SEATS FOR SYMPHONY. ANSWER TO MANY 1SQVIRIE& ABOUT SALE. Single Evening Event ol New Haven Orchestra Creates Much Interest Dates Announced. In answer to many inquiries as to whotvioi. aii tvio ovmnhnnv concert seats . kave been subscribed for, the managers desire to say that there are still sev eral hundred good seats unsold,' and these will be placed on sale for the sin gle evening concert which is to take place on Tuesday, January 16. It has been decided to have the sale at Woolsey hall box office on Saturday and Monday from 11 until 1 a. m., and on the day of the concert from 11 a- m. until the hour set for beginning 8:15. It is probahly because the attendance is so large at the afternoon symphonies that this impression of no seats left has gone abroad, fbr to the casual looker-on the vast auditorium is apparently entirely sold out. Some of the best Beats In the house are to be had, never theless, tout it would be advisable to go as early as is convenient if one chooses cortain locations as the evening con cert always brings out the biggest at tendance of the year- There are so many, especially business men, who cannot so to the afternoon concerts, and interest in her symphony orchestra has grown amazingly tin New Haven. There is general rejoicing among the musical onee that Antoinette Szumow eki, the great Russian pianiste, Is to play, and still greater enthusiasm over the fact that she will play a Chopin concert, and no one plays Chopin as does Antoinette Szumowska, unless it is perhaps the man with whom she stu died for so many years, Ignace Pader ewski. W. J. Henderson! said of her once: ''The intimate charm, the quickening Imagination of her readings, her keen Unsight Into the inner, meaning, the finish and grace of her playing, and the opalescence of her tone, made all that ehe played delightful." , Going to Europe T Like the famous recipe for cooking a hare, it is first In order before going to Kurope to secure' your steamship reservations, for while each year new "ocean leviathans" are put Into com mission, the ever Increasing number of those who go abroad takes up the best rooms long In advance of sailing date. .When staterooms are carefully se lected! there is never any, deposit for feited if one has to give up the cher ished plans, for in the season there is always a long waiting list, and good reservations are easily resold. This year In particular the indica tions are that there will be an unpre cedented exodus to Europe, and those who are thinking of going across and have not yet booked passage should en gage the same without further delay. We particularly recommend our read ers to call on Messrs. Sweezey and Kelsey, the well known general steam, jship and tourist agents, located at 102 Church street, where they can obtain h most complete information regard ing all steamship lines.

The attention of our readers is ear nestly directed to the advertisement of the Stelnertone Piano company on an other page of this paper By a simple business method this company is en abled to soil its wonderful pianos at manufacturers' prices. It sells only at the factory warerooms, 106 Park street, this city, and thus saves the purchaser the large expense that Is necessarily added by companies maintaining costly warerooms on large business thorough fares. The qualities of the Stelnertone piano are unquestioned. Its superiority over all other makes In tonal power, action end durability la a fact long establish ed. Prospective purchasers are cor dially invited to inspect the pianos at the factory warerooms, 106 Park street ATE JR TA 1 XMEyTS. Hrper'on Tbeater. Miss Olga Nethersole, In one of her greatest roles, "Sapho," will be the at traction at the Hyperion theater to night, January 10. This dramatic ar rangement of Daudet's famous novel, presented by such an artist I as Olgo Nethersole, must be regarded as one of the principal events of the entire dramatlo season. Daudet dedicated his novel "To my son, when he is Twenty one years old" and he Intended It as a great moral lesson to' youth. Clyde Fitch has carefully adapted the story for stage presentation, and as now giv en, It Is a strong and powerful play which undoubtedly teaches a great moral lesson. The first act, showing the studio of a French artist during a revel In the Lattln quarter, Is one of the most gorgeously staged scenes ever presented In a theater. Over fifty different costumes are shown at this masquerade. Here Miss Nethersole ap jears as Fanny LeGrand, model for a famous staute of Sapho, and the most talked of beauty in the world of art end letters. Jean Gaussin, a young man from the country, visiting a func. tion of this kind for the first time, meets and loves Fanny, and she, fas cinated by his youth and inexperience, loves him. The succeeding acts show ihow this lai'son, begun In a moment of infatuation, nearly wrecks the lives of both. Nethersole undoubtedly Is at her best in depicting the emotional woman, and in "Sapho" she runs the gamut of all the emotions, from the lightest gayety In the first act, to the strongest and most convincing pathos and denunciation in the third act. Miss Nethersole will be assisted by her entire London company of forty people, supplemented by thirty