Mr. Shrni haa added to tbe cumulative evjflrnc that New Tork era art wilting te take tbelr art diluted, and haa apparently saUrfied hlmaelf of tbe value of acenery la a theater. Another thing that escapee the attention of tb mod era play-goer ia tbe element of stag management- Out In front the patron of tbe drama aees only the result; he knowa nothing of tbe method, and too often h gives no thought to how th pleas ing resulta are obtained. H may notice en tb bill that Mr. So-and-so la stag director, but b- floeant worry himself about that. Aa a matter of fact, the value of the modern play depend to an unaua perted extent on th stage director. Par ticularly ia thla true of the picture" pieope that are ao popular. It may not be that tbe stag director haa devised any of theae, but to him la given tbelr execution, and on him depend tbelr success or fail ure. Hia duties- comprise an inflnltua of detail; be la not only required te have a highly developed aenae of tb artiaUc, but be must alao have a fun and complete grasp of the merely mechanical, and the Infinitesimal and innumerable things that enter into the construction of tbe various pictures be i called on to present- Hia aaaistante are numeroua. is be sure, put each has only his or ber particular de partment to look after, while the stage di rector muat look after all. 'With tbe de velopment of this feature of tb drama to the point it haa now reached, where tb ambitious manager will nndertak to repro duce on 'he stag anything, bo matter what, th stag director ha alas developed until he haa com to be a really high grade specialist. It is hi busy brain that work out the detail of all tbe artistic oonoep tlona of author and manager, and makes them presentable for the public, and it is hi tireless energy that keep them going sight after night, without a hitch. Be haa to see to it that not only the star, but every other member of hia company la In readiness at th beginning, sot e&iy of tbe play, but of each act; that the scenery 1a properly adjusted, that everything 1 In 11 proper place, that all the light are working right, that not an article that win be needed during the act ia misplaced, and finally, la th case of the musical produc tions, where there are big choruses, to see that the men and women are all In their right positions, not only for entrance, but la tbe line, an that they win make the correct appearance on the stage. He muat know the score of the music as weU as tbe director, must know every cue as wen a the prompter, and know several hundred other thing that neither nusioal director ar prompter bother their heads about. After keeping track of aa Interminable list f things that are ts he done or not done with the going up or earning Aowa of each cur tain, he is also required to direct and not infrequently Invent or improve on methods for the presentation of songs, choruses and Incidental scenes. Even where this latter accomplishment Is not expected of him, he is far from being Idle during the presenta tion of the play with which be happen to be connected. Omaha people have been given some tine examples of what a stage manager can do for tbe Buocess of a play During the pres ent season. One of the best, probably tbe very best, was "The Little Touches." Mr. George T. Marion, who, besides taking one of the leading oomedy parte ia tbe cast, is stage director for the company, is a vet eran, and naturally would be expected te make much of The material at his hand. But the perclslon with which everything moves ia the time the curtain Is up is not more remarkable than some of the innova tiona offered la the way of "buaineaa. One cf these Is the entrance of chorua la response to a recall. Very minor matter, but decidedly effective, when once you atop te think of it- Instead of crowding on the I stage as If anxious te get back te aing again, the Anna Held chorus girls are la aix day a Thi at first caused sken- 1 tidam ia medical circle, but tbe atiso- luts proof given through remarkable and successful lest lead u to emphatically state that it ta now possible ts absolutely and permanently cur th liquor habit ia three days aid tb drug habit In six days through a harmless vegetable compound which is neither nerve destroying or body wreikiag and it does it work in a wift. permanent and painless manner.

No announcement of a coming theatrical event haa carried with It so much interest as that pertains t the visit of William Gillette in "Sherlock Holmes" at Boyd's. which opena Tburaday for three nigbte and a matinee.

TVhil Mr. Gil lette'B dramatisation follow closely Mr. Doyle' novel, tbe main incident of the play center about a hitherto unpublished episode la the career of tbe great detec tive, Holmea.
