KATHERIXE XL The Times-Herald of December 22, has answered the above question fully. 1 append the extract: The sentimental girl will have an op portunity on Christmas day of finding out for a certainty whether she or her bosom friend will be married first. The wishbone of the Christinas turkey Is in fallible in that respect. The most ap proved method is for the two friends to pull the wishbone, the one getting the larger piece with the flat end be ing the one who will first be married. A young woman who has been most successful in getting the larger end says you cannot fall to get It if you simply hold your end and let the other one pull. After you have pulled the bone and broken the larger piece you can either hang it up on the door to see whom you will marry, or you may find It out In another way.

Ji fc THE COURIER. I r ViYIOJXifKKI' IN RELATED KEYS Hekbebt Bates The Unlversallst musical service re peated two numbers from the charity concert. The first of these, Alard's Symphony Concertante for two violins seemed played with more spirit than at the former rendering. Perhaps this was partly owing to the fact that this time It was heard under circumstances more favorable, not at the end of a dreary program of all manner of music. The composition seemed to lack strong sub stance. It is striking, however, and rises to smuch emotional power, a little tinged, however, by sentimental effus iveness. The other number from the charity concert, the duet between Mr. Lawler and Miss Flnnlgan, was not so good. The song was rather pretty, somewhat after the old school, with some charming passages. But the sing ing rather lacked. Mr. Lawler would sing well in a chorus. His singing is even, unemphatic, unlndlvldual. For this every reason It Is, In solo work, very unexpresslve and unsatisfying...

There was a time when America and free government were worth fighting for and dying for, but that was in the good old days, in glorious reminiscences of which the veterans are living, and de fending which they speak for their flag. There was a time when our free institutions stood for a great principlo, and when statesmen and jurists, spot less in character, pure in motive and grand in ability, stood champions in their behalf.

Every situation is reasonable and natur al thero are no anti-climaxes, no repe titions, no extraneous theatrical devices, the development of the story is logical and consistent at all times. Mr. Potter has followed the book rather more faith fully than is the custom with the aver age dramatist. Most of tha characters have been reproduced with wonderful fidelity. Little Billee, Taffy and the Laird are Da Maurier's portraits brought to life. Svengali is depicted with hor rible realism, Gecko is the same weird, pitiable specimen of a musical enthusi ast that the book portrays. Jolly Zou Zoa, reckless Dodor and the half dozen other minor characters which have be come so well known and admired by the public are all graphically represented.

IMfMtlA -r.TM.l PA 3 IN RELATED KEYS Herbert Bates MyiTl-Tr:ZT:lr.Cm Omaha aporeciates German opera, nor does it limit its appreciation to the lighter operas. The Valkyrie found as warm a welcome as either Tann haeuser or Lohengrin, and it was the Valkyrie that was the most promi nent. It was overwhelming, so over whelming indeed, that the critic of the World-Herald forgot to criticize, and went into two columns of inarticulate ecstatic hysterics. And no wonder. It takes about twelve hours to sober up after an emotional carouse of that kind. One is brought, more or lees unpre pared, into sudden contact with one of the greatest of artistic creations. This set of operas, this Cycle of the Ring of the Nibelungs, ranks with the plays of Shakespeare, the Symphonies of Beethoven. The myth it deals with is our own, the epic of the Germanic north. Wo have adopted Greek Gods, we teach the Greek mythology in our schools, we accept, relucta...
