Said a man, speaking of a long and ex
citing political contest in which he was
specially concerned: "I conld not have en
dured it if everything had not been all right
st home." In that home vtas a wife who,
during those trying weeks, gave herself en
tirely to this one work. 2To matter at what
irregular hours her husband came home she
met him enquestioningly with warm, sub
stantia meals and with every attention to
his comfort. She held herself ready to enter
Eympathizingly and heartily into everything
he chose to tell her concerning the cam
paign, and if his mood was a silent one she
held her peace and attended to his needs.
Halt of her effort and self-sacrifice, no doubt,
he never noticed or appreciated, but it sur
rounded him with such an atmosphere of
comfort and peace that, however trying the
day, he felt that he had a haven of reluge.
Above all he felt that he could bear defeat.
It is this feeling of ability to bear defeat
which must be carried into business and
politics before they are kept pure. The
man who feels that life and happiness de
pend on his success is not apt to hesitate
long before he adopts dishonest means to
DEARER EVERY DAY.
They said I would cease to love her
When her freshness showed decay:
They were wrong, for as tlie river
Wears its channel more away.
Deeper crew my love, and clearer
Seemed her beauties in display.
Bhe grew older, she grew dearer
Dearer c ery day.
Had I loved her for her beauty.
Had lier heart been Mmply clay.
Then might mine bare ceased its worship;
I5ut lier truth's resplendent ray
Filled my soul and drew me nearer
To the fount where sweetness lay.
Still the older, still the dearer
Dearer every day.
Age has laid its hand upon her
Do I realize it? Nay.
Bit youth's bloom my heart remembers
Vears her faithfulness portray.
And it shall be mino to cheer her,
So her winter shall be May.
Etill the older, still the dearer
Dearer every day.

