V gifted player, J. H. Stoddart, as Lach-
j an Campbell, comes to tho Salt Lake
; theatre, Monday, Tuesday and Wed-

an exposition in four acts of somo of

gagement. Reuben Fax, who has
been identified with the leading come
dy role, Archibald MeKlttriek, tho vil
lage postman, continues with the com
pany, as do many others who will bo
remembered from previous indenta
tions. Tho scenery is painted from
sketches of tho exact localities, in
cluding views of tho interior and ex
terior of Campbell's cottage and the
glens of Drumtochty.
When J. H. Stoddart first appeared
as Lachlan Campbell in "The Bonnie
Brier Bush," he won high and un
grudged praise as did the piny. Alan
Dale, whoso caustic pen has made
many an artist smart, said in tho Now
York Journal: "I don't suppose thorp
is another living actor who could do
such marvelous work as Mr. Stod
dart does as Lachlan Campbell in
'Tho Bonnie Brier Bush.' It is reallv
quite wonderful. Nobody can afford
to miss seeing this actor."
Mr. Stoddart announces this as his
farewell tour in this very successful
play, which makes this tho Inst oi
portunlty to see him in a character
that will live in the memory of theatre-goers
for many years.
Tho setting of tho "first part," with
the popular West's Minstrels this sea
son, is spoken of with more than the
usual admiration given this feature
of a minstrel programme, The set
ting is declared to bo quite elaborate,
the colors cerise and gold, harmon
izing wonderfully in tho general ef
fect. It is also claimed, and admitted
on all sides, that Manager Ricaby has
outdone all his former efforts in the
organizing of a company and putting
together an entertainment that Is
considered quite remarkable for its
intrinsic merit and artistic thorough
ness. With constant attention to the
wants of his patrons, and tho progres
sive and liberal management always
displayed by Manager Ricaby, lt Is
not to be wondered at, that tho name
of West minstrels is always accepted
as a positive guarantee to tho lovers
of minstrelsy tho country over. The
principal comedians this season, are:
Tom Mack, Geo. S. Wade, McDovltt
& Kelly and hosts of others, whose
names stand for tho best In minstrel
sy. A special feature. Is tho recent
engagement of Frederick V. Bowers,
tho famous singer and author of "Be
cause" and "Always," and many other
popular songs. Mr. Bowers will pro
sent his great scenic singing sensa
tion, which was for 20 weeks tho star
feature of Kiralfy's great Louisiana
Purchase spectacle at tho St. Louis
Fair, will bo presented oro at Salt
Lake Theatro on Thursday afternoon
and night. A twenty-flvo cent school
matlneo on Thursday will bo a new
Tho question has often been asked
as to what It Is that makes tho min
strel form of entertainment appeal so
strongly to all classes of theater-goers
and has established lt as tho most
popular of all Indoor classes of
amusement and recreation. Perhaps
the answer Is not hard to givo.
Nothing is witnessed In a reputable
up-to-date minstrel performance, but
what appeals to tho oyo, car and fan
cy. Fun, frolic and fantasy, music
and mimicry aro tho component parts
of a first-class minstrel performance.
Tho time spent in witnessing one of
theso popular entortainmonts is a
bettor investment for health and hap
piness than could bo acquired in the
money and timo given for a half doz
en visits from tho doctor or in a bar
rel of medicine. Tho oyo is pleased
at tho sight of tho merry black faces,
tho rich costumes, tho elegant fur
nishings and tho olaborato appoint
ments of tho first part. The ear is
tickled and one's sense of humor Is
aroused at the bright wit, repartee
and jokes of tho clever comedians.
Laughter, wonder and surprise follow
in quick succession In witnessing tho
many individual specialties and col
lective features presented by tho dif
ferent artists comprising tho mem
bership of a llrst-class company.
-no gicat feature this season whle.i
Manager Ilicaby offers his patrons is
no less than Frederick V. Bowers, tho
famous author of "Becauso" and "Al
ways" and many other world famous
songs. It Is safo to say that there
are very few pianos in America that
has not ono or more of Mr. Bowers
songs on It. This great singer and
author was for 2G weeks tho star fea
ture of Kiralfy's great Louisiana Pur
chnso spectacle at the St. Louis Fair.
Melba has a positive disllko for In
terviewers. Sho is never discourteous
or Imperious toward nn intorvlowor
who is sent by his paper In quest of
a stoiy, but sho evades, In a polite
way, tho scribes who nssall her when
ever sho can. Sho tolls a
story of ono, a bright chap,
of quick wit and lordly ways,
who had insistently pursued hor
while In New York by mall and mes
senger and pcrspnnl application, for
an interview on her life. Ho was re
ally mi engaging fellow, hut sho had
not found the time to toll him or hor
llfo, as her hours wore taken nn in
studying tho roles of a number of
characters sho was to sing during tho
grand oporn season then begun. Aftor
a hard day's work, lato ono afternoon,
sho was about to leave her hotel for
a drlvo through Central Park, when
sho met tho reporter near tho exit.
He was beaming nnd unctions In
gioetlng, and said, as ho drew a nolo
book from his pocket: "Ah, Madaino,
a propitious moment, now toll mo tho
story of your life, please."
"I was born In Australia. Tho most
alarming thing that ever liapponcd to
mo was, when a girl, I stepped on a
harmless snake In a gnnlon In Mel
bourne. That covers everything of
thrilling interest In my life." Mel

Next day she read an oloquent col

Sho was radiant In conversation and
