WINNEMUCCA TREATED TO HIGH CLASS MUSIC About ISO friends and neighbors of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Lee responded to an Invitation to Silver State hall Saturday evening to attend a musicale, given in honor of Senator and Mrs. George S. Nixon. Mrs. Cora Hall and Miss Mae Curnow of Reno were guests of Mr. and Mrs. Lee, having stopped over in Win nemucca for a few days. Mrs. Hall and Miss Curnow are en route to Italy to complete their musical education, al ready quite perfect, and Mr. and Mrs. Lee invited them to lend their talents in giving the people of Winnemucca a high-c.ass musical entertainment. Sil ver State ha-1 had been tastefully dec orated for the occasion. Potted p.ants, ma'denhalr ferns and tropical pa ms were everywhere, making the hall a bower of beauty. It is safe to say that the people of Winnemucca never beto.e enjoyed such a classic program of mu sic from the old masters as on Satur day evening. The program opened witn a solo by Mrs. F. M. Lee, “Ah, Tis a lji« mu, uy nilw, auu iu sweetest voice and best style, with Miss Curnow's accompaniment, which was dedcate and hlgh-y finished. The first number was entbus astica.ly rece.v. u and Mrs. Lee responded to an encore. The second number was by Miss Curnow on the piano, aud she executed one of Listzs masterpieces with a skill perhaps never before listened to by a Winne mueca audience. She made the grand o-d instrument just ta k and in a man ner that if there were any present who did not appreciate it It was because • music hath no charms to sooth a sav ge br.ast. ' Mrs. Hail then fol owed with Verdi's arrangement of 'Caro Nome,” fiom Kigoieito. The sympathy between Mrs. Hall's charming voice and Miss Curnow's delicate touch of the piano was very marked uad as soft as eaves fading from the trees and as oweet as nature cabs In the forests. The putter of rain on a roof will sometimes U>1 one to sweet repose, and Mrs. Hah s .rl» s, accompanied by M.ss Curnow s soft notes from ihe piano, will carry one to the "hails of heaven’s sweetest sounds.' The fourth number waa ' Home to the Mountains. ' from Tro vatore,” by the great master Verdi, and given In a duet by Mrs. Hall in soprano and Mrs. Lee In contralto. The.r voices b.ended In such unison, were so sweet and far-reaching, that carried every one who had the pleasure of lis tening. "home to the mountains.” Miss Curnow then executed a difilcu-t classic by Lists that had one not known the music all came from a p ano, brought out by a skilled performer, they could have readliy imug.ned It a voice from the angles.. Tbe gem of the evening was "On tbe Moonlit Stream, by Oeibel, rendered by Mrs. H&ll and Mrs. Lee. Mrs Hall's Japanese love song, by Thomas, was also a very pleas ing number. The musical program end ed with "Recodectlons of Home,” by Mills, and tbe trills and variations by Miss Curnow, the Shver State will ven ture to say, took the charmed company back to “childhoods fireside,” where they dropped a tear on the old hearth stone. The musical program having been completed the guests were Invited to delicate refreshments, served In a room decorated with sweet flowers and pot ted plants, with settings in a beaut.fu shade of red, in keeping witb the high class music and the whole setting one of art and the highest refinement. Af ter refreshments the company enjoyed an hour In social Intercourse, sand wiched in between the waits and two step, and at midnight went to their re spective homes, after an evening spent most charmingly. Winnmucca is Indebted to Mr. and Mrs. Lee for one of the pleasantest evenings ever spent and Senator and Mrs. Nixon were truly honored. Mrs. Hall is going to Italy to study lor the operatic stage and the Silver State predicts that she will return a prima donna that the poepie of the Amelcan continent will pay 910 ta hear Bing, and will get full measure for their money. Miss Curnow will also make heraelf a name that will be on every tongue In every State in the Union, In stead of being confined to the limits of thla commonwealth, as now.