The above are the theatrical attractions for
The two performances in which Madam Mod
jeska and Mr. Booth figured yesterday at the
Grand Opera House are adverted to critically
on the fourth page of this issne.
Maxageb Rddolph AEONSOir supplies the
first operatic novelty of the season at the
Grand Opera House Monday evening, October
14, in the production of "The Brigands," which
achieved a record of 123 performances at the
New York Casino and four weeks In Boston,
where the company is atpresent The success
in both of the above cities is the most pro
nounced ever known In the history of this
management. This event will prove to be one
of more than usual interest, as Mr. Aronson
has established a record for comic opera pro
ductions of tuch a high standard that the
mere mention of the fact that he is to present
a new opera in this city is always hailed with
delight by our theater-goers. The production
of "The Brigands" is sure to prove quite a
sensation, as it is an entirely new style of
operatic production. The music ot the
opera is by Jacques Offenbach, and a
few interpolations by Mr. Gustavo Kerker,
which are said to have made distinct hits.
The musical numbers which have proven most
successful in both cities, are a solo from Miss
Lillian Russell, "A Brigand's Daughter am I;"
a song and dance lor Miss Fanny Rice, "A
Farmer Boy," a chorus for men, "Hail to the
Brigand Chief," and the ensemble and the
famous fivo act finale, which has never failed
to receive from three to four encores at every
performance. In the second act a duet and
chorus for Miss Lillian Russell and Miss Fanny
Rice, known as the "Kiss Duet," is a particu
larly taking musical number. A charming
musical conceit is the entrance song anu
chorus for Miss Isabella Urquhart, "A Spanish
Princess:" a tenor solo for Mr. Henry Hallam,
"It is Different When Both Love?' new topical
song for Mr. Fred Solomon, "I Got It;" then
the finale or the second and third acts and
many more musical numbers that are sure to
become as popular in this city as they have in
New York and Boston. The cast is the origi
nal one and includes some of the most popular
artists of the comic opera stage and is as fol
lows: Lillian Russell, Fanny Rice, Isabella
Urquhart, Anna O'Keefe, Delia Stacey. Laura
Russell and the Messrs. Fred Solomon, George
Olmi. Henrv Hallam. Richard Carroll. Max
Lube, Henry Leoni, A. W. Tarns and others.
The production is given under the direction of
Mr. Max Freeman and Musical Director Gus
"The Stilt, Alarm," that tremendous ex
ample of modern melodrama, Is the dramatic
conflagration at the Bijou Theater this week.
No melodrama that comes to Pittsburg is more
popular with the masses. The proof of this
may be seen at the box office on the advance
sale chart. Harry Lacy comes with the play.
He began his season at the Grand Opera
House, New York, and his audiences were of
immense proportions. The advance sale now
indicates that he will, as on former occasions,
fill the cozy Bijou to everflowmg. Some clever
people are noticed among the list of players
and it is promised that the general equipments
of the company will be on a grander scale
than were seen on its last visit here. The mag
nificent trained horses, the new fire engine and
the sensational climaxes are all ready as usual.
So much has already been saidjin these columns
about Mr. Joseph Arthur's play that the read
ers of The Dispatch are well acquainted with
its merits. Lacy is especially fitted for the
part, and his conception of it needs no com
ment. He is a young and handsome fellow,
bright and intelligent, and has worked hard
and patiently to acquire his present position as
one of our formost leading men. The splendid
car, constructed especially for this comoany,
will arrive on the B. &. O. early Monday morn
ing. It will require the services of some 20 ex
tra men to place the scenery, properties and fire
engine in position for Monday night.
The announcement of the return of the ex
cellent comedy, "A Possible Case," that in
genious and original skit of Sydney Rosenfeld's,
will be hailed with delight by all lovers of
pure, clean comedy and legitimate acting. It
will be presented at the Bijou Theater the
week commencing Monday, October 14, by the
Union Square Theater Company, under the
management of J. M. Hill. Some changes
have been made in the cast, but all tending to
make the company stronger than last year.
Sir. M. A. Kennedy remains in his artistic and
luminous creation of the central figure of the
play, OKo Brtnkerhoff. The new people are
Charles Dickson, formerly of the New York
Lyceum Company and recently seen here in
some clever work in "The Wife." Belle and
Herbert Dickey, also of the Lyceum stock and
last seen here in support of E. H. Sothern, in
important roles in "Lord Chumley. Helen
Russell, formerly leading lady at Wallack's
and also with Arthur Reban. Mr. Hill claims
it is the strongest company he ever sent out of
New York. The rest of the cast arc equally
capable If not as well-known. A rare treat is
in store for the patrons of the Bijou. Re
served seats will be on sale at the box office
At Harris' Theater another week of comic
opera wfll bo given by the Wilbur Opera Com
pany. That they succeeded in pleasing the
people last week is proven positively by the
fact that they played to packed houses at each
of the 12 performances. MissSnsie Kirwiuis
in good voice, and sings as sweetly as she did In
the days of her early triumphs, when Fred
Parke ran Library Hall. The chorus is a fair
one, being made of young people with pretty
faces and clear, strong voices. The costnmes
are rich and gaudy. The intricate marches
which generally mix up the average chorus
crowd of Pittsburg beauties are executed by
the "Wilbur Girls'' In true military style with
out a mistake. The company is well supplied
with clever comedians who know how to crack
fan without becoming vulgar. The repertoire
for the week is as follows: Monday, "Nanon:"
Tuesday, "1 he Two Vagabonds;" Wednesday,
"The Beggar.Student;" Thursday, "Mascotte;"
Friday, '"The Bohemian Girl?' Saturday,
"Princess of Trebizonde."
Miss Helen Babet is an English actress of
considerable fame on the other side ot the At
lantic. Last season she made a tour of tbo
country playing "A Woman's Stratagem" with
considerable success. Now Miss Barry will ap
pear at the Grand Opera House on Monday in
anew play written especially for her by T.
Malcolm Watson, entitled "Love ana Liberty."
It is a romantic pla, strong in the emotional
element, and bu'lt upon a plot relating mainly
to the Franco-German war. Miss Barry is said
to be well suited m her Dart, and several critics
have praised her acting highly. She has the
support of such excellent actors as Ralph Del
more, Clarence Hand) side, W. B. Arnold and
others. The scenery for the production Is
carried by the company, and is said to be very
handsome. On Tuesday evening "A Woman's
Stratagem," which is spoken of as a charming
comedy in the best sense of the word, will be
given, and It will be repeated on Friday and
the Saturday matinee.
From week to week the tide of laughter rolls
throug'i the Academy of Music without any
great amount of change. This week Gus
Hill's World of Novelties will provide the ex
cuse for merriment. It will be a good excuse
probably, for the programme is all new, and
must ba well interpreted by such clever people
as C. W. Williams, Billy Carter, Charles Harris,
Nnttle Walters, Phil and Chrissie Sheridan,
Lottie Gllson and Gus Hill.

