There will h« no performance In the

laat performance.
"Fatl«t" for the last Tim'.
The last opportunity to see "Fault" at
the Third Avenue theater is tonight, and
thuae who have not seen It should cer
tainly attend tonight. It Is superbly
played by the Hoamer-Itoas company and
tnagnlllcrntly staged It I* safe to say
that never hu "Faust" been better staged
In this city than !t la at the Third Avenue
thaater. The scenic and electrical effect*
are superb. Albert Hosmer as Mcphlsto
and Harriet Roes as Marguerite render
their lines with rare Intelligence, ar.d have
certainly ma le a deep and lasting Impres
sion here. Their supporting company la
also excellent.
In the auditorium a clever performance
Is also (riven, a specialty programme. The
Hl* brothers, Berry and Billy, are great
favcrltea. The coster songs of Berry have
made the h.t of the week. The Montrose
listers Ir their dainty songs and dancea
are nightly encored, as Is also Ed West
ward In h's baritone solo*. The audito
rium will be cloH'd next week.

"I have ha i lay share of traveling." saM
Anna Eva Fay to the Po»t-lntell.gencrr
reporter, "ird at the close of my present
season 1 may retire aid enjoy rest, which
la sunn thing t have heard much about, but
never experienced. Blr.ce my eleventh year

craves a rest b<-1« it be something
new—Just as a cWld is ever yearning fo»
fresh experience
There are few more lnterest'ng conversa
tionalists than Anna Eva Fa.v. because
there are few persona who hare tnveled
so esieogir: ; , are to observant, and have
met so many distinguished people. She
made her debet la l»ndon at the age »f
IS. where she appeared at the queen's
concert rooms. Hanover square, before the
queen, the Prince and Princess of Wale*
and the Duke of Edinburgh, all of whom
treated her with marked C.RT-.S of cordial
ity and kindness. She subsequently met
the princess frequently at the Danish court
In Copenhagen. She spent considerable
time at the court of the Daniah king, and
did not have to go through the ueual for
malities to obtain an audience.
At the court of Russia she was also a
favorite. When she ftrat met the preeent
cxar he was a little fellow. She
spent a year and nine months In Russia
and gave seventy-*!* perf rminces In many
of the different palace*, the last beltig at
the home of the 'lrani Duke Schewolief.
Of course, permission had to be obtained
from the minister of police before she
could give an exhibition at any of the pal
ace*. King Oscar of Sweden presented
Slisa Fly with a handsome gold
a.-vpro; riately inscribed, and a valuable
diamond pendant. This monarch, in her
oplni >n. Is a very accomplished man. He
Is a lover of th» art 3 atid a painter, is well
versed In music, and enjoys many Ameri
can national (tame*. He is very popular
and much beloved by his subjects.
Miss Fay apent eight years on her laat
European trip, the summer of being
passed In Norway and Sweden She made
her way up as far as the North Cape and
saw the famous midnight sun. At Bergtrn
she visited the home of Ole Bull, the Nor
weg an violinist, and crossed from there
to the domains of the cxar. spending some
time en route in Lapland and Finland.
From St. Petersburg Miss Fay made her
way back to PaH*. her favorite stopping
place, appearing at alt the large cities in
Germany. "Part* is the only place In
which to live. I would rather spend Ave
years there than a lifetime anywhere
else." la what she said of it. Bhe then
made her way into Spain by way of rest,
and appeared In Madrid. Barcelona and
other Spanish cities. While In Greece she
was the recipient of a locket set with
pearls. Inclosing a lock of hair of the
queen, who gave It to her. Austria and
Italy also showered favors on her.
"The most wonderful man I ever met."
says Hiss Fay. "Is Bismarck. He at
tended one of my exhibitions at the Stadt
theater In Berlin, and after the perform
ance called on me behind the curtain. The
Stadt la the largest theater In Germany,
and on this occasion every aeat in the
bouse waa sold but one, which the mana
ger afterward presented to me. aaylng it
was the Orst time such a thine ever oc
"I waa In Brussels." contlned Miss Fay.
"when Boulangcr shot himself on the
grave of his mistress. I saw htm two
hours before the tragic end. He was ap
parently happy." She also recalled the
fact that she was In Vienna at the time
the Grand Duke Rudolph stabbed his
mist reus and shot himself.
"Which of the European countries do
you like best?" Miss Kay was asked.
"Russia," was the prompt reply "Much
as has been written and sai l aaalnst the
Russian government, I consider It the best
of any on the old continent. There is no
other oountrv on earth where the govern
ment Is so closely in touch w:th the peo
ple. The anarchists and nihilists have
proved such a disturbing element that the
government has been forceu to adopt
measures which to the average observer
may appear oppressive. When the sltua-

