The introduction nf Mr. Herbert'sopera
t' ti. .s public was quite the most coura
ge us adventure of Mr. Dippel's series of
rn rmanceH. It was an excurhion into
an untried field, whereas "II Segreto dl
M.anne" and "Quo V.ulis" both belonged
tn ..pecies thoroughly familiar to the
rpe'atii' st.n;e The performance of
Natoma srved to Mimulato a lare
neaitre of public curiosity and also to
i'u.trate two or three truths which have
fte mently been preached by the critical
frt'Mriuty in this town.
In the first place it served to prove that
the funeral public cares little in what lan
f uaean opera is Riven. The fashionable
cperapoers do not concern themselves
ati. iit th" opra for its own sake. Msny
cf hm never take the trouble to Ie;rn
the nAry of an opera, and many never

It is no very profound secret that tho
i"ir.ffa-io of the Metropolitan Opera
Heitv u continually searching for a so
prano with skill in coloraturo. For somo
ie.ion it continues to bo a conviction of
the poer behind the throne at the court
of lyric art that tho public welfare cannot
be preserved with repeated performances
f f "Lucia di Lammormoor," "Uigoletto."
"Uk Traviata" and similar compositions.
Frieda Hempel of Berlin appears to be a
favorite candidate for the post of honor.
Mi Hempel is a good Mor.art singer and
a'-'i delivers with great smoothness the
muin of the first flower maiden In "Par
sifal " She will not sing flower maidens
here because her salary will be too high

Meanwhile it may be suggested that tho
impresario of tho Metropolitan would
re dad to enliven his repertoire by the
revival of some old works not familiar
to this public Mozart's "Cosl fan tutte"
is on of th opoxaswhieh are under con
sidration and which might well bo in
troduced into the local list. It is a charm
ing work, hut it calls for ft company of
Mtigersof about the same style and general
i ve of excellence as "I Nor.zndl Figaro."
At Homo the festival committee has
thought it worth while to arrange for per
fnrrndtices of Pergolesi's "Mvietta e
'J raTolo," Cimarnsa'B "Matrimonio Se

'T'HE first objections
raised by manufac

goods. "Private, brands."
3. "Our goods are staple
no different from the
