HARRY GORSON CLARKE'S
NOW FAMOUS FIANCEE
It is not generally kn'own that Harry
Corson Clarke, the comedian headliner
at the Orpheurn this week, was once
engaged to Minnie Maddern, in the days
before she met Harrison 'Grey Fiske.
Yet so it was and the happening of it
Minnie Maddern was a prominent
member of the company owned and
managed by Harry Clarke's father. She
was not playing Heads,'' it is true, and
the positioW of leading woman was at
that time full of awe to her. Her own
position was, nevertheless, one of im
Young Clarke used to spend his vaca
tions with his father, en tour, and he
Boon succumbed to the lady's charms.
For weeks he lived in the agoWy which
the fear of unrequited affection brings
to the heart of even the most ardent
and devout loverand none could doubt
the depth of Clarke's devotion.
His hard-earned cash was willingly
spent in offerings of flowers, and in
those many little attentions so dear to
the heart of a woman. At last, one day,
he summoned up courage to speak. His
suit, so ardently pressed, was well re
ceived and betrothal followed, but for
many reasons it was deemed best to
keep the glad fact from everyone and
the pair lived in the happiness of the
knowledge they alone possessed.
Fate, nowever, ceased to smile on
them, and Nemesis, in the person of
Clarke's father, stepped in. Bluntly he
announced that the matter must stop
at once. He had other plans for his son
thaw the contracting of a marriage
early in life, and further communica
tions between the twain were sternly
The young people were not so easily
daunted. Young Clarke announced that
lie did Ufot care if the "governor" did
cut him off with a dollar: he could work
for his living. While Minnie Maddern
was quite emphatic in declaring that
she would go thru any privation rather
than be taken from his side. A plan
of elopment was devised. The two were
lo disappear quietly after the perform
ance in a certain town', and no irate
parent could separate them. Everything
was ready for the flight and the fateful
day drew near. Nothing could have
been more elaborate than the precau
tions young Clarke took to prevent the
miscarriage of the plot. But once more
fate scowled upon the youttg people.
In some mysterious manner, the
secret got out and once more the rather
stepped in to stop the course of true
love. Nothing but absolute separation,
the father decided, would ever cure the
case, and so he sent his son some thou
sand miles awayback to school, in
fact, for he was 8 years old, and Mintaie
Maddern was 6, and the Eva of Clarke's
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" company.
CAME TO BE WRITTEN
Bobert Edeson's characterization of
the college-bred Indiato, the hero of
Strongheart," the comedy drama by
"William C. de Mille, in which this popu
lar star has won the success of nis
career, ranks as one of the most im
portant contributions to the season's
gallery of stage portraitures.
Since the day of Edwin Forrest's
Metomora, the primitive American has
been a favorite stage character altho
usuallv utilized as a subsidiary figure.
But the Carlisle "grad"'has up to th
present time failed to impress the play-
T\ right with his dramatic possibilities,
Botvs ithstanding that he has proved an
appealing type to the novelist. Mr.
Edeson labored in vain to convince our
dramatists that the theme of the edu
cated red man's love for the woman
who is not of his race which has figured
largely in the news of the day con
tained elements of unusualness and con
Finally his manager, Henry B. Harris,
secured "William C. de Mille, son of the
late H. C. de Mille, who collaborated
with David Balasco in "The Wife,"
"The Charitv Ball," and other Lyceum
theater successes, a young author will
ing to undertake the construction of a
play based upon this idea. So to de
Mille has fallen the honor of being the
first author to present in "Strong
heart the Carlisle "grad," as the
dominant personage of a stage story.
Strongheart is a full-blood Indian
the son of a mighty chief. His tribe,
appreciating the value of the white
man's civilization, sends him to Car
lisle and later to Columbia university
where the scenes of Mr. de Mille's play
are laid. There he becomes a leader in
the sports, a football hero and, because
of his sincerity and simple heartedness,
a general favorite with his classmates.
A sharer in their athletics, a member of
their fraternities, welcomed to their
tomes, Strongheart has become as one
of themspeaks their tongue, thinks
their thoughts, is governed by their
ideals, their desires, their faith. What
more natural than that he should chose
his wife from among them? But here
I the prejudice of centuries'' steps in
and ruthlessly breaks up his dreams.
The white man will not give his sister
to an Indian and tho the woman be
cause of her great love would forsake
mil to follow him, fate again interferes
for the Indian will not acknowledge a
white woman as the daughter of their
Mr. Edeson as the proud son of a

