This evening at St. Paul's Episcopal church a choral service will be given and an invitation is extended to all lovers of music. The choral service dates from before the time of Solo mon's temple, when King David wrote the psalms to be intoned with accom paniment. Once a month an effort is made at St Paul's church with some of the impressive characteristics of the services in the English cathedrals. Everything is sung or intoned except the lessons from the Bible and the address. Latitude is given after the third collect and at the time of the of fertory for anthem or solo work. There will be several solos. Jean Gererdy, the 'cello virtuoso, plays but thirty minutes in his recitals before the public and for those thirty minutes he receives $600 $20 a min ute! At first thought it seems that artists are over paid, but some critic of an ingenuous turn has deducted the following interesting facts about the playing of this artist: y This artist makes the college ath- W.

In playing a 'cello solo entitled "Papil lon" by David Popper, which has five pages, there are 800 notes to be played and each must be clear and distinct as a bell. Those S00 notes must be played in precisely one minute. Each note requires a movement of the arm traversing one yard, or S00 yards in all, in one minute. This means 2,400 feet or nearly a half mile traversed by his arm in one minute. The aver age wood-sawer makes 40 strokes to j the minute, while Gerardy makes 800 strokes. The young woman who won the record at the Business Men's ex hibit in New York as an expert type writer says that the average speed of an expert Is TO words a minute, while the average length of a word is five letters, or 350 motions of the fingers in one minute. Mr. Gerardy has her beaten by 450 motions. So after all the skill of an artist in his perform ances is to be considered in connec tion with the price he receives. Theodore Thomas' orchestra will be at Dayton, O., for a concert on Novem ber 10th. In all probability many Richmond people will attend tho concert to be given at Dayton, O., in the Victoria theatre on the evening of Tuesday, Oc tober 29th, by Mme Marcella Sem brich. It is an opportunity that is rare ly afforded to Richmond people to hear this celebrated artiet. Her ap pearance at Dayton is under the di rection of Mr. A. F. Thiele, of Dayton. The report that Mr. Harry Paris, of Muncie, will open a studio in Rich mond, seems to have no foundation. It is, however, intimated that he may de vote a day or two in Richmond if he could be assured a class that would Justify him. 4 Already music publishing houses are sending out their advance matter for Christmas music. As is usually the case the choir directors will have to ransack a mass of "stuff to find a very limited number of selections that are meritorious; in fact the vast major ity are published to sell and without great regard for quality. 4 4 4 Local organists will appreciate the coming of Prof. Donley, Indianapolis organist. Seldom are music lovers af forded an opportunity to hear an or gan such as the one at Reid Memorial church. With its almost limitless possibilities and combinations in the hands of such an artist as Donley, many will doubtless avail themselves of the opportunity to hear his recital Tuesday night. 4 f 4 Guests at the Jay-Hunt wedding Thursday evening were delighted with the charming manner in which Mrs. Ralph Porterfleld-Polk, of Indianapo lis, sang a collection of love songs and bridal melodies. Purity of tone and technical accuracy are hers and she was the recipient of many compli ments. Richmond can well feel proud ot her. Miss Juliet Rbns will sing this evening at St. Paul's Episcopal church at the choral service. 4 g The appearance of Jan Kubelik at Dayton, O., on Thursday, December 12th, will attract many Richmond lov ers of music. This young Hungarian violinist stands without a peer in his class. n .'5 i Is' It 604-608 Main St. eunlkeip O OS o Chinaware, Stoves, Utensils. 604-60$ Main St. i IT 'I m m W4 1 A Fall Display of Flee CMna, Cuitt (Glass, Woocl and Willow Ware, Baskets and Graitlfle Ware.

"Reading, most of it, by candlelight Indoors, up against a hot register oi steam pipes, is a disease. I doubt If 11 i does any one much good. The best reading seems to need the best open air. When I was down on the creek Timber creek and roamed out and along the water, I always took a book, a little book, however rarely I made use of it. It might have been once twice, three, four, five, even nint times, .1 passed along the same traL and never opened the book, but then there was a tenth time always when nothing but a book would do not tree or water or anything else only s book, and it was for that tenth "trip that I carried the book."

The man's shirt front was far from ! spotle&s, and his waistcoat aud coat were covered with grime and grease, but a large buttonhole bouquet was placed on the lapel of his coat "What do you think of this?" he said to a casual acquaintance, point ing to the bouquet "Where do you j think I got itV" "Don't i.ijow," admitted the other, "Perhaps it grew there."
