Kansas' suffragists are- going to be
rather lucky in Chicago parade af
fairs, because of the fortuitous cir
cumstance that Cyrus McCormick III
was sent to Wichita in connection
with the business of the interests of
the McCormicks of Chicago. He
brought with him his young bride,
who belonged to a distinguished Chi
cago family, and she also happens to
be an advocate of political rights for
women. She not only is a suffragist,
but she works at it. The McCormick
women of Chicago are numbered
among the influential suffragists of
their state. So, when it is announced
that Mrs. Cyrus Hall McCormick, of
Chicago, the mother-in-law of the
Wichita woman, would give a garden
party and ball at her palatial home on
the lake shore, for some of the parade
women, a liberal supply of tickets
were sent out for distribution among
the Kansas women. The party is to
be an invitation affair, and while
there will be hundreds in attendance,
not nearly all of those who will be in
Chicago, can expect a place at the
party. j
About eighteen women have aireaay
arranged to go from Wichita, and
others will probably decide on taking
the trip. A special car from Wichita
will meet the special from Topeka, at
Kansas City, there to Join the suf
frage special on to Chicago. A dele
gation from Hutchinson will come to
Topeka to make the trip with the To
peka women. All of the officers of
the Wichita Equal Suffrage associa
tion except one, will go to Chicago.
Mrs. Dunlap, of Emporia, and Mrs.
Fannie Cooper Atkinson are among
the women of the state who will join
the party going from Topeka. Mrs.
W. Y. Morgan, of Hutchinson, presi
dent of the Kansas Equal Suffrage
association, is arranging for the dele
gation from Hutchinson. :
The delegation will leave Topeka

and the garden party at the McCor
mick place will be held the evening of
June 6, and the parade will be held
at four o'clock in the afternoon or

A new plan for presenting music,
or rather, . cpera. to the public has
been devised by Havrat Hubbard, and
he appeared in Topeka for the first
time Monday afternoon and evening
at the high school auditorium. He
came here under the auspices of the
music department of the Topeka Fed
eration of Women.
He gave what he calls an opera
logue, which means that he reads the
important lines of the libretto, tilling
in, here anu there, with explanations,
and during some of the most dra
matic passages he is accompanied by
piano music, from the score of the
opera.
Mr. Hubbard prefaced his imper
sonation by some remarks on the
American and English way of having
their opera in a foreign fongue. He
handled his subject without gloves
and he minced it not a bit. "Why
should we have opera in a language
cannoi understand '" he aslcer!
"The Germans and the French and
the Austriang and Bohemians have
their opera in their own tongue, but
we and our equally stupid English
cousins must take our opera in Ger
man and Italian and French any
thing but English. I grant that our
translations are not good, but they

Mrs. Hiram P. Dillon entertained at
a reception yesterday afternoon at ber
borne on Harrison street, about seventy
five guests. Mrs. Dillon was assisted
in receiving and entertaining by Mrs.
Kugene Quinton, Mrs. W. A. L. Thomp
son, Mrs. Charles Fargo of Chicago,
Mrs. Bennett It. Wheeler, Mrs. T. B.
Sweet, Miss Thresaa Kossiogton, Miss
Emilv Tewksbury. The afternoon's
perfect sunshine after the show added
to the enjoyment of the pleasant com-
any within. Mrs. Dillon's hospitality
eft nothing to be desired by the guests.
Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hudson gave a
pretty seven o'clock tea last evening,
complimentary to Mr. and Mrs. Fred
B. Bonebrake. The front parlor was
decorated with Jacqueminot roses. In
the dining room were pink roses, an im
mense bouquet of them on the table, the
center piece being embroidered in the"
same flower. All through the house
were roses in -profusion. Fourteen sat
down to a course tea. They were: Mr.,
and Mfi. Fred Bonebrake, Mr. and Mrs.
George Crawford, Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Kdson, MiBSes Mary I.akln. Mary
Thompson, Margaret Dudley, Messrs.
Theodore Hammatt, Paul Torriugton,
Ed McBride.
The V and I Flower Mission will meet
with Mrs. Frank Holliday Tuesday
afternoon for the last time this season.
There will be a musical at the home
f Judge and Mrs. C. G. Foster this
evening complimentary to Mr. W. C. B.
Seeboeck and Mr. W. V. Dahhen.
There was a very enjoyable dancing
party at the Union Pacific hotel last
night.
would be good if we insisted on hav
ing good ones, instead of allowing
them to be made by any hack trans
lator who happened to turn his hand
to the task. The Germans get good
translations from the French and
Italian; and we could get it from any
language. The objection that if it
were sung we would not understand
it anvhow is all foolishness. Good
singers can learn to sing so that every
word can be understood, and they
would do it. if we let them under'
stand we paid for nothing less. The
artists would object? Yes, because
musical artist's first business is to ob
ject to everything that is the way
thev prove they are tempermental
but they will stop objecting when the
pay check stops. They tell us that
the English is not singable. It is not
so liquid as the Italian, but it has .a
greater strength than that language
by its consonants. It is more singable
than the German, and as much so as
the FrenSh. Geraldine Farrar says
that it is not adapted to song. Not
for her, to be sure, if she sings her
English as poorly as she does her
German.
"Men will .not sit through an op
era because they can not understand
it, and they -refuse to pretend. They
will go to aspera when they do under
stand, because the American man loves
big projects and enterprises, and
opera is the biggest thing in music.
It is not true that the music is ail
of opera. The music is incidental to
the drama, just as the lights and the
costumes are. You do not need to
know one note from another to like
grand opera- You get at the under
standing of it through the door of
the drama, and in no other way. The
American people have been shut off
from opera by the veil of a foreign
language We know a great deal about
opera stars, but we know nothing of
opera. We have a false feeling that
if we enjoy a piece of music it -is not
quite up to standard. There has been
too much twaddle and foolishness
talked about the divine art of music.
It is no more a divine art than any
other piece of creative work well
done."
Mr. -Hubbard has his heart set upon
making the people of this country fa
miliar with opera, and he has chosen
his method of reading the text in Eng
lish to his audiences and giving them
the music of it by his pianist. He
takes with him Claude Gotthels, a
thoroughly competent and finished
musician. Mr. Gotthels began last
nignt 8 program with two numbers by
Liszt. Forrest Murmers and the Sixth
Hungarian Rhapsody. Mr. Hubbard
then made his remarks on English
opera, insisting that whatever of the
fra.srra.nce of the poetry might be lost
in a translation, would be amply com
pensated by a better understanding.
He read for the evening Monna
Vanna, adapted from Maeterlinck's
drama. The story is laid in the Italian
city Fisa in the fifteenth centnrv and
is , the tale of the saving of the city
by a princess' willingness to sacrifice
herself. The lav has been e-iven in
Boston snd Chicago, but otherwise is
practically unknown in this country.
Mr. Hubbard is a thorough going
musician; has been musical critic for
some of the large papers, and has
edited a publication that is a sort of
musical encyclopedia, well known and
much prized among musicians.
The high school music contest is
attracting a great deal of attention
and the high school people especially
are interested in its outcome. The
contest is held three evenings
this week at the Orpheum thea
ter, in connection with the picture
Silas Marner. The contest was put
on at the time the present reel was
staged, as the story is one that is
studied in the high schools, and is a
favorite with nearly all of the stu
dents. Those who entered the contest Mon
day night were: Mss Henrietta Price,
voice; Miss Juliette Hughes, violin;
Miss Margaret Rust, voice; Miss
Thelma Huston, reader; Alvan Battey,
voice, and Miss Inez Horner, piano.
There is a lot of musical talent
among the high school students, and
the contests into which they enter
from time to time have served to
stimulate and encourage their effort.
The judges at last night's performance
were Miss Gladys Gaw, Miss Jennie
Blinn and Miss Pennick. Those who
will serve as judges tonight are Dean
and Mrs. Horace Whitehouse, Miss
Mildred Hazelrigg and Mrs. E. D.
Clithero.
A ten-piece orchestra furnishes the
music for the evening. The contest
will continue tonight and Wednesday
night, and the prizes will be awarded
Wednesday evening.

