Excellency in Piano Work
in Sa.n Francisco.
Miss Eu la I'.oward, who gave a re
cital In Steiuway hall, San Francisco,
February 25, baa made for herself a
prominent place among the musicians
of tho Bay city if we may judge from
the press notices, all of which speak of
her in the highest of terms. 1 We
take pleasure iu quoting from a num
ber of the San Francisco papers :
Bulletin "Miss Eula Howard as
tonished and delighted a large
audience at Steinway hall Thursday.
Miss Howard is a young girl whose
home is iu Grants Pass, Ol. A year
aud a half ago all her dreams ot what
musio might be were evolved from
her own couseicosness, for she had
received only tho most primitive sort
of instruction and had never heard
unoyiie play the piano better than she
could herself. Now she has bad 10
months of enlightened instruction,
has listened (with a pleasure thut'is
giveu to few mortals) to musio as iu
terprted by artists, and has applied
herself so diligently to the work she
has chosen for herself, that she is
able to rouse a remarkable enthusiasm
whenever she plays for anynue. Her
playing is called 'original,' her ex
pression is beautiful and delicate.
Here technic is clnetly noticeable for
tho finger-work, which is mnrvelonsly
dainty, delicate aud perfect. She
was repeatedly encored by her en
" Two numbers on the program which
the nndienco especially enjoyed and
which were repeated were the 'Ich
liebo riieh,' by Grieg, and 'The
Lady of Shalott," by Albert Elkua.
'ilif latter appealed strongly to the
uiulicnce, Miss Howard playing it
"By her delightful Interpretation of
art and her devotion to it, as well
as by her sui sliiny personality, little
Miss Howard has eudeared herself to
a large circle of friends iu Sail Fran
cisco. She is a dearly beloved mem
ber of thn Mansfeldt Club, named for
her instructor, Hugo Mansfeldt, aud
tho other members of that organiza
tion acted as ushers and attendants at
this recital. "
Chronicle "Miss Euln Howard, a
young girl pianist of unusual promiso,
was presented to tho public last even
ing in concert by her instructor,
Hugo Mansfeldt, at Stoiuway Hall.
This attractive littln maid reudured a
programme of dilllcult compositions
of varied moods not only with care
ful and notable technique, but with
powers of interpretation seldom found
m a musician of tier ago. J ho 0cu
itig number, Schumann's 'Davids
buendlertaenze, " was one of such
entirely distinct movements as showed
at once tho young artist's power of
"One of the most interesting and
dainty musical bits on tho pro
gramme was Albert I. Elkus' 'Lady
of Shalott,' suggested by Tennyson's
poem. it was mil or dreamy sugges
tion and the sentimental romance in
melody so charmed the audience and
was so gracefully and lightsomely
plnved bv Miss Howard, that compo
sition aud pianist were encored."
Town Talk "On, Thursday even
ing, February 2.", Mr. Hugo Mansfeldt
pnsentrd bis young pnpil, Eula
Howard, in a piano recital nt Stein
way ball. It is loss than two years
siuco Miss Howard camo to San rrau-
cisco from her homo in Oregon to
pursue her musical studies, aud her
progress has been truly remarkable.
Her technical achievements alone are
snlllcieut to arouse enthusiasm, but
the greatest cbaim of her playing
consists iu a rare and beautiful indi
viduality that lends an indescriba
ble piiuaucy to her rendition of cer
tain com osit Ions, as for instance the
' Puvidsbuendlertaen.o' of Schn
niiinn, her playing of which is some
what reminiscent of Do I'aehnmnn,
the only pianist who has played the

The littln fivo year old daughter of
Mr. at.d Mrs. E. W. Smith was very
badly ounied on Tuesday evening.
Mrs. Smith was at a store house some
50 feet t'istant from the dwelling
where tho child was playing on the

way was ignited from tho firo iu tho
room. Attracted by tho child's
screams, tho mother rushed to the
rescue but the child was terribly
burned ubout the limbs and lower
part of the body belorn the H'o could
be smothered. Her present condition
is serious. Mr. and Mrs. Smith are
residents of Frovolt, whero ho is

Richard, the five year old sou of
Mr. nnd Mrs. II. V. Meade, was the
ci utral figure Sunday evening in an
accident that might easily have been
mores, rious than it was. He went
out of the house and in a very few
uiinuti s Boimds of woe attracted the
attention of bis ninthc. She met him
r turning to the house with face cov
ered with blood from a gash nil his
forehead, caused by a kick from a
horse. Upon being tjni stioned, ho ad
mitt'd that he had pulh d the horse's
tail and pulled it hard. Thn cut was
quite a bud one but fortunately there
was no injury to the skull
