"Lohengrin" proved itself every bit
as popular at the concert given by In
nes" Band at the Exposition last night,
as did "Parsifal" a week ago. The big
Auditorium was packed with Port
land's musical enthusiasts, who ex
pressed themselves as highly pleased
with the selections that Mr. Innes pro
duced from the great opera.
The marked popularity that attended
the "Parsifal" concert given last Sun
day night in the Auditorium so im
pressed Mr. Innes, that he finally be
came persuaded that a similar concert
of selections from "Lohengrin" would
be well received. Tne large audience
that assembled at the Auditorium last
night showed that his decision to pro
duce "Lohengrin" .met with popular
Great Enthusiasm Shown.
WJth the same enthusiasm that char
acterized the audience of a week ago,
those who desired to hear the music
assembled early, and long before S
o'clock the Auditorium was filled. A
constant stream of poople packed the
hallways, and the stairs, despite the
fact that the rain and mud made It very
disagreeable to be out of doors.
The first part of the programme con
tained several well-known selections,
such as scenes from "Cavalleria Rustl
cana," the "Evening Star" from "Tann
hauser" and the "Danse Macabre." Tho
last named is the production of one of
inp greatest living musicians, baint
Saens. Tnis picturesque composition
describes in unmistakable tones all
that its title. "The Dance of the Skel
etons," would imply. Tho clock strikes
the hour of midnight, the skeletons
are heard assembling for their ghastly
revelry, which continuing' with un
abated vigor until dawn, is abruptly
terminated by the crowing of the cock.
Second Part of Programme.
The second part of the programme
contained the selections from 'Lohen
grin," the last of Wagner's composi
tions that were Inscribed "Opera by
the composer. It is intimately asso
ciated in sentiment with his "Parsifal."
The "Vorsplel" was the first number
on the programme. Liszt regarded It
as "a sort of magic formula which, like
a mysterious initiation, prepares our
souls for the sight of unaccustomed
things and of a higher significance than
those of our terestrial life." It is an
interrupted development of the grail
motive of the opera, which at first
glimmers forth In an extremely high
register, and gradually increases in
volume through a steady crescendo to
a full climax, .and then dies away as
mysteriously as it came.
Both the "Vorsplel" and the wedding
scene brought round after round of ap
plause for the noted leader and his mu
sicians. "Elsa's Dream." aria for o
prano, was handled very cleverly by
Miss Emma Partridge. Paul Wessen
ger, one of Portland's well-known mu
sicians, took part in the programme
and was particularly well received.
Other numbers played were the "Pro
cession to the Cathedral." "The King J
Prayer" and "Verwandlungs."
Wednesday evening, in the Audito
rium, Mr. Innes will give his last con
cert An elaborate programme Is being
arranged for the band, which wil con
tain many well-known selections of In
terest to music lovers. Tonight in the
Auditorium, last week's "Parsifal" pro
gramme will be repeated by Mr. Innes.

