PAGE FIVE. Social Side of Life Edited by ELIZABETH R. THOMAS Phone 1121 before 11:30 In order to Insure publication In the Evening Edition I look Into the quaintly pictured face My mother's face when she was but a child . So pale, so sad, so delicately styled, Tie smitten poet of a stricken race. Her eyes, like two deep pools of sapphire light. Reflecting naught or sunshine or of day No childish Joyousness, but all the gray Mysterious shadows of the dusk of night. O, little child, with eyes of tear dimmed blue. Have you walked down the road that leads to Now In loneliness, and did you not know how That other child thafs me stood waiting you? Have we not chimed the bells of joy to mark Our meeting on the path 'twixt dark and dark? Marjorie Benton Cook. FROM SONNETS. The above la from a series of son nets entitled "To Mother" which find publication by Forbes and Company of Chicago. The poems are written by Marjorie Benton Cook, a former Rich mond girl. They are spontaneous, tender, sometimes subtle, and always full of fine feeling. Sometimes the note struck is sorrowful, but the great er number are delicately whimsical and fond. NOT QUITE FOUR WEEK8. Just think of it not quit four weeks until Christmas and already the shops are thronged with eager visitors anxious to get choice articles for dear ones. However, there are many who will see their resolutions to shop early vanishing Into thin air before the an nouncement that only a limited num ber of days remain until Santa Claus will swoop down the chimney, cram the socks with good gifts. They will have iu lite nine ujr me luibiuh 11 an mo messages of cheer they have planned in their hearts are to materialize. In the old days we remembered only the folk in our Immediate family circles, with the lapse of the rule in honor of some specially loved friend, but today all that is different and the woman who finds her list running into large numbers is a fortunate being if she will but stop to realize the width of her horizon, and her rich pos session of many points of contact with life. Christmas is such a beautiful sea son with Its message of good will that we can't bear to leave one friend ungreeted. 4 visiting card with a mes sage" of cheer of friendship to the dis tant one and takes little thought and less effort. There are Christmas let ters for those very near our hearts and these need not be long drawn out to bear what we would have them say for us. The gifts that mean ex penditure or personal effort, or for those who live very close to our hearts for wide as our affections and inter ests are in their compass the poor, weak pocketbook can't be made to stretch about them all!

With Thanksgiving so near at hand the young people who have been at tending school at the different col leges and universities will come flock ing home. However, not as many students come home for Thanksgiving as they do at Christmas time. 1 This is probably due to the fact that the ; Thanksgiving vacation is much short-! er than the holiday vacation. There i will be several dances given and no ; doubt many dinner parties will feature i the day. Most of the parties will be amI1 offnloa n n H4. A 1 Xt fa tiafiollv ' given over to family reunions.

The following from a New York Dis patch to the Cincinnati Enquirer is of interest here, as Mrs. Elder formerly resided here: The Daughters of Indiana in New York, of which Mary Garrett Hay is president, entertained themselves in a cheerful and enterprising way yester day afternoon in the college room of the Hotel Astor. They showed that in their monthly gatherings they do not need to employ talent outside of their own state to make an afternoon pass pleasantly. The program was arrang ed by Mrs. J. F. Elder, Chairman of the day, for the entertainment of the president of the club. Miss Hay, in a speech at the end of it, emphasized the fact that every one of the persons on the program was born in Indiana. More than 75 persons were assembl ed by 3 o'clock. Lois Peirce-Hughes began from various sources the inter esting events of the month in Indiana. She has culled from various sources the interesting events oT interest, to members of the club. Mildred Dilling, who is studying music in this city, played several solos on the harp. Ter esa Maxwell-Conover, an actress, who was born in Indiana, gave several readings. Ethel M. Peterson, who soon will go to Europe to study for grand opera, sang a soprano solo. KERSEY-POWERS.

Those present were: Misses Irene Painter, Grace Wilson, Edna and Hazel Albin, Isabell Ayers, Florence McMahan and Marguerite Tucker. Games, music and conversation were Old People's Home Fails Inmates Thrown on Charity A "home for old people' recently be came' bankrupt in Detroit, and many inmates who had paid into it every dollar they had in the world, expect ing to be assured of a comfortable old age. were thrown on charity. We say that every institution of thi3 nature ought to be under supervision of the state so such things could not happen. It is the duty of the young and strong to safeguard the welfare of the old and feeble. Their health and vigor, for example should be kept up as much as possible. Nothing is so good for this purpose as Vinol, our delicious cod liver and iron preparation without oil. Miss A. H. Ralston of Mt. Vernon, N. Y., says: "As a tonic. I think Vinol is excellent and especially for an old person. A condition of general debility which had lasted for months yielded promptly to Vinol and this gives me the fullest confidence in it." Vinol is not only pleasant to take, but always agrees with the stomach and we guarantee it absolutely. Leo H. Fihe. Druggist, Richmond, Ind. MARCELLA P.

