vantages of v0ther Divas.
WHERE ROZE AND 1ATTI FAILED
In a Bole Sot'Burted'to Their Powers, Jnch
Fares Little Better.
OTHEE AH08EHBKTS LAST ETE5IKG
It it getting too c!o6e. to Christinas too
many people rehearsing the role of St.
Nick, for any very large number to be
drawn to !tbe theater, even to see a role in
which there is so much of the "Old Nick"
as in Prosper Meriraee's Carmen. And
yet, while the Grand Opera House was not
at all crowded last night, It was no
Email tribute to tho popularity of Miss Emma
Jnch in our town, that the audience gathered
to witness her first appearance here in Georje
Bizet's fatalistic opera was comparatively so
numerous and, for a .Monday eight house, so
The role of Carmen is a peculiar one, quite
ui genertx. It seems to call for a special brand
ot artistic spirits from its own private locker.
Lucca, Hank, Lchmann have had the key:
little De Lussan and dizzy Delaro gave us sur
reptitious nips of the genuine brand.
There have not been many that could.
Not a few have tried and failed. Marie Boze
gave us a chalk-and-water Carmenx Kelloce
couldn't hold the gypsy within hounds. Even
peerless- Patti was powerless to portray this
witching wanton. Most of the great can
tatrices have let her severely alone.
JTOT SUITED TO HEB TOICE.
It is not a character that lies either vocally or
historically within Miss Juch's own proper
sphere. The part lies too low in pitch for her
voice to show to best advantage: and, further
more, it wants a tone that is tempttnclyt
tauntingly luscious, rather than sweetly
angelic or thrilling and inspiring. More
yet: the role wants a woman who can he
more than archly flirtatious, more than prettily
alluring, more than stubbornly intense; it
wants a natnrein which caprice darts forth
like lightning flasnes against the voluptuous
evening sky of the tropics, a nature over which
grim fatalism hangs like the'portentous calm
that heralds the dread simoon.
It Is no disparagement to Miss Juch to say
that she does not, that, indeed, she cannot, get
the full measure of this strange character.
That she did not, was not her fault. All that
could be asked in the way of earnest, faith
ful, finished and artistic work, she gave
last night. She was. always worth watch
ing and hearing the center of attrac
tion, whenever on the stage. Occasionally as
at the close of the mountain scene, when Car
men would have killed Jote in order to run
after EtcamtUo; and at the close of the opera,
where Jolt was about to kill ber lor continuing
of the same mind she quite rose to the tragic
height demanded. But generally the woman
playing was too good and amiable for the
woman played; certain phases of the latters
character seemed the worse becauselacking the
spontaneity and abandon of your real gypsy.
SUFFERING FSOM THE GRIP.
During the earlier portions of the opera Miss
Juch's voice was delightf ullypnre and strong;
only in seeming to become a trifle fatigued at an
earlier point than usual did the organ show
any signs as was the fact that the singer was
suffering from the effects of la grippe, other
wise influenza in a mild fBrm.
'Miss Basle Leonhart. as Michaela, sang with
some feeling and developed a voice of great
purity and sweetness, especially in the highest
register. She was quite often, however, dis
tressingly out of tune and her acting might
have been on somewhat stronger lines. Miss
Iiizzie Macnichol's rich and velvety contralto
and Miss Marie Freebert's clear soprano were
heard to advantage in the lesser gipsy char
acters. At first Mr. Charles Eedmont's lack of ease
and poise seemed to threaten a rather weak
Jiue for the chief male character. He gained
in strength, however, toward the last as the
dramatic current of events commenced td
draw him out and make him forget himself.
But he never rose quite on to the
leiel of the exceptional opportunities offered
him In this strangle developed role. His voice
is a high tenor of no small power and of a
generally pleasant, tnougn uneven quality.
He sang oftentimes with much taste, though a
Tmtbmr affected mouthing had to pass muster
for emotion once in awhile. In such a role, as
the Pottllion, for example, Mr. Hedta on t woc!ji
no doubt msMt&rn"bis" Xeiyan reputation.
A TfST MORTEM PBOGBAMME.
It is strfinge that the- name of Alonzo Stod
dard, vfoso untimely death last "Wednesday
was Announced in this paper, should
still be on the bills and pro
grarmes as the Toreador. Perhaps, it is
eve stranger that the yet more .famous name
of JTagliapietra should have been omitted,
Kico Manager Locke has been fortunate
enough to secure the latter as Mr. Stoddard's
Successor in leading baritone parts. Mr. Tag
liapletra haTdly needed to be programmed tobe
known. The musical chaps in the gallery rec
ognized and greeted him warmly as be came on;
and before be bad sung many bars of the "Tor
eador Sons," the recognition was general.
Considering tho fact that Mr. Tagllapietra bad
just reached tb j city yesterday and sang for
the first time with the troupe without any re
hearsal, his assumption of Escamitto
was worthy his high repute. His
marked eccentricities in tempo were
excnsable on this ground; they served, any
how, to display Conductor Neuendorf's experi
enced coolness and command of his players.
Mr. Tagliapietra's noble baritone was bandied
with great effectiveness, the favorite air as
signed to him receiving the heartiest encore of
THE MINOE BOLES.
Mr. R N. Knight deserves a word of credit
for his manly impersonation of the Captain,
Zuniga. The minor male roles were taken by
Messrs. Elvin Singer, Frank Ple'ri and T. S.
Guise. The orchestra of two dozen or so
wa nicely balanced, and under Mr. Neuen
dorfs skilled baton handled the score
in a more than usually satisfactory fashion.
While the local military contingent was a bit
more awkward than ctaaLthe company's chorus
was large and more than lively enough to
make np. Its singing, while showing careful
drill lacked in vilume and balance of tone.
That fact made it particularly unfortunate
that the brass band at the bull fight
was not sent behind the scenes, but left
nut in the orchestra, where it absolutely
drowned the triumphant shouts that are Sup
posed to goad Jote on to his deed of jealous
frenzy. The costuming was admirable: the
scenery all that could be reasonably expected.
On account of the length of the operas. Man
ager Wilt desires it stated that hereafter the
curtain will rise promptly at 8 o'clock,if there's
only a corporal's guard in the bouse, and
an armv just entering. To-night "n Trovo
tore" will Be given, with Laura Bellini, Lizzie
Macnicbol, Charles Turner and Tagllapietra
in the cast. C. "V. S.

