HAS A RICH VOICE 3HISS HAHX'S SINGING AT PARK CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH AX ARTISTIC TREAT GOOD QUAIITY; EVEN RANGE Former St. rnul Girl Is Given an Enthusiastic Reception—Sup porting Talent Was Un usually Good. The development of a beautiful voice is a slow process. It is intimately connect ed with the development of heart and brain of the s*»ger and as the life is colored with the big experiences that come to it, so the voice gains in depth and breadth and rich coloring. Miss Hahn. the young soprano, who delighted ali who heard her last night at the Park Congregational church, possesses a voice that is even more interesting because of its possibilities than because of what it has already accomplished. It is a big voice and a dramatic voice, remarkably even in range and exquisite in quality. Its owner is quickly responsive to the demands made by the composers she in terprets and this responsiveness' gives to the voice an expressiveness that is es sentially dramatic. It would seem safe to prophesy for the singer a future on the dramatic stage. In a Frenchy little gown of pink and blue, her arms filled with flowers pre sented to her by old acquaintances—for Miss Hahn was once a St. Paul girl she made a charming stage appearance. The faults of her voice are the faults of immaturity. Not yet has Miss Hahn learned complete self-control. Doubtless it was nervousness last night that caused the singer to reveal a lack of repose and several uistressing little mannerisms that detracted from the beauty of her voice. Miss Hahn was unfortunate, too, in the choice of her first number, the aria, "Dich theure Halle," from "Tannhauser." It was a big thing to begin on when a singer has not complete control of her voice. It was rather a big thing anyway, for po young a singer. In the "Mignon" sor.g, Thomas, which followed, the sing er revealed for the first time the beauties of her voice, especially its expressive quality. The good impression made In this song was the beginning of a pro gramme that ended in a very triumphant climax for Miss Hahn and whicn aroused the enthusiasm of the audience. The re maining numbers were: "Und Wieder Bluht der Lindenbaum," Ritt; "Schuh macherlied," Weingartner; and the aria from "Jeanne d'Arc," TschaiKowsky. Miss Minnie Bergh was a most satis factory accompanist. Arthur Bergh played several violin EGG SAIAD. FINGER ROLLS. ■.■,■.■ ■■■■.■ :■-; ■■ ■■ . .v.v ...' .

The poorest girls in the world, it is believed, are those who are not taught to work. And the sad part about it is that there are thousands of them. Rich par ents have petted them ,and they have been taught to despise labor and to de pend upon others for a living, and are perfectly helpless. It is the duty of par ents to protect their daughters from Jhe (jlobe's Daily Short Jtory Copyright, 1902, by Daily Story Pub. C o . Six o'clock! and as the mill bell an nounced the fact the whir and clang of machinery died away and was succeed ed ky the shouts of small boys who came trooping from the doors of the great fac tory. Soon a wide stream of humanity was surging toward the entrance gates. Following the boys came the young men with long strides, and after them the women and girls and great mass of oper atives, and, lastly, hobbling along with the aid of canes, the veterans of the mill—men and women who had almost outlived their usefulness, but who were still kept on the pay roll of the com pany. A few minutes, and the smoke hover ing over the red chimney lost itself In the clouds, the night watchman came out with his lantern, the gates were clos ed and another day's work was finished. For all but the bookkeeper. In his office he still bent over long columns of figures. Up and down, up and down his fingers moved until at last he raised his head wearily. It was too dark to see. Taking his hat from its nail in the cor ner he made a movement toward the door, but instead of going out he sudden ly raised his hand to his chest with a low gasp of pain. For a moment he groped blindly for a chair, then sank the floor. Half an hour later he rose slowly and went out, carefully locking the door behind him. As he went down the steps he looked like an old man, his figure was so bent. But gradually his walk grew firmer, and by the time he had reached the little house at the end of the village he had regained his cus tomary upright carriage. "You are late, Felix," said a com plaining voice as he entered the small sitting room; "tea has been waiting near ly an hour." "Yes, mother, I know,", he answered, as he stooped and kissed her wrinkled forehead; "but 1 could not possibly get away sooner. There is a press of work at the office, and—" , But the thin hands were raised appeal ingly. "Spare me, Felix! Your father never used to speak about business. That was left to the agent. If he had lived we would never have come to this," and she glanced about the bare room piteously. "Poor little mother," his voice was very tender as he rested his hand for a mo ment on her gray hair. "It is hard, but perhaps it will be all right sometime." Something in his voice caused her lips to tremble a little. "I do not mean to be cross, Felix," she said, wistfully, "but everything is so different. Your father should have left a man in charge of the property. You are not to blame. You were only a boy, and" did what you thought was best." He had heard the complaint many times before, but he answered simply: "Yes, mother, I have done what I thought was best." At this moment a tall, fair girl entered the room. "Come, Felix," she said, brightly. "I shall not wait any longer. You must eat supper so I can wash the dishes. After that you and I can take a walk down by the canal. I want to talk." "A reasonable want," he laughed, as he followed her Into the dining room. Except in age they were very much alike, this brother and sister; tall and fair, with warm eyes and quick", sunny smiles. Only about the temples of the young man—he was not yet forty—the brown hair was beginning tor turn. While he was eating- the girl watched him anxiously. Suddenly she broke out with: "I spent the afternoon with Dr. Breen's wife." "Yes?" "And—and she said that her husband had been talking about you—that you ought to leave the office." "Yes, •he told me something to that effect nearly a year ago, and I believe has mentioned it several times since."

