TITE OMAHA ILLUSTRATED BEE. Gossip About Plays, Players and Playhouses X - - HE last week ti a busy one with manager all over tha country and by tha end of the coming weak the theatrical Mason of -) will be well under way. Styles vary and much of man's being that of method tastes chanx, but that nature Is apparently Immutable. AY hat little w know Is so Inftnltexlmally smnll compared with what we do know that From every city come reports of theaters sometimes endeavor seems useless, but the opening and of companies start) nc, and the mall Is full of m&nacerlal notifications as to their Immediate Intentions, all point Ins;' to the busiest season the stace has known in many years. No trepidation, owing to the more or less serious disasters Inherent desire to learn the unknown Is always ready to spur the Investigator on. Present day problems afford as much In terest to the Inquirer as ever, but the widening of human experience has been fol of the last two seasons. Is Indicated by the lowed by an almost equal broadening of i'i vpB.rn.wonF, ana it is plain that the men who have their money Invested In amuse ment enterprises are confident of sharing with others In the general prosperity now being- enjoyed by the country. Omaha Is sure to share In this activity, the addition of the II ur wood theater adding Just that much to the Importance of the city from a theatrical business standpoint. This bouse will very likely be ready to open on the Kith Instant. The Boyd will begin Its regu lar winter season on tomorrow night, and a probabIei .olutlons for veed questions have 11 uiu kyua.j wie urpnuuui win open. The Kruff has bean rrindlnr tv&v Inra human thought, one effect of which has been to reduce to almost a minimum the element of speculation In dealing with the various factors of social existence that come under consideration. It Is to this conservative attitude that much of the so called romance has been removed from the drama, for authors and actors alike are more and more attracted by realism and undertake to faithfully present facts rather than mere theories. Possible, If not early In August, and la doing a very satis factory business, although It has bad to compete with the parks In some decidedly hot weather. With the coming of cooler nights the crowds that go to see the melo dramas will grow to their old-time propor tions. All the local theaters were bright ened up during the summer vacation, and were never more attractive In appearance than now. Manager Relter will have the box office at the Orpheum open ail this week, in anticipation of the opening of the season next Sunday. One of the greatest blessings vouchsafed to man U his Inability to forest what la coming to him. lie may Imagine certain events as likely to occur, and can plan his future on a speculative basis, but the only certainty he wots of deals with what has already transpired and Is reckoned aa past. This Is why we are continually turning our eyes from the blank wall Just ahead of us to the easjr. and oftentimes satisfactory retrospective vista that leads back along the highway of human achievement. The only regret that can seriously affect this is that our Judgment of the present Is likely to be warped by remembrance of what baa occurred. Nowhere Is this more manifest than In connection with the stage. So universal haa the custom- become to compare present performance with past achievement that even the most optlmlstio and cheerful of the reviewers are tinged with a spirit of disparagement In their dealings with the drama and its exponents. Now and then someone undertakes to In sist that the present Is as good as any thing the past had, and places left vacant are being very acceptably filled; even go ing to the occasional extreme of saying that In some ways progress has been made. But these ebullitions of hope are quite apt fee) met by frowns of scepticism or the VMralouR shrug of Incredulity and the voice of hope is again silenced. Every age has had Its genius, and none has been utterly devoid of worthy achieve ment, and as the present is heir to all the past, It Is not at all flattering to ourselves to admit that we are not doing things aa well as they used to be done. Along cer tain lines of endeavor we may not have ac complished Just what was done before our day. In certain directions a limit may have been reached, but this Is by no means established. "What man has done that man may do" Is a trite saying, but It Is alwsys applicable, and nowhere does it apply with greater force than It does right here. It Is probably true that the present age seems more prosaic and matter of fact than any, but this la very likely be cause It Is the one we live In. Research and discovery hare done away with a great deal of the material from which the romance of the past was manufactured, but the progress made has not in the least extinguished the desire for further advent ure latent in the nature of every well con stituted and normally healthy individual. Men and women are just as prone to go on quests today as ever, the main difference been offered, although the deeper questions that concern man In his gregarious state have been but lightly touched upon aa yet. The great dramatists who have dealt with these subjects have applied themselves to a more or less superficial consideration of some of the minor phases, realising as do all Investigators, that knowledge has scaroely begun to