M. to their ^ T!iu Concert, A large audience greeted Sousa at the theater last that as large a night. It is seldom musical combination visits Reno, consequently there was a large attendance. It would be foolish for the musical critic on the JOUBNAL to attempt to tell hew grand the concert was, for his knowledge of music so limited that were he to tackle a Greek oration he might succeed as well. Several ladies were heard to say that Sousa was divine. Whether they referred to Sousa directly or his music was not explained. Without mentioning the numbers in detail it can be said that the instrumentation, combination, expression, tempo, tempo rubato, harmony, piauis- simos, crescendos and fortes and the general performance-was superb. The Trombonist's solo was great. He touched one note an octave lower than his horn was made for, and would kept on going down if he had had another telescopic shank to have lengthened .out his instrument. The French horn quartette in the last number was good, as wei e also various duetts, solos, etc., performed by the flageolets, hautboys, ophicliedes, ballad horns and cornets, but it is safe to say that Tanhauser or the Hungarian Rhapsody was not understood by fifteen people in the house and that " Carry the News to Mary" or " Get 1 Coon and Clawf do Flo'" would have been more appreciated. The singing of Miss French and the violin solo of Miss Carrie *Doke were pleasant features of the entertainment, but the of " Ob, Where is My Dollar and Half" wi}l be the most popular of to-day. with tho the mines Gal. are and that for bis Kidney once.
