1. jfatr Ellen, v Il5a.t Brucb
(Geibel.)
Baritone Solo.
May God in His mercy be good to us now,
What boots it to shrink from dying No bread to sustain us the long day through,
No shot to the foeman replying: But pray for rescue, and that right soon,
To come to our leaguer"d tower; Though yonder the morning be low'ring red,
There's Death in the sunset hour.
Chorus.
Lord Edward spoke; downhearted and sad
His gallant veterans staj'ed; Fair Ellen leant on a cannon near,
In tartan plaid arrayed. There's e'en a spell on the bonny face,
The lost look heavenward turning, And straightway like to a wraith she rose,
Her eyne all darksome burning.
Sophano Solo.
41 O haste ye, haste to the rampart high,
Look out i' the misty gloaming Methought I heard in the distance far
The march, the Campbells coming. Oh list to the rolling sound of drums,
The Pibroch I hear them playing, We come for the sake of our olden troth,' Oh list what the breezes are saying."
Baritone Solo.
Ah, Maiden, I ween thou art sore distraught,
Nought has thou seen or heard Save deep blue sky, and yellow sand, And dele reeds by breezes stirred.
Chorus.
And the sun rose to his midday height, And the sun passed over the heaven,
And nearer and nearer the last hour came, And sadly the farewell was given.
Fair Ellen stood with a fixed look, And brightly her eyes were aglowing:
Soprano Solo.
"The Campbells are coming, I told you true,
I hear the bugle blowing ! The Pibroch is borne adown the wind,
The tones on the breezes quiver, 'Neath the tread of battalions that hurry along, Afar the plains do shiver."
Baritone Solo.
Ah, Maiden, we listen and listen in vain,
And fast the hours are flying, The breach is wide and the storm is nigh,
There's Honor, Honor in dying. Farewell then wife and child at home!
And the Highland lochs and the heather! And now for the last time God speed the shot,
Let your swords be unsheathed together.
Chorus.
And the volley rang, and the fight was hot, And smoke hung thickly before them,
The colors droop'd but Fair Ellen rose, And forward right boldly she bore them.
Soprano Solo.
" Oh stay, oh stay, 'tis the pipes I hear, The sound draws nearer and nearer, Ha! see, there's a rent in the mist, And the sight grows clearer and clearer."
Chorus.
And they broke on the foe like a Highland storm,
And nearer and louder becoming, Par over the mist there sounded the march,
The march, " The Campbells are Coming."
Soprano .Solo.
There's a shimmer of steel o'er the far-spreading plain, From the squadrons for battle arrayed,
With their plaids and gay plumes in their bonnets they
come, And England's flag displayed.
Soprano, Bakitosk, and Chorus.
And the foemen fled, and they enter'd the gate,
And Ellen's voice rose to heaven: We're saved by the bond of our olden troth,
To God praise and honor be given!

2. jpogner'3 H&Dvess, TRicbarb Wagner
(FROM T11K MASTER SINGERS OF NUREMBERG.)
[Veit Pogneb, mastersinger and wealthy burgomaster of Nuremberg, sings this aria to the assembled mastersingers in the first act of the opera. On it hinges the plot, setting forth the reason for the tournament1 of song, in which Walther von Stolzing triumphantly wins the hand of Eva.]
Give heed now to what I say!
The feast of John the Baptist's day
You know we keep to-morrow.
On meadow green, 'mid flowers gay,
With feast and dance, and merry play,
The cares the mind besetting
With merry heart forgetting,
Each one rejoices as he may. The singing school to great church choir The masters e'en are changing,
With nome and din the gate they gain,
Advancing o'er the open plain,
Where gala sounds are ringing.
As list'ners to their singing
Th' untutored folk they'll not disdain. A prize is set, for which with song
Each year have singers striven,
And both are praised both far and long,
The song and what is given. I am, thank God, a prosp'rous man,
And since each one gives what he can, What gift 1 could decide on
That I could look with pride on,
This much my mind has tried,
Now hear what I decide. It oft has caused me sorrow keen
To rind throughout the nation The burgher, niggardly and mean
In each one's estimation. By lofty and by lowly born
The same reproach is made with scorn:
" By base desire for gold
The burgher's mind's controlled! " That we, as all in German lands Give art alone devotion
They seem to have no notion. Yet how this to our honor stands,
That nobly, s man should, We prize the fair and good, That art in every form we love-'Twas this to the world I wish'd to prove, And therefore, masters, know
What gift I shall bestow! The victor in the art of song Who wins the prize before the throng,
On John the Baptist's day,
Be he whoe'er he may,
Him give I, of art a lover,
Of Nuremberg, Veit Poeuer, With gold and lands and all beside,
Eva, my only child, as bride!
{English VeriHuu by Laura Underwood.)

