On the evening of the tenth of De cember, one of the musical events of the season in Richmond will take place when tho Musical Study club will have an open meeting, each mem ber being prlviiiged to invite a guest. The club has had several such meet ings and they are always marked by an exceptionally fine musical program and by the brilliant assemblage, of people in attendance. The program at the December concert will be made up of Liza Lehman's "Daisy Chain" and several of the best numbers which have been given at the morning meet ings of the club this fall. The mem bers feel that the programs given thus far have been exceptionally good and that the public will enjoy the repetition of several of them. "Tho Daisy Chain'' is made up of child ver ses by Robert Louis Stevenson, Laur ence Alma Tadema, Norman Gale and W. B. Rando, set to music by Liza Lehman. The Persian Garden also by Liza Lehman has been given by members of the club and created much favorable comment at the time of its presentation. There are twelve songs of childhood in "The Daisy Chain" and the solos will be taken by Mrs. Will Earhart, Miss Marie Kauf man, Mr. Fritz Crull, of Indianapolis and Mr. Otto Krone. It will be given in the Starr Piano rooms. Tho Musi cal club this year is in a very pros perous condition and much more inter est is being shown than in former years. The meetings are well attend ed and there is a very large member ship waiting list. 4 4 4 The various choir directors of the churches in the city are making ex tensive preparations for their Christ mas music and from now on extra choir rehearsals will be held weekly. The music at the First Presbyterian church has not yet been selected but will be in a short time. Former years elaborate cantatas have been given and this form of music will probably be given this year. The choir is one of the largest in the city and is under the direction of Prof. Will Earhart, with Mrs. Earhart, Mr. Frank Braf fett, Mr. Otto Krone and Miss Mario Kaufman as soloists. At the first M. E. church a large choir under the di rection of Prof. J. L. Harris, will in the evening of Christmas Sunday, give Handel's Messiah. As the production is quite long it will have to be short ened to some extent. In the morning a special program will be given which has not yet been fully made out by Prof. Harris, but it will include num bers from "The Holy City," and oth ers. At St. Paul's Episcopal church the choir will give special music and an innovation in church circles in Richmond will be the midnight ser vice at this church on Christinas eve. It is a very Impressive service and it will be a entirely choral. At various other churches the music will be equ ally as good. 4 4 4 At Indianapolis some time during this month, the Boston Symphony or chestra will be an attraction and will be attended by a number of Richmond musicians. The orchestra is under the direction of Karl Muck and is one of the finest in the country. 4 4 Miss Esther Bessleman is taking the place of Mrs. Fred Miller as organist at the First Presbyterian church dur ing the illness of Mrs. Miller, who is at Cincinnati in a hospital. 4 4 The former members of the Rich mond high school Ladies' chorus who are still in school are very anxious for the reorganization of the club. The organization has been much missed in the life of the school and in the chapel exercises, where offen programs were given by the girls. The annual con certs are also events which are miss ed. Later in the season, Prof. Ear hart may take up the work again. The High school orchestra is in a flourish ing condition and is rehearsing much new music. 4 4 4 The musical work at Garfield is at tracting much attention from the mu sical edncators in this part of the country and many visitors have been at the school lately for the purpose of studying the work which is on the de partmental plan. The orchestra under the direction of Prof. Earhart, is an important feature. In the near future the school will give an entertainment which will be quite an elaborate af fair. Those in charge feel that they have several unusually Interesting and unique- numbers for the program. 4 4 4 On the 25th of this month at the Gennett theatre, an event which will be of much enjoyment, to the music lovers of the city will be the concert to he given by Frafteis McMillen. an Ohio man who has been educated abroad ar--, who is one of the finest violinists the country. There will no doubt K a large audience to hear him. 4 4 v Miss Florence Shute of this city who was awarded the Bryn Mawr scholar ship from Earlham College has been made a member of the Bryn Mawr Glee Club at the college which is deemed quite an honor Miss arry, a Philadelphia vocal lead er is their instructor.

