THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: MAY 30, 1D09.
What is Going: On MAHA has fairly entered on- the summer season so far as amuse ments are concerned. Manawa has openr-d and Courtlarid Beach will follow, and these will care for the folks who look for boating nd bathing alone with muslo and some lighter diversions. Krug park will be missed, hot the people who took their pleasure among; Its trees and flowers will find somewhere to go. The Woodward stock company at the Boyd will continue to provide well for those who do not care to Journey to the outskirts of the city to find a park. This organisation Is In all respects the best that has ever held forth In summer time In Omaha. Manager Hu man has arranged his Atrdome so that, rain or shine, he can give performances, and when the weather Is favorable he -lll provide excellent entertainment In the open air. Then the picture shows at the liurwood, the Krug and the Innumerable other places about the city will pursue and overtake the fleeing nickel and fugi tive dime, so that all who da not care to til around the house U the 'evening will be sure of a place to go. And the regular patrons of the theaters may confidently look forward to the beet year Omaha has ever known when the theaters open their doors next fall. With the Shuberts In con trol of the Ptirwnod. we are sure to get the best that may be had. It is the not result of competition. And the new Bran dels Is romlsed to be- open January 1, 11110, which adds to the pleasure of the prospect So the summer will soon pass. PRETTY WOMEN WITH CIRCUS Haarrnbeck-WaJlare Shows Make Specialty of Feminine Beast y. "Who ever saw a handsome woman within a circus ring, anyway?" has been common expression of people leaving a circus tent. In fact, the average circus "lady artist" generally, when stripped of her spangles and ring makeup and ap pealing In unprofessional dress, has been considered a fright sufficient to scare- bad children Into being good. This season, however, If reports be truo, no such re- ' marka will be made when folks depart from tho big tent of the Hagenbeck-Wallace shows. lien Wallace has a national reputation for carrying with his show the finest horses, and now he has gone a step farther In matters of attractiveness by In cluding among his score of women per formers only those who are endowed with ' attractive countenances, handsome figures and graceful action. In the past the stage has monopolized pretty women and rich costumes, but at present In the circus ring, especially with the Hagenbeck-Wallaco shows, the tendency Is to employ only pretty women and such as have the happy faculty of appearing richly gowned In spite of the hot and active work required twice dally. These women no longer ap pear In tights, except where the nature of the work actually requires It, but they are handsomely dressed In truly elegant ex amples of the modiste's art, and the dis play of lingerie equals that seen upon the stage of the musical comedy of the day or In the trousseau of one of New York's "400" on het bridal trip. In fact. It Is probable that these circus women, of whom the Ilagenbeck-Wallace shows boasts would have a pretty good chance In a beauty con test And why should not the circus woman equal or excel her' neighbor of the stage In looks or dress? She is far better paid than the chorus or "show girl," and her salary Is frequently ten times that of ihe average man. Not only does she recolve a better salary, but the accommodations In her career have been greatly Improved, and Instead of riding in boxcars, shp now enjoys the comforts of home In a cosy apartment sleeping car of the Pullman pat tern, while the accommodations In the dressing tent are far superior to the aver age green room of the stage. The Hagen-beck-Wallace shows' trains now contain seven sleepers, four of which are auottea to women. As the Several feature acts are Introduced by the orators of the Hagenbeck-Wallace shows there Is invariably heard a mumble of voices throughout the crowd, all remarking as regards "those gowns" or "ain't she pretty," or "ain't that fine." It Is really an innovation for clrous performers to be thus presented to the pub lic, but It is a welcome change from the loud, coarse and sometimes disgusting ex hibitions of the past The attractiveness of the costumes and the genuine beauty of the performers