The presentation of Classic plays by
Mr. Warren Conlan at the Park Thea
tre, Thursday. Friday and Saturday
nights, and Saturday Matinee, should
lie looked upon as an event of more
than extraordinary importance
This popular and talented star sup
jiorted by his own excellent company,
will produce four famous plays, which
are looked upon as the very best efforts
of their respective authors and are
without doubt the greatest plays of the
age. Mr. Conlan is indorsed by the
Press throughout the country, and as
an interpreter of Shakespearean char
acters, he is second to no actor now 011
the American stage. His support in
eludes such well known artists as Miss
Margaret Ferry. Miss Lillian Rhodes.
Miss Louise Meredith. Stanley King.
Augustine Duncan. Everett King. Pick
ering Brown. Thomas Lewis. Louis
Harbach. and many others of equal
prominence. The costumes are of the
most elaborate description, costing over
Thursday evening Sheridan Knowle's
famous tragedy of "Virginius" is to be
produced, Friday uight "Othello" Sat
urday matinee "Merchant of Venice .
and Saturday night the farewell per
formance will be Shakespeare's master
piece "Hamlet ". An opportunity of
seeing these classic plays presented by
a company of such rare excellence, at
popular prices of 10, 20, 30, and 50 cents
is heretofore unheard of. and that it
will attract general attention from onr
play-going citizens cannot be doubted.
The most thorough, renditions are prom
ised. and we trust a crowded house
may greet the company at each per
formance. The advance sale of reser
ved seats has commenced at Heinemans
where ladies tickets for the opening
night may be procured. By all means
go and see these great plays.
The concerts given by the club this
season have given perfect satisfaction
everywhere and they are meeting with
crowded houses in all the cities they
visit. Since last year they have added
to their club several new members in
cluding Valentine Abt. of Pittsburg,
the famous mandolinist, Prof. Mc-
Dowell, tenor soloist, for four years
with Prinston Glee club, and Frank
Weigand, of this place, whose whistling
is attracting favorable commentation
everywhere the Club goes and it quite a
feature of the program The concert
will be given for the benefit of the
Alumni Association of the Public and
High Schools and as this is a worthy
cause, it should be well attended.

A Special Musical Gift to all Readers of
Our Paper.
The very latest musical composition 1
to enlist popular approval is "The -
Broad Street Conservatory March." 1
composed by a young Philadelphian,
Rholand H. Smith, a pupil of the pop
ular institution to whom his work is
dedicated. It is highly inspiring, sug
gestive of the iMipular marches written
by Sottsa. It has been played by all the
leading theatre orchestras, and concert ,
bands in the (Quaker City, and at the •
sea side and mountain resorts. The (
piano part of this excellent march has ,
just been issued, and through a special ,
arrangement with the author we are en- (
abled to present a copy free to every
reader of this paper who
will send name and address, en- ,
closing this notice and 6 cents in i
stamps to cover mailing and postage. ]
to The Broad Street Conservatory of
Music, 1331 South Broad Street Phila- '
delphia. The retail price of the March \
is 40 cents and this is an offer that i
should be appreciated by our music il i
friends. ,
