The Children's Department of the Fair to be given by the Methodist ladies, in December, is under the supervisión of Miss May Breakey, and the little army of workers that congrégate at her house every Saturday inormng, with work-bag in hand, is evidence suftlcient that there will be uo lack of pretty things on sale, for the children, made by the children, and soid by the children. We are not allowcd to give a list of the anieles to be on sale, but we have a hint tlial "Jo!ls" will not be the only thing.

The first of tlieseven Chamber concerts to be given this winter in Hobart Hall, occured on Friday evening last, and drew one of the best audiences Ann Arbor bas seeu at a concert of this kind. The numbers presen ted by the Pliilharmonic Slring Qaartetle were rendercd in a reni:nkably linished style. The quartette of Mendelssohn reuiiuded us again of the tact that he, the descendant of a long race of noble J.íws, and the refiued, iudefatigable follower of iiacii, teems the last of those few masters whose minds were attuned to the expression of universal joy and sorrow. Even Schubert, who, of all his contemporaries and successors, comes nearest to grasping the saine just aml inevetably right conception ot nature and life, lapses by spells into waywardnes when he should be happy and lato complaint when he should be pitiful. The others seldom or never lose their own personality, and so give us inconipleteiiess or deformity. The Prize-song from the Mister-Singers of Wagner, and the Serenata, by Haydn were well contrasted specimens of the old, pure style and the modern unrest. Traüuierei was too tame for a daj dream, and too still-jointed for the lovelv alght visión it might be. The Concertante of 33, for two vioins, by Allurd, was as refreshlng as a vivaeious Krenchman knows how to be. The broad and mobile tone of Mr. lunck iccelved most excellent support from Mr. Schultz, who bat gained very decidely in depth aud manliuess of tone since last heard in solo bare. Mozart, Rubinstein and Lissen were given place In the solos of Miss Alice Audrus. Miss Andrus has one of those very few voices in which imito simplicity, beauty ot quality and power. Though of limited range, her tones are very even and are capable of many sliades of color. The chaste and severely simple aria "Deh Vivien," froin inarnage of Figaro, was not what oue could wish in light and shade of tone, upper tones seeming to require a reach of efl'ort incompatible with purity of form, but the exuberant rush of joy expressed in the Spring Song of Lassen was caught and poured iorth in the perfect abandon ot uHreflectlng pleasure. Altogether the Uuiversity Society are to be congratulated on this opening of the seriesThe cook book that the Methodist ladies are publishlng to be sold in connection with the fair, to be held during the flrst week in December, Is at the printers and will bc sold at a nominal pnceas soon as published. It is to bc quite complete, and each recipe being slgned by the contributor, will give It somewhat more of local interest tlian otherwise. Mrs. Rogers' department of palntings and art goods will be a!l that could be expected from such a superintendent. Assisted by Mrs. E. B. Lewisand daughter. Now that there is a vacancy In the olllcc of chicf of the Üre department, It would not bc out of place to suggest the name of Moses Seabolt as a good one for the place. He made an excellent chief, is cool, careful, and always on hand Be would be apt to flnd out where a lire was before throwlng water for a half hour or so where no lire existed. In fact, It would puy the various lire companles dolng business in this city to club togethcr and pay such a man a salary, as it might be the means of savlng them many hundreds of dolían.
