The Coloners Wives," which is
to be presented next Wednesday
evening; Oct. 30th, by Mr. JSedley
Brovvn's Tdeal5 Compawrr direction
of Mr. Gustave Ffohman, is con
ceded to be the most fetching com
eav contnourea to tne stasre in
years. As it is to be produced
under the personal direction of the
author. Mr. Sedley Brown, a fault
less production is assured Tlfe
"ColoneL's Wives" is said to possess
all the humor and brilliancyof "Too
Much Johnson," "Jane," and
"Charley's Aunt" combined, v
the plot is more feasible than- that
of either of the afore-mentio'ried
"care-dispellejrs." The whoiestory
is based on strictly original'and
reasonable lines, which cannot be
said of many, .of the comedy suc
cesses of to-day. The humor is of
the spontaneous sort and the situa
tions something to afford laughter
for weeks to come. The storv in
brief is as follows:
An old friend of Colonel Mc
Veigh's, on his death bed, request's
that the Colonel marry his daughter
Marjority, the Colonel's junior by
many years. Th&: young - lady
acquiesces with, the understanding
that they go abroad and remain a
year passing as father and daughr
ter and that their relations shall be
such. Tins the Colonel consents
to and his real trouble begin. Mar
jory, being both young and beauti
ful, is soon surrounded by suitors,
among the number being three coL
lege students. For a lark she en
courages their suit and promises to
marry each of them providing they
obtain her "father's" consent. The
interviews between the young men
and the supposed father supplies
the first net work ot many compli
cations wich follow. The Colonel,
surmising that his 3'oung wife is
endeavoring to have some fun at
his expense, gives her hand to each
of the young men, in fact, promis
ing her to the stuttering student

Marjory's conduct and to make her
jealous gets up a violent flirtation
with Mrs. Honeybee, who is "fat,
fair and funny," and who is assidu
ously laboring to reduce he avoird
upois by the aid of dumb-bells and
out-door exercises. In' the mean
time, Ferrette, a female detective
has appeared upon the scene. in
search of a man and wife who are
confidence operators and who are
known to be passing themselves off
as father and daughter. She learns
of the Colonel's secret marriage and
prepares to catch her game. To
add to the complications which are
now arising fast and furiously, the
Colonel'sjirst wile, who is supposed
to have been lost at sea many years
ago, appears. She and Marjory
learn that there is a female detect
ive in tne liouse ana tuey eacn im

both set to work to obtain advice.
They eventually establish their
identity and the fun begius in earn
est, to the discomfiture of the Col
onel. Mrs. Colonel Washington
McVeigh No. 1 is anxious to re
establish herself as the iron-willed
ruler of the McVeigh establishment
while wife No. 2, who has met a
former lover, Count De Rockford,
is equally anxious to relinquish
her claim on the unhappy Colonel,
but tactly conceals her desires. In
a spirit or tun Mariory makes
things lively for everybody and the
attentions she bestows on the
Colonel is "gall and wormwood" to
the unexpected visitor from "the
bottom of the sea." Ferrette reap
pears and arrests Colonel McVeigh,
believing him to be a noted confi:

poses that he is being arrested tor
bigamy and cheerfully submits. He
admits that Mrs. McVeigh No. 1
and Rev. Savajre, the minister who
performed the ceremony, arc accom
plices and they too. are arrested.
Matters arcfinslly straightened out
and all ends happily, the Colonel
and his first wife being reunited
and Marjory marrying the Count.

comedies, was written especially
