And now cometh the season when things
theatrical hold little of Interest for the
public at large. It's too blsmd hot for
one reason and another reason Is that
there's mighty little doing. All the stars
have gone Into retirement more or less
artlght for the purpose of storing up new
energy that they may twinkle with un
dlmmed luminosity during another season.
The little ones who shine in the light of
the stars and who have been sufQclently
provident ars "resting" some plaee, while
those who were not like the ant of the
proverb are either forced to seek their
uncle" or do stunts with summer stocks
for cakes and coffee. In most of the west
ern cities, Omaha Included, the summer
took company will keep the Thespian tem
ple's fires burning slowly, while out-of-
door vaudeville at roof garden or ummr
garden or beer garden, as the rase may
be, will keep alive the memories of the
various things that were thought to be
funny or clever or pathetic last winter.
One may escape any of these by staying at
home and watering the flowers or cutting
the grass. At all events, attendance Is not
compulsory. But so many people feel Im
pelled to do something during the long
summer evenings and so frequently there
Is nothing to do but go to the theater or to
one of the gardens and thus the patronage
Is likely to be always on a paying basis.
Omaha Is to be well looked after in the
way of summer amusements this year. A:
Boyd'a theater the Ferris Stock company
will put on two standard plays each week,
most of them well known comedies, with
now and then a thriller Just to show that
can be done. Mr. Ferris promises a
better grade of acting than was given here
ast summer. At Krug's park the regular
out-door music and vaudeville show will
be given during the season under even
better conditions than those which made
that garden so popular last summer.
Courtland Beach will be open and will add
bathing and boating to Its other attrac
tions and Lake Manawa will do business
at the old stand, so there will be no lack
of some place to go for those who seek
surcease from the heat at home and can
pot find relief In golf or Its attendant de
lights. The Ferrts company begins Its
season at a matinee performance today
and the Krug park and Courtland beach
openings come later In the week.
Coming- Events.
The Ferrts Stock company gives the first
performance of Its summer engagement at
the Boyd this afternoon. The opening bill
will be Nat Goodwin's "In Miziourt." This
play will be continued until Wednesday
night. Thursday night the comedy drama
Denlse" will succeed It and continue for
the balance of the week. Both produc
tions will be given with special scenery.
William Karris, the scenic artist who haa
been painting the scenery used by the
Woodward 8tock company during the last
season, has been engaged for the summer
by Mr. Ferris. The roster of the princi
pals of the new company la as follows:
Dick Ferris, Orace Hayward, Malale Cecil,
Robert Blaylock, W. Elmore, Lawrence
Barbour, Thaddeus Gray, Joule Haines,
Miss Elmore, W. Winters, Ted Brackett
and Kittle DeLorme. Mr. Ferris will
enact the comedy roles In all of the pro
ductions and Miss Hayward the leading
female roles.
For two performances only, matinee and
evening today, at the Trocadero, Manager
Rosenthal will present his combination
professional and amateur acts. A very
large number of acts have volunteered,
among which are the Madison Square
Cycle Whirl; Tennis Robblns, the Omaha
songstress, who Is better known aa the
Girl from Southern Tennessee;" Dottle
Dimple, fascinating aoubrette; Ezra Ken
dall of the vaudeville stage; Rivera and
Madden, Jones and Revere, Madeline
Franks, Junle McCree, Allen and Mcin
tosh, Burt Jones, Imogens Comer, Rathbone
sisters, Phyllis Ruffell Idylla Vyner, Tom
Anderson, the Amphlon quartet and others.
Manager Rosenthal will also appear In an
original specialty.
Krug Park will open Its second-season
next Friday, May 30, with many improve
ments, and the first of a line of polite
and high-class attractions on which Its
dependance Is placed to repeat last season's
success. The car Una baa been double

