Evidently "A Message from Mars"
is a play bound to create an Impres
sion. It Is a play In Itself distinctly
different from any other. There are
the beautiful scenes with masmlficnnt
oleptrical effects that characterize the
swift moving comedy. Besides, there

Tho story was told yesterday by
Coach Scott of an eminent actor, by
name' Porter, who played tho part of
i tho selfish business man. P.orter was
woalthy and did not need to work for
hla. livelihood. After a time Che play
seemed to make a change in the man
and' for each performance ho .bought
a carload of salt to bo used as snow In
tho second act, and then distributed to
the needy. He also turned over the
entiro compensation he received from
his work to philanthropic purposes.
It was only at a recent date that
"A Message from Mars" haB been
leased to stock companies. There has
been such a demand for manuscript

owners of tho copyright, have been
unable td supply all orders. The orig

a stock company In Brooklyn. This

COMPLISHED HIS FAME BY
Miss Ifayden of the fine arts depart
ment haB returned from Chicago,
where she went to Bee tho Sorolla ex
hibition. She was enthusiastic and do-
clares the 'Spaniard the greatest paint
er of hiB day.
MAn Insight Into the methods where
by Sorolla, the distinguished Spanish
painter, has achieved his signal suc
cess may not come amiss to a large
number of students who expect by a
year of resultory study to be prepared
for teaching," said Miss Hayden.
"For thirty years, beginning with
hiB entrance at an art school at the
age of soventeen, Sorolla has given his
entire time, strength and energy to
his work, and of this period he counts
tho first twenty years as merely pre
paratory. Even now with his reputa
tion firmly established, with highest
honors bestowed on him by nearly
every country of Europe, ho has no
thought of relaxing his tremendous In
dustry. It Is his habit during the long
summer months, the time when he
produces his wonderful sunlit can
vases, to work dally from nine to
twelve and again from 'one to four.
The physical strain of this, apart from
all mental effort can only be realized
by those who have struggled against
the. distracting conditions of out-of-door
painting. His mastery of tech
nlque is so complete it looks the easi
est thing In tho world to 'do a Sorolla,'
but let those thus deceived try it!
"To give one Instance of difficulties
to be overcome, I will quote his ex
perience In painting two of the most
marvellous pictures shown in tho re
cent exhibition in Chicago. Thoy rep

heads dotting the water, but close. to
the spectator, now seen, now disap

they Hseem actually to move before
one's eyes, and children standing
wide-eyed before these canvases invol
untarily make similar gestures.
"This Is how he did it:' In the first
place a rock out in the water was
leveled' to, glye sufficient foothold;
next holes were drilled in the rock
and two poles firmly Inserted to hold
the. canvas securely; then bx smaH
boys were engaged- to swim. In-relays

"It Is interesting to noto that So

Is work, work that ho omphasizoB, but
with the provision that it must bo dono

and successfully. In theso days of

modern methods. Natural ability Is
undoubtedly his, but it would hnvc

his untiring porsevorence nnd his tre

WEBER'S "DIE FEISCIIUTZ"
IS OPERA SELECTED BY THE UNI-
VERSITY CHORU8 FOR
Tho university chorus, under the di
