here direct- from remarkable runs of
nine months in , New York, five
months in Boston, and ueven months

In ten brilliant scenes "Experience"
tells the story of Youth and the temp
tations he meets wAien he goes out to
make a name foa; himself in . the
world. The play opens, showing
Youth called away from his home and
his sweetheart, Love, by Ambition.
When Youth reaches the great city
he meets "Experience" on the street
Vacillation, who promises Youth that
he will be his constant and helpful
companion in his journey. Gay Pleas
ure is introduced to Youth and with
her subtle charms wins him from Am
bition to the primrose path. There,
heedless to the voice of Opportunity,
Youth meets and mingles with all
the temptations that inevitably sur
round the young. Youth wastes his
time and money with Intoxication,
Passion and other1 gay ladies and
gradually drifts lower and lower in
the world. He is at last saved from
Crime only by the miracle of a moth
The stage settings of "Experience"
are elaborate and spectacular. The
costumes are the very latest achieve
ments in sartorial art and the inci
dental music in the play is said by
the critic to be very delightful. The
variety of attractions "Experience"
presents appeals to every one, the
dramatic writers say, no matter

Possessing more than , ordinary
musical comedy excellence, the Win-
By HENRIETTA M. REES.
UMt TIME ago the writer
asked Mr. Kelly for infor
mation concerning the
Civic Music association of
Chicago, what they are
doing and how it was be
ing done, and about the many com
munity clubs it sponsors.
As a result he sent the third annual
report of the association, a program
book, and a brief bulletin, all of which
contained information which is highly
interesting. Ihe objects ot this so
ciety are to promote and encourage
the understanding, appreciation and
study of the art of music and the de
velopment of musical talent through
out the community, principally by
providing music entertainments and
instruction gratuitously, or at little
expense, in the small parks and play
grounds and other civic centers. y?
i ne memDersnip is maae up 01 con
tributing members who pay $50, or
more, and this list includes some of
the names of Chicago's most promi
nent citizens; sustaining members,
who pay $10 a year; regular members,
who pay $2 a year and who make up
the largest portion of the member
ship; and the neighborhood members
at 50 cents a year. These are mem
bers of the community clubs and their
dues make many of them practically
self-suDDortinK. Many special contri
butions are made by clubs and organi
zations. Co-operatmg with the as-
ksociation are the leading musical
clubs, the Chicago Association of
Commerce, the Chicago Women s
club, the Orchestra association, the
commissioners of the public parks
(the south Park commission appro
priating $800 in recognition ot the
work done in organizing music clubs),
the Department of Public Welfare,
the Board of Education .(which not
only gives free use of its buildings,
butxpermits an admission fee of 10
cents) and the music extension com
mittee o'f the City club.
The membership fees and contri
butions all go to make up the annual
budget, which carries the association
through each season. This money is
spent in salaries for a superintendent
and stenographer, musical directors,
teachers and accompanists for the
civic music clubs, all of whom are
Lpaid; in artists concerts, for music,
printing, etc. Ihe otticers ana di
rectors are from the best known
residents of Chicago and include
among others Mrs. George B. Car
penter, Mr. William H. Rehm, Angus
Hibbard, . Mrs. Fannie Bloomfield

