GOSSIP ABOUT ODE I0CAL MUSICIANS.
Mr. J. Boyd Duff, in addition to his
activities as a lawyer, a tenor singer and
Secretary of the Mozart Club, has now en
tercd himself as a knijrht of the pencil.
He contribntes the musical column to the
young society weekly on the Southside. A
pood way for his new confreres to welcome
him into the arena would be to break a
lance with him upon the topic discussed in
yesterday's issue of the new paper.
It is only too true, as there claimed, that
many young folks who hare been put under
music teachers never learn to play anything
worth while, and do often become bores.
But it ia a logical non tequilur to say
that, therefore, they possess no musical
talent. An undoubted aoorn may be kept from
prowing into an oak by being deprived or
proper and natural conditions of growth.
Many a musical talent is rained in the same
. More than tfcat, it is no't right to say that
music teaching is a tailure, if it does not
bring the person taught to a point where he or
she can play or sing well enough to entertain
the public or a coterie of friends. That's the
crass, utilitarian spirit that prevails too
widely to-day. Is tho young girl's course
in botany a failure, just because she don't
make a practice of imparting botanical knowl
edge to others? Shall a high school or college
course be accounted wasted time, pimply for
the reason that the graduates do not (could
not, indeed, if they tried) fill their daily con
versation with Latin quotations and habitually
spout learned discourses upon this or that
The value of liberal culture for its own sake,
for the elements it adds to one's own manhood
or womanhood, and without so much reference
to the specific practical use to which it may be
put or how much it will fetch in the market
that is what we Americans need to learn. In
the sphere of music, especially, is this
desideratum felt There are plenty of
performers. What we most need is
listeners of the right kind; persons
wno mace no pretension 01 tecnnicai
proficiency, bnt who look upon music as some
thing more than a mere pastime, who see its
noble, elevatine character, and w ho habitually
take an attitude receptive of all that is lofty,
pure and trne in musical art. The capacity for
Euch musical culture is to be found well-nigh
universally. So should its development be.
Indeed, thedevelopment of snch listeners is an
object for musical study quite as important as
the development of good performers. The
latter are of no more use without the former
than a stereopticon lecture in an asylum for
No course of musical study can rightly be
called a failure if it has given the student an
insight into the meaning of music: if it has
brought him into personil and affectionate
sympathy with its Ideals and madeits lan
guage speak to him as his mother tongue.
Any alleged musical course that does not
bring this result with it is a blank and dismal
failure: all the more so, if it has turned loose
another mechanical performer to prey upon
It is chiefly to supply the need for the dis
semination of musical knowledge among the
non-professional part of the community, that a

The marriage of Miss Belle Reed to Mr. Bye,
of Wilmington, Deb, deprives the Mozart Club
of a contralto whose good voice and gift of
absolute pitch made her a tower of strength in
her department and removes from our general

When they actually establish that Chair of
Music at Yale, the first doctorate under the
new regime should be offered to Dudley Buck
as a graceful recognition of the lesson be
taught that institution in refusing the degree
offered by it some years ago. Even the talk of
a full Professorship of Music is a gratifying
evidence of progress among Ameriaan colleges,
manvnf which withnnt trtvirttr a nlace in thO
faculty to this important department of knowl
edge, have nevertheless presumed to confer de
grees specifically belonging to it.
The foremost of the world's cornetlsts and
the best contralto Pittsburg has sent out will
no doubt draw large audiences in Old City Hall
next Saturday afternoon and evening. At
the matinee, Mr. Levy will play se
lections from "Stabat Mater" and Trova
tore" and Abt's "Cuckoo Song," while
Mrs. Linde (Schaarschmidt) will contribute
"O Mio Fernando" and assist ia several con
certed pieces. For tho evening Mr. Levy has
chosen Sullivan's "Lost Chord," Faure's
"Palm Branches" and tho same "Cackoo
Song:" and Mrs. Lmde will appear in an ana
from 'Le Prophete" and some more duets,
trios, etc. Mrs. Stella Levy, soprano, Mr.

