"Do, re, mi." again, i 'n n constantly rising key, until the imit of the treble, voie.es was reached. "Gently on the hiffh notes," .said the patient choirmaster, whereupon the mischievous young 1 raseuls screamed literally at tho top of their voices. Bang! went tho piano, makiufr such n noise ns to drown even their shrill notes, and their voices became Mid- denly anfrelie. This little exercise is the method vised by Dr. Messitcr, the organist »nd choirmaster of Trinity church, New York, to limber up the vocal chords ol his young- singers. The choirmaster ia a ifenial ffcntleiuan who lias hold this responsible position for nearly twciity- ei?ht vears. This loner period in tho harness would have beon Miilicient to wear out tho nerves of a mau'of less even temperament. I!ut it does not secra to have affected him. as is evidenced by tlie attitudo of the boys toward their kindly director. Vor, in spite of their miseiiievoirs pranks, it !;> evident that lie luis a Rrcr-.t deal of in- flueue.e over them, aud. they seem very fond of him, "When the excrete was finished to his Mp.t.ist'action thu boy.-, distributed the hooks which contained the iirst selection for'the following Sunday. Ki-niembeririR 1 my cn-rly .strnn-g-lcs with such composers as L. O. Kmerson and C. A. White I was uol a little surprised when one of the choirboys, who remembered his pood manners, handed me a copy of Schubert's mass in E ilat. Those youngsters, ranj;inir from ten to fifteen years of a;re. were pohiy to attack the most difficult music with the utmost complacency. 1'erhaps if 1 had been better acquainted with the Episcopal service I mig-ht not have been so much surprised, but, never having- had an opportunity to become familiar with it, I sat i'u open-eyed wonder at the ease with which they sang- the "Kyrie," coming- in in perfect time and striking 1 the accidentals with a clearness of tone that was refreshing 1 . Once they struck a false note, and the choirmaster stopped them with: "What's that note?" and they san<j iv Dn. A. H. NE88ITKW. [CholrmasterofTrlnUy.] right. It -was an accidental D flat in the key of E flat, and it was not surprising- that they missed it, Tho next selection was Mozart's "Have Mercy, O f^ord." There is a strain in this mass which is very soft and very slow, and very difficult, the time being somewhat broken in places, but there was not u mistake made in the rendering of it. Their voices rose in exultant strains;, away up to A natural, in "I Thive Said Thou Art My God," swelling with a confidence of tone which indicated their k'.iov.-lcdjje of music, if not their piety. Tho Easier mass is Haijilel's ".VaR 1 - nificat" and "Nunc DimiUi:-," and an anthem by the surae composer, besides Mendelssohn's amuiffeinont of Psalms 113, 11-1 and US. Then came the creed: "1 Acknowledge One JJantisra,' 1 and ".1 Look for the Resurrection of the Dead." in angelic notes. It wart in :\lemlelssohnV Twenty-second Psalm in (.,'• minor that tho second trebles first mad« themselves heard. Their voices are very sweet, but the choirmaster informed mo that they were rare, ami for this reason lie was compelled to substitute men's voices for the alto parts. "Many people object to this," he said, "because the quality of the voice is different. It is always a falsetto, and not at all like the mellow tones of the penu- ine second treble of a boy's voice." "Do you have any trouble getting 1 the first trebles?" "Not much," he replied. "We have about sixteen boys, and only three of them are altos, but there arc plenty of sopranos." "I suppose they are all from JSew York?" "Oh no; they come from Jirooklyn and Jersey City and I he sum/miding: towns." After tho rehearsal I talked to_one ol the boys, who is a soloist. "You arc the boy who sang- the solo in the Mendelssohn mass, are you not?" . "Yes, ma'am." he answered qmckJy, •with <i pleased smllo. "What is your name?" "Austin Davett." "And where do you live?" "No. 215 Ml. Pleasant avenue, New ark." "Do you enjoy singing?" "Yes, very much." i •"1 suppose you enjoy the money it brings you as much as anything 1 , don't you?" •'Oh. yes! I buy »U my clothes and have money in the