Is only excelled by the grace and novelty of the acts done, so that the spectator Is unconsciously forced to shift his or her admiration to the more Im portant thing the act Itself. A panoramic view about the dressing room would be a revelation to the unini tiated. The convenience and comfort en Joyed would be a surprise. The women will be found doing all sorts of fancy work, or sewing an unwelcome rip, or perhaps deftly . arranging an old costume. In al most every trunk may be found some of the latest and best books, white the late magaslnes are much In evidence. A dress ing tent Is the sitting room of -the clrous family and the same air of domesticity pre vails as at thS average fireside. It Is In the quietness of their section of the big dressing tent that the petite circus queens enjoy their social chats and here they congratulate or sympathise with each other as the cas may be. One of the secrsts for the hardiness of their muscular devel opment Is that these circus women take cold water baths twice daily In their dress ing tent, otherwise the hot work and activ ity of the ring would make about as quick a finish of them as it does of their ward robe, which they are constantly renewing. THIS WEEK AT OMAHA THEATERS "My Wife" at the Boyd ' and Mary Mannerln? Burwood. "My Wife," a comedy in three acts from the French of Messrs. Gavault and Char nay, adapted by Michael Norton, will be the bill for the third week of the Wood ward Stock company at the Boyd theater, beginning with a matinee on Bunduy after noon. The production Is under the per sonal direction of Mr. Woodward, and as the settings give opportunity for rich In terior display, the stage la sure to look very attractive. It Is the first bill that will give the ladles an opportunity to appear In the dress of fashion, and Miss Lang will display some beautiful gowns, while the other women folks . of the cast will put some very handsome costumes on view. The story ia unique In conception, and Is worked out with much good comedy effect. Gerald Everslelgh, played by Al Vbert Morrison, has been, the guardian of Beatrice Dupree, played by Miss Lang, and has married her to thwart the scheme of some of her relative to gt her Inher itance away from her.. It Is understood that at the proper time ha will step aside to allow her be married to the inan he Is engaged to. Ben yianderes. a young Frenchman, played by'Franli Rentthorne. Flandcrea has been sent on a tour ef the world, and Is detained as a prisoner some where. Everslelgh discovert that he really loves his wife, who has been wife In name only, and is about to make a declaration of this love when young Flandarea turn up. The comedy flows from the fact that y the young man U as anxious to get out of have htm, though, the fact is not known to either. Tlialr cross purposes lead to a number of very funny situations.- one of the most delightful being that in which they a-Tee to settle the damafiea, aud each draws a check payable to the other, think ing he Is the one entitled to pay. But the affair Is finally cleared up satisfactorily. The company Is well placed In the cast. The first performance will be at the Sun day matinee and the bill will run oil wee!;, with matinees on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Mary Mannering romes to the Burwood theatre next Thursday, Friday and Satur day In her latest success, "The Indepen dent Miss Oower, a three act comedy from the pen of Emma Beatrice Brunncr. The story concerns the doings of some mem bers of the fashionable set, and shows the result of the Independence of a spoiled child and of her Innocent but foolish acts. The scenes are lajd In the Berkshires, amid a fashionable summer colony. The first act Is the library of a wealthy New Torker, and the second and third shows an artist's studio. Miss Mannering Is sur rounded by a company of exceptionally prominent players. Iter leading man Is White Whittlesey, who has Just closed a two years' engagement with Julia Mar lowe In a similar capacity. Others in the cast are Helen Macbeth, Robert Conness, Dodson Mitchell, Louise Sydmeth, Louise Rial, Carol Elliott Louise pempsey, Mary Nash, James Spottlswood, James A. Dick son and Manton Chambers. The Messrs. Bhubert have given their star a beautiful and artistic scenic equipment, and especial attention has been given to the appropri ateness of even