Patlma'a energies seem to be limitless.
She la founding schools for Turkish girls,
whose, parents cannot afford to have
foreign governesses. Now, this means a
Kroat deal, because the Turkish woman
of th middle class Is about as Ignorant as
a human being; can be. If her husband
ts wealthy enough to keep sl.ives she dots
nothing all day long1 but sit on a cushion,
eat a sickly sweetmeat ami pluy with
cheap German toys. She never reads,
rarely aews and has not an Interest In tiie
world beyond the harem anil Its petly
squabbles and Intrigues.
Though Q princess, Fatlma ed Melmed
knows thla wearisome life very well. Iter
father was a rich merchant of Medina, one
of the most conservative towns In Turkey,
and married her to a poor prince. When
she entered her husband's family she saw
how great was the difference between the
life of aristocratic Turkish harems and
those she had been used to. She saw that
the Inmates of the former had French, and
Kngllsh governessess, spoke foreign lan
guages fluently, wore dresses from Pttquin
and hats from Virot and had their rooms
furnished In a strange, fashion. Including
brass bedsteads and wooden chairs. She,
on her marriage, could not eveu read aud
write Turkish.
In a few years after her marriage, she
bad not only mastered her mother tongue,
but oould speak and reud -French and, Eng

more she longed to learn and see. She
longed to walk about in tho streets and go
to visit her femnle friends on foot. Only
on very rare occasions did aho leave the
Harden of the, harem and then she was
always la a ckso4 carriage, with the blue
silk blind lowered and a stifling veil over
her face. Her husband had but one wife,
not so much hwvauao ho approved of

Music and Musical Notes
'IE musical critic attended a roa- i
cert last w k which mad- hlin
do a lot of serious thinking.
(Yes. It was a good thing that
he wtnt.)
A man tlay.-d. Ills program
was a big one. It tiui-t lime cost him
many houi of hard, hard wrk mid nlgiits
of, alternating with days i f practice.
The preparing f that one program cave
full proof that enerey had been expended,
antigy without stint or pause.
Anil yet what was the matter? It was
only too plain that pi nple were not moved:
that Is, mentally. Some of the kadlmx
musicians were moved to leave the build
ing, niid some showed their disapproval by
having In the mlddlu of a number. What
was the matter?
The lice music man, as he Is railed at
the . ffire. never had a harder task tlian
wrltit-.g the troth of that particular eon
cert. He hated to do It. It is always
more pleasant to give words of encourage
ment than to receive abuse for telling the
truth. Hut the critic must be an Impartial
judge. Ofttlmes his sympathies nra entirely
with the person criticised.
What was the matter? It was all "letter"
aud no "spirit."
The "spirit" of music "maketh alive,"
Just as the "letter" kllleth.
Is there not too much "letter.'' that
to say, too much "techrlcal expression" at
all of our concerts and not -uuni:li of the
"spirit" of music, or that which "Inspires,"
that which la an inspiration?
Let cn illustration serve to bring nut the
point. Every reader of this column knows
the old si-ry about the old laiiy wh-,
dropped into a fashionable church, and
who, as the sermon proceeded, became very
enthusiastic and exclaimed loudly, "llallo
li'Jah!" Whereupon the usher came to her
ami expostulated. Hut later the cry was
repouted, and again the usher came tin-prove
the woman. Hut s'ie repped, "Why
bless your In art, young man, I've just gjt
religion." Then the usher said. "Yes,
madam, but you must keep o.ulet, this Is
no place to get religion."
Of course, the stonf is Improbable nnd
all that, and yet even in fashionable
churches one sometimes hea-s th- real
essence nf the truth.
Now apply the same. How often haw
you len so thrilled at a concert that von
felt like crying out, "I love music?'' H'ow
often in your concert attendance have you
felt deeply and gloriously the significance
of the fact that you really loved "music?"
You may be attracted by the urtist. You
have been known to say that. Y'ou have
been dazzled by the brilliancy or the tech
nique. Y'ou have been heard to say that
also. You have been know to enthuao
over the, or the work, or the
presentation. But did ou ever get down
to tho heart of things and say to that
other soul who sal with you, "My, how I
do love music?"
Of course, this is all very sentimental,
and all that. But really Is It?
Mush- Is a ministry. It is not merchan
dise. Music is a holy gift. It ts not art amuse
ment. When Music is In its "holy temple," all
the earth doth keep silence before it.
It Is tho duty and privilege of all musi
cians to sue that the temple is not pro
faned. And It is well that we should not
mistake tly temple far the Spirit of Mu,sie
Itself. And hoiy as Is the temple. Impor
tant as is the technical expression, one
must never worship the temple Instead of
the Spirit, ttf .Mualcx , ;fpr it is the Spirit
which makes the temple holy, and not
Those are thoughts which came to a
music critic at a concert.
A letter enme from he west one day last
week and it was- from a teacher in a far
off city In Nebraska. The letter told of
the fact thiit column has been read
constantly by "a woman who lives On a
homestead twelve or fifteen miles from
any town. And this clever, college
educatud wotnau admitted that these
columns were In some, little way an in
fpirution to her.
Now, ot courHe. It ts highly Improper and
very much out of place to alludo to an In
cident like this. In tills particular ('oliinm.
But let us waive that point. It is of the
woman that the writer is now thinking, mid
not of the kind words which she said.

that there Is no opportunity to study the

That la not good conversation.

