Tho commoncomont concerl of tho
Nebraska WeBloyan University Con
servatory of Music occurred on Mondny
evening at tho Funko opera houso. An
interesting program was woll rendered.
Tho Philharmonic orchestra undor tho
baton of Profossor Oron E. Locke, dir
ector of tho conservatory, played three
numbers, besides accompanying a "ocnl
solo and a pianoforto concerto. Tho
orchestral uccompanimonts woro un
usually responsive to Mr. Locke's wishes
and worthy of special montion, as thoy
woro at all times secondary to tho work
of tho soloists and vory sympathetic.
Miss Mabel E. Vincent, tho pobb ssor of
a mezzwoprano voico of go3d quality
and modorato power, displayed in hor
solo tho careful training of a conscien
tious teachor. A duo played by Misses
Aura Hitchcock and Winifred Warren
was a good piece of concerted work, the
two instruments sounding as one. The
Wosleyan glee club was encored. Miss
McPherrin daBhed oft MoezkowBki's
tarantello in good style. Mrs. Anna E.
Van Skike is a very promising singer.
She sang an operatic selection with the
orchestra intelligently, and displayed
considerable dramatic fooling. MiBa
Foristall has genuine talent, Her
technique is clear and she brought from
the piano a beautiful pearly tone that
many older playera might envy. Hor
interpolation of tho Chopin concerto
was thoughtful and satisfying. Mr.
Farmer us usual pleaBPd bis audience
and was recalled. Miss Fullor, a post
graduate student, played Liszt's second
rhappodie, and brought out well the
beauty of the composition. Miss Smith,
a mombor of the faculty played tho ac
companiments in a thoroughly satis
factory manner. Ihe large attendance
at the concert attested tho interest felt
in thi9 large and growing school and the
hoarty applause showed appreciation.
Professor Locke and his efficient corps
of teachers are doing excellent work and
tho people of University Place and of
tho state have good reason for the pride
which they feel in tho Wesleyan con
servatory. The graduates who did not
appear on ttm program had given pre

Tho commoncomont concert of the
University School of Music occurred on
Tuesday night at tho Oliver. A packed
houBo greoted Mrs. Raymond and her
chorus ot a hundred and twenty-tive
singers. "Tho Crusadera," a beautiful
cantata by Neils Gade was presented.
It haB been through tho earnest efforts
of Mrs. Raymond that Lincoln peoplo
have been permitted to hear the com
positions of tho great composers. The
chorus and soloists wero ably supported
by tho Philharmonic orchestra. Tho
soloists woro Miss Parthunia Bowman of
Omaha, soprano; Mr. Holmes Cowper of
Chicago, tenor and Mr. Sidnoy P. Biden
of Chicago, baritone.
Miss Bowman was suffering from an
attack of laryngitis and Btago fright,
which makes an estimate ot her voice
impossible. Mr. Cowper took tho tonor
solos with tunofulueBB and finish. He
is a favorite here.
Mr. Biden's fine voico aroused an en
thusiasm which haB not yet subided.
Ho sings with great style and finish.
Tho work of the chorus was smooth and
oven and tho parts wore well balanced.
The concert was under the general su
pervision of Direcloc Kimball, to whom
the city owes much for his efforts in be
half of music. During his residence
here Mr. Kimball has brought many
groat artists to Lincoln running great
financial risks which othors had not tha
courage to incur, besides giving a large
number of really good concerts and re
citals by members of his faculty and
his advanced students. Mr. August
Hagonow was tho loader of the or
chestra, and Mrs Will Owen Jones pre
sided at tbo piano.
Power or it Pound of Co.U.
A curious and interesting calculation
has been made on the dynamic power
of coal. From 'this wo learn that a
single pound of good steam coal has
within It dynamic power equal to the
work of ono man for one day. Three
tonH of the same coal represent a man's
labor for a period of twenty years, and
one square mllo of a seam of coal, hav
ing a depth of four feet only, repre
sents as much work as 1,000,000 men
can perform in twenty years. Such
calculations as tho above ir.r,y servo
to remind us how valuable a commod
ity coal really is.
