She showed a true jndmtanding of what she was staging, and imagination and a real icnie of style. Her place Is secure u one of the greatest singers of tto ay- Tba program, which was eom oHd for the most part of songs in I foreign language, opened with two Hsndel numbers. Arioso from Cantata con Stromenti, and "Sweet Bird" from II Persieroso. She dis played her middle range work to tdrutage in the first number and rtcetved hearty applause. In tbe Heoni of the group Miss Hempel tug ta Ante accompaniment, and her trilling was absolutely true. Eipecially creditable was the ex treme high note, which one could not possibly distinguish from the dear note of the flute. And there ns no sign of effort nor a single taiCfler ascension work showed to silTsntage. An encore was de ainiied and she responded with a atchy, simple song which everyone liked. Next came a group of French by Rameaa. m .h. .T .. wmm numoer was Gul tares et Mandolines by Saint-Saens. and OU could fair! .h. . tlM Inttramtata la her staccatL The nr, iut retei Gslantes, Hahn, waa vanr arartw . - ..7Z number mat aha sang in her lowest ""- 1M iast and beat nntnhsr 1? fJBHCB La Fee Chansons, Bamberg waa drmmatwiiv .- dared.

The itnnv mmnlAtsW got her audience in this pretty old uamoer ana sang with every pos sible ounce of feeling. Conrad V. Boa. tbe famous Dutch accompanist who supported Hiss Hempel so beautifully in all her aonga, gave a group of area num bers and reaponded to an encore. The best number was Chopin's waltz in O flat, a beautifully phrased number which Mr. Bos brought out splendidly. The greatest part of Miss Hem pel's coloratura work waa display ed in the Mosart-Adam Grand Aria TW Bravura, "A voux diras-Je Ha inan," as interpolated by the singer in "The Daughter of tbe Regiment." She again sang to flute accompani ment so perfectly and with such ability that one marveled that it was really a human voice singing and sot the notes and thrills of a bird. . One does not doubt the state ment made by the singer herself that she will soon be able to trill two minutes, after having heard her sine this number. And "Dixie" the encore, had all the martial tread which the number requires and was so well liked that another encore was given, "My Jernshie," another simple song for which Miss Hempel is as famed as for her heavier numbers.
