tuoso, fresh-crowned with European
laurels. A few years hence Chatham
will hall from abroad a genius of her
own. Sam Sours, a slender, delicate
faced lad of sixteen, a graduate in
music of Cratham Institute, who has
delighted all who heard him by his
wonderful playing. John Powell was
one of these and was .-. , v enthusiastic
over him, declaring that ho gave won?
derful promise. He will go to Vienna

Mr. Sours was the chief attraction at
a beautiful concert given at llocky

in B i'lat Minor." Krimi'? "Melodie and
Valse and Schumanns "Concerto In A

playing second piano, He also gave a
number of charming encores.
His playing is soulful, artistic, bril?
liant; his touch delicate and sweet or
masterful and soul-stirring, as his nne
sense of interpretation dictates. He
held the rapt attention of his audience
and left them wildly enthusiastic.
Mr. Sours also played exquisitely the
accompaniments of his teacher, Miss
Anna C. Titus, of New York, who con?
tributed several numbers to the pro- I
gram. Her voice is sweet and rltih and
beautifully trained, and she sings with |
much .hum. Her numbers were "The
Loreley,'* by Liszt: "To a Messenger,*'
by Da Forge, and. Rogers's "Love Hnn
Wings," besides several equally fine
Another singer who rendered several
beautiful numbers and won much ap?
plause was Miss Alice Peters, an attrac?

cis Goodman, of Roanoke.
Another feature of the program which
was much enjoyed was tho violin solos
of Mr. Goodman, who played u lot of
old favorites?Dvoraks "Humorfsque,"
j Schumann's "Traumarel" and Sthu
I bens "Serenade"?and responded to
numerous encores. His playing is
characterized by great sweetness and
dcilcay, and the piano, under the skilled
fingers of his aocompanlst, Mrs. Dexter
Webster Meadows, of Roanoke. was in
perfect accord with his bow. Mr. Good?
man, who is employed In the Norfolk
and Western Railway offices in Roa?
noke. is a member of the Academy of
Music orchestra and first violin In the
