MUSIC THE Shriners of Southern California hereby serve notice that the week of April 18 has been pre-empted by them to their own use, that this series of days is to be labeled ""Shrine week," and every one else is to keep hands off. Ben Greet and his company of forty-five players, with the Russian Symphony orchestra of fifty members under the direction of Modest Alt schulcr have been engaged for that date and will appear every afternoon and evening at Snrine auditorium. The week will open with "Midsummer Night's Dream," given by the entire Greet company and with the Mendels sohn music played by the orchestra's children's ballet, and complete scenic investure. Tuesday afternoon, Russian Symphony orchestra program, Tuesday night, "Romeo and Juliet," Greet com pany and Gounod's music by the or chestra. "Everyman," the old morality play, j ■will be given Wednesday afternoon, ! and in the evening, "The Tempest," with Sir Arthur Sullivan's music, or chestral accompaniment. Thursday; night, "Merry Wives of Windsor," by j the Greet company, with the Nicola! music. Production of "Everyman," by the Greet company Friday night, pre ceded by a short orchestra concert in cidental to the old drama. Saturday afternoon a special production for the children as well as adults, the Greet! company alone producing Hawthorne's Wonder Tales, including "Pandora's Box," "King Midas," "Philemon" and "Bancis." "King Rene's Daughters," preceded by a symphony concert, will be given Saturday night, the first time on the Pacific coast. Over 19,000 people attended the Haw thorne afternoon when given for the children on the lawn at the White House the first of last month. Concerning €enor Antonio di Grassi, who is to appear in Simpson auditorium Thursday night, Elizabeth Westgate says the following in the Pacific Coast Music Review concerning that violin ist's appearance in Alameda: "Di Grassi's technical capacity Is limitless, I should declare without great fear of a contradicting voice. At any rate it was more than equal to his program—at no time did he reach the ultimate borders of his ability. And when it is said that the first movement of the D major Cpncerto of Tschaikow sky. not well known here, but full of all amiable and unamiable difficulties, was his first offering, you can realize something of his quality. That far flung'cadenza in itself is a test of a player's accuracy, courage and style; and in spite of a not over-good ~E string it was triumphantly played. "Prelude of the First Sonata (the last two as encores) showed di Grassi a highly intelligent and intellectual play er of the classics, and the Ernst Otello Fantasia gave him a chance at all the tricks of the violinist's trade!" The third and last of the Kingsley opera recitals will be given this aft-1 ernoon in Blanchard hall, with Miss. Mabelle Clarke and Aliss Marguerite Walker as soloists. The' opera Is. "Faust," with the Gounod music, and for lecture purposes has been divided! into ten parts, namely: The dread! compact, the kermesse. the calf of! gold, festive valse, the jewel song, the I garden scene, the soldiers' chorus, the moonlight serenade, the spectres' ride and Marguerite's journey to heaven. A little later the famous Constabu lary band of the Philippines, one of the finest military musical orgamza-1 tions in the world, is expected to fill an engagement in Los Angeles, and the' folkming, taken from the Pacific Coast! Music Review, is of interest: "The band numbers eighty-four men The conductor is Captain Walter Lov ing, an American negro who went toj the islands as bandmaster of one of the HOW I TOOK MY WRINKLES OUT After Facial Massage. Crfams and Beauty Doctors Had Failed BY HARRIETT META Trouble, worry and ill health brought me deep lines and wrinkles. I realized that they not only greatly marred my appearance and made me look much older, but that they would greatly in terfere with my success, because v ■woman* success, either socially or financially, depends very largely upon her appearance^ The homely woman, ■with deep lines and furrows in her face, must fight an unequal battle with her younger a-nd better looking sister. I therefore bought various brands of cold cream and skin foods and mas raged my face with most constant reg ularity, hoping to regain my former appearance, but the wrinkles simply ■would not go. On the contrary, they seemed to get deeper. Next I went to a beauty specialist, who told me she could easily rid me of my wrinkles. I paid my money and took the treatment. Sometimes I thought they got less, but after spending all the money I could afford for such treatment I found I still had my wrinkles. So I gave up in de spair and concluded I must carry them to my grave. One day a' friend of mine who was versed in chemistry made a suggestion, and this gave me a new Idea. I immediately went to work maK ing experiments and studying every thing I could get hold of on the sub ject. After several long months of al most numberless trials and discourage ments I finally discovered a process which produced most astounding re sults on my wrinkles in a single night. I was delighted beyond expression. T tried my treatment again, and lo and behold! my wrinkles were practically gone. A third treatment—three nights In all—and I had no wrinkles and my face was as smooth as ever. I next offered my treatment to some of my im mediate friends, who used it with sur prising results, and I have now decided to offer it to the public. Miss Gladys Desmond of Pittsburg, Pa., writes that it made her wrinkles disappear in one night. Mrs. M. W. Graves of Bridgeport, Conn.,- states: "There is not a wrinkle left: my friends say I look twenty years younger. I consider your treatment a godsend to womankind." Mrs. James Barss of Central City, S. D., writes: "The change is so great that it seems more a work of magic." I will send further particulars to anyone who is interested, absolutely free of charge. I use no cream, facial massage, face Bteatctng or so-called skir. foods; there is nothing to inject and nothing to injure the skin. It is an entirely new discovery of my own and so simple that you can use it with out the knowledge of your most inti mate friends. You apply the treatment at night and then go to bed. In the morning, lo! the wonderful transforma tion. People often write me: "It sound= too good to be true." Well, the test will tell. If interesed in my discovery olease address Harriett Meta, Suite 523F Sy racuse, N. V., and I will send you full particulars.

The members of the band are thoroughly trained and within the organization is a complete symphony orchestra of sixty-two play ers. From the musical standpoint the organization will rank with any in the world, and Sousa, who heard the band, said: 'This is the finest military or ganization I have ever heard, and I have heard many and in all parts of the world.' "The instrumentation of the band is as fellows: Two oboes, two English horns, four flutes, two E fiat clarinets, fourteen B fiat clarinets, two alto clarinets, two bass clarinets, four bas soons, eight saxophones, five garas ophonesi seven B flat cornets, four trumpets, seven French horns, six trombones, one bass trombone, six tu bas, two euphoniums, three drums, complete tympani, chimes, etc. "The symphony orchestra consists of thirty-four violins, six violas, six cel los, five contrabassos, four flutes, two oboes, one English horn, four French horns, four clarinets, one bass clari net, two cornets, two trumpets, four trombones, three bassoons and the usual battery and tympani. "The repertoire ranges from the se vere classical to the jolly Spanish folk dances and American ragtime, and different programs will be given at every concert. "This is the largest musical organ ization that has ever appeared west of Chicago, and Manager Greenbaum cer tainly has shown great enterprise in arranging for it to anpear here before even Washington will hear it. "The symphony orchestra will fur nish the dance music at the president's hall, and after a few concerts at th<e White House the band will tour the country, re-embarking for its island home about September." The next lecture in the Baumgart course of travelogues that is being given Sunday nights in Symphony hall will take place February 21, when "London, the World's Metropolis," will be the topic. The lecture for this evening has been omitted, owing to the unavoidable absence of Mr. Baum gardt in the northern part of the state.
