Melville A. 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

unrest of today. The young are giv

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.

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

This should be a year of action and
considerable growth in our organiza

along the cause, so let's get down to

Unfortunate and That They

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.
Indescribable 8hops.
"In many of our great cities young
girls are working in indescribable
shops. Some of them work in sweat
shops, some of them work in factor
ies, thousands of them are working
under conditions which are intolera
ble.
"Their pay Is barely sufficient to
provide nutriment for the body hvord
er that the unfortunates may return
on the following week to continue the
grinding out of wealth for the slave
owner. 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."

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.

fastened with one pin at the back of
the head, and each side Is gathered
with a comb and pulled into place.

This done, the pompadour is shaped.

stroke, that causes all the hair to be-

civilian clothes seemed very common

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

gin with an upward line, an angle that
is becoming to the face. The Ions
hair at the back Is dressed In any
fashion one chooses. A week of this
care will train the locks to stand away
from the face almost as they do over
cushions, and the effect Is far more
charming In Its softness. Several .
times through the day the brush,
should be used to help the training.
A mixture that is helpful In keeping
riotous hair In place, and may be used
with benefit cn the pompadour. Is
made from three ounces of clean gum
arabic dissolved in half a pint of rose
water. This, when clear, is tinted
with a drop of analine dye In solution.
It may be scented in any way one
wishes. 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. This airing Is
extremely beneficial, and at the same
time the roots . are rested from the
strain of holding a coiffure. At night
a good brushing and combing must be
given, and then a part made down the
middle from forehead to neck. Then
two sections are made Into separate,
loose braids, permitting the scalp .o
