Mnt Saenserbund conductor for years
und the directors of the Oratorio So-
ip't !ok to him to push forward the
n Tk which has mnrie steady proress
t r thirl v-nlne seasons.
It mmlii be pcrmNslhle at this time
tn romment on some of the dltlicultles
wh which a conductor of oratorios
m i' contend In this city, i ine Is quite
pit-nt. and that Is the difficulty of ob
UtnuiK h well balanced chorus. It is
My enough to llnd women who have
'hr lime and Inclination to attend the
r,e, essat r'hr ursals, but It Is hnrd to
s. i mi ii. and hence choruses must
r.'.nK- always be too strons In ft male
ues This is the catie With the. (Jra
'!. Socirt) , and it was never more In
vfMdence than it was last evening. For
i' i Mi Koemmenlch should not be
i n-iiied. for If he were to suppress his
'pi.iti'i. too rigorously he would dlmln-
his total body of tone too much
i-'i",ut pi:tilnK other desirable result.
vciln when the chorus Is not a paid
li'iiK. but Is composed of amateurs, It
v tun always possible to dismiss those
i in not altoKether up to the
faailanl of rmiulrements. Loiik ser-
and faithful devotion have to be
' "lieiiiil. and If the veteran persists
In lamina suiertluous on the stage the
mmlitctwr ninnot help himself. There
i.it been some laudable retirements
' in tle oratorio chorus, and an In
l 'I 'll of flesh new voices. It Is to be
t' 'M1 that Ihe rose piling process will

"'" h. round, sonorous, beautifully
i"'HH.ii and artlHtlcally shaded. Mr.

With a Message
Seeks a Publisher.
The writer desires to hasc published
a small book of about ten thousand
words which he lias written. It has
been made studiou'sl brief in order that
it may be perused a,t one reading, and
it should be sold at retail for fifty cents.
This unconventional, though simple
and direct, method of seeking a pub
lisher need not indicate that there is
anything freakish either in the book or
its author. Nor need it indicate that
the author is willing to have his book
issued by any except a publisher of
The -little book is philosophical and
sociological in its nature, but it is not
of the esoteric, unpopular type. It is
devoted to a propaganda, a sane and in
tensely practical one, which the author
believes is, in its essence, the refinement
of common sense.
Its perusal is certain to be of some
help to all who read it, and to many of
its readers it will be of incalculable
benefit. The book's appeal will be wide
spread, and it will nave a larne sale.

Hor toe dancing is nnother'superlativ)
ability that the Danish dancer possesses.
Her final feat at the end of "Hobert e
Diablo, " when bIio slowly rose until one
foot was in the nir and sho was standing
on tho toes of the other foot, was certainly
a tour do foree of classiu dancing. Tho
lightness of her movements have not
