Overture to "The Mastersingers of
Nuremberg" Richard Wagner (1813-1883)
"The Mnstersingers," Wagner's one comic opera, was sketched as early as
1845, but was not finished till 1867. The Nuremberg fifteenth century guild of
the Mastersingers, with their pedantry, their pomposity and their intolerance,
furnished Wagner with fine material for satire, above all a s he saw in t h e m t h e
counterparts of the glum-faced conservatives in his own world ot music. In con-
trast he set t h e young lovers, Walther von Stolzing and Eva, daughter of t h e
goldsmith. There is a good deal of accurate history in Wagner's comedy, above
all in the characterization of the Mastersingers, and it is with their pompous
march t h a t t h e overture begins. The second theme belongs to t h e young l o v e r s ;
t h e third brings in the Mastersingers again. A fourth episode foreshadows t h e
famous song with which Walther wins the prize, and t h e o v e r t u r e concludes with
a Buperb song of triumph.

Symphony No. 1, in E Flat Major ("The Rustic

Wedding"), Opus 26 . Carl Goldmark (1830-1915)
I. Wedding March ; Variations: Moderato Molto
II. Serenade; Scherzo: Allegro Moderato Scherzando
III. In the Garden: Andante
IV. Rustic Dance: Allegro Molto
Carl Goldmark, son of a Jewish cantor, was born a t Kezthely, H u n g a r y ;
most of his early life was spent in the traditional battle against poverty, and it
was not until 1866, when his " S a k u n t a l a " overture was first performed in Vienna,
t h a t he won general recognition as a brilliant and extraordinarily efficient com-
poser. The "Rustic Wedding" symphony, or, as Goldmark himself preferred to
call it, symphonic poem, was composed in his piano-teaching days early in t h e
sixties; it did not come to performance until March 6, 1876, when it was given
• t Vienna, with instant success. Its wealth of melody, charm of imagination and
effectiveness in orchestration have established it as an international favorite.
The movements call for little comment beyond t h e information provided by Gold-
m a r k ' s sub-titles.

Elegy, for Strings

Peter Iljitsch Tschaikowsky (1840-1893)
This elegy, which is without opus number, was composed in memory of
Tschaikowsky's friend, T. W. Samarin, a loyal and ardent admirer of t h e com-
poser. The work has no special program other than t h e one indicated by its
title. I t is in G major. Andante non troppo, 4-4 time. Of its early history very
little is recorded, and it has been performed far less frequently t h a n most of
Tschaikowsky's other orchestral works.
Selections for French Horn Quartet
A r t h u r Edward Johnstone, in hiB booklet " I n s t r u m e n t s of t h e Modern Sym-
phony O r c h e s t r a " gives t h e following interesting information concerning t h e
French H o r n : The tone of t h e French Horn, except when forced and rendered
"braBsy" for t h e production of dramatic effects, is pure and noble, its tones blend-
ing as perfectly w i t h t h e wood-wind as with t h e b r a s s choir. T h e horn t h u s
forms a connecting link between these two sections of t h e orchestra. The horn is
of inestimable value, both as a melody and as a harmony instrument. Its soft notes
possess a remarkable pervading quality which is felt r a t h e r t h a n heard, while a
unison passage played by t h e four horns with which every symphony orchestra
ia provided, wi}} cut through the entire orchestral mass."
The French horn first came into prominence a t t h e beginning of the 18th cen-
t u r y when it was used to give hunting signals which accounts for the old French
name of t h e instrument. Cor du ChsBse, and the German name Waldhorn. These
early i n s t r u m e n t s were capable of only a few notes, technically called t h e "har-
monic series." In 17?0 these were added to by t h e discovery t h a t t h e gaps in
t h e scale could be filled by inserting t h e hand in t h e bell of t h e horn, t h u s alter-
ing t h e pitch. Improvements followed during t h e next fifty years, but it was not
until 1820 t h a t the present system of valves was invented which not only enable*
t h e performer to play in any key instantly, but which gave the horn a complete
chromatic scaie.

