People who ko to tin entertainment
and watch with crltcul Kane the per
formance' of one evening Klvu little
thought to the .tticrilleo anil expendi
ture of energy which luive tnnde the
perfection and cnioothnests of detail
a possibility. Kvcry night the mem
bora of the opera "cast unci the dances
are devoting time and nervous force
to the patient, persevering task of
achieving satisfactory results In the
entertainment which not only brings
them no tangible personal return but
entails considerable expense outside
the hard work. They are practicing
early and late and are .practically giv
ing up these "weeks' to Hie proposed af
fair. It Is a satisfaction to bo able to state
definitely that the opera will bo a suc
cess financially as well as artistically.
The best seats for the evening perform
ance are nearly all sold, and It Is hoped
the demnnd for matinee tickets will
be as urgent. .
The rehearsals are being conducted '
toy Mrs. Harry DIxMe, who Is working
Indefatlgably to perfect the vu'ious
roles and choruses. Miss Grace Fprngie ;
la accompanist. The programme is to
bo brief, with nil the Intermissions
lined wit n cnarmlnir dances and tab
leaux. The musical portion at this early
date exceeds all anticipations ns to Its
excellence. The chorus is cspecia ly
good. The entire affair will he a geit
credit to Madame Tlmberman-Kan-dolph
and her pupils. The diagram
does not open until next Friday, si
that those who purchase tickets need
not fear but that they can secii'o seats.

Air. P. Hopklnson Smith likes Scran
ton. He said so frankly to sovetal i:o-
ple Thursday night. He liked the size
and the personnel of his audience nnd
said that It was one of the most ap
preciative he ever had. The delicate
little touches of humor, as when the
colonel majestically presents his card:
"Colonel Carter, Carter Hull, Cartor
vllle, Virginia," and the author stated
"He does not write 1. S. A. for tha
reason that ho does not consider that
It will add dignity to his title," wero
acknowedirod with the brightest littlo
tipples of enjoyment all over the house.
Air. Smith says that most of his audi
ences regard tills portion of the pro
gramme with tlie heaviest solemnity.
The Young Ladles' society may as
well make a standing annual engage
ment with Air. Smith during the term
of ills natural life, for the people of this
city will invariably throng after him,
even if he should never write a new
line and should continue to read their
old favorites. It may gratify patrons
to know that the society realized more
than WOO. Last night he read before
a cultured body of listeners in Honos
dale. He Is about to publish a new
book, whose scenes arc laid in the
South in the period just preceding tho
war.. He never makes the mistake of
tiling the public with hastily prepared
books, but when every one longs for
something In the same carefully stud
led line from his pen, a new work
comes out, so well written, tho lan
guage so faultless, tho human nature
so deep, .so true and lovable, that his
vast public reads it with slneerrst sat
isfaction and then proceeds to re-read
the other books whose characters ho
has made familiar as the dear ones at
our own firesides.

