one of their hopeful means of future employment and one of their chief avenues of pleasure. They are drilled together day after day, month after month and year after year. The result is a unity In their performance ^which is rarely to be found elsewhere. Of the work of Mr. Gardiner, the director; of Miss Gustaf.son, the; of me assisting soloists and of the others who co-operated with them high w’ords of praise were heard on every .^ide. Two of the soloists were graduate.«* of. the school. One of them was Antonio Martone, the tenor, concerning whom I heard the expression, “What a wonderful voice,” more than once. Miss Laura Noonan, the soprano, is charming both in voice and manner, and would make a success on the concert stage if she cared to undertake it. My Impressions of last year wei« conilrmed by this Christmas concert of Monday evening. When the Perkins Institution offers a programme of music you are sure of a genuine treat, and of an appeal to your judgment as well as to your heart. Sentenced to Three Days for Contempt of Court Forgetfulness resulted In Jeremiah I>asllva. a resident of Massachusetts avenue, being sentenced to three days in Charles street jail yesterday by .Judge Sheehan. T.asllvn, who wa.s a witnesR in a larceny cáse, failed to return to the court roOin Monday afternoon when the Caáh was called, and Judfe Sliechan yesterday sent him to jail on a contempt charge for his laxness. genius of directors, Afarshall Neilan. And “Freckles’’ makes good on his newspaper assignment. Up to a very recent date the new’S- paper business had been grossly maligned by the movies. Reporters were always horribly scooped by a “cub,” who dashed In with his copy, bettering the traitorous city editor, outwitting the managing editor and marrying the publisher’s daughter. The newsboy was fhtroduced chiefl.v that he might die just as the beautiful meroine was thanking him for saving her life. But “Dinty” Is a real newsboy. It’s true he returns the lost wallet, washes the dishes for his sick mother, outwits t^e whole of Chinatown, and ftiinks quicker than any inspector on the Chinatown squad, yet he does make a real fight for his “corner,” and hires his helpers on the strength of their “Squeak” can claim to probably be , , , , , . ^ ^ ^ ... ... , « The picture is a good one, and it is a the highest type of cat in the annals o/ prophecy to say that it will have New England’s famous cats. No publfc ' institution cat Is Squeak; seeking publicity in the busy marts of men. Squeak is the quiet home dweller, beloved in j the bosom of the family; puss that, purring contentedly on the hearth rug, beside the old high backed rocker, has made “home” more of a home for so many of ua. “Just a regular feller, not fancy, but Oh, so nice,” says Squeak’s mistress, Mrs, Webster Hayward of Spring street, Somerville, of her silky coated fireside pet. Stronger still are the praises of Squeak’s master. He tells how the coming home hour Is made so much the fuller by the sight of the cat silhouetted against the lamp post at the corner, watchfully waiting for him to get off his car. Each summer Squeak motors with his “folks” to Boon Lake. There the warm hionths are spent in the companionship of Michael—a most delightful Irish terrier. The best of friends, the cat and the pup vie for the affection of their mistress. It was when Squeak felt that Mike was winning out that the cat performed a feat that has gone down among the traditions of Boon Lake. It was Michael’s custom to swim after the canoe whenever Mrs. Hayward paddled out across the lake. Squeak followed only to the shore and stood there looking wistfully out to sea—decidedly out of it. Paddling as usual one morning, Mrs. Hayward looked back to assure herself that Michael was coming along in safety when she descried a smaller series of ripples emanating from a small dark object that was battling manfully with the current. Backing until she wms closer Mrs, Hayward recognized Squeak, and at the peril of capsizing pulled the valiant little cat into the canoe, where it rested perfectly satisfied with having gon'e Michael one better. The special performance of “Uinty' for thé newsboys who sell the in Boston will begin at 11 a. m. Christmas Day.
