It is stated that Mr. Sharon, who, in conjunction with Mr. New lands, repremeto the interests of the Rharon estate. intends to oceuy that place as his real dence. Farther east and fronting the same road is the Henderson place, ale the property of the Sharon estate. It is now te center of a good deal of public curiosity, as it is being C pared for the residence of the President and wife. The house is almost hidden from the read by the large trees and shrubbery which abound in the extensive grounds. In the rear there is nothing to uLstruct the vwew, which commands the city and a lovely outlook over the picturesque scenery of that region. On the opposite side of Woodley road are the fine country residences of Mr. Gardiner C. Hub bard sad Mr. Charles J. elL.

Summing up the Napoleonic character Mr. Morris says that "despite his imperfections. errors and misdeeds, Napoleon was one of the greatest of men, and it is vain to deseuibe hin as a kind of Attila in war, a Beegia in government and affairs of state, a Nero in cruelty and licentious wickedness, a reckless, inhuman and selfish tyrant. And as we look back at that career of wonders justice tabes into account the facts which explain much that was devious and wrong, and the good largely exceeds the evil. * 0 * He made France the foremost state of the continent; he believed her supremacy would be enduring. But he contributed to the fall of the old Ger man eampire, which kept Germany in the shackles of the past; be encouraged the dream of an independent Italy; his oppression fused together the Teutonic race, and effaced the divisions which ade it powerless: and all this has tended to surround Frane with great and growing nations, which have become herrivals, and to deprive her of the ascendancy she once COLUMBUS AND ISABELLA-TUE IMMOR TA LIL A Souvenir Cen:ennial Poem.

Deeleieu et the Ilreete af the CalEnbn After May 21 the world's fair grounds will be opened every Sunday. This decision was reached at a meeting of the directors of the Columbian exposition yesterdlay afternoon. President Hliginbotham had call upon Edwin Walker, who is chairman of the committee on legislation, to .ubmit an opinion whether or not the exposition enn be opened on the Seventh lay. After considerable discussion a resolution was proposed to open the gates every Sunday on and after May 21. and to close the main buildings contamning the exhibits. The resolu tion was carried by avote of 22 to 7. Of the seven who voted nay, six were in favor of open ing the fair in every department. The seventh was opposed to opening the gates under any conditions. The depositors in the exposition branch of the Chemical National llank who live outside Chacago received notice yesterday that they would be paid the amounts due them.

THEY WILL BE FLYERS Th Xeuabe of the now Bicyolo Club. EX-CHAMPION HPGHAM IN IT. Recent Rus of the Lea Wheelmeu-Trip of the Washsuen Read Club-George to"n Cycle Club en the Rtad-Cumat aessfp at General laterest. ASKINGTON IS TO have another bi e - ele club and it in be composed of some of the flyers who have heretofore taken aplace in the background so far as cycling was con cerne4. It is to be known as the P. D. Q. ,Cycle Club, and its or ganization will be per fected at the residence of Mr. Harry Higham, No. 476 Vennsylvania avenue northwest. Mr. Higham has again been made an amateur wheel man and, although he has not been on the read much during the recent month, he will prob ably go in training and may surprise some of the new men in the racing teld before the close of the season. A large attendance of wheelmen is requested at the first meeting of the club, which will be held on May 29. CITAL St. CLU. Tomorrow on the road it will be "Capt." Wirt or "Capt." Douglas, for the term of office of Capt. Macdaniel expires tonight, when his successor will be elected. Capt. Macdaniel has filled the office two terms and he declined to be a candidate for re-election, which fact the members who go on the road regret. During the two years he has filled the. office road rid ing has been an interesting feature of the club's enjoyments, and this soring the membeos have shown renewed interest in wheeling, whieh has resulted in discarding many old solid and sash ion-tired wheels and substituting pneumatic tires in their stead, so that the new captain has bright prospects for the most successful season in the history of the club, so far as wheeling is concerned