A large and enthusiastic audience
thronged the Mojiue theater last night

That the audience;, was pleased with
the program was I evidenced by-tht
applause that followed every number,
and twice the enthusiasm reached
Mich a pitch that the audience brolu
into cheers. - .. ' .
The band Is undoubtedly one ot tht
best in Europe. It is nof one of tli
brassy, blaiiiij; kind, hut is a liappj
combination of both band 'and orches
tral instruments', the effect produce'
being wonderfully rich, sweet am
melodious. In the frequent innidenta
t-olos that occurred throughout ' th
program each member proved him'scl.
to be a master of his iiislruiifnt. A
k conductor. Director livic Hoe.!Ti
had the band under p-.-iToet contro

Following a brief but spirited ad
dress of welcome by Dr. Castaf An

Then followed the overture from
"William Tell" in which the. re'il In

fect. The enthusiasm iin-reased with
each s.tccei ding 'number until finally
in the last 'movement of t!o medley.
"Old Comrades," th'j band burst, fnrih
..with Suva's "Stars and Stripes For
ever.". .-"The" thrill produced was" sp;f
taneous and the whole audi'mee lroke
into cheers while shouts of "I'lay it
again!" ca.-ue from all parts of the
house. In ?!rong contrast with this
nunvlvr followed .Wrick's.. "Death of
AastV and " 'Indsighling." As an
encore the band played a medley
which included "Dixie." Thh? evoked
another demonstration more noisy
titan the first.
Mine. MaMy Hoogberg of the royal
opera of Stockholm added a pleasing HJS
variety to the program by appearing
iwice. biie possesses a lull, clear
and lyrical sontwno- voice that com
pletely captivated the audience. " .The

The second part of the program
opened , with Wagner's triumphal
march of the gods from "Ilheingold."
The remainder of the numbers were
principally Swedish airs and national
hymns, including the famous "Bjorne

To Make the Tides Work.
Flans have often been made to de

most case's these have failed of com
mercial success. Xmv, however, , says

advanced to harness the power of the
tides 3n . the coast of Maine. -A' com

Transformation - Scene a Feature.:
One of the most prominent features of
Charles H.. Yale's "Everlasting Devil's
Auction,'' which is here Monday and,
by the way, a feature that is not now
presented by any other spectacular
organization, is the Transformation
scene. In former years a spectacular
I-enormance was not .considered com
plete without its final scene of trans- j
formation,, and fortunes, as in ths '
case of , the original "Black Crook," !
"The White Fawn," and later. in David'
Henderson's .show pieces, were spent '
in presenting these magnificent speci-'
mens of the scenic painters' art. Of
late years the promoters of spectacle
outside of Mr. Yale, have discarded
these effective finales to their per
formance possibly to save what they
consider an unnecessary expense. In
any event, the scene has been cut out
in the majority of fairy productions,
with the exception of the "Devil;s
Auction." .'Manager Yale, however.
uas eaeh year onerea ins patrons a
beautiful series of fit age pictures, and
ir this, the 2Cth edition, promises a
radical change from any thing hitherto
attempted In this line.". The new
transformation is entitled "Amor"
(Love) and is claimed to be one of if
not the handsomest mise-ensceues
ever, presented. , " ,

Claim to Have Best. It is easy
to claim that you have "the greatest,"
"the best" or-"the most stupendous"
show on earth ; v easy enough to find
adjectives of this description', and you
may even fool the people, once, but
you cart't fool themail the Ume,k A

managers -l of Richards & Pringle's

THE VICTIM OF DRINK.
Needs Orrine Treatment.
Drink first destroys ambition,
breaks up ties, of friendship; it kills
and ' buries love and eventually de
stroys the family life. .
Some of the best men in the world
have been victims, of" drink and if
there is not somcr jnember in your
family that is afflicted Vith this dis
ease, you arc indeed fortunate.
Drink cunningly destroys the will
power, and .while the drunkard wants
to do what , you' tell him, he wants a
thousand, times .more the drink that
he craves. .
Drunkenness is no longer consider
ed a crime; eminent scientists rind
physicians have a,grecd that it is a
disease and must-be treated as such.
The homo treatment that has been
used for a number of years, and is
highly successful, is Orrine. It Is
sold under a positive guarantee that
if it does not effect a cure your money
will be' refundea. - .
Orrine is in two forms. When de
siring to give secretly, purchase Or
rine Xo.l, and if the patient will vol
untarily take the treatment, Orrine
No. 2 should be given. The guarantee
is the same In either case. Orrine
costs but $1 per oox. Mailed in plain
sealed wrapper on receipt of price.
Write for free treatise on "Drunken
ness," mailed'-- in sealed envelope by
the Orrine company, Washington, D.
C, and in this chy by the Harper.