the most trivial dotail. This Is Miss Mannerlng's first visit to Omaha In several season. There will be a matinee Saturday. The produotlon to e offered at the Air Dome for the coming week is a western melodrama. In five acts, entitled "For His Mother's Honor." The plot of the play is laid lit the Black Hills of South Dakota, about ten years after the Custer massacre. The play deals with the efforts of one Howard Nelson to secure possession of some valuable property In the Black Hills belonging to Colonel Fairfax and his son, Dick, and his attempts to avenge a fancied wrong done his fattier by Mrs. Fairfax. In the first act Nelson succeeds In getting - . . About Music, Musicians and Musical Events HE annual crop of pupil's recitals sVY 1 is In full growth ojid the I I teachers are presenting recital uLier rcuitai 111 uruer iu snow what has been done during the past year. Every week brings announcements of these events to this department of The Bee, and the list of those "aspiring to be some what" In the musiacl world Is very formid able this season. - As to the value of these pupils' recitals there has been much discussion and dif ference of opinion. The case would seem to be settled as to the planlstlc side of the question, but as to the vocal side there Is much to be said against the pupils' recital. After weighing the matter over, seriously, and after giv ing auch affairs, and then, for a season or two, not giving them, and repeating the process, the writer has formed some fairly decided views upon the question. Now, In tho case of pianoforte teachers and students, this fact may be given due consideration, namely, that while a tal ented pupil will always show more ability than an untalented one, yet the results of patient persistent work will be notice able in the less favored pupil, even In spite of the apparent absence of talent or tem perament Why? Because the instrument Is the same identical Instrument In each case. Of course. It Ulilsely that the piano teachers will all disagree with this, and will proclaim that tone qualities, and fin esse, and all that sort of thing enter Into the matter so thoroughly that the question of the Instrument becomes secondary. From the exact pedagogical standpoint this may be correct: but nevertheless It must be remembered that the audience at a pupils' recital is not composed of peda gogues, nor is It made up of people who have such rare discriminating ears that they can tell the various differences In tone-quality produced by the players. In the pianoforte recital the Instrument played upon is the same for each and every student That is the main point But in the vocal recital It Is entirely dif ferent Each pupil presents a different In strument To one nature has given a beautiful, "elastic" voice; to another, a voice full of color; to another, a voice of great range or compass; to another a voice full of tears aitd emotional possibility; to another a voice of much natural dramatic possibility. To others, voices which are good but full of defects; to one. a voice with a dull finish; to another, a voice of much breathinaua; to another, a voice very susceptible to "tremolo;", to another, a voice which Is naturally hard and unattrac tive; to another, a voice which is by nature "throaty," and so on. Now what chance has an audience to discriminate and to bestow its praise upon the one who has done the "best work" of the program. It Is utterly impossible that there should be any such chance, and so the audience, regardless of any attempt to consider the "singing" of the pupil, promptly gives its unqualified praise and applause to the one who has the best natural voice, and who may be-and prob ably la the moat Indifferent and most careless one in the whole class of studejils. Thus negligence Is encouraged to coii tlnae in negligence, and the serious worker la discouraged. Many a hardworklus earnest ttludent who really sinaa well. hu. complained "Nobody wants to hear me sins;,-' becauso someone more gifted by nature and less pauieular in work, bos overshadowed her in publio appreciation or even in the homo circle. But mark! Some ut the greatest singers we have heard or read of have bean those who have gone through Just this" experi ence.

But she did not Her biography U enough to draw tears of sympathy and of Indignation from anyone who has a spark of real genuine feeling.

