THE WEEK'S REVIEW
A program of high order and unus
ual Interest was given on Monday
afternoon before the Matinee Musi
rale illustrating the Gypsy Element in
music. The program was arranged by
the third division assisted by Mr. Aug
ust Hagenow and Mr. Alexander Mer
ger and reflected great credit on the
leaders, Mrs. E. Lewis Baker and Miss
Knslgn. The stage was arranged with
brilliant colored Navajo blankets to
represent a gypsy camp ami a part of
the performers were dressed in gypsy
costume. A most pleasing feature of
the program was the group of songs
given by four young ladles who had
been drilled by Mrs. Ilaker. Their
singing showed a high degree of finish
and blending and gave a very vivid
picture of gypsy life. The scene from
Carmen given by Mrs. Kaker. assisted
by Miss Agnew and Mrs. Hart, also
deserves special mention and was gi-c-n
with true dramatic style and col
oring. The music throughout was very bril
liant. Mrs. Will Owen Jones played
a Liszt rhapsody in a most delightful
manner and the string numbers were
given with the same brilliant abandon,
which characterized the entire pro
gram. Miss Herrick, who appeared for
the firsttimebefore a Matinee Musicale
audience, played her solo and two ac
companiments with taste and expres
sion and Miss Murphy's songs were
charmingly rendered. The program:
