More Hylands!

This has been a VERY productive day in my Fred. Hylands research, and i've even found another piece of sheet music just a few minutes ago, that isn't self published, and he's with a completely different lyricist here, and it's in the vicinity of when he was writing music with Len Spencer and when he was Columbia's pianist.
this was published in 1899, and I'm sure when he played this, he played it with more syncopation, as that's how he seems to have played on the cylinders he's on. He's truly a wonderful pianist that should be more acknowledged by Ragtimers everywhere. He was a REAL Ragtimer(and an early one!) just like Jay Roberts or Brun Campbell.
