American! going abroad the coming sum
mer must remember that thore will be no
Bayreuth festival this year. In its place
there will bo a Wagner festival In London
In May and June, under tho dlroctlon of
Jlr. Anton Scidl, and with the greatest
oasts ever heard of ln the Nlbelung Tetral
ogy. Two series arc to be given, but the
present Indications are that Americans
desiring to hear these performances will
do well to arrange with London friends to
have the matter attended to at once. The
situation Is eloquently summed up In the
following from tha London Dally News:
"It Is doubtful whether tho oldest opera
toer can recollect an announcement which
SS excited such extraordinary Interest In
musical circles as that of the two Wagnet
eyries at Covent Garden. Wo first printed
details of the performance and of the cast
only a fortnight ago, and the house Is even
now almost sold out, more than four
months before tho proposed representa
tions can take place. The opera box office
Is, ot course, not yet opened, and so far as
these performances aro concerned, It prob
ably never will be. The Covent Garden
subscribers have boon duly cared for by
Mr. Forsyth, but otherwise the matter has
been In tho hands of Mr. Schulz Curtlus.
Yesterday that gentleman was able to
announce that all the seats at his disposal
In the balcony and amphitheater stalls had
been applied for twice over within twenty
four hours. Today letters of regret will be
posted, with a bare intimation that If a
reply be sent by return Mr. Curtlus may
■till manage to allot scats ln the orches
tral stalls. Stalls are, however, being rap-
Idly taken up by the libraries, and there
Is no question that before next Juno they
will command very high premiums."
Miss Alice Beach McComas, the talented
daughter of Judge McComas of this city,
Is rapidly establishing an enviable reputa
tion for herself as a planiste. Miss McCo
mas has been engaged for Plotro Marino's
concerts In San Francisco. The first of
these was given last Wednesday. Marino
Is said to have made wonderful progress
during his two years' tuition with YfßJ'e,
and the critics speak of his playing ln the
highest terms. At Wednesday's concert
Miss McComas played Chopin's F sharp
nocturne, Liszt's "Nightingale" and E mi
nor "Folonalse." -
The legal right of a tenor to refuse to
sing more than four times a week has been
asserted by Broullk, who was summarily
dismissed by the management of the Na
tional opera at Budapesth a month or so
ago. After his dismissal the tenor ap
pealed to the courts of his country, nnd. us
■ result, has been awarded 25,000 francs and
the cost of his action and his position with
the National opera. The decision was
given on tho gronud that it was Injurious
to the voice to sing four Wagner operas
within the space of seven days.
A good story is told of Brahms father,
who was a contra-bass player In a Ham
burg orchestra. One day the conductor re
marked thut he was playing too loudly,
whereupon old man Brahms retorted:
"Herr Capellmelster, this Is my contra
bass, I want you to understand, and I shall
play on it as loudly as I please."
Here is what Martin Luther thought of
I have always loved music, and I would
not give away for a great deal the little
that I know. I am not at my ease with
those who have a contempt for music.
Muslo Is like a discipline—lt makes men
sweeter, more virtuous and wiser. One can
be sure of finding the germs pf a goodly
number of virtues in the hearts nf those
who love music, but those who have no
taste for it I value ns I value a stick or a
■tone. I pretend, and I declare It without
shame, thnt after theology there Is no art
comparable to music. When natural music
Is perfected by art, we see, as fur>as we
are able, tho great and perfect wisdom of
God in His tine work of music.
From news received here last week our
friends of the Del Conte Opera Co. have
again como to grief, but the difference
which was between some of the leading
members of the company and their manag
er may have been once more repaired. The
Italian singers made a big "jump" from
Helena, Mont., to Winnipeg, Manitoba,
and tn tho latter place sang to crowded
houses. They then went to Minneapolis,
where the trouble occurred. Mrs. Geneva
Johnston Bishop has been traveling with
the company.