"Dkl you make money while la Rus
sia ?"
"I never failed to make money any
where," was the answer, and there waa
Just a tinge of pride In the tone. "In Rus
sia. however, the public entertainer has
much to contend with that Is unknown
elsewhere. Everything goes through the
hands of the police In Russia, and you
must secure permission from the police
before you can give any kind of an enter
tainment. The printed announcementa
and programmes, before being displayed,
must bear the official stamp and signa
ture of rhe chief of police, and it was in
his stamping capacity that I first met
Ores her. Posters, show bills and litho

posters attracted Immense rhrong*.

witnessed Anna Eva Fay'a
most remarkable exhibition
last evening. The "fair Ma
hatm»" mystified everybody.
Such an unusual entertain
ment and such an apparently
supernatural display of pow
ers were never before wit
nessed here. She does many
things that are unexplained,
and some of them h*ve a
tendency to make one'# flesh
Mtoed In the large audiences before whom
Rile appears, and are mystified and de
lighted. Miss Fay la known all over the
clvilixed world, and also In secluded parts
that have not felt the beneficial hand of
Christianity and education. Miss Anna
Kva !-'a\ the fair Mahatma. will no .lout>t
make aa great a furore In this city as she
does In every city she vialta.
She has recently returned from an ex
tensive tour througb Europe. Asia and
India, bringing with her the results of
her study and research while in the land
of the East India fakirs and the home
of the learned Mabatmas.
Of Miss Fay's performance there Is
mere of Interest and mere of fascination
than attends the ordinary attractions of
this kind, both because of Miss Fay's
well-known powers, ar.d, again, because
of her recent and highly successful tour
of the Old World, where she was received
with the most marked sices of favor by
th>* fa van is of England's metropolis.
Of Miss Fay's power and ability there
Is no room for doubt, no opportunity for
question. The things that she does are
but little, if any, short of the miraculous.
Thure Is, and perhaps always will be a
%ast amount of idle curiosity In perform
ances of this nature, which are always of
the deepest Interest to those who desire
their curiosity'aroused, and who like to
be mystified.
The papers tn the large cities of Ameri
ca speak in the highest terms of her. and
She will no doubt be greeted by large and
fashionable audiences at her approaching
er.Kagement tn this city.
Mi** Fay Is truly a womler. and stems
to create no little excitement In every city
she visits, and causes no end of specula
tion as to how she manatee* to produca
such won<i*rful results In all her experi
ments, and in her (treat Oriental sensa
tion. called "Somnolency."
No explanation is given of the forces
which produce the desired results, and the
audience Is allowed to furnish Its own ex
planation of the stranire phenomenon.
Jd;*s Kay is conceded to be the most re
markable of modern Mahatmas. and she
■will present an entertainment that for In
terest. novelty, wonderment and amuse
ment will tar surpans any ever given by
Hermann or Keller.
If Anna Kva Fay had lived a century
or two ago and performed arueh marvelous
tricks and "things" as she does now, she
would have been deemed a witch and
burned at the stake. And yet what she
does tc-iay far surpasses in wonder what
the greatest witches did in those days.
And people nowadays like to witness such
manifestations, if one- can Judge from the
(Treat crowds that attend Miss Fay's per
formances. In short, any one who want*
to be amused merely, or ar.y one who
wants to see something- to study about
can net afford to miss seeing Miss Fay
The best proof of the satisfaction she
(rives the public is the many re-turn dates
•he plays, and managers of theaters
would not book her for a return engage
ment unless she was a financial success,
and she wouldn't tw* a financial success if
th.» Throngs of people didn't go to see her,
and so many wouMn't go if she didn't pre
sent a performance worthy of their tima
and money.