The recital given at Bethany college
Monday night by Miss Alena Philbin
and Miss Clara Watson was attended
by an audience that filled the college
auditorium to its capacity A member
of the audience who heard the recital
says of it: "Miss Philbin's voice is rich
and full and has a wide range of tone.
the upper notes sounding with a clear,
sweet quality. She uses the overtone
in a skillful manner, coloring the voice
to suit the text. Miss -Philbin sets
high standard of interpretation and
diction: her words are well enunciated
and her stage presence good. Miss
Watson's voice is resonant, with a mel
low quality. Her diction is excellent
and her phrasing finished, showing
careful work in breathing and -forward
placement of tone. The bel canto
style of singing is well demonstrated
in her work. Her climaxes show a
dramatic power in her voice. Miss
Dorothy Keeler, a pupil of Miss Mut
ton, assisted by playing Weber's Con
cerstuck in F minor. Her gifts and
training were readily recognized. She
has composure, brilliant technique and
refined interpretation. After another
year's study she will receive her diplo
ma and her recital will be a matter of
interest to those who have heard her.
Men will not pretend as women will.
Mr. Hubbard, the operalogue man.
says so, and he seems to be right
about it. If a woman goes to look at
stack of wedding . presents she
doesn't inquire what the various ar
ticles are for, but she exclaims over
their beauty, and then when she has
a chance she looks up the doubtful
points and airs her new knowledge at
the first opportunity.
This morning a certain Topeka man
was shown a handsome serving tray.
which had an exquisite embroidered
center, edged with mahogany. "Well,"
said he, what is this for? Why

TODAY'S BEAUTY HINT
It is not necessary to shampoo quite
so frequently if your hair is properly
cleansed each time by use of a really
good shampoo. The easiest to use and
quickest drying shampoo that we can
recommend to our readers may be
prepared very cheaply by dissolving a
teaspoonful of canthrox, obtained
from your druggist, in a cup of hot
water. This rubbed into the scalp
creates a thick lather, soothing and
cooling in its action, as well as bene
ficial to scalp and hair. After rinsing
the scalp is fresh and clean, while the
hair dries quickly and ei-enly, develop
ing a bright luster and a soft fluffiness
that makes it seem very heavy. Advertisement.

Auditorium Bonds. - M

Best Assets. " ' t -:
More arguments favoring the Auali"
torium bonds were presented 6y To""1
peka business men today.
B. B. Eitelman, manager of UK
Kresge store and vice president of thf
Commercial club, said today: "I could,
give many reasons why I am strong
for the Auditorium bond proposition
One is that it will enable us to make
the necessary improvements' by ecor.. J
ing double the capacity of the present
Auditourim to take care of the cmti
ventions, and these conventions are so
big an asset to Topeka that we cannot
afford to lose any of them. Our busi-
ness during the teachers' convention,
last fall exceeded that of fair wee,
Another reason is that the present
Auditorium is admittedly out of re
pair and something must be done. I
think every one will agree that the
Auditorium should be absolutely firer
proof. Furthermore, all such improve- f
ments materially add to the value of.
all property."
Edward Bowman, merchant: "1 ant"

Rev. James P. de Bevers Kaye. dean T-
of Grace cathedral: "We certainly-''
