Martha fiehivertlein Aufiw. Jlnrni' ici-r Valentin Llepchcn Sid ma Weber noser Gelst Crete. Meyer There was a good deal of the holiday spirit and atmosphere In the Irving Place Theater last night; the management doing their part with an excellent production of Goethe's "Faust," and the (ludlcnce theirs with evident appreciation and frequent applause. The theater packed a pleasant sight In these day of jaded nppctitics and canned comedies. The play was given with new settings, and the pauses between the scenes were refreshingly short.

Everything contributed to an evening reminiscent of the classical tradition. A noteworthy feature of the evening was the new mlse en scone. To mention hut one the scene in Auerbach's roller in Leipzig was excellent. The colors of the costumes, the tone of the walls and celling, tile mellow dusk which seemed to cloud the fur corners of Ihe room, the arrangement of the group as the curtain i cse everything united to make a picture unique and satisfying. Similarly good effects were provided in the opening scene and in the final picture at the end.

Through the combination of several seeues the cathedral, Margaret's homo and Martha's garden, In one picture, a good deal of time was saved, and the I erformance came to and end before midnight despite the fact that very little of the text had been omitted. Perhaps the most completely satisfactory performance of the evening was Anne Simson's Margarcto. She was fresh and Ingenious in the early scenes and rose to real dramatic heights as the play progressed, carrying the action to an effective climax In the prison scene. OUo Stieckel departed from tradition in make up of his Faust and presented aif Interesting figure of a medieval scholar. He was suffering from a severe cold last night, and his voice consequently lacked range and flexibility.

The lull effect of his Interpretation cannot be judged by what ho did aud failed to do Direktor Christians was more successful as Mcphlsto than those familiar with his slyle' and manner would have supposed. was hard to suppress a feeling of disappointment that Heinrlch Marlow was not cast for the part, yet in such scenes of lighter mood as that with the student of the revel in Auerbach's cellar. Mr. Christians was excellent. He was altogether a jovial good fellow kind of devil: fond of cutting up.

and fell short chiefly In his failure to suggest the sinister pur-rose that lies back of all his fooling. The' supporting cast offered some excellent contributions. Greto Meyer as the evil spirit; Christian Rub as the witch. Helnrich Marlow's Brnndcl, Heinrlch Matthacs in the tavern scene and Ernst Ilolznagel's Valentin were all true to the spirit of the poem. That there were a few weak spots also goes without saying but the marvel of It Is that so much was excellently done.

Anyone who wishes to fee the greatest drama In the German language, and one of the great works of all time effectively visualized has a rare opportunity In the current "Faust" performances at the Irving Place. NOVEL STYLES IN LINEN. Chinaware and Awning Effects in New Dress Goods. Chlnawiiro and awnings have played their part in the new dress linens and cottons of the coming season. That this is true is evidenced by the display of now materials which opened yesterday morning on the first floor of Wnnamtiker's store.

There are wonderful awnins stripe cottons, in blacks, browns and bluos, rind there are rntlncs, crepes and voiles, nil with a charming design that might have been copied from some bits of rare old flowered chinaware. Both of these materials have hats and parasols to match, all having becu made in Paris for this showing. The awning stripes are very smart, and the chinawnre patterns rank with some of the best looking materials that have been shown for some seasons. 1'Mowered bordered cottons and linens are seen in the display, one very effective ptoce having a border embroidered with a sweet pea design. Other materials are corded velvet velour, chiffon velvet broche and pastel ratine in plaid effects to be used for sport eoata.

Some of the finer goods are embroidered ratines, French tulle, embroidered handkerchief linens, jaquard linens and the various styles of voils and crepes. AMUSEMENTS BROOKLYN.

'THE MESSIAH' GRANDLY SUNG In Carnegie Hall by Soloists and Chorus of Oratorio Society. The annual Cnristmustide performance of "The Messiah" was given yesterday in Carnegie Hall by the Oratorio Society of New York, in thu presence of a distinguished audience, which numbered Dr. Lyman Abbott and many other notables, besidts typical music lovers of several geiifrntiors, dating back to silver-haired octogeiiEtriaiis.

It was a most r.mllcixc, and tiVrc was that thrill of magnetism about it which made it a profound pleasure to be a part of it. The New Yrrk Symphony Orchestra was a decided feature of the performance, after the chorus and soloists, of course, giving, as it d'd. massive or eloquent support. The chorusoa, voicing diiferent meauiims, appeal, triumph-or lament, were specially well given. It might be said that of the greHt oratorios of the world, Handel's "Messiah" stands first and last, as the greatest and most inspiring of all.