bank;" " '"^ "Indeed!" I exclaimed, in surprise. "Perhausyou would not object to tell- iup me how much you are paid." "I pet forty dollars a quarter," said he, "but the best soloist gets a great dPi.1 more than I do." I asked the choirmaster what was the highest price paid for a boy soloist, and he said some churches had p;iid as much us cue thousand dollars w. .year, but that was unusual. "\Vehadaboy once who caini 1 into the choir at a salary of sixty dollars a year. We didn't notice anything remarkable about his voice. II is mother was a poor woman, who washed the boy's surplices, and we took him to help her more than for any other ivasou. One day the second soloist was absent and we were at a loss for some <>uo to put in his place. Ollie Hull, our washerwoman's boy, had shown considerable readiness iii reading 1 notes, so we let him try it. At first he sany rather timidly, but as he gained confidence 1 noticed a stir amonff the men of the choir, as they leaned forward to listen, while his mellow voice ranp out fuller and oleorer at every | note. His performance tlie followi-njj Sunday decided his career as a choir boy, and he was J. HAROLD KSAIT. [Loadlnc Soloist. 1 as leading- soloist at a sulary of live hundred dollars a year." "What do you do with your recruits? Do you not have trouble teaching them to read notes?" "Hoys learn music more rapidly than men. "They take it just as they do their arithmetic. Some loam more rapidly than others. When they first come we put them into tho preparatory class, where they are taught the rudiments and learn to sing by note. The more rapidly they learn the sooner they are promoted to the paid choir." "You must have your patience sorely tried by their pranks." "Oh, yes, the boys are mischievous, but when they are paid for it they understand that it is a regular business, and it \s not, hard to manage them." "About how long is the career of a choir boy?" "Four or five yqars. We seldom take them younger than ten, and they usually sing until they are fifteen. I had one boy who sang- eight years and only gave up at eighteen, but that is very rare." "Whet proportion of them lire able to sing after their career as choir boys is ended?" "Well, that would be hard to say. Some of them sinjf well afterward and some do not, but there seems to be no connection. They generally sing 1 a little, and are always able to read notes. Some strain their voices while they are younjr, but we are very careful about that, for that spoils them for choir boys as well as for singers when they are grown up. "On the whole-, the choir boy's business is a very paying one for a boy. and mothers are always watching for a, vacancy. I have some very funny experiences trying 1 '-"-boys' voices. The fond mothers imagine -tluvt their suns have heavenly voices, but when I try them I find so_mO of them suggestive of anything- else but anyels. "The best thing about the choir boys' business is that they can earn their moaey and tfo to school at the GKOKOJ3 r. DEXKLLEKS. [A Sololst'i t same time. They rehearse three times a week-, but the rehearsals are always sot after school hours. .1 think their hardest trial is sitting titill during the sermon, and keeping their heads- bowed at communion. Many a little ten-year-old peeps out as the people come up to tho altar to see. who is passing. Hut this looks very bad. am. 1 have to be very severe with, them about it, though I can hardly blame themi" ' , , On ray visit to Trinity church the following Sunday I looked in vain for any of these symptoms, for these youthful dissemblers sat like veritable cherubim throughout the entire service, and as they marched out with the cross, in the lead.thay might have-been "marching -upward to ZioaV; from the expression of their countenances. As thev moved further and further away, their voices growing 1 fainter ami fainter, the distant music was more like what one would expect of heavenly beings than of those very earthly urchins, who perhaps turned somersaults in their surplices after the service, was over, to get rid of some of the energy which choir boys share with th-j rest of youthj'nl and unulhcrojil cn.Mturcs.

