perior to the average suits at that price in fact, have more merit
to them than we have ever been able to offer at that figure. Excel
lent materials, perfect lines, unexcelled workmanship, and faultless
finish stand out prominently in every model. Serges and home
spuns are the materials from which the' are fashioned, and the
blacks, whites, tans, blues, grays, and black-and-white stripes in

matter of wonderment how, as the season advances, each

AT THE THEATERS
French Opera Company In "Manon."
Fulfilling every promise of Its pro
moters, the French Opera Company, of
New Orleans, began a two weeks' en
gagement at the Belasco Theater last
night with a uniformly pleasing and, at
times, splendid performance of Masse
net's colorful ".Manon." Those who are
mourning the loss this season of the
annual visitation of the New York opera
should dry their eyes, look over their
wardrobe, and prepare to enjoy their
favorite opera from the throats of an
organization of singers whose peers may
be found only on the stage of the Metro
politan. Between such a performance as that of
"Manon" last evening and the same
opera's presentation by the singers of
the Metropolitan there Is this vast dif
ferencethe one costs 12 a seat and
the other .$10. The other differences arc
mainly the nonessentials of scenery and
costuming. The real lover of music Is
found usually among those to whom the
question of price Is a vital consideration.
To such a one it Is not worth five times
an much to hear Caruso as It Is to hear
Fontaine, the principal tenor of this New
Orleans company, nor twice as much.
Fontaine sang the role of the Cheva
lier des Grieux. His voice is a tenor
of purest tone. His method is French
and totally different from that of Caruso,
to whom he has been likened in other
cities. His voice lacks the tremendous
power and subtle, sensuous appeal of
Caruso's. But with the exception of the
golden-throated Italian, whose like is
known but once in a generation, Fon
taine should have no riwal when he sings
In New York next season, as It is under
stood he Is to do.
In the title role. Mile. Rolland was heard.
She is the only prominent member of
the New Orleans company who appeared
with that organization when it visited
Washington last season. The manage
ment is to be congratulated upon retain
ing this charming and highly gifted
soprano. As Manon. Mile. Rolland was
not given full opportunity to do justice
to her voice or technical skill. In all of
his operas Massenet seems to have writ
ten more for the orchestra than the
voices. There are many long passages of
recitative and brilliant orchestration, with
but few real moments for the singers.
Fontaine's biggest moment comes in
the second scene of the third act. when
he has determined to forget Manon in
his duties as priest In the seminary at
St. Sulpice This song, beginning with
"Ah, depart, fair image," gives Fon
taine every opportunity, and his rendi
tion brought him repeated calls. Mile.
Rolland was at her best in the first
j scene of this act, in her song, "List to
the Voice of Youth " Their duets were
most effectively handled, also. Two
other voices of remarkable sweetness
and power were heard in the roles of
Lescaut and the Comte des Grieux, sung
by Montano and Caillol.
Another marked improvement over
the performances last season was no-
i tlceable In the orchestra department.
The present orchestra numbers forty
fix e, and gave complete satisfaction un
der the skillful leadership of M. de la
Fuente The choral numbers were un
usually well handled, and the effect of
the several ensembles was stirring. An
attractive and graceful ballet is an ad
All in all. the French Opera Company
is one of the most welcome visitations
we have been honored with this season.
These singers will be here for two
weeks, giving fourteen different operas
Fontaine may be heard twice more this
week. Wednesday night in "Les Hugue
nots" and Friday night In "Sigurd." in
which role he has been engaged to ap
pear at the Paris Grand Opera House
It is a pleasure to give a cordial greet
ing to this distinguished cluster of
j singers and musicians. Messieurs et
mesoames, vous est men venus.

