art, the sIhkIiik of 'I tavld Hlspham and

which greeted these eminent artists in
the Ki'i.tlilimliain theater last evening,
rise very near to Uie pinnacle of pos
sible artistic achievement. In neither
Instance tvus a single artillre employed
to Klve meretricious advantage to work
Vthose own superb merit made it, as it
seemed, incomparable. One may with
out any exaggeration pronounce their
concert the richest musical repust ever
placed within reach of a Northeastern
Pennsylvania audience; and the only
point left open for resret was that
these should have been a vacant seat.
Mr. Sievekiiif.', pale, melancholy
looking und a typical Hollander in ap

Since there Is naturally more or less
curiosity conccinlnu the personality of
this vcuni; Hutch virtuoso who Is be
lieved by many clitics to be a promls
ini; rival for Paderewski's hitherto un
chblleiiBed laurels, it may not bo out
of place to suy that one meeting him
away from his Instrument would be
very unlikely to think of him as one
of the three or four greatest living
pianists. He has, to be sure, tho aure
ole of bristly hair which Pad'Tewski
made the fashion for pianoforte virtu
osi; but there Is surely no hint in the
stidid countenance, the larife und one
might almost say ungainly hands, or
in the man's general air of Impassivity,
of the fluent and Intensely poetic ar
tistic temperament within. it lakes
the instru ut tu unlock that secret,
and even then one loses all thought of
the player in his alternately sensuous
und voltaic playing. .
MIS OPKXIXU Nl'MHKP..
For Ids opening number he chor.e
lleethoven's famous Moonlight sonu's,
followed for purposes of contrast by
Chopin's fantasle In F minor (op.
The Interpretation of the former was
richly sympathetic, notably ho in the
udaigo. 'which perhaps suffered from
the audience's Interest in the pltyer

For his second number he offered
three compos it Ions of his own m In
teresting study built upon the tlleme:
of the angelus bell: an exceedingly
dainty and poetic bit of harmonized
melody culled "Forest Fchoes;" and a
valso de concert of exceptional 1 i II
llance. For an encore he gave Mendel
ssohn's "With Wings of Song," sound
ing Hip melody on the piano with the
distinct ncsK ami purity and almost with
the warmth of Ihe human voice. His
third number comprised a romance by
Tw haikowsky ; a minuet by Hizet and
Moszkowski's familiar tarentelle In O

best opportunity -of the evening to ex
hibit the marvels of his truly wonderful
To one who undertakes to speak of
Mr. Pdeveklng's playing as the writer
of this notice does, without critical
knowledge or pretension, and only with
il wish to record impressions, there is
left to lie said simply that very rarely,
indeed, does It come within one'sjiriv
llcge to hear nn artist unitine; so inti
mately the poetic temperament with
a manual mastery of the piano forte
leaving, it would seem, absolutely noth
ing to lie desired. He is not only a
player grent in technique, but one even
greater In his ability to subdue every
light and shade of the tone colors to his
leading of the composer in hand.
Ml!. I'.ISPIIAM'S SlNUINC.
And now, how shnll we do Justice to
Mr. lilsphani? To say that he is tfie
prince of baritones, with a voice that
even If umiiaslered would make liltn
famous And It Is mustered thoroughly
and with a dramatic power, a fine
ness of matured Intelligence and a
magnetic presence which before ho
sounds a note, prepare his auditors for
the' enjoyment that is to follow. Is to
say scarcely more than n fraction of
what ought to be said if one would
convey to those who have never heard
him an idea of Ids nittiits. His llrst
number was a song cycle by Heethoven:
his next, Loewe's ballade, "Archibald
Douglas" which was attempted, but
not suns, at a recent chamber conceit
followed by a Schubert song nnd then
by a Schumann; und his last, two new
nnd two old English songs, giving op
portunity for the display of his many
sided lyrical talents.
It would be of little purpose to try
to fidlow him in detail through tiiese
renditions; perhaps the most satisfac
tory disposition of the whole matter is
to sav that when one bus heard I'.isip
hnni one does not wish ever again to
hear an ordinary baritone In any of
the selections which Hispham has used.
He, too, wus received with most en
thuslajiic favor, and was good nam red
enough to be unexpectedly generous in
recognition of it, responding to three

LLMHURST TANNERY BURNED.

Fire broke out In the Elmhurst tan

two hours time it was reduced to ushes.
The building belonged to the Scranlon
Gas .mil Water company, the tannery
having been purchased by it recently,
with the intention of demolishing it. as
the bun rd of health complained that it
was polluting the lloarlng Ilrook. The
machinery had all been removed by the
previous owners, the Pnlon Tannery
company. The loss therefore Is trilling.
The building was situated on the
Ilouring Ilrook. opposite the old Dun
ning homestead und was a very old
structure. Il was lr feet long and
fifty feet wide, and on the south were
open sheds extending nearly seventy
live feet farther. Owing to the fact
that the building was unoccupied the

broke through the roof and as there are

GREAT SHOW THIS WEEK.
.Malinger Davis Oilers a Fine Per
lorinniicc to His Patrons.
"Little Hoy Hlue" Is the bill at Davis'
theater this week, and It is not saying
too much to state that it Is one of the
best bills that the house hus presented.
It is a pantominc with pauses at ap
propriate Intervals for specialties.
Harry Thorne is the clown and Matt
McCoruiick eusuys the roll of panta
loon. Among the scenes presented are
"Moonlit Abbey," "Farm of Plenty."
"Police Station und Shoe Shop," "The
Mystic Chamber," "The Palace of Nov
ell y," "Maker Shop and Fire Works
Store," "Abode of Darkness," and "The
Grotto of Happiness," In each scene
there is a different specialty introduced
by such famous purveyors of fun and
bewilderment as Dick Leggett, change
artist and vocalist; Alice Jennings,
Eddie O'P.rlen und little Anna Mabel
O'Hrlen, in soiil's, dunces and a novel
sparring exhibition; Maria Wynne,
songs nnd clog dances; the three Menus,
contortionists and knockabout come
dians, and Levinne und Month, equili
brists. The feature of the entertainment Is
the sparring of Alice Jennings. She IS
a clever boxer and manages to make
thing quite lively for her spaning
purtner, Eddie O'Hrlen, who is un old
lioxlng Instructor. They gave a three
round bout without any more hippo
dromlng than is seen in the average
sparring match on the stage. The way
Aiiss Jennings handles her "dukes"
would cause the ordinary lightweight to
