The blazer's dead, Its candy hues
No lancer tennis courts adorn;
For trousers white and russet shoes
Our sweet Adonis has to mourn.
Bis lot is hard as nature's is,
Whose charms rude winter doth assail.
Hers snow and desolation, his
Lawn ties and inky swallowtail !
The craze for the new and novel is espe-
' dally noted in the early receptions and
I weddings of this season, and devotees of
fashion are never so happy as when intro
ducing a unique feature oi some kind.
A certain amount of stereotypeness must
1 necessarily be an attribute of a wedding or
a reception, but the aim, dnring the season,
will be to make each event distinctly prom
inent by oddities in dress and floral decora
tions. The wedding bell, lovers' knot, horse
shoe, wishbone and similar sentimental
ideas that were very popular in the past
would not be tolerated at the present time;
everything must be distinctly individual.

The Woman Hater
Gray A Stevens'
The above are the theatrical attractions for
TO AN ACTRESS.
The art which makes your eyes so bright,
Your cheess all roses, red and white,
A cupid's bow your rosy lips.
Is well enough; I kiss the tips
Of those fair fingers for the boon
Of so much beauty. But as soon
I would have had your acting show
Of art a braver, brighter glow.
More art where art is most in place,
Less art upon your pretty face.
The theaters have again reason to rejoice
over the week's business. It was large at
all the houses. Some of the andiences at
the Grand Opera House were phenomenally
large, the number of children being simply
without precedent. The Bijou Theater
could hardly hold all the people who wanted
to see the Byrons, and at Harris' Theater at
every performance the "standing room only"
sign was displayed at every presentation.
By the way that welcome sign has been ex
hibited outside Harris' Theater for 20 consecu
tive days excluding Sundays.
THE women and children generally accented
"Little Lord Fauntleroy" in the heartiest way.
Those who were most seriously disappointed
were either unable to grasp and appreciate the
charm of the story or, and these were the more
numerous, those who demanded not Mrs. Bar
nett's story set upon the stage, but a drama of
the legitimate order built ud in the orthodox
way, with climax and anti-climax.
'little Lord Fauntleroy" has enchanted a
host of little ones, anyhow, who accepted the
pictures ot romantic nobility as Mrs. Burnett
planned them. The novelty and simple flavor
of the stage story His hardly a play at all
refreshed many a grown man, too.
This week Mr. Roland Reed shows nsthe
light of his countenance once more. It Is
reasonable to believe that "A Woman Hater"
is a very much better article than "Cheek," in
which Mr. Reed was last seen here.
The comedy farce "Zigzag" is the Bijon's
offer, and it has been improved sin ce last season.
Theater this week. "Zig-Zag" has been clayed
in all the principal cities of America. It
abounds in fun and song and dance. There is
no end to the comedy surprises. The mytho
logical minuet introduced in the third act is a
pretty feature. The whole of the stage is
draped with massive black portiers while the
classically costumed dancers glide through tbe
graceful minuet. Miss Anna Boyd sustains
the nart of Flirt with charming abandon. Her
songs are all sparkling and' her dancing
sprightly and exceedingly clever. Miss Mane
Bockell plays the nart of Rene Btaley. Mis
Bockell is a favorite vocalist and actress, while
Miss Alice Vane makes a rery austere Mrs.
Hopper. Mr. Samuel Reed portrays one of the
iayest of Jays from Jaysville. Then there Is