W. S. Young of San Dlcgo, who was to
have been director-pf the newly organised
Mendelssohn club of men's voices, has ac
cepted an offer in tho east. Harley Hamil
ton has been selected lo till the place, and
work will commence next Thursday. The
rehearsals will be held once n week in the
Southern California music hall. It is In
tended that the rehearsing shall be most
thorough before the first concert, which
will probably bo given in June at Simpson
Los Angeles may he treated to a visit
from the famous Knelsel Quartet of Bos
ton some time In May. The quartet Is com
posed of leading members of the Boston
Symphony orchestra. Their concerts in
the east have attracted much attention and
It is to be hoped the western tour will be

John Philip Sousa, the famous musician

Italian theater this sour vengeance. The

Suggested by the Single Star on Her
Flag When a Republic
Dallas, Tex.—M. S. Stokely of Dubuque,
lowa, some time %f(o wrote to Governor
Culberson, asking why Texas Is called the
Lone Star state. The latter has answered
the query in an elaborate letter, giving all
the history hoarlng upon the subject. The
governor states that there are only two
accounts of tho origin of tho designation.
One is that Henry Smith, the tirst chiel
executive of the Texas republic, having no
seal with which to stamp official docu
ments, cut a brass button from his coat,
on which was engraved a star, and used
this as a seal. Another, supported by John
Henry llrown, the Texas historian, and
Governor Culberson, is that the lone star
was chosen by the young republic in con
trast to tho constellation used by the
United States. The governor concludes:
"The first congress of the republic of
Texas met Ooctober 3. 1836, and during the
session adopted a flag and a seal, which aro
those now In use by the stute. The flag ts
of red, whito and blue, with a live-pointed
single star of white, and the seal is a star
surrounded with a wreath of laurel and
oak. The conclusion Is entirely reasonable
and logical that the flag nnd seal of Texas
were originally suggested by those flags
of her revolutionary war, inspired them
selves by tho American Insignia of sover
eignty, and that the designation of the
Lone Star state comes from the use of a
single star on her standard."
Alice Rollins Crane Writes of the Disease and Distress at
Skaguay—The Poor Postal Facilities
♦ SKAGUAY, Alaska, Feb. 13.—(Special Correspondence to The Her
■f aid.) I am still here, storm-bound. While the sun shines occasionally,
♦ the snow never stops perambulating in strong force over, around,
■f through, under and into everything. The cold is not so intense, but
♦ the wind travels at a velocity that makes the most of us look out ln
♦ stead of going out. Almost every day some poor deluded human be
•f ing is brought in with frozen limbs to be amputated, and how many
♦ are left behind who will never co m e in lam unable to say. Cerebro
♦ meningitis is taking across the gre a t divide many of the seemingly
■f strongest men of this place, but 1 find upon inquiry that they are
♦ either poorly clothed or they aren nt0t properly housed. The buildings
-f are mere shacks, and a bed costs from $2 to $3 a night. You can see
♦ that those with scantymeansccann nn t Indulge in a bed; they are forced
■f to do the next best thing, by wrapping themselves up in their scan
♦ ty blankets, huddled In tents like ra t s . and, well, I don't see how they
•f ever live the nights out, Such is the condition of many who have come
♦ here with the expectation of returning with sacks of gold!
♦ In conversation with several old miners who have been in Alaska
♦ for many years, I learn that in th e ir opinion the government will be
♦ called upon within one year to suc t . 0 r the unfortunates who will be
♦ found ir. Alaska, as they say the majority now arriving have no fitness
•f for the country or any knowledge of mining, and that where they have
♦ gone over the country prospecting and found nothing, there the best
♦ finds have been located; and also that thousands are here and coming
♦ to get work other than mining, which cannot possibly be had, and that
♦ they must eat and drink, and that they have no money. So you see
+ there will be suffering surely.
♦ There is in the postofflce tons of mall, I am told, and It seems im
♦ possible to distribute it. A young kid with a little down on his upper
♦ lip stands at the window of the Postofflce and presumes to wait on
♦ the string of people (which is sometimes a mile long) standing In the
♦ cold, shivering, waiting their turn. This is all wrong, a disgrace and
♦ a shame.
+ The competition for business over the different passes is active.
