Mme. Galve Will Visit Portland on ConcertTour
, NE of the most Interesting musical
announcements of the year Is the
forthcoming appearance in this city of
Madame Emma Calve who la to make a
concert tour of the United States,' Mexico
and Cuba next season under the direction
of John Cort and J. Saunders Gordon.
Bha will come to the Hellig Theater, De
cember 6, at the hea4 of a high-class
concert organisation 'and the concert to
be given gives every promise of surpass
ing In brilliance and artistic worth any
similar event ever conducted In this city.
It Is needless at this late day to com
ment upon Madame Calve's ability as a
singer. Her praises have been sounded
from the uttermost to the nethermost
ends of the civilized earth by the most
accomplished critics of the art of singing.
Kccognized everywhere as one of the
greatest sopranos of the century she Is
also everywhere recognized as the most
consummate actress who ever sang In
grand opera. .She Infuses temperament
Into her singing as does no other living
singer. She is at once the delight and
the despair of the great musical critics
who have long since exhausted their store
of descriptive phrases in extolling the su
perb qualities of her matchless voice.
The Intelligent appreciation and the en
thusiastic support which have been ac
corded great musical artists In this city In
the past were largely Instrumental In
causing the directors of Madame Calve's
tour to select this city as one of her
"ports of call." Her tour Is limited to
exactly 40 concerts. She has given her
word that she will sing just 40 times and
the word of a great prima donna is law.
As her tour will embrace Mexico atM
Cuba as well It Is somewhat of an honor
to this city that It was chosen as one
of the favored places to be visited by
this queen of song.
Detailed announcements concerning the
concert will be made later. It can be
said that the programme will lnclutfe at
least one song from "Carmen." Madame
Calve Is recognized as the greatest of all
the Carmens and as It is her favorite role,
she has decided to offer selections from
It at each of her concerts. The artists
who will accompany her will be thorough
ly representative. Artistic excellence will
be the watchword of the concert.
It 1b more than likely that grand opera
will claim Madame Calve after next sea
son and that only New York, of all the
American cities, will hear her glorious
voice. She temporarily retired from the
operatic stage several years ago, hut the

marvelous welcome which she received
when she returned for ten performances
in the metropolis last Spring turned her
thoughts toward again seeking public
favor in a sphere In which she can not
only sing, but live a role, and the chances
are favorable for the signing of long term
contracts In this country and In Europe.
Calve will appear under the auspices of
the Heilig Theater management. Mail
orders from this city will be received be
ginning November 25. .

formance of "The Nightingale" by the
San Francisco Opera Company. Home
made candles and programmes will be

world and his wife" (especially his wife)
will make it a brilliant affair.

In these busy days the single-handed
house-mistress or the possessor of an .un
certain cook may be excused If she views
with some alarm the approach of
Thanksgiving and all the extra work
involved in preparation for the hospital
ity and the generous supply of good
things to eat inseparable from the festival-
The most .glorious of turkeys and
the finest of "flxin's" are little enjoyed
if served by a tired, hurried and wor
ried hostess; and it is always well at
such seasons to remember the words of
the IHitch philosopher: "Better Is peace
and potatoes than pother and a cow."
But Portland Is fortunate In having' as
"first aid to the maidless.". the Women's
Exchange, on Tenth and Alder streets.
Here are real home-made pickles and
Jellies, pumpkin pies and other pies, cakes
In bewildering variety, crisp,. ; brown
baked bread and rolls including the old
fashioned "salt-rising" kind salads, veal
loaves, chicken pies, all ready to .do hom
age to King Turkey.
Moreover, if anyone lacks, confidence
either in the size of her oven or'in her
ability as a roaster of turkeys, sne may
leave here an order for the preparation
of the whole bird himself. . .
Why work yourself to the, verge of ner
vous prostration in the effort to avoid the
"ready made" and have a sufficiency of
dainty hand-made articles for Christmas
presents. The Women's --Exchange offers
all kinds of ii.'enlous and artistic things
for those "different" gifts tljat we all
are seeking, and they range all the way
from "cunning," inexpensive trifles up to
costly pieces of exquisite workmanship,
which may be admired when both maker
and original purchaser have returned to
You may see delicate painted china, fln
lace and embroidery, and fairy-like baby
wardrobes side by side with sturdy and
useful kitchen aprons, practical knitted
goods and such ephemeral trifles as place
cards and luncheon favors. But for the
credit of your honesty don't be tempted
to Imitate the custom of those mean and
mannerless ones who have been known to
enter the exenange in search', of Ideas
(being as Incapable of originality as of
justice) who toss over the entire stock
and depart empty-handed but mentally
loaded with spoil. Nobody requires such
pirates to. purchase things they don't
want or cannot afford; but common fair
ness In shopping seems to be a difficult
task for us women to learn. And while
i am 'speaking of the ethics of shopping,
let me repeat emphatically the need for
getting all your Christmas purchasing
done early. If you would not be accused,
not only of thoughtlessness and thrift
lessness, but also of right down cruelty
There is another side to the helpfulness
of the Woman's Exchange the fact that
it affords an opportunity for women to
earn money, much needed, perhaps, with
out leaving; the Jjome; and the importance
of such work can hardly be overesti
mated. It is possible for a consigner to
earn large yearly sums If her product
is really excellent, and if she is willing
to exercise a little patience until her
goods are known (her name Is known
only 'to the testing committee) and a reg
ular market secured. The exchange fee
is only $1 per year; the association col
lecting 10 per cent on the sales. Last year
one consigner recetved checks to the
amount of 1200 and many others received
comparatively large sums.
The growth of the exchange has been
most gratifying since its opening about
four years ago in a small place on Wash
ington street, with a staff of three. It
now occupies a large double store bund
ing and has a staff of 12 employes un
der the successful managership of Mrs.
Ada L. Goodwin. There ar large and
pleasant lunch-rooms where home cooked
meals are daintily served. Afternoon
teas are a special feature of the ex
change and are increasingly popular. The
Colonial library and the exhibit of the
Arts and Crafts Society adds to' the at
tractiveness of the tea-room.
