Of STARS HEARD IN GRAND OPERA Audience Delighted With Opening Night's Double Bill of San Carlo Com pany's Engagement. Salazar and Elizabeth Ams den Win Praise—"Tales of Hoffman'' at Matinee Today and "Faust" at Closing Performance. By MRS. J. G. GREEN. There vai a sparkling galaxy of gtar» In Maacagna'a "Cavalleria Rua tlcana" and Leoncavella's "I Pagllac ysl'* aa preaented by the San Carlo Op [era company at the Plnney theatel jlnst evening. There vaa a hint of :| .Caruso voice In both, and la Salazar avae the moat brilliant constellation of |the group with Elizabeth Amaden se cond In radiance, it must have been due not only to their excellence of tone t>ut also to the temperament of eaoh. The big, appreciative audience which filled the whole theater expressed Its Appreciation of both In hearty applause And Salazar was given an ovation. AD the "first nlghters" were there, And some, whose eara long attuned to grand opera In the big cities of the eastern states and down ln San Fran cisco where even the suburbanites can not exist without grand opera, came In An the trains or motored In from the new towns miles and miles away to revel again In the melody of old time favorites. And a royal feast It was. Salazar has a tremendous personality. IHls losres and his hatreds are expressed with the depth and intensity which be longs to his race. And hie race la the Latin which ever sings of the passion ate red rose of love and the cold white Steel of hata He does It well; and he draws hie audience with him to heights sublime or they go down to the bot tomless pit with him In a tempest of «rief and a vengeful whirlwind of fury which slays to the death on Its way. That he can express all this In a magnificent voice and that added to the voice Is a mastery of the art of acting as well, gives a faint Idea of the virile Interpretation and rich coloring with which Salazar endows his part. WON HER AUDIENCE. Elizabeth Amaden'a name does not suggest a daughter of Italy or Sicily. That she Is, however, in temperament akin to the warm-blooded people of the sunny Venetian plain, was regally patent last night when she sang her self Into the hearts of her audience as the betrayed and unhappy Santuzza. Romance and tragedy, love and de spair spoke In the vibrant quality of her voice and the Intensity of her emo tions, which also found expression In' part In her acting. Her beauty was a delight to behold. Stella Demette as Lola, the faith less wife of Alflo, was artistically clever, cruel and repellant, which com prised the qualities sought by ths composer, and which were sung with gracs and charm. Alflo, the part ta ken by Angelo Antola, was the true Blcllllan and his revenge was sdmlr ably visualised In his presentation. Alice Homer deserves a positive I tribute for her sincerity, her grace and [above all tor a pure, clear soprano that [suggests a wonderful wealth of music I yet to be heard. In I Fagltaoc, Luisa Darclee took the .part of Ned (la with a finely balanced sense of the requirements of the mu .ito and the play that was very fine. Tonla the down, was Impersonated [t>y Angelo Antola, while Salazar took the part of Cento, the deceived hus rfband. Baisser was again the domt rnant spirit In this opera ae In the I othsss while Antola made an exceed ingly clever Tonlo. Luigi DellcmoUe'z Silvio, the young farmer, who has conceived a swiftly requited passion for Nedda, had a good voice which hs used pleasingly. Luciano Rasslna was excellent In the role of the Harlequin. SPLENDID CHORUS. The chorus formed a melodious background for ths principals, render ing excellent support. Unusual charm In costuming and scenic effects was apparent» Carlo Terotrt as conductor wielded a baton which seemed slmost alive, so vigorous and yet so sensitive was It. The artists were liberal In respond ing to the encores which greeted them and gave of their talent generously. It was a warm, sympathetic audience, too. Just the kind of an audience .Urs are glad to sing for. The close nersonal feeling between artists and audience was clearly evident and it was difficult to determine which was the best pleased. Among the out-of-town music lovers who attended the opera wer. K. J. Sweeley and Mrs. Sweeley of Twin Falls, who are In town until Wednes day There were a number of others, beautiful, stately matrons, and fair young society girls In exquisite eve ning gowns, all frankly delighted with the music. Offenbach's singular fantasy, Tin Tales of Hoffman," follows last even ing's offerings In today's matinee, and this evening the opera of "Faust (Gounod), will be given. Stomach Troublss.

They act faster and the appearance of gray hail or baldhead in early years is, indeed often a sign of uric acid. The fac« appears lean and haggard, lines anc wrinkles appearing in young men 01 women. A The best way to combat this prema. ture age and the obstruction to the arteries and faulty circulation is of the simplest. Drink copiously of pure watei between meals. Obtain at any. drug »tore a small package of Anuric which is to be taken before meals, in order to expel the uric acid from the system. The painful effects of backache, lumbago, rheumatism, gout, due to uric acid in the blood should quickly disappear after treatment with Anuric.

