'Promising Barytot e Revealed
at Concert of Humanitarian
Cult at Carnegie Hall
The Humanitarian Cult at its concert
i last night at Carnegie Hall revealed a
; singer new to New York, but of a most
promising quality. He was Augusto
Ordonez, a Spa"nish barytone, who, it
j is understood, has recently been sing
j ing in Havana. Mr. Ordonez was intro
! duced by Mischa Appelbaum, president
I of the Humanitarian Cult, as the great?
est barytone in the world, which as
; sertion was distinctly not true.
The young Spaniard has a beautiful
i voice, and one of unusual uniformity
of timbre throughout its scale, b?t his
1 use of it was far from impeccable. At
: times he forced it to a marked un
; steadiness, and at others his emotional
: exaggerations were painful. His sing
I ing of Figaro's big air from "The Bar
I ber" was in places brilliant, but he
i has yet to learn the full secret of Ros
! sini. The "Di Provenza" from Tra
: viata he began very well indeed. Then
: his emotion overcame him and the line,
| both melodic and of taste, was broken.
Other things which he sang were the
i prologue from "Pagliacci" and Mana
Zucca's "The Star of Gold." Mr. Or?
donez possesses a voice both warm
and vibrant, but he lacks polish, taste
and a 6ense of measure. But he will
bear watching. The other musicians
who appeared at the concert were Miss,
Lila Robson, contralto, and Jan Chia
pusso, pianist. G. V.

Left to Nurses
By Miss Cavell
Farewell Letter, Written on
Eve of Execution, Made
Public Here, Reveals
Martyred Woman's Heart
"Duty Brings Happiness"
Refers Touchingly to Eight
Years She Spent in
Training Belgian Women
Just before Edith Cavell, the mar?
tyred English nurse, was executed by
the Germans she wrote a letter to her
nurses at the Ecole Belge d'Infirm?
i?res, in Brussels. The letter has just
been received in this country. In it
Miss Cavell mentions the eight years
in which she was director of the school.
In words surchargad with pathos she
utters her farewell. It is eloquent in
its testimony to the nobility of the
heroic women who fell a victim to Hun
A copy of this document has been
hung in the living room of the new
Nurses' Home, 38 West Forty-eighth
Street, by the New York County Chap?
ter of the American Red Cross, togeth?
er with a photograph of Nurse Cavell,
whose body was removed this week
from its grave in Belgium to England.
She was executed on October 2, 1915.
The letter is dated October 11, 1915.
Urges Duty and Courage
The letter is as follows:
"Prison of St. Gilles, Brussels.
"My Dear Nurses: I am %vriting to
you in this sad hour to bid you fare?
well. You will remember that Septem?
ber 17 brought to an end the eight
years of my direction of the school. _ I
was so happy to be called to help in
the organization of the work that our
committee had just founded. On Octo?
ber 1, 1907, there were but a few
pupils. Now you are already quite
numerous?fifty or sixty, I think.
"I have told you on different occa?
sions the story of those early days and
the difficulties that we encountered,
even to the choice of words for your
'hours of duty' and 'of duty.' In Bel?
gium all was new in the profession.
Little by little one service after an?
other was established?graduate nurses
for private nursing, pupil nurses, the
hospital of St. Gilles. We supplied
the institute of Dr. Depage, the Sani?
tarium of Buysinghen, the clinc of Dr.
Maye, and how many are called upon?
as you may bo, perhaps later?to nurse
the brave wounded in the war. If this
past year our work lias decreased it is
due to the sad days through which we
are passing. In happier days our
work will renew its growth and its
power for good.
"I speak to you of the past because
it is wise occasionally to stop and look
behind over the road that we have
travelled and to note our errors and
our progress. In your beautiful build?
ing you will have more patients and all
that is needed for their comfort and
for yours. To my regret I was not al?
ways able to speak to you individually
? -you know I had much to occupy my
time?but I hope you will not forget
our evening talks.
"I told you that devotion to duty
| would bring you true happiness, and
that the tnought yuu huu uone your
I duty, earnestly and cheerfully, before
God and your own conscience, would
j be your greatest support in the try?
ing moments of life and in the face
"Two or three of you will remember
i the little talks we had. Do not forget
them. Having already travelled so far
through life, I perhaps could see more
? clearly than you and show you the
straight path. (
"One word more. Peware of unchar
j itable speech. In these eight years I
i have seen so much unhappiness which
could have been avoided or lessened
if a few words had not been whispered
here and there, perhaps without evil
intention, but which ruined the repu?
tation, the happiness, the life even of
some one. My nurses should all ro
flect on thai, and should cultivate
among themselves loyalty and esprit
Never Willingly Unjust
"If anyone of you has a grievance
against me I pray you to forgive me.
I may sometimes nave been too severe,
but I was never willingly unjust, and
I have loved you all?far more than
"My good wishes for the happiness of
I all my young girls, both those who have
[ graduated and those who are still In
I the school, and I thank you for the
courteous consideration you have al?
ways shown me.
"Your devoted directress,
The Dr. Depage mentioned in Miss
Cavell's letter is now in this country
to promote a plan for a memorial hos?
pital in honor of Mis3 Cavell and his
wife, who went down with the Lusi
"Noble Women," Says Physician
Dr. Depage is a colonel by military
rank and is head of the Belgian Red
Cross. He knew Miss Cavell well, as
the result of the eight years the Eng?
lish nurse spent as directress of his
hospital. It was to the nurses of this
hospital that the farewell letter was
"She was a most noble woman," said
Dr. Depage yesterday. "I hope Amer?
ica will come again to the help of Bel?
gium in assisting in establishing a
suitable memorial to her Bplendid
spirit and noble patriotism."

