PLAYHOUSES. "Faust" at ths Boyd. Presentation of Gounod's familiar opera, "Faust," under the direction of Rose Cselll Shay. Ths casti Faust ' ....Joseph Fredericks Mephlato . .Qeorga Shields Valuntlna Jamrs Kteveii9 Wagner.... v. ..... Matt Goodman Hlehel Mabel Campbell Martha Mabel Klar Marguerite Mary Carrlnglon There happens to be no feminine equiva lent for the expression' "Hamlet without Hamlet." so that nothing of .the sort can be said of the opening night of the Koae Cecilia Bhay Grand Opera company at the Boyd, without Rose Cecilia Shay. , Rut the feminine equivalent of the epigram - In tta flippant condemnation would be un just to the company which sang "Faust." Miss Shay had contracted such a cold In Denver that her physician positively re fused to allow her appearance, and for this reason "Faust," In which she does not sing, was substituted for "Carmen." .Nothing, new can be said of the music of "Faust" or of Its story. The sterling old score' of Gounod has been Interpreted In this city .many and many a time, and fey some of the greatest peoDle of the !! Otaga. And even more times It has feosn Been .here fitted with electrlo wiring In place of music. Two only of tho sing ers who appeared In the cast were with the company last year, theso being Joseph Fredericks and James Stevens. The changes are In. the main for the better, and Mr. Stevens has Improved noticeably since he sang here before. He has a bari tone of quality which he uses with taste and which was very pleasing In the music of Valentine,' the soldier brother of the unsophisticated Marguerite. His song In the second act, when he and the brave boys of Company I of Nuremberg are oft for .the wars, was particularly well sung. George 6hlelds as Mephlsto was entirely satisfying. His Is one of those rumbling bassos and he sang well throughout the piece. In solo and In trio and chorus. He In, In addition, possessed of equal dra matic) art with his singing ability snd, being long of limb and broad of chest, made an excellent devil for dramatic pur poses. His serenade of monkery in the fourth act was noticeable in his perform ance. Mr. Fredericks as the Faults senior snd Junior rose to his best work In the garden with Marguerite. He Is also blesaed with a conxlderable stage pres ence and a pair of legs such as Mophlsto would doubtless furnish to carry a man through such a campaign legs with pro truding muscles such as stage heroes In these prosalo days have such a time In acquiring. Ills voice Is not pleasing In the lighter pasasges. The finale of the first act, when the venerable Prof. Faust leaves his extra years in the check room and goes to the devil, wss well sung, and the several trios of Messrs. Shields, Ste vens and Fredericks were among the best of the music. Mary Carrlngton drew applause for her Marguerite she looked the part and she has a pleaslnfs soprano voice of consider able range and of sympathetic quality. Her song In the garden with the chest full of property Jewels and the mirror doing the chorus brought reward of hand clap ping, as did also her coquetry. She dis played considerable dramatic ability through the wooing of Faust. The management has borrowed a trick from the comic opera stage In the woman lover In small clothesquite small, and high up. Frof. Faust's academy for young la flics, to Judge by the appearance of tho stage during the ensembles, must have been a very select school, one of the kind where the tuition fees are high enough so that the tutors do not have to take many pupils. The people of Nuremberg also in their army seemed to feel that a few good men could do the work. The presentation of grand opera Is rather difficult. There Is nothing but the voices to consider that Is with the or dinary company which gets this far west. There are no Jokes, or dances, or special ties, and the lyrlo setting retards the action and makes the dramatic Illustra tion of the story difficult and unnatural. To those who are not really of tho muslo devouring kind, the spectacle Is as Mark Twain found It In Beyreuth, one or two persons standing about on the stage and catching Mies. But there are the muslo devouring kind.

GnUla Cook, a girl of 16, rooming at "Wty North Sixteenth street, committed suicide last night by swallowing carbolic acid. The girl had been despondent for some time, owing to continued Illness, and hnd repeatedly vowed to take her life She walked across the street to a drug store In company with a man named Hans Timm, who knew she had bought carbolic acid, but as she seemed to be in good spirits he never suspected anything. After taking the poison she threw her arms about the neck of Mrs. Folly Taylor and seemed to be trying to speak, but could not. The police surgeons were notified at 10:10 p. m. and hurried to the scene, but they were too late to save the girl's life and she died while they were working over her. Pho has no relatives living in Omaha, but has a mother In Smith Center. Kan., from whom she received a letter yes terday: From the tone of the letter It soeuis that the mother knew little about the girl's suffering by sickness or any in tentions of her daughter to commit suicide. Coroner Uralley took charge of tho re mains. Anna Cohen, a German woman living at 11U Sherman avenue, attempted to take her own life by hanging herself last night. while temporarily Insane. The woman Is about 65 yeara old and cannot speak word of tZnglish, and between her sobs and waitings told Captain Hase her story In Gorman. According to her story, It seems that her rent of 110 was due and she was unable to meet it. Her husband, who works lu the smelter, she said, had 130. but was spending it In drink with another woman, the gut despondent over the state of affairs and tried to kill herself. She was. cut down by Detective Moloney and Officer Murphy, who happened to be near the scene at the time, and hearing of the attempt, rushed In and found the woman clumsily trying to hang herself with a sheet fastened to the bedpost.

TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS PRICE PAID Corporation Prossiri Erecting Barns and Repair shops Costing Fifty Thousand Dollars on This Bite. The city council has authorised the sale to the l. V. Sholes company for 15,000 of four lots numbered 7 to 10 Inclusive, In block 29. of Wilcox's second addition, the location being at Twenty-fourth and Vinton streets. It has developed that these lota are to become the property of the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway company, which will erect upon them the new $50,000 car barns and repair shops announced some time ago. The location was then given as Sixteenth snd Vinton streets, and the deal with tb city has been kept very quiet. In order to obtain the lots It was necessary for the city to declare part of the boulevard vacated, but no difficulty was encountered in doing this, as the park board recommended It because the route of the boulevard wss changed after tho lots were acquire!, leaving them unused. The board went so far as to1 ask the city to vacate the property so far as boule vard use was concerned. At the time the land was bought by condemnation pro ceedings $1,800 was paid for It. so on the face the city nets a profit of $200. Minority Report Approved. In connection with the appraisement of the lots, however, the members of the appraising bourd, consisting of Council man Huntington, J. K. Van Gilder and M. J. Grevy differed. The two latter, com posing a majority, recommended a price of $.1.0110 for. the property, while Council man Huntington submitted a minority re port calling for $2,00. The majority re port was ignored entirely and the recom mendation of the minority member ap proved. Only the signature of Mayor Moores Is needed to consummate the deal. A city officer who favored tho sale for $2,f00 said: "I think $2,000 Is a reasonable price for the land as the city only paid $1,800 for It. With the car barns upon It valued at $50,000, a large amount of taxes will be derived for the city each year. We could almost afford to give the land to the street railway company in view of the improve ments to be made and the additional tax ation to be gained." WILL FIGHT FOR CURB SIGNS Merchants Propose to Orxanlse nnd Resist Movement Against Street Displays. The merchants of OmaTia who own curb ing signs will meet in the Commercial club this evening to form an organization to fight tho order which requires them to take down these signs within two weeks, "This cly is not like Chicago or New York," said A..-.: Mandelberg. "There is no such crowds on our streets that the room . of these signs Is needed by the people. The signs have been ordered down In Chicago, but we think there is no necessity for doing so In Omaha. There are some rough board signs of course, which are not pleasing to look at, but a nice sign Is an improvement to a street. The illuminated signs help make the streets light 'Srid cheerful at night. "When wo received theso notices from the city ordering us to have our signs down In two weeks we did not think wo should be required to do so. We have no organization now, but we sent out notices and will organize to fight the order. The objectionable signs we will take means to improve and the others we will keep If we can. (We intend to employ a good at torney and fight the matter." WORLD'S FAIR TRAINS START Specials Drain Regular Trips to St. Loots Sunday Large Crowds in Exposition City. Tho new World's fair tram to be put on by the Missouri Pacific will make Its first trip out of Omaha for St. Louis Sunday. The train leaves this city at 6:30 p. m. and arrives In St Louis at S:30 tho follow ing morning. Travel by the Wabash, Missouri Pacific and Burlington is reported heavy In the direction of tho World s Fair city at this time, but It Is said that few sightseers are going. Tho passengers are principally persons who are going to St. Ixuis in search of positions during the exposition. Tom Hughes, traveling passenger agent of the Missouri Paclnc, who was in St. Louis recently, reports that there are largo crowds at present and that soma of the hotels are taxed to the utmost to accom modate their patrons at this time. Judg ing from this Mr. Hughes thinks It will be a hard matter to secure accommodations during the exposition unless they are on- gaged in advance. It is expected that vis- itors to the fair will begin to leave as soon as the weather settles and the report la sent out that the fair Is not in anywhere near a completed condition.
