Live News From a Large Field
It is both interesting and instruc
tive to note how unceremoniously great
composers handle the material which
they incorporate into their operas. The
old Teutonic legends, with their weird
tales of endless doom, were not adapt
ed to the idea of symmetry, organism
and completeness in a musical master
piece. For example, the original legend
or' the "Flying Dutchman" is a. very
different story from that told in Wag
ner's masterpiece. Originally no ten
der, loyal Senta appears to lift the
heavy sentence from the doomed
Dutchman. It is a harsh, grewsome
story of the sailor who, baffled in his
attempts to round a dangerous promo
tory, cursed the winds and vowed that
he would succeed in his undertaking in
spite of the gods. He drank, swore
and laughed to scorn the fears of his
crew, and when the Holy Ghost came
in visible form to warn him, he shot
at the incarnated spirit. For this he

Fort Snellius Band.
•was condemned to sail the seas eter
nally, to have only red-hot iron for
food and blood for drink; himself «
phantom, captain of a phantom ship,
with a phantom crew. Not only so, but
the very sight of him brought evil to
mariners who might chance to meet
the spectral ship. For would not their
wine all sour and their food all turn to
beans? And, surely, than this there
was nothing worse to a Dutch sailor.
There is no romance in this version
of the legend; not a gleam to relieve
the gloom of the picture. The first ray
ol' light that appears is the treatment
which Heinrich Heine gives the story
In his "Salon," where the condemned
captain is permitted to land once in
seven years; and, if in that time he can
find a maiden who will be faithful unto
death to him, his sentence will be lift
ed. Upon this version Wagner based
his immortal opera. The myth which
was sacred and awe-inspiring to the an
cient mariner, was ruthlessly handled
by these two master minds; and, as n
consequence, the old legend now forms
the foundation of two noble structures,
one of literature, the other of music.
The Fenwick Musical club, of Eden
Valley, had an opening meeting Tues
day. An address by Prof. Fenwick, of
fit. Paul, the originator of the club, a
musical programme, by the club, and
refreshments were the features of the
evening. This club has the distinction
of being a very big, flourishing club in
a very small town.

In the editor's comment upon the se
ries of articles, which Adolph Grethen
has written for the Progress, occurs
these lines which are full of sugges
tion: "Music for the Masses" is Mr.
Grethen's hobby.and for the attainment
Of such an end he advocates a perma
nent symphony orchestra in the Twin
Cities, combined with an everyday,
Wide-open, musical church. He wants
&. union of musical forces in behalf of
the best In musical art. and for the
widest possible beneficence. * * *
However this particular scheme may
be regarded, it cannot be denied that
the net musical art results in the Twin
Cities are insignificant in comparison
with the magniiicent possibilities." I?
not this suggested local federation of
musical energy right in line with the
present movement toward a national
federation, in which the St. Paul musi
cal leaders are particularly interested?

Mine. Sembrich is now on her way to
this country. In company with her
husband and Signor Bevlgnanl, her
musical conductor, she sailed on Thurs
day of last week from Plymouth on
the steamship Normannia. When she
arrives here she will begin rehearsals
for hey operatic concert tour. Her first
appearance >vill be at the Metropolitan
opera house, New York, on Oct. 26, and
at a matinee in the same house on Sat
urday, Oct. 30.
The Paris correspondent of "The
Concert Goer" gives an account of the
grand opera performances there in
August that is worth reproducing.
After speaking of the substitution of
less important singers and orchestral
players for the better-known artists
and taking care to add that the per
formances are always smooth and con
scientious, the writer says:
"Boxholders, who naturally are ab
sent from Paris during the summer,
have formed the miserable habit of
giving their boxes to their provincial
friends — these generally go to Paris
during the vacation and take in~the
opera. If the giving of boxes stopped
here, the effect would not be bad, as
'country cousins' get themselves up in
proper style for the occasion, but un
fortunately many boxholders go fur
ther, and, during their own absence,
give the use of their boxes to their ser
vants. As a result, the Parisian chanc
ing to drop in during a performance
in August enjoys the spectacle of see
ing comfortably installed in the best
'loges' the butlers, valets, maids and
even the cooks, of his friend's house
hold. A protest was raised last year
against the practice of promiscuously
giving the use of 'loges' even by 'lo
cataires,' but, as they are the private
property of the persons occupying them
and have been held for generations
by the same families, it is not practical
to restrict their privileges in regard to
their disposition.
"Another amusing sight Is the tourist,
American or English, and there are
many who, during the summer season,
appear at the opera in outing cos
tumes, while the feminine members
of the family are attired in dark skirts
and Bilk blousee. The only sign of
suitable toilets is the absence of hatfv
This is exacted by the direction of the
theater, otherwise the Parisian would
no doubt be treated to the regulation
snilor hat worn by summer tourists.
The aspect of the opera with rows of
gaily-bedecked maids and valets in the
boxes and simply attired-tourlsts in
the stalls can more easily be imagined
than described."
Curiously enough, the concert season
In New York begins this year with a
musical entertainment, furnished en
tirely by newcomers. The opening
gun was fired Friday night, at the Met
ropolitan opera house, by the Ban<3a
Rcssa di San Severo, an Italian or
ganization of sixty men commanded by
Signor Eugenio Sorrentino. The Ban
da Rossa, or Red Band, is the munici
pal band of the town of San Severo,
and during its fourteen years of exis
tence has won considerable fame, at
least in Italy. It carried off first prize
at the Christoforo Colombo festival at
Genoa in 1592 form sixty-four competi
Accompanying the band as soloists
are Frauleln Margarete yon Vahsel,
soprano, and Carlotta Stubenrauch, a
thirteen-year-old violinist.
The great European Diva, Marcella,
Sembrich, Is to have a concert tour in
the United States this season., and -will
open her engagements at the Metro
politan opera house in New York the
last week in October. She is under
contract with H. M. Hirsehberg, of
New York, who is to take her all the
way to San Francisco. It is ten 3 r ears
since Sembrich made her American
debut, being at that time only in the
commencement of her career. During:
Royal mekes the food pure,
wholesome and delicious.
Absolutely Pure
her last engagement in London, in 1895,
the Times critic took occasion to note
the volume and sympathetic charm
which her voice has gained, and de
plored the fact that Wagner had writ
ten no music for a soprano leggiero;
in fact, he thought that Sembrich
had to sing music which was really
not good enough for her voice. This Is
taking an extremely modern view cf
the situation, for just as long as there
are voices like Sembrich's, the music
of Donnizetti, Bellini, Meyerbeer and
Mozart will be heard and admired.
The music-loving public, despite the
vogue of the Wagner music drama, will
always flock to hear phenomenal sine
ing, and Sembrich is a vocal phenome
non as well as a great artist. Curi
ously enough she is an enthusiastic
Wagnerite. Her traveling support will
include six soloists and an orchestra
of forty musicians.

