The Old Danger of an Accident Be-
cause of the Stairway In the -
trance Has Been Removed and the
Steps Thrown Into the Alley.
A great many radical changes have
been made In the Norfolk Auditorium
during the past fosv weeks , but none
is moro drastic than the alteration
which has boon effected In regard to ,
the entrance , where an effort has been ,
made to do away with all chance of
an accident which might have resulted
in n Jam under the old conditions. t '
Steps In the entry-way have been torn
out and thrown Into the alley , and in
their place Is now a slanting lloor 1
which leads from the main door e > f the 1
theater up to the inner entrance.
was thought that under the old nr-'nt j |
rnngemeiit , with steep stops In that
little box of an entry-way , a crush of .
Jf people might cause broken limbs and
* perhaps more serious accidents but
under the now plan all danger has
been removed and the entry-way Is
considered accident proof because
there are no breaks In the lloor.
Behind the Curtain.
There are a number of other radical
changes in the building. As much
work and expense has been devoted
behind the curtain , on the stage and
/ under the stage , as out In the public
* portion of the playhouse. The dress
ing rooms used to bo conspicuous por- |
tlons of the Auditorium by their un-
cleanliness. Unsightly to a degree , no
care was over taken to make them
comfortable or even presentable to a
high class theatrical company. They
have been rebuilt , refurnished , sup
plied with heat and made much more
respectable in many ways. They are
now to be cozy enough for the most
discriminating star.
The expense of remaking the thea
ter will run between $1,500 and $2,000.
"Red" is the Word.
The Auditorium management takes
exception to the word "crimson" ns
used In these columns with regard to
the new color of the sldowalls. "Deep
rich red" Is the precise term applied 1
by the house managor. And so "deep
rich red" goes.
Three new furnaces are now In position -
sition to make heat for the theater and
it Is believed that there will bo no
longer the complaint of cold feet. And
carpeted aisles will keep down the
noise of feet.
Doors have been installed at the
entryways to the balcony , so that the
stairways will no longer act as chim
neys for drawing all of the heat. All
doors will be fitted against squeaking
as they formerly did.
Every effort is being made to fit the
house for the opening night next Tuesday
day evening , January 29 , when Alberta
Gallatin , presenting "Dorothy Vernon
of Haddon Hall , " will be seen here
for the first time.
The new drop curtain has been fin L.
ished with an entirely new painting
and advertising cards have been re
. . .
moved. A new finish has been placed
around the proscenium which it is be
lieved will add to the theater's attrac
tiveness. The celling is decorated
with a painting and differs In finish
on plain portions from the sldewalls.
The boxes , which have always been |
unfinished and crude , have been
touched up with an effort to make
them moro presentable.
Sounding Properties Helped.
Audiences hereafter , it is believed
will be able to hear what the actors
say. Many defects wore unearthee
and remedied. Among the most prom
inent factors under the old arrange
ment in making it impossible to hear
was the current of hot air from pit to
stage. This will be done away with
it is thought , under the new hentln. .
The Opening Show.
The following advance notice , fur
nished by the company , has been re
celved concerning Miss Gallatin ant :
her play :
In the realm of romantic drama this
season , there is no production more
elaborate and picturesque than that o"
"Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall , '
which Ernest Shlpman has prepared
for Miss Alberta Gallullu's starrin
tour. The scenes of Mr Major's rea
historic romance as dramatized by
Paul Kcster , all transpire within or in
the neighborhood of Haddon Hall , the
most picturesque and best-preserved
of Elizabethan manor houses ; and the
scenery has all been painted and con
structed after actual photographs ofd
the place. This work has been divided
ed among acknowledged experts in
their particular field who have repro
duced some of the beautiful scenes In
and about Haddon Hall in a most real
istic manner. The fact that practically
n whole wing of Haddon Hall has been .
built on the stage will give some idea
of the massivpness and solidity of this . ,
most elaborate production. ]
In the days of "Good Queen Bess"
the English court was one of the most
elaborately and picturesquely dressed
of all Europe , and the costumes used
in this production have been designed
from historic drawings and tapestries.

Hospital ( for Acute Female Cases , $60-
000 ; Cottage for Chronic Male Cases ,
$20,000 ; Stable , $7,500 Are All Needed - .

[ Prom Monday's Dallv.J
Over a dozen state legislators of
Nebraska visited the Norfolk Insane
mspltal during the day for the pur-
lose of recommending an approprla-
.Ion with an understanding of the In
stitution's needs. Dr. G. A. Young ,
the now superintendent , gave to each
of the visitors a typewritten statement
of what he considered needed by the
Institution. It calls for an appropria
tion of $87,500 for now buildings.
Dr. Young states that a new hospl-
tal for the acute female cases Is need-
ed. This , It is estimated , would cost
$00,000. It would be unlike either the
cottages or the now reconstructed west
wing , but would resemble the wing.
A new cotago for the male chronic
cases Is needed , which would cost $20-
000. A new stable capable of caring
for thorughbred stock , In order that a
large quantity and good quality of
milk may bo had. Is needed. This
would cost $7,500.
Sleeping in Attics.
The Institution Is now so crowded
that dormitories for the female pa
tients are being fitted up in the attics
of cottages and there in the garrets
these unfortunates sleep , because the
state has not provided more room.
Dining rooms In the cotages are being
L.made into dormitories , the dining
rooms being sent to the basements and
the heating plants which were In the |
cellars are being concentrated Into
„ Q „ „ „
. . . .B. . .
one main heating plant.
There are at present forty patients
from northern Nebraska in the Lincoln
hospital , who ought to be in Norfolk
because they came originally from this
hospital and were transferred to Lin
coln at the time of the fire. There
never has been enough room hero for
the return of those forty patients to
their own hospital. Their families
want them here , that they may visit
them moro easily.
The Instltulon now has a capacity
for 250 patients. The ntaural rate of I I
Increase would bring 140 moro above
the sixty to leave , In the next two I
years and this , with the forty brought
back from Lincoln , would make -1001
by the time the next legislature meets.
Lincoln has asked for a now building I
but Dr. Young contends that If the
forty from Lincoln are returned , the |
claim of J-incoln for a building will bo
For Chronic Cases.
Dr. Young and other insane hospital
authorities are much in favor of a bill
providing that each insane hospital In |
the state care for Its own aculo cases ,
which would change the Hastings asy-1
linn from ono for the incurable to ono
iko that at Lincoln or hero.
It was arranged that ( lip legislators
should meet Norfolk business men and I
citi/.ens at the Elk club rooms Monday
light , and it was announced that all
citizens , whether Elks or not , would
be welcome at the reception.