unroll "her ample page rich with the spoils of time." They there fore feel constrained to move carefully in what they undertake, believing that the next day likely will bring forth new dis coveries which may u;set all existing theories, and compelling the reformation of thought. The advantage of this Is that It dispels dogmatism, which was so great a part of the working capital of the men but lately called to their rest. With the abolition of dogmatism has not come a loss of faith, and hope bums brighter than ever. Patient endeavor moves slowly for ward, and. If the drama of today does not glow with the genius that marks that of other days, it Is not because the genius does not exist, but because It Is grappling nearer than ever with problems of life, and feels more keenly than could Its predeces sors the uncertainty of the path along which It proceeds. It may not get Its meed of contemporaneous recognition, but It Is certain that future generations will pay to some who live and work now the tribute due to those who build better than they know. Quite a distinct departure from the beaten path, and one that Is fraught with great possibilities, Is "The Maker of Men," ture. even If they should be disappointed in their expectations, and when she has gotten him Into a responsive mood she tells him the truth. He takes the blow philosophically, and the act ends with the husband feeling It Is better to have such a wife and two such fine boys than to be manager of any bank. The lesson taught Is that of healthy content. This has been preached to us since the time of Solomon, at least, but it Is rarely given such prac tical application aa In "The Maker of Men." Tills sort of content Is not tnt which breeds sloth and stagnation. It Is the content of a healthy mind, which Is not satisfied with conditions that can be Improved, but which does not give way In face of what seems the Inevitable. It Is a content that does not cease to struggle, but looks forward with the dawn of each new day In the bright hope of doing some thing worth while. "They also serve who only stand and wait," but not nearly so well as they who do the humble appointed task because It has been set for them, keeping always mind and body In condition to take up a higher and more responsible place If called upon. The discontent that leads one to discouragement and a cessa tion of effort because success seems un attainable Is the thing to be avoided. The truly happy man is the one who tries every day to make himself useful, and who has sufficient self-respect to believe that the world Is better each day because he is living In it and trying to make It a bright and cheerful place for others to live In. And this Is happiness that can only be purchased by work. It Is not for the Idler, but is within the reach of everyone who will take hold and do something. Coming; Eventi, The scenes of "Sunday," the new play In which Charles Frohman presents Miss Ethel Barrymore at Boyd's theater on Monday and Tuesday, and which ran for three months to crowded houses at the Hudson theater In New York, are laid In a western mining town and In England. Sunday is a young girl, the daughter of an Englishman who had tried his fortune In the far western mining town and had died, leaving her a baby In the care of his four partners rough, big-hearted fellows. When the play begins she has become a young woman, tenderly cared for and educated by her guardians. They have realized that she Is entitled to a better schooling than Is available at home and are about to send her to a convent. But a young English man, the black sheep of a wealthy old family, has taken a fancy to her and draws a glittering picture of the life they two could lead In London. Sunday thinks he tlnn and Mr. Ponaldson relates with con siderable pride how he aided the distin guished Norwegian In many ways and was afterwards vaccinated by him. Becoming interested In some of Ibsen's manuscripts, the embryo actor Joined a traveling com pany and played a wide range of parts. He came to this country ago and starred In "Ton Tonson" and "Ole Oleson." The actor has many experiences to relate of life In the northern lumber ramps where be played with these com panies, the audiences being made up wholly of Swedes who voiced their approval not In the conventional hand clapping, but In loud voiced whoops. Mr. Donaldson has appeared as "The Prince of I'llson" over a thousand times. cation of Mr. HrP." the clever Gibson cnmeily bv Augustus Thunins, which hod such a long run In New York last year, to the preparation of a cook book. In It he threatens to toast and roast everybody he knows, and It Is feared by those fainlllnr with the sharpness of his sarcsstle moods that he will turn out several novel recipes.

Last night "Veron Ique" was played at the Apollo for the four hundred and fiftieth time; "The Catch of the Season," at the Vaudeville, for the three hundred and ninety-fourth time; "Lady Madcap," at the Prince of Wales, for the two hundred and forty-sixth; "Leah Kleschna," at the New, for the one hundred and eighth, and "The Walls of Jericho," at the Garrlck, for the three hundred and fourth. The long run is therefore a timely topic, and It will be Interesting to recall a few of the remarkable things that have been achieved In that direction. A few particulars, also, about record short runs may appropriately be given. approaching Its rth night In London.

