WIMTCR'S APPAREL. The blazer's dead, Its candy hues No lancer tennis courts adorn; For trousers white and russet shoes Our sweet Adonis has to mourn. Bis lot is hard as nature's is, Whose charms rude winter doth assail. Hers snow and desolation, his Lawn ties and inky swallowtail ! H. J. The craze for the new and novel is espe- ' dally noted in the early receptions and I weddings of this season, and devotees of fashion are never so happy as when intro ducing a unique feature oi some kind. A certain amount of stereotypeness must 1 necessarily be an attribute of a wedding or a reception, but the aim, dnring the season, will be to make each event distinctly prom inent by oddities in dress and floral decora tions. The wedding bell, lovers' knot, horse shoe, wishbone and similar sentimental ideas that were very popular in the past would not be tolerated at the present time; everything must be distinctly individual.

Gillett's Company World's musiuii Curiosities, tc The above are the theatrical attractions for this week. TO AN ACTRESS. The art which makes your eyes so bright, Your cheess all roses, red and white, A cupid's bow your rosy lips. Is well enough; I kiss the tips Of those fair fingers for the boon Of so much beauty. But as soon I would have had your acting show Of art a braver, brighter glow. More art where art is most in place, Less art upon your pretty face. H.J. The theaters have again reason to rejoice over the week's business. It was large at all the houses. Some of the andiences at the Grand Opera House were phenomenally large, the number of children being simply without precedent. The Bijou Theater could hardly hold all the people who wanted to see the Byrons, and at Harris' Theater at every performance the "standing room only" sign was displayed at every presentation. By the way that welcome sign has been ex hibited outside Harris' Theater for 20 consecu tive days excluding Sundays. THE women and children generally accented "Little Lord Fauntleroy" in the heartiest way. Those who were most seriously disappointed were either unable to grasp and appreciate the charm of the story or, and these were the more numerous, those who demanded not Mrs. Bar nett's story set upon the stage, but a drama of the legitimate order built ud in the orthodox way, with climax and anti-climax. 'little Lord Fauntleroy" has enchanted a host of little ones, anyhow, who accepted the pictures ot romantic nobility as Mrs. Burnett planned them. The novelty and simple flavor of the stage story His hardly a play at all refreshed many a grown man, too. This week Mr. Roland Reed shows nsthe light of his countenance once more. It Is reasonable to believe that "A Woman Hater" is a very much better article than "Cheek," in which Mr. Reed was last seen here. The comedy farce "Zigzag" is the Bijon's offer, and it has been improved sin ce last season. Hzpbtjku Johns. The Procramme. MH.Tn.l,OTSON,s"Zig-ZaB"comestotheBlJon Theater this week. "Zig-Zag" has been clayed in all the principal cities of America. It abounds in fun and song and dance. There is no end to the comedy surprises. The mytho logical minuet introduced in the third act is a pretty feature. The whole of the stage is draped with massive black portiers while the classically costumed dancers glide through tbe graceful minuet. Miss Anna Boyd sustains the nart of Flirt with charming abandon. Her songs are all sparkling and' her dancing sprightly and exceedingly clever. Miss Mane Bockell plays the nart of Rene Btaley. Mis Bockell is a favorite vocalist and actress, while Miss Alice Vane makes a rery austere Mrs. Hopper. Mr. Samuel Reed portrays one of the iayest of Jays from Jaysville. Then there Is Mr. Alfred C. Wheelan whose -BoartngMUl is a bit ot character acting. Messrs. Frank Fisher and George Clark? "Phantom Stair case" act is a clever performance. Mr. George Kyle is a quiet comedian, and Mi. Charles Phillips in the role of Bertie Staley. and Mr. Will H. Bray as .Ei'ermonr, the author, sing and dance with remarkable ease. Miss Anna Boyd's costumes are elaborate, and nothing like them has ever before been seen out ot comic opera. It is said. Tbe Philadelphia Timet said a few weeks ago of this play: "TUlotson's Comedy Company returned to the Walnut after an absence of a year, and the bright sayings, pretty costumes and lovely girls captured tbe large audience from the beginning. 