By request, Mrs. W. A. McAllis
ter gives us some impressions of the
great musical event recently at Oma
ha: "Tbe Queen of song has come
and gone, and those who beard ber
may feel that a rare favor ha-? been
icccided them. Patti, br cutnpan)
' artists, her singing, ber jewel?, al'
are near perfection. Omaha has
never before known such a musical
event, and tbe diva herself, has rarely
smiled upon such an audience as
greeted her at the Exposition build
ing. More than live thousand
persons assembled at tbe maic name
of Patti, in whom there seems to be
realized all musical possibilities. Her
voice is a pure, rich soprano, run
ning as high as F in alt., with won
derful carrying power, capable of ex
ecuting perfectly the most difficult
and rapid runs, turns, and all feats
relating to musical ornamentation.
She has been known to execute a
perfect trill, continuing for seven
teen bars. The sustaining power of
ber voice is wonderful. With her
tbe simplest song becomes a gem;
her 'Home Sweet Home' holds any
audience spellbound. In addition to
ber vocal perfections, she possesses
rare beauty of person, and a cul
tivated mind. She speaks fluently
Euglieb, Spanish, Italian, French and
German, and is perfectly at home in
opera roles, iu any of the above lan
guages. Her costumes and jewelB
are buperb. On her evening at Oma
ha she wore diamonds rich and rare
enough for a king's ransom, as well
as jeweled medals, and badges of
distinction, from the late Russian
Emperor, Napoleon III, Eugenie, the
Queen of the Belgians, and the King
of tbe Sandwich Islands. She is
worthy tbe support she now has.
Mme. Scalcbi is a grand contralto.
Her lower notes are rich as the tones
of a grand organ. Every one knows
of Galassi, the Italian baritone, and
Guille, aud Novaro are equally as
fine. Tbe orchestra is composed of
nearly fifty pieces, with Signor
Carrano as solo flutist. In an ac
companiment with Patti it was dif
ficult to distinguish voice from in
strument. Arditti, of world-wide
fame, is leader. Trnly such a com
bination of stars will not soon again
beam upon us."
The latest fraud scheme against
tbe unwary is to send out blanks
asking for crop reports from farmers
for publication. At tbe end where
comes the farmer's signature to what
ho supposes is a very innocent and
commendable report of tbe pro
ducts of his farm, is a very in
geniously contrived piece of printing
which, properly cut away, leaves a
promissory note with tbe farmer's
good name which will soon confront
him in tbe bands of a note-broker at
tbe next village. A pretty good way
these times is to sign notbiug that
you don't absolutely know is ail
The fence-post man has been
"working" his scheme on a Polk
county farmer, getting bis note for
$200"; afterwards, getting sober
enough to know, and being informed
by a friend of the nature of the
transaction, be induced tbe swindler
to return tbe $200 note by his pay
ing him $50 cash. Citizens calling
themselves respectable, so says tbe
Clark's Messenger, aided the swindler
Hazleton to escape arrest for swind

The Bachaaaa Comedy Co.
Monday evening this Company
opened their week's engagement here
with the celebrated play "Fancbon,
the Cricket," to a pleased audience.
It would reera a? though the public
would never tire of this piece, umi
certainly, as pl&j ed by this troupe, it
is like a good picture, new beauties
being seen each time. Tbe leading
character, Fanchon, as presented by
Maud Howe, is a study in human
nature, and tbe vivacious actress
truly holds the glass to nature in
every part of ber delineation of the
S. C. Hnnt, as Father Barboaud, is
an unmixed success in the irascible
old farmer, who raves and storms,
but is finally brongbt to time by tbe
Cricket. Good as Hunt was years
ago, he is improving in bis portrayal
of character on the stage.
Didier, the younger twin, per
sonated by Buchanan, is a uuique
production for which the talented
actor seems to have a very special
faculty. The peculiar affection he
has for his elder brother, aud the
utter subordination of bis own feel
ings to bis, could not be better de
lineated, while the sallies which
every once in a while "break tbe
audience all up" are inimitable, as
when Father Barbeaud, after raviug
and storming at everybody, closes by
a burst of indiguatiou intended to
squelch all opposition Do you think
I'm au old fool?, Didier drawls out,
Say yes, Maw.
The other and subsidiary parts
were all well roudered. Tho troupe
throughout do excellently well, aud
those who listen to advance them
selves in the study of human nature
will be well repaid for their time and
money ,in the instruction and amuse
ment which these artistes afford.
One of the pleasant features of the
evening was a cornet solo by Ed.
Buchanan showing great power over
