Clark, of Syracuse, is do ing much worthy work and original music work in that city, and has beeu a patent factor in uplifting the taste of his fellow townsmen in matters re lating to the tonal art. One of the memorable musical events that Syra cuse enjoyed under Mr. Clark's guid ance was the harp concert given in connection with the course arranged by the lectureship committee of the board of education. Mr. Clark? spoke on "The Harp: Its History and Fu ture." Another interesting evening arranged by him was his lecture, with musical illustrations, on "Modern String Instruments: Their Develop ment and Use.".. At a previous talk, Mr. Clark had performed a like ser rice for the modern wind Instruments. A lecture concert in honor of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Chopin and Mendelssohn formed a fitting and ef fective part of the unusually valuable course of talks which Mr. Clark vouch safed his audience during the past win ter. . "The orchestra is written for nowa days In preference to anything else, because It makes a small idea go the farthest." This opinion is one of a dozen equally pithy expressed by Mor is Rosenthal In the London Standard. No one in the profession is consider ed a better "interviewee" than the Aus trian pianist, and his views are well worth considering. "Composers of today," he declares, "have not suffi cient thoughts to construct an effect ive piano piece. The piano is a mer ciless revealer of weak design. All modern composers strive to write something novel, whereas the great composers wrote what came to them, irrespective of effect. The present ed ucation is responsible for the musical unrest of today. The young are giv Art Circles.

Rosenthal will make an American tour next season under Loudon Charlton's direction. JS Jt jt The large chorus in the opera "Pris cilla." to be presented at the Gennett theater Tuesday and Wednesday even ings by local talent, will be one of the pleasing features of the affair. Spontini's "La Vestale" was the most successful production at La Sca- la, in Milan. OS Jt OS A Wagner program constituted Panzner's farewell concert in Bremen prior to his departure for Dusseldorf. Jt J Jt - "Janek," a Polish opera, by R. von Zelenski, met with a friendly reception In Kiew. Jl 0 0 One of the reasons assigned by Mme. Sembrich for her retirement from the operatic stage at the height of her popularity, was the lack of new operas composed for the lyric sopranos. "An artist," she said, "can not live now on a repertoire of Gildas, Lucias and Traviatas, for the taste of the pub lic has advanced beyond such works. The composers are writing nothing new for lyric sopranos. The last new role I created was Mimi in 'La Boheme and immediately' after that opera Puccini turned his attention solely to dramatic roles. When I first became a singer, the old Italian reper toire was already losing its hold, and the operas of Wagner were beginning to have an influence. Think, then. how little those old works must corre spond to the musical taste of today. If composers had written new roles for singers with my style of voice, I might have listened to my friends and man agers and not ceased to sing in opera. But so long as the old music is all I find suited to my voice, I prefer to sing in concert where I can always make my programme of the best. That I have kept my voice in the candition it is today, is altogether due to the fact that throughout my' career I have steadily refused to sing anything that did not lie within my powers." Thursday afternoon, June third, a recital will be given at Earlham Col lege by pupils of Miss Lucy Francisco. T.P.A, Notes Watch for July 9, 7 a. m. A change in train schedules will be in effect today on the Pennsylvania lines. All members using these lines should govern themselves accordingly. President Quigg, Wm. Kramer and L. E. Turner left Friday afternoon to attend the national convention held at Asheville. The convention will occu py most of next week as there will be a great amount of business to come before the delegates. Horace C. Starr who was elected a delegate to the national convention, was unable, to attend, being called to Michigan on business. Wm. Kramer, who was elected alternate, accompa nied the delegation to fill the vacan cy. Rue Barton of the Richmond Candy Co.. was called to his home in Criders ville, Ohio, on account of the sudden death of his father, who met his death as a result of an accident. The sym pathy of the entire post goes out to Mr. Barton in his bereavement. The actions of the national conven tion' promise to be of much interest to all T. P. A. members of the Indiana di vision, as we have a candidate for na tional secretary in the person of Mr. T. S. Logan of Lafayette. Mr. Logan was a candidate before the conven tion for the same office two years ago at Norfolk and showed considerable strength. Mr. Lee Beaume, the pres ent national secretary is a candidate for re-election. He has filled the po sition of secretary ever since the. re organization, seventeen years ago. In diana begins to think the office should be shifted a little east of the present national headquarters and with the proper effort and push exerted at Ashe ville, Indiana will be headquarters for the national organization. Frank Coffin has accepted a position with Pogue, Miller & Co. wholesale hardware dealers of this city, and will travel in Ohio in the interest of the firm. Frank always did know a little about hardware, and will no doubt, prove a valuable man. Everybody push for the T. P. A This should be a year of action and considerable growth in our organiza tion. We all can do a little to help along the cause, so let's get down to business. Hegger has promised to help some. . After the smoke and dust of the na tional convention has cleared away, after the excitement and the noise has become a thing of the past, and every body is again peacefully plodding his time worn path. President Lebo ha promised to begin another movement within the state 5 circles and 2 make things hum for a year, if anybody can make a noise like energy and bus iness Lebo can," and we predict that there will be plenty of life in T. P. A. affairs for a few months to come.

