Good Teachers.—Not every one who is a good player is for that reason a good teacher. The best player may be the (poorest teacher. To be a good musician is one thing, to be a good teacher is another. There are many who possess a great amount of in­formation, but who can impart little or nothing. There are others who attempt to be guides, but who do not know the road. There are not a few who at­tempt to teach, who were never properly taught. Teachers are not made, they are born. It is diffi­cult to judge of a good teacher. Inquire before you engage one. The fact that parents have no full ap-
preciation of the importance of a child's education, accounts for the indifference which they show in the selection of teachers. Many parents engage poor teachers for beginners. A sadder mistake was never made in the process of education. As well may you lay a foundation of soft brick, consoling yourself with the idea that you will finish the house with grey stone. The first teacher is very likely the one who will
make or mar the musicalfuture of your child___Men.
Music is the only one of the fine arts in which both man and all other animals have a common property —mice and elephants, spiders and birds.—Richter.
ROBINSON CRUSOE.
Spirited.
Air—" Rogue's March."
The cannibals came to his island one day,
To feast, for all cannibals do so, But Friday, their man, jumped out of the pan,
And ran off to Robinson Crusoe. Oh, Robinson Crusoe! Oh, poor Robinson Crusoe! He fired off his gun, and then there was fun
For lonely old Robinson Crusoe.
But he never lost hope, and he never would mope, And he always had faith, as should you, so
That come as it might, it always was right With honest old Robinson Crusoe. Oh, Robinson Crusoe! Good old Robinson Crusoe!
Where can school-boy be found to stop at a round " Hurrah for old Robinson Crusoe! "
