.- The ensemble numbers were well chosen
for Ibis occasion, and met with an exceed-
inglv hearty response from the audience.
Sveiidsen's Ailepro proved to be a skillfully
constructed movement of a orient and
sparkling character, with frequent episodes
of a delisht ul Norse flavor aud quaint har
monic effects. It was fairly well played,
but not so smoothly, by any means, as
was tlie lovelv. devotional andante cantabile
from Tschatko'wsky's quartet, with its hauntinj;
mielody fur the violin, so elevated In feeling,
and jet so full of tlio plaintive intervals that
voire the ever underlyinc; sadness of tbe
Muscovite ninslc. In tills, as tbroncb
out the preirramme, Mr Rhodes proved
himself to lo tbe artist, par excellence,
or tbe club. "Traeumerei" was a bit broken
ana legless; too much travel imr for peaceful
"dreamerv" that nmht, no doubt. Hut the
dainty little nwvements from Gillet's suite
were gracefully done. In the sons accoinpani
nients the ensemlilo was pretty racced: anil
elsewhere thenoU and second violin would
occasionally be too prominent or tbe 'cello ob
trude itself too murh for perfect balance.
Still the club made it perfectly apparent that
it can do finished and well-balanced playing,
and doubtless would have taken more pains
Lad the occasion been one of greater eclat.

alL Thus hampered she could not 1 expected
to do much with Oounod's brilliantly dramatic
cavatina. La,ter on, in the two trlflinc ballads.
Miss Carpenter sang with no small amount of
spirit and feeling. Mr. Burose's flate solo bad
mure of artistic style and musicianly phrasing
than one is wont to bear from that instrument.
His large technical facility was also amply
shown in the piccolo polka given on encore.
Mr. Louis Bluinenberg, organizer and propri
etor ot tbe club, programmed again tbe same
three pieces that be has played over and over
in the past years. Does not Mr. Bluinenberg
know anything else? The worst or it is that the
pieces are almost wholly destitute of real musi
cal interest, being mainly fancy display
pieces full ol slick tricks and
little else. That Mr. Bluroenbetg can do
better be showed in bis encore selection, the
.charming little Serenade Badine." by Gus
tave Marie, Which "was admirably played
For the Wlenlawski fantasie Bach's air
for tbe G string was substituted by
Sir. Rhodes, who was ill and hardly felt equal
to the brilliant -Fanst" transcription. Maybe
so; but there was certainly no illness apparent
in tbe extraordinarily full and resonant tone or
in tbe broad, free style with which the noble
Bach air was interpreted. Since encores
seemed to be tbe rder of the evening every
one regretted that Mr. Rhodes did not respond
to the entunsiai'ic and persistent applause
that followed this performance. " Here is a vio
linist whom Pittsburg will be glad to bear
again under more favorable circumstances.
Mr. Joseph H. GIttlngs. of course, managed

Happily, tbe rumur that Sarasate and

true. Real music-lovers throughout this sec

round sum in railroad tare and tickets. We

TriE cause of the American composer seems
to be gaining ground. At a meeting held by
the Brooklyn Philharmonic Society the direct
ors decided to devote one of tbe ensuing con
certs to tbe compositions of Americans. The
works of representative native composers, re
siding In tbis country or in Europe, are to be
brought forward and given Impartial rendition.
The wishes of composers are to be consulted,
as far as choice of work is concerned, thereby
giving an opportunity to those represented to
be heard nnder conditions satisfactory to them
selves. Has our Mozart Club forgotten the ex
istence of ye native composer?

Catarrh in the Head
Originates in scrofulous taint in the blood.
Hince the proper method by which to cure
catarrh, is to purify the blood. Its many dis
agreeable symptoms, and the danger of devel
oping into bronchitis or that terribly fatal dis
ease, consumption, are entirely removed by
Hood's Sarsapanlla, which cures catarrh by
purifying the blood; it also tones up the system
and greatly improves tne general health. Try
tbe "peculiar medicine."
For 25' years I have been troubled with
catarrh in the bead, indigestion, and general
debility. Itieverhad faith in such medicines,
butconclnded to try a bottlo of Hood's Sarsa
panlla. It aid me so much good that 1 con

As It seems to be tbe general opinion, and
circulated by some who have their interest
in it, that Mr. Bechtel only keeps German
pianos, we would kindly Inform the public
that he keeps alto a large stock of American
pianos, with the Behr Bros, at the head of
the list and equal to any first-class instru
ment. You will find there American pianos
of all grades and prices. In regard to the
German pianos, would sav that tbe Been
stein grands and 0. Bcheel uprights enjoy a
world's reputation. You have to convince
yourself and see that the art of piano build
ing has not been at a standstill the last 60
years in Europe, These instruments have
fonnd their way into the best families here,
and two Bechstein grands were sold lately
in one week to parties who offered Mr. Bech
tel to refer to them any time. Store open