The game department of the state was pressed into service and used all of Its activities toward making a typo graphical map of the state which is cry valuable, and Is the first map of ny of the states to be finished and has been turned over to the United States forestry department by order of the national government. The state health department lent valuable aid by having the head of this department, Dr. F. T. Biwer, go nto the different localities, where a I hyslclan was not available on the local board, and act In his profession al capacity in the examination of the drafted men. Various congressP« held throughout the United States for the purpose of disseminating new Ideas of hygiene have been attended by Dr. Biwer, and splendid results have been obtained i therefrom, which are now being em bodied In the work of this state. The livestock sanitary board of the state hns.givrn much aid in its atten tion to the conservation of the live stock Industry and the wiping out of dieeaee. In many instances it fur nished free of charge serum for the inoculation of hogs to keep down the hog cholera in communities that were not able to bear the expense. The wool industry of the state has been protected against disease by see ing that the sheep are dipped against scab so that all danger of disease among our livestock has been mini mised or entirely prevented by the care bestowed by the livestock depart ment, so we can say today that the state 1s practically irhmune from dis euse owing to the precautions taken and is furnishing its full share of the food supply in the shape of meat for the nation's meat. The year 1917 witnessed the chris tening of the battleship Idaho nt the New York Corporation shipyard at Camden, N.

RESERVE CORPS. The state government has received permission through Brigadier General barter of the national army to organ la*« four companies of 100 men each to be known as the reserve corps of the Second Idaho Infantry. The mobllizzntlon and recruiting of thee* four companies will be taken up at croc*, which will be, to a large ex tent, the army of the state govern ment In case of riots, insurrections and outbreaks of such naturfc that will occur throughout the state and which la beyond the control of the local au THE WAYWARD SON SITS AT THE BEDSIDE ACapyrisht, 1817, by ft.

The government promises to furnish clothing, equipment and as soon as the rush of equipping the regular army is over, no doubt the reserve corps will be equipped and to all appearances be like the regular army. The number of men that Idaho fur nished for the national army at the officers' training camp at the Pre sidio was as follows: Six captains, 28 first lieutenants, 2ft second lieutenants. A splendid showing, equal to that of any state according to its population. The state delivered for the first draft 2408 men at a cost of $3.8'» per man, making the expense of entraining a man the third smallest of any state In the Union. A great deal of the expense hereto attached was absorbed by the state, which has been very much appreciated by the national government. This is a patriotic act on the part of the state of Idaho and there have been only two other states that have done likewise. Some of the counties of the state have dene nobly, the whole expense of one of the counties in complying with the first draft was only $8.73, and that was tor clerical hire. Adjutant General Moody accompan ied the Second Idaho regiment to Gamp Greene. He looked after their welfare en route and bade them good-byé as the regiment was dissolved temporar ily and in place of the Idaho national guard were sworn in as members of the great army of the republic. The governor visited Gamp lapwis near Tacoma to see the Idaho boys who are wearing the khaki uniform of the nation. They were well and happy and I was proud of the class of men that the mothers of Idaho have sacrificed to their country's call. The second draft is now under way. the questionnaires are being sent out and everything being prepared so when the call is sent out, Idaho's quota of men desiganted for moblization will take place promptly. It is not yet known what the number will be and we will probably not know for several weeks. Since the call of the second draft was made, there have volunteered from the state of Idaho 695 men most of whom are now in Salt Lake awaiting, their turn to be mustered into the ser vice, they will be looked after, and if* their w-ants are not supplied, the stat! will take a hand in helping them until such time as the government will meet their requirements. The total number of men in Idah registered for military duty under th< draft is 41,689. leaving a reserve of 39,352 yet to be called under the régis t ration. Some of these of course will not pass physically and naturally will be ex empted and the amount of men that Idaho will have to furnish will not be definitely ascertained until the futur:* develops from time to time. The state government is ready for all emergencies and demands that the national government may require of us. Internally, it is at peace and ever., community is striving to do its utmost and all matters of state government aiv adjusting themselves to meet the new conditions of war. and the additional obligations to meet these new' condi tions of war. The extra, obligations to meet these new conditions are accepted by th * various departments of state govern ment with pride no matter what extra labor it may entail. The state board of examiners, con- j sisting of the governor, the secretary «»r I state, attorney general and Ptate aud itor. at a meeting held early in thp year resolved that whenever the necessit> should arise to issue deficiency war rants for the purpose of carrying on the activities of war. that the state 1 board of examiners will vote for the , allowance of same and the auditor will sign such deficiencies. We have had offers from many banks j throughout the state offering to tak IBftft or more of the deficiency war rants so that the activities of war will not be hindered. Wherever the state government has turned and has asked the co-operation of its citizens, morally and financially, it has met with a hearty response, and with that outburst of patriotism in Idaho, which no doubt is supplemented in all the other states of the union, the nation can bravely face the storm before it and look with perfect confi dence to the days of sunshine that are bound to -ome, when the banner of the Stars and Stripes shall come hack from th® soil of France victorious, hav ing accomplished its mission of crush ing out forever militarism and despot ism from the face of the earth, and the flag which we so dearly love shall not alone be recognized as the Stars and Stripes of America, but it will hr the emblem of deliverance and hope for the people of the world. as« PRISCILLA ■n ART r SHOP Moved Entire Stock -......-- TO : ................ 1009 MAIN ST iHFiiiimiiiiiiiuiiiiiin CLOSING OUT SALE Everything Goes at Wholesale Prices meusii SCHREIBER —AND SIDENFADEN UNDERTAKERS AND EMBALMERS Finest Undertaking Estab lishment and Funeral Chapel in the State Private Ambulance. 60#-611 Bannock St Phono 1tC ' y / Aw -J',«, \T\ w c.^r J 111 N. 9 ÎÎ Jt.
