WALLACE, DRAMATIC CRITIC, MAKES A DISCOVERY
Synopsis. Roso Stanton, of moderate circumstances, marries

year lives In idleness and luxury In Chicago. The life palls on her, sho
longs to do something useful, hut decides that motherhood will bo a big
enough Job. She has twins, however, and they nro put In tl'o caro of
a professional nurse. Itoso Lgaln becomes Intensely dissatisfied with
Idleness, so over the protest of her doting husband she disappears Into
tho business world to mnko good on her own Initiative, gets a Job In
the chords of a musical comedy In rehearsal and lives In a cheap
rooming house. Ilcr taste and Intelligence soon get her a place as
assistant to the producer. Her fashlonablo friends think sho has gono
Success And a Recognition.
There Is a kaleidoscopic character
ntiout tho events of tho ten days or
bo preceding tho opening performance
of most musical comedies which would
make n sober chronlclo of them seem
fantastically Incredible. This law of
naturo wade no exception In tho case
of "The Girl Up-Stnlrs." There were
rohearsnTH which ran so smoothly nnd
swiftly that they'd have done for per
formances; there wero others so ab
ominably bad that flio bare Idea of
presenting tho mess resulting from
six weeks' toll, before tho people who
had paid money to see It, was a night
mare. Of all the persons directly, or even
remotely, affected by this nervc-shnt-tcrlng
confusion, Ro3o was perhaps
tho least perturbed. Tho only thing
that really mattered to her was tho
successful execution of those twclvo
costumes. Tho phantnsmogorla nt
North End hall was n regrettable,
but noccssary, Interruption of her
more Important activities.
Sho wakened automatically at holf
past seven and wns down-town by
half-post eight, to do whntcvor shop
ping the work of tho provlous day re
vealed the need of.
At nine-thirty nn unheard-of hour
In tho theater the watchman nt tho
Globe let her In nt tho stogo door, and
Itoso had half nn hour, beforo tho ar
rival of the wardrobe mistress and
her assistant, for looking over tho
work dono since sho had left for re
hearsal tho day before.
Sho liked this quiet, cavernous old
born of a place down under tho Globo
stage ; liked It when sho hnd It to her
self beforo tho two sowing women
camo and later, when, with n couple
of sheets spread out on tho floor, sho
cut and basted nccordlng to her cam
bric patterns, keeping nhcad of tho
flying needles of the other two. After
her own little room, tho mero spa
ciousness of it seemed almost noble,
In beeping with tho good luck which
had attended everything thnt hap
ucned In connection with this first
venture of hers, sho wns able to tell
Ualbralth that both sets of cos
tamcB wero finished and ready to try
on on tho very day ho announced that
tho next rehearsal would be held at
cn tomorrow at the Globe,
Sho persuaded tho girls to wait un
til all six wero dressed In tho nftcr-
noon frocks and until sho herself had
had a chance to glvo each of them n
final Inspection and to mnko nfow
last touches and readjustments. Then
they nil trooped out on tho stage and
stood In a row, turned about, walked
hero and there, In obedlenco to Gnl
bralth's instructions shouted from tho
back of tho theater.
It was dark out thcro and dlscon
certlncly silent. The glow of two
cigars Indicated tho presenco of Gold
mlth and Block In the mlddlo of n llt
tlo knot of other spectators.
The only response Roso got thd
raly Index to tho effect her labors
hod produced was tho tono of Gal
bralth's voice. "All right," he shouted.
"Go and put on the others."
Thero wns another silence after
they had filed out on tho stage again,
rind this time In tho evening gowns
t hollow, hcnrt-constrlctlng silence,
almost literally sickening. But It last
cd only n moment. Then:
"Will you come down horo, Miss
Dane?" called Gnlbralth.
There was a Blight, momentary, but
perfectly palpable shock accompany-

And then, of course, there's the cos

think you've a talent for it.

