By HENRIETTA M. REES.
HE San Carlo Opera com
' pany has again visited
us and left many pleasant
memories in its trail.
There is always much to
admire in its productions
and in looking in retro
spect certain important features stand
forth prominently the work of Pe-
roni, the director, for instance, whoj
quietly, yet unobtrusively, guided
each performance. There was no
prompter's bo:;, and few people stop-
ped to realize how much the entire
interpretation of the opera hung upon
bis baton. He is an excellent musician
and really achieves remarkable r-
. . ults with the material in hand,
) Elizabeth Amsden, the leading so
ijrano, who made her first appearance
pere witththe company this year, is a
idistinct acquisition. Her voice is
jbright, powerful and excellently
Schooled and at her two appearances
Ifn widely differing roles she was a de-
fiaea success, ,
t the work ct Marcella Lraft on
Tuesday night will not soon be for
gotten. Her lovely voice, her artistic
singing and clever acting in Tra
viata" will make the memory of this
x production stand forth as one of the
most Impressive of the season. Future
appearances of this distinctly Amer
ican singer.will be anticipated with
ueltght. ; --
' We liked Joseph Royer in "Gio,
conda," but not so well in "The Jew'
els of the Madonna." Ilia high tones
are clear and ringing, but his low
voice docs not carry, and it seemed as

very good. From year to year we re

other members of the cast who have
made good and who return to in

t ! printer made us say that this produc

TO SING FOR THE TUESDAY
What we had said was that this oro
Auction compared favorably wtih any
, otner production ot this opera yet
seen. Of course the production by the
' Ellis Opera company last year had
, the orchestra, and 'a larger chorus,
and Komer, and 'there is only one
Homer. But in cpite of Kingston's
wonderful voice, we liked" Salazar
much better in the part of Manrico
and felt that dramatically the San
Carlo gave a more even performance.
We have come to expect that all Le
"ttoras must be stiff, but Luisa Darclee
was less so than Marie Rappold., But
'we would hot like to say that this
Operformanee compared favorably with
any other production yet seen, for
there remains to us distinct recollec
tions of the "Carmen" of last year
and the performances of the Boston
opera at the Boyd, which weft re
markable, and also the "Traviata" of

service of his Uncle Sam, decided
after enlistment that he would like
to-become a member of the band. So
he took up the saxophone, and, much
to the amusement of his fellows,
practiced industriously in , his spare
time. Now he has not only become a
member of the band, out has been ad

play on another instrument as well as

.. Recently , Fritz . Kreisler issued a
remarkable document,' asking that his
contracts for concerts be cancelled
during the period of the war. In this
he sets forth that he was an officer in
the Austrian army and that he fought
on the Russian front until lie was
wounded and honorably discharged.
He said he had sent money back to
Austria before the United 'States de
clared war on Germany, but never for
ammunitions. He sent an allowance
to his old and paralyzed father, and to
the support of several orphan chil
dren, many of them of Russian and
Serbian parentage, who were, killed
during the war, and-- principally to an
association organized by him and
composed of all stranded and starv
ing musicians In Vienna, regardless of
nationality. , He' also stated that he
has not sent any money back since
the entrance of the United States into
war with Germany and had in no way
been insensible to the debt he owed
America. ; ::Vs; .

DEAR Friends: Christmas gift
buying seems to have com
menced in real earnest. Traveling up
and down the streets you meet shop
pers everywhere Shoppers to the
right of you! Shoppers to the left of
you! Shoppers in front of youl And
no mistaking1 ' either that they are
other than Christmas Shoppers, for
the happy expression on each face is
evidence enough of the wholesome
charm and refreshing cheer of the
Christmas Spirit. And surely with
the world bleeding from war wounds,
there is a crying need for an over
flowing measure of sunshine and
smiles as we are all able to give; a
need for scattering Christmas cheer

fore. The shops are glowing with
the Spirit of Christmas. Shelves,
cases and counters are laden with

somehow comes only with Christmas.
