Pastor MAY CALL SPECIAL CONFERENCE OF CHURCH OF METHODIST CHURCH TO CON- SIDER THE CHURCH UNION QUESTION Winnipeg, June Dr. Car- man, general...superintendent uE the lUeihodist church, in addressing ,the jUe'thodist conference here this after- expressed his satisfaction at the conclusion reached by the Pres- byterian General assembly at Eclinon- regarding church''union. While he did not commit the church to any course of procedure, lie-thought per- sonally that it was desirable that the proposed union should take place. The -'divine., indications he believed, pojntel thar He .said that-the special committee of the church uotild hkch meet Juh aild tjier nuUl discuss ihe id visability of calling the general con- ference for a special meeting. It would, in Ms opinion, be. unsesmlv tor the Meflodisl church to delij proceedings, as there would be no undue haste. T OOK1.XG BACK on the. musica I I j and theatrical season in this 1 city just ended one is inclined to feel encouraged. The musical at j tractions have possibly on the whol I been of a higher standard than th various theatrical bills offered. Nor dica. KubeHk. the Welsh Male Clioii j the Ladies' Choir, .die Intel national Onera Singers, and the ,St I Paul Symphouy Orchestra were outstanding musical events, "while as regards the theatrical productions the only cue possibly which ineasure( up to a high artistic standard the performance- of Oscar Wilde's 'The Broken Law" by Constance Cnwle.v assisted by Arthur: Maude and a really excellent company of clever people well schooled in the finer dramatic art. It was unfortun- ate indeed that Lethbridge theatre folks failed to properly patronize this attraction. However, there, is no use crying over spilt milk. Dealing with conditions musically in this city Is gratifying to note that we have now two choral.organizations, one be- ing the Philharmonic Society and the other Young People's Choral Un? ion conducted respectively by J. "W Joues and E.-F. Lay ton, two gentle- men well known here. The concerts given by both choirs aroused a great First Class Table Board 229-11th St., S Home Cooking m deal of interest-and it was niy priv ilege to attend both events.

Lethbridge must advance m a bigger measure next season .musically if she woulc draw the attention of, the muaacl' world. There is no reason why this chy should not become a ceutre foi the development and cultivation of the finer arts. .At-.the present time, if a first class' theatrical attraction came along it not be UberaUj pauomzed if it came in the re- gular theatre season. At the recent Conducting Exams Here Richard Taltersal, of the faculty of tJie Toronto Conservatory of Music, is in the city today conducting exam- inations on behalf of 1 hat institution. Quite a number of local piano stud- ents' are being examined. Donizetti of Scotch Descent There-is nothing about the name of Donizetti at first sight to associate it with the land -of -Kilts, yet, never- theless, the composer of Lucia di Lammerraoor was the grandson of a native of Perthshire. Scotland, nam- ed Izett. Izett was beguiled into join- ng the. British army by the fascinat- ing glamour of a recruiting sergeant, and was drafted to Ireland. He was taken prisoner by General La Hocihe when the .-.French invaded Ireland, and being weary of soldiering, enter- ed the .General's service. -Eventually he drifted to .Italy, and married a lady of rank. His name was changed to and by this name his grandson became, famous The Scottish, ancestry of the com poser, shows itself, in Lucia di La-m- course-, is founded on a Scotch in Don PO.S quale; though Italian influences un dpubtedly predominate.
