Til concert! gives by Innes and hi
tnd on Monday were the only events In
local amusement circle during the week
worthy of more than the mere pasting
mention already given in these columns.
V'nfortunntely for Mr. Innei and those In
terested in the financial success of his tour
the enthusiasm usually so marked amongst
the musical people of this city was' some
what dormant, and the engagement opened
and closed to ridiculously small business,
la marked contrast to the small patronage
bestowed upon the Innea concerts,' Belss

, filled the theater nightly during the latter
half of the week, while at the Orpheum
each of the ten performances of the week
were given before large audiences. Such
la publlo taate and, like the wind, one can
Beyer tell just when and how it la going
to change. One week melodrama appeals
to it successfully; the next. It must be
tragedy, romantic drama, music or variety,
and so on through an entire season It goes
changing with every new amusement fad
that comes out. About the only line of
amusement that seems to be permanently
etabllehed In the good graces of the theater-going
public Is the comic opera or
musical comedy. This the people aaera

naturally expect the management of the
local theater to book little else during a
For the week opening today two new
plays are offered. This will at least break
the monotony of repetition, even if little
la known locally of either the plays or com
panies that are to present them. Both
come well recommended, Inasmuch aa each
has enjoyed popularity In the" east for two
Seasons past. Rose Cogblan, who comes
the latter half of the week, will bring old
plays, although ones In which Omaha
people have never had an opportunity of
freeing her. Miss Cogblan has not been

Appeared at the old Boyd In 1890, when she
was seen In "As in a Looking Glass" and
The present season so far has seen the
production of fewer successful plays In New
York City than any in many years. One
cf Omaha's prominent business men and
regular theater-goers returned last week
after having spent several weeks In the
metropolis. Commenting upon the theatri
cal situation there he said. "There are but
three plays running In New Tork now that
can be called really great successes, and
less than a- halt dozen that are staying
cn their merits. During my stay there I
Visited all of the leading theaters and found
only four of them doing a complete busi
ness. Tbey were the Criterion, where Mrs.
Leslie Carter is appearing in David Bel
asco's new play 'Du Barry. The Oarrlck
With Charlee Hawtry. the well known Eng
lish actor, in 'A Message from Mars' and
the Republic, where Mrs. Patrick Campbell
Is appearing In repertoire. It is almost
Impossible to get seats at any of these
theaters unless one pays a speculator a
fabulous price for them. Naturally, when
X arrived I commenced to make Inquiries
as to what was the best play on the boards
and which I should see Brit, There seemed
to be very little difference of opinion among
the residents there everyone telling me
to see Mrs. Carter's 'Du Barry without
delay. I went to the box office bent on se
curing tickets for the evening perform
ance and you can Imagine my surprise
when -I was told that every seat In the
theater was sold six weeks ahead. ' I con
sulted a sidewalk speculator and was told
that be had a few choice seats for the mid
dle of the next week at $10 each. Almost
the same situation existed at both the Oar
rlck and the Republic, and I did not get
to see either of the big successes until
the second week of my stay.
"Such a production as 'Du Barry I bars
never witnessed in my twenty-odd years
of attendance upon placea of amusement,
and I do not believe .that such a splendid
one has ever been made before. And Mrs.
Carter's work In the title role is simply
beyond my description. Those who thought
her so good as 'Zata' should see her 'Du
- Barry.' Comparing her work In the two
parts would be almost like comparing that
of an amateur to a professional.
"It was my privilege to make the ao
Qualntance, through a friend of mine who
happens to be in the theatrical business,
of David Belasco while in the metropolis.

cess of his play and was quite talkative
about it. He said that It had cost him la

Is his Intention to remain at the Criterion
until May 1. Then Mrs. Carter will rest
until September, when she will opea la the
Victoria, Mr. Belasco having secured a
Ove-year lease on this theater, 'I aball not
take the play on the road for at least four
and possibly Ave years,' said he. 'It will
take a couple of seasons to get the money
I have Invested out of the play and then
there will be aome profits that la, if for
tune favors us and the dear publlo do not
tire of the play. I am confident, however,
that "Du Barry" will enjoy' the longest
run of any play that has ever been pro
duced in New Tork City.'
"One can gain something of aa Idea of
the eplendor of the production by the
statement that the furnishings alone In
the boudoir scene cost nearly $2,000 and
that the bedspreads are so heavy that It is
almost impossible for Mrs. Carter to lift
them. All of the furniture Is of the
Louis XIV pattern and of the most costly
woods. There are more than seventy-live
people In the guillotine scene, which is
one of the most reallatlo I have ever seen
on the stage.
'Mrs. Patrick Campbell, who Is -having
such splendid success at the Republic, Is,
I -think, Mrs. Carter's peer as an emotional
actress. 8he not only has the artistic
temperament, but is a beautiful woman and
knows how to wesr stunning gowns aa no
other actress on the stage does.
"Charles Hawtry has a splendid play In
A Message From Mara' and I doubt If this
country has his equal as an actor aside
from Mansfield. He could stay In New
York and play to crowded houses for at
least two years. If not longer, in this same
clav, ao it la doubtful If we in the west
will have an opportunity of seeing him for
'I saw 'The Toreador, the new comic
opera In which Francis Wilson naa me
leading part, and was much Impressed with
It. Christy McDonald and Joseph Coyne
are making the big hit of the play, and
Wilson is pushed somewhat In the back
ground, although New Yorkers say his part
of Tiger Is the best thing he has ever done
In New York. Coyne has a song in the
piece, entitled 'Everybody is Awfully
Good to Me, Don't You Know' that ia a
a greater hit than was Dixie's famous 'It's
English, Quite English, You Know.' We
won't get to see It here for another season
or ao anyway. At the casino Anna Heia
Is doing only a fair business with her new
musical comedy, 'The Little Duchess.' The
costumes worn by the women In this play
are the finest I have ever seen of their
kind outside ef a drawing room. Tbey are
all evening gowns and of the moat elab
orate style. Omaha will probably get a
look at Miss Held next season.
"At the Victoria Otis Skinner was mak
ing a splendid Impression with 'Franceses