In addition to other num bers by Mrs. King, organist and mem bers of the choir the Quartet compos ed of Mrs. Gorman, soprano, Mrs. Longnecker, contralto, Mr. Paris tenor and Mr. Harris, baritone will give a collection of songs from childhood, by Robert Louis Stevenson, Eugene Field, Lora Houghton and others with the musical setting by Liza Lehman. The program will include tour num bers from "The Daisy Chain' and six numbers from "More Daisies," a later book by the same composer. These songs from child-land are charming to all, old and young and have a most clever musical arrangement. Mr. Har ris had planned to give the "Daisy Chain" last winter, most of the num bers having been prepared, but was prevented from doing so by the diffi culty In securing Mr. Paris at a con venient date. Mine. Samaroff opened her tour in Boston on October 2Sth with a house crowded to the doors and this she re peated on Friday evening, November 1, in Buffalo when she gave a recital in the large convention hall. She now has the happy record of having token in more money at a recital in Boston than any other pianist, save only Pad erewski, Rosenthal and de Pachmann. This week she is giving recitals in Grand Rapids and Cleveland. Prof. J. L. Harris will remove from his present location in the Masonic temple to the Kelly block, having se cured a large and comodious room on the fourth floor of that building. The room is very much lar.zer than his studio in the Masonic building and will afford opportunity for recitals and entertainments of like character. Mme. Paderewskl has returned to America with her husband, as keen as ever in her desire to raise sufficient funds to erect in Warsaw a monument to the memory of the greatest of all musical Poles, Chopin. She has now got together a little over $2,000 and all of this has come from the sal of Mr. Paderewski's autographs. When they were in America three years ago and were just starting the fund, they raised something over $1,000. At that time, the Russian government refused to allow the solicitation of subscrip tions for the monumer.t in Poland al though it gave its consent to the erec tion of the monument. Now it has re moved its ban on subscription, but as a result of the internal troubles of the last two years the country is so poor that erecting monuments is out of the question. Since he arrived in Ameri j ca Mr. Paderewskl has been set upon !by the autograph hunters and this 1 year he will do the same as he did I three years ago. charge one dollar for . the simple autograph and two dollars when he adds a bar of music. All the money received in this way is turned over to Mme. Paderewskl who sets it aside for the fund, so that seeker. af ter autographs will get what they de side and at the same time contribute to an object which should appeal to even lover of music.

I Four cars attached to the freight en-' glne were demolished, as was also the I engine. The passenger engine was damaged only in the front part and was able to pull away under its own steam. The injured were all taken to one car, where surgeons attended them. W. II. Large, the most seri ously injured, was taken to his home in Detroit and an ambulance summoned to await his train. lie is an old soldier and was just returning from the toast. The enginemen of the freight would have been instantly killed had they not jumped, as tbe whole cab and tender was splintered. The cnginemtn of; the passenger also jumped and were slightly hurt. Took a Risky Chance. The freight engine had been ordered to the yards by Yardmaster Ed. E. Romy, who had sent it there to get four freight car3, under the lmpres sfon that the passenger was twenty minutes late, but it was only four iit'n utes late. The crew of the freight say they knew the chance was riky, but obeyed the orders cf the yardmas ter. When nearing the switch the fireman saw the headlight of the pas senger a mile away and, seizing a red flag, ran up the track to signal it. while the engineer hastened as swift ly as possible to back In a switch which was near. When the passenger hit the fr?lcht it was going probably thirty-five miles an hour, and the freight, was almost still. Th crash was terrific. Twoj freight cara had cabbage in them mni the residents of that part of the city have an opportunity to fill their lar ders with sauerkraut. One car was loaded with coal which detectives are watching and another had a large number of c-igara in it, which smok ers are enjoying today. Blame Put on Yardmaster. The wreck crew and surgeons were immediately summoned and the task of dressing the Injuries and clearing the track began without delay. The track was cleared in three hours. The passenger cars were l ull ed into ihe city over the switch and the people that, were able continued their journey to Detroit. A large number of suit caf-.es were iott, as they flew through the windows when the crath came and nothing has been een of them since. No. 2 is a fast mail and Is scheduled at sixty miles an hour.
