Carrie Jacobs Bond at the V. W. C. A.
Mrs. Bond has been called the "feminine"
Jameb Whitcotub Riley, and well she de
serve this title. Like the great American
writer, Mrs. Bond Is a lover and student
of nature and thla temperament and sym
pathy Is expressed both ln her music and
In her verse.
The opportunities of hearing a composer
In interpretations of her own songs Is
rare. Mrs. Bond gives Interesting ex
planations about the characters of her
songs and stories, making them realistic
and Intimate. Mrs. Bond Is not a vocalist
In the same degree that she Is a composer
and pianist. She has Interpretative abil
ity and charm remarkable enough to make
her performance moving and artistic.
Those familiar . with Mrs. Bond's work
noticed a number of new compositions. Of
these the "Kitten Bongs" are still In man
uscript. There are four In thla group
"She Scratches." "The Kitten and the
Cream." "Kitten and Muff" and "Kitten
and the Lily."
Several encores were given and Included,
"I Love Y"ou, Truly" and "Sunshine." Mrs.
Bond's favorite verse is an optimistic one,
called "Make Believe." The composer Is
upending the week with Mrs. Myron
Learned, an Intimate friend, and la com
posing a song to be dedicated to Mrs.
The recital waa given under the direc
tion of Miss Blanche Sorenson and a large
audience filled the auditorium of the

"The Cow Paaraer" at the Kro.
"The Cowpuncher." a western drama,
with Harry C. Bannister In the leading
role of Tom Lawton, opened a three days'
engagement at tbe- Krug wltrf a matinee
yesterday. The story is the not unusual
one of tha' handsome city girl who comes
Into possession of a ranch, goes to live
on It, fails In love with the cowboy man
ager and marries him after a series of ad
ventures, which Include a kidnaping by the
cattle thieves. Dynamite Ann, whose horns
has been with Tom Lawton since her
father's death, Is married to Lawton's
brother after he has mustered the "nerve"
to propose. There Is In the bill sufficient
tragedy to satisfy thoae who wish an
abundance and enough good comedy to
prevent the audience from becoming de
pressed. Everything ends well. Catlos
Mendoza. the greaser, is killed before he
accomplishes murder, and Tom Lawton,
about to bang his brother fur a cattle
thief, discovers bis error In the nick of
Harry C. Bannister mikes a good cowboy
and does not over-act the role. Miss Lola
Lee as Geraldlne Graham, oh ner of the
ram h, plas the part naturally and with
effect. Fred I. Lewis and Crystal Vizard,
In the Juvenile parts, do all that ran be
expected of them. The western atmosphere
and the "business" is better than Is found
In the average play of the sort.

The Desirable Uoest.
The person who can talk entertainingly Is
the best type ot guest at social gatherings,
for she whe Shatters Incessantly Is almost
mora undesirable than one who la too
quiet for the latter gives opportunity for
other persons to express themselves, while
with the former to say even one word is
often a struggle.
The balance between these extremes is
the art of stimulating a temporary com
panion to conversation, and at no place Is
It more Important to adopt ths correct at
titude than at a dinner. Mors than one
man haa been obliged to talk so much
when sitting beside a quiet woman that he
has not eaten enough. Such conduct on
alderate, for a woman Is decldsdly Incon
siderate, or If shs Is not wiling to sdd her
quota to ths evening's entertainment she
should stay, at home.
At dinners and also at ofrmai luncheons
It Is a good idea to watch the plates of
neighbors, and If one person has been
talking so much as to have fallen behind
In the course It Is tactful to take conversa
tion Into one's own hands, giving the
other a chance to listen and at the same
time to eat.
It la not good form to monopolize the at
tention of one neighbor to such an extent
as to prevent him or her from talking with
the person on the other side. Often it Is
a temptation when on one side Is sn at
tractive person and on the other side one
who is dull, but politeness makes dividing
the attention necesvary.
If one person is kept constantly in con
versation by one neighbor at a dinner It
means that he or she on the other aide sits
much of the time with no one to talk to.
for the guest farther on Is certainly giv
ing some time to the person on his or her
morning promptly at 8 o'clockj