"Surely He Hath Borne Our Griefs" and "His Yoke Is Easy," "For Unto Us a Child Is Born" and "Since by Man Cami Death" were very effectively given, and the big dramatic effects, like the "Hallelujah Chorus" and the finale, "Blessing and Honor" were sung broad, rich of tone. As to the soloists, they were well matched. The strong yet sweet soprano of Corinne Hitler Kelsey, the expressive and rich alto of Christine Miller, thu clear, emotional tenor of Evan Williams, and the splendid basso of Frederick Martin "took oae (metaphorically) off one's feet" at certain moments, and the audience showed that it was much moved by the sweep of applause which it gave. Mine. Kelsey gave "Rejoice Greatly" with fine colorature effect, and "Come Unto Him" and "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth" she gave with devout eloquence.

Miss Miller's "He Was Despised" was tender and expressive, also ''He Shall Feed His Flock." Evan Williams roused the audience greatly with "Thou Shalt Break Them" and in "Thy Rebuke Hath Broken His Heart." He was strongly impressive, making the tenor part notable. Frederick Martin, from the time ho started with "Thus Suith the Lord" and "But Who May Abide the Day of His CominK?" set the pace for bassos to follow, by his flre aud dramatic fervor. Director Koemmenieh carried his forces through "The Messiah" finely. Frank L. Sesley was effective as organist.

I SUNDAY SCHOOL HAS SANTA. DeKalb Avenue M. E. Church Celebrated Christmas Last Night. The children of the Sunday school of the DeKalb Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church gave their Chrl3tmas entertainment last night at the church, DeKalb avenue near Franklin.

Every seat in the church was taken and the efforts of the performers were generously applauded by their parents and relatives The early part of the programme was given by the kindergarten class and censisted of recitations and soiiKa. Fred Anderson, Muriel Lewis, Helen Flint and Estelle Holder all delivered recitations about St.nta Chios and Christmas, and the entire class gave a number of carols in chorus. The principal number of the programme was a Christmas song-story, which was elven by the choir of the church, aug- Iniented by many of the older members of the Sunday school, the total number in the chorus being fifty. The song-story was entitTed, "A dream of the Christ." It was given under the direction of the organist and choir leader, Mrs, Edgar Boyd McConnell. The momentous event for the children was the appearance of Santa Clans to distribute the gifts that were mar-sod at the foot of the big Christmas Irie, at one side of the stage.

The trees which fraced ull of the wards, were all furnished and decorated, as usual, by a committee from tho First Reformed unurcn, unucr of Miss Spence. While this was going on, the Rev. E. S.

Harper, rector of All Saints' Episcopal Church, came In, accompanied by thlrty-flve members of his male choir. Again the wards resounded with Christian song, this time the Hwcet treble voices of boys sustaining thei melody. On would not have supposed, from the vigor of the singing, that these, boys and young men had already sung for the sick at ten other places, after having treated their rector to a serenade at cju a.m. thnt morning. From far and near, by express and parcel post, packages arrived containing books, toys, fruit, delicacies, hand-made gifts for men and women, so that all, whether rich or poor, were supplied in abundance.

Even the children who are receiving treatment in the dispensary were not overlooked, several of the donations having been made, with them expressly in view. The unannounced arrival of another unexpected Santa, dressed in flaming red and riding In an auto, created as much excitement among the nurses, as among the children. He represented the Epworth Lenguo of the DeKalb Avenue M. E. Church, and dealt out another round of good things for the little ones.

The Christmas dinner was a mnster-plece. It was turkey, with all the conventional accompaniments, for everybody In the house, doctors, nurses, employers, ward as well as private patients. The preparation and service reflected credit upon the: hospital's commissary department, and evoked from all, expressions of delight and appreciation. Superintendent Kavanagh wns quite naturally elated over the way his plans for the comforting of the sick and the enjoyment of the hospital workers succeeded, as well as very grateful to the many friends, whose generosity made the. blsr celebration possible.

If someone had nsked him yesterday: "Doctor, Is there anything else you would like?" He would have replied. "Yes. Just one thing more. Get me J150.000 at oncei for that much-needed new Home for Nurses." WOBKINO HARD FOB. EUCHRE.
