Down Went the Mercury-. Sitting alone at one of the big concerts con-certs last winter, I chanced some caa- ual remarks to a man on my left. After some pleasant conversation I noticed a celebrity In the front row, and, pointing hhn out to my companion, compan-ion, remarked : "That old fellow used to have a wonderful tenor voice; IVt all cracked to pieces now, though, and rather painful to listen to. The old mun doesn't seem to realize It, though. Don't know him, do you?" . "Yes," replied my companion. "He Is my father." At the first Interval I found myself another Kent Exchange.
