THE 03LAIIA DAILY -JJEE: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1002.
Theater-goers were forced, last week, to
gratlfr their desires for amusement with
vaudeville. The only offering at the Boyd
worthy of not being Augustus Thomas'
splendid play of the west and western
people, and Inasmuch aa the piece was
seen her two season'! ago with the origi
nal cast, the same aa la now making the
play such a great success) In London, In
eluding Theodore Roberta, Wattle Earle,
Vincent Serrano and other equally aa well
known. It attracted little attention tare
from the few who did not aee It at that
time. The audiences were accordingly
rather small. At the Orpheum the bill, the
Orpheum road show, was easily tho best
that has been seen at this theater during
the season and each performance attracted
enough people to comfortably Oil tho
theater, while on Sunday and Friday nights,
the latter being military night, standing
room only was to be had. Undoubtedly the
iiost Interesting feature of the program,
least to Omaha people, waa the act of
ne Omaha Guards Catling aectlon, or c
they were billed, the Union Oatltng Guards.
Their reception nightly was enthusiastic,
to ea the least, and It was well deserved,
el nee the act la without question one of
the moet thrilling of any In vaudevl'lo
The eight young men who constitute the
Omaha Guards' Gatllng gun aquad, which
returned to the city last week for a brief
atay at the Orpheum, after having spent
' tlx months en tour, during which time
they have appeared at themajorlty of the
leading theater throughout the country,
feuve a vastly different Idea of the life of
a theatrical performer than they did be
fore they mad their debut here a season
ago. Their experience a related to dif
ferent friend here during their stay last
week are at wide and varied a all the
ramification of etagedom Itself and would
Oil a volume that would make decidedly
Interesting reading. In a conversation with
the writer Captain Arnout, speaking of the
trip and the vlewa of the men regarding
theatrical life, ald: "The boya have dis
covered that the life of an actor, usually
looked upon by young men outside of the
profession aa being a thing of beauty and
Joy forever, I In reality much more pleas
ant la anticipation than in realisation. One
experience much the same monotony a
la found In any business or profession, and
X think perhapa a little more. Of course the
traveling I not unpleasant, since there are
enough of us to keep each other company,
and where we play a week In large cities
there are almost always point of interest
enough for us to look up to make the time
past rapidly and pleasantly. When we firt
ttarted out It waa pretty much every fel
low for himself and to his own taste, but
we oon found that thl waa a rather
lonesome way to enjoy ourselves, as there
were no two who wanted to do the tame
thing or go to the same place, o w
finally decided to have one man look up
and make inqulriee about the different
polnte of interest and then all take them
In together. Thla it our present plan, and
wt And It much mart pleaaant than any
we have yet tried. During the teven dayt
of a week it I only necesary for u to
be In the theater about four hour all

take us ten minute to get Into our uni

about a half hour of each day to oureelves.

Frank James rushed Into the llme-llt

a trifle late from him. Had he commenced

ure to bear ot the organization of uch
musical club as you are working up la tht
outside town. It mean much for th fu
ture of muslo in tht community. At to
your questions, I would say that probably
th best results will be attained by omitting
the boy's voices. Unless they are very good
they will not be satisfactory. I have never
favored th blending of the volcea of boy
and women on one part But then lot ot
people do. Boy separately, or women sep
arately, in my Judgment, give the best re
suits. You will have to be your own Judge
as to the balance ot tone. It I a good Idea
to get your tenor first and then build
your other parts according to their (the
tenor') volume. There la no fixed rule aa
to balance ot part. - You might, for in
stance, get three contralto who would
overbalance a dozen of sopranos. A to the
name of musical selections, do you want
