"It would be better for you to see

He decided that instead of "buying; the

Civic Orchestral Association Makes Wide Departure in Programme in Which 88 Musicians Will Play Wagner's
Pieces Exclusively.
NEW YORK, Aug. 5. (Special.)
While the definite and determined
aim of the Civic Orchestral Asso
ciation, Walter Henry Rothwell, con
ductor, has been to make the orches
tral music the all-important feature,
the soloists to be good artists in them
selves, with no regard for notoriety, a
wide departure will be made at the
Tuesday evening concert insofar as this
feature is concerned. Mme. Ciadskl
offered her services with no recompense
whatsoever if a considerable part of the
receipts are given to. a fund to care for
the children crippled by the ravages of
infantile paralysis which is afflicting
the Eastern cities.
The noted Brunnhilde of the Metro
politan Opera-House will co-operate
with Mr. Kothwell and his splendid or
chestra of 86 musicians in a programme
devoted entirely to Wagner. It is an
opportunity not often possible to Sum
mer visitors to New York to avail theni
celves of the chance to hear this great
singer, supported by one of the great
est orchestras that has ever dispensed
music in New York. Such, indeed, this
organization has become under the
steady rehearsings and playing with
Mr. Rothwell. The programme will
include the prelude to "Die Meister
singer." .the "Good Friday Spell," from
"Parsifal," the aria "Dich Theure
Halle," from "Tannhauser," roilowed
by the "Tannhauser" overture. Follow
ing the intermission will be the pre
lude to the first act and "Liebestod"
from "Tristan und Isolde" and the
"Isolde" narrative rrom the first act of
the same opera. The programme wixi
close with the "Ride of the Valkyries,"
from "Die Walkure."

The following excellently written and
highly amusing description of the ar
tists in the so-called "Convict Camp"

"press material" to those familiar with
much of the stuff that goes out as such.
"Strange to say. the distinguished mu
sicians sojourning at Seal Harbor, the
breezy Maine resort, are rather proud
of the title of 'The Convict Camp,'

artist colony.
"It all came about through Osslp
Gabrilowitsch's sudden and rash re
solve to shave his head, or rather to
have someone else, presumably, per
form that function. No sooner had the
Russian pianist appeared in public with
a pate like an incandescent jrlobe than
Leopold Stokovski. to the delight of
his friends and the grief of bis wife,
sacrificed his hair on the altar of com
fort. Then came Harold Bauer, who.
embolden by his friends' example, lost
no time In exchanging his bushy mane
for & set of closely cropped pin feath
ers. Other members of the colony,
equally shameless, promptly sank to
similar depths. In celebration of the
hair-shedding epidemic a touching dra
ma was enacted on an outing which all
of the cottagers enjoyed on a private
yacht. The authorship of the play
has not been made public, but the work
ltseir. as well as the manner of its pres
entation, was in all respects notable.
In the opening scene Mr. Gabrilo-
witsch was discovered lost in admira
tion over his newly discovered scalp,
when he was joined by Mr. Stokovski,
who. noting his confrere's transfor
mation, tossed his hat into the air and
proudly displayed his own temporary
baldness. A touching embrace was
interrupted by the entrance of Mr.
Bauer, hatted and haughty. He paused
spellbound, on spying his companions
in comfort, threw his hat to the winds
and joined them in a wild dance of ex-

bration appeared Carl Friedberg, with
locks flowing in the breeze. The three
shorn ones did not hesitate, but with
a single inspiration pounced upon the
newcomer, prepared to remove the of
fending hair by force. But Friedberg
was equal to the emergency. With a
graceful gesture he drew forth a con
tract showing that he was booked to
play during the Summer. The plea
that hair was absolutely essential to
his artistic success was sufficiently
convincing to stay the hands of the
vandals particularly as Josef Hof
mann tripped onto the stage at this
point, displaying unblushingly a com
plete head of hair trimmed merely to
its customary businesslike length. A
combined attack ensued, but again the
hairless trio was won over by elo
quence, Mr. Hofmann pleading delicate
health, the responsibilities of father
hood and the fact that his printed mat
ter bearing the normal likeness would
have to be revised if his likness were
altered. And then came Fritz Kreis-
ler. The violinist, with hair a-plenty,
came boldly on. and a third assault en
sued. But he likewise was equal to
the emergency. With tears in his eves
and with trembling hands he pointed
to his wounds, and a surge of sympa
thy in the breasts of the three savage
assailants saved the day. An enthu
siastic audience provided prolonged

some of the damage which the three
musicians so ruthlessly self-inflicted.