Considerable interest is being manifested in the election, which, as already stated, is to take place this evening. The election is to be held to fill al the offices in the club. Mr. Irving Williamson is the only candidate for the presi dency, anti he is therefore certain of holding the highest office in the gift of the club during the next twelve months. For the vice prees denuy Mr. J. McKL Borden and Mr. F. I. Ste phens are in the race, and the ballots will have to decide the contest. Mr. E. B. Olds as the only one whose name appears as candidate for treasurer, and he will therefore handle the club's funds. Mr. John L. Wirt and Mr. John C. Falck are each wiping to record the doings of the club for twelve months, and they, too, will have to wait until the ballots are cast In order to as certain upon whom the honor falls. For the captaincy Dr. W. D. Wirt and Mr. H. C. Doug lass are in the field. There are also to be elected four members of the executive committee, who are to be selected from the following members: Mr. F. H. Parsons, Mr. W. T. Bingham, Mr. Alexander Britton, Mr. F. W. Flowers, Mr. L. Fogg, Mr. L. L. Harban, Mr. J. E. Lemming and Mr. H. N. Low. The trip for tomorrow will not be determined upon until after eletion tonight. Last Sunday Capt. Macdaniel had a dozen members on the last run under his charge, and the run was one of the most enjoyable single day tripe in the history of the club. Occoquan Falls was the objective point, and the trip over the rough road and through the woods was made without an accident or a break-down. On the outward trip the wheel men went to Alexandria over the Jackson City road and rode through Virginia's ancient ma port town, crossing Hunting creek over the old bridge. Having crossed the bridge the iron horses sped over what is known as the River or Mount Vernon road. A stop was made at Pohick Church, where Gen. Washing ton worshiped, and- after inspecting the ancient aburch edice the wheelmen rode on as far as Lorton. Here they eressed the railroad tracks mad took the road around through the wild iountry to their destination. Through this stretch the wheelmen enjoyed the scenery, but the road in several places was absolutely impassable. and even the experts on the silent steed were forced to dismount and take to the woods. Finally they reached Oc. .oquan Falls, where they stopped at Mr. Ham sell's tavern and enjoyed a first-class Virginia linner. Mr. Hammell's family had been reading Twz BTAn's bicycle column, and they thought that their roads had been slandered, but, when reasoned with by the wheelmen. they acknowl idged that their roads were nothing of which to be proud. and,so far as they were concerned, they were willing to do their share toward im p~roving the roads, which would mean a cor responding improvement to the couutry prop orty. On the return trip the wheelmen followed the -'ilroad path, which they found a little wet in ulces, but not enough to make the trip an un >leasant one, and home was reached before it ras necessary to light lamps on their wheels. Those who enjoyed the run were Capt. Mac laniel and Mecers. Allen Boteler, Ed Olds, Elorace Dodge. Mr. Bliehle. Joseph Leamning, J. EcK. Borden. Dr. Hills, Dr. Wirt, Gray Doug as and Mr. McComb. i? or THE wA5DINGTON nOAD cLUD. The Washington Road Club boys received a searty welcome to "Corvey Lodge" at Four Jorners last Saturday evening and the trip was he most enjoyable one yet given by the club. ZJapt. Jose arranged the trip and perfected the Irrangements therefor more than a week be 'ore the event happened. The first squad left iere Saturday evening, the party consisting of Japt. Jose, Lient. Wooldridge and Messrs. t'hornton. E. F. Brower, Landis, Newman, 31eo. A. Brower. J. M. 8. Bowle, E. 0. Bowie, Wiggins, Espey and Demonet. On their way >ut they met the Arlington whealmen en route o Ashtorf. After a pleasant ride the wheelmen rrived at the "'Lodlge" and Mr. and Mrs. Wright, the keepers, gave them a hcarty wel ,ome and made things as pleasant as possible 'or their guests. The "Lodge" can accom nodate thirty persons, and judging from the welcome received by the Road Club members he place will undoubtedly become a popular esort for wheelmen. There are nine acre. of fruit trees about the "lodge," including cherries, apples, veers. plums and grapes, and to this orchard the wheelmen are to be admitted without any re trictions.. A pleasant night was spent at this new re ort