Grcnt Success of the Beethoven and Mendelssohn Singing soci eties, the Quartette Club. Turner hall last evening was taxed to Its utmost limit to aocommodato the vast audience that assembled to hear the tlrst concert of tho Mendelssohn Singing association and the Beethoven Maenner chor, a great number of people being compelled to stand during tho whole entertainment. The appearance of the grand orches tra and their conductor, 1'rof. Carl Beck, was the signal for a round of applause, which was again heard at the conclu sion of the overture, the well k nown "Fra Dlavolo" being the one selected, lhls waa briskly rendered and showed the good work 1'rof. Carl Beck has been doing since his ad vent In our city. Jensen's "Adonlt felcr," consisting of chorus, soil and orchestra was rendered by the Men delssohn Singing association. In the soli the fresh voice of Mies Schleunlng told with good efleot. This appears rather a difficult composition, butby the energies of the Indefatigable, conduotor It was satisfactorily rendered. Tho Now Or leans Quartette cluV, who next made their appearance, were greeted In a most flattering manner. The club consists of 10 male voices, four tenors and six baBsl. Its leader Is I'rofessorL. Ilanno Dieter, who possesses a basa voice of line quali ty. The unaccompanied selection they rendered was exquisite, the degree of light and shade they havo obtained can only bo the result of constant practice. The audience were ravished, and a whirlwind of applause went round the house. The unanimous desire of the audience for an encore was responded to by the slngtng of "Helm I.lebchen Zu Haus." The well-established Beethoven Maennerchor next favored the audience with Tchlrch's "ANIght On the Ocean," being accompanied by the orchestra. The rendition of this cantata occupied some little time and In every way the Maennerchor may be congratulated on the successful mannei In which they sang It. The solo for tho Captain and the Mate were undertaken by Captain Karber and Protestor Halbedl and In their bands no point was lost. The overture at the commencement of the second part was again taken from Au ber's works, for the sprightly airs from "l.e Cheval de Bronze" were eoon ringing through the hall. Professor Carl Beck hs Infused his orchestra with that mag netism which was mentioned an being so particularly a strong point on the Sentleman's appearance at the late luslo Festival. At the conclusion of the overture the New Orleans Quartette Club rendered their second selection, which waa marked with all that finish observable In their first. Again the calls of encore were loud nml strong and tho plaudits compelled them to reappear. In the selection given for the encore they excelled themselves, their lovely volcea blending Into a beautiful harmony, un til the sound died away murmurlngly In the veriest whisper. The applause at the conclusion was deafening, and It waa thoroughly well deserved. The Men delssohn association then gave "The Happy One" (Mendellsohn) very uierlt Itorlously. The next Item was the singing of Beethoven's "Die Illmmel Huehmen des Kwlngen Khre" hy tho New Orleans Quartette club and Beethoven Micnnor chor. This, too, was satisfactorily per formed. At the end of tbla a presenta tion of a magnificent silver drinking cup -was made to tho Quartette Club by the Singing association, Captain Karber, with n few appropriate remarka per forming the ceremony of presentation. This enjoyable and Intellectual even ing's entertainment concluded with Kuntze's Wine Galop by the Beethoven Micnnerchor. In conclusion, San Antonio may felic itate herself at having such a musician In her midst aa Carl Beck, and under hla baton neither the Beethoven Mtcnner chort the Mendelssohn Singing society, nor the Orchestral soclety,wlll ilnd their well earned laurels of last night fade. AN ALLEGED FAITH CURE. Restored to Health-The Laying; on of Hands. Mra. Mary K. Douglass, age thirty-live, living at 174 Camden, street, Newark, Is a widow who np to last Wednesday was a bedridden orlpple for more than eight years. She bad curvature of the spine, and her body was bent nearly double. Her spine was so sensitive that she oould not bear the touch of a hand, She also suffered constantly from a rag ing headache, and she could take little ustenanoe, Mra. Douglass Is now ai parently well and hearty, she walks erect with straight spine, her headache has entirely disappeared, and she eats with good appetite. Mra. Douglass attributes her remarkable recovery to the "faith oure," and her statements are corroborated by friends and physi cians. She had been told by the latter that her oase was hopeless, and that she would never walk erect again. When out of her bed the was compelled to drag her bent and paralyzed legs along The floor by crawling on her hands. Mrs. Douglass says: "I had been con fined to my bed since Christmas day eight years ago. My left hip had been drawn out of place and my leg was shortened. My anklea were so twisted that my feet were turned out of place. 