A few weeks ago I mentioned the mdden collapse of the proiected "Hall t| ""aine" season at the Adelphi'. and now h omes another announcement which says ittle for the attracting powers of the rinnxman as a dramatist.

In most cases the piano is placed a corner of the rpom far from the eaaht. Naturally there is no method of ingln'g the light close to the performer cept by the use of a lamp. Even when s latter Is placed on the top of the piano e light naturally does not benefit the rformer, as It acts as a glare to the es and cannot reach the music. This (Hculty is overcome by a Texas man by e use of a reflector, as shown In the lllusition. The reflector of the ordinary type pivoted to a very heavy base, on which e lamp is supported. By adjusting the Sector the lieht from.the iamD can be rected to any place d??frable.