and Sunday morning the second squad of wheelmen reached there. In this party were liesrs. It. S. Bowie, Dyer, Bennett. Gensler,An lermon. Freaich,Clagett.Fisher, Hadger and Ron nille. Then the two parties joined forces and he twenty-two wheelmen aped off in the di rection of Laurel by the way of 8pencerville. lat Laurel they enjoyed dinner at the Herbert Flouse and returned home over the Washington md Blalhigore pike. Tomorrow the club will go to Dtickey's, part of the program being for a sumber of the members to leave here this atfter soon and spend the night at this popular resort in the banks of the Potomac overlooking the pictureeque Great Falls. On the return trip omorrow afternoon an attemot will be made to Lower the record between Cabin John bridge tad Georgetown. oRonoETowN cYcLE cLUD. Twenty-seven members of the Georgetown Cycle Club mounted their wheels last Sunday inorning and started up theConduit ruse, Dickey's being.is place where then had antici pated speniding the day. Capt. Cook had ar rangst the trip, and had made extensive prepa rat'ons for a big crowd and a good time at the p~opular resort on the Virginia side of the river wher e the name George Washington is still reverenced. Tihe largo attendance was highly appreciated by the captain, who was proud of the showiug made by the club on this favorite road. The club left Georgetown promptly at 10 o'clojck, and having plenty of time to spare, a stop was made at Cabin John bridge, where the pleasures of this resort were enjoyed, and then the wheelmen started for their destination. Arriving at the Anglers' Club house, the wheel men learned that the water was high and the current swift, which meant that they would be unable to ferry across the raging waters. The condition of the river changed their lana, and instead of heading for Sandy Land ng the procession of wheels turned to the right, going over the hill In the direction of Carroll's, which is on the Maryland side of the river, facing the canal and the falls. Even then the island could not be reached and the wheelmen were deprived of a view of the falls from the rocky citifs. The mad rush of the waters had partially demolished the bridge and for a boat to attempt to cross the rapids meant certain death. mrtals filed into the large dinin.'room of the hotel, and it is unnecessary to batetht when the table was left there was nothing left upon it exet dishes and such bones as were too large for te wheehen to put out of ight. The party left the falls about 2-JS o'clock and returned toward the city. A short step was made at Cabin John, and when Georgetown was reached the party rode across the Free bridge and spent an hour in the city of the dead at Arlington. returning to Georgetown by way of the old River road. Tomorrow morning the club will go to Ash ton, leaving Georgetown at 9:30 and Florida ivenue and 14th street at 10 o'clock. CAROLL INSTITUTE CYCLEna. Capt. Newman of the Carroll Institute Cyclers has fully recovered from his recent injuries re ceived in the gymnasium more than a week ago, and last Sunday he was on the road with the club. A run for Baltimore had been called, but the captain feared the roads were not in the best condition and so he changed the run from Baltimore to Great Falls. "Bring your bad feelings with you and have them exchanged for a good time." was what the eaptain gave out to the members of the club, but judging from the good time had on the trip the captain has concluded that bad feelings played no part in the affair. There was a good attendance on the run, and tomortow the Baltimore run will be taken. Those who find the round trip too long can re turn home by train. MEScURY WBEELXEN. Capt. Frech of the Mercury Wheelmen baa made the country runs of the club so pleasant that the attendance is on the increase, and In terest in club affairs also shows a decided im provement. List Sunday the club turned out more than a dozen members and took a pleas ant ride. through Soldiers' Home and on the roads in that vicinity. Thursday evening there was also a club run. and tomorrow the club will turn out almost its entire membership for a country outing. NOTES. It is rumored that the Georgetown Cycle Club is soon to receive a challenge for a road race from the Allair Club. In each club there are some members anxious to meet the other club on the road in order that one of the clubs may get a record during its early history. . Ed. Terry of the