and callers at Tjljs Collftlferi office Iko
la a groat rustier? clover flnanolor and
a most agreeable gontlomnn than whom
no bottor treasurer could havo boon bo
looted. Ah for Will Lykons, ho's thor
oughly onto tho business, knows ovory
manager In Amorlca, and what ho don't
know about booking and how to got tho
oroam of tho attractions wo d not do
anyono olso much good. Tho now
Tootlo will open Soptombcr first and
has already an excellent menu to offer.
Hopkins' Trans-oeoanlo's ho t o
boards at tho Lansing Thursday overl
ing and played to a largo and appreci
ative audlonco. As a meritorious high
class vaudovlllo porformanco tho at
traction was a big success and tho
sovoral artists woro liberally applaud
ed. Evory feature of tho prograraino
was well received and demands for
repetitions prolonged tho show to a
lato hour. Tho Dixon brothors, olovor
musical clowns; Mens. Nlzarras and
Mllo. Thorn, skillful French gymnasts;
James and Lucy Allison, sprightly
Englsh dancors and singers; Jano Mel
ville and Evil Stetson, original vocal
ists and dlaloct artists, all mado hits
and contributed somo taking novelties.
Trowoy, tho fantalslst humoristic, was
of course, an entertainment in himself.
Tho Roberta Zanfrotta Pantomime
troupo, in "Tho olopomont," brought
dono tho house. Tho other specialties
woro good. This attraction is on a par
with Mr. Hopkins' other enterprises
and compares favorably with his How
ard athuonum company. Ho travels
with tho oceunlcs and is making u big
card of tho company in all tho loading
theatres of tho country. It furnishes
a bright, clonn and clover porformanco
and deserves success.
Tho principal part of Herrmann's
entertainment, which was soon last
night at tho Lansing, consists of raro
and all-startling phenomena to which
his own original and colloctivo brain
has given existence HIb work seem
ingly sots at naught all natural laws.
It Is roplota with mysticism and thoso
occult deeds ordinarily ascribed to tho
redoubtable Princo of Darkness. Yet
ovorythlng is simply dono, and Horr
man frankly disclaims any superna
tural agoncics. Tho feats of legerde
main performed by Herrmann aro nono
of tho ordinary sleight of hand affairs
to which tho old lino of theatre-goers
aro accustomed. Herrmann stands
alono and supremo In thourtdiaboliquo
and no word description can do full
justico to tho mysteries of this romark
ablo porsonago. Ho charms you by a
graco of mannor, ho entrances by the
subtlo power which ho so greatly pos
sosses, and mystifies and bewilders you
by tho doftnoss and dexterity with
which ho executes his remarkable
feats. Two of Herrmann's most mys
terious tricks this year aro "Ta-ra-ra-boom-do-ay
dono to death" and tho
Chinese mystory "Yakoyo." Of tho
latter It canio said that it is a decided
novolty and ono knows about as much
how It was dono before, as ho does
aftorward. It Is a clever conceit and
Herrmann does it decidedly well. A
largo house witnessed the entertain
ment notwithstanding tho advanco in
prico of seats.
Burnes &. Summers havo put in five
nights quite profitably at Funko's this
week Including a largo Fontleroy matl
nco Wednesday. A vnrloty of plays
havo been given and all boomed
to please tho popular demand
for low priced stage amusement. Tho
Southern Rose, Ranch King, A Hun
dred Wives, Nobody's Child and Lady
Nell woro nil seon In tho order men
tioned, tho engagement closing last
night with tho latter. Little Edna
Remlng was a captivating featuro and
as a child artist does some very clover
work. Tho engagement was a vorj
fair success.

As will bo soon by our advertising
colums, Nordica, Schalca and a grand
array of operatic talent will be in Lin
coln, at tho Lansing Thursday evening,
and an Interview published last month
In tho Boston Journal, where tho tour
began, might bo of guneral Interest:
"My first appearance In public In con
cert was in Bumstoud Hall in 1870. It
was a pupil's concert and I sang the en
trance aria of Leonora in 'II Trovatoro.'
I sang in tho Christmas ovo (1870) por
formanco of 'Tho Messiah,' and I di
vided tho soprano solos with Mrs. J. W.