Having no money she went to the editor
of a Berlin paper and asked for a loan in

"copy" about the revolution. He was very
much surprised at this offer from a woman
who looked like foreigner, but, on bear

There are teachers In the smaller towns
of Nebraska who are working, on, how
hard! and many of them with nil too
little encouragement, to create a musical
thirst, a musical taste, a musical atmos
phere. And The Bee music department
often hears stories of self-sacrifice and
devotion to the cause of music In
smaller towns stories which moisten the
eyes of even the hardened and harsh
critic of The Bee stortea which are too
sacred to put Into print, even In a Sunday
It is for the sake of those teachers that
he alludes to thia letter which lies be
fore hlin, which a sincere and brave little
music teacher wrote to him, out of the
fullness of her dear musical aoul, when
the snow was fulling last Sunday after
noon. When you feel the loneliness of your
position, think of the one who yet keeps
up her Interest In the higher things and
who lives on "a homestead twelve or fif
teen miles from any town."
What a great thing it Is to be able to
keep the uplook, when the outlook ia not
very pleasant.
There ia a little newspaper clipping
pasted on the wall over the desk of one
of the editorial force of Tho Hue, and
when the young woman who placed it
there looka up from her desk for a mo
ment she reads these words: "The phil
osophy of harplness consists of being
happy, not because of thiugs, but lu bplte
of things."
There ia a great inspiration for people
who are looking for happiness In their
musical growth and expansion, in that
sentence which la pasted on the wall In
The Bee office. Not because of things,
but In spite of them. Happiness of that
kind is genuine, and he who has attained
it Is already a philosopher.
Y'ou are indebted to the New York Sun
for the following delicious bit. There Is
a serloua side to It, too, tf you happen to
see it:
A well known New York teacher of sinii
iiij.'. an Italian, was having hia first talk
with a new woman pupil.
You are a great friend of Caruso? she
lie admitted that he was.
"Then vou must tell me something. she
went on enthusiastically. 'How many
bricks can he stand?"
"Bricks?" repeated the professor.
Yes, bricks.'' she repeated. "llow
manv bricks can he stand on hia chest? '
U took some minutes to clear up the
mystery. ' Then the young woman told of
a former teacher who to make her misirei-s
of the secrets of bel canto hail trained her
to do her exercise with u brick ou her
chest. That was sup-iosed to compel her
to breathe from the stomach. She had
been told bv the teacher that excellence
in singing c'amo from the ability to keep
the muscles of the chest absolutely still
and there must be the Impression that u
weight rested on them. The teacher con
fided that Madame gemb'ich could sup
port thiee bricka without, trouble.

key. The mombers of the "Young Turkey"
party wlwx were In the town declared that
not a finger should be raised against her.
Al this the reactionaries, to whom her
father and husband belonged, were furious,
and called a meeting at which they de
clared that all the revolutionists wanted
to do was (o net a constitution In order
that the women might go about unveiled.
Tins announcement caused such an uproar
In tho town that all the "Young- Turks"
would have been mobbed had not a number
of troops arrived and dispersed tho crowd,
arresting tho agitators.
After this Fatlma besran a preaching tour
through Turkey, which she Is still con
tinuing. Her story soon beenmo known
aud very many educated Turks declared
themselves to be on her side. But this was
not a difficult fortress to storm, because.
no aristocratic Turkish household keeps up
eastern customs in their entirety, and,
when revolutions are going on, great
changes can take place In a short time.
Amongst those who support her warmly Is
Prince 8a hah od Pin, a prominent liberal
and a very cultured man.
"You are. perfectly right," he said to hor
at a recent meeting Bho held in Constant!
nople. "Our women must be educated, en
Joy homo life, should go about unveiled and
receive visitors without restriction like
other women do. But you must be prudent
and moderate or you will not only spoil
your own cause, but that of young constltu
tlonal Turkey as well."
The prince put the situation in a nut
shell. If Princess Kiitlma and hor follow
ers press their cause too hard they will
not ouly turn mtddlo-claas Turks and the
lower orders against them, but will turn
them against the new Turkey and its con
stituMoii, against progress and reform of all
kinds, throwing them hack into the arms
of the reactionaries. For, In spite of tho
revolutions and the foreign customs ob
served in aristocratic houses, the provincial
Turk, though he may have but one wife.
Is adverse to any changes at all in his
house and private life. Badly educated
himself, be docs not see why his wife and
daughters should be taught to read and
get "new Ideas." Most, nay, nearly all
th small provincial towns are like Medina
and the inhabitants1 would nuib anybody
who advocated women's emancipation.
It is amongst this class that the changes
ought to be made If Turkish women's fu
ture is to be more enlightened than their
present; and it ia Just this class who will
receive changes with anything but a smile
of welcome. This is what make Princes
Fatlma task so hard, though all really
liberal Turks wish her success and help
tier not only with words, but with gold
which she spends upon the cause she has
so much at heart.

