Last-Friday evening th pupils of the

showing their grades for the first semester
of the chKil year. Prof. Graham ex
pressed the belief that It would 1e a good
thing for the parents to g"t hold of these
grading cards and look them over. That
parents do not always look them over Is
shown by the surprise that some nf them
express on calling at the principal's office
to find that tli"lr sons or daughters have
made several failures along their nurse.
Sometimes these will make It doubtful if
the delinquents will be able to graduate. A

I nUoiibtvdiy the artistic value of "I'arsi

rested on the mysticism with which the
composer suirouudtd his central thought.
The theme of the opera-drama, ho shrouded
In maxes of music that challenge the

when they tfj not actually confuse, and
all In all, a labyrinthine composition of
strange harmonic and undeveloped tuought.
la simple enough when shredded nf the
wrappings of uncertainty and questioning
wonder with which It is so elaborately en
shrouded. This being true, the effort to
make It clear Is open to question: is the
beauty of the story of t'arslfai and his
quest for the Sacred Spear enhanced by
being made so plain that even the wayfarer
may understand It, or Is this effort to be
held up to condemnation as a sacrilegious
approach to the tldng sacred to the shrine
"Parsifal" unquestionably contains ele
ments of great dramatic value, and Just
as Wagner involved them in his wonderful
arrangement of the opera, so the author
of the play presented at the Boyd laat
night displays them in a setting of Kngllsh,
pure and limpid, at times flowing with a
musical rythm that Is charming and which
never descend to a low level. It Is oc
casionally sublime and always purposeful.
Reverently, carefully and with a tender
ness that Is sympathy Itself, he has told
again the story of Parsifal and Kundry,
Amfortas and Kllnschor. the Spear and
the Grail, and done It with that lllumlna.
tlon that Is possible In a drama and not
in an opera, it lacks essentially In power
to move. Just as the opera appeals not
to the masses but rather to the classes:
yet it Is as fully entitled to respectful
attention and deserves a more general
hearing than It Is likely to be accorded
In Omaha, If Inst night' experience may
be taken a a basis for Judgment.
Mr. Orattan plays Parsifal with Intel
ligent and power, and Is very convincing
In all lils scenes. Hia methods are simple
and hi effects certain. Mr. Dashlell'
Klinschor Is In many ways a most com
mendable characterization of a difficult
role. He reads his lines with rare taste,
and In the Incantation scene fairly thrill
the audiences with the apparent presence
of the supernatural. It has been a long
time alnce verse was more effectively
spoken on the stage at the Boyd than
last night by Mr. Dashiell. Mr. Cotton's
Amfortas Is good, and so Is Mr. MrCor
nilik as Gurneinanz. Miss Taylor is a
Kundry of great personal charm, and adds
to It capacity of acting that makes the
part one that actually commends. In the
garden scene her seductive methods are
most potent, and would scarcely have been
Withstood b one 1e rietermltw.it than
Parsifal. In the closing act, when she
I appears as the penitent, she Is equally
satisfying. The minor roles arc all In
The stage settings follow very cloaely
the Wngneiia'i traditions, having been
copied from ti e Bayreuth production, while
the lighting ofT- and spectacular ar
rangements are correct in every detail.
The management of the lights as permitted
by the action of the drama Is productive
of mure impressive results than are possi
ble to the operatic version. A single de-
' parture Is noted, that In the final act
Parsifal raises Kundry to his side, taking
her to share his earthly glory. Instead
! of allowing hr to perish in the moment
of her forgiveness.
As u whole the play and the performers
are commendable- in all regards and de
serves the public patronage. The piece
will lie at the Boyd till after Tuesday night.