Kve's error did not so much roll

Kiiln I'oimtoi' us In riulcavorlut; to es
tablish stvlt'M In dress.
This dress question Is liucotitlnrt
soinelhliiff inoro than n burden It Is a
nlKht inure, a horror, a noisome vnm
plro which Is sllllltiir tho breath of Up
raeo or woinonklnd In civilization. To
look nt it counter of dress a turfs nnd
nilorninonlH hi a went 1k,I today Is
for a wonian or modurato nientii! lo fuel
appalled xxlth the wild Impossibility or
attempting to appear up-lo-date.
.lust as we had reached thu delect
able, spot where we hud achieved the
tallor-nown, a niarvcl of sultnblllty for
every purpose: shupl.e, severe In Us
lines, plain In Its details yet absolutely
correct fur most day occasions since
thu removal of thu Jacket revealed a
bodice which could not bo limited In
Um elaboration Just when this inlllcn
lal preliminary hud been itttntmal.
tilonis" comes the edict for trimmed
dresses. No more severity of finish, no
I more discreet stltchlin? and one loiv(l
I effects. No more olcRant simplicity. All
' this la chunked, Such absurdities of de
tail! Such extravagance of decoration.
Such limitless expenditure, as was
once only dreamed of In court life! The
plain little frock must he relegated to
morning shopping. The cloth dress
must become a garment fearfully and
wonderfully made, with an Infinitude
of vests, a luxuriance of garniture, a(
bote-nolr as to cost. For bo it known
that the plain gown Is no more. It ban
j gone the way of all good things and
must give place io the ornate, the
flamboyant, the giddy and tlnselly.
The most ordinary cloth costume oiw
sees noxv In the best shops, has un
ilnrslcovps In the coat, nnd Is built on
elaborate linos, as to rovers and freaks
of finish nt tho hot torn. There Is some
thing incongruous in the Idea of undor
! sleeves or oven thu loose fitting bishop
' sleeves now so much In vogue, In a
street gown.
As to vests; one tan cloth costume
meant for (ho street has no less than
four different waist coat effects, all in
use at the same time. First there was
tho coat proper, a cloth cut away from
the front and finished with gold braid.
Just inside, showing only a line of
color, was a soft pale blue broad cloth
with tiny gold buttons set close to
gether, within that was a vest of white
cloth elaborately embroidered in bl-iclc
chenille and and gold, the rovers
thrown back over the others. Still
beneath this was a full pouching
blouse effect of Persian panne vel
vet combining the tints of tan, blue
ami white with a dash of Pompellan
red. Expensive? Of course. That is
why the modistes make styles. Hut
how discouraging it all is!
Yet tlo you know there was never
such an opportunity for tho deft fing
ered girl, the wonian with ideas and
time and a knowledge of needle work
as today? These gold trimmings, the'ie
rich Persian' embroideries so much in
vogue cost tremendously. Why a little
band for tho hat is marked $6.00, al
though with Its yard or a trltie more In
I length its glitter of gold and. bronze or
! silver, it makes almust the enure ti mi
ming. It could be absolutely repro
duced for one-tenth of that sum. All
needed would be a package of gold
paillettes (cost 10 cents) some bits of
tiny gold cord and a supply of tltv: gold
thread. These sewed In a pattern on
net or following out the design of a
chantilly lace will make as elaborate
a strip for a velvet hat as could be de
sired. To add richness to the effect cut
out a flat flower design from black or
brown velvet and appllriuu it at Inter
vals, following tho border with a Una
of gold thread. A wild rose, with
stem: a leal design, a conventionalized
blossom of any sort will give an indo
sirabiy rich effect.
.. 4
As to the Persian embroidery it costs
$ a yard at tho least calculation
when sold by tho piece. T examined
some the other day which seemed a
mass of glittering sumptuous color.
And what tlo von Mjpposo?
It was simply tho Persian velvt with
the Intricate palm leaf design which
looks like a Hokalira. rug in coioi'ing,
and tho linos were followed out with a
fine gold bra 111, the brilliant rods and
rich blues gleaming between. Ymt can
buy that Persian velvet for $1.10 up
ward. The gold braid costs about "0
cent's it piece, of twelve yards. It makes
the most gorgeous trimming for collars
or rev.'is and a III tlo .scrap of it will
brighten up a whole costume and Ionic
luxurious indeed. The cost would !)
The beautiful gold laces one seen
antl the expense of which Is so gr at '
can easily bo copied with coarse Uus- '
thin lace and gold thread. It is a
pleasant and fascinating work and will
give many possibilities for Christmas

certain sections of tho city, noticeably
tho patrons of tho Laurel Hill lhi",
wliero the service lins been very Irro- i
giilar. liut tlie new met hod has been
the source of troubles to tho conduc- i
tor. "Hotelier I've answered moron
fifteen hundred questions already,"
mourned a conductor on that division
at the closo of the first day.
"They want to know how close tho
enrs run, and by thivthue 1 figure that
nut they ask how many theiv a;o an
hour, and I forgot to ring up fares.
Then they try to make mo tull how
long tho compuny'll keep this thing
up, of having enough cars nt noon so't
they don't have to hung onto tho ren
tier, and when I tell 'em 'Hlaniotlnn,'
they look perky, us much as to say,
'1 told you so,' Then they want ma to
commit myself to stating tho exuec
minute when the earn will pass a
certain corner und while I'm a try
ing to make a rough guess at II, r
pass tho corner where they want to
gel off, nnd then they fall lo cussln'
me." "T don't know," ho added re
flectively, 'which is the worst; to get
cussed for not having curs enough for
folks to got Into or to have so muny
that you can't nnswer all the foil
