The Benton County ' Flouring
Mills are now closed down, and the
probabilities are that they will do
but little grinding between now
and harvest. The reason for the
mills closing down is that they have
all the flour on hand that they can

of wheat yet, but they always keep
a certain amount on hand until the
new wheat comes in.

Coacise History of the Evolatio of tie
Syatpkoay Orchestra May Festival.
The president of the W, V C
U., Mr. Wallis Nash, has told
in a most able, interesting: and
enthusiastic lecture of the lives
and works of such composers as
will be represented by the ora
I tonos tt be sung at Nthe coming;
May Festival. It remains for
bis sen to put in a plea for the
recognition of the orchestra and
the proposed orchestral concert.
That the' choral work is to be
most popular cannot be denied,
tor who does not like to sing in
a latfee chorus and to feel as a
part of the combined wholi
also lor the hearer. binging is
more easily understood than any
other form of music, for it saves
the troubled personal analysis
'Isingof the arms and the man,"
as Virgil says,- and the words are
a key to the emotion evoked.
Singing-, too, is more analag
ous to the human cry, ; and, as
such, '- arouses a corresponding
sympathy m the hearer. The
so-called rag time appeals to a
larger number of people than a
sonata. Why? Because rhythm
is the very foundation stone of
all musical structure music has
evolved from it. In Central
Africa there are certain species
of apes who "beat rhythmically
on wooden obiects of different
timbre" and the love of rhythm
lives, as "many other actions of
babies and drowning men, to
link us to the past, -and the beat
ing of a drum will alwaysmake
our blood run the faster.
Men were lovers of heroes be
fore they were singers, and from
the effort to express the emotions
connected with or induced by
deeds' of love and heroism,
song arose. .
As people gradually left their
nomadic existence and assembled
themselves together in cities the
same influence is traced on their
music the chorus was formed.
Traced historically the chorus
has been through the following
stages: The ancient monody of
the Egyptians, Greeks and early
Christians; the cantus planus,
the plain or even chant of Greg
ory the Great: the ars organum
the art of organating (singing in
the 4th and 5th octave) of Hue-
bald: the introduction or the
measured time by Franco of Col-
ogne m 1200; ana men tne poly
phony, or combination of several
voices singing different parts, of
Palestrina and Bach. So, in our
choral music the two elementary
lactots are present rhythm and
the verbal expression of emotion.
The Symphonic Orchestra be-
gins as our exponent 01 musical
thought where the chorus ends.
The chorus is composed of four
treble, alto, tenor and bass.
Let us look at the orcflestra. It
is primarily composed of three
distinct quartettes and each quar
tette has four tone colors. The
wood wind flute, oboe, clarinet
and bassoon; these are each dis
tinct in tonal expression. The
flute, soft, sweet, lore sick; the.
oboe, gay, pastoral, calling up
visions of shepherds and their
flocks, an out of doors instrument;
the clarinet, heroic, daring, no
ble; the bassoon, humorous, jok
ing, funny who can hear one
without laughing.
The bass; french horns, (gen
erally a quartette of their own)
trumpet, trombone and tuba.
The strings; violins, violas, cel-
os and basses, and to produce
the proper effect the strings
should at least double in number
all other instruments combined.
The tone color then, of the or
chestra is capable of three times
the amount of effect and expres-
sion able to Be proaucea uy a
To most of us, in our new
West the hearing of a properly
balanced orchestra, is an event
to be looked torward to; an open
ing of a new vista of mental and
emotional expression and impres
sion for abstract music begins
where program music ends.
How the melody or theme is
bandied about from instrument
to instrument, sow in the flutes,
then in the strings, floating
ike a shell upon a sea of harmo-
nv ol the combined instruments.
First in the original key, then in
its most nearly related keys, in
major, in minor, worked out, ex
panded, contracted, inverted.
How the symphony is built up
of different themes and move
ments, all distinct, but yet all
connected bv a continuity of
thought; the strongest son, the
gentle loving daughter, the prac-
tical joker,' the merry iignt
hearted one, with all toe world
before him, each different from
the otaer, tbut all having the
same strong family traits. And
what are the principal works writ
ten for the orchestras' The im
mortal nine symphonies of Bee
thoven represent the summum
bonum. . Works .that rank with
the dramas of Shakespeare; with
the paintings of Raphael ; trith
the sculptures of Angelo; with
the generalship of Napoleon or
with the statesmanship of Bis
marck, works that will live as
long as time goes on.
" Each symphony representing
a. snecial chase 01 thought and
expression; some gay, some sad,
some heroic, some pastoral each
existing by itself and for itself:
nothing conld be added, nothing
substracted "each bearing in it
self the splendor of grand and
sad destinies" (Dante?).
Should not an opportunity to
hear such a work be -heralded:
They, need no glamor of footlight
popularity,; or the personal mag
netism of a Paderewski Norordi
ca. but the soul-stirring genius
of the long dead Master-lives and
will ever live . in the,; music he
has written. In each perfor
mance; he is born again; in each
performance, he again shadows
forth his long, hard-fought bat
tle with Fate: his sorrows, his
jokes, his triumphs, his life.

