CLARK IN SPLENDID RECITAL ,
CHARLES W. CLARK IS A
great and flcinhed sieger, and
thla be capably demonstrated
to those who we r fortunate
enough to tear him at Augustana col
lege last night, where he appeared In
recital as one of the numbers on the
conservatory artists' course. Mr. Clark
Banc four groups of songs and was
forced to respond with as many en
core. The work of Gordon Campbell
at the organ was of high order, and a
pleasing feature was the playing of ac
companiments without notes. In his
four piano solos he showed that be can
also be ranked as an artist
Leoncavalle'a Prologue from Pagll
accl was Mr. Clark's first song. The
sounds which came from bis lips were
vibrations of real music smooth and
well-rounded tones and the air was
fairly alive with his song.
Although Mr. Clark rendered elec
tions 1n three different languages, he
was perfectly at home In each. His
enunciation was perfect, yet be did
not allow that to interfere with the
dramatic feeling he put into some of
the heavier numbers. Mr. Clark's
facial expressions were quite an asset
to nls dramatic Impersonations.

love lyrics by Blair Fairchlld in a very
pleasing way, and also the group of

full of expression. In response to the
spontaneous applause which he receiv
ed after the rendition of this group, he
sang "Danny Deever" as an encore, in
the manner in which it should be given.
"The Lowest Trees Have Tops"
(Beale), "Memories" and "The Pil
grimage" (Dunham), and "The Eagle"
(Carl Busch) composed the next group
which Mr. Clark eang. Here also the
pleasing qualities f his voice were

DeBusty, one of the greatest French
song composers. Mr. Clark again dem
onstrated that he was equally as capa
ble of putting a daluty touch to his
singing as ce was dramatic feeling.
"Lee Cloches" and "Mandolin" brought
forth much applause.
Mr. Clark appeared to very good ad
vantage in his rendu ion of the five
German ongs. These he sang with
much feeling and expression. "Der
Sandtracger" (Bungert) was given In
a very realistic manner and It was very
much appreciated by the audience.
"Der DoppelgoenRer" and "Erlkonig"
(Schubert) gave the artist ample op
portunity to display bis great dramatic
ability, and In rendering these two
songs he was not lacking in any of the
fire and passion necessary to sing them
properly. He was forced to respond
with an encore.
Besides dintinguishing himself as an
accompanist, Gordon Campbell render
ed four selections on the piano in an
artistic manner. His technique is ex
cellent and he Js possensed of a deli
cate and musical touch. Prelude in C
Sharp Minor (Rachmaninoff) and Noc
turne (Chopin) were especially well
riven. He responded with two encores.

A Home Eemedy for
Wrinkled, Saggy Skin
FINDS GIRL READY.
(From Beauty and Health.)
The famous saxollte lotion recom
mended by beauty specialists for re
moving wrinkles and for reducing dis
tended pores, can be made at home.
Ask your druggist for saxollte in iow
dered form, X ox., and pint witch
hasel. Dissolve the powder in the
witch hazel and bathe the face, Beck
and bands in the solution. Results are
remarkable and instantaneous. The
skin tightens, and this naturally re
duces the wrinkles, as well as creases
or folds about the neck, cheeks or
bands. The tissue beneath the skin
also becomes firmer and more solid.
One feels much refreshed and ex
hilarated after using this truly won
derful preparation. Its continued use
tor only a short time makes one look
five or ten year younger.

Is separated from her legacy by a
few hundred years, but she is con
fident of getting near it.
At the end of the 30 years' war
Field Marshal Paul Wertz died in
Hamburg, leaving chests of gold and
a few relatives. There also was a
housekeeper, Johanne von der Plank
en, who had a nine-year-old son. She
produced a document purporting to
be the marshal's will, giving the gold
to her boy.
There was a long row in which
Amsterdam and Hamburg officials en
gaged and at the end the woman col
lected the inheritance. Then it was
found the will was fraudulent and
the was sent to the penitentiary.
There was another row and the
money was lodged in Hamburg, where
the story has it, it has since remain
ed. A few years ago an army of
Wertzes in Germany organized an
"Alliance for the Recovery of the In
heritance of Field Marshal Paul
Wertz," but the alliance died.
Then the American heirs, 90
strong, most of them spelling their
name differently, organized the Wertz
Family association at a meeting at
Rock Island, 111., last fall, and enlist
ed 705 other members, not heirs, but
willing to join anything with $225,
000,000 at the other end.
The Wertz force has now raised
$238 in America and a similar
amount in Germany and has engaged
a Dusseldorf attorney. Mrs. Snider is
