will, and George Whittsler deserves
great am' special credit for the part
he took. He was particularly instru
mental in saving the hotel. The

Th Apll to akaalutaly the only Piano Player in
the world which plays the entire key-board of a piano,
Tha Apollo, by a simple dTice, instantly transposes
any selection into any desired key. This is invaluable
for accompanying the voice or any instrument.
Tho Apollo Motor is made of fine steel and orass, like
a watch, instead of leather nnd wood, as in case of
other Players. A good watch will wear from 30 to 40
years. Think this over.
Tho Apollo touches the Key of your piano with a
finger instead of a lever,. consequently is non
mechanical. Tho Apollo enables the operator to sit upright in
a comfortable position. xThis is impossible with oiher
Tho Apollo has a Phrasing Lever that stops the
music without stopping the motor.

"For Mother's Sake" which will be

story that offends none, and i9 inter
preted by a thoronghly good company
in every particular. Amplified to do
the play full and complete justice, a
delightful story of New England life,

Prof. Funk, assisted by Prof. Sike
and ethers, to which an admission of
ten cents was charged. After the pro
gram coffee, cake and sandwiches were
served by the ladies. The Daughters
of the King are entitled to much more
tnan passing compliment for the
muscial treat which was given under
their, auspices. Professors Funk and
Sike were at their best. And they de
serve no more credit for their individ
ual contributions to the program than
for the exellent showing made by the
young pedple under their instruction,
who furnished a large part of the pro
gram. Miss Florence Kramer recited so
pleasingly that she was forced to re
spond with an equally pleasing encore.
And Miss Hockenberger's solo was