Harris', and Oilier Piny.
The usual immense andience greeted Miss
Maggie Mitchell as she danced on to the Bijou
stage last night in the girl's dress of Itay.
There is no abatement to the wonderful skill
of Miss Mitchell in her acting she danced with
all her old-time vigor and kept her audience
busy in tears and laughter. The Dispatch
last year reviewed "flay." the newest play in
Miss Mitchell's repertoire. "Ray" is not a won
derful drama, but in It Miss Mitchell has full
scope for the display of ber talents. Mr. Abbott
and the rest of the company are entirely com
petent. Horry Williams' Academy.
Manager Williams chose wisely when he re
served his own Mammoth Specialty Company
for bis Christmas offering, for during the holi
day season a first-class variety entertainment
is most of all welcome. The company which
Mr. Williams honors with his management and
name this year, is one of the best he has ever
gathered together. The performance com
mences with Baker and West, a very funny
team. Ben Mouratt's club swinging is next,
and it is very artistic Tbatchamana, one of
Manager Williams' own importations, a Japan
ese wonder, follows, when Rudolph, the
human flute." entertains nicely. Mr. and
Mrs. Sam Lucas are next seen in a pleasing
little sketch. Then comeralles and Cussick,
eccentrics very funny. Miss Pearl Ardlce
next dances herself into one's good graces.
Lawlor and Thornton are too well known to
need commendation. The same may be said of
the next number, that of Larrv and Lizzie
Smith, great local favorites. Charles Dia
mond' harp playing is also familiar here,
Basco and Roberts follow him with a burlesque
trapeze act that is good. The lengthy bill con
cludes with a great card, Mons. Testa, the
strong man who pulls against two horses or 16
men, and Miss Fanny Onri, whose descent from
the dome of the theater to the stage, suspended
by ber hair, is very thrilling. Mr. Williams is,
indeed, to be congratulated on securing such
as aggregation. It has been playing to big

Would like to see her la something different

The Wild West show, led by a very real-looking
cowboy, with lone hair aad every other
standard characteristic drew crowded houses
to the World's Museum yesterday.
These is a freak of an extraordinary nature
at the Casino Museum, and the stage perform

A Firm Change It Name,
There was a formal meeting of the stock

BY a timely use of Ayer's Hair Vigor.
This preparation has no equal as a
dressing. It keeps the scalp clean, cool,
and healthy, and preserves the color,
fullness, and beauty of the hair.

bottles of Ayer's Hair Vigor my hair
grew thick and glossy and the original
color was restored." ilelvin Aldrlch,
Canaan Centre, K. H.
" Some time ago I lost all my hair in
consequence of measles. After dne
waiting, no new growth appeared. I
then used Ayer's Hair Vigor and my

It has apparently come to stay. Tho
Vigor is evidently a great aid to nature."

the past f onr or five years and find it a
most satisfactory dressing lor the hair.
It is all I could desire, being harmless,
causing the hair to retain Its natural
