The meetings in progress at
the Methodist church have had to
contend with several severestorms
Sunday was a great day and large
mid enthusiastic congregations
greeted Evangelist Miller. In the
morning he spoke on “Home’’ and
:n the evening “The Trial of the
Divinity of Jesus Christ. ” Twelve
men were chosen as jurymen, the
only qualifications for such being,
they should believe in the Bible.
He developed from witnesses the
character of Jesus and the twelve
men rendered their verdict from
llie evidence adduced that Jesus
wis the Divine Son of God. Not
withstanding the storm Monday
night six persons went forward to
confess their sins. Tuesday night
was equally stormy, but there
w'ere several seekers. The meet*
ings will continue during the
weeek and at least over Sunday.
The pastor had hoped the meet
ings would dcvelopcuntil a union
meeting carried on by the several
pastors would he a necessity. He
still entertains this hope and
urges the attendance and cooper
ation of all the Christian people.

FALLS CITY CHORUS TO K.C.
FALLS CITY WILL HAVE A FINE
Six Choral Societies Representing
Four-hundred Voices and
The Women’s Chorus met Mon
day night with Mrs Banks to
take up the study of "The Four
Winds ’, Carl Busch’s prize canta
! ta. This meeting was a very en*
thusiastic one, being the last
meeting the women would meet
alone, as the male voices will be
added at the next meeting, Tues
|dav night, March 2nd.
'Pile books hail just come and
I although the Chorus had not ex
I ected to do much with the new
1 work, the Cantata, but arrange
parts etc,, the temptation was too
great to taste of this new wine of
western . inspiration and get a
breath of "The Four Winds’,
they were delighted and were
loath to go home. The conductor
was more than pleased at the man
ner in which the Chorus took up
this work. The Chorus expects
to get down to regular serious
work as soon as the gentlemen
come in and be ready to take their
partin the musical event of the
season, in Kansas City in May.
The Chorus feel that it is a genu
ine compliment to be asked to
participate in such an event, iu a
city of size and culture and by the
composer himself, and our citi
zens should take pride in an or
ganization that is theirs, and give
it the encouragement it deserves.
A clipping from the Kansas
City Star of Sunday, February
21st explains itself:
Six choral societies represent ]
ing 400 voices and three states]
will unite in singing Carl Busch’s]
cantata, "The Four Winds,’’ in
Convention hall next May. "The
Four Winds” won the $500 prize
offered by Strawbridge A Clothier
of Philadelphia. The cantata i
had its first performance in Phi"
ladelphia, in November, 1 *»07, and
was the most important feature of !
Joplin's music festival last Mav.
Now Kansas City is to hear the
work under favorable auspices.
The Chicago Symphony orche>-1
tra will be augmented to seventy
members expressly for the occa
sion- 1 he soloists will be John
B. Miller of Chicago, who sang
the tenor part in Joplin, and Aida
Hetnmi, a young dramatic soprano
i of New York City. The choral
societies which will take part are:
I The Philharmonic society and the
Walno chorus, noth of Kansas
City; the Fort Scott, Kas , Cho
ral I nion. \ erne Powell, conduc
tor; the Falls City, Neb-, chorus,
Mrs. Charles K. Bank?, conduc
tor, and choruses from Clay Ceil
ter and Bonner Springs.”
In 007 Strawbridge \- Clothier
of Philadelphia offered a prize of
$500 for the best composition
musical composition that would
be purely American, that would
be so characteristic of our coun
try. that one would feel instantly
on hearing the music the fresh
ness, the newness, the genuine
ness and the freedom of this, our
country. Of course it was ex
pected to be different from all
other nations music.
Carl Busch took the second part
of Longfellow's Hiawatha for his
theme, which tells of the origin
of the four winds and he tells the
story in Longfellow's words, with
a music so well adapted to their
meaning, that the freshness and
j originality is at once inspiring
and he called his composition
“The Four Winds” and submitted
it to the judges.
Out of twenty other produc
tions by eminent composers "Thte
Four Winds” was chosen as the
best and our western musician and
composer won the prize of $500,
for which we, who live this side
"the big sea water" ( Mississippi
river are justly proud.
