Tho performance ot "Mlknilo"
last night Riven by local tnlont was
In every way a splendid success.
Lncnt nlont In Mcdfurd moans very
linicti tnoro tlinti in any otlior town
In tlio stnto ot Oregon, Tor It when
It cornea to producing opera, Medford
una a real opera company, and pooplo
who httond thoso entertainments
Klvcn, by local talent need not feel
that they nro giving anything to char
ity when tlmy- buj- their tickets.
Whllo tho receipt of those entertain
menu go to make a happy Christmas
for flbmo who arc not financially ablo
to do for tho tltllo onea what Umy
would llko to, and whllo this causa
within. Itself would ho worthy of pa
tronage, It should bo remembered
that tho performance Itself is In a
clnssTvlth tho few' first-class operatic
performances that Medford has tho
good fortune to see.
Tho "Mikado" of last night Is In
a class with the "Chocolate Soldier"
and "Tho Merry Widow" and neither
of these operas ha a better come
dian In their cast than Art Burgess.
Tho writer of this nrtlclo has
played the. leading comedy part In
the "Mikado" more than twelve hun
dred times, and yet, tho opera ot last
night ' contained a freshness and
spontnntty ot wit that made It Is en
joyable as any entertalnmont that he
has witneusud-lu yrars.
Prank Ilurgesa Is n splendid Pooh
Huh. He Is suited to the part both
lu voliv and appearance and has n
keen conception of the dignified man
of all otflccH.
Judge Wlthlugton has rubbed
against the grease paint so long that
he can hardly be classed with ama
teurs. His performance ot Mikado
was fully up to the best professional
rendition or that part.
Hob llurgess made a fine looking
Nankl Poo and acted the part with
grace aud dignity.
Qulsenberry In good anywhere you
put Jdm, from a cigar counter to a
second comedian in coralc opera.
llcverldgo made an nctlvo Xecban.
It Is a big thinking part and Uevcr
Idgc thought so hard In the rolo that
tho veins stood out all over his fore
head. The three Httlo Maids were splen
did. Mrs. Andrews sang and acted
the part of Yum Yum lu a thoroughly
artistic manner. Pcop Ho and PHtl
Sing wero played by Mrs. Kdna Isaacs
and Mrs. Until Creely and they arc
Just as pretty and charming as they
used to be when we knew them as
Kdna Klfert and Knld Hamilton.
Mrs. Art llurgess was very good as
Katlsha. NSho Is a lady ot experience
nndnhowed It lu last night's perform
ance. One moro word for Kobo, for ho
was the big laugh. Art Burgess real
ly poEsoHscs a keen ene of humor
and It Is worth anybody's dollar to
seo him In the part ot Kobo.
The irchestra was directed by
Oeorgo Andrews, a role somewhat
new to him, although ho did his work
lu a thoroughly satisfactory manner.
The chorus was unusually good.
The girls aro all pretty and all of
them possess voices. Tho whole en
semble mado a very pretty picture.
Tho orchestra was also fully up to
tho requirements of the score.
Come out tonight and help the
good cause along and havo a laugh
that will make the recent fogs look
to you HIco a clear sky.
Tho costumes and scnory wero fur
nished by George T. Wilson.

that everybody asked today through

pected life. Ho was not greatly
moved. His response to tho infor
mation concerning his fate was char
Superintendent Lawson was
greeted with a questioning smile
when he entered Taylor's coll. The
tall, lean woodsman rose, braced his
narrow shoulders. His arms hung ot
his sides. If thero was. fear In his
heart he did not show it in his face.
"John," said Lawson, and his tone
was as commonplace att though ho
were commenting on the weather,

Taylor raised one gnarled hand, as
brown and withered as an autumn
leaf, and tho fingers caressed the
Htubhle on his chin. "Why," he
drawled and his voire showed nn
emotion, more violent than pleased
surprise. "Why, Is that- so? I'm
much obliged t'ye. Mister. It was
right kind of ye't come and tell me."
Ho was to live, perhaps to regain
his freedom to range the wild and
he was "much obliged." Later he
wart asked how ho could take the
news so calmly.