Zeldn Seam, In "The Xet Egg.
Those of Washington's theater-goers
who have solemnly resolved to eschew
their favorite amusement during Holy
Week will realize before the end of the
week that the keeping of this resolution
Is a real penance If they stay away from
"The Nest Egg." in which Miss Zelda
Sears is being starred at the National
by Joseph M. Gaites.
The piece is of a simple nature and the
characters are people we all know that
is, all of us who have Hived in a small
town. But It is Miss Sears, quite as
much as the play, who deserves especial
notice and commendation. Her light,
which heretofore has been somewhat
obscured beneath a bushel of minor
parts, glows brilliantly in this "Ameri
can play, with an American theme, by
an American author. There Is not a
moment in her delineation of the vlllaqe
dressmaker romantic, fond of novels,
and gossipy though she may be that she
docs not creep Into the hearts of the
audience, and it Is certain that the mem
ory of her creation of the character of
Hetty Gandy will remain for a long time
in the minds of those who braved tra
dition and attended the performance
The management has selected a capa
ble cast, whose work is so uniformly
good that even the star's characterization
does not stand out unduly. Among these
are Blanche Hall, who will be remem
berd here for her work with the Colum
bia players last season; Evelyn Bartbn.
a most attractive ingenue; Charles Gott
hold, the "god from the machine." and
Charles Lane, the "hero" of the piece.
THE NEW LYCEUM.
Jardin de Paris Girls.
"The Jardin de Parts Girls," In two
big acts of "Jagsville," are the attrac
tion at the New Lyceum this week. The
show is entirely different from last
year's, and the changes have Improved
It greatly. The "live-wire comedian,"
Abe Leavitt, Is the feature of the produc
tion. The two acts are well balanced by a
good olio. Rago is an expert at unfast
ening large assortments of locks and
handcuffs. Ray Leavitt, Augusta Phelps,
and Win Clark, In songs, and Able
Leavitt and Marian Campbell, In timely
topics, are exceptional.
Washington has had quite a run of
wrestlers In the last couple of weeks,
but the match put up by Cora Living
ston, the champion female wrestler, and
an unknown from the company was as
exciting as any 'by the other sex.
"The Smart Set" began its last week's
engagement at the Howard Theater last
night. The company enjoyed the largest
week's business in the history of the
house the past week.
This week many new song numbers
will be introduced by Mr. Dudley, Miss
Walker, Andrew Tribble. Lotty Grady,
Ella Anderson, and Alberta Crane, mak
ing an almost entire change In the
musical programme over last week's.
A new German method of recording
sound waves employs a lead pencil line
of varying thickness, formed under the
control of the. vibrations on a strip of
Headed by Amelia Stone and Armand
Kalisz, in a musical offering which sur
passes any sketch seen in Washington
this season, a bill of splendid acts is
offered at Chase's this week.
"Mon Amour" is the tlUe of a musical
romance In which the late stars of "The
Waltz Dream" captivated the audience
yesterday and were accorded prolonged
applause. Miss Stone has a soprano
voice of unusual charm, while Mr. Kalisz
blended beautifully with his rich bary
tone. Their rcndiUon of his own num
bers is deserving of the highest praise.
Miss Edith Luckett. a popular Washing
ton comedienne, was given a hearty wel
come in a playlet, "The Butterfly," in
which she has the title role, that of an
actress. She has a winning personality
and scored a distinct hit. Miss Luckett
is aDiy assisted Dy jere uraay ana Law
rence C. Knapp. Two old favorites,
George Lyons and Bob Yosco, proved
they have not been forgotten. Their
Italian musical numbers were highly ap
preciated. Capt. Jack Kelly, assisted by Violet
Kelly, gave a demonstration of manipu
lating the Australian stock whip.
Julian and Dyer, two eccentric athletes,
opened the bill, and Monroe Hopkins and
Lola Axtell scored In a skit called "Trav
eling." Little Billy made good as the
"tiniest headliner." The motion pictures,
depicting "The Deluge," brought the per
formance to a close.
The headline act In the vaudeville bill
at the Casino Theater this week is
Bristol's ponies. The act Includes sev
eral horres and one mule, all of which
demonstrate the efficiency of animal
training. One of the horses does several
dances and picks articles out of a closed
desk. The mule furnishes the opportu
nity for laughs with its kicking, and an
equilibrist gae an exhibition of his spe
cialty Dunn. Warren and Mack sang
several numbers, while Harry Rose and
Will H. Vedder and company. In "A
Cry In the Night," completed the bill.
"The College Girls."
Repeating last year's success to a ca
pacity house, "The College Girls" arrived
at the Gayety last night, and if applause
can be taken as a criterion, it is the
same big scream it was last year. The
costuming and electrical effects surpass
any show seen at this house this season.
Joe Fields and George Scanlon still
head the company, and that they are
able to amuse is saying the least. Flor
ence Mills, as the college widow, plays
her part to perfection. Klara Hendrix
caused numerous encores with her "Mu
sic Man" number and other songs.
Edith Parfra, a young lady in a start
ling dress, sang "Gee I Wish I Could
Swim" with great effect. Andrew Tombs'
specialty was one of the be:-t pieces of
individual work of the evening.
The show Is clever throughout, and Is
sure to please the Washington and Bos
ton baseball clubs when they attend the
performance Wednesday, evening as
guests of the management.
The O'Connor-Rone Stock Company,
which opened their engagement at the
Majestic Theater yesterday, proved them
selves by far the best permanent stock
organization which has held the boards
i at this popular theater. Judging from
! the applause, it more than pleased the
I large audience. Herbert O'Conner ap
j peared in the title role, and was ably
assisted by Edna Cecil Daly as Mary
j Morsten. Hazel Arington as Bessie acted
very well, while J. C. Kline is also worthy
of mention for his cnaracteristlc makeup
and acting. Charles O'Connor as In
spector Jones portrayed the part In a
most pleasing manner, and the entire cast
received all the applause due the parts
assigned them. If plays of this descrip
tion are continued at the Majestic, it will
no doubt tax the capacity of the house.
At the Virgnla Theater this week a new
offering of pictures will be made. Miss
Helen Dodge offers a violin solo feature.
"The Fall of Troy" will be shown Easter
