dential duct ban been sung
and the sweet singer of Salt
Creek has been outaung by the
brilliant baritone of the Buck-
. eye state.
' Mimical life hereabouts will now take
i on a mora pronounced activity, because
.election times always keep the people
more or less unsettled, and the pursuit
of musical study suffers somewhat tem
porarily. This election has caused much discus
sion amongst the professional people, and
The Bee musical commentator has had
'every question ; settled and explained to
-his entire-satisfaction by other niombers
' of the profession; in fact, some bet were
heard of here and there. It la a good
thing to see musicians taking an interest
In Dnlltlrs. It gives one relaxation and
enjoyment and It doesn't hurt politics.
The present campaign has started the
writer upon an unusual train of thought
, In connection with political , matter as
the subject for opera. Here Ih a chance
for 'some musical lights to Jevelop a
new school of national opera. No charge
will be made fur the few suggestions
here laid down, but when the opera has
been' written and is a great success, it is
hoped that The Bee will be "mentioned."
' Look at the great opportunity: Chorus,
instead of being ranged along both sides
of the stage, singing and looking out to
the front, let It be standing with Its
back to the audience when fthe curtain
rises, looking up at a screen upon- which
the election returns are being displayed

such themes as "Every little bit sdded

harvest be?" would not be Inappropri

The following clipping earns the other day
from Seattle and the handwriting waa cer
tainly Ilka that of Mr. Frank Brown, If
memory does not play one false. Mr.
Brown waa well known In Omaha for many
year, and while his business was banking,
be had a constant love for the organ and
for good music generally.
A churchfull of music lovers sat through
a terrific storm at the First Presbyterian
house of worship last evening, during
which the lightning flashed, the thunder
rolled and a sixty-mile gale reached up
the big thirty-two foot pipe, with Dr.
Chase ut the helm and a breathless audi
ence dodging Imaginary thunderbolts.
At a few minutes after 8 o'olock with a
clear sky and smooth sea, this courageous
musician unbuttoned the green pillow share,
that hung as. a sort of fatigue uniform
over the business end of the great organ,
and fetched a far-away whine from ove:
the mountain to Indicate that the barom
eter was rapidly falling.
I'resentiy a milkmaid on the way to the
pump trills a guileless melody, while a
cloud perhaps no bigger than a man's hand,
Dr. Chase's hand, for Instance, steals un
over the mountains and one row of electric
bulbs In tha balcony fadea into darkness.
Out goes Dr. Chase's left foot, and a dis
tant rumbling of thunder, from another
big gold-plated whistle heralds the ex
tinguishing of aonther batch of electric
lights away up in tha celling. At this, the
startled milk maid ceases her warbling
and hies to the house and a whole covey
of clouds come up and turn the Interior
of the big ohurch Into a deep chocolate
brown, with only the gleam of a light at
the organ, to keep the audience from rais
ing their umbrellas.
Then tha big wind hits them. Heaven
help the poor mariner on the deep. Even
the oldest Inhabitant cannot remember such
a hard blow. Gwendolyn gasps hysterically
and nestles closer to Percy; and all the
whlie Dr. Chase tearing off handful after
handful of dripping chords and dragging
them down to the left-hand edge of the
keyboard, to disappear up the big thirty-two-foot
plpet now tearing things to shreds.
Away up in the celling a row of elan
trie bulbs comes suddenly to life and as
suddenly dies away, and a thunderbolt
tears through the huge auditorium, nar
rowly missing Dr. Matthewa, who smiles
serenely from among tthe members of tha
choir. Another flash back by the echo or
gan another craah of chewed up chro
matics, with Dr. Chase playing with the
hands one direction and walking up the
pedala in another.
And then Just as everybody Is on the
point of hysterics comes a rift In the
clouds and the lights In the upper section
of the big eggshell decide not to play
lightning any more, and the rain quits, and
the milkmaid cornea out on the back stoop
ana sings mm it la going to clear up.
Secret of Youth
for Women
Why Is it that eo many women remain
young and beautiful In spite of the fUtfnt
of yeara?
The aei;ret lies in the preservation of

