Sehu-mann-IIeink, recently, says: "To commence with Mme. Schu-mann-IIeink has really a majestic voice, and her command of it is well nigh perfect as her flawless execu tion of the two octave jump in the famous 'Brindisi' proves. In all pas sages that lie between the natural range of her voice her emission is smooth, sonorous and productive of unfailing beauty of tone. Her phras ing is almost invariably . the perfec tion of art and enunciation of the text shows a perfect command of vo calization. These features of her method enable her to sing such things as the 'Brindisi' area with all the beauty of olor ever imparted to it by an Italian singer, while with her keen intelligence, her glowing temperament, her subtle humor and her winsome personality enables her to fill the hollow melody with a wealth of vitality, unequaled by any other singer now before the public. She is gifted with true artistic tem perament. This great artist is now making her "fare. veil" concert tour in America and she is engaged to give a recital here on Thursday evening, February 1Kb at the Coliseum. Though this concert is announced as her "farewell' it does not mean that she is to retire from the stage, but in the future is to devote her time to opera solelv. , .

HURLED FIFTY FEET Mr. Wolff, the Victim, Was a Par mer, About Sixty-Five Years of Age. A very shocking accident was wit nessed yesterday morning by the passengers on No. 14, which, leaves here for New York at 9:50 a. m. Near Air Hill, about thirty-five miles from here, the train struck and killed Mr. Henry Wolff, a farmer about sixty-five years old. Mr. Wolff is very deaf and did not hear the train coming. He was walking with his head down against the Avind and his hat pulled low over his eyes and the train, suddenly rounding a curve, struck him full and hurled him fifty feet in the air. Every bone in the man's body was broken. He was lift ed into the train and carried to Day ton, where the train coroner held an inquest over the dead body. No. 14 was an hour late and was striving to make up the lost time, and the engineer, on account of the curve, was not able to apply the brakes soon enough to prevent hitting the man. TO SELL OUT His Stock and Retire From Business. (Special to Palladium.) Cambridge City, Ind., Jan. 30. S. B. Fisher, one of our worthy business men will soon have a closing out sale of his stock of shoes. Mr. Fisher came here from Dublin in 1872, accepting a position as clerk in Frank Mat Us' shoe store. In 1874 Mr. Fisher began working as repair man in the shoe store of S. L. Wheeler. He worked there a few months then he and Mr. WTheeler went into partenrship. In 18S2 the partnership was mutually dissolved and each began business for himself. Mr. Fisher occupied the building now used as J. W. Marson's furni ture department until 1900. Since then he has occupied the new building of C. T. Wright. By his genial ways he occupied. By his genial ways he has won many friends, and the public regrets very much to lose him. It is hoped that Mr. Fisher will remain in Cambridge City and will still be an active business man as heretofore. GREAT INTEREST TAKEN IN THE APPROACHING CONCERT. DIRECTION PROF. CHASE A Complete Performance of Haydn's Famous Imperial Mass, to In clude "Inflammatus." Great interest is being felt in col lege and musical circles in the ap proaching concert of the Earlharn Oratorio society, which is set for sometime about the middle of March. It is expected by the director of the chorus, Prof. Chase, that the stand ard set by the rendition last 3ear of "The Creation" will be equaled, if not surpassed, by the work of this year. Last year the management wras fortunate in securing some of the best soloists in the United States and it is believed that the quartet of singers brought to Richmond this 3ear will insure even better results. The main feature of the program will be a complete performance of Haydn's famous Imperial Mass; this is considered by musicians to stand among the very first of the great re ligious choral compositions and a sat isfactory rendition of it is an event. The second part of the program will include the "Inflammatus" from Rossini's Stabat Mater, by Miss Blamere, of Chicago, and the chorus, and the "Sanctus" from Gounod's Messe Sollemnelle, containing one of the finest arrangements for tenor solo and chorus ever written; each one of the soloists will, have an. opportunity in this half of the program to be heard in some great aria. The exact time of the concert will be announced within a couple of days, but the date, is set early so as not to conflict with the performances of the May Festival chorus. This concert by the Earlharn society is coming to be looked upon as an annual event and "much enthusiasm is shown among the members of the chorus, which un doubtedly surpasses that of last year.
