The roll call held last Wednesday
evening in the Green Ridge Presby
terian church was one of the most en
thusiastic sessions known in the his
tory of the organization. Cards were
prepared by the session, which com

A decade ngo this church only num
bered ninety-two, when it called Rev,
N. F. Stahl to be its pastor. The past
ten years have been years of prosperity,
and the service of last Wednesday
evening will enthuse the leaders of this
active church to greater activity and
usefulness. The immediate result is
greater familiarity among the members
and Increased attendance at divine ser
vices. It was the best possible means
of bringing into closer touch the 500
, Young Women's Work,
The annual convention of the Young
Women's Christian association of our
state Is now being held in our city. The
delegates in town represent thirty or
ganizations in various cities; encourag
Ing reports are read, the work in all
Its branches Is discussed and planB for
future aggressiveness are being laid.
This branch of Christian activity has
not been very widely advertised, but
with the co-operation of the pastors of
our city and the able addresses of wo
men consecrated to this work, the pub
lic will be well Informed as to the re-
suits achieved in many large cities by
the Young Women's Christian associa
tlon. At the request of the executive
committee of the state organization,
our pastors will preach a sermon in to
morrow's morning or evening service
on the work done by this association;
and In many of the pulpits of the city
women who have long been identified
with the work will speak
, The rooms of our local organization
are on wasnington avenue, and a
branch has been established at 1019
Cedar avenue. In the central organlza
tlon on Washington avenue very pleas
ant rooms have been engaged, which
are on the second and third floors. The
work Is in charge of Miss McCurdy,
and her success during the last month
was very great. Eighty new members
have Joined the evening classes, where
all the common branches are taught.
One hundred and fifty members are en
roiiea in tne gymnasium. At noon
every day, young women employed In
stores and factories are welcomed to
the rooms, where refreshments are
served at populur prices, and during
the hour divine service Is conducted.
to which the young women are invited.
At 3.45 each Sunday afternoon about
seventy young women assemble for
worship In the prayer meeting room.
Four Bible classes have been recently
organized, and sixty members have
Joined. The work is in a very prosper
ous condition. The state sonventlon.
now in session, will undoubtedly give
the work in our city greater promin
ence and enlarge its sphere of Influence.
A Prosperous Pastor.
i ' Last Sunday evening the North Main
Avenue Baptist church was beautifully
decorated by Mrs. William Chappell's
Sunday school class, with potted plants.
They were aided by G. L. Clark and
John Hill. It was the occasion of the
Anniversary exercises, and the pastor.
Rev. W. G. Watklns, delivered the ser
mon. In the course of the evening's
address, Mr; Watklns stated that the
membership In 1891, when he first took
charge, was 125. During his first year
130 were added. At the close of the
year he resigned, and during 1892 many
of the members were scattered and the
church in an apathetic condition. He
again took charge in 1893, and during
the laBt year fifty have been added to
the membership. The debt on the
church, when he first took charge, was
ju.ew. This indebtedness has been
cancelled and the building Is now free
of all Incumbrances. During the even
ing the choir, which was organized and
conducted by the pastor, rendered ex
cellent music. The Sunday school is in
a flourishing condition under the super
vision of Charles Henwood. The out
look of this young church is very hope
ful, and both pastor and people are do
Ing excellent work.
First Polish Church.
In the Electric City park, In the
ftorth End, directly fronting Main ave
nue, excavators are busily working,
preparing the ground for the founda
tlon .of the First Polish church in the
city. The church has been worship
ing in a hired hall, and lately pur
chased three lots, fronting Main avenue
and located in a very pleasant part of
this growing section of our city. The
persons who dig the foundation are
members of the church and give their
labor gratuitously. They are there
every fine day and work with a will un.
der the supervision of their priest, and
Soon the foundation will be laid. The
proposed building will be of stone and
will be one 115 feet long and 67. feet wide.
When completed, it will be an imposing
structure and rival anything In church
architecture in our city. It will not be
completed at present. The intention Is
to build a commodious basement as
oon as possible and occupy it this win
ter. Then a church fund will be estab
lished, and when a sufficient sum is se
cured to guarantee the completion of
the edifice, the superstructure will be
erected. The expenditure of thousands
of dollars on such a church building im
plies that this people have come here

Robert T. Black, who is sojourning
in Paris, writes there is no music in
the owellest theaters in Paris and tre
mendous waits between acts, never out
before midnight: but the acting Is so
perfect that there Is nothing left to be
desired. Last Sunday he went to the
Russian church. The service was In
teresting and beautiful and the church
very beautifully and gorgeously decor
ated. The building is small, but as
there are no seats it accommodates
lots of people. It was the first time he
had ever heard Russian. The music
there is particularly fine and is more
prominent than even in the Catholic
church. The following is an extract
from an English Joufnal showing the
wonderful powers of endurance of
Henry Berg, pianist. He has a great
reputation. Mr. Black had the
pleasure of listening to a por
tlon of the thirty-hour recital
given by Herr Berg: Consider
able interest has been caused during
the past week by the thirty-hour piano
forte recital, which Merr Henry Berg
unuertook to give on Friday ana Satur
day at the Aquarium. Punctually at
4 p. m. on Friday, the "Iron pianist'
took his seat at the Brlnsmead piano
upon which, for thirty consecutive
hours, he has to perform a series of
compositions, ranging from Bach's
fugues and Beethoven's sonatas to a
popular air. Throughout the night the
performer was watched by a committee
of Journalists and musicians, and their
signed report declares that never once
did Berg ceaae from playing according
to his contract. Towards the early
morning the performer felt consider
able pain In his left arm, but after
awhile the trouble passed away. To
wards the conclusion of the recital, the
concert hall filled up, and during tho
last hour considerable enthusiasm was
shown. At 10 o'clock Berg broke Into
a galop, and on concluding with "Uod
Save the Queen," received quite an
ovation. Herr Berg proposes to repeat
his feat on Friday and Saturday next,
increasing the time by one hour, and
should he be successful, will, during
the following week, work his time up
to thirty-Bix hours.