early this season. He Is attracting large
crowds, although not unusually so. May
Irwin revived 'Widow Jones' while I was
there and It did not seem to catch on very
well. At Daly's 'Frocks and Frills' was
the offering. It Is a rather mediocre
thing and is not drawing well. Annie Rus

good play, yet Is not doing anything more

meet with an accident that would keep him
from meeting' his many American engage

reimburse Mr. Daniel Frohman to the extent
of $10,000. Arrangements for this risk were
completed soon after the arrival of Kubellk
in this country. Bearing in mind mlabaps
to other artists which have been the cause
of much worry and severe financial loss to
artists and managers, Mr. Frohman ap
plied for a policy la the British Lloyds.
Such a proposition was new to the agents

home office la London and received permis

' Miss Alice Fawcett, ecntraUo, vocal In
structor, 640 Ramgo building. Studio days
Mondays ana Thursday.
My text this morilng will be found In the
ninth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.
It Is this: "Now there wss at Jnppa a cer
tain disciple named Tabltha, which by In
terpretatlon Is called Dorcas; this woman
was full of good works and almsdeeds
which she did. And It came to pass in
those dsys that she was sick and died."
Ia a little upper room In a certain office
building In Omaha there lived a woman of
large sympathy, of Intense devotion to
friends, of real, active, spontaneous hu
manttarlanlsm. She was not a prominent
club woman; she was not Identified with
any office of any charitable society, nor
was she a uniformed sister of help or
She was a woman who "waa full of good
works." All around the little room wherein
her life work was done were to be found
pictures, books of the best wrltefs and of
the latest thought, and in one sacred
corner, to which the elect alone were al
lowed, there might have been found a plain
. On the same floor were studios of musi
cians, and many a cup of coffee has been
administered to the wearied ones by the
hand of the certain disciple named Tabltha,
or Dorcas, or, ss she was called In real
life. Sophie Sorenson.
Miss Sorenson, who had lived a life full
jf cares and worries, and those petty an
noyances which go to make up an exist
ence, had time to take flowers to any friend
who was sick. She had time to take books
to those whom she loved, and she had time
to take care of the students who came early
to the studios and found them locked. They
were Invited Into Miss Sorenson's little
room snd were kept entertained, as she
worked with dexterous fingers upon some
body's new gown. The friendship of this
noble woman, who loved mualo as she loved
righteousness that Is, practical righteous
ness endeared herself to the hearts of
those who from time to time occupied that
floor of the building on which her room was
situated for Instance, Slgmund Landsberg,
Frank Potter, Charles Hlgglns, C F. Steck
elberg, Oscar Garelssen, the present writer
and others. Never was there a good con
cert but that one seat was sure to be oc
cupied. Never was a plate passed at a
tree recital but there was a silver response,
and with all her love for humanity she had
none for herself. She had flowers for
friends, but not for her own table.
Last year I asked her to suggest someone
who would make the gowns for the Meth
odist choir at a reasonable price. I could
not ask- her to make them, because I knew
she was busy on several Important gowns
which would bring much more financial
emolument. Out of her love for that choir,
to which she was always a devoted listener,
although not a church member, she threw
aside her other work and made forty
gowns, every stitch being a stitch of love,
sewn In by her own hands, and every seam
a suggestion of the ties that bind.
"And It came to pass In those days that
she took sick and died." A quartet of lead
ing professionals sang at her funeral, one of
the most prominent pianists of the city left
his studio to play the accompaniments
therefor, and Rev. E. F. Trefs, who knew
her well, talked of her under the text,
"She hath done what she could."
Such is the story of one who found hap
piness and joy in service.
And of such jewels Is the King's crown
May she rest In peace!
The preceding story of a life has Im
pressed me greatly with the fact that we
musicians are so often liable to forget the
The motto of one of the world's most
prominent men, "Ich Dien" ("I serve")
should be emblazoned on the shield of every
true apostle of art. The artist has been
given a power for perceiving the beautiful.
He should show It to others.
We should not live altogether for our
selves, we should not remember only the
dates and hours of our engagements. There
Is not a day nor an hour when we may not
in aome way minister to the wants of those
around us. Concerts will not do it, recitals
will not do It, musicales will not db It.
Personal acts alone will accomplish the
results, will place us In the position of
those who serve.
' This woman did not wait for opportunity,
she made It, and she Is missed. She took
what was next at hand, instead of sighing
for a golden voice to vibrate through the
world, or a mighty genluevto compose great
music; no, she saw what was to be done
next door, and she did It. Will she not re
ceive the "Well done, good and faithful
servant?" I think she will.
Are we doing what we can in our own
slmpls way? Do we aerve, or do we exaot
service? Giving lessons at so much per
lesson is not service; do not even the
hucksters do the same? Is it not quid prr
quo? Wo make the best muslo when we
make a neighbor's heart to sing. I am
