A good deal misht be written about
certain present aspects of Mr. Caruso's

Homer's Ammri was wonderfully good
to look at. Ancient Lgypti.in taste, ()f

but a modem llwtamri would surely
never hme cist an eye on Ani when

In the coiirsv ot the first two acts or the

ideas of Us own. Mr Kothler went wan
dering, and there weie others. Tho
ballet, not being ao-piaintcd with Tenny-t-en's

two oboes, two ilarlnets, two basket horns
four I'reiuh horns, two ba-soons nnd one
tuiura bnssoon. I)oubtl"s tho xlsible
pipseme of some of these instruments
furnished nu object lesson to some of the
aiidiein.e, but It is to lie hoped that no one
mistook Mr Kohl's double bass clarinet
lor the (ontrn bassoon. Purists mlKht
enter a mild protest iieuinst this substi-
t tit ion, whii h occurred uKiiin in the Strauss
serenade, opus 7, but It was teully not a
very serious mutter, since In both compo

merely to provide low !ms notes and not

He said the Knglish sheets urn dull and

As a cure In point take the London
papers' account of the Messina earth

stating that their correspondent had
heard tumors of a serious earhquake.
Then followed n number of disjointed und
disconnected statements from various

bad to construct Ids own xerslon of the
disaster. I once usltcd an Hngllsh editor
how this cam about and he explaliud
that they did not dare glx'o th" story too

directly from their correspondent. Intel

Mr. Van Anda in i "commending tho

"Do not use slang in your headlines,"

If Fnnnu llauthornc had not been
such an obstinate young xvomttn nnd
nrted contrary to tho way everybody in
Hlndle thought she ought to act and
contrary thus to tho xvay that every
other woman In Hlndle would have acted,
the play by Htntiley Houghton acted lust
night nt the Maxlne Hlllott Theatre xvould
never hax'e astonished Iindon nor hax-e
been called by somo careless agitator
the second "Doll's House.
It xvas this obstinacy of. the heroine
combined with her wholly new theoiles
new thnt Is In Hlndle as to the outlet!
of n glil who Imd. well, had gone axvuy
x lth u xoinic man to spend a xveek end
nnd did nut take the precaution to marry
him first, which mado her seem into ora
nelmvr to sensitive watcher for some
symptons of a recurrence of Ibsen on
the dramatic horizon.
The obstinacy of this young woman
prevents her from marrying the young
man merely because he has consented to
go through the process known as "making
an honest girl of her." She feels that
she Is quite ns honest as he. To marry a
man who broke his engagement wnn an
other gtrl merely that he might follow
his father's command to do the right thing
by her does not In the least soem neces
sary to her. Since she Is perfectly able
to earn her HvInK Just ns well since tho
trip as she xvas before It she scorns the
offer of the young man and prefers to
remain as she xvas.
It may be that Fanny was sufficiently
revolutionary to stir limine, out we oouni
If she will altogether supplant A'oro In
the hearts of emancipated xvoinanhood.
Then .Vol it was there tlrst. The final
declaration of her Independence came as
the event of an outing which was dis
closed through tho drowning of n friend
of the heroine. The "xvakes" or week end
August bank holiday in Lancashire was
to be spent by Fanny and one or the mill
hands In Hlndle with a friend nt Hlack-
The droxvnlng of this girl rex'ealed that
Fanny xvas not there. Instead her des
tination had been Llandnudo and her com
panion young Alan Jrffeotc, xvho had car

his father x-alued so highly because It
was the symWd of his wraith and standing
In tho mill community. The fact that
Alan xxns engaged to mnrry the daughter
of Sir Anthony Furra, another dignitary
In the mill town, did not long prex'ent the
young man from starting on his week
end outing with tho Independent heroine,
It xvas the promise of Jeffcote, once a
mill hand himself, to the parents of Fanny
they shall be treated right, which led the
old man to tell his son that ho must
marry the girl, although the breaking off
of tho engagement to tho daughter of a
mnn of title was the failure of his highest
ambition for the tsiy he expected the mill
girl would so eagerlv accept. It needed
k threat to dlslnbeilt him to bring the
boy to asking the girl, xvho took the week
end trig, to marry hlni. Ills religious
betrothed consents to tho new alliance
since she bellexcs that Fanny hus a
stronger claim on him than sho hns.
Kverybody In the play Is ready to be sac
rl ticd to the noble cause of saving the
good name of Fanny.
Yet all their arguments nnd sacrifices
nro In xaln. For Fannt; will hax'e noth
ing of this man luge. She tells tho some
what disconcerted Alan that she went
with htm Just as he might have gone with
any girl on a lark. She franklv declares
that love did not enter Into the matter.
and the fact that he hus thrown over the
girl be was betrothed to does not Incline
her any more to marry a man who Is her
superior In life and to whom she may
prove a constant drawback. Then she
feels no fear of the future, since she will
be able to go to some other town and llnd
work In a mill without difficulty. Send
ing the boy buck to woo once mora the
young woman who released him from his
promise. Fun n v Is quite satisfied to be
freo from any necessity of marrying her
companion In her escapade.
Stanley Houghton, who wrote this play,
was hitherto In England known only
through some short pieces xvhich were
not even heard of In this country. Mlsi
llornlmann took nor company up from
Manchester last spring to act this three
act play In London. So great was the
Interest It aroused there thnt the Shu
berts organized a company to bring the
drama to this country. It was not alone
tho conduct of the herolno xvhich excited
to such a degree the interest of the Eng
lish people. The studios of character
among tho Lancashire mill owners nota
bly the threo varied types represented by
the father of the wilful Fannu and the I
rather ot her companion and his be
trothed were pronounced true to llfo.
The author has divided his story Into
four acts. Of .these the second has two
scenes, which Is curious enough, In these
days, especially In a drama of this type.
The backgrounds for the action are rooms
In the house of the heroine s humble home
and In tho house of tho wealthy mill
oxxner. Jeffcote, father of Alan, where
moBt of the action passes.
Mr. Houghton has told his story In
straightway narrative stylo with no at
tempt to utilize any artifices of the play
wright to make It Interesting. He has
even departed so far from the conven
tional methods of dramatlo construction
If that hncknyed phrnan may be nar-
doned as to take the risk of Introducing
his heroine In scene i or Aca I. ami then
his heroine In scene 1 of act I und then
keeping her out of sight of the audience
until the last act. So what Is seen and
heard of thn rebellious Fannv Is confined
practically to the last act In tho first
scene she Is meroly trying to explain to
her parents her whereabouts over the