PREACHERS AT THE FAIR
Rev. 31erle St. C. Wright Delivers
Through the inauguration of the San
day services at the Exposition the people
of Portland and the visitors to the Fair
have the rare opportunity of listening to
sermons delivered by the most learned
and eloquent ministers and religious stu
dents of America. This was exemplified
yesterday afternoon at the Auditorium
when Rev. Merle St, C. Wright, of the
Lennox-street Unitarian Church, of New
York City, preached a masterly and bril
liant sermon, the standard of which has
rarely ever been equaled In Portland, to
an Intensely interested and appreciative
gathering of rctigioup workers.
The audience, while net nearly as large
as It should have been upon the appear
ance In Portland of such a noted minister
as Dr. Wright, filled the lower
floor of the huge Auditorium. Those
who braved the inclement weather te at
tend the services were more than amply
repaid as the sermon so ably and forci
bly delivered by Dr. Wright, was
of great strength and made an impres
sion upon the listeners that will lari
for many days before It is erased by suc
ceeding memorable events. ,
Dr. Wright traveled from one ex
treme of the continent to the other for
the express purpose of carrying his re
ligious belief and love for humanity into
new fields. If awakening new spiritual
Impulses and causing preres of hlf au
dience to resolve to lead a more religious
and broader life, were his alms in Jour
neying across the continent, he can re
turn to his parsonage In New York with
the assurances that his trip was not with
Effort Is Appreciated.
That he accompHpned this was dear
ly evidenced upon the conclusion of the
services when men and women, old and
young. Incited upon grasping his hand
to tell him of the lasting impression that
had been forged upon their minds by
his powerful sermon. Dr. Wright
is not a spell-binder. He ppeaks calm
ly, without even a tinge of excitement,
but with alt seriousness and sincerity,
defining clearly and indisputably why the
religious llfo should be adopted and nus
tained by those who arc not Christians.
His thoughts, convictions and beliefs are
strength within themselves and set men
and women to thinking.
He acts not on the sympathies and
passione of his listeners but on the reason
and natural Individuality of broadmlnd
cd and unprejudiced people. Although a
man still young In year and in the very
prime of life. Dr. Wright ba been
eminently successful In his life's work.
He preached the funeral sermon for An
ton SeMl before an attendance of l
ipeople. Last month he preached the
anniversary sermon for the "May Meet
ings." in Boston to a congregation of sev
eral thousand people.
Compares Bible to Tree.
He took as his subject yesterday. "Some,
Intimations of the New Religion," "We
live In a crisis," said Dr. Wright
in the course of his sermon. "People are
agitated and ministers themselves have
stated that theology is on a decline, but
religion stands in the Krength of its
own spirit. The BIWe maybe compared
to a tree or a plant. It has foundation,
a root and a stem. Its branches keep
expanding and broadening and is a liv
ing and growing thing.
"Religion Is being purined. magnified
and renovated. To have your hand on
the pulse of the age. you should go back
to Its source and origin and follow there
-in their growth and expanrion. Put
your ear on the ground and you wHl un
derstand things that other men do not
s?e. We are coming to a time when we
will save our fellow bodies as well as
our own selves. You must see that your
relations in society are what they should
be and that the relation of your fellow
bodio in society are what they should
be. You must not work for the salva
tion of a privileged section of humanity
but for the salvation of the entire human
ity. That is the standard of the new
Rev, William S. Gilbert opened the
services at the Auditorium yesterday af

GIVE AWAY OREGON CHERRIES
Visitors to Horticultural Booth
One of the features of the Oregon Hor
ticultural exhibit in the Agricultural
building that Is attracting widespread
Interest is the daily distribution of fruit
from the exhibit booths. Last week
cherries of several varieties were given
to" ail those who visited the exhibit.
The cherries are received from the dif
ferent fruit-raising sections of Oregon,
and after they have been on exhibition
for a couple of days are given away,
their places to be taken by fresh ship
ments. The cherries are placed in a
large box Inside the booth and the visit
ors are invited to help themselves.
State Representative W. K. Newell, su
perintendent of the Oregon Horticultural
exhibit, is greatly delighted with the re
sults that have been obtained through the
distribution of fruit. He says the visit
ors from other states become Interested
when they examine the exhibit and are
very enthusiastic after they have eaten
of the cherries, as the flavor of the Ore
gon fruit is unexcelled. Hundreds of
people call at the exhibit each day. When
the visitors deslr.e they are presented
with a smalt box of cherries.
Several of he roost excellent shipments
of cherries were received from George
Cooper, of The Dalles. While the ex
hibit in very extensive at present. It will
be enlarged and made more complete dur
ing the Summer as- the different varieties
of fruit ripen so that they can be placed
on exhibition. Cherries and strawberries,
after they have been taken from the
vines for a few days, wilt decompose and
for this reason they cannot be kept on
exhibition for any great length of time.
Rather than have a lot of spoiled fruit.
Superintendent Newell distributes the
fruit before It shows the least signs of
Colic mad Diarrhoea.
Pains in the stomach, colic and diar