Work in Earnest oa Oar Roads;
There is no question which so
fullv occupies the attention of
the people of this county at the
present time as that of county
roads. Even politics seem to
have lost their fascination, and
the voice of the road master
catches more ears than that of
the aspiring candidate. That
our roads are not of the best is
an unfortunate condition; how
to improve them is lost in a
maze of theory.
Our road supervisors have
shown 'commendable interest in
offering plans and methods of
procedure, but there are good
and sufficient objections to every
thing suggested thus far.
Agitation ot the matter :of
bad roads is going to prove
hurtful to the community, unless
some adequate remedy, can' be
supplied. The Gazette has
been mindful of this fact, and
has been silent until itcould of-
er what it believes to be ,a tan
gible solution. Let; us quit
harping about the ' 'fearful con
dition of our roads" which are j
not so bad as strang'ers and dis-!
tant peoples have been led to be-
leve we all know they are. bad!
enough, and devote our atten-j
tiqn to "Good roads h$:w. to get
them." ' - -
Here is an idea which deserves
development: There is . in( this
county, at a rough i estimate, not
to exceed 200 miles of much-
traveled road. .There is a getv
eral demand that it oe put 1 in
first-class condition for . travel.
The question is how best to do
this quickly and economically;
where to get the funds? Thanks
to the careful .management .;of the
present county court, Benton
county is practically out of debt.
The county can, therefore, sup
ply all the cash necessary. An
experienced engineer said," yes
terday : ' 'Under proper manage;
ment and the supervision of a com
petent engineer, the roads of the
county can be - put in splendid
shape for. an average, cost of $250
per mile." -The cost of im
proving 200 miles of road, then,
would be in the neighborhood of
$50,000. Let the county issue
bonds for this amount, . making
hem payable in five or ten years,
or at the option of the court. By
making them of small denomina
tion, the greater portion ol this
amount would be taken up by
our own people at an interest of
4 per cent. By the time these
bonds become due, we will have
good roads and those who are
getting the benefit of them will
pay the bill. Another item not
to be. overlooked, is that every
acre of land bordering on these
roads will be enhanced in value
at from $2 to $5 per acre, and
every product of the farm will
yield a greater proht. .
A few vears ago the county
contracted an indebtedness of
$80,000 to bnild a court house.
All agree that this was a perfect-
y proper thing to do, out the
bonding of the county now for
$50,000, or even $80,000, for
improving our roads would be
vastly more profitable and should
be more highly popular. A. com
petent engineer can De secured
or $5 per day. He could di
rect the work of improving the
roads, which can be let by con
tract to the lowest bidder, the
court reserving the right to with
hold payment until the work is
The present 2 per cent tax
would be sufficient to keep the
roads in repair, besides improv
ing bv-roads. The polisy com
mon m older countries, of aaving
roek and gravel piles at conveni
ent places along the roads lor use
in winter, if necessary, might well
be adopted.
We have attempted here only
to outline ia acrude way a plan
of procedure, which, we believe,
will give us good roads' quickly,
at a moderate cost, and in such a
way that the burden will net all
come at once, but be. distributed
over a number of years. .We of-
ler it Jot the consideration of
the ; people of the county, and
solicit opinions from all inter
ested upon its merits. C-' '
