The editor of the Star likes to hear

a good' anvil chorus. And being, he

hopes, a good sport, he doesn't mind

acting the part of the anvil occasion

ally. Not the hammers but the tuning
forks of many of the musical experts
of Ocala have been binging on him

for forty-eight hours. The tuning
forks are by this time tired, but the
anvil, so far as we can see, is as good,

or bad, as ever.
It's thisserway:

Friday night, we went to hear Miss

Frieda Hempel sing at the. Temple
theater. We went, not to criticise but
enjoy ourself, and we paid for our

ticket. We enjoyed ourself very much
We thought Miss Hempel had an ex

cellent voice and was exceedingly easy
to look at. We thought her assistants
were also first-class in their parts.

Miss Hempel sang twelve songs. Ten

of them we thought were superb. One

we tnougnt sne lauea in. une we
thought she didn't sing as well as it

could be sung.

Now, in the affairs of life, 83.1-3 per

cent is a mighty high average. If
you go hunting, shoot twelve times
and bring home ten birds, you are do doing
ing doing well. If you are a lawyer and win
ten out of twelve cases, you are extra
smart. If you are a physician and
save ten out of twelve people who are

desperately sick, you are skilled in
your, profession. If you are an editor
and ten out of every twelve of your

editorials win popular approval, you

are a darnsite smarter than we are. In
bragging on Miss Hempel ten times
out of twelve, we did a lot better by

her than anybody ever does about us.
However, we didn't intend to write
anything about the performance. We
retired from the role of dramatic edi editor
tor editor some two years ago, and have no
desire to resume it. The job was wish wished
ed wished on us along about the year of
grace 1908 by the proprietors of the
Star and the manager of the Marion
opera house, and if we didn't attend to
it so well, just think how much worse
some other people might have done.
It's a thankless job. If you tell the
truth you get it where the chicken got
the ax, and if you don't tell the truth
you get it the same place. So we had
no intention of writing anything about
Miss Frieda's songfest.
But about 10 o'clock Saturday morn morning,
ing, morning, the new3 was conveyed to us that
Ed. Bennett wanted us to include in
the write-up of the perfbrmance the
fact that Friday was the twelfth
birthday of his theater, and that' was
proof positive that Ed. expected some something
thing something to be writ. Now, we like to
oblige Ed., in whose Thespian temple
we have spent many pleasant hours

and, unless this last break has barred

us, expect to spend some more. 1 So
we 'pounded off a little piece
About the Temple
And Miss Hempel,

And let it go. As soon as the paper

went to press that afternoon, we

climbed a train and went to Gaines

ville, which probably saved our life.

When we returned, we found the
music sharps, or some of them, buz

zing like angry bees, tho' the rest of

the town seemed normal. Some of the
names we've been called in the last
two days, we have written down in

our memorandum book; we are going
to apply them to the enemy the next

time the U. S. goes to war.
This article isn't an apology. Hav Having
ing Having read and re-read our piece, we
have concluded we are too hopelessly
obtuse to see where we have offended.
Seems to us that considering we wrote
only what we believed to be the truth,
that we were rather complimentary.
Why' should we write what we didn't
think, or not write what we did think ?
The reader will observe how our

one-time friend but now mortally of-!
fended abuser, Albert Gerig, who rep

resents all the other musicians, has

bounced his Orphean lyre off our

bean. Albert savs. savs he:

It is a rare thing for Ocala to be

fortunate enough to hear singers of
world renowned celebrity like Frieda

Hempel, and your write-up is calculat

ed to hurt our good little city, from a

musical standpoint. Knowing the edi

tor as well as I do, I am charitable

enough to make due allowance for his
lack of knowledge of the subject that
he criticized.

I think Hempel's rendition ol

'Home, Sweet Home,' 'Dixie' and

the 'Blue Danube,' was everything to
be desired. When you take into consid consideration
eration consideration the two latter were originally

written as instrumental and not vocal

selections, only the "true artist" could
have rendered them as Hempel did.

It would have been far better to

have ignored the entire concert, than
to have written what you did."

And yet, less than half an hour be before
fore before he wrote those cruel lines, Albert
told us with his own little voice that
Dixie was a brass band tune, and that

nobody should try to sing it. How are
we to take Albert take him a comin'
or take him a gwine ?

We'll have to disagree with Mr.
Gerig. Dixie can be splendidly sung
by those who know how to sing it. We
have been hearing it sung all our
life Southern women and girls sang
it during the civil war and are singing
it yet. It was written for a "nigger
minstrel" song, and we dare say many
of our readers have heard it well
sung by minstrel troupes. The last
time we heard it well sung was right
on the Temple stage, by a little troupe
of Ocala boys and girls, who were
pulling off a home-made show. They
sang it with a vim and a ring and a
melody that made every nerve of their
hearers tingle, and they received
more hearty applause than Miss Hem Hempel
pel Hempel received. As Dr. Henry or was
it Patrick Henry said, "if this de

serve tar and feathers, go to shucking

your hens."
We have no doubt that Miss Hempel

could sing Dixie beautifully, but not
by singing like she was trying to keep

up with a brass band.

We don't know why Mr. Gerig

hauls the "Blue Danube" into his re
marks. We did not criticise it.
We have no objection to other peo

pie liking Miss Hempel's manner of
singing "Home, Sweet Home," but we
see no reason why we should say we
like it if we don't. It seemed to us

that in singing this song Miss Hem

pel was trying to paint the lily to

express something that expressed it

self. If she had stood up with a pens

ive smile and folded hands and looked

at the roof and let the music pour out
of her as smooth and sweet as syrup

running out of a jug, she would, in our

opinion, have better pleased others as

Lwell as ourself. This is a crude way

of expressing it, but high musical au

thority has declared many times that
operatic singers do not sing simple
songs like "Home, Sweet Home" to
the best advantage. They generally
try to act them as well as sing them,

and they were not written to be sung

that way. While not sticking ourself

up as authority, we have heard a con considerable
siderable considerable number of operatic singers
try to sing such songs, and they never
failed to take most of the music out
of them with superfine execution.
They have pretty much the same suc success
cess success as a pianist in a dance hall would
have trying to jazz "Lead, Kindly
Albert is excruciatingly correct in
refering to our lack of knowledge of
musical technique. When we hear a
lady trying to shriek thru the roots

of her hair, we know she is on highest
C, and when we hear a gentleman try trying
ing trying to grumble thru his socks we
know he ison lowest A and that is
all. As we confessed in an article
written several years ago, music to
us is a sound we like. In that we are
in the same condition of a fix with the
great majority, and it is the great ma majority
jority majority that we write for.
We agree with Mr. Gerig that it
would have been better if we hadn't
written about it at all. And if we had
known Mrs. Murphy was going to
write a very nice article about it for
Monday's paper, we wouldn't have
written about it. But we don't see
how it going "to hurt our good little
city from a musical standpoint." Miss
Hempel didn't come here for any rea reason
son reason but the coin, and she or some
other artist will come any time the
coin is stacked up high enough. These
artists are awful practical about the
coin much more than many of the
people who go to hear them. So let's
