Died Prom His Injuries
Sidney Barnett, the youth who was so
badly injured by a falling pulley at a der
rick near the Ninth-street bridge the other
night, died yesterday at the Sisters' hos
pital from peritonitis, which ensued from
the terrible bruise he received in his stom

taken the day previous from the receiving
hospital to where he could have every at

Campbell will hold an inquest this morn
ing upon the unfortunate lad's remains.

Zuber Taken Home.
Adolf Zuber, who was badly slashed with
a knife Friday evening by a discharged
employe, William Nolan, was yesterday
removed from the receiving hospital to his
home at 1543 West Eighth street. It is
expected that he will soon recover from
his wounds, which being inflicted with so
small a knife, are superficial, except the
one gash which penetrated the walls of the
abdomen. He, however, had a most nar
row escape from death; a fraction of an
inch deeper and the in testines would have
been cut, making a fatal wound.

vice. The even-song will be characteristic
of the highest type of Anglican church
music, the old school being represented by

and Father, and the new school by Stain
er's Daughter of Jairus and the canticles
by Dr. Martin's splendid setting of the

Mr. Frederick Stevenson, the choirmas
ter of St. John's Episcopal church, has pre
pared some very fine music for today's
services. Much of it is Mr. Stevenson's
own composition, and will be heard at St,
John's for the first time. The anthem in
the morning will be Gadsby's Lol the Win
ter Is Past. Sullivan's beautiful hymns
will also be a feature of the morning serv
ice. The offertory anthem at evening will

11 is good news that the promising young
violinist, K. J. Ferrer is to give another
concert before he leaves for Brussels to re
new his studies with Ysaye. Mr. Ferrer,
who is a native of California, has, far the
last Aye years and a half enjoyed the tu
telage of the best violinists iv Europe, and
is, today, regarded by Ysaye as one of his
star pupils. Mr. Ferrer's second concert
will be given at the Blanchard- Fitzgerald
music hall, next Thursday evening, when
lie will play Wieniawski's Legende, Zar
zycki's mazourka, and with Mias Blanche
lingers, Grieg's sonata, op. 8. Mrs. Adele
Wightman will give a couple of delightful
guitar solos, and Mrs. Tolhurst will be the
vocalist of the evening. A distinctly at
tractive program has been arranged, and
no music lover can afford to miss hearing
the young violinist, who, undoubtedly, will
make a name for himself.
Miss Anna Fuller, the talented and ac
complished soprano, is to be heard in con
cert at the Los Angeles theater on Monday
evening, the tilth instant, During llie
last six years Miss Fuller has devoted her
self to the highest development of her line
voice with the enlightened zeal of a true
lover of music. A native of Maryland, her
rich voice early attracted attention; for
several years she was first soprano at St.
Stephen's church, Philadelphia, which po
sition she resigned to go to Italy to study
under Vannucini at Florence. Subse
quently Kandegger of London, Mine. Al
lot of Berlin, where Miss Fuller made a
very successful debut before the Berlin
Philharmonic society, Mme. de la Grange
of Paris and Toeraleff of Leipßic, under
took the cultivation of her powers. During
last summer and fall Miss Fuller sang in
a series of grand concerts in London with
great success and in other musical centers
of both England and Germany won the
highest praise from the critics. The Mv -
sical Courier said of Miss Fuller last No
vember: "She is must thoroughly
equipped for the career she has chosen
and her progress will be watched with in
terest." While an ardent student of Wag
ner and gifted with a sufficiently grand
voice to interpret the Meister's works,
Miss Fuller can sing a simple ballad or a
plantation melody very charmingly, and
her concert, when no doubt she will give
proofs of her versatility, will be a distinct
musical event.

remarkable interest. The song-writers
who chance to catch or reflect the notes of
the (lay are too often the victims of cir
cumstances, and it is as often as not that
they hit on a popular song simply by
the merest accident. It would be difficult
to find any one better versed on this sub
ject than Charley B. Ward, who, besides
being the author of The Bowery Boy and
The Band Played On, is a specialist in
this sort of song. "Charley Graham." he
said the other day. "sold Two Little Girls
in Blue for a $10 hill, and the publishers
made over $35,000 out of it. Daisy Hell
was written by an Englishman while
stopping in New York. The Urin that ac
cepted the song paid his passage luck to
England. The song suddenly sprung into
extraordinary popularity there at the time
of a royal marriage and subsequently waß
reproduced in this country with such great
success that the publishers cleared $30,000
out of it. The composer had luckily pro
tected his interests, and raked iv $11,000
in royalties. The largest royalty ever paid
yet has been on Sweet Marie. Raymond
Moore was on his way to San Francisco
with Thatcher's minstrels to appear in
Africa. One afternoon he was a heavy loser
in a game of poker. Cy. Wurman's
lines on Sweet Marie were about
all he had left in his pocket. He sought
consolation from them in the rear of the
car. A melody came to him, he summon
ed the leader of the orchestra, and in an
hour the music of the beautiful ballad was
accomplished. It is curious how a song
sometimes jumps into popular favor. Joe
Flynn as one of a song nnd dance team
had been singing Down Went McGinty for
a year and a lit If without any particular
notice. He had offered it in vain to pub
lishers in New York, Philadalphia, and
Boston. At last an obscure publisher in
Brooklyn undertook to publish it. Joe
went off on tour and returned in a year to
And in place of the insignificant home of
the publisher a fine big block. The pub
lisher had made a fortune out of it. Ta
ra-ra-ra Boom-do-ay was an adaptation of
a negro song, Ting-a-ling, etc. Henry J.
Saynrs heard it one night in a dive and
licked it into shape. Lottie Collins' hus
band happened to be the advai cc agent of
tbe company with which Savers was travel
ing. Lottie Collins got hold of the song,
produced it in England as her own and
even appropriated royalties on it. The
evolution of some of these songs is really
interesting. The colored men get hold of
a melody and distort it. The white man
gets it again and produces it in
a new form. Take The New Bully,
you can trace that easily enough back to
that famous song Maid of Athens. Fe
lix McClannan hud the greatest difficulty
in persuading a publisher to accept Com
rades. Her Golden Hair Was Hanging
Down Her Back had already achieved pop
ularity when what was the surprise of the
New Yorkcriticstoflnd it embodied in The
Shop Girl as a new song. 'J. he managing
editor of the New York Sunday World sent
for me one day and said he wanted a song
for his next issue, I presented to him a
number of scores, but he did not like them.
I then hummed over to him the air of
The Band Played On: he liked it,and
the thing was really given birth it, ten
minutes. After tlte Ball? Yes I know
all about that. Charles K. Harris looked
after a cigar stand in Milwaukee for his
brother-in-law, and at odd moments used
to amuse himself with the banjo. I was
with him one day when his mother came
up and lamented that lie waistod his time
in such a way. His brother declared he would
sack him, but he wrote After the Ball
and iv a year had bought his brother's
place and put up a $00,000 building within
a block of it."