Then he added whimsically: "I have arranged for a grand spree in August. Harry and Bess will be home from school and the four of us will go for a month's jollification among the Maine lakes'. Aunt Betty will come and stay with mother." For a moment she looked at him to see if he were in earru-set, then, in spite of her twenty-two years, promptly mounted a chair and whirled a napkin above her head. Then she indulged in an energetic pantomime of a warwhoop. Felix watched lire appreciatively. "That's the way 1 feel," he said. "The mere thought of a vacation after fifte-n years of office work is like a tonic. Now suppose I help you with the dishes, and then we will go out and let you' fre<> yourself of the 'talk.' " "Felix," she said a little later, as they were walking along the canal. "Dr. Breen's cousin arrived from Denver to day. He said he would call on you soon, and seemed very much surprised to learn that you were only a bookkeeper. He said that you had been one of the brilliant men at college and that great things had been expected from you." Felix laughed a little. "Bob was my classmate," he said, "and naturally oversanguine about his friend. It is the brilliant men who usually make failures." He spoke lightly, but something in his voice caused her to draw nearer. "Felix," she said, after a long pause, "I want you to tell me all about papa's affairs. We were mere babies when he died and you came home from college to look after things. But Harry and B-ss and I are now old enough to take our share of the burden. It is our right to know." She spoke earnestly and as they reach ed a belt of moonlight looked up into his face. It was very grave. "Father was careless," he said, "noth ing more. We will not speak about him. The rest is very simple. I got a po sition as bookkeeper and-that is all."' They walked on awhile in silence. Then she said: "You have not told me all, Felix. Something has been troubling you all these years. I have felt it ever since I was old enough to observe. You have a good salary, and make as much more by your magazine articles, and yet you never indulge yourself in anything. Mam ma's talk used to make me think that papa had left considerable property, and Harry and Bess and I always thought that our school money came out of thiaf But lately I have doubted it." Then, ab ruptly: "Did papa leave anything—above his debts, I mean?" "No." "And—was there enough to pay his debts?" "No." "I suspected it. Now, Felix," speaking firmly, and letting her hand rest caress ingly on his arm, "you must be open with me. I am a woman now, and want to be a help instead of a burden. Harry and Bess will graduate next month, and they feel just as I do. Papa's debts must be paid, and it will be so much easier for the four of us. working to gether than for you alone " Then, he<*' tatingly: ' . <« "Is it very much?"' "No," smiling 1.

"But—l did not know that you took any interest in politics?"' she said, he voice trembling with eagerness and wonder. "Nor have I—much," he replied grave ly. "I never dreamed of such a thin^r until I was approached on the subject. 1 thought my ambition was dead, but it seems I was mistaken. I felt almost frightened at the tumult the possibility awoke in me. And it pleases you, t<>.'., Margaret?" he asked, after a moment's siience. "Moiv than I can tell," she replied with a glad light in her eyes. "I have felt worried about you lately.
