TO COMPOUND PRESCRIPTIONS ■ i ±- , jo, set out above, was ascertained by counting the number of councilmen in office at the time transaction occurs, and not the number elected or to which the municipality is entitled. In these cases, they claim that after Durham resigned there were only five members of the council and that three votes were a ma jority of five. Mr. Nelson received three yqtes aud the other two were cast for other parries, and the council decided that Nelson, having received q majority of all the members of the council was dply elected. In other words, the de fendants claimed that when the charter speaks of a majority of the council or members thereof, it means members ac tually in office, and that the seat that was vacant should not be counted. The other side claimed that iu determining how many councilmen constitute a ma jority of the council or members thereof, the court is required to hold that the number of councilmen is six, whether that number are in office or not at the ! time the transaction in question oc curred. The court h*-ld with the relator on this joint and decided that a major ity of the council or the members there- cf was four at all times, whether there were six members in office or only five, .¡X properly it takes time. It requires experience and a complete knowledge of drugs. It requires the druggist to have a large .variety of drugs—fresh •drugs.

In re*|>onse to a request from The Re porter for her impression of the perform ance of tlie great Paderewbki, Mrs. Annie Evenden, of the chair of music of Mc Minnville college, whose opinion all will regard as thoroughly competent, lias kindly given us the following expression : “A very large and brilliant audience greeted Paderewski on his first visit to Portland. He certainly received an ova tion such as never was tendered another pianist in that city. Paderewski is to my miud the greatest living artist. Of course there are others who can possibly equal him in tecnique, but not one has his wonderful poaer to make the piano sing. Some of his tones were merely breathed out, and yet could be beard perfectly in any part of the house. That in itself, I think, ranks hint first. Then again, no one can so completely cast a spell over his audience and hold them syiell-bound, as Paderewski does. His personal magnetism is very great, in fact his audience Beein almost hypnotized. During eaclt number we could almost hear a |>iu drop. His strength is phe nomenal, and yet his extreme delicacy of touch is equally as wonderful. He is an extremely nervous and sensitive man, but yet you can sec he has the most per fect control over himself. It is a study in itself to watch his face, for it expresses every emotion expressed by the muBic. The astonishing and beautiful effects he get* by his clever manipulation of the pedals, is a study to all pianists. Now, to speak of some of his numbers. His rendering of the celebrated ‘Waldstein’ sonata was a revelation to uh all. Those who are familiar with it will realize the greatness of the work, aud understand fully the almost unsurmountable diffi culties with which it is replete. It is an example of how technical brilliancy in the performer may be displayed without injuring the real musical aud poetical parts of it. It seemed no effort to hint, however, and 1 do not think that any one there that evening had " ever heard the Waldstein really played before. The great power that is needed in the ‘Alle gro con brio’ was brought out grandly, yet you realized that there was still more behind. H ib playing of Chopin’s funer al march showed his exquisite singing tones to perfection. Thero were a- num ber there who were not ashamed to shed a tear. There is a very pathetic little story attached to the march, aud Pade rewski played it with the mort intense feeling. It is acknowledged to be the most beautiful funeral inarch evtr writ ten. It was the Liszt Rhapsodie, though, that carried his audience by storm. He seemed in that number to throw away ti*control, and give vent to the wild and tumultuous feelings caused by the style of music he was playing. 1 certainly never heard it played so wonderfully be fore, uml I have heard at least six other great artists play it. The audience al most went wild at the finiah. It was the last number on the program. Another great charm with Padorew ski is, be ha* no mannerisms at the piano, and is per fectly quiet and self-poHse»sed. To stun him tip in a few words: ‘He is a real artist.' ” I.4FA VETTE.
