COMING CONCERT BY FAMOUS PIANIST
Harold Bauer Will Be Heard October 11th Direction Lois Steers-Wynn Coman
REFERRING to the unprecedented suc
cess In thla country of Harold Bauer,
the famous pianist, announced to give
a recital here October 11, Philip Hale,
the -well-known critic, wrote Tn the Mu
"Occasionally a pianist comes to Ameri
ca without flourish of trumpets, beating
of drums and general alarm without. He
comes, is heard and conquers by the dis
play of art and temperament. Such a
pianist Is Harold Bauer.
"Mr. Bauer is not a man whose life is
. enwrapped in legendary mists. The story
of his career is a simple tale of inde
fatigable, conscientious work. He was
born in England in 1873, of mixed pa
rentage: his father was a German by
birth; his mother English. As a child he
showed musical instinct, and he began
to play as a violinist. He played in
public when he -was 9 years old. Although
he had studied the piano, he did not
dream of a career as a piano virtuoso
until Paderewskl heard him and urged
him to devote himself exclusively to tho
-It was In 1892 that Mr. Bauer went to
Paris to study with PaderwskL No doubt
the latter was of assistance to him, but
Mr. Bauer in a great measure is self
taught. A man of sensitive, receptive,
analytical mind, of liberal knowledge and
shrewd reflection, he worked out his own
salvation. In 1893 he made his debut as a
pianist in Paris, and for the last eight
years he has called that, city his home;
but he has traveled -extensively and given
concerts in Germany, Spain, The Nether
lands, Austria, Russia, Sweden and other
countries. His flrst appearance in America
was at Boston, December 1. 1900. when he
played with the Symphony Orchestra,
Brahms Concerto in F minor."

PRAGUE, Austria, Sept. IS. Marie
Hall, the English viollnlste, has been
spending a fortnight-in Prague, paying a
visit to old friends here prior to the open
" ing of the concert season. Miss Hall, af
ter leaving here, will give two concerts
in England, and will then sail for Amer
ica. The story of Marie Hall is a romantic
one. Tears ago this young girl, who is
now acclaimed as one of the leading vio
linists, was a poor child, wandering with
her father, a harpist, through the streets
of England's largo cities, collecting the
coins which were carelessly tossed to her.
How little those people who threw their
pennies dreamed that the day would
come when they would eagerly give dol
lars to hear her play!
Little Mario was born in ICewcastle,
April 8, 1884. When but a baby she
showed a keen taste for music, and often
when her father and his friends were
playing she would steal from her bed and
sit on the stairs listening, regardless of
the cold. Noticing this, her father taught
her to play the violin, and in every city
they visited the child attracted attention.
Unfortunately, Mr. Hall was a nomad by
nature; he could never stay In one place;
tho spirit of restlessness was in his blood.
At one time he held the position of
harpist with the Carl Rosa Opera Com
pany, but did not keep it long. When
Marie and her father were in Birming
ham, Max MoBsel, of the Birmingham
School of Music, gave tho -girl lessons
for some time, and afterward WilhelmJ
gave her lessons in London. While in
London, Miss Hall, then only 15 years old,
won a tuition scholarship at the
Royal "Academy of Music, but as
her father could not provide means
for her support, she was un
able to avail herself of it. Can anything
more disappointing. . than this be.Jmag
ined? To win a scholarship and- then "be
unabla to take advantage of it because
one's parents wore-'s lxor! What a blow
It must have been to the talented girl!
But, after all; late had some good things
in store for her.
Bristol seems to have been the next
place where the Hall family took, up Its
residence, and it was .here that events
occurred which ended in giving Mario
Hall's genius the opportunity for which it
was destined. 'Some musical enthusiasts,
becoming Interested In the young girl, of
fered to bear the expense of a thorough
education. It was found that the father
and mother and three children all
younger than Marie were in poverty,
sometimes In want of the necessaries of
life. Notwithstanding this, there was
much difllculty in getting the father to
consent to part from his daughter, until
it was pointed out to him that she would
afterwards no doubt be able to provide
for herself and also to contribute to his
support At last he consented to sign an
agreement to leave his daughter in charge
of others for three years. Marie was
taken to London, where she was placed
under Johann Kruso for violin lessons,
and other teachers for German and
French. Later Miss Hall, already an ar
tist, came to Prague, where she studied
for a short time in the Conservatoire.
It is said that she practiced regularly ten
hours a day. No wonder the technique Js
there, but, sad to say, temperament is