of the monthly periods. No women can
hope to remain young and attractive who
suffers each month from ecanty. profuse,
painful br Irregular menstruation.
A simple and inexpensive prescription
which haa saved hundreds of women tro.rt
the horrors of monthly ailments Is the
following, which any good druggist will
fill: Alpen Seal, 2 ouneee; Fluid extract
Black Haw, 1 ounce; Pure Water, 6 ounces.
A teaspoonful before each meal and at
bedtime, taker) before, during and after
each period, regulates the flow, curea
cramps, soothes tha narves. banishes
headache, 'and clears and beautifies the
complexion. This is an eminent phyl
clan's prescription, which will do away

may have sn opportunity to try whether
h.'s sense of humor Is still In working order,
or whether It has gone to sleep. For when
a person loses his sense of humor all hope
Is gone.
But the opera scheme wss almost side
tracked by this seml-phtlosophlcal muHlug.
Now the comedians might have an oppor
tunity something like this: "Marry, me
thinks that now this erstwhile sane and
normal populace hath in true verity gone
daft." To which th other comedian re
plies: "Not so Indeed, sweet friend; they
have merely gone Tsft." After the roars
of laughter which should follow this, if
the chorus and "supes" have been trained
properly, the comedian might lead forth
again somewhat aftar this similitude: "Now
my fair and frolicsome friend, you have a
pretty wit, but can you tell me who's who
in New York?" To which omea the re
ply: "Yr, by my halldom. and I can tell
you who's who; Hughes who." Or words
to that effect.
And so on. Oh, there is much field for
plan and specification and enlargement of
this idea. Don't forget, you who take the
matter up. to have a seuilmotital ballad ou
thi subject. " 'Tia better to have bet and
lost than never to have bet at all."
Mu other ideas prts . themselves iuto
Such. Is the way. Dr. Frank Wilbur
Chase played it with an intelligent obli
gato of electrical effects. Nor is there
any doubt that whoever maneuvered tha
lightning did it well.
The dellclously witty manner In which
the appeal for the collection Is referred to,
Is worth reprinting:
After Dr. Matthews extended iilmself and
craek'd a few Jokes, and ssld what a nice
rholr he had and how much everybody
should strive to so live i that the ensuing
collection should be very extensive, not to
say, liberal a voluntary offering was received.

Priceless Tomes in State, War and
Navy Departments Oae Library
' Founded by Thomas Jef
fcraou. 1
In the State, War and Navy building are
three of Washington's oldest and most;
complete libraries. They afford Interest in I
hundred and one different ways other
than the mere fact that they contain books.
They are the archives of tha State, War
and Navy departments.
Bent known of these Is the library of the
State department, on the third floor.
wherein the original draft and the origi
nal signed copy of the Declaration of In
dependence, the constitution of the United
States, and the articles of confederation
are kept. This library was founded by
Thomas Jefferson In 1789, and consists of
06. volumes and 2,60) pamphlets, and now
Is a part of the division of rolls and li
brary.
The division might well be called the
successor to tha committee on foreign cor
respondence, established prior to the de
finitive treaty of peace of 17t2 and the
adoption of the constitution of the United
States, for until recently it waa the cus
todian of the papers and Journals of the
Continental congress, Madison and others,
which have boen transferred by executive
order to the library of congress.
In the library of the State department
are kept all original acts of congress, alt
treaties to which the United States Is a
signatory power, all proclamations and ex
ecutive orders, all papers relating to the
various claims, commissions, arbitrations
and boundary surveys.
The original draft of the Declaration of
Independence Is on exhiblltion to visitors,
but the original signed copy of that docu
ment and the constitution and the articles
of confederation are not. Corrections
made by Franklin and Adams can be seen
In the original draft, which Is In Jeffer
son's handwriting. It Is In a perfect state
of preservation, and rests In an open safe
with SD engraving of Jefferson and his
plan of his tomb beside it.
In the same locked sufV with the declara
tion is the constitution of the I'nlted
States. This famous document Is in a per
fect state of preservation, in spile of the
fact that It Is only thirteen years younger
than the Declaration of Independence.
With It Is kept the original Journal of the
constitutions! convention of 1787. Other
pspesr In the same safe are Madison's de-
papers In the same safe are Madison's ae
ons amendments to the constitution and
the ratification thereof by the states.
aval Mar Records.
Washington's finest collection of rare old
engravings and naval records is kept In
the srehlves of the library of the Navy
department as part ol the naval war
records. Thousands of valuable engrav
ings, palntlLtcs and phntograiths are on
file In this libra ry. Most of them include
portraits of prominent navul commanders
In the history of the United States, pic
tures of vessels thst have flown tile Stars
snd Stripes and civil war photographs.
This collection is equipped almost to com

