Kvents move rapidly from this climax to
the final curtain, which generally comes
as a great surpiina to the auditors. Mr.
Kdeson has a apendld role In How Iandor

Indian under the stress of emotion. The
scenes of tha play are laid in bouth Iakota
and tha piece has been given a magnificent
mounting. Mr. Edeson's leading woman
this year will be Miss Kva Deunison.

In "The Fortune Hunter," which will be
seen at the Brur.dels theater for the week
beginning Sunday evcr.lns, January 1,
Wlnchell Smith has succeeded In transfcr
U to the iitate one of tho breeziest, most
whimsical and altogether charming stories
of American H'e evolved by any author of
tha ptesent day. The play met with In
stantaneous success In both New York
and Chicago, where two companies pro
r inted the piece In all-seaaou runs. The
company, which will be seen here la headed
by I''red NIblo, one of America's most
popular young actors. HIj Interpretation
of the title role, convrs perfectly the xpiilt
of the play and each subordinate role has .
been entrusted to players with national
reputations.
At' the liuyd the holiday week will be
celebrated by a great revival of "t'e'-er
ran," the beautiful fantasy 'by James M.
Ha trie. Miss 1-ang has played the piece
here before, and with such success that its
revival Is warranted. She is seen at her
very best in the part of the boy who would
nut grow up, leading his band ot boys who
were paientless In Never Never Land. It
is a story that appeals to every heart, and
Is piesented with much force. The Incidents
of the play from the time the Darting chil
dren leave home to follow Peter Pan until
they return again, aie those that bring
back to all the dear Illusions of youth, or
confirm tha young In their fixed belief In
the unreal. It Is a play for grownups and
for the children as welU Manager Wood
ward has prepared eluborately for the
mounting of the play, and will equip It
with a spleudld set of seer ery. as he did on
former occasions. It will be presented at
a matinee this afternoon, and daily at
matinee end evening performances through
out the week, except on Monday evening,
when the house will be given over to the
Cornell Clee and Mandolin clubs. Tha
prices will remain the same.
Something quite out of the ordinary In tha
way of ecientric end character dancing Is
promised tor William Rock and Maude Ful
ton, who will appear at the Orrheum for
the week starting this afternoon In their
original dance creations. This act em
braces comedy, tragedy and melodrama,
with every detail given In true artistic
manner. "The Dunce of the Devd 1 Is one
of the Hock and Fulton spectacular fea

This most momentoua amusement event
of the early year will be the appearance
of the New York Hippodrome company at
tip) Auditorium here, where It will play an
enaaKetrent, beginning January 8. The
undertaking Is the rnont colossal ever at
tempted In the hi; of a theatrical tour.
Fix hundred performers, half a hundred
horses, a tribe of Indians, a complete
Lilliputian circus and fifteen ears of scenic
del ices are some of the staggering figures.

To lis outcast and ostracised fur darlna
to make other compounds or confections
after a Riven form, was certainly a very
sevaro penalty ; and as frnnklmer.se and
myrrh were principal parts of those com
pounds, the law irlvfa a very hlh standing
among spices and things, to those two par.
tlcular Ingredients.
So frankincense and myrrh were valuable
Christmas presents. And. together with
told, they were offered by Wise Men ss
first tribute to the Spirit of Ol.rlmmas, to
the Christmas Spirit which permeated the
little town of Bethlehem.
And ever since that time wise men of all
ases have given their money, their gold, the
holy oil of their worship and the sweet
perfume of their good wishes. In honor of
the Bplrlt of Christmas.
To-day In hundreds and thousands of
churches, aubjeou like these will be dls-cussed:-"The
Mystery of the Incarnation:"
"The Human Birth of Divinity:" "Th
Arrival of the Messiah". Some will affirm.
and gome will deny, and aome will e,y
little on one aide or the other. Rome will
say that the Messiah haa not oome, others
will nay that the Meastah has come, and
othera will ay that there la no Messiah
at all.
But whatever the differences theological,
there will be a unity of aplrlt, and perhaps
unity of spirit la greater than unity of
belief; at leant It would seem to be mora
potent In its Influence.
And that seems to be the whole trend
and tend of Chrlstmaa. Unity of Spirit.
Men and women of the moet varying
shades of belief unite In celebratln tha
Chrlstmaa spirit. The moat earnest Trini
tarian, the moet positive Unitarian, the
most absolute Judaean. all agree on one
point, namely, the celebration of the Christ
mas Spirit. Whether the belief Is In the
Christ that Is. or In tha Christ that Is to
be, the relation towards Christmas Is tha
same In aplrlt.
And what la this spirit of Chrlstmaa? It
la the spirit of Olvlng. Instead of getting.