the dally entertainments. Huater's new

Alvln Hunter was a aololot. The programs

Great Salt Lake of Utah and over and be

to the west this year go the Shrlnera. the
KnlghU of Pythias and the Elks. The
Shrlnera we have with us first, for the
first delegation to the slope will pass
through Omaha next Wednesday, when El
Kaaba temple of Cedar Rapids will be going
to the Imperial council meeting. The Iowans
have given themselves plenty of time and
they will see much of the country and the
people before the meeting of the council.
By going ahead they will also have time
to stop enroute longer than those whose
schedules allow for but little more than
ordinary running time, as will be the case
with Tangier temple, which will not leave
until June 4, when the other delegations
to the west will have passed.
The Elks will meet In Salt Lake next
month and an Omaha man la slated for ex
alted ruler In the person of George P.
Cronk. There la no other candidate for
the position In the field and none will be
mentioned If present plans are carried out.
The old divisions In the order have beon
cured. No scars remain, but as one of the
men who brought about the reunion and
kept the affairs of the Elks out of the
civil courts, Mr. Cronk la held in high es
teem by the persons who were in either
faction. This In a great measure accounts
for the fact that he will have no opposition.
In August the biennial convention of the
supreme lodge. Knights of Pythias, will be
held In San Francisco, and as hundreds of
thousands of Knights of Pythias will be
there from all over the country and the
event a memorable one It Is hoped that Ne
braska lodge No. 1, and Omaha especially,
will have a goodly representation there at
that time. A rate of $45 for the round trip
has been secured. This Is less than the
regular one-way rate. All members In
tending to make the trip will please give
their names to J. W. Fyfe, keeper of rec
ords and seals, at Haydens' store, or to
Will C. Matthews, master of finance, whose
office Is In the United States National bank
The Knights of Khorassan of Des Moines

Moquadem temple wishing to be of that
party will please send their names and ad

Monday night Nebraska lodge No. L
Knights of Pythias, had an unusually In
teresting and sprightly meeting. Two weeks
ago the lodge Inaugurated a rather novel
procedure In the meeting. On each meet
ing night a member la appointed to pre
pare a paper on his particular buslnesa or
calling, to be read by him at the next or
subsequent session, when a general dls
cusslon Is had on the subject by the mem
bers. Last Monday night V. C. Setter read
a paper on telegraphy, showing the progress
made In the science, lta benefit to the busi
ness of the world and lta tremendoua force
to civilization. Speeches were delivered by
Dr. Merriam of Triune lodge. Judge Berka
of Jan Hue lodge, Chancellor Commander
Wagner of Omaha lodge and others. Mon

paper on "Good Beef," and how best to ob

Here beglnneth one of a series of articles
on "Muelc Considered Nationally." The
series has been lnaplred by a circular, writ
ten by Mr. Kowalsky of San Francisco,
which waa sent to me by a friend In Wash
ington, D. C. This circular has the fol
lowing hesdlng:
Fifty-seventh Congress, First Session Sen
ate uorument No. .ff9.
National Conservator' of Music and Art.
Argument in favor of a National Con
servatory of Music and Art, by Henry 1.
Kowalsky of Fin Francisco, Cal. tTo ac
company 8. 5872.)
Mr. Kowalsky has developed hi scheme
thoroughly and It is to be hoped that some
thing will come of It The circular t
divided Into sections and It Is my Intention
to consider the best points each week In
this column until the circular has been
thoroughly ventilated.
All that Is necessary for any of these
great causes Is a compound elixir of agita
tion, exploitation and ventilation.
In developing mines and mining we might
also consider music and art.
Because a thing has never been done Is
no reason that It should not be done. And
then we do not need the consent of any
nation on earth, if we can get Americans
ta want It. If they want it they will have
It. Every musician should therefore see to
it that Americans are Induced to feel the
need of a national conservatory of music
and art.
Let us take up this week the first phase
of the subject: "To estsbllah one conser
vatory In the city or vicinity of Washing
ton, D. C, which will be a building con
taining forty studios sufficiently large for
classes of fifty student of music, and
twenty studioa for painting; one large as

be known and called The American Na
tional Conservatory of Music and Art. The
second to be established of a similar char
acter at New York; another at or near Chl
cngo, and a fourth In the vicinity of San
Francisco. Certain states are to be ap
portioned to each conservatory and to bo
known as the district to which the pupils
of the several states that shall be so ap
portioned will attend. Only ad
vanced pupila In music and art will be ad
mitted, after passing an examination, the
standard of which will be fixed by the
board of regents or directors. To
control and govern these conservatories, a
national board of regents shall consist of
the president of the United States, as an
ex-officlo member; the president pro tem
pore of the senate, the speaker of the
house, the chairmen of the senate and
house committees on education, and seven
citizen selected by the president. They
shsir be known as the governing and con
trolling board, who shall elect the general
director, whose salary will be fixed by the
said board. The general board will ap
point advisory boards from the citizens of
the respective districts to be hereafter de
signated, which boards shall select and em

Only a man devoid of judgment will deny
the power of music to elevate, educate
and benefit the citizens of any place. The
human soul ha for hi birthright the law
of rhythm, which la the first great law
of music. A local business man said to
me the other day: "We have seen the In
fluence of music at our band concert and
we aee that the people want It." True In
deed, but still there ie more to be said
and more to be done. How about the Com

