THE EARLHAM ORATORIO SO
CIETY'S SPLENDID MUSI
By An Audience Composed of Lov
ers of the Beantifnl in
Music and Art. t (
First M. E. church was the scene
last evening of a brilliant gathering
of society people, the majority of
whom were lovers of the "art de
vine," to be entertained by the Ora
torio society of Earlham college in
the Haydn-Lehmann concei t.
It was 8:15 before the soloists and
chorus took positions before the great
organ, the chorus "presenting a. clas
sic appearance, being attired in caps
and gowns. Prof. C. K. Chase, of
Earlham, directed the chorus, and
Mrs. Clayton B. Hunt presided at the
Prof. Chase's direction was fault
less, having the chorus under com
plete control of his baton, which kept
time with a precision that would have
done credit to one of the masters.
Mrs. Hunt needs no praise here, for
her ability as an organist is so well
known that words are inadequate to
add anything to her already well
The program was in two parts, the
first being Haydn's Third Mass (The
Imperial). When the opening note
of this master piece of music was
intoned there was breathless silence.
The voices in the chorus were so well
trained that it sounded as if one great
voice was singing the sacred melody,
the harmony being almost perfect.
The following parts of the mass were
rendered by soloists and . chorus:
"Kvrie," "Gloria," "Qui Tollis,"
Credo," "Et Incarnatus," "Et Res-'
urexit," "Sanctus," "Benedictus,"
"Agnus Dei" and "Dona," the first
part of the program ending with Hal
The audience showed its apprecia
tion of the rendition of the various
parts by frequent outbursts of ap
plause. The soloists were not given as good
an opportunity to show their well
trained voices in the first part of the
program as they were in the second
part, in the rendition of "In a Per
sian (Harden," a song cycle for four
solo voices. The words wei3 selected
from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
and the music by Liza Lehmann.
Miss Elizabeth Blamere rendered
the soprano parts in charming style.
She has a splendid voice, clear and
Miss Charlotte Callahan, as contral
to, has a sweet voice of great volume.
She is a splendid singer.
The tenor parts were taken by John
Miller. His voice is clear and strong
and sweet, and his presence command
ing. Mr. Edmund Jahn, the bass soloist,
is one of the best ever heard in this
city.' His powerful, yet sweet, soft
voice, filled the vast auditorium. All
were delighted and expressed their
pleasure with long and loud applause.
Mr. Clarence Adler was the piano
accompanist in the rendition of the
Prof. Chase is certainly to be com
mended for the great musical treat
he gave to the people last night.

Representatives of the Wayne coun
ty commissioners arrived in Indian
apolis last night and it is understood
will -close a deal today with the Ma
rion county commissioners for the
transfer of this county's property at
the Soldiers' Home, at Lafayette, to
Wayne county. Some time ago an
appropriation of $10,000 was made
for the erection of a new home to rep
resent Marion county at the Lafayette
Soldiers' home and a few weeks ago
the county commissioners selected the
new site. It was decided to sell the
old home and the price was fixed at
$4,000. An appropriation of this
amount was made by the Wayne
county officials and as soon as it was
known that the old Marion county
home was for sale negotiations were
entered into for its' purchase, which,
it is believed, will be closed today.
The $4,000 received from the sale of
the old home will be made a part of
the original . $10,000 appropriation
made by Marion county.

scholarships to the graduates of the