Mathews for the Musical Observer of New York: The musical situation at Richmond, Indiana, is one of the most unusual and interesting that I have ever met; especially interesting in ways which will appeal to every lover of sym phony music and real culture in mu sic, because here in Richmond the ad vance front of the list of music lovers and workers is the line of orchestral players a list most unusual in num bers, very highly dispersed as to ages and experience, and thoroughly native to the town itself. The following few statistics will show what I mean, and in reading them, please remember that Richmond is not a city of a hundred thousand people, but one of the total number of twenty-three thousand, according to the last census. Let us begin at the front of the ad vancing music wedge: Richmond has a symphony orchestra numbering 65 players, organized co-operatively, re hearsing through the season, furnish ing accompaniments to the last two May festivals, playing symphony pro grams and the like, right along as an (LD1F 1fclhi3 IKvoiryilhiainij I&3riltuis3ril TTIhisiinilksnvaini toslk IRriltuiSinig Sail The store being closed on Thursday, Thanksgiving, there will be but four sale days left.

They are said to have outdone themselves at the last festival, in accompanying the Verdi "Requiem," imparting to that highly dramatic and sonorous work an impetus and beauty which carried everything before it. No doubt this was highly creditable, as our great and enthusiastic friend, Sir Edward Elgar, would say; but it is not half so remarkable as this particu lar, which I have saved until now. Namely, out of these 65 players, all of whom live in Richmond, less than ten were orchestral players before com ing here. All the rest, the 55, have been educated or have educated them selves right here in Richmond. Al most every one has graduated from the Richmond high school, after three or four years experience in a student orchestra. The beautiful normality of this or chestral development shows again in the fact that it has proceeded from centers. For instance, at the very center of the whole, should be placed the name of F. K. Hicks, the concert master, who is a violin teacher and has taught all the violins; both those who, as St. Paul 6ays, "have already attained," and thefse who are expect ed to "attain" as years pass on. An other of these blessed ones who have had salt in themselves, is Mr. J. R. Watson, first oboe. Watson was crazy to learn oboe, which appealed to him for the beautiful tone-color it has; ac cordingly, he got himself an oboe, learned it himself, with such lessons as ! he could get now atid then from play j ers passing through ; a month now and j then in Cincinnati, and he has become a lovely player with a beautiful tone, distinctively oboe in character, and he has educated the other oboe players. Among the other admirable musi cians, each of whom has become the inspirer and teacher of his own in strument are the following: Mr. Jesse Woods, a leading piano teacher, and an admirable player on the double bass. His department is still short one or two instruments, but he has done an excellent work. Mr. Chas. H. Groce, a German horn player, has proven himself a mission ary; Mr. Hubert Smith, a fine 'cellist, pupil of Mr. Unger of the Thomas or chestra, and Mr. Smith has here some most promising pupils: Mr. Henry Runge, head of the clari net department; Mr. L. C. King, a printer and thus concerned in pre serving the arts, is master of the trombone.

Thus we arrive at the point where the road forks and the question natur ally arises, "By which road came this orchestra, so unusual and so large, iu a place where (it being preter-natural-ly American and Quaker, and thus a priori impossible for an orchestra to grow in) not one would expect to find it, Here we strike that center of Americanism, the High School, which has a four years' course, in which for ten years musical studies have been electives with due credit towards graduation, and where for eleven years there has been a high school orchestra, which numbered last term 50 players, including the unusual ones, such as Trombones, French horns, bassoons and wood wind generally. The high school orchestra rehearses regularly, plays choice pieces for opening exer cises, and acquires in this way four years' orchestral experience, with a background of two years' special study in music from the side of harmony and structure, as well as that subject so commonly ignored, the study of music from the standpoint of its aes thetics. They are intelligent musi cians, these high school boys and girls, and they know what they are playing. But about seven years ago yet an other preparatory school of orchestral work was opened, in the Eighth grade orchestra, which numbered last year 23 players also with practically the appointment of the full instrumental colors.

It is merely another incident of the influence of the supervisor of music in Richmond. Mr. Will Earhart, who has been in this post twelve years. Mr. Karhart, although born in Ohio, chose to go into music rather than into poli tics. From the earliest boyhood he played the violin and hankered after orchestral music He did not, that I know of, actually hire a hall and pay his boy friends to play under his ba ton, but he always had a kind of or chestra. Thus he grew up with or chestral ideas, and with the habit of the director's arm. And when he put over this fundamental tendency of his, the technical training incident to the work and honor of a music su pervisor, he retained under it this fas cination for music in its purest and least hampered form, namely for Sym phony and every thing which thereun to appertains. Now Earhart is a man who does not (Continued on Page Eight) Hot Biscuit Are Easily Digested when raised with Rumford.