'Zig-Zag just bubbles over with fun tbrongbout the threo acts, and has proven itself worthy of the suc cess achieved throughout the country. Miss Anna Boyd as Flirt, tbe incorrigible, won many friends by her charming singing and dancing, and Samuel Reed In his quaint character of Jaggt Green, the country cousin, was exceed inely funny. Alfred C. Wheelan as Soaring Bill, the howling cowboy from Tombstone, looked savage enouch to f tighten stouter hearts than that of Jaggt. An Interesting feature of the programme was the mythological dance of Apollo, Venus. Mercury, Hebe, Helios and Minerva." Ma. Roland Reed, an actor of excellent reputation and one of the leading exponents ot refined comedy now upon the American stage, will make bis fitst appearance here after an absence of nearly three years at the Grand Opera House on Monday evening, when ha will present what has proven the greatest of his many popular successes, "The Woman Hater," an eccentric comedy from the pen of that clever dramatist, the late David D. I Joyd, for merly an editorial writer on the New York Tribune. A play that can play to the capacity of the theater in New York, Boston. Philadel phia and Chicago and receive universal com mendation from the press of those cities must necessarily possess merit. The story of tne play deals with tbe adventures of one Samuel Bundy (Mr. Reed), a supposed woman hater, who in reality adores the sex and it needs no stretch of the imagination to discover tbat any amount of amnsement Is to be gotten out of the entanglement that Bundy gets into when be becomes engaged to no less than three differ ent women at one time and bis final carrjlng off to a private lunatic asylnm by mistake and in the hands of a thoroughly competent com pany such as is Mr. Reed's support. During the play Mr. Reed Introduces a number of new musical .numbers, including a topical parody from the prolific store of Sydney Rosenfeld. In Mr. Reed's company is a young Pennsyl vania girl, Miss Isadore Rush, who made her debnt recently In Boston with great success. She is said to be talented and quite attactive. AT Harris' Theater the favorite Gray and Btephens Company will be the attraction this week. For Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday "Tbe Old Oaken Backet" will be given, and "Saved From the Storm"for the balance of the engagement. Miss Minnie Oscar Gray, who appears as Mttsenger Boy U in the first named play, is a great favorite in this city, and Is without doubt one of tbe best impersonators of heroic boys now before tbe public She has decided to confine herself to that line of busi ness; therefore she has had the popular au thor. Frank Dumont, rewrite "Saved From tbe Storm" in which she will play the bov hero. Miss Gray has surrounded herself with an entirely new and very strong company, in cluding inree ciever singing comeaians. itiessrs. J. C. Harrington, Joseph Coyne and Charles Eastwood. Special scenery is carried for both plays, ana every attention paia to aetaus. jur. W. T. Stephens has devoted much of his time to the tuition of his dramatic dogs, and they are. It is said, more wonderful than ever, and are potent factors in the unravelling of the plot. AT the Academy of Musio the attraction this week will be Gillett's World en Wheels Vaudeville Company, Its members present, besides a capital variety performance, a unique and remarkable exhibition of what can be done on tbe bicycle. Tbe dexterity and grace with with which the five members of the Gillett family ride the bicycle is astonishing, and fas cinating as well. In other specialties tbe com pany includes tbe MIdgleys, Emerson and Cook, Smith and Post, Agnes Atherton, Ripley and Risbee and others. The World's Museum on Federal street, Allegheny, continues to attract large audiences day and night. This week Manager Geary an nounces that be has a good minstrel company and tbe only original ossified man. But there are fifty other attractive features in the muse um's programme. Stage Whispers. Draffs "Seven Ages" appear to be a go. Maggie Mitchell is now Mrs. Charles Abbott. Fktenss of Mn.Beuchler Beatrice More the young Allegheny actress, presented a beau- t2 -&AWt tlf ul basket of roses to her on Thursday even ing at the Bijou Theater. i Minnie Masdebn, when traveling on the road, is said to affect green veils and nibble Saratoga chips. She Is an omnivorous novel reader, and affects the eccentricities of Bern hardt. H. B. Conway Is very suggestive, says 27ie Black Cat, of Charles Cogblan. In a more dramatic play than "Our Flat," I fancy he vrnnlrt -rlnWf pn.iM.nhla nf thatOUlet maSCU- line Intensity that wo have often admired, while we criticised it. In the elder actor. The Jefferson-Florence combination is a tremendous Buccess, and business at the Star Theater, New York, is thelargest that has ever been known at that bouse. Tho Combination of snch brilliant comedians as Joseph Jeffer son, W. J. Florence and Mrs. John Drew in one company has never before been equaled, and their success is not to be wondered at. Evans and Hoet will be the next attraction at the Bljon, presenting again th'eir ever green success "A Parlor Match." They are on a re turn trip from California, where their business has been phenomenal. Their company this season is the strongest they have ever carried. New music, new songs and new dances have been introduced into the "Parlor Match," until It is almost a new show. "Bluebeard, Jr.; or, Fatlma and the Fairy," the brilliant spectacular extravaganza of the Chicago Opera House, Is In Its last week at the Broad. Street Theater. Philadelphia. The niece has been received with the utmost favor by the press of tbat city, the Times and Prew affirming that no such magnificent spectacular effects have ever been witnessed in America. The ballets are described as being marvelous