Arlington Wheelmen has recovered from the effects of his recent inju ries received on the road, and last Sunday he was able to be out with the club. The Crescent Century Wheelmen have dis banded, owing to the fact that most of the members were connected with other clubs, which were given the preference on club runs. Friday. May 28. Mr. Harry Higham will con duct a touring party over the roads between here and Baltimore and will return onthe train. Last Sunday the Arlington Wheelnen went to Ashton with a large party. Some of the local wheelmen will attend the Itroadway cycle carnival in Baltimore next Wednesday. The wheelmen of the monumental city are making extensive preparations for the event. A number of handsome prizes have been offered for the clubs making the best display in line. wEEILMEN AND SPRING CHICKEN. Spring chicken is what every wheelman ex pects to And on the dinner table at the other end of the many trips that are now being made in the country. and if he doesn't find it he is really disappointed. although the disappoint ment does not furnish suficient grounds for a complete lose of appetite. Then, too, the ab sence of fowl on the tables gives room for an amusing chat at the expense of those who are known to be especially fond of something good to satisfy the inner man, and plenty of it as well. Seldom does it happen that a club ca tain, writing in advance for dinner, falls mention the chicken in some way, even if it is only in a manner to be regarded as a joke, but he is sure to leave some ground upon whieb the country hostelry will at least suspect what is wanted. And as a rule the clubmen get what they want, and for that reason it is an argu ment in favor of country riders being members of a club. But it remained for one of the clubmen to break the chicken record: in fact, he broke the fowl itself. He got the chicken, however, and in a manner that brought forth denunciation on one hand and the use of a big "I" on the other. Along the road the wheelman was speeding wholly unconscious of anything except the beauties of nature, and not such beauties that walk on two legs, when suddenly he hear4 a flutter, a screeching noise and then a scramble: All in a heap on the road, with his face in the dust, the wheelman found himself, and, risi high enough to rest on his elbow, he looke around and there discovered the mangled corpse of a last year's hen. The blood and feathers had painted and decorated his wheel In a manner that no one except a passerby en joyed. Spending a few minates getting fragments of the dead fowl and feathers from his wheel, the wheelman went forth, thinking he had been un noticed by any person except the man in the wagon, but such was not the case,for the iring dower* blossoming on the hillside were betag p lucked by two other wheelmen, who were on ying an evening's outing, and now. when the clubmen sit down at a country tavern, the ill fated man always gets first pick of the chicken.

Second Day's Enunning of thse Hunt and Pony Races at Denning. The second day's running of the hunt and pony races at the Benning track yesterday was witnessed by a smaller crowd than on the open ing day, although there was quite a good at tendance. Six regular event. and a match race of three furlongs, between Freddie Gebhard's Rosarinm and the Monmouth County Hunt titable's The Crow, were run. The racing was rather tame and uninteresting, the last race of the day, a steeplechase over the full course, be ing finished by but one horse, Gerrina. The winners were Bridget (Mr. Savage), even money; Neptune (Mr. Maddux), 7 to 6; Capt. Manning (Mr. Hoey). 7 to 10; Rosarium (Mr. Hosy), 3 to 6; Independence Day (Mr. Mad dux), 2 to 1; Oakwood (Mr. W. Hayes), 1 to 4, and Q@yrpsaMr. W. Hayes), 1 to 8. The meeting will conclude today wiih a card of six races, two of them being steeplechases of four miles each. Monday afternoon a similar meeting will be commenced at the Ivy City track under the auspices of the Chevy Chlase Club. This meet ing will continue two days. Monday and Tues day, and in addition to the horses engaged at the Banning track there will be other entries. The Marine Baud will be in attendance, and every effort will be made to make the meeting the moat successful one of the kind ever hcld here. The first race will be called at 8 o'clock. and the B. and 0. railroad will run special trains to the track, returning immediatey aftr the last race. Swindling the Strikers.

