Tho low point of the wholo market was
reached shortly bofora noon, nnd then sup

moans wipe out all of tha declines, how
oer. As la usually the case, a mass of
bargain hunters put In their appearanco

steady the market. Impairment of mar

of tho morning. Call money held fairly

How much can jou mix our methods In

to charm tho ear? Kor Mr Herbert's hook
Is frankly n patch quilt, with the patches
probably sewed on by some ono eleo. There
Is operetta In it, so that Mine Scheff can
sing nnd look ltnclous or sad Thero
Is farce of tho sort in which people dash
In and out of doors. In tho Cohan fashion
There Is the soxtet of show girls, nfter tho
mnnncr of "Adele" and the I'rlncoss Thea

pastorale" done by a spry young lady In
pink tarltan All this blend of styles makes
tho situations seem a long tlmo between
thinks, nnd when they nrrlvo they are not
unronrlous enough The production needs
either more violent humor or nn humor nt
all For you can hnrdly split the difference
between operetta nnd farce In thu. case
tho absence of side-splitting momcntH Is
often forgotten In appreciation of a. libretto
that Is in capital taste, with a nicely pro
fessional point of view behind It: some apt
rhymes nnd a cast that is top-notch
For ono, Mme Scheff Is singing well and
looking ten times moro youthful than she
did in her last audevllle ilslt Mr De

Of course, thero Is a lot of music, and
how we dread going Into that part of the
evening' Not that It Is bnd, but Just be
cause It is old by this time and not particu
larly notablo. Thero Is the drum song for
the star, with echoes of "Mile. Modiste,"
and the elaborate farewell to her lover, a

numbers for the rest Considerable skill
has gone Into tho orchestration of It nit.

What tho atidlenco seemed to like most
