"SM I LE AND BE NATURAL."
Some Sound Suggestions to ; Singers
Be natural in vour pose.
You will never get the best,!,ffects
from j-onr voice if you take a tense at
titude while singings or if. you keep
yoiir muscles straiped and your nerves
tense. " j
What the doctors call relaxation
must come, and! hen you relax you

will feel very fatigued. Whereas if you
had scng as you walk "or stind you
.would have no fatigue at all.
'The voice does not flow so sweetly
when the muscles of the throat are
drawn tight, and the chest does not give
,out its 4e5t tones , when you have
squared your shoulders too far back.
Teach yourself how to let go on your
muscles. ;' " ' --' ." :. .. j-'
You don't know what !ari lekcellent
help it will always be to you, 'riot only
in singing, but in everything else.
' Smile, be pleasant, laugh, if , you can
and use your eyes. i ! " i
You are not goingf tc kill any one.
You are not intent upon; some dreadful
deed, and yet, I assure j you many
young ladies look that way as soon as
they begin to sing. j
There are certain difficult cadenzas
that need -a certain figures and move
ment of the head, that even a great
artist in acting will have! to give but
she will make the expression cm her
(race natural and not as if ishe were run
ning at you to frighten you.
A singer must open her mouth, very
wide, and of'en twist it a' little at the
Corners, but she can leatn to do this
without a bad effect, and you who
know the musical part of singing should
learn this physical part at once.
Do not fix your eyes with a stare on
nothing and keep that stare up through
out the whole song. Look at the people
you are singing to, look 'at your music,
pr. it'ydu have none, look down at the
accompanist and then at your audience,
all' iri a natural way, as if you wcre talk
ing. , 9.
Don't get exejted over your highr
notes and the runs, because: if you d0
you will not do them half so well and'
your audience will see what an effort
it is for you to sing, and they will not
enjoy it as much.
Behind your piano have a mirror and
whenever you practice look at yourself
m the mirror.
You will not like your looks when
.sing-ng, and so, little by little, you will
.'earn to smile and to nod ybur head
,ind" to give a meaning to your words.
li you have (been singing a long time
and have never done this Jbet'ore, then
try it at once and see how you look
when you see yourself ih the mirror
.singing. . ..
Don't stand as if you were waiting
to be shot, with your shoulders drawn
high and your hands twisted together
and your arms behind your back. '
. Don't throw your head so far back
that it gives a strained look to your
Don't swell the muscles -up in the
neck and over the chest.
It is impossible for the concert singe
to take any other attitude than the con
ventional one, I suppose, holding the
music vvith one and and looking out at
,lhe audience. But" the singer in a pri
vate house or in the familv Circle, if she
feels she cannot stand qhietly. and yet
naturally, may take some attitude which
will give her an-easy oose.
v or instance, she may put her arm
on the back of a chair, or lay her arm
across the piano and lean ;, little against
;t. inese things will help hei to keep
an easy position.
If you find tnat you cannot sing even
one song through without rettim?

you have not learned, to place your voic
Go to a teacher and see to it that 4he

expressions of joy. From the Mansion

thoroughfares were constantly paraded
by; cheering crowds, intcrmittingly
, bursting into patriotic songs. Bands,

extuiant notes were to be heard at
every place of public gathering through
out the metropolis. At all the music
halls patriotic songs were t?ivcn, the
people rising and joining amid scenes
of unbounded enthusiasm. One strik
ing feature of the rejoicing was the
great number of American flags inter
twined with the British. From every
part of the empire there is-a constant
fntjux' of telegrams, describing the re
