£. Baxter Perry.
) who love music enjoyed a treat on
iday evening at the V. M. C. A. Au
n, when Mr. E. Baxter Perry ap
and gave one of those splendid reci
tals to which Staunton audiences have
listened on several previous occasions.
There is a charm about the person, an intel
ligence in all lie says and does that is abso
lutely facinatiug, and no one can hear liim
without being instructed and delighted.
Music which may be styled melted poetry,
when understood lias charms which not
only sooth the savage breast, but elevate
the more civilized soul, and music rendered
by this remarkable man imparts fresh
charms to every listener. As we have stated
Mr. i'trry is not a stranger here, and some
of the numbers rendered have'on several
occasions been heard, but each rendition has
added charms.
The lecture with which he prefaces each
matter, *c in keeping with the nvusio,
chaste, sonorous, classical, and admirably
prepares his audience for what they are to
hear. He tells of the inspiration under
which the number was composed, the sur
roundings, Influences, motif oi the compos
er, which enables one to follow and com
prehend the detail of the composition with
raptuous delight. The program of tho even
ing included selections from Beethoven,
Chopin. Wagner, Liszt, and two works by
himself. Mr. Perry is totally blind, but
be ie so highly gifted, both intellectually
and musically, so refined aud cultured, that
lie at once elicits the sympathy and admi
ration of his audience. His technique is
Simply wonderful, and his mastery of the
piano forte a revelation to those who have
never seen him.
A large aud appreciative audience greeted

my invited guests and visiting Catholic
Societies from neighboring towns, assem
bled last Sunday morning at half past ten
o'clock, in St. Francis Church to witness the
dedicatory ceremonies of that handsome
This church occupies the site of the old
one—which was removed to make room for
it—but covers a much larger area, being
much more spacious in all its appointments.
The style of architecture is English Gothic,
the material of the foundation beiug native
limestone, that of the superstructure, ser
pentine stone rock from Chester county,
Pennsylvania, the exquisite greenish color
of this latter stone, lending much beauty to
the style of masonry which is in broken
range courses, and blending harmoniously
with the Indiana limestone which forms the
trimmings—the whole presenting, with its
graceful spires and handsome main eutrance
ornamented with artistically carved stone
arches, an architectural effect of surpassing
loveliness. The elegant stained glass win
dow, which occupies the circular space above
this main entrance, was executed iv Munich
at a cast of $800, and is a memorial of Mr.
John Geary. The bell, which is the gift of
the Catholic Hibernian Benefioial Society,
cost ?400, and is the largest in the city. On
last Sunday it rang for the first time in the
histoiy of Staunton, the Angelus, and thence
forth it will ring three times every day. at
six o'clock in the morning, at noon and at
six in the evening, calling the faithful to
prayer. This beautiful custom, followed
in all Catholic countries, can not but ap
peal to devout souls of all creeds, since its
object is to recall the minds of the faithful
from their daily concerns and inspire a
silent invocation for aid against dangers or
temptations, or for the better performance
of duty. This touching idea has its expres
sion in one or the most celebrated paintings
of the last half century. The Angelus of
Millet. The weary peasants pausing for a
moment from their toil to offer up a silent
prayer as the tones of the Angelus bell float
to them across the fields.
The interior of St. Francis is quite in keep
ing with the interior, the same Gothic de
sign being observed in the scheme of archi
tecture, the unsupported arches, with their
richly carved capitals depending from the
celling of the nave, producing a most grace-

Mr. Editor.—We are anxious to have
a definition of Honest Flection from a
republican standpoint. We wish to
frame it for the benefit of our grand
children in the years to come. Will
you be kind enough to ask Hon. Jake
Yost to send it to us, and at the same
time to let us know how much he pays
for teachers, to teach his constituents
the way to read "J» Yost," and wheth
er he expects his strange pupils, who
may run in on the last day of registra
tion, to be taught between that and
election day to read that wonderful
name? Now if the gentleman will
allow us we would like to make a aug
gestion. If we had his hankering for
Congress we would put a handle or
two to each end of our name and at
the next election have it printed
"Right Honorable Honest Jacob Yost,
Esq." Then furnish each voter with a
