Melodies die out, like the pipe of Pan, with the ears that love them and listen for them.

Music is the harmonious voice of creation; an echo of the invisible world; one note of the divine
concord which the entire universe is destined one day to sound.-Mazzini.

Music, in its best sense, does not require novelty; nay, the older it is, and the more we are ac-
customed to it, the greater are its effects upon the hearer of sensibility.-Gæthe.

There is something marvelous in Music. I might almost say that Music is, in itself, a marvel-
a glimmering medium between mind and matter, related to both yet different from either; spiritual,
and yet requiring rhythm ; material, and yet independent of space.Heine.






And the night shall be filled with Music,

And the cares, that infest the day,
Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,
And as silently steal away.

H. W. Longfellow.
From "The Day is Done."

The Home that has been made the sunny side of life never loses its beneficent influence over those it has sheltered in childhood, however they may be jostled by the rude vicissitudes of lite. One of the most memorable reminiscences of California is told of the first great queen of song who appeared in San Francisco, among the restless men gathered there in the early days. They had learned not to value life; they had become a law unto themselves that defied all the teachings of their youth; but when “ Home, Sweet Home” was sung, tears scalded the bronzed faces, and sobs welled up from hearts which had left sentiment behind for adventure. Take the sunny side of Home. It will be a well-spring of joy from the cradle to the tomb.-A. K. McClure.

Our thanks are due to Publishers for copyright favors, and to Prof. Carl Matz for invaluable aid here gratefully acknowledged. The Compiler may be addressed through Messrs. Harper & Brothers, in reference to Old Songs that have been popular favorites, and will be glad to have suggestions from any persons who are interested. Some of the best selections in the present Number have been suggested by lovers of song in different parts of the country, often far-separated.
