Futte. -A Katry Tale," op. 16 Jo ™ Suk
"Die <Jre| Zigeuner," for voice, nolo violin end or

<Obbltgato. Richard Arnold.)"
Prelude and GloiiScatioa from "Parsifal" Wagner
The compositions by Richard Burmelster and
Josef Buk are new. The latter has been heard In
Chicago, but the former will have Its first per
formance on this occasion. It is a s< tting of Ten
nyson's poem, 'beginning:
We were two daughters of one race
She was the fairest in the face—
The wind is blowing in turret and tree.
Joseph Suk Is the energetic young: Bohemian
composer to whom attention was directed by a
symphony in X major performed by the Philhar
monic Society in November. 1900. He Is a pupil,
disciple and. w* believe, also son-Jn-law of Dr
rhrorak. The suite which he published under the
simple title "Kin Mahrchen" in German, and "Pc
hadka" ("A Kairy Tale"), Is based upon material
drawn from the Incidental music composed for a
dramatic legend entitled "Raduz and Mahulena."
toy the admin-d Bohemian pea 4 Z>er, which was
performed at the National Theatre. In Prague, on
April 10. 1838. The drama une 8 material obviously
drawn from Slavic folklore, Its story being, in out
line, as follows::
Once upon a time Prln. ••» Ri.dOz. son of the King
0t Mssnir and NyoU. his wife, pursued a white
deer lato the preserves of Stojmir. monarch of a
neighboring people, and then killed It. Now the
deer was not only a sacred animal, but also the
pet of Mahulena. daughter of King Stojmlr and
Runa. liir, wife-, who once baa been the rival of
Nyola. and hated her with a deadly hatred At
last her day <>f vengeance .seemed to have dawn«-d.
Hy her orders Raduz was seized, manack-d. thrown
into prison, arid treated with harshness and con
tumely. But Kabulera'a heart went nut in love to
him. an.l she so-jgnt to aid him to escape. The
attempt was frustrated, Kaduz chained to a lofty
rock, and the kf-y of his fetters thrown into the
abym. As the key {■ II it was caught by a woo.l
chopper to whom th.- Prince had once done ;>■ kind
ness. He carried tt to Mahulena. who free.) h<-r
lover, but e\'en >is the chains fell from his limbs
the wicked queen confronted the young pair
Raduz overpowered h. r. tied h'-r to a tree, then
fled down the mountain with Mahulena, followed
by the Imprecations of Runa. who burdened the
:iir with an awful curse: Raduz was doomed to
forsake his love the moment another wjman kissed
him.
Arrived at the capltil of Mapur. Raduz hurried
on ahead to prepare a reception for his bride. At
the Kate? he was greeted by heralds anr.o'ini'lnK
the death of his royal father; and v.-hen he entered
the death chamber his sorrowing; mother took him
in her arms and kissed him. A pain ran through
his heart like a knife thrust, and all memory or
Mahulena fled from his mind. Meanwhile Mahu
lena. weary of waiting for his return, sought the
Prince at the royal palace, <<nly to find herself
cast off. In her woo she measured her length upon
the ground, and tailed on Mother Earth for pity.
Her prayer was h>-;,rd. and she metamorphosed
into a poplar. A strange and unaccountable at
traction now drew Kr.drtz toward the tree which
had sprung up so miraculously near the palace.
He hovered about it always as if in a dream, and
gave no heed to the entreaties of his mother, who
resolved m cure him of his singular infatuation by
felling the tree: but as she struck her hatchet into
the trunk blood gushed out of the wound and
stained the forehead of Radfiz. At once the charm
was broken. Mat ulena stood before him in all her
beauty, and the royal children, lovers again, fell
Into each other's arms.
A few words of description ndded to the com
poser's titles will enable the leader to comprehend
his purposes In the music The suite lihs four
movements, in the succession and character ->t
which a symphonic principal will readily he recog
nized.
I. "Love and Grief of the Royal Children." The
opening theme (So. v is typical of the seif-sac
rlflclnfr love of Mahulena.
under a tremolo of the violins), it makes up the
material of the Introductory part of the movement.
The themes arc blended with a melody of a leg
endary cast first given OUI by the wolo violins (No.
St. and !n their development the love of the youth
ful pair Is depleted.
In the second part of the movement the feeling
is one of prief Muted horns proclaim the death of
Frince R^duz's father (No. 4). and we hear the
flphs and moans of the stricken onea (No. .'" , bill
the symbol of Mahulena's love (No. 1), heard again,
first In the basses, then repeated energetically In
the minor, speaks comfort to the Prince.
11. "Intermezzo. Folk Dance." A la polka, B
major. 2 — i. The music is based upon a dance epi
sode from the first act of the drama (No. 8). and
.1 song, th. melody of which I* the ba?is of the
trio of the movement which «»rves in tne general
s h.-me as a scherso (No. 7).
11l "Intermezzo. Kunfral Music." From the
In the legend <;e,(HnK with the obsegulea of
the father of Prince Radoz. The music begins with
a subdiK-d chorale lik» passage irbicß sounds ;.
if coming from afar (Na B). This k-^ids Into the
funeral march proper. heßinnlnK (No. fi) In the
voices of the wood wind an>l horn.
IV. "Que<^n Runa'f Curse. Triumph nf 1.,,\e."
The pymbol of the wicked Queen (No. 1«) opens the
movement, follow. rl quickly by the symbol "f the
curse (No. 11). Themes from the first movement
are broußht In singly ami In combination, but
changed and distorted— they feel the malign influ
ence of the curse. Gradually, however, they assert
their mastery, and their development In the climax
tell;" of the triumph of love.