Mr. Alfred C. Wheelan whose -BoartngMUl is
a bit ot character acting. Messrs. Frank
Fisher and George Clark? "Phantom Stair
case" act is a clever performance. Mr. George
Kyle is a quiet comedian, and Mi. Charles
Phillips in the role of Bertie Staley.
and Mr. Will H. Bray as
.Ei'ermonr, the author, sing and dance
with remarkable ease. Miss Anna Boyd's
costumes are elaborate, and nothing like them
has ever before been seen out ot comic opera.
It is said. Tbe Philadelphia Timet said a few
weeks ago of this play: "TUlotson's Comedy
Company returned to the Walnut after an
absence of a year, and the bright sayings, pretty
costumes and lovely girls captured tbe large
audience from the beginning. 'Zig-Zag just
bubbles over with fun tbrongbout the threo
acts, and has proven itself worthy of the suc
cess achieved throughout the country. Miss
Anna Boyd as Flirt, tbe incorrigible, won many
friends by her charming singing and dancing,
and Samuel Reed In his quaint character of
Jaggt Green, the country cousin, was exceed
inely funny. Alfred C. Wheelan as Soaring
Bill, the howling cowboy from Tombstone,
looked savage enouch to f tighten stouter hearts
than that of Jaggt. An Interesting feature of
the programme was the mythological dance of
Apollo, Venus. Mercury, Hebe, Helios and
Ma. Roland Reed, an actor of excellent
reputation and one of the leading exponents ot
refined comedy now upon the American stage,
will make bis fitst appearance here after an
absence of nearly three years at the Grand
Opera House on Monday evening, when ha will
present what has proven the greatest of his
many popular successes, "The Woman Hater,"
an eccentric comedy from the pen of that
clever dramatist, the late David D. I Joyd, for
merly an editorial writer on the New York
Tribune. A play that can play to the capacity
of the theater in New York, Boston. Philadel
phia and Chicago and receive universal com
mendation from the press of those cities must
necessarily possess merit. The story of tne
play deals with tbe adventures of one Samuel
Bundy (Mr. Reed), a supposed woman hater,
who in reality adores the sex and it needs no
stretch of the imagination to discover tbat any
amount of amnsement Is to be gotten out of
the entanglement that Bundy gets into when
be becomes engaged to no less than three differ
ent women at one time and bis final carrjlng
off to a private lunatic asylnm by mistake and
in the hands of a thoroughly competent com
pany such as is Mr. Reed's support. During
the play Mr. Reed Introduces a number of new
musical .numbers, including a topical parody
from the prolific store of Sydney Rosenfeld.
In Mr. Reed's company is a young Pennsyl
vania girl, Miss Isadore Rush, who made her
debnt recently In Boston with great success.
She is said to be talented and quite attactive.
AT Harris' Theater the favorite Gray and
Btephens Company will be the attraction this
week. For Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
"Tbe Old Oaken Backet" will be given, and
"Saved From the Storm"for the balance of the
engagement. Miss Minnie Oscar Gray, who
appears as Mttsenger Boy U in the first named
play, is a great favorite in this city, and Is
without doubt one of tbe best impersonators
of heroic boys now before tbe public She has
decided to confine herself to that line of busi
ness; therefore she has had the popular au
thor. Frank Dumont, rewrite "Saved From
tbe Storm" in which she will play the bov
hero. Miss Gray has surrounded herself with
an entirely new and very strong company, in
cluding inree ciever singing comeaians. itiessrs.

