ONE who signs himself "Arion” writes that he cannot agree with the
view 1 take of song. He says:
"Speaking qf the clearness of John McCormack's enunciation you
esv that it is a great pleasure to Be able to obtain from a singer himself
tbs meaning of the words of a song instead of having to guess at their
meaning from the emotions which the notes arouse. I And it just the other
way. I can get more enjoyment out of music when there are no words at
ail. and I know others who regard it the same way as I. 1 was disappolnt
f ftt the stand you take, bocauie I have always agreed with everything
e. you have advanced in your interesting articles, and I hope you will
couio around to my way of thinking in regard to music, too."
First, I desire to thank “Arion” for his flattering general agreement with
what I have been saying in this column. Next, 1 hope he will not be
offended if I tell him that the view which he criticises is not at al! at vari
ance with his own opinion. Perhaps, though, there was some awkward
ness in the manner in which I had expressed myself. What was intended
was that WHEN words accompany a'song it is a pleasure to be able to
get their meaning from the lips of the singer himself instead of having
to flounder about in a Sea of guesses as to wliat the meaning of the words
really is. The source of this pleasure is not so much that the hearer com
prehends the words, as that his attention is not diverted from the music
by the effort involved in guessing.
* » «
LET us pursue this subject ft little fwthor. As far back as mythologic
times there are most extravagant praises bestowed upon music. Us
power to tamo ravages, subjugate brutes apd even attract stones and fas
cinate trees is described in the story of the groat singer whose name ray
critic lias adopted—Arion. Mythology also narrates that unotlicr musician,
/niphion, charmed stones by the magic of his lyre, so that they ranged
themselves together until they formed the mighty wall of the city Thebes.
How Orpheus even silenced the decrees of ftte with his harp ftnd obtained
permission from Pluto himself, the grisly g^d of the nether world, to bring
back to earth his beloved wife Eufidice, is still the theme of great com
posers and you cpn hear the opera commemorating that prehistoric event,
nung frequently at the Metropolitan Opera House.
In nonq of the instances just referred to is there any record of the music
having been accompanied with words. Music alone was the power (hat
wrought all these fabied wonders!
And neither in mythology nor in history is anything so stupendous credit
ed lo the power of human eloquence. For, "Let there be light,” was spoken
by God, and "In the beginning was the Word,” antedates, by a whole etern
t Ity, the ilrst advent of man.
So, my friend "Arion.'1 you see I am fully in accord with you, and
here's thal wo may never again have even the semblance of a falling out!
My beverage is ntilk: wliat's yours. Let's clink glasses!
YV 1I AT i3 the secret of the power of music? We know that nearly every*
' ' body has loved it and been powerfully stirred by it ever since that
pray dawn in which, dimly outlined, stands the cradle of the human race.
Man is primarily a sentient being and only secondarily n thinking one.
Words may pass unnoticed; hut who that is not paralyzed can ignore the
twinge of an aching tooth? That which feels the pain is n6t the Mind, as
is commonly believed, but the Will. The Mind is merely a servant of the
Will; its lantern, as it were, to show it the things that affect the Will. Thus,
If I experience a sudden pain it is the duty of my mind to Ir^orm me whence
th» pain and why, so that I may rid myself of It, and. accordingly my mind
makes me aware of the fact that, for instance, Someone Is standing on my
toe. So, too, if I am agreeably affected, the Mind Is merely the Instrument
that reports to the Will the source of thiB agreeable sensation. JTor, with
out the Mir.d the Will would experience only an indefinable sensation of
pleasure or pain without ever Knowing the catise.
The air vibrations caused by music affect the Will pleasantly or dis
agreeably according to the melodic or unmelodie succession of sounds. The
influence of these sounds is immediate. The sounds require no interpre
tation. Though the Mind, which Is the interpreter, remain silent, the sounds
• produce the result intended by the performer. This is accomplished by the
harmonious commingling of more or less rapid vibrations.
If the vibrations are Inharmonious and stridently jangling they cause a.
positive pain against which the Will revolts; but when the pain is of the
sympathetic sort which springs from slow, harmonious vibrations, produc
ing melody, the Will is agreeably affected despite the mournful nature of
the sound
This, then, is the secret of music. It moves our Will pleasantly, with a
directness like that with which, for instance, candy affects a matinee girl
or whiskey a toper. Hence there liFno more need for words to interprot the
lively, gay or majestically slow or softly sweet sounds which stir the heart
to pleasure or sadness, than there is for words to render candy more sweet
or whiskey more soductive.
But there is this difference botween the pleasure derived from music and
that given by candy or liquor; that as the essence of music consists in its
harmony, the Will which it affects, gradually Is rendered more and more
harmonious with itself and the world and becomes more and more ennobled
and exaited.
* • U
H*13XCK we may judge of the good which such singers as McCormack
accomplish. It is not alone the two hours’ tioklihg of the sense of hear
ing which mokes his singing such a .source of pleasure. It Is the heart and
soul elevating influence which this pleasure brings us that gives McCor
mack’s singing its almost incalculably high value.