Cortege, from "The Queert of

Sheba" Charles Gounod (1818-1893)
Gounod's opera, "The Queen of Sheba" ("La Reioe de S a b a " ) , ^aa first p r o -
duced in 1862, at Paris, following " F a u s t " by three years. T h a t t h e story of
t h e . Queen of Sheba attracted t h e imagination of Gounod is not surprising. The
mystery and romance attaching to her appearance and mission were of a kind t o
inspire his muse, so full of warmth and responsive to color. But the librettist
w a s not equal t o t h e occasion, and t h e opera was a failure, though in London t h e
opera continued t o be given for quite a while in an English version, under t h e
name of " I r e n e . " This processional march, a coronation march, and two or three
of the vocal numbers, are all t h a t survive.
T h e cortege begins with a fanfare of t r u m p e t s , and is interrupted while t h e
g u e s t s offer their presents, and flower maidens s t r e w roses in the p a t h of t h e
queen. The march is then resumed and continues until the end of the scene.

has such a group of men met in this

Constitution. These men had become
familiar with the practical working of
free self-government during 150 years
of colonial life. They were not theo-

and it is living, for these men worked
with a knowledge of the character of a
material with which government has to
deal; that is to say human nature with
its multitudes of feelings and impulses
and passions and weaknesses.
But that is not all. These men did
not walk alone on that spring morning
into that Philadelphia convention.
There walked in with them the thou-
sands upon thousands of shadowy,
nameless persons, who had, through the
centuries, worked toward liberty and
order. There were those struggling
figures, who, through years of labor
and agony and sacrifice, had been work-
ing out the priceless practical prin-
ciples of Anglo-Saxon liberty.
And so the fathers of our Constitu-
tion embodied in that instrument the
spirit of the magna and the petition of
rights and the bill of rights and the
habeas corpus act, of all that made the
people of England great and an adap-
tion of those great principles to Amer-
ican life through the practical working
of 150 years of American government.
Then at the end of four months these
men, after discussing, debating and de-
liberating, brought forth the most
finished, polished and balanced rela-
tion between a people and their gov-
ernment that human mind has ever con-
reived. In the words of William Pitt
at the time, "It will be the wonder and
admiration of all future generations and
the model for all future constitutions."
Our constitution, the supreme law of
the land gave us a government with its
representatives elected at certain fixed
intervals with authority delegated to
three departments; the legislative, the
executive, and the judicial. But the
startling fact for the first time in the
•• of the world was that no one
department was supreme, that each de-
partment served as a check and a bal-
ance on he other, and the final su-
preme power was in the hands of the

The sermon, "Four Fingers and a
Thumb" delivered by Rev. Wheeler'

Wheeler said, "Whatsoever thy han
findeth to do, do it." He went on t
say that each of us has in our han
the tool of some trade, and that wha
ever it was we must use our mind on
it to do our best.

Lincoln McConnell, a Lecturer
for 2 0 Years. Delighted
Big Audience.

Lincoln McConnell, old-time chau-

tanq.ua lecturer, more than lived up to
bis advance press notices, when ue
spoke last night at the Chautauqua.
Mr. McConnell, who has been a po-
lice detective, lawyer, minister, spec-
ialist on mental deficiencies, and Chau-
tauqua speaker, talked for almost two
hours laBt night; but the large crowa
at the big tent a t Eighth and Kansas
avenne was as Interested during the
last part of his address as during the
early moments. Mr. McConnell is a
real humorist, with a real message.
"There are more people in Jail now
than at any previous time in the his-
tory of America," he declared. "And
there are more on the jail waiting list
tonight, that will be taken care of as
soon as accommodations are available,
or their criminal intentions are car-
ried out.
"Too many people in America have
the 'want its'," he stated. "And what
do they want? Why, they wafit what
they haven't got. They're not satis-
fied. They crave riches, when they
wouldn't know what to do with riches if
they had them. Their lnsatiuble
thirst for money or pleasure will never
be quenched.
"America is crazy In the car ques-
tion. We've got millions of cars, and
yet we haven't enough. I've got sev-
eral cars, and none of them are paid
"Too many women are driving
coupes who ought to be pushing baby
"You peopte in Kansas pray, 'Oh,
Lord, bring us a good wheat crop and
a good corn crop, and we'll get out or'
debt.' Oh, no, you wouldn't. Xou'd
sell the old Liz and buy a new car ana
get deeper into debt than ever.
"The richest man in your country is
not the man who can sign his name to
a check for the largest amount of
money, but the richest man 13 he who
can check on the love of his neigh-
bors for the greatest amount of
friendship and esteem.
"There are only three kinds of trou-
ble in the world: The trouble we have
bad, the trouble we are having, fir*
the troubles we will have.
"And I'll tell you how to forget your
troubles: Just put them in the same
"epartment of your mind that you tuck
way your preacher's text. In other
ords, just forget .'em.
"God built us to remember those
things we should remember, and to
forget those things we should forget,
lie gave us the faculty to select what
we should forget, or remember; and
even God can't compel ns to forget or
remember. That power lies within us
"But some people say, we can't for-
get the ugly things of life, the haunt-
ing memories that we would like to
forget; There's one remedy that I
know is effective. I'm not preachiiis;
when I say this. It is a proven fact,
and has been attested to even by
agnostics and scoffers. But if you
have those haunting, distressful, ugly,
vivid thoughts, you can forget them if
you will concentrate your mind directly
on Jesus Christ. His life is so beauti-
ful, so full of appeal, that all other
thinwt will vanish in His pi

your mental storehouse. This, is a
practical, proven process. Try if.

