FAVORITE SONGS FOR SCHOOL AND HOME.
The one instrument that comes nearest the voice in its ability to interpret musical expression is not the piano, but the violin. The piano is only an improved harp. Heretofore young girls have spent laborious years in learning how to play the piano, an accomplish­ment difficult to acquire, and requiring incessant prac­tice to retain proficiency. But there has been a change lately that may make the violin as popular
among women as the piano has been. Thousands ol girls are now learning how to finger the strings. The mastery of the violin is easier 10 obtain than that of the piano, and does not require so much strength of hand and wrist. The delicate fingering it involves is just what girls can more easily learn. It is no novel­ty for women, for the painters of the middle ages repre­sented fhe angels as playing on viols as well as harps.
PLEASURE CLIMBS TO EVERY MOUNTAIN.