Lassies Are to Fry Them
The humble doughnut, food hero of
the trenches, is about to make its

spend the rest of our time trying to
make something as nearly as possible
like this wonderful, fragile thing that
David Wark Griffith has done.
For the last two years we have seen
at least one picture a day and yet,
la3t night, we sat on the edge of our
seat, one hand grasping the arm and
the other crushing a wet handkerchief
r.nd trembled and grew hysterical over
what we saw before us.
While we always have been devoted
to the pictures, we never really liked
them nearly so well as the spoken
drama, but surely "Broken Blossoms"
could never be done so appealingly in
any other medium.
Such photography we did not dream
existed! It was soft and laay and
blue and roseate and?but what is the
use? No words can tell anything about
Lillian Gish is "the girl," for
, "Broken Blossoms" is taken from "The
Climb and the Child." by Thomas
Burke. Miss Gish's work is so tender,
yet so convincing, that there comes a
time when you just can't watch her
any longer. The tragedy of it is too
And Richard Barthelmess, as the
Chinaman, does the most beautiful and
delicate work of his career. Donald
Crisp is "Battling" Burrows, the un?
willing father an? the torturer of the
girl. "Battling" is "as much like Bill
Sykkes as may be, with something
thrown in for good measure, and the
death scene is done in the same way
we saw it done in "Oliver Twist." He
strikes, but you cannot see the blow
fall. The violin gives a strange, weird,
almost grotesque wail, and the little
blossom lies broken at last.
And the speedy death of "Battling"
by the hand of the Chinaman seemed
Another thing which Mr. Griffith has
done is to keep the story a simple tale
of a few people. It is told exactly as
it would be in a book or on the stage.
There are scenes between Mr. Barthel?
mess and Miss Gish which last for
several minutes and nothing at all hap?
pens to disturb the tranquil beauty of
th'-nt?rot ev?n f title.
The story is so simple that it needs
no comment. It ?3 short and ineffably
sad, but when it was over we wanted
to rush up to every one we met and
cry: "Oh, don't miss it?don't miss
it! " And we hope Mr. and Mrs. Mc
Adoo and Nazimova and all the other
celebrities enjoyed it and wept over it
as we did.
The picture is preceded by an overt?
ure in which the characters are seen
on the stage in a beautiful Oriental
setting. The only thing that we ?vouli
change would be the elimination of all
reading mater between the stage pro?
logue and the picture. Why cannot
this all be told on the programme"
Mr. Griffith refused to appear until
the people refused to leave the theatre,
and then he spoke only a few words,
thanking them, and also the people
who had contributed to the success of
the picture. He seems a very modest
man! H. N.
