87. GEORGE ROGERS,


Don't take Sorrows too Deeply
to Heart.
[The following is a pretty little poem
by GEORGIANA CLARK telling mortals
not to take sorrows too deeply to heart.
---ED.]
There's many a trouble
Would break like a bubble,
And into the waters of Lethe depart,
Did not we rehearse it,
And tenderly nurse it,
And give it a permanent place in the heart
There's many a sorrow
Would vanish to-morrow,
Werowe not unwilling to furnish the
wings,
So sadly intruding
And quietly brooding,
It hatches out all sorts of horrible things.
How welcome the seeming,
Of looks that are beaming,
Whether one's wealthy or whether one's
poor?


FOR PALATKA AND SILVER SPRING!
The New and Elegant- U. S.f Mail


tack us. So far as is given to man
the ability to judge, we may say
with confidence that we should
have destroyed the Federal army,
marched iuto Washington, and
dictated our terms, or at least held
Washington, and marched over as
much of Pennsylvania as we cared
to, had we drawn the enemy into
attack upon our carefully chosen
position in his rear. Gen. Lee
chose the plans adopted, and he
is the person appointed to choose
and to older. I consider it a part
of my duty to express my views
to the commanding General. If
he approves and adops them, it is
well; if he does not, it is my duty
to adopt his views and to execute
his orders as faithfully and as zeal-
ously as if they had been my own.
I cannot help but think that great
results would have been obtained
had my views been thought bet-
ter of, yet I am much inclined to
accept the present condition as for
the best. I hope and trust that
is so.
Your programme would all be
well enough 'were it praticable,
and was duly thought of too. I
fancy that no good ideas upon
that campaign will be mentioned
at any time that did not receive
their attention and consideration
by Gen. Lee. The few things
that he might have~overloked him-
self I believe were suggested by
myself. Aswe'failed of success I
must lake my part of the respon-
sibility. In fact, I would prefer
that all the blameishould rest on J
me. As Gen. Lee is our command- l
er, be should have all the support
and influence that we can give
him. If the blame-If there is any C
-can be shifted from him to me, l
I shall help him and our cause by b
taking it. I desire, therefore, l
that all the responsibility that can t
be put upon me shall go there and t
remain there. The truth will be a
known in time, and I leave that s
to show how much of the respon-
sibility of the attack at Gettys- s
burg rests upon myself. f
Most affectionately, yours, s
J. LONGSTREET. r
Dr. A. B. Longstreet, L.L.D.
Columbus, Ga. v
. General Lee, in a letter written a
to General Longstreet in January, a
1864, says: "Had I taken your
advice (at Gettysburg), instead of v
pursuing the course I did, how t
different all might have been." r
Captain T. J. Goree, of Houston,
Texas, in a letter to General
Longstreet, says: "Another impor-
tant circumstance, which I dis-
tinctly remember, was in the win-
ter of 1864, when you sent me from
East Tennessee to Orange Court i,
House with some dispatches to h
General Lee. Upon my arrival i,
there General Lee asked me into
his tent, where he was alone, with e
;wo or three Northern papers on
his table. He remarked that he
had just been reading the North- P
ern official reports of the battle of s,
of Gettysburg; that he had be- c
come satisfied, from reading those c
reports, that if he had permitted g
You to carry out your plans on s8
the third day, instead of making r,