in their artistic groupings, and the marches and ensembles as of the most effective character. It is claimed that "Bluebeard, Jr.," Is the most expensive organization traveling. It comes to this city at an early date. "I hate been told that 'Josephine, Empress of the French,' is not for the masses," said Mile Rhea, speaking of her new play. "On tho contrary. I say that It is for the masses. The language, though excellent, Is not of that ob scure kind employed by writers who strive to conceal tbe paucity of their ideas with a multi tude of sonorous phrases which signify noth ing. The language is natural, and so are tbe situations of tlie play. One needs only have a heart and a soul to appreciate 'Josephine,' and thoy are lound among the so-called lower classes as well as among tbe highly cultured. Therefore, I say the play Is for the masses as well as for the more educated, and such my ex perience with it has shown to bo the case." A good many stories are told aboothowstar avoid playwrights, who make theirattacks with huge manuscripts which they are always ready to read. The other day Roland Reed dodged a very persistent one from whom he thought ho made bis escape. Not so, however. The crafty playwright bad watched him go to his room and followed. Mr. Jack, Mr. Reed's manager, was waiting for him, when some one knocked at tbe door. Jack opened it. and Reed recog nized the voice. "Talk to him outside a min ufp " whisnered Reed to his manager. He did. and when both entered Reed had gone. -Jack got rid of the playwright, bnt ten minutes later Reed made his appearance stained with red paint from head to heels. He had gone down a newly painted fire escape, and the dodge cost him just SOU In a slightly sarcastic vein The Black Cat speaks of Manager Harry Miner, of New York, as follows: Tbe pet hope of this genial mana ger is, I understand, to some day build a temple of art on tbe banks of tbe Hudson, where every form of entertainment, from Shakes peare and Moliere to glass-eating, can be given simultaneously in different sections of the building. Wax works, lunch counters, an cient sculpture, bathing tanks, ring shows, monkev houses, Ada Rehan in comedy, Salvint in a rage, Fanny Rice In plush breeches, bal loon ascensions, oratory by Mr. Depew, lect ures on belles lettres by John Stetson, pie-eating contests, chats on millinery by the "Per sonal Intelligence Man" of the Ilerald, anecdotes about graves by William Winter, sunny weather, and oyster stews, are to be ob tainable here at Varying prices. One door will lead you into the presence of Patrick Reilly executing a Battery Park monologue, while another will take yon to the sacred feet of 'Lillian Russell, as she sings tbe world away to the palaces beyond the blue. "French actresses are inclined to over-paint," writes Alfred Thompson, "and some become almost as much caricatured as tbe Japanese beauty of tbe Tea House, with ber whitened cheeks and crimson eyelids. I once took Sarah Bernhardt to task for painting her lips scarlet in broad day. Sarah, who is one ot the most charming camarades when she likes, was not in tbe least offended, but laid it all to habit. With her tbin lips the outline Is necessary at night, and gives much sweetness to her face when her golden voiee is poured caress ingly on to the attentive ear; but by day there is something ghastly in It, Beauty wants this help. Even Mrs. Lang 'try was quite under the impression for Eome time that ber face required no extraneous assistance of anyfkind. I happened, in con versation with her at a supper given by Dion Boncicault at Delmonlco's, to ask her why she did not make up her eyes, to which she simply replied tbat she did not know she needed it. She bad already made enormous strides lu her art, but was totally ignorant of makingher eyes appear before an audience what they are in the light of the sun. Without tbe least affectation Mrs. Langtry asked my aid. and on tbe first night of "Galatea" at Nlblo's she astonished her admirers by tbe depth and brilliancy of ber eyes and complexion. 1 have ber autograft somewhere thanking me lorieaching her bow to make up." Tbe Lucky Numbor. One of the novel features of the Exposition was the registering of names by tbe Singer Manufacturing Company, and drawing, at the close of the Exposition, for one of their elegant drop cabinet machines. Every lady, regardless of the machine she was using, bad an opportunity of drawing this machine by registering her name at the stand, and over 12,000.availed themselves of it. Of these 12,000 ladies, 80 per cent are now using Singer machines. The drawing was conducted at the Expo sition in the simplest aud fairest manner possib'e. At 9 o'clock two little girls were selected from the audience, and requested to draw the tickets, two disinterested gentle men acting as judges. The lncky number was 3,831, held by Mrs. Emma Zimmerman, of Salem, O., and she was at once notified of her good fortune by telegraph. Although the Exposition is now closed, the Singer Manuiacturing Company will continue their exhibit at their main office, Ho. 8 Sixth street.