super numeraries carried especially to give life and color to the scene of the mas querade ball. Two car loads of scenery ar erequlred just for the proper pre sentation of this play. Tho announce ment of Miss Nethersole s visit has del uged the box office with mail orders. andHhe indications are that a capacity audience will greet the celebrated Eng lish actress when she-jnakes her first appearance here. Seats now on sale, MARIE CAHILL. Marie Cahill and her beautiful girls, together with the entire original New York cast, will be seen at the Hyperion theater Thursday evening, January 11, in the sensational ' musical hit of the season "Molly Moonshone," words by George V. Hobart arid Edwin Milton Royle and music by Silvio Hein. They come direct from a ten weeks' run in New York city, where the pro duction smashed record after record for business. The part of "Molly Moon shone" is evidently the best that jolly Miss Cahill has ever had and shows to best advantage the great originality of this charming comedienne. The re pressed me hod of conei3y which Miss Cahill employs scored 'heavily with the faiigued theater-goers of New York. George Hobart has supplied Miss Ca hill with a roaring sequence of typical American w'tticisms and the entire piece Is classy and bright. , Seats now selling. MARGARET ANGLIN. Margaret Anglin in the now famous Manners-Miller drama "Zira" is among the several Broadway theatric success es of the present season that are to be seen in this city In the ne rafuture. The distinguished actress will appear here at the Hyperion theater . Wednesday, January 11, Under the direction of the Messrs.- Shubert and Henry Miller. "Zira" delighted audiences for over three months -at the Princess theater, and the futraction comes to us with the most remarkable Gotham press praise ever afforded a polite drama. The pre cise Broadway production and cast will be seen intact Wew Haven Thenter. There was a crowded house at the New Haven theater last night to see "How Baxter Butted In." The story of how "Baxter," an up-to-date commer cial traveler, "butts in" and spoils the attempt of a country shyster to rob and disgrace a defenceless vlllaga girl is the foundation of the play. Uaxter at length Is successful In his efforts to defeat this young girl's enemies, and all ends happily. Sidney Toler, the popular young actor, takes the part of Baxter and he is seen at his best. The supporting company Is a good one In every respect. The per formance Will be repeated to-day, mat inee and night,' and " all who enjoy a good laugh should, see it. THE DANITES. It remained for Joaquin Millet, known as the "Poet of the Sierras,", to present an adequate description of the early days of the settlers In the ' far west-and offered the beautiful play "The Danites," founded upon historical facts- Others followed, but "The Dan ites," like the brook, goes on forever. Presented by a specially chosen com- lip mS ' I Iff wmM "Vl 11 nl s fast suf l6flS fashion: 1 cc 1 liver oil and emulsions because, without a drop of oil or disagreeable feature, it contains all the medicinal elements of cod liver oil, actually taken from fresh cods' livers. By our process the oil, having no value either as a medicine or food, is separated from the medicinal elements and thrown away. Unlike old-fashioned cod liver oil and emulsions, Vinol is deliciously palatable, agreeable to the weakest stom ach, and therefore unequaled as a body builder and strength creator for old people, puny children, weak, run-down men and women, after sickness, and for all pulmonary diseases. Everything: Vinol contains is named on the label.

It is gratifying to the theatergoing public, who appreciate artistic work, to learn that Miss Bianca West will ap pear in the role of 'Billy Piper." Miss West is pleasantly remembered here as having played in "The Christian," suc ceeding Viola Allen; "Colorado" and "Her Lord and Master," but never has she been cast for a part that affords her the opportunities of displaying her dramatic ability as in "The Danites." As a whole, the cast, production and scenery is far beyond the ordinary. Seat sale now open. "A WIFE'S SECRET." Although there is no star In "A Wife's Secret," the successful emotional play which Spencer and Aborn are pre senting for its second season, there are two -special features in the cast who share the stellar honors. One is Miss Virginia Thornton, the well known young emotional actress, who plays the role of the" girl-wife, turned from her husband's home to battle against the cynicisms of the world; and the other Is Mrs. Charles G- Craig, who enacts the droll comedy character of Aunt Dil sey, the old negress who accompanies the young wife to protect her against hardship and danger. Both actresses occupy the highest position in the pro fession in their respective lines, and they are surrounded by a company of like repute. "A Wife's Secret" comes to the New Haven theater January 15, 16 and 17. Matinee Wednesday. Poll's New Thenter. Poll's post cards, a handsome sou venir card, containing a view of the interior of Poll's Palatial Pleasure palace, will be presented to very one attending the Thursday matinee at this theater. Big show, with Emmott Corrigan & Co. in the