Now that the hot weather hns Rene , In
all probability not to return until It Is tlmo
for It In the prlnK. there Is little we In
further nnathcmntlrlnj ; Us persistent unsca-
eonalitcnoss 'I ho fact remains , however , anj
may bo plainly stated that the social world
lia suffered , alone with the other worlds ,
from the unprecedented continuance of dust ,
heat anil perspiration. An > Instincts of en
tertainment and who shall say how nuny
such or of what kind liavo existed ? were In
evitably stifled or melted Into a solid lump
of Inhospliallty an ! misanthropy by the
highest mean temperature ever recorded for
the flrst fortnight In October In this latitude.
The chronicle of engagements and marry-
Ings continues cncouraRlnRly full , In spite of
all drawbacks. Indeed. 03 was pointed out
in these columns In the early dajw of June ,
when the nuptial habit tlircatcncl to be
come an epidemic , the hotter the prrspcttlvo
tlmo In the old town tlio moro the sen Ices
of Unot-tjIiiR ministers of the gospel and
justices of the peace aru demanded. The
present Is thu beat nnd most comfortable
Kcason for Hitch txpuiltucnts , as many suc
cessful and permanent matrimonial alliances
bear ample witness It cannot bo gainsaid ,
however , that lu the pirtlculai respect of
hot weather vvuddluits , this year of Brace In
Omaha ftom May to November , has estab
lished a record which future scasona tire ex
tremely unlikclj to break.
As to the eventn which are to make tip
the soflcty piogram for the regular season ,
the opening or which Is not likely to be de-
laved long after the at rival of settlei ! cooler
weather , not even a initial outline can be
given at this time The larger dancing clubs
must soon , In the nature of things , begin
tholr round of plcusuiable festivities. One
or two of the smaller ones are alreadv on
the move , regardless of climatic conditions
At least the usual number of fall and win
ter engagements arc oven now discussed In
whispers among the intimate friends or
those most directly concerned and will be
proclaimed to the world .it the earliest mo
ment prac'tUuble Thrro arc some sut prises
among tlies.0. and otiicrs which aio not un
expected Several large parties arc known
to bo contemplated , but they are not jet
ready for announcement. It seems not un
likely that there will be moio card parties
this year than for several seasons past , which
will bo a grateful change to those who are
weary of the monopoly of dancing. Alto
gether , though details cannot well be given ,
the realm of soc-lctj bids fair to be quite us

In this artlo o ho writes about Jenny
Llnd , and this | < a part ofhat he sajs :
"She was an honest , homely , excellent
woman , and an Industrious \ocal mechani
cian , with n lovply , smooth , luclous. true
soprano voice , not o y extensive , jet capv
ble of cxriiilslto modulation , but with limited
technique , but little Inspiration anil almost
Incapable of climacteric force. Her Irmno
paneg > rials needn't carp at this , for didn't
I have the run of her rooms at old Del-
monlco's' and dli'n't she use to turn the
leaves for me as I played for her. and dldn t
I have all the free tickets I wanted lo her
concerts' True , 1 was but a lad. but I had
a ptlr of cars even then" asses a'o born that
way "and no one could fool mo much at nnr
tlmo on musical virtuosity. "
There have been modest musicians , but
Mr. Hopkins has not been classed that way
for some vears A valet has been known
to think himself greater than his master nnd
It Is not at all a new thing for on accom
panist to estimate himself as much greater
than the artist ho pla > s for. Many people
cannot appreciate a good or great thing un
less It Is shrouded In mvstery and this Is be
cause they have no ability to appreciate good
ness or greatenoss In Itself. One would think
that under those circumstances they would
appreciate their own , foolishness , which Is
both great and mvsterlous Mr. Hopkins
thinks that P. T , Darnum made Jenny Llnd
Well , If that was so , why , when she can
celled her contract with him before the
season was oxer , did ho not make another'
Ho s > nj.v "Darnumcould and did make
Jenny Und a great card , but only God Al
mighty could have made her a great singer ,
nut she was a dear kind woman to me and
corned me with praise. " It Is to bo feared
that that praise Is still rattling about In
Mr. Hopkins' cranial cavities and that ho
mistakes It for brains. Let us look a llttlo
at Jenny kind's actual career and at the
place she occupied In the world of musical
Jcnnlo Und was ono of the world's greatest
singers , but she was not only a singer , she
was a great woman and a benefactor of her
race In many wajs outside of music. She
was torn at Stockholm , October C. 1S21
Her parents were poor and she a sickly
child , plain-featured and awkward In hur
manners When put to the test she dh-
plaje'd an exquisite voice , profound concep
tion of a. part and originality of style. \s
a child she was taught Hinging and as Is
usually the case when children are allowed
to use their tender thronts In the se\ere
work of vocalizing , she lost her voice at the
age of 12 During four ve.irs she was In
dlspalr hut In some strange way her voice
returned as suddenly as It wont Shei made
her first great success as Agatha. In Weber's
opera , "Der Krcischut/ " The following Is
an. opinion of the performance that has comedown
down to us "She was then in the springtime1
ot life fic'h , bright , herene as a morning
In May ; perfect in form , bet hands and arms
peculiarly gracuful , and lovely In her whole
appearance She seemed to move , speak and
sing without effort or art All was nature
and harmony. She sang * , ltli a burst of
outflowing love and life that called forth
not the mirth , but the tears of the auditors "
After two vcars at the Swedish opera. Mile
Llnd went to the great teacher. Garcia , for
lessons , and while under his tuition Mejcr-
beer , tlio opera composer , heard her and
Bpoke of her voice as 'one of the llnest pearls
In the chaplet of song " Another critic said
of her "On the stage she was the great
artist who rose above all those around her ;
at home , In her oun chamber a sensitive
\oung girl with.all.tho humility of a child
Her appealancoshowed me-ait In Its janctl y.
I h.-'d beheld ono of Its vestals" She was
engaged as second singer at Herlin. but HOOII
ro e to the highest pinnacle of fame c\er
attained by any singer at the German capital
With her ( list sucee-ss began what was called
"tho Llnd madness " The great soprano
Henrietta Sontag , called her "tho first singer
of the world" Mendelssohn said of
her" "There will not ho born. In a whole cen-
tuiy another being so largely gifted as Jenny
Llnd " During her appearance at Vienna
2-mark seats rose to 50 marks and thousands
of people were often turned away.

