On the First Program.
Madame Tulia Claussen, whose
operatic and concert successes have
placed her in the foremost rank of the
world's greatest singers, was born in
Sweden. She studied at the Royal
Academv in Stockholm, and later m
Berlin, making her debut as leading
mezzo-soprano at the RoJal Opera to
Stockholm. I here she was heard Dy
Mr. Andreas Dippel. who engaged her
' for the Chicago-Philadelphia Opera
company; for the seasons 1913, 1914
and 1915. Her-American debut as Or
trud in "Lohengrin," created a stir
that left no room for doubt as to her
title to a high place among operatic
artists of the day. Her Brunhilde won
.even greater critical and public ac
claim. Arthur Hackett, since his tour with
; the Boston Festival Orchestra in 1913.
has appeared with the St. Louis Or
chestra, Apollo Club of Chicago, Wor
cester Oratorio Society, the Rubin
stein Club of Pittsburgh' and at festi
vals throughout the country. He has
toured several times with Mme. Ge
raldine Farrar, appearing also with
Mme. Melba and as soloist on nine

Old American Family.
; ' Olga Samaroff, who is the wife of
Leopold Strokow, conductor of the
Philadelphia orchestra, is one of the
few American artists whose family
has been represented in every Amer
ican war from the revolution to the
present war. Her father was an army
offic-et, and Mme. Samaroff was born
at the army post at Galveston, Tex.
A brother is at present fighting with
the American army in France.
America, always Slow to recognize
its own musical children, has, since
the spectacular success achieved by
Lucy Gates during the past season,
risen in acclaim and given this artist
the , whole-souled welcome which
Americans know so generously how
to give to those "weighed and not
Within 12 months Lucy Gates has

Another Great Trio.
Realizing that the demand for cham
ber music is growing year by year
in this country, George Barrere, Car
los Salzedo and Paul Kefer, flutist,
harpist and 'cellist, respectively, have
decided to devote themselves almost
entirely to this work and have formed
the Trio de Lucia. AltKough com
posed of three distinctly French per
sons, the finer works of American
composers are always ghren serious
consideration, especially by Geotge
Barrere, who seemingly makes It an
artistic duty to delve about for pew
and interesting offerings.
Jascha Heifetz a Wonder.
Jascha Heifetz's recital at the Met
ropolitan Opera house on Sunday

Lakeview Will Stage Big
Hawaiian Dance Tuesday
No one that attended the country
store dance held at Lakeview park
the past week went away dissatisfied
because of the lack of fun at the occa
sion. The prize list announced for
the event was augmented at the last
minute to twice its original size, with
the prizes so varied that one end had
a bulldog and the other a gauze un
dershirt. Everyone took his or her
prize good naturedly, whether it was
only for the fun to be had from the
article or the actual value to the re
cipient. The 'next big event is the
Hawaiian ball to take place Tuesday,
July 23. Prizes from the land of Ha
waii will be given to those who enter
the contest of determining the best
exponent of Hawaiian tefpsichore.
Souvenirs of the occasion will be dis
tributed to everyone attending. Even
Carl Lamp and his Jazz harmonists
will offer a new line of harmony.
Next Wednesday, Lakeview park will
also be the scene of the Omaha ?4er
chants picnic and outing. This is one
of the really big events of the year.
Extra! Extra! Clown
Is Real Millionaire
George JIaptzezi mi muomre czowr
Did you ever hear of the "million
aire clown r ins name is ueorge
Hartzell, and, what's more, he is com
ing to Omaha Wednesday, August 7,
at Twentieth and Paul streets. This
notable character of the sawdust is
one of a band of 80 funny fellows who
travel with the Ringling Brothers' circus.
Of course Hartzel isn't worth a mil
lion, not by several dollars but he
is a very rich man. Mrs. Hartzell is
the wardrobe mistress, in charge of
all the thousands of costumes which
dress the circus in silks and spangles.
Husband and wife have worked shoul
der to shoulder for more than a doz
en years. They have earned good sal
aries, saved their money and invested
it wisely. Today they own property
in Chicago. Boston and Philadelphia
and have an income quite sufficient to
keep them in comfort for the rest of
their lives. Should you ask Mr. and
Mrs. Hartzell why they still toil un
der the white tops when they might
be leading a life of idleness, they will
tell you that they tried it once tor
just one year the longest 12 months
they ever spent.
"There's a lure about the sawdust,
the blare of the band and the hoop-la
of the rings that was too strong to re
sist," says Hartzell. "We had to get
back to it all and we are never hap
pier than when the 'call' comes in the
springtime and we know that we are
to take to the road for another sea
son." And when the Hartzells "take to the
road" it is not to be supposed that
their business interests are neglected.
Mrs. Hartzell is an expert typist and
it is not unusual for those who fre
quent the "back of the scenes" por
tion of Ringlingville to see her taking
a dictation from her husband.
In addition to her duties as ward
robe mistress, Mrs. Hartzell is official
chaperone with the circus and to her
falls the duty of looking after the
s,ocial welfare of the 300 ballet girls
who take. part in this season's gigantic
spectacle of romance. "In Days of,
Old." It is this pleasant office thatM
has won her the title of the little
mother of the circus."

Correct Time Sold by
Woman for $2,500 a Year
Probably no other hill in the world
has had so strangely varied a history
or played so important a part in the
affairs of men as that at Greenwich,
in England. The granite line across
the footpath on its summit is the
meridian from which the longitude on
every British map and chart is calcu
lated.. All England sets its time by
the mean solar clock. There is a
large galvano-magnetic clock fixed on
the outside wall of the observatory
and divided into 24 hours. There are
many who believed that this clock
is kept going by the sun. They do
not know that the fixed stars are the
real timekeepers from which Britons
check their daily progress.
To this galvano-magnetic clock in
the wall comes every Monday a wo
man, Miss Belleville of Maidenhead,
who makes $2,500 a year out of the
queerest occupation in the world.
She sells the time to London watch
makers. Many years ago the then
astronomer royal suggested to her
father that if he took the corrected
time of a certified chronometer every
week he could no doubt find numer
ous clients. So Mr. Belleville bought
a watch made for the duke of Essex
and then worked up a business with
it. When he died his widow sold
the time until she reached the age of
81, and then she handed over the busi
ness to her daughter. When Miss
Belleville visits Greenwich at the
beginning of every week her chrono
meter is corrected and she is given
an official certificate. From that her

at the new Klalto. It Is a refreshing love
story with lots of action and lots of humor
and Reld appears well In It. On Monday
