J SOCIAL AND PERSONAL. |
The recital by Mrs. Dive-reux Turn
er's class lit vocal music at Dr. L. S.
Fuller's residence on Friday evening
was enjoyed by a largo gathering of
friends of her pupils. The lower
floor of this octagonal home was en
suite in seat the auditors, while the
piano and the performers were in the
centre; there are few homes In Lau
ren;; better suited for entertainments
of the kind.
The program, as rendered embrac
ed the following:
Chorus, "Girls of Servllle," by the
Vocal solo. "Harden of Roses." Miss
Jessie liolt; a sweet ballad rendered
with excellent taste. Miss Bolt is
already widely known as an Instru
mental performer of rare skill and
this glimpse of another talent was
a delight to her many admirers.
Miss Wlllou Oray sang: (a) "In Old
Madrid"; lb) "Hedge Roses.". Both
showed careful study and good ex
Reading by Mrs. J. 11. Tengue. This
as well as a succeeding number by
Mrs. TeagUO was in a linht or hum
orous vein and delighted every one.
Mrs. II. K. Alken sang: (a) "Metra
Serenado"; <i>> "Good night Little
Girl." which were contrasting num
bers in lino voice of even quality with
a range of two octaves.
Miss Emily B. Meng's solos were:
(tit "Rose Song"; <b> "I Love You
Truly". These were characterized by
good cnum lution and sung in an easy,
natural style that was very pleasing.
Reading, Mrs. J, H. Teague.
Miss Mary Todd sang: (ai ?Swal
lows": (b> "Hod give Thee Sleep." in
a high soprano voice of rich quality.
Mrs. Alken sang: (a! "Roses. Every
where"; (b) "My Aln Folk." Mrs.
Alkcn's voice has delighted audiences
before but the melody of this simple
Scotch air went straight to the hearts
of her beaters and she has seldom
BUUg with liner effect.
Miss Josephine Fuller's solos were:
(a) "Angels serenade"; tbi "Sum
mer." Miss Fuller has a beautiful
soprano and sang both these more
dlfllcull numbers in a brilliant man
ner. During the winter she will con
tinue the study of voice in Baltimore,
Trio; "Twilight," by the class.
Mrs. Turner as an instructor and
accompanyist is thorough and accur
ate and all who were favored with an
Invitation for this occasion, could un
derstand the progress and Improve
ment all her pupils exhibited. After
six weeks in N'ew York she will con
tinue her clnsses here.
On Thursday afternoon Miss Rosalie
Franks was at home to the members
of the Mysterious Twenty-two club at
her home on South Harper street, in
a most enjoyable entertainment. The
young ladies were requested to "bring
their sewing alohg." and the after
noon was spent most profitably and
pleasantly. Miss Franks is a charm
ing hostess, and her guests enjoyed
her hospitality to the full. During
the afternoon a salad course with
coffee and fruits were served.
Those present were; Misses Willie
Mae Childless. Annie and Elizabeth
Rlchey, Zolene Cray, Lynt Jones,
