women, who at the present day are
either exhausted by ihe demands of
society and the i ush and push of the

pleasures, that have ceased to in

Men, lis. a rule, have larger and wider
opportunities under which to practice
those forms of exercise that (end to
the development ot body and the better
ment of-health. Woman's world is
m re contracted, by its many conven
tional law and regulations.
Music, while it is regarded by most
people rather as an accomplishment
than an acquisition in women's-educa
tion, is not infrequently employed as a
means for physical development.
The studv of the voice, its nroner
exercise under competent instruction,
often do's much for the improvement
of the general health in those who
need greater, pulmonary activity.
In the handling of various j instru
ments, particularly the violin, iwomen
have shown that they are ;;s fully
capable of Lecoming agists as their
lords and masters.
While undoubtedly the pianoforte
will for years to come be the musical
instrument for women, yet the action
for divorce therefrom has already be

habitual practice, so needed ti acquire

The Daily Saratofjian Jun.tt27th,
1890, in a review of the New York
Music Teachers Meeting, sit Saratoga
Springs June 24th, 25th and 2Gth, had
this to say of the writer of the above:
uln the twelve rich musical program
mes given during the three days' con
vention, Miss May Lyle Smith who
is not ouly a remarkable flute plaver,
'.but a very handsome and bright Voung
lady, the daughter of Dr. Lyle Smith,
of Hudson, N. Y., was the chief at
traction and sensatiou among the
many fine musical features.
May Smith is not a powerful, nor
even an individualizing name, but May
Smith, flutist, is quite another appel
lation; but when the owner of it ap
peared an uncontrollable sort of ebulli
tiofTtook possession of the house.
Miss Smith wore a white gown made
baby fashion, with shoulder sleeves,
and not a rinket of any sort to mar
its beauty. When she raised her
silver-trimmed flute to her mouth and
made the reeds pulsate with the inspira
tion from her pink lips, a murmur of
admiration ran through the-house.
Everybody had seen a lady bow a
violin, but this was the first time a fair
flutist had been seen.
And so fair, too!
She played like an ideal shepherd
boy. She had the grace and ease that
comes with training and a conscious
ness of charm, and as a girl and a
flutit she was an inspiration for a
painter, a poet and a dreamer.
Truly this is woman's age. One had
only to look at Miss May to know that
knowledge is a means of grace, that
ideality in education increases the ca
pacity of beau'y and utility, and that
to be well trained ne ntdly and physi-

The sick room was very still; the
night-lamp burned low, aiid the watch
ers made fantastic shadows on the
wall, but no one moved or spoke. The
doctor said this was the turning point
of the disease, and there was nothing
to do but wait wait.
The boy slept and his father kept
his eyes fixed upon the thin w.utcd
features, and watched for what he
hoped would prove a new lease of life.
The mother had gone to lie down and
rest. The nurse sat near and dozed.
At last the sick child suddenly opened
his large bright eyes and said in a

"Will it soon be morning?"
"Yes, dear bov."
"And will I be well then 1""
The pcor father could not answer.
No one spoke, and a faint light soon
stole into the room that drowned the
flickering rays of the night-lamp and
shone rosy on the wall. Then suddenly
a little voice filled the room. It was
so sweet and clear that it sounded like
a strain of music from celestial spheres.
It was the dying boy finishings his
prayer ! When he came to the last
clause he seemed groping in doubt.
"Forever and ever forever and
ever " and with the words on his lips
he drifted off to sleep again.
The rising sun shone into the room
and lighted up its dim obscurity. It

and touched the little face with a
mocking glow of health ami strength.