Quite a wordy war has been going on
in Europe between Leoncavallo, author
of "I Pagllaccl," and Catulle Mendes,
author of the novel, "Le Femme de Ta-
barln." Mendts haa accused Leoncav
allo of literary piracy In taking the sub
ject of the opera from the novel. Leon
cavallo, besides denying the charge.
retorts by saying that Mendes' novel Is
altogether too much like the "Dram-
ma Nuovo," which dates back to 1830.
Whatever way these charges may
terminate, the discussion brings Into
prominence two men already very well
known in their respective departments.
Leoncavallo became famous through
his "I Pagllaccl," He has been as much
talked of as "Mascagnl. His recent
work "Medici" Is arousing a great deal
of interest, and it will probably be
heard in this country this season. Ca-
aulle Mendes, although an author, has
been connected with music and must
clans for years. He wrote the libretto
for "Gwendoline," the opera by the
famous Chabrler, who died recently In
Paris. He is also known as the fasci
nating gentleman for whom AugUBta
Holmes, now so celebrated as a woman
composer, ignored social restrictions,
and, as usual, she was deserted by the
same deceptive Catulle. The charges
of literary piracy are difficult to settle,
We are told, says the Buffalo News,
that there is "nothing new under the
sun?' so it may eventually settle down

Tallle Morgan Is busy at work on the
Musical Director, which will appear
this month. The book will be finely
gotten up, with colored cover and trim
med edges, and will have from twenty
to thirty-four pages each issue.
"The Princess Bonnie" at the Acad
emy of Music next week will no doubt
attract large audiences. "The Prineess
Bonnie" Is Wlllard Spenser's latest pro
ductlon In the operatic line, and has
mong the treasures in Johann
Strauss' house Is a fan containing com
plimentary autographs of dozens of
eminent men, including Rubinstein,
Gounod, Bolta, Dellbes, Joachim, Gold-
mark, etc. Brahms copied on It the
first few bars of the "Blue Danube
Walts," and wrote below, "unluckily
not by Brahms." Among the notabili
ties who send autographic messages of
congratulation to Strauss during the
jubilee were Massenet, Daudet, Sardou
and Jokal. Concerning Strauss' new
operetta, "Jabuka," which was pro
duced during the jubilee, the general
opinion is that it is the best thing he
has written for some years, combining
in its best numbers "the freshness of
youth with the subtle refinement of
age." A ! quartette in the last act is
suid to be of such entrancing beauty
that it would alone ensure the suc
cess of the new operetta. Servian local
color Is freely used In the music, while
the Vienna waltz Is kept In the back
ground. Strauss has, as one critic
says, "thrown over-board worn-out
formulae, and raised the operetta, the
stepchild of the grand opera, to a
level where it cannot be distinguished
from genuine comic opera." Of the
orchestration, Hansllck says that "it Is
so beautiful that one cannot become
satiated. What wondrous accords of
harps, pizzicato violins, flutes and soft
violin passages, like silver threads
woven through the score!"

The success and artistic strides made
by Mme. Nordlca during the last year
have been remarkable in the extreme.
She is today probably one of the most
valuable sopranos on the operatic stage.
Blessed with a fine voice, an excellent
constitution, courage, ambition and
good humor, she has won her successes
by hard work and by being always
ready for any emergency In her special
It Is reported on good authority that
Bhe will receive for the Incoming oper
atic season in New York from Abbey &
draw, $50,000, as much as Mclba re
ceived last year, and at the rate of $400
a performance wore than Emma Eames
will be paid this season. Since her
Bayreuth successes she has organized
an operatic company abroad which has
been appearing In many of the German
cities and everywhere to - immense
houses and audiences who have been
wildly delighted with the perfect pres
entation of Elsa in "Lohengrin." It is
anticipated that the rivalries this sea
son will be, not between Melba and
Eames, but between Melba and Nordlca.

Sousa, In a recent interview, defined
popular music as that which at its first
hearing attracts through its rhythm,
oddity or Intervals, or all three, and
creates a desire for successive hearings.
"I regard," says he, " 'Annie Laurie' as
much of a classic as the grandest sym
phonic airs that become popular, and if
they stand the test of time and retain
their hold on the public they should
be regarded as classic." Sousa won
ders how the public of bygone days
first received the melodies that are to
day the most familiar and best beloved,
and whether after the flrBt year's lease
of life of "Comln" Thro' the Rye," a
singer who wlBhed to give it as an en
core took his life in his hands as does
the man who now attempts to Sing
"After the Ball."

Formerly all the mandolins used in
this country were imported from Oer
many and Italy; now nearly all that
are used here, and a great many are
used, are made in this country.
In the past year and a half or two
years the mandolin haa become very
popular, and Us popularity shows no
signs of diminishing. The demand for
mandolins comes from all over the
country, and it is so great that whole
sale dealers In musical instruments are
not always able to keep up with it
promptly. It Is said that we make in
this country mandolins better than the
imported, and the same is said of Ameri
can guitars. Guitars made In this
country are how used throughout the
