A play In three acts, by Charles Jeffrey;
presented by Mr. Tim Murphy and his
company of players. The characters and
those who portray them:
David Stratton, a wealthy American
miner Mr. Tim Murphy
Virginia Stratton, his daun'iter
Miss Dorothy Snerrod
Countess Urosoff, his adopted daughter
Miss Minna Ferry
Count Uroaoff, a Russian exile

If ever Tim Murphy had a good play It
is this season. Often he has scored suc
cesses, but "Cupid and the Dollar" seems
to present unusual opportunities for the
genial actor to get to the heart of h!s
auc'lence, for It Is often the heart strings
that are touched, even though the piece
is essentially a comedy and the audience
Is laughing most of the time. Giving room
for clever humor," wonderful pathos and
that kind of playing that makes one wish
the whole family cpuld see It, this latest
of Tim Murphy's offerings was yet ac
corded ot.Iy an ordinary audience at Its
first performance In Omaha ThurFday
night, but It Is believed that the three re
maining presentations of the play . will be
better attended, as many of last night's
patrons remarked that it was the best
piece the star has had since the days of "A
Texas Steer." (
England Is the scene of the story's action
ard like some of Mr. Murphy's former
plays, acting and not acenery !s made the
primal object of the production, for tin
three acts have practically the tamo set
ting. As the title would indicate, much of
the play is concerned with the question of
marriages for money, and many a hard rap
is taken at the unions of Americnn heir
esses and foreign titles. However, the ac
tion of the piece brings forth one marriage
tl at is a love affair, even though the nrlnc .
pals are the daughter cf a wealthy Ameri
can miner and an English lord.
Starting with the love affair and re
sulting engagement between the western
born girl, who has a New York edu
cation, and Lord Douglas, who turns out
all right In the end. the utory leads
through a somewhat involved situation
that results from the desire of the en
gaged American girl to save her foster
sister from the scandal that would fol
low an exposure of her love for a for
mer sweetheart and her hate of the ex
iled Russian count whom she had mar
ried. The final scene of the first act depicts
the suspicion of the count, the despera- !
tlon of the English lord at what lie sup- '
poses la the faithlSMness of his be- j
trothed, the anguish of the suffering :
countess, who Is temporarily shielded by '
the announced engagement of Virginia to
the countess lover, and the happiness of
the "dad" of the girl at what he be-'
lleves to be best for his daughter and
himself. This situation continues till the
last scene, when the count Is exposed
and undoue and things end happily for
all others concerned.
onta of the fun cf the play arises from
the retired miner's decision to "turn
dude" In order to sava his daughter from
being ashamed of him. as be supposes.

everything proper lr haberdashery after
telling his valet In a former scene to go
to some place where cool weather would,
not bother him and to let him alone, all
add humor to the situations, and wltli
Tim Murphy presenting the character ono
may easily Imagine how well the work
According to custom, Mr. Murphy, his
pleasant face and one or two new stories,
responded before the curtain to a hearty
and prolonged, though not voluminous, ap
plause after the second act, and through
out the course of the play he was greeted
with that reception that only denotes recog
nition of satisfactory work. The same
voice, hair, facial expression and general
bearing, and that Indescribable humor that
only Tim Murphy can give to a role, all
have their part In the character of David
Stratton In "Cupid and the Dollar," and If
they ever fitted a role they do this one.
Miss Dorothy Slierrod und the other play
era of the company win Just recognition for
their efforts, Miss Snerrod, as the miner's
daughter, portraying the part with her
usual skill and strength. If any of the
parts may be called heavy In a comedy,
that carried by Miss Ferry Is In this one,
and she proves quite able to play It. The
accent of Mr. Brander . as the bad count
exiled from Russia and married for money
to an American girl, deserves mention for
him along with his portrayal of the cruel
husband, while Messrs. Hayes and Sams in
their parts also do well. The others In the
east are well selected.
"The Little Organ Grinder" at the
"The Little Organ Grinder," a four-act
musical drama by Hal Rcld of "Human
Hearts" fame, began a three days engage
ment at the Krug last night. Eleanor
Calnes, as Clarice Lyndon, the little organ
grinder, has the principal part and she
combines romance, pathos and humor In a
most versatile and charming manner.
The scene of the play ia laid In and
around New York and Includes the
Bowery, Staten Island, Amboy Road and
other well known places near the metropo
lis. The central telephone station on the
Bowery Is the location of one of the ex-
exd many thrilling climaxes In the pi ty
and the plot Is well carried to the eiid of
the last act, when everything Is mat's, all
right and everybody gets what Is (SDl'ng
