Tho "World's Fair" is by nil odds tlio
trashiest production over launched under tho
iiamo of Hlcu, and in lending hisiimuo to this
most common-place of commouplnco bur
lesques, ho Justllloii tho rumor that has Imh
heard so often of Into, that Hlco is going to
Strangely enough Hlco himself has ths
highest opinion of tho "World'H Fair." Ho
has stood by It through thick and thin, and
ho shows bis appreciation of tho plecoby glv
ing it his H.'if onul attention mid leading tho
orchestra at ouch performance.
Tho first act of tho miscalled extra vagatmi
shows tho dock of tho Hiintu Muriii, A. 1).,
WW, with Christopher Columbus, Columbia,
Captnln Kyd, etc. ActH two and threo ex
hibit various departments of tho world's fair,
Of courno thero is no attempt at a continu

thing nnd everything is introduced without
reason or excuse. 'Wo expect tlil In bur

tho "WoiM'm Fair" turloMiio in burlesqued ,
vulgaiity takes tho place of fun mid instead
of originality thoro is merely a reietltiou of
tho iliirureut features of other productions
and Imse Imitations they are.
Lillian Maehl who ns Columbia eshays u
rolo similar to that taken by Carrie Perkins
in "The Seven Ages" is a not uiiattrnctlvo
young voiiiaii,althougli she is not so successful
in her somewhat dilllcultpartasMIss Perkins.
Miss Virglnlu Earl's Christopher Columbus
is "cute" ami that is all. Bho spoils what
ever success sho might hnve had by her vub
garlty. James Hradbury mid tho othermem
bers of tho quartetto aro entitled to some
commendation. Tho rest of tho company
were second ruto low comedians and varloty
specialibts. Thero was not n single redeem
ing feature from the rise to tho fall of tho
curtain, nud tho (o-calltd lurid melodrama
scene was utterly bad. The gamer) nnd cos.

If wonro Inclined to bo over critical w ith
'Littlo Lord Fauntleroy" wo must remember
that the fault is Mrs. Frances Hodgson Uur
nett'sand not the diomatlst's. Much of tho
charm of the character of Fauntleroy is dis
pelledbytlw stilted and utterly unreason
able conversation which the littlo lord cur
ries cm with his mother and his associates!
but this Is duo wholly to tho original muuu

"Littlo Lord Fnuntleioy" Is u wholesome
story and tliero' is n wholesome iluvor to tho
pluy. True, its churucteis uro overdrawn,
mid thero is, iterhnps, a littlo too much gush
where them should bo only sBiiliment; but
thero is it pui ity In the charming little sketch
that is very winning.
