Elaborate waists for Grand Opera The keynote of the fashionably dressed woman's wardrobe is the elaborate waist; and the woman who is also fastidious demands an artistic design as well. Waists from Bartholomew's are especially notable for the combination of these two vital requirements in the highest degree. They give the wearer that comfortable, well-dressed feeling so necessary for thorough enjoyment of opera, the . theater, etc. In the richest of silks—also lingerie—at. prices ranging up to $38.00.

It was a genuine revelation to the local theater-goers when the Baker company made its first appearance Sunday afternon in Mrs. Eiske's phenomenal success, "Leah Kleshna." This is conceded to he one of the greatest plays of recent times., and owing to its psycological nature one of the most difficult to present. Those who recalled the magnificent performance given by Mrs. Fiske and her splendid company two years ago were inclined to wonder what kind of a showing the Baker organization would make against the all-star cast which appeared in the great McLellan play. The first performance was, however, sufficient to dissipate all doubt in that direction. It was a complete artistic triumph for the company as a whole, and those who played the leading roles in particular. Lillian Lawrence fairly amazed even her most ardent admirers by the remarkably fine characterization of Leah, Mrs. Fiske's old role, while Edgar Baume, as Paul Sylvian; Donald Bowles, as Raoul, the absinthe fiend; James Gleason, as Shram, the thief, and Arthur Maekley, as Old Kleshna, are doing the finest work of the season. Manager Baker has fairly outdone himself in producing Leah Kleshna, the scenery being fully up to the Fiske standard. No discriminating player-goer can afford to miss this week's great performance.
