Skating tbe switch; A novel feature of the world's largest rink. The
most novel feature of tbe Eraprcea Skating Kink, (Carl's court, which baa Just
roopened Its doors for the season, Is the "skating switch-back," down which
those Indulging In Its fierce Joys and Its mild terrors glide on their roller
skate. Tbe device, which is tbe first of Its kind, stretches from end to
end of the building. The rink has a skating area of 60,000 feet. And will
accommodate 4,200 skaters. Illustrated London News.
MY FIRST LESSON.
tValUKnonn Compoier Tell of Ilia
Next to being bora, the most impor
tant event of my life was when I be
gan tbe study of music, saya John
I'lilllp Bouna In The Oirde. From my
revdltMt remembrance I wootwl to be
a musician. I have no re-collection of
ever wuntlng to to anything else. The
flrat to Induct me Into the mysteries
or the art waa a Sponlfth friend of
my father. ThU friend ond hU wife
were constant visitors at our bouse,
and when one evening I was particu
larly active in rolling a baseball
around the room, to the evident dis
comfiture of our vlaltora, my fathers
friend suggested that It would be a
good plan o give me leasoas In sol
feggio. My father thought I -was too
young to begin tho study ef mualc.
but I pleaded so hard that he finally
consented. My start waa not very en
couraging. Tho old Spaniard waa a retired or
chestral player and had a vocal organ
that would not exctAo the envy of
either Cartjto or Bond. I believe he
had the wont voice I have aver heard.
All musical Intervals were aounded
alike by him. When ho waa calm be
squawked; when excited be squeaked.
At tbe first leason he bade me repeat
th syllable of tho scale after him.
"Do." he squawked.
"Ik)," I squawked In Imitation.
"No. no," he cried, "alng do," and
ho squeaked tbe note.
"Do," I squeaked In a vain effort to
correspond with hla arowllke vocal 1-ration.
He grow vary angry, stormed and
Abused me. Hla mental ear waa alert
and true, but the articulated sound
of hla voice conveyed nothing but a
grating noUe to my child mind For,
an hour he squeaked and squawked
do, re, fa, no. la, si. do, and 1 hope
lenaly floundered after him. At last
the Uunon was orer and I waa almost
a nervous wreck. While I remained a
pupil of the old gentjeman tbe bound
of hla toneleaa voloo hung over me like
a pall and filled my soul with horror

Koters have bow femed the Jr-ar i

To the Lincolnshire farmers they pro

statement was amplified by another
speaker, who testified that experiments
snowed the English beet to be superior
to the German, cont.lnlng 17.3 unit
of sugar, against tbe German 15 untu,

average being about eighteen tons.