of an ambitious young toothbrush.
while Mr. Bauer, who spent several
days In New York last week, brought
with him a newly acquired natural

which ensued from the out-of-door per

Taaseled Handkerchiefs Are
Innovation From England.
Pancake Veil Another New Fad and
Pontine Coata Are All the Rase.
A FASHION which has originated in
XX England instead of in Paris
where most fashions hail from, is that
of tasseled handkerchiefs. A well
known British actor has been carrying
a tasseled mouchoir in the play "Stand
and Deliver" at His Majesty's Theater
in London and the vogue has grown so
speedily that tasseled k,erchiefs are
now displayed in most of the London
shops. The handkerchief is a square
of very fine linen with narrow hem
stitched edge; sometimes thera is
trimming of filet lace insertion outside
the narrow hem. At each corner is
small tassel of silk or fine linen
thread. A few of these fanciful ker
chiefs are already on view in Man
hattan shops.
The pancake veil suggests its own
"name. It is a big square veil of rather
coarse, open silk mesh, the corners
rounded rather than sharply right
angled and a graceful leaf pattern runs
all around the edge. In the exact
center of the big square is the "pan
cake." a circle of finer mesh with the
border design in miniature forming a
wreath around the circle. The "pan
cake" rests upon the crown of a sailor
shaped sport hat and the veil drapes it
self gracefully in all directions, drop
ping to the shoulders. Over a black
velvet crowned sailor one of these

talking with the older Indians that

trict may hear of many legends that
are but little known.
Every Indian tribe has Its historian.
The histories and stories were passed
from generation to generation by word
of mouth. Each tribe had a different
dialect. The names of the gods and
heroes were different. From The
Dalles down the Columbia, where the
Chinook and Clatsop dialects prevailed,
the Great Spirit was known as Tala
pus. while across the Columbia in
Southern Washington, where the Klick
itat dialect was supreme, the chief god
was called Saghalie.
White Man la Confidante.
In all the Pacific Northwest no man
has ever taken greater interest in the
legends of the Indians, among whom
his close friends have been numbered
by' the scores, ti:an K. L. Smith, who
removed 40 apo from Taroraa,
Wash., where h i had been Secretary of
Washington Territory, to Hood Kiver.
While he has retired from a life of
active business. Mr. Smith maintains an
office In a building owned by him in
this city and he may be found in his
office a part of every week day. In
fornier days the Indians of the region
came to ask his counsel and his plo
neer neighbors came to consult with
him on matters of business. Today the
few Indians left In the. district con
tinue to confide In Mr. Smith as to their
troubles, hopes and Joys. He will
ever remain their "Boston man" and
they and Mr. Smith often recall inci
dents of early times and talk over leg
endary history of the scenic region.

