TURNER HALL.
LARGE AND ENTHUSIASTIC AUD-
IENCE LAST NIGHT.
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
