The Harry T. Butterworth Company HARRY T. BUTTERWORTH I&A EXCLUSIVE MANAGEMENT Mutual Lyceum Bureau Woodlawn, Chicago CAXTON-CHI. Mr. Butterworth. F EW men have made a more favorable impression on the public during the past four seasons than Harry T. Butterworth. His voice possesses unusual range and he sings with an artistic finish rarely found among the many musicians on the concert stage. The keen pleasure he feels in singing not only the heavier classical selections but also the humorous and popular songs is at once imparted to his audience, which adds to the mutual enjoyment of the program. At many places where he has appeared the desire has been expressed to hear him in a more elaborate program, where the opportunity could be given for a greater number and variety of bass solos, hence the company we are now offering. Those associated with him are also artists of great merit. Mr. Butterworth's bass was the grandest ever heard in this section. His tones are profound, musical and under wonderful control.— Dublin (Ga.) Courier-Dispatch. Mr. Butterworth is a concert in himself. He is a basso of marvelous power.— Rockville (Ind.) Republican. Mr. Butterworth, with his marvelous bass voice, completely captivated the audience and he was recalled again and again.— Monmouth (Ill.) Evening Gazette.

M ISS Georgia Harpster, soprano, also a most charming accompanist, has enjoyed the advantages of the best instruction in addition to an inherited musical temperament.

She is an honor graduate of the famous Cumnock School of Oratory of the Northwestern University and possesses the talent and womanly charm which win for her an ever increasing circle of admirers. One of the most commendable qualities predominant in her work is the purpose not only to entertain her audience, but to so interpret the masters of literature as to make a moral and intellectual impression on those who hear, and her naturalness and finish of form are qualities that never fail to commend themselves.
