Mme. Nordica Denies
A curious impression has arisen In
come parts of the, West, where Mme.
Dllllan Nordica is making a concert
tour, because she has Included Ethel
bert Nevln's charming little negro song,
"Mighty Lnk, a Rose," in her reper
tory. Tho words by Frank L. Stanton,
nru In the quaint dialect of tho South,
cm negro, and tho composer of "Nar
cissus" intertwined them with a mel
ody which appeals allko to tho South
ern "mammy" and the most anient
devotee of Wagner.
And yet the diva has felt called upon
to deny that she Is singing "ragtime."
Nevln whoso musical genius was un
doubted, by no means established a
precedent In borrowing from tho negro
melody school while constructing n
classic. Dr. Dvorak's "Now World
Symphony" Is full of such lullabies as
the Southern "darky" loves to hear.
But nobody ever suspected Dr. Dvor
ak of composing "ragtime,"
"Tho songs I sing outsldo of opera,"
Bald Mme. Nordica, "either belong to
tho classical andromantlc literature or
repertory or they represent the now
school of composition In tho classical
field. No concert singer of any emi
nence sings popular music
nnd popular music in this' coun
try for several years past, ns n natlvo

That She Sings Ragtime.
tho masses; or it may bo a reflex of
tho peculiar and plaintive melody of
our colored population which has af
fected the peoplo through sympathy
and through a peculiar molodic strain.
But nil this as a question of popular
music Is entirely outside of my activ
ity either in opera or concert work.
"Tho particular song of Ethelhcrt
Nevln, 'Mighty Lak, a Rose,' belongs
to tho best class of tho latter day
American compositions, nnd Is so dls.
tlnct from coon songs or 'ragtime' as
to make It a surprise, lu the estimation
'of musicians, that any ono should Iden.
tlfy It with such popular music. It is
n song to which justice can only bo
done by a cultured singer or musician;
otherwise It would become super-sen.
tlmentnl and useless. Of course I am
very much surprised that such distinc
tions nro not made, nnd that papers
will state that I have sung such pongs
ns are adapted for vaudeville nnd for
the street organ. This Is exaptly what
they nro doing. Of cqurso In America
here there nro peoplo who havo no
knowledge of classical music, and who
don't understand tho contrast between
It nnd the popular song and march,
nnd It Is difficult to explain theso
distinctions to thorn. After, a whllo,
when they become more cultured in
music, they will nppreclato tho vasl
dlfferonco between the popular song
and the classical song which Is adapted
for tho concert stage. As for 'rag.
tlmo' and coon songH, whllo they may
bo very pleasnnt for tho tlmo being,
they cannot of course bo permanent,
nnd they can never be ut Hired In their

In tho coso of Conrad O. Fernsel, audi

recites that tho portion of tho road

J. Bull Refuses to Be Held Up
By Its Organizers.
New Orleans, La., Dec. 10. A mule
trust has been formed, growing out
of the enormous English demand for
the American mule. Leading mule
men from all over the country got
Into conference last week and agreed
to advance the price from 5100 to
$115, thinking the British would take
them away, but John Bull has kicked
over tho traces and will not pay It,
and it Is said will go to South Ameri
ca for mules.
The trust has probably killed a bus
lncss that has brought millions Into
the United States. There Is weeping
and walling among the mule men who
hover about this port for orders. They
now realize their mistake.

A poor complexion Is usually the re

method of throwing off the poisons
wheh the bowels faled to remove. De