It Is with regret that I chronicle the
departure of Charles W. Clark, the emin
ent artist, who will leave Chicago next
month to take up hia abode in Paris. Mr.
Clark la one of the few great American
singer. He la an artist to ths core. He
will leave America. He will have no real

American strength on the side of music
and strengthens European strength.
But what of It? Mr. Clark could sing a
recital to hundred ot interested people and
and get but scant notice In the Chicago
presa. But let "Dirty Dick" stsb "Leary
Llrzie" and the charming life of the dear
old tenderloin will be given special men
tion in Chicago' dallies.
And what Is true of Chicago Is true of
other plecea, and mark you the newspa
pers are not altogether to blame. They
print what their patrons and their adver
tisers expect. If this Is not true, why do
we never hear a complaint from aald pa
trons and advertisers?
One of the foremost teacher In Berlin
today is advertised aa George Ferguson.
He la. I am told, an American, through and
through. Then Charles W. Clark will have
Paris for bis permanent address. Just like
Clarence Eddy. My friends, musical and
otherwise, let us quit shooting firecrackers
on the Fourth of July, or else let us boom
our American product for a while.
Locally, the same condition exists. How
many pupils go east from Omaha to acquire
a musical education, which could be just aa
thoroughly attained In Omaha? I mean by
that, pupils go east expecting to do great
thing In tha "mystic east" with some
teacher who Is "In the east," but haa prob
ably come from some town smaller than
Omaha; while In Omaha we have good
teachers who have come from the "east"
and have settled In the west for business
It la all very well for Omaha musicians to
get east for further development, but let
them see to It that they have secured every
thing that ran be secured In Omaha first.
This I "standing up for Omaha."
Up to date there Is not a single Instance
of an Omaha atudent going east to study,
and accomplishing any great thing, except
perhaps Miss Mary Munchoff. There have
been many departures, but mighty few de
buts. Many have left and have. In vulgar
parlance "got left." Many have wandered
but who ha won?
There are aa good musicians and musical
Instructors In Omaha today as there are In
any other city, proportionately speaking. If
you think there is no musical atmosphere
In Omaha, It Is because you have never been
drawn Into It. It Is here. It 1 here to
stay. Get Into It and help make It general.
There are some Omaha people who per
sistently attempt to discourage students
by saying, "Oh, So-and-So Is no good. You
go east." In other words, "Why, how can
he be any good, he lives In Omaha?" Now,
let u be honest. The man or woman who
makes such a remark means exactly what
I have written and Is a disgrace to the
name citizen.
I repeat, Omaha Is well equipped to take
care of the student, and some Omaha teach
ers are recognized nationally. Let us
stand by each other aa the Commercial
club does by Its members. And let us all
pray for the speedy coming of the ttmo
when the Commercial club of Omaha will
recognize the value of muslo and musi
cians to the city of Omaha ere It 1 too
late ere It la too late!
And the romance ha left us even In the
old-fashioned hurdy-gurdy or hand organ.
Nowadays .we see a mechanical music box
hauled round the street by a horse. I
suppose that the enterprising vendor of
street music realized that hi muslo was
composed of "chestnuts" and that, there
fore, a caee of "horse chestnuts" could be
The recital given by the pupil of Mr.
Slgmund Landsberg at the First Congre
gational church Thursday night was a moat
delightful event. Usually a pupil' reci
tal Is looked upon with ennui, aa a specie
of "langwelllge geschlchte," but such was
not the case In Mr. Landsberg' program.
Every pupil was thoroughly equipped and
despite the Inclemency of the weather a
large audience assembled to hear the stu
dents do themselves proud. .Mr. Landsberg
Is a born teacher and his work waa proven
by muslclanly qualitiea displayed by each
of his pupila. Lack of space In this
column prevents an Individual mention of
each exponent. '

KANSAS CITY. May 14. A epeclal to the
Star from Arkansas City, Kan., says:
Frank Wilson today shot and seriously
wounded his wife, killed Abner Canter
and then committed suicide. Wilson wa
jealous of Canter's attention to his wife.
All three had lived on a farm In the ter
ritory across the line from here.
Wilson' bad threatened to kill his wife
and they separated, the woman moving to
Arkansas City yesterday to the home of
her mother, Mr. Sarah Favorite.
While Canter and Mr. Wilson wer at
work In the yard Wilson fired at Canter
without warning, killing him Instantly, and
fired two shots at his wife, one bullet break
ing her forearm and the second striking her
In the back and going entirely through the
body. Then he ahot himself In the mouth,
dying Immediately.
Wilson was a farmer and Canter had
worked for him aa a teamster. Wilson was