A man who has never done a stroke of mason work claims that he has made *30 and his car fare out of the strikers. He has been in the city twice and says he was paid a good sum te LOST BY A BAD THROW. Washington Won a Game and Threw It Away. FOUR THOUSAND SAW IT. Vesterday's Contest Was a Cas of "Now Yo Have It, and Now Yea Haven't" Other Games In Other CitIes-Notse of the Game. The luckiest thing about yesterday's game was Mulvey's bid throw, which lost the gamze to Baltimore. Although twenty-four hours have elapsed since the contest the cranks-or "3nthustaaste"-will all hift their hands at this and gasp: "Wha-wha-what's that? Oh, Whatteher saying?" Nevertheless, it was a lucky thing. From time immemorial Joe has been indulg ing in the custom of making one particularly ba:l throw each season. No one knows when it is coming. It is just as likely to be in the ninth with two out and the bases full of the enemy's men, as in the first with no one on the bags. It comes when least expected, like the thief in the night. And when it dose appear it is so "yellow" that it casts a shadow on the sun. It takes the breath away from the bleachers, Harry Wright stops pulling his whiskers and the red-capped boys for the moment forget to call "peanuts and cigars." No yell goes up; no one has wind enough in his lungs nor en ergy In his will to raise a cry. A silent sad ne settles a foot deep on the whole gather ing. Now, as Harry Wright, the genial manager of the Phllies, knows, and as every well-posted b ase ball enthusiast should remember, Mulvey enacts this tragedy once a year. Last year when he did it Harry Wrght's feelings were so wrought upon that "Mul" was laid on the shelf, whereat "Mul" was so east down in spirit that he refused Washi ton's ofer to come here, not deeming him good enough for us. That's where genial Harry made a big mistake. He should have kept Mulvey on third. The agony was past. ihe deed had been done. Thank fortune that it was over with. It is reflections such as these as cause re joicing for that terable throw of yesterday. We all know that it has been made and will not have to live in dread of it for the rest of the season. As the "sports" say, the game is young yet, and a victory or two now doesn't make much difference. Better to have that throw now than along in September, when it may de cide our position in the championship race. If any one expects "Mul" to repeatsuch a play he simply shows his base ball ignorance. Yesterday was ladies' day, and more ladies were present than on any previous occasion this year. The total attendance was 3,810. Only one day-last Monday-was it lr. It was then 4,012. The Senators, with their innate gallantry, have made a point of winning on la dies' day. Just to show their fair guests how easy it was to win the visitors were allowed to gain a slight lead-not much, but just enough to let them think they could win. Then the local boys, about the seventh or the eighth inning, were to whack out a few singles and doubled, and were to take the game from betore the astonished eyes of the Baiti moreans. And every one was to enjoy a merry laugh and. go home with a good appetite to a late dinner. It was Capt. O'Rourkeas little joke, and it worked to a charm-up to the de nouiement; there it slipped a cog. The visitors were consequently allowed to acquire a few scores, and their sympathizers on the bleachers were having a carnival Ho*w they did enjoy themselves. The score was 3 to 1 in their favor. In the eighth Capt. O'Bourke thought best to spring his little joke. Ab cordingly directions were given out to hit. Larkin, Farrell and Radford hit safely, and, with Sullivan's fy to the outdeld, produced two runs, putting the home team ahead. Singles qy O'liourke, Wise and Larkin, with Farrell's W to left, gave two more in the ninth, making i score 6 to 8. Then everybody saw the joke and laughed--Ho, ho, ho! what a merry man this captain of ours is!" but in the terse and elegant phraseology of a Baltimore contempo rary: "After a spirited uphill fight the Orioles de feated the 1 askingtons in the last inning. The Baltimore. won the game by nerve and persis tency and played ball as it should be played, never despairing of victory until the last ray of hope is obliterated." That's the way it seemed to the visitors. To the - Washington people it looked as though Mulvey tas taking pity on the visitors and gave taem the Same out of charity for two being out it was an easy matter to throw Kelley out at first, instead of sending the ball ten feet over Larkin's head. But it all depends on the point of view whether a victory is won by nerve and persistency or lest by inexcusable blundering. Score: wasHINoToN. ALTIMOan. a. . . a. . L. O. A. Z.