Frohmak's Lyceum Theater Compant

Dickson, who has joined the forces of J. M.
Hill, and plays the light comedy role in "A
Possible Case." His excellent work in the role
of the correspondent in "Held by the Enemy'
and more recently "The Wife," will be pleas
antly remembered in this city. He now plays
the role formerly assumed by Bob Billiard.
Stdnet Roseneeld, tho author of "A
Possible Case," says that Helen Russell, who
now plays the role of Violet Mendoza, is the
best exponent of the part of any who have
played in it. She seems to have struck a happy
medium between the two extremes of Genevieve
Lytton and Georgie Drew Barrymore. Pitts
burg audiences will have a chance to judge of
Miss Russell's abilities at the Bijou Theater in
the week of October 14.
M. A. Kennedy, the well-know comedian of
"A Possible Case," is winning even more praise
from the critics this season than ever before.
A writer on the Albany Times says: "Comedy
will never die with Jefferson and Florence as
long as Kennedy is on the stage. He is tho late
John T. Raymond and Ben Maginley rolled
into one in a personality of his own." Another
critic compares him more than favorably with
W, H. Crane, and still another classes his
methods ot naturalness with Den Thompson.

Adonis Diiey's art may not be high or
important, says Le Chat Noir, but he can cast
a heart-healing glow into tho shadows that

shatter care with the warmth of legitimate

more. They are but frivolous. light, useless

The No w York TTorlrf labels Steele Mackaye's
new play, 'An Arrant Knave," one of the best
comedies ever written, and says that it places
its ao thor at the head of American playwrights
beyond all peradventure. The dramatic opin
ions of the World are Bnaky as a rule, so per
haps this one is strained, but Mackaye is un
doubtedly a great writer, and no person who
has watched his work would be surprised if ho
should some day make just such a play as the
World man describes. "An Arrant Knave,"
which is the property of Stuart Robson, had its
first production In Chicago on Monday night,

A LOW London paper, called the Wasp, not
long ago libeled Florence St. John in a most
shameful manner, says the New York Mirror.
Elborougb, the proprietor, was promptly prose
cuted. He had no defense or justification to
offer for the outrage and was compelled to
throw himself on the mercy of Miss St. John
and the Court.
The actress was satisfied to let Elborough off
with a public acknowledgement of the falsity
of his publication, an humble apology to her in
open court, the payment of costs of the pro
ceedings and a giftof $250 to the Actors' Benev
olent Fund. The Court was moved to let the
wretch go after these humiliations.
"Some attention, I suppose," says Nym
Crinkle in the -Ifirror, "might bo given to a
form of hallucination which may be called
retrospective. It shows itself in the tendency
to idealize and exaggerate that which is past.
Two or three years ago Lester Wallack was
not as great an actor as he is to-day. Mr.
Burton grew after death at a prodigious rate.
Adelaide Neilson, who was in no sense a great
actress, and not acconnted great by cotem
poraneous opinion, is now spoken of with
something like awe. It is the sime way with
plays and companies. We continually hear of
the unapproachable excellence of this and that
stock company of the past, and continually
forcet that it is the intervening time that has
softened and mellowed everything."
"I noticed the other evening," says tho mu
sical critic of Le Chat JToir, "in the "Pearl of
Pekln,' a remarkably clever bit of work by
.Kerker, which would interest any musician, on
account of its ingennity. It is in the 'Chop
Sticks Polka,' where the xylophone plays a
simple melodic figure, over and over again,
while all about It, above and oclow, is woven a
woof ot vocal and instrumental designs,totally
Independent andyct most pleasing. Theoretic
ally this might perhaps be termed a Passacaglia
in a middlo voice. The Passacaglia being a
constantly reiterated bass, upon which a super
structure is built of constantly varying pro
gressions. Mr. Kerker has thus given to us an
other of thoso proofs, which happily are be
coming more and more lrequent, that a piece
may be tuneful and well written, catchy and