and Stripes as a unit of Uncle Sam's navy
has Its picture in this gallery of naval his
tcry. . It Includes a photograph of ths bat
tlerhip Maino In Havana harbor, taken on
the afternoon of the day of the explosion.
One rare old engraving trade in October,
I'M, shows the Dutch flart under Tromp
la Its victory over ths Spanish and Portu
guese flcslf undsr Ocq,uer,d.o. Another en
graving made in IMC shows a delineation
of the naval war of the Venetians against
the Turks at the Dardenellcs.
In addition to the E.000 engravings and
pictures n the Navy department library
is a collection of 40,000 books, which in
cludes some of the rarest volumes In Wssh
Ington. John Paul Jone's own . personal
memoirs, in French, dated 1798, are on the
same shelf with a naval history of Queen
Elizabeth of England. A text book used
In the British navy more than 300 years
ago, known as "Sea Dialogues," printed In
Ixmdon In NW8, tells of the early methods
of flogging and keelhauling In the king's
navy. Every flag known to navies and
commerce Is pictured and described In a
book printed In Dutch In 1685 as a reference
book In the Dutch navy when that nation
was one of the foremost seafaring nations
of the globe. A miniature volume much
treasured by Librarian Stewart is a history
of H. M. 8. Itoyal George, bound In wood
from the remains of that ship, which sank
In the harbor of Spit head. England, while
beJng painted. In 1772. Dozens of old books
on naval warfare grace the shelves' of Mr.
Stewart's office. Anyone interested In an
cient but crude naval manners could spend
weeks looking over such volumes as "Man
valetto de BombcstI," printed in Venice in
15S0 as a history of ordnance. Volumes on
bucaneers are as numerous as they are. In
teresting. In the topmost floor of the State, War
and Navy building Is the War department
library, comprising more than 66.000 vol
umes, not including duplicates. Most of
these are cumbersome volumes, occupying
much space. This library is older than the
government of Washington. It was founded
in Philadelphia In the early "90s of the
Eighteenth century, before the seat of gov
ernment had been moved to the District cf
Columbia. This library also has a large
collection of photographs and engravings.
Civil War Photographs.
The Brady collection of civil war photo
graphs, for which the government paid
126,000, Is divided between the Navy and
War libraries. More than S.S00 large vol
umes of the documents of the house of rep
resentatives, bound In sheep and marked
with series numbers, are Incased here.
They are a library In themselves. More
than 8,900 volumes on military science can
be referred to here, In addition to the offi
cial records of the war of the rebellion, of
which there sre three sets, two loaning
sets and one teserve set, which never goes
out of the library. There Is also a com
plete pet of the original Journals of the
senate and house of representatives, which
Is a very rare collection of books. A
unique gathering of newspaper clippings on
the Si:inl8h-American war, comprising
twenty large folio volumes, to be found on
the shelves of this library, has the proud
distinction of being the only set of its kind
In existence. It cost the government more
than 11,0(0. Bound volumes of Eighteenth
century newspapers, the National Intel
llgencer from 1806 to U69, the Washington
GIo'mc from U31 to 1M9, and a perfect sel
of Nile's Register, in addition to numerous

nineteenth century, and twenty-three or

and office reports in connection with the
early American wars. There Is also a set

HOLDING UP THE PLATFORM
Asi Incident of the Late "trenaeua
Campaign with Taft la
Tennessee.
Senator William Alden Smith of Michigan
told a story at the White House when he
visited the president to tell him of the
great reoeptlons Judge Taft waa getting on
his speaking tour, which shows just bow
useful Oustave Karger and Judge Taft's
other friends on his special train are to
him. "We were at Bristol, Tenn.," the sen
ator said, "and were taken from the train
to a hall where Judge Taft was to make
a speech. As we got In, the crowd surged,
on the stage behind us, and refused to get
out. The result was that about half of
the big crowd could not see Mr. Taft at
all. One of the local committeemen, un
mindful of Judge Taft's weight, got a
splndle-shsnked tablo Snd placed It beside
him and invited him to get on top of it
Snd make his speech. In the confusion
(Judge Taft" took no notice of the frail
table, but climbed up and was soon making
his speech. Karger. Dr. Richardson and
the others heard the menacing creaks of
the table and looked every moment for m
fall. Karger got the chair, and, seating him
self at the table,- put his knees under ona
corner and held that corner up. Dr. Rich