are potent factors in the unravelling of the
AT the Academy of Musio the attraction
this week will be Gillett's World en Wheels
Vaudeville Company, Its members present,
besides a capital variety performance, a unique
and remarkable exhibition of what can be done
on tbe bicycle. Tbe dexterity and grace with
with which the five members of the Gillett
family ride the bicycle is astonishing, and fas
cinating as well. In other specialties tbe com
pany includes tbe MIdgleys, Emerson and Cook,
Smith and Post, Agnes Atherton, Ripley and
Risbee and others.
The World's Museum on Federal street,
Allegheny, continues to attract large audiences
day and night. This week Manager Geary an
nounces that be has a good minstrel company
and tbe only original ossified man. But there
are fifty other attractive features in the muse
Draffs "Seven Ages" appear to be a go.
Maggie Mitchell is now Mrs. Charles
Fktenss of Mn.Beuchler Beatrice More
the young Allegheny actress, presented a beau-
tlf ul basket of roses to her on Thursday even
ing at the Bijou Theater. i
Minnie Masdebn, when traveling on the
road, is said to affect green veils and nibble
Saratoga chips. She Is an omnivorous novel
reader, and affects the eccentricities of Bern
hardt. H. B. Conway Is very suggestive, says 27ie

line Intensity that wo have often admired,
while we criticised it. In the elder actor.
The Jefferson-Florence combination is a
tremendous Buccess, and business at the Star
Theater, New York, is thelargest that has ever
been known at that bouse. Tho Combination
of snch brilliant comedians as Joseph Jeffer
son, W. J. Florence and Mrs. John Drew in
one company has never before been equaled,
and their success is not to be wondered at.
Evans and Hoet will be the next attraction
at the Bljon, presenting again th'eir ever green
success "A Parlor Match." They are on a re
turn trip from California, where their business
has been phenomenal. Their company this
season is the strongest they have ever carried.
New music, new songs and new dances have
been introduced into the "Parlor Match," until
It is almost a new show.
"Bluebeard, Jr.; or, Fatlma and the
Fairy," the brilliant spectacular extravaganza
of the Chicago Opera House, Is In Its last week
at the Broad. Street Theater. Philadelphia. The
niece has been received with the utmost favor
by the press of tbat city, the Times and Prew
affirming that no such magnificent spectacular
effects have ever been witnessed in America.
The ballets are described as being marvelous
in their artistic groupings, and the marches and
ensembles as of the most effective character.
It is claimed that "Bluebeard, Jr.," Is the most
expensive organization traveling. It comes to
this city at an early date.
"I hate been told that 'Josephine, Empress
of the French,' is not for the masses," said
Mile Rhea, speaking of her new play. "On tho
contrary. I say that It is for the masses. The
language, though excellent, Is not of that ob
scure kind employed by writers who strive to
conceal tbe paucity of their ideas with a multi
tude of sonorous phrases which signify noth
ing. The language is natural, and so are tbe
situations of tlie play. One needs only have a
heart and a soul to appreciate 'Josephine,' and
thoy are lound among the so-called lower
classes as well as among tbe highly cultured.
Therefore, I say the play Is for the masses as
well as for the more educated, and such my ex
perience with it has shown to bo the case."
A good many stories are told aboothowstar
avoid playwrights, who make theirattacks with
huge manuscripts which they are always ready
to read. The other day Roland Reed dodged a
very persistent one from whom he thought ho
made bis escape. Not so, however. The crafty
playwright bad watched him go to his room
and followed. Mr. Jack, Mr. Reed's manager,
was waiting for him, when some one knocked
at tbe door. Jack opened it. and Reed recog
nized the voice. "Talk to him outside a min
ufp " whisnered Reed to his manager. He did.
and when both entered Reed had gone. -Jack
got rid of the playwright, bnt ten minutes later
Reed made his appearance stained with red
paint from head to heels. He had gone down a
newly painted fire escape, and the dodge cost
him just SOU
In a slightly sarcastic vein The Black Cat
speaks of Manager Harry Miner, of New York,
as follows: Tbe pet hope of this genial mana
ger is, I understand, to some day build a temple
of art on tbe banks of tbe Hudson, where
every form of entertainment, from Shakes
peare and Moliere to glass-eating, can be given
simultaneously in different sections of the
building. Wax works, lunch counters, an
cient sculpture, bathing tanks, ring shows,
monkev houses, Ada Rehan in comedy, Salvint
in a rage, Fanny Rice In plush breeches, bal
loon ascensions, oratory by Mr. Depew, lect
ures on belles lettres by John Stetson, pie-eating
contests, chats on millinery by the "Per
sonal Intelligence Man" of the Ilerald,
anecdotes about graves by William Winter,
sunny weather, and oyster stews, are to be ob
tainable here at Varying prices. One door will
lead you into the presence of Patrick Reilly
executing a Battery Park monologue, while
another will take yon to the sacred feet of
'Lillian Russell, as she sings tbe world away to
the palaces beyond the blue.
"French actresses are inclined to over-paint,"
writes Alfred Thompson, "and some become
almost as much caricatured as tbe Japanese
beauty of tbe Tea House, with ber whitened
cheeks and crimson eyelids. I once took Sarah
Bernhardt to task for painting her lips scarlet
in broad day. Sarah, who is one ot the most
charming camarades when she likes, was not
in tbe least offended, but laid it all to habit.

