Mr. Sotwakl's song recital is creating
much curiosity and it is looked forwatd
to with active Interest, Mr. Bobeskl haa
prepared a program which Is a challenge
to all local singers to extend their scope;
such musicians are needed here.
The election of Mr. Taft seems to hmve
created "confidence" among pianists and
musicians generally, aa well as In the
business world. If one Is to Judge by the
appended list of programs. The Bee will
certainly be obliged to appoint some as
sistant musical editors If this business
keeps np. Think of the average person
listening intently to all of these pro
grams. There certainly la a feast for
the most hungry
Mr. Ffitxner. who plays his first re
cital here, la a man who has a splendid
reputation as a musician and as an artist.
It Is quite certain that he will prove very
interesting, if The Bee critic is not en
tirely misinformed. And they will find
plenty of appreciation.
It is a pleasure. Indeed, to draw atten
tion to the remarkable program prepared
for the Tueaday Morning Moelrale mem
bera. The presentation of such a com
bination aa the French modern program
and the recital of pianoforte music by
Mrs. Ilerxog, already a fa-or!te here, on

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Oahm have been

and Mrs. Uahm would play that night,
he went to hear them. He spoke enthusi
astically of the recital.

way Is a solid maas of gllatening white,
Inatead of a faint atreak of color, th stars
In Its course seeming to crowd one another
like the flowers on a tropical plain.
Perhaps some timber wolf, silhouetted
from a promontory of the canyon's side, Is
sending his braien challenge to th rising;
moon as It peep above the towering mina
rets of the mllo-deep canyon. The unheed
ing moon sends Its pale, cold shafts upon
A rock piled up to th clouds.
and th shivering beast stifles his half
uttered howl of rage and slinks Into th
protecting shadows of the canyon. In the
mellowed and softened light the ghostly
sentinels of stone which have thus stood
on guard through th countless age gone
aeem of another world, a world of un-
fathomed mystery, a world resonant ot a
majestic, creative power; the waterfall Is
like a thing of life, betwltche with beauty
as It dances and sparkle against the white
face of the rocky btttteress, and life itself,
m fancy, almost seems to have suspended,
to let the spirit mingle untrammeled with
the spirit of the Creator of one earth's
greatest and most sublime cathedral.
Tou are utterly alone with nature, her
to commune with ell which la most Inspir
ing, and then to dream under a canopy of
matchless charm and beauty. Bleep! To
even sleep the Tosemlte gives a new defini
tion, as It does to the awakening whlcii
brings a renewal of life and an exhilaration
unknown to other climes. The moon, like
the angry wolf of the night now spent. Is
driven to hide Its face.. Th sun Is mount
ing the curved and glistening helmet of th
Half Dome. Its rays are creeping Into th
valley. Now they are upon Cloud's Rest,
now upon Olaeler Point, and now they
lighten the great falls and mount the sheer,
bald, white face of EI Capitan. Boon they
are climbing the Cathedral Rocks and are
sending their lights through th water of
the Bridal Veil.
Buch a night and such a dawn! He who
has experienced them has a soal within
him which haa been touched by an Inspira
tion from on high. 6. Qlen Andrus In Chi
