When the audience heard the
choral society render "Queen Bather"
many thought, for he al talent Its per
fectness in stage setting, in dramatic
actions and in the musical portrayal
of the different attlttdes and clrrum
stances of the ancient religious char
sclera, could not he excelled. But.
at Uoa Baptist church the
Chant ssthty ntdttsS "Batshassar"
Tuesday night before a crowded con
gregatlon of muulc and art lovers,
even the most skeptical was con
vlnced of the greut musical, dramati
cal. artistic and emotional power of
Denver's Choral society, the foremost
one in the fsr West. So earnestly
did the members of the society play
their part that upon several occasions
the audience could no longer restrain
themselves until they gave vent In
hearty applause, dcmor.strating their
Intense approval of the art and senti
ment shown. There were no delays,
no balks In the scenery nr In the ac
tions of the players, (everything went
oIT Just like clockwork. Once or twice
when the many voices wore showing,
with telling effect, the various musi
cal abadea of the combined Boclety,
the audience seemed to feel ihc mu
steal impulse and catch the inspira
tion and ahow It by quietly assenting
with Involuntary noils and smiles.
"Hall To Belahazxar, the King." the
finale chorus, presented s spectacle
too powerful to be told. The entire
chorus had palms, hailing and wel
coming the king, when they were
making aome very difficult liuerpreta
tlona of the many musical runs. So
great waa this last act that the audi
ence verily stood upon their feet
when the curtain dropped. For indi
vidual work the honors were evenly
deserved by all, yet one ran see the
great improvement of the society
since its addition of many new, sweet
and useful voices. To the accompan
1st, the stage directress and choral
leaders too much praise can not be
given and as shown Tuesday night
their past efforts were thoroughly ap
preciated. Mr. Morgan Jackson did
exceptionally well on that occasion
The people of Denver are certainly
proud of their choral body and will
long for another musical treat.
Miss Lulu Daniels, who died Sun
day at her home on Arapahoe street
of rheumatism of the heart, was
burled Thursday afternoon from
Shorter church, of which she was a
member. The interment was at Fair
mount cemetery. Rev. Dyett was the
officiating minister. The deceased
leaves a mother and two sisters to
mourn her death, with a multitude of
sympathizing friends. She was a lov
able character, cultured, educated. In
dustrious and entirely charming. She
used to he a memlier of the choir of
the church of which she was a mem
ber and was always a good worker.
For a long time she has beeu em
ployed ns clerk In one of the drug
stores and was the main support of
her aged mother. The grim angel has
removed from us a fair flower, and
one that will be long remembered.
Undertaker Gilmore was In charge of
the funeral. The audience room was
filled, even to the gallery and choir
loft. Rev. Dyett was at his best and
preached a most touching sermon on
the life of the deceased. The funeral
was sad, the more so because of the
profuse floral offerings, whleh mutely
protested against the stern summons
of death. Mrs. Bell of Omaha, a sis
ter. was present.

The Western Negro Mat All the Best
of It From An Economical Point
of View.
A comparison of the opportunities
of the East and West for Negroes
gives every reason for encouragement*
to those who have cast their lot west
of the Missouri river. The great bulk
of population lies east. It is true, the
opportunity for business is the great
er where the customers are at hand
in great number, but in unity of atm
and willingness to sacrifice for one
anothers* good, the West is peerless
end supreme. The harder conditions
Five Cents a Copt
that we face has trained us in econ
omy of effort and given us a fuller
knowledge of the value of money. •
