Jrae. c=======:—^ —2 o —- — o Corinne is a delight to the eye, a pleas ure to the car, and is just now In the Cull bloom of budding young- wjnia;:lu>od, and rich in experience of years of artistic <ls velopment. Her greatest need has been heretofore a proper vehicle in which to display her actual worth. This, however, she has found in "The Little Host," a musical cotaedy of va'.ue. The b ;ok is by Edgar. Smith and. Louis De Lange, au thors of wide reputation, who have sup plied Weber and Fields with the bur lesque satires that have made their New York Music hall famous. The score It by W. T. Francis, a composer of many tuneful productions. Musical comedy re quires a company of artists, lyric as well as dramatic artists, a thorough and well drilled corps of choristers, and a lavish outlay of sceneiy and costumes, for the eye must be appealed to equally with tha ear. All these requisites have been fur nished Corinne,. and she is now placed properly before her admirers. Her com pany includes forty people, among whom are R. E. Graham, Louis De Lange, John J. Raffael, Ruth White, Geneyieve Rey nolds and Emily Francis, with a number of other capable artists, including the Keystone quartette. That Corinne's ad vent at the Metropolitan, in this ci:y, this evening, will be a theatrical red let ter night, it can hardly be doubted. The engagement is for four nights and Wednesday matinee.

Dramatization of Marie Corelli's Novel at the Grand. Love of the dramatic element has been natural in the human race since time was young. The most widely read novels are those that are strongest in the dra matic element, such as "Phroso," "The Prisoner of Zenda," "A Tale of Two Cit ies" \n& a score of others that have been the theatrical successes of the -past few seasons. The latest of these in tensely dramatic works of fiction to be prepared for the stage is Marie Corelli's "Sorrows of Satan," originally produced with great success at the Shaftsbury theater, London, and now for the first time touring this country. Its story is not only dramatic in the extreme, but audaciously novel and orig#al. Certain ly nothing has appeared in recent fic tion more dramatic or unique than this figure of Satan, a distinct personality, living on earth, scrupulously modern in his dress, received by men as a mortal like themselves, yet realizing himself that he is the "Son of the Morning,' . who once sat at the right hand of the heavenly throne. And the character given him in the story and the play is equally revolutionary. He is pictured not as a fiend, gloating over the crimes of men and fall of women, but as a former angel, whose proud boast in heaven condemns him to tempt men to evil while longing for the perfect purity of the whole race, knowing that when all men turn from evil he, too, will be again admitted to his lost place. The story attempts to remove the old time horrors associated with the name of devil and his fiery kingdom, which thg drawings- of Dore have made so plainly realistic, and few are averse to being convinced that the devil is not so black as he is painted, or that Hades is not so uncomfortably heated as It has been believed. William A. Brady is the American producer of the "Sorrows of Satan," the tour of which is under the management_ of Arthur C. Alston. Its first presentation here, tonight at the "SATAN'S FETE," From "The Sorrows of Satan," at the Grand. Grand opera house, will doubtless call forth a large and expectant audience. Miss Corelli's readers in this city are more than sufficient in numbers to till the theater, while those who have not read her book will be attracted by ona of the most out-of-the-way and interest ing subjects exploited on the stage In many a day, aided by elaborate scenery and a capable cast. The stellar role is in the hands of Charles Kent, a favorite in this city through his excellent work in the Neill stock company for several seasons.4 Others /in the long cast are Emily Dodd, Marie Curtis, Runa Mort land, Katherine de Barry, Ross O'Neal, Frank Roberts, Cecil Magnus, Basil West, Geo.

Maitland in "Toll Gate Inn," as played by David Murray, i? an ideal American hero. He is a Vermonter and a colonel of a regiment in the Continental army made t;p of the Green Mountain boys; and as easily distinguishable by his siaiure as was Ethan Allen. One can fancy "Just such a mar. ap David Murray doing exactly what Ethan Allen did when he went right into the British commander's bedroom at 'JMconderoga and proclaimed his mission In the famous words: •'"ln the name of the great Jehovah and the Continental con gress, I command you to surrender." Allen was a giant, co Is Murray. Tee author has woven a beautiful love story around this hero and has given him es noble and beautiful a heroine to love as he Is hero. This heroine is being played by a splendid actress, Sylvia Bid-2 veil.- She, like he, is all life and love and devotion and self-denial, and through it all and above all they both are the liberty loving people which characterized the rugged, healthy, hearty people of Vermont In their struggle for mdc- pendence. There Is also a character in the play, a half-breed of French and In dian parentage, which, as played by John B. Weeks, is said to be one of the strongest characters this country has seen in years.