WHITE SLAVERY THE SUBJECT OF ADDRESS Statesman Announces Tha Conditions in America Are Unfortunate and That They Must Be Remedied. Washington, May 29. "The White Slavery of today is a great problem, a pressing problem and to solve it we need another Lincoln," said Senator Owen today. He was making an ad dress to the Lincoln circle, auxiliary G. A. R. at the memorial exercises in front of the statue of Lincoln, in the Capitol rotunda. He declared that the Black Slavery of the south dif fered only in degree from the white slavery of today. "It has made my heart ache,'r said Senator Owen, "to see the anarchy arising from the day maddening chase of wealth. The wheel of commercial machinery is grinding out the lives of the Ameri can people who are compelled to work from morning till night, with barely enough pittance in return for their la bor to keep body and soul together.

I do not blame the individual for this condition of affairs, but it is a condition which must be remedied speedily, if this country is to go on the way Lincoln hoped it would go on "It is a great problem, a pressing problem and to settle it we need an other Lincoln."

This, in other words is to give up wearing extra pieces on the head not such a difficult feat In summer, either, when hats are less constantly worn and large coiffures are not so essen tial. Nor is it hard to make a striking ef fect. Brushing Is an enormous help in making a fluffy and puffy coiffure, and even though the hair be oily, a stylish dressing is possible. To make a pompadour without a cushion the haid should be divided as though for a roll, and the top section separated by making two parts toward the back, one over each temple. This is combed and brushed back, then the edge of the portion on the right is put beneath, and the under part of the hair pushed toward the front, without disturbing the evenness of the outside. This makes the pompadour stand up without "ratting" the hair beneath a process that is harmful. This middle section, puffed. Is then fastened with one pin at the back of the head, and each side Is gathered with a comb and pulled into place. taking care to keep the effect soft. This done, the pompadour is shaped. and a brush gives the final touch by stroking back the tresses, not tight to the head, but beginning at the edge of the face the bristles must be brought away from the head by an upward stroke, that causes all the hair to be- "The Halo of Heroism" By Captain F.

We will call them Tom Ford and BUly Cbamberlln. They were both ordinary young fellows among their- associates until they be came soldiers, and then they were transform ed into prema ture heroes. The girls would hare TOOK HIM TO COVER. nothing to do with the other boys, whose civilian clothes seemed very common place beside the uniforms. Tom Ford was a tall, handsome fellow, and one of the girls suddenly discovered that she loved him. And she did. A girl may be caught by the veriest tinsel, but when once caught she Is caught forever. ' "Well, Tom and Billy marched away. They did nothing but march and lie in camp for awhile and began to wish they could get Into a fight. When they did get Into a fight It had hardly begun before they wished It were over. After a charge by the enemy Billy was trying to find the remains of the regi ment that had gone in under a perfect alignment with nags flying, but all he could find were dead and wounded, passing a wounded officer. Billy heard him groan and. picking him up. wss about to carry him away when a vol ley was poured into them. The officer begged Billy to drop him. but Billy wouldn't and amid a shower of bullets took him to cover behind a stone wall. The officer died a few hours later In Billy's arms. He begged Billy to ac cept a handsome gold watch he wore, and when Billy declined, saying that he might be accused of rifling a dead body, the dying man produced a pen cil and paper and wrote down how Billy's bravery had got him to cover nod tbat he had given Billy hi watch In remembrance of the same. Only he didn't write Billy's name at all. for Billy gave him another one. and this Is how that happened: "After getting the officer to cover, the poor fellow's groans were heartrend ing and his cries for wster worse than hf groans. To set the horrible sound oat of bis ears Billy said he'd go and fird some water. As they were on elevated ground, he knew there was none, but be couldn't staad the agony nny longer without a rest. He crostted the field where his regiment bad been rut up and suddenly came upon his friend Tom Ford lying on his back, hiking strnigbt up at the peaceful heavens.

It gives a luster to the hair. To apply, a few drops should be pour ed Into the palm of one hand, rubbing the other Into it, then gently smooth ing the hair after it is brushed and ready to dress. Those who object to gum arabic and wish merely to have a lustre will get It by tinting glycerine m-lth analine dye and scenting It. A few grains of powdered alum may be added if the hair Is Inclined to be oily, but for that which Is dry alum should be omitted. For at least fifteen minutes during the day, and longer, if possible, it is well to take out all the pins and let the tresses hang loose.
