The sore or ulcer is only asymptom, an outlet for the poisons circulating in theblood, and as long as it remains impure the sore willnever heal.

ThatIt has a religlie tone is true, but it Is a 10mmitic mulc drama, as truly as "Faust"deserves that title. Though not so sentimental as "fihengrln " It eloselv resembles that play in tone and coloring.But a an opera It has this one gteat dcft. it Is without the exaltatlcn of a greathuman love.

He erecteda magic palace on the southern tlope ofthe mountain. Ip his garden he placedbeautiful women to tempt the Knights olthe Grail as thev passed by. The mostbeautiful of these Kundry. a sort of female Ahasuerus. or wandering Jewess.Wagner makes her tlie woman wholaughed In the face of Christ while he wason hi. way to Calvary, but other traditions declare that she Is no other thanHcrodias. who nimbly danced off the headof John the Baptist ... ... .Kur.urv ennare Amfortas with hercharms and while he Is In the embrace oftbe b-autiful enchantress Kllngsorsnatches the spear ami wounds the Kingof Grail.burg. It Is a grievous wound, forIt can never 1 cured until It is touchedb the siiear itself, and this can only berecovered by "dor tflnc thor." or "theguileless fool." who. in tho Wagnerianup"ra. is Parsifal himself.All of this occurs before the curtainrises' and is necesary to understand themeaning cf the story that follows. Thocpnlng scene shows Gumemanz. a haleand sturdy knight of the Grail, attendedbv two esquires. Trumpets sound andGurneraanz tells his companions to prepare the bath for the King Amfortas. Justas they go oft tbero Is a wild clangor Inthe orchestra, and a horse bearing a wildhuman rider.

Awounded swan flutters across the lake andfalls dying. The Parsifal motive announces to appearance of the culprit,who has ruthlessly killed one of theseanimals -irr. in hese preruin- Par-fal enters and Isjast of his skill at haIng killed the Llr.j on the mg.

Kundrv tellsMm that his mother is .bad. that his lesihad killed her.Then a suiklen trembiirg overcomes thewoman, and the magic motive or Kllngsor In the orchestra tells that th mngi-i-IhiiIs summoning her to her work Rutshe thinks that she Is going into thoforc-t to sleep, and so saying, departGurnemanz. thinking that Parsifal may1 the guileless rio for whom all arewaiting, iiuestlons him. and then walkwith him toward lb.

When thisis sung as It is at Rajreuth. It Is themost exquisite musical effect In the wholeopera. It Is a perfect example of religious music. It isva beautiful melodywithout the sllghteij worldl tint. Itcould ntver be listened to In other thana devotional spirit, for its first notes create such a sentiment.The voice of Titure! now demands thatAmfortas uncover the Holy Grail, that theknights may be sunctlHed and strengtnenel by its sight. At first. Amfortas re-IUS.S iiecHU-e of his sins ami because thesight of it glvvs him renewed vitality, andwith his terrible wound he longs for deathto relieve him of his sufferings.At last Tlturel prevails and in the darkened hall Amfortas raises the Grail andswings it from side to side Then the vessel is seru to glow with a purple luster.The whole act Is accompanied b music ofce.estlul character.Gurnemanz asks Paflfal to remain tosupper, but. lost In meditation. Parsiralrails to reply, anil Gumemanz. disappointid. shakes him am bids him depart, Irlling him In harsh words:I.eave thou our an.. In future. akm.Ami rek thysrlr. rainier, a toose."So k)es the flrst act.At the time that "Parsifal" was composed it was Imperative to have a balletsomewhere along the second act. so thatthe juting nobility would lie attracted bythe romping, skipping, attitudinizing of abevy cf mote or less beautiful glrl. ButWagner had curd out against this as alarltr.m. No ballet should ever hurtthe continuity and purpose of his operas.SOLUTION OF UALLET IDEA.And so the s?cond act of "Parsifal"must be conshieted. not as a comoromisewith the ballet Idea, but as his solutionfor It. For. while it Is not In form crmusic the style of the ballet, its appealto the sense s far more direct, and its useof the attractive charms of women to givea stimulation to the scene is utte of themost powerful that has ever been putupon the stage.The scene 1. the garden rt the magicpalace of Kllngsor.

This kissmakes Parsifal clairvoyantUNDERSTANDS TEMPTATION.He understands the temptation to whichAmrortas fell; he becomes "by pity enlightened." He pushes Kundry angrilyaway. Her cries bring Kllngsor on thescene, and from the castle wall he hurlsthe sacred spear at Parlfal.The weapon flies, but remains suspendedabove the knight's head. Parsifal graspsIt, makes, the sign of the cross, and Kundry. flower girls. Kllngsor and castle disappear beforft the lioly sisn. In theirplaces appear blooming, health-giving andpure flowers, Tbe victory over paganismIs complete, the magic power of darknesshas been quelled. Parsifal's work Is halfdone and the curtain falls on the secondact.When the curtain rises on the third actIt Is acaln a scene In front of the Grailsburg. Parsiral approaches, clad In full armor, and .Gurnemanz. now an old man.rproaches him for bearing arms on GoodFriday. Kundry. too. reappears, not as theenchantress, but as the faithful servantof the Knights of the Grail, who has beenrescued from magic power.When Parsifal disarms Gurnemanz recognizes him. as well as the holy spear,knows that the time for the release ofAmfortas from his sin ard wound approaches. Kundry washes Parsifal's feetas Mary of Macdala did those ot Christand dries them in tbe same manner withher hair. Then Gumemanz pours the holyoil upon Parsifal's head and anoints himKing, and Parsifal fulfill his fl-st dutyas head of the Knlcbtsi of tho Gmll hybaptizing Kundry.
