A large andience of music luting peo
ple attended tho piano lecital given by
Mrs. Will Owen Joneson Tuesday even

spect was tho extreme culture and
musical tasta of Mrs. Jones better shown

in which tonal effects were most artisti

Fire charm andTarantelle; the Vest wero

ba3 power and breadth in her playing,

apparent unconsciousness of technical
difficulties and sura mastery of tho keys

keys by her caressing lingers would
