WEDNESDAY CLUB IN A GENERAL CONCERT Christmas Numbers Comprise Pro gram ; Appreciation of Working Musicale The Wednesday Club will give one of its attractive general concerts on Thursday evening, December 17, in Fahneatock Hall, at 8.15 o'clock. The program will be given by the club members and will consist of selec tions appropriate to the Christmas season. Each member may bring a guest to the concert. This is an innovation, as heretofore only to the closing concert of the season were guests invited. Fino Working Musicale The Wednesday Club never had a more out-of-the-ordinary and interest ing program than the one given at its recent working musicale. The subject for the morning was "Music of the North American Indian" and its in fluence, upon American composers. The aboriginal songs in their native simplicity have been transcribed by Natalie Curtis, Cadman and Troyer, with harmonized piano accompani ments that furnish the necessary back ground of sound, at times imttating the roll of the drums, the plaintive notes of the lover's flute, the piercing call of the eagle-bone whistle and the rattle used by the "medicine man." The Indian's whole life is epitomized in his songs and dances. Work, play and ceremony, each has Its own vocal and instrumental expression. Loomis in his "Lyrics of the Red Men" has woven Into one of these compositions for the piano the melody which is sung when the calumet, the peace pipe, is dedicated, the pipe which, when offered and smoked, seals the bond of friendship. In another Is heard the prayer to Wakonda, the thunder god. Then there is the tune which is sung in derision of the chat tering squaw. Its inharmonious con secutive fourths and fifths and its jumble of melodies sung by different voices regardless of time and unison of pitch typifies vividly the garrulous woman. The Tyrolese yodel has a mate in the motion songs of the Indian maiden as she grinds the corn for her tribe. The papooses of the Zuni tribe are sung to sleep with the tenderest lul laby. while in marked contrast Is the tragic music of the "Ghost Dance." This has been arranged for violin by- Carlos Troyer and it portrays in mu sical color the crouching dance of the naked painted savage, round and in and out among the flaming bonfires, while he endeavors to call the spirit of his beloved back to earth to join him in this commemorative fire dance. The day has its "Sunrise Call." when every man. woman and child of a Pueblo village hastens to a nearby plateau and with uplifted hands greets and thanks the life-giving Mother. The great warriors' deeds are re membered in song and story and the greatest of them all has been immor talized by Arthur Farwell in "Ichl busshi." Ichibusshi, he who was slow to answer the war drum, but whose prowess ln battle was talked of by children of the fourth and fifth gen eration. No program could be complete with out Cadman's exquisite Indian .songs; the sons of the captive maid homesick for 'the land of the sky-blue water;" "Far Off I Hear a Lover's Flute;" "The White Dawn is Stealing," and "The Moon Drops Low," that noble sorrow for the passing of the red man's glory.

MANY SEEKING CHARITY By Associated Press Chicago, Deo. 14.—Charitable or jpSb What the Shops Are Showing Yj^\ Have you ever noticed how somber and dull some rooms are when the color scheme is brown, while others, also done in brown tones, are so de lightful? Every color has three quali ties, value, hue and intensity, and the right proportioning of these qualities makes the success or failure of any decorative scheme. The ordinary buyer of wall paper knows very little about the proportions which must be esti mated in coloring, but if the paper is selected from the splendid assortment shown at the A. B. Tack Wall Paper Shop, 1210 North Third street, one may be sure that color values will be proportioned with absolute accurate ness. A SURPRISE BASKET A surprise basket is a clever gift suggestion offered at the Studebaker Grocery Store. State and Second streets, for just SI.OO. The basket is one of the exquisite Bellefonte baskets, in rich green tones, daintily tied with Christmas ribbons, and topped with a spray of scarlet berries. Inside the basket is—ah. but that's the surprise! However, it is no violation of con fidence to say that the treat inside is sure to delight the Invalid. The Stude baker Store is making a special offer ing of Christmas goodies, such as line preserves, fruits, nuts, raisins, plum puddings, mince meat and all the ma terials for making Christmas cakes. A DISTINCTIVE SHOE Shoes of suede, of soft leather, or patent leather and of cloth may be had In many excellent models, but the well dressed women who likes the touch of distinction in everything she wears will find that special attraction in a shoe of satin de luine. offered nt the Walk Over Boot Shop, 22fi Market street. It is dainty in its graceful lines, dig nified in its unobtrusive black, elegant in Its excellent workmanship and smart from the topmost button to the sole of its high Cuban heel. It may most appropriately be worn for either dress or street wear, with tailored or evening costumes, and the price of this model is $6.00. (iIITS THAT SUIT It Is hard to put a bit of real per sonality into a 2 5-cent gift, but the Christmas shopper who stops in at the Central Book Store, 329 Market street, will find in this attractive assortment something which seems to be "just the thing" for each Individual. A book of toaßts for the friend who enjoys so ciety, a book of poems for the dream er, a calendar of menus for the house wife, a nursery rhyme for the little tot, a calendar of Bible verses for the ganizations were swamped here to-day with appeals for aid as a result of a cold wave which swept the Great Lakes region last night.

A DAINTY GUT Being tied to a woman's apron strings would be less of a disgrace and more of a pleasure if the apron strings belonged to one of the dainty little affairs of white lawn and lace shown at the Woman's Exchange, Third street at Herr. So delightful and at tractive arc the styles and so line the materials that these aprons make most charming gifts and the prices range from 25 cents to $1.25. Some are quaintly cut in fanciful designs, some very practical in size and shape, but all yield to the truly feminine yearning for prettiness, and if it is only a fetch ing little bow of ribbon, pink, or blue, in the corner, there is some touch that makes it appeal to the giver of dainty gifts. LAMPUOHT In the soft glow of a lamp the spirit of home seems to find its source, and for Christmas a well-chosen lamp is | valued gift. The Harrisburg Electric" i Supply Company, 24 South Second street, are making a special Christmas display of both gas and electric lamroi at most reasonable prices.

For Invalids motorists, nurses or travelers they make an ideal gift, while thore is hardly anyone from school boy or girl to the grandmother who would not find one of these a most acceptable gift The Gorgas Dfug Store. 10 North Third street, has a complete line of thermos bottles and carafes and the prices are very mod erate.
