At one time in the history of entertainment It was thought that minstrelsy had seen Its best days, but this was only wben promoters had failed to grasp Its true inwardness. It has come to be 'that again Is minstrelsy to the fore not the old-time 'minstrelsy of a comic song or two in j nearly the same air and key, a few Jokes hoary with age that would need a .Nation hatchet to crack, a few minutes painful with sounds ot rattling bones r . and wheezy banjoes, but the newer, 1, $ 1 freBher, livelier minstrelsy of the elec- s1 Itrlcol age, when everything goes with a vim,' a dash and a sparkle that often causes even the best informed as to the novelties and Innovations of the new Century to Inquire!

This show, In which 8250,000 will be invested, and some 8,000 ot tbe gentler Sex employed. Is to be a great tale of goods made and used by women. In addition, there will be an oval populated y- the femininity of all nations, a reproduction Of a street In Venice an art gallery, a museum, lecture hall and a gymnasium. Women will serve as Carriage attendants, doorkeepers, ticket sellers, police officers and programme carriers. An orchestra and two brasa bands of wofnen have been engaged to furnish music. s-r , Next Saturday, July 28, promises to be a real red letter day at Manhattan Beach.

They will have supper In the flreworke pavilion, and will later attend toe fireworks exhibition as the guests of Mr- Pain. The officers will dine at the Oriental Hotel, and the start homewardwlll bi made at 10 oclock. Blanche Walsh, in a recent interview, recalls a coincidence which in her opinion augury well for the new play which Stanislaus Stange is now writing for her, and, which Is founded upon FlaubertS novel, "Salammbo. Miss Walsh says that her first, public appearance was made thirteen years ago when she was a mere girl of fifteen, at an amateur performance of "Othello" at the old Windsor Theatre," ht the Bowery-New York. She was the Desdemona, and the gentleman who played Iago was this same Stanislaus Stange, the author of the new play she is to appear In next season. The coincidence lies In the fact that Mr. Stange accepted the commission to write a play on the subject of "Salammbo for Messrs. Wagen-hals ft Kempet long before these managers had any idea of making a contract to star Miss Walsh. - . Onoto Watanna, author of "A Japanese Nightingale," the dramatio rights to which have been secured by Klaw ft Er langer, was born In Nagaskl, - Japan, twenty-three years ago. She Is- perhaps, the youngest successful novelist In the world, her third book having Just been purchased prior to its writing by the Harpers. Miss Watanna Is of Anglo-Japanese origin. Her father was an English Consul who married a Japanese woman. Thp marriage was not, however, of that variety which furnishes the main motive iix "A Japanese Nightingale,, for while Jack Bigelow married Yuki In Japanese fashion, Miss Watan-nas father married hi wife after toe Christian ceremony. Klaw ft Erlanger will produce "A Japanese Nightingale most elaborately, and will mount It with a magnificence which will riSal even toe sumptuousness of "Ben-Hur." 5- - The question has often been' asked, Why does not Henry W. Savage send the Castle Square Opera Company Into more cities duripg toe oourse of a season? Musio lovers everywhere ask that question, and the home office of the organization Is besieged with letters on the subject. The question Is easily answered, for the reason Is simply that It Is not possl ble to move that organisation about as ordinary companies are moved and have anything left In the treasury at the end ot the season. The organization Is a very large one, eomethlng over 125 people, and there are from seven to ten carloads of scenery and baggage carried with the company. So It is that tbe organization plays a season of forty weeks, but In that time visits but nine or ten of the larger cltlee. The Castle Square Opera Company Is known by all musio lovers to be the best organization that has ever given the grand and standard operas m the English language. It has been In existence for seven years, and Is the only organization of the kind that has even given perfect satisfaction, for while toe standard of work and the personnel of the company Is very high, the .price of admission Is very moderate. This season Puccini's "La Tosca has been added to the repertory- and Is to bs presented during each engagement played by the company. SALMON FISHING. Lots of Fun and Fish For Very t Little Money. How a Canadian Editor Gathers h& y - I Them In From the Restigouche, . and Its Tributaries.' r t Editor Young of the Cornwall (Ont.) freeholder"1 has Jusf been having sport with. the salmon of the upper New Brunswick waters, and, thus describes a few days In the Restlgouche country: ' v How much ddie It cost to kill a salmon? 1 - Well, that depend If you are a member of the Restlgouche Club your bill may run up a thousand or more, but ordinary mortals can do It for a good deal less, I dropped off at Campbellton, N. B,on a mid-June-morning, and looked up Billy Sproul, ot the Royal Hotel, and got a pointer or two. At 8 o'clock I took an accommodation train1 1 few miles west to Flat Lands, hailed a 'atherly old fellow, William Delaney, caretaker ot the Montgomery and Suction Water, and stated the case. William had a canoe, but no other man wae presently available, so we two went out alone. -The water was practically free, a nominal rental of 81 a day being charged per rod. There was perhaps half a mile of It altogether, and the Restlgouche River being unusually high, no pools were In sight.. We pulled out a few yards from shore, and dropping a stone for an anchor, oast to right and left, choosing a Durham-ranger fly of rather large pattern. The second or third cast brought a nice fellow to the top, a little short, however, and a few minutes later another, short, likewise. "Black salmon, said William, and ho good anyway These kelts or black salmon are fish that have wintered In tbe river, and are lean, lanky fellows, not fit for food, but liable to give you ka good a run as any other. Our first victims may or may not have been kelts; the guides are good-natured fellows as a rule, and sympathetic, and William may have been letting me down easy. - , Ths stone Is pulled up, and we drop down a few yards further, and after a while, with a moderately- short cast, a good-sized fish takes the fly, turns over, and then trouble begins. ' Right out into the river he goes, the reel screaming with delight, one could almost Imagine then an eruption In the water, and three or four feet of glittering silver Is In the air for a second or two. Another run and then a sulk at the bottom, with a stetujy chug, obug, as If the fish .was trying to get rid of the hook that was interfering with his freedom of motion. 1 "Keep the strain on him, salcf 'WllI-iam, and look out when he goes again. A tew minutes of suspense, then another rush and another Jump, and away he races up the centre of the river. A Metapedla salmon bound for the clubhouse for sure. But towing a canoe was a pretty heavy drag, and soon there were signs of distress. Tbe fish led somewhat more easily, he was reeled up, and ran out several times, each rush a little leas vigorous. All the time the canoe was being worked nearer ehore, till at last I was able to get out on the gravel. Fifty feet out the fish was lying almost exhausted on the top of the water and was coaxed In till a stroke of the gaff Impaled him and he was kicking himself on the gravel, when a blow from a stick straightened him out. A Meta-pedia salmon he was, deep and chunky, only a day or two from salt water, bright and shining, and on the scale a few hours later weighed 22 pounds. f They were not specially keen In the afternoon, one or two short rises, a run for a few minutes and a lost fish, and Jnst as we were preparing to suspend operations a good stiff strike. This fish did not Jump, but sulked for perhaps half a hour, then a wild rush or two. In vain we tried to guide him to a snug harbor, he would make for the south shore where there was no chance to land. A rather stiff rapid Intervened, and In the trouble of navigating It with one man, the fish said good-lye, taking with him the ily and half the leader It was nearly train time again, and reluctantly we wound up operation for the day. Going up on the train next morning I found tost two other parties had arranged to fish the Montgomery and Suction watei a, so Delaney and 1 betook BRIGHTON CEACri tHILDRRM AT BAILT MAriNEKS, TODAI AT 8 19.