Its possibili ties He in the fact that It deals more di rectly with one of the greatest problems of life than has been the custom, and in troducing, as It does, a homely and prac tical phase of existence,. It teaches a most valuable and needed lesson In that practical philosophy which sustains the healthy minded under adversity and disappoint ment. The play Is a dialogue between bus band and wife. The man is a bunk clerk, poor and more or less harrassed by bis poverty and the Increasing needs of bis growing family. He tells his wife that he soon expects to be made manager of the bank, with a corresponding Increase in salary, and that then their troubles will be over. While they are discussing this pleasant prospect a messenger arrives with a letter from the bank which the husband thinks contains notification of his promo tion. He hands it to his wife to open and she discovers 1tl It the announcement that one of the Junior clerks haa been given the post to which her husband was looking forward. With that wonderful sympathy that distinguishes the wife and mother from the mere companion she sets about to picture him the happiness they have enjoyed in their station, how well they have gotten along in spite of the poverty both have felt and how much they have to hope for In their two boys.

She is Indignant at the Insult, and as be seizes her In his arms, Jacky, the youngest of the four miners, appears and shoots him down. Sunday Is sent at once to the convent, from which she Is later taken to England by her father's relatives. Sunday meets and loves Colonel Brlnthorpe of Brlnthorpe Abbey. He Is the brother of the man killed by Jacky.' It Is not long before he proposes marriage to Sunday, and It is not until then that Sunday fully realizes her position. She cannot marry him without telling him his missing brother was killed while insulting her, be cause that would incriminate Jacky. She Is obliged to reject blm and gives as her rea son "A man Is between, us." He supposes It to be a former lover, and she, to stop further Inquiry that might lead to Incrim inating Jacky, allows him to think so. The last act Is laid in her far-western home. The four miners are delighted to have her back again and the old life Is going on In much the same old way, when Colonel Brlnthorpe arrives. Sunday tells him the story of the shooting. The colonel loves Sunday and Is satisfied that his blackguard brother deserved death. A merry, bright and clean farce, "Mrs. Temple's Telegram," which ' comes direct from Powers' theater," Chicago, after a successful of run of three months, will be the attraction at the Boyd theater on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday even ings. The play tells of the adventures of one Jack Temple, who, having been com pelled to stay out all night, returns to his wife in the morning and endeavors to ex cuse his unavoidable absence by telling her the truth. Finding that this is disbelieved he resorts to a lie, which for the time being serves his purpose, but which Anally Involves his entire family household and friends, stirring up a condition of affairs and tangled situations that furnish abun dant amusement for everyone.

"Arizona," which Is announced as the attraction at the Krug theatre for two nights and two matinees, starting with a matinee today, promises to be one of tho dramatic treats of the season and Is too well-known here to need any description. The story Is of a rancher's daughter marry ing an elderly colonel of the United States cavalry, and tiring of his attention, she plans, or rather Is forced to submit to the planning of Captain Hodgeman to flee Ith him and leave the stifling , sands of Arizona, forever. The plan Is balked ' by the daring conduct of Lieutenant Denton, the special friend of Colonel Bonham. As to be expected, the situation turns against Denton and Hodgeman escapes for the time being without even the suspicion of guilt, only to receive his Just deserts in the end. There will be a special popular priced matinee on Monday (Labor day,) September 4. For two nights and Wednesday matinee, starting Tuesday night, "A Girl of the Streets" will be the attraction at the Krug theatre. This play exposes to public- gaze a social strata that haa never been seen on the stage before. It is said to be one of the moot vitally human plays written In years. The engagement la for two days only. The patrons of the Srug theatre will have the pleasure of witnessing a new play Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The play Is IJncoln J. Carter's latest, 'The Eye witness," showing the struggles of a young man to save his home from falling into the hands of his cousin, "the vllllan." During the action of the play the principles are carried through all kinds of exciting ad ventures and hairbreadth escapes, and gor geous scenic and electrical effects. There will be the usual matinee Saturday. Over. tAbout. Augustus Thomas, as may be recalled. Is of the strenuous sort. And he believes that he has brought his family to look upon the art of self-defense In the right light. "My eldest boy, Luke." said Thomas recently, "has always been my chum and comrade. Wishing to bring him up with a proper respect for the strenuous life, I taught him most carefully and showed how, If attacked, he could counter a blow and so strike back as to land on the point of his opponent's Jaw and put the other fellow out. He had the thing down pat, and aa he had had con siderable trouble with a neighbor's son. Tommy Perkins, I told him to be sure and land on Tommy's Jaw the next time he got sassy. Two days later Luke came Into the house with his right eye In deep mourn ing. 'Met Perkins, eh?' I asked. 'Did you follow my Instructions and land on his Jaw?' "Yes, father,' answered my son. 'And did he go out?' 'Yes, f.ither. He went out all right, but about five minutes later he came back wrth a brick." " Richard Golden tells an amusing anecdote of a Scotch property man who was con nected at one time with the same organiza tion of which Guidon was a star. The Scotchman was prone to drink a little too much occasionally, notwithstanding a sin cere devotion to religious principles and a prefunctory compliance with his Idea of worship and reverence.