Wonderful Pictures in Galleries
at the Exposition.
MANY ARE WORLD-FAMOUS
Detailed Description of the Paint
ings "The Man With the Hoe."
Showing Made by American
Artists Is Excellent.
A resumption of attention te the arts
exhibit at the Exposition indicates "that
while a great deal of interest attaches
to the palatlngs in general. It is in Gal
lery B where It seems to center, as it Is
here that the majority of the artistic
gems are hung.
The cattle in No. 507, "September
Days," are excel lent, as are also the
sheep in No. 8E, "The Gray Day." The
landscape in each case is carefully paint
ed, but essentially tributary to the ani
malsthe tone in SO? is somewhat heavy.
The three corots. 127. HI and 7. must,
of course, be studied. The first and last
are small, and valuable chiefly as ex
amples of this one of the three great
painters of the Barbizon School. The sec
ond, HI, Is the well-known and often ex
hibited "Les Sanies." with Its masses of
dark willows, and he gleams of light
through and beyond them. In this gal
lery are hung the paintings which would
demand a long Journey to study them.
If there were no others on show, and
this fine Corot is the first. The two
"royon cattle pictures next claim notice.
"Jl and IK. By all means let them be
compared with the Carleton Wiggins. 110
and S7. It is a hard test, but the Ameri
can stands it well. No one will pass
Bennington's "Saint Valery la Caux."
135. or Cullen Yates' "Falling leaves and
misty sky." No. IX. one of the best land
scapes exhibited. The title tells Its tale
true and rcaltlftic. but with the poetry
of the closing year. On the opposite side
of this gallery are hung good examples
of groat masters. Before reaching the
Millet notice the dear skies and water
and the delicate buildings in Venice of
the Canaletto, No. 112.
The Man With the Hoe.
Now, the "Man With the Hoe." I. F.
Millet. A fresh study confirm previous
conviction that this is the saddest, the
most depressing, of the great pictures.
No word' in Edwin Markhara's poem is
too .strong. The beauty of the setting
the tranquillity of the evening sky. the
haze of the atmosphere enveloping land
scape and figure, the tender coloring all
fall to redeem the essential bentlshness.
and the 'hopclcseaees of the solitary man.
Near by are three beautiful landscapes to
restore the tone of one's mind. All three
repay study. John Crome (Old Croroe).
No. IIP. the "Bridge near Norwich." Ar
thur Dawson's "The Cross Road." No.
US. and Constable's "landscape." No.
US. We might Include Ben Foster's
"Dusky Pines." No. IK. In all the suc
cessful effort is to transfer and. in truth,
to poetize Nature, not the attempt to
glorify her. as In the many Impression
ist pictures we have passed. Another
landscape deserving Wgh praise is Ar
thur Dawson's "SIM Town. Lyme." No.
SK. and for similar qualities. A clever
head is that of "Anna ivarenlns." No.
11. by I. N. Marble. The small Whistler.
No. 171. Portrait of a Child, wilt be no
ticed simply for the name of the artist.
Apparently an early work, with no
Whistler qualities visible. John Sloan has
three figures. J. 1 and 2. which are
all. clever. The Rubens Madonna and
Child. No. IfrS. will attract attention for
the daring, almost brutal, brilliancy of the
painting, especially the flesh painting.
But the Irreverence of It all will, disgust
as much as the skill of the painter at
tracts. In this same gallery are hung
the Cuyp "Bull." No. JSS. and the Paul
Potter "Horses." No. 211 both well
known examples of the Dutch animal
painting. The Rousseau. No. 21. is a
poor specimen of this groat painter. The
same may be said of the I. W. Turner.
No. 212 a small suggestion of the great
picture of the same "Bay of Naples."
Gems In Gallery C.
Gallery C shows in No. 2St a beautiful
landscape of George Innea. But of the
six by this well known artist, Nos. 3K
and 365 must surely not be overlooked.
Of the five by William Chase. Nos. 25,
256. 3K. m and 23. the first is a land
scape about which nothing need be said.
Of the three figures see No. XS. "Edward
Stelchen." as a good example of this
master. In this gallery we have marked
for commendation No. 267. "Solitude."
by E. L Field; 2. "Autumn." by A. L
GroH: 27J. "Mending the Net." by F. V.
Du Mond. and especially No. 279. "The
Forest of Pines." by C. W. Eaton. This
last picture is among the first twelve of
the landscapes In the whole exhibit.
In Gallery D. notice the Indians of E.
L. Ceuse. the three. 312. 712 and 313. seem
of about equal merit and Interest. For a
picture which hurts the eye and Injures
Its neighbors, no one can help selng "Job
and His Friends." No. 345. Vhf It is
given so good a place is one of the myste
ries. Walter Nettleton is one of the best
landscape painters in the whole galleries.
Notice specially No. 319. "Early Snow
tall." and 371. a beautiful effect of snow
and reddish oak. leaves.
In Gallery E. Lewis Cohen has four, and
In F three pictures. Of them we prefer
No. 379. with its cool grays and greens of
very delicate trees. Janet Wheeler has a
gift for cotural, easy children, for which
see Nos. 392 and SIX Homer Wlnslow has
a fine coast scene in 395 of black rocks
and gleamy sea. In the same gallery. No.
4 shows us the well-known features of
C. E. S. Wood, by Alphonse Jongers. It
is an excellent likeness, and a pleasing
one. The prominent hand is rather dis
appointing. No. 121. "Plowing In Arca
dia." by Horatio Talker, must not be
passed. It bears study.
In Gallery F. the picture to the left of
the entracc that catches every eye Is the
daring "Girl with Peonies." by I. R. Wiles.
Notice the light effect on the silk of the
klmona and on the peonies. By way of
contrast take the Reception." by Tlssot.