previously appeared has' added ma
terially to his artistic repute.
ACTORS' LAST WORDS
RECALLED BY IRYING'S
The singular appositeness of Sir
Henry Irving's last spoken words on
the stage shortly before his tragically
sudden death, "Into thy hands, O Lord!
Into thy hands," has served to recall
leveral similar instances which are re
corded in English .theatrical an'nals.
Peterson, a contemporary of Garrick,
while appearing in ''Measure for Meas-
ure," expired in the arms of a fellow
actor, his last words being: "EeaSon
thus with life. If I do lose thee, I lose
a thing that none but fools would
keep." Harley, who was playing Bot
tom in A Midsummer Night's
Dream,'' passed away after uttering the
drowsy speech: "I "have an exposition
of sleep come upon me."
Almost as Irving's was Edmund
Kean's exit. He was playing Othello
to the Iago of his son at Covent garden.
After uttering the words, "Othello's
occupation's gone," he broke down.
"Get me off, Charles," he gasped to
his son. "I'm dying!" and soon after
wards breathed his last. Phelps' last
words before the footlights were:
"Farewell, a long farewell to all my
greatness.'' At this point in the speech
of Cardinal Wolsey he collapsed and
aever acted again.
Eyer since oar marriage
I'm unhappy, don't yon ace
For wlfey does the cooking
And her cooking's doing me.
FTER the musical treats of last
week, this week will, no
doubt, seem a triflle dull.
There are, however, enough enter
tainments of a different character to
relieve the tedium and whet the appe
ite for some of the good things that
are coming. The sole musical event oi
especial importance this week is the
engagement of Harold Bauer, the pian
ist, at Plymouth church. Bauer's ap
Eearance will be no novelty, since he
as been heard here as many as six
times in the last few years. It is to
his credit that he wears well, and as he
oldqrand fatterthe quality ot
is music improves.
Those who attended the Eames con
cert last Monday evening were agree
ably surprised at the magnificent sing
ing of Signor de Gorgoza, whose work
was ranked^ as high by many as the
famous singer with whom he sang. A
surprise of that sort is so rare as to be
noteworthy, and is, besides, a great de
light. The uniform excellence of the
entire company, indeed, was a surprise.
Too frequently it has been the custom
for a singer with an established repu
tation or worldwide extent, to "pad
out" the program with musicians of
very mediocre quality. This was not
so with Eames, and to her hearty
thanks is due.
The playing of Hugo Heermann grows
with the recollection of his clean, whole
some work. Seldom has such playing
been heard here, and the artist himself,
is withal, so simple and unpretentious,
as indeed are so many great men, that
it is a double delight. I will be pleas
ant news to many of her friends to
know that Miss Rose Wagner, who for
some years has been a pupil of Mrs.
Carlvle M. Scott, played for Mr. Heer
mann while here, and that she expects
to study with him, leaving this coun
try during January. She will but add
another to the galaxy of love Minne
apolitans who have studied the violin
in the different centers of Europe.
It is about time for the faculty con
certs of the different schools to occur,
and they will begin next week, the
John school concert having been post
poned until the 22d.
HAROLD BAUER AT PLYMOUTH.
Harold Bauer, the celebrated pianist,
will appear in recital next Tuesday
evening at Plymouth church. This will
be the leading musical event of th&
week, and will be greatly enjoyed by all
lovers of fine piano music.
Bauer is a musical genius of the first
water. His mother was an English
woman of decided musical gifts, and
his father a German violinist of more
than ordinary attainments. Young
Bauer evinced a great taste for music
as a boy. and it was early determined
that he should follow in his father's
footsteps and become a violinist. He
was sent to Paris with that end in
view. Here it was that the event oc
curred which changed the whole tenor
of the boy's life.
One day he met the great Polish pian
ist, Paderewski who was then in the
first heyday of his public life. He was
so charmed with the nativete of the lad
and his evident taste for music that he
urged him to adopt the piano as the
instrument upon which to develop his
genius. Feeling the truth of Pader
ewski's arguments, and perhaps a little
overawed by his greatness, young Bauer
determined to adopt his suggestions,
and thus began his career as a pianist.
No one will ever know whether the
world has lost a great violinist, but the
whole world does know that a great
pianist has been gained.
It took years of patient study under
Paderewski himself and other great
virtuosi, before the lad was considered
ready to give a good account of him
self from an artistic standpoint, but
each year witnessed a steady progress
his work. Some six years ago he
first came to Minneapolis, almost un
heralded, and played two recitals in the
First Unitarian church. Those recitals
were sufficient to Batisfy the musicians
who heard him that a new aspirant to
pianistic honors had "arrived" and
must be reekoned with. He was a
technician of consummate skill. His
intelligence was equal to the greatest
demands upon his interpretative genius.
He grasped the idea of the composer
and placed it before his hearers with
such certainty of correct understanding
and such adequate technique, that he
was gladly hailed as worthy of a place
among the elect.