The East Liberty Presbyterian Church has
not engaged a-J2,000 soprano, but it has secured
the popular Haydn Quartet to serve as its

McCausland, Bearl and Wagner are the mem

time been tho precentor ot the church.
The clan is to have the four men
lead the hymns in unison (apian that should
produce good congregational singing) and to
confine their part-singingto the anthems and

Oranges are grown with the best results at an
elevation of 600 to 800 feet above the sea level
and a distance from the coast. The groves are
irrigated and there areno insect pests. Lemons,
figs and olives are cultivated for home con

work will be quite unique as a compendium of
musical iniormauon. is contains a general
history of musio sketched in broad outlines.
There are about half a hundred more or less
extended biographical sketches of prominent
composers (nearly all with excellent portrait
plates) and a somewhat larger number of com
plete pieces, which are, of course, in the
smaller forms, but characteristic of the various
composers. All these pieces and about as
many more are analyzed or, rather, explained
in a popular fashion, eschewing tecnnlcall
ties and giving copious hints as to phrasing,
interpretation, etc. Then there are dictionaries:
one of notable composers and performers; an
other of important musical works, instruments
and institutions, a third of technical terms and
phrases, giving full and clear definitions; and,
fourth, a key to the pronunciation of French,
German and Italian words.
All these features, while in handier shape
than is often seen elsewhere, are designed
especially for non-professional persons, who do
not possess similar sources of information in
There is one feature of the "Manual," how
ever, which is wholly novel and of great con
venience as well to the professed musician as
to the layman interested in the art. This is the
set of a half dozen historical charts which, by
colors, subdivisions and other typographical
means, picture to the eye the principal epochs,
periods, schools and events In the general his
tory of music; the course of development in
varions departments of composition (opera, ora
torio, etc.). and in various instruments and the
works wrfttin for them; and, finallv, the
course of musical events within the various
countries separately. Thce charts must be
examined to be appreciated 'tis really surpris
ing to note the details to wi. ich they extend.
Of much value is it to be ab'e to get so clear
and so comprehensive a bird's-eye view of the
world's musical advancement at any given
period, together with the steps that lead up to
and the developments that immediately fol
lowed the same.
One must perforce echo the sentiment of Mr.
W. S. B. Matthews, the prominent Chicago
critic and author, who has writtea an en
tbnsiasic introduction for the "Manual," clos
ing with this sentence: "That such a work
should be demanded is Indeed an encouraging
sign of the present state ot musical cultivation
in this country '
As was to be expected. New York has gone
wild over Sarasate and d' Albert, doubtless the
greatest pair of musical artists that have come
to this country since Rubinstein and Wieniaw
ski. This is how the "Raconteur," of the
Jttutical Courier, sketches them:
"Eugen d'Albertisastudy. On the street it
is hard to reabze that the little queer, even
quaint figure that suddenly strikes your aston
ished vision is the Old World famous piano
hero and rapidly developing composer.
, "His individuality is as pronounced as Rubin
stein's, while in the matter of attire he far
transcends the great Russian master. Fancy a
preen-gray weather-worn jager coat, tight pan
taloons a mile too short, a weird, third century
(1Vy.Mt' J?K' oddly topped hair, eyes
veiled, but at times intensely ni.r.i- t-
reticent manner, and you havo the picture of
one of the most talented young men in the
"faarasatp is also small, but he is dapper,
graceful, alert, brilliant and winning. A thor
ough man of the world and a consummate
virtuoso. Wieniawski's terse criticism of Sara
sate's playing was 'Superbe main gauche."
If Pittsburg possessed a suitable large music
hall, we might stand a better chance of a visit
from these Dioscuri! of tho present musical
firmament. As it is, however, there are
enough music-lovers willing to pay the higher
prices entailed by a smaller auditorium, to
make it worth while for Mr. Abbey to consider
"Clover," at the Bijou, has been pretty fully
reviewed during the week, but there is room
here for a word of recognition for its musical
merits. Without anywhere attempting to
trench upon the domain of grand opera Von
Buppe displays in this work a skillful
workmanship, a spontaneous flow of mel
ody and a solicitude for dramatic effect
that are far above the stuff that commonly
passes current as light opera. And the singing
or Mr. Eugene Oudm and to a little little less
extent that of Miss Marion Manola, are quite
as far above the vocal efforts common in this
class of work.
If we must have nearly all our opera of the
comic order, and besprinkled with acro
batic funny basness, it as well to have snch
cierer iouvs as ub n oil nopper and the little
Meyers to do it and it is better yet to have a
superintending spirit like Mrs. Cottrelly, whose
artistic instinct forbids the excision of all ro
mance and seriousness, in order to give the
buffoon element the nauseating license it all
too frequently receives.

