Or. Young's Lecture: "The Duties of
PuiBuant to notice given last week,
Rev. Dr. Young, pastor of the Methodist
Church, delivered a sermon on San-
day evening in his church. There were
in attendance, besides the regular communicant,
members of all other churches
in the city, students of Madison Institute,
Central University, and officers
of the county and citv Government,
who thus honored themselves in honoring
the speaker with their presence. In
all the borders of our populous county
there is no one mure competent to discuss
the grave subject named Certainly
there is none who can speak
with such earnestness and intelligence,
if we take practice and not theory into
consideration. For Dr. Young is not
only a student of affairs but a man of
affairs, active, aggressive, untiring in
his work of uplifting humanity. His
voice is heard far and wide in advocacy
of a reform of our sociological conditions,
and hence his words have weight
with those who view with alarm the
tendency of the times to an aristocracy
of wealth, the disappearance ol the
middle class," and the debauchery ol
the ignorant, indolent and vicious elements
of our citizenship.
The Clisiax is unable to give more
than a paragraphic outline of the lecture,
but this may serve to show along
what lines and on what plane Dr.
Young pitched his remarks These extracts

in its true meaning? 'Il is that
civic organization by which people cooperate
for mutual protection and the
security of the common welfare. A

Our responsibility to this corporation
is the same, for our security, protection,
and common welfare.
Ignorance of our duties and responsibilities

the worst obstacle to progiess.
Many view the corporation a created

For the fourth const cutive time has
the Richmond Military Band Concert
been postponed out of courtesy to
some other entertainment, and we
make this unsolicited appeal, especially
to those organizations to
whom the band gave way, to patronize
tho hitter's grand concert on Tuesday
night, March 1. Prof. Minier has
not only the finest organization ever
iu Richmond, but he will add other
features to ensure an attractive program.
If you do not care to hear the
Professor wring music from a stove
pipe nor listen to Monsignor Hugh
Tevis on the saxophone, you might
like o hear the vocal quartette, by
Mrs. W. G. White. Mrs. G. W. Piekels,
Mersrs. Mitchel and Aonold, o r
Miss Pattie's solo, or Miss MacMillan's
thrilling recitation, or Mr. Flora's
bass solos, or the orchestra
of little girl musicians And there
are dozens of other features, such as
mandolin, guitar, banjo, cornet, flute
and clarinet solos, an orchestra
composed entirely of mandolins with
a novel accompaniment with brass
This entertainment is exclusively for
the benefit of the band whose members
have spent $1,000 for instruments
and are perfecting an organization of
twenty-two pieces that will eclipse
anything of the kind in Richmond or
Kentucky. They have- spent their
money and their time and the product
is a band which wo should as a
city unitedly encourage, support and
take pride in. The members are sober,
industrious, deserving young
men, possessing undoubted musical
talent, and having the advantage of
the ablest and most conscientious director,
wo are not surprised that Prof.
Minier guarantees one of the finest
musical exhibitions ever given here.
Attend this concert. Show your interest
in this excellent enterprise.
Give your little mite toward establishing
it firmly iu our midst. Go!
