We are ready to attack again an abuse which forms at this period of the year one of our regular subjects for disquisition - playing musical instruments out of hours. But as time seems to increase the annoyance, time also has added fuel to our wrath. The dulcet strains of the oboe and the nerveless screech of the violin have become simply maddening when they interrupt the culminating work of the year. The walls seem only to increase and re-echo the noise. We absolutely demand in behalf of suffering humanity, that the abuse be stopped.
