Barnstormers Notes ol Coming Attractions at tho Theatre The Crust of Society and Erne JCllslers lieu Play The Home Dramatic clubs engagement ran over from last week and closed with Monday nights performance of The World This was followed for one night by the Deseret minstrels and Wednesday and Thursday nights were given over to the eminent artists J G and E Alma Stuttz supported by the New York Theatre company as announced in the advertisement of the Salt Lake theatre Charles S Burton manager The Home Dramatic club and the Des eret minstrels arc both superior amateur organizations and are fully the equal of many professional companies traveling through the country and appealing to the support of theatregoers The Stuttz T outfit organized in 1867 as stated on the bills is simply a band of green barnstormers such as visit small country towns along with threelegged pigs and doubleheaded cows on agricultural fair days The theater management ought to hang its head in shame for giving its sanction to the imposition attempted to be practiced on its habitues by this miserable show which it knew to be a fraud Even the ignorance upon which so much was banked was not so dense as to be greatly taken in by it though many a good hardearned dollar went to the boxoffice in the credulous belief that something worthy would be had for the money It seems to have been the purpose of the 9 management of the theatre to edify the citys visitors during the conference season without calling in the aid of celebrities It would have afforded delight no doubt to thousands brought hither by the dedication ceremonies to have been treated throughout to such performances as those given by the VTardeJames combination for instance J Other opportunities might present themselves to see our talentedhomecompanies but here was a chance to secure attractions which many of the transient guests coming from long distances cannot often see and it was a poor compliment to these that the effort was not made and the overflowing public had to put up with what was offered The Crust of Society This comedy drama will be offered next Tuesday and Wednesday at the Salt Lake theatre Its theme is nota neW one and It is perhaps junta trifle difficult to determine whether it is a play with a moral or simply a drama written for artistic finish and effect It comes to us as a clever adaptation of Dumas IILe DemiMonde famous in Paris nearly a half century ago It has been translated into English by several persons since its first presentation but the present dramatization is said to be the best that has yet been given r John Stetson whose excellent company will present the play comes to Salt Lake from New York and Boston where it has had a great success There is enough in it to set New York and Boston talking The translator Miss Guiney is highly praised for her clever and intelligent worlr by all the newspapers The plot is not at all in the usual line The adventuress is made to appear a heroine in the eyes of the audience and the leading male character who once enjoyed her love is portrayed as a coward He prevents her from marrying the man whom she dearly loves and who loves her although he does not care for her himself The lesser characters in the story are in capable hands and have plenty of work to do There are twelve characters in the play equally divided as to sex Of these persons but one 1 man and one woman are presumed to have led correct lives Every thing ends as well as could be reasonably expected Scenically the play is said to lack nothing and the cast is one of remarkable strength Effie Ellslcrs New Play Later in the week towit Thursday Friday and Saturday nights tho new Bveact play of Doves well be produced iuced by the Effie Ellsler company so noted in Hazel Kirke the cast includ I ing the veteran Couldock Frank Weston Robert Drouet etc We have seen many high encomiums of this piece and of the acting in it by our contemporaries of the press and the theatre going people will look forward to the engagement with high interest Annie Eva Fay Lectures on Spiritualism theosophy at the theatre this evening She gives manifestations and tests in the flare of the electric light and not in the dark as is common with others There has been a great deal of interest in her seances in the east whero she has always drawn full houses Stage Gossip Gounod

for many years was recognized as the best translator into the Italian language of the librettos of foreign operas and his services were in great demand amongthe music publishers of Italy Carrie MillznerHamilton is not with the Bostonians during their present tour It will be recalled that she and Camille Darville were at daggers points but the impossibility of having two prima donnas was made possible by starting another company lor Miss Hamilton in which she is now singing Robin Hood in the smaller cities in the east John Stetsons version of Dumas DemiMonde is that made for Mrs James Brown Potter and Kyrle Bellew by Miss Louise Imogen Guiney the poet Stetsons wife will have the role of Mrs Eastlake Chapel and her sister Belle Stokes that of Violet Esmond and the Mrs Ernestine Echo will be Isabel Eves son formerly leading lady at the Boston museum A casual remark during an interview with Henry E Abbey in Chicago tho other day led that impresario to suggest a truth that many seems to have overlooked It was with reference to Patti of whom Mr Abbey said Patti is still great in concerts but she could not stand tho strain of an operatic season You must not forget that she is getting old The last time she appeared in the United States she appeared in twentysix concerts and only five operas yet those five operas exhausted her more than all the concerts Richard Mansfield

Sights and CustomsSeance at the Salt Xafco Theatre Tonight a I 1 to s t t ib Mis Anna Eva Fay arrived in Salt Lake yesterday Her name is familiar to almost the entire civilized world as of a woman who possesses most wonderful and fascinating powers as to what the people choose to call a spiritualistic medium She has recently returned from Europe where she has given illustrations of her peculiar power to the crowned heads of effete monarchies from the Mediterranean to Siberia Sbe was called upon by a HERALD reporter at her hotel last evening and proved to be a most charming interviewer both as to personality and the story she told of herself Miss Fay is a little woman with an abundance of blonde hair and the brightest of blue eyes She chatted most entertainingly of her recent trig abroad and finally in answer to one or two questions began to talk of her mission in traveling about the country as she does 4 I was born she said in Louisville Ky but have spent many years of my life abroad When I was 11 years old I began to develop my peculiar powers and have been giving exhibitions most of the time since The chief interest to her in what she heard and saw she said was in those things pertaining to Theosophy of which she has been making a study as well as other branches of occult scone I have particular purpose she said in which I am much interested Among theosophists especially those who were intimately associated with Mme Blavat sky the late renowned high priestess of their sect there is a strong belief that she received inspired instructions through a mysterious head that is kept in a temple in Bombay and that all the advanced doctrines of theosophy came to her in this way Since her death no one has been able to get any communication through this image If I really have such powers as people attribute to me and being a firm believer in theosophy 2 I should be able to get communication through this image At least I am going over there to try l and if possible bring it back with me Miss Fay talked a little about her various experiences I am an American she said and was born in Louisville Ky living there until I was six years old when I went to England where 1 was brought up Both my father and mother were spiritualists and my mother was a very effective medium I began giving performances when I was 13 years I old and have continued ever since During my recent tour in Europe I visited every capital in the old world from St I Petersburg to Constantinople I Miss Fay wears a beautifully jeweled gold braided watch chain which was II given her by the emperor of Russia before whom she gave an exhibition of her powers Miss Fay will remain in this country until after the Worlds fair when she will make her third tour of the world going by way of San Francisco to Australia China and India where she hopes to get the mysterious image or head to which reference has already been made Miss Fay is about 32 years of age petite of figure with a bright face and an agreeable manner She talks rapidly and intelligently and is evidently if one may judge by her bearing and conversation a rapt enthusiast on occultation