Ah I all the while you sang to me My heart was singing too; Was singing, singing o'er and o'er "I'm waiting, love, to woo." Ton sang of summer time's farewell, Of autumn's chilly rain, But cheerful sang my heart ot love A passing sweet refrain. At last the final chords you struck, You took with ease hich C. And as you took it, love, you snatched My heart away from me. H.J. A charity concert of altogether extraor dinary proportions is now first announced to be given at Old City Hall on Tuesday, No vember 19, tor the benefit of that most worthy and practical institution, the Pitts bunr Domestic Training School. With the imposing array of "patronesses" represent ing this community's Four Hundred, this column has not much concern; but it is just as imposing for all that. The bright particular star of the occasion will be Hiss Emma Juch, who comes upon specially moderate terms and in spite of great hindrances as a dis tinct favor on ber part and that of Manager Charles E. Locke toward certain of the managers of the charity in particular and the dear pnblic of Pittsburg in general. We have all heard this sort of thing before; in the present case the favor is indisputable. Miss Juch will have to hurry from the theater in Baltimore to the train in the costume Marguerite has just died ill; it is not designed as a street cown. She will likewise have to hurry off from the concert to the train here. Furthermore, she has lately declined several offers of concert engagements much more convenient and remunerative. Hence the special favor alleged above. Miss Juch will appear in two numbers. So will twoof tbe local organizations DartlclDatine: the Poco-a-Poco Orchestra and the Philhar monic Society which will, respectively, open and close each part of the programme. All other performers are limited to one appear ance in order to give time for a big list All the local participants, by the way, have volun teered their services gratis. As far as now made oat the roster includesi Miss Agnes Vogel, Miss Mamie Reuck, Mr. Harry B. Brockett, Mr. William Guenther. Mr. J. H. Gittines and Messrs. Beidle, McCausland, Bearl and Wagner, forming the Haydn Quar tet. It is expected to secure several others as well known or still more so. A prime novelty which it is hoped to secure is the phonograph the gentleman's (no lady's; it talks back) first concert appearance in Pitts burg. Negotiations are in progress with Mr. Edison personally, and if they are successful, the audience will have a chance to discrimin ate between brass bands bottled and on tap. There is a deal of sound sense In Mr. Hender son's remarks in the New York Timet apropos of last month's Worcester Festival. The fol lowing extract therefrom may be especially commended to our Mozart Club to prick the sides of its lageine Intent to have analytical and descriptive programmes at its concerts some day: To suddenly confront a raw public with a series of concerts of the highest order would unquestionably be a more than hazardous ex periment But musical taste is less difficult of development than tbe Worcester County Musi cal Association imagines. The first step wonld be to rigoronsly exclude all music not of tbe very finest quality. Tbat does not necessarily imply the performance of the largest and most senous works. The smaller jewels of the great musical treasure box might be first exposed without dazzling tbe public eye, and afterward the larger gems mlgbt be produced. For in stance the Worcester public bas never been invited to feast on such melodious and perspicu ous works as Schumann's D .minor symphony and Mozart's "Reqalem." "There Is an abundance of such works which could be presented to the Worcester public without danger of causing a fit of mental indi gestion. And then the programme book could be made very much more instructive than It now is with the assistance of a little more logi cal arrangement ot the compositions. At the festival just ended three large choral works were performed Mendelssohn's 'St Paul,' Sullivan's 'Golden Legend' and Haydn's 'Crea tion.' They were given in the order named. Now, If Haydn's work bad been placed first. Mendelssohn's second and Sullivan's third, the programme book would naturally have contained a brief and lucid account of the growth of the oratorio and cantata, explaining the difference in character and treatment be tween works of Haydn's day and those of the present and Intervening periods. Such an essay, accompanied by the performed Illustra tions, would have materially advanced musical education in tbe community. The same process could be followed out in the instrumental and vocal music, and no loss, but rather an increase in the variety of tbe programmes would follow. Foundations would thus be laid for taste and intelligence which would enable the Worcester pnblic to digest happily a