"The world is Just a mirror, and it

will give you back what you give it.
"America is facing one of the great-
est crisis in its history. The Ameri-
can home is in danger of disintegration.

America are adrift today—thrown up-
on the world from broken homes.

every six marriages, and as many more
would like to escape from the bounds
of matrimony as do. In other words,
one-third of the marriages in America
today end disastrously.
"This has its effect on the boys and
girls of those homes, and is mainly re-
sponsible for the fact that today more
than 60 per cent of the most heinous
and awful crimes are committed by
boys and girls under 23 years of age.
"More than fifty per cent of the
juveniles in the detention homes and
prisons today come from broken homes.
"Oh, yes, we should permit our chil-
dren to have fun, but it should be
wholesome fun. And we should be llv :
ing examples to them.
"How can you expect a child to be
law-respecting and law-abiding when
he sees his mother and father throw-
ing things at each other, cursing,
swearing and leading lives of unfaith-
fulness? It's not even practical. The
broken home is America's gre.v
"America is losing the meaning o
two words: Love and faith. This Iofl
is causing the shipwreck of tne cntir

previously had our brakes relined and the car looked ov

we got used to going down such s l i g h t d e c l e v i t i e s befor

we got t h r u . t h e various ranges of the Rocky Mountains

we drove across the G l o r i e t t a Mts. and over B i r d ' s R ye

in an old orchard and stayed there t h r e e and a h a l f day

Leaving Few "exioo we crossed into Arizona
(the land th8t God forgot)There we plowed thru mud for
five hundred miles.Fot ordinary mud hut bottomless
mud.STicky,slimy mud,the kind that pulls the life out
of a car.But we were never stuck once.
I'll say we had sure some time when fifty
miles out of Gallupxanr* XH the nearest postoffioe ,and
in the heart of the Favajo Indian Reserve.We were out
on the desert and I put on the power too quick and caus
ed a slight rupture of the clutch and vertrabra consist

sixteen days and had some experiences.The boys were in
their glory. The country wss wild enuf for anyone.The
only people we saw for days at a time were Indians.
Robert adn James went about with eolt revolvers strap-
ped on their hips and at night the wild oats and wolves
would howkl and oome up so olose to oir fire that wexws:
could see their eyes in the darkness.
Robert is a oraok shot and could drop them of
ten in the gray darkness, as the day was coming.Ww had
to go five miles for water and fifty for mail and had
to telegraph to K.C.Mo.for the new part. When it Came
we found they had sent the wrong one for my model of
While in Arizona we saw only one pretty place

and that was th. mountain country about Flagstaff.We

had some real sure"naff adventures in the mountains

west of there.But w i l l wait u n t i l we v i s i t you to t r y
to t e l l about them.
On the day a f t e r leaving Flags t a l l , w e were
caught in a h a i l storm while up 9000ft f t . i n the mount*
tains.The ground was covered a c t u a l l y 3" deep when i t
cessed-and we could not go on for fear of s l i d i n g off

In Arizona we had our only r e a l t r o u b l e . ITear

for J.D.Brown and h i s wife of Ashfork,Arizona,who went
to every extreme t o make our s t a y with them pleasant an

From Ash Fork we drove to the edge of the Mo-
jave Desert.dreaded by a l l tourists.Two hundred miles
across with nothing but sand and more sand and the boi3
ing wntftx sun.
We made the t r i p across and enjoyed the exper
ienoe.Night caught us 60 miles out and so we pitched

out t e n t under the b r i l l i a n t desert s t a r s , a n d with Ro-

b e r t on watch f o r r t h e f i r s t h a l f of th? night and my-

All night the wolves howled but everybody was used to
that long ago and paid no a t t e n t i o n .
The following dty we made a record run and
crossed the most rugged mountain ranges I have seen in

t r a v e l i n g thru 2000 miles of the Hockies in t wo t r i p s .

We decended into the Valley of the Big Colorado and
were soon at ITeedles .California .The following day we ix

cended into the Valley of the SantaAnna Siver ani into
a place s e m i - t r o p i c a l and to us,who had for days looked
only on sand and sage brush,extremely b e a u t i f u l .

smooth as your floor,we came to the town of San Berna4±

IK We camped in the midst of b e a u t i f u l foliage
at the municipal park by a mountain stream so c l e a r you
