A Delightful Programme Very Au-
An nudlenco , representative in character ,
filled every available seat last evening nt the
Grand , nnd pave substantial encouragement
to the Appollocltib , now in Its fourth season.
Tor several years It has been a struggle for
existence with the Appollos , bnt now 11 fo has
been Infused into tbo organization and n
half dozen more concerts like the ono
of last orcnlnc wilt place iho cause ot music
upon n very high pi me In this , the metropolis
of the northwest. Whllo tboro wcro many
Imperfections In the rendition of the pro-
grainmo , noticeable to professional nnd hy-
innn alike , still no in are ambitious effort has
been given In Omaha.
The nudlonce , nlthough critical , was very
frl'-ndly , and the numbers received enthus
iastic recognition as the beauties of the
compositions were brought out. Throughout ,
nn Intelligent conception of the requirements
was pleasantly noticeable , although very
often the participants failed to giro forth
what they undoubtedly felt. The stage , In
order to accommodate the combined Indies'
auxiliary , the Apollo club nnd nn orches
tra of twenty pieces , was built out
over the orchestra pit , nnd with
hnlf n do/rn tiers of seats , tbo highest
almost touching the top of the fiat , with gas
Jots prettily arranged around the Inunlor ,
picsi-ntlngnn appearance much resembling
that of an eastern musical festival.
The Apollo" club opened the proarammo
with Cieorgo 1' . CODU'S ' 'If Doughty Deed , "
nn old tlmo iniilo chorus , in which the basses
showed to oxcoptlonil advantage , the tenors
displaying a nervousness which marred in n
slight dejrrea its otherwise perfect rendition.
Mr. Whitney Motkrldce , nn artist in every
scnsn of that much abused term , the possessor
ser of. nn exceedingly sweet nnd dramatic
tenor volco , mintf "Love's Borrow" by
Shelley In a delightful manner and to the encore -
core which was domandol ho gnvo "fho
Pioposal , " a dainty composttioii by Hrcckott.
Mr. Mockridgo in his technique and tbo
qnnlltv of his \oico recalls the eastern tenor ,
Air. Whitney , and witnout a saving clause
ho is the host oratorio and concert singer the
Mrs. J. W. Cotton followed by the rendition
of Uosslul's "Una Vooa Poca Fa' , " a com
position requiring a volco particularly de
veloped la the upper register. The singer
was in good form and grasping tlio dramatic
possibilities of the aria mndo a pioiiounced
impression upon the audience , executing the
staccato movements with faultless accuracy.
As an cncoro she sang "Tho Vow" byMe > cr-
Ilrlniund , n touching little ballad.
Mr. B. B. Young , tbo former director of
the Apollo club , and its organizer. rocei\ad
an ovation when ho stopped upon the stage ,
nnd It was a minute before ho was allowed to
give "Lo Norn do , Maile , " by Gounod.
Although unexpectedly being called upon to
sing a solo , ho gave thd selection In excellent
stjlo , emphasizing his former triumphs upon
the same rostrum.
'Tho ' Urido of Dunkorron , " a romantic tale
of the sea , very suggestive at times of
by Henry Smart , n cantata
lasting about forty minutes , closed the pro-
Tno work is very difficult , and it is sur
prising li < nv well it was given , taking Into
consideration that the chorus aud orchestra.
have had but four ichcarsals.
Mr. Torrens , who Is succeeding in bringing
the Apollo club into well deserved promi
nence , conducted the cint.Ua and deserves
congratulations for Its successful rendition.
Hut there were many notlceablo shortcom
ings , and ones that must not be lightly
The orchestra plived wretchedly and at no
time during the entire purformnnco did the
conductor have them in hind. At the end of
each bar Mr. Torrens scorned to grow moro
fearful as to the rosalt of the succeeding bar ,
nnd this hositatson he could not help butcom-
intmicato to principals and chorus.
Then in his anxiety to pull the bind into
form ho persisted in usii'Rhis foot as an ad
junct to his baton , the nolso made by this
member Jarring very unpleasantly upon
everybody in the houso.
The orchestia displayed the same forte
throughout the entire composition , losing a
hundred opportunities for strong climaxes.
Mr. Mockridgo clearly carried oil the hon
ors of the performance by his soulful singing ,
his voice being particularly suited for the ro
mantic role entrusted to him.
Mrs. Cotton , whllo always conscientious ,
soouicd at timog Just a bit weak , especially In
hcrUuuts with JMr. Mockridgo , but she re
deemed herself by the artistic manner Inv
\v hlch she sane ono of the beautiful gems of
the Cantata , "Our Homo Shall Bo on This
Bright Isle. " It was by long odds ono of the
best things heard this winter.

Miss Bayllss is a very promising artist.
Her voice is clear and tlcxlblo and wonder
fully Improved , so much so that with proper
training there is n big future before her
The ladles' nuxllliry cannot bo too highly
prilsed. Their work was very much superior
to that of the members of the Apollo club
nnd their rendition of "Hall to Thee , Child of
the Earth , " was particularly rich and
But taken all in all. It was a notable pro
duction , aud ono which marks a milestone lu
the musical llfu of the metropolis.

Imagined. A shurt tlmo ago Mr. Hoyt was
out on the 1'acllic coist. On his return ho
had a little experience ) which still lingers
humorously In his momoiy. At Silt Like
City the outgoing train was pretty well
tilled , but Mr. Hoyt managed to scuuio a
lower berth in the sleeper , whllo n country
man of the most pronouncedly rustic procliv
ities had the upper story of the com-
pirtment. According to the descrip
tion of his traveling companion
by the author of "A Texas
Steer , " ho was a " .Tav" from Jnytown. As
the night advanced Mr. Hey t decided to hive
his berth inado up nnd retire. Ho communi
cated his desire to the countrinnn who had
tbo upper story In the same compartment nnd.
asked politely If ho would bo kind enough to

to make up his bed The countryman evi
dently wns not Inclined to retire , nnd RIVO
Mr. Hoyt to understand that hu had as much
right to OLccupy the scat ho was sitting in ns
Mr. Hoyt hud to his. The nuthor i union-
strain ! , the countryman became obstinate.
Mr. Hoyt argued : Mr. "Jay" looked at
him contemptuously , but wouldn't ' budge
an inch. And this state of
affairs continued for miles over the road , and
until thu countryman , foelliiu sntislled np-
pirently that ho had enough of the encounter ,
arosii nnd wont into the smoking npaitmcnt.
This wns Ho.U's chance. Ho called the
porter , and after Instructing him to make up

This inado Hojt finious. Ho bad experi

commenced to undress.Vhila doing so his