When Jenny Llnd loft Stockholm for Lon
don , where she was to fill an engagement
In opera , " 0,000 people assembled on the
ciuay. military bands had been stationed at
intervals on the route , and her progress
through the streets was like that of a queen ;
ships weio decorated with Hags , and even
the war \essels thundered salutes with their
artillery. In London eho was the guest of
Mrs Grote , wife of the historian of the
Greeks At the close ot the first perform
ance "Jonny Llnd was secuiely throned the
operatic goddess of the town" For subse
quent perfoimanccrj 25 were paid for a bo c
and 5 guineas for single seats At the close
of her London engagement she returned to
Stockholm , sang to Immense houses and devoted -
voted the entire- proceeds of the season to
the endowment of an asylum for drcajed
trtists and a school for girls studying music
On the evening of May 10 , 1819 , she bide
farewell to the operatic stage The perform
ance occurred at Her Majesty's theater , Lon
don Ulght In the midst of her greatest
triumph , she knew enough to withdraw from
the arduous work of the stage
At aleut that time she concluded a con
tract with P. T Harnum for an American
tour and In September. 1S50 , she arrived
In Now York. The proceeds of the first
concert amounted to J2i,000 ! and the singer
gave her eharo to charity. Her generosity
was almost boundless , she gave away in Ger
many 30,000 florins , In England 60,000 , In
America $50,000 She engaged with Harnum
for 150 concerts , but when ninety had been
given she pild him $30,000 and cancellel
tlio contract. The remaining concerts were
given under her own management In Bos
ton , February 5. 1S52 , she married the plan-
i L Otto Goldschmldt In 1852 they returned
it , riuropo , lived In Germany several jeais
and then settled In London Her last public
appearance occurred Jill ) 23 , 18S3. She died
after a painful Illness , at Wynd's Point ,
Malvorn. November 2 , 18S7.
Mile. Llnd did not occupy the place ac
corded her without winning It In spite of the
most obstinate dllllcultlcs She Is an exam
ple of perseverance from which ovciy musi
cian may ptoflt It Is too late for self-ap
pointed critics to detract from the fame she
BO honestl ) earned.
Every ono who Ins heard a concert or
chestra such as Scldl's has noticed a largo
/rass Instrument called a trombone ) It Is
conspicuous to the eye on account of the
nannor in which It is plied , for the per-
'ormer Is constantly sliding a part of Its
eng tube to and ; fro as one might open and
clcbn a telescope , or wotk a pump Indeed
on account of thjf ( ijovomont It received the
lame Saclnit. from the Moorish word
Sacabuehu , which wetins a pump Those
who Imvo heard Sopsa's band will remctn-
ier the three or fmir performers who in
some of his marches , leave their places In
ho bind and stand out In front as soloists
and pla ) , with powerful tone , the melody
these men pla ) the trombone. That sliding
) ack and forth -at .tho lower part of the
uno causes It tq be often called "tho slldo
rombo'io" It lb the noblest , grandest In
strument In tliu-orLhestra or band Si mo
composers have ( btJoined It HO highly that
hey ha\o held that It should bo used spar-
ugly and rrveriMttly. It Is a most ex-
iresslvi1 Instrument , as we shall ecc later on.
Tl'o trombone is not a new or modern In-
trunierrt. It Is j form of trumpet , and the
rumpet Is one of the very oldest ot Instru-
nents The Italians call It "Tromba Spe-
ata , " which means "broken trumpet , " en
ccount of the loner part of the tube being
detached , and able to move to and fro It
s believed that this "slldo" Is an older form
of mec-hanlsm than either the crook or pis
ton The Invention of the trombone U
claimed for ono Trtaeus , who llvod CS5 I ) .
C It Is said that two were once found
among the ruins of Pompeii , but If so they
have been lost. In Germany , In 1520 , Hans
Menchcl made slldo trombones. In 1C20
there were four orders of the Instrument
The trombone consists of a filnglo small
tube of composition metal , bent twice upon
Itself and ended in a bell. In the middle
it Is double , ono part fitting closely Into the
other , as the parts of a telescope It is a