One of the novel features of the Exposition
was the registering of names by tbe Singer
Manufacturing Company, and drawing, at
the close of the Exposition, for one of their
elegant drop cabinet machines.
Every lady, regardless of the machine she
was using, bad an opportunity of drawing
this machine by registering her name at the
stand, and over 12,000.availed themselves of
it. Of these 12,000 ladies, 80 per cent are
now using Singer machines.
The drawing was conducted at the Expo
sition in the simplest aud fairest manner
possib'e. At 9 o'clock two little girls were
selected from the audience, and requested to
draw the tickets, two disinterested gentle
men acting as judges. The lncky number
was 3,831, held by Mrs. Emma Zimmerman,
of Salem, O., and she was at once notified of
her good fortune by telegraph. Although
the Exposition is now closed, the Singer
Manuiacturing Company will continue
their exhibit at their main office, Ho. 8 Sixth

A HEART-ON A MOTE.
Ah I all the while you sang to me
My heart was singing too;
Was singing, singing o'er and o'er
"I'm waiting, love, to woo."
Ton sang of summer time's farewell,
Of autumn's chilly rain,
But cheerful sang my heart ot love
A passing sweet refrain.
At last the final chords you struck,
You took with ease hich C.
And as you took it, love, you snatched
My heart away from me.
A charity concert of altogether extraor
dinary proportions is now first announced to
be given at Old City Hall on Tuesday, No
vember 19, tor the benefit of that most
worthy and practical institution, the Pitts
bunr Domestic Training School. With the
imposing array of "patronesses" represent
ing this community's Four Hundred, this
column has not much concern; but it is just
as imposing for all that.
The bright particular star of the occasion
will be Hiss Emma Juch, who comes upon
specially moderate terms and in spite
of great hindrances as a dis
tinct favor on ber part and that
of Manager Charles E. Locke toward certain
of the managers of the charity in particular
and the dear pnblic of Pittsburg in general.
We have all heard this sort of thing before;
in the present case the favor is indisputable.
Miss Juch will have to hurry from the
theater in Baltimore to the train in the
costume Marguerite has just died ill; it is
not designed as a street cown. She will
likewise have to hurry off from the concert
to the train here. Furthermore, she has lately
declined several offers of concert engagements
much more convenient and remunerative.
Hence the special favor alleged above.
Miss Juch will appear in two numbers. So
will twoof tbe local organizations DartlclDatine:
the Poco-a-Poco Orchestra and the Philhar
monic Society which will, respectively, open
and close each part of the programme. All
other performers are limited to one appear
ance in order to give time for a big list All
the local participants, by the way, have volun
teered their services gratis.
As far as now made oat the roster includesi
Miss Agnes Vogel, Miss Mamie Reuck, Mr.
Harry B. Brockett, Mr. William Guenther. Mr.
J. H. Gittines and Messrs. Beidle, McCausland,
Bearl and Wagner, forming the Haydn Quar
tet. It is expected to secure several others as
well known or still more so.
A prime novelty which it is hoped to secure is
the phonograph the gentleman's (no lady's;
it talks back) first concert appearance in Pitts
burg. Negotiations are in progress with Mr.
Edison personally, and if they are successful,
the audience will have a chance to discrimin
ate between brass bands bottled and on tap.
There is a deal of sound sense In Mr. Hender
son's remarks in the New York Timet apropos
of last month's Worcester Festival. The fol
lowing extract therefrom may be especially
commended to our Mozart Club to prick the
sides of its lageine Intent to have analytical
and descriptive programmes at its concerts
To suddenly confront a raw public with a
series of concerts of the highest order would
unquestionably be a more than hazardous ex
periment But musical taste is less difficult of
development than tbe Worcester County Musi
cal Association imagines. The first step wonld
be to rigoronsly exclude all music not of tbe
very finest quality. Tbat does not necessarily
imply the performance of the largest and most
senous works. The smaller jewels of the great
musical treasure box might be first exposed
without dazzling tbe public eye, and afterward
the larger gems mlgbt be produced. For in
stance the Worcester public bas never been
invited to feast on such melodious and perspicu
ous works as Schumann's D .minor symphony
and Mozart's "Reqalem."
"There Is an abundance of such works which
could be presented to the Worcester public
without danger of causing a fit of mental indi
gestion. And then the programme book could
be made very much more instructive than It
now is with the assistance of a little more logi
cal arrangement ot the compositions. At the
festival just ended three large choral works
were performed Mendelssohn's 'St Paul,'
Sullivan's 'Golden Legend' and Haydn's 'Crea
tion.' They were given in the order named.
Now, If Haydn's work bad been placed
first. Mendelssohn's second and Sullivan's
third, the programme book would naturally
have contained a brief and lucid account of the
growth of the oratorio and cantata, explaining
the difference in character and treatment be
tween works of Haydn's day and those of the
present and Intervening periods. Such an
essay, accompanied by the performed Illustra
tions, would have materially advanced musical
education in tbe community.
The same process could be followed out in
the instrumental and vocal music, and no loss,
but rather an increase in the variety of tbe
programmes would follow. Foundations would
thus be laid for taste and intelligence which
would enable the Worcester pnblic to digest
happily a feast of the new romantic school lbe
methods and purposes of to-day would be ex
plained in tbe programme book, and in a short
time the music-loving public of the city, which
is too large and Important to be so neg
lected, would learn to understand and ap
preciate cotemporaneous musical thought
This would result in a higher and fuller com.
prehension of the works of the older masters,
for obviously those who have climbed to thn
pinnacle of the mountain command a wider
view than those who have ascended but
half way. Systematic educational effort is
what tbe Worcester festivals need, and the
labor is one that maybe undertaken without
fear. It has never tailed yet, not even In busy,
money hunting New York."
Thb Dispatch presents its compliments to
the diseiteemed American Musician, with
thanks for its latest practical exposition of
what in a former issue it called the "amenities
of decent journalism."
The use of such petty terms as "boot-lick-ers"
and "cur" cannot be regarded as out ot
place In a paper that shows its conspicuously
poor taite in personally villlfylng Mr. Higgin
son because of his liberality to the Boston Sym
phony Orchestra, and that displays its preten
tious ignorance In declaring that the tours of
tbat orchestra and Theodore Thomas bare cre
ated a competition harmful to local orchestral
efforts In the various places visited.
But tho poor Mutician, so-called, is ratber to
be pitied than blamed. After all it has said on
the subject, it conld hardly help feeling dis
composed just now over tbe fact tbat Mr.

