the foremost play of the day
In five different countries
while shaped after the model of the an
cient morality plays, Is modern In con
ception and scenes. Every character Is
symbolical of virtues, vices or conditions.
While It was the original Idea of the au
'thor, Walter Browne, to present an al
legory after the form of the ancient
'morality, "Kveryman." he later modified
the scheme to admit of the entertainment
'which must accompany and be a part of
ja successful production. Though It
abounds In scenes which are really the
(refinement of the musical comedy of the
day, the author never departs from the
'idea of promulgating a moral lesson. In
his words his play was dedicated aa fol
lows) "To every woman who nowadays
listens to flattery, goes In quest of love,
land openly lays siege to the hearts of
itnen, this play may prove a timely warn
ling." The following are excerpts from scenes
of the play:

woman and guests hammer on the

"The Wizard of the Jungle." 1,000 feet
of thrill never before exhibited in this:
territory. It is primarily a vehicle for

balance of the opening day's program
will be made up ot eclentlflo or travel

er and for the south, Impulsively, per
suasively, eloquently, timlth discoursed
with more restraint of those beauties of
thought and feelintt typical of New Eng
land, Together they accomplished a
rather complete expression ot American
character. The other American works
produced In these programs supplied with
undue emphasis the characteristic ele
ment lacking In these two serious com
positions namely l Our love of gayety.
It was most brilliantly represented In
Uadleys overture "In Bohemia."
At the close of the Metropolitan opera,
season In New Tork City there, had been
recorded 152 crrenlmrs and afternoon of
opera. One opera agreed upon by all
critics as a novelty of more than aver
age merit was tho Russian opera, "Do
ris Qodounov," which was sung in Italian,
and which created quite a sensation.
This opera presents "a bass hero, a con
tralto prima donna, present only In one
scene; a tenor villain and a chorus thun

tional folk themes the underlying emo
tions of a people ell of which are ele
ments In an art work of tremendous

'William J. Hem&rson In a recent
article speaks of the attitude of many
foreign musicians, successful in America,
who go home and tell every one that the
Yankee pig I still a Yankee pig, that
we know nothing about art In any of Its
manifestations; that there Is no musical
atmosphere; that we are a land of money
grubbers; In short, that this Is the bot
tomless pit of hopelosenes. In the next
breath, this same artist will toll of the
triumphs that he has gained In the land

of the Yankee pig, thus proving that he
alone was tho bright particular exception
able to Ulumlno the dull mind ot tun
aforesaid plgt. Incidentally, Mr. Hcndor
son points out that the 2C per cent of
Americans that ovorrun Kuropn every
summer who are Interested In muslo are
to bo found frequenting tho concqrt halls,
of Europe and they coma homo with the
knowledge that the best orchestra In
the world. Is to be found In this country,
and consequently the best orchestral
concerts. Tho best soloists Europo can
offor come to our shores sooner or later,
usually sooner. "What then has the
Yankee pig to learn as to the standards
of solo performance? Naturally, nothing.
The very people who eagerly desortbe
him as a 'pig' have brought tho highest
stundards of KtiroDe to his doors and
laid the pearls at his feet." Incidentally
the Metropolitan Opera house ranks as
the finest and best equipped opera house
In the world, In which the casts are not
surpassed anywhere In Europo, and only
rarely equalled. Another point brought
to notice' Is that the very works that
command attention In our principal .cities
are the some ones that are most popular
In Europe, whldh shows that our be
nighted audience have some way of ar
riving at the same artistic conclusions
that the more experienced publlo of Eu
rope do which proves that "even If pigs
are pigs they know when they are In
clover." Mr. Henderson also proves how
every musician In Kurope is eager for
an American tour, and wonders If this
great army of peripatetic artists have no
home, or if, In other words, they cannot
make a living in Europe. There are s6m
of them that are great enough and truly
artistlo enough to make us want them,
but .there are a hundred others thut we
do not want that want us. The article
closes with this valuable suggestion for
young aspirants In the world of muslo.

sldered by every student:
Of course onfe studies musical art be

Night and day he Is Irresistibly Impelled
by a powerful desire to sing out his soul.
Cynics will Intimate that sometimes excel
lent bricklayers and capable carpenters
dream that they can evade the call ot
nature to spread mortar or saw wood
and acquire more lucre by singing or
strumming upon an Instrument and that
in the end something which Is neither
carpenter nor pianist, neither bricklayer
nor singer, Is brought before the public
and the publlo manifests a profound In
difference to it
Therefore, brethren, search yo well
your souls. If yo bo bricklayers seek not
to be ot the number of those who play
upon the harp and tho organ. If ye be
carpenters, sing nothing and saw wood.
For of such Is tho kingdom of peace.
No one should go Into the study ot

sional career unless convinced that his
talents are something above the common
level. Mediocrity Is the curse which lie
heavy upon Surope. Kvtry season we are
asked to listen to performers and singers

accorded good positions In their native
