It will be remembered that the 1
barn and stables, including live

were burned on Friday night of s
last week. This fire, which is t
believed to have been of incendiary I
-origin, was the last in a long list of c
burnings in that immediate com- a

anunity were naturally very much p
wrought up over the matter. a
Whether or not there was any a
crowd at Warren Duncan's home t

PIPB ORGAN RECITAL.
The Description of the Big Pipe Organ.
Recital to Be Held Monday Night,
The erection of the pipe organ in
tle Lutheran Church ot the Re
deemer during the past week has
been an event of great interest to
the people of Newberry, and many
have visited fhe church to see the
work, which was completed last
evening by Mr. Joseph Leisch. All
have been received courteously by
Mr. Leisch, who is not only one of
the best pipe organ experts in the
world, but also a most obliging gen
After correspondence with many
pipe organ builders and consulta
tions with specialists and organists,
the contract' was given to M. P.
Moller, of Hagerstown, Maryland,
and would have been completed by
the specified time, September 1st,
had not a strike, ordered by the j
Organ Builder's Association, de
layed the work. Mr. Moller's in
structions to his workmen were to
put their best work on this organ,
and no better instrument of its size
has ever come from the factory.
Mr. Moller is himself a Lutheran, c
an active member of the Hagers- c
town church and was a delegate
from the Maryland Synod to the
General Synod at its last conven
. The organ is in fact two organs,
the Swell organ above the Great or
gall. The Great organ contains the
following pipes: 8 foot Open Diapa- c
son, metal 61 pipes; 8 foot Dulci- a
ana, metal 61 pipes; 8 foot Melodia, c
wood 61 pipes; 8 foot Doppel Floete,
wood 49 pipes; 4 foot Flute t
D'Amour, wood and metal 61 pipes; t
4 Principal, metal 61 pipes; 2 foot
Piccolo, metal 6i pipes. The Swe!l
organ contains the following pipes:
8 foot Violin Diapason, metal 61
pipes; 8 foot Stopped Diapason
wood 61 pipes; 8 foot Aeolina,
metal 61 pipes; 4 foot Flaute Tra
verso, wood 61 pipes; 2 foot Flau- I
tino, metal 61 pipes; 8 foot Oboe c
Gamba, metal 49 pipes. 'I be Pedal d
organ contains the following pipes: f
16 food Bourdon, wood 30 pipes; I
16 foot Lieblich Gedacht, wood 30
The three organs have together i
21 steps, 30 notes and 799 Pipes c
with six pedal movements. It will
be run by a water motor of latest
and most improved construction,
and will consume little miore than a
barrel of water at a service.
It is almost the invariable custom
to instal such an organ with a re
cital, that all interested may haver
the opportunity to hear and enjoyf
the power, scope and beauty of itst
music. How best to arrange fori
this was the problem fronting tihe
organ committee. Should the doors
be thrown open to tihe general pub-]
lic? The crowd might be so great]
that members of the church would1
be excluded. Should thle memibers
of the congregation alone he admit- t
ted ? That would be selfish. Should
the miemlbers of the congregation
and1( a selected number of their
friends be invited? Sonme might
thus he overlooked. It was finally
decided b)y the comnmlittee with tilej
consent of the Church Council and
Diaconate to put the admission oni
a financial basis. No money will

Professor Charles R. Fisher, Mus
D)., of the Presbyterian College,
Charlotte, N. C. has kindly con
sented to visit Newberry and give
this recital next Monday niight.
Dr. Fishier is a mualn g-riadut
of Leeds University and also of
other European institutions. He
received the title of Doctor of Music
from Trinity University, Toronto.
This is a title held by very few
musicians in America. Of Dr
Fisher's art in bringing out all the
possibilities of a pipe organ too
much could scarcely be said.
The organ committee is composed
Af Prof. W. K. Sligh, Chas. E.
3unimer, Prof. S. L. Powell, Dr.
f. M. Kibler, W. P. Houseal, and
Rev. W. L. Seabrook.
