NOTED ARTIST TO
RETURN TO STAGE
Will Appear With Beatriz.Mid
dleton Under Management
of John P. Slocum '
Great Seat Sale Expected for,
Tetrazzini Concerts When %
Office Opens Today 4
' In his efforts to get Beatriz Mlch
elena Middle ton back to the fold of
his managerial control John P. Slocum,
owner of "The Kissing Girl," ,thlnks hie
has finally won out. The pretty singer,
trho was formerly, a star 'under .his
management, but who married George
Middleton four years . ago'and left the
stage, hag agreed to continue her foot
light career under one cendition, and
this has been met by Slocum. The
latter has signed a contract with Fer
nando Michelena, the father and teach
er of Beatrix and Vera Michelena, and
proposes to star Beatrix and her father
in art opera, which he is going to. have
written for the twain. „. , ,
Says Slocum: "If. lean get Fernando
Michelena and his daughter under my
managerial banner I will have the
greatest lyrical duo In the country."
Slocum managed Richard Mansfield
for six "years, was the exploiter of the
ability of Marguertte Sylva, who now
is singing with* Mary Garden in Chi
cago, and has been a successful pro
ducer of plays and musical » comedies
for the last 10 years. His | offer to
Fernando Michelena is being considered
favorably by the noted tenor, whose
daughter. Beatrix, says that the ambi
tion, of her lif,e has been to appear with
her father in opera. The spectacle of
father and daughter appearing respect
ively in the tenor and soprano roles of
a light opera would be unique.
Fernando Michelena,, who says he
thinks he will accept Slocum's offer,
has not appeared on the operatic stage
for several years, though he has sung
in concerts frequently. His last ap
pearance was in New York recently,
when he sapg at a function given by
the Masons in their temple. At the
close of the program he was presented
with a, solid silver dinner set. :-. : V:
Local theater goers will remember
him as one of the greatest Fausts that
ever succumbed to the charms of a
SJ.ocum's offer to the two Is a long
term contract and the producer thinks
he has 'schemed his plot so well that
the husband in the case, George Middle
ton, the local clubman, can not object
to his wife's resumption of her stage
career with her own father. ,
Meanwhile Beatrix sings four per
formances of "The Kissing Girl" with
her old impresario; — three in this city,
beginning tomorrow night, and one in
The sale of seats for the Tetrazzini
concerts .begins this morning at Sher
man, Clay and Co.'s storer Manager
Greenbaum says that he expects the
biggest demand and the longest line
that have ever been in evidence in /San
Francisco when seats were exposed for
sale for a musical event. Tetrazzini
is a dicovery of San Francisco opera
goers, and it was on the strength of lo
cal enthusiasts that she rode s Co fame
and fortune at Covent garden and later
to Hammerstein at the Manhattan opera
house in New York. That she will be
given a royal welcome at Dreamland
pavilion next Monday night can not be
doubted. The second concert will be
given on the following Saturday after
noon and the final recital will be heard
Tuesday night, December 20. Paul
Steindorff will conduct the orchestra
which will support the great diva, and
Walter Oesterreicher, flutist, will ac
company Mme. Tetrazzini in the mad
scene from "Lucia."
It Is not likely that many theater
goers will remember Miss Dunlapwhen
she appears in Henry W. Savage's pro
duction of "Madame^X" at the Sa\oy
next week. Adeline Dunlap is playing
the role which-"Sarah Bernhardt has
said is one of the most trying parts she
The last time Miss Dunlap appeared
before a fun loving audience in San
Francisco was when ehe played 'the
sunburned girl in "The Col
lege "Widow." at the. Novelty theater.
From comedienne to tragedienne is
not such a long leap if one happens
to have a sense of humor, and Miss
Dunlap, according to report, is not de
void of the comedy instinct, even
though she plays, in "Madame X," one
of.the most taxing and tragic roles ever
contrived by a dramatist. .
An interesting episode in the play
ing of "Madame X" will take place in
Denver when, in January, Sarah Bern
hardt and Miss Dunlap cross each oth
er's trails. A special matinee of
\u25a0"Madame" X" will be given in Miss
Dunlap's home town in honor of Mme.
Bernhardt, who, through the 'courtesy
of Savage, has also included "Madame
X* in her repertoire this season. After
the performance the Denver actress and
hen associates will be the gtfests of
the "Divine Sarah."
There have been many "youngest
leading women" on the stage.= When
Maude Adams supported John Drew in
fhe comedy,. "The Butterfly," she was
said to be the 'most' youthful of all
American actresses in leading roles.
Eleanor Robson in her <|ay was also a
"youngest leading lady." So was
Maude Fealy. Marguerite Snow, Elsie
Janls, Marie Doro," Blllle Burke and, no
doubt, once upon a time, Lillian Russell,
Blanche Chapman and others. The lat
est aspirant for juvenile honors hap
pens to be Miss ISa St. Leon, who
comes next week to the Columbia the
Cor. Market, Eddy «nd Powell Streets. *:

; One of the most finished artiststhat
appear in San Francisco is 'Emillo de
Gorgoza,' and the fact that his. singing
is^regarded as a musical -asset in San
Francisco is sufficiently proved by his.
sale 'of tickets for his forthcoming,
concerts, which will be given at the
Columbia theater Sunday | afternoon.
December 11, and theSfollowin^r^Sun
day afternoon, December 18. v Green-,
baum, the local impresario, is authority
for the statement that De Gorgoza is
one of the most^ popular of visiting
artists. Certainly the bar 1 tone is \u25a0 one
of the best we have the opportunity of.
What is not generally known of De
Gorgoza is' that- he was born- In Amer
ica. If his publicity, promoters seek to
hide the fact it is merely because there
is a general presumption -tlfet a prophet
or a singer is not without honor' save
in his own country.:, De \u25a0 Gorgoza 1 was
born : .in Brooklyn, N. V.> His mother
was of aristocraiic genealogy ; but' be-"
fore Emilio had reached" the dlgnlty.bf
a year's growth he was taken to~Eu-'
rope, wherje he received his education.
A peculiar •; fact ? in the career 'of *De
Gorgoza* is that he has had many offers
to go on the operatic stage, ;.but has
never appeared in a Cost of grand opera
singers. ;~; ~ -

Hermione: You must get the dan-
druff off your head. Dandruff is a hair
destroyer; it' chokes the hair, kills It
and . causes It to fall out. Don't use
soap > for shampooing; soap leaves \u25a0 the
scalp dry and -hard, and streaks the
hair. I know of only one perfect sham-
poo, and that is canthrox.; All first-
class druggists sell it. Just dissolve a
teaspoonf ul of canthrox in a cup of hot
water; pour 'on the head a little a.t a
time and rub well — precisely as you
would with^any .. other shampoo;
rinse the hair and. -scalp thoroughly
with clean warm water. Canthrox re-
moves dandruff, and relieves, itching
scalp. It dries quickly and makea tha
hair soft.' bright and fluffy. For a hair
tonic, use qulnzoin— described In the
preceding paragraph. - v