(psalm xlii.)
Chorus.
As the hart pants after the water brooks, so panteth ray soul for Thee O God.
Arta.
My soul thirsteth for God for the living God; when shall I come and appear before God's presence
Recitative, Air and Chorus.
My tears have been my meat day and night while they daily say unto me, where is now thy God Now when I think thereupon, I pour out my heart by myself, for I had gone forth most gladly with the people, and to lead them forth to Jehovah's temple, with the voice of praise and gladness like as a people keeping holy day.
Chorus.
Why my soul art thou so vexed, And why art thou cast clown in me Trust thou in God, for I will give Him great thanks for the help of His good countenance.
Recitative Solo and Male Chorus.
My God, within me is my soul cast down, therefore will I remember Thee. Deep callelh unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts; all Thy waves and all Thy billows are gone over me. The Lord hath commanded His kindness in the daytime, in the night did I sing of Him and made my prayer to the God of my life.
Chorus.
Why my soul art thou so vexed, And why art thou cast down in me Trust thou in God, for I will give Him Great thanks for the help of His good countenance.
Praised be the Lord the God of Israel from henceforth and! forever more.
4. Discovers, -.
(bjornstjerne bjoknson.--Translated by C. H.)
i.
And it was Olav Trygvason, Steering o'er the north sea cold,
Seeking afar for virgin kingdoms While sailing forth so bold.
Dimly the land appearing
They crowded the deck as storms were clearing.
II.
And it was Olav Trygvason, Harborless seemed all the land,
Wrecked would be all the kingly heroes, Wrecked on the barren strand.
Till one of them, astounded.
Saw snowy peaks with clouds surrounded.
III.
And it was Olav Trygvason,
Suddenly did he behold, High rising o'er him, temples lofty,
White walls, and domes of gold. Seized with a mighty longing. He strives to reach the land now dawning.
IV.
Woods decked the land in spring's array, Pleasant streams ran purling by,
Storms that at sea were wildly raging, Came to the woods to die.
Organs and bells were pealing,
And the Viking spoke, with mystic feelingV.
" Here discovered, are foundations, Light still triumphs over darkness, Spirits tremble, hearts are bounding, Joyfully his praises sounding.
VI.
" That thy faith may strong be builded, Pure as ice by sunlight gilded, Bise from nature's best endeavor, Seek thy God, seek Him forever."
VII.
Like the Viking we are praying, Homage to the Highest paying. Spirits tremble, hearts are bounding, Joyfully His praises sounding.
VIII.
That thy faith may strong be builded, Pure as ice by sunlight gilded, Rise from nature's best endeavor, Seek thy God, seek Him forever!

5. Hve IDaria, if. IDarcbettt
Ave Maria, su te discende,
Quanto di grazia
Nel ciel risplende;
Tu fra le tiglie d' Eva la eletta
Ave Maria sii benedetta.
Sia benedetto, quel sacro pegno, Che a noi del cielo dischiuse il regno, Che in te discese, poiche s'accese, II divo Spirito, per te d'amor, Sia benedetto teco il Signor.
Santa Maria, del ciel desio, Virgine e sposa, Madre di Dio, Gli occhi tergendo, col tuo bel velo, Pe'rei, pe'miseri, propizia il cielo! Prega per noi, prega per noi!
Prega per noi, finche la guerra, Delia barbarie ci strazia in terra, Prega il tuo riglio, quanclo sul ciglio Starra dell ultimo, pianto il dolor! Sia benedetto, teco il Signor!
6. Salamaletfeum, fl. Cornelius
Hail to this mansion to which you came!
Salamaleikum! Hail to your Majesty's royal name!
Salamaleikum! See here your slaves with bonded frame!
Salamaleikum! Ready and willing your might to proclaim!
Salnmalcikum! May your race always be free from blamel
Salamaleikum! May ever Allah procure your aim!
Salamaleikum! And may your shadow be e'er the same!
Salamaleikum! Live till your thousandth year in fame!
Salamaleikum!
7. (Sallia, _____ (Bounob
Chorus.
Solitary lieth the city, she that was full of people, How is she widowed, she that was great among nations, Princess among the provinces, How is she put under tribute Lonely she weepeth in darkness, Her tears are on her cheeks,
And no one offereth consolation; yea, all her friends have betrayed her.
Solo and Chorus.
Zion's ways do languish, none come to her solemn feasts;
All her gates are desolate, her priests sigh,
Yea, her virgins are afflicted and she is in bitterness.
Solj and Chorus.
Is it nothing to all ye that pass by
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my
sorrow.
Now, behold, O Lord, look thou on my affliction, See, the foe hath magnified himself.
FINAL K.
Jerusalem! Jerusalem! return thee to the Lord thy God.

"Hurry, Hurry!"
Cried a man as he rushed into the doctor's office. "Baby's swallowed the whole dozen pills you left for wife." "Don't get excited," said the doctor, " I'll give you another dozen in a minute." Grown people swallow a good many things that do them no good. Many swallow easiest those things about which they know least. Some Ann Arbor people swallow anything agents for Detroit houses tell them, but think they must use plenty of water to wash down what our home merchants say. We are led to this little homily by the remarks of a recent customer. A Detroit piano agent told so glibly how much cheaper he could sell pianos than we, because he bought so much cheaper and sold so many more, that the lady was on the point of buying. She came into our store and mentioned the fact. We showed her a letter received from a New York piano house which reads as follows: "After carefully thinking the matter over, we have decided to give you the State Agency for our pianos, for, though you sell about the same number of pianos, we like your spot cash methods. Messrs. (4. B. of Detroit paid us from 7 to VI dollars more for each piano, than your price, but they did not always pay when they promised, and so we have decided to transfer the agency to you."
After reading the above the lady decided we were able to sell as low as Detroit dealers.
We are agents for several standard pianos. Are sole factors for the Clifford I'iano. We buy low; pay quick, and sell at a moderate price. If you contemplate buying a piano it might be well to see us before you are persuaded to buy elsewhere, for we have a habit of proving our ability to meet competition. The above mentioned letter may be seen at our store by any one who might think this a fairy tale.