has been a heavy task. Though modem
Americans so greatly predominate, yet
there are chough from other schools to

Editorial Reception 'Postponed.
Owing to the delayed arrival of the
members of the National Editorial As
sociation, the reception that-waa to have
been tendered to the visitors-at the New
York building this evening has been post
poned until tomorrow night.
The association excursionists were to
have arrived in Portland last night, and
today exercises were to have been held in
their honor, the day being known as
"National Editorial Association day" in
the Exposition grounds. Yesterday It was
announced that the ceremonies would be
postponed until tomorrow.
Tuesday's evening's reception will be
one of the prominent social events of
the Exposition, and hundreds of invita
tions are out.
Attendance Yesterday 7447.
The residents of Portland arc loyal to
the Exposition to such an extent that
they have established a new precedent
In local attendance, and yesterday there
was a total of 7M7 admissions to the
Fair in spite of the unfavorable weather.
While this figure Is away below the aver
age the Exposition officials were gen
uinely surprised at the attendance yes
terday, as they did not expect more than
2.(00 or 3,000 visitors.
The two concerts by Innes Band and
the Sunday services In the Auditorium
proved to be great drawing cards and
attracted hundreds of people who other
wise would not have attended the Ex
position. The Museum of Art was open
yesterday and all day was thronged with
people. The officials of the Exposition are
Lpf the opinion that In favorable weather
Sunday will prove to be one of the larg

CONVENTION IS CLOSED
GOOD ROADS MEETING COJIES
TO AX END.
Extensive Plans for Future Work
Along Lines Adopted by the
The National Good Roads Convention
closed Us work Saturday evening. The
adoption of a strong and more definite
constitution will place the affairs of the
association in better working shape. Many
representative and Interested delegates
attended the convention, some traveling
more than 4M0 mils. This Is most signifi
cant, and is a positive proof of the deep
and growiig Interest In the good roads
cause In the Nation.
The National Good Roads Association
really began Its work 15 years ago. It
has educated all sections of the United
States and held more than 10CO good roads
conventions. It has a membership of
nearly ).0. and Includes In Its dlrectory
the Governors of states. In 1200 It
adopted the goods roads special train
system, the first being Installed and op
crated over the Illinois Central Railway
between Chleago and New Orleans. Thes
trains have been successfully operated
on several of the leading railroad sys
tems. They are termed "good roads col
leges on wheels." They educate the farm
ers, road officials and all others in th-s
bast methods of building and maintaining
earth, gravel, macadam and oiled roads.
The association has already held 72 dis
trict, state and National conventions this
year. The chief object of holding the con
vention Is organization.
President Moore states that extensive
plans are maturing to extend the organi
zation Into alt districts which produce the
heaviest tonnage of agricultural products.
Several local convention will be held in
Oregon and other Western States before
the official National good roads special
returns East, The National Good Road
officials and experts will go to The Dalle
and hold a convention Tuesday. June 27.
Roseburg will hold a convention Thurs

Of Your Heart.
It is the engine that forces
the blood to every part of the
body; this blood conveys the
nourishment that makes flesh,
bone and muscle; it also car
ries off the worn-out particles.
If the heart flutters or palpi
tates, it is weak, and is work
ing imperfectly, so that the
body does not get this nourish
ment; it also fails to throw off
the impurities, and they re
main to poison the system.
If it is irregular, skips beats,
or is painful, the heart is prob
ably "leaky" and the circulation
poor. These conditions are
dangerous. You can make
your heart well, and keep it
so, with Dr. Miles Heart Cure,
which is a heart medicine and
tonic that strengthens tht
heart nerves and muscles.
