The author himself was unhappy
at the time because of the death of

created a joyous and light-hearted
opera of rural life, which was im-
mediately popular and which has in-
creased rather than declined in pop-
ularity since 1870. Eventually it was
produced in other nations, such as

beauty in dress for comfort, but rather harmoniously
combine the two - a natty pair of sport togs, trim
but comfortable slacks, a light, novel blouse, topped
off by a gaily colored halter, will do the trick, or the