Klickitat Dlaleet Beantlfut.
Of all the 30 dialects of tribes with
which I have been familiar." says Mr.
Smith, "that of the Klickitats is most
beautiful. Their names for our points
of grandeur along the Columbia should
be preserved. I made an attempt at
one time to have the Smithsonian In
stitution collect the words of the lan
guage. A Catholic priest at Golden
dale was engaged for many years In
the task, but 1 have not heard of him
for several years. Rev. Waters, of the
Toppenish community, a full-blood
Indian, who has won marked recogni
tion as a Methodist minister, is perhaps
more familiar with the language than
any man in the Northwest."
During the early days of Hood River
history Mr. Smith was accustomed to
make long trips of exploration in the
neighboring mountains. Indians were
used as guides, and on these journeys
of penetration Into the wilds, while
others of the party would be asleep or
engaged in conversation. Mr. Smith
would be seated in seclusion at the foot
of some leviathan of the forest, hear
ing marvelous tales from his Indian
guide. Often Dr. T. L. Kllot. pastor
emeritus of the First Unitarian Church
of Portland, would accompany Mr.
Smith and other friends on these long
jaunts of investigation of the wilder
"I recall a time when Dr. Kllot and
I were on a trip of exploration at the
base of Mount Adams." says Mr. Smith.
"We have often laughed together since
at the philosophy of our guide. It was
in the evening and as we sat around
the campfire after supper I asked the
guide where an Indian went and what
he did after he died. The fellow, a
strapping and handsome buck, replied:
'I don't know. 1 find out after I get
there.' "
Chleftalnesa Turned Into Itork.
Just opposite Hood River, near White
Salmon, high on the side of the pre
cipitous Columbia Gorge, is a huge
dial-shaped rock. Most of the people
of Hood River have seen It and nave
wondered If it had a meaning. To the
Indian, according to the legends gath
ered by Mr. Smith, it had a significant
meaning. The great rock is Waupash,
a mighty chiftainess of the White Sal
man Indians in early days. The Indian
woman was proud of her people and
was zealous In her protection of them.
For many days Waupash had seen
Spelyai, the next of the gods in au
thority to Saghalie, the chief deity,
prowling over her beloved hills. She
accosted him one morning as he came
up from the Columbia and ordered him
t,o leave the region and not Miow him
self there again, for she feared that he
meant harm to her tribe. Now this was
no way to address a god, and Spelyai.
angered beyond reason, cast a spell
over the woman and turned her into
the great rock and she sits there on the
great gorge and watches till this day.
The legend that has come to Mr.
Smith about Oneonta Fails, known now
for the most part as Horsetail Falls.
Is somewhat different from other leg
endary history.
Far back In the old grandfathers'
day, according to the story, there were
two handsome Indian chiefs who tell
in love wish a beautiful maiden. The
men fought over the girl, who by her
coquettish ways angered th-a Great
Spirit as did the men. and to punish
them, one of the chiefs was turned into
Rooster Rock and the other Into Castle
Rock. The girl was transformed into
Oneonta Falls. The great stream of
water Is supposed to represent her hair,
which ever streams out from the great
barrier of rocks over which she is try
ing to climb.
Just beyond the Hood River County
line as one of Mr. Smith's old Indian
tt lends has told him, in the J alia of the
Widow's Tears. A tiny stream dashes
over the top of the high canyon and Is
soon lost In spray. "The Indians called
It the Widow's Tears." said Mr. Smith,
"because Is disappeared so quickly."
one or the most beautiful of all the
legends told by Mr. Smith is that con
nected with Memalooie Island, the In
dian burying ground near the middle
of the Columbia's stream Just west cf
L-.e. Since time immemorial the In
dians have placed their dead on the
Island. The bones of thousands of war
riors, men and women have bleached
and decayed In the sand there. For-
erly the Indians visited the tslan.l.
The legend explains tho red men have
ceased to go to Memaloose except to
deposit the bodies of relatives whose
souls have passed c.n to the Happy
Hunting Grounds.
In ancient days the Indians were ac
customed to assemble In large numbers
at Wlshram. a village Just opposite The
Dalles on the Washington side of the
Columbia. To one of the gatherings
came a handsome young chief, as per
fectly formed as Apollo, and a maiden.
the daughter of a cnief. whose beauty
was known throughout the land. The
girl was wooed by the handsome young
man and the two were wed.

This young man arfd woman made a

bank of K. G. Younir & Co. alone has
deposits aggregating almost $400,000.
In the magnitude of Its business this
bank is unique among the small-town
banks of the Northwest. The Oregon
Almanac does not show a bank in any
town twice the size with as great de