No better evidence as to the superiority of
the Washburn guitars over all other makes
conld be required than the enormous de
mand for these elegant instruments. The
ready sale of the Washburns has surpassed
the most sanguine expectations of the manu
facturer, and it is only with the greatest ef
fort that the supply can be kept up with the
demand. In viev of this fact H. Kleber &
Bro., who are the exclusive agents lor the
Washburn instruments, a few months ago
placed an order for 160 guitars. This lot has
just been received, and can be seen at Kle
ber's Music Store, No. 606 Wood street
The scale of the "Washburn, from the
smallest three-quarter to that of tho grand
concert size, is guaranteed absolutely cor.
rect. The manufacturers deeming this of
great importance, being the foundation of
the whole instrument, have perfected at
much expense and labor an invention where
by the scale of every one is made an exact
duplicate of its predecessor, no variation or
exception being possible. The neck, also
an important feature, is constructed upon
the same plan and is identical, one with
nHother.and made after such a perfect model
that all possess that pleasant feeling in the
hands of a performer so much desired. The
tone of the Washburn is rich, full and mel
low, at the same time powerful without
harshness. The-finish is the finest of French
polish, being brilliant and lasting, the inlay
ing rich and elepant.
As the Washburn guitars are made in 25
different styles, all tastes can easily be
suited; the low prices bring them within
the reach ot everybody. Special rates to
clubs and to the profession.

THE MUSIC WDRLD.
THE CARNEGIE ORGAN.
An Instrument Ordered for the AHenbenj
Music Hall An Opportnnlty for Orgnn
KccilnU InaagurntlnB the Hall- Speci
fications of the Inurnment.
All who chanced to read in this column
last week the earnest plea for a complete
and well-balanced organ to be bnilt in Car
negie Musio Hall, Allegheny, will compre
hend with what pleasure it is now an
nounced that the contract for jnst such an
instrument was let last Thursday to
the Roosevelt firm, this country's fore
most builders. By securing an extension of
time unon another large instrument, the firm
is able to contract to have this organ finished
by January 4, the previonslnability to do which
was the only thing that prevented tho deal from
being made some weeks ago.
Mr. Elbert, the representative who figured for
the contract, declares himself to be delighted
with the conditions afforded bv the new hall for
building an organ that shall be in the highest
degree effective both to ear and to eye. The
blank wall behind the stage was so left with
this object in view; and the organ will not only
complete the architectural effect of the hall,
but will also have absolutely no impediments in
the way of tonal perfection. Such conditions
are rarely provided for the builder.
Carnegie Hall, by the way, is in all particu
lars, a remarkably well-planned auditorium.
Its dimensions are 69 feet wide by 115 feet long
in the clear, and 39 feet from floor to apex of
the arched celling. On the main floor 7C8 per
sons will be accommodated in permanent seats
of unusual width over 19 Inches and with
plenty of room between the rows.
The galleries running around three
sides entend the audience capacity to 1,100
seats. The stage, which is in three tiers or
steps, has a total area of about 23x4S feet, capa
ble of accommodating (with the organ occupy
ing most of the highest platform) over 200 per
formers. The location on the ground floor, the
extraordinary number of exits, the convenient
appointments of dressing rooms stage doors,
etc. are among the many points that redound
to the credit of the builders.
The organ specified will stand npon a plat
form 6 feet 8 inches above the main floor, and
will have these as its greatest dimensions: 42
feet wide, 32 feet high and 10 feet deep (not in
cluding keyboard and bench). Its case is to be
of oak, the finish and pipe decorations to be
elaborate and harmonious with the whole
Interior of the halL No decision has yet been
made as between water and electricity as the
motive power for the bellows.
It is expected that in the inaugural cere
monies of the library and hall that one distinct
session, afternoon or evening, will bo wholly
devoted to an organ recital an eminently
proper way of emphasizing the Importance of
the fact that this community will then possess
its first complete organ in a public place avail
able for recital and general concert use That
occasion will be a new birth of the whole de
partment of organ music in our midst, a depart
ment than which as pointed out last week no
other is in greater need of reformation. The
fnli specifications for this important instru
ment are as follows:

"Les Brigands," which was seen at the New

will soon be here, has lately been brought out
in London. It appears, from communications
recently made by him to the press, that his
English adaptation of "Les Brigands" was
written with the sole object of seenring the
English copyright of the opera, and was nut In
tended by htm for public performance. It has
proved as successful, however, in the British
metropolis as in ours, thanks to the pretty
music and an elaborate mise-en-scene.
Since the proposed celebrations of Rubin

be a competition of two prizes of 2,500 rubles

other to the most successful pianist; .both may
be won by the same person. The first contest
will take place at Bt. Petersburg in 1890. the
second at Berlin in 1695, the third at Vienna In

The contract between the Exposition So
ciety and tho Great Western Band expired
last evening and the managers of the big show,

of Hew York, led by Fred Inness.the well
known trombone virtuoso. The newcomers,
some 40 or 45 men, aro already here, having
come on from the West, where they have been
playing at the Minneapolis Exposition. It is
rumored quietly that the great and only Gil
more and bis band are to be here for the last
two or three days of the Exposition. The
Great Western Band shonld not be permitted
to close this brilliant engagement without a
full and frank acknowledgement that for the
last few weeks Director Weis has swung his

ART MATTERS IN THE CITY.
A poeteait of a child, by Mr. Charles Walz,
is on exhibition at Boyd's.
A fine photogravnra of Edwin Long's pict
ure, "Diana or Christ," may be seen at Gilles
pie's. Two small landscape studies in water colon,