Dick and his tenderfoot friend, Bobby Birch, later succeed In trapping Nelson's gang, but fail to get him, hut he Is captured by old Flocum, the stage driver, while at tempting to rob the Fairfax home after the move to Frisco, and the play ends happily for all. Mr. Hillman will be seen as Dick. Mr. McDermld as Nelson, Mr. Hicks as the tenderfoot, Mr. Manning as the colonel, Mr. Saoray as the ataire driver, Mr. Dale as Ben Clay, Nelson's right-hand man; Miss Hayes as "Jack." Miss Lee as Dick's sweetheart and Miss Miller as Mrs. Fairfax. The smaller characters will all be handled by competent people. On Sunday, June ! the Burwood will open Its annual display of motion pictures not the same high grade and edifying exhibition that made thousands of people attend moving picture exhibitions' for the first time, but, Instead, a display that will far out-distance last season's exhibition. It has remained for the Burwood manage ment to secure the first of the really new contrivances ever brought to Omaha. The machines in question are made In France, the French In this one particular being far in advance of any of the American manufacturers. The coat of these French machines Is about equal to that of three of the machines now In use in the rank and file of moving picture houses. Much has been said of the big, new feature that Is to bo offered In connection with the picture entertainment, but the Burwood management still has the secret up Its sleeve and will only disclose the known fact that this new feature that everyone Is conjecturing over will be Installed at an expense of $5,000, and that It la posi was tried to the quitting point he never quit: and today David Bisham Is an idol of the American musical public throughout the length and breadth of this very long and very broad land. The "golden bowl" of Caruso Is, wo are told, temporarily "broken," but the "sil ver bowl" of Bond is still "unloosed." Yet, a few years ago, Bonci was unknown as compared to Caruso. (Of course the lat ter fact still holds good In unmusical cir cles and unmusical places.) Let the less glftedpupll take to heart the historical and established fact that the phenomenal voices, the wonderful voices do not, as a rule, hold out. The comet Is a brilliant member of the solar system, but It docs not last long. The writer has known and observed for many years that the unusually beautiful voice with a minus quantity of brain, has never finally won out In a comparison with the minus quantity of voice and an abundant supply of brain. Nature often does queer things, but she Is generally bound by the law of Compensa tion. Often the person with a good, rich voice is notably deficient In brain power And again, frequently when one meets a person gifted with the exceptional voice and a good intelligence combined, there Is the great tendency to reject criticism and to invite flattery; result-obllvlon: it may be postponed oblivion, but oblivion never theless, sure, stern and certain. The Law of Compensation. Just as often, however, one sees the per son with the Bmall amount of vocal gift, earnestly desirous to do what can be done! acquire not only an art and a power of singing, but also gain a great deal in nat ural beauty of voice. The eastern part of this country was visited tills season by a very famous singer, Dr. Wuellner, and he was adver tised, in some places as "The singer with out a voice." That, of course, was not true, but It goes to show that the voice Itself did not command supreme attention. However, this man, this artist of tones, created a greater sensation in the musical circles of the east than any singer who has been heard here for years. If he comes back next season, go and hear him, if you can. You will be repaid. But to return to the thought of the pu pils' recital. Suppose one could choose the finest voice of his class of students, and then suppose It were possible that each student should be able to sing with that voice, or, in other words, to play upon that same instrument then you would have a pupils' recital which would be a delight, and in whicli you could form good and possibly correct Judgment. But with this one foundation missing. It seems that it ought to appear reasonable to tho or dinary reader that a pupils' recital of students of singing is an entirely different affair from a recital of planforte students. To be sure, someone may dispute this, and Mate that pupils who have not natu rally good voices should not be encouraged to take up singing. That sounds plausible. A medical friend spoke along this line In a discussion of the subject some weeks ago, but the answer given to him was the same as the state ment made now, that If such a course had been adopted some of the best singers of the world would have been "mute and In glorious." Some of the best singers of to day would be unknown. Some of the singers of Omaha who give much pleasure and enjoyment, would have been silent forever. Here again lies a vast difference. The Instrument at the pianoforte recital is the same, whether played upon by a boy of 