John C. Schaffer and Mr. John Alien
According to the Chicago Post:
"Last winter the Civic Music associa
tion conducted 549 children's classes
in small parks and schools, twenty
eight children's classes, nine commu
nity signs' and three community con
certs oil ' the Municipal Pier, 307
choral rehearsals in small parks and
schools, 147 artist programs and
twenty-five local-talent programs In
small parks andchools," besides sixty-nine
Dalcroze lessons for children,
eighteen class violin lessons, a Christ
mas festival of carols, two spring fes
tivals by civic music clubs and a big
community concert at the Lane.Tech
nical High schools, besides other ac
tivities." Pretty good for one season,
From the superintendent's report
one learns that "too much cannot be
said on behalf of the musicians who
give their services for a nominal sum,
either for concert programs or for
conducting civic music clubs. In that
connection I should like to add that L
too much cannot be said for the Civic
Music association for paying the mu
sicians even the nominal sum. In
some phfees the musicians have been
expected to go in all sorts of weather
and pay their own way to get to out-
ter Garden extravaganza, "A World of
Pleasure," is anneunced for an en
gagement at the Boyd theater for
three nights, beginning November 16,
with matinee Saturday. This spec
tacular production has created phe
nomenal successes in New York, Chi
cago, Boston, Philadelphia and other
large cities in the east, and it comes
to this city not1 only with the un
qualified endorsement of theatergoers
and dramatic reviewers, but with the
same splendid cast, chorus and scenic
equipment that it had during its en
gagement in Chicago. The play was
hut re-rentlv re-costumed, as a feature
of its presentation has been a fashion
parade ot tne latest gowns.
For the week of November 5, the
Orpheum will present Mrs. Langtry
(Lady De Bathe as its stenar iea-
ture. A specially featured attraction
for the week of November 5, will be
Harry and Emma Sharrock, in Be
hind the Grand Stand," cast as no
mads of the county and state fairs
and give a baffling exhibition ot
their phsycic powers.
Rose Sydell!s famous "London
Belles," a century ahead of all com
peting organizations, is the attraction
at the popular Gayety this week. The
company this season carries' ifty peo
ple together with a complete scenic
and electrical equipment; the cos
tumes are gorgeous, producing to the
eye a constant dazzling effect. The
production is a two-act musical bur
lesque entitled "A Trip to Washing
ton," concoction of laughable situa
tions, intermingled with catchy mu
sical ensembles introduced by the
large chorus of handsome girls rich
ly gowned. Johnnie Weber and Bill
Campbell, comedians, keep the fun
moving at a warm speed, never let
ting it get cold. The rest of the cast
is Ward Coulfield, Franklin Sinclair,
Ed Wright, Harry Waltjed, Frances
Cornell, Grace Tremont, Kate Pull
man, Norine and Rose Sydell herself.
Today's matinee starts at 3 o clock.
The bill opening at the Empress to
day is headlined by an organization
of pretty and talented young girls, six
daughters of Dixie, in an artistic mu
sical novelty. On the same bill Swain's
pets are presented in Omaha for the
first time. Performing cats and rats
is the nature of the act. The old
time enejnies of animal life seem to
get along famously on the stage and
show the effect of the intelligent
training of their master. The boys
from Louisville, Bowman Bros., have
a singing act above the average and
Smith & McGarry present new steps
in excentric dancing in a very clever
of-the-way places to perform for
nothing. The fact that many of the
artists contribute their cheques to the
cause shows how the musicians them
selves appreciate the spirit of the club
and also their interest in its activi
ties." It was through the combined ef
forts of the Civic Music association
and the Music Extension committee
of the City club that the "popular"
concerts of the Chicago Symphony
orchestra have become a permanent
factor in Chicago's musical life. On
November 14 the fall festival of the
Civic Music association will take
place in Orchestra hall. The Chicago
Symphony orchestra, Frederick Stock
rnnductincr : Mme. Julia Claussen, as
sisting soloist, and the Civic Music
clubs will furnish the program. At
the close Mr. Kelly will conduct the
audience in some community sing
ing, such as he has been doing at the
Omaha is not so large as Chicago, it
is true, but we are large enough to
have a Civic Music association, a city
that can support a Tuesday Morning
Musical club of 600 members, a Drama
league of 700 and other clubs of like
dimensions. .With such a .club we
could do. upon a proportionate scale
much of the same jtind of work in the '
same kind ot way tnai ine v-ivic
Music association of Chicago does.
True, also, we have not a municipal
pier, such as the city of Chicago gave
the Civic Music association the use of,
but we have a Municipal AudStorium
and a whole lot of citizens from all
walks of life who would enjoy com
munity "sings" just as much as the :
Chicagoans do. fust see how the peo
ple turn out for band"concerts. Yet at
a band concert they, are only on the
bleachers," as Karlton Hackett would :
say. They are not really taking
part. With a real live Civic Music
club in Omaha, with the right people
at the helm, there is no limit
to what could be accomplished, not
only in a musical way, but in com
munity uplift as well. And this club
might also co-operate with other clubs
and with the city in its activities.
The city has already shown interest
along these lines by what has been
donein the parks and with municipal
beaches this summer. Why not get
busy and have one right away.
Echoes of the. Ellis Opera company

cal circles. Farrar, with her thought

vulgar conception of the character of

with vocal gifts, and the thorough
ly great Louise Homer, who thrilled
Omahaas. it is not given to many
to do, "and consequently received a
deserved ovation, ail of these magnifi
cent artists are still being discussed .
and revelled in by the musical en
thusiasts. With stich an orchestra,
chorus and ballet, such-principals, and
such a master mind directing, the
vivid memories of the event will long
It was interesting to feel how the
melodies of "II Travatore," the poor
hackneyed, abused and worn melodies,
which every hand organ ana me
chanical machine, from the earliest
membties of our youth have ground to
pieces, lived with all their freshness
and glowing charm under the magic-
touch ot Maestro uampanini ana nis
orchestra. "II Trovatore" has been
played in Omaha before, but we must
needs agree with the musical friend
w-ho said, "I have seen 'II Trevatore'
before, but I have never really seen
'II Trovatore until last
In the review of the opera "Car