the attack on Cemetry Hill, we b
would have been successful." d

The State Fair.
The last issue of the Jackson-
ville Press contained the premium
list of the State Fair, to com-
mence at Jacksonville on the 22d
iust., and to continue" four days.
The premiums are liberal and
cover all kinds of Florida produc-
tions; and the Press extends a
cordial invitation to the citizens
in every portion of the State to
compete for the same. It says:
"It is to be hoped that very
one who can do so, will send for-
ward articles for exhibition, so
that a grand display, such as no
other State could think of at any
time of the year, much less. in
mid-winter, may repay the stran-
ger that is within our gates, as
well as our people, for the trouble
and expense of attending.
We hope to see Middle, West,
and South, as well as East Florida
represented. This is an enterprise
in which every portion of our
State is interested, and at which
every section, by a display of its
productions, may reap great bene-
fit. South Florida claims the
preeminence in orange growing.
Let East, Middle and West Flor- f
ida dispute this claim. Oranges
ripened by the sun and breezes of t
Indian river and Tampa bay are I
no doubt luscious, but the Suwan- I
nee, Apalachicola and Pensacola l
bay can lay their golden globes c
along side of these, and ask, "are i
not ours as good?" Manatee can d
boast the frost never congealathe j
uices in her cane, but cannot Co- I
umbia and Alachua, from their in
rich soil produce as fine? The v
Southernmost counties can pro- c
duce their pineapples, and chal- h
enge their Northern sisters to I
beat them; the Northern counties t
must admit their inability to do d
his, but they can cover them with t]
he snowy fleeces of their fields, i1
nd ask in turn if their Southern s
sisters can rival them here. 7,
Let every portion of the
end its treasures, and let';
fields, the forests, the lykes,
treams and the sea-shores of Vo- N
ida unite in one grand hymn, in S
tooor of that progressive spirit o0
which promises us a State Fair n,
nd points to the future elevation ai
nd improvement of the State." l1
Arrangenmeits have been made k
with the J., P. & M. Railroad Co.Y n:

[From the New Orleans Republican.
The Battle of Gettysburg.

LETTER FROM GEN. LONGSTREET TO
A RELATIVE AFTER ITS OCCUPATION.
WVe published from Scribner,
on Saturday, a letter from Gen.
Leeito Jeff. Davis, written on."the
8th of August, 1863, in which the
Confederate cheiftain assumed all
the responsibility for the disasters
to his army at Gettysburg, and
asked to be relievedfrom the com-
mand. There can be no doubt.
that this letter is genuine, and
that Gen. Lee was entirely sincere
in making the suggestions it con-
tains. With this letter and the
General's reasons for writing it,
we have nothing further to do at
present than call attention to the
strong corroboratory relation it
bears to one written by Gen. Long-
street, fif'ten days before the former
was penned. While Longstreet
was encamped at Culpepper Court
House, he received a letter from
his uncle, Dr. A. `B. Longstreet,
L.L.D., of Columbus, Ga., in
which the Doctor urged his neph-
ew to publish some of the facts
connected with' the battle of Get-
tyshurg, that his correct position
and connection with the affair
might be known. The General
wrote to his uncle an answer from
which the subjoined. extract is now
published for the first time:
General Longstreet was oppos-
ed to the policy of attacking the
Union army at the cemetery, and
so expressed himself to General
Lee, but was overruled by his
commanding officer, and did the
best he could to turn the mistake
into success. His corps was first
in readiness and first to make the
attack. Other Confederate com-
manders were so tardy in coming
into action that the day was lost.
Lee saw and acknowledged his er-
ror, thus doing full justice to the
survivors, though he could not res-

t Another Coivert,
A gentleman from Dayton
, Ohio, a friend of Mr. Ben Harter
says the Muncie (Ind.) Democrat
came all the way from that swel
city of our neighboring State, t(
convince him of the folly of remov.
ing, to Florida. After finishing
an agonizing account of its results
from his stand point, friend Harter
opened on him and 'in just two
hours and'30 minutes by the clock;
that Dayton man had one of the
worst attacks of Florida fever
which.has yet struck this section.
Mr, Harter has orders from the
gentleman aforesaid, to purchase
Sa few hundred acres of land and
that he will make it his home this
fall. And so the "Land of Flow-
ers"' will add another live, ener-
getic man to its population. Yet
there is, room,.fur more.

RETRENCHMENT.--The New
York Sun hits the nail on the
head in the following: "The ques-
tions before this congress is re-
trenchment and reform. It comes
home to evwry man's fireside, and
applies with equal force o the
great operations of government.
All the elections for the two years
past have greatly turned upon
that issue, and the Democrats are


largely indebted for their present
majority to its advocacy. The
Committee on Appropriations will
do well to.make haste slowly and
to guard every poirit as they go on,
The country is with them.
Vanderbilt University.
The Methodists of' the South
have much reason to be proud of
their great University. Almost as
by magic, it has sprung into full
grown proportions; by a happy
combination of men and measures,
the'work has brought into a har-
monious co-operation the talent
and wisdom of that dtn-omination
in the South with the immense
wealth of the North. These two
-wisdom and Wealth combined--
have established the Northern and
Southern Methodists, upon this
enterprise, in close and paternal
accord. An accomplishment like
this is a great step in the direction
of denominational peace and res-
torat ion of the old fraternity. The
men and women, all wise and
pious, who were the instruments
in the work, deserve well of this
generation, and are entitled to a
,place among thd good and great
of any age or people.-Atlanta