Woston. Tho othor singers were Ma
thildo Philllpps, William Winch and
Myron Whitney. In 1878 I went with
Gllmoro's band toKuropo, and sang, for
instanco, ut Paris in tho Trocadoro,
which was hardly finished. I think I
was tho Jlrst to sing thoro. My soloo
tlon was 'Vunno, Vnnno,' from 'Roberto,
II Dlavolo.' I did not go with tho band
to Gormany, for thoy played In tho opon
air and, of courso, I did not wish to
thus exposo mysolf. I studied in Paris
with San Giovanni, and it was ho that
fitted mo for opera. I then sang In
'Faust' at tho lino opera house In Ge
noa, and in Novara I played Alice in
'Roberto.' Tho widow of Wagner in
vited Madamo Nordica to take tho part
of EllzalHith In 'Tnnnhtiousor' at tho
liict Bay ruth fo tlval, Mm n'cr
wbh tlrod out and noodod rost. When
she was in Paris lust summer Madamo
Nordica saw much of Gounod, and
studied with him tho great aria from
tho 'Rolno do Saba.' "Gounod is grow
ing fooblo,"snid Madamo Nordica, "but
his enthusiasm for Mozart Is not
quenched, aud wo spent hours in sing
ing tho music of that master.
I go undor tho management of Mr.
Ellis, as far wost as San Francisco, "and
i snau go oacK w ijonuon- in nine lor
tho oporntio season. I havcbQon'askod
to sing in Mascngl's 'ItaBtzu' In Lon
don, and I am to create tho soprano part
In a now cantata by Dr. McKonzle; this
cantata will afterwards bo given at
Chicago, I bollovo. I am engaged for
tho next Worcostor festival and under
stand Gado's 'Psycho' will bo then
sung. In October I expect to sing In
Chicago in opora, as a member of tho
Abboy, SchooiTol and tho Gran com
pany." Madamo XMoruica woro an ex
quisite tea gown. It was ovidontly of
Parisian invention, and a fantasy of
Worth; a cream broeado of violet pat
tern. Tho throat of tho slngor was on-
circled tondorly by a collar of point
laco, which onco adorned a golden
haired Venetian of trngio inomory.
And now lot tho slngor speak, noarly in
hor own words. Tho music of tho volco
that lont a charm to tho recital of pro
saic detail must bo imaginod by tho
rcador. Seats go on salo Monday
morning and thoro will doubtless bo a
rush. Tho prices havo been plucod
from 12.00 down to f0 cents.

"A Busy Day," which comes to tho
Funko Monday evening, is a really funny
farco comedy, and not ono of those
dreary nightmares which masquerade
under tho much-nbusod designation. It
will bo Iterproted by Crandall & Zooll
nor's Comedians, headed by Harry
Crandall, known from ono end of tho
United States to tho othor for his ex
cellent and univuo dialect work as tho
German grocoryman in "Pock's Bad
Boy," will enact tho loading rolo, which
involves tho very class of impersona
tion in which ho has becomo famous.
Mr. Crandall, unlike most "dancing
and singing comedians," is really an
excellent satatorlal artist, and possesses
a line barltono voico of wondorful vol-
ume, surprising rosonanco and almost
indescribable sweetness. Thoro Is
really a plot, and an amusing ono, too,
in "A Busy Day," although, as a mat
ter of courso, tho specialties, whloh aro
tho necessary concomitants of evory
well-regulated farco-comedy, aro not
overlooked. In fact, thoy may bo said
to form the brightest features of this
"all-fenturo" aggregation. Tho entire
production is undor tho personal super
vision of Harry Crandall, and soats aro
now on salo at tho established prices of
tho Funko, 25, i0 und it) cents.
The Crunt of Society."
John Stetson's company of players
from tho Globo Thoatro, Boston, will
prosont for tho first time horo, "Tho
Crust of Society," an adaptation of
Dumas' celebrated comody, "Le Demi
Monde," which is ono of tho greatest
successes of tho year. Tho play deals
with a woman of remarkable nccumon,
of the keenest intellect. Sho aspires
to rise above tho position in society to
which she hns boon relegated, as it
woro, by hor villainous father, and, in
doing so, wins tho love of un honorable
ofllecr In tho army, whoso infatuation
for her induces him to givo up his
commission, and preparations are mado
to marry and fly to parts whoro thoy
aro unknown. Tho early friend of' tho
young onicer has orijoyod tho society
of Mrs. Eastlako Chapel, as tho hero
ino Is known, but sho has wearied of
hor old lover and sho has left him for
sovoral months, cultivating in tho
moan time tho acquaintance of Captain
Randall Noathcote. Oltvor St. Aubyn,
tho dln'ifdod lover, in ots Ms o'd
time friend. l o enptu'n, and t mak a
long story thort, ho gives him a full
hint that Mrs Eastlako Chapol is not
like Ctrsar's wifo. From this moment
thoro 1m plot and counter plot, onoh
side endeavoring to outwit tho othor.
Tho adventuress is ono of tho strongest
and most roinarknblo characters over
depleted by a dramatist. Sho is on
dowod with suporhuinan power and in
genuity and astounding complications
result." "Tho Crust of Society" will bo
seon by a full houso and tho Boat alo
will opon Monday morning.