Such was Bauer six years ago. Since
then, he has grown broader in his musi
cal culture, aeeper his experience,
and his technique has become more and
more impeccable. His pianistic talent
extends all directions, whether he is
called upon to play a classic Beethoven,
a Liszt transcription with its tremend
ous technical difficulties, a Chopin
Nocturne with its exquisite sentiment,
or a delicate Mendelssohn. His program
for Tuesday evening is superb, em
bodying a Beethoven sonata, two Cho
pin numbers, and a couple of modern
Russian piano compositions, never be

APOLLO'S FIRST CONCERT SOON.
At the first coneert of the Apollo
club, which occurs Nov. 28 at the First
Baptist church, the club will present a
varied program, the chief number of
which is the cantata, "The Farewell
of Hiawatha," by Arthur Foote, the
eminent American composer. This beau
tiful composition is descriptive of ,the
aboriginal time of Minnesota and de
picts the agony of Hiawatha after the
death of Minnehaha, the opening scene
with old Nokomis being especially note
worthy. The part of Hiawatha will be
taken by Hal J. Stevens, the popular
barytone of this city, whose singing is
always a treat.
Another beautiful number will be
"Oh, Time of Blooming Roses," by
that master of harmony, Richard Wag
ner, with barytone solo. "Defiance,
by Attenhofer, is a number bringing
out the full sonorous quality of the
entire club. This, also, nas a barytone
solo, which is to be sung by E. S.
Hedman, a newcomer to Minneapolis
musical circles. The balance of the
program will be made up of folk songs

The University Girls' Glee club will

voices has been made. A fine lot of
voices has been secured to work with
and the best glee club the university
has ever had is confidently expected.
The club "has sent for its new music,

A TEAPOT TEMPEST AT THE "U."
A tempest in a teapot has been
stirred up at the university over the
action of the "U" band at the recent
Minnesota-Wisconsin football game. A
disappointed enthusiast^ took occasion
to express himself last Thursday thru
the editorial columns of the Minnesota
Daily, accusing the band of being com
posed of "quitters," and asserting
that the band ought to be the biggest
instrument of rooting on the field."
Naturally talk of this sort, which is
said to have appeared in more than one
issue of the Daily, made the band boys
Director B. A. Rose, when the matter
was called to his attention, took occa
sion to explain that both he and the
band had explicitly obeyed Manager
Reed's instructions, and during the
halves laid down on the side-lines so
as not to trouble the persons in the
boxes. The Wisconsin band, he asserts,
was given the same instructions, which
were not obeyed. Mr. Rose admits that
the band is the best college band in
the country, but denies that there is
the least shadow of disloyalty.
A NOTABLE FRENCH PIANIST.
Raoul Pugno, the eminent French
pianist, is to make his debut in New
York on Nov. 18, playing with the
Russian Symphony orchestra, the Rach
maninoff ''Concerto," which is a nov
elty here. In fact this is only one of
the new compositions which Pugno has
prepared for nis coming American tour.
Another new work for piano and or
chestra which he wiU play is Cesar
Franck's symphonic variations. This
is said to be one of the most clear of
this composer's works, is thordly pian
istic, and in every respect a notable
contribution to modern rianofort lit
erature. Still another remarkably bril
liant work in which he will be heard
is the Saint-Saens' fantasie, "Africa,"
the themes of which are oriental in
character, with a certain refined bril
liance that is essentially charming. This
too is said to be another of the most
satisfactory of modern works for piano
and orchestra. These works have all
been performed in public by M. Pugno
at his series of concerts in London
last May. Pugno will appear here with
the Symphony orchestra, March 9.

Methodist church, and was noted for his
original and familiar expressions in pra

North Yarmouth, a township near Gor