Saviny the iirst item, and duly liiYiU-' iiiff the ntlicrs, the belief is sound.no doubt. Hut I bun Itntuta tells us, mi the authority of "pious persons" he met in India, that the kinjr lives in state. Pour nobli'incn alwa.ys attend him with mis in their luuids, and cooks serve him on their knees, Xiki- tin, the Itnssiiiii travclerof the lifteenth century, ffives more details. The l<in£ has a train of "armed followers." When a subject is caught he contrives to scud a message tr> the sovereign, who forthwith dispalelies an many. "And when they come to the town they pull down the houses anil bent the people: am! their armies, it is said, arc. many." This is r.nlqtiiUi so ridiculous as it. looks. f'»' i;i « ssn'i'cd apes that fi-cqiient an Indian vilUvre will really jjiitliiir t,o a veil ;;•(.' an injury, and it is a emniiion practico with them to destroy the hut when mn'-ereil. Hut it may have occurred to \ikifin thnt his statement was too liroad. lie ox- pliiins, therelVirc, how monkeys arc caught with impuiiii.v. They have a n-re.nt many children, "ain! when :> child is iinlikt: its fa the.- and mother it, is tin-own i mi. on tin- hi;: 1 ' 1 rn'.id. Thus they are talccn by tlie 1 lindoow, who teacii them every sort nf handi- cruft, or sell them at nifrht. that they mav not find their way home." He mentions also that at Shiibar, which appears to have been somewhere near Madras, people dare not travel at nijrht in the woods for fear of monkeys —which is certainly not exact, since the creatures never move after sun down; but if there be :i foundation of truth in the leg-end, it is curious. We •are not nwarc that any Indian apes at this day will attack a passer-liy unless gravely provoked. Hut there, are plenty elsewhere that will. When diamonds were first discovered in South Africa, Europeans flocking to that thinly peopled region became aware of an annoyance, not to say danger, which they had not reckoned among tlie chances of the journey. Many a lonely kloof was frequented by a tribe of apes, which dwelt among the rocks above, and descended to feed •—many do still, no doubt, but not on the beaten tracks. Jn summer weather diggers camped out and started at snn- risci? rested dnring the heat, and re- sumeu in the lute afternoon—tlie foeduiR- times. As often as not the big male apes gathered promptly to defend the pass. We never heard of a serious accident on authority, though plenty arc reported. The brutes ivro not loss formidable in appearance than in fact, and when, at. iv Uight of stones, they charge, roaring and screaming, travelers arc rarely so stupid as to face them. In 1871 there was a defile in the district of Albania which had beon closed by apes for several years. Neither Boers nor English settlers willingly assail them, owing, we understand, to a belief that they avenge themselves upon tlie crops of tho aggressor. Unless Mr. Mansfield Parkyns exaggerated the intelligence and discipline of their kinsfolk ill Abyssinia this notion is not so absurd—if, as is always probable, the aggressor's crops were those nearest to the colonj'. .Mr. Parkyns says that he often watched them descending the rocks to feed. The old males go first—some of them scout on either flank, ami all climb every eminence near the line'of march, to assure themselves that lliu route is safe. After ru- counoilering, they gave orders in such different tones of voice tli.it ea>:h must have :i special meaning. Tho elders an? silent when a.<l- vuucing; but the main body, females and young, keep «P an incessant chatter, 'playing and feeding as they go, unless brought to an instantaneous halt by signal. Itchind follows the risur gu'iird of males, who drive loiter-• Orson sharply. On reaching the cornfields, the scouts take posts all round, while all the rest fall to plundering "with the uttnost expedition, Jilling their check pouches us full us they will hold, aud then tucking- the heads of cornundertheirjirmpits." Mr. I'arkyns never saw a scout leave his place, where he can not feed, until the foray in over and he resumes his duties cm the homeward march. Evidently they must be allowed a share of the booty carried oil. An unfailing instinct tells them where to search for writer, aiM they dig for it with their hands, one relieving another u: the work he prolonged.'' Leopards arc the great enemy, but they seldom dan.- attack u, full-grown animal. This species is not so pngniicious as (.lie .South African, perfuip's bocaitw food is more abundant, and they :iro more familiar with human beings. They withdraw atsight, of men, though they attack dogs, and sometimes w'linon, if alone. .Mr. I'nr- kynssawa striking instance of their iii tell igenee tit Khirtnm.

They were new to such a place. They were not tramps or professional lodtfors. Seven in ten were such men as one is used to seeing 1 about the wharves, or carrying dinner-pails homeward in the uptown streets at supper time. They were unskilled laborers, with here anil there a man not so easy to place— a countryman, perhaps, or a man from a distant city. They -tood with their heads up and their eyes moving-, to take in everything- around them. The German patrolman began at the head of tlie line and asked for recruits for the workhouse— a new departure in lodg-intf-room practice. "Do you want to go 'way?" he asked of each. "Do you want to go 'way?" "Do you want to go away?" Dow these unfortunates understood him I. don't know, for I had to have his meaning- explained.