No one who has not actually accompanied
an orchestra on one of Its concert tours can
form the- least idea of the fatigues and hard
ahlps of such- trips. But few American cltlca
can afford more than one orchestral concert at
a time, and usually a traveling orchestra has
to play every night In a different town. And
even thorn places which can support one con
cert are so far apart that the orchestra must
travel roost or the time between It nightly
performances. ays Mrs. Theodore Thomas,
widow of the emlneat orchestral conductor.
Sometimes the tired musicians must go to the
train immediately af(er the concert at others
they must rout out of bed at 5 or 0 in the
morning. The railroads they travel over are
generally-rough branch roads, furnished with
dirty. Ill-smelling cars, and the only food ob
tainable Is often too poor to at When they
do not travel at night, they have to put up
with any kind of hotel the manager can make
a cheap contract with and often the hotels
are even wors than the cars. Under such
circumstances It is all the musicians can
manage to keep well enough to perform their
cuty as ror a high standard of art le tic work.
It is nearly Impossible.
Probably a great hymn never had a. more
humble origin than "Onward. Christian Sol
diers," which Is one of the most popular of
our modern hymns. In the October Deline
ator Allan Sutherland writes: "A great
school festival was to be held In a Yorkshire
village on Whit-Monday. 1SC3. and tho
scholars of Horbury Bridge School, over
which Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould was curate,
were invited to attend. As the place of. the
celebration was some distance away, the,
minister thought it would be an excellent
plan to have his scholars march to the sing
ing of an appropriate and stirring hymn.
Fortunately for .our hymnology. he could'
find nothing in his song bocks suitable for
such ah occasion, so from sheer necessity
he sat down on the' Saturday evening pre
ceding - the celebration and composed thla
great processional hymn, little dreaming
that he had produced that which would be
world-wide In its usefulness and make his
name a household word. Baring-Gould, a
minister of tho Church of England. Is an
authority on many subjects, and is a vol
uminous writer, having published nearly 100
volumes. In 20 years, between 1S70 and
IKK), ho Issued no less than 43 books. 10 of
which were novels. During the next six
years he published 17 novels. A number of
bis works have passed through several edi
tions. Tho few lines hurriedly composed on
a Saturday evening as a marching song for
a band of little children will doubtless give
to his name greater fame than all the books
he has ever written.

Mr. Montelth has made himself a favorite by his unusual musical ability,
chief among which is his splendid 'baritone voice and his agreeable choice
of h!gh-clas3 songs. Born at Lewlston, Idaho, Mr. Montelth is the great
nephew of the . famous Dr. Marcus Whitman, and a grandson of Dr. W. J.
Montelth. who founded Albany College Institute, Albany. Or. Claire Mon

nearly time for closing; so we cannot lin
ger. In gallery F let U3 noto especially
the work of William Sartaln, of Leonard
Ochtman, of Henry B. Snell and of John
W. Alexander and Robert B. Brandcgee.
Mr. Sartaln's reserved and refined style
are quite individual to himself. He gives
one a zenso- of power and of repose, of
fitness, of great beauty In color. He is a
superb draughtsman. Leonard Ochtman's
canvases are the admiration of alL Some

all praise. His other numbers are "In the
Uplands" (457). "Frosty Morning" (451),
"Autumn Days." (543), "November Morn
ing" (544). arid "Winter Afternoon" (555).
It would be a pleasure to point out the
excellencies of theso pictures, but they
speak clearly for themselves!. Henry B.
Snell's Cornish Coast pictures are very
strong in handling, and are so unusual In
subject they attract much attention. John
W, Alexander's llfo story is most roman
tic, and so one is not surprised to see
such deeply thoughtful, poetic work as
his "Memories" (459), two beautiful female
figures, classic in drawing and conven
tional coloring, symbolic in sentiment,
the rift In the clouds so fitting to tho
subject a rift in present thought tho
heaviness of tho clouds and the closed
eyes of the scml-recllnlng figure suggest
ing the powerful emotions aroused by the
memories. Robert Brandcgee'g portrait
work is of superior merit. He has "Por
trait of a Lady" (400), which Is a portrait
of the founder of the school for girls at
Farmlngton. Conn:, so celebrated for
many a year; "Mrs. Montague Flagg"
(4S6), and "The Wanderer" (504), one of
those faces that stir one to thought. All
of .these works possess a life-like realism.
Lewis Cohen and Carleton Wiggins have
particularly fine landscape work, the lat
ter with cattle as well. Helen Savler Du
Mond has a beautiful and very delicately
handled landscape. "Les Martlgues" (505).
George H. Bogert has a magnificent "Af
terglow" (499). Louis Paul Deroar has a
superb canvas, "Haystacks, Moonlight"
(491). W. Granville Smith has "The Re
turn" (4S0). and "The Golden Hour" (592),
In G, very lovely subject and handling,
while there is one of the remarkable can.
vases by James Joseph Jacque TIssot, tne
"Reception" (517), In which his grasp of
character, portrayal of life, massed move
ment and beauty of drawing and coloring
are splendidly shown.