despite all recent disclosures of the mis
use of corporate power by the unscrupu
lous. This was shown, as it never
had been before In our history. In the
recent disastrous financial panic, whfs
hundreds of thousands of small investors
came into the market place with their
savings to take railroad, industrial and
bank shares olf the hands of thoroughly
frightened speculators and capitalists.
The rapid growth of Industrial "trusts"
nnd railroad combinations in the last ten
years has centralized control, and the
careless observer has mistaken this for
centralized ownership. But 'he centraliza
tion of control has been accompanied by
tho spreading out of ownership. The steel
corporation concretely illustrates this
amoug the industrial combinations. Be
fore the formation of the Steel "trustlcts"
of 'he '90s, many of the mines, mills
and furnaces were privately owned. A
few rich men owned these independent in
dustries. This public did not participate in
the profits, except In the form of wages.
Now, with centralized control, iKMXX) in
vestors aro partners In tho steel business
and participate In the profits.
Hallrojid sua Industrial Storks.
Four years ago. when tho Interstate
Commerce commission made its report on
railroad shareholders, the railroads had
&,U0W owners. Since then they h.ive in
creased to fuily SuO.Oou. 8oo,0( rail
road owners divide $:m,(m, no a year in
dividends, an averare for ejeh owner of
lK just about the average earnings of the
1,500,000 railroad employes. Seven of the
big Industrial combinations have 'i,hu
owners on their books, steel, telephone.,, copper, Pullman, smelters, oil.
Those account for only Sl.6u0.uuu of In
dustrial slock, a minor fraction of the
country's total. It is conservative to estl-
mato the number of other owners of in
dustrial shares at several hundred, thou
sand, llow many people own milling stock
in proven, proix'rties can ouly be con
jectured. Taking no account of "wildcat"
companies for we are talking about in
vestorsthe mines of the country must
have several hundred thousand share
holders. And then there are thp banks.
Hank Stuck Well Distributed.
The popular fallacy Is that a few thou
sand rich men own all tho banks, but toe
truth is that as many thrifty American
own bank shares as railroad shares. It is
fulr to. estimate that upward of .mi
people now own these institutions. This
takes no account of the 12,000 trust com
panies, state hanks and private banks,
whose owners make up another great
army of Investors.
The public's ownership of the highest
grade securities Is very clearly shown in
the "guaranteed" railroad shares, whose
divklends are guaranteed by lessees. The
sltares of more than a hundred thoroughly
seasoned railroad properties are thus al
most as safe investments as bonds, and
they are eagerly sought by executors, trus
tees and guardians, who are intrusted
with funds belonging to others. An exam
ination of the shareholders' list of these
roads, showing page after page of In
vestors, men and women, holding each a
few shares (often only one' share) names
unknown to Wall street and the newspaper
reader Is striking proof of the publics
ownership of the sound corporations. Share
holders' lists re closely guarded. Most
companies feel tha they have no right to
diaclosat the names of their shareholder,
because every American citizen has the
rltht to privacy in his investment.

IJeal "Ecomony" actually saves something.
"Economy" Coal is real economy because it saves
Cni rnct nAnA1. because it costs less per ton than
OaVCa ItlUllCj other coal of equal quality. Be
cause it lasts longer. Because both the weight and the
disposal of clinkers and slate cost money. This is a
saver because Economy Nut lias no slate and makes no
clinkers. Because, like all Sunderland coal, it is dry,
and dry coal is lighter and cleaner. Therefore, more
in a ton than wet, dirty coal.
CfllfOC f lfaftP Because you don't burn so much
uuVw LclUUI coal you don't put so much in the
stove. Because a coal that burns right like Economy
Xut-r-doesn't have to be poked and punched and shaken
and that 's labor saved. It is also labor to carry away
slate and clinker, but not if Economy Nut is used, for
there are none.
Q!7IC TllTl4 When it's cold and you shiver
iJuVvij lllilts around waiting for the breakfast
fire to. burn, minutes are like hours. Economy Nut cw
kindles and starts burning quicker 'en-scat. A fine
steady, regular heat is what you want for the kitchen
stove. Many a meal has been delayed if not partially
destroyed by reason of the poor coal acting up,"
Qnupc Wnrrv lf yonr al loes not do for you
OuV va If Ul I j what Economy Nut will do, it does
not serve you properly and worries you. When the fire
won't start quick, wont burn right, won't cook to suit,
won't economize in money, labor and time, you worry,
don't you.

stoves aud furnaces. Those who desire most heat
for least money can well afford to try it. Burns as
clean as regular hard coal. Makes a better fire, is
more easily controlled by the draughts and costs
