SINGS RUSSIAN SONGS David Paulson's Recital For The Children's Hospital. FASHIONABLE FOLK PRESENT In Dialect Of Poorest singer Uave mil timent In Verse. Singer Gave Hints Of Heart Sen- That the plaintive melody of the Russian folk songs is even more touching than the words was shown by the profound effect produced hy the recital given yesterday afternoon by Mr. David Paulson, of Moscow, In the Lyric assembly hall for the benefit of the Hospital for Crippled Children. Although the audience was fashionable and cultured the language of the singer was comprehensible to hut few, if any, of those present. The songs are written in the dialect of the poorest class and the sentiment is that which springs from their hearts. Mr. Taulson has a rich baritone voice of great volume, and in singing the songs of his native land he added an enthusiasm and fervor which was apparent in the expression of his face and in his movements. His eyes helped to tell the story. Miss Stiebler was the accompanist. All of the melodies were simple and contained little to tax the abilities of a well-trained singer. Most of them dealt with primary emotions, such as the mother's love for her baby, the workman's allegiance to duty, the soldier's tale of defeat in war ; but in all the songs there was a touch of the peasant's discontent with his lot. Even in the. songs containing bits of sparkling, quick-moving verse the end is slow and melancholy. This sudden change from the gay to the grave is shown in "Kolybelnaia," the cradle song, the English of which follows : Sleep, my baby, my darling baby, by baby, by ! The moon is looking quietly at your cradle, by baby, by! Thy father was a soldier; he was bayoneted in battle, by baby, by ! Sleep, my, child, ere you know the peasant's trouble, by baby, by. By the time you will grow up and be a help to your mother, by baby, by. They will take you away from me and send you to the front, by baby, by, Thy mother will cry, waiting for her son. to return home, by baby, by, But your tender body will remain, on the battlefield a prey to the wild birds, by baby, by! Although the melody is lost in the translation, the attitude of the Russian Muzhyk to the scheme of things in which he is involved is pathetically shown in the following, which was written by Nekrassoff, the most popular Russian poet: Show me the dwelling where the Russian peasant does not moan? He moans on the mountains and in the valleys, hi moans on the fields and on the plains. Look at the Volga! whose moans resound oyer this great Russian river? Thi3 moan, which is miscalled song, comes from the Borlaks, who are pulling the boats up the stream. Volgal Volga ! with your great body of water in the early springtime, You do not fill up the meadows as much of our country is overfilled with people in distress. In a pamphlet which was distributed to the audience Mr. Paulson had this to say : The Russian volk song closely portrays the true character of the Russian Mozhyk (peasant). More than this, by his song we are able to form an exact opinion as to the religious, economic, social and political conditions prevailing among the Russian peasants. His song is an open book, wherein is written all of the hardships, misery, degradation and enslavement of the Russian peasant for centimes and centuries. It is the most truthful historical document which the cruel Russian censor has been unable to destroy. Through his song the Russian Muzhyk opens his heart wide open, and his tears are flowing in a ceaseless stream tears of lamentations, tears of deep sorrow, tears of entreat-ment. What thepublicplatform and the blessed free press are to the American people that is the volk song to the Russian people. While Russian poets and authors are languishing in banishment or in the prison cells their poetry is embodied in the volk song, and is sung freely, in spite of the prohibition to print it for public distribution. The, Russian song is of sad and mournful melody, for the lot of the Russian peasant is a sad one. The Russian new-born baby is rocked to sleep by a mournful cradle song. The recital was divided Into two parts, the first dealing with the songs of the Mu-zhyks and the second dealing with Little Russia. Mr. Paulson called attention to the difference by the followlngexplanation : Little Russia takes in half a dozen southern and southwestern poorly developed provinces and Its Inhabitants differ in a marked degree from the great Russians in language, customs, usages and culture, and so the fol.- sov.gs of these two peoples are different and distinct in their character. While the grat Russian song is full of serious thought, of earnest aspirations and of vigorous complaint, the Little Russian song is sentimental in its character and of childlike humor; but its melodies are wonderfully charming. The pure sweetness of nature itself is hidden in "The Little Russian Song." "The Red-Haired Family" was one of the most curious of the latter class. Two stanzas follow : , ' Grandfather is red-haired, the same is grandmother. Father, mother, uncle, aunt, sister and brother, . I am red-haired, and married a woman of red hair. For nothing else but Ted hair I can bear. DRY GOODS. 10c. NEW MADRAS, 62C. Excellent Madras, in neat stripes and Checks; Blues, Browns, Green, Grays and Oxblood. ' First Floor. LEXINGTON.

As the Kossack got cut from the mud, the Swede and Tartar began to shiver, The Pole started to run and fell into the river. The tune of the "Song of the Watermelon" was similar to an English musical comedy jingle. The oddity of the theme is shown in the following snatches of the song : Oh, why do you, mother, peal that watermelon ? Are you going, mother, to buy me a husband then? Mother, oh mother, mother dear! Oh, do not peal, mother, that green one. Do not buy me, mother, that ugly one! Mother, oh mother, mother dear! Oh, do peal, mother, the one that is yellow, And pick me out, mother, a pretty-looking fellow. Mr. Paulson closed the recital by singing two Russian classical songs : "Prelestnaia Rybachka" ("Baracole, Beautiful Fishermaiden") Balakircff "Posliedni Razgovor" ("The Last Farewell"), - Derfeldt GOVERNMENT- HOUSE DINNER Guests Of Governor And Mrs. War-field In Annanolis.

This regiment participated in the sicgo of Santiago, and alter its capitulation Mr. Pielert's company was encamped outside of Santiago for a month without any protection from the floods and blistering sun bflyond that afforded by the little army shelter tents. After the war he was for some time the assistant cashier of the Northern Central Railway Company at Canton, but the exposure In Cuba had so undermined his system that he gradually declined in health and about IS months ago was compelled to retire from active duty.