With the change, of program for
the last three days of the week at

magic act is brought forward by the
headliner. The name given to the
novelty Is "The Mysterious Evelyn
and the EnChaVited Candlestick.’’ The
feature stunt in the act Is the dis
. ppearance of a woman from the
centre of the stage in n very mys
terious manner. A number of other
clever feats In magic are also per
formed by the magician and his aide.
Another novelty is presented by

yard. They produce music from
everything about the farmyard, the

Grevllle and company, is well re
ceived. Keefe and Both, singers,
mAke a big hit. 'Jones and .Johnson,
"two black dots,” are the real goods,
and have the best fun of ,tlie whole
program. Dynes, a tramp comedian,
is mediocre. De Vnro and Zerneter,
performers on the bars, are all right
In their tine. The motion pictures
are excellent.

jj_' _[I
Guy Maxwell was the brain of Gil
I bert Heade’s architectural establish
ment, but he received exceedingly
small compensation for his work. Nor
did tho fact that his employer was Ilia
wife's uncle have any effect oil his i
pay check. Marlon was a woman of
force and initiative, and when she saw
how her husband's talents were being
taken udvuntugo of by her uncle she
concluded that Ills future ehanoe lay
in another direction. So one day when
he came home, discouraged with his
prospects, she advised ‘‘Give this place
up, Guy. It is foolish for you to sluve
there any longer. You can make a
start for yourself and succeed."
Stimulated by Marion's insistence
and wise advice. Guy acted on her
suggestion and left Mr. Iteadc's estab
lishment. He went into business in
dependently and mado good.
Some three years after Ills inde
pendent beginning he was working
feverishly on planN for the new court
house In order to get them finished
within tho set. time. Marion watched
his work interestedly and was careful
that no home disturbances interfered
with him. Guy's former employer,
Iteadc, was also Interested in winning
the courthouse contract, but he found
his chancos considerably lessened, due
to tho fact that his assistant did not
show the brilliancy or originality of
Guy Maxwell. He was further dis
turbed by the idea that Guy was in
terested In the competition and he
j feared for his own plan In contrast
with that of his clever young rival's.
Five days before the time limit ex
pired, Guy, in investigating some
problems of building, fell down an1
opening in a scaffold and was sert- ]
ously Injured. At home after he was I
bandaged und put to bed his unfln* !
ished plan was the common anxiety
of Marlon and himself.
•Marion wits nor easily aauniea,
however, and as soon ns opportunity
offered she slipped away to the little
suite of offices and set to work malt
ing the final copy of the plan which
was to be submitted In the contest.
When Heade heard of the accident
he resolved on a desperate bit of de
ception. Taking his kodak he went
to the Maxwell home. He announced
that he would wait until Marion re
turned, when told she was out, and
fell Into conversation with the small
daughter, who Was perched on the
piano bench. Soou he asked the child
to show him the little room where
papa worked and she led him to the
studio, where the final draft of the
plan was spread out on the drawing
hoard. He hade the child hold the
sheet up In front of her and he took
a picture of the plan. Then he decid
ed he would not wait for Marlon and
hurried off to his office.
The cloeing day of the contest the
judges met to consider the submit
ted plans. The third one looked at
was Heade's and so exactly suited •
them that they did not bother to ex
amine any of the others.
Marion and Guy eagerly looked for ;
the newspaper account of tho court I
! house decision, where they found Gil
bert Heade announced ns the winner,
' with the picture of the winning plan
