GADSKI IN CHICAGO.
Marvelous Purity, Freshness
Strength of His Voice.
An audience of 3000 In the Auditorium
at Chicago a week ago was aroused to
tho highest pitch of enthusiasm by the
singing of Johanna Gadski, the great
dramatic soprano, who is to appear at
the Marquam under the direction of
Lois Steers, Monday, December 19.
"Gadski demonstrated how great a
purely lyric singer an operatic star can
sometimes be," says the Chicago Sun
day American of November 27. "From
the Mozart arfa which opened to the
group of Wagner that closed, she dis
played her marvelous voice in all Its
purity, freshness and strength, her Tiigh
musiolanship, and best of all, that subtle
faculty of arousing the sympathy of her
audience that has given her the position
in the musical world that she holds
"The Impress of the dramatlc school
was on all, and the image of Isolde and
Brunnhilde was reflected throughout her
method. Even in Schubert's perennial
'Haldenroeslein,' and that son? of songs
of Richard Wagner, Traume,' there was
the same underlying emotion and dra
matic feeling, refusing to be hold down
to purely lyric expression."

offering for tho New Year is the "Fairy"

bolizing Morning, Noon, Evening and
Night. These pictures are roal works of
art, worthy of a place in the most refined
Each piece is complete ready for hang
ing. The calendar taken as a whole sur
passes in ornatenoss of design and rich
ness of tone values any previous effort in
this line. It will prove a revolation and