"But," said Rose, a little breathless
well enough what had happened. But
It was all right. Sho was going on ns
if nothing had happened.
The other mnn was Jimmy Wallace
himself. lie released, too, a llttlo sigh
of relief when ho saw her off In her
stride ngnln after that momentary
falter. But he hardly looked at the
stage after that; stared absently nt
his program Instead, and presently
availed himself of the' dramatic crit
ic's license nnd left tho theater.
As for Roso herself. In her conscious
thoughts sho didn't recognize1 the hope J ly "but don't I have to stay here with tlien a lnwvor in the croun looked up

"You needn't telephone, Mlew

without another word, he put On his
hat nnd overcoat, wnlked straight over
to tho club and told the man at the
cigar counter to get htm n ticket for
tonight's performance of "Tho Girl
It was after five, nnd he decided he
might as well dine here. So he went
up .to the lounge, armed himself with
an evening puper, nnd dropped Into u
big leather chair.
But all his carefully contrived en
vironment hadn't the power, It seemed,
to shift the current of his thoughts.
aThey went on dwelling on tho bo-
havlor of Miss Beach and young
Crnlg, which really got queerer tho
more one thought about it. . . .
He flung down his paper and went
into the adjoining room. Tho largo
round table nearest the door was pre
empted by a group of men he knew,
and ho came up with the Intention of
dropping Into the one vncnnt chair.
But Just beforo the first of them caught
a glimpse of him his ear picked up tho
nhraso "Tho Girl Unstairs." And
Tho rest of It didn't matter to Roso
tho more guarded but nevertheless
cordlnl approval of tho two owners,
who had yet to make suro on tho fig
ures; and tho details of settlement,
which left her more than a hundred
dollars' profit, even after sho had de
ducted the hundred sho owed Rod
ney. The point tho point settled
by Gnlbrolth's praise was that she
Jt was, on tho whole,, a good bar
gain on -both sides. But Goldsmith
and Block enmo back next day and
drovo another bargain, principally to
their own advantage,
"You'vo certainly got a good eyo for
costumes, Miss Dane," Goldsmith said,
"and hero's a proposition we'd like to
make. A lot of these other things
wo'vo got for tho regular chorus don't
look ns good ns they might You'll bo
nblo to sco changes to mako In them
that'll lmprovo them maybo fifty per
cent. Well, you tnko It on, and we'll
begin paying you your regular salary
now; you understand, twenty-flvo dol
lars u week, beginning todny."
Roso accepted tho proposition with
a warm Hush of gratitude. But, from
tho moment her llttlo salary began,
she found herself retained, body and
soul, exactly as Gulbralth himself
was. They'd bought all her ideas, all
her energy, all her time, except a
few scant hours for sleep and a fow
snntched minutes for meals.
Sho gavo her employers, up to the
tlmo when tho ptqco opened nt tho
Globe, at a conservative calculation,
about flvo times their money's worth.
Even If sho hadn't been in tho com
pany, sho'd havo found something llko
two days' work In every twenty-four
hours, Just In tho wnrdrobo room.
Thero wnsn't a single costumo outsldo
Roso's own twclvo that didn't huvo to
bo remodeled moro or less.
On top of all thnt, tho really tor-'
rlblo grind of rehearsals begun:
property rehearsals, curiously dlscon
certlng nt first; scenery rehearsals
that caused tho stago to seem small
nnd cluttered up, and, last and ghast
liest, a dross rehearsal, which began
at seven o'clock ono night and lasted
till four tho next morning.
If you had seen them that morning,
utterly fagged out, unsustalned by
a sluglo gleam of hope, you'd have
said It was Impossible that they
should glvo any sort of perform
anco that night let ulono a good one.
But by eight o'clock, when tho over
turo was called, you wouldn't havo
known them for tho sanio people,
Thero wns tho feeling, on tho edgo of
this first performance, thnt they were
now on their own.
The appcaranco, back on tho stago
of John Gulbralth In evening dress,
Just ns tho cull of tho first uct brought

"I know you'ro tired," ho said
brusquely. "But I fancied you'd be'

leavo for New York on tho fast train.
So, you see, It wus now or never."
Strangely enough, that got her. Sho
stared at him almost in consternation.
"Do you mean you nro going away?"
Bho asked. "Tomorrow?"
"Of course," ho said, rather sharply.
"I'vo nothing moro to stay around hero
for." lie added, as sho still seemed
not to havo got it through her hend:
"My contract with Goldsmith and
Block ended tonight, with the opening
"Of course," she said in deprecation
of her stupidity. "And yet it's always

perversity again tho very freedom
with which sho said it spoiled it for

moro of a growl, really "but I sha'n't

company when they reallzo I'm gone."
"I shnll regret It very much," said
Rose. Tho words would have set his

"It seems too wonderful to be true,"
she said. "Yes, I'll come, of course."
Ho gazed at her in a sort of fas

It was out of the limbo of the un

or two of every day In Rodney's olllco
