No mora pfoasing and thoroughly
enjoyable entertainment has ever been
given in Grants Pass than wan the
one presented at the opera hotine Wed
nesday evening. The musical pro
gram which occupied the fore part of
the evening waa of a high order, the
orchestra uuler the direction of Prof.
Henry rendering several selection!
which were enthusiastically received.
The V4x;al numbers were given by H.
L. Andrew! and a male quartet cou
poned of Messrs. Van Dyke, Veatch,
Andrews and Lucas and ' were very
enjoyable. Mitts Ada Walker ii al
ways enthusiastically received and her
rendition of an impossible story as
told by a young hopeful held the au
dience In expectant anticipation aa to
what calamity might befall the youth.
Losers of string music were given a
treat by Prof. Henry and hi 'cello.
Mr. Henry ii an artist oo the 'cello
ax well as the violin and his le tion
brought forth rounds of applause to
which he responded with another solo
The feature of the evening waa the
rendering of the comic operetta "Pe
nelope" which in itself is a gem fall
of action throughout and containing
pleasing bit of long for solos, duets
and quarteta, with the following cast:
Penelope, the kitchen maid
Mrs. W. W. Walker
Mrs. Croker, the "Missua"
Mrs. W. L. Ireland
Pitcher, policeman . . Geo. P. Cramer
Tosser, grenadier T. P. Cramer
Chalks, milkman. .... A. E. Voorhies
The itar of the evening was, without
a doubt, Penelope, the kitchen maid,
who counts her lover! by the icore and
on thii occasion through an erroriu her
"dairy" allowed two of her lover to
call on the tame evening. In the
midst of the feast which had been pre
pared the " Missus" appeared and re
fiiHod to allow Penelope to remain
longer in her (ervice; the actions of
Pitcher and Toner at this time reveal
the fact that their love wa more for
the flue suppers than for the girl, and
Chalk who had previously been treat
ed with scorn, is now the accepted
suitor. Mrs. Walker wai perfectly at
houie in all her trying Hituations, her
acting was perfection and her voice in
the solo aud chorus parts showed a full
rich quality always iu perfect control
aud was of especial delight to the au
dience. The part of Mrs. Ireland, al
though being a very difticult one aud
did not admit of much latitude in ac
tion or song, xhe having to personify a
disappointed aud narrated mistress
who was continually finding fault and
scolding, and not entirely without
reaion. Mrs. Ireland, however, entered
io thoroughly into her part that the
sympathy of the audience was ever
with the maid.
The dash'ug grenadier in resplend
aut nniform and the gallant policeman
with club and helmit were personified
by T. P. and Ueo. P. Cramer and
their acting was so perfectly natural
aud realistic ai to cause many to ex-
presa the opinion that they, iu chosing
a buNinea life hart mised their call
ing. The meeting of Pitcher and
lossir was amusing in the extreme
aud the variety of emotion called forth
by the rapid change of events gave the
gentlemen an opportunity to display
their ability iu that line. Their duet
was especially pleating while the
laughing trio by Pitcher, Towner aud
Penelope convulsed the entire audieue.
Chalks, the milkman, as the bashful
suitor of Penelope was the right man
iu the right place.
There has been nothing but praise
expressed regarding the oeittta aud
each one of the participants has re
ceived abundant congratulations. The
success, of the performance beloug in a
large maimer to H. C. Kinney under
wlioea drilling and direction the play