♦ All claim the best route and the shortest. We are informed that the
■f Canadian government has put a duty on dogs of $30 a head. I cannot
■f . vouch for the report, but anything seems possible here. As soon as the

♦ my dogß. I am in training, and walk from five to ten miles a day
+ when the weather permits. My dogs draw me about as far daily in
♦ good weather, so you see I am ln line of succes as far as that is con

■f Many miners say that about half of the claims now held will never
♦ be worked by the present owners, and that because, first, they do not
♦ understand the business, and, second, they have no means to prose
♦ cute the work. Old miners estimate that there are fully 400 miles of
♦ river bottoms containing more or less gold, much of which has never
4- been prospeoted by any human being and is remote from supplies or
♦ any habitation. Consequently it is extremely difficult for any but ex
-4 perienced men to succeed. I am also told by the same people that the

"Ye Must Be Born Again."
An Original Conceit Written for The
Herald by Kinnosuke of Japan
"Way back yonder, before the Calendar
was born," so began the reputed story tell
er ln a bear skin (which means a hunter).
The heavens and earth pricked their ears.
The night was still. And a camp-fire—tho
most ill-mannered of all the uncouth on
earth—danced on the smiling faces of halt
a dozen hunters, chuckled way down ln Its
stomach, and said: Listen now, some
thing good is a-coming!" Sure enough, a
story did flow from the Hps of the old man,
to the cadence of a mountuln stream, who
sang sweetly by ln distance.
This is the story:
"I am awfully tired," sighed Mr. Saru,
the monkey. Thun he chuckled, squawked,
stormed fearfully. He culled Mr. Gya, the
big snake, names. And used a vast quan
tity ot unholy language—almost enough
to make himself a hero ln the eyes of tho
young Americans. And who can blame
him? This gentleman was a monkey of
family. And Mr. Qya paid him a cordial
visit last night, rather out of calling hours,
and made three of Mr. Sara's babies troop
down the horny road to his stomach. Mr.
Gya, of scaly, black hauberk, thanked Mr.
Saru. And Mr. Suru said: "Not at nil.
Come again. We are delighted to have
you," and many other things, just to show
his manners (nothing hypocritical about
tbls, you understand), "and —and—and "
then he shook like an autumnal leaf and
hugged his wife.
Now, Mrs. Saru was a dear, little creat
ure, of liberal education —of wide reading—
and of good memory—the help ln the time
of need to Mr. Suru, as all the wives should
be and are not.
"Precious darling, the life of my soul, my
dear, dear husband!" sobbed Mrs. Saru,
the pride of Monkey tribe. Ana her hus
band listened, for he knew the oracle was
about to speak.
"Dearest light of my heart! Suppose—
suppose we become Mr. Htto, the human."
"What wife! that ridiculous, naked,
black-headed beast?" sniggered Mr. Saru,
and hugged his stomach and laughed huge
ly till tears coursed freely—lf three hours
had scarcely passed sln?e the loss of their
babies. But he repented. For he saw thut
hurt his wife's feeling.
Then Mrs. Saru—who, after the manner
of all the womenfolks, was a bjg hero
worshiper—expatiated like a balloon over
tho merits of Mr. Hlto, the human. She
told all—how Mr. Hlto had pinned Mr. Gya
once wlthanarrow; howhehad chased their
neighbor, Mr. Shika, the deer; how he had
whipped Mr. Inu, the dog, who hud cow
ered, whined, salaamed, like a coward, at
his feet, and other things without number.
"Well, wife, I am ready—l am ln with
you," suid her husband, quite squelched.
And Mrs. Saru grinned quite complacent
ly. She knew—through not a few experi
ments of her own—that man Is a toy of
"But how—how are wo to become Mr.
"That Indeed, my dear husband, Is the
point," returned Mrs. Saru. "We can
walk on our hind legs and straight up, as
Mr. Hlto, the human, can, only a least little
bit more practice would make us stralght
Her husband nodded assent.
"Wo can laugh, and as for talking,"
posited Mrs. Saru, with great emphasis,
"we can out-talk Hito-folks at any time."
Mrs. Saru's knowledge—although a won
derful woman—was somewhat limited on
this point. "Now, the only thing that we
differ radically from Mr. Hito is our hair,"
concluded Mrs. Saru.
"Take off this fur overcoat, wife?"
"Yes, and the tail. But we tun coll that
under our seat, that is. If It hurts too much
to cut It oft," said Mrs. Saru.
"But, again, how are we going to take
the hair off?"
"Pull them off one by one," suggested
Mrs. Saru. And, being a wise woman, she
watched the effect of that novel process
upon her husbuud.
