A Hiiiall hut very nppicolntlvo mull
unco listened to a (harming concert
program at tho Lansing Monday even
ing, given by tho well known Whitney
Mookrltlgu company. There wore ton
numbers on tho evening's bill and Imi
fnro the last ono was finished, nearly
as many onohoros wore responded to.
Tho first to appear wore Miss draco
Aliny and Mr. Flotehor Wyatt, who
rendered Meyer Hnlmund's "Musical
Dialogue" much to tho pleasure of all
present. Their voices blond nicely
and tho harmony was perfect. Mr.
WlntornlU rendered a illlllciilt, yot
sweet and charming violin solo that
thoroughly caught tho house. Ho has
a graceful attitude, does his work with
delightful oaHo and thoroughly con
vinced his auditors of tho fact that ho
Is a thorough artist. Ho was compelled
to answer an enohoro. Of Oounod's
"Jewel Song," from Faust, which was
wing by Miss Marina Posta, it may ho
said that she Is a capable artist, hut on
this occassloii her work was not as well
received us was that of her compan
ions on tho program. She has a good
voleo hut her attitude on tho stage is
not easy, and her manner seems to be
somewhat strained, which always has
a telling olTect upon tho success other
wise, of a vocalist. Hut tho event of
tho evening was the appearance of that
popular tenor, Mr. Whitney Mockrldgo.
Ills rich, 'beautiful voice was never
sweeter, nor was ho over heard to let
ter advantage. Ho seemed at his best
and when "Murmuring Zephyrs," by
Jensen had Ikioii finished tho burst of
appreciation from tho audience demon
strated only too clearly tho apprecia
tion of every auditor hi tho house.
Euchores wore sung with llko result.
As a tenor Mr. Mockrldgo has fow
equals, and the only regret that can bo
ottered is that a full house did not hear
him. Ono of tho prettiest numbers of
tho evening was Miss Grace Almy's
"When I was a Child of Three." It
was gracefully sung, with good ex
pression and brought down tho house,
and an enohoro was the result. The
entire program was excellently carried
out and the concert was undoubtedly
one of tho nut enjoyable over listened
to In Nebraska. Manager Perslugor
may well lw credited with having a
most elegant aggregation of talent in
his company and they certainly deservo
united praise for their work. Lincoln,
howovor, is a poor music town, which
has of t .times been demonstrated, and
tho small audience that was present in
no mannor reflects upon tho merits of
Madollno Morll, tho Italian notross,
played a two nights' engagement at
tho Lansing this week, appearing both
nights to poor business. The madame
Is not well enough known to draw largo
houses and her success throughout this
country, which is advertised as her
first American tour, will doubtless lo
hor last. That sho Is a very fair artist
wo will not deny, but when sho or her
manngor claims oxtravngant ability
for her, then tho lino must bo drawn.
Sho has tho appearance more of a
Spanianl than an Italian and her acting
will never set tho world on tiro unless
sho improves much hereafter. Hor
support wiw very poor In somo parts
and only fair at best. Camlllo was to
havo boon put on tho first night but
owing to tllnoss of ono of tho ladies
Frou Frou, tho second night's bill, was
staged both nights. The business done
hero was fully in accord with what tho
Jolly, gonial, jovlnl Joo Murphy made
his bow to a Lincoln audience again
last night after an absonco of several
years. Korry Gow was tho bill and It
received amplo nnd pleasing attention
from a most excellent company of
artists. Mr. Murphy's olovor dlaloct Is
refreshing, pure and simple, while his
songs are such us to glvo cheer to the
most melancholy. In fact so rauoh was
his voice appreciated last night that
duplicate numbers woro found ncces
sary to satisfy tho audienco. Tonight
.Mr. Murphy will bo soon In his most
successful play, "Shnun Rhuo," and If
you haven't your seats secured yot, It's

show the regard in which Clara Morris
Is hold in Now York: "Mosmorism
and hypnotism are strong words, but
perhaps tho best to use in speaking of
her power," Brooklyn Eagle. "The
Fourteenth Street theatre was crowded
with the admirers of this remarkable
actress, and f.-oin tho beginning to the
end of tho play, her Impersonation was
watched with breathless Interest. Hor
hiarvolous powers aro revealed In their
I'omplotoness." Hun. "In superb
health, sho assayed tho rolo last night,
and because of Its emotional require
ments, carried tho audience along with
hor iiM)n tho surface of hor passion."
Herald. "Clara Morris gave convinc
ing proof last night that sho still pos
sesses that subtle force which makes
her unappronchablo and matchless In
tho rank of American actresses. Hor
art has won her a now triumph."

This Is a novel and Interesting enter
tainment that is as thoroughly in
structing as It Is respectable and pleas
ing and caters to till classes of tastes
that delight In clean refreshing amuse
ments. It is said of Prof. Burton that
his powor of training ovor what Is sup
posed by somo to bo tho dumb brute, is
marvelous. His troupe of trained
ponies and dogs comprise n collection
wluwo value cannot bo estimated in
dollars and cents. Thoro aro trick
dogs and trick ponies that act like hu
mans and the drilling together with
other tnauueouvers Is such as to make
each act seem almost incredible.
Prices for this engagement will be 15,
25, 35 and 50 cent and seat will go on
