ANCIENT INSTRUMENT'S GLORY
UPHELD BY HARPIST SETARO.

and lias l'lajerl Since He Was Six Yeais Old.
Harpist, with the liojal Italian Hand
Sicnor Gioannl Fctaro harpist, with the
Hoyal Italian Band, which la now giving
nightly concerts at the Odon, In one of
the few musicians of to-day who maintains
for the harp Its ancient dignity and fore
most place among stringed instruments.
Blnce his sixth jear he has been a harpist,
end avers that as Ions: as he lives he will
continue to be a harpist
Because of Its awkward shipe. or because
of the technical difficulties- which confront
the student who endeavors to draw forth
Its melodies, the harp, for concert solos and
parlor twe, has become Ie and less pop
ular. The great composers of opera, how
ever, were impressed with Its richness of
tone, and considered It Indispensable. Ac
cordingly it Is reauired In all; lull orches
tras, and for this reason the most beautiful
in appearance of all Instruments has not
become wholly unfamiliar.
In a small way, perhaps. Sljmor Setaro.
and the several other harpists in America,
are dolns a work which may turn the tide
the other way and make the harp once
more the fashion In "ill-ladj "a" drawing
room. In Philadelphia, which In now the
home of Slgnor Setaro. he has a class of
a dozen jounc society ladles, whose abil
ity to elicit soft tones with taper fingers
from many strings is regarded as quite an
exceptional accomplishmeit. The numbers
rendered by Signor Setarc. during the
week he has been In St. Louis, were weil
received. It Is quite possible that this re
lntroduetlon to the iarp, which has ibeen
painted In pictures and mentioned tn legend
and poetry more often than any of ltsvslt
tr 'truments, may awaken St. Louis 'ao-
, octj to the fact that here is an old thins

tuuv appear In public Since that time he
has traveled over the entire civilized world.
For j ears ho played in Sauth America, and
when about -2U he met Signor Albanl. who
was a celebrated harpist in Rio Janeiro,
rrom Albanl he gained much, and since
leaving his tutelage he has had no masters,
but has studied alone five or six hours a
Signor Setaro has been much In the
United States, though never previously In
St, Louis He sajs that the American au
diences appreciate the harp, when plaved
with expression, and that he does not un
derstand v hsr the harp should lose Instead
of gain grourd. That the technique Is dif
ficult h admits, but believes that technique
Is alwos difficult, and that when the artist
has mastered the harp he controls an in
strument of limitless possibilities.
.Naturally. Signer Setaro asserts the su
periority of musicians of Southern Europe.
He thinks that music la inborn with the
Italian, and that the Italian gets more true
expression and feeling from mere catgut
ana soundinc-board than the matter-of-fart
German or Englishman- The why of this '
question Is a point which the harpist de- I

The Director-, realizinp; its duty to its stock

the company, concluded to store one million bar

Interesting developments In the battle be

is Charles T. Yerkes's ability to beat Eng

he had only been a-4-lng questions , But
Mr. Yerkes. irrperturbabls and hugely

The Morgans had questioned the correct

based the returns of his svstem. but Mr.

however, be delighted to solve the sums in

OPPORTUNITY'S OPEN DOOR!
The door that leads to Independence for the man or -woman willing to risk a few dollars is the open door of the
tunnel that leads into a vein of sold. i
There are other ways of makins money work for its owner, but If it can be proven that a mine contains gold,
there can be no surer place to pnt some dollars than is offered by the stock of a gold mine that Is jnst being pre
lected, and which shows the true values almost on the portals of the tunnel's mouth.
I am offeiing the investing public just Mich an opportunity in the stock of the new
CRACKER-OREGON GOLD MINE
situated iu the famous Stimpter District in Eastern Oregon a district that bids fair to rival the great 'mining camps
of this country and to surpass most of them in richness and number of I-KODUCIXG GOLD MINES.
This stock is now being offered for the first time, to provide money for developing the property, to run tunnels
and build a mill.
I,et me make mvsolf plain on one point. I am not asking anybody to put money Into a hole in the side of a hilL
I don't deal in PKOSFECTS, using the term In the sense of SOMETHING THAT IS UXCEKTAIN.
I KNOW the property, and have been all over It. I KNOW that it has a vein averaging from ten to forty feet
running straight through these claims for over 3,000 feet, and I have seen samples of the ore which prove It to be of
the free milling variety, so eagerly sought for by miners because it Is so easily treated and so economically reduced.
I KNOW that on all sides of this property some of the greatest producing mines of the time are located, whose veins
are of the same character as ours.
In short, I am offering you stock in a. MINE that only needs capital and good management to bring it into
producing form, a matter ofperhaps 18 months' work to run tunnels, upraises, bnlld mill, etc
The success of the other big mine the Turnagaln In which I am interested, and from the annual meeting of
which I have just returned, shows that I am In a position now, with the valuable experience which the development of
that big mine has given me, to bring this new mine Into producing form, with little delay.
I am not going to ask you to buy n single share, however, until you have read the prospectus which has been
prepared, rrom it you can quickly judge whether I have painted the future of the Cracker-Oregon in too glowing col
ors or not. I believe the reading of It will make you WANT to come In ON THE GROUND FLOOR and make nn in
Cut according to vour cloth If vou can't buy a thousand shares, buy a hundred. But the point to be consid
ered Is, THE TIME TO BUY A GOOD STOCK IS WHEN IT IS LOW.
Buy it in ten-dollar lots, if no more, and the beginning of providing for old age. or bard times, shall have been
rersonaHv. I like gold mine ntook. provided the mine shows true values and there Is no guesswork about estab
lishing the value of a mine in these diys or expert knowledge on mineralogy.
Gold is the one great STAPLE that never fluctuates, and is always In demand at a uniform price per ounce.
I am a large holder of gold mine stock, thns proving my faith by my works.
Can I send you a prospectus?
The price of this stock is 10c to start. It will, of course, be advanced later on. Par value is $1.00, fully paid up,
nonforfeitable and nonassessable.
Vou may buy it as follows:
100 shares $10.00
200 shares 520.00 300 shares $30.00
500 shares $50.00 and so on up.
400 shares $40.00
If you owned .100 shares of stock In the E. & E.. the North Pole. "Red Boy." "Goleonda" or other of the mines
which encircle the Cracker-Oregon, you could quit work to-day and "live happily ever after."
These mines rich to-day went begging for capital to work them a few years ago.
The Columbia, a neighboring mine, five years ago, was purchased for $80,000. To-day It is valued at oyer $3,000,
000.00, AND NOT TOR SALE.
I call this proposition that I offer you to-day a knock at your door-by opportunity.
Vou had better find out more about my offer, which information Is best giien In the prospectus a 32-page illus
trated book, that goes into full particulars.