Sam Wise, Paul Radford and' Jim O'Rourke were discarded by Boston 10 years ago as no gfood, yet these three men are putting up a strong game today for Washington. The Erie club of the Eastern League has signed Pitcher John Healy, the Egyptian. This renders the .engagement of Hank O'Day unnecessary. How ridiculous to say that the high fly that O'Rourke muf'ed yesterday was an easy one. That kind of a fly as the hardest kind of catch. More of that kind are muffed than any kind. When Mulvey made that throw probably every one of the 3,810 present would have con sented to his release, so unstable is the pinnacle of base ball popularity. As for Mulvey, he felt worse than any one else. Just watch Mulvey's playing on the doming trip. In base ball parlance he will "eat" all balls coming his way. The Philadelphia Press heads the account of the game: "One of Mulvey's old time throws." That's right, neighbor; but they don't come often. Manager Bernie says: "We are meeting with reverses, but Louisville will be in the race be fore the season is very old. Our p itching de partment is not what we expected, and In tend to have a shaking up. I gave some time degree dh I vestme to my that they equal any other." cLosmA3 St.a 3W SIX C0333Z5 ASS oSo~o Town. The large crowd, which was mostly com posed ot collegiea. that was present at the base bell game at Capitol Park yesterday after noon between Cornell and Georgetown Univer sities, was treated to a fine exhibition of ball playing. The visitors finally carried off the Sonors by a score of 4 to 2, but is was only after a great game they did so. The pitchers. Priest and Cat mody, were in fine form, the first being touched for onltyibree hite and striking out Ave men, while Carmody held the Cornellisn down to four hits and struck out eight men. The local boye were deprived of the services of Mike Mahoney, one of their best men, which necessitated placing Garvey on Arst and putting Bahen in the feld. The game was fall of pretty plays. Each side was credited with five errors. hut the boys from Ithaca were more fortunate then their opponents, as their errors were not costly, while those of the latter were. Georgetown took the lead in the first inning, scoring two runs to their opponents' one. Thus the score stood until the sixth, when Cornell got a runner acroes the plate and tied. In the eighth they get two more, and there the game stood at the close. Written for The Ewnina Near. A VOLUNTEER OEGANIST. Her Experience In Playig In a Ceuntry Chure" in Summer. One rainy evening we were sitting around the Ire talking-Kate, Nellie and L Kate mid she "was sick and tired of giving music lessons. and wished she had been edu cated for a cook; cooking was a much more in dependent and luerative profession than teaching." I remembered the effee and omelet Eate had prepared for supper one Sunday evening They were not of the style to give one much faith in her oulnary abilities, but I had any amount of oondene in her maical talents, so I inquired "why she didn't get a position as organist in some church," and was greeted by peels of laughter from the Iters. After awhile, Kate's amerrimet having enb sided, she condescended to explain its ease. You remsember, she said, that a few years ago we went to the mountains of Virginia for the month of July; the same summer you teck that trip to Honolulu, you know. In the let adjoining our boarding place stood a little gray stone church, built lreythibug the untiring efforts of our lad and his wife, who, of course felt a strong in terest and quasi-proprietorship in the maelf edifice. The Sunday after our arrival was a typical July day. I would most cheerfuUy have fore gone the morning service, but mamma, eam vinced that my heathenism was growing apace, insisted that chutoh-going was the proper order of the day. So I went. One thing during the service especially struok me (I was too hot to be impressed by anyting else), and that was that in addition to his usua duties it was hard lines for an unsongful clergy man to have to start the hymns n when a nice little melodeon was on hand. A after church, learning that the o was at the sa shore for a few weeks and that that was the cause of the uncertain quantity (and quality) of the music. I rashly ogered my services to manipulate the instrument (of torture, I was about to say) the following Sunday. They (my services) were quite gleefully so