The Musical Research Club"
of St. Katharine's School held its
fortnightly meeting last Saturday
morning, ine program, arranged
by Mrs. Laura Phillips Cole, was
one ol rare taste ana beauty, as
well as of real instruction. The
subject was "Verdi," and his most
popular opera, "II Trovatore."
First, Miss Hobson gave a charm
ing, informal talk on "The Life of
Verdi, and the Story of the Opera."
Next, a piano duet, "Fantasia, from
II Trovatore," was splendidly ren
dered by Mrs. Cole and Miss Hob
son. Then, to the soft, sweet ac
companiament (by Misses Wren and
Eleanor Peason) of the well known
air from II Trovatore, "Ah, I Have
Sighed to Rest Me," Mrs. Cole re
cited "Aux Italiens" by Bulwer
Lytton. Responding to the storm
of applause evoked by this reading,
Mrs. Cole delighted her audience
with another, called "Molly,"
which she gave with such' an irre
sislable naturalness and charm that
the girls were unwilling to let her
retire. At last, however, the pres
ident restored order and the Club
was dismissed tili Saturday after
next. Not, however, before the
girls had enthusiastically assured
Mrs. Cole that the programme was
one of tbe most delightful tbat bad
ever been arranged for their Club,