ad Centennial Appeal lor Aid
v0 ADDRESS OF THE STATE BOARD.
of It is high time that the peop]
d of this State should awaken to tih
prime necessity and great impol
a tance of being well and worthil
t- represented at the approaching
re Centennial Exposition. It is tru
m that some efforts have been mad
t, in this direction. But they hav
d been sporadic and desultory i
their character, and the results hav
0- not been so satisfactory as coul
0- have been desired. Let us consid
a er the subject for a moment! Flor
le ida was the first of the sisterhoo
0 of States occupied by Europeanm
e Here, long before the settlement
of Jamestown and Plymouth, th
ie emblem of the Christian faith ha
to been planted, and civilization ha
11 effected a foothold. Until with
ir a few years past, her wondrou
8s and diversified resources have beer
K unknown, and her great and ex
tensive capabilities unnoticed
in The State was regarded by th
,h uninformed as a steril sand-bank
t. or a pestilential morass-a fit hab
s itation for the savage Seminole, o
n the'mailed aligator. The Masses
I, even of Americans, had as vagu
Y and indefinite conceptions of its pe
re culiar topography, as did Living
stone of the interior of Africa, before
commencing his explorations o
that country. To the nation a
large, our State was a terra incog
nita, whose foul swamps engender
" ed, fatal miasmata, and whos
o dense forest were only suitable
f abodes for prowling wild beasts am
.0 noxious reptiles. The search o
is Ponce De Leon for the miraculou
fountain of youth and strength
was branded as mythical, or a
is the vagury of a crazed imagination
I And yet the vision of the gallan
,t old cavalier war prophetic, and is ir
.8 process of realization. The spring
!s of restorative water which he vain-
Sly sough, -ha8 been discovered by

prise will be there, on the lookout
for better rewards for skill and
labor-science will be there, eager
to discover untried regions for re-
search. Shall not Florida spread
her treasures before this mighty
throng for inspection? Shall she
not, although young and feeble,
modestly stand among her sister
States and assert her claims to
notice?
We confidently believe that
there is too much State pride and
too much patriotic feeling in the
bosoms of' Floridians to permit
this golden opportunity to pass
unnoticed. It is true that the
State has made no Legislative ap-
propriation for effecting this pur-
pose. The duty, then, devolves
upon the people at large, and we
would urge upon you most earn-
estly the duty and the necessity of
early and decisive action. The
ladies, ever foremost in all good
works, are actively engaged in
raising funds. Money has been
obtained through their exertions,
in various portions of the State,
in aid of this object. To show
what can be effected in this man-
ner, we mention the fact that in
Indiana, where the Legislature
refused an appropriation, the la-
dies have raised $25,000 already,
through- tea-pariies etc., and are
still working with' undiminished
aeal and spirit. A general con-


I


cert of action among the ladies of
this State, would soon bring about
the desired consummation. We
would suggest most respectfully
and yet most urgently that th(
fair ladies of our State, through-
out its length jand breadth, AT
ONCE institute steps for raising
funds by Martha Washington Tea
Parties, Fairs, or any other means
deemed most practicable, and that
they be held in their respective lo-
calities on the 22d of this month,
or as soon thereafter as possible.
We appeal ta you, ladies, in the
full assurance that- you clearly
recognize the importance of the
subject, \and with the knowledge
on our pfart, that we can accom-
plish nothing without your timely
and invaluable assistance. We
confidently rely upon your aid
and co-operation in facilitating
our purposes, and in bringing this
grand national enterprise to a
glorious and successful termina-
tion.

f Immediately in the rear of th
I hotel.is the famous Mt. Cornelia
f noted as being the highest poin
r 'on the coast between New Yorl
and the Rio Grande. On thi
knoll the proprietors of the islam
have erected a tower 55 feet high
which thus gives an elevation
above the water of 150 feet. Th
) view from this tower is really;
fine: bringing under the eye a larg
circuit o country, showing th
adjacent islands and the stream
and lagoons on one side and tb
mighty ocean on the other.
This magnificent domain o
t 1200 acres is now being beautifie<
f and laid out with the view of af
fording to the people of the Soutl
a suitable summer resort where(
healthful amusement can be se
cured at moderate cost. Thos(
who have the means can buy lotf
and build houses in which thei
'families may reside "all the yeat

