of the presentation, Ita sincerity of spirit
and fervency of utterance (teemed to Im
press the audience deeply. It la aeldom
tint a more quiet and attentive assemblage
thim that of laat nlsht In found In the Met
ropolitan. It wa apparently an audience
which had enjoyed German works In the
p.i-t. for It accorded to Alfred Hertz, the
conductor, a prolonged welcome, which
mil"! have given him great Joy.
An earnest endeavor had been made
to improve the presentation of the work.
This was most readily noticed In the slng
Inc of the chorus of women behind the

shading reflected credit on one of the un

Is Czech by birth, Viennese by experience
and partly French by training. In "Tann
haUser." however, he sings very much like
a Cirrman. Hla Impersonation of the
wandering knight has already been recog
nized here as his best. It was not vocally
at its best last nlghj, but it was none the
leRs worthy of much admiration.
It Is not possible to get up nny great
enthusiasm for .Mr. Well's Wolfram, but
it is an honest effort. The singer hns the
misfortune to poosess a hard and dry voice.
Mr. Witherspoon as the Landgrave was the
other important member of the cast and
he sang very well.

Isaao Weill, attorney for Jnmes J.
Farmer, seller of "rum editions de liuo,"
was called to tho stand In tho United
HtHtes District Court yesterday to testify
in tho 150,000 stilt brotiRbt against Farmer
and others by Mrs. Kmmit Hlrd, n wealthy
widow of Halt Uko City, Utah.
Weill, under presstiro from Clifford
Ibter of counsel for Mrs.Blrd. admitted
that lie had visited the latter'H brother.
Clarence McCornick, a broker with offices
at 71 Broadway, for the purposo of asking
McCornick to )orsuado his sister to
withdraw her suit.
Another admission made by tho lawyer
witness was that ho lind sought some
ono who know of Mr. Boer's lesnl activi
ties in nn effort to discredit tho attorney
for the plaintiff.
"Is that your usual method of procodurn
In such cases," asked Mr. Baer.
"When I know what kind of a man I'm
dealing with I usually take any kind .of
measures to prevent him from hurling
me." retorted Weill.
Attorney Baer's ostensible purposo In
calling bis opponent to tho stand was to
(iia-stion him about tho Nemerov affidavit.
Weill insisted that ho had not forced
Nemerov to sign tills affidavit, us tho
latter testltied at yestorday's hearing in
the trial. Weill further denied thut ho
had added anything to the deposition
after Nomerov had signed it.
Two other witnoastm corroborated tho
testimony of Irving Nemerov, tho cx
cmployeo of tho Kellar-Farmer company,

tho request of Attorney .Weill. Theso
were nhani McAdam, a lawyer, and

THE stage is being set for the Horse Show. On both sides of the
barrier the spectacle will be a splendid one.
It will be no place for a man who, consciously or unwittingly,
transgresses the sartorial code.
The conventions of men's wear are fixed but the standards
governing its production are as wobbly as the tan-bark floor of the
ring after the jumps.
It is not enough to know what io wear. It is quite as necessary
to know where to get it.
The John Wanamaker store is the place.
The counsel of Savile Row is behind it in the unquestioned
style, the fine fabrics, the fit that banishes self-consciousness.
The service is personal, and intelligent.
Only one thing ktissing the extravagance of cost usually

The service of The Men's Store is equal lo all the demands men may make upon it.

to be ready to fill' all the needs of man with taste and standard in dress promptly and
satisfactorily, cither through the section of the rcady-lo-wcar or through the Burlington ,
