HUGH ANDERSON OPERATIC CONCERT COMPANY It is .wonderful how the leading singers are coming into Chautauqua work. Our Chautauqua will get some of them, this year when the Hugh Anderson Operatic and Coywt Company appears. Mr. Anderson has been the principal bass in a half dozen grand opera companies, including the Ahorn Company of New Yorjt and the Metropolitan Company of Chicago, and has a repertoire of twenty-two Grand Operas in English, Italian, German and French eleven Light Operas and eighteen oratorios and cantattas. He has a great company with him. Christian Matliisen is the tenor, and his voice is high with great power and beauty. His greatest success perhaps has been as "Lionel" in "Martlla," and that is the part in which we will hear him. The soprano is Miss Blanche Gardner, who made her reputation in ..Chicago, a lady of charm ing personality and exquisite voice. Miss Esther Muenstermann has a beautiful rich contAlto voice and combines interpretative ability with a pleasing stage presence and an authoritative style. The quartette receives wonderful support through the sympathetic accompaniments of Miss Bessie McAllister, a soloist of exceptional talent. dr'iglited It Is against the law fo a child un der 15 years to use or discharge any kidd of tire arm or_to carry the same without the consent of the parent or guardian and it is unlawful for the parent or guardian to permit the child to us or carry any loaded lire arm, within the platted jjortion of any city or within one mile of it and the penalty is a line not exceeding $50 It is against the law tot use any air gun in the state and the tine for do ing so is not to exceed $100. The general opinion prevails that it is against the law to sell air guns and that if they can be got they can be used without violating any law. The law is otherwise. This mistaken opin ion is why I give this notice to par ents. The use of firearms and air guns in Canton must be stopped and after this notice is published the police de partment will be instructed to cause prosecutions to be made in every case of tbe violation of this law.