Chrtatmaa It Is entirely different: now wa
are planning how we can give best, and we
spend much anxious oare over the prob
lem of how and what to give.
Sptaking of gifts, two Itams appeared In
tha newspapers last week which ware vary
suggestive, and which may point a
Christmas lesson.
The first item was as follows: "John D.
Rockefeller has completed the task ha
I for himself In the founding of tha Univer
sity ot Chloago. Today public announce
ment was made of a 'single and final' gift
of IIO.OOO.OOO, which Includes all the contri
butions Mr. Rockefeller had planned. This
sum, to be paid In ten annual Installments,
befrlnninar January 1. will make, approxi
mately, 35.000,000 he has donated to the
university." (
The second Item Is this: "IV.ncoln, Deo.
20.-(bpeolal Telegram.)-Mrs. L. C. Keck,
the wife of a prominent business man of
this city, owes her life to the heroism of
; John doodnough, a university student,
, whose home Is In Chadron. Mrs. Keck was
suffer.ng from an acute attack of blood
suggested and scenkally handled by Arthur
Voegtlln, the famous scenic artist of tha
big show place, and R. H. Burnside, gen
era) stsge director, supplied the dialogue
and lyrics. Manuel Klein, director of tho
Hippodrome orchestra, composed the In
cidental music. The piece recites tha
thrilling attempt of a young oriental ad
venturer to smuggle Into Jspan an Amer
ican submarine, the plans for which have
been stolen, but In the end are happily re
gained. The audience Is transported In
vision from tha Occident to the orient. A
wonderful, view uf a departing ocean gray
lioond Is seen; also the l'lumlnated harbor
of New York, a fleet ot American battle
ships, a street in Toklo and the garden of
the mikado's palace, all of which will sur
pass the wildest flights of the most ex
travagant Imagination. "The Hallet of
Jewels" Is promised as the most dasxllngly
beautiful terpsiehorean divert isetnent aver
planned and executed. It Is tha concep
tion of M. Vlncenso Romeo, master of tha
ballet at the Hippodrome. Every gem
known to science Is typified and no grander
treat for tha eye was ever conceived,

Jtiat huwjt will bo diatrlbuted, and Just
how It will go about the accomplishment

It Is a suggcatlon of tangible reallcatlon
of tho old, old F.nKlish message "(llory
to Gud In the Highest, and on earth Peace,
Qood-wlH to men".
With Mr. ivockc-tellor and Mr. CarneRle
offering gold; and young Uoodnough, the
student, offering fmnklnoense and myrrh,
and his own life-blood, tha signs of the
tlmne are not discouraging, as regards the
Spirit of Christmas. J-r the Spirit of
Chrlstmaa lives always, not only around
the month of December, but all through
tho year. At the Christmas season It shows
Itself more materially, and It manifesta
tion Is the Epiphany.
Today we have the holly and the mistle
toe. The green of the bolly-leaf Indicates
the Immortality of the Christmas Mplrlt.
The red of the holly-berry Indicates th
love whloh that spirit pours forth from
the hearts of men; the white berry of tho
mistletoe suggests tha peace which the
Spirit of Chrlstmaa sheds abroad.
They are priceless gams, tha Kmei-ald,
tha Ruby and tha Pearl. And we find them
all In the emblems of Christmas. The Rmer
ald. of the Holly LaX; tha Ruby, of tli
Holly-Berry; and the Pearl of the Bud of
the Mistletoe. The Pearl of Peace. The
Ruby of Love. The Emerald of Immor
tality. Immortality, Lovr, and Peace. These are
the priceless gems of the Chrlstmaa season.
These sre the great gifts. And the Spirit
of Christmas will never die.

More than one critic In commenting re
gretfully on Mine. Seinbrlch'e contemplated
retirement from professional life has de
clared that the art of pure singing Is dying
out: that with the departure of the little
prima donna for her well-earned rest there
will be left no great exponent of the
"bel canto'1 school. Mine. Hembrleli her
self, in speaking of the rhsiiKca that have
come about In singing methods, loin said:
"The modern operas aim first of all tu
be .sensational, while the modern com
posers bother little about the voice. They
rely upon the dramatic situation, upon
artistic personalities, upon crashing orcheH
trsl effects. Singing pure and simple Is
losing vogue, and a pity It Is.
"When 1 was a girl, while we were
taught to act, while persuuulity was al
ways a valuable asset, the great art we
were forced to cultivate was singing, sink
ing, singing; first, last and all the time.
There were great singers all about us.
There were glorious traditions behind uh.
There were teachers who knew what was
necessary for us to do to achieve good
slrglng."
