OMAHA GIRL MAKES A HIT
A splendidly filled house greeted
the gala artists' matinee of the
saengerfest at the Auditorium
yesterday afternoon. It w" an
audience of enthusiastic music
lovers who thundered their applause
as one after another of the world
famed artists rendered the master
pieces of the great composers with
splendid effect to the accompaniment
of the magnificent orchestra under
direction of Theodor Rudolph Reese.
None of the artists wi allowed to go
without (riving at least one encore num
ber. Nor was It the first time that the
splendid acoustlo qualities of the audi
torium for solo work demonstrated, a
pleasing- fact which several or the soloists
have commented upon.
"The Huguenots" was splendidly ren
dered y the orchestra as an overture
and then Miss Christine Miller, greatest
American concert contralto, sang Tschal

charm and effect
Althoase Make Debot.
Paul Aulthouse. the heroic tenor of
the Metropolitan Opera company, made
his saengerfest debut with an aria from
Mosart'a "The Magic Flute" and his

soprano of the Metropolitan Grand Opera
company, sang an aria from "Tanne

the consummate and finished artist.

the New York Symphony orchestra,

"Euryanthe" and adored as great a
success aa he has on his two previous
appearances before Omaha audiences.
Vote of Tremendous Volema.
Mlaa Jutla Clausson, the contralto of
the Philadelphia-Chicago Grand Opera
company, charmed the audience with
three selections from Wagner, "Der
Kngel " "Trauma" and "Schmersen '
and even these were not enough to satisfy
her delighted hearers, and she rendered
,n encore. The grace of her presence
and the ease with which she sings,
though her voice Is of tremendous vol

Other orchestra numbers on the pro

minutes, or until Ptehle, who had had
chain trouble, came up. Heyn was at
that time Juet pulling himself out of the
ditch unci he wus able to mount his
machine end proceed, so that 'he ' might
carry the messaga. the entire relay. '
Heyn says that he does not know Just
how long he remained In the ditch, as it
was dark when he was thrown and the
sun was shining when he came to. On
his return to Omaha he said that he was l
oonfldent that if he had not met with
the accident he would have made Co
lumbus In two and one-half hours, or half
an hour better than the schedule. He
had maoe sixty-five miles without mis
hap, going most of the distance at fifty
