that robbers had been at work. They

the rear windows, leaving nothing of
value behind them.

When her day's woik had been

worked in the family for ten years

Into the house and then, thinking it
was Karl, she continued past the

other neighbor walked by, saw the
lights burning in the downstairs

party there and walked on.

And while these people walked by
at the early evening hour, the rob

worked quickly. From all signs,
they picked the rooms of Mrs.
Zwicker and her daughter first. Ev

HAROLD BAUER'S GENIUS.
THE CHICAGO RECORD-HERALD
in speaking of the performance of Har
old Bauer with the Thomas orchestra
says: "One of the most interesting
features of the Thomas orchestra pro
pram vesterday was the Schumann
concerto played by Harold Rauer. Mr.
; Rauer provoked bv his playing the
at nearintr on ti e concert staae. of this
land or any other land. That'convic-
tion w-as reimpressed by his appear-
iarce yesterday. The performance of
the great masterpiece of Sc humann's
iwork was tilled with beautiful under-j
standing of all the poetry and charm j
'that are inhereiU in the work itself, j
Never at any moment did Mr. Bauer
seek to push forward the virtuoso to
the detriment of the music which he
played and there were many -situations
in which he assayed his pianissimo so
that the orchestra might say the better
that which Schumann had given it to
say. The concerto demands much
ircgi nation of style from the perform
er who would discover the secret of
its loveliness. The hard touch, the for
tissimo attack, the passion for showing
off are foreign to his art. Mr. Bauer
brous-ht a sinsrularlv refined and ai-
; ealing touch to the reading of
piece. The r.i'isic meant to him a cap
tivating thing full of poetry and ro
mance end in its turn he made them
clear to those who heard him.
Mr. Bauer w-ill appear in recital at
Augustaca auditorium tomorrow even

itory of music.
