Catty Sollars, the world's famed j
English organist of the Queen's Hall.
London. England, concerts and the:
Crystal Palace Musical Festival, Is to'
iilay at the Central Christian church,
here the eveuing of April 1.
Cathedral chitues from the Queen's,
[fall. London, 'will bo used with the
organ. Items Include the Russian
Patrol, representing the approach,
passing by and the gradual disappearance
of a Russian patrol, and the
Storm at Sea. In the patrol the
tramp of soldiers, the drums, trumpets
and military effects are clearly
portrayed. The world's press is
unanimous in declaring this organist
to be pre-eminent In such descriptive
music as the Storm, in which rain,!
wind, thunder and lightning effects j
are obtained. One English paper'
states that Mr. Scllars in this piece
obtains the most remarkable effects
ever heard on an organ. He completed
a world's record of 500 re-.(
cltals, given in direct succession onj
the largest organs of Canada and thej
United States, on the former tour. The <
largest audiences in the history of
many of the larger cities visited have
assembled. Comment Is frequently1
mado on the ease which Mr. Sellers
adapts himself to strange Instruments,
at times he never sees the organ until
commencing his recital. He usually
plays entirely from memory, sometimes
extemporizing on themes requested
by his audience.
Parsonage Weddings.
The Rev. Dr. W. C. Taylor solemnized
two marriages at the First Baptist
parsonage Saturday. The first
was at 10 o'clock in the forenoon, :
when he married Thurman Seckman i
and Opha Mason, both of Salem, and
the other at 4 o'clock in the afternoon,
when he married Grover C.
Williams, of the city, and Alta M.
Courtney, of Blandville.
Purim Piny.
The public is cordially invited to
attend a Purim play and entertainment
which will be given by the children

Among the many press notices of
criticism in regard to Marjorie Kell

the quartet concert, to be given In

Tuesday evening, William B. Edwnrds,
for twenty years director of
the First Baptist church at 8 o'clock

of the First Baptist church of Pittsburg:

WASHIlNOTOX, tMarch 18.?Grosvenor
Da we. who left this week to participate
in the campaign for the bqjird
of trade of Clarksburg for new members,
made a very interesting statement
here before his departure of an
Incident in the life of the late Henry
G. Davis. Mr. Dawe, who originated
tho Southern Commercial Congress
which has played on Important part
in the development of the industries
of the South, is one of the energetic
business men of the cspitol.
"There was," said Mr. Dawo, "a very
interesting fact In connection with the
life of the late Henry Gassaway Davis
which I have not seen referred to in
any of the recent newspaper biographies.
"According to statements which 1
heard him make at a banquet in Morgantown,
he, as a five year old boy,
was taken to see the ceremonies in
'Baltimore) when the construction ot
tho Baltimore and Ohio railroad was
begun In 1828. The honored partlcl
pant in those ceremonies was Charles
Carroll, of Carrelton. the last survivor
of the group of purposeful men
who signed the Declaration of Independence.
'The Impressive thought relative to
the Incident.Is that this country, with

lives. This Is a reassuring

and enjoyable musical entertainmontn
of the week. The program opened
most brilliantly with three seloctions

which were receivod with
great appreciation by the members

The numbers rendered by the

applause. The laoies' chorus,

thought, for if we give too much hoed
to fidgety and fault-finding people who
go back and forth through tho country
desirous of reforming everything
immediately or turning over established
usages as though they were all
wrong, it is easy for us to grow disturbed.
"Instead of yielding to a spirit of
restfulness and doubt, there should
be in the minds of every citizen of the
United States a reverential thought
for the Union; for when we stop to
contemplate tho expansion of 3,000,000
people and a fringe of territory to
100,000,000 people scattered over a continent
(these millions thrown together
hetrogeneously) and confronted with
the task of finding their way through
difficulties, In connection with which
no preceding human experience could
be called upon for light, the United
States, with all the shortcomings that
can be pointed out, stands as the marvel
of the ages."
Robert Elklns Livingstone, the
seventeen-year-old son of Col. and
Mrs. Colin H. Livingstone, died last
night at the home of his parents,
following An illness of three weeks.
Suffering from an illness of scarlet
fever and pneumonia, it has been
realized for some time that there
was little hope for his recovery but
the young man made a brave fight
for life, and his death will bring sor*
row to a wide circle of friends both
of his own and of his' narents. He
was a student at the Western High
school, where he was retarded as
particularly bright, with a winning
personality and giving everv promise
of a successful future. He was a
namesake of the late Senator Stephen
B. Elkins, for whom Col. Livingstone
was formerly a private secretary.

Tho new secretary of war, Raker,
in whom West Virginians aro pnrtic-1

from the home state, has established
already a record for himself, on his
censorship of the Mexican news.
When tho orders wero first given
to send troops into Mexico. i?r, liakor
turned over a reception room of his
office as a press room. The reporters
were all delighted, as they felt
that at last there was a secretary of
war in office who appreciated the
power of the press and was kind to
the news gatherers.
Telephone booths were put in for
the news associations and the larger
papers; private wires were run into
the newspaper offices; typewriters
were installed for fifty odd newspaper
men assigned to cover the "war"
at headquarters; mimeographs were
put in readiness to grind out bulletins
for the press.
Then the censorship lid was
clamped down, and since that time
has not been lifted for an instant by
Secretary Baker. The mimeographs,
telephones and typewriters remain
unused.' One bulletin, and one only,
was Issued when the first Funston reports
of his preparation for the expedition
were received. That was
last Saturday. There has been none
since. If, as it has been asserted,
"Silence is golden," Washington correspondents
are of the opinion that

Interest in any new cabinet family
that is to arrive, and it was a distinct
disappointment to social circles
to learn that Mrs. Baker has chosen
to stay in Cleveland, and that "Washington
society does not appeal to

brilliant and clever woman of the
highest intellectual type. Before her
marriage she was connected with the

Dr. Samuel V. Leaclr, who for many
years was well known as a minister

As a young officer In tho United
States navy Dr. Leach sailed on
board the Fulton In her famous cruise
of 1854-55 In search of the lost sloop
of war Albany, and, with one exception,
Is the last survivor of that fruitless
voyage. Resigning from the service
at Its conclusion, he prepared
ror the ministry at tbo Garrett Biblical
Institute of Evanston, III., and
for more than a half centbry filled
pulpits from Baltimore to San Francisco.
During a. pastorate In Albany,

His last pastorates were In
Wheeling, Morgantown and Charleston,

to the people whom he served. Dr.
Leach was an active member of both
