February House Beautiful.''.'..
Every season gives us some delightful
novelties in sweet peas, most of -which
originate with Henry Eckford.of England.
Last year I grew the varieties newly in
troduced, and found several of them de
cided acquisitions.. As a rule, one now'
need have no trouble in getting free-flow
ering sweet peas of large size, in any
color, for the poorer varieties have been
mostly weeded4out by the seed growers.
Among the new varieties, Miss Wi'.lmott
is excellent, its standards being orange
pink, delicately touched with "rose, and
the wings a trifle lighter. Mrs. Fitzgerald
is a soft cream, flushed with rose, while
the variety called Duchess of Westminster
is of a delicate apricot hue. The Countess
of Lathorn is one of the most attractive
sorts, of a delightful pink color.
Let me urge againas I have so often
said before in these pagesplant named
varieties of sweet peas, and label each
variety so that your discriminating knowl
edge may increase from year to year, and
at the same time your appreciation of
these most charming flowers will surely
become deeper and more lasting
The early, planter catches the best sweet
peas. As Mr. Hutchins says, when you
see the first bluebird, it is time to" be
thinking of getting the sweet peas into
the ground. Select a new place for them
each year, if possible, and give them an
opportunity to get a good root-growth dur
ing the long, cool weeks of early spring.

THE HAMB0UB.G HECITAL
If one is to judge by the concert given
in Plymouth church last Saturday evening.
Mark Hambourg has,not yet reached the
high tide of music capabilities, except,
possibly as to his technique. That mys
terious thing called temperament, without
which it is said no'musician can reach the
full measure of success, seemed curiously
lacking, especially in the Chopin numbers.
The concert attracted a great many
music, lovers to Plymouth, and the audi
eiice was a large arid.-representative-one.!
It seemed, however, to be somewhat cap-|
tipus,- and." not iftelhated to give, mi&e in!
the way of applause Nand commendation I
than was demanded by the player. That j
compelling, imperious force was not pres-j
ent, especially in thegftrst part of the pro
gram, and the( ^applaiuse, while frequent/, |
was fitful and not' heajly and spontaneous.
The program itself was a model, al
though if .was conspicuous for the absences
of thte iijikjt masters' compositions, such as
Bach and BeethovfehV' Hambourg's most
conspicuous failure was in the Chopin
Nocturnes,]-'-the bektffiful' one in G major
being a part'of the'program, and the one
in-F. sharp major, [tbjg* "Nocturne with the
.Jgishsg be^Jpiayed as an encore to tbi
SR^rbiffsteias vgife in A'fiat frorrt-'^L.e'^al^
The 'former wAs played with as little sen
timent as though it was a call to a farm- j
house dinner at 12'o'clock noon. The}
tempo' was-taken at a pace which could
not but..kill the sentiment, and with, that
ho effort apparently was made to play it as
it might have been flayed, by Zeisler or
Gabrilowitsch for instance. What is true
of this Nocturne in G major is true in a
greater or less degree of "other numbers
on the program appealing particularly to
On the other harlia, Hambourg's tech^
nique was prodigious.. He is inclined to
"show off'', that fact, by talcing his tempos
"at a furious^rate and accomplishing them
.under] the fh creased- difficulties as easily
and with less apparent effort than other
pianists. The Leschetizky number, "La
Source." was a marvel of digital dexter
ity. The composer has taken a charming
melody for. the right hand, which is writ
ten, in measured but.-rapid time, each note
of that melody beisjg played with a trill
or turn, and all without the abatement of
an iota of the tempo. The same facility
of execution was noticeable In two of the
Chopin "Prehides," and in the Chopin
"Berceuse," where for the first time in
the course of the evening, the player made
his piano sing, and where a very perfec
tion of tonal quality was secured.
The Schumann "Fantasia in C Minor"
was an interesting number to musicians,
because seldom heard here, but it did not
appeal to "the audience with unusual pow
er. Its third movement, it is interesting
to note, opens witli a hint of that com
poser's famous "Serenade." The Rubin
stein waltzwas played with power and fine
effect, and won the heartiest encore of
the evening. The Liszt paraphrase of the
Mendelssohn "Wedding March" was the
real "concert-stueck" of the program, and
the exhibition of technique which it
brought was simply marvelous in its per
fection. It was encored, and Hambourg
played another number before the audi
ence would depart. ,,-
Hambourg is not yet the musician of the
soul. It is doubtful whether he ever will
be. He is as near perfect as may be
within his limitations, but those limita
tions are obvious. While his program was
perhaps much more severe than that of
Gabrilowitsch. yet he failed to satisfy his
audience as did his predecessor. Without
doubt Hambourg is a fine pianist, his tech
nique is superb but the essential, all
compelling power to touclr the hearts of
his listeners is Jacking. Will the addition
of years of experience bring it to him? I
doubt it. , Howard. Boardman. -