It has been definitely settled that she will play a Ixindon engagement at one of the leading theaters, but no de cision has been reached as to the plays she will present. It Is likely, however, that she will appear in repertoire. The engagement of Sam Bernard In "The Rollicking Girl" at the Herald Square theater.

Mr. Edeson begins his fifth an- nual tour with a four weeks' engagement at the Savoy theater, New York, com mencing August 28. An Interesting event at the opening of the Lyceum theater. New York, was the first presentation In this country of the work of Alfred Sutro, the brilliant author of "The Walls of Jericho" and "Mollen trave on Women." It was In lhe shape of a one-act play. "A Maker of Men," which preceded Augustus Thomas' comedy. "Mrs. LefflngweU's blnots." Margaret Illlnglon made a genuine hit as the wife and Ernest Lawford gave a good performance as the husband. There are but two parts In the play. The latest tip Is that when Sam Ber nard's New York season In "The Rollicking Girl" comes to a close Joe Coyne will leave the cast and Join the Henry W. Savage forces. If Raymond Hitchcock continues n success In "Easy Dawson" Coyne will have the star part In "The Yankee Consul." In case Hitchcock falls back on his old suc cess Coyne, It Is sHld, will go Into a new production as a featured member of the cast and will subsequently be added to the Savage list of stars. Coyne is one of the In dividual hits of "The Rollicking Girl" at present and has long been regarded by shrewd managers us a star possibility. Mabel Taliaferro has been selected to play the principal role of Nance Olden, tho reclaimed thief. In "In the Bishop's Car riage," soon to be presented In stage form. This Indicates that the management will utilize the youtlif ulness of the leading character to excuse the moral shortcomings of the heroine of this story. Miss Talia ferro Is a splendid selection for the role, as she Is youthful to the extent that but a season or two removed this clever young actress was regarded as a child prodigy. Arthur Byron will play the role of Lati mer, in support of Miss Taliaferro. The dramatization by Channlng Pollock was given a few trial performances In New England a week or two buck, and was highly spoken of by those who witnessed the original performances. Isabel Irving has consented, that Is, to wear tights when she appears as Roxana In Clyde Fitch's play, "The Toast of the Town," which he. has written for Viola Allen. It was left to Mr. Fitch to break the news to Miss Irving gently. He took Percy Anderson's costume plates and lay ing them before the actress, asked her If they were not very attractive. Miss Irving looked them over with expreslons of pleas ure, until finally she came upon one of the Romeo affairs, when she cried; "What in Heaven's name Is this?" Here is where Mr. Fitch's persuasive powers came into use. The fact that Miss Allen had worn much the same aorl of thing In "Twelfth Night" carried a good deul of weight with Miss Irving. Anyway, rather than dis appoint Miss Allen, she has consented to weur the costume In question. The one hundredth performance of Frank Daniels In "Sergeant Bruu" was obsorvod last Thursday night at the Knickerbocker theater, New York. In a way unique in the atrical annals. There were no souvenirs. Mr. Daniels In his inimitable speech after the ' second act referred to his pleasure that "Sergeant Brue" had rounded the century murk, and suggested that, though he believed souvenirs to be out of fashion, anyone wishing a souvenir could take home a chunk of Ice from the waer cooler. Mr. Daniels has been playing "Sergeant Brue" to record breaking business In New York and now, having completed a run which has exceeded In receipts all hot weather records at the Knickerbocker the ater, he will make a tour of the principal cities.