cepted. and during the week the key of the church was intrusted to me, that I might be come acquainted with the melodeon. Up to that time mny dealings with musical in struments had limted themselves to pianos, but this being a smaller afhir I anticipated but little resistance from it and was quite to And how hard it was to keep mybmnin fingers and feet all "on the mor." At intervals I did not quite aeeemplish this, and the conuent expiring squeaks of that melodeon male me siver and Nei predict dire catastrophes for the coming Sunday. Nothing that she pr ophsed, however, at al approached the real th in harrowinegas. Friday even the choir met with ma to practice. = to instruction from them I had learned a three-sharp venite, whish we all felt to be very fin. The leader, however, was kept at home by a threatened quinmy (on Sunday I was --- to wish it had really eoAne instead iJuist threatening to). and without bar the girs ware afraid to attempt that particular venate, so we rehearsed another in its stead, worked a benedictas and some hymns quite , and when we dispersed I had the m feeling that say rash er of help would tarn out better than for the last few days I had thought pom.b, and went home much re lieved. bunday was as a warm day as aight have been expected. but best seldom kept the people in that vicinity from attending to their religious duties, so the litle church was as weli filled as usual. Owing to the inexperience of the melodeen let" no processional, recessional or ofertery were to be attempted. so the veits was the first thing in my progra, and when its time came I began quite boldly, cheered by that the leader's sore throat being bet b e , though late was Ceming up the arch aisle to take her acoustemed piae. Just as she joined as she started the anthm. the choir followed her lead, and-the most frightful discords ensued. The %ones of that melodeon were like age ited groans and shriek, of a lost sol and I, wirnwing to go backward -r foa orin any 'don to get "in" with the singers, felt like one myself. Of course, you know what had hped; I didn't 'til we were neerly though. Tileader had begun that three-hapvenits we had de cided not to have, and I was playing the one we had rehearsed, in three fiats, Ithink It was. My family locked ptyingly at ame. Thsy were muck mortified (ou needn't attempt to deny It. Nellie, for you were), and as for mee. if the earth had lopened to receiv, me I aheuld have felt thankful. After that brillint opening you can imagine how gleefully I awaited my next encounter with the instrument, The rest of the music, however, went very well, and as the choir most courteously and truthfully told what had be fallen that first anthem I did not have the obloquy of such a mess to endure, and when the service was a thing of the past mny spirits revived. By the next Sunday it was decided tht an offertory would enhance the beenty of the services, and when the eheir wanted a "...loa.." solo" I selected-you know that eleventh No turne of Chopin's, don't you? the one with the beautiful cathedraly chords? Well, I took a small, a very samall portion of that and worked it up. When I was jast in the middle of it and simply could not expedte matters, theuse, or whatever you calthe plate handers, amanhd their work and cheerfully ambled up the aile to retore the plates to the clrya. For at least two minutes I plyed ahaslew, solemn chords, that I lonedto tern into a jig, delay ing the service, and expiating, Ilam sure, by my anguish of mind. many sins patand to come: then the piefle and the oreacme to an end. The next Sunday, an offertory being desired, I took another scrap ot another nocturne, a shorter scrap, and I played it faster, mash faster. In my desire notto be left bhindlIbagna it without giving the elergyaman time to may "Let your light so shine before amen," or anything else, as he handed the plates to the ushers, who had, I am sure, been warned to go elow; and I raced through it. When I bad triumphantly thumped my last chord, I looked up-"the ushers, where were they?" About halway through their work; and to fill the awful pause that ensued before they were entirely through it, the minister read not only "Let your light so shine." butt, I shoqld thinst, a whole chapter bese. The~ next Sunday we were homne; and the ex porlence I had them with church msie, mny friend, has made me resolve to eschew it in future.