others will find comfortable quar
lers at the hotel. But more es
pecially it is a Florida institution
fur the benefit of Floridians.
To add to its beauties Dr. Hal
contemplates laying out a botani-
cal garden on a scale which hba
not hitherto been dreamed of by
any of our people. To this gar-
den he will remove his already
large collection of trees and plant
collected during his travels in Ja-
pan and China and to which he
will add continually. This gar-
den will be of incalculable value
to Florida, as it will bring under
the eye of all interested in the
material advancement of our State
many new plants and trees which
may add to the already large list
of productions of the soil which
may be made articles of food or
enter into the arts.
In my rambles over the island
I noted a number of fine places
already started and in a fine state
of cultivation.. The 'orange trees
in all of them were in a thrifty
condition and showed no signs of
having been touched by frost. In
fact there had been only one frost
on the island this winter and that
harmless. I am quite confident
from what I'saw and also from
what has been told me by old res-
idents that the island is more free
from damaging frosts -than the
mainland, and I do not know of a
more desirable spot in which to
spend a day, or a week, or a month,
than Fort George Island, where
hunting, fishing, boating and
bathing arc, all at one's command

THE

WEEKLY AND TRIW-EEKLY SUN.
An Independent Journal, Devoted to the
Interest of the State.
"Live and let Live," its Motto.
It has seemed to us for the past three
years that there is a field for successful
journalism in this city and State which
has only been partially cultivated, or
spasmodically occupied, and that the
time has now come for a more determin-
ed effort in thi direction The unoccu-
pied field alluded to is .hat of independ-
ent, honest, unbiased, and frank criti-
cism of public men and public measures
in the interest of sound morals, good
government, and a higher civilization.
The page in the history of our state il-
lustrating Republicanism since recon-
struction,.is not one that we can' dwell
upon with the highest satisfaction; and
it is not one that offers to the student in
the current politics of the country,
the purest examples of patriotism or of
good morals in politics, or of sound
statesmanship, Nevertheless, all that
has been wrong in action or in party pol-
icy, may have been partly the necessary
outgrowth of the stirring and exciting
times just succeeding the war and of-re-
construction, and also of the dividing
of parties on. new and living 'Is-
sues. Without discussing the past
too closely, or seeming to criticise,
its salient points too freely, it is safe
to assume that the timni has now
come to "turn over a new leaf' in our
methods of conducting politics and in
the selecting of public servants. If par-
ty politics in the past seemed narrow and
bigoted, and our public servants In all
the essentials that in well regulated com-
muniities are deemed indespensible. have
been lamentably deficient, the occasion
no longer exists, for the State is rapidly
filling up with first-class men-men who
do their own thinking and their own vo-
ting, and who will be satisfied only with
a State Government that shall be hon-
estly and economically administered.
If the'Republican party in this State
to-day is the synonym for honesty and
ability, and for right partWt ftqio
and a liberal policy with regard fo
men and measures, then let it hencefor-
ward be sustained; but if, on the contra-
ry, it is ruled by those who care not for
the public welfare, nor Republican tri-
umps, but who merge all in personal ag-
grandisement 'or individual success,
then let the new settlers, whose pros-
perity in their new homes depends so
much on good government and' honest
public servants, unite with those who
think as th y do, of the older citizens, to
demand a recognition of the principle
that the State is above party and the
people above all. Party triumph is
meanfingless and worthless unless it
brings with it public good; and the mere
success of individuals, irrespective of
public benefit, is not an object to call
forth the highest efforts of party men, or
of party organization; and it will not in
the future, for this would be just the op-
posite of the older and true idea of the
uses of party.
It seems to us now, as before observ-
ed, that there is not only room and the
opportunity for an independent newspa-
per in the State, but also a necessity for
one. This need in Florida Journalism
we propose to supply b_ the publication
in this city of a Tri-Weekly and Weekly
newspaper, -to be called "TIE FLORIDA
SUN," the first number to be issued on
Saturday next (January 22d). It will be
printed on good paper, and made as at-
tractive as good workmanship careful
supervision, and large experience can
make it. It will be devoted- to Florida
matters especially, political, agricultur-
al, and industrial, thereby furnishing a
medium of communication for new set-
tlers and the old citizens of the State,
with friends in the Nortlh and West, and
the outside world generally.
The SUN will be devoted to the pecu-
liar interest of no one party, individual,
class, or section, but the friend of all who
labor to build up the State and the na-
tion, to make men happier, more intelli-
gent, more-public spirited, and therefore
better citizens, and better united.
Without the wish or the purpose in the
least, to interfere with any other public
cation, may we not confidently appeal to
the reading portion ot our State, to give
us their confidence and their patronage
in this new enterprise?
We hope to make our paper so much
of a necessity, and such a true exponent
of the progress and of the better feelings
of all good citizens, at this Centennial
pi riod in our history, that all subscrib-
ers oi the New South, will not only re-
new their subscription, but commend it
to their neighbors
The Weekly will be among the largest
papers printed in the State, 26x40; and
tlhe Tri-Weekly 22x32. Price of the
Weekly, $2.50 per year in advance, o1
$1.50 for six months."
Tri Weekly $4.00 per year in advance,
or $2.25 for six months.

