NORFOLK'S ' KIND OF A SHOW . .A Musical Comedy , With Plenty of Girls , Fun and Music. Laughter , smiles , tears , show-girls , comedians , tuneful , musical , dramatic situations , elaborate costuming and Hcenlc display , are all promised Nor folk theatre-goers when Broadway's favorite comic opera star , Grace Cameron oren , makes her appearance In C. II. Kerr's latest , biggest and best success , "Little Dollle Dimples , " which Is now In its second year , at the Auditorium , Saturday night. This piece cannot bo termed a mus leal comedy , nor Is It hardly after the style of the old fashioned comic opera , but Is classed more In the line of a musical drama. Miss Cameron , whose voice is that of the lyric or coloratura us well as a dramatic soprano , will bo lieard to great advantage in the var ious solos and finales , which are far better , musically speaking , than the average musical comedy or comic opera affords. Yet she appears in her lUtle baby impersonations which have made her famous In the vaudeville halls of all Europe and America. Her part was fitted to Miss Cameron , taken from the most notable success she has achieved , as Dollio Dimples In "Plff PafC Pouff , " at the Casino theatre in New York , and to say that this part is the best that Miss Cameron has ever had an opportunity to appear in is but putting it mildly. There arc sliow girlS'galore , pony ballets , chappie ichorus , and all that sort of thing whlcl goes to make up the average musl cal comedy performance ; but over anc nhove this , there is one of the mos notable casts that has ever appeared in an entertainment of this kind Prominent among the comedians of the company is Al. Lawrence , the cele brated mimic , "the man of a hundred faces. " His delightful impersonation of the simple and ignorant countrj hey , who comes to the city and accepts a position in a stylish family , attempt ing to pose as an English butler , leads up to many excruciatingly funny com plications ; and his attempt to master the English accent affords no end o amusement. Mr. Will Phllbrlck as sumes the role of a pettifogging law > er who Is mercenary in the extreme and he is willing to do most anything for money ; but when he has to make love to old Aunt Matilda Dunn , the penurious but wealthy old New Eng land spinster , his deslro for mone > almost forsakes him at times. Still his attempts to win the old woman's money without her caresses are funnj in the extreme. Speaking of the character actor of Matilda Dunn , Miss Florence Langdon Tempest , who made such a distinct hit in the production of "Sam Houston , " at the Garden Theatre In New York City , also in the characte rolp with Thomas W. Ross in "Check irs , " is originating the unique comedj character , and one that stands ou prominently in the production. Mr Louis London , the well known young baritone , who has gained enviable notoriety on the other heart breaker Miss Daisy King assumes the role o Maymp Green , an adventuress , and her clear soprano is heard to good ad vantage in the musical numbers given 1o this role. Besides a large chorus , both inal and female , a bevy of pretty show girls , and a charming pony-ballel numerous extra added features ar carried by this attraction , Including the great'musical act of the Crlterio Musical Four , whlcli made such a ter rific hit in the New York Roof Garde in the past summer. Miss Phoebe and Jessie Caulownl present an elaborate electrical dancln novelty with full chorus ; Miss Ola Fa her appears in her celebrated vloll specialty and the Elm City male quai tette render many pleasing vocal se lections. This attraction is one of th gala bookings of the season and on of the most Important events. The seat sale will go on at The New business office Friday morning. Ther is every Indication that the Audlto rlum Saturday night will be packet with one of the largest audiences o the season. Norfolk always did like a muslca comedy , filled with catchy songs and funny people. Norfolk likes to laugh nt a show , and forget its troubles. That's why Norfolk likes the Prince of Pilsen , the Isle of Spice and the Mayor of Toklo. That , too , Is why Norfolk will like Little Dollle Dim ples Saturday night. Miss Cameron Is one Nebraska girl who has achieved theatrical distinc tion In Now York and London. She has already earned her reputation and she will delight Norfolk. Al. Law- ivnro , one of the country's best mimics and fun-makers , will also bring down the IIOIIKC , Tills engagement will ho one of the vents of the season In Norfolk and limy out of town people arc expect- d for the attraction.

COMES TO NORFOLK SATURDAY Miss Cameron Will be Seen In "Dollie Dimples" Here. Grace Cameron makes her debut as a star in Norfolk at the Auditorium ) ii Saturday night , in the tender , piqu ant dramatic and nursical success , 'Little Dollie Dimples , " by C. II. Kerr , author of "The Beauty Doctor , " "Over the Fence , " "Papa's Baby , " etc. Miss Cameron's role is founded in part on a song which endeared her to the hearts of New York theater-goers when "Piff Paff Pouff" had Its long and successful run at the Casino. Miss Cameron has made many not able successes In important comic opera productions , including the "Bos tonlans , " When Johnny Conies March ing Home , " The Tenderfoot , " "Foxy Qulller , " etc. , but her biggest and most pronounced hit was that of "Little Dollie Dimples , " when she played op posite Eddie Fey at the Casino theater for nearly one entire year. Hence her present management In selecting a play to suit Miss Canierons ability , wisely founded her part and fashioned it after tills notable selec tion. "Little Dollie Dimples" is by no means a light and airy or frivolous musical performance , but is of the bet ter class of comic opera , the music being high class yet tuneful , the plot being absolutely consistent , the story and plot complete in detail as well as intense In dramatic construction. Pathos and tears are mingled with laughter Incessantly , not unlike David Warfiold's great success , "The Music Master. " In fact many of the scenes and situ atlons in their simple yet Intense dra < matlc force , are very much upon the order of the "Music Master. " In one scene where Miss Cameron appears as a poor , ragged , yet amusing little waif , she keeps her audience convuls ed with laughter , as she stands by the side of a table loaded down with all sorts of good things to eat , her little mouth watering and her eyes sparkl ing to think of the feast she is going to have as soon as the guests of her stingy old auntie have departed.

John O'Grady at the O'Grady home , north of Sioux Falls , will not be tried on the charge of murder , as had generally boon ex pected. State's Attorney Orr appeared be fore Judge Jones , of the state circuit court , and moved that fclie charge against Mrs. O'Grady be dismissed. It appears that diligent search has failed to bring forth anything in the shape of evidence upon which a con viction could be based , and under these circumstances the state's at torney asked that the case be dismiss ed , and Judge Jones go ordered. Mrs. O'Grady was under a heavy bond for her appearance In the state circuit sourt , and this now will be released. John O'Grady was mysteriously shot and killed while seated in his home. One feature which pointed to the Innocence - cence of Mrs. O'Grady and which has not heretofore been printed In any newspaper concerning her actions Im mediately following her giving alarm at the home of a neighbor that her husband had been shot and killed. The neighbor and his wife returned to the O'Grady home with Mrs. O'Grady. A lighted lamp standing on a table revealed 'thd body of the old man on the floor , but the neighbor and his wife did not at the time enter the house , remaining at the doorway and poring into the room In which the body lay. Mrs. O'Grady , however , entered the room , without hesitation , and going up to the body of her husband lifted the head and placed her cheek abainst that of the dead man , plteously called his name and urged him to speak to her. Those who have had much to do with , criminals declare that this action clear ly was an evidence of Innocence , and that had Mrs. O'Grady really been guilty of the wanton murder of her husband she would.have shrank from the body Instead of caressing the face and head of her dead husband.
