"Mr. Krauss has been earrjlng off the honors this season. It Is seldom that one hears a lomantic German tenor, and thev. production or this opera has often failed in its lslble forms on this account. Mr. Krauss, however, is a romantic figure on the stage. Ho sang admirabl and his song in. the tournament was given with a fervor seldom exceeded.

"Superba." the Hanlon Brothers' unique spectacle, coming to the Kationnl next week, is said to contain a string of novel ties fiom beginning to end, practically a new entertainment; the entire summer has been given up to rehabilitating it, But one scene of last jear's has been retained, that of the first scene in the third act, the lannjard. The rest is entuely new. One of the most dramatic scenes in the plaj is the c-cape uf Lcander across the chasm of death on hoiseback; he Is seen riding towrfrd the dangerous spot, miles awaj'.jrraduaUv coming nearer and nearer. At length he approaches the nnghtj chasm, but he falters not; with one gigantic" leap horse and rider poise in the air for a few brier seconds in their awful Jump; then horse and rider appear to go down, down to the jawning abjss that awaits them below.

H Grattan Bonnellj the author of "The Woman in Black," the" now melodrama which will be presented tit the Academy next week, says that he lived eight months in the famous Eighth dtstnet. New York, better known to some of the inhabitants of the district as "de ate," in order to get lo.al color, characters and material for his play His "Woman inElack'"in the story was a famous clam oj ant and alleged hj pnotist whose place was closeel bj the authorities arter the Paikhurst agitation a year or two ago, and Krantzer.the political boss of the plaj, has a prototjpe who still runs a place in "de ate," though now shorn of his political pull Mr Donnellj's little Jimp is a lame newsl?j, who maj be seen almost any night aio.md the Hoffman House and Fifth Avenue Hotel Mr. Donnellj takes off his hat to "de ate" district and sajs he got nearly all of his material there Manager Lttt has mounted the play superblj and giv en it an excellent cast Perhaps it will be remembeied that the plaj- was given here last season with success under the title "The Tammany Tiger." Grand. "Fallen Among Thtecs," Thomas H. D.-nls and William T. Keogh's new scenic production for this season, -which comes here at the Grand next week, is a notable contribution to contemporaneous Ameri can drama. It is by Frank Harey, of e.ondon, author of "Ihe Wages or Sin," "Woman Against Woman," and other suc cessful plnys. It is a powerful storj' of countj and city lire, in Vermont and in New York, andissaid to possess the faeulrj of touching the hearts of the people and awakening then sympathies through a channel of homely pathos, Avhile through it till there ripples a vein of the most re fined and exquisite comedy. No expense h is been spired to properly present this plaj-. All ot the thrilling leallsm of the modern drama, and the superb scenic production of the joint art of the scene paintei and stage carpenter, are brought to bear upon the imagination. There is sensation, too, in a scene showing High Bridge, New York, where a heroic -woman dhes headlong from the top into the rier to s.ne the drowning vMhn or heartless "villi in j Bub it is not that it is produced with superb stage settings, extraordinary fea tures, a strong company and in a popular house.

He will give the same complete performance that enjdyed such a long run at the Garrlck Theater.in Nev York. It is not that ChealIerportrajs tvpes of London life with suclc skill, but that he reveals himself a comedian of rare re source, a student of character aud most effective drcmatic painter this is the secret of his success. The coster sketches ate a Teflex ot optimism, anel tiie. domlna'nt note is hope fulncsss and good cli&r. 1'ossibly you would inrcr that thlsrobs-the work of. tho tragic strain that made Yvette Gullbert's HAT chansons appeal with such force, but tears are close to laughter, and Chevalier's songs have a pathetic touch as well as a merry vein. Perhaps they are not songs for in reality the man Is not a singer but rather musical recltaUons, In which re spect there is resemblance between Guil bert and Chevalier. Bijou. TheNoss Jollities, iu "The Kodak," will be the attraction at Uie Bijou Family Theater next neck, and if they do not plaj to crowded houses, It will not be tho fault of the company, for if there ever was a delightful mixture of fun, good music, and dancing, it Is presented by these clever people. All three of. the acts are crowded witli specialties, so many, in fact, that space forbids a de tailed mention of them. Every member of the company, in addition to being comedians of merit, play on a variety or musical instruments, and the music-loving portion or the audience will have all the melody they could ask for. X.ycenin. Tho London Gaiety Girls, announced as the "originals," como to the Ljceum next week to amuse the large patronage of this popular vaudeville house. The opening and closing burlesques pre sent witty satire on topical events, and tho stage is not only prettily set, but the raiment or the players is said to be ex quisite and costly. Accompanying these portions of the pro gram Is an olio, in which the Gaiety Girls will introduce a number of specialties, assisted by a corps or good comedians. WEDS ONE OF THE FINEST. Lieut.