Mb. Frank C. Peneold, of Buffalo, is one
of the few American artists who have sold
pictures to the French Government; bis paint
ing. "Sad News." which was exhibited at the
Paris Salon this year, having been purchased
for the National Museum.
The sketches which Mr. H. S. Stevenson has
brought home with him this yearare among
the best work that be has ever shown. They
are more than usually complete in detail, and
exhibit a greater degree of artistic feeling. In
several instances he has been particularly for
tunate in his choice of subjects.
Dehse crowds have thronged the Exposition
galleries during the week, the attendance in
the evenings being such that the rooms would
bold no more, and progression from place to
place became a matter of some difficulty.
Quite a number of pictnres have been sold,
and Manager Johns Intends to push the sale of
others, as he desires that the gallery should aid
in extending Pittsburg's reputation as an art
center. Mr. Johns is authority for the
statement that the galleries are ex
celled by few in the country in
point of size, and also that we have now held
a larger exhibition of pictures than has been
shown in any Western city, not excepting the
fine exhibits at Chicago. The large skylights
will be pnt in place in time for any future dis
plays, and the walls which are now painted,
will be draped with silk plush. It is probable
that hereafter many exhibitions will be held in
addition to tho annual display In connection
with the Exposition. Efforts will be made to
secure the exhibition ot special collections of
fine art works, such as those of Verestchagin.
Another feature will be the holding of loan ex
hibitions at which, of course, no pictures will
be for sale, but they will serve to convey a
clear Idea of the number and character of the
art works held In this city, rlow that we have
a gallery of the most approved construction,
and larger than -that of the Philadelphia
Academy of Fine Arts, we are not likely to be
much at a loss to find use for it.
The walls of the Gillespie gallery are cov
ered with fine paintings by foreign artists.
They are brought here by Mr. M. Bleiman, of
Broadway, New York, who not long since vis
ited this city with a collection of fine art works,
for the major portion of which be succeeded in
finding purchasers here. The list of pictures
shown comprises some by very ceieDrated
painters, and. as In most collections, there are
some works which are below the usual standard
of the men whose names they bear. As a name
of very high standing may be mentioned that
of Frayon, and the work by him, "After the
Storm,'' is certainly a very pleasant picture.
The subject is a well composed landscape, with
cattle in the foreground and the sky dark with
clouds. An ideal head, by P. de Katow, a pupil
of Henner, bears evidence that the painter has
closely followed the teaching of that master.
"Bound to be a Sailor," by William Feron,
shows the figure ot a young boy,
fairly well executed, but relieved against
a sky that is nothing but a mere daub of paint.
"An Italian Family," by Adrien Moreau, is a
well-composed and broadly-handled work.
Ane f aitnxui unaraian, oy .urj;ei.o, ui re
garded as a fine work, andlt is certainly artistic
in composition. Two pictures of home life by
Haag are both pleasant works. There Is some
very faulty drawing in the "Oft Told Story,"
by Edouard Rlchter, and it will scarcelyadd
anything to that artist's reputation. "Hun
garian Horses," by Piotrowski. is a strong pic
ture, and "Waiting for a Bite," by E. Giroux,
Is a fairly good example of the impressionist
style of painting. There are small examples of
Kossean. Schreyer and Perrault. a fine work
by E. Berne-Bellecour and a fair one by A.
Roestel. The finest picture in the collection is
unquestionably "The Musical Rehearsal," by
Prof. Carl Hesffer, of the Munich Academy,
and the work for which the most is claimed
with thA lAftnt. r9nn fsanlctnre of a ewe and
lamb by Eugene Vesheckhoven. Two pictures
of Venetian canals by Rubens Santaro are
very pleasing; and the landscape with cattle by
U. Wintz is fairly good. Altogether this col
lection is very Interesting and those who value
an opportunity of Inspecting fine paintings
will do well to see it.
It is safe to say that no finer collection of"oil
paintings has ever been brought to this city
than is at present being shown at Boyd's by
Mr. D. A. Mathews, ot New York. Considering
'its size, the collection is a most excellently as
sorted one, consisting of representative works
by various painters, including a number of
masterpieces, and without a poor or weak work
on the list 'Lake Nemi," by Oorot, a nude fe
male figure by Henne, and "Sheep at Pasture,"
by Van Marcke, are good examples of pictures
by men who each possesed a strong individu
ality and a method of working peculiar to him
self. "The Watering Place."a landscape with
cattle, by Frederich Joban Voltz,ls a fine work
in which the animals shown are drawn by a
master's hand. The "Return of the FlocS" is a
very strong work by Charles Jacque. and a
wood scene by Diszisa splendid example of
that artltt's rich coloring and bold composition,
in which his free style of basiling siows to
good advantage. ' ''Watching Grandma," by
Adolph Echtler, and "Tbe'Reverle." by Menz
zler, are both fine works, the last mentioned
in particular being an especially fine composi
tion and of very pleasing color. "The Sisters."
by AdoTphe Piot, a pupil of Cogniet,is very
fine, and a study ot roses by the same artist Is
maeniflcently handled. "Palermo, Sicily," by
F. R. Unterberger, is also a very clever worlc.
A picture by A. Scbenck. showing a number of
sheep canght In a driving snowstorm, is en
titled "Sheep in Distress." The effects of cold
and driving snow are rendered in a manner
that is above criticism. A study of still-llto
entitled "Objects of Art," by Blaise JJesgoffe,
is a beautiful little work both in color and exe
cution. Ferbaostbetwo bestandmost finely fin
ished works in the collection are "Between Two
Fires,'' by Louis Jlminez. and "The Circas
sian Slave," by J L. Gerome. The
former is a splendid composition elaborately
worked out in detail and remarkably true to
nature in its coloring and texture. In the work
by Gerome the interest centers in the nude
figure of the female slave exposed tor sale, and
It is here that the touch of the master's band

daring which time his collection of paintings
will certainly prove a center of attraction to
all lovers of the fine arts.

There's a rich man over in England whose
home is in Connecticnt; he can't return to it
and still he is no fugitive from justice. He
went to Albion's isle several years ago, but
