HAL EHMHT AND
FARCE HERE 60IH EUHHE
A Program of Good Singing Given at the Parmele Theater Last
Evening An Amusing Farce," AH On Account of an Actor"
Was Given in Second Part of Entertainment
A good-Mcil crowd wa? present !
last evening- at the Pannelej
theater for the musical given un-;
tier the direction of Miss Jeanette
II. Holmes of Chicago, who is a
guest here of Mr. ami Mrs. (leorge
K. Dovey. The work of the sing
ers was uniformly good and the
farce, which was given at the
close, was very amusing.
Miss Holmes gave three num
bers during the evening and was
in two duets with Miss Catherine
Iovey. Miss Holmes' first solo
was "The Ovpsy Trail," by ial
laway. This was very beautifully
rendered and she received the first
encore given during: the evening-.
The entertainment was late in
getting' started, and as it was of
considerable length, the audienee
was sparing: in eneores in order
to keep the entertainment from
going to too late an hour. Miss
Holmes' second solo, an aria by
Secchi, was also well received, her
rich, mellow voice being- brought
out in this selection.
She, with Miss Dovey, gave two
duets, the tirst a nocturne by
Ienza; the second, a pretly com
position, "Pale Moon," by Cam
puma, both of which were popular
with the audience.
Miss l.atlienne Dovey Had a
very prominent, part in the pro
gram, appearaing twice with the
quartet, and giving two solos. Her
first selection, "Habanera," ' by
Bizet, was a difficult one, and
though hardly suited for her
voice, was well done. She showed
to splendid advantage in a com
position by Meyerbeer, which re
vealed her sweet voice, its ex
trusive range ami good control.
Miss F.mma falter gave a solo,
"Voices of the Woods." by Wat
son, revealing a sweet voice,
which, with more strength, will
be an excellent one.
Mrs. V. H. Wescott, ever a
popular singer here, appeared
twice, the first a Hr.wley solo, "My
First Love," which brought, out
the sweet and tender qualities of
her voice, and the second, "The
Love Sonsr." and "The Wav of a
Heart." by Milo O. Smith, two
pretty pieces sweetly rendered.
Mrs. Mae Morgan gave a solo,
"Flower Rain." by Schneider,
showing a g 1 voice ami good
Two, w"et selections by the
quartet made up (he rest of the,
program, the first precc, "Sweet
find Low," by T'.armabv. and the
second, "Slumber Song," by
Brahms. The ouarlel consisted
of Miss Hovev .Miss Minor, Miss
Gass and Miss Donnelly.-
The accompanists were Miss
Kiltie Cummins and Mr. V. H.

The Irili maid (Marie Hubert-
son) comes in with an arm full of!
presents for the actor, who seems
to have won the heart of all the
old maids and girls of the city.
She puts the presents in front of
a door of an empty room in the
hotel and puts a sign on the out
side with the actor's name on it.
The room opens into the hotel
parlor, and several young ladies
staying at the hotel slip into the
parlor, one slipping a note under
the door, another a photograph,
while the old maid contributes a
glass of jelly and a bottle of bit
ters. The telephone rings and a
woman by the name of Adelaide
(Catherine Dovey1" wants to talk
to the actor. The three ladies in '
the parlor give her a good lecture
for her impertinence, but it ends
shortly afterwards w ith Adelaide's I
appearance in the parlor with a J
demand that she see her husband.
In the meantime the maid has
put Uncle Hiram Green ami his
wife (Marie Robertson) in the
room where the sign was. Ade
laide knocks on the door and asks
to he let in. Hiram refuses to
let her in. and Adelaide, believing
that her husband is playing false
with her ami is flirting with his
numerous feminine admirers, de
mands admittance. Just then
Mrs. Hiram comes out and there
is a funny scene, in which there
is a controversy between the
women, bolh claiming the man in
Ihe room as their husband.
The scene ends happily when
Ihe maid comes and explains that
she played the trick at the request
of the actor, who did not want to
be bothered with his many admir
ers among the fair sex.
At the conclusion of I he scene,
with all the cast, standing in the
middle of the stage, the signal for
the curtain was given. It did not
appear, and there the cast stood
like so many statutes. The audi
ence quickly caught on and began
to laugh. The longer the delay
Ihe more Ihe laughter, and before
the curtain finally dropped the
audience was screaming with de
