THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 1883.
Written lor the Sunday Morning B zoo. MY FIRST SWEETHEART. We met in thaA sweet long ago, Young May and "yours so truly ; And after many a heart-wrung sigh, My love was given duly. I almost felt I neVr could live Oue moment from her presence, And thougt t the sunlight dim beside Her blight eyes' irridescence. I sent her flower and madly swore In mauy a gilt-edged sounet. No sweeter nirl than she on earth, Had worn shoe or bonnet. I took her out to ride and walk And sure as I'm a sinner 1 couldn't sleep at night, and oft I went without my diuuer. hated every man I saw Who chanced to come anigh her, And vowed if she should smile on him His fate would be most dire. And then at last one happy day, With aianv -obii"' the btory Was summered forth and I was placed Into a state of glory. She said I was her "dear gacelle,' Her "darltm , dearest ducky And afl I kissed her yie ding lips, I thought myself most lucky. So this went on a month or more, In apite of "pa" or mother ; The sun, we said, wfgbtJail to rise, But wc would love each other. Our's was the very strongest lore, fince loving hud been siarted; We vowed we never more could part, And then of course we parted. And as the other day I saw Her, mairied, fat and greasy ; I laughed aud thought when oue is young, To be a fool 'tis easy. Rosa Pkahlk.

A very interesting piano recital, intermingled with onie very fine essays, was givin at ihec ass rooms on Ohio street of Miss Anna Allen. Hit: well and favorably known musical director-ss of th Uni versity, yesterday afternoon. It was given by the first division ot the das, and the programme was a very excellent one, notwithstanding the fact that owing to a vacation of the University pupils, but a ccmpa ative few of its numbers were given. The first number consisted of a very artisticallv rendered piano solo, entitled "Monastry Bells' bj- Miss Pet Linney. Consi iering the years of the young lady, the solo evinced careful practice, and a commendable flHciency. This was followed by an essay, entitled ' The Life of Joseph Heydn," by Mips Sallie Majors. It was a complete hi tory of the great composer, aud was interesting, not only that it touched upon his two greatest works, the 'Creation" and the -'Twelve Symphon es," but gave the he?rer some idea of the energy and ambi tion which animated his entire existence. A "Sonata," composed by Heydn, was to have rendered dirnttly after the reading of the essay, by Miss Annie Richardnon. but that young lady tailed in being, present. A piano solo, entitled "The Brook," one of Pape's fiue om positions, was rendered by Miss Carrie Crowly, in a manner that would have done credit to a professional. It is un exquisitely nmsi al and harmonious work, and Miss Carrie plays it with an expressive touch which is a deligl t to the liiener's ear. She has been a pupil of MssAUen but a short time, but has made remarkable progiess under her tuition. A "class paper" was also read by Miss Crowley, made up ol miscellaneous mat er re'ative to muie, musical people, etc Her ideas were logically ex pressed, and the paper was listened to with much interest. Piai 6 solo by Mis Sallie Majors, entitled "High land gems," evinced a marked improvement in Miss Sallic's musical education and gave poss biii ties in the time,touch etc,ef a brilliant finale in the future. This closed this pait of the programme, and the class in harmory was then examined. Hie e were but two of the pupils out of the usual num ber six present, but these showed hard ttudy and an ambition to become thorough in all its rules. Taken altogether, the "Class Recital" was a suc cess, and the audience were well entt rtaincd. In this conneciion, however, it may not be amiss to stale that not one of tho directors of the Uaivcr sitv was Dresent, aud thus showed n lamentable interest in that which should touch them nearly and dearly. Miss Alien is a pains-t k ng and con scientious teacher, and her methods have bee met with very marked success in the pi ogress of her pupils. Ssiefety Elsewhere. LKXIKUTON.

Special Corrjesponduuce of tho 15 a zoo. The last two nights of the EmmaLeland company here, the play of ''Hazel Kirke" was presented, ana was wen received Dy all. It is a touching drama, and one that works upon the sympathies of the bearer. The first night this piece was ren- dered-bemg Tuest ay mghtTthe audnon- um was hardly half seated, but the play was produced, and had sucj. a good effect I upon those present that the last night the house was crowded to overflowing, there not being enough seats to accommodate all who wished to attend and many were turn- ed away with heavy hearts and sighs o! disappointment. The opera house, unlike the former one, on the next morning aftei the last play, still stands in all its pomp, pride and grandeur, ?s a fit temple for the muses, and long may it continue to stand. jyjav us owner long live to see tne young and gay enjoy themselves and, also, may he be one of the participants in tbe same , 1 . 1 musical avd dramatic. One of the most enjoyable features of the opening of Moore s opera house was the music furnished by the Nevada or chestra. It is seldom that orchestras out side of our larger cities are capable of ren dering classical overtures, as well as the gems of the ball room, as they were given by this organization. Nevada enjoys an enviable reputation as a music center, and we think they may be lustiv proud of their orchestra. It is com posed of the following members, under the direction of Prof. E. A. Phelps, first violin- is:, Frank Allen, secona violinist, S. J. Sei- fri?d, clarionet. John . Cock- erell, cornet aud T. B. Harrison, dobule bass.