THE FLORIDA INTERIOR


*


The theatrical entertainment comes
off next Tuesday night. We have not
yet been furnished with ak programme
of the plays, but from the corps of
actors named to take parts in them,
they promise to excel anything that has
ever yet been placed before the footlights
in Ocala. The proceeds will go towards
furnishing and decorating the temper-
ance hall, and making this glorious
cause a permanent and living reality
in this community. We hope that
every effort, looking forward to the
promotion of a cause so pure and be-
nevolent, so unselfish and noble in its
objects, will receive no niggardly sup-
ort from the people of this place and
vicinity, but that all good persons who
love their fellow-men, and desire to see
that large class of unfortunates who
are slaves to intoxcation and debauch-
ery, turned away from the road that
leads to ruin and certain death and
placed upon a footing of respectability
and happiness, will give the members
of this noble order, in all their efforts
to advance its interests and increase its
popularity, a hearty and emphatic ap-
proval.
Since writing the above we have
been handed a programme of the en-
tertainment, which will be found in
another column.

The Land of Flowers.
The return of Mr. Ed. Anthony and
Mr. Ben. Harter from Middle Florida
has started the Southern fever in town,
and it is burning fiercely. About a doz-
en families will'leave within the next
two weeks; in the fall, say in October
and November, there will be a rush.
What any of our people should want
to go to the arid plains, or the grass-
hopper regions of the West, when
God's paradise lies just South of them,
is beyond our ken. Tennessee, Mis-
sissippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida,
to those who wish to cultivate the soil;
to engage in horticulture, or in, fruit
culture, can find no where on God's
footstool a better climate-and soil than
can be found in the above named
States. Just now, Florida is the Mec-
ca toward which many eyes are set,
and Messrs. Anthony and Harter have
been holding levies for the past two
weeks, and the crowd still comes for-
ward to listen in wonder to the rich
and varied details of that beautiful
land given'by these gentlemen.
I While Jacksonville, Mr. Anthony
admits, is a beautiful city, still, it is but
the opening to the gates of paradise.
Middle Florida, Mr, Anthony says, is
the real backbone of the State in soil
and climate, an q no healthier place on
the continent. Marion county, before
the war one of ttie Wealthiest in the
State, and where is found the famous
Silver Spring, known as the "'Fountain
of Youth,' land c*n be purchased at
From $5 to $20 per acre, within a few

miles of Ocala, the county site, while
,there are yet thousands of acres subject

to the homestead law in that and
surrounding counties. Every variety
of tropical fruit, such as oranges, lem-
ons, graves, bananas, lines, etc., etc.;
apples, pears, plums and peaches, can
be raised equal to any in the Union.
The woods are full of wild oranges and
grapes. The grapes will he one of the
leading fruits that will receive atten-
tion, lere long. Corn, cotton and su-
gar-carte, are staple articles of culture,
and naturally adapted to the soil. Thai
there are splendid chances in thai
S tate to secure homes and independ-
ence, is well assured, and to those who
are not satisfied With Indiana soil and
climate, we say call on Messrs. Anthonj
!and Har'ter, and they will inoculate yol
with the Florida fever, which will carr]
you: off to that favored clime in this


Centennial year. To our thousands of
readers we will say that we shall mak(
arrangements with Messrs. Harter anc


TRY it; keep trying it, and try it again
We say this because we believe that the
health, happiness and prosperity of the
people depend upon the proper use of
these medicines, which have proved so
successful in eradicating disease and de-
feating death. The medicine so effective
in its cure of diseases is the great South-
ern remedy, Simmons' Liver Regulator.
Try it; we believe that the first trial will
be satisfactory.