feast of the new romantic school lbe methods and purposes of to-day would be ex plained in tbe programme book, and in a short time the music-loving public of the city, which is too large and Important to be so neg lected, would learn to understand and ap preciate cotemporaneous musical thought This would result in a higher and fuller com. prehension of the works of the older masters, for obviously those who have climbed to thn pinnacle of the mountain command a wider view than those who have ascended but half way. Systematic educational effort is what tbe Worcester festivals need, and the labor is one that maybe undertaken without fear. It has never tailed yet, not even In busy, money hunting New York." .. Thb Dispatch presents its compliments to the diseiteemed American Musician, with thanks for its latest practical exposition of what in a former issue it called the "amenities of decent journalism." The use of such petty terms as "boot-lick-ers" and "cur" cannot be regarded as out ot place In a paper that shows its conspicuously poor taite in personally villlfylng Mr. Higgin son because of his liberality to the Boston Sym phony Orchestra, and that displays its preten tious ignorance In declaring that the tours of tbat orchestra and Theodore Thomas bare cre ated a competition harmful to local orchestral efforts In the various places visited. But tho poor Mutician, so-called, is ratber to be pitied than blamed. After all it has said on the subject, it conld hardly help feeling dis composed just now over tbe fact tbat Mr. Mkisch effected an easy landing on our shores, and has auite as easily shown his auita snffl. cient capability of leading Mr. Hlgglnson's forces on to greater triumphs than ever. It will hardly feel so badly or talk so impolitely after it bas had time to cool off a bit With the chamber muslo matinee of the Beethoven Quartet on Thartday next, tbe Thomas concert Friday evening, the Mozart Clnb cantata, and the big oharity concert, all within a very short space, tbe season of 18S9-90 will have a brilliant inauguration. Tbe musi cian's are preparing fine things for Pittsburg this season; let us hope that tbe public will worthily respond. At the beginning it cannot be too strongly impressed upon tbe pnblic mind tbatmncn very much, for the near and the farther future depends upon their cordial support of the Mozart Club. With its extraordinary plan of campaign, already encouraged by the liberality of Mr. Carnegie and others, there Is only needed a reasonable response from tbe public at large to insure the greatest musical things that Plttsbnrg of herself bas ever accomplished. Theodore Thomas deserves well of our pnb lic also. His testimonial tour has beenenthu slasticallyeceived elsewhere, and our town must not be found wanting. In sending in tbe notes for programmes, let us hope tbe dear finbjic will bear in mind their privilege of nam ng single pieces as well as whole programmes. If two or three of tbe mot "popular" numbers conld be introduced into the first or tbe third of the programmes proposed, everybody wonld be pleased. The second programme unchanged would scarcely satisfy many of the more In telligent music lovers. Crotchets and Quavers.

In the second concert of the Berlin Philhar monic Society, Gregorowitscb, one of the rj-rst talented of the younger violin virtuosi, is vo play an unpublished violin concerto by Dr. Leopold Damroscb, kindly placed at his dis posal by the composer's son, Walter. The Board of Directors of the Art Society met yesterday and elected a large number of new members. The first reception for the sea son will be held on the 14th prox., when Mr. John A Brashear wll lecture on "Color", and a brief musical programme, probably, be ob served. At the University of Berlin a course of public lectures on musical subjects will be given dur ing the coming winter. Prof. Bellermann will treat of the musio of the ancient Greeks, and Prof. Spitta will consider the state of concert and chamber music since tho death of Beeth oven. Teat dainty suite of Victor Herbert's seems to be winning laurels for its composer, having been recently played with great success In Berlin at one of the Philharmonic concerts and in Holland also. Mr. Herbert will be heartily welcomed next Friday no doubt His work at the May Festival Is not forgotten. A MUSICAL and literary entertainment for the benefit of the Brnnot Home, Stockton avenue, Allegheny Citv, will be given next Fri day evening. Tbe services of Mrs. Pershing Anderson, Mrs. F. G. Fricke, Mrs. Isa Lazear, Mr. A Kornblnm and several other well known people have been secured for the occasion. The Philharmonic Society, of New Brighton, which has lately been organized, with Mr. Charles Davis Carter, of Pittsburg, as con ductor, held its first rehearsal last Monday evening. The chorns comprises 40 or SO