Mr. Saru caught a hair on his hand be
tween his fingers and gave a jerk. "A—
A—llll—ta—tata—ta!" screamed Mr. Saru,
and twirled all over the place as if a
mountain was about to fall square upon
his head. Meanwhile his wife chuckled
way down in her gullet and said most
charmingly: "My darling, how womanish!"
Then Mrs. Saru suggested that they should
go to the sharp edge of a rock and polish
off their hair—no pain in that, she assured
her husband.
Down they started Into the valley
In the greatest good humor in the
world. They tolled steadily. Now, Mrs.
Saru know her husband's weakness—let
none think tho same aloud in her presence,
for she would die lighting against any one
who thinks that her darling is not perfuc-
Hon Incarnate—that his mind Is very vag
abondlsh. So she would sing, lest he might
become weary of that vital undertaking:
"O, where are my babies?
O, where are my babies?
Tho winds that hang on the vines
Tell mo where my babies are."
"Suppose wo have a little recess," put ln
Mrs. Saru, as tho twilight began to dream
"No," said her husband, "the business Is
too urgent." A few minutes later the ami
able, the most progressive pair of monkeys
rolled on the ground from sheer exhaustion
und had glorious dreams.
"How lovely!" said Mrs. Saru the next
morning, loud enough to wake up her hus
bund, and contemplated him through her
narrowly closed eyelids—which is the mask
a soul in ecstatic admiration takes. Thu
sun was quite up when Mr. Saru heard his
wife and woke, und fell vacantly perusing
his fond wife. He felt stiff and sore. "If 1
am lovely, the rubbing und bruising of yes
terday must have left un entirely different
print on me from what they did on you, my
poor wife," thought he. He did not tell his
wlfo so. He showed his good breeding. He
knew that It is uncouth to speak anything
detrimental about the looks of women
All the day they worked hard. They
were rather extravagant in the matter of
bathing—but. it was in Japan. And then
It was of downright necessity. They be-
camo coated with blood and had to jump
into a pond. The next day came. And they
were awfully stiff. But Mr. Saru was
ashamed to say so to his wife, for she
lauded him to the skies for his supple
graces. The work went on. Screaming,
squeaking, shaffllng, shambling along, till
they fell fainting at even-tide. The autumn
had set ln ln earnest. The heavy frost
glorified the withering earth. And moun
tains of tinted loaves said to the sun
every morning: "Don't we look like big
coeoanut cakes? Come and taste!"
A woman went out to gather her faggot
one morning. She came horne —but without
any faggot on her back. But with a very
heavy burden on her heart. And fell
across tho threshold of her hut almost as
soon as her shadow did.
"What's the mutter, O, Nabe?" asked
her husband, as ho picked her up. She was
ns cold us frost. Site shook and her eyes
were rolling and aflame, ready to shunt
out like a Roman candle. He put her to
bed. Now, there was a superstition at
that time among the hunters that a man
or a woman who saw a dead monkey at
any time, but especially in the morning
starting out to work, shall die with the
death of the .very same day.
The hunter went out to see what might
have happened to his wife. Knowing
thoroughly well where his wife hunts for
her faggot, he climbed over a ledge. He
said: "Ah, I see!"
The two bloody, naked monkeys, Mr.
Saru and his wife—cold, stiff, grim, with
the diamond fringe of frost on their eye
lashes and whiskers! They were immod
estly naked. The sight was so completely
out of harmony with the serene beauty of
the autumnal morning that it shocked the
sense of propriety even In the heart of the
weather-beaten and sun-hardened moun
There they were, tho most aspiring mon
keys that ever lived! Them the hunter
tlung Into the chasm below. Hollow
sounds chasing down the deep, ghost
fashion. The mountaineer was sad at
heart. For he knew that the star of his
lovo would flicker out at the setting of the
sun that day. His wife, being a pious wo
man, believed with all her heart the doom
thut superstition put upon her.
And the pity and the outrage of the
whole business is that since the day of
Mr. Saru and Mrs. Suru, Mr. Hlto, the
human, Is studiously imitating their bril
liant exumple.
"Out of Sight"
"Out of sight, out of mind?"
No, I am not blind;
But, dear, be so inclined
As to put it aright—
When you're out of my sight
Then I'm out of my mind,
. —Judge.