leading sketch, holds the top line at this theater this week. Manager Poll next week offers one of the biggest sensations he has yet sprung in the engagement of Le Rouge Domino, or i'The Girl With the Red Mask," who has toeen making the big gest stir of any vaudeville feature In New York. All sorts of explanations and theories have been put forth as to why this young woman keeps her face forever covered with a red mask, never for an Instance permitting any one to catch a glimpse of her features, but as yet no satisfactory conclusion has been reached. It Is believed that she Is an English noblewoman who has been forced by circumstances to take up the stage to recoup a lost fortune, and whose pride has impelled her to con ceal her actual identity lrom the world. Sh uuas for morethan a vear the most I talked of - person In London and Paris before coming to New xorK, and lor the past six months she has been dis cussed on all sides in the metropolis It is claimed that not even her manag ers have ever yet looked upon her face, and that they are as much In the dark as the public as to actual Identity. The young woman, however, Is said to have the form of a Venus, and to dance as one with rubber springs in he r feet, the New "York ; vaudeville reviewers claiming that no such nimble terpsl chore'an rork has ever before been show In the metropolis. Her appear ance at Poll's will be her first and only one In New England, as she sails very shortly for London, where she Is to begin a year's engagement at the Palace theater. imMmmmmwmiwwummma - t" '1 1 fJtWil Bijou Thenter. The stock company at the. Bijou pre sented "Du Barry" before to large au diences yesterday and was enthusiasti cally received at both of tliie perform ances. , i The play, while of course,' being unde niably Frenchy, lacks that suggestlve ness of any of the works of other French dramatists. It Is ia drama pure and simple, the scenes bejing laid In the day of Louis XV. f "Du Barry" proved toj be a play of extraordinary interest, a id it is beauti fully dressed. The goWts of the ladles are especially brilliant l and the cos tumes of the men picturesque, adding much to the? many beaulilful stage pic tures. . ( Miss Gertrude Shipmam as Du Barry was exceptionally strong, and ln the last act her stage tears were mingled with real ones in the audience. Law rence B. McGill as Louis; XV. was un usually good in that mojst trying part, his acting being natural and hot forced. As the Duchess de Chaeroux, the de throned favorite, Edith1 Crolius. filled the role in a most capable manner. James Gordon as the marshal of France was also very good, and the Count de Saint Germain of Francis Owen was very clever. In fact, the work of the whole company was exceptionally good. The scenic effects were highly , com mendable. The usual local scenery which is generally -expected gave place to the more elaborate settings which are required fur the play. The production continues throughout the week, and it Is safe to predict large houses. LATEST FAIR HA7EN NEWS RESIDENTS ARE PLEASED OVER HUMPH RET ST. EXTENSION.

Next Sunday the Contribution for the Hospitals Will be Made On Satur day In the Jewish Churches. The following circular was read from the pulpits of the various churches oh Sunday, accompanied in many cases by appeals from the pastors for liberal donations next 'Sunday: ..' ' NEW .Haven Hospital, Office of the . Prudential Committee, New Haven, Conn., January 1, 1906. r HOSPITAL SUNDAY, JANUARY 14- In pursuance of a well established custom, the New Haven Hospital ap peals to the public for contributions on Hospital Sunday. . ThiB Institution, foremost among the several charitable agencies of our city in its field of work among the suffering poor, is constantly growing, and the damands upon jts resources are exces sive. During the past year we have had on more than one occasion as many as two hundred patients under treatment, and the daily average has been higher than in any previous year. The major ity of the patients are classed as "self paying," but, as only those who occu py private rooms pay the full cost of their support, there Is a loss to the hos pital on by far the: greater number of the patients received. The deficit must be made up from the donations of the charifablt, the income from the In vested funds of the hospital, and the annual allowance received from the state. The reveue from these sources does not keep pace 'with the growth of the work, hence our appeal at this time Is more Urgent than ever before. The pressing need for enlarged ac commodations,! for long time been apparent, but' we have been unable to provide them, and have been obliged to limit expenditures to the repairs im peratively demanded by the wear and tear on our ; plant. We must secure more Income or refuse to admit many of the sick and injured who apply to us for aid. The' hospital needs and 'merits four benefactions, and we are confident that this appeal will be liberally; responded to. Contributions may be sent at any time to the treasurer, -Mr. Charles' E. Curtis, at the City bank, or to Mr. J. R, Coddington, the superintendent, at the hospital. W'ilflam G. Daggett, Harry G. Day, Frederick G. Hotchkiss, prudential committee. Note.