universal principle of wind instruments that
an open lube c n Rive not only a funds- ,
menUI or lovvett tone , but a ncrlcn of ascend , i
ln tones founded upon that one Kor in-1
Rtancc , In the tenor trombone the funda
mental tone l ) flat. Without moving the
slldo the player run. by theprpsanrc of his
lips , sound the D flat one octave utmvc , the
F R fifth above , then the second octavo and
the D , F , ' \ ilat , 13 flat and C Some pla-
ers can RO even higher The slldo can take
any number of positions , but seven are rec
ognized ns giving the bases of the m icil
scales In use and thcoe seven positions will
inahlo the pliver to execute the whole , hro-
tuatlc scale , excepting In the lower roister
of his Instrument. DeRlnnlng with the D
Hat below the bass staff there are four ad
ditional low notes possible , nami-ly it flat ,
A , A fl. t and G. Detvveen the U flat anil the
E above It there Is a gap In which the
ordinary slide trombon'e can eound no tones.
This hiatus lu been filled In by the French
Instrument maker. Sax , who has Inventevl a
piston which rcnlers possible- the D , C ,
C sharp , D , and E flat that were befoio
missing , so now the trombone has a com
plete chromatic scale of three octaves and
a fourth. Of course much depends upon
the skill of the player ; borne cinnot produce
ior the extreme low or high notes.
I he trombone was much written for by
Bach , Handel and others ot the old time
composers It was often used for parts now
ordinarily given to the Fron-h horn. The
trombone player's skill Is analogous to the
singer's In that he must depend laiRoly upon
his ear and musical instinct. His Instru
ment has no lived sounds , as has a piano
forte , ho has to determine the pitch him
self. If he Is an artist ho cau pla > with
\\on.lerful expression Miul If he Is a "mu
sician" ho can and surely will- produce
sounds ar. from the Infernal regions lohn
Innes can play the tendcrest melody with all
the dellcac ) and pathos possible on a vlolli
or ho can thunder out tones that si-cm as !
they would put to ehamc Gabriel hlmsel
DerlloJ , the greatest of all writers on In
striimcnls nnd their use. thus writes of th
trombone : "Tho trombone Is , In my opln
Ion , the true chief ot that race of v im
Instruments which I have designated a
epic Instruments. H possesses In an eml
nent degree , both nobleiiieijs and grandeur
It has all the deep and powerful accents o
high musical poetry from the religion
accent , calm nnd Imploring , to the w-lli
clamours of the orgy. It depends on the
composer to make It by turns chant like n
choir of priests. Uneaten , lament , ring n
funeral knell , ralso a hjmn of glory , brcaV
forth Into frantic cries , or sound Its dreao
flourish to awaken the dead or doom UK
"Gltick , Ocethoven , Mozart , Weber. Spon
tint and some others have comprehended a
Ite Importance. With perfect Intclllgenc
they have applied the various character
Istlcs of this noble Instrument to deplctln
htiimn passion , to illustrating the sounds o
nature , and they have maintained Us power
Its dignity and Its poetry. "

"I dldi not attend the meeting of the Na

the same old New York ciowd that ra
things , and It seems that they manipulate !
the bus'ncss affairs of the meeting In thel

Us affairs outside of New York They ar
moro given to blow , brag and bluster thar
anv thing else The one man that lias don
moro to keep the National association allv
than the whole New York cont'ngont wa
deposed. It was a blunder to hold the ne\
meeting In New York , Instead of Omaha
I am willing that New York should have th
National association ( In name only ) I an
also In favor of a western association to
meet next year In Omaha. I wish that In
diana , Illinois , Michigan , Iowa M'nnesota
Wisconsin , Missouri , Kansas , Colorado am
Nebraska could Join hands In a meeting to
next year at Omaha , where wo would nice
with a hearty welcome There Is a fln
orchestra there that could be augmentoi
from hero If found nece uary. There wll
be much to see out theie then , and th
tilp could not bo otherwise than a pleasan
one I hope this great west , with Its solic
development , w Ul no longer cater to th
rapacious maw ot New York. "
