SALEM, Or., Nov. 6. (Special.)
Miss Marguerite Flower. Oregon's
remarkable little blind songstress,
won new laurels for herself when she
sung on the opening night of the meet
ing of the State Federation of Women's
Clubs, Just closed in Salem. Her audi
ence was a most representative one.
composed of hundreds of clubwomen
irom all over the state and their hus
bands, families and friends.
Miss FJower was down on the nro-
gramme for the big aria. "Caro Nome,"
from the opera "Rigoletto." but the
audience would not be satisfied until
she had returned and consented to sing
several other numbers.
It is seldom that anv vnrnlisf li i

stration, the legislative hall rf th
State Capitol building certainly never

The clubwomen at Portland were par
ticularly pleased with Miss Flower's
Miss Flower is always a favnritn
with local audiences, her formal Dre-
sentation recital in June of this year
being one of the notable musical
events of the year in Salem. She has
also sung with much success in concert
in ureatD Jiiy. Albany, Woodburn
Dayton and other places in the state.
Tone and Expression Delicate.
Her voice is a soprano of marked
sweetness and delicacy of tone and ex
pression. Whether in the big numbers
from the operas or in the simpler
ueari songs, tne nute-IiKe tones an:
sustained throughout, her singing, like
wise, being characterized by the most
exquisite diction. Probably no one
nas sung tne songs by Carrie Jacobs
Bond more . artistically and. hearing
her in these compositions, one might
conclude .that the well-known Amer
ican song writer was a favorite witn
Miss Flower, but when she was asked
about This recently she replied: "Why,
no, I don't believe 1 really have any

appeal to me a great deal more than
others. There are, for instance, the
little luiiaDys and songs like them

sensations when appearing before a
large audience. "Well," she mused.
"I have a feeling that is almost in

Miss Flower Sigrhtlesa Sliiee Babe.
Miss Flower is just out of her teens
and has been sightless since she was
three days old. She was left mother
less when she vas 8, but the lack of
mother love since that time has been
made up as nearly as it possibly could
by that cf hundreds of friends who
have given her of their love and devo
tion, which is, no doubt, responsible
in a large measure for the development
of the necessary attributes of a good
When she war a few years old she
was placed in the Oregon State School
for the Blind, in Salem, and from this
institution she was later graduated.
Books, however, never possessed the
charm for her that music did and of
tentimes the more adruous duties
were slighted so that little verse could
be brought into existence.
A diary in Braille was kept of those
happy days, which makes a consider
able and readable volume. in it are
recorded happenings on the tlrst day
of school, as well as first impressions
of newly-made friends, happenings in
class, opinion of instructors and nu
merous accounts of affairs of the heart.
Heart of Visttora Always Won.
Little Marguerite always was a fa
vorite with her teachers, and her sun
ny, lovable ways never failed to win
for her a place in the hearts of all vis
itors to the institution. Those whose
duty it was to impart knowledge to
her active little brain were kept busy
reading fairy and folk stories to her
and just as soon as she had mastered
the raised characters on the miniature
squares of thin cardboard she was
reading for herself everything in the
school libiary that had been trans
lated Into this language.
Among these books was Mark
Twain's "The Prince and the Pauper. '
which so delighted htr that she read
and reread it and then, to express her
pleasure, sat down and wrote in a la
borious, childish scrawl to Americas
great humorist, asking him to please
write another book just like it.
That was :'n June. 1904, and It was
a long time before an -answer was re
ceived, as Mr. Twain's mail at that
time was being forwarded to Italy
When the reply did come It said:
"Dear Miss Marguerite: I will keep
the matter in mind and bye and bye
I bope I will see if I can manasre it.
Truly yours. MARK TWAIN."
v Letter la Treaanred.
The letter is preserved as one of Miss
Flower's choicest possessions and is
kept along with letters and congratu
latory messages from other friends all
over the United States.
Miss Flower always has had pro
nounced likes ani--ciislikes concerning
almost everything, including decided
ideas about her wearing apparel. "I
love to wear white, fluffy things," she
says, "and if my dresses must be col
ored I want them to be either pink,
light blue, yellow or lavender."
She has learned to appreciate color
by having the color of natural things
described to her and by being told of
the color combinations to be found in
the great out of doors. Her artistic
sense has been in this way developed
to a great degree and she is as sensi
tive about the harnioniousness of hen
frocks and hats with her own coloring
of brown hair, fair skin and blue eyes
as is the girl who is blessed with
Flowers give her the most exquisite
happiness and in Oregon's wonderful
rose gardens and midst its luxuriant
profusion of almost every other kind
of blossom she has plenty of material
to satisfy this love. She can name al
most every flower instantly by it3
smell and will tell one whether a rose '
is a red, pink, white or yellow one.
Asked how eh; does it, she explains:
jvaee, nuiiieway, ieei so warm
and velvety, while the white ones have
a cold and smoother texture, the others
Children Have Place In Affection.
Children also occupy a large place
in her affections and last Summer,
when the city was looking for a com
petent story teller for the public play
grounds, she was selected, the choice
proving a most happy one. Hundreds
of wide and sparkling eyes never left
the face of the little ligure in their
midst a child herself who recounted
for them wonderful tales, bringing to
them, as few were able to do, scenes
and events which belong to that realm
where grownups have no place.
Like all who are deprived of sight,
her memory is remarkably clear, so
that once something is explained to her
she rarely forgets it. Her method ot
learning songs is Interesting. Four
lines of a stanza are read to her by her
instructor, the singer repeating them
over after her until the complete selec
tion is memorized, short songs usually
requiring only 10 minutes. Tone
placement, breathing and the shaping
of the mouth are explained by having
the pupil place her hand over the
mouth and chest of her instructor.
Miss Flower's musical education ha3
been painstakingly perfected by Miss
Minnetta. Magers. Languages, musical
history and musical literature have
been given her the same as to any other
vocal student. The woman who has
undertaken this task has devoted years
of untiring and unvariable attention to
her protege, her work paralleling in
a manner that of Miss Macy for Miss
Personality la Winsome.
We all could learn much that is
worth while about cheerfulness and the
"wholesorre life" from this little op
timist, whose soul is so attuned to the
infinite that even the harsh noises of
the city are to her major melodies and
the ch inging scenes are living, pulsat
ing poems direct from God's own hand.
With an appealing, winsome person
ality, temperament and attractive per-,
son, brains and a refreshingly beautif
ful voice, everything in fact that is
desirable tut sight, the people of Sa
lem, who are, of course, the ones who
love her best, are predicting great
things tor this little songstress, for
she has said in one of her own bits of
There is a work for every hand.
For every loving heart.
And all who will may understand
Their own especial part.
And her "own especial part" seems
to be to charm with her voice and in
spire with a contagious optimism that
is peculiarly her own.
