ABOUT PLAYS PLAYERS AND PLAYHOUSES
Last week tho Ferri Summer RtnoR com
pany had Its own way, for tho night war
too cool to admit of much Measure at the
out door resorts. By tha way, the present
season of the Ferris company la notable
In a rood many ways. Aa The Bee hns
hitherto net forth, the rompany Is far better
In, every way than any that has been here
In stock alnce the well remembered Wood
ward organisation, and is being kept up to
concert pitch by tha management. One at
leaet of Its weak points na" been made
Stronger, by the employment of a new
man for the "heavlea," and this will br
noticed this evening. Another thing notice
able Is the character of the attendance.
For several wwka the number of regular
season patrons who have been attracted
by the stock performance has been Increas
ing, until now one sees nightly faces
usually seen only during the winter at the
theater. The clans of plays presented so
far has been well within tho scope of ths
company's powers, snd as a whole ths
season so far has been a genuine success.
Warmer weather Impends, and ths out
door attractions are sure to have their
Innings; this will Interfere to some extent
with the Ferrla patronage, but It will be
only turn about. All the parks are well
fitted for taking care of attendance much
larger than any yet experienced, and when
ths warm wave does strike it will see a
rush for the vaudeville under the trees.
Why will actors, when dealing with a
piece translated from some foreign lan
guage, or one In which names of foreign
places are given, persist In singling out
some one word to be given Its foreign pro
nunciation, while all the rest are "done
Into English" of the most ordinary type?
This does pot refer to the .names of In
dividual, for it Is quits right that they
be given the orthoeplcal value of their
proper language, but to pick out some one
ether word which has a good English
equivalent and persist In rendering It alone
In French or German or whatever Its
mother tongue may b Is certainly an of
fense against good tsate and almost
amounts to a reflection on the Intelligence
of the audience. One Instance of this sort
Is recalled. An actor who la of consider
able note was four years ago playing
"Cyrano de Bergerac" In a production of
considerable pretensions. U gave the
character with much intelligent feeling,
and really scored a lilt In It. But he
marred the excellence of his performance
by a single fault, and refused to correct
It when his attention was called to It. He
poke all the poetry of the beautiful Ros
tand piece with force and effect, and In
good clear English except one word. In re
citing the verse describing the company
of Carbon del Castel-Jaloux he couldn't
apparently say Qaseony. Every stansa he
wound up with the broad statement, "We
are the cadets of Gass-kon-n-yea-a-a." The
effect this produced on an auditor sensitive
to consistency and good form is easily Im
agined. A more modern Instance of this
sort of misbehavior on part of the actor
was afforded at the Boyd during the last
week. Every other word save the names
of persons was given Its due English form
but Marseilles. This was persistently
called "Marslles," why the Lord only
knows. It Isn't good French, and It surely
Isn't English at all. These are little things,
but It Is on the little things, after all, that
a good production depends. Stage man
agers should watch these faults as olosely
as they do others, and should Insist that
. an English-speaking audience be not of
fended by such palpable mispronunciation.
Tt has been suggested by The Bee be
fore that dramatisation of novels Is a
ticklish -business and should enly be under
taken by a master. ' One .'reason for this
Is that novelists are, often Inclined to be
Inconsistent In their handling of heroines
and -heroes, but have opportunity to ex
plain In a measure some of their anach
ronisms and like slips of pen. But when
writer undertakes to boll down a novel,
and especially a long one, he Is quite apt
to find In tho end that he has only em
phasized the author's mistakes without a
possibility of clearing up any of them.
Take the case of Edmond Dantea for ex
ample. Dumas pore conducted him through
two fat volumes before he succeeded In
ultimately disposing, of . .him, and during
that long list of adventures he managed
to so interest the reader In what was
going on that no particular thought was
given to the actual man himself. Imme
diately the novel was dramatised and
"Monte Crlsto" became a stage fixture, the
charming Indifference' of Dumas to detail
became badly apparent. When "Edmond
Dantes was arrested on his arrival at ths
port of Marseilles he was a French sailor;
he had been before the mast and had risen
to the position of mate on the "Baron."
For eighteen years he was a prisoner in an
underground cell In the Chateau d'lf, from
which ho escaped In a way. only possible
In a novel. Two years later, he reappears
In Paris, a much traveled gentleman, with
a reputation established Vivat least three
continents, and more than that, with the
polish and address that other French gen
tlemen spend their lifetime in acquiring.
One doea not think of this whetv reading
the book, but on seeing the play one is
Irresistibly Impelled to Inquire how It would
be possible for the rough sailor to become
so familiar with the fine, manners and
speech of the best circles of educated
Parisian society. Did he study etiquette
during his long life In a dark dungeon, or
did he acquire his splendid address among
the Turks and his elegant carriage while
laying tigers In Algiers? This, too. Is a
little thing, but tt Is trus of a number
of plays that have been put before the
people with much success. One Is almost
Inclined to despair of the theater aa an
educational agency whan these facts are
taken Into consideration.
An English court has also come to the
rescue of the critic, and decides that a
theatrical criticism which presents the
reasonable opinions of the writer, although
some of them may be harsh and none of
them favorable, la not Jit!. A company
was severely slated by one of the provin
cial papers, and the manager brought suit,
as did some of the members of the com
pany. In England the reoognlzcd liberty
of the press dnea not begin to cover the
cope It does In America, yet the court
a mother should be a source of joy to all, but the suffering and '
danger incident to the ordeal makes its anticipation one of misery.
Mother' Friend is the only remedy which relieves women of the great
pain and danger cf maternity ; this hour which U dreaded as woman's
severest trial is not only made painless, but all the danger is avoided
by its use. Those who use this remedy are no longer despondent or
gloomy; nervousness, nausea and other distressing conditions are
overcome, the system is made ready for the coming event, and the
serious accidents so common to the critical
hour are obvitted by the use of Mother's
Friend. 'It is worth its weight in gold,"

