George Hamlin I indeed a great I
artist and those who failed to bear
him at the Illlnola last evening miss
ed os of tie few opportunities for
hearing a master musician. Mr. Ham
lin, an American tenor, came under
the auspices of the Rock Island Mu
sical club and his recital was the
third one given this season. Miss Hel
en Waldo and Madame Frances Aida
being the other two artists that hare
been the dob's entertainers. The
fcoufte last night was fairly well filled
with club members, to whom the re
cital was complimentary, and with
Mr. HamJin appeared In a concert
program In the trl-cities several
years ago and since that time has
traveled and studied extensively
abroad and those who heard him on
the previous occasion and again last
night were struck with the wonder
ful Improvement in the quality and
manner of handling his voice. His
voice is a true tenor and there is a
smoothness and roundness of tone
that stamps him as a real artist.
ftO(,ft F.X.I. IH.
His technique Is very nearly per
fect and in fact It would be hard to
pick flaws in a voice such as was
heard last night. A delightful feat
ure of the program was the fact that
the songs were given In English with
the single exception of an encore
from the Italian opera "Cavalleria
Rustlcana." Me opened the program1 :
w ith "In Thee 1 Bear So Iear a ' Jensen, "Loch Lomond," old Scotch,

"Nymphs and Shepherds" by Pur- and to this group he graciously re

ber he responded with an encore sing-, Scotch, "Flower Rain" by Schneider

which honors were fairly even until
the last few rounds, Langford. suc
ceeded In reversing his defeat at Mc-
ey's hands Dec. 26 last. The bet
ting was 10 to 9 on McVey. The fight
opened at a fast pace. In the second
round Langford landed three heavy
rights on the body in a clinch, at
which McVey protested and the po
lice interfered, barring kidney
punches in the clinches. Langford
had somewhat the better of the first
few rounds and the betting veered
to 5 to 4 In his favor. Both men
put up a savage fight and the referee
was constantly engaged In separating
them. By clever sparring McVey
managed to keep his stronger adver
ssry off until after the 17th round.
when the furious pace began to tell
cn both. Langford was in the better
condition at the end, although not
good enough to land a knockout. The
spectators cheered the referee's deci
sion and were obviously delighted at
what they considered a hard and fair
ly fought battle.

The seven days preceding1 and the
seven days following the winter sol

from a table which sets forth that Hal
cyone, a princess who grieved bo deep

sent thither In pity In the form of
halcyon bird or kingfisher. According
to the legend, the halcyon bird bad

by the coin of the realm to win from
Thompson. Tommy is -working hard

in a three-mile run in addition to some
other training stunts.

AT THE ILLINOIS.
The big spectacular presentation of
Balfe's masterpiece announced for
next Sunday at the Illinois is the same
massive production which the Aborn
opera company made at the Boston
opera house last September, and which
proved one of the truly big successes
of last season, and is now announced
ad being "bigger, brighter and better
than ever." This particular produc
tion has proved the crowning effort
of the Messrs. Aborns' career as pro
ducers of grand opera in English. To
the lover of "music worth while" the
melodious quality of Balfe's score,
which contains such gems as "I
Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls,"
"The Heart Bowed Down," "Then
You'll Remember Me," etc., will ever
hold its charm, but in the present
spectacular form "The Bohemian
Girl takes on new life and makes a
strong appeal to all classes, for in ad
dition to the charm of its music, in
their effort for realism, Messrs. Aborn
now give us some of the thrills of mel
odrama, some of jthe best circus feat
ures ever witnessed outide of a tent,
real gypsies, horses, acrobats, etc. Par
ticular care has been given to the selec
tion of the principal singers and the
big chorus of this year's presentation.
AT THE EMPIRE.
For good and strong all-around bills.
the one which is being cast over the
footlights of the Empire theatre for
the first half of this week is a corker,
and should fill the theatre at every
performance. A snappy sketch, tilled
with humorous turns, a dancing team
that is a card, a cycle troupe that
proves a sensation, a character im
personator whose turn makes a hit
with the audience, and a pair of artis
tic skaters make up the personnel of
the bill. Rogers and Wiley, a black
face team, put on the dancing stunt.
Rogers' work in this line is exception
ally fine. He slides over a few steps
that are seldom equalled. Graham
and Randall, in the comedy dramatic
satire, "A Gay Old Boy," have some
thing really novel and refreshing. Gra
ham's makeups and impersonations
are classy. The sketch clones with
what he terms a "burlesque on a real '
blood and thunder melodrammer," j
and it is a scream. It ends up with 1
the U3ual crash and bang, characteris- j
tic of the melodrama. Mary Davis,
character impersonator, is somewhat
different, and delights with her sing- j
ing and with her delineation of a typi- j
cal gossipy woman. The A. Eheling :
troupe's bicycle act is replete with !
sensational performances. Harrah &
Co. open tbe bill with their skating act.
Through the ntire show, the audi
ence is ebullient with pleasure. Two j
new films or motion pictures are
AT THE GRAND.
There are many angles and points
from which Rostand's poetical fan
tasy of the barnyard, "Chantecler,"
to be presented at the Grand, Dav-
enport, tonight, may be viewed, and j
from all of them there is pleasure to '
be derived for the brain and the '
senses. In the production Itself ;
there is created no little atmosphere. ;
Much of this atmosphere is kindled '
by Maude Adams, herself, even be-1
fore the first scene Is unfolded. In
a prelude that is beautifully delivered .
by the actress before the curtain, she !
explains the absence of all human be-i
ings from the scene and asks the
audience to view the play as through
a magnifying glass. Once the cur
tain ascends one really feels as if he
were viewing the scene through a
glass. Every lay object is of im
mense proportions. The effect gain
ed by exaggerating to many times
their nomal size objects such as
trees, the dog kennel, a fence and
gate, a basket, a scarecrow and other
inanimate things seen in a farmyard
and in the woods make plausible the
equally exaggerated size of the beasts,
birds, reptiles and fowl interpreted by
human actors and the illusion is
startling and remarkable. When the
stately Chantecler struts upon the
scene chanting his song to the sun he
does not appear to be more than half
the size of Miss Adams. The vari
colored hues of the plumage of the
birds and fowl form a riot of color
that is bewitching and the elaborate
costumes representing these birds and
animals are carried out w-ith great
perfection of detail. The play carries
the message of the nobility of work,
and there can scarcely be two opin
ions of its literary value. Poetical,
Imaginative and original in theme,
philosophical in argument and pun
gently witty and satirical in dialogue,
the play is undoubtedly the crowning
effort of the genius who wrote
"L'Aifflou" and "Cyrano de Ber-gtrac."
