When American educators visited Europe, some forty years ago, for the purpose of studying school systems, they found that instruction in vocal music was almost universal in the schools of Germany, and some other continental countries. Prior to that time juvenile class instruction in singing was comparatively unknown in this country. It now has its recognized place in the list of studies in the public schools of almost every city in the land. The time approaches when instruction in the elements of vocal music will become very general in our schools. Already school officers are asking candidates for positions as teachers,
Can you give instruction in singing? and other quali­fications being equal, those who can teach children to sing are preferred to those who cannot.— Tillinghast. It is told of Daniel Webster that he cultivated the eye in reading to such an extent that he would look through a whole printed page while reading alouc one-half of it, and then pronounce the remaining hal. with the book shut. This habit of looking ahead is quite as necessary in the reading of music, and should be cultivated in children from the beginning. It is best acquired by reading from printed music those exer­cises and songs which are familiar.—L. W. Mason.

THE RHINE.
Words by Max Schnbckenburgek. Music by Cakl Wilhelm.
While flows one drop of German blood, Or sword remains to guard thy flood, While rifle rests in patriot's hand, No foe shall tread thy sacred strand!—Cho.
So lang' ein Tropfen Blut noch gluht, Noch eine Faust den Degen zieht, Und noch ein Arm die Buchse spannt, Betritt kein Feind hier deinen Strand.—Cho.
Our oath resounds, the river flows,
In golden l*ght our banner glows,
Our hearts will guard thy stream divine,
The Rhine, the Rhine the German Rhine!—Cho
4. Der Schwur erschallt, die Woge rinnt, Die Fahnen flattern hoch im Wind: Am Rhein, am Rhein, am deutschen Rhein, Wir alle wollen Huter sein !—Cho.
