filled with an enthused assemblage ot
music-lovers. In fact, the parlors of the

Mr. Cox and his earnest band of workers
as much as their work encouraged those
who want to sea this kind of musical effort
succeed. Tha orchestra played with a

marked by a good body of tone, aa a rule
fine Intonation, and much phrasing and
hading of a very professional nature. In
short, the organisation showed Itself to be

constantly In evidence. The playing of the
accompaniment to Mlsa McBrlde's solo waa
an astonishingly good piece of work for an
organisation composed almost entirely of
In the forte passages tha dash and verve
ot the organisation was splendid and the
rhythmic vitality waa compelling and In
