Again. M'tls true, 'tis pity, and. pity 'tis
'tis true." Such men as Joe Brooks do ex
ist; happily they do rot .abound. Never
theiess, and spineless, weak enough to com
mit a crime and not bold enough to face It;
selfish enough to sacrifice anything and
anybody, and obtuse enough to think their
Incompetency Is "hard luck." Ibsen
touched on the type In "A Doll's House,"
and Clyde Fitch has presented It once or
twice, as In "The Climbers" and "Her Own
Way," but It remarried for Eugene Walter
to show. the Joe Brooks sort of man In Its
nakedness. And he has done It unspar
ingly. Two other types of mankind are
showrn each In strong contrast with the
other, and of the sort that really redeem
the world and Us people from the blight
that would soon fall upoD It If the Brooka
type predominated. And we all believe In
women like Mrs. Brooks, and are also con
vinced that Mr, Walter, In his Inexperience,
has taken his mother-in-law from a comic
supplement. Ditto the young Miss Harris.
The story of "Paid In Full" is very
brief. Joe Brooks Is the poorly pa d col
lector for a big steamship company. He
has asked for an Increase in pay, and has
been refused. He lives with his wife In
cheap apartments In Harlem, where they
endure the hardships of poverty, she with
good cheer because she loves her husband
and believes In him, he with constant
grumbling and discontent, which Is en
hanced by the nagging of his wl,e's mother.
Jlmsey Smith, superintendent for tho
steamship company, silently adores tan
wife, and keeps up a brave show of friend
ship for ths husband In hope of helping
him. Captain Williams, president of tho
company, Is a hard man of business, who
has fought his nay up from the foiecaatlo
of a California coasting sclioon, r, but he
knows men, and women, too. Brooks steals
to ploce out his salary, and Is caught. He
seeks to secure Immunity by suggesting
to his wife that she go to the rooms of
Captain Williams alone at night, telling
that whatever happens will only be known
to the three. She goes, only to find that
the captain Is not the ruffian he has gen
erally boon thought, and returns to her
husband with a receipt In full for his
defalcation, but disillusionized. Tne listener I
to ths tale Is privileged to project It
through the divorce court to a happy mar
riage between Mrs. Brooks and Jlmsey
Smith If he so desires. That ultimate re
sult Is hinted at with something like direct
It is In the telling that the tale derives
Its Interest. It Is human In most of Its
aspects; exagera.ed, as talcs general. y
are, for the purpose of more clearly es
tablishing the point Intended, but withal
drawn boldly and filled In deftly. It Is
ep.sod!c, rather than dramatic, yet Its
epUodis follow, logically and with some
thing like continuity. Devoid of psycho
logical depth, Its appeal comes from Its
human apect. It shows how a weak and
unworthy man hurrlte foiward to his own
destruction, while a woman of merit Is
freed from his Incumbrance, and each is
left to a destiny deserved
Whatever subtlety his literature may
lack, Mr. Walter makea up In his stage
craft. As with "The Wolf." the first of hla
plays to be seen here, the story Is projected
against a carefully prepared background.
The first act takes place. In a little four
room Harlem flat; the second In the tawdry
apartments of ths Brookses In a more
pretentious family hotel i the third In the
quarters of Captain Williams, where the
walla are decorated with the wheel of the
first 'schooner he commanded, and lighted
by the sidelights, 'red and green, of the
same vessel, and wherein the captain dis
plays trophies picked up during his South
Pacific wanderings. Hers' he tells the tales
of the women he has bought, and of one
who died of overfeeding; the others he
took more care of, putting them on diet.
Here also he receives Mrs. Brooks, come to
plead for her husband's liberty, but firmly
standing for her own good name, and here
he showa her that a man may be even
all he haa been said to be, and yet respect
a good woman. It was not a weakness on
the part of the gruff old seaman, but merely
the tribute that men of strength have al
ways paid to pure womanhood. The last
act occurs In the Brooks' roomsa In the
hotel. Here the .culprit nervously paces,
waiting the return of the woman he sent
out to pay his debt. She comes back and
hands hlra the paper that clears him; his
selfish Joy bursts forth, and then he de
mands to know the price she paid, under
taking to stand on his rights as a hus
band. Here is where the woman really
asaerts herself, and quietly and earnestly,
and with withering force, she shows him
how far he measures below the real stan
dard of a man. Thla is really the strong
est scene of the whole play. The third act
Is conceived with melodramatic force, but
It lacks the Intensity of ths closing scene
of the fourth set. Then the play rlntra
true to dramatic conceptions, and for a
rew moments it Is really great
The company that Is playing tne piece at
the Boyd la a thoroughly oompetent one.
Guy Bates Post, pleasantly remembered for
his excellent comedy work in "The Heir of
the Hoorah," has the part of Joe Brooks,
and gives it without sparing any of U
petty meanness. It Is a careful study of
a weak, selfish, contemptible cur, and is
done perfectly. Mr. Backus is presenting
a fine picture of the quiet and unobstruslve
but sterling Smith, and Mr. Copper rolls
and growls about the atage aa if be were
really walking the tossing deck of a pitch
ing schooner and goading a desperate crew
to Its work. Once or twice In the third act
he flashes out for an Instant another aide
of the old captain, and then gets back into
his shell. Miss Blandiuk la splendid as

the last act with great effect. Her denun

Anniversary of the City.
October !6, 190S, marks the anni
versary of the organisation of Bouth
Omaha as a city of the third class. It
Is anticipated that the Pioneer Hlatorlcal
society of South Omaha will get together
and fittingly celebrate the twenty-second
year of Bouth Omaha's uninterrupted
prosperity. The first village board waa
called to order and presided over by .
P. Savage. Daniel O Connell acted aa sec
retary to the board. C. M. Hunt, W. G.
Sloane, I. Breyton and F. S. Bllter were
the members ot the board. They held
their offices by the appointment of the
county commissioners. The first act of
the new city council on permanent or
ganisation was to pass an ordinance gov
erning Die sale of liquors In Bouth Omaha.
It is said ot that first council that no oni
could be found on the night of organise'
tlon to act as secretary until C. M. Hunt
made a special trip to Indian hill and per
suaded Dan O'Connell to come over and
act temporarily. Now the office Is one
of the coveted political offices of the
city government. Many pioneers of Bouth
Omaha will recall those days with com
fortlng and bright recollection. Bouth
Omaha had none of those hard struggles
for existence, for there was a great rsv
son for the rapid and steady growth of
the city, with none of the upe and downs
which pull the ordinary country village
through so many changes.