The arrangement has just been con- Fummated by Oscar Vanderbilt, of the Northern Pacific railroad. Mr. White side will be seen almost, exclusively as Hamlot. His entire company and com plete scenic production of Shakespeare's romantic tragedy will be given. It is said that the receipts played to by Mr. Whiteslde in "Hamlet" this season have been phenomenal and it would seem safe to predict that the same meas ure of success will attend his coming tour through this portion of the country. Mr. Whiteside has for a number of years been accepted as the popular Ham let of this generation, and those whc have witnessed his powerful and mag netic impersonation of the Prince of Den. mark are most enthusiastic in praise of hie efforts, and indeed it becomes a pleas, ure to chronicle the unqualified financial success of an actor of Shakespearean roles In these-days when the stage would appear to be given up to much that is vapid, and in some instances unfit for presentation. •• The week of Feb. 12, Mr. Whiteside win be seen in Faribauit, Mankato, St. Cloud and Winnipeg. Week of Feb. 10, in Graf ton, Grand Forks, Far-go, Crookstou, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls. COMING ATTRACTIONS.

The mother is a most interesting, as well as one of the best financial managers to be found, and the success of the daughter Leonora's career has been due largely to the mother's untiring energy and care over the mental as well as physical welfare of the girl. All who heard Miss Jackson play on Thursday evening were at once drawn toward the brother accompanist, whose artistic work and complete sym pathy in his sister's work made the pair at once the object and center of ad miration. The trio left on Friday morn ing, en route for New York city, where Miss Jackson is to appear in the Sunday evening concert at Carnegie hall. * • « A gala concert for the Dewey arch fund was given Tuesday evening at Car negie hall, New York, the entire pro ceeds going to the Dewey arch fund. A galaxy of stars gave the programme, and, besides Walter Damrosch'a Manila Te Deum, sixteen soloists and oratorio so- j ciety and orchestra, the "Inflammatus" from Rossini's "Stabat Mater," sung by Mme. Nordica; "Prize Song," by Edmund de Reszke, and the "Queen," by Weber, was sung by Mme. Gadski. JSvan Williams was the tenor to a quartette of four voices any one of which would be a drawing card and musical feature in it self. Admiral and Mrs. Dewey graced the occasion and were seated in one of the proscenium boxes. .... - * * » Richard Wagner died too soon, the New"" York World says. He was denied i the great joy of hearing his music sung j as he wished it should be sung. In his j generation his interpreters were all in error. He knew it, but he had to accept } them or else keep his manuscripts in his I library for the dust to cover them. He never despaired, though, and in his in nermost thoughts was convinced that the day would' come when Justice would be done to his great works. He was right The pioneers of Wagner ian singers have passed away. One or two are left, invalids who can hardly re alize that their successors are doing things" which they did not believe were possible. There is a new generation of Wagner artists —men and women—who are confounding with object lessons the theorists who denied to the master's music its melodic quality and the pos sibility of its vocal formulation within the general rules of musical art. * * * The white dove of peace Is still flut tering at the opera house. There has never been such a season of cordiality and fraternity. The Hague convention was nothing to the operatic situation. Prime donne applaud one another, exchange calls, compliments and gifts and actually become partners in concerts. It was a happy idea that led to the collaboration of Nordica and Schumann- Helnk. Their concert was a success in every way. There ought to be other such joinings of voices and talents. There is one which suggests itself—Eames and Sembrich. That would be a concert worth attending. * * * "Ganymed." Louis V. Saur's setting, of Goethe's, allegorical poem, will be sung by Mme. Schumann-Heink at the Cin cinnati musical festival.
