A fair house greeted J. K. Emmett
and his company in “Fritz in a Mad
House” at O’Brien’s last night.
Mr. Emmett was suffering from a se
vere cold which interfered considerably
with his singing,but notwithstanding this
he gave satisfaction and was encored at
the end of each song. Aside from his
cold he was the same old jolly ‘ Fritz”
that has delighted so many audiences
during his career on the stage.
This was Mr. Emmett’s lirst visit to
Birmingham since 1889, but he had not
been forgotten and his friends turned
out to see him.
The supporting company is fairly good,
and especially was the audience pleased
with Lilttle Baby Slnnot’s singing and
dancing. She sang the “Bowery Girl”
“The White Squadron.”
"The White Squadron,” the greatest
success ever staged by that noted pro
ducer, A. Y. Pearson, will bo an early at
traction in thiB city. Although this play
has been a standard card for the leading
theaters of the country for five years, It
seems not to have lost one whit of Its
popularity, and draws as large audiences
today as it did the first season It was
staged, when It made a hit that has been
recorded as a memorable one In the his
tory of the American drama. The theme
of the piece, which abounds In most ar
dent patriotism, Is one of which audi
ences never grow tired. This year this
great play is presented with an entirely
new scenic and mechanical equipment
by a new company.
The congress of navies In Bio Janeiro,
Brazil, forms the basts of the Intensely
interesting, patriotic and love story
which is related in the action of the
great naval drama, "The White Squad
ron,” which eclipses the first presenta
tion. Kvcry member of the company,
every piece of scenery and every me
chanical effect is new. The great scenes
are the grand plaza in Rio Janeiro, the
interior of the princely residence of fien
eral Romacio, the Parahiba, with its
ruined monastery and the congress of
navies, in which the white squadron of
the American navy Is shown under sail
nnd steam. “The White Squadron” will
be seen at O'Brien's.
Sousa’s Band.
Sousa's advance sale begins at the
opera house tomorrow morning. This
concert should lx1 regarded as a musical
landmark, since, in respect to the great
hand, Its matchless leader and the two
charming nrtlsts who will grace the event
the concert will be an occasion greatly
to be enjoyed and long remembered.
The programme for the matinee and
evening engagements at O'Brien’s Friday
is aB follows:

(b) March—“Kifig Cotton," new (Sou
Violin solo—“Gypsy Dances" (Sara
snte), Miss Currie Duke.
Humoresque—“The Band Came Back”
Prelude—“Carmen' (Biset).
The reader should not lose sight of the
fact that the printed programme of
Sousa’s hand give hut a slight Idea of the
great variety of music played by the gen
ial bandmaster The demand for encores
almost Invariably doubles Sousa's pro
grammes. These encores consist of his
most brilliant marches and other popular
.melodies, plantation songs and dances,
etc. Sousa has a way of pleasing all
tastes, and the people leave his concerts
feeling that they have been entertained
as they ware rarely ever entertained be
fore. The classicists get their share, the
lovers of the melodies of the people,
theirs, and the gallery gods are enabled
to keep time to the southern plantation
dances with indescribable delight. The
feature of Sousa's concerts, together with
the magnetism which Is among his potent
attractions, largely constitutes the great
popularity of the leader at Manhattan
Beach, the St. Louts exposition, and
throughout the country traversed so fre
quently by the concert tours.

Fall Hats
In New and

A hat is one of the most profitable
articles sold by furnishing goods dealers.
A profit Is made on the stylo and tone of
It, as well as the quality.
Our trade policy JA the Selling of Hats,
-as in everything else we handle. Is just
the reverse of this. Buying as we do in
immense quantities,, we secure prices not
obtainable by other dealers. Selling as
we do at a small margin of profit enables
us to name lower prices than anyone
else in the business.

Our assertion that our prices are lower
than those of other dealers is a positive
fact. We’ll gladly prove it if you’ll give
us a chance. The fact is there is no
house in the country that gives the value
we do in hats, and our large and grow
ing trade is the best thing we can submit
in evidence of this fact.