Fire II!
A destructive fire occurred at Ninety-

stores valued at $20.000 were burned.
The further spread of the conflagration,
with probable destruction of the whole
town and loss of several hundred thou-
sand dollars worlh of property, and
many lives, was prevented by the arrival
of a Great American Fire Extinguisher,
an Agent happening to come in town at
the nick of time. For full particulars,
see the Abbeville Medium and Newberry
Herald of the following week.

In the olden Vine, nature prostrate with
pain and suffering, was attacked with
the lancet, calomel, blisters, starvation
and thirst. All this was done with hon-
est intentions, but with terrible results.
It is a pleasing fact that the enlightened
public of the rresent clay have discarded
such medication. The disorders that sap
tlie powers of life' are now expelled by
remedial agents, that brace up the vital
strength, while running its cause. The
qualities are found in an eminent degree
in D]R. TUTT'S VEGETABLE LIVER PILLS.
They have become celebrated over a wide
extent of the globe as the safest and
gentlest remedial agent ever offered to
suffering humanity, and it is not the
result of newspaper puffing, but by the
great merit of the medicine itself.

n c y,


Eighteen hundred ano seventy-six is '
the Centennial year. It is also the year
in which an Opposition House of Repge-
sentatives, rthe first since the war, will
, be in power at Washington; and the year
or the twenty third election of a Presi,
dent of the United States. All of thats
events are sure to be of great interest
and importance, especially the two lat-
ter; and all of them and everything con-
nected with them will bef lully and fresh-
ly reported andpOunded in The Son.
The Oppositiowinouse of Representa-
tives taking up the line of inquiry open-
ed years ago by the Sun, will sternly and
diligently investigate, tbe corruption
and misdeeds o1 Grant's administration;
and wilt, it is to be hoped, lay the foun-
dations for a uew and better period min
our national history. Of all this The
Sun wil contain complete and accatne
account., furnishing its readers "with
early and trustworthy information upon
these absorbing topics.
The twenty-third Presidential election,
with the preparations for it, will be
memorable as deciding upon Grant's as.
-pirations for a third term of power and
plunder, and still more as deciding who
shall be the candidate of the party of R J
form,and as electifig that candidate. CoD
cerning -all these subject?, those wl,
read The Sun will have the cons
means of being thoroughly well inform-
ed.
The WtEEKILY SUN, which has attained
a circulatlou of over eighty thousand
copies, already has its readers in every
State and Territory, we trust that tho
year 1876 will see their numbers doubled.
It wil continue to be a thorough news-
paper. All the general news of the day
will be found in it, condensed when un-
important, at full Jengtlwhen of mo-
ment; and always, we trust, treated in a "
clear, interesting and instructive man.
n er. ^ : -, :.. ** :* :, '
It is our aim .o make the WJEEKLY
SUN the best family newspaper in the
world, and we shall continue-to give in
its columns a large amount of miscella-
neous reading, such as stories, tales, po-
ems, scientific intelligence and agricul.
tural information, for which we are not
able to make room in our daily edition.
The agricultural department especially
is one of its prominent features. The
fashions are regularly reported in its col-
umns; and so are the markets of every
kind.
The WEEKLY SUI, eight pages with
flftysix broad columns is only $1.20 a
year, postage paid. As this price barely
repays the cost of the paper, no discount
can be made trom this rate to clubs,
agents, Postmasters, or any one.
The DAILY SUN, :a large four page
newspaper of twenty-eight- columns,
gives all the ntiews for two cents a copy.
Subscription, paid 55c. a month or $6.50
a year. Sunday edition extra, $1.10 per -
year. We have no traveling agents.

TESTIMONIALS
-OF-
Waters' Pianos and Organs.
Waters' New Scale Pianos have pecu-
liar merits.-New Yqrk tribune.
The tone-of the Waters' Piano is rich,
mellow and sonorous. They possess
great volume of sound and the continue
tion of sound or singing power is one of
their most marked features.-New York
Times.
Waters' Concerto Organ is so voiced
as to have a tone like a full rich alto
voice. It is especially human- in its tone,
powerful yet sweet.-BuralNew Yorker.