1 could stlok a pin In my flesh there without feeling It.' During the past two veara and a half I had ulceration of the stomach and abscesses till the coating of my, tioraacn waa nearly oesiroyeu. I also lost my voice, and oould, enunciate with difficulty." ' On last Wednesday evening Mrs. Douglass arose front her bed and 'walked, to the' amazajuent .of all her friends. She had been talked ! to about Iho faith oure, but hart no belief In It. On that day the llev. Dr. Sanford and Mra. Baldwin, who prac tice the faith cure, accompanied by C . 0. Lathrop, visited the home and talked to her aa she lay In bed. A passage Irom the Bible waa read to her. and alter aome religious conversation. Dr. Sanford knelt beside the bed and laid ono hand on her forehead. Mrs. Baldwin knelt on the opposite tide of the bed, and took her other hand and placed one of her hands on me nauenrs spine, mow me nanus on iuo mucin a "V; visltora prayed earnestly. "The pain seemed to leave me," said Mrs. Uoug- lass, yesterday. Dr. Sanford then re- Iireu irom lue room, mini iw was asked to get up. After some hesitation she made the effort, and atood upon her feet. Dr. Sanford was called In and additional prayers were said that her limb might be straight ened. "I felt my foot slip Into place and planted It on the floor. Then 1 be gan to have faith, and walked about the room. " Mrs. Douglass was visited yesterday by a number of friends who expressed their astonishment at her cure. Sho walked about the room and appeared to have as much physical strength as the ordinary woman. One Friday she took an airing In the carriage of Dr. Ella Lin, nn.l nulled iinn ii friends. Dr. Banfurd and Mrs. Baldwin aro credited with a number of remarkablo cures through the operation of Faith, New York Tribune. IN ELEGANT STYLE. The Sunsets Win a Decided Victo ry Over tho calvestons. The game of base ball yesterday after noon was the best that has been played In this city, and tho Sunsets won by n score of seven to four for the Oalvestons. The main features of the game was McKale's batting and McCorinlok work at second base. Both clubs played for all they were worth, and the fact the Sunsets won was greatly to their oredlt. Flanders, the pitcher for the Sunsets Is an excellent man, and his good work gave the San Antonio nine a decided advantage. After tbo filth Inning his arm commenced to swell greatly, but he was rubbed down with whiskey, and pitched the entire game out, notwith standing he vfli In great pain. At the commencement of the game the odds was In favor of the Oalvestons, but after the boys of the Sunsets made four runs In the 'third Inning a good many betters hedged, and got some of their money back after the game was completed. At one time there was some dissatis faction expressed at the decision of the umpire," but It was uncalled for, and taking the three games through, there could not have been fairer decisions made than were rendered by Mr.Elwood.

BASE BALL NOTES. What Is Being Said and Done in Diamond Circles. The Galveston management express their entire satisfaction with their trip to San Antonio, and state that they have had kind treatment uniformly, from their opponent! and the citizens of San Antonio generally. They acknowl- edge that the Sunsets heat them fairly and squarely, and that they hare noth ing to kick about. On the contrary they were treated better, and had fairer de cisions than ever before. We have this from Manager Kaston, of tho Calves tons, who taya that ho will see that due and proper credit Is given our club by the press of the State. Mr. Kaston also requests tho I.wiit reporter. In behalf of the Oalveaton club, to express their thankato the proprietors of the White thanks to the proprietors or tne i line Klrpliant saloon for their kind and thoughtful entertainment thla forenoon. In Dili Inatanrn wn mar mention that McKale, the excellent short stop of the Sunsets, has been called lo Galveston by a telegram stating that his sister is very III, and It Is not known whether ho will return or not. If he docs not It will weaken tho home club, as he has developed excellent qualities for tbo po sition he ocoupled. We might also mention that ICcId the left fielder for the Oalvestons, has sign ed with the Sunset, anil will in miure play with them. If McKale does not come back It will be a loss, but the loss win be recovered by tne acquisition oi Held, and another player the Sunsets are expecting. En passant, we win siaie, tuai me Galveston boys, who are base ball play ers, say that the San Antonio club, as at present composed, need not be afraid to go anywhere, or tackle any club.