Louis:
The Kasl knows very llttl. abOUl the musical ac
tivities of the West, being more familiar with On
clnnatl and <'iii-.i«o events than those of other
cities, perhaps. St. Louis is seldom mentioned in
Kastern musical and theatrical notes; yet we have
in the Choral-Symphony Society a chorus of '<)
well selected and admirably trained voices and an
orchestra of sixty. Both chorua and orchestra are
In better condition now than ever before and th«
present season Is full of promise. We have already
had Verdi 1 .-, ' Requiem and Mendelssohn's -at

Abbot I in Paris:
Much ;id.. was made .it the Osarfl over the debut
of Miss Bessie Abbott, -who made her first appear
ance in "Romeo and Juliette." Miss Abbott has
■ luite a sin. til hut pure voice, and her vocalization
is- even. It .s not possible now to judge what her
future will be, but it seems likely that after a
little more study she will rank with those little
l.lrdlike automatons, of whom Mme. Melba is the
chief, and are made t'> charm rather the Knglish
and American taste than the French.

ANOTHER BILL TO PREVENT KILLING
OF BIRDS AT TRAPS BEFORE
THE LEGISLATURE.
An effort Is being made by various) societies
to stop the sport of pigeon trap shooting:. At
the last session of the legislature there was an
organized effort made, and the bill only failed by
two votes from becoming a statute. The Audit
bon Society of America, th» Ornithological So
ciety of the United States and the Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are said
to be the sponsors for Assemblyman Bonnet's
bill, which he has just introduced Into the As-
Bcmbly at Albany.
The bill repeals th- 1 law of I*»T.">. whs h per

and th»- promoters of the Grand Aaaertcaa

Superintendent Ilankinson of the Society for
th>- PreTention of Ci uelty to Animals said:

President J. A. H. Dwell of the Interstate
Trap Shooting Association said:
There is very little cruelty in trap shooting
and the wounded birds rarely liv,- to suffer, as
the sponsors for the Bennei measure would
have us believe. The birds are obtained as wild
as possible, and the conditions are made in their
favor Just as greatly as possible so is to in
sure the utmost skill on the part of the man it

tions, the sport of trap shooting is not nearly so
brutal as the killing of domestic same and fowl
for the tables of the very people who propose to
prohibit a pastime which has lasted for many
years, despite the strenuous efforts made to
crush it.
The consensus of ..pinion among local trap
shooters here is that there is going to be a bag
onslaught on their favorite pastime, and that
the clubs having grounds across the North
River, in New --Jersey, will benefit thereby Al
