THE JUNGFRAU KAPELLE
The woond entertalnmen of this talented oompany was not so well patronised last evening as It deserved to have been, the management doubtless suffering eonilderably from the fact that scarcely •ny oountry people were able to come In, •■ all onr farmers are very properly Baking the mest of the magnificent harvest weather to gather Is the crops. There was consequently only a very moderate home bat the entertainment was even more pleasing than that given on the opening night. There was an entire change of costumes as well as of programme, the company on this ocoasion appearing !n the plotnrespue Swiss dress of the jeventtentb oenturp. The concerted pieces were perfect In exeoution and In tbebala'noe of parts, and the solos upon the Either, cello s'ther, xllophone, mandoline •to were all excellent. A descriptive piece, *' The Mountain Gnomei," evoked a vociferous encore, m response to which "The Turkiih Patrol," the gem of the Company's rtpertoire, was again exquisitely tendered Later on a selection intituled <* Post Cards," introducing solos on the either, cello-zither, xilophone, and other instruments, was given moat charmiogly ; and towards the close a very clever drum solo wii Contributed by Herr Adam Beebold. The duet and jodel, "Die Hochzeit," Hejr Mang and Fraulein Uhl, -waa one of the most pleasing of these characteristic vocal performincoa, and the solo on the cello-zither by Prof ssor Seebold, with harp accompaniment by Madame Seebold.also deeervesepeoial mention. The oborus and j del " The Ouokoo Song" and the descriptive sextette referred to m our notice of the first periormanoe were enthnsiastloally appUoded, it* latter being evidently a great favorite with the andlence. Lastly (for it is not neotscarf to refer to every Item m detail) tribute of praise must In jaatloe be aoforded to Madame Seebold for her song "Beauty Sleep and the enoore "So B«a» end yet so Far " In both of which fee* powerful, true and welMralned voice wm heard to greet advantage. Altogether ffcff entertainment Is the best we have had here for many a day and those who missed It missed a treat. We, however, oannot help saying that the management made a mfcttka In fixing the prloas at 4i for front eeatf* A rate inoh as this l», In these times, almost prohibitive especially to large famltiM, and had the admission been fixed at 2i and 3s we believe the nett result would have been very muoh better. Perhaps other travelling companies may Me tnalr way to take the hint.