St. Sampson's Parish Church, Cobo, Guernsey,
the world's champion epitaphian lie. A marble

He was struck by a solid cannon ball weighing
IS pounds, which lodged between the two bones of
one of his lejrs: the wound inflamed considerably,
but, although It was examined by the regimental
eurpeon, tbe presence or a cannon ball was not
noticed until after death, which took place six
hours afterward, when It was extracted, to the
surprise of the whole army.
The man who made the discovery was one
Matthew Crookshank. a hard-headed surgeon,
destitute alike of a sense of humor and a venera
tion of the antique. He has never met with a
leg of physical proportions extensive enough to
receive, stow away and hide from public gaze a
20-pound cannon ball, so he has written to a
medical newspaper indignantly demanding
whether the outrageous falsehood is not ont of
place in the house of God.

A Jury Decides it Is No Crime to Steal on
;SFECUI. TELEOKAM TO T1TE DISFATCn.1
Richmond. "Va., November 23. A remark
able case was disposed of by a jury hero to-day,
in which the decision of the Police Justice was
reversed. Alfred Richardson, a small negro
boy, was sentenced to 30 days by the Police
Justice for stealing an umbrella. His counsel,
Hon. D. C. Richardson, took an appeal to the
Hustings Court Tbe facts were really
against the boy. but bis counsel de
termined to arouse the sympathy of the
iurr. In his speech for tbe defense he con
tended that it would be an outrage to
send anybody to jail for taking an umbrella;
that nobody had ever been jailed for that. He
stated that on one occasion a party cf gentle
men placed an umbrella in the passage before
the dining room of the Bpottswood Hotel, first
anchoring it with a long string. The waiters
were let into the secret, and a watch set. The
result proved that every guest who left tbe
dining room attempted to take the umbrella
with him merchants, lawyers Legislators, all
had it under way when checked by the anchor.
In view of tbe facts the counsel asked an en
lightened jury if it would not be an outrage to
jail a boy for taking an umbrella. Thejurv,
without leaving their seats, brought in a ver
dict of not guilty.

In tho ears, sometimes a roaring, buzzing
sound, or snapping like the report of a pistol,
are caused by catarrh, that exceedingly dis
agreeable and very common disease. Loss of
smell or hearing also results from catarrh.
Hood's Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier, is
a peculiarly successful remedy for catarrh,
which it cures by eradicating from the blood
the impurity which causes and promotes this
disease. Try Hood's Sarsaparilla.
"I used Hood's Sarsaparilla for catarrh, and
received great relief and benefit from it. The
catarrh was very disagreeable, especially in
the winter, causing constant discharge from
my nose, ringing noises in my ears, and pains
in tho back ot my head. The effort to clear
my bead in the morning by hawking and spit

GREED OF GAIN
And Thirst for Pleasure. The ruling passion
of tbe human family. In grasplDjr alter riches
the brain is taxed, the nerrous system strained.
In tbe pursuit of pleasure the body Is tortured
by fashion's despotio sway; tbe hours designed
for repose are devoted to exhausting revelry;
tbe stomach is ruthlessly imposed upon; pure
water, the natural dnnk for all created brings.
Is ignored, and liquid nre -is substituted until,
ere we are aware of it, disease bis fixed its Iron
grasp upon us. Then we look for tbe "remedy."
To tbe victim of tbeie follies, we commend
Dr. Tutt's Liver Pills. They stimulate tbe
liver, strengthen the nerves, restore tbe appe
tite and build up the debilitated body.