voices of exceptional quality, Mr. Carter says- A hundred associate members have subscribed tor tbe series of three concerts to be given this season. At the Paris Conservatory this year, no less than 2S2 recompenses were distributed to the pupils. Of these honorary distinctions, 48 were first, and 43 second prizes, the remainder being accesslts and medals of three classes. Seven prizes In money (aggregating 6,000 francs) were awarded, while many of tbe first prizes of tbe iano classes received Instruments from prom lent manufacturers. The Allegheny Musical Association, Mr. W. A Lafferty, conductor, has now a chorus of 75 voices pretty fairly represented in the Tuesday evening rehearsals at the Fourth U. P. Church, Montgomery avenue. Benedict's "St Cecilia," Jensen's "Feast of Adonis," and Hcnubert's "Song of Miriam" are now being studied, and it is proposed soon to take up a cantata of im portance, by some American composer. But when is this promising table to be spread for public delectation! An esteemed local cotemporary, after de scribing an antique viol d'amour as being twice as thick as a violin and having a double row of strings, gravely recalls the fact (?) that -Fritz Krelaler played tbat kind of an instru ment at Old City Hall last season. This con firms the sospfcions aroused by the double decker adjectives used by the same paper last year in praise of tbe clever bnt uneven playing of tbe young violinist mentioned. Clearly it mnslcal scribe must have been "seeing double" when he attended the Rosemhal- Krelsler concert Mrs. Jciia A H. Meixoe, widow of John H. Mellor, one of the pioneer piano dealers of this region, died yesterday morning at the family residence on Second avenue. Mrs. Mel lor used to be a leading soprano here: she sang at Trinity Church, where her husband was or ganist, well back toward half a century ago. Her son, Mr. Charlei C. Mellor, and her daugh ters. Miss Louisa P. Mellor and Mrs. Annie M. Schelb, of Canton, O.. are the surviving mem bers of this mnslcal family. Mrs. Mellor was far advanced in aee, and grief at her demise may be tempered by the reflection tbat sur cease of pain has came to the invalid of many years. Abbey's enterprises have assumed enormous dimensions, and his most expensive one this year his Italian Opera Company entails a weekly outlay of 125,000. The company, with such singers as Patti, Albanl, De Nere, Tarn agno, Del Puente, Nordlca, Valda, etc, will open the Chicago Auditorium on Novem ber 7. Thence the troupe Is to be taken at on:e in a special train to the City of Mexico. From thence they go to Ban Francisco, where great financial results are expected, and after completing that en casement tbe trip east will be begun. Boston. Philadelphia and New York will be entertained by the company, after which Mr. Abbey will try to strike his balance. Let us hope that It will be on tbe right side. Courier. Thb committee of Leeds Festival, which opened on October 9, ventured on an unusual step in Inaugurating their proceedings with Berlioz's "Faust," In lieu of the usual "Elijah" or "Messiah." Mr. Cooler's new work, "The Sword of Argantyr," and tbe whole of tbe third act ot "Tannbanser," formed the even ing programme for the same day. Each'x cantata, "God's Time Is Best," Bchubert's mass in E flat, and Handel's "Ads and Galatea" were down for the morning of Thursday; while for the even ing Dr. Creser's "Sacrifice of Frela," written to a libretto by the late Dr. Huefler, and Dr. Mackenzie's "Pibroch," written for Sarasate, were tbe chief attractions. No less Interest attached to the ode, "St Cecilia's Day," by Dr. Parry, and the ballad, 'The Voyage of Maeldue,"by Prof. Vllllers Stanford, which were given on Friday morning and evening respectively. Tbe Art of Singing. It is with great pleasure that we draw the attention of our music loving public to the fact that Mr. H. B. Brockett, Jr., has re turned to our city and opened his studio for the teaching of singing in all its branches, drawing room, concert, oratorio and opera. Mr. Brockett Is possessed of a tenor voice of rare excellence and extent; has studied under the best masters in Europe, so that he is both practically and theoretically competent to give the very best and most artistic instruction in the art of singing. Mr. Brockett already numbers among his pupils quite a number of our most accom plished and cultivated amateurs, and his time is being rapidly filled up; he has some hours yet at his disposal, and we would strongly impress upon those who desire first class instruction In singing, that Mr. Brockett is the man, and that it they want the benefit of his talents they had better apply at once. His room is No. 531, Bis sell Block, cor. Seventh avenue and Smith field street. Half Kates to the Catholic Congress at BaN llmore, Sid.! via tbe Pennsylvania Rail rond.
