Headed by one of the sweetest singing acts of the season, tlie new bill at the Princess is one of surpass ing interest. ”The Village Choir,” in troducing one of the most delightful numbers of vocal music, is made up of four people, two young gentlemen and two very good looking young la dies, namely. Edgar Allen, bass; Miss Henrietta Allen, Miss Bradbury, alto, and Mr. Arthur Thrasher, tenor There is a naturalness about their singing that is contagious. They seem to sing because of their genuine love for their work. Edgar Allen, the fel low with a handsome, good-natured face, his powerful sweet voice, will undoubtedly appeal to all. The two| young ladies at'e blessed with a per fectly soft voice and pleasing appear ance. The choir in their simple vil lage make-up present an act that is a positive triumph Iza Hampton & <7o has long been known as one of the best artists on the legitimate stage, because of her careful studied treatment of the char acters that have been entrusted to her care. In her latest vehicle, 'The Woman of Tomorrow,” a comedy sketch, Miss Hampton has by far the best part she has ever essayed, it is one of those sketches ad too scarce in vaudeville, that tells a story con sistently with the laughs and tears close together in forming an amusing whole. Dealing, as it does, with one of the most popular subjects of the present, it is sure to create a great deal of interest and amusement for those who see it. One of the best musical acts that lias ever been seen at the Princess will tie presented by the 'Musical Her alds, who will appear here next week. They show much skid ill handling the most difficult music producing in struments of all S' its. They deliver classical and popular selections with an appreciable quantity of expression that is often lacking in tlie average vaudeville musician. These two clev er artists play thirty-four mandolins at one tim.e This is an enitrely or iginal feature of their act and has never before been seen in vaudeville. It is the only instrument of its kind in the world and the Musical Ger alds are its originators. Joe Hardman, who styles himseif as the "dispenser of humorous com pounds," is certainly there in the line of laughable patter. He has a stock of humorous stories which he tel!* in his inimitable way, having earned front himself the salvos of applause in ah the larger vaudeville houses in the United States. Clever evolutions on bicycles of all sizes and shapes liberally interspers ed with wholesome comedy, are the features of the offering of the Cyc ling McNutts.