When the Thompson residence was built
on Dayton's bluff, nearly forty years ago,
it was considered one of the finest homes in
St. Paul, massive in its exterior and ele
gant in all its appointments. It was the
property of J. E. Thompson, who. with his
brother Horace, founded the First National
bank, of St. Paul. Mrs. Thompson took a
great interest in its construction, and, in fact,
looked after many of the little details., so
that everything was of the best. The late J.
D. Pollock was the architect, and the house,
buiit by day labor, cost nearly a round $100,
--000. It was a large three-story building, with
and Vincent make up the corps of contraltos.
For tenors the Parisians will have Alvarez,
Afire, Vnguet, Courtois-Beyle, Raynal, Gau
tier, Duffaut, Cabillot, Laurent and Gallois.

j Maitres Chanteurs." "Briseis" and "Thais"
: will also be given. For the latter opera Maa
j genet is now engaged in writing a new act.
I "Les Maitres Chanteurs," which title sounds
j awkwardly enough to ears accustomed to the
, ruggeder "Meistersinger," has not been per
i formed in France except in Marseilles.

come back and purchase we feel that our goods
& are Right in Style and Price. Our Cloth 4
$ Garments are different from any in the city, and
so are our Fur Garments and Collarettes. We £
have used great care in buying and marked our £
J* goods very close, and we know that anything
happening wrong with any goods bought of us
Swill be cheerfully rectified. A
|H^ you ladies only knew the actual state ot the
Fur and Cloak trade and how little made-up J
goods are on hand; how goods are advanc- W
ing every day, and the actual difficulty of get-
tT ting desirable garments at all, you would attend
xf now to the purchase of your Winter Wrap. In
our opinion November will be a repetition of W
November three years ago, when people almost
& begged to get a cloak (owing to the great strike).
£& b "4w TF\ Garments or Repairs, unless or- J^
1^ m^ dered soon, you may not get till
late December. These are facts,
and while we think our store is THE place for
you to buy or order, you will do well to buy
a somewhere right away. •

It Is Forcaliadowcil by the WeeUly
Bank Statement.
NEW YORK, Oct. 16.— The Financier
says: A feature of the statement of
the Associated Banks of New York, for
the week ending- Oct. 16, that attracts
attention, is the shrinkage in loans. It
is rather difficult to explain the loss,
except on the theory that there has
been a great deal of liquidation in
stock exchange business, and an analy
sis of the items of individual banks
shows that the loan changes in two
large institutions — the National Union
and the National City banks — account
for the differences reported since the
previous week. The effect of the gold
imports is shown in the in
crease of specie. The gain of
legal tenders — the first expansion in
this item since Aug. 28 — seems to show
that the interior movement is nearing
an end. This is not exactly the case,
although the drain during the week has
been less than usual and the treasury
demands have been light. All the gold
imported last week does not figure in
the totals, so that it is reasonable to
suppose that the position of, the banks
so far as cash is concerned, is strong
er than indicated.
The statement points to an easier
money market, in the absence of any
marked activity in speculation, and
the official statements of the national
banks of the United States, as publish
ed last week, showing their strong po
sition with reference to reserves,
strengthen this view. The rising rates
for money abroad and the continued
ease here, foreshadow a situation such
as prevailed last season, with the Unit
ed States sending large amounts to
Europe on sterling bills. The quota
tions for money In New York and Lon
don are undergoing changes which will
raise foreign above domestic rates.
Home money to loan at lowest rates
on good security. No charge for com
mission or exchange. No gold clause.
We give the "on or before" privilege.

Life Bldg., 4th and Minn. Sts.
