TODAYS A D TO BEAUTY
Hair is by far the most conspicu
ous thing about us and is probably
A most easily damaged by bad or
careless treatment. If we are very
careful in hair w'ashing, we will have
virtually no hair troubles. An es
pecially fine shampoo for this weather
one that brings out all the natural
beauty of the hair, that dissolves and
entirely removes all . dandruff, ex
cess oil and dirt can easily be used
at trifling expense by simply dissolv
ing a teaspoonf ul of Canthrox (which
you can get at any druggist's) in a
cup of hot water. This makes a full
cup of shampoo liquid enough so it
is easy to apply it to all the hair in
stead of just the top of the head.
This chemically dissolves all imour
ities and creates a soothing, cooling
lather. Rinsing leaves the Bcalp spot
lessly clean, soft and pliant, while
the hair takes on the glossy richness
of natural color, also a fluffiness
which makes it seem much heavier
than it is. After Canthrox shampoo,
arranging the hair is a pleasure.

A RECORD CROVd
FOR A CONCERT
Seven Thousand Omahans Jam
Auditorium, to Hear thei Great
Irish Tenor in Popular
By HENRIETTA M. REES.
The largest audience that eve
turned out in Omaha for a musical
attraction, was present Friday at
the song recital of John McCormack.
Last year, the seat sale for Mc
Cormack's recital eclipsed all previ
ous records, and this ear the sate
considerably surpassed (hat of last
Mr. Green, who managed the con
cert, states that there were 7,000 per
sons present. With the exception ol
a few seats upon the stage it was a
complete sell out, and without doubt
from a financial point of view, one of
the most successful concerts "ever
given in this city. '
Only One McCormack.
After all, there is but one John Mc
Cormack. His voice in. itself is of the
utmost beauty. It is a lyric tenor,
not heavy, but of the purest quality
and full of warmth and resonance.
It is flawlessly smooth of tone
throughout its wide range, and just
the sound of it gives musical delight.
Add to this beauty of voice the mas
tery of technique which MCormack
has, his breath control, his remarka
ble, legato, the cleanness of his every
tone, and all the .other equipment
which goes to make artistic interpre
tation easy, cap it all with a tempera
ment which feels and knows how to
express all the beauties of the music
chosen, and a personality which radi
ates good nature, and you have some
of the reasons for McCormack's pop
ularity and charm. For charm he
certainly has, in far more than ordi
nary measure, and every song he
sings he graces with it, over and
above its technical perfection, to such
a degree that no matter what the
song may be, every one present
Mr. McCormack was prompt in be
ginning, and prefaced the , program
with a spirited singing of the "Star
Spangled Banner," which brought the
audience to its feet, as a large flag
was lowered above, the singer.
The program chosen . was a most
delectable one, both from a musical
and popular point of view. It opened
with two arias from Handel's forgot
ten operas, v'Oh Sleep Why . Dost
Thou Leave Me?" from "Semele,"and
"Morai Si" from "Rodelinda." Iri
these he satisfied the most exacting
demands of the musical contingent.
Every note was clear, the sustained
work was exquisite . and the broad
lines,' short phrases, thrills and orna
ments given with such due propor
tions as to awaken the highest aJ
His second group brought four un
usual and fascinating, songs from our
aHres; "Automne" by Gabriel Faure,
a lovely French modern " song;
"Ideale' by Tosti. " typical .,1)bth of
Italian' song and of this Cdrnposer, and
two1 songs by Rachmaninoff, the Rus
sian, which were characteristic, in
tensely dramatic; and among the
most beautiful of all the program.

mation. He was distributing cir-x

He was held under $5,000 bond for

songs thatJohn McCormack awoke
the wildest enthusiasm. There were
four of them, all new to Omaha pro
grams, and most artistically and ef
fectively arranged with suitable ac
companiment. "The Fagan Love
Song" arranged by Harty was in
serious vein, and in wide contrast to
the "Light of the Moon," (Hughes)
which followed it. "The Hard of
Armagh" brought much sentiment,
and( the rollicking Balynure ballad,
a bit of humor. A regular ovation
was given Mr. McCormack at this
time, and when he returned for en
core, and sang among them "Mother
MaChree," and "I Hear You Calling
Me," the big audience would not be
content with added bows, until finally-
"Drink to Me Only With Thine
Eyes," old English, was given.
Groups of American Songs.
In his last group of American
songs, Mr. McCormack showed the
same care in selection of songs
which marked all the rest of his pro
gram. "The Last x.Iour" by A.
Walter Kramer was a remarkable
song. It is intensely dramatic, and
has a powerful emotional appeal both
in words, and music, that brought
one of the most impressive effects
of the evening. This group also
contained "The Cave" a' new and
grateful song by Edwin" Schneider,
the accompanist who was enthusi
astically received. At the close Mr.
McCormack sang "Keep the Home
After every group Mr. McCor
mack gave encores and returned for
many acknowledgements, so many
times tha.t it was impossible to keep
track of them. Mr. Folah, the vio
linist who assisted with three num
bers proved himself a worthy asso
ciate . for Mr. McCormack. He
draws an excellent tone from his in
strument and plays with a fine sense
of authority and discrimination, win
ning deserved encores and plaudits.
"Praeludium and Allegro" by Pug
nani was given with a broad sweep,
and the old style Concerto by Mo
zart held much of style, while the
two modern numbers at the close
were each colored and varied in pro
portion to their demands.
Edwin Schneider, Mr. McCor
mack's accompanist, has been to
Omaha many times in the past when
he has made for himself many ad
mirers both as in accompanist and
composer. He played most effec
tive accompaniaments for both Mr.
McCormack and Mr.' Polah, giving
each artistic musical support.