Vandevllle at tho Crelahlon-Orphenm.
It Is surely to laugh at the Creighton
Orphrum this week. Four of the most
mirth-provoking turns offered this season
follow each other on the bill, and by the
time the curtain is down on the last one
the auditors have laughed themselves Into
such a state of exhaustion that they ac
tually welcome Agnes Mahr with her
clever dancing as a chance to rest. Mr.
and Mr. Kelcy are the first of this quar
tet, with a sketch that tells the story
of an actor and hi wife. He is out of
work, but ha the prospect of an en
gagement. It I the night berore Christ
mas. She pawn hi dia suit to buy a
turkey, and he pawn hi watch for the
same purpose. With two turkey in the
house, each is struck by a generous fit,
and each gives away one turkey. Other
complication fit in with the centra! theme
and the renult is a very funny skit that
I very cleverly acted. Lillian Mills and
KHdn Morris blacken their faces with
burnt cork and present a tnntrl fliat
I part that Is a novel conceit and Is done
so well as ta win for the girl an Insistent
recall. Harry leClalr, the Inimitable fe
male Impersonator, has a Cleopatra bur
lesque this seKson that exceeds In merit
and effect anything that he ha ever shown
before. It hardly needs be said that he Is
a hit. John Thornn is almost as clever as
he, and their new sketch Is brimming over
with occasion for laughter. It Is doubtful
If a better one lias ever been heard at
the Orpheum. In addition tn these funny
folks are some others who deserve atten
tion. Tearl and Diamond cp-n the bill
with a good dancing turn, and Agnes Mahr
rinse It with a similar exhibition. Just
enough difference exists between the two
acts to distinguish them, and both are
good. Flo Adler sings several new songs,
and with her boy vocalist scores the cus
tomary hit. The klnodrome pictures are

The popularity of this play doesn't seem
to wane a It grow older. Both perform
ances yesterday were witnessed by all the
theater would accommodate, and each
time the audience seemed to enjoy the
piece to the limit. Maldle DeLong ts a
dialect comedienne who has won her right
to mangle the Kngllsh language, and she
does it in a delicious way. Knute tea
helps her out with hi Impersonation of
Ole while she Is Hulda. The rest of the
Characters In the play are essential only to
the action, and don't cut much figure with
the people, who watch for Hulda and Ole.

for others, and add to the lesson the weight
of scientific authority as to their effect
upon the Individual, and It must command
attention; show that, while the former is
deleterious, the latter are good food and

Beer No riebelan Prink.
Beer, as the most largely used of the
three beverages In this country, naturally
claim the earliest consideration. Though
In common use almost the world over, and
by reason of Its small cost within reach of
the slenderest purse, beer is by no means
plebeian Its lineage is of the noblest; In
northern mythology. the brewer and his art
were important factors, the beer drinking
meetings of the Germanic tribes being really
sacrlflcl.il hanquets. It is worthy of note
that today several monkish orders In Eu
rope, and a certain monastery in Pennsyl
vania, brew famous beers, and Introduce
the season's brew with seml-religlous cere
monials. Wllda, the writer of an excellent
history of the ancient guilds, give numer
ous examples of this queer admixture of
heathen feast and Christian festival, among
them that of King Haakon, who ordained
that Yuletlde should be celebrated Christ
mas day, and that every freeman should
brew the third of a tun of good malt, and
continue the celebration as long as his beer
It speaks well for the virtue of beer that
Its excesive use by the Norsemen did not
cem to Impair their virility; there were
mighty drinkers In those days, and yet who
writes of the "vikings that roamed the
seas" without preilxing "hardy"? The fact
that the mighty , foaming flagon they
quaffed contained quite as much fod as
drink seems to have not only enabled them
to escape degeneracy, but to have actually
built up spirit, mind and stature.
Oriarla of Hopped Malt Beer.
The beverage we know as beer la not the
traditional winelike drink extracted from
barley; yet, though of more recent origin,
nothing is really known of the place and
date at which it first, appeared. Hopped
malt beer is by some attributed to Jan Pri
I rnus, a Burgundlan prince who flourished
about the middle of the thirteenth century.
while others ascribe It to one Jean Ban
Peur 1371-Hli. or Ganbiivius. It Is prob-
i able that a corruption of the latter name
will account for that pf the present king of
beer. OambrluUs. An entertaining writer

Improvements In Brewing;.
The growing popularity of beer has
brought forth Innumerable Improvements In
brewing and malting, and these hsv been
supplemented by the researches of Pas