10, or a young woman of 21 But the voice? Ah, that Is another thing. That Instrument Is being built. The "first year" pupil shows an Instrument which will be tremendously Improved upon and perfected, when that pupil Is a "third" or "fourth year" pupil. At a vocal recital each performer plays upon an Instrument which Is "being- created." At a piano re cital each performer plays upon a finished and perfect Instrument. , t . These are the principal reasons why the present writer, writing from the standpoint of a voice teacher, abandoned the pupils' recital Idea. He has acted on the assumption (which was also stated last week to htm by one of the leading piano teachers of Omaha) that if a person sings well and sings any where in public or seml-publlo, people will find out who his teacher Is, and thereby the teacher will not lose anything by his abstention from the public recital. But there are other view-points, and thoae will be perhaps taken up later; suf fice It now to say that the writer is not bound by a fixed prejudice in the matter, but believes that puplU should have some experience in public, or setul-puUla wwk. j tively brand new In Idea and material, Insofar as any Omaha theater Is con cerned. On Sundays the exhibition will run continuous from 1 p. m. until 11 p. m. ; week days from 1 to 5 p. m. and 7 to 11 p. m As before, the entire program will be changed on Sundays and Thursdays, the performance being of about an hour and a half duration. SOCIETY STOPS FOR BREATH (Continued from Second Page.) son and they will probably vlalt Omaha In the fall. Mrs. Elliott of New York arrived this week to be the guest of Dr. and Mrs. J. J. McMullen. Dr. J. S. Goets left yesterday for a stay of about three weeks in St Louis and Hot Springs. Mrs. O. P. M. Brown and baby are guests of Mrs. Brown's father, Mr. George Krug, 1617 Wirt street. Mrs. E. McCormlck and Miss Katherl'ie McCormlck huve returned from an ex tended eastern trip. Mr. and Mrs. Alex Fick leave Monday for New York City, from where they sail June S for a trip abroad. Miss Vrslla Forhan of Denver, Colo., Is visiting her cousin. Miss Cella McCaffrey of 1031 Park avenue. Mr. and Mrs. Joseph E. Elder have moved from 4012 Harney street to 319 North Forty-first avenue. Mr. and Mrs. H. J. McCarthy leave to dny for a ten days' visit to Denver, Colo rado Springs and Manitou. Miss Mary Furay, who has been 111 at St Joseph's hospital with appendicitis, has been removed to htr home. Mrs. Mills of Fremont Is the guest of friends and relatives here. Mrs. Mills was formerly Miss Ala Neville. Mr. and Mrs, Hoxle Clark of St. Louis are guests of Mrs. Clark's mother, Mrs. Ella Squlrea, for a fortnight Miss Nannie Pnge has returned from Mr. and Mrs. Roland Paul of Los Angeles, Cat., who have been spending some time In New York City and are on their way home, not from the mercenary standpoint of ad vertising, but from the more Ideal reason that pupils should have an opportunity to "try themselves out," as It were, and hear their own voices in a larger place than the average studio. To tills end the writer has been laying plans to have this mode of expression enter largely Into the work of his students next season. Of course, the "advertising" feature of the pupil s recital is the danger spot, as far bb the teachers are concerned. Teachers are human, and they are very liable to exploit only their best pupils. This is unfair to the others. Very unfair. But of course, it is nice for tho teacher. It is a great temptation to place upon the recital program one's students who do the best work, notwlthntnnrtlne- th fa ft that most of that work has been done by other teachers. Here comes to a nlann tenrtier a nnnll who has been for years a pupil of some other piano teacher; a few chahges are necessary; the pupil accomplishes these changes with ease; the teacher foels Jus tified In saying: "See how much better she plays than she did," and so forthwith down goes the pupil on the recital pro gram. But the audience notes not the chang, notes only the fact that here la a plnyer who Is doing big things, playing ramous compositions, and the credit be longing largely to another, In spite of faults corrected, Is all given entirely and in toto to the last teacher. A singer comes to a teacher of singing: she has already studied for years the prin ciples of tone-production: she has become perhaps estranged from the teacher who did all the hard work: the new teacher gives a few good pointers, changes some tones, gives a song hitherto unstudied, and naturally enough says "Here Is my pupil." But the work was largely done by some one else. (Tho writer does not remember having experienced auch a case In his own work, and 'therefore he can speak freely: but he has noticed cases In connection with other teachers, not only vocal, but also Instrumental.) It might be an excellent Idea to print, on the program, the time of m.Mv v. spent with the teacher who gives the re- -'" or example: Miss Mary Llghtfln ger (third year); Miss Jane Merryvolce (second year); Mr. Al Legro (first year); r-.