held that the writer -and publisher were
clearly within tha limits of their rights.
This Judgment will be recognised as rea
sonable, for If a critic cannot have se
curity for the expression of opinion, and
must be under the apparent duress of a
suit for libel if his expressions do not suit
the persons under consideration, then his
opinions become worthless. In this con
nection It s worth while to note that
actors aa a rule do not take kindly to
criticism. Bo long as they are praised
they can stand It all right, but let a writer
undertake tp point out any of their faults,
and the trouble begins. This is not true
of all, for the really conscientious actor
welcomes Intelligent criticism as warmly
aa he does praise. Very few of them are
entirely satisfied with the way they do
their work and are continually looking for
opportunities to Improve. Its effect in de
tail Is best conveyed to them by the dra
matic critic, If he be competent, and on
his Judgment they learn to rely. Actors
are still human, and do not relish the un
mitigated abuse to which they are quite
often submitted by writers who like to say
"smart" things and who do not consider all
the elements of a performance for the- rea
son that by so doing their critiques might
lose some of their "piquancy." But the
honest critic never abuses anyone, and he
must feci that he is untrammeled In the
exercise of his calling or his work becomes
With an elaborate seenlo production of
the great romantic Russian melodrama,
"Michael Strogoff," the Ferris Stock com
pany will commence Its seventh successful
week at the Boyd theater Sunday night.
The management promises one of the most
magnificent scenic mountings of this play
that has ever been seen in Omaha, as Mr.
Ferris Is shipping here all the scenery used
by his Minneapolis company In this bill.
The play Is a strong romantic melodrama,
replete with love, villainy and sensation,
and every act ends with a climax. A very
sensn-tional entrance Is made by Michael
Btrogoff In the first act. when he arrives
with the Imperial guard, and It la then
that he takes the oath "For God, the czar
and for my country." In the second act,
which takes pluce In a post house on the
frontier, Michael Strogoff is Insulted by
being struck by a whip In the hands of
Ivan OcarefT. The third act, which is in
two scenes, shows first the telegraph office
on the' battlefield of Koullgrane and the
burning city of Koulyran in the
distance, and In the second scene
the ruins of Koulyran, which has fallen
Into the hands of the fierce Tartar and
Cossack tribesmen. In the fourth act a
startling climax la secured by the timely
arrival of Strogoff Just as the American
and English correspondents, who furnish
the comedy for the play, are about to be
put to death under the lash of the knout.
As the curtain goes up on the fifth act the
banks of the Augora river are shown, and
it is here that the arrival on a raft of the
two correspondents In the nick of time
prevents the killing of Strogoff's mother,
who had fallen into the hands of Strogoff's
enemies. In the sixth act Michael Strogoff
comes out victorious, kills his enemy, Ivan
OcarefT, and is reunited with his sweet
heart. For the last half of the week the
funny farce-comedy, "The Man from
Mexico," with Dick Ferris In the leading
role, will be the bill, . , . r. . .

": Because of the long continued period. tf
unseasonable weather the' summer resorts
have not been doing the volame of business
the month of June usually shows. It would
appear' that people are looking forward to
the time when they can enjoy outdoor
recreation. Judging from the very large
number which crowded ' 'Courtland ' Beach
and Lake Manawa last Sunday, the only
day that afforded sunshine, and warmth this
season. It Is probable that from this week
on the weather will make a decided change,
dropping from Its present frigid state to the
extreme opposite. In that event park, man
agers will have their hands full handling
the crowds. Lake Manawa and Courtland
Beach are particularly attractive this sea
son. Both have been beautified in every
department and much needed attractions
have been added. Both lakes are brimful
of water, which assures excellent bathing
and boating. At both places the fishing Is
excellent. Covalt's band of thirty-five
pieces furnishes the amusement at Lake
Manawa.' It is said to be a better organi
zation than tt was last season. Balloon
ascenslohs are given every evening, as are
the hundreds of other amusement features.
At Courtland Beach Prof; Ernest Nordln's
orchestra of sixteen pieces is In attendance
afternoon and evening. The daring aero
naut, Sam Murphy, makes dally balloon as
censions and the Frlese brothers, acrobats
and barrel Jumpers, are seen on the plat
form afternoon and evening. The switch

The assurances of "the weather man" of

Miss ZefTle Tilbury, at present leading

A writer sizing up the season In New
York says that of any of the runs of con
sequence in New York, with the exception
of "The Darling of the Gods," the only
memorable records In point of lasting popu
larity were those scored by musical com
edies. Of these the biggest run goes to the
credit of "A Chinese Honeymoon," that
pasxed Its 4uoth performance in New York
before It wore out Its welcome. Others fol
lowing it were "The Prince of PlNon," still
running there, likewise "The Wizard of
Oi," wTille among the others "The Rogers
brothers In Harvard," "Mr. Blue Beard,"
"Nancy Brown." "The Mocking Bird" and

length to make them worth while. In the

been Identified with the music of the Cath
olic churches of this city, has been ap
pointed organist and choir director of St.
John's Collegiate church, frequently spoken
of a Crelghton college church. Miss Judge
