In the seventh week It hnd n special

There was still nnotlier newcomer In
Inst evening's performance, lor Horben
Wlthersponn hnd an opportunity to sing
Sarniitro for the lltxt time. Tlie others
who were heard nnd seen hail all taken
part In the previous representations.
Miss Hempll's ndvent made a distinct
nnd valuable Improvement in the an
semble. Her voice was more happy In
the music of Axtxiflammantr than iu
Hint of the roles In which she had pre
vlously been heard.
Furthermore, she seemed tn he more
nt homo In the style, nnd Mozart's reel'
tntlve gained greatly by her delivery of
it. The dramatic I'lgiilllciinco of the
Queen'x music was restored. H had
been missing In the earlier perform
ances. It seems to bo unnecessary to
make new comments on Miss Heni'pcl'H
voice nnd vocal skill. She disclosed the,
full measure of her powers In "11 Har
blere dl Slvlglln" and nt tho same time
clearly marked their llmlls. She Is ri
useful nddltlon tn the company, but the
rank of her famoim pmlecossorn in
florid roles nt the Metropolitan will
hardly be accorded her.
Mme. Giidsk! has sung Pamina tin
tho same stage frequently nnd she
hns no new revelations to make. She
wu full of spirit last evening and won
nn honorable share of the npplause. Mr
Wltherspoon's voice does not possess
the deep tones required by some parts
of ftornafro'.t music, but the basso nc
qultted himself with great credit. Hla
cantilena was smooth nnd sonorous and
he sang with dignity of style. Only a
voice of exceptional range can compass
with power the length nnd breadth of
Naraxtro's two great airs.
The performance ns a whole was
ugnln delightful, with the exception o't
the one blot upon It made by the unsuit
nble style of the 'frit Lady. Mr. Sle
zak's voice had n hard edge last eve
ning, but he sang with tine taMe Htid
muslcnt manner. Mr. Hertz conducted
with excellent Judgment.
