Biiie of pleasurable curiosity the
eouiinjr of Kdward Johnson tenor
last night; awaited with obvious an-
ticinatiou of pleasure but still in that
"V 3 u'1" expectant suppressed vaguely
criticiil manner in which a 'crowd
await the hitherto unheard.
Out of this pregnant silence of lit-
uuhcurd thought whisperings
"ai i came Edward Johnson and his ueeorn-
l'f.iiist. blithely sweeping away unborn
prejudices in a wave of joyousness
for the coming of a personality that
uugurcd the very best.
No one was disannointed. The
dainty contrapuntal cadences of Stra-
(leliu's delicious "Se nel ben" were
; given in a rich lyric quality of tone
; without effort appealing alike to the
1 ear and the intellect with sure
J craftsmanship of art. The singer
; chose "I'hillis has such charming
J .graces" for his second number and
2 . carried on the picture of a richer
I civilization umi courtlier days before
S the era of the glorification of cou-
secntive octaves or the blutancy of
jazz. What a glorious rest to one's
I enjoyment of sheer beauty to hear Mr.
t Johnson's mellifluous tenor in such
gracious melody! The dramatic
modernism of Andrea Chenier. that

The Woman's choral club was thelv
heard in some most creditably given
" songs for women's voices really ad-
mirably directed by Hu. T. Hut'f-

Johnson's next song and Hue's ori-

after that there was a brief interval

little Amerirutt song ' Sunrise and

The final grmip started cut with
Mary of Argyle nhe lovely St. T.cge-r

trived to wrap in the mysterious at-
mosphere of the Scottish Highlands
well known to one who has wandered
in the mists and over heather and
loves them. Kreisler's magic touch in
transforming the simple motif of the
vivid old Ieezie Lindey succeeded and
here again tin atmosphere was given
; by subtle suggestion that united with
a superb voice makes a work of art.
There was no let down. Mr. Johnson
doc not play to the gallery. The dul-
cet measure of "Prink to Me Only
With Thine Lyes" came tiext and one
listened with h:tlf a dozen preconcep-
tions knowing that the right interpre-

old ballads in l ister. One of them was

evening finisli'd with Moore's "Min-
strel Itov" and a fine dramatic "re
quest" offering of ihe aria "with the
sob" from I'agltueci.
The Woman's Choral club is as-
suredly to he congratulated on its wis-
dom in bringing this splendid Ameri-

AND ROUGH SKIN
"So bonny and meet so fully compute.
She steals our ofieilicns d;eiy man'
If it were not for the natural oils
which the skin gets from your sys-
tem you couldn't endure the
chapped condition which would re-
sult from exposing it to raw winds.
But most men and women uncon-
sciously tike away those oils from
the skin when they wash with soap
and water right along and never
think of helping to put them back.
There Is only one right way to
keep the skin smooth and soft
without making It too greasy. Just
rub a thin film of the cold cream
which bears the well-known Black
and White label Into the skin each
.Bight. It Is prepared especially to
i'work Into the porea glands and
-tiny crevices to supply the olla
they must have to keep the skin ac-
Jlve and lovely.
Your first experience with Black
nd White Cold Cream will be so
Tjlellghtful that you will never !
-without It. It makes the skin so
: smooth soft and rood to look at
" Th 50c size contains nearly three
times as much as the liberal 25c
I size. All dealers carry It in stock.
