PWhnt' wniLiiiimnny rviMuts thollnoat
concert everglvcn In Lincoln by homo
intent, wns equally successful from
rlnnnclnl jMtlnt of vlow, nnd tho IiuIIoh of
tho Women's Christian jisftoclntlon,
under whom auspice tho concert whs
kIvpii, and Mlm Mlnnlo Qnylord and
MliwNnnnto Lilllbridgo, nnd those who
Minted in tho excellently nrranged pro
gram, mny well congratulate themselves
on tho outcome of tho entertainment,
which was really it notablo event. It
u a cultured And fashionable audi
ence that tilled tho First Presbyterian
church Wednesday ovoning almost to
overflowing, Tho mimical contingent
waa especially well represented. Hence
tho enthusiasm that was manifested
throughout the ovoning wan a decided
compliment. Tho Tuxedo Mandolin
club ojwned with tho "Pearl of Sovoy"
which waa charmingly rondered. The
mandolin club, under tho direction of
Professor Eaton, ban rapidly dovoloed
into a splendid mimical organisation,
and if tho performance of tho lust fow
montliN may bo taken us an indication
of its urtiatio merit, tho club certainly
has a brilliant futuro before it. Tho
elections wore all highly onjoyod. Dr.
Eddy, unfortunately, camo on beforo
the audience waa fully aroused, but ho
aevcrtholcM received a warm reception.
Ills selection did him Infinite crodit.
Miss Lilllbridgo followed with "Ohofaro
Sens' Kurydico," by Qluck, a piece
calling for vocaliam of a high order. It
waa iwrhaiw tho moat ambitioua of her
selections, and It waa glvon with re
inarkablooaee, Miaa Llllibrldgo'a volco
i.i deep and full toned, but it la very
clastic, going to a aomowhat remark
able height with no apparent difficulty.
8ho waa probably novor In hotter volco
than on Wednesday night, and sho
thoroughly delighted tho audlonco. A
contralto voice pleases a Lincoln audi
ence, and Mli Llllibritlgo horeolf iaso
popular, and hor voice is so sweet, that
he quite carried away hor hearers.
She sang "Only Tonight," and "Yo
Banks and Braes" as encores, and all
Iter pieces were particularly orToctlvo.
tMles Qaylord came nest. Darring a
recital given last summer, this was hor
feat appearance in Lincoln in a public
concert. Mis Qaylord possesses a high,
clear soprano of much sweetness. That
ate la an aspiring singer waa evident
from her irat offering, "Casta Diva," a
dMacult pies of music, which she sang
' in a faultless humt. She .displayed
rare vocal gifts. She has a sweet and
powerful voice, and shows the result
of thorough training, For one so
young her voice has unusual depth and
fullness. She exhibited tho utmost
confidence. Indeed, both young ladies
were absolutely free from that nervous
Bess which so often characterizes young
Musicians. They wero so self possessed
that tho audience waa perfectly at ease
from tho first. There was nono
of that feeling of charitablo
anxiety, The concert assumed
from the first the dignity of an
exhibition of real art and It waa viewed
iu that light. Miss Gaylord was, of
course encored, singing In one instance
"Robin Adair." The male quartet la so
well and favorably known in Lincoln
Athat no comment la necessary on its per
.tormances. Miss Gaylord and Dr. Eddy.
1ipon being encored, sang the duet, "Oh,
hat We'Two Were Maying," Miss
:Marie .Hoover's two selections from
'ftaff and Liaat were very enthusiastic
ally received, As an encore 'sbe played
ffymplette" by Thome. Miaa Hoover
received her musical education in Bos
,ton. She Is a delightful pianist, playing
with marked finish and spirit. Her
technique is very good. Many of those
present heard her for tho first time,
She completely won the audience. The
inale,"Estudiaatina,'' known to some as
"The Jolly Students," a lively 'duet by
Miaa Gaylord and Miss Lilllbridgo, waa
' most fitting and pleasing climax to a
delightful evenfng'a ontertainmeut. The
'program waa aa follows:

Ideitlltleatlon by the Teeth.
Tho identification of bodies that have
been mutilated beyond recognition by
tho usual rules has until recently been
so difficult that every year hundreds of
bodies of heroes have been consigned to
But a now system of identification has
been discovered tuit is as accurate and
unfailing aa is tho famous system of
measurement employed by the Paris po
lico in keeping track of the criminals of
France. It is identification by means of
tho teeth. It was first suggested and
put in practico by a New York dentist.
For years it has boon the custom of all
first class dentists to keep a complete
chart of the teeth of all their patients,
together with a record of all their fill
ings, removals or other work done to the
masticators. Thcso charts and records
are carefully filed away and are kept as
long as the patient lives.
A comparison of several hundred ot
these charts recently made in New York
showed that no two of them were identi
cally aliko. The first and most noted
instauce whore Identification by tho teeth
waa made conclusive was in the caso of
Norcross, the dynamiter who attempted
the life'of Russell Sage and waa blown
to pieces. Whilo a trousers button fur
nished the first clew to his Identity, it
was not antll his teeth were examined
by his dentist that the identity wasWc
ognixed by the yosng man's parents.
Meat Hating nnd Had Temper.
In no country is home rendered so un
happy and lifo uindo so miserable by the
ill temper of those who aro obliged to
livo together ns in England. If we com
pare domestic life and manners in Eng
land with those of other countries where
meat does not form such an integral ar
ticle of diet, a notablo improvement will
be remarked. In less meat eating France
urbanity U tho rule of the home. In fish
and rice eating Japan harsh words aro
unknown, and an exquisite politeness to
one another prevails even among the
children who piny together in tho streets.
In Japan, I never heard rudo, angry
words spoken by any but Englishmen.
I am strongly of the opinion that the
ill temper of the English is caused in a
great measure by n too abundant meat
dietary combined with a sedentary life.
The half oxidised products of albumen
circulating in the blood produce lioth
mental and moral disturbances. Brain
workers should live sparingly if they
would work well and live long. Their
force is required for mental exertion
and should not be expended on the task
of digestion, for "they should remein1er
that the digestion of heavy meals in
volves a great expenditure of nerve
force." The healthful thing to do is to
lead an active and unselfish life, on a
moderato diet, sufficient to maintain
strength and not increase weight. Er

Modem Athleiee and Their Predeeeeaora.
In Outing 8. Scoville writes concern
ing athletic records. He is no believer
in the doctrine that in former times men
were more powerful and active physic
ally than they are at the present day.
He considers that tho best of the Greeks
were .probably a littlo superior to tho
athletes of today, but to tho Greeks
alonodoes ho award this praise. The
remarkablo records of feats of strength
and endurance that aro quoted as proof
of tho physical degeneracy of mankind
he is inclined to treat with scant respect.
Where reliable records have been pre
served he shows that in all contests the
athlete today in an abler man than his
Tho cause asnigned is better hygienic
conditions, a more intelligent system of
training and a better knowledge of the
laws of health. The author shows thai In
all running races, aave the long distance
races,, and in walking contests the time
is far better now than it waa before and
that the same superiority can be shown
to exist in every branch of athletics in
which it is possible to make comparisons.
While admitting that more perfect
.tracks and appliances of all kinds are
accountable for a part of the gain, Mr.
Scoville is of . ie opinion that the modern
athlete would have beaten bis predeces
sor on his own grounds.