and has auite as easily shown his auita snffl.

At the beginning it cannot be too strongly
impressed upon tbe pnblic mind tbatmncn
very much, for the near and the farther future
depends upon their cordial support of the
Mozart Club. With its extraordinary plan of
campaign, already encouraged by the liberality
of Mr. Carnegie and others, there Is only needed
a reasonable response from tbe public at large
to insure the greatest musical things that
Plttsbnrg of herself bas ever accomplished.
Theodore Thomas deserves well of our pnb
lic also. His testimonial tour has beenenthu
slasticallyeceived elsewhere, and our town
must not be found wanting. In sending in tbe
notes for programmes, let us hope tbe dear
finbjic will bear in mind their privilege of nam
ng single pieces as well as whole programmes.
If two or three of tbe mot "popular" numbers
conld be introduced into the first or tbe third
of the programmes proposed, everybody wonld
be pleased. The second programme unchanged
would scarcely satisfy many of the more In
telligent music lovers.

Thb committee of Leeds Festival, which

Sword of Argantyr," and tbe whole of tbe
third act ot "Tannbanser," formed the even

cantata, "God's Time Is Best," Bchubert's
mass in E flat, and Handel's
"Ads and Galatea" were down for
the morning of Thursday; while for the even

to a libretto by the late Dr. Huefler, and Dr.
Mackenzie's "Pibroch," written for Sarasate,
were tbe chief attractions. No less Interest

Tbe Art of Singing.
It is with great pleasure that we draw the
attention of our music loving public to the
fact that Mr. H. B. Brockett, Jr., has re
turned to our city and opened his studio for
the teaching of singing in all its branches,
drawing room, concert, oratorio and opera.
Mr. Brockett Is possessed of a tenor voice of
rare excellence and extent; has studied
under the best masters in Europe, so that
he is both practically and theoretically
competent to give the very best and most
artistic instruction in the art of singing.
Mr. Brockett already numbers among his
pupils quite a number of our most accom
plished and cultivated amateurs, and his
time is being rapidly filled up; he has some
hours yet at his disposal, and we would
strongly impress upon those who desire first
class instruction In singing, that Mr.
Brockett is the man, and that it they want
the benefit of his talents they had better
apply at once. His room is No. 531, Bis
