truo sense of tho word. It was a
suooess from beginning to end, every
member being reoeived with rounds
of applause, whioh plainly showed
how each and every seleotion was ap
preciated by tho audienoe.

The programme consisted of veri
table gems, each ecleotion seeming
prettier than tho other. In fact, it
would not bo an easy task to decide
which was the prettiest and most tak
ing. Miss Laura Burnham, tho prima
dona of the company, is unquestion
ably a giited singer, bhe possesses a
fine soprano voice which she uses with
Mons. Fred Rucquoy, the flute so
loist, was very good, in fact, one of
the best evor heard in this city.
The violoncello solos of Mr. Arthur
Laseur were simply grand and espe
cially tho valse movement by Servias.
On being reoalled Mr. Laseur gavo a
sumblime rendition of Sohuman's beau
Beriot's great "Fantaisio Brilliante"
was played mnst cxcellontly by Mr.
Louis Kapp, tbo leader of the company.
Mr. Kapp displayed a wonderful tech
uiohe and brought out the beauties oi
Berot's composition charmingly. For
an encore bo played a pretty little se
lection from Auber's "Massaniella,"
arranged by himself.
The selections by the club were
grand and the ensemble the most su
perb over heard in Galveston; in faot
they wero tho deoided features of the
concert. The shading was beautiful,
and espeoially the piamsimo passages,
were chaming. Delibes' "Intermezza"
was delightful; also the "Minuete"
from tho Haydn symphony in G
minor. One of tho most interesting
orchestral features was the rendition
of the celebratod and muoh talkod of
'Intermezza" from Maecagni, tho
young Italian composer's maiden oper
atio composition, "Cavalliora Rusti
cana." Tbo piece was a novelty to a Gal
vsston audience and judging by the
way it was received it wa3 heartily
enjoyed by all present. The compo
sition and especially tho in'roduction
remind one very muoh of Wagner and
the Wagnerian sohool.
Tho artists as well as the audienoe
were under a decided disadvantage,
the hall not being heatod, but not
withstanding the cool temperature,
not a single one of tho audience left
before tho ooncort was over, whioh
speaks for itself as to the many merits
of tho company.
Tho club will leave today for Hous
ton where they will appear tonight."
This club will ontertain a Waoo
audienco at the Philo club rooms to
morrow (Friday) night.