an exact duplicate of theirs. Still
Marlon was not crushed. She went
Immediately to Heade’e oflloo, where
she found the assistant alone, and by
feminine cajolery succeeded In secur
ing from him a print of the picture
that had been taken of the plan.
That afternoon Marlon took her
small daughter and made a call on
the court house building committee,
on which Heade was now serving
also. The gentlemen of the commit
tee manifested a skeptical spirit 1
toward her description of her bus- l
band’s plan and her claims on the one ,
accepted. But when she presented
her clinching argument, the picture of 1
the drawing sheet with a child’s
fingers at each corner and a rlbon
bow peeping up at the top, and then
took a sheet lying near and put. In the
child’s hands, duplicating the attl- i
tudo, the opinion of the gentlemen
was altered. Maxwell’s plan was
hunted out and Mr. Hoade hastened
to disappear from eight.
McCormack to Sing from
Deck of Ship “Pinafore”
The management of the New York
HipiKKlromo Is making a special ad
dition to the good ship "Pinafore,"
which Is at present anchored in the
great tank of the big theatre. The .
addition will be In the shape of an ;
extra deck, on which John MoTor- ;
mack will stand next Sunday evening,
when he gives his fifth concert In ;
Greater New York. In a period of five
weeks, an achievement, which, bv the
way, Is without a parallel In the his
tory of concert-giving. Taking into
consideration the concerts given in
Jersey City and Newark, which might j
properly be considered as coming '
within the metropolitan area, and j
three private recitals given in New j
Y'ork wtthln this same period, we can |
form some idea of the extraordinary
popularity of this splendid artist.
Mr. McCormack’s program for next !
Sunday will be one of the best lie has
ever given in New York. The open
ing number will be "Ah! Moon of
Mv Delight,” from “In a Persian
Garden," This Is considered by a
great many people as the most beau
tiful item In Mr. McCormack’s reper
toire. He will also sing tho charming
Poet song from "Da ISoheme,” Schu
bert’s "Ave Murla." "ICleanore," "Has ;
Sorrow Thy Young Days Shaded,”
"She Is Far from the Dand,” "The
Foggy Dew," and for encores he will
sing one or two of Moore's best
known melodies, and, needless to say,
he will, or must, sing such popular |
favorites as "Mother Machree,” "I i
Hear You Calling Me,” "The Next l
Market Day” and "Molly Brannlgun.’
Frank and Roger Hurst and George j
Watts, three Newark boys, are on the
bill at Keeney’s for the last half of
the week, and got a splendid recep- I
t4on from the audience that crowded
that theatre yesterday. The three
Newarkers do a clever song and dance
act, and intersperse the act with a
lot of chatter that Is new and witty.
The McGowan trio, two youths and
a girl, do some fine dancing, tnclud- I
Ing a burlesque on a cabaret enter
tainment. The real bit of the act,
though, is a bedroom scene, where
good dancing is mixed with clean i
comedy and funny antics.
Walter case and company, three i
people, have a unique playlet, which ,
verges on the tragic until it is j
broken up by one of the company sud
denly appearing on the stage as the
“house manager" and ordering the
act stopped.
Another clever act. In which three
people take part, is that Of John i
Woods and company, in which the |
plight of an old minstrel man about 1
to go to the poorhouse Is portrayed.
Sampson and Douglas, a song and \
dance team, made good, as-did Grace j
Doyle In a number of songs. One of 1
the real features of the bill is the j
work of the “Under the Water Mer
maids," two good looking girls, who i
eat and sew while under the wat , as |
well as do all sorts of fancy im- ,
mlng and diving stunts, Calloufte in
a slack wire act, opens the b .. eilhj

beauties, for she was born in Home,
