CLEVER STAR AND SUPERB COM
PANY IN PLAY ,
JEROME'S COMEDY REFRESHING
Miss Irving nnd a Splendid Company
of Well Known Playfolk Were
Created by n Pretty Good Sized Au
dience , and Pleased Immensely.
Norfolk enjoyed n delicious ( rent
heatrlcally In the dainty production
) f Jerome's comedy , "SiiH.in In Search
of a Husband , " as presented by Miss
sabel Irving nnd a delightfully clever
company of well known players. It
vas a prolty good slx.ed nudlenco that
attended the play In the Auditorium
mil the evening's entertainment made
in Immensely plouHlng Impression.
The play Is just a simple little story
woven by the artful pen of Jeromu In-
o a quiet , and refreshing comedy ,
liialnt nnd satlt-fylng In Its wholesome
wit and humor. But the company of
actors presenting "Susan In Smirch of
i Hnslmnd" are superior to the play
( self. Probably no company contain-
ng such an ample quantity of clever
ihiyfolk has hitherto come this way.
Miss Irving played well the stellar
role. Her bewitching little laugh
found nn easy path right straight to
the hearts of her hearers. And then ,
lee , she was abundantly capable to
miidlo the girl-like character as Susan
searching for the man to whom she
Imd been wed many years ago. She
could probably enjoy n much larger
audience If she were to return to Nor
folk another year , now that her clever
ness and a star Is firmly established
Miss Jessie Izctt , who has heretofore
starred in her own right , closely
pressed upon Miss Irving for the ovon-
Ing'a honors and she , too , made friends
In Noroflk. Her girlish vivacity and
her natural simplicity made her espec
ially attractive . Hacsard Short , who
has played with Mary Mannerlng , Will-
lam H. Crane , John Drew and Kleanor
Hobson , made a decidedly favorable
Impression as Lord Rathbone. He Is
an English player and his Impersona
tion of the English lord was splendid
because it was so natural and KO true
to the character. Herbert Standing ,
who played the part of "The Doctor , "
Is an English comedian and his work
In this piece Is a hit. A ( ! . Andrews ,
In the role of 'the constable , who was
for fifteen years with Mansfield , was
droll In his humor and at once popular
with the audience. Only one fault
could bo lound in his role ho was still
locked up asleep In the closet when
the play ended , and people wanted to
see him again. Misn Marie Wainwright -
wright , whose name has been associat
ed prominently with the American
stage for many vears and who formerly
appeared as a star here , made an ex
cellent old English lady and her tears
were artistic to a c'egree.
The whole play and its presenta
tion , so quiet and simple yet so truly
enjoyable , was a relief from many pro
ductions that teem with fevered action
and excitement. Norfolk will be glad
at any time to receive with open nrnifi
Miss Irving and her splendid com

WEST GABLE CRASHES DOWN IN
WALLS ARE NOT PROTECTED
The Second Portion of the High School
Walls to Go Down Before a Strong
Wind Capitulated Yesterday After ,
noon on West Side ,
[ From Tuesday's Daily. ]
The exposed gable on the west side
of the old high school building toppled
over before a heavy wind nt 5:15 : yes
terday afternoon , taking with It as it
fell a large part of the west wall. The
wall fell outward , some of the bricks
falling beyond the sidewalk. A short
time ago part of the east wall was tak
en out In the same way , an exposed

At the time the east wall wont down
t was pointed out by competent au-
horitles that the same thing would
Imvo occurred In an entirely now build
ing If the walls stood unsupported.
The occurrence did not bear on the
strength of the walls one way or the
other , It was said , for no unprotected
wall could withstand the leverage that
ihe exposed gable afforded the wind.
Architect J. C. Stltt at the time the
east wall went out warned the board
that the same thing would happen on
Lho west side If steps were not taken
to have the upper part of the wall tak
en down. This would protect the low
er walls , the condition of which ho
When the west wall crashed down
yesterday afternoon It may not have
touched the arguments concerning the
conditions of the standing walls but
It changed the situation to the extent
that it lessened the value of the old
walls for rebuilding purposes. The
standing wall area was reduced and
the value of the salvage , as represent
ed in the walls as they had stood in
tact , was lowered by several hundred
Chamberlain's Ccugh Remedy Is Both
Agreeable and Effective.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has
no superior for coughs , cold nnd
croup , and the fact that it Is pleasant
to take and contains nothing In any
way Injurious has made It a favorite
with mothers. Mr. W. S. Pelham , a
merchant of Klrksvllle , Iowa , says :
"For more than twenty years Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy has been my
leading remedy for all throat troubles.
It is especially successful In cases of