out of date and with a laugh pass on!
They lose much.
Many Beautiful Landscapes.
Wo now come to the last room, though
we did wish to linger over Ben Foster's
fine work and others. J. Alden Wclr has
some beautiful landscapes, as has Charles
Warren Eaton and Walter L. Palmer.
Blrge Harrison's "Afterglow" (527) is
simply wonderful In the violet light cast
over the snow on the ground and house
tops on the hills across the bay, and the
deeply-furrowed road. We quite agreo

a silver medal at the Louisiana Purchase
Exposition yast year. Then we cannot
pass the admirable canvas of B. J. Blom
mer"s, "Shrimp Fishers at Schevenlngen"
(ESS), the exquisite sea. the sturdy chll-
dren. the sky, even the detail of the bas
ket, are perfect. We are not surprised
to hear of the many gold medals he has
received, and apropos of medals, our
American artist. Wlnslow Homer, has the
distinction of having received gold medals i
only, many of. thess falling to his share
and this is all the more remarkable as
he is mainly self-taught. Boston has oc

Arab Scene" (503) must not be forgotten
tor they are of unusual merit, as Is the
very fino small canvas, "En Vedette." by
Louls Emlle Benasslt (557), In which the
perfection of drawing of horse3 and men
and the rich, clear coloring produce a
most rare result. Arthur B. Davies has
some of his strikingly original symbolic
work Id ese four galleries we have been
bUUUl, fUlUl V.IIUIU3 lWI, I
(336), "Tho Wish" (340). "Newfoundland
Coast" (341). "The Source" (382), and
"Psyche" (571). Of these, the most grace
ful In drawing and coloring are "The
Source" and "Psyche." A, head by Franz
Lenbach Is to" be seen In gallery G. and
though It cannot be called more than a
sketch, it Is quite remarkable In pure and
delicate lines and In Its character por
trayal. It Is numbered G06. As Lenbach
died In Munich last year, anything by him
acquires great value. Before leaving the
paintings wo may bo excused for linger
ing, lovingly over Blrge Harrison's "Early
Lamplight" (594), for the dear, homely
little country houses and the road wind
ing gently up the hill appeal to us as If
wo knew the place and as if the lamp had
been placed In tho window because wo
were expected on that Httlo country road.
Do we not all cherish loving memories of
Just such a place? And Is not that why
so many visitors like to cast a parting
glance at that canvas? I suspect It
makes them think of the old folks at
Art Photogrnphs Admitted.
We would not be dealing fairly to ls
suo forth without at least oKlancc at
the 25 excellent examples oc art pho
tography. These were carefully se
lected by a Jury of artists, and are no
table for the way in which the familiar
medium of photography (once consid
ered a mechanical process only) has
been made to display all the high-art
principles of light and shade, soft con
tours and harmonies, planes of distance
and symbolism- It would seem invidi
ous to name one above another, but
special attention might be called to the
delicacy of "Marine" (7). to the por
trait of Mrs. Julia Ward Howe (14), In
which all suggestion of the old-fasjh-loned
hard, shiny photograph is hap
pily lacking, and "Rebecca" (20). an
exquisite bit of pose and contrast of
Miniatures In Ivory.
as we turn to leave the galleries our
gaze falls on a brilliantly lighted' case
In the middle of gallery F, and on ap
proaching we find some of tho most
exquisite miniatures on ivory it has
been our pleasure to sec for many a
day. Laura. Coombs Hills, of Boston,
who stands at the head of miniature
art!rs in our country, has four won
derfully fine things "Fire Opal" (3).
a girl with opalescent tints. In her fair
skin, and brilliant red hair; "Portrait
of Mrs. M. S. Bernhelmcr" (7). In "which
the textures of fur, feather, lace heavy
and delicate are ns cleverly' handled
as the flesh tints; "The Red Flower"
(12), a young woman in costume of
our great-grandmother's day. In which
the red dress, ribbons on the great
straw hat, etc., are delicately done and
much strong character brought out;
then "Persls Blair" (16), one of the
quaintest, sweetest little figures one
could see in real life or In paint. Mrs.
M. Lesley Bush-Brown has a fine little
head, "The Red Cap" (13), and two
others near, also "The Opera Coat'"
(18). very dainty, and a portrait of a
gentleman which suggests the old-time
manner of miniature painting most of
all. Margaret Kendall has some sweet
children's figures, to which she gave
landscape settings as "Spirit of tho
Wood" (9), "In the fBrook" (1) and
"Bruno and, Hi3 Mistress" (8). girl and
brown pony. Mrs. Helen Savler Du
Mond is also represented here by three
heads, 4. 5. S, of which "Margaret" (6)
is especially beautiful In freshness and
