FREIDA LEI NER-WOOLEN WEBER. Music Department of Woman's Club Offered One of Worthiest of Its Series Yesterday. A recital of unusual Interest was given by the .Music Department of the* Woman's Club yesterday afternoon 'a j the auditorium of the Y. W. C. A.! Mrs. W. E. Woolenweber is chairman of this ? department, and had charge, of the program, assisted by Mrs. Ben i Morris and Miss Mary Vardy. The program was given as au-j nounced previous to the recital, ex*j ccpt for tlie group of songs by Mrs.: Frank. Carlin. Mrs. Carlin was un-' able to sing because of a very severe cold, which was much regretted. How- : ever. Miss Carrie Brandfass filled her; place on the program very delightful-; iy. Miss Brandfass' voice, a beautiful mezzo soprano, was heard charmingly, in her three songs, in which she was accompanied by Mrs. Edward Stifel. I A reading by Mrs. Jeff Gibbons was. an attractive feature. This was from J the writings of Thomas Bailey Aldrich, : and Mrs. Gibbons took the part, of the three characters in the play, proving her histrionic ability in a marvelous, manner. , ! Miss Katherine Ebbert gave the! only piano solo, which was I he Seller- j y.o by Chopin. This was played ad mirably and. was a most difficult ex ample of the unerring ease and finish which characterizes all Miss Ebbert's , appearances: Another piano number was a duel by Mrs. Erma Beanie Seabright and' Miss Etta Smith. This was the first, : firth and sixth of the Hungarian dances of Brahms. This interpretation did much to acquaint the audience with the fiery spirit of the gypsy rhythm which is synonomous with the Hungarian music, and they were ac-. corded a hearty appreciation. Mrs. May Frye Sinks most exquis itely employed her beautiful contralto j voice in singing three songs. The first. "A Hindoo Chant," the wailing deep' melody of which was splendidly, adapted to her voice range, was by j Bamberg. The second, "My Heart, atj Thy Sweet Voice." was by Saint Saens, j and the third. "Chanson dp Florian," ? by Godard, was a light and airy French ] song with a most charming melody. Mrs. Woolenweber played her accom paniment. The "Sword Dance," by Paderewski, was the opening number on the pro gram, and was given by a sextette: composed of some of the best known singers of the club, Mrs. Robert R. Marshall, Mrs. Edward W. Stifel. Mrs. Don Merriman. Mrs. W. E. Connelly, | Miss Hazel Seamon and Miss Carrie | Brandfass. This was a number of ring- 1 ing musical measures, and from an ar tistic standpoint was one of the most attractive included in the April recital. The afternoon closed with two num bers by the club chorus, under the di rection of Mrs. Elsie Fischer Kinche loe. The first was a composition of Rogers, "The Call," arid the second, "Ashes of Roses." by Woodman. These chorus numbers have aroused j an enthusiastic interest, on the part of the audiences rhis year, anil yester day's program was attended with the usual appreciation. Both numbers j were given with the sympathetic uni son of voices which is making the club chorus one of the outsanding fea tures of the Woman's Club. GOT RID Or RHEUMATISM A. .1. Wnlsh. Sneff'ts.
