Mr Linn and her sister, MJss Elizabeth
Sawyers, arrived at Balreuth by train
only kalf an hour before the performance
was jto begin. Their experience dq6s not
tally with the reports so coram'oply cir
culated regarding the extravagant 'prices
paid for opera tickets at 'Balreuth.
Whether or not these were In the -control
of speculators. Mrs. Linn and her sister
were chic, with the aid of an Austrian
friend, to purchase them rafter their ar
rival at the regular price ?5 apiece,
which was certainly not unreasonable.
Af ter "enjoying the walk under interlac
ing branches from the station to the opera-house,
they spent a few minutes
strolling through the garden, which cbha
mands a landscape of idyllic beauty. At
4 o'clook a trumpet blast sounded the
Parsifal motive, this being a signal that
the performance was about to begin. In
side the opera-house all .was dark and j
hushed; a divine stillness reigned, broken
in a few minutes by the orchestra.. Into
the overture1 were woven In, wonderful
lashlon, the various motives of the opera.
the Grael, the sacred spear, the bell, the
repentance, the Swan motive.
The beautiful communion scene which
occurs in the first act, made a profound
Impression upon the audience. In', the
Temple of the Grael, at the round ifble,
Sit the knights clothed in red. Prom, the
heights afar off is heard, with beautiful
effect, a chorus of boys voices. Twilight
falls, as the bread Is broken. A single
ray of light illuminates the cup, the soft,
rosy glow increasing to intense bright
ness. The strain of the Savior's lament
and the repentance chorus are heard, and
Amfortas, the wounded King, raises the
holy cup above his head, waves it aloft,
and bestows hla blessing upon the knights,
who reverently kneel to Teceivc It. As
the one ray of light pales, and the cup
fades from sight solemn chords are heard
from the orchestra, the Swan motive
mingling with the Grael. Parsifal, the
Guileless Fool, standing at one side, is
overcome with awe at the miracle
In the last act. this scene is repeated
with deepened power. Parsifal, now leader
' of the knights because he has resisted sin,
uncovers the Grael and blesses the men,
Kundry, the one woman present, who had
been in turn temptress and penitent Mag
dalene, dies, redeemed at Parsifal's feet.
Vandyke, the French tenor, took the
part of Parsifal, and Clara Wlttlch, the
Dresden singer, that of Kundry.

MISS STEERS' ARTISTS.
Kordlcn, Mqconda, Katlierine

Circulars have been sent out by Miss
Lois Steels, Pacific Coast representative
of the New York manager, Loudon G.
Charlton, announcing a series of recitals
by prominent artists, among them Nordl
ca. Subscription lists are being circulated
and if sufficient patronage is secured the
first concert will be given this month by
Charlotte Maconda, one of the most ad
mired of American colorature singers.
Her voice is of rich Quality, remarkable
compass and flexibility. As soloist for the
Maine festivals and prominent choral so
cieties, she has established herself a fa
vorite. Katharine Ruth Hcyman, a young
American pianist, has an enviable repu
tation abroad as well as at home. She
has appeared with the Boston Symphony
Orchestra and the Knelsel Quartette, and
has been called the female PaderewskL
Katharine Fisk, contralto, has also
achieved an International reputation, hav
ing appeared as soloist with all the no
table choral societies of England. Her
recitals are particularly pleasing, as well
as educational. Philip Hale says of her
'Everywhere she appears, the judgment
Is the same; unstinted praise for her rich,
beautiful voice, dramatic intensity, vocal
art, arid musical intelligence." Of Nordl
ca, America's pride, nothing need b&
raid In praise. Any who are interested
in hearing these artists are urged, to xe
spend at once, to insure the series.
The bi-weekly recitals given at Aeolian
Hall are proving to be of genuine interest
to the music-loving public
These recitals are of high educational
value. Inasmuch as the people are given"
an opportunity to hear works lhat are
produced at rare Intervals only, and then
only In the chief musical centers of Eu
rope. One evening has already been given to
Wagner, another to Beethoven. The large
audience present on each occasion justi
fies the presumption that the Portland
public likes what is best in music and
Will turn out to hear it.
It Is the intention to give an evening to
the French school, of music, one to the
Italian composers and still others to Liszt,
Wagner, Beethoven and other .composers,
thus making it possible to hear the best
compositions of these great masters. .-
These recitals are always free, and every
jnuslc-lover is cordially invited to. attend.

a very low decollette; -her gpwn was

HOW PAN-AMERICAN ENDED-
"Taps" to Mark the Turning Off of
Lights the Last Time.
Buffalo Cor. New York Tribune.
Clear and penetrating from, high up on
the electric ' tower two minutes before
midnight Saturday night the -warning
notes of six bugles resounded over the
Pan-American grounds. Gathered" about
the base of the tower, on copjng, stairs,
railing and . benches, far down the es
planade, and completely filling the" tri
umphal arch, were thousands of Buffalo
ians, a sea of humanity, hushed, as the
tropica! ocean on a peaceful moonight
night. The end of the great Pan-American
Exposition could pow.be counted by
seconds, and sadness prevailed, every
where. In two minutes all would be
over, and every one knew it and was
Impressed by the solemnity of the occa
The souna of the bugles had been
awaited, and ail were ready to feee the
last gleam of the thousands of electric
bulbs that made the tower the wonder
of the new century. A deep' silence- pre-:
vailed, and all other parts of the city
were In sleep. Then, when the silence
was becoming almost too oppressive, tno
notea.of the clocks In different parts of
Buffalo sounding the midnight hour could
bo heard distinctly in the still Autumn
alr. Immediately the buglers began to
sound "taps," that doleful, melancholy
war note, and at the same instant the
lights near the apex of the tower were
seen to grow dimmer, and the .dimness
descended to the base of the structure-
Gradually the lights lost their brilliancy,"
and irom an intense white hiat became
transformed, to a soft yellow glow, and
from (hat into a deep red, ending in a
faint blush and darkness.
It was over. The Pan-American had
ceased . to exist It was a sad scene..
Women choked back teara and men
gulped hard and laughed ncrvqusly.
That for which Buffalo had striven so
hard .and gallantly for many years, and
which had been so much to the city, was
dead. For a. few moments after the
lights had gone out the silence continued.
Then some one began to applaud by a
clapping o( hands, and Instantly this
gave way to cheering. . The cheers re
sounded like a cry of victory after bat
tle, and they came from the throats of
thousands' pf patriotic Buffaloians, who
in this way showed their joy for the new
hirth-'of the city, for the broader life on
which It now enters as a result of what
It has accomplished through the big fair.

Landlords turned out tenants who had
occupied their premises for years and
paid good rents regularly. These land
lords will not be forgotten by the old
tenants, and when they have changed
their apartments to the original condi
tion the houses will be vacant. Thero
will not be enough newcomers In Buffalo
for years to come to fill these places, and
the qld tenants will not forget. The
many new buildings erected In anticipa
tion of the fair "will' accommodate the old
tenants, and already rents are lower than
they1 have been in some time. Labor will
still reap benefits from the fair. The
work of taking down the buildings will
demand the services of hundreds of men,
and thousands more will be required to
remodel houses in all parts of Buffalo.
This will require many months to accomplish.