Joergensen and other scientists; also by
exhaustive investigations into, and works
on. fermentation, yeast culture, bacteri
ology, and. at last, artificial refrigeration.
The new method, though they have not
reached perfection, have made of the

How Beer la Maae.
Tt may be remarked of beer that there Is
more misinformation concerning Its manu
facture and constituents disseminated by
ignorance than in the case of coffee even
which is taying a good deal. Perhaps a de
scription of these will dissipate this ignor
ance and the unjust prejudice it engender.
The Ingredients used are sterilized and
j nllered soft water, crushed malt and 3 per
oent of rloe, or grits, and hops ther I no
substitute for hops. The crushed malt I
placed In the "mash tub" upon a perforated
copper ple.le, placed soino two Inches above
the real bottom. Then, the rice, or grit,
which has been bolsd (partly under pres
sure) to disrupt It cell which dissolve an
encyn, called dlu: ise, that with heat and
moisture turns starch Into sugar 1 added
to the malt. After being thoroughly mixed
by tnvchanirally operated mashing rakes,
the "wort." as the Infusion I termed at this
stage, which ha strained through the per
foration, is drained off and entered into
the brew kettle proper, the solid being left
on the copper plate of the mash tun to be
eventually old for cattle feed.
In the brew kettle the hops, in the pro
portion of one pound to a barrel, are added,
and the infusion boiled two hours, after
which the latter gov to the "hop hack,"
where the hops are strained out; it Is then
carried up into shallow cooling vats on the
roof, under shelter, to take oxygen and
chemically fix It for the nourishment of the
yeast to be added later, after which tt la
! allowed to run nown over a system ot
i partly refrigerated pipes which brings it
down to a temperature of 46 degree Fahr
enheit and where It takes up, mechanically,
more oxygen; it then goes to the ferment
ing tanks where the yeast, one pound to
the barrel. Is introduced. As the yeast, be
sides causing fermentation, also checks
bacteria, the brewer' worst enemy. It is
added a soon as possible to the wort, in
the "starting tun," where, after twenty
four hours, it begins to woik. Then the
Impurities settle. The yeast uses up the
sugar, or carbohydrates. In beer, it splits
this sugar up into carbonic acid gas and
alcohol In about equal proportions the gas
quickly dissipates, the alcohol being re
tained. After twenty-four hours It Is
pumped from the starting tun into ferment
ing tuns, where the temperature run from
46 to 63 degree Fahrenheit. In five or six
days the yeast quadruples Itself; it then
goes to the bottom, and th temperature
falls to that of the room, about 38 degrees
Fahrenheit, and 1 further lowered by brine
colls. The beer now has alcohol, dextrine
and a little carbonic acid gas. From her

Ir. W. H. Wiley, ,-hief of the hureatt of
Chemistry of the t'nited States Depart
ment of Agriculture, agrees with Pasteur
that beer Is a "vrrltabl food product.
He dwells with particularity on the fsct
that the small quantity nf alcohol con
tained therein must he regarded a a food
ingredl' ut, saying;
"It ha been clearly demonstrated lhat,
when given in moderate quantities, thc
whole of the alcohol injected into the
stomach Is converted into heat during the
I proce of digestion. ssslnOitlon and ex-
cretlon." An authority, however, has
pointed out that the phrase "beer ta liquid
bread" does not accord sufficient value to
the potent fact that beer contains its con
stituent in a mnch more available form
than doe bread, and he suggests that to
do Justice to this peculiarity the phrase
should read: "Beer I predlgested bread."
He supports his theory with thla argument:
" 'Beer Is predjgested bread.' This fact
bwcomes all the more apparent when we
consider the subject from a physiological
standpoint. In order to b assimilable
carbohydrate in food must be dissolved,
and It has been shown that only a small
portion of raw starch and, for that mat
ter', gelatinised starch also is dissolved by
the ptyalln of the saliva, while the pepsin
of the gastric Juice is fitted chiefly to dis
solve albuminous matter and make them
absorbable. The digestion or dissolution
of starch matter Is, therefore, left almost
entirely to the pone reutic fluid which is
secreted in the duodenum, a comparatively
small part of the digestive system." New
