A theatrical season in which the great American talking pantomlmist, Dewolf 1 topper, did not contribute his share of gay-ety would seem dismally vapid, and Sousa's new opera, "The Charlatan," which he Lrovght to English'3 last night. Is only another of those modern musical txtrava-ganzas and comic operas constructed for tho tole purpose of permitting Hopper to make a night of It.

Uc Is to the winter festivities what the annual visit of the circus or the return of the victorious hall team is to the slow dragging days of summer. Sousa's new opera has been preceded by all sorts of reports since it began the season in the East, but the fact that Hopper wa3 to arrive with hi ever brilliant company of singers and assistant funmakers was charm enough to satisfy local amusement seekers und they were out in the usual number to welcome tho extravagant star in all his satanlcal grotes-queness. Hopper feeds on encores and curtain calls and it cannot be seen that he dines any less royally in his new production. He takes the audience into his confidence in the am saucy manner that has been his trade mark since the old days of "The HIack Huzzar." and people enjoy beady effer-vesene with as much relish as ever. He is even called to the footlights for two of his rapM-nre shrapnel speeches instead of one.

Hopper talks shop on these occasions with the innocence of an overgrown boy and his success in thus making free with an audience has encouraged him to introduce the tame pleasant habit during his topical song about the willful frog, wherein he is assisted by a male chorus. The vocal numbers furnished Hopper in 'The Charlatan," while they give him admirable musical opportunity, are turned into comedy with the customary license and a particularly high top note which he strikes on one occasion with grand opera spirit, serves as an excuse for a joke at his own expense. Hoprer has another chair trick in "The Charlatan." and introduces other evidence of magic powers that tits the character he assumes in the new piece. He also wears several costumes of weird and original design and handles his legs with graceful terpsichorean alertness. In addition to this the star is surrounded with an assortment of beautiful women, several of whom can sing with the best in their line.

Nella. Jerg is an ideal prima donru. both in voice and statuesque personality. Her songs are not so advantageously written as "they were in "El Capitan." the sleighing song particularly being unsulied for spectacular effect. Her silver notes in the hlrh register are the ones that enable Miss Bergen to win the audience.

Eittle Alice Judson Is a new bundle of soubrette femininity in the Hopper organization, with canary bird voice and a shyness that Is fascinating. Adim liouvier Is a stage beauty in a picturesque role and has been attracting her share of attention this season. Little Alfred Klein in a Fauntieroy suit is a valuable help to the comedy element, nd has become so familiar a ricure in the Hopper company that he was given a nattering hand on his tirst appearance last right Edmund Stanley wins the hrst encore with his well-rendered marionette song r.bout the "Knight and the Philosophic Iidy." a running description of the novel puppet show that opens the first act. Sousa's "Matrimonial Guards march song is the most taking number In The Charlatan." but it is only one of several that had to be repeated last night. Director II.

Judge Allen and Probate Commissioner Walker have a perplexing problem on their hands. A widow the mother of an elght-year-old girl has asked permission to purchase a piano for her daughter out of the funds which are being held in trust for the little one.

"Hie child Inherited from her grandfather's estate and the mother wants to spend one-half of this amount on a piano. She came down to tho courthouse yesterday and submitted her request to the probate commissioner. She said the child had shown an unusual talent in a musical way, and she believed that a piano was just the thing to develop this talent. When the probate commissioner learned that the child was but eight years of age he frowned on the mother's proposition. He said he did not think a girl had any use for a piano until she was fourteen and he was not of the opinion that the money should be spent in this way, since the mother has no funds of her own.

The woman then isited the Circuit Court and had a talk with Judge Allen. She endeavored to convince th court that a part of her daughter's inheritance could not be expended in a more judicious way than In the purchase of a piano. Judge Allen said it whs a matter that would have to bo seriously considered and promised to see the probate commissioner. "You'll make me very happy if you consent." the woman remarked as she left the courtroom. SEALSKINS FOR EASTER The Present Outlook, Jndglnsr from the Early Morning Weather.

He looked forward to happier days.

A man of anarchistic tendencies declared it was his solemn belief that tho gas company and the Weather Bureau were in league to bleed the people, because, ho said, a spell of cold weather always came on at the first of every spring month, compelling tho retention of mixers and the consequent payment of bills for thirty days longer.

F. Schell, president of the collapsed J. F. Schel! Investment Company, at Fort Wayne, and are among tho few who were not swindled by his daring frauds. The AtkVi-son agency here has his record for years back.

About tea years ago he was the presiding genius In the formation of a raMing company, which did an extensive business at Camden, Jay county, but it proved a ruinous investment for the half dozen rich farmers lured Into the enterprise, and when it failed, with liabilities of $30,000, and no money to speak of, Schell glided from under, escaped tho wTath of the victims and sought fresh fields at South Whitley. Here he embarked in the loan business. He represented the Atkinson loan agency, of this city. In that and surrounding counties, and turned In a prodigious amount of new business.

Kelley. who is now thousht to be well on the road to recovery from the pistol shot wound Inflicted by Mrs, Kelley at Ehr-mandale a week ago. has filed an affidavit against her for shooting with intent to kill.

Kelley had rich and influential relatives in the East, but she refused to give names or places of residence. She admitted that she married the doctor ten years ago as the result of a romantic acquaintance, but said he. ha4 made lite miserable for her.
